Mr. (Potter) Romney

by Bernard Via

George Bailey’s speech to Mr. Potter in the movie “It’s a Wonderful Life” (Jimmy Stewart):

“Just remember this, Mr. Potter, that…this rabble you’re talking about… they do most of the working and paying and living and dying in this community. Well, is it too much to have them work and pay and live and die in a couple of decent rooms and a bath? Anyway, my father didn’t think so. People were human beings to him. But to you, a warped, frustrated old man, they’re cattle. Well in my book, my father died a much richer man than you’ll ever be!”

Ryan Lies

Last night’s speech by Paul Ryan was amazing. In the middle of his speech he pointed out a small town in his district that had a GM plant. He said Obama came to that town and promised to keep that plant open. In actuality, that plant closed under George W. Bush — so Ryan lied. If not for Obama, all GM plants would be shuttered. Ryan told a boldfaced lie and he knew it. If he has to lie, he is hiding the true agenda.

Five Supreme Court Justices opened this campaign to being bought by large corporations. Money is power — we will have to wait to see how well money works in this election to manipulate the American people and cause them to believe lies.

Looking forward to the Convention

Bristol’s committee will have four members on the floor of the Democratic National Convention in September! We are proud of our three delegates and of our representative on the Credentials Committee. We will all be with them in spirit!

If you are going to be there in spirit or in person, share a photo at!

Romney Economics

I believe that the worst indictment of what Romney and Bain did is in the response — or lack of response — to questions from workers.
