A breakdown of America’s political tribes overlooks the millions that voted for a real POTUS. Saluting USA working-class heroes.

US politics feels like a fight to the death between well-meaning patriots out to defend the good of the country and madmen who aim to destroy it. As @TheDemocrats continue to represent forgotten Americans, they will keep voting for real representation. Taxpayers and registered voters, it's now time to wake up and smell reality. The truth is that Democrats will always continue to be advocates for the common man.

After years of bullying from a lost political party of liars and cheaters, everyone should agree the we forever reject the toxic practice.

These past years were an American disaster orchestrated by a chaotic and toxic person who habitually seeks to harm and intimidate anyone perceived as vulnerable. Stopping it is a necessary ethical building block of society.

Georg Frederic Handel reportedly held a soprano out the window by her ankles. Beethoven kept throwing wild tantrums from the piano. Arturo Toscanini was heard screaming at his musicians in the NBC Orchestra.

After years of having a government and leaders without ethics, it's necessary to stop all lies and cheating in politics and everywhere.

Ethical standards are the moral principles that govern everyone’s behavior while carrying out or conducting any activity.

For example, in sports we have seen this lately in horse racing, where most of the time there are small prices used in many tickets and bets. The cheater who is dangerous to the bettor is the low percentage one who strikes sparingly without anyone even noticing.

On this day 110 years ago, New Yorkers got their first peek at the New York Public Library @nypl and their twin lion guards.

When EC Potter was given the commission to sculpt two flanking animals for the New York Public Library’s main branch at 5th Avenue and 42nd Street in 1910, he found himself fielding several suggestions. Former President and avid hunter Theodore Roosevelt declared he’d like to see bison. This was not easy.

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.
