When will they ever learn to listen to the people-- recommend listening to these people and their experiences, Starts at 3min. 10 sec.:



Edited to add, "This is a guy who does not want to raise the minimum wage. In fact, he has said that he thinks wages in America are too high.

They booed one of the most loved, honest politicians, ever!

He was the only politician like FDR and Kennedy when he speaks, a truly great man with a love for all people and the courage to stand up to the rich and powerful.

"Today, the Supreme Court, of Chief Justice John Roberts, in a decision that might actually have more dire implications than "Dred Scott v Sandford," declared that because of the alchemy of its 19th Century predecessors in deciding that corporations had all the rights of people, any restrictions on how these corporate-beings spend their money on political advertising, are unconstitutional.

In short, the first amendment — free speech for persons — which went into affect in 1791, applies to corporations, which were not recognized as the equivalents of persons until 1886. In short, there are now no checks on the ability of corporations or unions or other giant aggregations of power to decide our elections.

None. They can spend all the money they want. And if they can spend all the money they want — sooner, rather than later — they will implant the legislators of their choice in every office from President to head of the Visiting Nurse Service. ..."

With the DNC Chair Admitting System Rigged Against Bernie



Debbie Wasserman Schultz admitted in a CNN interview that the system of Super Delegates is purposely designed to protect establishment candidates and stop grassroots candidates, and is rigged for that very purpose. No gray area, she is quite clear. DWS needs to not only resign her position at the DNC but should seriously consider resigning her DEMOCRATIC membership as she is participating in a system that is inherently rigged and UN-Democratic. She admits she knows it, and continues to play it that way.

"Un-pledged (Super) Delegates exist, really, to make sure that party leaders and elected officials don't have to be in a position where they are running against grassroots activists."

Bernie Sanders Reacts To Donald Trump Backing Out Of Debate

The sound quality isn't the best because of wind.

"Bernie Sanders Reacts To Donald Trump Backing Out Of Debate. Donald Trump just issued a statement backing out of the debate he said he would do with Bernie Sanders, and blaming Hillary Clinton and DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz: “Based on the fact that the Democratic nominating process is totally rigged and crooked Hillary Clinton and Debbie Wasserman Schultz will not allow Bernie Sanders to win, it seems inappropriate that I would debate the second place finisher.” That sound you hear is the weeping of TV news execs mourning what might have been – Superbowl -sized ratings for a televised debate between Trump and the Vermont senator who is running against Clinton for the Dem nomination. Campaign execs on both sides said multiple TV networks had been talking to the candidates about televising the debate, some even agreeing to Trump’s demand the lucky network cough up millions of dollars to go to an unnamed women’s health charity. There had been signs of trouble today before Trump pulled out. Bernie Sanders’ campaign manager Jeff Weaver this morning said a “number of network have put forth proposals, including some that would put seven-figure amounts into charity,” per Trump’s demand."

“This seems to meet the parameters of what Donald Trump suggested he’d be willing to do,” Weaver said. But, he told CNN, “There is a little bit of foot dragging now, it seems, on their side. It may be that there may be some chickening out, or an unwillingness to stand on stage and really debate with Bernie Sanders because they know Bernie sanders would do quite well on the debate frankly.”
