As much as I hate to admit it, yeah, the lack of any "From:" line on that letter makes it hard to say if anything untoward was going on. That could have been from the HRC campaign itself, and I don't blame a campaign for trying to lay the groundwork for itself. What's more obvious is that the DNC was following that line of reasoning itself, but without a letter saying "Let's do this. HRC is in the bag." from the DNC well before any primaries had started, I can't say there's much that can be levelled at them from this specific letter.

While I am slightly bothered by manipulation of the press, that's more of an open secret than anything. We all know it's going on in one form or another and it's silly to deny it. I wish it wasn't happening, but there's not much you can do to stop it either.

Seeing some buzz that the DNC platform committee voted to reject the $15 minimum wage?

...

...

...

The democratic party consensus has settled for more then a year on the idea that the minimum wage needs to be a lot higher, just not $15 in every part of the US.  They want a 66% increase (with some areas going higher) rather then a 106% increase (with some areas going higher).  And now you are saying there is "buzz" that their position remains unchanged.  In other news, the sun rose in the east and Bernie Sanders fans felt victimized.

Also, mainiac got offended and snarky. But for the rest of us, it was Tuesday. ON A SATURDAY.

EDIT: To wit, someone says, "Oh hey, heard this thing happened?" and your response is to characterize it as victimization. If your skin was any thinner, you'd be transparent.


I'm seeing conflicting reports on whether the proposal made it into the draft platform or not. Some outlets are saying yes, others saying no. Which is kind of bizarre, unless they voted one way and then revoted and voted differently.

Now that's an original insult. I'll sig it.

Yeah... This is why I very rarely post in this thread anymore, because it hit this point where I literally can't say anything without this reaction.  If I do post lately, I usually very pointedly avoid expressing an opinion, and only point out something I'd like to see discussion on.  But the response doesn't change.  I didn't know the details of the DNCs position on minimum wage, and would have been happy to learn the information shared without the snark.

You forgot the part where his tone implies that he is the actual victim here. That's the most important part, after all.

In other news, when confronted with Bernie Sanders fans grinding the same axe, Redking stuck his fingers in his ears and said LALALA NO THEY DIDN'T.

Sad man, why are you so thin skinned?  All I did was observe something.

I was going to add that we're probably in for 1-2 pages wherein it's revealed that we're all the villains who mercilessly mock and taunt the poor beleaguered hero, but figured that was unnecessarily piling on.

But fuck it...like a desperate Protoss warrior, we need more pile ons.

Not my fault if it continues to be true.

Seriously....CHILL.

No mention was made of Clinton or Sanders or implications of anything. SalmonGod literally just said "Hey, heard this this thing happened" with no analysis or finger-pointing and you go batshit defensive. It's getting really, REALLY tiresome.

LITERALLY all you have done here is personal attacks.  This was a conversation about an item on a party platform.  You have not posted a single word about the actual discussion.

Fight! Fight! Fight!

Er but really...  You two are much better informed than me, and I learn a lot from your posts.  When you aren't hatesnogging.  Then it's just entertaining, but not really in a good way.

Yeah I know Redking is provoking you, Mainiac, but you're very thin skinned.  Stop reacting so much, don't let it be personal.
except in PMs and my fanfic.
