Bernie undermines..... #Bernie....with #capitalism....
Bernie's dreams of socialism destroyed by his best selling book:
- ### Providing an in-demand product justifies high incomes for those who produce it:
When confronted as being among those he has long villainized, #Sanders became defensive:
“I wrote a best-selling book,” he declared. “If you write a best-selling book, you can be a millionaire, too.”
"I made my money fair and square, so quit hassling me about it."
You can make a lot of money if you work at it:
...one of the central myths of the Bernie Sanders wing of the #American #left is that people who become #rich do so on the backs of the #poor.
"I wrote a best-selling book. If you write a best-selling book, you can be a #millionaire, too."
"You can make a lot of money if you work at it. It's just that easy!"
This sounds #suspiciously like the " #bootstraps" argument which the left so often and so vehemently rejects. And it's pretty odd to hear it from Bernie Sanders.
Millionaires and #Billionaires provide a #benefit to #society:
had Sanders merely written a book, he would not have made millions. But since he wrote a #best-selling book, that brought in a lot of #money. But if the key to getting rich is to sell something a lot of people want, doesn't that show that "millionaires and billionaires" are providing a benefit to society?
Bernie didn't #exploit anyone to become a millionaire:
As to the matter of #inequality, Sanders hints at its origins. What if not everyone writes a best-selling book? Wouldn't that mean some people have millions of dollars and other people have much smaller amounts of money? Wouldn't that create inequality?
Sanders apparently believes it is possible to produce a good or service without #exploiting the #workers. After all, his books did not appear by magic out of thin air. Human beings #worked to #print the books, #assemble them, and #distribute them. Sanders made money from their #labors. In fact, he made a lot more money than any truck driver who #delivered his books to stores. He made a lot more than any #factory worker who #assembled the books. Does Sanders believe he took #advantage of these workers? Apparently not. Sanders #justifies his #wealth as a matter of writing books. He doesn't mention anything about the workers at all.
1. He believes that #providing an #in-demand #product or #service #justifies high incomes for those who #produced it.
3. If you do the same, you can be a millionaire, too.
That's quite a little #capitalist #manifesto from Sanders. #funny #democrat #socialism #fail
That one mysterious plate of mashed potatoes
Who leaves mashed potatoes on someone’s front porch? It’s the question they are asking after finding themselves the recipient of this bizarre side dish.What did we learn from this story? Never leave your meals outside, especially not on other people's doorsteps or porches - it could become the next Social Media's conspiracy theory.
“This neighborhood does a lot of quirky things. We decorate road signs, we put Christmas trees in our potholes, so it’s not surprising at all,” Lewis said. “That’s why I love this neighborhood because they do so many strange things, but it’s definitely one of the weirdest things I’ve seen since living in Jackson.”
Stepping out and narrowly missing the bowl, Bjernegard didn’t think twice about it, but as news traveled on social media, people hastily started forming their own theories of a mashed potato maniac.

While his granddaughter argues on Twitter, Benito Mussolinin's grandson is nominated for the Brothers of Italy
“He is a patriot, another important personality on our lists,” says Meloni. He said: “I have served Italy for so many years I would like to continue doing so in Europe”.
In an interview with the Times, he stated that he shared with Fdi the ideas on “regaining sovereignty, protecting our country and the family”.

Women in their equality fight have come a long way this past couple of years. The wage gap is still there but women are not afraid of speaking out their truths. Now it’s time to address one more very important matter. Bras. When exactly will a genius women scientist appear with something to keep our girls perky for all eternity? We really need this to happen. So in that spirit, here’s a collection of tweets by women about their everyday ‘bruggles’. Bra-struggles, get it? Not feeling it?

Another fatberg in England had to be removed
(I knew this story sounded oh-too familiar to me: They once had to remove a fatberg from the city's sewage system next to London, because people seem to use a certain kind of wet towels that binds all the grease and what-not that flows through the sewers, thus forming a big giant mountain of fat, that eventually plugging all the liquid that was supposed to come through. One can only imagine what it had to be like for the workers who had to remove it. Now, here they went again.)
"Workers have braved exceptionally challenging conditions to break up the beast," SWW said.The beast from the East? 😉
SWW asked people not to "pour fats, oil or grease down the drain, or flush wet-wipes down the loo".English exceptionalism, I guess: To think that it would be anyhow logical to flush down grease or oil down the toilet instead of dumping it in the apparent means like a decent, civilised human being.

