    What an important, revealing, and must watch documentary on our horrifically biased justice system.

    Thank you, for the visit, Pope Frankie.
    …………………..

    God bless America,’ Pope Francis says as his East Coast tour ends
    PHILADELPHIA — Pope Francis completed his pilgrimage to the United States with a Sunday Mass on Philadelphia’s iconic Benjamin Franklin Parkway, sounding a clarion call for love and unity hours after telling sex abuse victims that God cried for them.

    A huge crowd of the faithful and the curious came for the Mass from all over the country and as far away as Vietnam, Angola, Burkina Faso and the pope’s native Argentina. The service was conducted at an altar in front of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Worshipers took communion and knelt on the asphalt, some weeping, with their eyes closed and their hands on their hearts.

    In his homily, the pope who has become beloved for his common touch, said the power of God could be found in “little miracles” of domestic life.

    “Like the warm supper we look forward to at night, the early lunch awaiting someone who gets up early to go to work,” he said.

    Closing the Mass, he thanked people for their love. “I ask you to pray for me — don’t forget,” he said, eliciting shouts of “Viva papa!”

    The pope also made a farewell speech at the airport, where well-wishers included Vice President Joe Biden.

    “This land has been blessed with tremendous gifts and opportunities,” Francis said. The love of Jesus is shown in serving “the poor, the sick, the homeless and the immigrant, your defense of life at every stage, and your concern for family life,” he said.

    “God bless America.”

    Earlier in the day, Francis held a private, unscheduled meeting with five victims of sexual abuse — three women and two men — at St. Charles Borromeo Seminary. Speaking with them one by one, he listened to their experiences and prayed with them, the Vatican press office said.

    Trump, Carson neck and neck as summer turns to fall
    09/28/15 08:00 AM
    By Steve Benen
    Donald Trump’s dominant position in the race for the Republican presidential nomination isn’t quite as imposing as it was a few weeks ago. The New York developer is still leading the GOP pack, but a FiveThirtyEight analysis last week noted the degree to which Trump’s support has slipped.

    WEEKENDS WITH ALEX WITT, 9/27/15, 12:15 PM ET
    New poll shows Carson one point behind Trump

    There’s a difference, though, between slipping and losing. Consider the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.

    1. Donald Trump: 21% (up two points from July)
    2. Ben Carson: 20% (up 10 points)
    3. Carly Fiorina: 11% (up 11 points)
    3. Marco Rubio: 11% (up six points)
    5. Jeb Bush: 7% (down seven points)
    6. John Kasich: 6% (up three points)
    7. Ted Cruz: 5% (down four points)
    8. Rand Paul: 3% (down three points)
    8. Chris Christie: 3% (unchanged)
    10. Mike Huckabee: 2% (down four points)

    The kid who sung for the Pope was on CNN News Day and he was talking about what it was like for him to sing for the Pope, and how it came about. This is the kid who whisper in the actor Mark Walberg’s ear that he like his movie Ted. Anyway the kid said now he want to sing for the President, he said doing that would be a close second to singing for the Pope. So now I am expecting President Obama to issue this kid an invitation to sing at the White House. Okay get to working Obama supporters.

    Sen. Warren pretty much hit this speech outta the park…..
    Senator Warren’s Remarks at the Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the United States Senate

    http://www.warren.senate.gov/?p=press_release&id=967

    Violence, voting, economic justice.

    We have made important strides forward. But we are not done yet. And now, it is our time.

    I speak today with the full knowledge that I have not personally experienced and can never truly understand the fear, the oppression, and the pain that confronts African Americans every day. But none of us can ignore what is happening in this country. Not when our black friends, family, neighbors literally fear dying in the streets.

    Listen to the brave, powerful voices of today’s new generation of civil rights leaders. Incredible voices. Listen to them say: “If I die in police custody, know that I did not commit suicide.” Watch them march through the streets, “hands up don’t shoot” – not to incite a riot, but to fight for their lives. To fight for their lives.

    This is the reality all of us must confront, as uncomfortable and ugly as that reality may be. It comes to us to once again affirm that black lives matter, that black citizens matter, that black families matter.

    Once again, the task begins with safeguarding our communities from violence. We have made progress, but it is a tragedy when any American cannot trust those who have sworn to protect and serve. This pervasive and persistent distrust isn’t based on myths. It is grounded in the reality of unjustified violence.

      It’s time to call out the recent flurry of new state law restrictions for what they are: an all-out campaign by Republicans to take away the right to vote from poor and black and Latino American citizens who probably won’t vote for them. The push to restrict voting is nothing more than a naked grab to win elections that they can’t win if every citizen votes.

      BAM!
