What's Next for Bernie's Revolution

Recommended Posts

You say you got a real solution
Well, you know
We'd all love to see the plan
You ask me for a contribution
Well, you know
We're doing what we can
But if you want money for people with minds that hate
All I can tell is brother you have to wait
Don't you know it's gonna be
All right, all right, all right
You say you'll change the constitution
Well, you know
We all want to change your head
You tell me it's the institution
Well, you know
You better free you mind instead
But if you go carrying pictures of chairman Mao
You ain't going to make it with anyone anyhow
Don't you know it's gonna be
All right, all right, all right
All right, all right, all right
All right, all right, all right
All right, all right

This is AWESOME. Bernie is going to be a thorn in Trump's side from the start. Funny stuff:

 

A giant tweet. :lol:

 

 

Sen. Bernie Sanders haunted Donald Trump and Republicans with the ghost of Twitter past on Wednesday.

The Vermont senator printed an oversized tweet of Trump's to use as a visual aid during the Senate's debate over the future of Obamacare, also known as the Affordable Care Act. The president-elect's tweet from May 2015 claimed that he was the only Republican candidate "to state there will be no cuts to Social Security, Medicare & Medicaid."

Yeah. Good stuff. In Trump's face.

 

Trump has walked back most campaign promises already. Reneging on promises to prosecute Hillary or build The Wall are excellent. But abandoning promises to keep Social Security and Medicare as they are, would be disastrous. It's significant that Democratic lawmakers are already suspicious he will break those promises too.

Yes, but I don't want medicare and Social Security kept as they are. I want them improved. Medicare should be expanded for everyone. They should also get rid of parts B, C, and D by covering everything. Social Security benefits should be doubled and the age lowered to 60. ( I guess I don't agree with the best things Trump has to say.)

Medicare, Social Security, and health-care generally would have been improved under Hillary Clinton, along with a myriad of other important social and economic issues.

 

Instead, we've got Trump and the nation will suffer.

I agree with you about what SHOULD be done. But realistically, the best we can hope for in a Trump administration with both houses Republican dominated, is to hold the line. Evidently that's what Bernie thinks too because his visual aid reminds Trump that he promised there would be no cuts to SS, Medicaid and Medicare. He did not call on Trump to expand these programs. We will have to wait 4 years, at the very least, for the social safety net to expand again.

Bernie also said a $10 an hour minimum wage under Trump would be awesome when he excoriated HRC as a plutocrat when she initially proposed $12.

 

Bernie is a politician of cynical convenience. We'd have been light years ahead with HRC.

The burning question now, is how to mount an effective resistance against a Republican dominated Washington.

The "deep end" is a matter of perspective. Only criticism of one candidate seems to not bring censure, red-dots, and threats.

 

Another thing SpyCar: At the risk of speaking for others:-- IMO, members are not marking you down because of the political content of your posts but because of the over-the-top raging and harsh language. No one else in this room comes remotely close.

 

Speaking on my part, that's it exactly.

 

OK, I'm calling out SpyCar on this one!!!! Dude, I just checked my reputation "ups" and "downs" and noticed that you went out to my reputation and "downed" EVERY SINGLE POST in the first two and a half pages of my posting history. Many of the posts had content that you and I typically agree on.

 

Every. Single. Post.

 

What the hell? :huh: If you don't like the content of one of my posts, feel free to "down" it. I don't give a rat's ass. However to go out and "down" every single post, without exception, is not only over-the-top, but all sorts of vengeful and childish.

I get that all the time in the NHB section. I wear mine as a badge of honor. When I hit one of them a bit too hard they whine out with the rep button lol

 

I come in here to clean some of "it" off a bit :)

Day 4 and Trump is swimming backwards already. The GOP wants to steal his lunch and he wants to steal theirs..SO!! meanwhile the Dems are hot on both of their tails nipping and just generally creating discontent..Keep them spinning in many directions until their heads pop off. WE can do this..WE just need to hit hard where we actually live and start now.

You can't throw red dots at me (an action you started) and not expect retaliation.

 

You want to live my the sword, then die by the sword. Otherwise, respect free speech and differences of opinion.

 

As it is your actions that are childish, vengeful, and you are the initiator of this behavior (not me).

 

Bill

It shouldn't be happening in the LO Rm.

 

Correct. There is a chilling and hostile environment for liberals in this forum that is untoward,

So because I "downed" two or three of your posts (which I felt were posted solely to troll me on the topic of Bernie), you feel ENTITLED to go out and "down" MULTIPLE PAGES of my posts (regardless of their content) to "retaliate?" :huh: Seriously?

I guess one needs to follow the socialist party line around her or one gets denounced.

 

Same old tactics of the left. And why leftists are not liberals.
