The Berniebuster!

I had read in my travels that Bernie Sanders was going to do what the press is now calling a "Berniebuster" but until I checked my blogs (which now number around 100 and thank God they all don't post every day) and learned that Bernie Sanders had the floor of the Senate. I cancelled my plans for the day and I went there and I stayed with him until the very end. This is a brave, strong committed man who is a champion of us ordinary mortals. I do allow the naysayers their stance but not here and not today. I'm against making the rich richer and the poor poorer and endangering my life and survival.

If you're interested in what he said in the 8 1/2 hours he spoke, you can find it here. As I've said before, Bernie Sanders is my hero. I don't expect anyone to watch/listen to the whole thing but if y'all can spare about 15-20 minutes, you'll get the gist of what he talked about yesterday. If you're an ordinary mortal, you will think what Senator Sanders proposes is right. If you don't, go away.

I'm pretty proud to be an Ohioan right now. My senators are doing the right thing and supporting Bernie Sanders' stance on the tax cuts for billionaires.

The surprise is that my retiring GOP senator, George Voinovich, is downright militant!!! Sean Hannity called him a traitor which, for me, is a badge of honor. I nearly choked on my cornflakes watching this short video. Goooooo George!!!!

My other senator, Sherrod Brown (D-OH), has mobilized. He has a petition and y'all can sign it to support the defeat of the 'tax cuts for billionaires' bill. He was on Rachel Maddow and sounded great!!!

I hope y'all take the time to check out the links and video. Now is NOT the time to bury our heads in the sand.

Thank you, Bernie for standing up and speaking for all of us!!!!!

Hope y'all are having a great day!!!!

Happy Blogging!!!!!!!!!!!!



  1. They ran a lot of what he said on MSNBC yesterday. I don't know if it will be enough but he sure did his part. We have also called and signed petitions. I am frustrated with Bill Clinton too in defending this package which is now full of earmarks to help it pass.

  2. Thank goodness there are a few senators who are worth their salt. Yae for Ohio!

  3. Kay you know I didn't say much in the 60's but I do tend to say a lot more now. Good posts. I was checking out some of the blogs on your blog list very interesting. Thanks. Let's hope the storm doesn't hit us to hard

  4. I love Bernie, too! I told Hubby I wished he were young enough to be running for president. I'd vote for him for sure! Yea for Voinovich!

  5. Bernie, the self called Socialist has long been my hero -- and the only one in congress that really represents my views of a lot of things

    I watched a lot of what he said and it made me realize too that no one seems to have any clue of the real history of our country's middle class and how it developed -- or why we're now in danger of loosing it

    I say "buster on Bernie"!
