America, Anaconda, and Bernie Sanders: Bernie Sanders @SenSanders There's no state where a full-time minimum wage worker can afford a one-bedroom apartment at the fair market rent. That's unacceptable. 4/10/17, 3:51 PM 5,379 RETWEETS 14.2K LIKES pidgepitchu: strict-constitutionalist: constitutioncutie: Minimum wage: $7.25 $7.25 x 40 hour full time work week: $290 $290 x 4 weeks per month: $1,160 In every Southern state (didn’t have time to look at the rest of the country) you can find some sort of studio apartment for around $500 per month, sometimes less than that. Why bother lying about something so easily disproven?  Because Bernie Sanders supporters aren’t going to fact check him, and they’ll ignore any contrary evidence that’s presented to them anyways. Things like this really tick me off and It’s not political or anything but it’s the fact that you think all that money is there. Here’s what I mean; That weekly check comes to, according to you, 290. Most places DO NOT pay for your half hour lunch that is required by law. So your beginning number was wrong. $7.25 x 7.5 hours a day x 5 days a week only gets you $271.88.  Most people in America get paid bi-weekly, so let’s double it to get the budget. $543.75. That’s GROSS, not NET. Out of that comes anywhere between 10% and 15% taxes depending on state so we’ll low ball it at 10%. Automatically down to $489.38 a pay check. Now health insurance. Usually anywhere from 70-100 a pay check for the cheapest plans. Again, we’ll low ball and go $70. So now we have $419.39 a paycheck. x 2  = $839.  Eight hundred thirty nine dollars. A MONTH. But again, you seem to think that’s fair. So let’s proceed. You say rent is $500? Okay. This person now has $339 left to buy groceries for the whole month, pay utilities, car payment, car insurance, and gas money to get to work.  Those are the bare needs. You have to eat. You have to pay for heat, water, garbage removal, gas and or electricity because apartments do not always include things and rarely all of the above. Most cities in America do not have public transportation. Mine doesn’t despite the fact that our population is over 15,000 people, not counting a taxi. If you have a car, you have to pay that. If you have a car, legally you have to have car insurance. You have to pay that. You have to have gas in that car to get to work to make that money. Now if you can tell me you can get all of that out of $339 you’re lying. You are so focused on rent that you aren’t thinking about everything else people have to pay for. Rent was an example. This is a breakdown of the budget you gave me and it’s not possible to live off that in 2017 America.  And BECAUSE this person makes over $800 a month, they probably won’t qualify for financial aid or food stamps. $800 is the line in my state where they won’t help you. No food stamps, financial aid, or government housing if you make more than $800 a month.  Why does it bother you that people deserve to live above the poverty line?

It takes a certain amount of privilege to not even think about folks without living wages needing money to eat as well as have water, electricity, and transportation among so many other basic necessities.

America, Bernie Sanders, and Children: BERNIE SANDERS FACTS: 1. Bernie Sanders has never owned a business 2. Bernie Sanders has never invented anything or started a business 3. Bernie Sanders has never had a 9-to-5 job 4. Bernie Sanders has never proposed a bill that has passed in over 26-years 5. Bernie Sanders lived off of welfare before being elected 6. Bernie Sanders is 74-years old 7. Bernie Sanders has a net worth of only $300,000 8. The overwhelming majority of Bernie Sanders supporters are not employed 9. The overwhelming majority of Bernie Sanders supporters receive financial aid to live SUMMARY: The next president United States could well be elected by voters who don't work but receive financial aid to give that money to a man who's never held an actual job has done nothing in his life that he can put his name on, and who has never authored a political bill that's passed a single vote THIS DOESN'T SOLVE AMERICA'S PROBLEMS.

It took him 40 years to collect his first steady paycheck — and it was a government check. <br/></i></p> <p><i>‘I never had any money my entire life,’ Sanders told Vermont public TV in 1985, after settling into his first real job as mayor of Burlington.<br/></i></p> <p><i>Sanders spent most of his life as an angry radical and agitator who never accomplished much of anything. And yet now he thinks he deserves the power to run your life and your finances — ‘We will raise taxes;’ he confirmed Monday, ‘yes, we will.’</i></p> <p><i>One of his first jobs was registering people for food stamps, and it was all downhill from there.</i></p> <p><i>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 shitty carpenter,’ a friend <a href="http://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2015/07/bernie-sanders-vermont-119927">told Politico Magazine</a>. ‘His carpentry was not going to support him, and didn’t.’</i></p> <p><i>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.’</i></p> <p><i>The only thing he was good at was talking … non-stop … about socialism and how the rich were ripping everybody off. ‘The whole quality of life in America is based on greed,’ the bitter layabout said. ‘I believe in the redistribution of wealth in this nation</i>.’</p> <p><i>So he tried politics, starting his own socialist party. Four times he ran for Vermont public office, and four times he lost — badly. He never attracted more than single-digit support — even in the People’s Republic of Vermont. In his 1971 bid for U.S. Senate, the local press said the 30-year-old “Sanders describes himself as a carpenter who has worked with ‘disturbed children.’ ” In other words, a real winne</i>r.”</p> <p>From the Washington Post article “<a href="https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-fix/wp/2015/04/30/bernie-sanders-from-hippie-migrant-to-would-be-president/">Bernie Sanders: from Migrant Hippie to Would-Be President</a>”:</p> <p>“<i>He worked there as a carpenter, filmmaker and writer and became a member of socialist Liberty Union Party</i>.”</p> <p>A carpenter?

