    Don't have an issue with people wearing or flying the Confederate flag or flying the Christian flag above the American flag.
    I appreciate them self identifying, it helps me to more quickly determine the type of nutcase I'm dealing with.

    What was a teenager doing in a bar to begin with? 
    Was there any adult supervision?

    On Saturday, Bree Newsome, a 30-year-old African-American woman, was arrested at the state Capitol after scaling the 30-foot flagpole and unhooking the Confederate flag. As police officers shouted at her to come down, Bree Newsome shimmied to the top, took the flag in her hand and said, "You come against me with hatred and oppression and violence. I come against you in the name of God. This flag comes down today." Newsome recited Psalm 27 and the Lord’s Prayer as she brought the flag down.

    ^^^ Told everybody who would listen, sharing water fountains and bathrooms was a slippery slope.

    The 1984 elections were considered the fairest and freest elections Nicaragua had experienced in over 50 years. 
    I don't recall corrupt elections being a big issue as long as those in power served the purposes of American corporate interests over those of the Nicaraguan people.

    Until the Hornets demonstrate the capability to contend for a playoff spot on a regular basis it is difficult to imagine any top tier talent subjecting themselves to what has to be an extremely aggravating situation in Charlotte for the players. 
    Short of that occurring, the only way I envision any possibility of Steph playing here is just prior to his retirement.

    That somehow seems eerily familiar. 
    Guess which American party has only won the popular vote for president once since 1990?
    No wonder republican controlled legislatures around the country are doing everything in their power to limit opportunities for minorities to vote.
    Voter suppression? 
    The Sandinistas and GOP apparently share much in common.

    If you are a peasant in Nicaragua or Cuba... yes.
    Hence Bernie Sanders statement in your OP.

    Below is the textbook definition of Nicaragua prior to the Sandinistas overthrowing the Somoza family in 1979.  A family that had been in power since 1936.
    American corporations and a few local plutocrats, got filthy rich off the slave labor of the vast majority of Nicaraguans.  For decades the American government didn't give a damn about the Nicaraguan people.  Just as long as the Somoza family remained loyal to the US and our corporations, it was all good.
    The Carter Administration cut off economic support to Nicaragua in 1979 because of the Somoza regime's rampant human rights violations and corruption.  Once US support was withheld the Somoza's were soon out of power.
    Finally, the Nicaraguan people had a government that better represented their interests.  Housing, medical care and education were priorities instead of enrichment of a few plutocrats and big American corporations.
    Of course that was heresy to the Reagan administration that was soon to come to power.

    Correct:  We've got the foxes watching the hen house.

    Not a Dem.
    I've condemned what Hillary has done as it appears to conflict with the law in an attempt to obscure her political communications.  I also condemn what Jeb Bush, Mitt Romney and Sara Palin have done to hide their political correspondence from the public.
    Bottom Line:  Both parties are doing it. 
    I suspect that is why all these high profile politicians are able to get away with it so easily. 
    What the GOP is attempting to do in Wisconsin makes the situation worse, not better.  Notice how they are all evasive and secret about the source of the legislation.  None of them want to be held responsible for their willful actions to eliminate the public's ability to monitor their activities.  A fine example of crony politicians attempting to protect their crony puppet masters legislation from public scrutiny.
    These two parties need to go.
