    I don't know why, but I'm often aware of missing information.  For example, we don't know the name of the person who videoed Mitt when he made his 47% declaration.  We never will know who that was because that person's life would be endangered if she or he went public.

    And in the Civil Rights movement, so many people took a beating or gave their life and never get a mention.  So many sacrificed so much - ordinary people doing extraordinary things.  Obama believes in ordinary people organizing to change society.  He knows we're always standing on the shoulders of others.

    So I love it that President Obama is saying this:

    part of that long line of folks who sometimes are nameless, oftentimes didn’t make the history books, but who constantly insisted on their dignity, their share of the American dream.

    I'm not liberal. I'm actually just anti-evil, OK? - Elon James White
