Bernie Sanders breaks it down

I so wish Bernie Sanders would have won the presidential election of 2016.  We saw him in Sept. in Milwaukee.  I was amazed at the turn out, and how many young people were there.  He makes sense, and really breaks down Trump’s promises he made during the campaign.  A true American.

Sad in America

Lucky Otter nails it exactly how many of us here in the United States are feeling right now. We are scared. I’ve never been this scared , and I’m 58 and have seen a lot of bad things in my life.  I’ve taken my existence in the U.S. for granted , never did I think I would see someone like this in power.

http://www.yahoo.com/news/what-just-happened-with-carrier-is-crazy-223106708.html And now, Trump has persuaded Carrier to keep at least half of the 2,000 jobs it planned to outsource in Indiana, a remarkable instance of federal arm-twisting aimed at a single corporation… Everyone’s talking about how Trump saved 1,000 jobs, yet no one wants to mention the other 1,000 jobs that are going to […]

So NBC’s Brian Williams got suspended for six months without pay.

I  have to say I like Brian Williams, but did he really think he could lie about events that never happened? Come on, we all lie about stuff, but most of us are not making a boatload of money to deliver the national news.

Maybe we can get NBC to start suspending all of these politicians that lie on a regular basis. Now that would be sweet.
