And Bernie has taken money from Bayer, who are not just a corporation, but a truly evil one who made their fortune marketing heroin to children.

I am saying this not to criticize Bernie, or to be a tat for your tit. I'm saying the person that passes your purity test is not likely going to have any power to accomplish anything.

Maybe Bernie is in cahoots with Bayer because he thinks it'll help get low-cost aids medicine to his constituents. Maybe there's a Bayer executive who supports his agenda. Whatever - you know the saying "politics make strange bedfellows?"

As one who actually has to live here, I can assure you I was a whole hell of a lot more confident in the direction the country was going in two years ago. And I assure you it's not because Kaine took corporate donations.

Bernie took more from big pharma in the last few years than Corey Booker.

And again, if you think proof is the issue, you are fighting the wrong battle once again. Read once again what I wrote above.

In fairness (and in the name of intellectual honesty) - he ran for President, so he racked up big numbers from them in 2016.

But the point is: The selective vapors that Jimbo and most of the dummies he listens to get around the fact that politicians take donations are tedious. In the end they just pull shit like this out to attack the ones they don’t like, and pretend not to see the donations going to the ones they do like.

I used to know this kid from Nutley, NJ in the 80s and he said the 10 mg Va***um was basically an unofficial unit of currency back then. (Roche used to have a manufacturing plant in that town and I gather people who worked there must have been stealing like crazy.)

Plus, the implication of "so what did they owe these corporations for this money they accepted?" as constituting any kind of proof is ridiculous on its face. You have to prove actual wrongdoing, you can't just imply it because you don't like who they accepted money from.

I agree - they play politicians like roulette, betting on red and black.

I'm reminded of one winter vacation when I offered to drive for gas money three other students from my dorm from NY to FLA. Not bad kids I had thought, fellow pot heads, but one thing that irked the shit out of me was how they'd laugh at shit that wasn't funny. I clearly recall a time driving off from a highway rest stop when one kid spilled hot coffee on himself and my backseat and they laughed like it was hilarious. I don't think it was the pot. I think it was because they were assholes.

You can knit pick at my stumbles if you like but I and the one other BCBer who from time to time bucks me up via PM knows what I'm on about. Fortunately there are other good folks out here who know too. Just read this heartening bit by Caitlin Johnstone on Consortium News about "gaslighting" and she concludes with this bit.

Your own educated best guess about what is going on in the world is infinitely superior to placing unquestioning faith in an establishment which has a vested interest in lying to you and a demonstrable history of doing so. Trust yourself and have full confidence that your conclusions, however imperfect, are always superior to those of known liars and manipulators.

Never, ever let anyone bully and cajole you for being skeptical of mainstream narratives instead of believing the say-so of malignant deceivers. Trust yourself. You are not being crazy, you are behaving logically. Don’t let them gaslight you.

Yes, hear hear for Jimbo's Educated Best Guess. Superior method!

Don't know what's going on? Take en educated best guess! Surely guessing shit will get us all the way over the top. Who doesn't like having their biases confirmed?

There is no narrative here except for general distrust of everything you hear on the news. That's the kind of thing a paid Russian troll would want you to believe.

the New York Post says "up to 100" but that's how the NY Post rolls.
