Re: “Arkansas Man Gets Probation for Scamming Developer Don Sinex

I see that the anti-everything, jealous-of-anyone-else's-success crowd is out in force.

Someone even thought his anti-Sinex remark was so clever he posted it twice.

Also "inadvisable" is taking legislative reimbursements you didn't qualify for.

Re: “Bernie Sanders' Senate War Chest Reaches a Record $8.8 Million

Raising money for a Senate reelection campaign, with the intention of using it for some other purpose, is simply dishonest. It should not be allowed.

Re: “Bernie Sanders' Senate War Chest Reaches a Record $8.8 Million

You continue to either not understand, or refuse to acknowledge the truth because you just dont like it. $9 million dollars for a US Senate campaign in Vermont is OBSCENE. OBSCENE. Period. Whether thats $9 million in large chunks or $9 million worth of one dollar bills. Its just obscene. And if it was anyone but your beloved Bernie, youd be squealing like a stuck pig about it. Angry Bernie and his sycophants are shameless hypocrites. Money out of politics. Except for me.

Tell me: How is anyone even someone without Bernies name recognition going to spend $9 million to win a US Senate seat in a state with a few hundred thousand voters. How.

How.

Re: “Could She Win? Evaluating Hallquist’s Chances for Victory

"and the Wall Street wing of the Democratic Party ( Obama, Clinton, Cuomo, Schumer, Leahy, Weinberger) would rather keep control of the party apparatus then let any real Progressive Wave take it over. Just ask Bernie Sanders about that."

Lotsa hyperbole and baloney here. Bernie is not and never was a Democrat. He just refused the Vt. Democratic nomination for U.S. Senate. So he and his Bernie Bros had no business attempting to "take over" (your words) the national Democratic Party just because his clinically significant ego problem drove him to seek the Presidency and he needed a party structure to support his bid. And the Party had no obligation to welcome a hostile takeover from a lifelong non-member who has spent his entire career shitting on the Party. He and the Bros should hardly have been surprised about getting the cold shoulder from the Party bureaucracy. Gee, might he have been more welcomed as a Democratic candidate for POTUS if he had spent his career trying to shift the Party from within, rather than shitting on it from the outside for decades and then suddenly trying to take it over because he needed it?

Re: “Iconic Tech Firm MyWebGrocer to Be Bought by Florida Company

@ Roy,

You might find that not everyone who develops a successful business and makes money is personally cheating you out of anything.
