“Pick one”, the gop and neoliberal dem’s did that 40 years ago. I’ll give you 3 guesses as to which one they chose, and the first two don’t count.
Capitalism has got to go. Trickle down economics has got to go. Our political system has got to go.

When I feed the poor I am called a saint. When I ask why the poor have no food, I am called a communist.

“Wherever there is great property there is great inequality. For one very rich man there must be at least five hundred poor, and the affluence of the few supposes the indigence of the many.” – Adam Smith, in The Wealth of Nations, 1776.

Vast inequality and injustice isn’t a bug in capitalism, it’s a feature.

Good quote but old school, now he would be called a radical, bleeding, heart, liberal…

Pray for the deaths of right-wing politicians.

Wow, basic needs: clean water, fresh air, healthy food without chemical or genetic tinkering. Next they will want a forest to explore or tide pools. Boy, they just want it all.

The COMMONS-----We all have a right to the Commons.

Should send Mitch a chunk of coal------but don’t worry Trump is hard at work fixing the problem???NOT! Who votes for these RICH ASSHOLES???

We must stop sending money to Maine, Kentucky, West Virginia they must be living the good life as they elect the richy rich to represent themselves???

It was so refreshing to hear Janet Yellen today talk about REAL issues. Now Democrats have to fix all the Republican fuck ups again , but they have to do it with their hands tied behind their backs. So now jimmy dore and glen greenwald authoritarian supporters are so happy nothing will get done.

Socialism or barbarism–this should be your proverbial “no-brainer”.

Love to these children and their suffering parents. Truly heart breaking. So much is heart breaking in US America and we must rise up to meet this occassion.

THAT should be our “holiday” message this year.

In need? Go to your local GOP office, and as you say, get your lump of coal and a brand new pair of boot straps.
Too many republican fuck ups to fix this time round illusion.
I was turned on to Jimmy Dore here on CD.
Never cared for his demeanor, although usually passes on good updates.

Out rich philanthropist industrialists have disappeared. Now they only donate to political causes.
