Hypothetical reason Nunes and Others protect Trump and some mental time travel.

I am theorizing here, speculating with what information I have at hand nothing more. Am I creating a conspiracy theory? Maybe, but not along the lines or crazy as the alt-right(out of their minds) creates.
We know for a fact that Russia did work to influence the last presidential election by hacking, releasing information, planting false news, and the use of bots on social media to stir the passions of the alt-right. ( I can attest to this because I was a recipient of harassment of numerous bots on twitter during the election. I also noted there was a sharp decline of these BOTs after the election and most originated in Russia and not in the US though they claimed to be American on their profiles) anyway let's get back to my speculation, a creation of imagination that has basis in fact. Do I need to do a disclaimer here? Screw it, sue me if you're offended or if this resembles you.
We know a former agent of British Intelligence created a dossier on how Donald Trump could have quite possibly been compromised by Russian intelligence while visiting Moscow sometime in the the not distant past. We know there are reports from allies that say Russia has been grooming Trump for years; this is not far fetched as it seems because this operation has been planned years ago. We know that many of those around Trump are so heavily invested in Russian companies, especially the energy sector, that they need to be reminded to make Checks out to Americans in dollars not Rubles. Trump's sons bragged about their Russian interests and Trump himself wants to put one of his small penis compensating Towers in Moscow. Did I just write that? Oh well.
Let's time travel in our imagination in Donald Trump's shoes to a trip to Moscow whenever that was. We are stoked because we have a chance to put up one of our monuments to our colossal ego and take advantage of the Russian energy boom and make some rubles, I mean dollars. (See it is hard to keep Track) Our jet touches down and we are greeted by one, two, or more of Putin's men, uh Oligarchs, I mean Russian businessmen. We are swept away to Moscow's best hotel but it is nothing compared to one of our over compensating for our small penis towers, I mean hotel. Why is Trump so worried about his small hands and penis? Ah well, we are just along for the ride in his mind. It's a good thing he has such a small IQ so we all can fit.
Our Russian hosts want to have dinner socialize and have some drinks, We don't drink but We get a high from people praising me for my intelligence and business acoo... a koo...uh, business smarts. But what is that word someone on TV once used? It sounds like ack you man, anyway they are praising me and my big head his inflated enough We could overshadow the world.
Wow! Look at that young thing, and that one and that one! Damn good thing Melania isn't along for the ride or we won't be able to sample the local fair. What did the interpreter say to us? Oh, we can have anyone or everyone we want? All of them! Send them up to our room. They are clean? Can't be too careful after all dating in the 80s was our Vietnam after all. Well let us head up to the room so we can see what these women look like in the buff. Hmmm, How do we ask them to shower us with gold? Ok we will jump ahead in our mental time travel trip to the next morning.
Man are we are dragging today and it isn't because of jet lag if you know what we mean? What did the interpreter say? Oh the Russian energy big wigs have someone they want us to meet, someone from the government and they have something to show me at breakfast. Oh great, a business breakfast. Hmm, We wonder what the Russian government guy wants to show me? Maybe it is a surprise and my buddy Putin will be there, We hope so. We so want to be best friends with Putin, bigly!
Ah good, breakfast and our guests are here. That's not Putin. Oh well he has a laptop, maybe we will video chat with Vlad the magnificent. Hey, what the hell? Who recorded this? You recorded that golden shower we received from those women? They were prostitutes? We to do what or you will show this everyone? Run for President? Oh crap, We guess Wewill run for President. What else? Divide America? But how? Oh you will help and give money? Sure just tell us what to do? Man, we should use this blackmail thing in our hotels, it will come in handy.
And by the magic of imagination we are back to the present free of the big giant Oompa Loompa head. We aren't done with our mental time travels yet, there are still two more trips we have to make. Don't worry it won't be to the land of Trump.
We arrive at the hotel. Wow, Trump knows how to make a person feel welcome. ( ok, I lied. It is the land of Trump but not his head, so that is a plus.) we are just a mere Member of the House of Representative from California but Trump makes us fill like a King. This trip is looking up! I sure wish the wife could have joined us. ( If you haven't guessed the destination of this Trip it is Rep. Nunes' Noggin ) Dinner, drinks, a little mingling. Wow, this trip is better than We thought it would be. She is one beautiful lady, We think she has the hots for us. Too bad we're married or else...what? Out of sight out of mind and no one will know? One time won't hurt, but not our room. Let's ditch our aide, good now we're safe.
Let's jump ahead in time to a time when Rep. Nunes takes a ride in an Uber with some colleagues. Wow, long day. This Russian thing is going to be a bear. We are not sure the president will come out of this without being impeached but we cannot say this to anyone including the people we are with right now. Ah, we got a text. God please don't be Schiff, he is driving us nuts. It's a pic, it's a pic of us and that lady from the Trump hotel. She said that flash was nothing..Oh my if someone sees this we are ruined. Who sent this? Bannon. We need to come to the White House to discuss this new intel. We have got to get out of this Uber ride. We will say something important has popped up and will get another ride home.
Ok we are back to now in our imagination mental time travel. Thank God, I felt so limited in those to minds, didn't you? Anyway these mental trips were just to illustrate a possibility and to provide some entertainment in these trying times. Also to show that someone should look into the real reason Nunes acted the way he did and find out what truly motivated him. Thanks for coming along for the ride.

