Time for Bernie

Photo courtesy of Jenni Siri

"The major issue is how do we create an economy that works for all of our people rather than a small number of billionaires, and the second issue directly related is the fact that as a result of the disastrous Supreme Court decision on Citizens United, we now have a political situation where billionaires are literally able to buy elections and candidates. Let’s not kid ourselves. That is the reality right now."

Bernie Sanders

Consider this: The last Vermonter to live in the White House was Calvin Coolidge. He left office on March 4, 1929. There hasn't been another one since. It's about time we elect another resident of the Green Mountain State to the presidency. This time, though, let's be bold and send the anti-Coolidge to Washington! I've got just the guy for the job, too!

Finally! An honest-to-goodness, capital "P" Progressive to prove to the rest of the world that Hillary Clinton is not a foregone conclusion - and that maybe the Democrats have a little more imagination than seemed to be the case only forty-eight hours ago.

Most Americans have no idea who Bernie Sanders is. That is bound to change in the next month or so.  Bernie is a "public servant", a term that has been perverted over the years: Chuck Schumer and Mitch McConnell are not - and never have been - "public servants" Bernie is the real thing. For a third of a century, first as the mayor of Burlington, Vermont, then as a congressman, then as a senator, Bernie's agenda has been The People's agenda. He is the first candidate since Harry Truman who is not at all beholden to the interests of corporate America. His announced intentions to seek the presidency is a rare stroke of jolly good luck for all of us.

A not very telegenic Brooklyn-born Jew as the nominee of the Democratic party? I know that the Republicans must be salivating at the very idea. They shouldn't. For every day that goes by, it's increasingly apparent to people that "the party of Abraham Lincoln" has devolved into an organized criminal enterprise. He'll never gain much ground with the folks in the deep south, but the rest of the country should not be written off. All you need to do is listen to what the man has to say, and what he stands for. Bernie has called for a political revolution in America. Finally, a politician with the courage to say it! I think we might very well find ourselves at the dawn of a new era of good old days. Wouldn't THAT be cool!

"What Wall Street and credit and companies are doing is really not much different from what gangsters and loan sharks do, who make predatory loans. While the bankers wear three-piece suits and don't break the knee caps of those who can't pay back, they still are destroying people's lives."

Hillary & Elizabeth
To those of you who might admonish me with the words, "But Degan, it's time for a woman to serve!" I would only respond by saying that I agree; we're long overdue for a woman chief-executive - two centuries overdue to be exact - but not Hillary Clinton. I was hoping that Elizabeth Warren might throw her hat into the ring but apparently that's not going to happen. She says she's not interested and she means it. Other than Bernie and Sherrod Brown of Ohio (and maybe one or two others) she's the only senator who has stood up (and stood out) as a true, unapologetic "LIBERAL", never trying to flee from the term the GOP has managed to turn into an expletive during the last three decades. I would have happily supported a Warren candidacy - giddily even! Since that's never going to happen (at least not in 2016) we need to confront the grim reality that a Hillary candidacy has the very real potential to self-destruct, or that a second Clinton administration within the confines of a single generation could blowup in our faces. As I've said too many times to count, with Democrats like her, who the hell needs Republicans? Seriously.

"Balancing the budget on the backs of the elderly, the sick, the children and the poor - is not only immoral, it is bad economic policy. It is something that must be vigorously opposed. "

Although not a Democrat (his independence being all the more reason to admire him) Bernie Sanders, more than any other Democrat in Washington today, has not forgotten the political legacy that has been bequeathed to generations of progressives by Franklin Delano Roosevelt's New Deal. Should registered Democrats across the country be naive enough to hand the nomination to Hillary Clinton, we'll have no other choice than to cast our ballots for her on Election Day 2016, she being the lesser of two very distinct evils. The only bright spot, as far as I'm concerned, is the undeniable fact that as unpalatable as she is as a candidate, she is so much preferable to anything the Republicans are bound to puke up that a vote for her would be the only choice of anyone entering the voting booth with a bare grasp of the issues facing America today. I'll tell you this, though: If I'm forced to make that choice, I'll be holding my nose.

 "Let us wage a moral and political war against the billionaires and corporate leaders, on Wall Street and everywhere, whose policies are destroying America."

They'll accuse Bernie of waging class warfare. That's exactly what he's doing - and he ain't taking any prisoners, pardner.

It can't be emphasized enough that we should not make the mistake of assuming that a somewhat  gruff, Jewish guy is unelectable. That's what people were thinking (if not saying out loud) eight years ago when a black politician from Chicago - NOT KENYA! - announced his candidacy for the presidency of the United States. It's a different world than the one our parents grew up in. This country very soon will no longer be run by elderly white Protestant guys with beer bellies and bad breath. Bernie Sanders' time has come. Join me while we make some history.

