Jake, everyone on this Board raves about the Errol Flynn movie The Adventures of Robin Hood. Robin Hood is considered a great hero. What do you think that film is about?

Wow.  So this Sanders supporter wants the superdelegates to use their power to overturn the decision of Dem party primary voters.

 

There seems to be an unusual attitude around lately that the nominee in both parties should be the loser! With logic like that, what kind of President would Cruz or Sanders make?

Bernie Sanders Will Become Democratic Nominee Even If Clinton Leads in Delegates?..

 

"....Hillary Clinton threatens the system of honest graft that provides political power to so many establishment Democrats. Superdelegates and the DNC know that an irreparable fracture within the Democratic Party awaits, if Bernie Sanders isn’t the nominee. They’ll wait until the last second, especially until after the FBI’s decision, to side with Vermont’s Senator. Bernie Sanders will win the Democratic nomination, not only because of a progressive political revolution, but also because it’s in the political interest of Democratic Party bosses."

 

- maybe? :unsure:

What a sick and disgusting POV.      To me anyone with an ounce of integrity would NOT want the superdelegates to decide who the Dem nominee is.     Anyhow the writer here is just confirming the Dem party establishment is corrupt and lacks integrity.

 

Of course I'm interested in how the HRC supporters feel about this use of superdelegates because when they believe they are 90% for HRC the concept is fair and A-OK.     So is it still fair and A-OK if it kicks HRC to the curb?

"By 48 percent to 39 percent, more Americans have a favorable than an unfavorable opinion of Sanders, giving him the best net-positive rating in the field, according to a new Associated Press-GfK poll. Unlike the other candidates, Sanders also is doing better as more Americans get to know him: His favorable rating is up from an earlier AP-GfK poll...."

Milt Friedman (ly 31, 1912 – November 16, 2006) was an American economist who received the 1976 Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences for his research on consumption analysis, monetary history and theory and the complexity of stabilization policy.

 

All of which have since been exposed as utter bull**** - just more of the typical junk science con-game expounded by "economists" on glazed-eyed audiences who are fooled into thinking "gosh, he sounds smart".

I don't expect significant works of literature or art to come

from modern centralized government. Now science,

agriculture, and industry are different animals and

centralized government on occasion plays a role in

those fields. The exploration of space and the the

world wide web are government endeavors that

private companies likely couldn't have handled at

the time. There's nothing to wrong in saying that

both government and private companies contribute

to civilization. Friedman should have been more

careful in using the word never, that can get you

into trouble. It also shows that a Nobel Prize winner

can also be a dope at times.

In college, everybody had a little beef with Milton Friedman. We didn't even know the guy, but he sent us a reading list that we were forced to read. If we couldn't pass the exam over these books, we weren't going to graduate.

Worse than that, you weren't going to even become a junior. I don't have to tell you I knew a lot of people who never became juniors.

The three books that I remember being the hardest to read were Summa Theologica by St. Thomas Aquinas, Das Kapital by Karl Marx and Mein Kampf by Hitler.

You can see why Friedman was so popular on my campus.

I was also thinking of works of art created through ruling patronage, symphonies written by court composers who worked for the state, etc. More recently you have things like the U.S. Interstate system which was a major breakthrough for both industry and agriculture, all of space exploration was done by the government, so there's your science.

 

And that's just off the top of my head. So I guess Friedman forgot about those.

Does Bernie only get 2 delegates for State of Wyoming?   I think Bernie is gonna get the popular vote, but Hillary will probably get the most delegates and win the nomination.   Why can't the popular vote count as Bernie would beat Hillary.   Why can't they just have an election on 1 day and all the States vote and the winner, by popular vote, is the nominee for their party for Presidential election.  I don't understand this delegate process and caucuses.....the will of the people should be the only determining factor
