    I just received this E-Mail from Bernie Sanders and it made me laugh, JOKE?????????

    RONALD -

    I am writing to ask you to make a donation to our campaign. But first I would like to explain why this ask is so important — especially today.

    Let me be very clear: We aren't just running for president. We are building a movement that will transform this country once we are in the White House.

    Following last night's presidential debate, there is no question that our ideas are winning.

    But the only way we will pass policies like Medicare for All and a Green New Deal is by organizing the largest grassroots movement American politics has ever seen.

    That is what this campaign is about, and that is why I am asking you today:

    Can you make a $2.70 contribution to our campaign? We've got an important FEC deadline coming up soon, and we have some fundraising goals we need to meet before then.

    As you know, we are taking on virtually every powerful special interest group in this country as well as the entire political establishment, financial elite, and corporate media.

    But as long as we come together — and do not let Donald Trump or anyone else divide us up — we are going to win.

    Please make your $2.70 contribution today. This is an entirely grassroots funded campaign, so every contribution makes a big difference.

    Thank you for all you're doing to make this campaign possible. It means a lot to know that we are in this together.

    In solidarity,

    Bernie Sanders

    I put this under Humor because I am still laughing at it.

    I, for one, have no desire to see this country 'transformed'.

    Here is my 2 cents worth of help. I would not vote for you. Even if there is no one else on any side to vote for.

    Come on Jerry,
    You gotta vote for Bernie if you want the FREE (((OTHER PEOPLES ))) stuff along with Free Medicare and maybe he will have the other Democrat that will pay you $1,000 a month run as his vice president.

    Hey Fish, If I had an extra $2.70 , I sure would send it to his campaign fund.

    There was a FaceBook page that is ran by Bernie people where a "friend" of mine made a comment that brought it into my feed. It was about how high CEO pay is compared to the modest workers at their locations. Had a lot of traffic. Most of the businesses they called out excessive CEO pay were franchises. I wrote a lengthy post on it, explaining who really gets hurt if you raised minimum wage at those types of businesses (note, it is NOT the CEO but the franchise owners and the Master Franchise Agreement owners who may operate 10 or 20 locations). I used one company listed as an example, Chipotle. Took the CEOs publicly recorded 2018 salary, including bonus and stock options, compared it to their 2016 revenues and ran basic numbers against their 2500 store solely corporate owned business model. If you took away all that the CEO made and gave it to a made up 4 FTEs per location (10K) employees, they would make roughly 36 cents more per hour or 800 dollars more per year. I then also debunked the "greedy corporation" argument by stating their public Revenues and Net Income from 2016 (Revenue = 3.8 Billion, Net Income 22 Million, or, less than 1%). For fun I ran a scenario example of what it would take in additional salary expense alone for four FTEs to be paid 15 an hour if they were currently making 10 an hour, I think, and that number came out to over 100 Million dollars. So I then said, you tell me, how many more burritos do they have to sell and at what price that keeps their volume at least stable, do they need in order to continue to make their 1% net margin? Crickets, there were over 200 comments on that thread, to date, no one has even attempted to argue with me on it.

    Yeah, CEOS are evil, but lets pay LeBron and Brown more than a CEO makes every year to play with a ball.....
