And this is untrue how? The way some people talk about Wall Street you'd think they'd actually want to physically harm bankers and investors.

He's angry that he is losing and he is lashing out.

Tulsi Gabbard is pretty much a huge hawk, so I don't know why people seem to think anything to the contrary.

Sanders is visibly angry.

Not a Ted Cruz fan, but I do not think that remark was anti-Semitic. I think it was just one of those typical conservative lines about how the big city is full of sin and decadence, as opposed to rural areas that are God fearing and pure.

Campaigns have to be really careful about who they let be surrogates.
32  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential General Election Polls / Re: GA: Clinton dominates on: April 13, 2016, 04:19:25 pm
I'd not be so quick to dismiss this. States can see reversals in as little as one cycle, especially with out of the mainstream candidates like Trump and Cruz.
33  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Progressive Groups Targeting Julian Castro's HUD Record on: April 12, 2016, 11:19:13 am
If you can't pay your mortgage, you lose your home, period. I'm not sure why some people feel as if foreclosure is some sort of unfair oppression by the 1%.

I mean, to be honest, 'if you can't [do X], you lose your home' is never a 'just' way to run a housing economy, even if it is 'fair'.

That's where supply and demand comes in.

...what?

Houses cost money. Not everyone can get a free house, because it would be impossible to maintain such a system. If you don't understand that, I don't know what to tell you.

I understand that good and well (and would appreciate not being talked down to), but 'muh supply and demand' doesn't even come close to addressing what I said.

When you replied, you edited out the rest of my post to ignore the point about people taking out mortgages they couldn't afford, which leads to foreclosure. I'm not exactly sure what your point is.

That's where supply and demand comes in. There is also the fact that many people take loans out that they cannot afford to pay back. Granted, the banks were giving no money down loans, so there is a lot of responsibility on the banks as well.

37  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Clinton and de Blasio Ripped Over Racial Skit on: April 11, 2016, 05:36:11 pm
This is the first time I've ever heard a white person use this joke. It's mostly a joke used only by black people and it developed in the black community. It's not a slur and I'm betting some of these black people on Twitter complaining about it have used it at one point or another.
38  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Clinton and de Blasio Ripped Over Racial Skit on: April 11, 2016, 05:25:31 pm
de Blasio's wife is black, so I'm guessing that's why he felt comfortable making the joke. It's just a joke and it's one that I've made before.

And if we are going to start screeching "but if Sanders said that!" let's remember that he just made a very dismissive statement about primaries that had mostly black electorates. That is far more troubling than a joke.
39  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Would Sanders himself be creeped out by many of his supporters? on: April 10, 2016, 03:15:36 pm
Probably not.
40  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Why did Sanders only get 55.7% in Wyoming? on: April 10, 2016, 01:18:58 pm
It was a matter of better organization. Clinton's campaign likely wanted to avoid another blowout like a couple of weeks ago, so they did some ground work.
41  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Bernie Sanders dismisses Clinton lead: ‘A lot of that came from the South’ on: April 10, 2016, 01:15:10 pm
He seems to be as silly as he supporters when it comes to thinking that Clinton's lead doesn't matter because of where it came from. Those delegates are going to count no matter what, so it's pointless to even try and argue about regional differences.
42  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: What happens if Sanders is the nominee? on: April 09, 2016, 09:11:02 pm
The Republican candidate wins and does so easily.
43  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: What does Hillary Clinton say at fundraisers? on: April 08, 2016, 08:38:20 pm
I think the idea that a lot of these people have is that Hillary Clinton is taking bribes at the these fundraisers.
44  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: What does Hillary Clinton say at fundraisers? on: April 08, 2016, 08:29:03 pm
People are assuming that are some dramatic policies difference discussed in private fundraisers, when that is simply not the case. I have done private events more than once, so I know what goes on.
45  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: What does Hillary Clinton say at fundraisers? on: April 08, 2016, 07:58:14 pm
If you want to know, buy a ticket to one.

Maybe people deserve to know what candidates really say behind close doors without having to pay thousands of dollars. This isn't a good move for Clinton given her recent history involving the issue with Wall St. speech transcripts.

Clinton didn't invent big ticket fundraisers, they have existed for years. If you want to know what goes on in these fundraisers, I'll tell you. It's nothing but a bunch of partisan red meat that is a lot more amplified than what you'll hear on the campaign trail. I've been inside paid fundraisers and they aren't really any sort of secret society full of Illuminati code talk or anything like that. The paranoia is way overblown.

Super delegates are not going to vote for anyone who is trailing in pledged delegates, period. Contesting the convention would be an exercise in futility and only create unnecessary drama.
48  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Sanders to speak at the Vatican next week. on: April 08, 2016, 02:22:29 pm
Sanders is really lying up a storm this week.

Yeah just focus on the incorrect reporting and ignore anything that contradicts your view.

The Pope apparently isn't going to be at this conference, yet on the View Sanders stated that he was meeting the Pope.

If he backtracked, then it must have really been damaging for him.
