    Any bakery can refuse to bake a cake for the KKK because the KKK is not a protected group; any business can likely refuse to make a confederate flag cake as well for any old dude, but can't outright refuse that dude any service.

    Bernie would undoubtedly effectively raise taxes on just about everyone - but those same people would no longer need to pay for health care, and subsidies would b e built into the program by default given the nature of single payer.  He would also likely cut some spending programs.  His 12 step program says 100 billion in tax dollars lost due to corporate tax evasion (http://www.sanders.senate.gov/agenda/), so that's a hefty amount, but obviously he'd need more from other places as well.

    Though I think some of these actions are getting a bit out of hand, it is within the right of the company to undertake them.  However, I would never support legislation to ban the personal use of the flag.
    Banning it flying over government/public buildings, though?  No problem from me there.

    I do think they will play up the anti-Communism.  Someone will point out he wanted Vermont to take over its utilities in the 70s during the energy crisis (though from what I am told this was actually a real debate back then, so it isn't as "crazy" as it sounds today).
    If Clinton attacks him as sexist or anti African American, I'm ... well, you know what, I'm not voting for her anyway, so I guess it doesn't matter.  I just can't get behind her, and my vote has almost no meaning outside of primaries, so...

    Sanders vs Clinton, in a nut shell:
    Great read, Tee.  Thanks.
    He has no chance of getting close to Clinton's money, but if he keeps drawing crowds of thousands while she attends fundraisers, it may not matter.

    You should have seen some of Bernie's ads in VT. When people attack him he just refutes them. It's the craziest thing. I don't think I ever saw him run an attack ad. Ever.

    ​It isn't like Lebron doesn't take clutch shots.  He takes plenty.  Percentages exist for a reason.  early in his career he didn't seem nearly as clutch or as ruthless, but that has changed.  Especially this year...
    While your one-shot thing might be right, if I had to take one player to get me points on a possession, it would be LBJ over Kobe every day of the week.

    ​Not trying to knock Kemba, but when he is leading a team of scrubs to the lead in the finals, he can be as inefficient as he wants.
    Remember, people knocked James' efficiency plenty in past playoffs (most notably in his first finals appearance).
    Winning is what matters.
