2.6 to 10 million votes available at the flip of a switch to any candidate favored by a select few Silicon Valley billionaires (likely Democrats, of course) is quite similar to the days of Boss Tweed, who famously was only interested in who had the job of counting the votes.

Booty Judge Pandering to the non-white vote, apologizing for his “white privilege”.

Listening to several news outlets yesterday, including Fox. Seems to all of them the big contenders are now Biden, Harris, Bernie and Buttigieg. All the others mentioned as minor candidates. As we saw with 2016, the media has a way of shaping who the front runners are.

It's easy for them to do that. All they do is ignore everyone else... If it isn't reported on the "news" it never happened, right? We see a lot of the same with the defensive use of firearms. We know it happens, but no one knows about it.

The media WANTS Harris but they will settle for Biden if he keeps his gaffe machine in check.

I wish Marianne Williamson was his biggest threat because I just love listening to her on stage. Her and Trump in a debate would be epic. Her first debate she told Trump she would "politicize love," which is probably against FEC regulations (LOL) but I'd love to see her try.

She is pretty groovy man. She needs a seat at the table, perhaps Secretary of Essential Oils. I don't think she is mean spirited and however misguided some of her ideas are I do like that she is spiritual, into love and happiness, and pretty hot for 67.

This is from today:

Bernout is done. They are just trying to slow down a sinking ship at this point.

Bernie Sanders campaign announces it will cut hours to pay staffers $15 minimum wage,

^^^Yeah Bernie is toast. So he's gonna cut his staffs hours in order to pay for $15/hr minimum.

Democrat presidential candidate Bernie Sanders announced this weekend he will cut staffers' hours so that they can effectively be paid a $15-an-hour minimum wage, prompting mockery from critics who say the move is more evidence that Sanders' plan to raise the national minimum wage is hypocritical and would only lead to less work and more unemployment.

FEEL THE BERN!!!

Who will his disillusioned minions follow now in their socialist quest for equality??

No no, it’s all good. He’s going to limit the number of hours his employees work so they get more time off and the equivalent of $15/hour...of course, since this is a campaign the work will still need to be done...so more people will need to be hired...and paid $15/hour...but that’s ok! All that needs to happen to make this work is you, yes YOU need to donate to the Bernster to help him make payroll...all he needs is more of someone else’s money...

There is so much utter hilarity, rank hypocrisy and sheer ignorance in that article it boggles the mind.

Even if he manages to pay them $15/hr it’s still someone in the top 1% paying his employees what he believes should be minimum wage. Something that wouldn’t be ok for anyone else.

So as I read it, they won't be getting a pay raise, they'll just be working less hours for the same weekly pay check?

Equivalent to $15 an hour is going to be the new buzz phrase. It's either $15 an hour or it's not, hypocritical double talk.

If Bernie believes his message is needed, let him pay his drones out of his own pocket.

That may be the new buzzword, but the tactic won’t be new. Total compensation is always looked at and is all that matters in the end. They will just move the cost somewhere else, like insurance, which will result in a break even, if not financial loss for the employees.

“Due to increased ER visits, our insurance costs are rising and we have no choice but to ask the employees to help share this cost. Thank you for understanding.”

I can’t say I feel bad for anyone who would want to work on his campaign who is getting paid shit money.

That’s what I got from it- guessing they get a stipend but were putting in lots of hours...like happens on political campaigns.

Now they’ll still be getting a stipend but at only 42 hours/week it’ll be “equivalent” to $15/hour. That’s my take on it at least. On the plus side ol’ bernout now will waste his supporters money even faster and have to beg for more sooner...good times!

Yes but if you're a true believer....you won't mind putting in those 'extra hours' above your allotted pay grade because you know...altruism.
