Breakfast, this morning, with an old friend. The song, that is.
And watch this all the way to the end. Please.
Fix it, brother!
Both sides of the aisle? Easy-peasy. Just hand the shepherd’s crook over to Biden and he shouts, “China” … The donkeys lined up behind him are just as obedient as elephants. No new tricks required.
Cripes! I remember the transition. Democrats relied on the Solid South…racism, Jim Crow laws and all, to stay in power for decades. Then, as a result of pressure from the growing civil rights movement, they relented. They figured they better join the nation changing in a progressive direction.
As a result, the Republican Party took over state government in all the most racist states. That’s what “Republican tradition” means in most of the South. It goes back to the success of freedom fighters at the federal level…and your friendly neighborhood bigots simply changing parties.
Bonus round…two-party history…1947.
For two decades now, our government has sent U.S. military service members to fight in an ever-expanding, global conflict.
Thousands of Americans and countless civilians have died, trillions of dollars have been wasted, and entire regions of the world have been destabilized. Instead of making us safer, this reckless conflict has militarized our society, fed xenophobia and hate here in the U.S., and created more extremism abroad. The frustrated Veterans who fought call this the “Forever War” — but together, we have the power to end it.
We need to bring our troops home. We need to stop bombing other countries. And we need to spend the trillions of dollars that we’re wasting on the Forever War here at home instead, making investments that benefit working Americans like COVID relief, green jobs, healthcare, and more.
There’s more to this plea for sanity…and a petition over here.
