Bernie Sanders is a hero, I've always admired him but after hearing him at Fighting Bob Fest, I admire him even more. To see him on TV speaking truth to power, I am proud to have him in the Senate. Too bad that Feingold isn't there to help him. To see Ron Johnson in his place is a sad time indeed for this state.
It seems quite apparent to me that the function of governments as demonstrated by current administrations throughout the world is not the nurturing and sustaining the welfare of its citizens but supporting and funding of the financial institutions. How else can the disregard for the well being of not only the least among us but the majority of its citizens be explained. Throughout the world they are being told by both the IMF and World Bank that the citizens must sacrifice what little they may have to bolster their economies (big banks) to prevent economic failures. For those who have little today the cost of sacrifice is unacceptable.
There are no longer impediments to corporations so they have successfully managed a coup d' etat. What we are witnessing are the remnants of an anemic government making decisions at the behest of corporations and the wealthy. Only a few exceptions exist in the likes of the venerable Bernie Sanders. Time to end this game of political charades. Perhaps it's time for the rebellion to kick into high gear. In doing so, we can protect our dignity and hopefully avoid letting despair rule the day.
The incompetence of conservative never ceases to amaze me. These folks aren't resigned to solving problems or even offering solutions. They are out to destroy everything they can. Watch when this is over. Corporations and the wealthy will come out ahead. It's their plan, not that of Boehner that matters. We're witnesses to the destruction of democracy so their capitalism can reign.
