Jeebus. What can you say? If there's a part of the US population Bush won't sacrifice to further the comfort of the powerful and make the rich richer, I haven't seen it. That he's actually using the real reasons out loud shows just how much contempt he has for us and how willing he is to openly toady for them.

The out loud part gets me too. They just don't care who knows about their corporations above all agenda. I think that's b/c people still believe that companies are loyal somehow to the United States. What's good for General Motors and all that. They don't get it yet that the U.S.A. doesn't exist in any meaningful way as an entity in the minds of corporations. We're just part of a global market - currently a part that's living too high on the hog and needs to be knocked down a few pegs. Once most of the country gets that, it will probably be too late. Or maybe it will never be too late - it will be harder though to claw our way back to a living standard that we expect to have.

  • "[O]ur time, our energy, should be spent in educating, agitating, organizing our fellow citizens in the workplace, in the neighborhood, in the schools. Our objective should be to build, painstakingly, patiently but energetically, a movement that, when it reaches a certain critical mass, would shake whoever is in the White House, in Congress, into changing national policy on matters of war and social justice."


  • "True religion will not let us fall asleep in the comfort of our freedom. Love thy neighbor is not a piece of advice, it's a command. ...

    God, my friends, is with the poor and God is with us, if we are with them. This is not a burden, this is an adventure."

The Reverend Al Sharpton

  • Ray wasn't singing about what he knew, 'cause Ray had been blind since he was a child. He hadn't seen many purple mountains. He hadn't seen many fruited plains. He was singing about what he believed to be.

    Mr. President, we love America, not because of all of us have seen the beauty all the time.

    But we believed if we kept on working, if we kept on marching, if we kept on voting, if we kept on believing, we would make America beautiful for everybody.


  • ''With adequate profit, capital is very bold. A certain 10 percent will ensure its employment anywhere; 20 percent will produce eagerness, 50 percent positive audacity; 100 percent will make it ready to trample on all human laws; 300 percent, and there is not a crime which it will not scruple, nor a risk it will not run, even to the chance of its owner being hanged.''
