Doug Hughes, the postman from Florida who landed his ultralight helicopter on the lawn of the US Capitol had a lot of balls, and I applaud him.

Senator Bernie Sanders on "The O'Reilly Factor". O'Reilly, as usual, acts like a douche bag and tries to use this interview as a platform to make a personal attack on Hillary Clinton. O'Reilly also tries to label Senator Sanders as a "socialist", which is a lie. Senator Sanders rightfully corrects him and describes himself as a democratic socialist. O'Reilly also uses this interview with Senator Sanders as a platform to attack the upcoming deal with Iran.

Every person with a disability that I know has gone through the same experience.  It's not unusual for a doctor to try to bully you if you are disabled.

I have had several friends who have EI/MCS (environmental illness/multiple
chemical sensitivity), and some of the treatment they had been subjected to
by the medical community is deplorable. They were all told, "it's all of
your head."

I myself, even though I have a very visible disability, have been bullied
by doctors. They always claim that whatever symptom I may be experiencing
it because of my disability, when I know damn well it isn't.

Even though the police know this man has been shot, they continue to rough him up.  They do not even attempt to administer any type of first-aid or quickly call an ambulance.  Disgraceful!

Senator Bernie Sanders, in an interview on Fox News Sunday, says he wonders if Hillary Clinton will be willing to take on the billionaire class, who are trying to run this country. Senator Sanders also points out the evils of the TPP and expresses his hope that Hillary Clinton will oppose this trade bill because it will cause a huge loss of jobs in the United States. Senator Sanders also defends his wishes for a single-payer health care system. The Senator also defends his proposal of reducing military spending by 15 percent.

Senator Bernie Sanders asks some very pertinent questions about Hillary Clinton's campaign and points out some issues that she should be focusing on? He asks the question, if Americans have the will and strength to fight billionaire class that is trying to take over this country.

But look at the detail. Bates is a 73 year old man who is a volunteer member of the department. He's a wealthy insurance executive who is also a major donor to the Sheriff's Department. He did serve for one year as an actual police officer - but that was in 1964-65! via I Shot Him. I'm Sorry..

Senator Bernie Sanders tells Ed Schultz what the average person's priorities are, as opposed to what most politicians are saying, especially the GOP. Senator Sanders also condemns some of his fellow senators who are members of the GOP, casually talking about engaging in a war with Iran.

Senator Bernie Sanders explains the position of the Republican candidates for president. He makes a very good remarks about how campaigns are financed. Senator Sanders also condemns the entire position of the Republican Party.

Introduction
I was born in a small town in Pennsylvania, called Bear Lake, on December 22 1955.  I graduated from Corry Area High School in 1973.  I attended Edinboro State College from 1977-1979.

I relocated to Berkeley, California in 1980, so I could live independently, something that was nearly impossible, in Pennsylvania.  I graduated from Berkeley City College in 2006 with two Associate Degrees, one in English and the other in Liberal Arts.
