J. Patrick Coolican wrote a smear piece.

This is exceptionally poor writing by J. Patrick Coolican:
>>>As Kelly Edinger, a delegate from Washoe County, put it: “On one side
>>>you’ve got a candidate with principles, on the other, Tammany Hall,”
>>>referring to the corrupt New York City political machine of the 19th
>>>and 20th centuries. It was a wildly exaggerated accusation, but a
>>>reflection of insurgent attitudes.


Hey Coolican .... this sentence Was aimed at McWarmonger's camp, right?

Perhaps you should re-consider your articles title as it is somewhat misleading. Per something like "Nevada Democratic Caucuses Left Their Mark on Hopefuls"

Just a thought!

I am amazed at how many of us continue to allow ourselves to be led, like sheep to a slaughterhouse. I'm even more amazed by the numbers of us who have been indoctrinated into the idea that we are led by a "governmental system". I have some very frightening news for you, my brothers !!! Our so called "leaders" are as much a part of the flock as we are. They play their roles in this drama called
"life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness" just as we do. As long as we are satisfied and content with what the "real holders of power" give us through our "nipple of choice" then we will all be allowed to nestle in and suckle to our hearts content. But, when the bitch's milk turns sour or no longer satisfies our need some of us make the choice to seek out other, alternative sources for our nutrient and we take the chance of losing our grip on what we've come to know as "security" and "freedom" and can be forced away from the breast of life by one who shows a greater willingness to take and be happy with what we have grown tired of and we'll be left to starve, wither, and die.

We can yell, scream and say we only want fairness and truth but, as Jack Nicholson so eloquently put it, we "can't handle the
"truth". This is not about NBC, FOX, or ABC. It's not about CBS. It's not about Sean Hannity, Bill O'Reilly or Rush! They are just tools, albeit very useful ones. This is about a mere handful of men, not just ordinary men, who wake up every morning and put on their pants one leg at a time, like you and I do. I'm talking about the wealthiest and most powerful men in the entire universe. The ones who own everything that we know in our lives. Men who've never done anything for themselves since the day they popped out of theirs mother's vagina. The Men who allow us only what they deem necessary to keep us in line, quiet and manageable. Men who dictate what we see, what we hear, what we say and what we do. This thing called "media" is, in reality, their "medium". Used by them to inject a constant flow of mind altering subliminal directives into our feeble little meaningless minds that tells us what to buy, how to dress, what to eat, who to listen to and, oh yes ... who to VOTE FOR! They control our very lives! I know, I know ... sounds a little "out there", right? So I guess it's working pretty well then and therein lies the magic of their power.

You think you want the "real truth"? I suggest devoting 2 hours of your life to watching a movie. But let me warn you! This will scare the crap out of you. Friday the 13th, Scream, Poltergeist, that is kid stuff... this is for grownups! If you can watch it with an open mind you will be forever changed! .... the movie!

May god have mercy on our souls!
