Bill Clinton Thinks Vulture Capitalism Is Good Work Remember

Bill Clinton seems to think being a vulture capitalist is fine. Taking over companies, stripping them of their assets, and bankrupting them for profit, while dumping the employees along with their pensions is "good work".

Sorry Mr. Clinton. Profiting off of robbing people of their pensions is not good work.

Bill Clinton: "I don't think we ought to get into the position where we say, 'This is bad work. This is good work,' " Clinton told guest host Harvey Weinstein, a staunch Obama supporter who has helped raise millions of dollars for the president's reelection campaign.

Now I could go on, and maybe the big dog misspoke. I can't remember him issuing a retraction though.

I guess he thinks how Mitt Romney made his money is fine.

And we want his wife running this country?

Really?

Why, just because she would be better than a Cruz, Rubio, or Trump?

I think I am gonna be sick.... I mean real sick.

I can't wait for the Hillary lubbers to come out and defend Mitt......

How Many Million Did Goldman Sachs Kill?

"In a global jolt of hunger, 200 million people – mostly children – couldn't afford to get food any more, and sank into malnutrition or starvation. There were riots in more than 30 countries, and at least one government was violently overthrown."

Thank You Goldman Sachs

For being the most evil pile of scum since the Nazis.

Gensler Came to the Obama Administration from Goldman Sachs

Do you understand?

https://theintercept.com/2016/01/07/the-problem-with-hillary-clinton-using-gary-gensler-to-attack-bernie-sanders/

Gensler is part of the problem. The company he worked for Goldman Sachs killed millions by starving them to death. Mostly children. Now he is the Clinton campaign’s chief financial officer. I guess he was finished helping Obama neglect to prosecute the banksters?

http://www.independent.co.uk/voices/commentators/johann-hari/johann-hari-how-goldman-gambled-on-starvation-2016088.html

Goldman, and their buddies, to make a buck off food commodities, put ONE BILLION PEOPLE at risk for starvation.

Way to go Clinton Gang!

Talk about an unreported story, how many people starved to death when wheat price went up to $25 a bushel.

"Gensler, who is the Clinton campaign’s chief financial officer"

Tell Howard Dean Bernie Is Waaaaaay More Electable

Howard is a very capable Democrat. I just can't see why he would support Hillary over Bernie, when Bernie's coat tails will be far longer, broader, and wider. In fact over 20% of the REPUBLICANS (not independents) in Vermont voted for him. With Bernie as our nominee we take the Senate back, and have a chance at the house. With Hillary, good luck. The mouth breathers will crawl out of their graves to vote against her, and the millennials won't stand in a 6 hour line to vote for her. Turnout baby.

Someone please tell Howard nominating Bernie is what our party needs, not another main stream, regular old politician, pretending to be a progressive, while cashing $400,000 Goldman Sachs checks.....

I like Hillary, and will support her if she is the nominee. She just isn't what my party and my country needs at this moment in history.

Bernie is far more electable.

Far more.

Zero baggage.

Socialism isn't baggage. We already live in a socialist country. Social Security, Police, Fire, Highways, Water, Military etc.

I know there are a lot of morans that think socialism is the same as communism. That's their problem. They are the same people that thinks de-regulating corporations is good, and trickle down worked, and even think Reagan (the Republican God) was a great president, when the numbers (debt, contra, recession, and much much more) say different.

Leave No Child Unshot

N. R. A.

Their only true goal. Leave No Child Unshot

Plain as day.

Pretty sick if you ask me......

What Unchallenged Lie Is Trump Spewing Today?

I haven't had time to turn on the TV and get upset....

CNN / MSNBC / The Rest - Get Trump Out Of My Face - NOW

Reposted:

I am sick of being insulted by you, and him, and having to look at his face and hear his (unchallenged) lies.

Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump.....

Every time you show his face on TV, it is an insult to me, and anyone with a working brain.

I am sick of it ya hear?

Do You Hear Me????

Find something else to gush over jerks.

How Many Hillary "Endorsers" Are Part Of The Problem?

Of all the people that endorsed Hillary for 2016, and I know there are a lot, how many claimed the crooks on Wall Street need to be brought to justice for their crimes?

Everyone with half a brain knows laws were broken by the "crooked class" causing the economic meltdown in 2008.

In my opinion, if you were not calling for justice to be served on the crooks that stole our country into an economic wipeout for millions of Americans, you are PART OF THE PROBLEM.

This includes Democrats.

Now how many of the Democrats that endorsed Hillary called for justice for the crooks?

I know a few did.

The rest are part of the problem that is destroying our country and our planet.

Sorry.

I call em as I see em.

If Wall Street gets to steal all they want, don't ever plan on having a pot to piss in, for long.

