why do folks say that forgiving student loan debt isn't a good practice? what do folks think wall street bailouts are?

When I speak about slavery I often get a question from the audience that is some version of, “There had to be one good slaveowner in the bunch? Right?” And I always answer, “No. Not a one of them.” Thank you, for writing this.

One of the reasons Congress is interested in records from 's accountants: They produced statements for him to show lenders, which contained exaggerated, dubious and outright wrong information about how much he was worth.

Not only that, working class whites *who actually cited class-based issues as their reason for voting* voted for Hillary. Voters who backed Trump cited immigration and terrorism as their top concerns. Not jobs or the economy.

I’m calling for universal free college and the cancellation of student loan debt for more than 95% of Americans. This is the kind of big, structural change we need to make sure our kids have opportunity in this country.

Elizabeth Warren: I have solutions to problems. Random guy who decides to run for president this week: I’m a guy, and that’s better, right?

There’s a certain type of “pragmatic” “Democrat” who I swear would try to return a won election to the store if it was won without their beloved demographic, bigoted white people.

. : Please rewrite below. Too much history gets erased w/ current wording. Is it "unclaimed" or "stolen" land? Which "Americans" are racing to claim the land? (& who would be killed for trying?) Is the land really new? Truth can be told in tweets.

2004, football star and soldier Pat Tillman killed in Afghanistan. US gov't used his death in pro-war propaganda. Family learned truth and bravely speak out. (Koch funded B of R Inst. still produces lessons that repeat the lie.) Learn more ⬇️

The piece is on the kind of lesson plans being taught and learning exercises. Teachers typically show more care and consideration for students' well-being when they teach 9/11, Pearl Harbor, the Holocaust than they do w/slavery and the Jim Crow era.
