This is more like it!

Guy tries to bring a gun into the capitol, gets shot. Media reports that he had previously interrupted the house (IIRC) by shouting "I'm a prophet of God!"

Media neglects to mention that he's a black preacher who was there to campaign for a $15/hr minimum wage.

He shouted about being a prophet of God, and within milliseconds was declared not a terrorist (he's not Muslim, obviously). This is a relief. Now liberals can go back to blaming poverty and lack of gun control

Jew-turned-neonazi uses a single line script to trigger thousands of unprotected internet-connected printers that spewed out anti-Semitic messages. Have you checked your port 9100??

Hmm, I didn't realize it was that easy. Can I convert from black person to neo-nazi?

According to the article, you need to make a stop at mormon-town first.

Want to make sure I have the talking points right. Are liberals blaming terrorism on poverty and lack of gun control, or this non-terrorist event?

Alleges to tell you how your 2015 taxes would have been under each of the candidates. Would have paid 36k more under Bernie. Fuck him.

Oh good, a 50% increase under Bernie. I must be rich after all!


To be fair to Sanders, part of that increase would be offset by no longer having to pay directly for health insurance and health care (and other stuff like saving for college). Presumably they'd be counting on employers to also raise salaries to compensate for no longer needing to pay the employer subsidy on health insurance. But either way, kind of hard to stomach a 50% tax increase.

I'm in a similar boat.  Free healthcare doesn't appeal to a guy like me who has spent <$500 in the last 5 years on medical expenses.

Hell, I'd be happy just being able to deduct 100% of my student loan interest like I can with my mortgage (or a sweet, sweet flat tax with no deductions).

I'm atypical, as healthcare for my family is included in my employment contract, and also my schooling is paid for and I'm not sending anyone to school...I've got pretty much nothing but downside with The Bern.

You may be atypical in that your health care is 100% covered, but I think the average American has some kind of insurance plan through work.

I'm not a math guy, but that means my refund would be half again as large as it was this year? Sweet. Starting to feel the Bern!!1!11!
