Post subject:  the Bernie Sanders Thread

Sen. Sanders officially announced his campaign in his home state of Vermont.

"The campaign is about the needs of the American people."

He said his campaign is not about Hillary Clinton or Jeb Bush, or smearing his opponents.

Some of the issues he will be campaigning on include: wealth and income inequality, childhood poverty, the disappearing middle class, unemployment, overturning Citizens United, oligarchy vs. democracy, livable wages, rebuilding our crumbling infrastructure, and the science of climate change.

No candidate since Dennis Kucinich has spoken to us directly without using platitudes. He's OUR voice. He acknowledges that the road ahead will not be easy but we all must add our voice to make for a very different America.

"The agenda begins with jobs, jobs, and more jobs." He will fight for fair trade, not "free" trade.

His message for the billionaire class---"you can't have it all...Your greed has got to end if you can't accept your responsibilities."

Interesting article about Sanders early years in Vermont. It also includes a snapshot of a weird paper Sanders wrote--and wrote badly.

Bernie Sanders was unapologetically strong responding to Chuck Todd on 43 Year Old Essay

Quote:
Chuck Todd started the question with his usual condescension for a certain sect of politicians. "This week you found out what it is like to become a nationally recognized candidate for president and potentially a threat to somebody," said Chuck Todd. "A leaking of an essay you in the seventies for an alternative weekly, you campaign described it as satire. I will be honest with you Senator Sanders, it is uncomfortable read." Todd then went on to quote the most 'controversial' snippet from the essay.

Senator Bernie Sanders' answer was perfect. "This is a piece of fiction that I wrote in 1972 I think," Sanders said. "That was 43 years ago. It was very poorly written. And if you read it what it was dealing with, gender stereotypes. Why some men like to oppress women. Why other women like to be submissive. Something like 50 Shades of Grey, very poorly written 43 years ago."

Great compilation. 3 minutes of Bernie saying what America needs to get back on the right track. We must have fair elections, cut military spending, free public college education, raise the minimum wage, and view health care as a human right.

Bernie Slaps the Press Silly

Quote:
Clinton has yet to put herself in the situation that Sanders eagerly embraced Thursday morning, as he engaged in a frank give-and-take with reporters over breakfast. He delivered some lines it would be hard to imagine Clinton ever uttering — not because they reflected his socialist outlook, but because they were so blunt.
“Campaigns are not baseball games,” Sanders scolded. “What did I read in the paper today? Gov. Bush is getting a new campaign manager. You know who cares about that? About eight people in the world. Nobody cares about that.”

Good for Bernie! Image

Since they made the corporate news a 'money maker', it's went downhill from there. Now it's bread and circuses instead of real journalism. Gone are the days of Walter Cronkite.

Bluntness doesn't hurt. I found his comment about the eight people in the world interesting. I read about Bush hiring a campaign manager as well, probably the same day. But the article was too darned vague about it. I spent an hour looking up more information about his new campaign manager.

What I want to know is who are the other seven people?

You ain't kidding! Love Love Love it! :) Watching the beginning of Ed's show tonight almost brought me to tears. Finally someone is speaking our language. Wouldn't it be something (a miracle perhaps) if Bernie is today's Barack and ends up kicking Clinton to the curb again?

Ed has a guest who is a Clinton supporter. Ed got him to admit that Clinton really does support the TPP when her supporter said she wouldn't support it without the TAA provision. IN other words, she's okay with it when people lose their jobs because of it and have to go back to school. :roll:

:arrow: This morning on MSNBC Republican hack Mark Halperin pontificated how "Democratic activists" told him that they support Bernie Sanders but are voting for Hillary because "she knows more about foreign policy". I find that comment bogus to say the least. Many of the people that I speak too and some of them who consider themselves "Democratic or progressive activists" have never voiced that. They say this election is going to be a domestic populist election and foreign policy is pretty low on the scale. Bernie Sanders says what he means not what he thinks people want to hear, he tells it like it is. he is attracting huge crowds moreseo even than Barack Obama did this early on in the presidential election cycle.

They had Sen. McCaskill on too and she said Sanders was too liberal to be the nominee. She said he was too liberal on trade and health care. :roll:

Show me a crazy republican that's even come close to that. Even Trump had to hire his audience.

Bernie talked about his agenda on Seth Myers show. He didn't run away from Democratic socialism and said billionaires have got to start paying their fair share of taxes. He was asked about the term "redistribution of wealth" and how it could negatively impact his campaign. His response was golden.

:arrow: Claire McCaskill is one of those "Wall Street corporate Dems" who think more about the lobbyists than the people they actually are supposed to represent. I find her comments not only distasteful but very hypocritical because back in 2007-08 she defended Barack Obama, (whom she supported at the time) for the very same things she is condemning Bernie for. Obama was considered "way too liberal" by some then as well, as I recall.

Sanders is where the party should be. We need to bring back the party of FDR. Corporate interests are slowly dissolving the New Deal and replacing it with shitty free trade deals, outsourcing, the robbing of pensions, and tax havens.

Got some email about an FEC deadline on Tuesday, so chipped in $10 more. No matter whether he wins or loses, he's the most important person in this campaign, to me anyways. Everything his campaign is about needs to be on the agenda.
