(April 25, 1923 — December 21, 1992)
…was an American blues guitarist and singer.
The United States Government has been run like a branch of organized crime: a special sort of American business… Funny business that ain’t so funny.
“All of us are more than fed up with mediocrity, hypocrisy, lesser-evil, trickle-down, less-than-perfect settling for spending trillions and killing millions for munitions firms and billionaires who pay no taxes and steal what we pay.
This is more than “less than perfect.” This shakedown is organized crime, committed in our names and on our dime because we let it happen and it comes from both sides of the corporate aisles.
“Obama said his rule without law gave him the right to murder at will. Trump agrees. It is critical to wake up everyday people before we lose the rest of our civil rights.”
Election year nonsense can be very painful.
We cannot continue spending trillions killing millions for billionaires in pursuit of corporate empire.
Corporate wars and profiteering have already bankrupted the nation. If we continue down this road, there will be a global recession while we are in full retreat.
We cannot continue spending trillions killing millions for billionaires in pursuit of corporate empire. Global economists agree this has already bankrupted the country and will destroy the nation between 2020 and 2030. We are teetering on the brink.
We can rebuild sustainable infrastructure and restore human resources by choosing peace over war.
Jamar Clark, 11/15/15 Minneapolis, MN:
Two Minneapolis police officers shot Clark, claiming he “interfered” with emergency responders helping an assault victim. Activists and witnesses maintain that Clark was unarmed and handcuffed when he was shot.
No officers have been charged with a crime for killing Jamar.
Dr. Jill Stein has a plan for revolutionary change. She wants to put everyday people back in charge.
“In March 2011, Clinton supported the NATO attacks on Libya to aid rebels in their attempts to overthrow Moammar Gadhafi, which … led to Libya becoming the failed state that it is today.”
“During her interview… Dr. Stein quoted Alice Walker: “The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any.”
American foreign policy under Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama, when considered by the non-partisan observer, has a sense of continuity – and escalating and expanding aggressiveness.
“Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton… have endorsed, encouraged, enabled and funded unnecessary wars and avoidable profiteering for the corporate elite.”
“…we are now fighting 27 simultaneous wars… and have been building an empire based on more than 800 offensive military outposts. We sell arms to both sides of artificial conflicts sponsored by the CIA and/or the Pentagon. This increasing and expanding empire, selling unending wars for profit, will bankrupt the nation between 2020 and 2030.”
“Establish a foreign policy based on diplomacy, international law, and human rights. End the wars and drone attacks, cut military spending by at least 50% and close the 800+ foreign military bases that are turning our republic into a bankrupt empire. “
“We have become the aggressor: exporting terror, munitions and wars in attacks on smaller and less powerful nations. “We spend trillions, killing millions, for the benefit of billionaires who pay no taxes, steal the taxes we pay and remain oblivious to concerns about our health, security and education.”
So far, PDX Police Bureau officers have been provided with a license to kill at will, even unarmed citizens, without accountability. This is the signal that various mayors and PDX City Councils have delivered over the last 20 years.
