Is Bernie Sanders Promising 'Free Stuff' To Buy Votes? 13.2.2016 Crooks Liars
Corporate conservatives have taken notice of the Bernie Sanders campaign, and has started accusing him of "buying votes" by "promising" "free stuff." Is it true? Here are some examples of what the corporate/billionaire-funded right is saying: ● American Thinker, " Surprise: Bernie Sanders's free stuff will be very expensive for you! " Avowed socialist, pretend independent, wannabe Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders is promising lots of free stuff for Americans – and anyone else in the country, legally or not – if he is elected. Free health care! Free education from pre-pre-school through post-post-college. Free family leave. ● TownHall, " Newsflash! Bernie Sanders Fans: All That “Free Stuff” Will Break the Middle Class ": They want “free” birth control, health care, college, “Cash for Clunkers,” free housing for the poor and paid time off for women who are having a child. They want welfare with no preconditions for anyone who wants it, a $15 minimum wage and they want to open our borders ...

High school students harassed and peppered with racial slurs during a visit to Texas A&M 12.2.2016 Daily Kos
Remember that one time when racism went away and we were all happy? Well, people at Texas A&M University seem to have forgotten our post-racial era in a big way. After an on-campus visit Tuesday, several high school students report that people draped in Confederate flags harassed them and used racial epithets during their visit. The  Texas Tribune reports : About 60 juniors from Uplift Hampton Preparatory were touring the campus, according to state Sen.  Royce West , D-Dallas, when two black students were approached by a white woman wearing Confederate flag earrings. West said the white woman showed the students her earrings and asked them what they thought about them. Then a group of "white male and female students" began taunting the students "using the most well-known racial slur that's directed toward African Americans," said West,whose district includes the Uplift Hampton Preparatory campus.  West wasn't there when the incident occurred, but he said he was briefed on it later by A&M System ...

John Kasich campaigns like a moderate, but on women's health he's your basic Republican nightmare 11.2.2016 Daily Kos
John Kasich has positioned himself in the Republican presidential primary as the … maybe not quite moderate guy, but the establishment guy with a heart. The not-so-far-out-there candidate in a field of way-far-out-there candidates. Thing is, when you look at Kasich’s record—separate from how he’s positioned in the terrifying presidential field—he’s damn scary himself. As Ohio governor, Kasich backed an attack on public workers that voters rose up and overturned. He’s been a big cheerleader for privatization—of  prisons ,  schools , the  lottery . And on reproductive rights , he’s been your basic nightmare Republican.  Most recently,  Kasich: … is likely to sign  an Ohio bill  into law that prohibits some state and federal funding from being distributed to facilities that perform and promote what are known as "nontherapuetic abortions"—abortions performed in cases that are not related to rape, incest, or life endangerment of the mother—even though the funds are not used to pay for any abortion services. ...

If You Are the One's Meng Fei: 'Looking for beauty is universal for men' 11.2.2016 The Guardian -- World Latest

As China’s most popular dating show comes to Australia, its host shares some wry advice to avoid coming home empty handed when love is on the line

Meng Fei has a tip for candidates looking to succeed on the long-running Chinese dating show he hosts, If You Are the One. “Every person has a lot of dating criteria – for example, height, appearance, income, education. So I think rather than trying to excel in a particular criterion, one should ensure you do not fail in any.”
