“If I slipped on a banana peel leaving here it would be on the front page of the papers,” Bernie Sanders said. “But when we talk about the great crisis facing this country very hard to get media attention for a lot of obvious reasons. And if I was standing here tonight and making some vicious attack against Hillary Clinton or anybody else it’d be a front page story.
“But if we talk about why the middle class is disappearing and almost all new wealth is going to the top 1 percent, not a big story,” he added. “So what the political revolution is, is forcing a debate. Not about trivial, but the real issues.”

If you like mowing the lawn, mow the lawn. If the grass gets long, mow the lawn.
But if you’re exhausted and pushing yourself too hard … maybe the lawn can wait.
Last summer I became a babysitter momentarily and found myself watching these two rug rats, Sid and Rose.
They reminded me that everything in life is a circle. And to remember the duality.
Adults teach kids. But kids also teach adults! Pay attention everybody.
Dear Gov. Kate Brown.
My girlfriend works in an elementary school, and I have many friends with children in Portland public schools and elsewhere.
I want to thank you for signing the gun background check bill last spring.
I also am pleased of the job you have been doing so far as Governor but I must admit, I am disappointed today to read in The Washington Times, that you said now is not the time to talk gun control.
While I understand conflict makes grief more messy, it is hard to continue to see politicians put re-election in front of doing what’s right.
I also want to note that I understand the guns used in the recent college shooting were purchased legally.
Still, I believe there are positive steps that we can take immediately to help reduce school shootings going forward.
As President Obama said, “We’re going to have to come together and take meaningful action to prevent more tragedies like this, regardless of politics.”
Can we start to teach mindfulness and compassion in our public schools?
Can we work to establish a culture of gun safety in Oregon?
If one needs to take a driver’s test to be able to drive a car, why not a gun safety test? Gun owners would be required to regularly refresh their training and renew their permits, with requirements at least as stringent as those governing renewal of your driver’s license.
Can we have more sensible gun laws? Banning high capacity magazines and assault weapons which aren’t needed in hunting.
We need to recognize gun violence as a critical and preventable public health problem.
Most of all, we need to not put off this conversation any longer, and start to take action.
While I know change doesn’t happen over night, with 45 school shootings this year alone in the nation, there should be no delay.
Please be bold.
Don’t be afraid.
Let’s begin to heal from all this senseless tragedy.
And if nationally, a Tea Party Congress (and a few Democrats) continue to put the profits of the NRA higher on its priority list than the safety of innocent people it is sworn in to represent, why can’t we do something here in this state?
Let’s get to work,
