Wikipedia's Bernie Sanders Fantasy

I noticed a few slight discrepancies between Bernie Sanders' history on wikipedia, and a few other publications. Here's one from his earlier life. Wikipedia:

"They married in 1964 and bought a summer home in Vermont; they had no children and divorced in 1966"

The Spectator:

"Sanders took his first bride to live in a maple sugar shack with a dirt floor, and she soon left him. Penniless, he went on unemployment."

A slight departure from the academic shills that maintain Wikipedia, isn't it?

Here's another whopper from Wikipedia:

"In 1968, Sanders moved to Vermont because he had been "captivated by rural life." After his arrival there he worked as a carpenter, filmmaker, and writer"

The Spectator:

"One of his first jobs was registering people for food stamps, and it was all downhill from there."
Sanders took his first bride to live in a maple sugar shack with a dirt floor, and she soon left him. Penniless, he went on unemployment. Then he had a child out of wedlock. Desperate, he tried carpentry but could barely sink a nail. “He was a shi**y carpenter,” a friend told Politico Magazine. “His carpentry was not going to support him, and didn’t.”
Then he tried his hand freelancing for leftist rags, writing about “masturbation and rape” and other crudities for $50 a story. He drove around in a rusted-out, Bondo-covered VW bug with no working windshield wipers. Friends said he was “always poor” and his “electricity was turned off a lot.” They described him as a slob who kept a messy apartment — and this is what his friends had to say about him."

By reading his Wikipedia history, you'd think he was a decent guy, married young and divorced, did some odd jobs and then straightened his life out. The reality was, that he was a bum, who couldn't hold down a job, support a wife, or make it in the private sector. So what does he do? He becomes a leftist politician, of course!

This is why the occupiers, millennials who are living in their mommy's basements, and all the rest of the entitled 48% that pay no income tax are feeling the Bern. And why they have lots of time to edit and control Wikipedia.

Google snubs our fallen soldiers, more bay area's how I'm celebrating

Coverage about Google snubbing our fallen:

Here's how I'm paying Google back:

Paul Krugman: What’s behind this success? His hilarious assessment of the VA in 2011

This would be funny, if people weren't dead:

"...And yes, this is “socialized medicine” — although some private systems, like Kaiser Permanente, share many of the V.H.A.’s virtues. But it works — and suggests what it will take to solve the troubles of U.S. health care more broadly."

Yes, it is a socialized medicine disaster. Thank God it was "overhauled" during the Clinton administration. Good job Clintons! I'm looking forward to your third term, when you finish the job.

Saturday, May 28, 2016 The collapse of Venezuela isn't due to Socialism...its just bad currency management...

It wasn't the price controls, the nationalization of industry and subsequent poor management of those state-owned businesses. It wasn't the huge amounts of money given to the poor, and out of control spending. No, no, it was just currency mismanagement.

Does Venezuela’s Crisis Prove Socialism Doesn’t Work?

No, no, we just need another hundred examples. Next time, we'll do it right! Even though the public sector can't run a hot dog stand without losing money. Even while this clown of a writer is sitting in his apartment, without electricity, he's still hooked on socialism. These journalists are hooked on socialism like it's heroin or something. Apparently starving to death, isn't the bottom yet. The amazing thing to me, is that 30% of the people in Venezuela still support Maduro. That means that you can kill off your own population with a failed state, and 30% of them will still think you're OK. Which also explains Obama's approval ratings.

First woman in Tennessee to enlist as combat engineer goes AWOL

..."She left her husband and two children in September of 2015 for basic training where she was learning to build bridges, detonate artillery, and detect roadside bombs under combat conditions. She said, "You make sacrifices your whole life for your children and for your family, this will be a sacrifice... Women can do anything they set their mind to just as well as men I don't really see any difference at all. I hope women will want to join."

Arizona Prop 123....another education scam

For all the cheerleading on prop 123 here in Arizona, you'd think it was the best thing since sliced bread. The establishment RINOs won't comment about it. Which should make you immediately suspect it. It's basically stealing land to pay for an unsustainable system: Arizona's public education system. As an exercise, I calculated the amount of my property and state income tax, and how much of that goes for education:

That's right folks, a whopping 56% already goes to educate someone else's kids (since I don't have any). A lot of illegals. You can't send your kids to the local public schools here in Phoenix, they'll get killed. So to add insult to injury, your paying 56% of your taxes, to schools that you can't send your kids to.

Maybe they're quality schools though.

Nope, Arizona ranked 47th in nation for education last year.

So your spending 56% of your taxes, for horrible schools, and its not enough. I think its quite enough. In fact, I've had about enough.
