I’m guessing 95% of Americans are not aware of Bernie Sanders’ Resume. This is a public service effort.

Bernie Sanders before political office

Thomas Lifson  / January 31, 2016


Who is Bernie Sanders?

Before he achieved political office, Bernie Sanders never had a steady paycheck in the first four decades of his life. Now, he aspires to the highest office in the land where he could play a decisive role in shaping the circumstances under which the rest of us work and receive (when we can) our paychecks.  It is a sobering record, as Investor’s Business Daily explains it:

His family managed to send him to the University of Chicago. Despite a prestigious degree, however, Sanders failed to earn a living, even as an adult. It took him 40 years to collect his first steady paycheck — and it was a government check.


“I never had any money my entire life,” Sanders told Vermont public TV in 1985, after settling into his first real job as mayor of Burlington.


Sanders spent most of his life as an angry radical and agitator who never accomplished much of anything. And yet now he thinks he deserves the power to run your life and your finances — “We will raise taxes;” he confirmed Monday, “yes, we will.”

One of his first jobs was registering people for food stamps, and it was all downhill from there.


Sanders took his first bride to live in a maple sugar shack with a dirt floor, and she soon left him. Penniless, he went on unemployment. Then he had a child out of wedlock. Desperate, he tried carpentry but could barely sink a nail. “He was a shi**y carpenter,” a friend told Politico Magazine. “His carpentry was not going to support him, and didn’t.”


Then he tried his hand freelancing for leftist rags, writing about “masturbation and rape” and other crudities for $50 a story. He drove around in a rusted-out, Bondo-covered VW bug with no working windshield wipers. Friends said he was “always poor” and his “electricity was turned off a lot.” They described him as a slob who kept a messy apartment — and this is what his friends had to say about him.


The only thing he was good at was talking … non-stop … about socialism and how the rich were ripping everybody off. “The whole quality of life in America is based on greed,” the bitter layabout said. “I believe in the redistribution of wealth in this nation.”

So he tried politics, starting his own socialist party. Four times he ran for Vermont public office, and four times he lost — badly. He never attracted more than single-digit support — even in the People’s Republic of Vermont. In his 1971 bid for U.S. Senate, the local press said the 30-year-old “Sanders describes himself as a carpenter who has worked with ‘disturbed children.’ ” In other words, a real winner.


He finally wormed his way into the Senate in 2006, where he still ranks as one of the poorest members of Congress. Save for a municipal pension, Sanders lists no assets in his name.


Well, at least he hasn’t pulled a Clinton and enriched himself via influence-peddling. But it is quite clear that envy is a deep part of his psychology. That has become the source of focus in his life, something that obviously was lacking until he got into   politics.


Envy is a terrible vice and it is the probable cause for the Socialists credo of ‘redistributing wealth’. Taking from Peter to pay Paul, even though it is stealing, has always attracted the Paul’s of the world; but it does not produce wealth. It produces sloth — and it always fails. Like the dog biting its’ tail, there is not enough nourishment for it to survive; but there is a great deal of pain.



Well isn’t that exciting. Now we have truly found a less qualified candidate than Obama, which I though was impossible. But, look what Canada did. Elected the pot smoking son of a former PM, Trudeau. Never accomplished anything. Now he’s running the show.

So, Bernie appeals to young people who buy the fair shake theory. They can’t get a fair shake because it’s rigged. The rich people keep them down just like the minority plea that brought us the Great Society. They really believe we can take enough from the rich to make them all rich too.

Now, I don’t think our young people are stupid, but they may be misled. After all in every phase of their education they have been told this is a fact. Nearly every educator from EL-HI through graduate school teaches from Bernie’s book. These union, tenured employees truly believe they should be making more money than any CEO in America. Their performance sucks as the test scores show but they don’t like scoreboards. They are like Bernie, miles from reality.

At age 40 when he got his first paycheck, Bernie was touting Cuba and the great revolution there. How’s that going, Bernie? Obama is going to visit there. Cubans are like Bernie they don’t work either. But, it’s because there is no work. See folks, no jobs, no work, no paychecks, keep your 1957 Chevy running if you want to drive anywhere.

Now that brings me to the bird. A gentleman was telling me at dinner that he and his wife were doing some estate planning. They are in their mid-seventies and they have a macaw. Their son is 40. Macaws live to be 60-80 years old and theirs is merely 10. Dad says to the son, our new estate plan says you get the bird. Son, says, “I hate birds”.

Dad says, “son, you don’t understand, the bird gets the money, you just get the bird.” Son looks at Dad, and says, ” Dad I love birds.”

See it’s all perspective. If young people are pissed because they can’t get good jobs, they have huge student loans, and they are the first generation to have it poorer than their parents they will be like rats following the pied piper. No point in telling them about Cuba or the other socialistic failures in history, they want something different.

Here’s the reality. If enough vote we get the bird and all that comes with that bird. By the time the kids realize what they did it will be too late and we’ll have the bird for 50 more years in some form.
