Is Bernie Sanders Suffering From Dementia?

Bernie Sanders says “Nobody can recall” – when the problem is strictly his own faulty memory.

Bernie can’t remember 1990, which explains why he wants to do a repeat of the Soviet Union in 2015. The Berlin Wall fell in 1989.

    I worry if you are surprised at this!

  2. willys36 says:

    s Michael Savage, radio commentator observes. “Liberalism is a metal disorder.” Bernie, Algore, Hussein, Mrs. Clinton, SanFranNan, et all, suffer from a form of ultra-early onset dementia.

    • Stewart Pid says:

      metal disorder …. WTF??

      • Gail Combs says:

        Yeah mental disorder.
        They do not believe in reality outside of their own heads.
        They think everything they want will come true if they close their eyes, wish real hard, convince others and toss temper tantrums.
        So what else would you call denying reality, that is thinking “Objective phenomena and events were of no consequence” but a mental disorder?
        The Philosophy Of Karl Marx

        The philosophical bases of Marx’s thought were laid early and remained unchanged throughout his life. As a student, Marx accepted the philosophy of Hegel as the only sound and adequate explanation of the universe….

        Hegel accepted as real only that which existed in the mind. Objective phenomena and events were of no consequence; only the conceptions of them possessed by human minds were real. Ideas, not objects, were the stuff of which the universe was made. The universe and all events therein existed and took place only in the mind, and any change was a change in ideas.

        This is the type of Philosophy (Idealists) that was taught in American schools. Kant, Hegel and Fichte for example.

  3. Neal S says:

    While nobody can recall their own birth, that hardly means it didn’t happen. It is foolish to deny something just because someone doesn’t recall it. Until the records are scrubbed clean, there are still some records.

    • Yeah, but that was Independent Senator Bernie Sanders @SenSanders not recalling:

      Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders ‏@BernieSanders recalls just fine what he has seen around the world:

      “The debate is over. Climate change is real and caused by human activity. It’s already causing devastating problems around the world.”

      • Gail Combs says:

        “The debate is over. Climate change is real and caused by human activity. It’s already causing devastating problems around the world.”

        Again this is Hegelian Philosophy

        In the Hegelian philosophy no idea could exist without an opposite. Thus, the idea of light could not exist unless there were an idea of darkness, nor truth without falsity, nor high without low. If an idea were labeled a thesis, its opposite would be its antithesis. Consequently, in this realm of the mind within which the universe had its only real existence, innumerable theses and antitheses existed. Struggle or conflict was the en-evitable fact in such a universe—conflict of the thesis with its antithesis. In this struggle thesis and antithesis acted and reacted on each other, and a new phenomenon—synthesis—was created. All action or change occurring in the universe was, under the Hegelian philosophy, the product of thesis, antithesis, and resulting synthesis—all in the realm of ideas, since objective reality could exist only in that sphere. Since this process was universal and never ending, it offered a complete explanation of the causal processes creating all phenomena within the universe.

        What we ‘Deniers’ are doing is denying the synthesis. We are trying to go BACKWARD while the Progressives are trying to Progress forward.

        Thesis (natural) + Antithesis (man caused) ===> resulting Synthesis (Man causes climate change)
        That synthesis becomes the new thesis and we get a new thesis vs antithesis (Various methods for mitigation and adaption) resulting in a new synthesis, the agreement on the correct mitigation/ adaption (Climate Tax, Carbon Exchange and Climate Fund)

        • docfjs says:

          Sounds like BS to me. I doubt if Bernie has ever heard of Hegel.

        • Bernie is Hegel. He wants to be the 7th Marx Brother.

        • Gail Combs says:

          docfjs says “….Sounds like BS to me. I doubt if Bernie has ever heard of Hegel.”

          AHHHhh, yes the typical low information socialist troll who has no idea of who put the thoughts in his head — That is what few thoughts he might have.

          Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel was the philosophical mentor of Karl Marx. If I, someone who never studied. philosophy knows this simple fact, why would anyone think Bernie Sanders, with a driving interest in Marx and socialism would not?
          Bernie Sanders Found Socialism at the University of Chicago

          …On campus, he joined the Young People’s Socialist League…
          He has admitted to being a middling student at U. of C., reading Marx and Freud on his own while investing lightly in preparing for classes and taking tests…

          He has never run from the socialist label: One of his heroes, memorialized by a portrait hanging in his office, is Eugene V. Debs, the founder of the Social Democratic Party of America….

        • docfjs says:

          I am quite familiar with Hegel’s connection with Marx and Bernie’s Marxist leanings but it’s really a stretch to connect his ideas on global climate change with Hegel’s “meaningless verbiage” as Karl Popper called them. I am pretty sure that Bernie could also explain his position on gun control on Hegel’s dialectic but so what?
          What I am saying is that Hegel is full of BS also.

      • I thought it would be useful to watch the dance of the demented. Here is a snapshot from Bernie’s two tweets as of right now:

        Nobody can recall a Christmas Eve …
        2,112 Retweets 4,698 likes

        The debate is over …
        2,059 Retweets 4,690 likes

      • Gail Combs says:

        docfjs, I agree Hegel (and Marx) are full of B.S. Unfortunately it doesn’t mean Progressive schools systems aren’t trying to stuff his crap into people’s heads.

        The last dose I got was at a week long management seminar for foreman and such. I sent the poor guy packing practically in tears followed by gales of laughter.

        There were train tracks outside the window and a train due in about fifteen minutes. It was just too perfect not to take advantage of…. Now what was that about not knowing what reality is? Want to place any bets? Just make out your will leaving me everything before you lie down on the tracks…

  4. docfjs says:

    66 degrees in Troy NY on December 24th, 1990?
    Bernie was probably in Moscow or Havana getting his mind cleaned that day. Give the old Commie a break.

  5. markstoval says:

    Did that idiot claim there have been no Christmas days over 65F? Son of a gun. He must never have heard of Orlando Florida.

  6. lectrikdog says:

    I recall at least 2 Christmas days that were close to 70F in N. IL. I’m 60. Bernie’s a burn out.

    • Powers says:

      And do you remember those brutal winters in N.IL in the late 70’s? I recall one year, 27 days Jan into Feb where the temperature never rose above Zero, wind chills would sting the face, and snow that had to be pushed off the roof with brooms and shovels. I was attending NIU in those days and the science prognosticators where submitting cover stories to Time and Newsweek about the coming Ice Age. Come on Bernie!

  7. scott allen says:

    Liberals never cease to amaze me. They regularly accuse the conservatives of being anti science but they never actually look at the science they talk about. When they do talk about science they quote an obscure or retracted study.

    • docfjs says:

      That’s because they really don’t care about the science and don’t actually give a damn if the earth is warming or cooling. They do care about advancing their goal of destroying Capitalism and creating a socialist world order.

      • Gail Combs says:

        And when those babied, spoiled, silver-spoon socialists finally find out what their Utopia socialist world with an 83% reduction of CO2 emisions really means, they will scream bloody murder and their soft fat useless bodies will die in droves.

        Their non-carbon world is a life in the equivalent of the 17th century with a layer of feudalism added. It is a time when farmers made up about 90% of the labor force. A time when crude wooden plows were used, all sowing was done by hand, cultivating by wooden hoe, hay and grain cutting with sickle, and threshing with flail. — And everything was powered by human labor. A time when presious steel pins were used as money by the poor. (This BTW was the reason for slavery.)

        Forget about horses, mules or oxen as a source of energy. They eat about 1/3 to one half of the farm’s production so will be banned on the collective farms.

