Alabama was a stronghold for democrats from 1868 up to, during, and after the time of Rosa Parks. Ain't that something?
The law that Rosa Parks broke, was a law made by and enforced by the democrats of Alabama. Ain't that something?

It was Bull Connor, a member of the Democrat National Committee, who turned the hoses on the marchers in Birmingham, and it was the Republicans who made up the majority that passed the 1964 Civil Rights Act, over the filibuster of such Democrat paragons as William Fulbright and Al Gore Sr.- and Grand Kleagle Byrd.

C'mon Al!
Didn't you think about this when you invented the Internet?

Honestly. One must wonder what problems are lurking in your carbon credit scheme.
Will we find out in 40 years that the U.S. owns all the credits while China owns all the businesses?

Corporations are NOT people. The economic imperialists of Wall St. are the hackers of our democracy. Greedy Oligarchs are addicted to power and vast wealth at the expense of We the People and the planet.They are erasing our human rights and enforcing their corporatist (fascist) control. Do you have to pee at work? Background check? RTW?? No worker health and safety? Stagnant wages?? The GOP are the handmaidens of their corporate masters. Rise Up, America!! We have the numbers.
