So, Bernie spoke at an event sponsored by banks


My, my.


What was the purpose of the event? (What was the name of the event?)

And was Bernie paid to speak?

That article certainly is lacking in details.

ETA - I A BERNIE SUPPORTER WHO POSTED THESE QUESTIONS BECAUSE OF AN ATTEMPTED SMEAR BY THE OTHER SIDE. Obviously, details were left out in an attempt to smear Bernie. (Check my posting history.)

Why my mother and I are voting for Bernie

My children. My grandchildren.

Her grandchildren. Her great grandchildren.

My kids don't have multi-million dollar trust funds and don't get cushy jobs because of my last name. None of my kids are married to rich investment bankers. My kids are not part of the one percent.

My kids can't wait another 8 years of going backwards so we can elect our country's first woman president.

My mother and I fundamentally do not agree with Hillary's politics, and do not believe they will advance what is important to her and me, my children and her grandchildren's future.

If putting my children and grandchildren's future ahead of electing the first woman president means I'm not a feminist, then so be it.

You can call me a humanist.

Better still, call me a mother, instead. It is the title I wear most proudly, anyway.

So, Hillary DUers are leaving to find "real democratic values?"


What in the hell are "real democratic values?"

As far as I'm concerned, Hillary's campaign is about establishment politics and getting the first woman elected.

I just can't go there. Sorry.

Other than women's rights (which are very important), I just don't trust Hillary to nominate judges that would overturn Citizen's United or that she will do anything to help the 99%.

Bernie spokespersons need to push super delegate issue every time they speak, imo!

The count is being shoved down tv viewers' throats to discourage Bernie voters. Sometimes, the delegate count (including super delegates) is put on the screen, and super delegates are never even mentioned.

They know if Bernie wins the pledged delegates, there will be a revolution if super delegates put Hillary over the top.

Here's some video of the arrest of the Princeton Professor


Professor Perry was pulled over for going 67 mph in a 45 mph speed zone. Not all states require arrests for outstanding parking tickets, although I'm not sure about driving with a suspended license.

1st World Problem - No Clydesdale Commercial?

We caught a glimpse of them in one commercial. Was that it?
