Today’s news … Monday, October 10, 2016

Today’s news and information gleanings from here and there.

Today’s quote … “After prayer and research, I am convinced that Donald Trump is God’s choice for president.” – Grace Martin, in her letter-to-the-editor in today’s LNP – Always Lancaster. (see below)

Another quotecringeworthy | “I feel that it is wrong that these are the two choices I have.” – Comment from this mail.com article.

national-embarrassmentOPINION: Last night’s “debate” was anything but. It was anything but a model for students to emulate. Middle school and high school students engaging in debates follow the rules of the National Speech and Debate Association. The flaunting of the agreed-upon protocols were flagrantly flaunted by both of these pretenders to the highest office. They repeatedly demonstrated utter and complete disregard for time limits; identified topics; making up their own perspectives about truth; evading the questions and logical problem solving. The “debate” was laughable and the world witnessed again how pathetic this year’s  United States democratic process for deciding who becomes our “elected public servants” has become. The “look-alike” political parties’ “look-alike” candidate offerings are controlled by corporate and moneyed interests – not the interests of the nation’s citizens.

Sniping, defined as “to make malicious, underhand remarks or attacks”, is not a good trait for children to emulate; neither is flat-out lying.

Meetings you’ll want to put on your calendar for next week, include:

  • The better program on TV last night was the PBS Frontline production, “The Choice – 2016.” This commercial-free two-hour broadcast will be re-cast again on Monday, November 7, 10:00 pm on WITF. In this documentary, viewers get insite into each of the look-alike candidates: Where they were and came from. What groomed them. What motivates them and how they responded to circumstances and situations. This look at the past is a look at the future. Or you can click here to watch the program on your computer or device.
