Exactly. They do tend to start crying when things don't go their way

But keep in mind China is beginning to get desperate for new resources since they are running out of their own resources. In other words, China is in trouble. They only have about 30% of their farmland usable for farming. Yes, only about 30%. Maybe 40. The rest of it is poisoned and not usable because of toxic dumping. When I left there in 2012, the s*** was just beginning to hit the fan economically and environmentally. But their environment was already in trouble long before I left.

For more insight, go to readersupportednews.org and search for "China's Environmental Apocalypse" and download the article. It's 40 pages, but worth it.

Could be.

And that level of excitement for her has to be at all time low and sinking daily. And yes Bernie should win both Iowa and NH. I hope he can go 3-0 in SC. That would put him in the position he wants to be in: winning the nomination. I hope SC volunteers can send us something as to how things are going there. Saw Hillary town hall pic yesterday posted here. Not many people in attendance. So perhaps her campaign is fizzling. We will see soon.

If the excitement level for Bernie increases after NH, he will win it all. And thats because I'm an optimist.

I love your first sentence: NY Times is sticking a fork in Hillary and Bills

electability argument. Wow. Awsome that they did. Maybe someone at the NY Times figured it was time they start eating their vegies.

Silly me for being so neive that Barney Frank would...

...get cozy with one of the corporate favorites. Thought he had more instincts to fight for little guy. Obi Wan was wrong about Anakin, I was wrong about Frank.

I believe Jeff Weaver (his campaign Manager) knows what he is doing.

And that's a good thing. Wanted to try to get in touch with Hartmann to ask him about Bernie's staff since he knows best.

But it is refreshing to see Bernie say he is in this to win it. That is encouraging to me. Thanks for posting this Attorney. This story reinforces what many of us have said from the beginning: people are not interested in Hillary because she offers nothing. Bernie excites people and will significantly motivate the dem. base.

If this hold true that voters really do not like Hillary, many of them-including "R's"-will support Bernie. Many "R's" already are. Also nice to see Wa-Po do a story on Bernie.

As one poster here clearly states, "I will not vote the lesser of 2 corporate evils." Amen to that.

Another reason to support Bernie

His intention to fix the horrible voting system all across the country. Everybody votes and an end to discrimination in voting. End of discussion. When you turn 18, bingo. You can vote. Automatically.

None of us are voting for Bernie not because he talks about "socialistic" ideas...

We're voting for Bernie based on his vision for the "next generation". And whats important to the next generation?

Well first there's the environment and climate change.

Then there's the necessity to create millions of manufacturing jobs here--in this country.

And we can't forget the need to improve the educational opportunities for those who haven't had that chance.

But wait! There's more!

This is not a gunfight

It is more a war of words than anything else. And the Hillary supporters are throwing any emotional, non-sequitur they can find.

Many of us supporting Bernie think of him in this manner:

She won't stand up for anybody. That's why I'm not voting for her.

Let me just make this point.

Mark mentioned that Bernie is going to need to expand/maintain boots on the ground in Iowa and New Hampshire. I'm not sure what he means by that. I'm sure many people are working their tails off to contact voters in both states.

However, let me remind you that he had boots on the ground before he made the announcement he was running.

And you may ask, how were there boots on the ground before he announced?

Hint: Another candidate we were hoping would run. If you guessed Senator Warren, you are correct. The people from "Run Warren Run" were already in Iowa and NH. All those people had to do was simply shift gears. I think Bernie was very lucky to have this infrastructure in place before the announcement.

That is what you call one hell of a head start.

Tom Hartmann said this very thing last week.


"How Reaganomics killed the middle Class" This is also an interview with noted economics Professor Richard Wolf. I don't know why no one mentioned Dwight Eisenhower. I thought he pushed/supported "social" programs for the middle class too. At least I seem to remember something like from my education in history.

How tragic it is that this country bought a box of rocks when they put an actor in the White House. Horribly depressing.
