Bernie Sanders' Fantastic Speech Yesterday

Click on pic for larger image

Yesterday, the only true “maverick” in the U.S. Senate, self proclaimed socialist Bernie Sanders, (I Vermont) took the Senate floor for an amazing eight hour filibuster. This was more like the old fashioned filibusters, as portrayed in “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington.“
Below is a link to Senator Sanders’ web site where you can find a video and a transcript of the speech.

Here follows the opening paragraphs of his speech:

Mr. SANDERS. Mr. President, there is a war going on in this country, and I am not referring to the wars in Iraq or Afghanistan. I am talking about a war being waged by some of the wealthiest and most powerful people in this country against the working families of the United States of America, against the disappearing and shrinking middle class of our country.
The reality is, many of the Nation's billionaires are on the warpath. They want more, more, more. Their greed has no end, and apparently there is very little concern for our country or for the people of this country if it gets in the way of the accumulation of more and more wealth and more and more power.
Mr. President, in the year 2007, the top 1 percent of all income earners in the United States made 23 1/2 percent of all income. The top 1 percent earned 23 1/2 percent of all income--more than the entire bottom 50 percent. That is apparently not enough. The percentage of income going to the top 1 percent has nearly tripled since the 1970s. In the mid-1970s, the top 1 percent earned about 8 percent of all income. In the 1980s, that figure jumped to 14 percent. In the late 1990s, that 1 percent earned about 19 percent. And today, as the middle class collapses, the top 1 percent earns 23 1/2 percent of all income--more than the bottom 50 percent. Today, if you can believe it, the top one-tenth of 1 percent earns about 12 cents of every dollar earned in America.

Juan Williams Proves He's Clueless About The Plight Of The Unemployed!

Juan Williams told Fox News' Megyn Kelly that extended
unemployment benefits are harmful to peoples' work ethic and basic values.
The two were speaking about the fight over the extension of the benefits on Thursday's "America Live." Kelly told Williams that a man she knows is staying
on unemployment because his jobless benefits bring him more money than a potential job.
"To me it's crazy because the longer that person is unemployed the more difficult it is then for them to get a job," Williams said. He continued:
"Because employers, potential employers, will look and see that gee, they've been out forever, it doesn't make sense. And I think that's partly playing in to this cycle. And at some point then it becomes a matter of you lose your work ethic, your values are impacted, you know, getting up, showing up, dressing well, all that good stuff. So I don't know that that's smart."
