And then there’s this OK Go production. Barely passed 10 million views, yet kinda neat if you like dogs. (What? Someone doesn’t like dogs, Jerry? Who doesn’t like dogs?)
Jim Burt: “I visited Hyde Park today and was struck by how timely some of the things FDR said remain today.”
Nobody will ever deprive the American people of the right to vote except the American people themselves and the only way they could do this is by not voting.
☞ Progressive as he was, Roosevelt seemed here to forget that black Americans. Even after the Voting Rights Act was passed in 1965, efforts have routinely been made to limit its effectiveness.
The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little.
We have always known that heedless self interest was bad morals, we now know that it is bad economics.
We had to struggle with the old enemies of peace—business and financial monopoly, speculation, reckless banking, class antagonism, sectionalism, war profiteering. They had begun to consider the Government of the United States as a mere appendage to their own affairs. We know now that Government by organized money is just as dangerous as Government by organized mob. Never before in all our history have these forces been so united against one candidate as they stand today. They are unanimous in their hate for me—and I welcome their hatred.
