Most people coming south from Canada aren't coming here looking for handouts and freebies. Big Diff. #TooEasy
"we re gunna build a wall, and make Canada pay for it!"
I particularly like TINKLE-down economics, where Trump and his buddies stand on tall building and pee on all of us while laughing!
This is a true assessment.
Already joined. Can't wait to get started.
Mr. Hightower! It was an honor to meet you in San Angelo at a Dem Party meet arranged by my late, close friend, Perry Flippin. I had suffered a heart attack a few days earlier, and the heat at the crowded venue didn't help my condition, so I had to leave early...but back to the Postal Service. You are absolutely correct that the USPS has been torpedoed by the very competitors (can we spell UPS and FedEx?) through their minions in Congress who are bought and paid for.
I for one have had problems with UPS damaging a family antique then refusing to take responsibility for it, and FedEx ain't spotless, either. For my money the USPS is the only way to fly!
When Vietnamized wrote:
“…this country has always been something of a socialist democracy.” …
he reminded me that the first three words of the Constitution are: “We the People”, not “Me the Individual”, or “It the Corporation”.
Bernie reawakened many Americans to the spirit of the Founders and their desire to make America a “more perfect union”. He reminded us that the government they established is aspirational, not confrontational, inclusionary, not exclusionary, and exists to make all citizens’ lives better, not establish an environment for protecting expanded Capitalist exploitation. Yes, this is a Democratic Socialist Nation, founded during the enlightenment’s heightened awareness of the Social Responsibility we ALL share in expanding the Common Good.
I helped sponsor Mr. Hightower to speak to the Democrats in Tom Green County, TX prior to the 2012 election - I'm a huge fan, and I think he's exactly right. Bernie 'spoke' to all of us when he belabored the system for being corrupt and rigged for the rich. I would have voted for him without reservation. Now we have to avoid a Trump presidency and there is no way I'm going to split the vote. What would our world be like if the new President was favored by Vladimir Putin, his puppet master Aleksandr Dugin and owes millions to the Chinese banking system.
I strongly agree with NewTom that Bernie has had a positive influence on the Democratic platform and I would remind other readers that this country has always been something of a socialist democracy. We all pay for common services and infrastructure...as long as some anti-tax, debt-addled sequestering fool doesn't shut the government down again (are you listening, Ted Cruz?)
That's a reassuring thought. He strongly influenced the platform's Hopefully we'll get a election results that will put the government back to work rather than obstructing every good idea
More of the same liberal media trash talk. Yawn.... Speaking of liars...... the Clintons have both lied under oath.
Thank you for this information, Jim! 😎👍🏼
You should loose "Progressive" because its an instant turn off to about half the population, and you should loose "Bernie" because he has been part of the system for 30+ years and who caved to the "system". If you just went after...say......house and senate term limits you might get further.
So you're calling the same party that enacted TARP, and found it did nothing to help the economy out over saying no to more spending on nothing? So it's ok to simply not allow something to come up and be discussed but hear it out and have a vote is bad ? Under Harry Reid that's what happened, and he even put in to actuon the rule you are complaining about. What are you really upset about? That you can't get a spending pass to do what ever you want or that you have no other solutions to the problems facin the country.
Hightower? Is that nasty old bullshit artist really still alive?
that looser gets elected and you might well grab yer combat boots and fatigues cuz china has said they will not take it sitting down. yes I expect a war plain and simple....they will say something and trump will shoot his mouth off like he does and that will be the end.
any idea where Philip Anschutz hides his money?
Bernie still has a chance to influence the race, even if he doesn't win, like you said, he has energized the populace who want his policies enacted. I still think he has the best chance to beat the republi-cons in the fall.

TPP & other Global Treaties/”Arrangements’
Grassroots America & overly polite global neighbors & need to know; Is it Impolite to Compare Corporate ‘America’s’ Desperation to ‘Share’ & Expand its $17 Trillion Debt via its flurry of Global Treaties/’Arrangements’ to the ‘bitchy’ (post Nixon PMS bullying) Desperation of Zza Zza Gabor when she slapped a cop for giving her a traffic ticket (for stepping out of her ‘land of the shrinking mirror’)?
