Recognizing teachers early on in careers -- The award, created by Lowell Milken and the Milken Family Foundation, was created 31 years ago to honor top educators across the country... This year, 44 educators across the country have or will be presented the award... "When I was in school, I was fortunate to have a number of outstanding teachers and I was always somewhat shocked by the fact that there was no mechanism, no opportunity for these teachers to be honored, celebrated and recognized," Milken said. Because of that, one of his top priorities when he started the Milken Family Foundation was to find a way to recognize educators. read more

And here's a revelation for you. Your side isnt the majority of the nation. Actually, most of the nation hates you Democrats. That's why you have lost. You've ruined this nation, culturally and morally. And it's just sad we have these fake Republicans in office and they cant get anything done.

It's a sad time for this nation. We have morally bankrupt "leaders" on both sides.

I'm a registered Independent. And I've always been a registered Independent except before my state's caucus because I had to be a registered Democrat in order to caucus for Bernie Sanders. After the election I changed back to being a registered Independent.

Registered Independents outnumber registered Republicans and registered Democrats.

And while most so-called Independents, when pressed, will favor one party over the other ... and in today's political climate I certainly favor Democratic policies -- but also have voted for both Bushes and Dole in '96.

You keep wanting to insult people in the most singular way -- "liberal", "Democrat", (most of the country "hates you") -- yet until I came along you were totally clueless to everything from the Veterans Affairs to healthcare to tax cuts to what the Red Summer 1919 was (and I'm white and you're black!) ...

You know what I hate? Stupidity.

Did he use the Clinton Foundation? You know that Foundation that mysteriously dried up after Hillary lost?

Hillary isn't the right comparison, John Edwards is ...

Edwards Charged With Election Finance Fraud
www.nytimes.com

John Edwards, the former Democratic senator from North Carolina and nominee for vice president in 2004, was once one of his party's most promising young stars. But on Friday he found himself in a stunning fall from grace -- in a courtroom in North Carolina, being read his rights.

Earlier in the day, a federal grand jury indicted him on charges that he violated federal campaign finance laws by "secretly obtaining and using" contributions from wealthy benefactors to conceal his mistress and their baby while he was running for president in 2008.


Edwards ended up being not guilty on one misdemeanor count and a mistrial for the remaining counts. The point of Edwards isn't the legal fallout, it's that rich donors for Edwards paid hush money to a mistress.

With Trump (unlike John Edwards) we get a two-fer = Trump & hush money and Trump banging a PORN Star.
