    Called their complaints of poverty wages and long hours "inappropriate" as clearly, it's breaking a cardinal rule to make a good socialist look bad.

    Bernie Sanders defends campaign staff salaries after accusations of 'poverty wages'

    It's the prime example of what socialist Democrats do. Expect it.

    Lie and swindle people with no intention of keeping any promises, because there's really nothing in it for socialist Bernie Sanders that benefits himself.

    What an ungrateful staff. They should know socialist Bernie Sanders would care of them on the same premise that he said he would take care of the nation with living wages and proper Healthcare.
    It's just someday, not today.

    Yeaaaaa...... The perfect example of a man who does for his own, what he promises to others.

    Welcome to Democrat Socialism. The way of the future.

    You may not agree with his politics, but you have to admit that in the run-up to the last election he didn't get into the gutter with the other candidates and sling mud. He told you straight up what he was about. It was a breath of fresh air IMO.

    That had arguably ended with JFK.

    Why?
    There have been a lot of good democratic presidents then republicans. Just look at Bush senior and junior. And Trump. All of them bad presidents for America and for world peace

    Our country is a lot safer because of Bush Senior and Junior and President Trump.

    I don't recall any coordinated attacks on US soil since 9/11.

    It's the current Pub mantra to attack "socialism", and yet I doubt very much if most who use it really understand what "socialism" is or isn't.

    For examples, is socialism a political or economic system? Is Sweden, for example, a "socialist" country? Is China (PRoC) a "socialist" country, and if it is, then why has it grown much faster economically over the last couple of decades than the U.S. if "socialism" doesn't work? Is the U.S. a "socialist" country? If one is against "socialism" and lives here in the States, then will the anti-socialists collect on their Social Security, Medicare, or even expect the United States Armed Services to defend them since these all are "socialistic" programs run by the fed and financed through taxes for the benefit of all, which is what "socialism" is? Maybe some should even look up the Wiki article on "socialism" to see how diverse it really is.

    The bottom line: all countries today have what we call "mixed economies", and that is a blend of capitalistic and socialistic programs. So, for one to say the "socialism" is somehow evil and that it doesn't work is complete nonsense. However, that won't stop the Pub fear-mongering.

    I didn't think George HW was all that bad. He practiced restraint in not going into Iraq when he had the chance, and he, knowing it would cost him his 2nd term, raised taxes breaking a campaign promise.

    For the record, I do tend to agree with you. And compared to Trump, who both Bush's strongly disliked, he was a saint.

    Well, I guess his campaign workers can always organize and go on strike. That would be interesting.

    Who was president at the time of 9/11?. Little Reminder, Bush was. Who made a the world unsafe by attacking Iraq, Afghanistan, ? Bush did.
    So no Bush did not do a good job

    This is true. I don't agree with a lot of what he says, but I do think he was the most genuine candidate in the last election.

    His workers are unionized, make 15$ per hour and have complained. That's what its about.

    Seriously. I have concluded that there is nothing a democrat can do that won't somehow draw the wrath of Fox News and forum conservatives respectively.

    This just shows why you need to have a 15 dollar minimum wage to protect employees from unscrupulous employers like Sanders.
