he has a nice short article out today on Frederick Douglass and his July 5th speech.

Is emblematic of what is going on globally. Horrible little dictators are amassing all the surveillance, military power, the MSM and the counting of votes.

i hope i was wrong that Bernie was our last chance and im sorry that i cannot fight it for another lifetime. this time, the streets may be all that’s left.

Wonder what goods the police union boss has on Cuomo. Probably something really salacious.

Soap box time, As we celebrate the nations 244th birthday i wonder where were headed. The people of the colonies wanted freedom from Great Britain due to taxation, religious persecution, and the Monarchy and other reasons. Fast Forward to today 244 years later. We’ve become two Americas, The 1% control the wealth and a vast majority of our politicians. The people of 244 years ago complained of to much taxation, now the rich pay no taxes leaving the second part of America footing the bill. The General Welfare of the preamble is working great for the 1% for the rest of us not so much. I see more and more people falling out of the middle class. Their was a day when America was in the top 5 or 10 in all standards of living and most other categories. Now were hard pressed to be in the top 25. Well we are no 1 in greed as America has that going for it :(. Were at a crossroads as our problems have been laid bare for all the world to see this year, Were far from being united. As long as were divided by politicians and the 1% game of divide and conquer were going no where fast. Were so divided right now as we cant even come together for fight a virus which is killing us at an alarming rate. Canada is the model that we needed to follow as their Govt actually put politics aside came together for the most part and have the virus under control -America not so much. The next Generation is going to inherit so many problems its not funny any more and its going to take so tough choices that are going to be a lot harder to accept than wearing a mask and whine about it. The American people have a choice to make; I hear to many people argue about if were a democracy or a constitutional republic. The truth of the matter is the US resembles a corporate fascist state more than any democratic from of Govt. right now. People don’t want to believe it or are ignorant to the fact. A prime example in my town is a person has in his yard a Trump/Pence sign along with hand made signs of AR 15 silhouette -2nd amend rights, Pictures of Hitler saying stop socialism in America and to boot a sign saying that i have cameras watching you, He had 3 that i could see. Crazy indeed…Politicians are ebbing away at the right to vote and are controlling the counts of elections. I recently saw a tweet about a recent election result that Byedone won handily got most the delegates Bernie got 65k votes no delegates and a unchosen category had 58 k votes and got 2 delegates!!!! How does that work??? By controling the right to vote is the final straw to consolidate power for good. Anyway i was going propose what kind of America will we have in a hundred years? I think the next 10 to 20 are absolutely going to be crucial with all the problems we are facing.

This is a grim comment to an excellent rant: I’m glad I don’t have kids.
