So you like Bernie's "Medicare for all" proposals, right?  No more high health insurance bills, no more of the nonsense that you're going through now -- including, if you're young, paying a lot of money for (probably) nothing.

Just like you love Bernie's college plans, right?

Ok, let's do a fact check.

The VA is Bernie Sander's health care model.  It's a socialized medical system for American Veterans.

How's it doing?

The VA's inspector general found that out of about 800,000 records stalled in the agency's system for managing health care enrollment, there were more than 307,000 records that belonged to veterans who had died months or years in the past. The inspector general said due to limitations in the system's data, the number of records did not necessarily represent veterans actively seeking enrollment in VA health care.

In other words 300,000 people may have died while waiting for your utopian care model.

There's a further problem for Sanders supporters -- have you looked at Sander's committee seats?

That's right folks -- Bernie Sanders is on the Veterans Affairs Senate Committee -- the committee that is responsible for the VA health system.

You're not dumb enough to actually want for yourself what has been done to 300,000 vets under Bernie's direct stewardship, are you?

Fiorina is done, and apparently Christie is also going to quit.

The field narrows..... Fiorina never had a decent shot at anything, nor should she have.  She's simply not competent to play at this game, nor has she ever been able to put forward an articulated policy position that makes sense in aggregate.  Before I disagree with you I have to understand what you're proposing! 

Christie, on the other hand, is the worst of establishment politicians.  Thuggish in both appearance and action, he has no place on such a stage either, and the voters want none of him.  Good.

Now where are the journalists that will demand to see that CRBA from Cruz, and what the hell does Bush think he's doing given his documented failures, most-particularly his intentional refusal to put a stop to illegally-present persons from getting Florida Driver licenses, without which 9/11 might not have happened at all.

New Hampshire was interesting from one aspect that a few are talking about, but everyone on the left ought to be paying attention to.

She won exactly one demographic over Sanders: Those with annual incomes over $250,000.

That was it.

We can safely call those the Bribery Class, because it pretty-much is when it comes to political "contributions" of various sorts.

Something to think about.....

Trump 35, Kasich 16Cruz badly behind at 12.

Sanders over Clinton 58-40.

Cruz took a shot to the nuts after Iowa and Kasich came out of nowhere.

It just takes time for an ******* to out himself.  You can suspect, but given enough time and an open microphone, someone who holds racist views will eventually do him or herself in -- all you have to do is wait.

According to The Aspen Times, Bloomberg addressed a variety of topics, and after commenting on poverty and education, he discussed guns. The Times reported that he said, “Cities need to get guns out of [the] … hands” of persons who are “male, minority, and between the ages of 15 and 25.”

So you don't have Constitutional Rights if you're male and minority.  In other words, in the context of New York and most other cities, black and latino.

Got it folks?

There's your ugly white bastard telling you straight-up, out of his own mouth, he's a racist prick.

The truth is that if you're consigned to live in a high-crime area due to poverty -- or any other reason -- the Second Amendment's existence suddenly becomes critical to your life and safety, because only through the personal possession of arms are the odds against thugs evened.

PS: You forgot your white sheet with the cut-out eyeholes, Mr. Mayor....
