Last summer, my 16-year-old daughter asked me whether I felt the Bern. “Did you leave the stove on again?” I asked her.
I found it interesting when I dug a little more deeply. into Andrew Jackson's "quote."
I had somehow "learned" that this remark was based on the USSC ruling in favor of the Navite Americans and prohibiting Jackson from forcing them on the Trail of Tears. ( I doubt that I'm alone in that "learning.")
The "bathroom" portion of this bill is a sideshow, redirecting everyone's attention from Article 2 of the bill, which establishes that no county or city government can raise its minimum wage above the state's level. it also establishes that no county or local government may use their own wage/worker compensation (or other) requirements, or regulations that are above and beyond State-level requirement when negotiating or bidding out for companies to contract work with.
If Bernie Said it, the media would be all over it and he'd be shamed out of the race. Context wouldn't matter.
Video emerged this past weekend of New York City mayor Bill de Blasio and Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton making a joke about "C.P. Time."

I. Fallacies against supporting Bernie Sanders (who, let's say represents most of us)
“He’s a relatively new Democrat,” Clinton said. “I’m not even sure he is one. He's running as one. So I don't know quite how to characterize him. I'll leave that to him.”
Hillary Clinton Accused Of Using Static Noise To Conceal Fundraising Speech
Could someone please, for the love of sanity, tell my why, would BLM, an organization claiming to be defending lower income African Americans, attack the embodiment of the welfare state that is Bernie Sanders, and, within weeks, have a nice kind chat with Hillary, who, as some pointed out on Tom's most recent program, is married to the one man who's done the most damage to lower income communities of color since Reagan was in charge. Clinton, who yes, not only slotted a bunch of non-violent criminals into cells, but also slashed welfare more than any president since the New Deal.
Credit for this one goes to my friend's 75-year old Irish Catholic Priest brother. The following is quoting an email he sent to a few family members and friends.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) said that its aircraft were mainly used to combat the illegal drug trade, human trafficking, violent crime, and may also be used to support investigations by the FBI and other law enforcement agencies.
