Do you think about what you say or do you just kind of let it all flow?


Seriously, does anybody think America will actually elect this 78 year old Communist?

The Dems want a coronation of another dynastic entity...and I thought you guys fought to rid yourselves of all that hereditary/cronies nonsense?


You open up with the idea that the Democrats would nominate Sanders then follow up saying the Democrats want Clinton. So which is it? Do they all want Clinton or do they all want Sanders?


What with the Bush and Clinton mobs you've had a virtual monopoly by a select few for decades.
And this is the nation that lectures others on democracy?
Believe it, Clinton, Sanders and their base are the extremists in this election, not Trump.


Oh, I see...Bush was a liberal...or something. You can't claim him and his failures so he's obviously a closeted Democrat. His neo-conservative cabinet were all a bunch of hippy communists too. No 'true' conservative would have had an administration like that.

You wrap it up with the idea that only leftist ideas are extreme, right-wing extremism isn't real. It's mainstream and reasonable. Carpet bombing civilians is an acceptable form of warfare. Deporting anyone who has an accent is an acceptable form of job creation. Yeah...I got it, Trump's the only normal one. Everybody else is crazy.

You can always tell who the real schmucks are at the top, they only come out when offended by the truth about them.

Otherwise, 'business' as usual.

It's laughable...the whole Democratic side and their candidates are laughable.
Anyone see the Democrats "debates" recently?
LOL😭😭😭😭
They would put Communist China to shame with media bias, soft questions, fawning journalists, stage managed dissent and all the back slapping…it was genuinely embarrassing to see a superpower, a supposed first world democracy, air the farcical "debates" we've seen.

Its easy to have that perspective if not living in the US. The conditioning here by the constant stream of media bs isn't all televised overseas, just the high points like the debates. If you only watch those its easy to see the bs. If you watch all the campaign and news about candidates, you'll get mind melded into acceptance, too.

Even though I live here, I don't watch any of it, agree with your position entirely. What a circus of smoke and mirrors, dogs and ponies.

His comment sounded like a veiled threat to me.

I don't know why he bothered to comment, Bernie isn't a threat because Bernie doesn't have a snow balls chance in hell of getting the Democratic nomination. Hillary is by far the favored establishment, big bank candidate. The Bill and Hillary Clinton fund is full of wall street donors. half of Obama's Cabinet is former Goldman Sachs employees.

No GOP establishment candidate will be able to beat Hillary, she has the female vote already, the only way to take down this witch is somebody from left field.

Love it or hate it, Trump IS the shock jock guy. Is definitely not establishment what-so-ever, Both Democrats and Republicans HATE HIM. He says what ever the hell he wants, and doesn't even care what you think, how is this not a breath of fresh air?

He is the only savior we have against the pure evil that is Hillary Clinton.

That fact that she isn't in jail yet for Benghazi and the Emails tells you she is the chosen one.

The "chosen one" is having polling troubles:

Poll: Sanders nearly tied with Clinton nationwide

Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders has dramatically cut into the nationwide lead of primary rival Hillary Clinton, according to a new Quinnipiac University poll.

The poll released Friday finds Clinton leading the race with 44 percent support, compared to 42 percent support for Sanders, within the survey's margin of error.

The last iteration of the poll in December had Clinton leading Sanders nationwide 61–30.

“Democrats nationwide are feeling the Bern as Sen. Bernie Sanders closes a 31-point gap to tie Secretary Hillary Clinton,” said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.

Bernie Sanders reminds me of the old guy who runs for the condo board by telling you how corrupt the old board is, and the minute he gets in he is a hundred times worse. Sorry but I just don't trust this guy. He is just using populist angst to try to get elected, but his pie in the sky idealism will wreck the country. Where are we going to get the money to socialize this country when we are 25 TRILLION dollars in debt and the average person works paycheck to paycheck and can't possibly absorb the tax increases it will take to do what he wants to do? And taxing the rich WON'T work, they are only 1 percent of the population, you can tax them to death and it won't generate a fraction of the revenue needed to make the US a socialist paradise. And even if he does get elected, all we will achieve is years of gridlock when the corporate owned senate and congress opposes everything he wants to achieve.

