The national coordinator for the Alliance at IBM said he's combing through reports of thousands laid off from IBM plants around the country. Several of those now-jobless employees are from Vermont's Essex Junction facility.
J C: Check the boxes for Clinton pick: Black [NO] Female [NO] Hispanic [NO] Liberal [well, kind of maybe] Christian [YES] White [YES] Straight [YES] So where is the diversity? Seems Eliz Warren has too much baggage with her claiming to be Native American, and she is kind of a loud mouth, so she was out. Cory Booker, the black guy, also has skeletons in his closet, but he seems likeable, but just a little too friendly with only the black issues so he is out. So, who is left? Well, seeing that the Democrats only had Clinton and a fill in that drifted over from as an Independent and declares that he is a known Socialist, the Democrats really did not have much of a field to choose from. The same with picking a VP for Clinton. There are those who want a good solid Democratic Party, but in actuality, there was only ONE declared Democrat running and that was Clinton so they really had no other choice than to nominate her as the official Democratic Party candidate. Where I come from, that is called "slim pickings", but there is nothing slim about Clinton. You could add an 'e' to that and call it "slime" as nothing seems to stick, and she sure wiggled out of what the FBI director painted as the exact charges that should have been filed against her....but where was the intent? There was "Slick Willie" and now there will be "Slick Hillary" with their eyes on the oval office. I wonder if she understands that she will be sitting at the same desk that Monika was under back when Bill was in office. Not to worry, Americans. The novelty of Hillary Clinton will wane dramatically between now and November when her dirty laundry will be aired for all to see (and enjoy). It may make for a great TV movie, however. I, for one, am looking forward to see the gauntlet thrown down and the real Hillary emerge, riding in on her broom like a Halloween witch as she transforms herself into the horned demon that she is!
