As much as I love Uncle Joe, I'd be super disappointed if he or Bernie are the nominees. I've just about had it with old white men.

But, by all means Bernie, go full throttle at the Russian asset currently occupying the White House.
That said, if they are indeed the nominees, I will support them, campaign for them and vote for them because I don't know if we survive 4 more years of 45.

we get it, you hate bernie sanders. that's your prerogative. attack him if you want, there are lots of legitimate reasons you can do that over, but don't literally make shit up and then get pissy and childish when someone rebuts it.
Yeah, me saying i would push kids and old people out of the way to vote for him, and being a Bernie supporter for over half the primary really makes me hate Bernie. Noticed you didn't actually respond to the facts about Clinton. You didn't rebut anything. You gave a pathetic list of three demonstrations. I gave you about 20 solid things clinton did from age 19 to now working for people who needed it. Is it impossible for you just to say, huh, i didn't realize she did all that?
No you have to tell me I'm an asshole and to fuck off. very nice. My comment on Bernie bots has now been backed up right here. Thank you.

Mueller probe over, report due next week

No news on whether it's actually complete or if Barr ended it.

It’s been reported it’ll be complete for the past two years.

I think it’s a ploy by Trump team to make it appear like it’s mismanaged or is going on forever...

Mueller extended the grand jury by another six months.

In related news Cohen has been granted a delay in reporting to prison due to his poor injured shoulder 🥺🥺

Also how is Roger Stone not in jail for his IG post threatening his judge ?

again you're just pretentiously assuming you know more than me lol. get over yourself.

sorry i didn't feel the need to go to bernie's wikipedia page or google some random website and just copy-paste in everything he's ever done like you clearly did with hillary. and you can also stop being fucking disingenuous because you know for a fact he's done far more than "a pathetic list of three demonstrations". anyone with half a brain can realize that i was just giving a few examples, but go on being pedantic as fuck if you really insist.

it's also very cool of you to totally dismiss outright a decade of civil rights work in the 60s as "went to a god damn march". again, i'm sure you know it was more than "just" that and you're deliberately misrepresenting it to further your own narrative. being in the vanguard of white people fighting for black civil rights in a time when you could be literally lynched and murdered for that somehow doesn't count as supporting minorities, because womanfish says so.

lol cute. we can get back to having a civil discussion once you pull your head out of your own ass and stop calling people bernie bots simply because they said one thing in his defense against your fake bullshit.

Go ahead and take a little time and Wiki or google what he did over his lifetime to help those less fortunate. I'm not stopping you. Just because i actually research a candidate instead of just dismissing them because of what is the pubic sentiment, I'm the bad guy? I'm glad Bernie had that in his past. Does it overshadow what i found about Clinton's background when I actually did a little research? No.
I like Bernie. Watching his announcement, I actually go pulled in again. I like his aspiration, i like his vision, but I also am pragmatic and want to have achievable goals to get to those goals over time, and working with/against an adversarial Republican party.
I think we are more closely aligned than either of us would admit. I want change, I want someone to beat Trump. I think Bernie can do that. I really do. I hope that going forward he can win me over because I could see a Sanders/Harris, a Sanders/Klobuchar ticket laying waste to Trump. Either way i would vote for him in a general, no doubt.
I didn't mean to be condescending, and hope that as Bernie says, we can bring people together instead of tearing them apart. I shouldn't have come off like an asshole or re-litigated the past. Clinton is the past and should stay there. Peace

okay, i'm over it. just stop calling me a "bernie bot" please because that's 100% untrue and unfair. today is literally the first thing i've ever said in his defense here and that's twice in one week now that you've thrown that at me as a smear tactic.

i would be inclined to agree were it not for the fact that nbc independently reported a little while ago that mueller would be done his investigation work in mid-feb. i think compiling and releasing the report itself is going to take longer than next week though.

if it's released to the public on march 12 along with recommendations of criminal charges against dipshit donnie, that would certainly make one hell of a nice birthday present for me

Fair enough. just brought up some old nastiness on Twitter, which shouldn't factor in for me now.

also this...

Quote:
On Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday last week, special counsel's office employees carried boxes and pushed a cart full of files out of their office -- an unusual move that could foreshadow a hand-off of legal work.

At the same time, the Mueller prosecutors' workload appears to be dwindling. Four of Mueller's 17 prosecutors have ended their tenures with the office, with most returning to other roles in the Justice Department.
https://www-m.cnn.com/2019/02/20/pol...ent/index.html

so it seems like we are indeed reaching the end of this particular road, one way or another. and not a moment too soon.

Yea the only thing that seems to still be an unknown is whether or not this is forced, whether this was planned to end when Barr came on so that he couldn't interfere, or if they really are just done and ready to report.

Even if they aren't done, I cannot imagine there isn't enough there to charge the whole lot of them.

That's what I want from him. My hesitations about Bernie have always stemmed from, 'how do you plan to do this?'

I mean... I did. It's why I voted for her. She had well thought out policies I could get behind.

And are you saying that a person who leans left would fall under your same assumption that policies don't matter to centrists? Because again, I definitely cared during the 2008 election as well and didn't like Obama as much as Hillary, because again, she had better outlined policies that made more financial sense, to me.

Blanket statements get nobody anywhere (even this one, I'm sure).

If everything is about being pragmatic, you’ll find yourself to be stuck in a local maximization with no way of searching a trade space for the true global optimally.

That’s why we operate on an incredibly complex insurance-based health system.

Now Trump wants to fire the Director of National Intelligence. He spent the weekend at Mar A Lago venting about him.
