The New York Times took a double-barrelled shot at Bernie Wednesday. An op-ed painted him as out of step with real progressives and yesterday's news. An editorial blog speculated on cabinet posts, platform planks and other tangible goods as his goal.
Bernie and Hillary are to be tested in the upcoming weeks. Can Bernie take the moral strength of his movement and employ it in the upcoming election? Can Hillary accept his vision and turn it into votes?
Thank you for reawakening a wave of excitement within the Democratic Party. Thank you for championing a list of issues that I could heartily agree with, and for refusing to be distracted from your agenda by the usual mudslinging and other negative campaigning tactics so common in politics today.
It takes nothing away from Senator Sanders, and the millions of voters he has mobilized, to observe that deeper currents are at work that have created a political climate which has sharply influenced both him and Secretary Clinton.

Much of our future is reliably unpredictable, and what more so than the moments when mass movements suddenly break out and sweep across our world?
There it was. Very pure, very simple and very direct in the bio posting in LinkedIn by alt.media journalist Cat Watters.

Appalachia has long been in America's sacrifice zone, metaphorically and literally. Big Coal has plundered thousands of seams, ripped the tops off 500 mountains, extracted the land's wealth, poisoned its streams and rivers, and left the people destitute. But Appalachia is hardly America's only sacrifice zone.
As the hard fight over the Trans Pacific Partnership ("TPP") proceeds, it is important not to confuse the foulness of the TPP's proposed rules with ...
"People can't ignore my book," says Dr. Micah White, PhD. Well, people can, but once they've read the award-winning activist's innovative call-to-ar...
Well, it can be argued that as disaffected Americans we are all outliers now, and Alt.M is taking its rightful place as an army of "authentic" journalists to render, broadcast and render its opinion and verdicts on our struggles.

Remember! Remember yourselves as you were when you were in your teens, 20's and 30's. Remember what it means to be unafraid of the future. Remember when you felt when you knew you could make a difference. And then remember to vote. It's back in there, someplace. Vote the youth you have never lost.
