I salute and thank Senator Bernie Sanders for his wonderful and informative filibuster he conducted on Friday, December 10, 2010 on the Senate floor. The crux of his nearly nine hour filibuster is found in his earlier Senate speech of November 30, 2010, seen here, aptly titled This Economy's Winners and Losers. It discusses economic facts and legislative agenda being pushed. (For example, re the so-called death tax that certain Republicans want to eliminate: "If the estate tax is eliminated, all of the benefits will go to the top 3/10 of 1%. " So many are duped into thinking it affects THEIR tiny estates. If eliminated our deficit would be seriously impacted and we know whose programs would be cut.) Basically, the government must create a more fair playing field. All of us should be doing well. The greed and the extremes must be eliminated, by law and not by violence.
Please listen to Bernie and call or write him your thanks. I think I shall even send a follow-up snail mail. Sadly, the corporate media today has buried this story. WE must not only thank Bernie but also reverberate his message far and wide.
