If Senator Sanders wants more coverage by the network news,

He should call all millionaires rapists and murderers.

Call for the tracking and surveillance of billionaire hedge fund managers who make all their money off of carried interest and pay 15 % income tax rate.

Call for the expulsion from the US of CEOs of corporations who pretend to be foreign companies to avoid paying taxes in the US.

Accuse climate change deniers of killing babies and selling the parts.

As Jon Stewart learned from Colbert on The Late Show, if you want to get the media to notice your message, you've got to TRUMP IT UP!

Start calling for the poor to rise up and fight for their rights, see how quickly he gets coverage.

2. He will also sink in polls further

 

He just doesn't have the "salesman" persona and "man in charge" attitude of Trump.

Bernie comes across as a junior executive at a building permit department who makes sure your plans met Title 24 requirements or a water department guy who is constantly railing about the need to conserve water.

Two completely different profiles.

5. So you are favorable to Trump, impressed by that posturing he does? Wow.

 

Personally as a Democrat I see all the coverage for Trump, Cruz, Carson, Rubio and then a blip about Clinton and nothing about O'Malley nor Sanders as a bad thing. It's all of their candidates in depth, one of ours in passing. How is that a good thing for Democrats?

6. I think Hillary will do just fine against Trump in the general if he ever manages to get that far.

The point is that, Sander's completely pales in comparison to Trump as a candidate.

It's a good thing Bernie and Donny will never have to run against each other in anything other than a Time Magazine click poll.

10. If you've ever seen Cone talk about Muslims before, it shouldn't be a surprise

9. Yeah, that's what we need a Salesman. Seems we've had a couple of those who sold us out.

 

Trump isn't in charge of his own mouth, let along a country. And, newsflash, you don't run a country like a spoiled rich, pouty, vindictive, bloviating "under the tail" idiot.

Meanwhile, back at the Ranch, Bernie is saying the same things, touting the same principles, working for ALL of the people to keep help get us out of our downward charge to oligarchy.

Posting it again...

Oligarchy (from Greek ὀλιγαρχία (oligarkhía); from ὀλίγος (olígos), meaning "few", and ἄρχω (arkho), meaning "to rule or to command"[1][2][3] is a form of power structure in which power effectively rests with a small number of people. These people might be distinguished by royalty, wealth, family ties, education, corporate, religious or military control. Such states are often controlled by a few prominent families who typically pass their influence from one generation to the next, but inheritance is not a necessary condition for the application of this term.

Throughout history, oligarchies have often been tyrannical, relying on public obedience or oppression to exist. Aristotle pioneered the use of the term as a synonym for rule by the rich,[4] for which another term commonly used today is plutocracy.
