The rich vs. the rest of us

Richard Eskow today nearly perfectly sums up how I feel, sums up why this weekend’s protests in Chicago are so necessary if we still care at all about government of, by, and for the people. If we ever want to rule ourselves and not simply be ruled by the rich who have taken money from us. Yes, Eskow may sound radical, and he is far less radical that what the wealthy powers that be have done to our country and to the American people.Jim, my guess is may think he goes to far. I think he is right on. I’d love to be shown that I’m wrong.

About JP

We're two guys who met in college, in 1980. We've stayed in touch, and like to talk politics, current events, music and religion. JP is nore liberal than Sid, but not in every way. We figure that dialogue stimulates ideas, moderates perspective, and is in general friendly. These are things we need badly in these dangerous times. The blog name is taken from a song by Bruce Cockburn.
