Bernie Sanders: Life Is Not Fair (So Get Over It)

When I was a kid I always was told life isn't fair.

Bernie Sanders: Life Is Not Fair (So Get Over It)
mother jones

When I was a kid I always was told life isn't fair. When I was a kid I understood that if I went over to a friends house and I didn't like what was for dinner it would be nothing but disrespect to yell and scream in hopes to get my own way. I understood that if a richer classmate got a better baseball bat, hit the game-winning home run with, and my team lost, there was nothing I could do but better myself, and my team.

Based on what has happened in the last few weeks and through the election Senator Sanders weren't taught these valuable lessons.

Even if the nomination process, ( not the election of the president) isn't fair there is nothing that can or should be done but for the supporters, and Senator Sanders to better themselves.

Senator Sanders has done nothing to better himself as a possible nominee in the past, as he has an independent his entire life. Senator Sanders didn't encourage his supporters or possible supporters to register as democrats as soon as he started running in order for them to vote in the nomination process no matter what state they life in.

Senator Bernie Sanders has never sat down with the DNC to set the platform for the party and therefore has no room to complain about the values they stand for. Sanders never offered a menu item for dinner, but has no problem yelling and screaming when he got to the Table and they served chicken, and he wanted steak.

And when it comes to the money raised. He is facing the rich kid with the nicest bat, bought by his parents while he has the cheap one that he bought by saving his birthday money. He may have the less money but instead of working on his skills, and becoming better he rather yell, and cry because he struck out when there were 2 outs in the bottom of the ninth when the rich kid hit a home run.

with all analogies aside what Bernie Sanders is doing is very dangerous for people who support the Democratic Party. Bernie Sanders is using rhetoric that causes more tension than needed. In a year where very important senate races on the line the party intentions was to have a presidential race that would be without tensions, in order to help guide, and unify the party in all 50 states in order to win back the senate.

Doing this is the most effective way to in order to get domestic policies passed. And let's not forget the hateful rhetoric he uses towards Hillary Clinton the presumptive nominee for the party she and her husband has built will make Sanders, and independent fans from voting for her. A once unlikely scenario where Donald J. Trump wins the presidency becomes more of a reality.

So this next time Bernie Sanders starts complaining, about the "rigged system" he should remember lives not fair.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
