This is the guy who, as a presidential candidate, wants to control your money. Here’s “Profile of a Do-Nothing: Bernie Sanders”:
It took 40 years for Bernie Sanders to find a job.
From his humble beginnings in a three-room Brooklyn apartment, Bernie’s aspirations were never very grand.
Even after he got his college degree from the University of Chicago, Bernie was a layabout, a slacker – a bum.
He tried various odd jobs to support his slovenly lifestyle. Once working as a carpenter (he was very bad at that) and then as a hack-writer for $50 per article, talking about masturbation and rape. That didn’t pan out too well.
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.” So he went from a dirt-floor shack to 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.’
His apartment was filthy, his electricity was routinely shut off, and he drove around in a rusted out VW Bug. But he liked to talk. He’d talk about socialism – how the rich people were “ripping everyone off.” About greed and how “greed” is the entire driving force in America. “‘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 decided to start a socialist party. In leftist, wackadoo Vermont, you’d think that would be welcomed. He wasn’t even good at that. He ran for office four times – losing badly every time. Finally, at 40, he managed to get himself elected as mayor of Burlington. The socialist was proud of what he accomplished – not making mayor, but actually getting a real job. ‘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.
The radical agitator managed to get himself elected to Congress some years later, then to the United State Senate in 2006.
This is the man who wants your money. Wants to raise taxes to astronomic levels. Rush Limbaugh takes it from here:
Save for a municipal pension, Sanders lists no assets in his name. All the assets provided in his financial disclosure form are his second wife’s. He does, however, have as much as $65,000 in credit-card debt.” His first job was a government paycheck, at 40 years old. He’s a “bum.” Dirt floor shack, and his wife amazingly, strangely, left him. I mean, that’s kind of cruel, right?
