And what has The One done for the rubes, saps, and hysterics who poured out for him? Expanded wars. Bombed Pakistan. Gave $12.9 trillion to the banks with no oversight. Abandoned public health care. Regimented education via a merit-pay stimulus. Gave about 1.4 million of them joblessness.

December 2 this year will mark the 150th anniversary of the hanging of John Brown. From his last speech: “Had I interfered in the manner which I admit, and which I admit has been fairly proved (for I admire the truthfulness and candor of the greater portion of the witnesses who have testified in this case), had I so interfered in behalf of the rich, the powerful, the intelligent, the so-called great, or in behalf of any of their friends, either father, mother, brother, sister, wife, or children, or any of that class, and suffered and sacrificed what I have in this interference, it would have been all right; and every man in this court would have deemed it an act worthy of reward rather than punishment.”
