      I’ve searched and it seems that only the 50th anniversary of RFK’s assassination, did I find a reference to his impact on humanity… It’s revealed in this impromptu speech in 1968, upon the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr. Will we ever be served by another person with vision as those who we lost now more than a half century ago?

      Assuming you’ve lived long enough, everyone seems to know where they were when we lost Bobby. I was 14 and very confused…

      Hell, no... I'm not giving up...

      Yes, I loved his brother but felt Bobby was truly working for us, the people…I was very hopeful about his candidacy and his assassin ended that. It was apparent to all of us who were paying attention that TPTB would kill as many as it took to make us sit down and shut up. 😕

      The DNC “big tent” excludes Nina Turner but includes John Kasich.
      God, guns, and gobbledygook...we live in an aquarium of nightmares.

      Probably not. The assassination of the Kennedys was the opening salvo in Murdakkkastan’s War against Progress. Since then, every true leader who has arisen has been silenced, disgraced, slandered, slaughtered or, in many cases, simply smeared beyond recognition by our Pravda. And due to Citizens United, all of the other “leaders” who WOULD have risen up have SOLD OUT instead.

      The Democrats are not the best that humanity or even this country is capable of. They are simply the best that our Plutocratic, oligarchic uberlords will ALLOW US!

      as long as corporations make more money dividing us than uniting us.

      And that’s thanks to decades spent making our governments owned by corporations, including Bill Clinton’s Telecommunications Act of 1996 to Citizen’s United to name a couple of major changes that made it possible.
