The establishment does not like Bernie.

Sanders is also threatening because he has crowds that others can't quite produce. It's conflicting for the media when the campaigns send bigger ad buys, but Sanders image can look better "for free" (I mean without the same ad dollars). So I think that protection money helps grease the eager wheels to bare the axe against Bernie.

Bernie Sanders is PUNK ROCK!

I recall there being some friction between yourself and the so called "Bernie Bros".
To me that sounded like a media message (MSM, Clinton et al.) blown out of proportion to impact strife in his base, but I also figured you're boots on the ground and had to deal face-to-face with the apparent fratboy, champagne socialists pissing in your cornflakes.

He is probably talking about the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement which would depress American tech wages under the guise of intellectual property agreements (which helps the actual people making these games zero) but the people he was talking to probably weren't morons so they had every right to tell him what a piece of shit he was to his face.

Absolutely. More like 'trying to push through the terms authored by the usurious holders/publishers while keeping offshore factory cities and our corporate lawyers in business'. The artists? Hahahaha, damn Joe that's a good one!

I've certainly have never seen supposed "IP Law" do any serious damage to the deluge of China counterfeiting. Sure, Nintendo did kill a few firms, although if we're talking Silicon Valley then almost all the tech is manufactured in China without any second option. Amazon is easily fueled by it, even the books are printed there now. You can buy chip & pcb blueprints, at hefty prices, fairly easily from Chinese services. And those were the specs that some US company sent to the manufacturer, or maybe it was exfiltrated from the internal servers. Software, and multimedia bootlegging is trivial and already a given.

No international accord is going to tell the CPC inner party or Chinese culture what to do.
