One major fallacy of America at many levels is that those elected have chosen to govern the People rather than represent them, and that there is a chasm in approaches. The corporate capture of government has wreaked all sorts of havoc in the fabric of American society, environment, and national security. The People cannot vote and then expect Hope and Change as they did with Obama. The People must Be The Change. Get the corporations on the run and keep them there. Run the politicians with fealty to them out of office forever. There is no other way. The likes of Bernie and the Squad have a lot of good instincts, as do a few others. We should listen and learn these instincts and then AMPLIFY them.
With Obama’s “hope and change” confirming that “hope” plus two bucks bought a cup of coffee (three bucks by the time Trump ascended the throne) and “change” being what you drop in the barista’s tip jar, mantras need to be banned post haste.

“He who dies with the most money,” motto is still held by those who are a portrait of Dorian Grey.
The filthy rich stay young longer - but must view a degrading Dorian Grey portrait.
Wherever President Pigface ends up he will rot.
That was a wonderful new rendition of America the Beautiful. I think that it needs to be fully written in tribute to truth and of course, FREE SPEECH!
MORE of the song, please. Mr Koehler, and thank you, thank you, thank you as these are the words the nation needs to WAKE UP! : ) When you can make them laugh—that’s when THINKING begins. Isn’t that the wonderful skill of George Carlin too? : )
