    Bernie continues to be a Castro sympathizer in his 60 minutes interview. There goes Florida. Well, unless Broward county is already filling up an 18 wheeler with emergency ballots.

    If he gets the nomination, the country is at a crossroads.

    i think all the bluster about the latino vote going to the bern is nonsense
    every latino i know is well aware of the situation in venezuela as well as what castro was

    nice exploitation of a child
    never mind that no one -- AND I MEAN NO ONE -- knows shit at 9 years of age
    where the fuck are the kid parents to counsel him?
    every one of these fuckers should be indicted on child endangerment charges
    absolutely sickening and shameful

    Don't mean to be contrary, but I've read that Liberace knew at 6.

    makes me ill
    idc what side of the political spectrum you stand on this has been made easier to accept
    its almost a fashion statement that garners attention for the people who don't stand out
    "look at me i'm gay" and celebrities use it as well to get noticed
    i could care less where people stick their dicks and their tongues
    its been made into something to be celebrated which imo is totally bizarre
    i love my daughter and nephew who apparently feel they are gay
    i accept it and it makes zero difference as to how i see them as family
    in my daughters case (step technically) i dont think she was ever loved and she had boyfriends so i think its a love thing and she's clearly the woman of the relationship
    in my nephews case i'm not sure but i'm just hoping he doesn't want to transition
    why has it become so common place to mutilate our bodies?
    feels like someone stole the handle and we are full speed to the end

    It can drop 5,000 more and still be higher than anywhere Obama had it.

    But yeah... Bill Maher must be coming in his pants over this...

    The market goes up over time, that’s just what it does. You need a pretty bad market crash for it to not go up during your presidency, it went down during Bush Jr’s presidency, but even then it took the biggest crash in 50 years for it to go down barely. Again, the market did better under the first 3 years of Obama and Clinton. The market has been pretty normal under Trump, nothing to write home about.

    I’m a big Buttigieg supporter, I’ve loved the guy since I first heard him interviewed over a year ago... so I find the hatred over this clip odd. I agree that there can sometimes be too much exploitation of minority groups and kids, puppies, photo-op moments, etc... but I’ve heard a lot of Pete, and I can honestly say he rarely speaks about being gay. When he does, he is prideful like in the clip, but it’s almost 100% because someone else brought it up. I’ve heard him talk hours straight on policy and political ideology without even mentioning it. Honestly, if he wasn’t gay he’d almost certainly be twice as dangerous in this race. So I get what you’re saying, Diablo, but I don’t think he’s that guy.

    The guy is just trying to save us from Bernie right now

    just seems like everywhere you look the gay agenda is front and center being force fed to the masses
    i don't think its anything more than the militant gays and overcompensating homophobic adults (mostly white liberals imo) that put it on blast
    unless you're a boorish fool you probably don't have any issue w gay people doing their thing and getting married since society says thats how we want it
    i think mayor Pete seems like a good enough guy and i appreciate he acts like a man first and not a primping affected look at me type
    of course if he did he wouldn't have a chance in hell and as i said earlier i still don't think he does
    all that aside even the competition says he's scripted and robotic and i have to agree
    at times it sounds to me like he's trying to channel obama without the personality idk
    really think trump is licking his chops to get at any one of the candidates
    used to vote for democrats on occasion but this field is an absolute mess and probably tulsi was the best chance
    seems like the party has pushed so far left now that a socialist/communist is the front runner
    can't go any farther than that
    when a person openly cites things like castro had his good points i can't listen anymore
    no socialism, free speech and free markets and i don't see any dem advocating any of those core tenants

    I can’t argue that Pete is scripted and robotic. I appreciate it from a “prepared” standpoint, but he certainly doesn’t have the personality of Obama, Trump, or even Bernie. Personally, I find the Trump personality exhausting and having a president who values making good decisions over saying whatever will get the most cheers would be refreshing... I’m starting to worry that won’t be the case though.

    IMO, Pete is the best speaker in the Democratic race, but Bernie has the most personality because he’s just unapologetically who he is (Trump has that same personality, different values and experience obviously, but same personality).

    I’d like to see the parties move back towards the center so we can agree on the 80% of things that most people agree with, and just argue the 20%... but we seem to be moving towards the poles. Ugh. Politics.

    Pete's not my guy. All I can say.

    Bernie? Well, I'm terrified that there are enough gullible people in this country to have turned a communist who writes erotic short stories about women being gang raped, praises Fidel Castro's re-education programs, and has never had a real job in his entire life into a millionaire 10X over...and into a presidential front runner.

    The fact that Trump or anyone for that matter would not win all 50 states against somebody like Bernie is scary.

    I'd also like to know how they calculate and verify people living "paycheck to paycheck"
    They scream about how this economy doesn't work for everyone, and how so many live paycheck to paycheck.
    A lot of that has to do with fiscal irresponsibility
    I know people who make 180-250k per year that live paycheck to paycheck.
    I also know dishwashers and custodians who have zero debt, five-figure emergency funds, healthy IRAs, and could miss 6 paychecks without going under.
