My meanderings about politics, LGBTQ COMMUNITY, space exploration, cars, cats, tech things and whatever else strikes my fancy. To the current occupant of the White House, we will not be taken into war on anyone's leash.
Bernie Sanders and his holier-than-thou view of the world is hypocritical. I am so fed up with listening to him say over and over again that he does not have super Pacs. First of all he does. Second of all candidates do not control their super Pacs. I could set up a Super PAC for Robert Dole who is 96 right now and raise money in the super pack but Robert Dole would have no say about it. That is what is so wrong with Citizens United and all of the black money that’s in our system right now. So Bernie Sanders stop criticizing other people because they can’t control what super Pacs do for them. It’s against the law.

It was reported by MSNBC that after hearing he had lost Bernie Sanders flew to Burlington in his private jet without his press contingent. This has never happened before. He met with a very small group of Burlington reporters on the tarmac and said that he needed to think and would have something to say about the race in the future. http://www.cbsnews.com/news/live-updates-new-york-democratic-primary-results/
This is that night in 2008 that I was miserable. I did not want to believe it but Hillary Clinton had lost her bid for the nomination to become the president of the United States. In that same spirit I am asking Bernie Sanders and his supporters to come to that realization and support the only person that will make our future great. The Supreme Court hangs in the balance so does the House and Senate. Much of the complexion of our country will be decided in the next four years and we cannot let a demagogue like Donald Trump do the deciding. So it’s time to stop the fighting and the name calling and to unite behind the person that will make our country truly great. And that person is Hillary Clinton.

Bernie Sanders who is a proponent of the separation of church and state does not seem to have the same belief regarding papal intervention in a primary race. I am very disappointed in Pope Francis for inviting Bernie Sanders in the middle of a contentious primary race. AVB http://www.bbc.com/news/election-us-2016-35999269
