Open letter to Bernie Sanders

Dear Bernie, My main concern is that I leave your rallies inspired, but I left Obamas rallies inspired.


In case you haven't seen the video , you need to. The video from my understanding is of police responding to a domestic violence call. What ensues , is a white man scurrying around the front entrance of what appears to be his property as police close in. The man after what appears to be a limited attempt to leave the scene, turns to the 2 police officers, the man appears to have no visible weapons and appears to not challenge police physically and stops , stands still and raises his hands indicating surrender.


George W Bush/Cheney just continued the torture program of their predecessor Ronald Reagan , because like Ronald Reagan they knew they'd get away with it.

here's an example in real life of how a black person should handle a cop when being pulled over

Now since 's the black person recorded the conversation and obeyed the officer the officers in trouble not the black person the black person now has a potential lawsuit he could get rich. He didn't have to go jail or get beaten up or shot. The black guy walks away laughing the cop is being reprimanded.

White folks are good at “double standards”…love ‘em. They even have triple and quadruple standards.

Problem is, the very essence of a “standard” is that it is unique in its own; it is one, there cannot be two.


THIS Canadian thinks it is time to speak up for the Americans as the most generous and possibly the least-appreciated people in all the earth.

As long as sixty years ago, when I first started to read newspapers, I read of floods on the Yellow River and the Yangtse. Who rushed in with men and money to help? The Americans did.

Would a Democratic President Wield Power as Ruthlessly as Trump?

Thom plus logo Interestingly, the current divide in the Senate gives us an insight into how powerful a genuinely progressive Democratic president could be, and how much he or she could get done.