        Wind and solar, being low energy and intermittent, can not pump water out of mines reliably or smelt the ores so forget any technology dependent on metal. Any modern wind and solar can not be replaced and the USA rapidly descends into a third world country with a major population reduction. The inner city Gimmes will be driven out into the fields and if useless slaughtered by government troops (Why do you think Homeland Security bought 1.6 Billion Rounds of Ammo and is now coordinated local police in Fusion Centers ?)

        Think Pol Pot writ large. The Soviet Union with its attempts to modernize and use of fosil fuels would be heaven in comparison.

        • Gail Combs says:

          Am I kidding? No I am very serious. I did the calculations on what it means to lower our CO2 footprint by 83% a while ago.

          The average energy use for the USA is 335.9 million BTUs per person.

          The U.S. in 1800 had a per-capita energy consumption of about 90 million Btu.

          Therefore if the USA reduces its energy consumption by 83% it equals 57.1 million Btu. per person. If you are talking 83% reduction of the 2008 level for the entire USA then you also have to take population growth (all those illegals…) into account.

          Population of USA in 2008 — 304.1 million
          Population of USA in 2008 — 318.9 million
          U.S. population is projected to grow by 89 million by 2050 (Pew Reports Feb 2014) or an increase in the population of 1/3 or 103.8 million. Or a total population of 407.9 million.

          That means 42.5 BTUs per person. or less than half the fossil fuel/CO2 emitting energy per capita as was used in 1800. Like I said back to the 1700s with little to no use of metals by the general population.

  8. Andy DC says:

    Some of the catastrophic consequences of the warm December have been lower heating bills, golf courses green and open for business, roses blooming on Christmas and people not wearing jackets. We are going to die!

  9. He’s probably talking about the same Nobody who would disagree that we need to redistribute the wealth and prohibit self defense.

  10. 49erfan7 says:

    It’s all about redistributing wealth and spending other people’s money. Have you read about the new Bernie Sanders drinking game? It’s the rage on college campuses.

    The rules are simple. Every time Bernie announces or promotes a ‘free’ government give-away program you grab the guy’s sitting to your right’s beer and drink it down and shake your arms after singing that money grows on trees. The trick is to only buy cheap beer for yourself, and sit to the left of the guy buying the expensive beer.

  11. gregole says:

    Hey, you know, come to think of it, 65 deg F on Christmas day is kind of nice.

  12. Powers says:

    At 65 i recall things with perfect clarity. Unfortunately my family has to correct me at every turn.

  13. JPinBalt says:

    If Bernie says, “Nobody can recall a Christmas Eve where the temperature was 65 degrees.” … I prefer to vote for that Nobody who takes the red pill and sees the truth and facts. Bernie and other democrats believing in an artificial politically made-up dreamland have long been taking the blue pill which can alter memories creating a fictitious “truth.”

  14. gator69 says:

    Another BS tweet…

    It makes no sense that students and their parents pay higher interest rates for college than they pay for car loans or housing mortgages.
    -Bernie Sanders, Democrat Hippie

    Looks like somebody skipped their Economics 101 class for a pipe dream.

    • Ted says:

      I actually think Bernie may be on to something with this one. Student loans come almost entirely from the federal government. Auto loans come mostly from Ally Financial, which is just the burned out hull of GMAC, and, until just last year, was 100% owned by that same government. Since at least 2008, both auto and student loans have been primarily for the purpose of back door monetary stimulus, and have been mostly untouched by market forces. In each industry, I’d argue that those ninja loans currently ARE the dominant market force. And the rates for both are set almost entirely at the whim of government. The closest thing to a market force involved is fear. Potential car buyers have little fear of going without a brand new Navigator, so removing all qualifications for the loans wasn’t enough. They had to cut the rates to zero, and extend the terms to 7+ years. High school students, on the other hand, are so scared of not getting a degree that removing all qualifications was plenty to fill the schools to beyond capacity. They won’t need to lower rates until there are unfilled seats in the colleges.

