Professor Cornell West posted a message on Facebook stating, "Senator Bernie Sanders is one of the few elected officials who is fundamentally devoted to dealing with the plight of poor & working people."

I wonder if Dr. West will make an official endorsement.

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

because the established media wants to stay established

[-] 1 points by factsrfun (8838) from Phoenix, AZ 2 years ago

many pretend they can be absolved if they take no stand

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

or a least keep their job

[-] 0 points by factsrfun (8838) from Phoenix, AZ 2 years ago

nice how the founders are coming out in support of Bernie, maybe there is hope after all

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

hope is irrational

[-] 1 points by factsrfun (8838) from Phoenix, AZ 1 year ago

I guess there no harm in just bumping this then....

If you have no hope. Why haven't you checked out yet?

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

because I'm already happy

[-] -3 points by DKAtoday (33164) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

You are happy - with no job - with no prospects for a job - with nothing to look forward to . . . . Hell Doormat - you should bottle that and sell it.

So Bernie did get Cornell West's endorsement so I guess the "real radicals" on here will start attacking him now.

Individuals attacking Bernie are individuals who support the corporations and the obscenely wealthy.

"if you aren't with us your against us" bush or any other tyrant

[-] -1 points by factsrfun (8838) from Phoenix, AZ 2 years ago

you can either allow the GOP to be elected and allow the airstrikes or you can do something to stop them, the airstrikes are a result of the W Bush wars, bush was allowed to win the WH by nader and the Greens and other fools who don't vote, it's not about "being with us" it's about allowing airstrikes and you allow them with your non action

You allow the GOP to be elected that makes you just as responsible for the airstrikes as any Senator.

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

the airstrikes are a on going war conducted by the DOD and other non -elected officials if the US

[-] -1 points by factsrfun (8838) from Phoenix, AZ 2 years ago

and you allow them as you have not removed the people who empower them from power, it is a fact that the airstrikes would not be happening if the towers were still standing the consequences of allowing W Bush to win the WH will be with us for a very long time the answer is certainly not allowing his brother to win the WH by writing in some stupid shit like "NO WAR"

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

air strikes US crime before 2 towers

[-] 1 points by factsrfun (8838) from Phoenix, AZ 2 years ago

Any luck getting that anti-airstrike website off the ground? You really should seeing how it's been going on for so long.

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

I don't need a website

[-] -1 points by factsrfun (8838) from Phoenix, AZ 2 years ago

co-opting is as good as building eh? I saw where you allowed 13 more airstrikes today.

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

one always builds

[-] -1 points by factsrfun (8838) from Phoenix, AZ 2 years ago

you're doing a great job of building the GOP

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

doom is so old but I'm older

shall we stop dropping bombs today ?

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

See how that goes Matt? So called decent human beings are so brainwashed they are willing to endorse perpetual war.

Bush won, game over.

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

Stop dropping bombs now: there are no second chances

[-] -1 points by factsrfun (8838) from Phoenix, AZ 2 years ago

Bernie voted against the war, but you don't care you only care about your taxes.

You and Matt and Shadz all joined together by your hatred of the Democrats the one thing you all actually care about.

[-] -1 points by factsrfun (8838) from Phoenix, AZ 2 years ago

The GOP which you allow to be elected would like to drop more not less.

Bernie Sanders voted against war, but you don't care, he's not perfect like you.

[-] -2 points by factsrfun (8838) from Phoenix, AZ 2 years ago

why should we?

so you are old enough to have helped elect W Bush how about his father did you help 41 as well?

[-] 2 points by lugano (1221) 2 years ago

So is it ''a fact that the airstrikes would not be happening if the towers were still standing''?! And - who brought down 3 towers with 2 planes - by the action of fires burning for a li'l over an hour (WTC1and2), thus negating, ALL Civil Engineering Building Regulations & Laws of Physics - throughout The Known Universe?! Your ENTIRE reality is based on lies, half-truths and total deceit but - you have not got the balls to face it! Also fyi see http://www.ae911truth.org/ & time for The 9/!! Meme-Equation, me thinks:

9/!! - NORAD + (WTC1 + WTC2) + {WTC7 x WTF!} + [Pentagon - Plane + GlobalHawk / CruiseMissile] + UA93 - C.S.I. = Coup d'Etat to enable ''The Clash of Civilisations'' - so beloved and essential to some!

