  1. What if you are a vegetarian/vegan? There should be options and that might sway a vote in a more diverse crowd. Yes, I live in CA, but not either. It's all about marketing. I'm sure I'll get some sort of backlash, but I am entitled to my opinion too.

  2. How does Beto plan to "buy back" all these guns ? Did he sell them ? Oh, he must mean CONFISCATION … just like the Nazi's and other evil dictators did over the course of world history.

  3. NBC always exaggerates Democrat crowds and usually doesn't even report on the much larger Republican crowds … and Republicans have jobs and bills/taxes to pay. Republicans usually don't have as much free time as Democrats.

  4. Warren is 4 years too early,Biden is 12 years too late,and left wing major medias are trying to undermine Sanders almost as hard as they are hitting trump.So i guess another 4 years of orange time is coming.

  5. A few people by the names of Robert Butler and Claire barber

    were trying to tell me that I have herpers with out telling me. After a few months a few months I met a girl by the Lisa Anne Jones/Moyer which I dated for 9 month. Really bery Butler tried to tell me the whispers we're about to start. He suggested that I drive my car And turn the music up as loud as I could. Lisa Anne Jones/Moyer started messing my head really badly and people from my past we're brought up by people who were close to where I was standing so could over hear the conversation. I really don't think Lisa Anne Jones was her name because she couldn't even sign her own name after she used her debt card. I got tested but all they did was take blood. The doctor told me I was negative, but I remember having sores on my gentles when I was 17 years old. The strange conversations continued and the "whispers" started but it wasn't whispers. Everyone was screaming at and telling me how bad of a person I am. I still haven't figured out how they're doing this but I feel like my dreams have been messed with also. Kinda like I've had a blanket put around me and no one will help me with anything.

    I'm pretty sure Robert Butler's ex wife works for the CDC.

  6. I thought they were against America eating meat because the cows were destroying the planet, now they are cooking it for people?

  7. Still waiting for NBC to call out the Democrats' hypocrisy for wanting to ban beef consumption, but still eating steaks themselves.