      Since the rates on both loans are currently set by governmental fiat, I have to agree with Bernie that the college students are getting schlonged, to borrow a term from a much better economist. They’re paying exorbitant rates, not based on time value of money, or repayment risk, but based on the fear that the government itself induced in them.

      The solution, of course, is not to lower rates on the students, or raise rates on the car buyers. It’s to get the government out of both industries. If actual people were originating those loans, they’d set the qualifications to a realistic level, and the interest rates would float appropriately. People would have to actually qualify for loans. There would have to be some realistic plan for repayment. We’d have a lot fewer people in college, and they’d be studying things that might actually contribute to the system. Personally, I’ve always found it absurd that a student loan for a lesbian studies degree carries the same interest rate as one for nuclear engineering. The risk pools are incomparable. But as long as the government keeps it’s nose in it, that absurdity will continue to stand.

      So I agree with Bernie, about the problem. But his “solution” is more of the same, and can only make the situation worse.

      • gator69 says:

        It is simple, one is called a “secured loan”, and the other is an “unsecured loan”. Banks don’t just make this stuff up, it matters.

        • Ted says:

          But banks aren’t involved in either, any more. That’s my point. I’m saying that your position SHOULD be correct, but the government no longer allows it to be.

        • gator69 says:

          Of course banks are involved, they are required! Bad governments need a scape goat

      • Jason Calley says:

        Amen! And while we are at it, get private banks out of the “creating-money-out-of-nothing” scam.

      • Gail Combs says:

        Actually if you look at the situation, student loans sky rocketed because the student loans made it unnecessary for universities to practice fiscal restraint.

        I didn’t keep the link but someone did the analysis and found the sky rocketing cost of a college education was cause by a skyrocketing college bureaucracy!

        A quick look found a link.

        Administrators Ate My Tuition

        …Between 1975 and 2005, total spending by American higher educational institutions, stated in constant dollars, tripled, to more than $325 billion per year. Over the same period, the faculty-to-student ratio has remained fairly constant, at approximately fifteen or sixteen students per instructor. One thing that has changed, dramatically, is the administrator-per-student ratio. In 1975, colleges employed one administrator for every eighty-four students and one professional staffer—admissions officers, information technology specialists, and the like—for every fifty students. By 2005, the administrator-to-student ratio had dropped to one administrator for every sixty-eight students while the ratio of professional staffers had dropped to one for every twenty-one students.

        Apparently, as colleges and universities have had more money to spend, they have not chosen to spend it on expanding their instructional resources—that is, on paying faculty. They have chosen, instead, to enhance their administrative and staff resources. A comprehensive study published by the Delta Cost Project in 2010 reported that between 1998 and 2008, America’s private colleges increased spending on instruction by 22 percent while increasing spending on administration and staff support by 36 percent. Parents who wonder why college tuition is so high and why it increases so much each year may be less than pleased to learn that their sons and daughters will have an opportunity to interact with more administrators and staffers— but not more professors. Well, you can’t have everything….
        Today, administrators and staffers safely outnumber full-time faculty members on campus.

        And the Admin salary are doing very nicely too.

        Well we now know where all the liberals with basket weaving degrees ended up…

        I rather deal directly with the root cause of the problem.
        START FIRING !!!

        • gator69 says:

          Let’s look at endowments!

          Harvard University (MA) $36,429,256,000
          Yale University (CT) $23,858,561,000
          Stanford University (CA) $21,466,006,000
          Princeton University (NJ) $20,576,361,000

          Harvard has roughly 21,000 students who pay on average just under $46,000 for a 4 year degree. Harvard could pay for every one of its student’s educations for the next 37 years with what it currently holds in endowments. So why do these institutions get tax breaks, and why are we mad at banks?

        • Jason Calley says:

          Our education system has gone down basically the same path that our healthcare system has — and for the same reasons. Inject vast sums of gummint money into a market and you get vast distortions of the market pricing function.

