The crazy days of Autumn are here and quickly growing, while some #Republicans keep trying while innocent Americans keep dying.

Do we know who is paying the tab for others to take the lead in a @GOP race to destroy the fiber of #USA Democracy? The larger question is why and who is forcing these insane #Republicans who appear intent in killing innocent #Americans on their fast lane to the bottom?

One-hit wonders achieve short-term popularity for only one piece of work and become known solely for that success so long ago.

For example 25 years ago, back In 1996, I was Station Manager in charge of building a broadcast station in Valverde County Texas. KTRG-TV (Television from the Rio Grande) was right smack dab near the US-Mexico border, with the transmitter in Eagle Pass and offices in Del Rio Texas. During that time, a one-hit-wonder duo known as Los Del Río’s recorded their one and only smash hit record that broke the charts and smashed the hit parade.

The rise of Fascism in Spain followed a classic trajectory that can serve as a blueprint for how Democracy can be destroyed.  

My grandfather's family fled Fascism in Spain and my dad's family lost everything when we left Communism in Cuba. These facts underline how liars can dismantle our fragile Democracy.

There is absolutely no horsing around near any train tracks whatsoever. Disorderly conduct leads to injuries or death, but instead of typical warning signs or lame announcements at train stations, Metro came up with #DumbWays2Die, a song that has garnered 157 million YouTube views.

The tune is about dumb ways to die for example, by poking a grizzly bear with a stick, or taking your helmet off in outer space and it features a catchy little chorus you won't be able to stop humming to yourself because singing it is a little morbid: So many dumb ways To die.

Everyone living in America should know they can formally request the @FCC to investigate any local TV station for the content of their broadcasts. I know because I have held an #FCC license since my first job in broadcasting.

The FCC maintains jurisdiction over the areas of broadband access, fair competition, radio frequency use, media responsibility, public safety, and homeland security. The FCC was formed by the Communications Act of 1934 to replace the radio regulation functions of the Federal Radio Commission.
