David Deming, a professor of arts and sciences at the University of Oklahoma, called the gravitation of millennials towards Bernie Sanders a “symptom of our failure to educate them” in an op-ed published Saturday.

“It’s disheartening that an avowed socialist is a viable candidate for president of the United States. Socialism is a dead end. For hundreds of years, it has failed everywhere it’s been adopted. The enthusiasm of our youth for the candidacy of Bernie Sanders is a symptom of our failure to educate them, not only in history, government and economics, but also basic morality,” Deming wrote.

A recently-deceased 107-year-old Spanish attributed his long-life to drinking four bottles of wine each day and never drinking water.

“Herself’s invocation of serfdom is the logical extension of ‘You Didn’t Build That’-ism, the backward philosophy under which the free citizen is obliged to justify his life and his prosperity to the state, in order to satisfy the economic self-interest, status-seeking, and power-lust of such lamentable specimens as Elizabeth Warren, a ridiculous little scold who has never done a single useful thing in her entire public life.”

The future goes where men go and does what men make it do. If men go down the drain, the future will follow. In America, God willing, the future includes rights and opportunities for women — because men say it does. On the day American men aren’t strong enough to maintain those rights for women, other men will come and take them away.”

The veterans scandal on Bernie Sanders’ watch

Absurd. Thanks, big government!

I don’t find this hard to believe, at this point. Obama and his circle of morons don’t think Hamas and MB are connected to terrorism, so why wouldn’t they order a scrub?

I hope the Left is proud of itself. Done a hell of a job dumbing down the population.

Totally agree with this assessment of the GOP debate.
