I have a dream…that one day, Liberals and Conservatives will walk hand in hand and a man will not be judged by his political leanings, but by his ability to not engage in knee-jerk voting for any politician who seems to be on his side on some issue or issues without making a proper effort to do research on the issues and how the candidates stand on the issues, hear both sides of the issue, try to be as objective as possible, and not listen to Sarah Palin.

I have a dream today…that the dark cloud of ignorance the corporate media has cast over America and the world with their obfuscations of the truth will be blown away by Bernie's shouting, and that more and more people will start to realize that a lot of the things they thought were true are just lies or distortions of truth cooked up by the criminal classes who have infiltrated every business and every government department in the United States.

I have a dream today…that every election day will be a holiday, that there will be an end to Gerrymandering and voter suppression, that politicians will not be allowed to go on national television and tell lies without being challenged by anyone, that the news networks will all tell you the news objectively and not omit news they think you shouldn't hear or only put on news they think you should hear.

I have a dream…that electile dysfunction will cease to exist, and people will vote for the candidate that talks the most sense, not just the ones that get the voters all hot and excited, only to be disappointed at the crucial time.

I have a dream…that one day, corporate criminals will be led away in handcuffs to prison instead of never fearing punishment for their crimes. I dream of a day when human ingenuity will be used not to mindlessly make profit, but for the betterment and preservation of what we have left.

I have a dream…that one day, the Supreme Court's Citizens United ruling will be revoked, as well as the Patriot Act, the War on Drugs, mass incarceration as well as many of the racist policies and laws that are creating chaos and needless destructions of peoples' lives and futures, and that the evil people who perpetrate the racist American judicial system take the place of all the innocents they have wrongfully incarcerated.

I have a dream…that Bernie Sanders will become our next President, and many millions of people who have never heard what he's shouting out from the bully pulpit at the White House will hear it for the first time, and they will realize how badly they've been lied to, repent of their wicked Neoconservatism and Neoliberalism and become Progressives.

I have a dream…that one day, hopefully, Sarah Palin and Donald Trump will shut up and return to Hell, from whence they came.

I have a dream...that one day, the prison system will be used to punish criminals and not house drug addicts, and that the drug addicts will be cured of their addictions and become productive members of society instead of becoming unemployable destitutes with criminal records.

Trump - Dumb Luck or A Master Manipulator?

Thom plus logo Either it's an act of a master manipulator, or he has the best luck there is. Donald Trump wanted the Fed to lower interest rates, knowing that that would provide a solid and multi-year boost to the economy. But when Trump came into office, rates were already low and the Fed was not inclined to help.
