Jim's Just Sayin, one year ago today:

The midgets of the Democratic Party are lining up to (a) seek the nomination of their party for the presidency and (b) endorse the so-called "Green New Deal."
No candidate of the Democratic Party can obtain my support without opposing their party's #bloodthirst, #warmongering, #classstrife, and #racism.
Bloodthirst? Yes. Executing a person because they refuse to move out of a home where they are not welcome is a grotesque and violent act, and that is the essence of abortion. Murdering someone because of where they temporarily reside.

1. Dear #WeThePeople of the LEFT

U have correctly identified the problem - that a 1% ELITE controls our government

But your solution of SOCIALISM is misguided

Let’s work TOGETHER to destroy this ELITE class

ONE ISSUE POLITICS - Destroy the Elite

#EndTheFed
2A. From @noamchomskyT
Requiem for the American Dream

“If u look at wealth distribution, the (income) inequality mostly comes from super-wealth -.. the top 1/10th of a %... If u check u find that over the course of these years the govt policy has been modified ...
2B. “.. AGAINST THE WILL OF THE POPULATION to provide enormous benefits to the very rich... Real incomes have stagnated for over 30 years. The MIDDLE CLASS in that sense.. is under severe attack. A significant part of the AMERICAN DREAM is class mobility... It’s all collapsed.”

[1] OK - Dont laugh -

I am now very interested in looking at Harry Sachs
[2] Harry Sachs :

* Was born in 1857
* Lived as adult in New York City
* 40 years with Goldman Sachs
* Was "born" in Baltimore (may mean "grew up"... TBD)
* And one more thing ...

See geni.com/people/Harry-S…
[3] Harry Sachs was the older brother of Samuel Sachs

This is THE "Sachs" of Goldman Sachs

"Sachs, along with his longtime friend Philip Lehman of Lehman Brothers, pioneered the issuing of stock "

Folks hate it when I remind them that our most progressive president was #LBJ, because someone told them it was #FDR.

(But it would have been great if FDR's VP #HenryWallace had succeeded him instead of #Truman.)

LBJ.
Almost a Socialist.
Unmatched to this day.
For those unfamiliar with LBJ, he gave us:
#CivilRightsAct
#VotingRightsAct
War on Poverty
Great Society
##Medicare
#Medicaid
Head Start
Immigration and Nationality Act (expanding immigration)
doubled federal spending on education
expanded wilderness preservation
gun control
LBJ also gave us:
Food Stamp Act (now SNAP)
Regional Medical Program
Higher Education Act
Public Broadcasting Act
National Endowment for the Humanities
National Endowment for the Arts

And yes, he gave us Vietnam.
But he was the most Socialist president in US history.

In Pulaski, Tennessee, a group of Confederate veterans convenes to form a secret society that they christen the “Ku Klux Klan.” The KKK rapidly grew from a secret social fraternity to a paramilitary force.....

Some historiography remembers Henry #Stimson with much more admiration, incl'g for fathering what became the #Nuremberg trial, than it does John J. #McCloy. This Evan Thomas piece is, behind its headline, a good reminder not to romanticize or oversimplify. washingtonpost.com/opinions/how-o…
Some of Stimson's greatness in #FDR's and then, briefly, #Truman's, Cabinet during & right after #WWII was his Assistant Secretary of War, McCloy's (plus others'). And some of McCloy's failings were, above him, Stimson's.
(Yes, I know. Stimson & McCloy. This should really go viral.)

06/01/2019 - 78 years ago today, the longest-serving #UnitedStates #President, #Franklin D. #Roosevelt (#FDR) addressed the 77th #Congress with his "#Four #Freedoms" speech with the intent to shift #US #foreign #policy from that of #neutrality to #interventionist.
#FDR promoted the idea that the people of the world, in all nations, shared entitlement to four freedoms: that of the freedom of speech and expression, the freedom of worship, the freedom from want and the freedom from fear.
#FDR is arguably one of the most 'successful' #US Presidents. Some would argue that on the basis of his numerous social policies such as 'the New Deal'. Others, however, would argue that his role during the second world war was more prevalent to his success & everlasting legacy.
