State Run Media and Priorities

Remember those members of the U.N. who were sent here to observe our voting process?  An article I read said they couldn’t understand why we are not required to show proof of ID to vote and that we allow mail in ballots and even some online voting.  They were surprised at quite a lot of things actually.

This time the USDA delayed its release nine days past the semi-official deadline, far past the election, and until Friday night to report August food stamp data. One glance at the number reveals why: at 47.1 million, this was not only a new all-time record, but the monthly increase of 420,947 from July was the biggest monthly increase in one year.

Sandy victims still without power and supplies.  Some reports I saw say that there is a lot of red tape going on.  Things like supplies just sitting in areas and not being distributed.

Then of course there is Benghazi.  Yes remember that?  Four Americans die in a seven hour dog fight after being told stand down while drones fed it all live to Washington D.C.  SEVEN HOURS.  Then the world told for weeks it was a video to be blamed.

These things are not being reported on our state run media I guess because well… it’s not news?  Not important?  Don’t want to hurt President Lady Parts reputation?  Yet an affair involving decorated military generals is on the front of every web page, newspaper and TV station for two straight days and I’m guessing many more to come.  So very pleased that America has its priorities straight.  ‘Cause well… I was confused as to what we should be focusing on to help our country and its citizens.

    OMGosh – I was ready to deck someone here when I voted. They asked for ID and I said, I didn’t think I had to show ID. “You don’t have a driver’s license?” Yes, I do, that’s besides the point. “Don’t you have your precinct card?” No, I do not. “Well, you have to show ID to vote.” So I guess it depends where you live, If you are alive, and if you speak English – then you are expected to show ID. Because then it’s not an undue burden for you.
