Leslie Moonves on Donald Trump: “It May Not Be Good for America, but It’s Damn Good for CBS”


oh for the fifties when mainstream journalism was a public trust and did "who what where when why" without a skew in favor of the morbidly wealthy corporate sociopaths and their perverse anti-American anti-Democracy corporations are people, my friend, agenda.

America is in as much danger right now as it was in the years before the Civil War. 60 years of Republican dumb-ing down of public schools so as to manufacture generations of imbeciles stupid enough to vote for people that hate them has resulted in the unintended consequence of destroying the American Dream and the hopes of the wisest American forefathers to create one of the first Democracies on the planet.

Quotes. When Benjamin Franklin was asked after a session of the Constitutional Convention, ""What kind of a government have you given us? "" he replied, ""A democracy, if you can keep it. "" Our republic is founded on the principle that it will continue only as long as the people keep democracy alive.

Forever grateful for my New York state public education from 1960 to 1979, which gifted me with decent CRITICAL THINKING SKILLS.

Election 2024

Democracy or Dictatorship? I dunno? I mean, there's good people........on both sides.

Looks like I'll be forced to do my own research.

our democracy is in as much jeopardy

as it was back in 1861, the start of the first insurrection AKA: THE CIVIL WAR

Hope the good guys win again, as 30% of our fellow Americans believe TFG was sent to us by God.

Which supports my belief that "Christians" must be told what to think and are suckers for authoritarian propaganda.

About 90-percent

Gee - my profile info didn't migrate from the old DU I guess? The main thing - 90% refers to the maximum allowable percentage of nitromethane fuel permitted in modern NHRA Top Fuel and Funny cars. Which is what makes current "nostalgia nitro" so cool - you can still "tip the can" and run straight nitro, if you want to. I'm an aging northeast liberal with an overdeveloped justice gland.
