He's also growing campaign funds like a snowball rolling down hill. Here's hoping it's a long steep hill. :)

The thing I like most about Sanders is his stance against big money in politics. Big money has created laws that have effectively made bribery legal (allowing them to buy laws that benefit their interests).

Until we get big money out of politics, anything you want will fail if it stands in the way of making more money for a political donor.

For example, now that prisons are privately held high profit busesses, I would not be surprised to find that they have paid for some laws to carry a harsher punishment simply so more people will be behind bars longer (making them more money).

Until big money is removed, no real reforms will be allowed to happen.

Anyone who talks seriously about fixing this issue has my vote.

(Sharing the comment I made on the original post more widely ).

Hum, looks like I side with Bernie Sanders on 97% of issues in the 2016 Presidential election. I've been hearing about this guy and liked what I've heard. Guess I'll have to look at him a little more.

+Andy Guerriero​​ I think I've only got one that really seems to have failed on me. The others have either delivered or still seems to be making progress. These guys ( +inXile Entertainment​​ ) already delivered on one of their previous Kickstarters (Wasteland 2). And this one will already give you stuff as soon as the campaign finishes successfully (copes of some of their previous products). I think they're a safe bet. :)

If you ever find yourself in the Phoenix Sky Harbor airport, do yourself a favor and eat at "Matt's Big Breakfast". They are a downtown Phoenix favorite that you can now enjoy before your flight!

That's great to know Scott - there's always a line downtown so I still haven't eaten there!

Looks like Bernie is getting some traction!!
His promise to do all he can to get money out of politics is the best thing I've heard in forever. 
Bernie Sanders has been running for president for two months, but Wednesday night in Madison, Wisconsin, his long-shot campaign got real.

+Joshua Gabaldón​ I dont think their is any way Hillary would be his VP. Besides, with her Super PAC supporters, their is no way he would accept her. And Berine is too valuable to waste as a VP, IMHO.

Just saw Jurassic World for the second time this weekend! It far exceeded my expectations and the ending was the best possible. Very well done, IMHO!

I just backed this project. If you jump in early, "Anyone who backs The Bard’s Tale IV on Kickstarter in the first 48 hours of the campaign will receive a FREE copy of inXile’s Wasteland 2, or CD Projekt Red's The Witcher, or The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings."

To be exact, this offer ends on June 4th, 6am PST. To be eligible for the free copy you have to back at the $20 Reward Tier or above.

Ha! I did the same thing. Didn't know about it until they sent the, "Tell you friends that we've extended the free offer", email last night.

This looks like an AMAZING way to cook. Forget that heating up the house while cooking thing (especially during the summer) AND save energy at the same time. I may have to back this project.
Patrick Sherwin is raising funds for GoSun Grill: A Breakthrough Solar Oven that Cooks at Night on Kickstarter! Easier, faster and more delicious, this fuel-free cooker can bake, boil or fry a meal for eight, using only the Sun... day or night

Killing mosquitoes with frik'n LASERS!? Can't WAIT to get one of THESE!
 
This model of a laser bug zapper, which will soon be manufactured in the US, uses a photonic fence to track bugs within a specified area and kill them. The inventors hope it can be used in places like African hospitals to rid them of mosquitos that carry malaria and cause major issues. http://bit.ly/1bfh1Ac

I have a need to build and create. Currently, to build games that educate and tools for creating.
Introduction
I've been in the video game development industry since 1995. I've done work on both the technical and artistic sides of the creation process.

In recent years, my interests have pulled me toward the idea of using video games to teach. How cool would it be if games replaced (or heavily supplemented) text books in the class? If students are having fun, I believe they will play (study) longer and retain more.

How about games in the gym? I'd love to play a social game using my exercise bike (flying my peddle powered hang-glider over an enemy village).
Bragging rights
Played "Guitar Hero" on the San Francisco Giants score board!! (well, me and everyone else at the SEGA Christmas party that year).
Education

Decided to treat myself to a message at this location. It was the BEST experience I've had in a LONG time. Was so relaxed afterword that I almost couldn't remember my own name. Audrey is THAT good. Do yourself a favor and make an appointment. But do it early because she is normally booked up at least a full week out.

Got the two meat plate, brisket and ribs with jalapeño slaw and yams. The sides were pretty good but the meat was just so so, IMHO. The brisket texture was fine but didn't really have much of a smoked flavor and the ribs were definitely not falling off the bone (maybe even slightly under cooked). If the owners would care to experience some truly great BBQ, they should check out Little Miss BBQ in Phoenix AZ. I don't mean this as a put down, just as an example of some amazing meat artistry. People regularly wait 2 hours in line for lunch (they open at 11:00 but the line starts forming at about 10:15). Its THAT good (not even exaggerating).

Dropped in here for lunched. Nice flavor for all the dishes I tried. Loved the smoky flavor of one particular dish.

Amazing Small Batch Ice Cream! They are open to the public, but this not an ice cream parlor. This is where they make their many awesomely flavorful products. If stop by, and the owner, Doc, is around, he'll gladly give you a quick tour of his small but growing operation. Do yourself a favor and stop in sometime.
