Ben Carson Campaign News


Something had to be done to shake the carrion-eating media birds from their perches over Donald Trump, and there's nothing like in-fighting to get their attention. They thrive on conflict.

It's interesting to see how the various news media frame their stories. Guess which news outlet here qualifies as a giggly pillow fight and which outlet has hurled it's entire hyperbole stockpile.

Using the most visceral rhetoric all the time has a desensitizing effect on the audience, so dish it out intermittently and wisely.

Jeb's Got It Backwards On Productivity.


BBC News
Totally oblivious to the fact that most people are working two jobs and over 50 hours per week.

Free Malaysia Today
The rest of the world is moving in the opposite direction of Jeb.

Independent
Employers across the country including retirement homes, hospitals and car centres, are implementing the change

The Guardian
An experiment was successful in proving increased productivity with shorter work weeks


Economic Policy Institute
Proof Americans are working harder than ever and not getting paid what they are owed.
Surprised?

It's the same old Republican logical failure. They repeat the same reasoning despite being proven wrong over and over again. What really blows my mind is that this kind of ridiculous rhetoric works on the uninformed voters who continue to elect these people.

Protests Are So Yesterday

Protests were once hailed as a part of free speech, identified in the U.S. Constitution as a right to a redress of grievances.

One of the telltale signs that you live in a dictatorship is that peaceful protesters get ignored, pushed back, corralled, beaten and arrested.

The truth is that free speech is merely a lure. A Machiavellian or Orwellian device for the authorities to identify and mark malcontents for surveillance and harrassment.

Now that CISA was passed buried in the Federal Budget Bill, America as we know it is finished.

We were once called citizens. Now as our grievances are met with violence from authorities, we are limited to the titles of subject, dissident, or terrorist.