          As for the growth of university administrations, a good place to look is at “Professor Doom” as he calls himself, has plenty of stories on the subject. That is also one of the reasons why the quality of education has fallen. More and more money has attracted a class of administrators who are more interested in money than in teaching students. The result is a demand to the faculty that they water down courses so that more and more sub-qualified students can enroll and pass and (most importantly!) keep paying for more courses.

        • Gail Combs says:

          As I said guys, root cause.

          The whole mess started from the liberal whining that college educated SMART people made big bucks. So the Govmint had to DO SOMETHING!

          Now we have a bunch of ‘college educated’ numbskulls with a huge debt and no real job skills. On top of that corporations are forced to hire the spoiled rotten numbskulls that are worse than deadweight and society as a whole loses.

        • Gail Combs says:

          It occurs to me that this thread is a good example of a worthwhile discussion with different people with differing viewpoints.

        • gator69 says:

          Gail, you call a few elites “banksters”, and smear an entire industry. That is the plain truth of it.

        • I always enjoy a little lovers’ spat but gator never defended “banksters”.

          Now I have to run and duck …

        • Gail Combs says:

          OK, I’m sorry…
          Actually I was just yanking your chain. I do agree it is the International Bankers who own/control the Fed that are the problem. The small bankers and western bankers were just as ticked off as everyone else with the 1913 Christmas Eve Act of treason.

        • gator69 says:

          Gail, I wish everyone could sit in on our board meetings, and hear the same discussions there that we get here. Bankers in general are conservative to libertarian, and want a free market system. I don’t know of a single Obama or Fed supporter in my office.

  15. Justa Joe says:

    With age comes wisdom also the realization that there is nothing new under the sun. Based on this I would say that Bernie is intentionally broadcasting propaganda that he knows to be false in an effort to garner more power over the masses.

  16. amirlach says:

    The Russians just laugh at all these tired old losers in the Democratic party.

    Jump ahead to see Putin’s mocking add that was played on RT while Kerry was meeting in Moscow. 3:22

    • Gail Combs says:

      Putin is more of a leader than anything we have in the District of Criminals.
      October 26th, 2014 Speech by Putin with an introduction by Dr. Paul Craig Roberts

      ….Let me say in this respect that I will also not let you down and will speak directly and frankly. Some of what I say might seem a bit too harsh, but if we do not speak directly and honestly about what we really think, then there is little point in even meeting in this way. It would be better in that case just to keep to diplomatic get-togethers, where no one says anything of real sense and, recalling the words of one famous diplomat, you realise that diplomats have tongues so as not to speak the truth.

      We get together for other reasons. We get together so as to talk frankly with each other. We need to be direct and blunt today not so as to trade barbs, but so as to attempt to get to the bottom of what is actually happening in the world, try to understand why the world is becoming less safe and more unpredictable, and why the risks are increasing everywhere around us….

      We have entered a period of differing interpretations and deliberate silences in world politics. International law has been forced to retreat over and over by the onslaught of legal nihilism. Objectivity and justice have been sacrificed on the altar of political expediency. Arbitrary interpretations and biased assessments have replaced legal norms. At the same time, total control of the global mass media has made it possible when desired to portray white as black and black as white.
      In a situation where you had domination by one country and its allies, or its satellites rather, the search for global solutions often turned into an attempt to impose their own universal recipes. This group’s ambitions grew so big that they started presenting the policies they put together in their corridors of power as the view of the entire international community. But this is not the case.
      The very notion of ‘national sovereignty’ became a relative value for most countries. In essence, what was being proposed was the formula: the greater the loyalty towards the world’s sole power centre, the greater this or that ruling regime’s legitimacy…..

      One of the Democrats Attack e-mails (Hubby gets them) shows the Republican presidential tick as Trump/Putin. I say Bring it ON, I vote that tick if Putin had the loyalty to the USA that he has for Russia.

      Another bit of Progressive projection me thinks.
