Why did the correction department and the justice department fail Blessie?
Does the GPS monitoring just mean that they can check where the person has been AFTER the facts? Even when you have a dangerous person like Robertson, who was preying on kids? Is it justified for Correction/Justice washing their hands?
And they don’t care if their GMO position kills a million third-world children every year because of vitamin A deficiencies
Golden Rice is a GMO product that 'produces' Vitamin A. The patent is held by Syngenta, who has promised not to use it for commercial purposes. Monsanto is gunning for Syngenta. Do you think that they will keep Syngenta's promises. Yeah right.
Hillary will kill many more people due to her ties with many 'Frankenstein' companies.

He wants them to look innocent (i.e. like a virgin)
He provides himself with the perfect excuse: You know they're whores

From fighting segregation to standing against police violence.
Over the past few months, one lingering attack on Bernie Sanders' candidacy for the Democratic nomination is his supposed indifference to racial justice and civil rights issues.
But the truth is, Sanders has a 50-year history of standing up for civil and minority rights, as he told the attendants of Netroots Nation after he was interrupted by Black Lives Matter protesters. Of course, it's understandable that they want to bring attention to the movement. Killings of people from Ferguson to New York City to Los Angeles to Atlanta have finally brought important issues like police brutality, systemic racism, mass incarceration and militarization of the police into the center of national dialogue.
* The major difference between Bernie Sanders and the other presidential candidates is that he provides more than just lip service to the cause of racial inequality. Bernie Sanders has taken an active role in being an advocate for racial injustice. He has attended protest, given speeches and most importantly he has introduced legislation to end racial discrimination. The fight is far from over and Bernie hasn't indicated that he is going to slow down in his fight for justice. During this important struggle it's important to remember that we must stick together. United we are much stronger and are able gain more traction when we stand together.
Here is a list of actions that Bernie Sanders has taken to end racial inequality. Click on the link for a more comprehensive look at his accomplishments.
1. Raising Money For Korean Orphans: raising scholarship funds for Korean war orphans
2. Being Arrested For Desegregation: As a student at the University of Chicago, Sanders was active in both the Congress on Racial Equality (CORE) and the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC). In 1962, he was arrested for protesting segregation in public schools in Chicago; the police came to call him an outside agitator, as he went around putting up flyers around the city detailing police brutality.
3. Marching In March On Washington:Sanders joined the mega-rally called by the leaders of the civil rights movement, a formative event of his youth
4. Calling For Full Gay Equality: he called for abolishing all laws related to discrimination against homosexuality.
5. Standing Up For Victims Of U.S. Imperialism In Latin America: In 1985, he traveled to Nicaragua to condemn the war on people there.
6. Condemned And Opposed Welfare Reform and Dog Whistle Politics: Sanders not only voted against this policy change, but wrote eloquently against the dog whistle politics used to sell it, saying, “The crown jewel of the Republican agenda is their so-called welfare reform proposal. The bill, which combines an assault on the poor, women and children, minorities, and immigrants is the grand slam of scapegoating legislation, and appeals to the frustrations and ignorance of the American people along a wide spectrum of prejudices.”
7. Vocally Condemned and Opposed Death Penalty and Prisons His Entire Political Career: Sanders has long been a critic of “tough on crime” policies. Here he is in 1991 condemning a crime bill for promoting “state murder” through expansion of the death penalty:
“My friends, we have the highest percentage of people in jail per capita of any nation on earth....What do we have to do, put half the country behind bars? Mister Speaker, instead of talking about punishment and vengeance, let us talk about the real issue. How do we get to the root causes of crime? How do we stop crime? … I've got a problem with a president and Congress that allows five million people to go hungry, two million people to sleep out on the street, cities to become breeding grounds for drugs and violence. And they say we're getting tough on crime. If you want to get tough on crime, let's deal with the causes of crime. Let's demand that every man, woman, and child in this country have a decent opportunity and a decent standard of living. Let's not keep putting more people into jail and disproportionately punishing blacks.”
