something to honk about
For no good reason, my off-topic, somewhat irrelevant thoughts on Bernie Sanders.
I never got on board. Just about everyone I know boarded the Bernie Sanders train and most of them are still riding it on the railroad tracks to nowhere land. Early on in the campaign, before the Democratic party stole the primary and handed it to Hillary, when Bernie Sanders was gaining ground and gaining popularity… oh, my liberal friends were eating it up. They loved his unpolished demeanor and his message of equality, inclusiveness, and bold promises of public spending on healthcare, education, support for Planned Parenthood and Black Lives Matter.
Don’t get me wrong, I welcome those messages as well, especially in contrast to the lying, posturing, corporate greed and warmongering of the other candidates. I agree with Bernie Sanders on the goals of equal opportunity and justice. I suspect he doesn’t know shit about economics, but I don’t understand that stuff well enough myself to be sure.
