Bernie in Trouble?
The FBI is now involved in the investigation into Bernie's wife and the bank loan she obtained for the college she worked for. It appears Bernie himself is also under investigation for pressuring the bank to approve the loan. Apparently falsified information was given to the bank about future donations that would be used to pay the loan back. The college never received the donations and is now defunct.

Bernie and his wife have now retained attorneys.

If either is guilty, hit 'em hard. If not, no problem.

No doubt the current Administration is relieved by this minor distraction from its own peccadilloes.

I really do like Bernie and I really hope it isn't true, but I also liked John Edwards only to have to face the fact he fucked up.

Party issues aside, and I have said this in another thread. Humans compartmentalize and justify just about anything they do, outside class issues. But it seems the higher up you go, in class, sports star, musician, actor, business person, comedian, and even politicians, the compartmentalization becomes magnified.

Power, outside politics and fame outside of politics can cause people not to think about the outcome or backlash.

All I can say about Bernie is I hope it is not true. But if it turns out it is, he should not be treated any differently than if I as a no name committed the same crime.

It also is yet another reason, while I like both Bernie and Hillary, I don't want either of them to run in 2020. Morso because of the fact that both camps had a minority of "all or nothing" followers and they are still today pointing fingers.

RE: Bernie in Trouble?
Well this is Bernie's wife, not Bernie, first of all. Secondly, from what I have read, some attorney in Trump's orbit has been doing the basic muckraking here. All that said, if I had to hazard a guess, I suspect that Jane Sanders was in over her head in her role as president of that university, and did some dumb things, and possibly, whether intentionally or not, some illegal things. Too much smoke for there not to be fire.

It always bothered me that during his presidential campaign Bernie never did end up releasing his own tax returns in anything like the way Clinton did. I always suspected that it had something to do with his wife's failed hobby. She shaped most of her career around Bernie's, and, understandably, wanted some legacy / accomplishment of her own, and thus the university thing. But I think she fucked up and he'll live to regret it.

BULLSHIT....

Our species existed long before any written religion or nations. Our species has AWAYS socialized. If we didn't we would not be the successful species we are now. Our species socializes regardless of politics or religion economic views.

Government in our modern language era has ALWAYS socialized. Since our species learned how to farm we became more stationary, then our social norms became local and we ended up defending those local SOCIAL NORMS.

Russia and Iran and North Korea and Iran are no different than the west, in that their populations socialize and pool resources to keep stability.

THE bullshit mistake you are making is that you equate "capitalism" as being a form of government and it IS NOT.

China is a closed system compared to the west, but their Communist party CAPITALIZES off of the social attitude of selling cheap goods to the rest of the word through cheap labor. And do not blow smoke up my ass by saying American corporations don't try to reduce labor costs.

Gadaffi was a billionaire who owned stock in GE. Fidel Castro upon his death had an estimated personal wealth of $800,000,000 dollars.

WE ALREADY HAVE SOCIALISM IN AMERICA.

Since Reagan, the GOP has learned to sell the bullshit idea that if you just take less and let the rich write the laws everything will get better. Our "socialism" is at the corporate level. Corporate America socializes the wins among the top when they win, and socialize the losses on the tax payers when they lose.

Listen moron, after WW2 we had unions, investment, and higher taxes in the rich, and THAT created Americas economic boom.

So when you say socialism hurts us, I AGREE, CORPORATE SOCIALISM DOES.

There was a reason the founders wrote the First Amendment, it was intended to be AN ANTI MONOPOLY LAW.

So all I am hearing is "Unless you let the rich dictate to us and write all of our laws, you are a COMMIE'

Nope fuckface, that is not what the left wants and that is not what western pluralism means.
