Just this guy, you know. Extra credit identifying that one.

You could describe me as a recovering Southern Baptist. Surprisingly, given my background, my politics tend toward progressive.

I am a vegetarian and don't drink, smoke, or do drugs. I'm not much into movies, but do enjoy live theater. I am a singer/songwriter, sometimes recording engineer, and also host a weekly open mic in Long Beach.

Other hobbies include law (I am not an attorney) and graphic arts.

Professionally, I have programmed computers, developed web sites, and developed and used cutting edge technology marketing.

Guess I'm just your basic 21st century Renaissance dude.

And as my late friend, Roz Larman, once told her radio audience, "All this, ladies, and he cooks, too."

If Bernie loses bad tonite, I won't be surprised if he concedes and drops out.
mcgeo52 comments on Mar 11, 2020:
It is not just counting the mail in ballots that is holding up California delegate counts. Like many other states, only a part of the delegates are allocated in the primary. The rest are allocated at the convention. The good news for Bernie is that he should do very well at that stage.
I talked voting today at work and got this info from some of the Trumpers.

This bitch has no idea what justice is. The man was acquitted on all counts except possession of the gun. Her calling him the killer is actionable in a law suit. If she wants justice for the victim, why isn't she advocating that the cops find the real killer? Maybe the only other suspect is white, so it had to be the brown guy?

Klobuchar is only staying in to keep Bernie from getting delegates from Minnesota. The DNC's strategy all along has been to have as many candidates as possible so it becomes impossible for any one candidate (i.e., Bernie) to get a majority.

mcgeo52 comments on Mar 1, 2020:
No way. Biden would do worse against Trump than Hillary did. He is just as much a tone deaf neoliberal out of touch with the working class as Hillary. Obama knows there is no way Biden can win. He doesn't endorse him because he doesn't want that on his record. The one thing that Obama can, and should, do, but probably won't, is to make sure that the super delegates don't deny Bernie the nomination if he goes into the convention with over 1,600 delegates.

🤥 Can't Pardon Stone -- 🤗 [politico.com]
mcgeo52 comments on Feb 28, 2020:
The writer of the article is clearly misinformed. The Constitution prevents the President from pardoning a verdict of guilty in an impeachment by the Congress. The reason is that the President's pardon power derives from the fact that prosecution is an act of the Executive (i.e., the President), therefore the Executive is the one with the power to pardon. The one exception is impeachment, which is not an act of the Executive, but of Congress.

So in this election we have the Putin/Trump party running against the DNC.
mcgeo52 comments on Feb 23, 2020:
Bernie has taken the lead and will probably go into the convention with a plurality, but not a majority, of the delegates. I won't be surprised if he has placed first in 30 or more states. If the DNC uses the super delegates to nominate someone other than Bernie under those circumstances, they will lose to Trump. They will also alienate enough voters that the future of the party may be in doubt.

mcgeo52 comments on Feb 21, 2020:
Per Nate Silver at 538.com, Bernie will probably finish first in all but two of the states voting/caucusing between now and the end of Super Tuesday. Nate says Minnesota goes for Klobuchar and Alabama goes for Biden. Bernie will probably have a large plurality of the votes going into the convention, and may well have finished first in 30 or more states. If that is the case, the DNC has two choices: 1) Acknowledge the will of the voters and nominate Bernie, or 2) Tell the voters, "Fuck you." If they choose the second option, they will lose to Trump and may end up killing the party altogether. I hope they are not stupid. I really hope that @Robecology is correct in his optimistic vision.

I can see where there might be mental health concerns running a movie about suicides. Still not sure I agree with the request, but it is what it is.

There is no question that is what trump did. For the Republicans who argued there was no crime, that argument doesn't work. For the ones who said there may have been a crime but it didn't rise to the level of impeachment, the crime in this case is Bribery. Article II, Section 4 makes it absolutely clear that is grounds for impeachment. Pelosi blew it by not including this as an Article the first time.