 "Of course the Republicans have long wanted to privatize Social security and destroy it. But Social Security has been the most valuable social program in the history of the United States."

Yeah, it's time for Bernie alright. High time.

Gail Collins has an excellent piece in this morning's New York Times on the candidacy of Bernie Sanders:

Bernie Sanders Yells His Mind

As always, she's right on target and as witty as they come.


George Harrison's 1978 LP, which was simply called "George Harrison", is not widely remembered today; none of the tracks on it come easily to mind for most people - not even a lot of fanatics of the Fabs. Although critically well received, it didn't sell particularly well at the time of its release. A year later you could pick it up in the cut-out bin for under two bucks. I've never been able to understand this because, for my money anyway, it's his best record - better than All Things Must Pass even. In fact, it's his masterpiece. Every track on it is an absolute gem. Here's a link to listen to it in its entirety:

One more Bernie quote for the road:

"If you ask me my view on the environment, on women's rights, on gay rights - I am a liberal. I don't have a problem with that at all. Some of my best friends are liberal."

Gotta love the dude. Ya just gotta!

Finally! announced candidate not beholden to multinational corporate interests! What a welcome and refreshing difference.

If Bernie Sanders is on the ballot in my state, he'll get my vote. Hell!...even if he isn't on the ballot, I'll write him in.

I hope when Bernie becomes President he addresses AmeiKa's Education problem.

The problem with American education in general, and large urban school districts in particular, isn’t lack of funding.

It’s lack of accountability and transparency, lack of competition and choice, lack of results and high standards.

Look at Freddie Gray's Baltimore school system which ranked second among the nation’s 100 largest school districts in how much it spent per pupil in fiscal year 2011. Baltimore’s $15,483 per-pupil expenditure was second to New York City’s $19,770.

We obsess on inputs and ignore outputs.

What often happens, in fact, is the worst school districts often get the most money based on the flawed premise that the reason the schools are failing is lack of funding.

We’re spending an enormous amount of money on a system that isn’t producing, and it’s liberal interest groups (e.g., education unions) and the Democratic Party that are ferocious opponents of the kind of reforms that would improve American education.

What exactly are the compelling public policy and moral arguments for opposing school choice for kids in the worst schools in America? There are none.

The opposition is based on wanting to maintain and increase political power. If it’s the kids who suffer, so be it.

Progressivism has an agenda to achieve, after all. Sometimes you need to break eggs to make an omelet.

So Perry doesn't get that the examiner in Baltimore already ruled the death a HOMICIDE.

Also, it was found that the arrest was not legit since the "switchblade" he was carrying wasn't a switchblade and the length of the blade was completely legal.

As for Sanders, I like him a lot, but his age scares me a bit, and I wonder who funds his campaign if he doesn't take money from corporate interests?

Hey Perry, how about you explain to us how anyone could sever their own spine?

At 2:50 PM, Blogger Mozart1220 said...

Oh, and Perry, he wasn't arrested for selling drugs, and had none on him at the time of his arrest. He was arrested for carrying an illegal switchblade, but he didn't have one of those either.

Oh, Tom. For the first time in decades I have positive vibes going through me. At last, a candidate that we do not have to ask a dozen commentators what the guy meant. If Bernie says it, he means it; we don't have to go through a speech he makes and wonder what the hell he is talking about.
I was not going to vote next year if Hillary was going to be the only DINO running. I do not trust her. She's so far in bed with Wall Street (hell, she has to have someone to love) that she might as well be a Koch sister.
Yes, I would LOVE to see a woman running for president, but Warren isn't going to run. My dream ticket was Bernie/Warren or Warren/Bernie but she's not running and she's doing that for a good reason. What would be so bad about Bernie for POTUS and Warren for VPOTUS? I'd love to see something like that.
Bernie is only a year younger than me, I know how much strength that someone in their 70s can have. With the exception of having a broken back, I still feel like a kid but with an adult's experience.
We know that the antisemites are going to have a field day with Bernie's religion, but he is the ONLY candidate who doesn't have baggage that we know about.
Tom, I'm going to stick my neck out, but since you have an intelligent bunch out there,I'm going to ask you to give me a call @ 817-521-2329 if you get a chance and would care to talk with another revolutionist.
I tell people "I'm revolting," but I do take a shower every day that I can stand.

Lonesome Dove (Boy Troll)

White cops killing unarmed Black men has become the new normal

"Class warfare" (The rich persecuting and stealing from the poor) Has been normal for a long time, when conservatives are in power

Conservatives, using entities like Fox News and AM radio have been trying t
divide and conquer" for decades. (See Obama's speech about COMMUNITY being spun into an attack on business)

The "law" abusing it's power has always been normal

Confronting authority being fine for rich white people, (See Clive Bundy) but a capital crime for poor Black people was always normal

Conservatives making up their own "facts" and lying (See Fox news and AM radio again)

When did selling loose ciggies become a "Capitol crime"?

