Wonderful! I almost fell off my chair when I saw the photo from Twilight: Breaking Dawn 1.

One of the surprising highlights of the inauguration were Senator Bernie Sanders and his delightful mittens. Naturally they’re appearing all over the internet in the form of clever memes, so here are some of my favorites.

Bernie Sander’s Promises of Minimum Wage and Expungement of Marijuana Convictions Are Misleading

Included in his misleading is demonizing billionaires and criticizing Joe Biden for voting for the 2005 bankruptcy bill.

In the 2016 primary, I voted for Bernie Sanders.  This time around I hear a Bernie Sanders who sounds envious, angry, and who is misleading.

This is America where citizens have the right to follow their American dream.  If that means becoming a billionaire, then it should not be demonized.  Yes, billionaires should pay their fair share of taxes, but complaining about billionaires and corporate America buying Congress is not the real problem.  The real problem are those in Congress who allow themselves to be bought.

Bernie Sanders’ Criticism of BAPCPA

Bernie Sanders complains about the bankruptcy bill that Joe Biden voted for.  The Bill passed in 2005.  Sanders’ complaint is that it makes it more difficult for people to discharge debts, and he blames creditors for wanting the 2005 Bill.  Sanders omits how that law provides protection for consumers who use attorneys to file for bankruptcy.

Creditors had a right to complain about bankruptcy law leading to the 2005 Bill.  What Congress gave to creditors and debtors is requirements that lawyers who file bankruptcy petitions for clients must personally vouch for the accuracy of all the information their clients provide.  That was the root problem, and it harmed creditors and debtors.

A reason given in the U.S. House of Representatives Judiciary Committee Report 109-031 for the need for The Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act of 2005, (BAPCPA) was;

“A civil enforcement initiative undertaken in 2002 by the United States Trustee Program (a component of the Justice Department charged with administrative oversight of bankruptcy cases) has consistently identified such problems as debtor misconduct and abuse, misconduct by attorneys and other professionals, … “

AP DEM DEBATE FACT CHECK: Clinton Vs. Sanders On Wall Street

Thanks for the fact checks. I’m still applauding Bernie for telling Hillary that her term “superpredators” is racist.

A look at some of the claims in the latest Democratic presidential debate and how they compare with the facts:

CLINTON: “I’m the only one on this stage who did not vote to deregulate swaps and derivatives, as Sen. Sanders did … and that contributed to the collapse of Lehman Brothers and started the cascade.”

THE FACTS: The legislation in question was signed into law by President Bill Clinton.

Hillary Clinton was in no position to vote for — or against — it because she…

Comedian Amy Schumer and U.S. Sen. Chuck Schumer are teaming up to call for stricter gun laws, appearing together on Sunday in New York to push for expanded gun control legislation.

The Schumers, who are cousins, first announced their collaboration earlier this year after a deadly shooting in a Louisiana theater, where Amy’s movie Trainwreck was being screened.

“I don’t know why he picked my movie but … it’s something that I live with every day and I vowed to never forget the two lives that were tragically lost: Jillian Johnson, who was 33, and Mayci Breaux, who was just 21-years-old. These women are forever in my heart,” Schumer said on Sunday, the New York Daily News reports.

Sen. Chuck Schumer is pushing a proposal to prevent violent criminals, abusers and those with severe mental illnesses from purchasing firearms.
