Bernie's biggest crime

He messed with the Overton Window.

The Overton window is an approach to identifying which ideas define the domain of acceptability within a democracy's possible governmental policies. Proponents of policies outside the window seek to persuade or educate the public in order to move and/or expand the window. Proponents of current policies, or similar ones, within the window seek to convince people that policies outside it should be deemed unacceptable.

What Americans think are fantasy and unicorns, is reality outside their own little bubble.

They are called NATO and Western Europe.

What I find hilarious is how Hillary first parrots Bernie, and then she says he's too radical.

The only thing that makes your window possible is the money pouring in to the powers who convinece the terminaly gullible that universal healthcare and a living wage is impossible are the same people who turn their blind eye to the welfare queens of Wall Street, Pentagon, Big Pharma and the oil industry.

2. So true. Caught up with an old friend who lived in France for many years and she's stunned

at the level of doubt/mistrust of the concept of expanding benefits.
