People who actually lived under communism don't feel the Bern;

they wonder what the hell's wrong with Sanders little minions.
According to preliminary data from a survey being conducted by Sam Kliger, director of Russian-Jewish Community Affairs at the American Jewish Committee, between 60 and 70 percent of Russian-speaking Jews will vote Republican in this election. About that same percentage of American Jews backed Barack Obama in 2012.

“They have experienced socialism and communism in a totalitarian regime,” Kliger said. “Anything that remotely resembles that, they hate it, they despise it.”
Those brushes with communism’s downsides prompted Menaker and many of her friends to embrace capitalism with a rabid intensity. “Socialism is a conspiracy of losers against achievers,” Menaker said. “America is the only country where you can come naked with no language and make it in 25 years.”
I suggested to Menaker’s guests that even the most extreme of Sanders’ proposals—to make America resemble a Scandinavian country—is not quite as radical workers rising up to seize the means of production.

The Russians didn’t buy it. There’s no need for America to become more like Finland or France, they said. “They think Finland is just America with free medical care. Finland is good for people who are on welfare for a long time,” Nadia Shkolnikov said. “Not if you want to rise up.”

The families of 9/11 victims in the US are reportedly infuriated at the administration of President Barack Obama for 'siding with Saudi Arabia' over a congressional bill that could incriminate Saudi officials for the deadly attacks on September 11, 2001 in America.

The families of victims are making a renewed push to declassify 28 pages of a 838-page congressional report on the worst terror attack on American soil, which points the blame towards Saudi Arabia.
Of course he does.  This is the idiot who bowed to the king of Saudi and has otherwise kissed their ass; he cares more about enemy combatants than he does US troops, so him preferring to make the Saudis happy is no surprise.

No, getting rid of fat and meat will not save your health, and some of the prescribed ways of 'healthy' eating may kill you.

To quote a Russian immigrant in the late 70's "Big Stupid Government".
Deference to the house of Saud is not new and continually ignores their promotion of militant Islam. Yes we have been nurturing and protecting one of our enemies for decades.
Nutrition guidelines, how agro-business pushes demand for their most profitable products with lies, half-truths and misinformation endorsed by the FDA and compounded by misunderstanding and the crowd follower mindset.

I'm personally grateful for the Bernie signs in my neck of the woods. They are usually placed along with the campaign signs for the various local elections and it makes my research that much easier: "Oooh, OK scratch *that* one off the list"

Maybe it's just early, but Bernie signs are ALL I see around here. I saw one "VOTE TRUMP" sign spray painted onto plywood and bolted to a tree trunk but that's about it.

I feel the Bern. It's the hellfire of socialism.
