Why this Republican is Voting for Bernie Sanders
Just imagine the reaction in the rightwing media if President Obama had said anything remotely close to this.This is a bad time in international politics, and we need someone in the Oval Office who can deal competently -- and with a cool head -- with events as they rapidly unfold. I'm typing this hours after Turkey shot down a Russian plane, which is sure to lead to unpredictable repercussions. Obama's reaction has been entirely appropriate. Can you imagine Trump or Carson in that position? Trump would demand indiscriminate retaliation against someone (probably Russia), while Carson would sit there dithering and not knowing what to say. They both think you can run international politics like a game show.
Did you give up arguing math with me? Net wages are not up. But wages are starting to rise. My job is solid as a rock. The company I work for is expanding rapidly. It is union, and we just negotiated a five year contract. They are booked solid with projects. Iron workers have it hard, mostly because of cheap foreign metal flooding the market, I believe. Just remember all my numbers were right.
. . . you missed a couple of steps . . . Snig . . . first the corporations extract as much private profit possible . . . washes their hands . . . and sticks the public with the clean up tab.+OUR deregulating Republicans have put corporations in charge . . . and the GOP complains about government restricting their freedom.
And the walls(treet) came tumbling down..
