    Bernie Sanders on Lou

    Anyone catch Senator Sanders on Lou's show? Not sure if it was a replay from earlier in the week, but what can I say...........The man absolutely ROCKS. He said it all. He talked about the destruction of our middle class, depression of wages. He said that we are more productive than ever, but wages are going down. He said that Bush lies about the economy being strong -- that it really just means the rich are getting richer, and the gap is growing. He explained that most of Washington is bought off by greedy special interests. He railed on our trade policy and the amnesty bill.

    Wow, I am really impressed with this man. Too bad he isn't running for pres.
    Serve Bush with his letter of resignation.

    See you at the signing!!

    Yeah, I just saw it also and it was a very good interview. Amazing how illegal labor is being used to pad profits for big business, as if we didn't already know these things. I just don't understand why the middle class America is not in such a huge uproar over this! It stinks and many people appear to have olfactory impairment.

    Sanders is a socialist. But I can obviously agree with him on this one issue...

    I had no idea. I just saw the "I" before his name, and thought he was an independant. Well, I don't care much for labels these days. I would take him over any of the "capitalists" -- or whatever label they choose -- who are driving our country over a cliff for corporate lobby money.

    I don't think he mentioned cloture specifically. But he had nothing but bad things to say about the bill.

    With friends like Bernie Sanders (I-VT), we certainly wouldn't need any enemies. BERNIE SANDERS IS NOT OUR FRIEND.

    Sanders, for all practical purposes, is a Democrat. He, like most independents, normally votes with the Democrats.
