Censorship occurs when a government or a special interest does not want people to know the truth. It creeps up in different ways, including speech, books, music, films, and other arts, the press, radio, television, and the Internet for a variety of claimed reasons including national security, to control obscenity, and hate speech, to protect vulnerable groups, restrict political or religious views, and to prevent slander and libel.

Evil Ways and Means

Submitted by ub on Mon, 08/31/2020 - 09:50

A stereotypical image of an evil man and a purposely distinctive visage of villains, initially from the stage plays of the 1880s.

This has been the heaviest week for the bad news I can recall and since I closely follow journalism developments, I like others agree that the news dam is breaking and some Americans fear that as Election Day grows near, that the next few months may become progressively crazier, including more blood, sweat, and tears.

Kinder Gentler Campaigns

This is a good example of two political rivals showing consideration for one another. Here is a Richard Nixon telegram to John F Kennedy after he was hospitalized with a knee injury and JFK had informed him that he would not campaign until Nixon recovered.

This was 60 years ago today and that was then. Do we expect Republicans to run a clean campaign on their record and their top priorities and what they plan to do for all Americans?

Holy Christ

Appropriate on Sunday, Holy Christ is the phrase that replaces holy crap after your Christian friends continually tell you to stop cursing.

Be Careful Out There

Images of packed spaces have made the rounds on social media for some time, drawing scorn from all concerned about the #Coronavirus spreading. However, there are growing instances of case clusters arising from smaller gatherings.

As a result, I called public health authorities and scheduled an early Monday morning test and received the good news two days later that I had tested negative.  Thanks, be to God for that.

Dystopian America

As a working professional newsman and journalism professor for many years,  I have written, produced and ingested information content and newspaper articles for breakfast, lunch, and dinner for many years, and since I was running out of reading material, I worked with a longtime friend to build several websites that provide the latest digital information content free of charge for not only ours but everyone's empowerment. 

Octopussys Garden

Could this be a fair or funny warning of what is to come on the morning after Election Day in the #USA so they can all fade away? And by the way, none of them can lean on "law and order" since they have all allegedly committed crimes while pussyfooting around the laws of the land.

Trump RNC Speech

Submitted by ub on Fri, 08/28/2020 - 07:11

The Macho and self-described he-man and his holier than thou sidekick who promised American voters many things in the 2016 convention, including  “I alone can fix it” stood before the #USA as a pitiful hapless tyrants. It was a new media version of the lying in Summer. For the record, the #DNC TV ratings were much higher than the #RNC.

Donald's Denouement

Submitted by ub on Thu, 08/27/2020 - 12:26

Trump and Pence inherited a growing economy from the Obama Biden administration. Have they managed to squander it as well as many other benefits like #ACA for the American people without any consideration whatsoever? Have their leadership during the past years been the most corrupt, incompetent, and shameless presidency ever? They couldn't or did not want to fix the pandemic, the economy, or American social justice!
