    Sanders causes a stir. You gotta love it.

    To this date, I absolutely love this guy. He’s like the energizer bunny… He keeps going and going, and going…..

    The dems are going to hold dufus to his campaign tweets.

          17. my feelings too

          once he is inaugurated, i think we’ll be seeing a much different trump. he’ll be a convenient idiot for the neocons, like shrub was.

          i absolutely DID NOT vote for him though. the thought of it was abhorrent, even before the nasty things he said and did ever came out.

    5. So, is Trump gonna

    admit he lied? Or will he stick to his campaign bullshit?

    6. According to some in media, New Democrat Chuck Schumer has been the

    leading Progressive for the past two years.  Bernie is a Independent again.  He needs his own Party.  Progressive Senators may have to campaign within the Democratic Party through early Nov 2018, but after that, perhaps the Independents may form their own Party.  There are many many Independents and the number may grow quickly.

    Bernie is such a grand champion for doing what is best for the People.

    9. I love the photo that accompanies the article

    It has Bernie in front at a lectern and everyone else BEHIND him.

    As it should be.

    10. .

    “The [Clinton’s New York] house is right next to one of my golf courses, and, you know, I just wish I could have maybe represented him in buying the house, and her, because I think I could save them about $600,000 or $700,000.” — “Larry King Live,” 1999

    “I’ve been so lucky in terms of that whole world. It is a dangerous world out there — it’s scary, like Vietnam. Sort of like the Vietnam era. It is my personal Vietnam. I feel like a great and very brave soldier.” — on sleeping with women who could have STDs, “The Howard Stern Show”

    “I love Oprah. Oprah would always be my first choice [for Vice President]” — “Larry King Live,” 1999

    We can thank the rich for one thing - times are changing due to the silent depression in the working class. I don't think the rich will be happy with the changes, but they forced it upon themselves through greed and avarice.

    13. But he dropped out. He didnt cause a stir, he fucked up

    Bernie would have won, but he dropped out. he can afford the luxury, the country can’t. Fast Track is six years and don’t you be fooled for a moment that they wont use it.

    Now we pay a huge cost.

    Bye bye democracy.  Trade deals are forever, so say good bye to any hope of affordable public healthcare, education, and any other service in any sector except services

    supplied in the exercise of governmental authority;

    Article I:3 does not define the term “services” precisely, rather, it states that
    “any service in any sector”
    6
    is covered by the GATS, except “services supplied
    in the exercise of governmental authority”. This provision gives a very broad
    scope to the GATS with respect to the services potentially covered by its
    disciplines.
    Article I.3(b) of the GATS establishes a significant exception from the scope
    of application of the GATS for services that are “supplied in the exercise of
    governmental authority”. This phrase is defined as follows:
    3. For the purposes of this Agreement:
    (c)
    “a service supplied in the exercise of governmental authority”
    means any service which is supplied neither on a commercial
    basis nor in competition with one or more service suppliers.

      14. Bernie didn't drop out. He ran all the way to the convention like he promised.

      He caused a giant stir while doing it.   He worked as hard as possible to prop up the party’s lame presidential campaign, and he’s been whipping the democratic leadership into shape instead of letting them sulk after their routing.

      Not sure what else you’re expecting out of him.

        16. I agree to a point.

        If anything, he should now (maybe little by little) start mentioning/acknowledging how the primary was rigged.  He has no problem repeating the oft “The Russians are coming!” lie.

        Love Bernie, but he needs to grow a pair (I’d be DAMNED if that bitch cheated me AND I stay quiet about it.)

        19. What would you expect with Fast Track being there.

        Read this short course on a 1990s trade deal, what in it is inconsistent with the BS line about health care that we are fed. Its right at the beginning. BTW, this is from the UN Council on Trade and Development.

    15. Yay! Bernie!

    I like that he’s keeping it about policy and not personality.

      20. Half a million dollars per American difference in cost of healthcare alone

      We sure are generous.

      We’ll see how happy you are in a few years.

      21. Only a million people have died so far.

      Excess deaths amenable to improved health care.

      People have a very high capacity for suffering.

      This is what happens when there is no accountability.
