To test Bernie's theory of "How to deal with an obstructionist Congress", let's see how many

show up on the steps of Capital Hill the week after next to support the Obama Nuclear Agreement and stand up against Ted Cruz, Donald Trump and their supporters. It should even be a warm day. These are the people who want to see another war in the Middle East. I don't see the Dems calling for their people to show up in force and face down Trump who like so many other members of the GOP chose to evade the Vietnam War through bogus deferments, and then want to call John Kerry, who did, names.

I don't believe Trump went to the Wharton School of Business. I want to see his transcripts.

The man cannot complete a sentence. He cannot finish a complete thought. He changes direction in the middle of his own argument without having been interrupted. According to Trump, you have to be really, really smart to get into the Wharton School of Business. I don't think Trump is very, very smart. I want to see his transcripts. I want to see what kind of grades he got.

What are YOU angry about?

If I hear one more political reporter say that the Trump supporters are “angry” I’m going to puke. Now Chris Matthews, of Hardball has started saying it, as does Chuck Todd, and every Liberal and Republican Contributor on Morning Joe. On his program the other day, Chris Mathews says that "I get it. These people are angry. They’re not just a bunch of crazies."

My question to Chris is “What the hell are they angry about?” Big businesses and billionnaires are the ones that sent their jobs overseas. Big business is the ones who brought in cheap Mexican labor when blacks moved to the cities to take low paying jobs as janitors and dishwashers rather than continue the back breaking work of hours spent laboring in the fields of California farms. Then when those uppity blacks had the nerve to demand better wages in the city factories, hotel kitchens, and sweatshops, they brought in Mexican workers to displace blacks in those janitorial positions and kitchen help.

No one was angry then. When Big Business made Steel workers disassemble the plant and equipment needed to make steel and box it up and ship it overseas, and even train their replacement workers, I don’t remember white people in masses getting angry. Or when Big business brought in Indian workers to this country on B1 and B2 Visitor Visas to displace Computer Programmers , and Nurses, and Mitt Romney and his ilk bought up businesses and shipped jobs overseas to Chinese workers and replaced American textile and factory workers, clothing manufacturers and furniture makers, I think the ‘angry folks’ were MIA. As they were when the big Homebuilders began bringing in Mexican workers to pour concrete, lay tile, and hang drywall. These were powerful Big Businessmen, like Trump, who all you "Angry" people NOW, bow down to and aspire to be like. Now it's all Bill Clinton's fault that he signed NAFTA, something that I'm sure every Big Businessman in American supported. So now, once again, the liberal media has decided that white people are angry and they have a right to be because they want their country to be Great again, and it's all the Mexican's fault. My question is, ”What are YOU angry about?”

I’ll go first.

I’m angry that the minority leadership of both Houses of Congress, on the eve of the Inauguration of the first black president of the United States in 2009, met in a hotel restaurant in the nation’s capital to plot and collude the demise and further deterioration of our nation's economy, lead by the collapse of our financial institutions, as a political strategy for returning to majority leadership, by doing anything and any means necessary to insure the failure of this President and his Administration, and with the full support and cooperation of those people who NOW claim to be ANGRY, once those deeds were publicly exposed, and they were never made to pay a price for their treasonous actions.
