The replies are fucking weird. He is simply saying that we need to give families better tools to make the best choices for them.  He is in no way advocating for state censorship or anything.  Edit: A lot of "slippery slope" arguments in there.  I fucking hate slippery slope arguments.  They are almost always a cop out for people that don't have legit counterpoints.

Doesn't matter.  Reduced emissions doesn't mean we're doing a good job. and that only shows a change in emissions, not emissions totals.  Globally this shit is fucked up.  America needs to invest in nuclear heavily.  Most of the dems are living in a pipe dream thinking they can get it done with wind, solar and hydro.  All of which would have massive negative effects on a variety of ecosystems if they were build out to the capacity we actually need.  Nuclear generates a lot more power in a much smaller footprint.  iirc, that drop in European emissions is mostly from France and Germany with their carbon free electric grids. Because they switched a large part to nuclear, they were able to do it quickly. We need to lead on this.  Drop our emissions like a rock and sell our technology to all these other countries.

What happens to countries that rely almost solely on oil export?

Don't worry, the Democrats will ignore all of that and vote for Joe Biden like the sheep that they are.

In all seriousness I would never wish death on my political opponents. 

 

Just retirement. If RBG and Sanders could just chill and enjoy some time with their families, that would be pretty lit.

More billionaires and blaming immigrants however benefit you how again...smart one...

It's just fucking amazing to me that legit I think this whole thread would benefit greatly from a bernie sanders presidency from a financial and ethical standpoint in the workplace (except maybe pharmassists, dont know how rich he is atm) however you're just so stubborn in your ways. Like you're actually planning on cheering on things in life that are most definitely opposite of your own self interests and would improve quality of life immensely just to own the libs. How outrageous is that lol. And defending people who honestly would nickle and dime you for everything you have.

Just back to the same old retorts....SOCIALISM BAD! BERNIE BAD! He thinks ones health and education should be off limits to capitalism just like the rest of first world countries are doing! BAD! This is america damn it! If I want to go declare bankruptcy on a medical bill and ruin my fucking credit because I got cancer that should be MY FREEDOM to do so! 

Oh and what the fuck is this? FAIR and HONEST work practices/wages from multi billion dollar corporations that exploit their workers on a daily basis and no one bats an eye? Pssh. They agreed to the wage, no one forced them to. If they dont like it they can just leave to another underpaying milti billion dollar corporation and get treated like shit for their work there too! Or just negotiate. I'm sure that would work. Just negotiate a living wage by yourself vs a mega powerful company bro.

Bernie would change alot of this and help the average american. Isn't that what this is all about? Helping average americans? Maybe you'd finally see that raise you deserve or get healthcare for your family.

Oh yeah. 

Having the couch pennies of the ultra rich cover your medical expenses won't benefit you in any way. 

Not a single way.

Government is at fault for allowing this country to be inundated with 3rd world immigrants. They are also at fault for signing trade deals which allowed millions of jobs to leave this country. Millions of uneducated, unskilled labor in. Millions of jobs out. What could possibly go wrong? Those two things are the biggest reasons I support Trump. One thing I do agree with you is that greedy billionaires share a huge part of blame in this. They are the ones who bought and paid the crooked politicians to sign the trade deals which enabled them to take advantage of cheap labor in 3rd world countries. And if these greedy billionaires aren't shipping the jobs overseas, they are brining in H1/H2 Visa Indians in to replace jobs once held by real Americans. I remember a few years ago when Disney replaced their IT workers with Visa immigrants and forced the Americans to train their replacements in order to receive a severance package. That was eye opening and from that point on, I would never give one penny to Disney and never even watched their fake Star Wars movies. So, yes, in that sense, I do blame billionaires for replacing American jobs with foreign labor. In the big picture, it has been absolutely devastating for this country. 

My self interest is making and saving as much money as possible. My self interest definitely is not paying higher taxes to subsidize diabetes, poor life choices, and 3rd world immigrants.

Socialism is terrible. I work hard to make progress in my own life, not to subsidize other human beings. I have zero fault in other human beings problems, so why should I be taxed to support them? People need to be held accountable and responsible for their lives and their decisions, just as I am for mine. 

Bernie's politics would not help me at all. I don't have healthcare and I don't want or need it. I am fine with being responsible for myself. I don't want to be fleeced out of hundreds each month so that I can subsidize diabetes and other people's poor health choices.

They won't have to. I don't need it. I workout every day and have a healthy/balanced diet. I'm in control of my own health, not some doctor and not some health insurance company.

That's some interesting roundabout victim-blaming for cancer patients. 

Or car accident victims. 

Or those with genetic disease.

Or those struck by natural disasters. 

Or those with autoimmune disorders. 

Or type-1 diabetics. 

Or those who suffer work-related injuries. 

Or those with severe allergies. 

Or those with mental health problems. 

Or women who need prenatal care. 

But yeah, fuckin' fatties totally ruining it for everyone m i rite

Yeah you'd rather wait to be fleeced out of hundreds of thousands of dollars and potentially lose everything just to prove your fucking awful take. Jesus christ. Just because you got lucky now with good health doesn't mean in the future cancer, disease, etc may creep up and legit bankrupt you. Do you drive around with no car insurance too because you think you'll never get into an accident and haven't up until now? Like these are failsafes that should be there for americans so we don't have people's lives ruined for things somewhat out of their control.

And the fact that you say you're responsible for yourself with this take just proves how fucking irresponsible you geniunely are.
