Hillary keeps it vapid and absolutely nothing about what she wants to do other than platitudes. It's all about her and her life story, of course leaving off the part about selling out to the plutocrats.

Someone crunching some numbers that very much sum up how I've felt about this. Bernie's chances are way better than the infuriatingly smug Hillary supporters currently understand.

Bernie in the Media  - 
 
I've seen almost but not quite a sea change in how Bernie is being perceived by the media. He's now up to the level of Eugene McCarthy, rather than someone that is supported by a tiny minority of democrats.

There is plenty of time left to get some contagious enthusiasm going, because Bernie isn't saying things that are crazy at all. He is way more mainstream than what people yet realize.

We have the front runner here, we just need people to show this to Hillary supporters and they might just get that her bland, conservative campaign lacks substance. She is running to be President.

Bernie is running for the middle class.
 
This is one of the speeches that got me on the Bernie wagon years ago. Spread it around! Its powerful stuff...

▶ 2016 Elections  - 
 
At the rate things have been going, Bernie will win the nomination and the whole election. He has much better chances than the coldly calculating Hillary, who is way too conservative.

Remember, she voted for the goddamn war so she has no way to use that against whichever crazed Republican gets the nomination. She is not the safe nominee at all. If she wins it is MORE likely that the Republicans win. If she wins, the election will be a big snooze.

She also has exactly none of Bill's charisma. Bernie isn't very charismatic himself, but he has intellectually consistent and deeply intelligent policies that almost everyone agrees with if we can do an end run around the oligarchs.

Hillary has Wall Street oligarchs on her side, which makes me all the more determined to see her lose.

And we really can make an end run around the evil plutocrats. The social media are low cost and posting online video costs a small percentage of TV ads. We are here making posts and thousands of others are too. #FeelTheBern

+Geoffrey Swenson And take me with you! 😊

I think Hilary is trying to distance herself from DADT and DOMA as much as possible. But as I've mentioned on other posts, as much as I'd love to have a woman president, Clinton is not the right one especially at this point in time.

So...make sure you're registered as a Dem so we can get Bernie on the ticket!

Framing the Issues  - 
 
How does Bernie win?

Bernie Sanders wins all the solid blue states and only has to pick up a couple of battleground states. Young people vote for him in droves. He may surprise you in the south.

We win because the internet is a way around expensive media ads. We win because he's actually for something that matters to people instead of Hillary's muddled incoherent yet totally focus grouped BS.

His pragmatic progressive positions on the issues win because they are intellectually robust, the BS on Faux News doesn't fool as many people as it used to.

We win because you can find quotes from twenty years ago with Bernie saying things that still resonate with deep truth today.

He wins because he hasn't sold out to anyone. We are all very appreciative of Vermont voters that have elected and reelected him to increasingly more powerful political roles.

It's just more of the same. I think we do our part right here on social media getting people connected. Social media is going to be a big driver of his success. It costs Bernie almost nothing, but we get the word out and even links to video and speeches and articles, just like we are doing.

Democrats are tired of voting for candidates that refuse to deal with issues that matter to them. Hillary is such a terrible candidate, just like eight years ago.

She''s got a lot of lukewarm offerings. She's definitely more progressive than any of the republicans. But there is nothing there to get you excited. It's all small changes that leave you wanting way more.

She also isn't campaigning. She's not talking to the press or inviting anyone other than special small groups to see her speak. She's just as boring as she was eight years ago.

But the very things that should be front and center, nothing. Is she even going to break up the banks? No. Her chief of staff is a corrupt Monsanto lobbyist. You can bet that will cause more than a few distortions of policy. Nothing about global warming.

Her foreign policies are scary right wing. Not quite as bad as Ted Cruz, but the neocons that pushed for the war were wrong then and she still listens to them. She believes in their warmongering BS.

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.
