Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, September 12, 2017

Bernie Sanders, whose socialist agenda has no problem stealing Peter to pay Paul (or in his case, stealing from those with money to give to those who don't), the same man who represents himself as the champion of the downtrodden, appears to be just fine not paying back the cities he visited in the 2016 campaign for the security services they provided him.
These cities include unpaid bills from the Irvine, California police department ($67,000), the city of Vallejo, California ($28,000), and the Santa Monica, California police department ($117,000).

According to USA Today, Sanders still has around $5 million in his campaign account that is just sitting there. Why it hasn't been used to pay off his campaign debts -- both President Trump and not-President Clinton have settled theirs -- is anyone's guess.

But Sanders and money have always had a tumultuous relationship. The Vermont senator and his wife, Jane, are currently embroiled in an FBI investigation into a $10 million loan from People's United Bank in 2010 allegedly secured under false pretenses.

Doncha just LOVE these socialists??? Here's some more:

"So, the man who stomped around cities claiming that the people aren't paid their fair share, and are consistently being worked over by those in power isn't paying his fair share. This as he owns three different houses, one of which costs $600,000, which happens to be more than his accumulated debt to the cities that protected him during the campaign."

"Sanders does seem to have a problem with personal responsibility; he was kicked out of a commune in 1971 for "sitting around and talking" about politics instead of working."

Hasn't anyone read "Animal Farm?" The reason the pigs got to mix milk with their oats was because they needed the additional nutrients, being the lynchpins of animal society and the vanguard of animalism. Their key roles in shaping a future world required that they ignore rules that others needed to follow. And that's OK, because it truly was for the good of the other Animals.

I don't see any libs condemning Sanders. How is this possible? I thought libs hate greed.

What's your take on greed, Ray?

Sort of like people with a job get health care, people without a job don't get health care.

Trump taught Bernie that not paying your bills is smart.

Load. Of. Crap.

#2 All animals are equal but some animals are more equal than others - Snowball Sanders

Sanders cost me the election! - Napoleon Clinton

To be fair, though - he's probably not the world's greediest socialist. There are a few people down in Venezuela that make him look like a piker.

Bernie should pay them if those are, in fact, outstanding obligations.

Gee. That was hard.

Now, can I expect you whiners to see greed as bad on the next thread about some sociopathic CEO bumping his pay while laying people off?

#9 It's not the greed. Greed is good. It's the hypocrisy of espousing socialist principles from the front porch of your third house while looking at the Audi R8 in the driveway.

They only hate conservative greed, Ray. "Progressive" greed, on the other hand, is rather admired.

The same people crying about this are the same people who feign outrage over Al Gore relying on the internal combustion engine when traveling long distances.

The nerve of them.

Using the only tools available to them to achieve their goals!

Yep, you can. I kinda put it in the same class as a multi-millionaire in the NFL or NBA not taking part in advancing those poor kids in unfortunate circumstances and dissing the USA by their actions. They're usually making MUCH more than those CEO's.

Was there some sort of contest to see who could post the dumbest article about Bernie?

No, Snoofy. Not like that at all.

"The same people crying about this are the same people who feign outrage over Al Gore relying on the internal combustion engine when traveling long distances."

Good point. How else other than a Gulfstream is Napoleon Gore (although he is probably closer to the vanquished Snowball) going to travel the world in order to inform the animals how they are screwing up by doing the same things he's doing. Not everyone can have milk in their oats, after all.

I despise Bernie in much the same way I despise Trump. Both campaigned in platforms that represent the worst aspects if this country. ---- him.

Bernie and Trump both ran as Ayn Rand praise singing, borderline sociopathic libertarians?

Neither ran as borderline sociopathic libertarians, JPW.

Indeed.

I was sarcastically describing my perception of Madbomber's type of politician.

There always is!

Find one where he went to Texas, maybe you can win.

Does sociopathic have a different connotation that I'm not aware of? Something synonymous with being against totalitarianism maybe?

The reason I support Libertarian candidates, like I did in this last election, is because the reject those authoritarian initiatives supported by both the traditional left and the traditional right. Initiatives whose key components really define those movements.

#21 Come on Mad, you know.... liberals think that anyone who advocates that people take personal responsibility for their own welfare are soulless mass murderers.

#22 yeah, that's it.

If you have to lie to make an argument you're probably wrong.

#23 | Posted by jpw at 2017-09-14 09:32 AM | Reply

I think that most many progressives have as much problem with advocating for personal responsibility as they do with the notion that people should be allowed personal responsibility. Both are too closely linked to individual freedom, which is in many ways antithetical to progressivism.
