– internet reporting & news these days – pros= anyone can help get messages out there, and ease of access- cons= newsprint going away has left a big hole in real reporters that try to get all the facts straight + cable tv news is mainly run by the entertainment VP’s and not an independent news division, and so divided on left/right that it’s hard to know who to trust
– the latest supreme court ruling that’s lets unlimited financing by big money (corporations) affect election outcomes — well it’s been heading this way for some time anyhow…
– the shrinking middle class in this country… it’s a fact and only getting worse >> i think main causes = outsourcing our jobs to slave labor countries, size & influence of corporations, wages not keeping up with costs of living.
– all the special interest lobbying in govt. and how can regular people get back some say in what’s happening to us (this is not a left/right issue)]]>
