Two days ago and subsequent to Donald J. Trump’s “outreach” to “African-Americans” (to only white folks), former Trump former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski insinuates that Black venues and communities are too dangerous during an appearance on Anderson Cooper’s 360 (aired on CNN). Aside from the white, dog-whistle terminology that Lewandowski employs (I.e. “out of control…overrun, etc.”) there’s a lot to be said here, but as the old adage goes: “a picture is worth a thousand words”
I'm not entirely sure why you only discuss America's viewpoint on the TPP. It's as if your vvote passes it. If any other country including Canada rejects it. IT IS DEAD!!!! The world is not about you.
I came “of age” in the 80’s and, like many young people in their college years, music defined that place and time of my life. Music probably had, and has, more of an impact in my life because I was a fairly accomplished musician at the time (chops too rusty now) working my way through undergraduate school by playing in a progressive-jazz band doing all manner of gigs from smoky dives in Redondo, to high school dances and proms. Though I was never a big R&B fan (R&B a.k.a. “Race Records”), I did love Prince; his musicianship is legendary.
I recently wrote in a in the blog to Zapdam about how many of the poorer elderly and working poor are hurt by the cost of cable TV and Internet. These are people who are either alone and homebound or working some horrid degrading job and the one enrichment they have in life is TV. For me, my highest months bill is my Internet. For many of my nieghbors it's cable TV. These are people who can rarely afford even McDonald's or a real movie. Giving up the cable is such a sacrifice for these people. They grieve for the days of free TV.

[quote]Trump: Presidential Candidates Shouldn’t Be Allowed To Use Teleprompters
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump argued, “if you’re running for president, you should not be allowed to use a teleprompter” at a speech in New Hampshire on Friday.
America is 41st in the world not first in press freedom. The US, paranoid about journalism are cracking down on press freedom, continuing a recent trend in which governments are increasing their influence over the media.
Many reporters ,jouralists and even bloggers are self censoring for fear of repercussions from domestic 24/7 government surveillance.
Exodus 20:13 of the King James Bible, says 'THOU SHALL NOT KILL'. In Matthew 5:21-26 Jesus amplifies the meaning of the 6th commandment, "thou shall not kill." He brings out that to commit murder means more then just killing someone. Murder is a sin. .
The U.S. of A is a bustling, robust superpower with an ethnically diverse population of over 330 million. Not a socialist nation, ot is the second ranking large nation (nations of over 50 million population) in terms of economic freedom, and third ranking large nation for personal freedom. Because of this, personal choices play a huge, primary role in one's successes or failures. You are free to make important decisions, but responsible for the consequences. This is one of the things that makes America great.