Bernie Fundraising E-Mail "We must dismantle the corrupt system of campaign finance"

Dear ####, < ---- Me

“I like to give on a scale where I can see impact...” - David Koch

Earlier this year, a number of Republicans flew to California to make fundraising pitches to more than four hundred wealthy conservative donors attending a private conference hosted by the Koch brothers.

It’s worth taking a moment to ask the question, who are the Koch brothers, and what do they want?

The Koch brothers are the second-wealthiest family in America worth $82 billion. For the Koch brothers, $82 billion in wealth apparently is not good enough. Owning the second-largest private company in America is apparently not good enough. It doesn’t appear that they will be satisfied until they are able to control the entire political process.

This issue isn't personal for me. I don't know the Koch brothers, but I do know this. They have advocated for destroying the federal programs that are critical to the financial and personal health of middle class Americans.

Now, most Americans know that the Koch brothers are the primary source of funding for the Tea Party, and that’s fine. They know that they favor the outright repeal of the Affordable Care Act, and that’s their opinion. It’s wrong, but that’s fine as well.

But it is not widely known that David Koch once ran for Vice President of the United States of America on the Libertarian Party ticket because he believed Ronald Reagan was much too liberal. And he ran on a platform that included the following:

“We favor the repeal of the fraudulent, virtually bankrupt and increasingly oppressive Social Security system.”
“We favor the abolition of Medicare and Medicaid programs.”
“We support repeal of all laws which impede the ability of any person to find employment, such as minimum wage laws…”
“We support the eventual repeal of all taxation.”

In 1980, David Koch’s presidential ticket received one percent of the vote from the American people. And rightly so. His views were so extreme they were rejected completely out of hand by the American people.

But fast forward almost thirty-six years, and one of the most significant realities of modern politics is just how successful David Koch and the like-minded billionaires attending his retreat have been at moving the Republican Party to the extreme right. The ideas above that were dismissed as downright crazy in 1980 are now part of today’s mainstream Republican thinking.

The Koch brothers, and billionaires like them, have bought up the private sector and now they’re buying up the government. It’s up to us to put a stop to them, but it will require all of us standing together with one voice on this issue.

Your donation to our campaign today is a contribution towards the dismantling of a corrupt system of campaign finance held in place by the Koch brothers and their billionaire friends:

If you've saved your payment information with ActBlue Express, your donation will go through immediately:

Here’s the truth: The economic and political systems of this country are stacked against ordinary Americans. The rich get richer and use their wealth to buy elections, and I believe that we cannot change this corrupt system by taking its money. If we’re serious about creating jobs, health care for all, climate change, and the needs of our children and the elderly, we must be serious about campaign finance reform.

So far in this election, less than four hundred families have contributed the majority of all the money raised by all the candidates and super PACs combined. According to media reports, one family will spend more money in this election than either the Democratic or Republican Parties.

This is not democracy. This is oligarchy.

Our job is not to think small in this moment. The current system of campaign finance in this country is utterly corrupt. That is one of the reasons I am so proud of how we have funded our campaign — over 2.5 million contributions from working Americans giving less than $30 at a time. But our campaign is unique.

We must pass a constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United, and I will not nominate any justice to the Supreme Court who does not make it abundantly clear that she or he will overturn that decision. We need legislation that requires wealthy individuals and corporations who make large campaign contributions to disclose where their money is going. And more importantly, I believe we need to move towards the public funding of elections.

Our vision for American democracy should be a nation in which all people, regardless of their income, can participate in the political process, can run for office without begging for contributions from the wealthy and the powerful.

Your donation to our campaign today is a contribution towards the dismantling of a corrupt system of campaign finance held in place by the Koch brothers and their billionaire friends.

Tomorrow afternoon I’ll be in New York City to deliver a major speech about our need to create a financial system that works for all Americans, not just the few. I’ll be in touch shortly after. I hope that you’ll keep an eye on your inbox for my message.

In solidarity,

Bernie Sanders

Trump: "And she, for the most part, was in charge of it, along with Obama"

Really. Hillary, and Obama were in charge of killing Saddam, and putting Iran in charge of Iraq.

Really.

What could possibly go wrong.

No, I mean really Trump?

Are you an idiot?

Hillary voted to authorize Bush's invasion, but to blame her for the chaos is the ravings of a lunatic. She wasn't in command.

Bush blew the hell out of the place, and lit up the Abu Gharib torture chambers, and PBO and Secretary Clinton were supposed to put it all back together? Really? Make it all just Hunky Dory right?

Trump, you are a psycho. I know this kind of talk plays well with the your low IQ followers who don't give a damn about what is true, or false, real, or pretend..... The average Republican brain dead psychopath.
