Intense training has just begun for a Bald eagle to swoop down and perch on Hillary Clinton's shoulder as she responds to a question about what it means for her to be the first female President.

At which time, an orchestra plays, "It Had to Be You"; sung live, by Tina Turner.

Personally, I'd like to see it -- all of it; except the part about Hillary Clinton responding to that question.


Bernie does set a high bar.

Donald Trump tried this already. Google the Trump Bald Eagle video. The eagle attacked Mr. Trump twice.

He's magic! He's Santa Claus!!

Vote for Bernie and you'll have Christmas presents! Everything is free! With 94 million unemployed Americans there is a huge tax base!

Not really, magic doesn't exist. Tampoco el Tooth Fairy o el Easter Bunny (see how multicultural I am!).

When that little bird perched on the podium, it immediately brought to mind the Bob Marley song...."Three Little Birds."
"...three little birds pitch by my doorstep singing sweet songs, melodies pure and true. This is my message to you: 'Don't worry about a thing, 'Cause every little thing is going to be alright...' (with the emphasis on PURE AND TRUE)
Bob Marley - another voice of truth and unity when he wrote "GET UP STAND UP".

JW, If you're not a Hillary troll, please go here, https://berniesanders.com/issues/how-bernie-pays-for-his-proposals/ , and you'll find out how Bernie would pay for his proposals. There's no such thing as a free lunch and to think so would be silly. Bernie's the only contender to offer proposals rather than platitudes and who has a way of paying for what he wants for our nation.

I'm sure Bernie talks a good game. So does Obama and George Bush.

Talk is one thing-action is another.

After reading Bernie Sander's college essay, printed on line by VOX magazine, I've concluded that Bernie is not fully rational.

Comcast Inc. (i.e. NBC) purchase of ("investment in") VOX magazine shortly after they published his essay confirms my extrapolation.

Donald Trump owns a Bald Eagle, bound in chains.

A tender little bird honours Bernie Sanders.

The choice is yours. Please.

Make America beautiful again...

IF Trump really does keep a bald eagle chained up, he's committing a federal offense. I doubt he's really that stupid, otherwise he'd been indicted by now. The federal regulations to handle / keep / dispose of dead eagles are clear. I found a dead, juvenile but full grown, bald eagle last Summer in a valley where I walk my dogs, near Cortez, CO. I thought I'd take the carcass, undamaged, home and give the feathers to some of my Navajo friends (meanwhile I took photos of it, and it's frightening talons). Turns out -- I can't do that - give away the feathers or keep the carcass, legally. This has to go thru the appropriate agency, for subsequent eagle feather distribution to Native Americans. So, I took the eagle carcass back to the valley and left it there. By the way, almost no carnivore will eat eagles, including coyotes, a curious fact. And I see coyotes out there all the time. That is why the carcass lay there until it rotted away. And that is how I realized that these common predators avoid eagles dead and alive (this is published and known about eagles - not a secret. I read that bears and pumas also will not eat an eagle.)

I remembered a photo shoot with "Time" magazine. I thought the kitschy arrangement was original Trump style.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M41aZX5ijVM

But you are right. After some short digging on the internet: The eagle on Trumps desktop was brought with his falconer by "Time", it´s not Trump´s own eagle.

My fault.

I change to this:

Incidentally, eagles not only eat live prey, they are carrion eaters like vultures. Maybe that is why the other carnivores won't eat them.

Trump would also be in violation of an international treaty:
Migratory Bird Treaty Act - 1918,
http://www.fws.gov/birds/management/managed-species/migratory-bird-treaty-act-protected-species.php,
in which eagles are listed.

But to show how well this treaty is known or enforced by the "authorities" I saw the remains and beautiful feathers of a red-tailed hawk on the side of the road and called the state department of Natural Resources to report it. They tried to blow me off with they "don't clean up roadkill". I explained to them that this was no ordinary roadkill but a predator that is covered under the afore mentioned treaty. They took the location information and said they would look into it. Days upon days later as I drove passed the remains remained until the weather washed it away.
I would have loved to use a few of those feathers for my art but even I knew the law.