When did the cops allowing civillians to not only ride along but murder unarmed people become legal?

Grey was arrested for a knife he didn't have and then MURDERED by cops.

Is that becoming "normal" now?

I said Mozart wasn't the sharpest pencil because everyone with half a brain knows that the greatest economic expansion in the history of the U.S took place during the GWB administration. The Kenyan Usurper took his legacy of peace and prosperity and pushed our economy into a nosedive.

Same thing with Herbert Hoover. Unprecedented prosperity, and then FDR took over and plunged us into the Great Depression.

Yup, being Jewish and practicing your right of free speech is makes you worthy of being called bigoted human garbage and being murdered.

It has nothing to do with being Jewish and practicing free speech.

Here's some info on this "lady":

Through her website, Geller has promulgated some of the most bizarre conspiracy theories found on the extreme right, including claims that President Obama is the love child of Malcolm X, that Obama was once involved with a "crack whore," that his birth certificate is a forgery, that his late mother posed nude for pornographic photos, and that he was a Muslim in his youth who never renounced Islam. She has described Obama as beholden to his "Islamic overlords" and said that he wants jihad to be victorious in America. In April 2011, Geller accused Obama of withholding evidence in the then-upcoming trial of accused Fort Hood mass murderer Major Nidal Malik Hasan.

Geller uses her website to publish her most revolting insults of Muslims: She posted (and later removed) a video implying that Muslims practiced bestiality with goats and a cartoon depicting the Muslim prophet Mohammad with a pig's face (observant Muslims do not eat pork). Geller also has denied the genocide of Bosnian Muslims by Serbian forces in Srebrenica – calling it the "Srebrenica Genocide Myth," even though the Serbian government itself issued a state apology for the massacre. She wrote, "Westerners are admitting to their role in something that didn't happen, and digging their own graves."

Geller will ally with virtually any individual or movement that expresses stridently anti-Muslim sentiments, no matter how otherwise repugnant. As a result, she has frequently rubbed shoulders with elements of white radicalism. In 2009, Geller was invited to address the German far-right organization Pro Köln [Cologne], described as a successor group to the neo-fascist German League for People and Homeland. Pro Köln at the time was under investigation by the German authorities because of its defamation of foreigners and suspected violations of "human dignity." As of early 2011, Pro Köln was officially deemed a right-wing extremist group by the German authorities.

Geller is an enthusiastic fan of Dutch anti-Muslim extremist Geert Wilders. He was charged in 2009 with hate-incitement in the Netherlands, but not convicted. She invited Wilders to speak at the June 2010 "Ground Zero Mosque" rally. In June 2010, Geller spoke at an event in Paris put on by the Bloc Identitaire, which opposes race-mixing and "Islamic imperialism."

At 8:26 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...


Geller invited the notorious British anti-Muslim group English Defence League (EDL) to her September 2010 anti-mosque rally in New York. The previous May, a report by the British newspaper The Guardian revealed the EDL as thugs who hold anti-Muslim protests intended to provoke violence. Because of its racism and history, the EDL's leader, Tommy Robinson, was denied entry at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York and sent back to England.

Yet Geller described the EDL in May 2010 as "courageous English patriots" when the group mobilized popular anger to oppose the construction of a mosque in the town of Dudley, near Birmingham, England. "There is nothing racist, fascist, or bigoted about the EDL," she wrote. In February 2010, she wrote in her blog, "I share the E.D.L.'s goals. We need to encourage rational, reasonable groups that oppose the Islamisation of the West."

In February 2011, she spoke favorably of Soviet leader Josef Stalin's forced relocation and genocide of Chechen Muslims after World War II, arguing – wrongly – that they were allied with Adolf Hitler. Historians say Chechens were fighting to preserve their own freedom and culture.

Geller's incendiary rhetoric and readiness to deny civil freedoms and the presumption of innocence to Muslims hasn't prevented her from gaining a measure of mainstream acceptability. In late March 2011, she was even invited by the Alaska House of Representatives to testify on a proposed anti-Shariah bill.

Geller's anti-Muslim stance has also drawn the admiration of white nationalist and even neo-Nazi proponents on the extreme right – a rather remarkable feat, considering she is Jewish. She has been the subject of positive postings on racist websites such as Stormfront, VDARE, American Renaissance and the neo-Confederate League of the South.

