Proof that Bernie has some sense:

RALPH NADER: Bernie Sanders does not answer my calls. Fifteen years, he’s never answered a telephone call, never replied to a letter, never replied to a meeting that I wanted to go down and see him.

+Sordatos Cáceres Some sense, in that he's avoiding Nader, who has no sense.

h/t to +Chris Veerabadran, who said:
"If US solves this issue there'll be no GOP."

He's right. The GOP requires cheating to win.
 
+Bernie Sanders 2016 has had enough of gerrymandering districts and voter suppression. So have we!

Correct. Do away with gerrymandering and their other tricks and you win. It is that simple.

It would be nice if these companies paid their way.
 
"Sen. Bernie Sanders fired back at 80 CEOs who wrote a letter lecturing America about deficit reduction by released a report detailing how 18 of these CEOs have wrecked the economy by evading taxes and outsourcing jobs. 80 CEO’s raised the ire of Sen. Sanders by publishing a letter in the Wall Street Journal urging America to act on the deficit, and reform Medicare and Medicaid.
Sen. Sanders responded to the lecture from America’s CEO’s by releasing a report that detailed how 18 of them have helped blow up the deficit and wreck the economy by outsourcing jobs and evading US taxes."

Being addicted is inherently bad, more so when you're addicted to something unhealthy for you.
 
WAI - Working As Intended. // "The development and marketing of e-cigarettes has the potential of hooking a whole new generation on nicotine," said Garry Sigman, MD, director of the Loyola University Health System Adolescent Medicine Program and professor in the Department of Pediatrics at Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine. "Nicotine is extremely addictive causing the body to crave more and more. This leads to other health issues including lung disease, heart disease, hypertension as well as effects on the nervous system." //
Though many think e-cigarettes are helping to reduce the number of smokers in the US, research is showing the opposite is true when it comes to teens. Experts recently released data showing that in just one year the number of middle and high school students using e-cigarettes has tripled.

First, cause no harm. Second, do some good.

If that's too much to ask of you, you're fired.
 
To be honest, I think that the intelligence system may as well be disbanded. What I learned from the Manning cables and Snowden files is that, basically, spy agencies have negative value. They cost money and create turn-key authoritarianism risks while delivering precisely nothing at all.

That was the great reveal: the curtain came up and there was no one and nothing on stage. At all.

In the history of the Cold War, in fact, the results of their operations, all other concerns aside, are known to be negative because all they did is provide additional surfaces for infiltration and take on deeply counterproductive projects.

Just as the mob flourished under prohibition and floundered without it...
 
The Colorado chapter of The Hell's Angels is poised to file for Bankruptcy.  The people most harmed by legalization are the gangsters who are losing a $4000 per pound market for growing what is basically a farm crop.

The creation of Fox News in 1996 was an event of deep, yet unappreciated, political and historical importance. For the first time, there was a news source available virtually everywhere in the United States, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, with a conservative tilt. Finally, conservatives did not have to seek out bits of news favorable to their point of view in liberal publications or in small magazines and newsletters. Like someone dying of thirst in the desert, conservatives drank heavily from the Fox waters. Soon, it became the dominant – and in many cases, virtually the only – major news source for millions of Americans. This has had profound political implications that are only starting to be appreciated. Indeed, it can almost be called self-brainwashing – many conservatives now refuse to even listen to any news or opinion not vetted through Fox, and to believe whatever appears on it as the gospel truth.

Just like they love "unborn children" but stop caring once they're born.

The unborn don't vote, but veterans and their families, do. And I hope they all remember and vote accordingly.

Talent is leaving Silicon Valley because of high real estate costs. Today, the median price for a home just exceeded $1 million.

It would be cruel to say "I told you so" when so many people have been injured by these things. So, uhm, I won't say anything. But I'll have a smug look on my face, so there.
 
Vibram will hugely dial back the health claims it's made for years about the benefits of running in its minimalist shoes, which are meant to mimic running barefoot.

+Steve S For an alternative viewpoint (wherein the possible negative effects of earth shoes and similar shows are discussed intelligently), here's this:

http://www.rodalenews.com/wellness-shoes

The points made in that brief article are more caveats and suggestions rather that a suggestion that the wellness claims are  unfounded. Earth shoes were more problematic for women than men (among other things).

This is old news.
 
Things are starting to slowly look up. Now if we could just get them all to vote, what a difference we could make!
For the first time since polling began in 1999, Gallup found that there are more social liberals in the United States than social conservatives.

Proud second-rate thinker.
Introduction
  1. If what I say is unclear, try taking it at face value. I tend to be blunt.
  2. If it still makes no sense, consider that I have a dry, sometimes dark, sense of humor.
  3. Maybe you're not the one who's supposed to understand.
I speak only for myself, not anyone else. I do not seek to insult, but I recognize that it's sometimes a foreseeable consequence, and I'm ok with that.

Some of my posts are political. You are free to respond, even if you disagree, but I have zero tolerance for bigots. Not only will I block you, I will report you for violating the ToS.
