Rerun Day!

Today is what I call Rerun day.  In other words, the topic today is a documentary "Rerun."  Well...that is it might be a rerun to some and others...maybe not.

Here are two observations Granny: Why would any of the people who are now at Fox News stay on, if they're truly journalists, and be branded with the Fox News branding iron--something they'll have to carry around with them for life?

And two: What does it say about the American people that Fox News gets so many viewers, and such high ratings?

I say this: Keep an eye on Fox News. It's a barometer of race relations in this country, and the way the wind is blowing regarding many of the issues that impact us today.

Fox News is not so much influencing or shaping popular opinion, as much as it is following and adhering to public opinion.

Granny, after reading through my response again, it appears as though I'm giving Fox News a pass. I'm not.

Fox News has a rating bonanza because it exploits the fears, anger, prejudices, biases, hatred, and stupidity of a certain demographic.

Fox News taps into these character flaws--convincing its viewers that these feelings are okay, or that they're justified.

Hey Diaspora:

IMHO, I don't think that they should even claim news status. From the very beginning, they've been instrumental in all of the racial division agitating and spreading false information. This is just the first of Reruns that I plan to do this week as a reminder to folks how we got where we are today.

Lately, I've been working on writing my family history book and putting most of my focus towards it. Therefore, I haven't been blogging too much. My neighbor is a history teacher at a college. He is helping me with it and gonna do the editing for me. So far, he told me he has enjoyed reading it and that its captivating which is good news.

Nevertheless, people had better get busy and push back and campaign like they did during the elections. There is more at stake this time than it was then if only people knew how much was at stake. President Obama needs to give up on compromising with the GOP party because they are out to destroy him totally. Those folks really do want him to fail. They were serious! If they get back in control of Congress and the White House, it will be a sad day for America with total destruction on the horizon.

I'm sure its going to be a good read, Granny.

"These folks really do want him to fail."

They said it from the start, and they've gone after Obama like gangbusters--even if it means bringing down the country in order to do it.

I thought I knew human nature: It's hard for me to believe that people will actively work against their own best interest.

But here we are!

I'm really not surprised myself. It's history repeating itself. A zebra does not change its stripes.

All that talk about "states rights" and "less government" is old school Southern strategy. It goes back as far as the 1700s. Back then, they used it to keep slavery in place.

What disappoints me is that people see it, the horn has been blown, and they've been warned. Yet, they act like they are in a hypnotic stupor and too paralyze to fight back to make sure those folks don't get back in power, especially the crazy ones in that kkkteaparty.

Folks need to be shining the light on them left and right and pointing out the accomplishments that the President has made and stop helping them minimize them. But instead they're going along with MSM and the GOP program and helping them to bring him down by highlighting the GOP and MSM pundits talking points. Well... P.T. Barnum said there is a "Sucker born every minute" and he didn't lie.

The other day I was thinking about how the people have lost faith and how they tend to lose it quickly when the going gets rough. That scripture about Elisha throwing meal in the pottage when the men complained that the food had death in it. Well...the American people have been eating food that has death in it(a MSM food). They haven't woke up to the fact that MSM's food has death(death to America) in it yet. Americans need someone to feed them a real meal to bring them back to life and snap them out of their stupor.

With two months to go people ought to be out campaigning for the Democrats like they did during the presidential elections. They should be rallying up the base. Like that woman said..."Fire it Up."

The sudden attack against the black politicians is nothing new either. They did the same thing during reconstruction and transformed it back to an all white congress again. They are for their own people and that's the bottom line. People forget that too is old Southern strategy and don't think for a minute that they have changed and see us as whole humans. They might claim that they do, but in their heart they don't mean it. The old Southerners are die-heart racist and always will be and produce seeds in their like image.
