Thought for the Day

Capitalism does a number of things very well; it helps create an entrepreneurial spirit; it gets people motivated to come up with new ideas, and that’s a good thing.

Wall Street is greedy and reckless. That’s fine. But what do you do?

We become stronger when blacks and whites, Latinos, Asian Americans, and Native Americans, when all of us stand together.

– Bernie Sanders
