    Wassrmann-Schultz has been shown to be a frightful liar in the past.

    Now she has clearly demonstrated that she is dumber than a bag full of hammers.

    That's two strikes.

    Question: How can a person perform their duties as a member of Congress and be the head of the DNC at the same time? She cannot do both jobs satisfactorily...

    Sincerely,
    M
    We are not now that strength which in old days
    Moved earth and heaven; that which we are we are; One equal temper of heroic hearts
    Made weak by time and fate but strong in will
    To strive to seek to find and not to yield.

      The thing that really cracks me up, is the fact that all of the lib's that have replied to this thread have failed to answer the question in pretty much the same way that Ms. Dumber Than a Bagful of Hammers did.

        It's no bad thing that the US has no real understanding of socialism. It's an insidious and self destructive ideology, but what you guys label socialist is at best centre left to the rest of the world.
        Bernie Sanders is a democratic socialist, which is a branch of Marxism...
        Social democratic Marxism

        Various trends of Marxism were created in Europe after Marx. The major one was Social Democracy in Germany by Eduard Bernstein. Bernstein renounced the ideas of violent revolution and economic determinism, and proposed a peaceful acquisition of hegemony through parliamentary democracy.

        Austrian Marxists such as Max Adler, and Otto Bauer, equally renounced violent revolution and argued for the needs of a moral foundation to promote socialism. They attempted to integrate Kantian ethics into Marxism.

        http://www.newworldencyclopedia.org/entry/Marxism

        Therefore Bernie Sanders is a Marxist...
        8. In the book he wrote with Huck Gutman, Outsider in the House, published in 1997: “Bill Clinton is a moderate Democrat. I’m a democratic socialist.”

        9. In an interview with the Guardian in November 2006: “Twenty years ago, when people here thought about socialism they were thinking about the Soviet Union, about Albania. Now they think about Scandinavia. In Vermont people understand I’m talking about democratic socialism.”

        10. In an interview with The Washington Post in November 2006. “I wouldn’t deny it. Not for one second. I’m a democratic socialist. … In Norway, parents get a paid year to care for infants. Finland and Sweden have national health care, free college, affordable housing and a higher standard of living. … . Why shouldn’t that appeal to our disappearing middle class?”

        He says he is not a Communist.

        Social Democracy is a branch of Marxism. It is Communism with less violence, more civil liberties and indirect state ownership of the means of production.

        Social Democracy brings the pot of water to boil slowly, so the frog thinks he's getting a warm bath. Communism just kills the frog outright unless he's quick enough to jump out of the pot.

        Ms. Dumber Than a Bagful of Hammers couldn't differentiate Hillary Clinton (Democrat) from Bernie Sanders socialist), in part, because there are no genuine ideological differences.

        Social Democracy is an intermediate step in the Marxist transition from capitalism to socialism and utopia.

        For those still unclear on the concept...

        Social democracy
        Written by The Editors of Encyclopædia Britannica
        Last Updated 6-17-2014

        Social democracy, political ideology that advocates a peaceful, evolutionary transition of society from capitalism to socialism using established political processes. Based on 19th-century socialism and the tenets of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels, social democracy shares common ideological roots with communism but eschews its militancy and totalitarianism. Social democracy was originally known as revisionism because it represented a change in basic Marxist doctrine, primarily in the former’s repudiation of the use of revolution to establish a socialist society.

        I prefer Marxists who carry AK47's... less thought involved in shooting them.

          In many ways, seem to be talking the difference between red apples and green apples, QUOTE:

          " Instead of focusing on “left” or “right”, our founders were more concerned about “how much”. How much government is enough to protect our life, liberty and property from internal and external threats, without being oppressive? They envisioned the political spectrum as a continuous line from zero government on one end, to total government on the other. The “right” amount was somewhere in between — maybe 25% to 30%. "

            In our spectrum Dems are right of centre, and the GOP are far right loonies.

            I do, however, look forward to the day a real socialist party gains power in the US. Not because I think socialism is a good thing, but just to see the looks on the faces of the average Yank when they see what it really looks like.
            Just a few years before the United Kingdom was suffering through her "Winter of Discontent," the City of New York was stumbling her way through the "Fiscal Crisis." Like the UK, we endured all kinds of "the people" rhetoric sounding as if it were all lifted from the same script, strikes, riots, declining public services, an eroding tax base, a "brain drain," and a loss of sovereignty as a condition of emergency bailout funding. While no NYC political figure could be viewed as a socialist in the vein of the British Labour Party, NYC enacted a number of policies which would have been quite familiar to Labourites, and some of the same special interests wielded disproportionate influence over public policy -- leading to very similar results. So whether liberal/progressive Democrats are socialists in the classic European mold is actually irrelevant: the blather, and the results, were indistinguishable, and I've not seen that reality change in any substantive manner.

            I disagree. As a Congressman, her first duty is to ensure her reelection. To that end she expends the lion's share of her time, effort, and mental energy raising campaign donations. As chairman of the Democrat National Committee, she is her party's chief fundraiser. From where I sit, the duties of her two positions are virtually identical.

                Indirect state ownership of the means of production is Statist Captialism.. The Left has long used it as an alternative to Communist control (ie., the State owns the economy) of an economy.

                https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/State_capitalism

                It gives ownership of major industry to private individuals but the state decides production, regulates the industry, controls the workers, etc. In a sense it might be described as "Trickle down Communism."

                The Democrats today are big, big fans of Statist Capitalism, as are Obama and Hillary.

                  According to the Florida-based Shark Tank blog, which obtained audio from the event, the Florida Democratic congresswoman didn’t pull any punches during the event with the Jewish Federation of Miami. She said she’d caught an MSNBC segment that morning about the situation in Gaza where “clearly they were highlighting what Israel had done to Gaza and the plight to Palestinians.”

                  “My first thought was, where is the balance?” Wasserman Schultz said on the recording. “Where is the spotlight on what Jewish children in Israel go through, from being victims of rocket attacks in Sderot and southern Israel and the constant needing to flee into a bomb shelter?”

                  But Wasserman Schultz, a frequent MSNBC guest, said it’s not just MSNBC.

                  “The media’s coverage, and it’s not just MSNBC, I’ve seen it on CNN and even the broadcast media as well,” she said. “We have work to do. We have work to do to educate and to make sure that people understand that there’s a very simple solution to this: It’s called recognize Israel’s right to exist as a Jewish and democratic state. Let’s make sure that we can adopt a two-state solution where you have a Palestinian state and a state of Israel living side by side in peace, and let’s make sure that we have in communities all around the world the adults not raising their children and teaching their children to hate us, to hate Israel and to hate Jews simply because of who we are.”

                  Some of the folks itt whom are insulting Schultz may have inadvertently praised Shultz at one time or another.

                    I'd bet it is far more her pandering to the American Jewish community that is heavily Progressive and a group the Democrats rely on for both votes and donations far more than it is any heartfelt actual empathy for Israel...

                      Obama is more of a cross between a socialist and an autocrat. He wants to redistribute wealth - a communist socialist doctrine - while remaining one of the elite himself.

                      Hildebeast is just a rich b**** who wants to rule America.
