Re: “Dickson Street

For those who remember the "real" Dickson Street the current strip is a disgusting shadow of its former funky self. "They" didn't "Keep Fayettevile Funky," and with a $6 million overpriced parking garage and the prospect of an enlarged Walmart Art Center, there will be more rich people, higher prices and lots more cars mixing with the drunk pedestrians. It's time to leave. My friend Dubie says "Put the Dick back in Dickson Street," and while I agree with the sentiment I think there's not enough Viagra in the world for that dysfunctional business district to ever get it up again.

Re: “Recommended Sunday read: Donald Trump's history on race

Who's endorsed by David Duke? Abraham Lincoln must be doing back flips in his grave.

The Dixie-publicans of the Solid (New) South have spoken: Trump's their man!

Re: “Rep. Sheilla Lampkin dies after battle with ovarian cancer

My condolences to the family of Rep. Lampkin.

Question: Since the primary is passed, how does state law prescribe succession in the G.A.? Does the Dem Party get to appoint a replacement candidate for the November ballot? Does the governor get to appoint a temporary successor until the election?

Re: “Hello from Philadelphia

Vanessa,

She's out only from the convention chairmanship, not the DNC. As usual, it's cosmetic. But it is an admission that DWS' star is in decline. At least until President/Queen Hillary is elected. Then DWS will get her reward in political heaven. If she loses to her Bernie-backed opponent in the primary she will be damaged goods and the only job in govt she could get would be in a HRC admin.

Re: “Hello from Philadelphia

Ready for Wall Street? We (the 1%) are With Her!

It's no surprise that the Arkansas Old Guard who kept Clinton in the governor's office in the 1980s and rode the DLC train to DC in '93 are salivating over the opportunity to leave their K Street lobbying jobs (temporarily, of course) and their corporate suites for a shot at another turn in the administration. Glory glory hallelujah.

Re: “Hillary Clinton introduces VP nominee Tim Kaine

Norma, for someone who reads Salon regularly, for you to profess not to comprehend the connection between Hillary and Wall Street, well... better try a Google search! What part of $250k per speech which transcripts she won't release don't you get?

And Kaine is widely known to be as much of a supporter of TPP as the Queen of Wall Street herself. Oh wait, that was UNTIL Bernie called her out on it. And now--surprise!--King Kaine has suddenly reversed himself. Coincidence?

And if you have forgotten how to Google search, here are some recent articles *I* found at the top of *my* search results:

http://www.bloomberg.com/politics/articles…

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/wonk/w…

Trust me, there's so much more.

So rule on, Queen and King, rule on. The Royal Two of you will no doubt be LESS BAD than your orange disloyal opposition, but you represent precisely the kind of money-grubbing, average American-disdaining, compulsive-lying (in the case of Her Majesty), Washington-Wall Street insiders that Bernie HONESTLY questions (Trump only dishonestly so).

If you want your subjects to embrace your rule, you'd better take off your crowns and renounce your thrones, and pick up torches and pitchforks and join the people to fight against the very forces that you pretend--so lately--to oppose. Until and unless, few will take you seriously. Because if you don't the fact is that the Queen and King you will be come November, will even yet be but servants to the Empire.

In the meantime, you can continue calling out the Orange One for his Bread and Circuses of Hate strategy, and you can run as strong supporters of abortion rights and gun control while hoping voters don't look too closely at your continuing equivocations on economic issues, your outright evasion on your ties to the Wall Street Empire, and your continuing commitment to secrecy and denial of your own ethics issues. Those of us who are paying attention and who aren't dazzled by Hillary's not being Trump, and her vapid slogans (Stronger Together? Huh?), and her unquestioning and unalloyed fealty to King Obama, the drone warrior-chief, deporter-in-chief, and Wall Street defender-in-chief.

I'm still hoping for change, and I guess I'll have to wait at least another four years. Meanwhile, I'll vote for the BEST candidate on the ballot in my estimation: Jill Stein.

As a side note, every real progressive in a red state should vote the Green Party candidate Dr. Stein. A vote for Hillary will not accomplish anything other than keep a REAL progressive from ever having a chance to challenge the ethically challenged, out of touch Democrats, first in the fall presidential debates, and subsequently to force the DNC to abandon their lingering subservience to Clintonism and the DLC, and start taking seriously the Progressive Movement which remains committed to furthering the ideals, policies, and goals of the New Deal, the Great Society, and the antiwar movement that the party once stood for.

We need a real leader, and I hope that Hillary can turn over her old fig leaf and become the truly transformational president we've needed ever since FDR. I believe that far beneath the multiple hardened shells she's accumulated over the years is someone with the potential to be that person. But I grew up in D'arkansas. I voted for Bill Clinton for governor in the first election I could vote in. I've watched the two of them ever since. I voted for Bill in '82, and I've regretted that vote ever since. I've never voted for him since. If Hillary becomes president, she'll have four years to earn my respect and support, and I might find myself voting for a Clinton again for the first time since '82. But her choice of Citizen Kaine for her VP gives me little reason for optimism. Hope is all I have.

Re: “Human Rights Campaign on Donald Trump's anti-LGBTQ record

David Duke will lose the Senate race but who knows, he may be in line for a presidential appointment in the Trump Admin. Perhaps to head up the EEOC?

Re: “Tim Kaine morning line

Mark Pryor appears to be angling for a position in the Clinton Admin. I can't imagine what he'd actually be qualified to do in the executive branch, other than perhaps an ambassadorship to some small foreign country, e.g. Honduras, where he could assure the fascist government that Hillary will continue to help them stamp out campesino uprisings. The only thing recommending him to any government job would be simply as payback for his FATHER's support for the Clintons over the years.
