Just as a side note. Do you know that ONLY Bernie Sanders, of all USA leadership, spoke out to Margaret Thatcher on the treatment of the Irish prisoners. To end the “humiliation and degrading treatment” of Irish prisoners on hunger strike in Northern Ireland.
Bernie Sanders Wrote To Margaret Thatcher On Treatment of IRA Prisoners

Thanks for that link about Bernie Sanders writing to iron-clad bitch, Margaret Thatcher, Dandelion

Have shared on social media.

Americans need to take note that the other iron-clad bitch, her "ambitions" are about to be realized or not, depending on how you vote.

Nice words but why:

Abortion & Irish Law

and:Homophobic and transphobic bullying is still a problem in Irish schools.

True Darren, we could obtain a man of deep compassion for the people and the environment with Bernie or we can get a cold hearted self absorbed woman that will push us into more wars The Clinton Speech That Shows Only Bernie Sanders is Fit For President

If he doesn't make it, this video will be all the more important. Because it will only be the "people" who can stand up to the insanity.

Good question Arild....they are making strides, equality in marriage, but the religion plays a major part there it will be a hard fight but the people need to allow choice to all women. No more should die without choice.

Have to keep on sharing this stuff around, so it gets the attention of the masses, and then, more importantly, gets under their skin.
