Dear Bernie Sanders...This Is NOT The United States Of Kibbutz

________________________________________________________________________________________________

All of Bernie Sanders ideas are wonderful
 and all-inclusive. But they would only be 
practical if and only if 
we all lived on a commune
where everyone did 
an equal amount of 
working, sharing
and singing  
Kum-by-ya

:::
In 1969, Alexander Portnoy
encountered  "Bernie's sister"
:::
:::

She re-created for me
a discussion that had raged in her
parents’  kibbutz  when she was still
a little girl, over the fact
that some people owned
watches and others didn’t.

It was settled, after several
impassioned meetings of the
kibbutz  membership, by
deciding to rotate the watches
every three months.

If you find a  large group of Americans
who would live like this,
you have found 
a large group of people
who are brain-dead!

  1. So you're a trumpeter?

    The most blatant plutocrat, oligarch?

    Not run by the people, as a democracy
    they don't even include the people
    except to get votes.

    1. To answer your questions:
      No, Yes, and Maybe

      But had I accepted an invitation
      to a kibbutz in 1971, today
      I would be Bernie's
      campaign manager.