It was called Creative Carpentry, and Rader says that it was accurately named: “They advertised in the Village Voice, but didn’t know much about carpentry. They’d go to the hardware store to buy supplies, and ask the clerk how to do the repairs they’d been hired to do</i>.” <br/></p> <p>For anyone curious, a kibbutz is basically a commune or as I like to call them “pinko farms.”</p> <p>Here are a couple other links of interest:</p> <ul><li>MSNBC - <a href="http://www.msnbc.com/msnbc/the-25-best-things-we-learned-bernie-sanders-book">The 25 best things we learned from Bernie Sanders’ book</a><br/></li> <li> <a href="https://ballotpedia.org/Bernie_Sanders">BallotPedia - Bernie Sanders</a><br/></li> <li>NPR - <a href="http://www.npr.org/sections/itsallpolitics/2015/07/08/421151627/sanders-among-the-least-wealthy-presidential-candidates">Sanders Among The Least Wealthy Presidential Candidates</a> (although this is still questionable without 2015 tax returns [<a href="https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/post-politics/wp/2015/06/30/on-tax-returns-sanders-and-wife-report-200000-in-income-mostly-from-his-senate-post/">1</a>] [<a href="http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2016/02/how_rich_is_bernie_sanders.html">2</a>])<br/></li> <li>Breitbart -  <a href="http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2016/02/26/bernie-sanders-touts-working-people-while-unverified-unemployed-fill-his-coffers/">Bernie Sanders Touts ‘Working People’ While Unverified ‘Unemployed’ Fill His Coffers</a><br/></li> <li> <a href="https://www.isidewith.com/2016-democratic-primary-poll/801555698/289924208">2016 Democratic Primary Results from Income (Less than $25K) voters</a><br/></li> </ul><p>I believe the only statement above that isn’t accurate is the sponsored legislation that became law.  <a href="https://www.congress.gov/member/bernard-sanders/S000033?q=%7B%22sponsorship%22%3A%22sponsored%22%2C%22bill-status%22%3A%5B%22law%22%5D%7D">Three pieces of legislation</a> he sponsored were passed.</p> <p>Bernie…not even once.</p> <figure class="tmblr-full" data-orig-height="239" data-orig-width="425"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/684c6ea02617166f192a8310a27fd162/tumblr_inline_o3r5lyEXnj1r1jtxd_500.gif" data-orig-height="239" data-orig-width="425"/></figure></blockquote> <p>A man who dances like that has no business in the White House.</p>

Bernie Sanders, College, and Girls: "So it's most women by the standard of most men, because they re going to get more activistas theyget older. And when you're young youre thinking Where are the boysThe boys are with Bernie to measure history-is-poetry: Madeleine Albright ArticleGloria Steinmen ArticleMillennial women: we are a threat to Hilary’s campaign. Over the last two days two popular feminists have made statements insulting and berating those that identify as women for not supporting Hilary. It has become clear that they are trying to guilt us for our convictions. The first quote from Madeline Albright is thrown around a lot as a guilt tactic. She’s suggesting that as a woman I have an inane responsibility to vote for another woman, no matter what my personal beliefs or convictions are. This is not only insulting to female supporters of other candidates, but insulting to Hilary and her current supporters. If Hilary wins people will try it say it was only because she’s a woman. If you support Hilary it’s because you’re blindly voting on gender. You don’t have a brain, mind, or opinions other than whether or not you’re voting for a woman. The 2nd quote is from Gloria Steinem. Gloria was asked why young women seemed to be supporting Bernie Sanders more in the polls. Steinem had the audacity to claim that it was not only because we want to impress men, but ALSO because we aren’t “activists” yet. Are you kidding me? An acclaimed feminist is quoting the rhetoric that women do something for the soul purpose of impressing boys? Not only is that extremely sexist and cisheteronormative; but its the same sentiment that women have been fighting against for years. Its the same thought process that female sport fans/players exist solely to impress guys. That girls go to college to find husband’s. Suggesting that young adult female voters are too incompetent to learn about candidates and to make an informed objective decision is absolutely ridiculous. Furthermore, Bernie Sanders is advocating for very progressive change. So to suggest his supporters aren’t true activists yet is so extremely obtuse and ageist. So young people: I’d like to remind you that you’re a threat. The Clinton campaign knows that as young feminists we may feel guilty not voting for a woman. Stand with your convictions. Whether you’re a Hilary supporter or a Bernie supporter know that your vote is more. Its more than voting on gender, and its more than voting to impress men. It’s voting to see the kind of country that reflects your values and political beliefs. Ignore the impending smear campaign against us that is ahead.
