Bernie's best primary states lie ahead -- but only if people turn off their televisions

http://www.smirkingchimp.com/thread/david-swanson/66241/hillaridrumpf

His best primary states lie ahead -- but only if people turn off their televisions and block out the endless repetition of the idea that Hillary's antidemocratic superdelegates, and states that have already voted have decided everything.

2. Good luck, then.

I think the quote was attributed to Marx, the whole "religion is the opiate of the masses" thing-- if he could see things nowadays, he'd shit enough bricks to build himself a new mausoleum, and then go lay down in it. 24 hour "news" cycles are the new opiate of the masses.

4. The only people that really listen and base their decisions on traditional media are the

older folks that are already in Hillary's corner.

10. I agree with that

Bernie supporters are pissed off at and wary of the entire system including corporate media. While corporate media's message that Bernie's campaign was doomed heading into Super Tuesday, Bernie's supporters donated over $6 million to his campaign in the last 24 hours.

11. By March 15 things will become much clearer to Bernie supporters.

 

Hillary already has Florida and Louisiana. I think Ohio, Pennsylvanis and New York will go to Hillary. Michigan could be a battle. But, I think you know where I'm going with this.

22. Do you ever actually contribute anything of substance?

 

Or is it nothing but inane, deflective one-liners...? Way to rep your candidate...

24. If your reality consists of reactionary one-liners and transparent deflections...

 

...then may I strongly suggest hallucinogens.

Lots and lots of hallucinogens...