You are a good soul if a bird is unafraid of you. Reminds me of St. Francis of Assisi, and the Birdman of Alcatraz (great movie). (As far as birds go, I recommend "Flying Free", true story of a man in the Texas panhandle who rescued 2 abandoned eagle eggs from their cliff nest and hatched and raised one of them. Total tearjerker - the Golden Eagle remains a friend as long as 13 years later even after it has gone "wild" again - they can live to be 100 years old, nearby - Palo Duro Canyon - and comes to perch next to him right out of the sky - all true - were that the entire world could be so beautiful. Just an amazing story about raising a golden eagle in such a way that it could be returned to the wild).

I Was There

I was there on Good Friday
when that finch worked the crowd of eleven thousand Portlanders
gathered in the round arena to see Bernie the presidential contender.




That bird had amazing skill to attract attention,
and it seemed to me, quite a knack to change her size
as it worked the many sections of the arena
and put a sparkle in our eyes
from a tiny bird flying high
or a bird on a rail big as a gull
building and building attention of that crowd so full
to shrink out of sight again, and later to appear huge as a hen
having hundreds, laugh out loud again, and then
again
I didn't see it as a white dove, but I did not see everything.
section by section it worked around the ring
here and there a hundred folks would break out laughing.

What is this? a bird comedian?

No.

It was just the bird setting up the crowd
before alighting on stage twelve feet from where
the Presidential Candidate held his ground.

with enough pomp, to make the speaker stop.
and having everyone fill the house with sound.

What happened next is well documented.
that is what 'bird' and 'Bernie' and youtube are for.
The part I remember best is 'No more war.'

But that 20 minutes of this bird working the crowd…..
OK, Bernie was speaking too
and he spoke loud and fair.
All I can say is.

I was there.

Bernie has often said that voting day should be a holiday. There's a very easy way to accomplish this. Please sign this petition if you agree. https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/make-voting-day-coincide-veterans-day

Smilodon1:
You are totally our of your mind!!!!!!!
Voting day is to be reserved for the AMERICAN PEOPLE that are citizens of this country. I am an American vet that went to war to free this country and now you want to turn the most important day of the term "Voting Day:" into a holiday?????? What an idiot...

Bernie has a list of problems. It’s a real messy list. So how do we get out of the mess; where to from here? Let’s start small but with principle. First, take the money out of politics. Then control the borders. And thirdly bring back the jobs.
Money corrupts politics. We don’t need corruption. A nation without borders cannot long exist, er should know that; the EU for example is toast, committing suicide for cheap? labor. And jobs: without jobs there is no future; good jobs are everything, it is time to stop giving them away.
Realize that few can be trusted with money and power so citizens should make the rules themselves. Yes, responsibly, taking care not to impose on the life or property of others.
The shadow Deep State government will not relinquish power gracefully. They would rather go to war and rule the world. Let’s stop voting for people. Vote for ideas but be careful out there.

For all you ,"AMERICAN PEOPLE". if you do NOT like America and want to change it to your design, find and start your own country that YOUR laws and REQUIREMENTS will be accepted by your public. Leave the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA to the people that love this country, gave their lives and devote
d their time to this country. WE DO NOT need your input or religion to control the GREATEST NATION IN THE WORLD. We already have that. Take your Satanistic, ritual, evil religions and beliefs somewhere else. YOU are NOT welcome here.....GET OUT!!!!!!!!!!

Bernie Sanders is as much as a Satanic worshiper as hillery, bill, and obama are. Their main goal in this life is to TOTALLY DESTROY the UNITED SATES OF AMERICA. And to bring it under control of Satan himself.
If you think I am lying, pick up a Bible and read the book of Revelations. That will show you total future of this world.

Depressionborn:
I agree with you totally. This current government cannot control, run, or advise as to the future or current situations of AMERICA. We need a man in office that will take the reins and turn this country back to a country of reverence, respect and fear from our enemies. So far, the only man that is capable of this is Donald Trump. So I advise you to vote for Trump to turn this country around and make us proud again. I really loved serving under Kennedy and Regan.

Perhaps that was a trained bird.

Humans have been training birds since ancient times.

This sort of stuff works well with the Chicken Little crowd. But not with the Foxy Loxy crowd.
