Upcoming Events!

July 4th Celebration!!

As in past years, the Greene County Democrats will have an entry in the parade in Stanardsville on the 4th, and we will have a booth near the Courthouse where we will be handing out free bottles of water and providing information on our 2016 Democratic candidates - Jane Dittmar for Congress and Hillary Clinton for President.

Please join us in the parade, and help at the booth after the parade. We will assemble in front of the High School at 9:30 am with our float. The parade starts promptly at 10:00.

After the parade, join us at the Democratic booth; you will be surprised at the number of Democrats (and unhappy Republicans) you will meet.

No Tuesday Morning Coffee in July

We will not have the usual Tuesday Morning Coffee on the first Tuesday of the month in July (July 5th), because many of us will still be recovering from our July 4th activities the previous day.

July 17 - Evening Social and Potluck Supper - 5:00 pm

The July evening social and potluck supper will be Sunday, July 17, starting at 5:00 pm at the Episcopal Parish Hall, located on Ford Avenue behind the Grace Episcopal Church on Main Street in Stanardsville.

We encourage everyone to come and bring your favorite dish to share (not required). We will provide water and soft drinks; if you prefer something else, please bring it with you.

Parking for the Parish Hall is available behind the Hall off Ford Avenue, and along Ford Avenue and Main Street.

Reservations are not required. If you have any questions, you may call Lisa at 985-4832 or email: lisahystad@mindspring.com

News & Analysis

Excerpts From Hillary's Praise of Trump!

"Donald Trump’s ideas aren’t just different – they are dangerously incoherent. They’re not even really ideas – just a series of bizarre rants, personal feuds, and outright lies.

He is not just unprepared – he is temperamentally unfit to hold an office that requires knowledge, stability and immense responsibility. This is not someone who should ever have the nuclear codes – because it’s not hard to imagine Donald Trump leading us into a war just because somebody got under his very thin skin.

We cannot put the security of our children and grandchildren in Donald Trump’s hands. We cannot let him roll the dice with America. This is a man who said that more countries should have nuclear weapons, including Saudi Arabia. This is someone who has threatened to abandon our allies in NATO – the countries that work with us to root out terrorists abroad before they strike us at home.

He believes we can treat the U.S. economy like one of his casinos and default on our debts to the rest of the world, which would cause an economic catastrophe far worse than anything we experienced in 2008. He has said that he would order our military to carry out torture and the murder of civilians who are related to suspected terrorists – even though those are war crimes. He says he doesn’t have to listen to our generals or our admirals, our ambassadors and other high officials, because he has – quote – “a very good brain.” He also said, “I know more about ISIS than the generals do, believe me.” You know what? I don’t believe him.

He says climate change is a hoax invented by the Chinese, and he has the gall to say that prisoners of war like John McCain aren’t heroes. Exactly.

He praises dictators like Vladimir Putin and picks fights with our friends – including the British prime minister, the mayor of London, the German chancellor, the president of Mexico and the Pope. He says he has foreign policy experience because he ran the Miss Universe pageant in Russia."

How the GOP Stopped Caring About You!

Be sure to read this excellent piece in the Washington Post, by historain Heather Cox Richardson. It describes how the Republican party changed from the progressive party of Lincoln to the protectors of Corporate America today.