8. Voted Against Cutting Off Prisoners From Federal Education Funds: Only a handful of members of Congress voted against the legislation, and almost all of them were members of the Black Caucus. Sanders was one of the few white members who opposed this effort.
9. Took IMF To Task For Oppressing Developing World Workers: In a 1998 committee hearing, Sanders took Clinton administration official Robert Rubin to task for not enforcing a provision to protect the rights of workers in Indonesia. “Tell the world now that no more IMF money goes to that country, goes to [dictator] Suharto!” he thundered to Rubin, who later went on to be the chief architect of policies that led us to the Great Recession. “The IMF historically does not have a good record in terms of the poor people of various countries,” he noted, standing up for the poorest black and brown people on the planet, tackling an institution few in Congress dare to criticize.
10. Achieved High Ratings From Leading Civil Rights Organizations: A frequent critique of Sanders is that he is from a very white state. While this is true, he certainly has not ignored issues that matter to people of color. In 2002, he achieved a 93 percent rating from the ACLU and a 97% rating by the NAACP in 2006.
11. Voted Against the PATRIOT Act: The law has been used to violate the rights of Arab and Muslim Americans, but few know how extensively it has been used in the drug war; from 2009 to 2010, the law was invoked for 3,034 narcotics cases and only 37 terrorism case
12. Opposed Both Iraq Wars on Moral Grounds: Sanders went further, saying that the “death and destruction caused” would “not be forgotten by the poor people of the Third World.”
13. Traveled to Costa Rica to Defend Exploited Workers: In Costa Rica to help organize workers opposing the Central American Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA). While many critics of trade agreements do so on the grounds that Americans deserve jobs that could be lost to foreign countries, Sanders instead practices a form of solidarity politics, saying that workers in both countries are being exploited by corporations and so we must organize workers in both countries.
14. Endorsed Jesse Jackson, Spoke Up For Palestinians: In 1988, Jesse Jackson was the first competitive black candidate for the Democratic nomination for the presidency. He came under fierce attack for his advocacy of Palestinian statehood. Sanders came to his aid, organizing Vermonters and winning the state for Jackson.
15. Strongly Condemned Police Violence Over the Past Year: he has repeatedly condemned police violence.
16. Embraced Immigrants When Hillary Clinton Refused To Talk To Them: In 2014, young immigration activists repeatedly tried to talk to Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton to ask her about executive action. While Clinton did not talk to them, Bernie Sanders was not only willing to talk, but agreed with their call for executive action.
17. Defended Voting Rights Against Voter Suppression Efforts: Sanders earned the endorsement of radical rapper Killer Mike by his leadership on defending the Voter Rights Act and calling for expanding voting rights.
18. Fought Against Employment Discrimination: Sanders was a strong supporter of legislation to end workplace discrimination against LGBT Americans.
19. Called For End to War On Drugs, For-Profit Prisons and Migrant Detention Quotas: Sanders supports decriminalizing marijuana, and believes the war on drugs to be a failure. Additionally, he has vowed to end for-profit prisons and immigrant detention quotas.
20. Put Out Detailed Plan to End Economic Crisis in Minority Communities: Poverty and racial discrimination are not mutually exclusive issues. In fact the issues are very closely related. Racially motivated economic discrimination perpetuates a cycle of poverty and despair. Bernie Sanders wants to raise the quality of living for all people. He wants to end racial discrimination that keeps poor minority families trapped in a cycle of poverty.
This validates Sanders' strategy of looking to the economy as the top concern of minority communities. He has put out a detailed strategy to target unemployment across America and particularly to attack Hispanic and black youth unemployment, which he introduced in August 2014, long before he announced for president.
But much of the criticism of Sanders seems more rooted in who he is — an old white guy from Vermont — than what he has done. If anything, the fact that he has done so much for civil and minority rights despite the fact that his constituency is not one that would naturally demand it speaks to his character and wide empathy that isn't shared by many politicians.