Geller was one of several prominent anti-Muslim activists cited by the Norwegian terrorist Anders Breivik in the manifesto he posted online hours before killing 77 of his countrymen, mostly teenagers, at a left-wing youth camp in August 2011. In the wake of the attack, Geller downplayed the influence of her views on Breivik, making much of the fact that his screed had only mentioned her by name once. This conveniently ignored the manifesto’s dozen citations of her blog and 64 mentions of her SIOA partner, Robert Spencer. At the same time, Geller couldn’t help displaying some sympathy for Breivik’s actions against the young multiculturalists. “Breivik,” she wrote, “was targeting the future leaders of the party responsible for flooding Norway with Muslims.”

As for ISIS coming to Texas, given the GOP position on human rights and personal freedoms of late, I doubt we could tell the terrorist from the Texans.

As for "partial birth abortions" since they are less than .2 percent of total abortions and that more VIABLE HUMANS are killed by corrupt cops every year, maybe Anonymous needs to rethink his priorities. (If he "thinks" at all)

Did Jeb Bush invest taxpayer money in porn?

The Hill

Tim Devaney

Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush is coming under scrutiny from social conservatives for investing taxpayer money in a company with ties to pornography.

The former Florida governor invested $1.3 million from the state’s pension fund into Movie Gallery, a film rental company that offers X-rated films in addition to comedies and action movies, according to a report in the International Business Times.

The report examined thousands of emails from during his tenure that show a strained relationship between Bush and the “religious right.”

One voter wrote Bush was supporting a company that was “enslaving men and women to its addiction.”

American Family Association founder Donald Wildmon, in particular, took offense to Bush’s ties to pornography. He wrote a mass email rallying social conservatives against Bush.

Inside US Homeland, FBI Chief Warns
The President will be safe on Air Force One. The rest,
if you don't own a gun, please proceed in an orderly
manner to a Red State.

What would Bernie do?

Security conditions at U.S. military bases were raised Thursday night, because of growing concern of a jihadist threat in the United States (CNN)
A U.S. official confirmed to CNN that U.S. military bases are now at Force Protection Bravo, which is defined by the Pentagon as an "increased and predictable threat of terrorism." U.S. bases generally have not been at this level since the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, the official said.

What would Bernie do, what will Barrack do?

where has Dave Dubya been? has he accidentally locked himself in a solitary confinement cell in the basement at the prison and can't get out?

The Boy troll doesn't seem to be listening to anyone but Fox news.

ISIS is not in America, but of course there have always been wannabes (Like the Boy Troll is with the KKK)

That stupid bitch in Texas brought this on herself when she held her little "exhibit".

And speaking of people with no guns, why wasn't the security guard there armed? Did she WANT him to get killed so she could use him to martyr her agenda?

What did she expect to happen?

Did she want it to happen?

Is the Boy troll GLAD it happened?

Gee Mozart you dont see to be able to read my posts. I quoted from CNN, idiot!

Notice how the Boy troll suddenly considers CNN a "reliable source" when they report something that he agrees with?


It's just a bunch of wannabes.

The person that should be arrested and charged with 1st degree murder is the bitch who organized the "exhibition". Of curse the gunman should be as well, but she deliberately incited it.

I've been such a fool, Jefferson's Guardian.

Man will always be a man. There is no new man.

We tried so hard to create a society that was equal, where there'd be nothing to envy your neighbour.

But there's always something to envy. A smile, a friendship, something you don't have like the most expensive boogey board and want to appropriate.

In this world, even a Progressive Leaning Forward one, there will always be rich and poor. Rich in gifts, poor in gifts. Rich in love, poor in love.

Note how Mozart is such a moron he cant accept that fucked up again.

Notice how Mozart is such a moron he want's to blame to the potential victim in stead of support her constitutional right to free speech and expression.

What a dumb shit.

No one said she couldn't hold the exhibit, but why shouldn't she take responsibility of her actions?

It's the "Yelling fire in a crowed theater" situation.

It's legal to do it, but anyone that gets stomped on the way out is on your head.

Same situation. And worse, she did this because she knew that there would be a reaction, and had to know it was likely to be a violent one. I'm betting she was HOPING for a violent one.

And then there is the unarmed "Security guard.

WHY put you put an unarmed man outside to protect an exhibit that almost certainly would invite a violent reaction?

BoyTroll, I notice that your comments at 1:00am and 2:00 am are more garbled than usual.

I hope your drinking isn't getting out of control.

I wouldn't bring it up, but you've mocked Mozart in the past about not being able to use spell check.

Help is available. But you have to WANT to get better.

Get some sleep. And put down the bottle.

You've come full circle.

You had some great aliases, but now every time you do someone steals them. How unfair!

An overweight republican man posting as "Vanessa" - now THAT'S sad.
