Comments on "Commoner"

We have noticed a paucity of comments on this blog and our other blogs (all of which can be seen on the profile page; the link is directly under the "About Me" paragraph), but we welcome comments, which on most or all of our blogs must be approved for posting. Of course, you don't have to agree with "Commons's" point of view about matters, but all comments should be civil and relate to the subject at hand. We hope to see an increase in the number of comments in the coming weeks. Thank you for reading "Commoner." Please, help us with our political research activities by sending $10 to the address below:

Democracy's Biggest Hurdle

The powerful corporate mainstream news media (CMNM) in the United States of America remains democracy's biggest hurdle. The CMNM has continually undermined democracy and representative government by their one-sided presentation of the news and political matters, outright propaganda, and dubious distortions or omissions of facts. Elections in America have been unfair for a very long time, because the CMNM only covers candidates that are useful to them, or they misrepresent certain candidates they don't like through various methods of bias and obfuscation.

Elections in the U.S. are, by and large, controlled by the corporate behemoth, which uses the CMNM for their practically exclusive electoral ratification processes. Alternative political parties and independent candidates have almost no chance against the status quo-admiring CMNM unless the number of people supporting alternative parties becomes considerably larger. Elections laws are uniformly unfair against poor candida…

Blog News XXVII

Former president Jimmy Carter reportedly apologized to the Jewish community for any insensitivity that he has displayed in the past. Carter has made a plea for forgiveness through a special prayer.

Mark Greene has posted a poem on "The Political Playwright," in which he wrote years ago, in honor of the memory of Anne Frank (1929 - 1945), one of the great memoirists of the 20th century and all time, and a victim of the Holocaust.

Mark (writing under his first name, Clifford) wrote his first publication ever in a Nov., 1975 edition of the Lincoln Star (Lincoln, Nebraska) in which he tried to come to a better understanding of the complications of the Middle East.

Turn: http://commonturnstile.blogspot.com (can also be seen by clicking on the title link, above): the chairman of the Party of Commons neither bows nor curtsys to glorified politicians turned self-proclaimed or implied "leaders" of a race of people.

Uncle Sam Taunts "Commons"

Once again, "Commons" is having difficulty using our electronic means of communication, spies taunting "Commons" are coming out of the woodwork, and Authoritarian America, with the corporate behemoth at its side, is increasingly gaining power in the halls of government at the expense of commoners everywhere. Help "Commons" in our bid to bring more commoners into politics, especially as elected legislators and representatives (through our candidate training programs and overall electoral strategies). The chairman's illness this season has slowed our momentum, but you can help us get back into stride with a contribution of fifty dollars. Please, send $50 to the Party of Commons, P.O. Box 612, Bellevue, WA 98009.

Blog News XXV

The United States Senate gives a stick to the poor.

Chairman Mark Greene has been ill, but he is hoping to make a full recovery, soon. Speaking of illness, the Senate version of the health care reform legislation is utterly ridiculous, and a feather in the cap for the dubious private health care insurers that caused the health care crisis in the first place. "Commons" supports the House version that has a public option, but the Senate version is deplorable. If the Senate version is the best that this "Democratic"-controlled Congress can come up with, then we are better off with no bill whatsoever. The Senate bill would only empower the already too powerful private health insurers. This bill is a sham that would either force the uninsured onto the private insurers' rolls or face penalties (a stick for the poor). We have been saying all along that the Republicans and the Democrats are two sides of the same coin, the Senate version of the health care bill proves…