The American government machine is broken and The 4th estate may have helped break it.

The American Government is broken and the 4th estate may have contributed

I am a former Navy Electronics Technician who still loves troubleshooting broken electronics, computers, machines or anything that matter. It is like solving a puzzle, a mystery. When I come across something broken I cannot sleep until I have discovered the fault and a solution to fix the problem. With equipment it is easy to find the fault although sometimes it takes time. With things like politics it takes time and is far from easy but the same troubleshooting methods apply.
Imagine when Donald Trump won the election and how that would affect someone who goes nuts when things don't go right, when the machine is obviously broken.
I have not been able to sleep at night because I know the American government is broken and I am someone who has to know why. The American government is a machine and like any machine it can breakdown from time to time. The founding fathers knew this and established a system of “self repair” providing all parts of the government aren't trashed too. You know the executive, legislative, and judicial branches form a limiting circuit to keep each other from going to far on the power scale. Now this is a good system but it is not perfect so the founding fathers provided a feedback loop that is made up of the people and the press. ( that is why we have the first amendment.)
Normally when something goes wrong in government the press will report on it to the people who will then let the elected representatives know they need to get their act together and fix the problem. This feedback loop becomes extremely valuable and effective when our political system enters “ election mode” things start to really happen. Now if the system is still not running right the feedback loop enters repair mode during the election cycle and the faulty circuit, gear, or other mechanism is replaced by the people with a part they think can get the system running again. Now what if there is something wrong with feedback loop and election cycle repair mode? What if someone hacked into the system and tweaked one of the circuits so that it sent out “ bad signals” to the people side of the feedback loop? Could this be done? Yes and it was done. Remember the Russian Cable guy from “Seinfeld”? It wasn't him, it was a Putin the repair man and his Technicians. So what part of the system did they mess with? The press. Covertly and overtly by manipulating the media through hacks, fake news, and leaks. Now there is more than one circuit to the press subsystem. Each news outlet whether TV, Print, internet, Radio, large, or small is a separate circuit. The press circuits very in how much they impact the feedback loop according to how large the audience is, so if you want to screw up the system you go after a big circuit, one easily accessed through the backdoor. Russia political repair company chose a few circuits but the most notable and biggest was Fox News. Fox News has a large passionate conservative audience and an owner who likes money and power, Rupert Murdoch. With a little willing dealing and money thrown around you have tweaked the Fox News circuit into spilling out all the crap and fear you want the audience to hear. ( am I saying Murdoch is a traitor? No, but he and Fox News sure are pro-Russian all of a sudden!) now you have a large audience receiving the bad signals and it spreads out to people who don't watch Fox News but are influenced by people who do, and also people who follow Alex Jones and Breitbart. All of a sudden you have a number of broken, or just plain evil, press circuits spouting bad info to the people who are in the election cycle. The people circuits are overwhelmed and enough are influenced by the bad info that during the election cycle they select a big orange and very broken main gear to drive the government machine and numerous other bad little gears to go along too. Now we have have a machine that is broken, really broken, with the remaining good gears and circuits trying to repair the machine before it catches on fire. What is making it hard for the remaining good gears and the non-contaminated people circuit is there are still bad circuits like Fox News that needs to be fixed or shut down. ( I so hope that the FBI finds Rupert Murdoch and Fox News aided Russia in spreading false news to influence the election. If they do, they can put Murdoch on trial, convict him, strip him of his citizenship, deport him, and shut down Fox News. I would love to see a few Fox News people on the unemployment line, especially Sean Hannity.)
So to compensate for bad press circuits bringing down the system the good circuits like The Washington Post, The New York Times, MSNBC, CNN, and all others have to work extra hard to minimize the bad and fix the system or we will be stuck in a self destructive negative feedback loop.

