The life and times of Bernie Sanders

If some noted Republican had a history such as is described in that article, the GOP would characterize him/her as a person who rose courageously from failures to achieve great success.  He/she would likely be compared to Abraham Lincoln. Bernie has the highest approval of the citizenry of his state of any other member of the Senate, consistently well over 80 percent.  Go peddle your complaints to them.

Never did nothing, useless as **** on a boar hog, crazy as a ****house rat, no qualifications except his promise to "give them stuff", perfect demoslop candidate, just what they love. If he was a muslim they would die from the ecstasy they felt and the tingles up and down their legs.

If governance  were to become just imperial pen-n'-phone pronouncements as Obama wants, I would fear Sanders more than Hillary. As it stands, Congress would never pass laws far left as Sanders wants as long as there are 40+ Republican Senators. I suspect that Sanders would be the president with the most overturned vetoes because the crony capitalists who own the dems would use their pens and phones.

First a mayor, then a congressman and now, a senator, Bernie has no experience outside of government. 

His transaction tax on stock trades will drive more and more business to the City in London, which is now the largest trading body, thanks to Obama.

The public and private unions will have a conniption fit when they realize the tax will be on their pension and life insurance funds. Same for those with 401(k)s and other investments for their retirement. Same for the insurance companies that handle life insurance, home and car insurance and annuities.

Bernie will get a torch light parade  -- better watch out it'll lead to a stake and piled up kindling.

 

Bernie-isms

Last night, ol Bern said the US has more Latinos and Blacks incarcerated than China.

[That's because China has a wall.  Hecho en Mexico.]

He also said there are more Blacks in prison because . . . while they are in prison they are not being prepared for a life outside prison so they hang out on street corners and that leads to recidivism.

Or something like that.

Two of the reasons more blacks are in prison are the longer sentences for crack cocaine, than regular cocaine and the three strikes and you're out sentences for repeat felons.  Both implemented during the Clinton administration.

 

===================

One of his first jobs was registering people for food stamps, and it was all downhill from there.

Sanders took his first bride to live in a maple sugar shack with a dirt floor, and she soon left him. Penniless, he went on unemployment. Then he had a child out of wedlock. Desperate, he tried carpentry but could barely sink a nail. “He was a shi**y carpenter,” a friend told Politico Magazine. “His carpentry was not going to support him, and didn’t.”

Then he tried his hand freelancing for leftist rags, writing about “*********ion and rape” and other crudities for $50 a story. He drove around in a rusted-out, Bondo-covered VW bug with no working windshield wipers. Friends said he was “always poor” and his “electricity was turned off a lot.” They described him as a slob who kept a messy apartment — and this is what his friends had to say about him.

The only thing he was good at was talking … non-stop … about socialism and how the rich were ripping everybody off. “The whole quality of life in America is based on greed,” the bitter lay about said. “I believe in the redistribution of wealth in this nation.”

So he tried politics, starting his own socialist party. Four times he ran for Vermont public office, and four times he lost — badly. He never attracted more than single-digit support — even in the People’s Republic of Vermont. In his 1971 bid for U.S. Senate, the local press said the 30-year-old “Sanders describes himself as a carpenter who has worked with ‘disturbed children.’ ” In other words, a real winner.

He finally wormed his way into the Senate in 2006, where he still ranks as one of the poorest members of Congress. Save for a municipal pension, Sanders lists no assets in his name.

Well, at least he hasn’t pulled a Clinton and enriched himself via influence-peddling. But it is quite clear that envy is a deep part of his psychology. That has become the source of focus in his life, something that obviously was lacking until he got into politics.

Can a man who was unable to earn a decent living, unable to keep himself in orderly environment, without political office really be the chief executive of the United States Government?
