Thanks for taking time to post this Robbins.

As a former reporter, I have a better understanding of polls and how they function. So stuff coming from Hillery's plastic campaign, I let it go in one ear and out the other. I also shake my head as to how people can vote against their own self interest.

After seeing Bernie all these years and announcing he was going for it, I knew right then I am going to back him. I wanted Senator Warren initially-like many others. But Bernie's campaign is growing on a daily basis. And that's a good thing.

Like many other DU'ers in this group, I also saw this (as a progressive) as our time--our time to truly take back our country from the corporate everything crowd.

So again, thanks Robbins. Your words are needed as a constant reminder for all of us.

Nina's Issues...

...are Bernie's issues.

"When I overlay what I care about most, what issues matter to me the most, from civil rights, voting rights, and human rights, when I overlay those things against what Bernie Sanders believes, endorsing him just made sense to me."

Nina is awsome. I love her because she is a fighter--just as Bernie is. Only difference is, Bernie has been at it longer.

I would much rather be in the pockets of labor unions than Wall Street anytime.

Unions have a better effect on peoples lives than a corrupt and criminal financial institution. And I would be proud to brag about it too.

Bernie Interviewed on Yahoo by Katie Couric On Foreign Policy, Paris

I saw the first interview Katie did with Bernie several weeks ago, and in my mind, seemed interested in Bernie's position on most domestic issues. This time, she comes across much more aggressive and pushy on questions pertaining to terrorism and what happened in Paris. One of her questions was, (paraphrasing) "many of your critics claim you lack knowledge in foreign policy issues." She could have phrased that question differently IMO. It came across as insulting. At least it seemed that way to me.

But Bernie handled the interview well despite Katie's attempt to create controversy.

In regards to #7

We are already slaves to our corporate masters. Take the media for example. There are only about 5 major companies that control what news we see and hear. Have you noticed? Do you hear stories from ABC or CBS about jobs going to China? You would be hard pressed to tell us any one of these networks does a story on families that struggle on minimum wage jobs. I would hate to think of what her Justice Department/SC picks would look like. Did you hear the story of the Supreme Courts ruling on police authority if a suspect runs from a police officer? According to the SC they can shoot you--dead. Period. That was their ruling today. Case is from Texasistan--aka Texas. Go look it up. I'm disgusted but not surprised.

I will not vote for the lesser of 2 corporate evils.

Triple Thanks for this side of Bernie

I wouldn't mind being President Of CNN Either. Would without a doubt make the same changes he's thinking of since I am a product of the Edward R. Murrow school. Infotainment-News would go in the trash where it belongs.

"To be persuasive, we must be believable; to be believable, we must be credible; to be credible, we must be truthful."

A Huge K & R

We have to keep pumped up people. Don't let the negative polls or verbal rhetoric or verbal assaults stop us from the ultimate prize: Getting our country back from the oligarchs. Period. End of discussion.

You hit the nail on the head JD

I am hoping there was a segment of the population who saw this and told themselves they like Bernie's vision for the country. He was very clear and concise to Charlie's questions.

I am praying that when it comes to to mark that ballot they will make a clear common sense decision of what their future holds. Climate change, as an example, should be a top-priority issue for many Americans. Lets hope they are paying attention.

I'm hoping to get me a critter around March.

At least I'm feeling serious about adopting one. Was a bit unsure at first.