Trump playing the Russian blackmail game?

Did Trump do unto others what was done to him?

We know about the dossier on Trump put together by retired British Agent Christopher Steele. We know that it alleges Trump is being blackmailed by Russia who may have compromising material involving Russian prostitutes and golden showers. ( On that note, has anyone else noticed how Melania seems kind of distant from the Donald since that revelation?) If true that means Russia has power over Trump, but this is post will not discuss that, but a what if. What if Trump used the same method for his own gain?
I am a disabled veteran with 11 years experience as a Navigation Electronics Technician on ballistic missile submarines. I received training on how to troubleshoot equipment failures using a set method. I know what is supposed to happen and compare it to what happens. If they don't match there has to be a problem. I gather the system of the failure and use what I know to try to localize the fault. I divide the circuit into smaller and smaller parts until I find the component that failed by checking the goes into with the goes out of to see when Good becomes bad. Sometimes we face intermittent errors that are hard to find so we resort to I know this isn't working right but there is not a hard failure to isolate the problem yet so lets try something different. The outside the box and speculation thing.
Now if no one speculated every now and then we would learn nothing new. Law enforcement would not solve as many crimes or even know a crime was committed if they did say “hmm something isn't right here. Maybe we should look into it.” Well that is what I am about to do.
So what isn't right? Well for one, we have the Republican Party, actually certain members, refusing to consider or look into Donald Trump colluding with Russian intelligence during the last election. Republicans have, until recently, been very firm on dealing with Russia but that seems to have changed during the RNC. Why? In the past if Republicans thought there could be a Russian Traitor in government they would stop everything and investigate, but now it is no big deal. Why?
We have seen some Republicans who seemed to oppose Trump meet with Trump and jump on the “Trump Train”, why? You would think Trump made them a deal they could not refuse. (I chose to use deal here instead of offer because, well “the art of the deal.” Maybe he did make a deal to some key republicans ( Ryan, Nunes, Chaffetz, Mitchell, Gowdy….you get the picture).
Maybe he used power or financial incentive. Maybe he took a page from the Russian playbook of compromat ( I think that is what they call it). I mean he does own hotels and has connections to some seed types who can provide him with services such as escort services. (wasn't there talk about how he recruited young Eastern European girls for modeling but they ended up working as escorts or something?) Maybe when a certain Republican congressman stayed at one of Trump’s hotel they were treated to the best suite and room service with some extra services their wives may not approve. Maybe they got more than they expected, service that went the extra mile and a video to remember the great time they had at the Trump Hotel? I am just speculating here trying to figure out how key Republicans bow to Trump when they know he is unfit for the job and is off his rocker. It doesn't add up with the current variables so there must be a few more to the formula. Maybe the FBI should check to see if Trump Tower is wired, wired by Trump. Check his hotels too. I am not saying Trump may have blackmail material on all or any Republicans. He definitely would not need leverage on all just certain ones. You remember the story about Representative Nunes getting a text or something the night before his bombshell news conference? You know, when he bailed out of an Uber he was sharing with others? Maybe he got the “you better look at this and contact me before someone else sees it? Sincerely Trump” I am not saying Trump gathered all the intel he is using for leverage. He seems to have his own source and we know it isn't from US agencies. Think Russia and the use of go betweens.
Maybe certain key republicans are being blackmailed by Trump and are protecting him to protect themselves. If they are they better hope that the FBI gets someone like Flynn to crack because that Trump wall will be coming down hard on them. Their best bet, best scenario? Do something to save their country, admit they screwed up and Trump used it to blackmail them. If they don’t it is only a matter of time before it comes out in the wash. So they have a choice, both will mean their career is over but one has prison as a possibility.
So maybe Trump is playing the Russian game.

