Quote Of The Day, August 13, 2014

“Since President Lyndon Johnson, there has been no significant urban, suburban, small town or rural policy to rebuild America. Thus we should not be surprised that urban and rural communities, and all points in between, have significantly deteriorated during the past 46 years of neglect. Republicans are the party of ‘no’ and Democrats are the party of ‘don’t know’ because it hasn’t fought for bold ideas, policies or plans to turn us in a new direction. Policies of community development are being replaced with policies of community containment. The absence of a domestic Marshall Plan is being replaced with martial law.”

Jesse Jackson, explaining what happened in Ferguson, Missouri. Not enough wealth redistribution is why that happened, dontchaknow.
