There is an alternative to Hillary and her unseemly wealth and connections to Wall Street crooks.

Yeah, I agree. Faux News is BS.
 
It's time to come to terms that it is all lies and propaganda pretending to look like news. -mk   #NotRealNews

Sharing this here too.

This is an extremely well written article that makes it clear how much the NYT avoids talking about Bernie, and for that matter showing just how the Times fails to point out the utter lack of substance behind Hillary Clinton's new found populism.
 
Why Is the NY Times Basically Doing a Blackout on Bernie Sanders?

The New York Times' Sanders coverage is intellectually dishonest.

I've been saying this for a while, Obama had a similar advantage, and we now have G+ too.
 
Bernie Sanders' supporters are winning at social media

Bernie Sanders is picking up steam in the race for the White House -- driven in part by a populist, anti-Wall-Street message.

Unless you are among the Top 1% of American Incomes, I don't see why anyone wouldn't agree with Bernie Sanders. If I won the lottery today I would still support Sen. Sanders.
If you're at all curious about what's so appealing about Bernie, why so many people are fired up about this obscure socialist from Vermont, just watch him speaking truth to power:

If Hillary wins with her fake populism, we can count on almost nothing getting done. She has coopted Liz Warren and Bernie's rhetoric, but in the details that matter, she won't lift a finger to do anything her banker and corporate friends don't approve.

The banks won't be broken up, they won't be required to obey regulations, they will continue their illegal frauds without being prosecuted.

Electing Hillary is to go for more of the same as we have now. Her populism is utterly fake, she's just about as conservative as Ronald Reagan, with some minor improvements on social issues. Bernie himself is not attacking Hillary, he's got a twenty minute stump speech chock full of popular, hugely reasonable specifics to do about the massive inequality, global climate change, and much more.

Meanwhile Hillary has hot air. Bernie is going to rallies with thousands of supporters while she is mostly going to fundraisers with dozens of selected supporters - rich people, of course - rather than getting a message out. She doesn't take questions from the press and ropes them away from her.

She has nothing but platitudes on important issues. She has to keep the reporters from asking probing questions lest she say anything specific that pisses off her billionaire donors. She only intends to make small paltry changes that hardly address the huge problems.

His imaginary friend apparently is homophobic, racist, clueless, and evil. Sounds like schizophrenia to me.

Indeed. And it was enacted by a conservative government too (probably the only good thing they ever did).

Other than a great place to get a beer, the food is really corporate cheap and awful. The heavily bleached flour used on crusts tastes like paste, there's was too much rather low quality sausage in my calzone, not enough veggies, ricotta, or sauce. Salad was iceberg and fake croutons and cheap bottled dressing.

It's not very good, just over breaded salty fried chicken, fried in somewhat stale over heated oil. It had acceptable spices. The only tasty thing was the beans and it was a tiny cup. It was tasty enough to finish what i ordered but there are better and much more nutritious places to go, i won't try it again..

The food is ok, but the magaritas are insipidly sweet. There are only mexican beers on tap.

For the prices they charge the food is OK, but not that memorable. The rather soggy smoked turkey on my sandwich was marinated in something mildly sour, and barely tasted smoked or spicy.

The food is not so great, typical corporate fare. The salad was mostly tasteless iceberg lettuce, and the croutons were made in some huge factory somewhere, salty, rancid and laced with MSG. The dressing was also not made fresh, but it wasn't awful. The calzone came with a rather bland marinara. Their pizza dough tastes like paste, no flavor, the flour bleached so white. There was too much meat not enough sauce or cheese, especially none of the usual ricotta, so it was a gut bomb, not food. The only bright spot is the huge beer selection.

Service is friendly but somewhat awkward but the food is amazing good and inexpensive.

Some of the food is really great. Prices are reasonable for what you get. I've had some tasty lunches here, not too bad for a chain. Decent salads and / or vegetables accompany some of the meals. They also do pretty good with the happy hour specials, all of which are better than average (other than the garlic fries, anyway). I do agree that the garlic fries are soggy and perhaps more than a bit too much garlic. The regular fries are better. Their in-house beer is OK, but they avoid making anything with any character or hops. They do an OK, very pleasant Pilsner, but nothing else to really get that much excited about. There are much better places to get good brews which is rather odd for a "Brewery" restaurant.
