From today's local paper in Marshalltown, IA- "The only candidate who paid was Bernie Sanders."
to People of Marshall County For Bernie Sanders https://www.facebook.com/Marshalltown4Bernie/?fref=photo
love her. They don't care what's she's done or that she sides with the banksters over those in poverty, they love her and that's all that counts.
...we love Bernie! We are not crazy nuts that aren't thinking rationally! We are Americans from all walks of life that REALLY wanted change & got hoodwinked by Obama! Hillary represents the same and Senator Bernie Sanders DOES NOT! That's it PLAIN & SIMPLE!
it's kind of scary, because I keep expecting something bad to come out about him that will break my heart.
He's a mensch. That's what he is.
Has he been in a mayonnaise jar on Funk and Wagnell's porch since noon yesterday? (J. Carson refernece_
from the corruption that has infected everyone who has taken it. Or indeed, asked for it.
Not going to make that same bad decision ever again.
I love that word "mensch". You know one when you meet one--although the definition is very subjective.
So happy that our candidate is the epitome of a mensch.
Here. Let me help you with that.
I got your back.
I'm sorry. Forgive me.
That's wrong and it's got to stop.
We can do this.
You definitely know one when you hear one.
truly, deep down cares about ordinary people.
It's not a "focus group strategy". It comes from life long conviction.
I love the guy.
He probably doesn't even think about it. I mean, like, it never occurred to him NOT to help pay for his (required) special security and stuff.
.that video of somebody collapsing on stage when Bernie was at the podium speaking? He immediately ran over to help. I mean, ran. Other people stood around looking at the fallen person. You could tell it was such a deep instinct him to help. He didn't hesitate.
He's a classic.
--the more people witness an event like that, the more likely everyone is to stand around waiting for someone else to go first. He's breaking that mold for sure.
are a burden especially for towns and small cities. That Bernie did the right thing doesn't surprise me because that's how Bernie rolls.
Keep up the good work! Any other candidate who did that would make sure it was front page news - helping the taxpayers keep more money in their pockets. I'm sure Trump would be trumpeting himself to the skies, except that it would never cross whatever it is that passes for Trump's mind to do such a thing.
Are we feeling the Bern yet, everybody?
that people just want to PAY to see him, but that maybe he should be accountable for the expense a little town incurs and the effects that will have.
The rest suffer from privilege.
I am liking this man more every day.
They live in the bubble and talk to each other in the echo chamber.
They have become utterly tone deaf and unable to relate to the rest of us.
I can't say I'm surprised...if you are Bill or Hillary Clinton and your speaking fees yield an hourly income around $30,000 it has to be hard to maintain perspective and understand what real humanity looks like and does. To burden small Iowa communities with bills due to the campaigning and NOT kick in to pay for it is more than amoral...it begs the question, what exactly DO campaign contributions to them go for?
That there is no such thing as the "Democrat Party"
(....but with a name like the "Times-Republican" one shouldn't be too surprised, should one?)
the ONLY candidate with integrity.
You rock, Bernie!!!
Hmmm which reminds me , sure hope Hillary paid for her trip to Flint, they sure can't afford anything extra at the moment.
Bernie is the only candidate who doesn't feel entitled to special treatment.
This simple fact speaks to so much of what makes him special. Yet, he probably does not consider himself special.
Meanwhile, the entitled ones, the Hillaries, the Trumps, are a dime a dozen -- and are certain they're special.
I hope there's enough love, hope, energy, creativity, persistence, courage, honesty, generosity, versatility, cleverness, guts, strength, good fortune, and vision to take us all the way to a Sanders presidency.
but it's the Democratic party. Try to get that right. You managed to use the word in the first paragraph.
Regarding your article about Candidate visit costs
Dear Mr. Donahey,
I'm currently a speech-language pathologist, but my first degree/career was in journalism. Your above-mentioned article has two errors that I saw: First, you refer to Hillary Clinton as "Secreatary of State," most likely a typo, and second, you refer to Senator Sanders as seeking the nomination of the "Democrat" party. As you used it properly in a previous paragraph, you know it is the "Democratic" party. A person or candidate can be a Democrat, the party is the Democratic party.
I'm not sure if you have an editor, but if so, he or she should also be informed of the correct usage.
A few days ago, a winger had the nerve to say in my presence, the Democrat party.. I said what you did. "I'm a Democrat, my party is the Democratic Party. Certainly you're intelligent enough to know that." and I walked away. Of all their idiotic liberal bashing and bullshit, that one gets to me.
Democratic has a positive ring to it which is neutralized by reducing it to Democrat.
That is how The Clintons roll!
Has contributed to Bernie Because he is the only honest guy in the running!
until someone tries to spin this as a bribe for the favorable mention by the paper.
I love this guy, and every handful of shit the Clintons throw at him makes me love him even more.
She is Queen Hillary I after all.
Let the little people pay.
They should stop complaining and just eat their cake
I am sure that, as far as the expenses incurred by these various departments, she will be 'looking into it...' and no doubt has plans to 'get back to them later...'
probably with an 'offer' to pay her expenses as long as all the other candidates have paid theirs....
... unlike, you know, capitalism, which spreads the misery unequally.
under socialism it's the other way around.
This is an example of the difference between capitalism's privatists and capitalism's socialists. Bernie Sanders is the only candidate who saw the need to reimburse the city, because he is a democratic socialist and that is what democratic socialists do. Privatism's capitalists destroy the USA money supply and the USA economy; and socialism and socialists replenish the USA money supply and the USA economy in the same way as Bernie Sanders did in Marshalltown, Iowa. A good example and a good contrast of privatist vs socialist behavior.
