Who else is already sick of---

"Bernie can't win"

"Bernie is a socialist. Nobody I know will vote for a socialist."

"Bernie is like Ralph Nader" for contesting the Democratic primaries.

"Bernie will just weaken Hillary"

"Bernie isn't a Democrat"

"Voting for Bernie will make the Republicans win"

And maybe the worst,
"I agree with most everything Bernie says, but he doesn't stand a chance so why would I waste my vote"

Not just at D.U., quite a bit of the same on Facebook and Daily Kos also...

I guess we should just start posting.
"Hillary will just weaken Bernie, so she should get out of the race"....

Jeb Bush Supported Evangelical Anti-Gay Group With Taxpayer Money

While governor of Florida, Jeb Bush delivered a lucrative tax break to subsidize an evangelical group’s efforts to block Internet users from learning about homosexuality or accessing pornography. The taxpayer money was directed to a company owned by the American Family Association (AFA), a prominent grass-roots organization representing a social conservative base that could prove pivotal in the 2016 Republican presidential primaries.


$600,000 Tax Subsidy

It was May 2001, only a few years after a hot-button debate over congressional legislation aiming to censor the Internet of indecent content. Bush’s administration and Florida county officials agreed to award a $600,000 tax subsidy package to Bsafe Online, a subsidiary of the AFA. That company produced Web filter technology to prevent Internet users from seeing pornography or information about homosexual relationships or transgender identities.

“I welcome this high-tech, pro-family business to Florida,” Bush said in a news release. “As the Internet continues to influence our daily lives, parents have an increasingly difficult time monitoring what their children are exposed to on the computer. BsafeOnline.com is a great example of how the private sector can assist families to protect their children from aspects of the Internet which they deem negative.”

At the time, AFA was leading a boycott against the Walt Disney Co. for promoting the “gay agenda” and hosting “Gay Days” at its theme parks in Orlando, Florida. Liberal activists called on Bush to reverse his support for the AFA-backed company, BSafe, accusing the AFA of bigotry, recently released emails show. The organization was later labeled a “hate group” by the Southern Poverty Law Center.


In 2005, Bush faced criticism from the same AFA he helped subsidize -- the group would slam him for supporting an investment in a movie rental company that distributed pornography. And leaders of the religious right have lately questioned Bush’s commitment to their agenda. Since announcing he may run for president, Bush has sought to distance himself from some of his own past statements on homosexuality. In January, he disavowed an editorial he wrote in which he argued against creating “special legal protection” for “sodomy.” A Bush spokesperson told BuzzFeed the editorial “does not reflect Gov. Bush’s views now.”

Jeb Bush as FL Gov invested $1.3 million in state pension fund money in pornography, says report

Jeb Bush invested more than $1 million from the Florida state pension fund in pornography while he was governor, a new bombshell report alleges.

The former Florida governor, while in office, invested $1.3 million from the fund into Movie Gallery, a publicly traded video rental giant that offered a wide selection of pornographic films along with mainstream movies, the International Business Times reported.

Bush, who as governor was a trustee on the board overseeing the state’s $149 billion pension system, purchased more than 47,000 shares in the company in 2005, the Times reported, citing emails it obtained from Bush’s tenure in office.

The state later sold its Movie Gallery shares in 2006 after the stock didn’t perform as well as expected. Movie Gallery, which also owned all Hollywood Video franchises, closed up shop entirely in 2010 as the video and DVD rental business model faltered amid industry changes.

However, during the time the state owned the shares, social conservatives across Flordia and the nation were outraged — a problem that could resurface for the centrist Republican as he seeks the Republican 2016 presidential nomination in a field of candidates packed with outspoken social conservatives.

Get On Your Knees, Texas! OBAMA IS COMING!

Obama Plans to Invade Texas, Kidnap George W. Bush and Create A New Kingdom of Liberal Darkness

Texas Governor Greg Abott has placed the state on high alert: Barack Obama is invading the state on July 15th.

Officials in the state of Texas were alerted to Obama’s master plan to start a Civil War in America. While riling up racial tensions as seen in Baltimore, Maryland, and Ferguson, Missouri, out west Obama plans to take a more direct military approach.

Texas residents such as Chuck Norris are already organizing minutemen to prepare for an invasion, training locals in basic martial arts and self-defense.

Why is Texas so important for Obama’s plan to invade Western America and create a new kingdom of Liberal Darkness?

Texas has a Constitutional right to become five independent states from America without repercussion. Obama knows that if he can take over the state government of Texas, fix the ballots and make the state withdraw, he will suddenly have unfettered control of the world’s 10th most powerful economy.

This is why Obama is making pacts with Mexico and illegal immigrants. Those protected by Obama’s new amnesty plan are mercenaries from Mexico and South America. Obama is promising them that if they help him in his post-2016 efforts in America, then they will be treated as first class citizens.

Obama is code-naming his invasion of Texas as the Jade Helm 15, a code phrase named after a Egyptian false-god known as Thoth. On the 15th Jade Tablet erected above the entrance to his pyramid, Thoth had one of his high priests inscribe, ‘The day shall come, when my son shall also arise, and rebuild my kingdom, and my people shall again arise.’ Obama’s ties to Kenya and Egypt are well known, and there is sufficient evidence that proves Obama and his acolytes see him as a modern day god-king with supernatural ability.

((Uh, yeah, this IS satire just in case anyone had any doubts... Unless you're Tea-Party, then it's ABSOLUTELY THE TRUTH! YOU'VE BEEN WARNED!! ~John Poet))
