A defense of Bernie
Sanders in response to the Cynic's weekend
First off, let me mention I know my name is misspelled before you accuse me
of a lack of spelling knowledge. Secondly, what kind of a boring numbnuts,
spends the whole weekend watching CSPAN?
The Cynic certainly seems to have an appropriate name. As cheesy as it is,
I've always liked Bobby McFarrin's motto, "Don't worry, be happy". As our
Cynic seems to see it, everyone who doesn't follow his/her thinking is wrong
and mostly brain-dead. Yet on the other hand, The Cynic wants less Gov't
intervention, as he states about Rep. Bernie Sanders, "he wants your
government to have a hand in everything... this is really a shame." This idea
to me goes along with freedom of speech, which goes hand in hand with free

Social Security Withholdings from "the likes of Bill Gates and Warren Buffet"

Cynic, you think there won't be any more rich people after the folks we have

Paying attention to the effect of things that happen in your government is the best way to
keep them in check. Wandering through life without a worry is a surefire way to get abused by your government.
CAPITALISM is the opposite of SOCIALISM which Bernie claims to
embrace. If Bernie gets his wishes there will be no Capitalism, and therefore no rich guys.
If Bernie is the alternative to the typical 2 party system, we are in real trouble.
From someone calling himself Dr. Fuji

Another ignorant, dingbatted fringe lunatic attempting to ignore the last 8
years of Clinton's serious ass-kicking.
Haven't you poor loons learned YET?"
And it would seem that someone simply
calling himself "Critic" ain't getting any. How else

article with no evidence of original thought. Stylistically boring,
and written for the intellectual level of a junior high school
student. Good thing she's pretty, but given the choice, I'd rather
look like Camille Paglia and be blessed with the ability to write with
her brilliance and erudition."
We won't get into the nuances of language with one that
admires the likes of Camille Paglia, but can a writer be
"blessed" with deep learning as he implies or do you have to
work at it? But then maybe this was his first foray into using a
four syllable word so I guess we can excuse it. You
