“When the rain comes, it don’t fall on one man’s house.” Bob Marley

Follow me down memory lane to 1996 when the Democratic slogan was Bridge to the 21st Century. Al Gore followed with Prosperity and Progress in 2000. We, as a country, had money in the bank, our debt was paid down and scheduled to be paid in full in a few years, we had lived through a relatively peaceful eight years and were being diligent about our national security.

Gore was intently focused on future technology and education for the new Green Society of solar and wind technologies, phasing out planet-killing coal and oil. Yes, we were going to avert the climate crisis we are now experiencing, and keep building a society that would provide prosperity for all.

But here we are today, speeding down the Highway to Hell. A stolen election here, a stolen election there and pretty soon you have a fascist government run for the benefit of corporate owners and their cronies, demanding the rest of us grovel and fight for scraps dropped on the ground.

please click on the link for the rest of the story...I get little eyeball clicks as a reward.
