Cain, Perry Media Frenzies Show Bias By The Gored
Written by 

bimbo-pizza2This past week, there have been two major media frenzies.

The first has focused upon the alleged sexual harassment charges made against Republican Presidential candidate Herman Cain, who has spent much time lately denying the claims.

 

Without opining on the merits of any of the claims, I find it interesting to compare those denials with those from another scandal.

Interestingly, many who defended Clinton regarding the Lewinsky scandal are in the front of the lines attacking Cain.  Not surprisingly, many of those who were leading the accusing charges are now angry that allegations are even being made against Cain.

The other frenzy, of course, focuses upon the most publicized “oops” in American Presidential Politics in recent history.

Rick Perry might not have a career as our next U.S. President, in part because of his major mental lapse which appears to have torpedoed his already drowning campaign.

However, many of those who are laughing endlessly at Perry’s gaffe have been totally quiet about one of the most public blunders in television history--one which has, by comparison, received very little media attention.

Which says volumes about the relevance of that old expression  that “it depends upon whose ox is being GOREd”

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

joe mikaAs Donald Trump faces the top world leaders this week, including a face-time with Vladimir Putin, and as his healthcare proposals face an uphill climb, his poll numbers for how the nation views him could be better.

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
