Fun fact -- did y'all know that song was written by Shel Silverstein, author of Where the Sidewalk Ends and other poetry books?

Rolling Stone: You made news recently calling for federal legislation that would safeguard state marijuana legalization.

Bernie Sanders: It'll be a major step forward if we take marijuana out of the Controlled Substances Act and allow those states – there are four, plus D.C., and others will follow – to do what they wanna do and legalize marijuana.

break my own policy and buy this issue. I haven't bought an issue of RS in forever....they've not been relevant to music in quite some time, preferring to be the Time magazine for the gee-I-wish-it-was-still-the-Sixties set.

Since this applies more to our times than it did when Bill was running Bernie really needs to take this old slogan out of mothballs. The delicious irony of it would be so satisfying.

On Bernie's strategy:

Sanders has already altered the course of the 2016 campaign. His resonance with the Democratic Party's activist base has forced Clinton to tack left, repeatedly. But don't mistake this as Sanders' endgame. "Bernie's campaign is more than symbolic – it's real, and it can succeed," says senior adviser Tad Devine, a veteran of Al Gore's 2000 bid. The Sanders machine is built to slingshot to an early lead, propelled by grassroots excitement in Iowa and New Hampshire, and then to fight, delegate by delegate, all the way to the convention. And recent polls counter the notion that Sanders is "unelectable." An October NBC News/Wall Street Journal survey shows Sanders besting Donald Trump by nine points, Marco Rubio by five.

In other words, we Bernie supporters should not worry about the polls yet. It's too early. Bernie is rolling his campaign across the country. This is s great strategy. Bernie will win in November 2016. That's a year from now. Lots of time. Many primaries to go yet.

And . . . .

How Bernie will accomplish his goals:

How would you keep your supporters involved from the Oval Office?
Look, politicians respond. If the people are asleep and not involved, they respond to the lobbyists and donors. But when people speak up and fight, if you want to survive [as a politician], you have to respond. My job is to activate people to fight for their rights and to force Congress to respond to the needs of working families.

What the president can do is to say to the American people, "OK, if you think that it is important that public colleges and universities are tuition-free, and that that program be paid for based on a tax on Wall Street speculation, well, on March 15th there is going to be a vote in the House, and let's see if we can bring large numbers of people here to Washington to say hello to members of Congress. Let us make every member of Congress aware that millions of people are involved in this issue. They know how you are going to vote." Of course we'll win that.

What is wrong with you?

Why do you insist on smearing one of the most progressive senators we've ever had?

Because he challenged Hillary?

I can only imagine what you must have said about Obama in 2008.
