One of my obsessions is independent news. So while isolating during the Coronavirus Crisis, I’ll try to share a daily YouTube playlist of pertinent news and views. Listen to it while you’re knitting or doing push-ups.
Then call someone. Remind them they’re not alone in this. We are not alone, we are many.
Our Leaders Don’t Love Us
Rejection is difficult to deal with. And right now, it’s obvious that our elected leaders are not so into us.
From Trump wanting people to go back to work, to the Texas Lt. Governor’s willingness to die rather than save lives, we may assume: our elected officials do not love us.
(Except for Bernie Sanders, other progressives, and a few good Democrats. Possibly, a Republican or two.)
Proof: Follow the Money
How can you tell? Money follows love. This is true when Dad writes his will, and it’s true when Congress balances the budget. Now connect the dots… (this is the fun, puzzle part)… If Americans hardly get anything… for all the taxes they pay… (Ouch. Sniffle. This is the ugly part, when suppressed realizations come crowding in)…
That’s right. You knew all along. But instead of dealing with rejection with adult equanimity, too many Democratic voters bent over backwards in a desperate attempt to make Party Leaders love them — resulting in an excess of Super Tuesday votes for the iffy Joe Biden.
That’s right. Everyone knows Joe Biden is iffy, which brings us to our next conclusion… If Democratic leadership knows Biden is iffy, and is likely to lose the General Election…
That’s right. The Democratic Party put their weight behind Donald Trump’s second term. (He’s extremely useful for “resistance” fundraising.)
Enter Coronavirus Crisis
But the joke may be on Democratic leaders, instead of voters. Enter Coronavirus Crisis. The more poorly President Trump handles the current crisis, the more likely Biden could win the 2020 Election.
Establishment Democrats have backed themselves into a corner. The only way to avoid an iffy President Biden, is to nominate former front-runner Bernie Sanders.
Responsible News Provider Capitulates
PBS may be the first mainstream media outlet to accept these new circumstances. Instead of blocking Bernie Sanders, last night they aired Bernie’s Coronavirus town hall on the PBS News Hour.
What else can a responsible news provider do? President Trump wants to send people back to work prematurely, assuring many more Americans would die. A sicko Texas Lt. Gov says elders are willing to die, in order to save the stock market. Speaking of stocks, some U.S. Senators buy and sell them, illegally, based on insider information — capitalizing on the Coronavirus, while failing to warn the public.
I thanked PBS for their public service.
Here’s today’s independent newsy playlist, with progressive views. And a musical ending. Listen, as you isolate. We’re all in this together. Peace.
