They ask me continually via email who I'm for; Bernie or Hillary. Here's my short response.

The corruption in this country is off the rails. I've seen standards of living for everyone not rich fall drastically since Reagan. Obama was a great President given the cards he was dealt, but gains didn't reach the former middle, working class and poor. My health insurance premiums have actually gone up, not down, on a par with everything else (rent, cost of food etc), everything that is except wages. Work has been harder to get in my field if you're not already working or able to "pay to play". Now Clinton may be fine, but we don't need "fine", we need action. I'm also skeptical of her past (young Republican for Goldwater, working for Walmart, her niceties with Kissinger and that fascist antiChrist Trump), not to mention that her husband embarrassed the Presidency, making him persona non grata during the 2000 Election (thus paving the way for the worst President ever in Bush). Bill Clinton also supported and signed into law more financial deregulation legislation than any other President before him, and dissolved the Depression-era Glass-Steagall law, so why should his wife be awarded the Presidency as if she's an actor who's "due" an Oscar after losing out so many times on the extraneous, luxury back scratching (patting) award? Awwww... poor Leo Decaprio and Hillary, they've suffered. The hell they have, they're worth ducats up the ying yang each, and neither are the best candidate/nominee, let's be honest. Ok, Leo will win the Best Actor self-congratulation Award, he has little competition this year, but Sanders is the better Presidential candidate to fight for and lead us into the future, and the only one seemingly to have empathy for all of us left behind by Reagan's steady trickle of piss and the giant steaming dump Dubya deposited on our collective heads.

It ain't "Bernie or Bust" stupid. Yeah, there's a difference, a big one, but not bigger then the Grand Canyon-sized chasm the Dems have with the Teapublicans.

You read the newsfeed on here and every other post is "damning evidence about Hillary" this or "Bernie's pipe dream" that. Get a life. Come November, whichever one of them is the nominee has my vote, for better or for worse. Do they have yours? I'm with Sanders until then, but this "she said, he said" see-saw shouldn't keep your eyes off the prize: defeating those backwards, fascist fear-monger$ on the other side. They have no respect for the Constitution and no empathy for you (unless you're a filthy rich, racist, gun toting church goer).

Supreme Justice?

I can't cheer a person's passing, but let's hope this is just the first death knoll of the Reagan Revolting-lution that's destroyed SO MANY lives.

Stating the Obvious

Less than 2 weeks ago more than 2 feet of snow fell in NYC. Today, there is nary a milligram of moisture remaining on the ground from the "Blizzard of the Century", aka Snowmageddon. It will be 116 degrees in July and the increasing impoverished percentage of humanity that cannot afford the soon-to-be premium costs of air-conditioning (or shuttle themselves to and fro in their luxury vehicles) will be burnt to a crisp before the year 2100.
