    They Cracked This 250-Year-Old Code, and Found a Secret Society Inside:

    At the peak of their power, these clandestine organizations, most notably the Freemasons, had hundreds of thousands of adherents, from colonial New York to imperial St. Petersburg. Dismissed today as fodder for conspiracy theorists and History Channel specials, they once served an important purpose: Their lodges were safe houses where freethinkers could explore everything from the laws of physics to the rights of man to the nature of God, all hidden from the oppressive, authoritarian eyes of church and state.

    Strangely stated. Freemason were free to hold any views about God or an equivalent ultimate Creator, but were not free to question His existence. The Masons did not allow atheists to join.

    This idiotic notion that Clinton is doomed because she only beat Lazlo 55-43 is just the latest iteration of Sanderista wishful thinking. Insular pretend radicals who only know Massachusetts try to project their own preconceptions onto the western neighbor, only to fail repeatedly because New York is an altogether different beast. Governor Cuomo, anyone? Moynihan beat Buckley 55-44 in his first Senate race, do you dismiss him also as a loser goofball?

    Sanders is going to lose. Sanders is going to lose, even though he is a nice old man who fronts for some decent ideas.

    The reason Sanders is going to lose, even though he is a nice old man who fronts for some decent ideas, is that his most visible supporters are the same gang of pathetic whiners who have done everything they can over the past three decades to alienate the 2/3rds of the Democratic Party who are not smug little control freaks.
