    Wonder is she knows that the "them" consists of just him. He is considered an Independent and is nothing like the other independent in the Senate.

    The them don't even legislate over her for the most part. Sanders is from my state and has ensure don't end up being the hell hole that is most of Texas is with the exceptions of places where cool people like dana and winston live.

    Bernie Sanders is the man. There was a part where he talked about wages in the automobile industry depreciating 50% and that the gold standard in manufacturing jobs is no an appalling $14 without unionization. Pathetic. America has no good jobs anymore, multi-nationals take all the jobs to various parts of the world where its more 'competitive'. I want livable wage jobs here in America, now. Viva la Bernie!

    Yesterday, Bernie Sanders, the Senator from Vermont, the only open democratic socialist in the Congress gave an eight and a half hour speech detesting Obama's deal with the Republican leadership to extend the Bush tax cuts for 2 years in exchange for 13 months of unemployment benefits.

    He brings up a variety of issues, including many those who agree with him brought up here. I've enjoyed it very much so far, and I'm only 2.5 hours in. I suggest you all give it a watch, no matter your political beliefs.

    A link to the full 8.5hr speech can be found here
    I think it is somewhere around the 4-5 hr mark that he talks on how much more the bailed out banks and investment firms have made since their bailouts.

    I left it on one tv so saw bits and pieces of it. Being a CSPAN junkie I usually do though.
    Thanks for the link.

    What the idiots on the left fail to realize is that the majority of the jobs that have gone oversea is because of Unions. Companies dont want to have to listen to a bunch of crybabies that think they are entitled to a job. So they move overseas where the labor is cheap and the people willing to do the job and not bitch and whine everytime they dont feel like working.

    Its a sad state of America when Union workers are worked under the table by some third world country.

    Your inability to create a post without swearing and the fact that you almost never sound coherent makes us all laugh. You are a living conservative stereotype. A baby Navy Pride.

    I'm glad you brought that up. I'm damn sick of the military fighting for my freedoms that I'm sick of anyway.

    Oh so true, How dare an AMERICAN want to be more than a third world worker.

    How dare an AMERICAN fight for the right to make a living wage so they can send their kid to college or take them to Disney or even out to a decent resturant.

    They should strive to become like the third world worker. They should be happy that companies in those countries provide a room in the back or basement of the building for kids to sleep in after 12-16 or more hours of working, why would they need to go to school, they have a job already.

    AMERICANS should strive to not work for a wage that would allow them to save to act on and get patents fot innovations they come up with, just tell the big boss your idea, he/she has the money and can get the patents, create the jobs and collect the money the innovation would make.

    Yes AMERICANS should just get over the AMERICAN dreams they think this country was founded on, America would be so much better off as a third world nation.
