A dose of humbled beginnings: From our history to the modernization of our present we now have the platform of social media to contribute in real-time. I watched the democratic debate and tweeted my response.

Last night’s debate showed a much more heated Hillary Clinton. Bernie Sanders said the minimum wage should be raised to $15.00, she swallowed hard and responded with her formula and intention to raise it to $12.00 dollars, while she stood there wearing an expensive pearl necklace and matching earings complementing her designer clothes. It was as if she was doing the American people a favor by raising it to $12.00. While Bernie stood hard and clear for $15.00 dollars an hour. She sneered and laughed at Mr. Sanders throughout the night.
Sam Stein, Senior Politics Editor from the Huffington Post called it an opaque answer she gave about support for raising the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour.
It was a modern day play Hillary Clinton as the Queen bestowing her small gifts to the American people and as if she was too tired and high and mighty to be bothered with one more democratic debate. I kept hearing the word “I” in Hillary’s voice each time she tried to explain and convince the American people that her vote to support President Bush to invade Iraq was a terrible mistake and cost many lives and 1.7 trillion dollars and neither President Bush nor Hillary Clinton has apologized for this.
Sam Stein, Senior Politics Editor from the Huffington quoted the following. You can refer to his summarized and commentary on last night democratic debate below.
“The worst foreign policy blunder in the modern history of this country.”
I add without the steady guidance of a conscience mind to consider all the ramifications and the lives that continue to pay. To define it as a blunder is really putting it mildly. Only those families of REAL people in the middle east, our European countries and the United States has paid the most precious price, their loved ones lives.
This one impulsive decision opened a whole can of venomous evil slithering and hiding in every part of the world. The topple of Iraq’s leader led to ISIS and the Taliban threatening our lives globally and daily. I really don’t know how you can vote for her egregious and impulsive mistake to support President Bush. She constantly reiterates and refers to her record and experience on Foreign policy, yet her actions supports her decisions made on foreign policy to be faulty, futile and disastrous. Libya was another result of ignoring the tensions and the danger as Secretary of State that ultimately took the lives of the U.S. Ambassador and the other officials just trying to do their job in a foreign country.
Today Ms. Clinton travels to Hollywood to attend another fundraiser on her behalf given by George Clooney to add to her special interest groups, superPACs, and wall street acquaintances and friends and their meaty contributions. Today Mr. Sanders on the other hand travels to the Vatican, invited to speak in a conference addressing “The Immorality of Wealth Inequality”.
As I have said before anyone in her position as president will have a lot of favors to return and her support is depended upon their money given to her candidacy. Perhaps they’ll give her a month or two to get comfortable with the lay and law of the land in the senate and congress. But she has to remember their support because once again she will look forward to their support for another term. It’s really a matter of I’ll scratch your back and you scratch mine and it sets a distasteful precedence in her presidential term if she were to become president.
Yet there is a history of parody that replays itself each time we come to a presidential election. Duplicity is an integral part in elections, politics and the wealthy. Partisan politics are the backdrop of a humming and skulking buzz of bees and the sting can serve to remind you those diminishing once again the people who belong to the 99.9% of Americans who continue to pay their taxes and continue to dream of an improved and better life therefore voting for Mr. Bernie Sanders to lead the people out of bondage. Mr. Sanders perhaps leads like Moses in the Ten Commandments forging ahead to win and implement new rules, regulations, laws and policies of how we change and include every human life in this country to help, grow, and prosper.
I am imagining a real game of chess on the senate floor at this very moment. Whether a pond, rook, bishop, or a knight they will strategically be placed until check mate. The pond, a front shield taking the fall. The rookie placed accordingly to thrash across the board in this case the senate floor. Oh and the Bishop clearly strategically resonating with those who cannot separate church from state within reason, rational, and fairness. Hoping the valiant knight can save the party behind the mask of a steel shield not revealing his/her true identity yet. Continuing with this draconian mid-evil or athenian play I found it interesting that Sam Stein, Senior Politics Editor from the Huffington Post said “Yes, the fact that the “villain” in this particular drama happens to be admired and supported by many others.” Ouch!
I give kudos to Sam Stein (Senior Politics Editor from the Huffington Post) who so eloguently said, “history has outpaced Secretary Clinton”; and took her and her husband to task for the use of the phrase “super predator” during their advocacy for the 1994 crime bill.” Mrs. Clinton did apologize for this but not to the families of the Iraq War.
Mrs. Clinton’s stance regarding guns accessible through the black market or the gun dealers was commendable. She said, “This is not a laughing matter. Ninety people on average a day are killed or commit suicide.” But for the NRA they continue to pay lobbyists to talk to politicians in congress who continue to defend the weapons and prevent stricter rules, laws, and regulations to prevent now 33,000 deaths a year and many are soft target shootings here in the United States. Put in perspective and comparing this astronomical number far exceeds terrorists attacks and military civilian deaths fighting terrorists abroad.
