OK, Evil DUers: What do we do about Martin Shkreli and Turing Pharmaceuticals?

I've calmed down enough that want to get serious about this? Let's put our thinking caps on.

The goal is to sink Turing and lighten Shkreli's pocketbook.

Can we get a Boycott and Divestment movement going? Are there other assets this bastard holds that can be targeted?

Ideas are welcome. If your going to suggest anything less than legal, at least have the courtesy to suggest something that would be consistent with the spirit of nonviolent civil disobedience.

Well, my fellow Sandernistas, it's been a pretty good week, has it not?

We've got the positive feedback from the Liberty U appearance, another million dollars raised and Bernie continuing to rise in the polls.

Furthermore, we should consider it a positive sign that the establishment has stopped ignoring Bernie and have moved on to attacking him. It sounds like they're trying to smear him as a socialist. Now, against any other Democrat, that would just be ridiculous. Remember, the Republicans are the same people who are still trying to convince us that President Obama is a socialist. In Bernie's case, calling him a socialist is no more a smear than would be calling him a Jew. If any wants to know if Bernie is a socialist, he doesn't need Republicans or Third Way Democrats to tell him. One need only ask Bernie and he will tell you that he is a socialist.

By 2015, thirty-five years after the introduction of Reaganomics (called the Third Way or neoliberalism by it adherents in the Democratic Party), Bernie's socialism looks like a good thing. It's not Mao or Stalin, although the establishment will try hard to make it look that way; it's the socialism of Clement Atlee or Olof Palme. It's certainly better to think about a future where criminal bankers go to jail, industrial polluters are told to clean up their mess and we can call a spade a spade and refer to large corporate campaign contributions as bribes than to face another thirty-five years of the status quo in which factory are shut down and college graduates have more debt than job prospects.

Overturn Citizens United, stop "free" trade, end endless wars and preserve justice and democracy. Vote for Bernie!
