Has anyone seen this ad? I saw it this morning flipping through news channels.


Ads like this are very dangerous, using scare tactics to paint a very bleak destination of the road we are arguable heading down.

Weather or not you subscribe to the ad's long-term prognosis for the US, the crucial problem is how the tone of the ad intentionally shoots wide right of the target as to why and how it got this way.

While frightening us with a dead-end ahead, we get only superficial sound bites of how this road was paved. And I fear that people are buying into this hook, line and sinker.

One last point: This ad is a remake of one that was originally produced in 1986! Here's the original:


In 1986 it was considered too controversial and the networks refused to air it! Could the Fairness Doctrine have played any part in the decision to censor this propaganda in 1986, but allow it to air today?

Why the Kochs Really Embraced Criminal Justice Reform...

It looks like the Koch brothers have scammed us once again.

When news first came out that Charles and David Koch -- the Koch brothers -- were supporting criminal justice reform efforts in Congress, many of us thought, "Wow, they're actually doing something good for once."

And for good reason, too.
