teohn The U.S. Census Report finds that 50 million Americans are poor. Fifty million voters is a powerful block if they ever organized in an effort to pursue their common economic goals. So, it’s crucial that those in the wealthiest One Percent keep the poor fractured by distracting them with emotional issues like immigration, abortion and gun control so they never stop to wonder how they got so screwed over for so long.

One way to keep these 50 million fractured is through disinformation. PunditFact’s recent scorecard on network news concluded that at Fox and Fox News Channel, 60 percent of claims are false. At NBC and MSNBC, 46 percent of claims were deemed false. That’s the “news,” folks! During the Ferguson riots, Fox News ran a black and white photo of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., with the bold caption: “Forgetting MLK’s Message/Protestors in Missouri Turn to Violence.” Did they run such a caption when either Presidents Bush invaded Iraq: “Forgetting Jesus Christ’s Message/U.S. Forgets to Turn Cheek and Kills Thousands”?

teohn What is happening in Ferguson, Missouri isn’t about a police department. It isn’t about a racist, incompetent (former) police chief. Unarmed 18-year-old Michael Brown was not murdered by Ferguson PD officer Darren Wilson, because Wilson is a bad a person (though he is.) Ferguson is not an isolated town or an isolated incident. Black people are being murdered all over the US. Everyone’s rights are being violated all over the US.

Ferguson is a microcosm of the system of institutional nationwide oppression that has been bought by corporate America. The militarization of the police is part of that oppression. Racism is part of that oppression. The Koch brothers who own Koch Industries the second wealthiest privately owned company in the US want you to shut up and sit down and let them steal from this country.

Beating you is part of preparing you to be OK with being exploited.

If all you ask for is to not be beaten imagine the power the wealthy can have? If all you want is the police to be nice to you, you’re a fool.

I will never be part of any organization that’s focus is solely the cops, because the cops aren’t the root of the problem. Who the cops work for are the problem.

The wealthy like the Koch brothers use their money to rewrite laws, buy elections and push pro-business policies. The Koch brothers have poured over 196 million in to dozen of free market organizations like ALEC.

aldobc4 Breaking in the new Kindle by revisiting Hemingway's The Old Man and The Sea.

Just when you think your lack of luck might keep you from your goals or desires, know that there is always a chance for a turnaround in your fortunes. Luck comes in many forms. Or better yet, make your own luck.

sabrinamcfield This book has been very insightful until now...this expert on page 253 just gave me revelation on years of never being able to fully understand why I faced soooo much adversity with my peers from highschool to adulthood. Advice from others would say "it's because you are pretty" bur I can't confidently say back then I thought I was or "because your mother worked in the district" but although my mom did a marvelous job our emotional communication back then was little to none... I FINALLY UNDERSTAND! It was none of the above. It is simply because when you grow you become a threat and anyone that knows me knows I am about #progression at a consistent and evidentially obvious speed. #tdjakes #instinct #readingisFUNdamental 9h
