1. I expect this to happen with TPP.

8. And it should have been fixed in any new Trade Bills. Instead it's going to get even worse

with over 6,000 Corps having access to our 'market'.

Everything is for sale, even our politicians.

13. What sort of language would be needed to provide the sort of protection you're seeking?

 

I'm genuinely curious.

12. Wrong answer? It's correct. We may not like it, but it is true.

 

Puke all you like, it doesn't change facts.

3. At this point our whole society is confused and is in the grip of a type of psychosis.

Paradoxes like this are abundant everywhere, even the "non-republican" population. Sometimes I wonder if this is not what happens when empires die. Not just the leadership loose their grasp on wisdom and empathy, but the people themselves become so confused when they lose the dominance and their "exceptional" ideology starts to show it's lack of foundation that they can't find their way to steer clearly towards solutions: Nor can they completely let go of the old delusions (of Grandeur) that came with the hubris.

4. this country does NOT

protect its kids from getting cancer. Cancer rates for children's cancer are rising. This country tolerates known carcinogens to be added to their food, environment including water and air. People think it is more important to have a perfect yard that is maintained with chemicals, than protect neighboring children, or even those in their own households.

5. Frackers and Monsanto are part of the government, write the laws. Anyone who says we're trying

 

to prevent cancer in the children is lying (or in the thrall of some other liar)

11. I think Bernie was probably referring to smoking. But you are right, this government is completely

owned, or almost, by Corporations. They care nothing for people, only profits, see Monsanto fighting as if they were at war, to continue to sell their poison. And to deprive the people of even knowing what they are feeding them.

Unless we do something about the power they now have, things are only going to get worse.

Which is why, to begin that process, I am supporting the only candidate who is not beholden to them.

6. there are so many examples of cognitive dissonance everywhere, on a daily basis,

that it makes my head spin. I can't even begin to go into the hypocrisy and illogical situations that are easily in view to us all.

7. I'd add in the word "supposedly" trying to protect...Go Bernie. Love the hashtag.

 

I don't know where all these go, but hopefully they are taking over Facebook et al. I have an idea he could come up with at least one of these a day. Now that would be some marketing...Bernie's Daily Wisdom Tip...or something... Drip, drip, drip.
