To be honest, I'd love to be a millionaire, too. Who wouldn't love to
sell thousands of books or get large amounts to express your opinion?

What a country! They don't let you do that in Cuba or Venezuela or the
old USSR where we hear that Bernie and wife spent their honeymoon. (By
the way, we learned later that Mr. and Mrs. Sanders were there as part of
his duties as Mayor of Burlington, VT.)

Unfortunately, this is not a story about a guy who started a business and
created countless of jobs. This is the story of a man named Bernie
Sanders:

Thanks in large part to his successful foray into authorship, Sen. Bernie
Sanders (I-Vt.) made more than $1 million in 2016. That’s according to
his latest U.S. Senate financial disclosure, which he filed Sunday after
receiving a 20-day extension.

The most notable source of income: book royalties. Sanders received a
$795,000 advance for his best-selling book, “Our Revolution.” He got
another $63,750 for his forthcoming “Bernie Sanders’ Guide to Political
Revolution,” a book aimed at young readers co-authored with Kate Waters.
And he took in $6,735 in royalties for his 1997 memoir "Outsider in the
House."

That’s more than $865,000 for peddling his working-class ideas. Not bad.

Then there's the $2,521 Sanders earned last year in royalties for his
1987 spoken-word folk album, We Shall Overcome.

Overcome what Mr. Sanders? Your hysterical hypocrisy?

Wonder if he opened an offshore account to protect his income from US tax
laws?

P.S. You can listen to my show (Canto Talk), (YouTube) and follow me on
Twitter.

Feel the Bern, suckers?

We have the greediest self-serving plutocrats in history running the
country.

So why is Mr Trump and his family gouging even more money from the
public?

Unlike Bernie, he doesn't hypocritically shame others for having
wealth.

They're planning tax cuts at the expense of low earners. Also
they will reduce medical benefits for 23 million people to let big
companies pay less tax.

So are you saying that makes it okay for Trump and friends to gorge
themselves on money dishonestly obtained from public funds? I don't
think so.

I was thinking about the 'it is easier for camel...' in reference to Lazarus.
Lazarus was landowner and wealthy enough to provide for Jesus and his band of
hoboes. So having some money itself isn't the problem. Then you look at people
at like Donald the Orange who have enough for multiple lifetimes and they're
still greedy shits. It appears what Jesus is really condemning is the attitude
of most rich people, a greed and utter lack of empathy, and the inability to
love.

That certainly sums up Trump. The trump family is chiselling away at
making money from their official positions: Mar A Lago memberships,
Ivanka's new Chinese trademarks, charging for hosting conferences,
foreign delegations staying at Trump's US and foreign hotels, and any
number of backhanders in construction projects.

Why? Trump has more than enough to feed his belly. He's not known
for his philanthropic acts like many very rich people.

What's he going to do with all his ill-gotten loot? And why does he
need more?

An elderly laywer was about to die. One day he told his wife he had
come up with a way to take all of the money he had with him to heaven.
He told his wife to put all of his money in the attic so when he died
he could grab it on the way up.

A couple of weeks after he died his wife was cleaning out the attic
and saw that the money bags were still there. "That old fool," she
chuckled. "I told him that we should have put the money in the
basement!"

If you have evidence of this, you might want to contact the
