Alert Bernie is a poltician

A shocking revelation- Bernie sanders is a politician I can see how one can make the argument that Ralph Nader and Elizabeth Warrren are not politicians. Even though Nader has been around politics he has never held an office and Warren is a later entrant.

Bernie has had one job his entire life. Prior to being a mayor he couldn't even hold a steady job and had his electricity turned of a number of times.

So when you go to the Vatican you are committing a political move. He is a politician.

Honestly, Bernie going to the Vatican

is just a cheap political stunt. Even you Bernie supporters have to agree with that. Like he would do this December. He is only doing it for the NY primary.

New Yorkers are pretty savvy. This does work over in republican land where the Jesus card is always used.

bernie Cracks

If bernie reacted like this to what he mistook as an attack .What happens if he is the nominee and he gets the full broadside of the republican attack. It would be bloody and messy.
This is what he was taught as a child when he saw his Dad be crushed by what he saw as slights and then went to "Death of a salesman" and was torn apart.
Your parents teach you how to be tough.
I will always be grateful to my Mom and Dad who taught me never to wallow in self pity. To survive growing up in the back of a laundry. To fight against all odds and to keep your head high no matter what happens.

bernie and basketball redux

With bernie's comments about Hilary yesterday we see the true personality come out. elbows are dirty and "Give me the ball" is me me me and selfish. It is amazing how a game of basketball tell you everything about someone.

When Michelle was first dating Barack and brought him home to meet the family she had her brother Craig take him out to play basketball. it was not to find out if he could play it was to find out his character. Basketball exposes everything about your personality because you go into an unvarnished representation of yourself. The game's intricacies will expose everything about you. how you share, how you sacrifice, how competitive you are and how honest you are.

Pickup basketball is a game of honesty because there are no ref's. You call fouls (my foul) and violations on yourself. There are two things you never do one is use your elbows and the second is too submarine someone. Both are flagrant attempts to injure your opponent. Do it in a game and watch out a fight is brewing.

On defense you talk all the time (switch and slide are for picks, mine for rebounds and I've got him for fastbreaks). offense is quiet. No one really talks because talking alerts defenses to your position. you want to fly under the radar. there are 2 basic plays pick and roll and give and go.

Ask trumad and Joeybee. Over in sports I am the resident basketball guy.

I played thousands of games with some very good competition. Here is one of my regular people I played with.


She was rookie of the year in the first woman's basketball league. She shot 80% from 18 ft. and she never called for the ball. Bob Cemak and I walked over to her and asked if she wanted to play in 1983 at the Sporting club on sheridan in Atlanta. We played for years together. she was a better athlete than me.

This brings up Bernie. I saw his video. He is an old fifties player before jumpshots. Jumpshots weren't really a part of basketball until the sixties. two handed set shots before the sixties (look at old tapes)
here is a story on bernie


“He was crafty.”

“He had good elbows.”

“Give me da bawwwwwwl!”

Two of his quotes. He knew how to move without the ball which is "crafty"

However he used his elbows which is definitely dirty and he called for the ball( look at me).

No one with class uses his elbows and no one really calls for the ball unless it is about me.

Go ask anyone who played ball into their forties what they think about people who use their elbows and call for the ball. You will find a pretty universal condemnation of that player.

I guess to me this tells me everything I need to know about bernie.

Obamacare is not perfect

but it a hell of a lot better than what we had before. No pre-existing conditions is huge as is no cap. Yes, there are some negatives. It is meant to help people who have less money with subsidies. It is not meant to help you pay for healthcare if you retire in your fifties.

If you retire in your fifties then you should expect to pay for your own healthcare and not ask the populous to support you so you can travel. I personally own my own business and I pay $1900 a month and I am 64.
