Poor is a state of mind.




No poor is a state of hungry.



That's very materialistic.

You don't need a pot to piss in to be rich.

Besides, with all the social programs and food banks and charities, starving to death in the USA is pretty rare.

Uh oh... looks like Reality crashes the party yet again!

US Census "Poverty Rates by Race" shows there are more WHITE people in poverty than ALL OTHER RACES combined in the United States

Why is Bernie pandering to minorities a bad thing, when Trump panders to white vote.

He uses their fears about brown people to grab a hold of that vote. Build a wall to keep Mexicans out, stop all Muslims from entering country...etc.

Do not tell me the wall is to stop all colors of immigrants out when it was Mexicans he specifically targeted.



He never said keep mexicans or muslims out. The wall is to keep illegal immigrants, drugs, and whoever else decides to cross the border illegally out. The mainstream media and the establishment will say and do anything to get Trump out. If the story is to be believed El Chapo came across the border at least twice.

Remember now.

The only place in this country that isn't open borders is the White House.

Thank you for a little bit of reason.

Glad someone else knows how to understand the English language.

Too many people speak fluent hearsay.

Wrong. Torture has NOT been legal for decades. It took a lot of legal gymnastics for the Bush admin to make waterboarding legal. We're talking about thunderous applause at the mention of expanding torture and murdering innocent families. We all know how horrible war is, and innocent lives are lost--- BUT to actually call for the intentional murder of innocents and receive applause. It's pretty evil. Or ignorant. Or both.

Don't down play it.



Where did he ever say "murder families" or innocents?

He will change the ROE for the military, that is legal.

Poverty knows no skin tone...At least last I checked.
Bernie dropped the ball man.

Probably because there are more white people in America? There's a reason people of another ethnicity are sometimes called "minorities"....

You take a subsection of a minority group, you're going to get small numbers. You take a subsection of the majority and you are going to have larger numbers. It's not rocket science.

I understand what he's trying to say, and I agree with that underlying premise. However I would have chosen a more nuanced characterization of the dynamic he's seeking to describe. I would have preferred he spoke about intersectionality and false equivalency, while still acknowledging that poverty can affect anyone. Rather than creating a sound byte.

Peace.

You're going to have to search youtube for Trump discussing killing families of terrorists. It's been brought up any times. It's not legal-- and if he somehow made it legal it would be horrible. Imagine our soldiers being ordered to break down the doors of innocent families of terrorists and executing them. Men women and children. That's a horrible dishonor to put on the soldiers. It's just a horrible dumb idea and it's a war crime.

Dropped the ball, man?

How about he proved himself to be what all politicians are: slimy little bastards.

All of them. Every single one. Even Bernie Sanders. Even Ron Paul.

Every. Single. One. It's never going to change. Do not put your future in the hands of your government.

I'll admit that Sanders remark isn't exactly correct or accurate as we all know poor doesn't care about the color of your skin. There are also plenty of white people in the ghetto as well. Although collectively it's not the norm. The reasons for that is up for debate as are the numbers. I don't really care to discuss that mountain of crap either.

But let's get real. Saying that this is the most offensive or racist thing to come from any candidate so far is laughable. Trump holds the record for saying offensive, ignorant, racist and just plain false sh*t. He prides himself on it even. So all this crybaby BS over what Sanders said is nothing more than a desperate attempt to rail against him. Which I agree he should have worded that statement a bit different as it is just a too broad in it's scope. But with all the drama that's being expressed here by so many you'd have thought he pulled a puppy out of his pocket and ate it in front of everyone.

Get a damn grip people. If you don't have any White Guilt then WTF are you so offended for. My god, put your big boy pants on and focus please. You know what is worse than a slightly incorrect quote about racism??? All the drama and woes coming from the masses who got offended by it and try and make it into something more than it is. Good god you all sound like a bunch of babies who dropped your ice cream cone in the dirt. You need to stop blubbering about the mean old man socialist who cares about minorities and grow a pair.

Oh the horror!

When the dad isn't raping his wife.

When the dad isn't selling his 8 year old daughter off to some old guy.

When sonny boy isn't being indoctrinated in to waging Jihad.

Hey Trump just wants to perform a later term abortion for terrorists, and those that give aid to them.

It's murder and would be a war crime. But says a lot about your moral compass (or lack there of) that you have no real problem with it. No problem with the murder of children by our troops. Says a lot.

Could there be more poor white people because the US is 70% white?

My moral compass is working just fine.

Between THIS.

Drone strikes kill innocents 90% of the time

Compared to Trump Critics.

You condone the murder of children by our troops. Your moral compass is shattered.
