Kids Say The Darndest Things

Repeating Hearsay,

Those wacky Sanders supporters...
When asked why her friends would vote for Republican candidate Donald Trump over Clinton, Frederick explained, “They all say she’s corrupt, she’s crooked, she’s beholden to Wall Street — that she lies. She changes her line according to what her banker donor friends tell her to do.”

"That a long-time, lone-ranger Senator can get this far is a tribute to his focus on widely-felt, repressed priorities. His candidacy is contrasted with the avarice of the plutocratic/oligarchic corporate state. This dominant corporatism possesses few loyalties to country and community other than to control them while treating the workers’ economy with disinvestment and unbridled globalization." Ralph Nader

"That challenge could be overcome if Sanders accepts a recent invitation from Green Party frontrunner Jill Stein, who offered the Vermont Senator her position on the ballot, should he decide to contest what many suggest is a broken two-party system. The Green Party is eligible for ballot access in 40 states, and political analysts suspect Sanders could run an effective write-in campaign in the remaining contests."

How to destroy a real economy with smart parasites: 
"With very few exceptions, MBA education today is basically an education in finance, not business—a major distinction. So it’s no wonder that business leaders make many of the finance-friendly decisions. MBA programs don’t churn out innovators well prepared to cope with a fast-changing world, or leaders who can stand up to the Street and put the long-term health of their company (not to mention their customers) first; they churn out followers who learn how to run firms by the numbers...  If you wonder why most businesses still think of shareholders as their main priority or treat skilled labor as a cost rather than an asset—or why 80 percent of CEOs surveyed in one study said they’d pass up making an investment that would fuel a decade’s worth of innovation if it meant they’d miss a quarter of earnings results— it’s because that’s exactly what they are being educated to do."

"Fellow Americans, if you care to avoid vaporization and, assuming we do avoid it, live a life other than serfdom, you must wake up and realize that your most deadly enemy is Washington, not the hoax of “Russian aggression,” not the hoax of “Muslim terrorism,” not the hoax of “domestic extremism,” not the hoax of welfare bankrupting America, not the hoax of democracy voting away your wealth, which Wall Street and the corporations have already stolen and stuck in their pockets." Paul Craig Roberts

The fight against Islamic State forces in Syria appears to be at a turning point. For the first time since the start of hostilities, two anti-terror coalitions (those led by Russia and those pro-U.S.) have, in effect, joined efforts to liberate Raqqa, the de facto ISIS capital. 
“Targets are chosen on the basis of space reconnaissance and covert intelligence, while the Syrian army’s actions are coordinated with our military advisers,” the source said. “We have established contact with the U.S.-led coalition, but there is no joint operation planning on the cards. We have proposed it, but the U.S. does not want to have full-fledged cooperation with us,” said the source.

Meanwhile Turkey sends some kinda' Sunni jihadis to Aleppo, to try to carve a province out of Syria, maybe give ISIS a new "Capitol".

They told him not to expect to give a speech at Muhammad Ali's funeral, but...
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has promptly finished his visit to the US and will skip the final farewell to legendary boxer Muhammad Ali, amid reports that he had been refused permission to deliver a speech at the funeral and had been prevented from undertaking some religious rituals.
