The only political category where I disagree (not entirely) with Bernie. He's still got my vote because his argument is sound and based in reality.
 
"So obviously, we need strong sensible gun control, and I will support it," Sanders told Greene. "But some people think it's going to solve all of our problems, and it's not. You know what, we have a crisis in the capability of addressing mental health illness in this country. When people are hurting and are prepared to do something terrible, we need to do something immediately. We don't have that and we should have that."
"I think that urban America has got to respect what rural America is about, where 99 percent of the people in my state who hunt are law-abiding people," the 2016 hopeful told NPR's David Greene.

Well said, +Tim Elkins. #Sanders2016  
 
FTA: “I will be talking about family values, but not the family values that my Republican colleagues talk about, which for them means that a woman cannot have the right to control her own body or that gay people should not have the right to get married or that women should not have access to contraception. That is what their concept of family values are about. That’s not my concept,” Sanders said at the breakfast, sponsored by the Christian Science Monitor Breakfast in downtown D.C.

Makes you wonder what "family values" really means to the GOP. As Sanders points out, it's not paid maternity leave, paid sick time, paid vacation, living wages, pensions, Social Security, etc. It does endorse discrimination against others based on your religion, though.

Bernie Sanders wants Democrats to take back the phrase "family values" from Republicans by expanding benefits for American workers.

Huh ... interesting.
 
On June 11, Twitter announced they would remove the 140 character limit for direct messages. The change does not impact public tweets.

Mary was very helpful and thorough in making sure I had everything I needed. She and Nikki run an efficient operation at the facility and the storage space that I selected online turned out to be perfect for my needs. I highly recommend their site and services.
