129. Well, for doing any type of critical analysis, it's required. Not doing it is a dodge.

.


I would have no problems contacting either camp, my daughter meets with both sides and has met both candidates.

As a poli-sci continuing ed student, in my 50's, you need to reach out to the parties to effectively research them.


Whatever they tell you could easily lead you to verify or invalidate their information.

And, if it's wrong, slam them for it.


But apprehensiveness, fear, mistrust, or whatever is not a good reason not to reach out.

149. This is silly

There are many times as a mayor that he would actually go door to door or just walk the streets and actually get feedback and help those in need.

This would be like if I created a post, "Can you name any time that Hillary hasn't pandered to whoever she is talking to at the moment."

REASON FOR ALERT

This post is disruptive, hurtful, rude, insensitive, over-the-top, or otherwise inappropriate.

ALERTER'S COMMENTS

This member is stalking wilt the stilt by posting an earlier hide of his.

You served on a randomly-selected Jury of DU members which reviewed this post. The review was completed at Fri Apr 8, 2016, 10:01 PM, and the Jury voted 3-4 to LEAVE IT.

Juror #1 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: No explanation given
Juror #2 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: Sorry, wilt got two antisemitic posts hidden. That's the truth. It's understandable why some people would like to conceal the issue of antisemitism among Hillary's fans at DU, but I won't be a party to protecting bigoted behavior.
Juror #3 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: No explanation given
Juror #4 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: No explanation given
Juror #5 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: Transparency page pissing contest. I'm tired of this bickering.
Juror #6 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: I think the poster is misleading with the selected quote, making it into flamebait. An opinion can be stated without digging up previous posts trying to discredit someone.
Juror #7 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: Nonsense...that is not stalking and is well within their rights to point it out.

8. I will assume you are sincere.

 

Start here http://www.macleans.ca/politics/washington/where-sanders-was-king-heading-to-the-heart-of-bernie-land/ with a discussion about his four 2-year terms as Mayor of Burlington (which is when he started being really effective).

It's always best to start the education process slowly. After that we can go into his efforts in the legislature on behalf of the poor and middle class, and efforts on behalf of labor.

39. He was an Activist Social Justice Mayor - go read the link I gave you.

 

He championed housing issues for low income, parks and waterfront for the community instead of a condominium development and worked to not only pass laws, but make sure they actually benefitted the people of his town.

He put his shoulder to the wheel, and actually walked his "rising tide lifts all boats" talk.

You do know that "volunteering in a soup kitchen" is just ONE EXAMPLE of how people involve themselves in helping others, right? Usually because it is low effort/not a full time job.

He made helping others his FULL TIME job, and did it successfully.

Go read. Good luck.

160. Next, are you going to ask for any evidence that he has walked on water?

Why are you asking for proof of something he has never claimed to have done? (If you think he has claimed it, post the quote, and let's see exactly what it is he was talking about.)

If you're looking for proof of his concern about poverty and issues affecting the poor, and things he has done to try to address those things, there is obviously tons of that.

If your big concern is poverty, and you think there is some other candidate who has done more, then by all means, vote for that candidate.

18. Let's see. I think he tutored on Monday, Wed and Fri from 8 AM to 3 but that was only

during the times when he wasn't in the Senate or the House or as Mayor or in college or when he was protesting segregation.

He may have tutored on his lunch hour when he was making films for the American People's Historical Society

Well he was a Head Start teacher. Perhaps he tutored then.

But he was also working as a carpenter. That was probably when he got his hands dirty.

Because I kind of think being a Head Start teacher might be working in and for the community. But then I also think being Mayor of a city is working FOR the community. But no-he wasn't a community organizer like Obama if that's your point.

119. Actually, many Senators and Congresspersons DO tutor children

The Senate and House participate in some excellent tutoring programs, such as Everybody Wins! and Horton's Kids, where Senators and House Members read with DC's inner-city children once a week. It's real and not for show.

Senator Ted Kennedy used to go to a school once a week to read with his reading buddy, Jasmine. Whenever he couldn't get away from the Capitol because of a vote or hearing, Jasmine went to his office in the Capitol and he read with her there.

Even after Jasmine outgrew the program, Senator Kennedy continue to tutor and mentor her. Jasmine went on to college and graduated from VCU in 2012.

Senator Sanders never participated in any of the Senate or House tutoring programs.

