    I am no fan of Mr Sanders, but who cares about one extremely trivial incident from almost 50 years ago.
    True but I’ve heard him referred to as a dead beat dad numerous times and there have been references to his lack of employment history outside of serving in various political offices. This is just another angle to that story. Basically Sanders is seen as a front runner so people will try to dig up whatever muck they can on him.
    I actually just read a snopes article that says Sanders was employed in many positions prior to his political career. He was "working as an aide at a psychiatric hospital, as a Head Start preschool teacher, as a carpenter, and as a freelance writer for local publications" He also ran a company that created and marketed film strips on the history of Vermont to Vermont schools.
    When conservatives realize they cannot win democratically, they will not abandon conservatism. They will abandon democracy.

    As well they should.

    You're only telling half the story. Sanders wasn't a member of the commune. He was working as a reporter interviewing members of the commune. He was asked to leave because members wanted to spend more time discussing politics with Sanders than doing their duties.

    I saw conservatives pushing a story that once "Bernie got kicked out of a socialist commune for being too lazy." Intrigued by this I looked it up
    There's no sources in that thread! You can't be serious....

    Sounds to me like "Bernie can do no wrong" defense.
    Neither do your links include sources. No one in historical positions on Sanders have ever stated he was a member of any commune although he was a member of a kibbutz in Israel for a time.

    First, it was 50 years ago-people can change a lot over 50 years ago.

    Second, it was a disagreement over work in a commune.
    I’m not disagreeing that it’s a trivial matter (and possibly not the whole story) or that people can change a lit in 50 years.

    I am disagreeing that Sanders has changed in any fundamental way in the last 50 years. Or 60 or 70 years for that matter. I don’t think that people really change very much—not without a lot of introspection and desire to change and putting in a lot of work. People can overcome bad habits or adopt more. They can become more open or more closed off, more affectionate or colder. But the essence of who you are: I don’t think that really changes.

    BTW, the Bernie bros are always talking about how long he’s held his ideals. Longer than anybody alive!

He got kicked out of a commune in 1970 for refusing to contribute anything to it and the Bernie Bros. defend him for that. He voted for wars and signed controversial bills and the Bernie Bros' defend him for that.

    The ironic thing is that they claim to hate Trump supporters who say Trump can do no wrong, then they do the same thing with Bernie. It certainly is comical.

    ...says the guy who didn't know Stone was found guilty of threatening a witness.
    This would be a derail, Keith.
    no, quite on point. You make shit up and ecpose your ignorance all the fucking time.
    But, Andrew McCabe was found to have lied to the FBI...he's not being charged. Pretty sick stuff, right Keith?
    Lied? What lie did he tell? Active assertion of an untruth, not spin or misleading.
    If hd actively lied, Trump's DOJ would certainly liked to support his 'deep state' fantasy... so, what lie?

    It was a headline on Hannity's show, Keith. "Stone, Flynn charged. Comey, McCabe not charged." Hannity had a great point. He said "all the people involved with Trump go right to jail due to the witch hut. If you're a Democrat and lie your butt off, no consequences. Schiff lies every time he opens his mouth. No punishment."

    okay, let me ask a different question. What lie did he tell?
    Hannity had a great point. He said "all the people involved with Trump go right to jail due to the witch hut.
    not right yo jail. Thrte's a trial. Witnesses. Evidence. Chances to plea, make a deal....
    If you're a Democrat and lie your butt off, no consequences.
    Consequences for what lie, Halfie?
    Did anyone ever quote him lying?
    Schiff lies every time he opens his mouth. No punishment."
    evidence of all these lies...?

    And again, what lie is McCabe getting away with?

    your link says someone accused him of lying.
    Your link says they investigated this accusation.
    Your link says "based on the facts" they won't be charging him.

    So, if you could tell us what the lie was, and how you know it's a lie, we can see thus conspiracy at play.

    If you cannot find alie, then shut you piehole on shit you know Sweet FA about.

    Starting to thing the "just wait for Bernie to finally be vetted" line was more like "just wait until all the reports of Bernie being way cooler in the past start coming out". I miss that Bernie.

    Wasn't McCabe the guy that lied about the leak that helped DONALD TRUMP win the election?

    Shortly before in the sense of a few days before! And this was on the heels of Comey reopening the investigation on the fucking emails.

    Yeah, this is the asshole that leaked a false story to the WSJ about a fake FBI investigation against the Clinton Foundation, that the Trump boot-lickers say was an ally of Hillary Clinton! It is absolutely maddening how far up Trump's ass these people are that they make these arguments with a straight face and no sense of shame or irony at all.
