Senior center event shows wide variety of islanders

  • Apr 27, 2016 at 1:30AM

Earlier this month was the monthly "Current Events Day" at the Vashon Senior Center. It is a gathering of the most politically and socially aware people on the island: the whole spectrum. I was astounded at the depth and breadth of knowledge and experience present.

Sanders is best choice compared to Clinton’s neoconservatism

  • Apr 27, 2016 at 1:30AM

As someone who recognizes Bernie Sanders as the best candidate to represent my progressive beliefs and values, I want to be perfectly clear with those who try to bully, guilt or frighten me into supporting Hillary Clinton: I am not obligated to support any member of any party for president if I do not agree with the values he or she represents, or the judgment and experience he or she offers.

Support the Democratic nominee, regardless of who it is

I support Hillary Clinton for president for a variety of reasons. Starting with her lifelong advocacy for women and children and culminating with her extensive public service in both national and international affairs, I believe she will move the democratic agenda forward. I have not seen a credible Sanders plan, given that Republicans still hold majorities in so many state legislatures, governor's mansions and Congress. I think the revolution needs to bubble up from the bottom lest it fizzle out like the Occupy movement appears to have. I have appreciated Sanders delineation of the issues facing us (and, yes, moving Clinton to the left), his grassroots politics, integrity and taking the high road — until the first week in April. He then took a very low road, claiming Clinton was unqualified to be president, in a supposed tit-for-tat attack. In fact, Clinton never took the offered bait and had not made the same statement about him.
