I'll bet you thought I was going to, once again, write about Benghazi. Although I borrowed Hillary's quote, that is not my intention. But I am pleased that more information is coming out. I read a lot of news on line and watch a lot of TV news shows. The past few days, every new show and a large percentage of the headlines are focused on a fat, homely, arrogant old man who knows how to make money and apparently little else. His money gives him power and privilege and a young, well sort of young, girlfriend who has as much attitude as he does.
Now, my question is, is an old racist fool really that newsworthy? If he didn't own a professional basketball franchise, this would have been a trailer to the real news and forgotten two days later. When I was growing up, a few years later than our subject, casual racism was the norm. He just never learned better.
While the press is having the screaming meemies over this idiocy, the scandal that needs and deserves their attention is an "also ran". The vicious cruelty to our American military heroes brought about by the criminal mismanagement of the Bureau of Veterans Affairs should be red meat to the hounds of the press. The press should be all over them, taking names and ripping out the causes for this mess. We should be seeing reorganizations, firings, and new faces in charge. Unfortunately, the press turn into lap dogs around anything involving their beloved liberal President's minions and in this administration, no one is held responsible.
Have you heard that the Democrats are trying to change the Presidential election laws? I'll bet you haven't. They have already persuaded ten blue states to change their Electoral College laws so that the winner of the national popular vote gets all of the states electoral votes. I realize that this is out in the weeds a little bit, but it is important. You see that this would give populous states with big cities added power to select the President. It just happens that the populous states with big cities, tend to be liberal. You don't see this in the main stream media.
There are so many things that an unbiased press should be digging into. The country is in trouble and the power hungry would make it worse. I saw a headline where one columnist said we have lost our Republic and become a nation of oligarchs. That may be true. After all, a big mouthed old rich guy from California is getting more press than the Presidents failed trip to Asia.
