1. Bernie doesn't strike me as the sort of guy to bring a plan forward without some pretty hefty

support from smart people.

3. What's the big deal

How many of these so-called "experts" represented Wall Street in the Senate after Nine Eleven?

Nine Eleven! Nine Eleven!

4. Richard Wolff signed it. That is a true seal of approval from the hard core economist.

We might end up with a compassionate economy yet. America, friendly? One can dream.

5. notice how Brad's the only former elected official? others are skeered of payback

He's always put ethics ahead of personal advancement, which is why he got redistricted out of his seat, of course.

13. Well...... They have been told to "cut it out" and I think that monumental task

 

has already been completed with a few nods of some insignificant financial heads. Asked and Answered. Told and Accomplished. Yeah, OK.

So, I'll go for the "almost nothing" option. It took a lot of courage for her to face them down like she did, you know.

14. That's going to leave a mark. There have been some busy beavers in Sander's campaign

 

offices. These aren't Loony Lefty Liberals, or even Socialists. What shall we get him on now?

Guns NRA=D-
Health Care ... $161 per week for the Bottom 90 something%
Financial Services ... done and signed off
Racial Justice ... the Brown and Black Convention, going on an All-Black College Tour ... check
Voters ... rising quickly in the polls among most all categories.
Iowa/NH ... possible wins

Getting good vibes.
