Should HillBuzz be moved to the left side of DailyPUMA? I'm open to suggestions.

I used to welcome HillBuzz's articles when they just made logical, pro puma points. Whether or not HillBuzz was PUMA, they had important information to share. HillBuzz also genuinely seems to like Hillary Clinton. However, you can't like and respect a politician while dissing their closest supporters and allies, which HillBuzz has now started to do on a regular basis.

HillBuzz has now crossed over to total moderate conservative republican idealogy. While HillBuzz still professes to be supporters of Hillary Clinton, it would be unrealistic to see their future support for Hillary Clinton helping her, especially after they advocated the ouster of every democratic congress person, even the democrats that supported Hillary Clinton in 2008.

I believe removing the rotting head of the democratic party, Reid and Pelosi, is most important of all, yet Hillbuzz has not stated this as a goal. I find this very disturbing that HillBuzz would prefer to oust all democrats when just ousting the most vocal anti Hillary Clinton politicians would send a clear and loud message.

HillBuzz supporting Hillary Clinton in the future would be like Fox News supporting Hillary Clinton. While Hillbuzz appears to be pretty popular, they clearly are going after the moderate conservative crowd at the expense of Hillary Clinton supporters, and that is sad to see.

It is pretty obvious that HillBuzz will be supporting Sarah Palin for 2012. No matter what Hillary Clinton does for 2012 HillBuzz has already said and done things that will make any future support they may have for Hillary Clinton may look "polarizing" to traditional democrats in 2012.

Maybe Cannonfire had a point when mentioning accusations made by others that HillBuzz was being funded by conservative groups.

DailyPUMA will probably move HillBuzz to the left side column. Unfortunately, there is not enough room to bring the left column up to the top of the page, which means one will have to hunt for their blog.

I think HillBuzz was also the first to mention that Bill Clinton was in the hospital so DailyPUMA may lose part of what it is supposed to do, which is get out eclectic news about politics and Hillary Clinton as fast and efficiently as possible, if HillBuzz is moved to the left side column.

On the other hand, you can sign up for automatic HillBuzz email alerts whenever they release a spicy new article. DailyPUMA is open to other viewpoints on this topic, but for now it seems like Hillbuzz should be moved to the left side of DailyPUMA, no?

WOW, Here I've been reading Daily Puma for months and didn't know it was based on a "left" vs "right" thingy! I'm crushed! I was under the, obviously simplistic, notion that Daily Puma had enough chutzpah to let people swing on the pendulum from one side to the other and let the readers decide who they want to frequent. How could I have been so wrong! The light has come on...if you support Hillary, it's on the "good" side and if you don't, it's on the "bad" side and your post just could get "lost". I see. And it's a shame. Daily Puma is just another voice for Hillary and afraid of any other viewpoint. So much for chutzpah.

Lonni, if you have been reading DailyPUMA for months and did not notice that primarily PUMA blogs are on the right (as has been stated at the top of DailyPUMA for the past 12 months in the mission statement), then keep on reading since you find the content interesting.

There would probably be no dailypuma if not for the media hit squad that was put out in 2008 against Hillary Clinton. I would gladly move up the left column, which offers many divergent blogging view points, if I had the room.

For those who have not noticed, this is Daily-PUMA, which is the back up site for DailyPUMA and is not where active PUMA content is kept.

Anyways, I guess Lonni is a no vote. Any PUMAs want to chime in?

Had the DNC, aided by MSM, not stolen the nomination from Hillary Clinton, had she simply and truly LOST the nomination, PUMA would not have been created. We Hillary supporters would have, obviously, been upset and disappointed at her loss, but we would have had no motivation to protest the actions of the Dem Party and declare Party Unity My Ass. It was the hit on democracy that fired us up. Of course, Hillary was the only candidate for the Dem nomination worth getting fired up about.

I find it incredible that Lonni has read DP for months, and not picked up on the fact that Hillary's candidacy and the subsequent theft of the nomination from her are pretty much at the core of DP.

Regarding Hillbuzz, while I get your point, I prefer to refrain from making a judgement as yet. Following the actions of the Dem Party in 2008, many PUMAs swore to teach the party a lesson by helping defeat any Dem in 2010. Some still feel that across the board election loss is the only way to send a strong message to Pelosi, Reid, and their cohorts in the rigging of the 2008 primary.

Other PUMAs want to see the Obama supporters defeated and a greater balance in both the house and senate achieved.

Obviously, there are some negative consequences attached to the first option. On the other hand,
total loss in 2010 would make a powerful statement to the DNC.

Much to think about.

I'm just not sure that "punishing" Hillary Clinton supporters in the 2010 elections makes sense. Defeating both Reid and Pelosi, and making sure the republican party does not take full credit for it, is very essential to turning the tide in the democratic party.

Your point is well taken. Also, it may be even more necessary to support Dems in order to counter the ultra-conservative movement afoot. What a waste. This should be a good climate for more moderates to be elected (or retained) in office. Yet, even McCain is at risk of losing the nomination for senate to a conservative being supported by right wingers who don't want a moderate to win.

What a mess.

Domestic Violence You Tube Video "Burn it Down" by OnaKalima has been taken down by YouTube!

Message from from the director and first time filmmaker Ona Kalima...

"Thank you for writing to me. I am in the middle of moving, but was getting ready to write to you for help. I received an email that stated that my video had been removed for violating the community guidelines. I looked to the guidelines and couldn't see any I had violated. HELP! We had gotten up to nearly 7,000 views and now we have to start from scratch. I was starting to receive a lot of hate-oriented comments about being a "communist dyke" and stuff like that--what do you think??"

DailyPUMA thinks the PUMA community needs to contact YouTube. Suggestions for the best avenue to do this would be greatly appreciated. What is worse than images depicting violence against woman? Striking down a message about Violence against Woman. Shame on you YouTube for not having more common sense.

PLEASE FAX YouTUBE at 1-650-253-0001 and ask that OnaKalima's "Burn it Down" video be reinstated.

Warning: This Video may Cause you to Spill your Hot Coffee on your Lap.

From Annie Sweetie Oakley

All in the Family and Archie Bunker's Place.

All in the Family ran from 1971 to 1979 and featured Jean Stapleton and Carroll O'Connor as the wife and husband. All in the Family ended its run in 1979 but the show continued under the name Archie Bunkers Place, which then ran from 1979 to 1983. In the new version, Jean Stapleton has died and Archie Bunker now runs a bar.

In real life, Carroll O'Connor passed on in 2001, Jean Stapleton is still alive.

I saw Jean Stapleton in a movie last night called "A Matter of Sex". A Matter of Sex is a modern day (early 80's) suffragettes movie revolving around 8 women who went on strike because their bank would not promote them or pay them in line with their male counterparts.

Suddenly I saw the additional irony being played out in real life.

Jean Stapleton, who is still alive, was killed off in Archie Bunker's Place, whereas Carroll O'Connor, who passed on in 2001, outsurvived Jean Stapleton in the television show.

In fact, Carroll O'Connor would get another television series as well. However, Jean Stapleton could never use her famous character Edith because Edith had been killed off.

This is another example of a male getting to prolong and extend his career while the woman co-star role is prematurely snuffed out and can no longer be used by her for the rest of her career.
