It'll be interesting to see the kind of "reasons" or other excuses the Clintonites will resort -- or stoop, to using to explain away her sexist treatment of Bernie Sanders for his views on gun control and how [best] to achieve more of it.
Media wise 90 % of everything Americans see, hear or read is controlled by 6 large corporations. Six Corporate CEO's who decide what you should hear, read or see and if you as a reporter don't play by their dictates , you're out of a job and black listed. Those 6 companies are Comcast, News Corp( Rupert Murdoch),Disney, Viacom,Time Warner and CBS. Like I just said together they control 90% of everything Americans see, hear or read. Without being a well informed citizen how can you make decisions on domestic , international affairs or wars.
On June 8, 1967, Israel attacked the American naval vessel USS Liberty in international waters, and tried to sink it.
The USS LIBERTY was an American an unarmed spy ship. After repeatedly doing fly by's of the USS Liberty for 8 hours – and making 9 overflights with Israeli jets, within 200 feet … close enough for the pilots and the sunbathing Liberty sailors on deck to waive at each other.
Recently I posted a blog stating "Americans have been so bullshitted by the corporate owned right wing media, owned totally by the rich and privileged , that they have no problem mindlessly spending 800 thousand million dollars (800 billion) or 50 cents of every tax dollar they pay, without question for a standing military that for the last 70 years has done nothing but play 'high class musclemen' for Americas corporations.
I was Wrong.
Actually the figure is closer to 53% of your tax dollar is spent on your Military.
I mean, I love, love, LOVE Bernie. I'm Feelin' the Bern, for sure. But last week was a rough week for him. Hillary, Biden, Trump, Carson, Paul Ryan and Benghazi all dominated the news cycle for many days. So much has happened in the past week that the debate seems like an event in the distant past!
If the Democrats were as interested in Governing Well as they are in Campaign funds,
the Democrats Could dig up more verifiable dirt with cost efficiency on Republicans.
Getting the Republicans back into the minimum minority would increase Good Governance into Grandeur.
OK Folks.. What I hope to do with this "Journal" is
- 1. Introduce myself.
- 2. Include my Spiritual, Political, Philosophical,
- and Moral views about my life, and life in general.
- 3. Hopefully write at least a few paragraphs each day.
- 4. Have opinions about what I see on the news each day.
- 5. Finally, I hope to entertain others and and educate them.
Today, Friday, October 23, 2015, I was in my study working on this piece (and listening to Thom Hartmann, as usual) when Thom read a piece by Dominique Matti entitled, “Why I am Absolutely an Angry Black Woman". When Thom read the piece I was struck by its title, for I wrote an op-ed entitled “Baltimore and The Angry Black Man” back in May after the Baltimore “riots”. http://www.thomhartmann.com/users/melanicman/blog/2015/05/baltimore-and-....