Trumps Tweets als Songs am ersten und vierten April, gespielt durch das philharmonische Orchester Regensburg
For my English readers: I'm sorry that this text is only available in German. But because I'm thinking of you, I will hereby provide you a short abstract, and as soon as possible, I will also share a link to an audio of the concert (I won't attend it, so we all have to wait for a permitted upload of their concert on Twitter. Hopefully, it will be available as soon as possible):
Tom Woods is a US-American composer who usually reads Trump's tweets, every morning. He's impressed about the impact it has on people, measured by the amount of comments under every single tweet. On the other hand, his tweets, in his view, have an almost melodic sound when read out aloud. Therefore, he wrote this piece of six parts. In the beginning, his tweets are read out aloud as well, followed by the actual music. Due to their shortness, he struggled to find apparent genres to represent his tweets, so he moved on from Rock 'n' Roll to Samba, or Rap. He even tried to write a piece of Classical Music in a polyphonic manner, with an alteration of harmony.
So far, you can only listen to short pieces of his songs, which are always interrupted by quotes of an interview the anchorman held with Mr. Woods. Still, it's worth it. Just click on the repsective button right under Trump's quarter-chin. 😁
Jeden Tag liest er, was Drumpf so von sich gibt. "Jeden Tag", erklärt Woods, "stehe ich auf und das erste, was ich machen möchte, ist gucken, was Drumpf gestern geschrieben hat, weil es immer so eine Überraschung ist."
Am Anfang des Stücks erklärt Drumpf, warum er sich über Twitter an die Welt wendet: Nicht, weil er die sozialen Medien liebe, sondern weil es angeblich die einzige Chance sei, Falschmeldungen, sogenannte Fake News zu bekämpfen. Tom Woods: "Der Tweet ist natürlich ganz kurz, kurz und knackig. Das ist der Witz, denn ich habe versucht, eine Musik wie Pop oder Samba oder Rock'n'Roll, selbst auch kurz und knackig, wie ein Klassik-Stück mit Polyphonie mit Harmoniewechsel zu entwickeln."
"Es gibt ja unterschiedliche Einschätzungen. Die einen sagen, wenn man Mozart mit Zeitgenossen kombiniert, ist das eine Täuschung des Publikums, aber darum geht’s nicht. Es geht eigentlich darum, zwei verschiedene Musikrichtungen gegenüber zu stellen, ohne wertend zu sein."

Dutch inventor examines performance of bovine toilet system
"We are tackling the problem at the source," Henk Hanskamp, the Dutch inventor and businessman behind the "Cow Toilet", told AFP Friday (March 29).
The cow toilets are currently being tested on a farm near the eastern Dutch town of Doetinchem and seven of its 58 cows have already learned how to use them without the need for stimulation.
"The stables have become cleaner and the ground is drier. Less damp ground is better for the health of the cows' hooves," Jan Velema, a vet who took part in the tests, was quoted as saying by De Volkskrant newspaper.

Pope afraid of germs, forbids people to kiss his ring
(Reminds me of «Civilization: Colonization»: When you didn't want to kiss the French king's (I forgot which one it was) ring, he whacked you in the face. Imagine people had been aware of the dangers of germs back in this time, it might have saved some people's lives, I guess.)
While some simply bowed their head and shook his hand, others leaned forward to kiss his ring.It explains a lot, I must confess: I saw this incident in a satirical news show the day before yesterday, but they didn't explain what was the background to Pope Francis' bizarre behaviour.
The smiling pope can be seen pulling back his hand repeatedly.
The scene in Loreto drew criticism from conservative Catholic observers who also frequently attack the pope over what they consider his too liberal approach to social issues.The usual...