Russia psychoanalyzed the USA and now they are screwing us, Bigly!

Russia psychoanalyzed the USA and now they are screwing us, Bigly!

We know for a fact that Russia did interfere in the 2016 election and they worked to benefit Donald Trump and damage Secretary Clinton. Even as I write this there is an investigation into how much if any involvement the Trump Campaign had in Russia’s operation. I will not get into the FBI investigation (I think Trump and his collection of racist misfit toys are guilty as hell), I will instead look into how Russia was so successful in doing so.
As the title say, “Russia psychoanalyzed the USA.” This operation took more than just hacking to accomplish, it required knowing who to target with leaked information and disinformation along with finding a stooge to use. We all know the stooge Russia backed, the big orange balding liar know as Donald Trump. They knew he is an egomaniac, had the exposure from “The Apprentice”, was considered a successful businessman because of his cultivated image ( which differs from reality “, and his appeal to certain groups. They knew he was a salesman. Trump is a used car salesman playing at big business, he is a con.
But who should Russia target with their version of political warfare and “not so lethal bug ignorant weapon” Donald Trump? Well here is where you need to look at what Russia wanted to accomplish, and what they want is a weak divided America and not the strong “Make America Great Again” Trump sold his supporters. So guess who Russia targeted, had Trump target with his divisive message, his key supporters. They people who hate Muslims and fall for news (fake) saying Sharia law was being instituted in certain cities in America with large Muslim populations even though the constitution does not allow for the implementation of “any” religious laws. They targeted the same people saying “Obama” is a Muslim even though he is a Christian. They targeted the overtly racists and the closeted ones who did not like having a black man as president. They stoked the birther conspiracy ( and if Trump is impeached you can expect more fake birth certificates and other stuff from Russia to cause chaos.) They targeted Gun rights groups with fake news about taking away guns. They targeted sovereign citizens. They targeted hate groups, you name it they targeted extreme right leaning groups to the extreme. They even targeted law enforcement and military groups. Why? I will get to those two groups later.
And liberals do not think you were not targeted, because you were. The DNC leaks were targeted to Berniecrats.
How did they know to target these groups? Because they have been studying America for ages and with the advent of the internet it made it easier for Russian political scientists to look into the deep dark recesses of the American psyche. They monitored forums, Facebook pages, and other social media to gain an understanding of America’s dark underbelly, because everyone knows the underbelly is the weakness easiest to exploit. After a while it went from monitoring to interacting with these groups and being on the internet no one would know they weren't American but Russia, the anonymity of the internet became the mask of the Russian bear. Soon these online Russian operatives were feeding the Americans they were conning information calculated to cause the most damage politically and to stir passions. Even before Trump started calling real news fake, the Russians had already sowed the seed and it grew so the right leaning groups were calling everything positive from the Obama Administration fake news and fake news damaging to democrats as real.(. Pizzagate is an example and even though disproved, far right types still believe it). Obamacare was labeled socialism and the democrats were said to be socialists trying to destroy America. For the extreme right, democrats became an enemy to America.
On September 11, 2001 America was victim to the worst terrorist attack in history, the twin towers came down killing 2,977 innocent people and injuring thousands more. It was an act of what Trump calls “ Radical Islam” and that attack is embedded into our collective memory for all time. Most of us know it was not an attack that represents all Muslims but those who have a distorted view of Islam.  But there are those in America that believe all Muslims are evil and celebrated the attack. Since that time we have taken part in military actions in countries know to support terrorism and our military faced “ Islamic extremists” who killed our troops. Russia saw this and in forums and other places they used this to stoke the anti-Muslim crowd.  Why? Because it divides Americans.