Corporate America, after its 2008 ‘Tactical Probe’ into Deregulation & Its Sub sequential Buying Short on its Global Recession, is Anxious for Its Legitimized & Globalized (TPP/TTIP/CETA) ‘Full Invasion’; HSBC’s money laundering, Enron’s insider trading, Chase Bank’s fraud, etc.
Corporate Canada & its Traditional Big 3 Political Parties are desperate to increase its play time under the ‘skirts’ of Corporate U.S. in the International Glitter Game.
TPP, TTIP, CETA; Roll-back NAFTA, et al, Tribunal Penalties (ISDS) paid by Canadian lil’ guy; $125 M & $25 M legal fees to Reneging Corporate America. U.S. Pays ‘0’. ‘You Should have Known’; President Bush. Prohibit Future TPP, et al, ISDSs.
Corporate ‘U.S.’ is Leaving Grassroots America, et al, Fatally Vulnerable; China can Kill TPP, et al, by Offering its Trade Partners Alternative to citizen Punishing Dispute Settlements (ISDS) & few other ‘Hearts & Minds’ choices? CHINA too ‘Humbling’ for Corporate America & Assocs.? Is a Kinder & Wiser CHINA too ‘Humbling’ for Corporate America & Assocs.?
ANTI-Globalists (GREENs) PROHIBITED from ‘Corporate Canada’s Election’ DEBATE…
Can the Canadian, et al, voters even debate the Pros & Cons of the TPP & other Global Treaties/’Arrangements’ when the CBC & Corporate Canada’s media have Decided that the TPP is NOT a CHOICE, but, merely a matter of ‘Choosing the best negotiator..’ of their ’Arrangements’?
How long have Global Corporate Associates been ‘Passing’ Legislation in Anticipation of Suing Once Ratified? ‘Trickle’ Up & Out Economics.
Do Harmless, Individual Taxpayers Needs Direct, Cash Dividends from Corporate America & Global Assocs. for Secret Corp. Benefits Paid for by the Harmless Taxpayers?
TPP & Global Corporate Treaties/’Arrangements Not about How Much Trade, but, How to ‘Vichy’ Profits, Who to Trade with to 'Undermine' AIIB & more about Tort ‘Abolishment’ than Tort ‘Reform’?
TPP nations, et al, need ‘good corporate citizens’ that respect our legislation & need to ‘out’ bad corporate voters via shareholder meetings?
Americans, Japanese, et al, look forward to working with Savvy Slave Trading Malaysians & Slick Cultural ‘Genociding’ Canadians. ‘But, we didn’t know’.
Traditional Canadian Parties Demanding Supplicance to Corporate Canada & its Global Corporate Assocs. is an unholy sin?
Will Pope Francis & other leaders Intercede with Prayer against PM Harper, Corporate Canada, The Canadian Establishment, et al, for Continuing to Blame & Punish those who are continuing to be Deprived of the Due Diligence Info and Continuing its Cultural Genocide? Protecting the Human Rights of Unborn Native Canadians, et al.
Making the leaders of TPP, Shareholders, et al, 'Persona non Grata'; Shareholders' Meetings I.D. Toxic Neighbors, In-laws, et al?
by David E.H. Smith, ‘Qui tam…’
• After New Zealand’s PM admitted that medicines will cost more, have the citizens of New Zealand & other TPP nations also noticed similar moves like Canadian Prime Minister Harper below? ‘To help pay for the harmless taxpayers ‘guilty transgressions’ against Global Corporations in Canada, Prime Minister Harper has recently cut the funding for health care by $36 billion dollars’. (please see article below)
But, will the lil' guy get 10 years to read, consider, discuss & improve upon (with lawyers paid by Global Corporate Assocs.)?