Lots opinion with a single dollar figure that's fatally flawed.

A post full of opinions has more dreams than a pipe full of opium, but no where near as valuable!

Edit:



If you ever want to get rid of corporate rule, you need something that's going to be effective. This guy's agenda is NOT it. He will just create total gridlock and this country cant afford 8 more years of lame duck politics. If you want to end corporatism, its going to start on the local level, then the states, THEN we will have a chance. One old man who has very unrealistic views on the way it should be wont achieve it.

Bankers who do immoral things aren't used to taking any personal responsibility for them. That is how come this guy finds it so surprising that he is individually called out. Maybe it should happen more often.

His criticism is in the right place. Too bad his policies would finish gutting the middle class, destroy small businesses, further empower large corporations through reduction of competition and work to make everyone equally and blissfully poor.

Bernie, he knows whats wrong and a has a solution even worwe than the problem.


Kudos, sir.

Hitler was one old man with millions of supporters. I am not comparing Sanders to Hitler, but I start to get worried when someone capitalizes on public anger to rise to power. Trump is doing it one way and Sanders another. There is no difference.

Poor Sanders in his old age.....Likley due for a "heart attack" or a "stroke" plus old people that age are always getting into fatal traffic "accidents".

It looks like Sanders message is getting heard loud and clear. It also seems that his mention of a few things that one wall street bank has done, has struck a nerve and garnered a response. Lloyd Blankfein CEO of Goldman Sachs is feeling he is being targeted or singled out by Mr Sanders.

This shows that those that have rigged politics are getting scared. Just the fact Sanders wants big money out of politics is enough to scare them. But Mr sanders also is threatening the closure of the revolving doors, between business and DC , toadd a tax on wall street transactions and we can see why Blankfeins heads exploding!

Go Sanders!


The head of Goldman Sachs believes being singled out for criticism by Bernie Sanders represents a “dangerous moment” for the country.

Lloyd Blankfein, the Wall Street giant’s chief executive, said Wednesday that the Democratic presidential candidate might have gone too far in personally targeting him.

“To personalize it, it has potential to be a dangerous moment. Not just for Wall Street ... but for anybody who is a little bit out of line,” he said in an interview with CNBC.

Sanders has railed against Wall Street throughout his populist campaign, accusing the financial industry of ruining the economy and holding down the middle class. And he has singled out Blankfein and his company as a poster child for the greed and recklessness he says is endemic in finance.

In a January interview with Bloomberg, he specifically mentioned Blankfein as representing greed on Wall Street, for taking massive pay packages “after destroying the economy.”

Oh those poor bankers, can't handle a little bit of criticism over their buying of politicians and extreme greed..

Sanders is just a socialist who wants to sack capitalism. Wall Street is the quintessential mechanism of capitalist finance and so Sanders is attacking that. It's the whole Occupy Wall Street baloney. Never mind that socialists still use the capitalist system to attain their goals but don't tell their supporters they are secretly using the same mechanism which they say they hate so much. Same with Soros the billionaire socialist who rigged the game in the 08 downfall and wrecked the currency of entire countries with speculation he made billions off of.

So it would be terrible if:

Wall street pays small transaction tax?

Would it be bad for corporate elite not to bribe lobby our politicians?

would it be bad to stop the private sector to DC revolving doors?

Have you seen Sanders total worth? No big stock portfolio there!

Funny; you write a post about Sen Sanders, yet the only thing close to a fact, is about Soros, everything else in just mere opinion.

It looks like you no longer support Sanders for the Dems; is that because you support HRC, or are you now strictly a Trump supporter?

Edit: sarcasm?

Child porn, too real of a possibility, ouch!

I find it hard to believe there is any true notion of what socialism is in a country that has one of the highest gaps between the lowest and highest incomes.
It shouldnt matter if you think the poor are lazy or the rich are greedy, we are all people.
Socialism is hard work for little reward. Wether it's the hard work or the little reward, overall it's very unappealing I'm sure. But that's what it is.
