The rethuglicans in office keep trying to help Bernie's campaign.

Gotta love the way they keep trying to commit suicide.

When will someone take pity and refer them to Dr. Kevorkian?

MSNBC carried Trump's whole speech in Las Vegas, I don't know about the Phoenix event, and FOX NEWS didn't talk about either one at all, I am so hoping for a Sanders v Trump that would be awesome!

Trump the CHUMP. I hope the fucker blows a ton of money financing his travesty of a campaign - maybe have to declare bankruptcy - AGAIN.

The rethuglicans hate him more than they did mitten - for speaking out-loud in public crap that they don't want to say in front of the public - like how much they look down on everyone and how racist they are - and how much they strive to get richer on the pain and loss of everyone else and and and . . . . just pointing out so clearly why rethuglicans should all be booted out of office immediately if not sooner.

I just TWINKLED that comment but apparently I still can't vote. Do you know anything about that?

Re. Trump the Chump & Repugnants - http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article42347.htm

From which - ''I believe Donald Trump is deliberately and directly appealing to that white racist core of the Republican Party, and that’s why he is currently number two in the Republican polls. He is selling racism and he is winning.'' This is The Biggest difference between D&R. You should focus on it more!

I don't believe either party has anywhere close to the support of the people

we are simply stuck with the media support reports on these two misrepresentations

True that and perhaps you would like to explain that to Mr.'Don't Know Anything today' below too!

''The business is death, and business is good.'' -- http://www.truth-out.org/opinion/item/31763-the-business-is-death-and-business-is-good is the title and link.

Much truth there, I think. Keep The 99% preoccupied with mere money, while Empire & Fascism role on! Also please do consider the Twitter Alien Meme on the matter of money and by extension .. War! https://twitter.com/PositiveMoneyUK/status/520650927041413121/photo/1 Feel free to follow on Twtr!

@thack86 9h MC1 favorited a Tweet you were mentioned in 16h: @Matt_Holck @ConanOBrien I grew up a huge Carlin fan and was always skeptical of that part of his act. Now I'm not. RIP George, you live on

To understand what happened in US in the 2008 Meltdown and what's been happening on a slower but deeper scale in Portugal, Ireland, Spain and all over Europe, until things came to a head in Greece now because The People AND Government tried to resist, please watch - https://www.youtube.com/watch?t=15&v=xu5sTyAXyAo It's an essential documentary in order to understand fundamental OWS issues.

so the ad I got off youtube when I clicked this video lead up to a movie where a women shots a double barrel gun

The sad truth of the US War Machine abroad underpins much violence and machismo at home and thus also please see http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article42395.htm and consider its implications.

I have some exciting news,

More people have contributed to our campaign than to any other candidate running for president, Democrat or Republican.

That is truly remarkable, and I am humbled by this support. But I will be frank: it may not matter in the end unless we get organized now.

On the evening of July 29, we will kick off building the organization that will take back our country from the billionaire class — and I’m going to speak directly by video to this unprecedented gathering.

People will gather at more than 1,000 homes, restaurants, and other locations across the country for our first ever national organizing meeting, including this event close to you:

Wednesday, July 29ᵗʰ at 5:45 pm CDT Andover, MN Grassroots for Bernie Sanders for President 2016 15570 Linnet Street NW Andover, MN 55304 More about this event: https://go.berniesanders.com/page/event/detail/wtv

But there are many, many more events happening all over. Find other events happening near you, and RSVP to join us for this historic night.

Find more events

At our organizing meetings, you'll have the opportunity to meet other supporters in your area, talk about why you support our campaign, and then tune in to a live broadcast where we will discuss how we take the next step together to build the organization that will change our country.

What we are building together is both unprecedented and critically important to our future. While other candidates may have more money, we have already proven that we have more people — now let's show them what happens when the people unite.

Find and join an organizing meeting for our campaign on July 29.

Thank you.

Bernie Sanders

Sanders supports the bombing of other countries


[-] 1 points by factsrfun (8851) from Phoenix, AZ 2 years ago

just in general, or all of them? hey Matt you having any luck finding an anti-bombing website? I know Bernie is very much against wealth inequality, as am I, as is OWS

Holy fuck its like 2008 all over again.

[-] 2 points by MattHolck0 (3867) 2 years ago

much like when the people thought the government would change with Obama

[-] 1 points by factsrfun (8851) from Phoenix, AZ 2 years ago

those people must have forgot they had a part to play, given what happened in 2010 and 2014, I guess people who think others will/can do it all are just stupid, of course some of us were never taken in by that bullcrap and supported Hillary back in 2008, she would have jailed some bankers, but now we got Bernie at least those of us who want to do something

let's get an outsider that isn't

no worries the 1% will take care of it for you

[-] 1 points by MattHolck0 (3867) 2 years ago

yes

we have been given bernie as a option with who leaads as the US continues tom bomb other cvontries

[-] 0 points by factsrfun (8851) from Phoenix, AZ 2 years ago

you know some try to co-opt OWS to kickstart ego driven bullshit political parties, others want to divert OWS from its core mission of addressing wealth inequality, co-opters come in all types I guess

actions speak louder than than arbitrary money numbers NO WAR

[-] 0 points by factsrfun (8851) from Phoenix, AZ 2 years ago

yeah why would people on this site care about money? oh that's right, it's what the whole thing was about from the beginning, but I guess if you can't find an anti-war site anywhere you might as well post here......

turbo are you worried he may raise taxes?

[-] 1 points by DKAtoday (33167) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

NO - not at all.

But you go ahead and draw your stupid comparisons anyway!

[-] 0 points by factsrfun (8851) from Phoenix, AZ 2 years ago

you should have seen the crowd Bernie had in Phoenix last night it was HUGE

[-] 0 points by turbocharger (1756) 2 years ago

Ya I saw it, I also saw that people are sick of these idiot politicians and basically hijacked the event, as they should have.

How insulting to have rich white guys come into your town and talk about this that and the other thing.

You got a nice glimpse of Bernie - and the fact that he's a career politician- in his remarks to the moderator.

Politicians don't like not being in control. Its what they thrive on.

Thankfully those protesters told em to screw themselves.

More help for Bernie - provided by the rethuglicans in office:
