Sounds like a good movie, can't wait to see it!

Rest in Peace, Mr. Rockefeller, but We the living should read this article and learn how the rich and powerful families of the world use politicians, the news media, "charitable" foundations and corporations to keep and expand their power and influence.

I lived and taught in Beijing for five years, and at least China HAS public toilets! There are only TWO freestanding public toilets in the District of Columbia for millions of tourists and thousands of homeless people, and they both close at sunset. There's plenty of delicious free food for homeless and low-income folks in our nation's capital city, but how about AFTER dinner? You rich folks and high government officials and pampered news media types have access to clean, comfortable restroom facilities, like those in the Longworth House Office Building and Dirksen Senate Office Building, but how about us po' folks? Congress, YOU own and control the District of Columbia, how about a little consideration for the people who live on your plantation? And, while you are at it, how about giving residents of Washington DC the right to vote? There are NO US Senators and only a token, non-voting "delegate" to the US House in the District of Columbia.

All citizens of the USA should be treated equally under the law, including taxpayer-funded benefits. Why does a billionaire get free Medicare while a working-class stiff gets inferior health coverage--if any coverage at all--at unaffordable prices? The generous health plans of corporate America, union healthcare funds, Blue-Cross/Blue Shield, Medicaid, Medicare and various employer and government-paid health insurance subsidized the health care industry over the past 45 years, allowing absurd increases in doctors' fees, hospital bills, drugs prices, and costs of medical equipment and supplies. When people think their coverage is "free," and they don't have to sacrifice anything, not even a small co-pay, some folks abuse the health care system by taking an ambulance to the ER (which charges premium prices) every time they get a hangnail. The late Senator Edward M. Kennedy of Massachusetts was right in spirit when he fought long and hard for universal health coverage for all Americans. We are the only industrialized, "modern" nation that fails to provide universal health care for ALL our citizens. People should pay something for their health care, and have some co-pays so they won't take advantage of "free" benefits. But no one should be denied good, basic health care, especially for life and death health problems. Even Cuba, with a much lower standard of living than the USA, provides health care for all its citizens.

Now YOU can meet President Trump and Russia's Count Vlad IN PERSON, along with our lovely former and new First Ladies and ALL our former Presidents, instead of watching on TV or on the internet in yo' mama's basement! NOW, with our limited-time offer, YOU can rub elbows with "the beautiful people," including Hollywood, TV and sports stars, musicians, Wall Street tycoons, and most of our Presidents, members of Congress and world leaders. Join the Illuminati Club and hobnob with the rich, famous and powerful. Now YOU can have personal access to the Washington DC decision-makers just like the lobbyists on "K" Street! Half-price on drinks during Happy Hour! Perhaps we can share a fine El Presidente' Cigar, or a fine Elle Monica Cigar, at the club? I'm so glad to see our new President wearing a nice tuxedo. I have nothing against Navy blue suits with matching red or blue ties, but the Republican debates looked like a TV commercial for the half-off sale on Navy blue suits at Men's Wearhouse! And to all our lovely First Ladies, how about some sexy red or black lingerie for us lonely guys in the TV audience? If Hillary had won the election, would Bill have worn a gown to the inaugural balls? And would Hillary have worn a Navy blue suit with matching red or blue tie?

The serial murders of President John F. Kennedy, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Senator Robert F. Kennedy within a 5-year period indicate a pattern of political assassinations of three leaders who went against the establishment.

It seems that Sirhan Sirhan may have been under hypnotic suggestion, either self-induced or done by a professional, at the time he shot Senator Robert. F. Kennedy. There is also speculation that a second gun was fired while Sirhan was shooting, and that shots from this second gun at close range were the fatal shots.

Some right-wing "cold warriors" tried to blame Fidel Castro and/or the USSR for the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, but both Castro and Nikita Kruschev were apparently genuinely surprised and saddened by the murder of President Kennedy, who was making peace overtures behind the scenes before his death.
