Bernie Sanders warns Democratic rivals for presidency: don't underestimate me.

Bernie Sanders warns Democratic rivals for presidency: don't underestimate me
The Vermont senator – a ‘badass leftwinger’ – may scoop up Warren supporters and his personal style is likely to play well in neighbouring New Hampshire



...........

He rejects the notion that he’s simply in the race to shape the debate.

“Hillary Clinton is a candidate, I am a candidate,” Sanders said. “I suspect there will be other candidates. The people in this country will make their choice.”

...........

If Sanders is the underdog, that’s fine by him. During the 1970s, he lost four statewide elections as a third-party candidate, and then narrowly defeated a Democratic incumbent in 1981 to become Burlington’s mayor.

...........

The lessons, he said, are clear: “Don’t underestimate me.”

I didn't serve in Vietnam for freedom...

by Z. Woof



I didn't serve in Vietnam for freedom...

or liberty, or the flag.

I didn't serve for the reasons people think of when they tell me, "Thanks for your service."

I knew that this war was not about any of that stuff.

I served for 365 days and a wake up, as we called it.

I served so I would not be imprisoned by my government.

I served because my father asked me to. Later, he admitted he was wrong and apologized.

I served with these guys.



I served to save them and myself for 365 days and a wake up.

I failed.

State trooper who let Duggar off with a "stern talk" now serving 60 year sentence for child porn

Joseph T. Hutchens

In 2003, following Josh’s return home, Jim Bob Duggar and several church elders took Josh to Arkansas State Trooper Joseph T. Hutchens. Instead of taking procedural action against Josh, Hutchens gave Josh a “very stern talk” on the matter.

Hutchens would never follow up with the Duggars on the matter.

Hutchens’ name would surface again in 2007, when he was convicted on child pornography charges. Hutchens was paroled in 2010, but almost immediately was arrested again and charged with four counts of distribution, possession, or viewing of sexually explicit material involving a child.

He is currently serving a 60 year sentence and is not eligible for parole until 2020.