Recently we had numerous cases of black men and women being killed by police officers which further divided America between those who wanted it to stop and those who say black lives matter was anti law enforcement. I am not here to debate that but to say that issue was used to stoke fires. Yes, law enforcement you too were targeted by Russian psychological political warfare machine. On your forums you probably heard an increase of how black lives matter wants to kill cops, black men or more dangerous, and read other forum members discussing their experiences or another's of how black men are stronger and more violent, Super predators. The thing is you do not know if these were actual law enforcement officers or someone playing as law enforcement to stoke the fire. Yes, Russia did plant people into your circle and you may have noticed those same people stopped posting after the election. Why? Because their job was done and they weren't getting paid anymore. No, Russia just wanted to use your concern for fellow officers to help divide and conquer. ( Russia was not counting on a Trump win as much as it was civil unrest (the armed type, not just protests))
And for Black Lives matter, you were targeted to by people posing as black who tried to stoke the fire anyway they could hoping that it would cause race riots. We all were being played from the outside by the Russian Political Science and psychological war machine.
Remember fake news that said black lives matter was blocking hospitals? Guess who generated that? Someone trying to start a race war. Who would benefit from that? Russia.
I could go on and write a book on this if I had the time, maybe someone will look into this and do so in the future. I hope so, so it will prevent a repeat of this. I know I did not cite sources, this is a blog about my own analysis of what I have read over the last year and what I observed.
The key to my analysis is a book written by, Aleksandr Dugin, a Russian political scientist who acts as an adviser to Putin and the Kremlin. The book is called, “Foundations of Geopolitics.” The book lays out a game plan for every region of the world and how Russia can expand its power while weakening those countries that stand in its way, like America. Russia would not do anything to strengthen America because it knows a strong America would hamper its expansion an keep sanctions in place. No, Russia wants to weaken America economically and politically so it has no leverage over other countries to impose sanctions on Russia. It wants NATO destroyed that is why they are working to split Turkey from American influence.
Russia lucked out when Trump won. They expected they would divide America enough to cause civil Unrest and force the US off the world stage while it got it own house in order. What happened? Their political / psychological war machine was a little more successful than they expected, just enough to give Trump the electoral college vote. This may have set back Russian expansion timetable, because if they acted too soon it would have show their card, plus they have not finished using their  poliPsych warfare machine to weaken Europe enough. And Russia is using the Syrian war because the influx of refugees puts extra political pressure on the leaders of Europe and they are using that to their advantage. Now let's cut to it.
Why target so many groups when they are the minority? ( yes, Trump supporters you are the minority) Because Russia was not trying to elect Trump as much as they were trying to start something close to a civil war in America. The Russian intelligence knows that there are groups in the United States who threaten to take up arms if things don't go their way so they try and stoke the fire to make it boil over. By doing what they did they have put a crack in America, let's keep them from widening it. As the Russian-Trump picture becomes clearer expect more exaggerated and divisive claims from Donald Trump and his cabinet. (Remember, Bannon would love nothing more than destroy the America the constitution guarantees) expect information leaked from Russia that will try to show President Obama was unAmerican or anything that makes Democrats look bad. We are fighting a new war, a cyber political psychological war CyPolPsych warfare or PoliPsych warfare.

