[The text, next to an image of the Statue of Liberty, reads: 
On this 4th of July, a day when there is so much talk of
“patriotism,” here are some words written by my uncle, Phil Ochs in
1963:

“Here is a land full of power and glory;
Beauty that words cannot recall;

Oh, her power shall rest on the strength of her freedom;
Her glory shall rest on us all.
Yet she’s only as rich as the poorest of her poor;
Only as free as the padlocked prison door;
Only as strong as our love for this land;
Only as tall as we stand.”


Patriotism, to me, is not about blind and unquestioning devotion to
authority. It’s about taking responsibility for righting what’s wrong.
It’s about making this country the best place it can be for ALL of us.
It’s about protecting our rivers and our oceans and our streams. It’s
about protecting our air. It’s about advocating for the most
marginalized. It’s about standing up to those who would put their own
profit and gain before the greater good. Patriotism, for me, is service.
Patriotism is activism.]

Trump Says He Doesn’t Want Poor People In Charge Of The Economy

#Scrotus: “These are people that are great, brilliant business minds, and that’s what we need, that’s what we have to have so the world doesn’t take advantages of us,” Trump told the crowd in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. “We can’t have the world taking advantage of us anymore. And I love all people, rich or poor, but in those particular positions I just don’t want a poor person. Does that make sense? Does that make sense?“

Me: He really doesn’t understand that a smart, competent person might choose service to community over financial self-enrichment. He doesn’t get that some of us have other priorities, such as a deep commitment to service to our communities and to the greater good. Social workers, teachers, social justice activists and warriors, those who have chosen a career in the public sector, and so many more: I’m talking about you. And furthermore wealth is so much more about opportunity than it is about intelligence. #Scrotus still believes that he is a “self-made man.” His lens is so dangerously narrow.
