    I've been trying of late to accept the tragedy of the last election and steer away from politics. Perhaps this article will help others to understand how the death of democracy within the state I live has created such a firestorm of frustration. I live here, I see this and know that piece by piece, inch by inch destroyed the rights of the people and they have left little recourse for the citizens. This can only end badly.

    #1 You're absolutely right Manjit. My greatest fear is this will end in bloodshed. They are willing to fight this with all they have. The question that arises is this: is the oil & gas industry, is DAPL willing to spill the blood of our Native Americans for profit? This situation will show Trump's true character as the nation's leader. He either cares for all the people or the just those who bow to his wallet.

    Not only did the US media stayed away from this story in 2016 but when the Inquistr ran this story on their website, they put a massive disclaimer in the graphic to distance themselves from this opinion. Not only did the US media stayed away from this story in 2016 but when the Inquistr ran this story on their website, they put a massive disclaimer in the graphic to distance themselves from this opinion. http://www.inquisitr.com/3767868/dakota-oil-pipeline-can-donald-trump-reverse-obama-decision-to-block-dakota-access-pipeline/

    We will soon know what fate awaits the protestors - the corporate and banking forces are massively against them, Trump supports pipeline initiatives and reports also allege he has shares. Obama acted too late to step in. IMHO I don't think Trump will show any sympathy when he reverses this decision and when Trump's presidency is over, we will look back at this as a huge scar on democratic freedom due to excessive corporate power. I hope I am wrong and these courageous people are listened to. Trump already threatened to go after media even without this story, how he handles this will explain a lot about the direction of his Presidency.

    What do you call the opposite of a sore loser - a rub-it-in-your-face winner? It wasn't Trump last night. Trump spoke eloquently and politely of his running opponent early this morning and urged Americans to all come together. All of the hate and negative rhetoric between the two was only propaganda to get us to vote. Let us remember how their families are good friends in real life. Now that it is time to get a clear vision for America, let us all come together, NOT COME TO GET HER!

    No, #10 is because of all the politicians. Also, the metro is also the WORST transit system in the US. The DoT threatened to shut it down if they didn't fix their system after decades of neglect and we are currently in the midst of mass closings and single tracking while WMATA desperately tries to stay open.

    #4 @Jim Murray- Things aren't really crazy in DC with the election. That happens everywhere else. From that perspective it's a great time to come. The only downside right now, and for the next year, is that the Metro Rail system (subway) is undergoing repairs with shut downs of different train lines for a week or more at a time. It's tolerable right now because so many people are on vacations or working away from the city.

    Excellent post, @Jim 🐝 Cody, you covered a lot of fun facts for which even some longtime Washingtonians (like me) were unaware. I really hope you have the chance to visit the nation's capital again sometime soon. If so, Jim, my wife Nicole and I have a nice guest bedroom and bathroom waiting with your name on it. It already passed muster with my Greek mother-in-law and my wife's 92-year old aunt. So you know it's got to be good if it got a thumbs up from them! Meanwhile, I'll let you know for sure if we ever make it down your way in Alabama -- or perhaps we can all meet up at a remote location for a beBee meeting or conference. Lastly, kudos for being featured in the latest Inc.com column by @John White, MBA. John's words speak volumes about your work ethics, dedication, intellect and wonderful demeanor.

    My thoughts are mirrored in comments here from @Loribeth Pierson (my favorite MLK quote, too), @Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman, and @Pamela 🐝 Williams. It has to start at the top - but not just as corporate, government, and NGO leaders who must begin to manage their managers and stop tolerating bullying and discrimination. It must start at the top - parents must teach their children love, consideration, and compassion, and they must be modeling that behavior.

    @David B. Grinberg on the surface it is easy to celebrate and commemorate Independence Day as a time of liberation and freedom for all. There is a cost to freedom, equality, equal opportunity and living a fair existence anywhere. There is a saying I have heard growing up, "nothing is for free; you get what you pay for; and you pay for what you get." Are we truly free and we live in a society which endorses inequality? Inequality is endorsed when people are marginalized because of status, gender, race, religion, etc. The very fact that people are still to this very moment fighting for fair and equal pay and treatment is an indicator that the cost of freedom and liberation for many is to accept what is given to them. To receive more, someone will fight, and someone will win eventually.... Thus we are free and still not liberated... A treaty of correction will come one day ... Just some thoughts
    You have once again shared a well researched and thought provoking piece! Thanks for sharing.

    David, idealistically your post points out what America should be but is far from being. As @Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman states, to achieve our ideal we must begin at the top but unfortunately I see regression more than progression. As someone who was once threatened into dropping a harassment suit by an EEOC representative I can only say that American citizens need to get their heads out of their arses and realize most of the 'protections' have extreme limitations. As Javier stated; " My freedom ends where someone else's begins " and quite frankly I learned the hard way that my freedoms and protections end sooner depending on the financial value of the 'someone else'. That is the true tragedy in the world today, that our very existence has a dollar value attached to it.

    Excellent points @David B. Grinberg and interesting 52 years after CRA and over 200 years after the signing of the Declaration of Independence that we still struggle with the issues. It's been a long road of increasing social awareness and wrestling with our social conscious.

    Great post-@David B. Grinberg thanks for sharing your opinion. Love the quote "The time is aways right to do what is right". One of my favorite quotes of Mr. King is "Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that."

    States want to control us too much. Freedom and equality don't really exist. We say " My freedom ends where someone else's begins " .

    What do I think? I think you wrote a home run article, @David B. Grinberg. Where do we go from here to be sure every American citizen has equal opportunity? I don't know but I think we need to start at the top.
