60 Minutes is running a segment on how the prices of GENERIC drugs are manipulated

Interesting they focus on generics.

I pay $10/month for my single generic (w/ insurance).

New Monmouth poll - only 10% of Americans have a positive view of socialism

A majority of Americans say socialism is incompatible with American values, and only 10 percent of voters in a new poll have a positive view of socialism.

A Monmouth University Poll survey released Monday found that 57 percent of voters believe that socialism is incompatible with American values, compared to 29 percent who said it is compatible.

With a GOP POTUS there aren't as many gold, seed, and Doomsday bunker/shelter ads on TV.

Because the Glenn Beck idiots all thought we would descend into a lawless Mad Max society with Obama as President.

Those were happy days.

Trump warns Sanders he is being cheated again

The Democratic Party is again trying to manipulate its presidential primary elections, President Donald Trump suggested in a two-part tweet on Saturday night.

“The Democratic National Committee, sometimes referred to as the DNC, is again working its magic in its quest to destroy Crazy Bernie Sanders....,” the president began, following those remarks with: “....for the more traditional, but not very bright, Sleepy Joe Biden. Here we go again Bernie, but this time please show a little more anger and indignation when you get screwed!“

Sanders, whom Trump frequently refers to as “Crazy Bernie,” doesn’t usually get Trump‘s sympathy or support, except when the president is implying that Democrats are doing inappropriate things to keep him away from the party’s presidential nomination. It was a common refrain by Trump both during and after Sanders’ battle with Hillary Clinton. “Bernie Sanders supporters have every right to be apoplectic of the complete theft of the Dem primary by Crooked Hillary!,” he tweeted in November 2017.

The Amazingly True Story of Jeshua Cottontail (The Easter Rabbit) betrayed by Barkus Iscariot

For 30 pieces of Kibbel.

To right-wingers "socialism" means giving free stuff to people who don't deserve it.

Which is incorrect of course. Socialism is the public ownership of the means of production to us academics and pedants. Therefore Social Security is not socialist because recipients earned it.

That is why referring to Social Security as socialist falls on deaf ears.

Point being that trying to educate people who believe in a 6000 year old Earth and think global warming is a hoax is itself a complete waste of time.

Don't believe it? Check out Huffington Post:

Obama says it's OK to ask immigrants to learn English

Former President Barack Obama recently suggested “it’s not racist” to say immigrants in the U.S. should learn English.

“Should we want to encourage newcomers to learn the language of the country that are moving to? Of course. Does that mean that they can never use their own language? No. Of course that doesn’t mean that,” Obama stated at a recent town hall held in Berlin, Germany.

“It’s not racist to say if you’re going to be here, then you should learn the language of the country that you just arrived at, because we need to have some sort of common language in which all of us can work and learn and understand each other,” Obama continued.

Some used that comment to criticize what they see as Democrats’ transformation into a party opposed to immigration enforcement.