Libyan Dictator Gaddafi raised tent on Trump's estate
(Please mind that this article is highly outdated, about ten years old. In the meantime, Gaddafi has died, and Trump has become the president of the United States. Hence, things have changed while I found this article, so that it only serves to entertain the reader who might wonder why Gaddafi chose especially Trump's property. Maybe like-minded people always connect to one another (although Gaddafi had a fare more prudent interior policy than Trump)).
Doors all over New York have been slammed in the colonel's face, but Drumpf says he has rented part of a large property in Westchester county to Middle Eastern tenants who may be associated with Gadaffi.I wonder why they didn#t ask Trump for comments on this unusual tenant, although he didn't sleep in this tent overnight.
Gadaffi arrived in New York yesterday, It is likely he will face protests over Scotland's recent release of Libyan Abdelbaset al-Megrahi, convicted of the 1988 bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 which killed 270.

Walmart seemingly intentionally sells daemonic products!!!!!!!!!!!
(Please don't take it too serious, I just share it to laugh about it. Soemtimes, one msut be pretty lucky to find such some inadvertently ridiculous articles)
The products include demonic sculptures and figures; satanic pornography that blasphemes Christ’s crucifixion; numerous products and jewelry with pentagrams and other demonic images, and books that include the Satanic bible and books on spells. Especially featured is Baphomet, the horned, goat-headed figure trademarked as the Church of Satan symbol.What the heck do they sell at Walmart? Seriously, regarding this description, they must have created a newly erected Gomorrha. 😁
Just as religious objects such as a Miraculous Medal connects us with the Blessed Mother and a crucifix with Jesus, Father Michael explained that similarly, wearing an icon of something satanic opens a person up to a demonic presence. “And that’s very serious,” he said.Sounds like something your reverend would tell you when you confessed to him you fell from grace with God.
Evidence of demonic oppression or depression can be very frightening, he explained. It often includes physical attacks and symptoms and strange occurrences. “People sometimes hear satanic voices in their head saying things like: ‘We aren’t leaving you… you belong to us… you’ll never get rid of us,” he said.

I guess he's drunk as a skunk and he doesn't give a fuck
"This guy gives a new definition to the saying 'skunked beer,'" Billerica Animal Control tweeted Thursday. "Amazing it could fit its head in such a small opening."
Talkin' 'bout puns, huh? But seriously, the photo is quite adorable, although I am frankly glad that nothing worse happened.

On people who enjoy the vehicle dashcam view firsthand
The incident started on Interstate 90 when Kamrowski’s Ford F-150 pickup truck was involved in a sideswipe accident with a white 2016 Infinity QX70 SUV driven by Mark Fitzgerald, 37, also of Massachusetts.Did he say this while driving on the speedway? Because then, it's obviously understandable he didn't get off his car, because this would have instantly murdered him. Beside that, it's fucking ridiculous. 😁
“He took my water bottle out of my car, he smashed my window, he was holding on to this. I said ‘get off my car,’ he said, 'I’m not getting off your car,” Fitzgerald tells NBC News.
A fellow motorist, Daniel Midah, with the handle @danimidah, captured the frightening incident Sunday evening on his phone and showed viewers that the car with the man on top of it was driving alongside him in the express lanes at speeds of up to 70 mph.
_“I had to go get my child. I wasn’t going to deal with any foolishness,” she said, adding that Francis jumped on top of the car to prevent her from leaving. "He had plenty of times to get off the car. He didn’t want to stop."__

Dennis Hof (R - NV) died of heart attack, autopsy finally reveals
The Nye County Sheriff’s Office released the results of his autopsy, which listed his cause of death as "acute myocardial infarction" or a heart attack, and the manner of death was determined as natural.
Hof was running as a Republican for a state Assembly seat and had called himself the "Drumpf of Pahrump." He had defeated three-term Republican lawmaker James Oscarson in the primary of that year.
Gregory Hafen II, the general manager of a local utility company, was then appointed to fill the seat, the Associated Press reported.

NYS local stole Little Debbie truck, didn't eat anything of the carriage
(Disclaimer: Not The Onion, this really happened. And yes, the man possible stars as a Disney movie prince.)
Several minutes later, officers found the truck driving north on Lake Street in the area of Bakers Lane. The truck was stopped and the driver was arrested.
Police identified the driver as 38-year-old Joseph Tocco. Police say Tocco admitted to taking the vehicle and using it to visit family and friends. The keys for the truck had been left inside the unlocked cab. Police say it did not appear that any of the inventory was missing.
Some men just want to see the world burn...
