I just started up a YouTube channel based around politics and society from a progressive point of view. My first video is actually a video where I talk about Trump. You guys can check it out here https://youtu.be/slIaK3Ug6_I
Plain and simple and I just want to hear if people think this is a possible way to take our power back and start making Washington work for us and Wall Street lose at least a little and slowly maybe even more and more. Instead of being the 99% camping out on Wall Street being labeled as losers, lazy and many other negative things we somehow turn our attention to the media starting with local news stations in as many towns as we can. Start picketing them to follow up on stories they initially start about corruption in government locally including branches where funds were misused by those in charge of education, human services, etc. In Des Moines we had the head of education give herself some ridiculous raise in the hundreds of thousands while school budgets were cut further and further down, art, music and drama programs cut, grades dropped among students due to teacher cut backs and more. The local news reported her name and her crime. Congress requested her appear and answer questions. She refused a few times. No warrant or arrest was made like should be the case. Then, in the end, she appeared, answered some questions that weren't very tough considering her crime. Nothing more was ever reported. Her name was forgotten. Did she have to pay the money back. I don't think so but there was no local news program that claimed this to be an outrage. I don't even remember if they followed up with the findings. No jail time was heard of but she lost her position. Let's push the reporters to stop giggling about their own banter and a goat that was confused in traffic this morning and make them remember that their real purpose was to be the watchdogs for the people. Let's make it not so fun to go into work and leave the building throughout the day until they giggle less and deal with the serious stuff more.
What does it say about the Republicans that Donald Trump is leading the most recent polls among the GOP field of presidential candidates according the most recent FOX News poll . Well, as far as I'm concerned it confirms the idea that the Republican Party is as batsh*t crazy as it's ever been. Donald Trump? This guy that spewed some of the most insulting comments about illegal Mexican immigrants ever heard and then proclaimed he would win the Latino vote. Who says he'll construct an impenetrable wall along the Mexican border and will make Mexico pay for it. Who proclaims to be the smartest businessman in history, yet filed for bankruptcy so many times even he has lost count. To be honest, I doubt it tells us anything about how things will shake out by the summer of 2016. I'm going to go out on a limb and predict Bush will finally get the nomination and will tap Rubio for VP. But for now, I'll have to admit the Republican dog and pony show is hilarious.
