Bernie Sanders Fills SBCC West Camp...

Santa Barbara is not one of the top 10 wealthiest counties; not even close if income is the standard. See: I saw elsewhere that he referred to the Santa Barbara zip code as being among the wealthiest, but I think he must have confused Montecito's single zip with Santa Barbara's several zip codes.

The Independent had about 6,000 people here for Sanders, more in Santa Maria; and in 2007, there were about 3,000 for Obama.

Thanks for the synopsis. Bernie's speech was refreshing. From the television clips of former speeches, I didn't expect to hear as much specificity.

I was also impressed with Bernie's energy, 3 events in one day from Santa Barbara to Bakersfield plus he tossed a basketball around in the gym at Santa Maria.

Two more events today.

Bernie seems to be something like an Eisenhower Republican, with more of today's social equalities as part of his program.

I'm going to vote for him simply because he is honest.

Much of what he proposes will never come to pass, but at least he is on the right track toward battling today's corruption in politics.

@493- that attitude is exactly how change is guaranteed to NEVER HAPPEN. Do you carry that mindset into your personal life too? Do you think hundreds of thousands of women woke up one day and said "I think we deserve the right to vote" and then they just GOT IT? Did the civil rights act happen overnight? If you believe in the revolution then GET BEHIND IT! That's the only way a movement can be successful!

Great article & photos.

Bernie's biggest mistake was his initial coming out & labeling himself a socialist
.

His ideas are sound & Wall Street & the the top 1% of the wealthy hate him as they wish to keep avoiding taxes & getting the free rides that come with the stature. Ask Donald!

@493 Hard to believe you read the article. Right below the photo of Bernie he explains how to pay for the two biggest programs:

"In the case of free tuition: A small tax on Wall Street speculation would be more than enough. And, for Social Security, he would raise the cap that currently has a billionaire paying the same amount as a middle class family."

Many of the other programs are investments that pay long term returns and save money. For example, it is a fact that it is far cheaper to fund youth job programs than to put people in jail. It just takes a few years to reap the rewards.

Excellent summation, Robert.

If anyone has questions about how the programs will be paid for, the answers are just a google away:

And NO, the tax rate will never be 70% for the middle class or the top 1%.

Thank you for a well written article that spells out Bernie's agenda and how he will pay for it. If he's not nominated I'll vote for the Green Party's Jill Stein as a protest against our capitalist oligarchy!

Thanks so much for this great synopsis. Much appreciated. So much of this sounds great. More equality, more opportunity, more benefits. I never EVER hear him talk about how this will all be paid for, though. If it will mean a tax rate of 70% plus such as in some of the socialized Nordic countries, I'd just like to know. I personally am open to almost anything to reverse the consequences of Reaganomics--because let's face it, this imbalance of wealth started in the early 80's with the rich getting richer via trickle down economics. Very little trickled down.
Regardless of how good a man Bernie may be, or how idealistic, I just don't see how a 74 year old guy is going to lead a revolution that will take a generation, not one presidential term.

Perhaps a study should be done of the need for a cost/benefit analysis to ascertain if research is worth conducting.

And don't get me started on those liberal arts. ;-)

Very interesting research. Thanks for the article EdHat!

418 - I'm curious how a "cost/benefit" analysis would be done on this particular research? A link to what you read would be appreciated.

This is really fascinating to know the ways that indigenous people living away from modern society have developed certain immunities in their own environment but could be susceptible to things that we might inadvertantly expose them to. I hope that this strengthens the argument for protecting these people and leaving them the space to go on living as they have for centuries. I would hate to see these "originals" wiped out the way others have been in the past. We can still learn a lot about our planet and its' beginnings from these ancient societies. .... Thank you for sharing this work :)

Of course, there are interesting facts here. Some of it is: "duh".
How much has been spent on this study?
I know it is easy to take cheap shots on the efforts of others, but I did read somewhere that much of research is done without cost/ benefit analyses. Early studies yield more worth than later studies, generally.
Primitive peoples have robust immune systems. Who would have thought? The part about the subclasses of immune cells is worthy. What about allergies?

@633: It's also just as possible that people who like Bernie and don't like Hillary just don't like Hillary and really like Bernie. Not everything is a conspiracy theory.

(According to recent polling, greater than 70% of Sanders supporters will vote for Hillary in the general election anyway, so the point is moot.)

@621 – it’s as though many of these Bernie supporters are in it to pull votes away from Hillary Clinton and then they will turn and vote for Donald Trump.

Could the pro-Bernie anti-Hillary supporters actually be Donald Trump win-at-all-cost supporters?

Makes ya wonder, well no, it’s actually happening a lot.

I’m voting for Hillary Clinton.

An uncle took me trekking in the high Sierras when I was
a teenager (father deceased). I remember the mirror
smooth reflections on the surface, the icy cold water for
bathing, and the pink flesh of the foot-long (plus) native
trout. A different lake at the end of every day, not a soul
around, gazillions of stars. Thanks for jogging my memory!
