Al Sharpton Rips Historical US Policy Towards Nelson Mandela

Commented Dec 9, 2013 at 14:20:20 in Media

“The mainstream media is hiding what Nelson Mandela actually said about America and its foreign policy and are sugar coating things as Rev. Sharpten says but what else is new. We do this all the time.”

OldCowboy on Dec 9, 2013 at 15:57:29

“I don't know what you've been reading/watching, but there has been plenty in the media about what Mandela said about America. He castigated Bush/Cheney for the Iraq war and by no means viewed America as a beacon to the world.”

“The sad fact is that the political class and their friends on the beltway media are completely ignoring this terrible reality and talking about the stock market bubble as if it was connected to the real economy.”

“The political aristocracy has absolutely no problems increasing the personal wealth in even the worst of times...why is that?”

UncleDaKine on Dec 6, 2013 at 16:54:30

“I so agree 'Countess'...A "healthy" stock market always comes at the expense of squeezing the 'labor force' in order to increase the 'share-holders' dividends. To add insult to injury, those 'capital gains' are taxed at a lower rate than the wages of the under-paid employee... Sad state of affairs for those (of us) that advocate on behalf of Humanity.”

“They are all owned by the same hand full of people!
Most of them have been practicing their whole lives for the chance to make money from lying. The GOP has been urging their members to lie for my lifetime at least. They have taught them how to lie and believe they are telling the truth!”

“The democratic party that is loyal to Bill and Hillary Clinton is a pale imitation of the republican party and offers no real alternative to them. As long as these people dominate the democratic party the all of the worst trends in society will continue.

“It has always been this way. The idea of freedom was always a facade in this country. The facade kept the uninformed from griping and yelling. Now you are finding out. Nothing, absolutely nothing new. All of this was found out simply because of the need to dig up dirt on the current President. These actions have always been occurring. It is the fiber of which this country is held together. Now what to do? Watch them all slug it out until they can get it behind closed doors again, out of the eyes of the public. Don't fool yourselves.”
