News vs Views

Submitted by ub on Thu, 07/15/2021 - 08:16

The definition of news is the exception to daily verified occurrences. News must always be fact based, unbiased report of events.

Views are typically editorial pieces where they chose a subject or event in accordance with the editors personal views.

The news does not include the thousands of airplanes that safely landed all over the world. it is about the ones that crashed and the carnage caused by the accident or sabotage.

Every American may be familiar with the classic comic duo of Abbot and Costello’s 1940s who’s on first favorite comedy routine. 

From restricting voter access and politicizing the US-Mexico border to targeting transgender student-athletes to further rolling back abortion rights, Texas representatives, Greg Abbott and Ted Cruz priorities read like a con man’s bingo card.

These two clowns have updated it to modern times. Trumpeter Governor Greg Abbott is vowing to arrest Democrat legislators who decided to mess with Texas by leaving left the state.

What can we expect from a liar who worships Hitler, pays others to take his tests, wears cakes of makeup, and fake hair and small???

The big lie or große Lüge is a gross distortion or misrepresentation of the truth, used especially as a propaganda technique. The Nazi Germany expression was coined by Adolf Hitler when he dictated his 1925 book, Mein Kampf, to describe the use of a lie so colossal that no one would believe that someone could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously.

The USA Pledge of Allegiance was written in August 1892 by Socialist minister Francis Bellamy and was originally published in The Youth's Companion on September 8, 1892 so the pledge would be used by citizens in any country.

The original version read:

"I pledge allegiance to my Flag and the Republic for which it stands, one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."

In 1923, the words, "the Flag of the United States of America" were added. At this time it read:

Caribbean Crisis

Submitted by ub on Mon, 07/12/2021 - 19:29

Caribbean counties are taking it to the streets. Consider the protests in Cuba, the president of Haiti assassinated, and Venezuela arrest.

Even a well-intentioned USA intervention in Haiti, Cuba,  Venezuela, or anywhere else in the region will set off alarm bells across the Caribbean and throughout Latin America.

The difficult truth is that America is not going to be the primary engine of political change in either Haiti or Cuba. Meaningful, durable political change in both nations lies in the hands of the populations themselves.

Viva CUBA Libre

There is no way to predict wether the Cuban protesters will eventually prevail against repression, but their courage is commendable.

I served as the first GM-15/10 Director Office of Cuba Broadcasting for TV Marti under President George HW Bush. I have never ever seen anything like these protests by the Cuban people that are being carried out all over the Caribbean island.
