#DebateWithBernie Be part of the discussion, text DEBATE to 82623

..I just got this text>>Watch Bernie in the 1st Democratic debate at 8:30 PM ET on CNN.

Timing of the Democratic Debate

I am a bit upset that they chose this day for the 1st democratic debate and the fact that there are only four debates.

There is a baseball game that will take away many potential viewers. It seems like other things have also appeared in my emails like Webinars during the same time period. Who are these people that are running the democratic debates and make their rules? Are they secretly Republicans? It almost seems like it. They should be FIRED IMMEDIATELY!

Hillary keeps STEALING Bernie's ideas!!!

I've been saying this for awhile. HILLARY is STEALING Bernies ideas.

Here is an article now about just that! I knew I was right!

This makes me dislike here even MORE!

Leave A TIP for Bernie!

I left a $15 tip (on a $40 dollar bill) at a restaurant today.

On the check, I wrote - "Bernie Sanders supports a $15/hour minimum wage. I do too!! Feel the Bern, 2016!!"

As I was walking out, I could see the young, college-aged waitress showing the tip to her co-workers! They were all really jazzed!!

That was fun!! Let's make this "a thing!"

Red State Strategy?

Is it the plan of Red States to keep their taxes low and then depend on Federal money to repair them? Or just hypocrisy?

What if they gave a debate, and nobody came?

Many registered Democrats are, understandably, somewhat pretrurbed by the paucity of "official" Democratic Presidential debates this election cycle. Even more disturbing was the decision by the party chair, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, that any candidate who participates in an UN-official debate would be prohibited from participating in any of the party's official debates.

Higher Medical Costs

Thanks, Mr. Pres. for working so hard for the TPP Agreement that will raise pharmaceutical costs worldwide:

Doctors Without Borders claims the TPP will “go down in history as the worst trade agreement for access to medicines in developing countries.” [1] That’s because the TPP will extend patent protection for brand-name drugs, thereby preventing similar generic drugs (which are far less costly) from entering the market. This will drive up the prices.

Could this actually happen HERE in the U.S.?

I was stunned to read about Slavadoran women jailed because they lost their babies before giving birth. THIS IS INSANITY! This is a prime example of just how far this nonsense can go.

How Bernie Sanders is like FDR

I just had to post this link! The video on this page tells it all!

We are still fighting the same battles!

The US has a war culture which drives many of our social problems

There have been studies of warrior cultures (by anthropologists, social scientists) showing that they tend to be male-dominated, aggressive, confrontational, highly stratified in terms of class, and repressive toward women. I think that some of the Republican focus on trying to get rid of Planned Parenthood is rooted in this kind of mindset. In antiquity (say experts) men regarded women as dangerous because they were capable of a kind of "magic" - the ability to bring forth new life from within themselves.

Balance the Budget

The largest 500 U.S. companies would owe an estimated $620 billion in U.S. taxes were it not for the more than $2.1 trillion in offshore cash that most of the firms hold in foreign tax havens, according to a study released Tuesday.

“Congress has created loopholes in our tax code that allow offshore tax avoidance, which forces ordinary Americans to make up the difference,” the report said.

Why the Kochs Really Embraced Criminal Justice Reform...

It looks like the Koch brothers have scammed us once again.

When news first came out that Charles and David Koch -- the Koch brothers -- were supporting criminal justice reform efforts in Congress, many of us thought, "Wow, they're actually doing something good for once."

And for good reason, too.