Trump needs to explain why his campaign contacted Russian assets being investigated.

Rep. Nunes, who heads the House Intelligence committee was wrong by briefing Trump on The Russian-Trump campaign investigation, but he may have did everyone a favor except Team Trump. By Donald Trump saying he feels " somewhat vindicated " he acknowledges that he and his team were caught by US intelligence who were monitoring Russian intelligence assets. Let that sink in a minute. Rep. Nunes said that the President and some of his team may have been "incidentally " intercepted while the FBI and other US intelligence assets were looking into Russian interference with the US election. In order for this to happen, Trump or someone on his team had to have contact with someone, Russian asset, being monitored by the US. Trump wasn't being monitored or having his phone tapped, it was the Russians who were being tapped and monitored and by chance Team Trump was caught talking to the Russian assets. Summing up Team Trump walked into a counter intelligence investigation. Trump needs to explain why he was communicating with Russian Intelligence assets being investigated by FBI and NSA. Trump wasn't wiretapped the people he and his team contacted were.

Why Russia under Putin is a threat to World peace and unity.

When the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991 it ended an era. The Cold War that dominated geopolitics since the end of the Second World War seemed at an end. No more would the war to stop Soviet Aggression be fought via client states and radical organizations. Peace at last, at least where it concerns the west verses Soviet Expansion. Like others the United States watched and encouraged the change in Russia hoping a true democracy would replace a repressive government only to see those in power divide the assets of the former Soviet Union amongst themselves. One person who worked for the Soviet intelligence organization, KGB, saw an opportunity and used connections to rise become a leading political power in Russia and eventually its leader. Vladidimir Putin used the knowledge he obtained from his days with the KGB, and the FSB which replaced it, to make alliances and eliminate opponents. Mr. Putin even appointed his successor to act as a placeholder prime minister until he could once again take the reigns.
Not happy with the shrinking power and influence of Russia, Putin began planning ways of making Russia a Superpower like the former Soviet Union but found the United States and her allies standing in the way. The US was not trying to keep Russia from playing a part in World affairs, it just wanted Putin to play by the rules and respect democracy. The problem is that Putin is former KGB and was taught not to trust anyone, especially the US. So Mr. Putin defaulted to his training using old KGB methods to obtain what he wanted. One thing he wanted was to annex the Ukraine into Russia because he and other Russians think the Ukraine should not be Sovereign because it is a natural part of Russia, unfortunately for him most Ukrainians and the world don't share this view. Putin gambled that he could manipulate the political situation in the Ukraine and lost. Following the revolution in the Ukraine that ousted his puppet in that country he undertook more drastic actions by sending in Russian special forces acting as separatists to stir up trouble. In doing this he took he Crimea and annexed it into Russia with a rigged election. His "separatists" still occupy parts of Eastern Ukraine and have shot down a Malaysian Airliner that over flew the area.  When the US under President Obama stood up to Putin by slapping sanctions on him and the Russian Oligarchy, Putin became angry and wanted revenge. Putin wanted to not just revenge he wanted to weaken the US, to isolate it so he could continue unopposed in expanding Russian power and influence so he turned to his advisors in the Geopolitical Community to create a plan for political warfare against the United States and her allies. In Europe he has set up a campaign to take down the European Union by fanning Nationalism and hate against Muslims. Do you think Putin wants to end the Syrian war when he knows that the influx of refugees into Europe and the threat of terrorism works to his advantage by putting strain on the EU? No, he will keep that fire going as long as it is useful to him.
In the United States he played a Trump card by fanning nationalism and racism in the US by interfering in an election and aiding a man that is probably in collusion with Russian intelligence for one reason or another. What does he want? A weakened US that alienates its allies and whose only influence is isolated to that of the Americas. He wants to drive a wedge between us and other countries we have as allies. He wants the US to take on China to weaken both countries so Russia can reign supreme in world affairs. Why do you think Trump is threatening war with North Korea? To stop its nuclear program and protect our allies? Heck Trump already made it clear he would not come to Japan's aid if attacked. No Russia would like the US to attack North Korea and would not mind if Trump targeted North Korea's nuclear facilities with a nuke or two. He is gambling that China would not retaliate on NK's behalf using Nuclear weapons but conventional. China may have a nuclear arsenal but its capabilities are lacking and it is extremely outgunned by the US so it would not risk nuclear annihilation for North Korea. What it would do would be to throw world trade in turmoil by closing of the South China Sea and attacking American allies in that region, along with Japan and North Korea. Putin would love this.
Trump supporters claim Russia did the US a favor by helping elect Trump but they are very mistaken. Why? Because no country will act in such away that it will do something for the benefit of another country without gaining leverage over that country. Putin doesn't want America Great, he wants it weak, divided, and poor.

