Bernie did it for some money and power, both to be decided later, after the election. Plus of course, Benie wanted to live for that future moment.
“Have you ever wondered what it might look like if a cult that enabled death and destruction and chaos and anarchy had its own national convention? I have.
…If there were such a convention, perhaps we could expect to see flags representative of regimes that soaked themselves in the blood of their own citizens and their enemies. Maybe some nice Soviet flags, or Communist Chinese flags, or some Palestinian flags. What a pretty spectacle that would be at a convention of supposedly American citizens who left American ideals behind decades ago in pursuit of domination, increasingly by any means necessary…
…Such a convention might prominently feature those who have not only broken the law, but are immensely proud of their lawlessness and how they have gained from it, along with their friends. After all, what good is massive corruption if you can’t share it with those you wish to keep from stabbing you in the back?” —Jeffrey T. Brown
A bright idea from Diplomad:
On Russia. Trump is right.
There is no reason for inevitably bad relations with Moscow. Trump is right that NATO is a joke, at least the way it is presently organized and funded. We need to rethink NATO and come up with a new security alliance that includes, yes–horrors!–Russia. Yes, Russia should be our ally. Let’s be blunt. There’s nothing wrong with having this large powerful Christian (Oops! Said the “C” word) country with a skillful military and world class intel service on our side when fighting the 1400-year war with Islam. The Russians understand invasions and the threat from Islam pretty well.
Four old cowboys are having a discussion about what is the fastest thing in the world.
First cowboy says “I believe it’s thinking, ’cause when you prick your finger or touch a flame, the pain instantly becomes thought and hits the brain”.
Second cowboy says “Well, I think it’s blinking. When you blink and open your eyes again, you immediately see everything. Nothing is changed”.
Third cowboy says “Well, I think its light, ’cause as soon as you press that light switch, you go from dark to instant light”.
Fourth cowboy says “Well, I think it’s the Mexican-two-step diarrhea”.
All the others ask simultaneously “Diarrhea? Why?”
Fourth cowboy says “I’ll explain it to you. I went across the border to a saloon last night and drank a buncha homemade Mexican tequila. On the way home from the saloon, I stopped off at Lupe’s cafe and ate two helpings of her Mexican Special, which I suspect had been warmed over a time or two, and a buncha jalapenos and some chili peppers I never saw before”.
First cowboy asks “So, what’s that got to do with speed or diarrhea?”
Fourth cowboy says “Well, later on when I was in bed, I felt this fire and fierce rumbling in my belly, and before I could think, or blink, or turn on that goddamn light”…

The Last American Presidential Election
Hillary Clinton said that Americans will have to change their religious and personal convictions. Convictions and belief systems of citizens should not stand in her way. Cultural codes and religious beliefs have to change, Hillary said. She said the same thing in April of last year at the the sixth annual Women in the World Summit.
Instead of worrying about Fascism by Trump, people might want to look to the real and substantiated Fascism of Mrs. Clinton.
Americans have to change their beliefs because she says so? She will tell us what to think?
She was mostly referring to abortion but she can extend that to anything. She’s now the thought police.
In addition, Tim Kaine who claims to be personally against abortion, agreed to repeal the Hyde Amendment in exchange for the VP position.

In The Road to Serfdom F.A. Hayek explained that under socialist government “planning” the following scenario will occur: The plans inevitably fail, after which the planners respond by granting themselves even more power, which means less freedom and more oppression. They become more and more dictatorial, and more and more willing to throw morals out the door. Democracy is destroyed, step by step.
The latest example of this phenomenon is democratic socialist Venezuela, where the government first completely ruined its economy with socialism — the stores are empty and middle-class people who used to have good jobs are literally rooting through garbage in the streets looking for food to eat. The Venezuelan government is now ordering citizens to work on farms for at least sixty days to avert a starvation crisis. Forced labor is always and everywhere a key feature of socialism and welfarism. (Under the latter, the productive class is forced to work for months out of each year just to pay taxes that are used to subsidize others — a good definition of “slavery”).
