I found another "link" today..

Bernie Sanders lambasts 'absolute failure' of Democratic party's strategy

But the Vermont senator said that establishment Democrats were standing in the way of further progress.

There he goes again using that stale word "establishment" when he's been in D.C for how many years?

Against that backdrop, Sanders’s criticism of the Democratic party as out-of-touch and elitist appeared to ring true for activists at the summit, including those who are planning to run for office for the first time in the coming months.

Boy, did the Gigantic Blue Wave that engulfed the Nation prove BS Wrong. There were Dems across the spectrum who ran on Health Care.. they're Not "out of touch" like BS likes to say.

Mahalo! Happy Blue Year to us! ucr!

yeah, you sure use the word "hate" a lot instead of

actually explaining why BS thinks it's ok to always insult the Dem party.

This is from June 2017..

No, the "divisiveness" is coming from BS like

when he was on Face the Nation right after the "election". This was untrue..

I always liked the tweets when

they first started appearing on DU.. I can read them better.. I wanted to join but was too daunted for a long time.

It's like anything.. there's good and bad.. trump uses it for propaganda, but thankfully the reality based can use it to pushback with the Facts.

Finally, in July 2018 I took the plunge, and it's really nice being able to reply to those I respect, and if need be to call someone out.

I only use FB to see what my spread out family is up to in New York, Connecticut, North Carolina, Florida, California, and Oregon!

Isn't that a load of divisive bull.

This time it was on Face the Nation..

That's BS' face talking on CNN with Wolf

They should take it up with BS if they don't like that he was being divisive right after the rigging in of trump..

BS is the messenger..

Also saying..


Bernie Sanders says he will work with Donald Trump

"I think that there needs to be a profound change in the way the Democratic Party does business," Sanders said. "It is not good enough to have a liberal elite. I come from the white working class, and I am deeply humiliated that the Democratic Party cannot talk to where I came from."