Bernie Sanders is not the answer. He is a political opportunist and used car salesman

I read something that has upset me. What I read was a quote of Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont saying "The Democratic Party is a sinking ship." Well if it is Senator Sanders helped torpedo it.
In the past Senator Sanders may have been a champion of Social Causes today, and may talk the talk today, but like others in politics he has been bitten by the power bug and has changed. What has he changed into? Many words and comparisons apply here but the two main ones are: "Used Car Salesman " and "political opportunist."
First, why do I say he is a "used car salesman ?" Because he sold his supporters free college which is not possible. Colleges are like any other institution and requires money to operate. That money has to come from somewhere, but where? The obvious answer would be a tax increase on a portion of the population or the whole. It would most likely be both and here is why. Without reform the cost of attendance and cost for operations will only increase. Heck they still will increase with reform because that is how things work. If you increased corporate taxes and that of the rich it would eventually not keep up pace with increased costs then a new source of moneys would be required. I mean you can't expect to tax the rich and corporations near 100%. The time will come when the middle class would be taxed at a higher rate and that won't fly. Who wants to pay taxes for someone who may just waste taxpayer's money partying? And what will corporations do? Take their business elsewhere or find ways to make up for the loss of money by increased tax. Cut down on the number of people the employ, increase prices for goods and services, cut out charitable giving, including endowments for colleges. Free college is a noble idea but the actual implementation is not practical.
Senator Sanders knows this and despite what he says, or his plan says, it cannot be done. The best thing would be tuition reform and national service for tuition. He promised you a Rolls Royce but what you are getting a "Yellow Le Car." (Seinfeld reference)
The political opportunist. Yes, he is and members of the Democratic National Convention were right in looking at him as an outsider. What they were wrong in doing was plotting to sabotage him or use his ethnic background against him. What they should have done was tell him he could not run as a democrat just for the election and use their resources. He calls himself an independent then let him run as one. How many Democrats worked hard for their party only to have an outsider come to take advantage of their work? Don't tell me he has been an ally of the Democratic Party. He only has done so for his benefit, he's a politician. Don't say he raised money for the DNC because the damage he has done outweighs any contribution. What damage? We have a President Trump for god's sake. Senator Sanders wanted to use the assets of the DNC for the Presidential election, nothing more. A political sponge, political parasite, or political opportunist. Any of those terms will fit. I am not saying Senator Sanders is a bad guy overall, what I am saying he is not as altruistic as he would have people believe.
And you Berners who believe they did the right thing with protest votes and smarter than those who came before? You are blooming idiots who fell for fake news like Trump Supporters. You were played. You are like children who if you can use the cardboard box to play your way destroy it so no one else can use it. In short, you are immature.
