I know.. and, then if you speak up and say he's not the victim.. they try to turn it on us.

And, the OP of that thread was defending him. yes, poor will.. he's not the "bully".. it's everybody

else who was scorned.. and owed an apology for not buying into the scoop that "dick cheney will be indicted".

"It was cut by a law for which Bernie Sanders voted in 1994"

The Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act specifically prohibited the awarding of Pell Grants to "any individual who is incarcerated in any Federal or State penal institution."

Thanks Freddie

You have a comprehensive list there, BB, of things that aren't "important"

because .. Bernie.

And, they wouldn't be as note-worthy if he weren't touted to be so perfect and above reproach..

Except, of course, #BlackLivesMatter. That Matters above all.. no matter how many attacks many of his supporters spouted at #BlackLivesMatter Supporters, throughout the net, after they Protested @ Netroots Nation. That was ugly and mean spirited.

Yeah, they'll have their snipes.. they always have for 7 years and counting.. but, it means nothing.

President Obama is popular.. he's a great President and he could win again. Ha.

Too bad for them.

NYT writers should Always take Josh Marshall's Advice to his reporters..

How Did This Happen Exactly? - By Josh Marshall

Great advice from Josh Marshall.. especially to writers @ NYT..

"What I frequently tell reporters who I work with is to run this little thought experiment when you're about to publish a big piece or something a lot rides on. Pretend that the story blows up in your face. And you have to explain to me or your editor what went wrong. If you're the reporter in that case, you take your lumps but when you have that conversation you really want to be able to say and explain how you covered every base, checked every box on the list and it still went wrong. When you go through that exercise it often makes you think of some box that hasn't been checked that you really want to have checked if you find yourself in a real version of that hypothetical conversation."

You wouldn't think that poster could possibly be anymore insulting.. but, I wouldn't bet on it.

TM99
96. Yes, bluntly I believe that the AA and minority communities
View profile
are really know different than white communities. Politically speaking, they vote against their best self interests. They are very easily swayed by media propaganda. And often they are low information voters.

Given his history, given his voting record, and given his responses to minority concerns over the time frame in question, two months in, yes, I do think that is more the case.

And it is rich as fuck, that you continue to insult me and push the 'grow up' statement now. We are done here.

Like, the Black Community didn't fight and die for their Voting Rights.. and this guy comes along and insults them like this in the African American Group.

WTH.

Our Nation owes a great deal to the African American Voters for standing in long lines for hours.. and helping so much to get Obama elected President twice! And, I am forever grateful.

So did you guys Ever get an apology? or just ".. haven't you ever made a mistake... blah blah.."?