41. There actually is an African American community. Burlington is a refugee resettlement center.

You can see people from either Brundi or Somalia, in traditional dress in the North End of Burlington. There are many children who graduate from Burlington High who were born in places like Brundi, Somalia, Vietnam, Bosnia and other countries. By the way, this started in the late 80s - the time when Bernie was mayor.

Obviously Burlington is not anywhere near the size of Chicago or NYC. However, the question was not what he did for African Americans , but when did he do anything for people in need.

1) There ARE white people who are in desperate need in parts of this country.

2) He was mayor of Burlington -- and it was his job to make Burlington better.

The strange thing is, I don't remember Sanders ever claiming he worked in a soup kitchen. Though considering everything else we know about him, I would not be surprised if he had. He wouldn't necessarily make it a campaign point. It's not like he needs to pad his resume, or needs to establish more street cred regarding his concern for the poor...

88. Yes. Coincidentally we have hundreds of photos, clippings, anecdotes describing Bernie's works.

 

Included are documentation of most of his efforts and activities in Chicago, DC, New York City, the Deep South, and in other nations as well as in Vermont.

The pictures are largely from private collections, Bernie's not a publicity hound and we have a lot of first hand narratives from people who stood and worked by his side.

It's remarkable, actually.

To "point out to you all the times" is a ridiculously tall request. We'll be putting out the entire life story soon.

But if I look for any of the articles online, I usually find nothing and only find references to those magazines as an index or sometimes as part of a used magazine collection.

But mostly nothing comes up in a Google search.

A Google search will mostly get you news from the last 20 years or fewer.

113. is there a specific way of helping the underprivileged that you were looking for?

soup kitchen, shelter volunteer, etc?

Does advocacy count because if yes, that should be readily apparent.

154. We know Hillary went into migrant camps to try to get their children in school, she went to south

Texas to register voters, she worked hard to get CHIP passed which provided health insurance to children, she worked to increase education to poor children in Arkansas, there are more and let's not for get the Clinton Foundation who helps worldwide.

I know all of this without using Google.

122. Worked WITH vs. work FOR. are you kidding me?

 

You people want to really split hairs. I smell acute desperation here.

What is the difference?

You would prefer that he work at a soup kitchen or a homeless shelter or a social service agency?

Bernie Sanders working in the government with a lifetime record of fighting for the rights of the poor, underprivileged, women and victims of crimes, veterans........ Isn't good enough? His legislation and Amendments have helped "groups" of people.

When you work FOR someone you are their "servant" you are in "service" to them.

150. Honestly I saw them 50 times

 

including woodstock, Stonybrook in 1969 15th anniversary in Boulder, 20th anniversary at the greek. I was at Red Rocks for 7-8-78 when they did the Werewolve's of london for final encore. in the top 5 shows of all time. first encore terrapin station/one more saturday's night.

I actually think they would approve of this string. The hero worship of Bernie is sickening. if there was ever a band who would not be for this it was them.

162. Somewhere, a sad bridge sits all alone, missing its troll...

here's one thing Bernie did to help the poor...

HE PAID HIS FUCKING TAXES.

Unlike some who concocted an elaborate tax-evading slush fund to the tune of a few hundred million dollars. Spin all you want, the bottom line is the primary charity served by the CGI is the Clinton family and their closest political allies. All done tax-free, because why pay taxes and help out other Americans, some of whom probably aren't even going to vote for you?

If there were any justice in this world, the whole lot of them would go spend the remainder of their privileged lives rubbing shoulders with the victims of their mass incarceration project. Yes, THEIR mass incarceration project. I'll be goddamed if I'm about to sit here and be lectured by the supporters of a candidate who is a wholly owned subsidiary of Goldman Sachs, and whose husband oversaw the greatest expansion of needless incarceration in American history.

Tell her to pay her taxes and set free the millions her husband enslaved in the penal system.

Then you can make bullshit strawman arguments about Bernie's imaginary lack of compassion for the very people your hero has screwed over for nearly 40 years (and yes, I'll count the victims of the Arkansas death penalty in my scorecard of actual crimes against the poor).

Go sell crazy someplace else...

are a strange combination of pathetic and hilarious.

It's actually hard to believe they take their own posts seriously. Maybe they're only pretending to support her to make her fans look ridiculous?

178. The word underprivileged is at best a euphemism

But it is also a signifier and a rather horrid one it is actually one of those codes that frame the basis of your argument and the picture is not a pretty one.
