Are we being fooled again? By our Reps and Senators?

There is a trend in Washington, and it resembles a sleazy con. 16 years ago our folks in Washington quickly voted to fund the war. Bush took the money and started after Hussein. But we didn’t declare war, and the fighting goes on. We are told it was Bushes fault, but they are supposed to have the facts before pulling a trigger. Nope Bushes fault as they all quickly got in line to vote yes. Perhaps we should push the pause button.

Vermont Press Censoring? Working to find truth or for Lobbyists?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

In a recent commentary article on Vermont Digger, this reporter was censored and prevented from asking questions on the open board. Below is the article.

Is learning proper English actually racist?

You’ll see this report from Breitbart news where Washington University is claiming using or requiring students to use proper grammar is racist.  Perhaps this show how poorly our school systems are doing? Harvard class of 2102, taking introduction to Congress were under the impression that cheating was acceptable? 125 students in the class were caught cheating on a test. 42% of the student body was cheating on homework according to their own survey. Is this the standard of excellence we strive for? On a college level? Give us your thought

Youth look toward Comedy to get information about world events

Comedy and comedy news shows are extremely funny. As we all know comedy often has a kernel of truth, sometimes the kernel is a nugget of gold. But when does comedy cross the line? Can it? We have to know the difference between comedy, actual truths and propaganda used to tear down people doing good works. Steve Harvey is a classic example, and it’s terribly humorous on some levels. But people weren’t making fun of him before he stepped up to assist the inner cities. So timing is critical to humor, it’s fresh it’s relevant. But is it serving other purposes? You be the judge. First I’ll give the comedy skit. Then what Steve Harvey is doing to help those less fortunate in our country. We’d love to hear your thoughts and comments.

Why some people consider CNN faux news – Steve Harvey Crucified

Below is a clip of what Steve Harvey does for the children of the inner cities. It’s a wonderful program, where in two weeks he solves problems the Chicago school system can’t in 12 years. The whole family is on a wonderful track a year later.

 

Here is what CNN said about Steve Harvey and his decision to help our country transform our inner cities.  Apparently he is a mediocre Negro. My personal opinion is I’ve seldom seen such inaccurate and racist reporting. Let us know what you think in viewing these two clips.
