Funniest Thing on the Internet Today. Affuent White Teen Burning Her Elizabeth Warren Shirt for #BernieSanders

First of all as a young woman of the 70s my first reaction was "Really? Burning a T Shirt? Girl that's just not enough!" Try the bra, Sweetie, or aren't you old enough to wear one?" The tweet is here if it hasn't been deleted. It was sent out by a #BernieOrBust er account. I do not want to copy or transfer the tweet or picture without permission which I'm pretty sure I wouldn't get). I did save a copy of the pictures to prove my validity if legally challenged.

The account hosting the pictures is called "Bernie Believer" @AmazingBernie and lists a home city as Pismo Beach. Ears pick up. As a Cali lady I knew that was interesting. And in fact looking at the demographics of various areas of Pismo Beach most of them have home values of $650k to $1m dollars. There are a few slices cheaper, but the home in that picture does not look like on of those homes, not in Central Coast California with it's clean air, open space, and moderate climate.

Also most of the Pismo Beach and nearby areas have very high percentages of white residents. A couple of slices have higher minority rates and low income levels, lower property values though not low enough that being in the working class is a very fun life. So basically the Twitter user probably lives in the servant and served community and isn't a servant.

I'm also guessing the Twitter user knows the young woman in the picture, and it might even be a family member. The kitchen and deck the young woman was in and on is very likely a part of a million dollar abode. I"m wondering if there are now burn marks on that fine and finely finished deck.

What I do know is that Pismo Beach is typical of an elitist city with poor people supplying cheap help to families of the people like the young woman in the picture.

The #BernieSanders fanatic that I know similarly lives in one of the most elite cities in our area. Her and her family's attachment to #Bernie is due to his promise to pay off student loans, that they generously took out for their daughters education and of course the fun very affluent college students think is their norm.

They may live in a million dollar abode, but paying back that loan is like slavery!

Who knew?

Nope going into peoples homes and cleaning their toilets, or living in a closet size room to be always at the beck and call, that's like slavery, Chuckles!

Also mowing their lawns, painting their homes, washing their cars for way too little pay to live decently and freely, sweeping up their restaurants and washing the dishes, and busing for tips. That's basically another version of slavery, and increasingly more and more of our working people are forced into those jobs as money continues to flow to the top like it did before the Great Depression.

As I have noted before #Bernie Sanders says he's a socialist, but his biggest promises would make wealthy families wealthier. He then gives vague promises to do "socialist stuff" for the rest of us. From experience I can tell you vague promises never get fulfilled. Increasingly also #Bernie looks more like promise socialist scam artist, someone who offers the working classes a great new world, but mostly uses his/her platform to enrich him or herself as desperate people throw money at their "savior".

 If you like Bernie, you can have him, but please don't be fooled about his Socialism. The man makes 6 figures a year working that scam. He doesn't need your money, too.
