    Sree, have you just had a stroke?  Your question seems to have no context.  Have you mistaken your wife for a shoe?

    Mriana: Bernie has other issues I am in highly in favour of https://berniesanders.com/issues/ He’s also not a corporate/establishment dem

    What about the poor, folks who don’t even have social security or pensions? I saw this youtube documentary yesterday about poverty in America. Worse off than those homeless folks living in cars in California are the ones on food stamps in Appalachia.

    @Sree Have you read what Bernie has proposed via the link I posted? Your question is dealt with and he will take care of all of that. People will get socialized medicine- ALL people. They will get Social Security and people will have food and housing. Not sure why you even asked that question.

    Yeah, I glanced through his pitch. This old man is 78 and just had a heart attack. He is proposing to do something that is more impressive than doing a 500 pound deadlift on one leg. I don’t understand how he managed to have such passionate followers.  I don’t think Bernie Sanders believe what he is saying. He would keel over from shock if he won and had to do what he promises.

    He also had a surgery after the heart attack that will prolong his life, possibly for years. He could be 90 years old when he dies. His doctors also cleared him to campaign. I also believe he does believe what he’s saying. He’s been saying it for more than 50 years and I think he can do what he says, if people gave him a chance. As for Warren, she’s admitted publicly she is a corporate dem. She’s with the establishment and we cannot continue electing those with the establishment because they aren’t going to make things any better. She says she has a plan for this and that, but when greedy corporations start pushing her, she’ll cave just as she turned on Bernie when he started jumping ahead in the polls.

    That said, have you noticed how old Elizabeth Warren is? The same you say for her, concerning age, isn’t much different. Granted, she’s not had a heart attack, but it could apply. Thing is, everyone younger than they are, that I somewhat agreed with on certain things, have dropped out. Kamla might have been OK, except her record as an attorney disturbed me. Castro would have been a riot as president, in name only. Castro v Castro in a new bay of pigs. Nevermind, you have to be old enough to know history or went to a school that actually taught history.

    Be that as it may, the only one who could actually beat the dotard is the old man. The dotard will do the same thing to Warren as he did to Hillary. He’d be slamming her right and left and all the other crap and while Warren may win the popular vote, the dotard will steal the election with the help of his bed buddy Putin. Bloomberg is so rich he could buy the election, which he’s trying, just like the dotard who has his lover Putin to help him. Biden is too centrist to win and by your standard, too old, which makes me curious= If 78 is too old, what makes you think the dotard isn’t too old and won’t have a stroke or heart attack tomorrow? Oh right, the orange dude isn’t human.

    I think Bernie or Elizabeth could beat T rump, as well as any of the other Dem candidates who are running.  But why are the oldies ahead in the polls?  Because of name recognition?  Because of experience?  We haven’t had a particularly experienced President since George W. and he was a disaster.

    I suggest looking at the candidates who have not spent most of their adult lives in the 20th Century.

    I have no wife and too young to have a stroke. My question was meant to find out just how averse you are to killing animals.

    You don’t like Bloomberg? He is also an old guy but looks fit enough. He has enough money to blow Trump away. My guess is that Soros would back him and, together with Bloomberg’s money, they could churn up a tornado to send Trump all the way to Kansas.

    Mriana: Biden is too centrist to win and by your standard, too old, which makes me curious= If 78 is too old, what makes you think the dotard isn’t too old and won’t have a stroke or heart attack tomorrow? Oh right, the orange dude isn’t human.

    Frankly, Biden is the only candidate that can come on, visually, like a US President but he is not only too old, he is crooked and looks it.  Trump is in his early seventies and is astonishing for a guy his age. I guess he likes being President and the job invigorates him. He is following his bliss, as Joseph Campbell would say. He is self-centered, likes attention, and now he is the center of the universe. Imagine him, as a younger man, running across the street in New York to introduce himself to Paul Volcker.  Trump will be immortalized with a Presidential Library, hopefully in Central Park. What do you say?

    No I do not like Bloomberg nor do I think Biden is the best choice either. Biden is a centrist and Bloomberg is so rich can buy the election, which is what he’s trying to do. Bernie is grassroots funded and doing very well. Warren is allegedly grassroots too. They’re not greedy like Bloomberg and the fact that they have grassroots funding shows that they are very much supported by the people and not buying their way into the office.

    The dotard will be immortalized as the criminal he is and it’s not the presidency he likes. It the power and control he feels with it and he’s greedy for power, control and money. Greed is not a virtue and I don’t think Joseph Campbell would consider greed following one’s bliss. No religion appreciates greed. The thing is Biden can’t beat the dotard, but Bernie can.

    @Sree one can have a stroke at any age. It’s not necessarily age related. Even babies have been known to have a stroke, though it’s rare.

    My theory is, the boomers don’t want to let it go and allow GenX to take over. I think Kamala was a GenX’er as well as Castro and a couple of others. I just hope my generation isn’t as stubborn in letting go and allowing the Millenials to take over when they are old enough to be president and VP. I think AOC would be great, but she’s not quite old enough to run until 2023. That said, I truly feel the Boomers don’t want to let go and intend on holding a tight grip. That said, all the boomers dropped out because they didn’t have the funds and weren’t getting the donations to their campaign like Bernie and Warren are. I also don’t think Geo. W. was experienced or it wouldn’t have been a disaster. However, President Obama had experience and he did a fine job, IMO. We’d be looking at those who haven’t spent most of their lives in the 20th century if they were old enough to run. Millennials aren’t old enough, yet. Gen X’ers are and, like the Boomers, they too have spent most of their lives in the 20th Century. Right now, the Boomers (Warren, Bernie, the dotard, Biden, Bloomberg) have a firm grip on things and won’t let go. The Gen X’ers (Obama, Kamala, Castro, and a couple others) tried. However, you’re going to have to wait about 4 more years, if not 6, before the oldest Millennial can run for president.

    Anyone under 58 has spent most of their adult lives in the 21st century.

    AOC can run in 2024.

    George W. had administrative experience as a Governor, before he became President.  He also had some half ass military service.  But he was still an epic fail as POTUS.  Obama only had a bit of experience in Congress (not very much).  His experience as a community organizer (tho scoffed at and made fun of, by the Repubs, helped him get elected.)

    No Tim, I’ve only spent 20 years of my life in the 21st century and I’m not 58 yet. I’m 53. Born in early ’66. Do the math. I’ve spent most of my life in the 20th century. Even as an adult, I’ve spent quite a bit of my life in the 20th Century.

    As for Obama, he also had a degree in Constitutional law. That said, I really don’t see how military experience counts unless you are looking for a warmonger.

    My contention is NOT that you have spent half of your life in the 21st Century.  When I 1st made the relevant statement, I said “adult life”. The 2nd time, I bolded and italicized the word “adult”.

    You became an adult at age 18.  That was 1984.  That means you spent 16 years as an adult in the 20th Century. You have spent 20 years, as an adult, in the 21st Century.  If you don’t believe my math, we could try to contact Andrew Yang, I hear he is good at math.

    You have spent most of your ADULT life in the 20th Century, so you meet that criteria for me voting for you as POTUS.  Would you like me to write you in?  I am still considering who to vote for on Super Tuesday.

    No TimB, I was saying I have spent most of my adult life, thus far, in the 20th Century, but I guess you are right. Still Kamala, Castro, Yang, and a couple others would qualify too. However, most of them dropped out because the public was not funding their campaigns. The public has been funding Warren and Sanders’ campaigns, because they do mostly grassroots funding.
