What is most disappointing is that Sanders has refused invitations to speak to the Green Party, a truly democratic national party that has long championed the progressive stands that lifted the Sanders campaign to the top of national polls.
Fortunately, this November voters across America will still have the choice to cast a revolutionary vote to cancel student debt, achieve full employment and stop the climate meltdown through a Green New Deal, provide universal healthcare with Medicare for All, provide a welcoming path to citizenship, end mass incarceration and create a foreign policy based on international law and human rights. We need to commit to improving the lives of all Americans, not just the wealthy and special interests.

Bernie Endorses Hillary.
How disgusting is that?
Not surprising. Predictable in fact. But disgusting nonetheless.

I hope Trump wins. I hope the Green Party performs better than expected.

Trump has provided the most apropos and hilarious sound byte yet:

Bernie Sanders endorsing Crooked Hillary Clinton is like Occupy Wall Street endorsing Goldman Sachs.

Tom, I'm not sure if this is a joke or not:


Probably. Hopefully.

Random said...

Never mind. Article says probably a mistranslation.

Bob said...

Use your vote to send Bernie Sanders a message.

Matt Franko said...

Random don't put anything past them

Bob said...

He meant to say 'other leaders on this planet'. Or we should hope so! LOL

Tom Hickey said...

That's what Juncker said, but the consensus is that it was a slip of the tongue. Of course, the conspiracy theorists are having a field day with it.

Bob said...

From "de notre planete" to "d'autres planetes" is enough for the laugh of the week.

Tom Hickey said...

The leaders are "from another planet" in American slang.

"Mr. Jefferson, though too revolutionary in his notions, is yet a lover of liberty and will be desirous of something like orderly Government – Mr. Burr loves nothing but himself – thinks of nothing but his own aggrandizement – and will be content with nothing short of permanent power in his own hands – No compact, that he should make with any passion in his breast except Ambition, could be relied upon by himself – How then should we be able to rely upon any agreement with him? Mr. Jefferson, I suspect will not dare much. Mr. Burr will dare every thing in the sanguine hope of effecting every thing..."

- Hamilton endorses his rival Jefferson. History rhymes.
