Some Bay Area names are being mentioned as possibilities for cabinet posts as Obama shuffles his advisors for his second term.
Dan: Behind it all, and what this REALLY comes down to, is protecting the MAJORITY of the super-wealthy who REALLY control the lion's share of business and government. They want you to think you are making an informed decision. How can you make an informed decision if the FEW major media companies, that control 80 to 90% of the market, make their money by getting you to WATCH THE COMMERCIALS. THEY ARE TRULY answerable to their sponsors, NOT you, the viewer! Would you ever watch a network that proclaims that they provide "the fair & balanced" view of the news..? Yet millions upon millions do every day. As long as they can keep us arguing with each other, all that the MAJORITY of the super-wealthy have to do is sit back and roll in the dough. This is NOT as MOST the Founders of this great land envisioned it! If "We" were to recognize this reality and stop fighting with each other, "We" would be able to make real change - a country that doesn't give preferential treatment to the super wealthy... but rather treats all of it's citizens fairly and justly. President Lincoln said this about 150 years ago: (although there's much disagreement if he really said it, however it still rings true.) "I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country. …corporations have been enthroned and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until all wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed." MISSION ACCOMPLISHED. I give you Donald Trump. A man who has called illegal immigrants, 'rapists and murderers,' has called women terribly degrading names, (if my mother was alive she would kick him so hard) and has challenged a Judge's ruling SIMPLY because he is of 'Mexican' decent. Not to mention making fun of a person's disability. (What kind of person are you?!) "We" are Americans, Donald! We don't do that! (except in your hate-filled world that your followers support) There is so much more but you get the general idea of what Trump's TRUE character is. Like I said, mission accomplished. (thank God for PBS... and yet even they are SLOWLY getting polluted by the tremendous power of the large corporations)
