Killers of hope, killers of freedom, killers of human rights, killers of dreams of the underprivileged, the under paid, the underfed, under-educated, the unhealthy and potential unhealthy, without a decent place to stay; they come in nice suits, they ride in expensive automobiles, they buy costly dinners, with wry, disingenuous smiles on their faces, they spend thousands for ads on TV and radio and they jerrymander voting districts and discourage the citizens to vote. They block meaningful legislation, judicial appointments, immigration reform, food for the needy. They tell the people who put them in the position to screw them, to forget about their health care, forget about a fair paying jobs, forget about retiring before you die; you people in jeans, in your housecoats, with homes underwater, do not dare dream of a better, easier life for you or your children, for, we are the murderers of your promise, we boast about it, we wallow in it, we cannot wait for another chance to jerk you; you deserve the worst we can give you because you were stupid enough to listen to limbargggrer, beck, oreilly, ko(ok)ch bros., cru(d)z, paul(try), (ap)palin(g), bach(k)man bo(eh)ner and a cadre of political miscreants, who have no regard for people’s rights and justice.
Thanksgiving, for me, is thanking the Creator for allowing me to have a loving mother, family and friends, to get a good education, to have the fortitude to obtain a decent education and live long enough to see the bad people get their due and good people win out. Thank you for Abraham Lincoln, FDR, Truman, Lyndon Johnson, MLK, Jr, Malcolm X, (and Malcolm Dunn) Charlie Rangle, Adam C. Powell, for Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, James Clyburn, Steny Hoyer, Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, Chris Mathews and yes, Rev Al too, and a whole host of good righteous people…….Thank you Lord, thank you….
See you on the weekend…..
