It took 150 years after America officially abolished slavery to get a national museum on the black experience.
Franklin Delano Williams's insight:

QUOTE FROM ARTICLE:

"THE NMAAHC HAS been long in the making—100 years, to be precise. Its genesis dates to 1915. Fifty years earlier, in May 1865, President Andrew Johnson organized a Grand Review of the Armies to honor the troops. But black soldiers who had fought in the Civil War were not allowed to join the military procession from Capitol Hill down Pennsylvania Avenue.


In 1915, at the 50th anniversary of the original Union victory parade, black Union veterans were permitted to participate. A Committee of Colored Citizens was organized to help defray expenses. The veterans group would evolve into the National Memorial Association, which lobbied Congress to authorize the construction of a Negro Memorial."

And the world as seen through the eyes of a woman will not result in revolution, but it will mark a change towards greater gender equality. Visualizing Hillary raising her right hand to take the oath of office, and Bill holding the Bible, will tell every little girl and boy, that, yes, women can achieve anything.
Franklin Delano Williams's insight:

QUOTE:

Hillary Clinton is not the first progressive Democratic woman to be challenged by Bernie Sanders. He ran against me in 1986 when I was running for my second term as governor of Vermont. At that time he had little affinity for the Democratic Party. When advised that his third-party candidacy might result in a Republican victory, he saw no difference between Democrats and Republicans, saying: “It is absolutely fair to say you are dealing with Tweedledum and Tweedledee.”

Voters did not agree. Sanders received 14 percent of the vote, the Republican candidate, Peter Smith received 38 percent, and I won with 47 percent.---- Madeleine May Kunin, Former Vermont Governor

Franklin Delano Williams's insight:

...."On the Democratic side Hillary Clinton leads Bernie Sanders 53/32. Sanders does keep gradually moving closer- our previous couple polls had her leading 56/28 in December and 59/26 in November. But he still has some weaknesses that may make it hard for him to catch up. Primary among these is African American voters- Clinton leads 82/8 with them and has a 79/9 favorability compared to 27/23 for Sanders. That does suggest some possibility for Sanders to improve his position- part of his problem is just that black voters don’t really know him yet- but he’s starting at a tremendous disadvantage that will make the upcoming run of Southern primaries very difficult for him."----- PPP

"Clinton Recounts Her Stealth Ventures Out Of The White House As First Lady" | TPM | 02/03/16 | Politics From My Point Of View | Scoop.it
At Wednesday's CNN town hall in New Hampshire, Hillary Clinton recounted stealthily venturing out of the White House in a plain-clothes disguise while first lady.

Asked by Anderson Cooper what she would do if she could be anynmous for a day, she explained she already had some experience from when she was first lady.

"I would put on a baseball cap and sunglasses and, you know, sweat pants and a sweat shirt and pull my hair back and I would go walk," she said. "I would tell the Secret Service they had to wear casual clothes, they had to take the thing out of their ears, they had to look like they were just tourists."

"Hillary Clinton is Evolution" | Foundation for a Bioeconomy | 01/21/16 | Politics From My Point Of View | Scoop.it

So why is Hillary the key to Evolution?

Hillary is carrying forward the Obama legacy in several ways. First and foremost, she approaches international diplomacy with an even hand.


Second, she represents everything needed to start a NEW economy that will finally provide alternative, competitive sources to fossil fuels providing an economic future for the U.S, and a War Chest for the Democratic Party.

So what do we need to start a Bioeconomy?

Read this article for the answers. Here's an outline of the key requirements.

1. Women:

2. Upfront Investment:

3. Education:

4. Low cost resources to create and support American Manufacturing:

5. Defeat of Fossil Fuels:


Franklin Delano Williams's insight:

"How many rural hospitals will close in 2016?" | iVantage Health Analytics | 01/24/16 | Politics From My Point Of View | Scoop.it
INFACT:

At the NRHA's Rural Health Policy Institute conference next month, we'll be unveiling important new research into the state of rural healthcare to rural hospital leaders and legislators. 

Our findings - which span rural vulnerability, health disparity and value - will shape the national conversation surrounding rural healthcare in 2016. 
  • How many rural hospitals are at risk for closure today and what will happen to their communities if they do?
  • What is the impact of policy on rural hospitals and their communities?
  • Where are the communities with the greatest health disparities and how does the rural health safety net serve these vulnerable populations?
  • What can urban hospitals learn from rural facilities delivering exceptional value?
The 2016 Rural Relevance Study has these answers and more. We'll be releasing the study on February 2

"Bernie Sanders' idea of revolution is not believable without reparations" | Guardian | 01/21/16 | Politics From My Point Of View | Scoop.it
The Democratic presidential candidate said he does not support reparations for slavery because they would be divisive. That is disappointing
Franklin Delano Williams's insight:

QUOTE FROM ARTICLE: "Without confronting the lasting damage slavery and its offspring inflicted (and continue to inflict) on black communities, racial disparities will always exist – even within separate classes. But Sanders is either unwilling or unable to see how this is so.
