We vehemently bid goodbye to this nightmare of a year, the quarantines, empty shelves of toilet paper, nurses forced to wear garbage bags, and ignorant white people declaring in public places that wearing a mask and sanity is oppression. So, to review the year that never should have been, we offer a selection of graphics that have appeared on PlanetPOV during 2020, in chronological order.
There is no mechanism for the change you want, and most of the country wouldn't want it. I hate it when the American left become caricatures of themselves. How they mirror what the Tea Party was on the other side of the coin.
The world has changed, or rather it has been changed. The New York Times has not. They and all the newspapers of the land were once considered to be a major institution. That was when they were the primary providers of news and information. And of opinion.
This paranoid rabble-rouser and dimwit have already done more to divide Americans than any hate-filled, filthy, denier on FOX's hotbed of virulent racism and mindless denial of decency and civility. Now he advocates more hate, with more bizarre and unreal fantasies to support it.
This looks more like the last stage of a coup. Consolidating power in himself by stacking the courts as his puppets, discrediting belief in the truth by attacking the press as fake and rigging elections with voter suppression. Spreading propaganda and lies while facilitating Russian-aided disinformation on social media. Trying to shut down the postal service which means shutting down voting by mail. Lastly, raising a fascist, well armed militia to stand against his political enemies. The threat to our democracy couldn't be more urgent.
The contestants will be randomly selected from communities all around the United States. They will be informed that they may likely be chosen to die for the good of the economy and encouraged to give their best performance to convince the panel why they are more valuable to society than they are a burden.
Why do Republicans appear to be playing an all-in, "Doomsday" game. Is there no tomorrow, Mitch?
Trump has both sides promoting his propaganda. He doesn't care if it's simultaneously being condemned by Dems. There's an old Hollywood saying, "There's no such thing as bad publicity." For propaganda, that's especially true.
We could stop Donald Trump. But we can't with a corrupt media. They are the Invisible Actor (or a proxy). We don't know what their motives are, or who their leaders are. And the issue never gets any press and is never open to discussion.
his last November, four decades after the ouster of the Peacock Throne, the largest anti-government protests since the fervor of 1979 spread around Iran were ignited. I, who pride myself as a lay expert was caught flat-footed.
