  1. I really shouldn't have been surprised, either. This is him. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/05/30/us/politics/black-voters-impeachment.html
  2. If anone else is interested in who the 95 were, here is the list. Was disappointed to see my guy on it. https://thehill.com/homenews/house/453638-here-are-the-95-democrats-who-voted-to-support-impeachment
  3. @ren hoek I read a 538 piece from yesterday that he only had one poll in which he got the 1% needed and you need three. You could qualify on polling or donors to start. But the 1st tiebreaker was to qualify on both. I know they rejected an open ended poll that would have helped Bullock, but I can't find a list of acceptable polls. In looking, though, I saw ABC and Vox did mention Gravel in their article about this debate. It's a CNN fail. ETA - Found It: Polling Method: Register 1% or more support in three polls (which may be national polls, or polls in Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, and/or Nevada) publicly released between January 1, 2019, and 14 days prior to the date of the Organization Debate. Qualifying polls will be limited to those sponsored by one or more of the following organizations/institutions:Associated Press, ABC News, CBS News, CNN, Des Moines Register, Fox News, Las Vegas Review Journal, Monmouth University, NBC News, New York Times, National Public Radio (NPR), Quinnipiac University, Reuters, University of New Hampshire, Wall Street Journal, USA Today, Washington Post, Winthrop University. Any candidate’s three qualifying polls must be conducted by different organizations, or if by the same organization, must be in different geographical areas.
  4. Probably just bad reporting or editing. He's not a threat and is legitimately missing the debate based on the pre-determined rules.
  5. @identikit, yes, Sept debates are much tougher to qualify and are expected to eliminate at least half the candidates.
  6. I noticed that, also. He lost the tiebreaker to Bullock because he qualified on donors only.. But the article mentioned all other entrants that missed the cut exc. for Gravel.
  7. Progressives hate Joe (This is one of the articles that led me to my Harris guess. She made top three)
  8. Also my top two (after Klobuchar). Based on everything I've read recently, I feel like it will be Harris because she seems to be of interest to both moderates and progressives. We'll see what the next debate brings in the way of "moments". Tomorrow is Selection Thursday btw.
  9. Here's some related conflating. This t-shirt was on sale at the Netroots (grew out of DailyKos) convention this weekend. https://jewishinsider.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/07/IMG_3178-768x1024.jpg Johnathan Greenblatt. ADL:" while the list on the t-shirts “includes antisemitism among things to ‘resist,’ this claim that Zionism is one of these horrible types of discrimination is, ironically, antisemitic.”
  10. @Bob Sacamano I've been happy with the Brother 2380,which may be predecessor model to the one Galileo linked and also shows on the page. That's not a good price, though.
  11. So I went over and listened to Sanders and Nina Turner at the Hahnemann rally. Both were compelling speakers. Sanders plans to intro legislation in the Senate for a fund to help municipalities buy troubled hospitals. He stayed on message except for one "Don't let Trump divide us" at the end. They played him off to Takin It To The Streets.
  12. "very unpopular & unrepresentative Congresswomen" If the goal is to paint them as the face of the Democratic Party, this isn't the way it's done.
  13. Thanks, I'll read. I'm not a M4All fan. Just saying, if you're looking to make for-profit management of hospitals look bad, the Hahnemann situation, where they use words for the owner like "plundered", is helpful to your argument. Previous Sanders' quote: "The situation in Philadelphia illustrates the entire problem: In a city with one of the highest poverty rates in the country, a major hospital serving low-income communities is on the verge of laying off 2,500 people, abandoning 500 medical residents, and closing its operations thanks to an investment firm looking to make as much money as possible in a corporate fire sale."
  14. I haven't been back in the area long enough to be familiar with all of the history, but many blame the hospital's failure on the management and profit goals of its for-profit owner.
  15. Sander will be in Philly today protesting closure of Hahnemann hospital. This is a 170+ year old hospital that serves a lot of low income folks and also is teaching hospital for Drexel U. It is being closed down by the for-profit company that bought it within the last two years and has, since the announcement. filed for bankruptcy. It is tailor-made for his campaign health care argument, so maybe not totally selfless. I'm not generally a fan, but, if he can shine more light on the situation in time to do something, I welcome him. https://www.phillyvoice.com/bernie-sanders-center-city-hahnemann-university-hospital-closure/
