    i think sanders has a much better chance then clinton when it comes to debates with D ump Hillary as i said before has too much baggage and cant seem to stay out of controversial trouble with the feds and or the gop. Bernie has been in washington for over 35 yrs and im sure he's got plenty of dirt on D ump as well as the gop

    Kansas went Cruz, Trump, and Rubio with 24, 9, and 6 delegates respectively.

    Kentucky went Trump, Cruz, and Rubio with 16, 14, and 7 delegates.

    Louisiana went Trump and Cruz at 15 and 14 delegates. LA purportedly has 46 delegates so I don't know what they do with the rest of them.

    Maine went Cruz, Trump, and Kasich with 12, 9, and 2 delegates.

    Cruz comes out ahead for the day with 64 delegates added to his pocketbook, Trump follows with 49, and Rubio loads up another 13 :wee:.

    The tally stands at 385 for Trump, 298 for Cruz, and 126 for Rubio. Kasich isn't worth following at this time. Republicans need 1237 delegates to win the nomination.

    On the other side of the aisle Burny took two out of three contests but he currently trails Hillary at 1131:479 with Hillary at nearly half of her needed 2383 to win the nomination.

    Bernie would be Obama on steroids. What you don't understand is that the b.s. Liberal line of "helping the middle class" is fraudulent. You guys want to tax the money out of the corporations who have deep pockets, but you fail to realize that the corporations don't pay the taxes that you effed them with, we do as consumers. As consumers, we end up paying the tax at the cash register. Obama claimed that his higher taxes wouldn't affect the middle class any (which is b.s.). Just look at your grocery bill one time and you'll understand that Obama screwing the corporations out of tax money DOES affect us middle classers.

    Since Obamacare has been a complete debacle from top to bottom, that's just what America needs......socialized medicine for all. Yep. Let's double down on stupidity.

    Or maybe just stop with the "show of force" movement of military vessels around the world, since we won't take any action anyway.

    The "help" that the American workers need comes in the form of jobs. Job creating policies puts people to work, gives them financial security, and stimulates the economy. And right now, it's obvious the Obama's job killing policies have hurt all three categories. 1% National growth is killing us in more ways than one.

    Bernme had his chance to get tough with her back at the beginning, and he chose not to. I question whether he actually wanted to win, or if his real goal was to just get the opportunity to preach to the country about how Socialism and Communism can help them. (which is all a lie)
    He isn't going to win, but he might have been successful moving America's mindset closer to accepting Socialism and Communism for the future.
    And since we have a lazy, incompetent, and dumbed down society, there are a lot of Americans looking for the easy way out.

    There are flourishing economies around the world, and it's OUR military that protects them. They save money by not having to have much defense spending.
    We need to start charging these countries for the protection that we give them.

    Of course, you are cautious on this topic, but your posts prove that you have little to no respect for what the military does for this country.
    That's not up for debate.

    Which is more than enough reason to keep him out of the White House.

    How 'bout if we shake 'em down and collect protection money just to not blow them into the history books? The Italians see it as a very effective way of doing business.

    No. We don't need to threaten them, as though we will kick their ass. We just need to charge them for our services of protecting them from other countries kicking their ass.
    Nothing is free. Our military protects a lot countries from around the world, and it's time they start paying for their protection.

    And this brings us to the March 8 primaries in MI, MS and ID.

    Michigan
    was the big nut to get out of the three with Trump, Cruz and Kasich scoring 25, 17 and 17 delegates, respectively. Rubio gets nada.

    Mississippi goes Trump, Cruz, Kasich then Rubio with 24. 13, 0 and 0. Poor Little Marco can't get out of his funk and it looks like he may have to ride Greyhound back to his home state.

    Idaho goes to Cruz, Trump, Rubio and Kasich with 20, 12, 0 and 0 for the respective candidates.

    This leaves the Trumpster with 461 delegates, Cruz with 360, Rubio 154 with and Kasich carries 54 out of the 1237 necessary to win the nomination (sort of, well, if they nominate the winner). This increases Trump's lead over Cruz by 11.

    Over on the other side of the aisle Burny pulls off what they are calling a huge win in Michigan. I don't know how they figure it's huge he only won by 1.7% or less than 20,000 votes. Huge is Hillary's win in Mississippi with 82.6% of the vote. Hillary stands at 1232 delegates vs Burny's 572 out of the needed 2382.

    Little Marco does need to stay in it through the Florida primary though, we can use his help splitting up the anti Trump vote down there.

    He gets pummeled in Florida the way he has everywhere else his career path might take a turn. He better start practicing his drive thru server etiquette because I doubt he has a CDL. :hilarious:

    The article says :
    "We have all these unofficial debts that are massive compared to the official debt," Kotlikoff tells David Greene, guest host of weekends on All Things Considered. "We're focused just on the official debt, so we're trying to balance the wrong books."

    Kotlikoff explains that America's "unofficial" payment obligations — like Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid benefits — jack up the debt figure substantially.


    Let us remember that those programs have their own source of income, payroll deductions.
    If you speak about the programs expenditures 10 years from now you must also speak about the revenue coming into fund them.
    Funded by the workers of the USA.
    What people like this forget to tell you the money is coming in, it's not just money going out.
    They make it out to be a complete borrowed expense which it isn't.

    Rubio will run for Governor one day and work his way back up the ladder, I'm sure that's his plan.
    Now suppose Rumps actually gets elected and things don't go well for us at all. Marco will look much better.

    Hard to believe Republicans will allow Rumps to take the White House.
    He's a dangerous man, I think he will get us into war and destroy the economy.
    Maybe Republicans will decide to make Super Delegates so this :shit: don't happen :scratchhead:

    You were ok with a guy who was mentored by a communist, hung with Rev Wright and Bill Aryes types, created a zone for Isis to develop, doubled the natl debt, has the lowest work force participation rate in 40 years and has a 1% growth rate in the economy for starters.

    Trump is a solid candidate :1036316054: don't worry.