[-] -1 points by factsrfun (8838) from Phoenix, AZ 2 years ago

Cheny and Bush allowed the towers to fall through their incompetence, they were elected with the aid of the ego whore Nader, facts are what they are no matter how inconvenient you may find them.

[-] -2 points by factsrfun (8838) from Phoenix, AZ 2 years ago

conspiracy bullshit that is BANNED from the site and explains why you have been banned so many times Shadz

[-] 1 points by lugano (1221) 2 years ago

Shilling For Democraps is ''BANNED from the site'' - for sure! Furthermore, it is very interesting indeed to me that you would accept Repugnant POTUS GWBush's ''9/!! Commission Report" and - their version of events & so possibly and presumably, the subsequent illegal wars! +Have u even heard of WTC-Bldg.7?!

You're a two faced weasel, whose primary propensity is to accept the version of ''News'' that comes out of your Propaganda-Box, brought to you by the very Same Corporations who are integral to the US-MIC.

Your inherent conservatism is noted - yet again! + Further to http://www.ae911truth.org/ above, also fyi, perhaps try to engage with .. http://www.globalresearch.ca/did-9-11-justify-the-war-in-afghanistan/19891 by the inestimable Dr.David Ray Griffin who has more integrity than all The 9/11 Commission combined.

[-] -1 points by factsrfun (8838) from Phoenix, AZ 2 years ago

yeah that's why I'm still using the same ID since 2011.....

[-] -2 points by DKAtoday (33164) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

The best that can be said about "you" - is that you are a determined quisling for the 1% - pushing nothing forward to make this a better world for all - hiding behind revolutionary speak and telling everyone to opt out!

[-] 3 points by lugano (1221) 2 years ago

Your idea of ''doing something'' - would start and end by just blindly voting Democrap, even if the likes of Kshama Sawant was standing for election! Your and frf's conservative nature, has been apparent around here from the get go, so run along now DKhead - before I have to start copying your toilet-mouthed PMs to me for all to see. + fyi see: http://www.truth-out.org/opinion/item/32504-it-s-all-part-of-capitalism-how-philanthropy-perpetuates-inequality Keep voting for the Corporate Status Quo, hoping things will change!

Did you catch FartsRFun slamming democracy as usual on that other comment?

These idiots have no idea how bad the elites have rigged the entire system.

I agree, I think there is a real chance this could be a breakthrough election, I hope so.

[-] 1 points by DKAtoday (33164) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

This country needs that breakthrough - in every level/office in state and federal government.

[-] 1 points by factsrfun (8838) from Phoenix, AZ 2 years ago

This is just the sort of thing Bernie needs to break through the MSM barrier.

[-] 1 points by DKAtoday (33164) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

MSM is trying to put ugly spin on the whole thing ("surprise").

[-] 1 points by factsrfun (8838) from Phoenix, AZ 2 years ago

MSM is desperate not to talk about the issues Bernie is bringing up, if the people that brought OWS to the national forefront get involved this could very well be a ground breaking election.

[-] 1 points by DKAtoday (33164) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

That's why they pump the trump and the rest of the circus as well as HRC's e-mails. They want to distract the public away from dealing with real issues.

[-] 1 points by factsrfun (8838) from Phoenix, AZ 2 years ago

I'm watching Morning Joe even these fools are starting to realize Hillary is not a forgone conclusion, I have been posting for some time now that she would not be the nominee, this is the year, last night Biden pretty much said he wasn't running, while everyone is watching Trump a Democratic Socialist is going to be elected President and life will get interesting.....

[-] 1 points by DKAtoday (33164) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

Bernie will need support - like he says - he can't do it by himself - so lets hope that that message makes it into the public awareness for the other upcoming offices.

[-] 1 points by factsrfun (8838) from Phoenix, AZ 2 years ago

What do you think of Cory Booker as a running mate?

[-] 2 points by DKAtoday (33164) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

To be honest - I don't know anything about Cory. I would prefer Elizabeth - but perhaps she would be better for us all by continuing where she is at - that way we wouldn't lose good support for us and anything that Bernie would try to bring forward.

[-] 1 points by factsrfun (8838) from Phoenix, AZ 2 years ago

She won't run and she is too old to run for top of ticket after serving.

I guess not.
