Media Blues

No place for truth only self serving sentiments colored with so much bias time runs out for anything of substance

Journalist have long left behind reporting the news in order to keep up with the most scandalous of affairs

So many pivotal events in need of airtime, investigation and proper discussion being buried under a pile of distractions meant to increase ad revenue not awareness

Showmen never reflect on their own negligence but rather place the blame exclusively on the viewers

There’s no time for honesty when seeking gossip, ratings & Ad money

Greed is always in charge & on full display during the 24 hour cycle of chaos

Artificial outrage has replaced journalist working to investigate any story unless it advances their self interest

Opinions are golden and truth is silenced

No longer a place to be informed, educated or enlightened; just an opportunity for an hourly cage match to run on a 24 hour loop highlighted by  gross commentary

the money shot is always the same; a split screen of two angry people fighting over anything controversial with a smiling middle man whose eyes have been replaced by dollar signs

After hitting the self destruct mode the news is a shadow of its former self

A relic pretending to still be relevant by transforming into whatever and whoever is popular for the day

A place viewers can only rely on to observe a dilapidated circus

And oh what a foul show it has become!








Tick Tock

As another election cycle barrels through our landscape the question remains the same

What will change for we the people after the powers that be crown a new winner?

Stagnation rules in DC while main street crumbles

Communities once raised up are now dust bowl towns; suffocated by those who promised to be agents of change

From rural America to the big apple; no city is immune from the disease of government apathy

Every election cycle we the people hear the same slogans and promises from the same characters of elites

The names and faces may change but the outcome is inevitable fixed

And even though nothing changes on the ground, the politicians kept getting paid even when they fail

As if those in charge purposely withhold progress to keep everyone in their place

Their continued failures become the back drop to our lives

How long does it take for “the smartest people in the room” to get the job done?

Politicians railing that they have spent a lifetime in office often have little substance to show for decades of begging for votes and donations

How long does progress take?

What do we the people have to show for our votes?

what has DC done for us?

While their wealth and political ambitions grow we the people sit fixed in their rear view mirror

The future of our democracy appears grim as those in power are exclusively motivated by the all mighty dollar

But fear not

there is hope and it doesn’t/can’t rest in the hands of self obsessed politicians

it rest in all of us

Everyday in every community our fellow citizens are changing the world by making their communities a better place to call home

because change starts at home & on main street first

so before you loose all hope that things can’t get better remember your neighbors; the great citizens who wake up everyday to selflessly commit the greatest act of political change

making communities healthier & safer one act of kindness at a time

my thanks to all of my fellow citizens who are changing the world by changing our streets

Be well all m.m.
