The Real Deal

Submitted by ub on Tue, 02/11/2020 - 09:09

America needs a real leader who is an expert, not an apprentice. We need a unifier, not a divider. We must insist on a successful businessman, not one who's been bankrupt. We The People need The Real deal.

A leader who serves our nation, not his family, one who embraces our allies, not our adversaries, one who pays taxes, not hides them from sight, one who will tell it like it is, not continue lying to us. We The People need a role model for our children and not a foul-mouthed adulterer... etc.

Always Check It Out

False information spreads like wildfire across social networks, particularly during primaries, midterm, and general elections.

I learned a long time ago never to believe everything you're told or read until I become engaged in checking all facts. I reject terms like fake news, witch hunt, the enemy of the people.

Never has it been easier than now to do just that. This is the reason I emphasize to all my students to become involved in an exhaustive fact-checking process. Everyone should be doubling down on facts.

The United States of America must conduct an investigation and consider canceling special interest influence and donations. These culprits are spreading cancer and endangering our government by increasingly infiltrating our political system of government.

Special interests are the predatory animals which are devouring our democracy. Some of these toxic groups direct public policy and increasingly play a destructive part in the development of political and social systems. Special interests are demeaning and patronizing. They've gone wild and are now dangerous and out of control.

I never want to see democracy’s final hurrah, and trust me neither do you. Believe me that I can tell you!

Years ago, I surprised a lot of people, including myself by making a career move from the dark side to a brighter side: After a lifetime of jaded journalism trenches starting with my very intense 3 months long full-time internship with The Washington Post and Newsweek, I was hired by NBC News, then management stints at Univision, Telemundo, VOA, News12 and The AP, where I finally took a buy out and moved into academia.
