I'm feelin the Bern, here, although I don't see Iran helping greatly against ISIS. Plus, It's too late for the US to take out Assad. Nothing good will come of it now.

Then you don't understand much about it. Iran is a natural enemy to ISIS. Unlike Saudi Arabia, our "ally"

Not so much "ally," as much as our "oil source."

What I mean is I can see Iran fighting ISIS; I can't see them subduing ISIS. Especially when ISIS is not in Iran itself.

I never said that.

She doesn't have to win. She just has to create enough doubt in swing voters minds that Bernie Sanders is not as consistent as he wants to claim (and is claiming). She has to prove that Sanders is a politician as much as she is. That's all she has to do. And ringing him on gun control and wall street are the most effective ways to do so.

Also interesting article here - https://www.yahoo.com/politics/bernie-sanders-radical-past-how-the-vermont-230255076.html

Apparently the Social-Democrat used to be even more extreme?? More oppo-research for Clinton to dump on Iowa and New Hampshire to get moderate Democrats. Wait a minute....there are no moderate democrats.

Watched the first half a bit more, I don't like the continuous attacks on groups such as the Police, pharmaceuticals and the rich. No recgonition that these people are the ones that keep the country running, no recognition of their contribution to society, just continually playing the 'they bully us ' card. There is little discussion on the advancing the economy, on inspiring innovation but mainly discussing how the people are being oppressed or denied rights and policies to help them .

Sanders - Makes the same points over and over again. But a much more effective and natural speaker than Clinton nevertheless. Appeals well to the audience when speaking about his trademark wall street and political corruption. Was a bit waffly when talking about taxing the middle class to fund his healthcare plans, but ended up giving a strong answer.

Clinton - Too Hilary-Clintony, too fake and phony. I keep getting the impression that she says many things to bait for applause and score political points. She seems to be memorising too many of her arguments, memorising who voted for what in what year to help push a point, looking down on her notes all the time doesn't help. Did very well on the debate about affordable care act, portrayed it as a proud final product of previous democrat governments and how she is trying to protect the legacy, and I think it appeals very well to Democratic voters.

+1. I wouldn't have such a problem with it if they mentioned specific people by name. For example with pharmaceuticals they could have mentioned and attacked Martin Shkreli, but that would defeat the purpose of their rhetoric.

62 people owns as much as half the world's population combined, 3.5 Billion people. Yeah lets pretends that's normal and ethical. We should cut some slack to these poor billionairs. And lets sell 2$ pills for 700+$, coz you know,this yatch ain't gonna buy itself. And we should let all the wall streets golden boys gamble with small people's money, who cares if they lose it, the government is gonna bail them out anyway, and gambling is fun. And most important, we should let the billionairs legaly buy politicians, to insure that the system stays that way.

@jai

you are kidding right? it would take months...


Just today, i started a new job, and since i didn't have any mission yet, i was asked to read some stuff about a software called "Readsoft", wich i'll use in upcoming missions. So after i read about how the software works, i went on and read about the company itself. Turns out they were bought buy another company last year, called "Lexmark". So i went ahead and read the tender offer Lexmark issued on their website, when they disclosed that they made an offer to buy Readsoft. I read that:

This tender offer for the shares of ReadSoft demonstrates the consistent execution of Lexmark's capital allocation framework, which is to pursue acquisitions that strengthen and support the growth of Lexmark solutions capabilities, while returning more than 50 percent of free cash flow to shareholders, on average, through quarterly dividends and share repurchases. Since the first quarter of 2011, Lexmark has returned to shareholders $733 million in the form of dividends and share repurchases.


now lets go to wikipedia to see what it says about Lexmark:

- In September 2014, Lexmark acquired Stockholm, Sweden-based ReadSoft for $251 Million

- In May 2015, Lexmark announced that it had acquired Kofax for roughly $1 Billion

- In December 2015, Lexmark announced that they were losing $5,2 Million dollars in the 3rd trimester of 2015, and would have to lay off 500 people in the next 18 months. After hiring Goldman Sachs in October to "Explore Strategic Options"


Yeah...cut them some slack my ass

Hitchslap this is exactly my point though. If all they do is rail against Pharmaceutical companies and businesses without concrete examples, names, and figures then its just empty rhetoric!! That's why I said they shouldn't treat these institutions as nameless and faceless figures. Every person on wall street isn't bad. Every person who works for a pharmaceutical company isn't satan incarnate. Many of the people who work for pharmaceutical companies are scientists trying to make a difference. They aren't the ones controlling the price of the drugs. I find Bernie and Hillary's attempt to demonize a whole sector of the economy simply because they are employed by bad people to be utterly disgraceful.

Also the pills probably don't cost $2 to make if you include R&D, FDA regulations to bring it to market, costs for clinical trials, and salaries of scientists who helped to make it along the way (not to mention the actual manufacturer costs for producing the product).

This is not what they say though, they specifically target irresponsible greedy billionairs who think they are above the law, and in fact onws the law, since as Bernie says, they own congress by bribing every politicians, left and right.

Also the pills probably don't cost $2

yeah... it cost 13.5$
