On History…..

We no longer teach true history in our schools.  It has been perverted by small groups who have too much control and not enough facts.

It is rewritten by the winners/fanatics/religious/teapartiers/pick a side/denomination. As a country we have forgotten that WE armed Castro and his rebels. WE armed Saddam Hussein and his rebels. WE put Marcos in power. And so many more. And it always comes back to bite us in the ass.

This country needs to quit forgetting our history and realize that what is occurring is NOT new. It is merely political repetition. The only difference between now and then is the news is there and can dig deeper than it was ever able to. The new fox/cnn/abc/cbs news reporters no longer have respect for anything or anyone, let alone telling the objective truth. I truly miss Walter Cronkite. The man had morals, compassion and objectivity.  Walter Winchell, the same and that is something that is sadly lacking in our country today.

People no longer believe in the good of the country and helping others. Too many are out for themselves and it really sucks. And they seem to all be religious fanatics or politicians.  End of soapbox sermon.

About avlanchlovngirl

I believe that we are here for a reason. We just don't know what it is. I believe there are no borders or color differentiations. We're all the same under the skin and we all want the same basic things. I hate injustice and tend to take a stand against what I feel is unfair and just plain wrong. So, read on and comment if you'd like. Happy New Year!

    Not taking the blame away from my fellow broadcasters, since things have changed much in the last 40 years I’ve been doing this (and not for the better), but it’s all what I call “The McDonaldization Of America”. Think about it; a Quarter Pounder looks and tastes and same in every restaurant world wide. People look at the movie “JFK” and think it’s all true. USA Today. The fact that most people get their real news from John Stewart if horrible to think of…and I loike John Stewart but that’s not the point.
