  1. Every single person on this planet experiences a life full of pain and suffering. The fact that this guy, who's lived a full life of wealth, fame, and admiration, is somehow excused from any harshness for his divisive, destructive antics because he's got cancer is about as silly as it gets. I know, I know. Don't let the door hit me in the ###.
  2. Cosby and Weinstein proving that hobbling into court with a walker doesn't garner sympathy with the jury.
  3. I like that Hillary has better odds than Warren. LOL.
  4. Yep. I've sensed this unfolding for the last few months. People don't learn. I really think the American people get what they deserve and unfortunately it looks like we deserve another four years of Trump.
  5. I just received one too (Florida). I'm back in on this guy. I still think he's the only one to beat Trump and that's priority one.
  6. Anecdote that went exactly as I expected: I'm watching coverage of Nevada caucus on Saturday and 20 year old daughter and her friend pass by. "Isn't that the socialist? Booo!" Then the next morning she asks, "do you like him?" I told her I'm not a huge fan although I agree that the US shouldn't be the only industrialized nation without public healthcare. When I asked what she thought about that, she said, "well I don't want my taxes to go up. I pay enough." People don't want to vote for Trump. However, it will be easy for Trump to sell "socialist" and "tax increases" to keep them from voting Sanders. Nuance is lost on most and it's all about marketing. Sanders will lose. Socialism isn't popular with most Americans
  7. This will end up being a bigger misfire than your 'Ameer Abdullah looks like the next Barry Sanders' take.
  8. Count me as one of them. Words have meaning, but most of the American public isn't going to do the research necessary to see the difference between Sanders and socialism or communism. All they are going to hear is "Socialism" which is bad. Or "Communism" which is bad. Capitalism is good. Businessman is good. Free stuff that you can't pay for is bad. This is about marketing, not policy or true definitions of words.
  9. Ding ding ding! Wake up, Democrats. Bernie Sanders is a yuuuuuuuuge mistake.
  10. That was definitely his highlight. And he's right: If Democrats want four more years of Trump, they just need to keep vilifying capitalism.
  11. It does for a moderate viewer who sees two others on the stage attacking capitalism.
  12. So chaos and descension into a banana republic for the small chance at more parties. Cool.
  13. And what do you prognosticate is the result?
