Bernie Sanders Democratic Socialism Speech at Georgetown University on November 19, 2015, the Senator explains Democratic Socialism.
I invite those of all
political persuasions to listen to this very thought provoking speech
that calls out his beliefs on equality and social justice by evoking
both Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Martin Luther King. While I do not

Veterans Day 2015
She says the following in a blog post on May 26, 2012 when discussing congressional funding for veterans. "Be Clear: we can't equate spending on veterans with spending on defense. Our strength is not just in the size of our defense budget, but in the size of our hearts, in the size of our gratitude for their sacrifice. And that's not just measured in words or gestures."
Let us remember that it is our obligation to not only honor our veterans but to take care of them as well. As all of us know, we have a lot of work still to do to fulfill that obligation.
Happy Veterans Day 2015.

Chris Christie's Plea To Change How America Handles Drug Addicts
The video of his speech titled, Chris Christie's Plea To Change How America Handles Drug Addicts, has gone viral and, I can see why, because it is a very personal account of his mother and a law school classmate who were addicted to nicotine and pain medication respectively.
The speech was given at a campaign event in Belmont, New Hampshire and his message is that addicts need to be treated instead of judged and jailed. Christie went on to draw a parallel between his pro-life views on abortion and addition. He said “I’m pro-life, and I think that if you’re pro-life that means that you have to be pro-life for the whole life, not just the nine months they are in the womb. It’s easy to be pro-life for the nine months they’re in the womb. They haven’t done anything to disappoint us yet. They’re perfect in there! But when they get out, that’s when it gets tough.”
No matter your views on Chris Christie, abortion, or addiction this video is worth watching!
