America: The Revolution is Being Televised

It has been said that the revolution will not be televised. Recent events have shown us that the revolution is live.

    Not really sure what specifically you say is being protested.

    • Shay Cole

      The injustice is what is being protested.

    Shaquanda Cole, you are mentally twisted and sick before the Great God who created Heaven and Earth. Next time you gaze unto the stars of His kingdom; then know this, He’s looking back down wondering how He is going to save your bigoted soul.
    Sure there are way to many wrongs in this great nation.
    However, you try and show me a nation that can hold a candle to our overall love and mercy of US.

    • John Smith

      Lol, love and mercy? What love and mercy has our government ever shown to anyone? We have wars either going on or threatening to errupt on all fronts across the world… our nations has more people locked in cages than anywhere on earth.. our cops beat and kill people daily (improving slightly under pressure), kids are being removed homes for thing no one would bat an eye at 20 years ago. (If your 14 yr old has to walk a mile home from school for instance, you get deemed a an unfit parent… look it up).. people are being taxed to death, while the rich are being subsidized.. it goes on and on…

      Don’t confuse the mercy and love of the american people, with the american government.. they are to entirely different creatures…

        Still, you try and show me a nation that can hold a candle to our overall love and mercy of US.
        You avoided the question.

        Thank you for reading the article and commenting. Thank you for sharing your thoughts.

      Thank you for reading my article. I also appreciate your feedback about what I wrote and the topics mentioned. However, this is not a platform to bash me or my mental health. It is also unnecessary to disrespect my relationship with God. In the future, it would be wise to focus on the matters at hand. It is pointless to focus your energy tearing down someone you don’t even know. That does not solve the issues in this country. That does not reduce the school to prison pipeline nor the unwarranted killings of unarmed citizens. That does not provide universal health care to citizens nor does it promote growth. When you focus on the author of a piece instead of the facts in the piece, you are missing more than just the point.

        You bash a whole great nation with many people and yet it hurts you so very much when you get chided with what I believe is truth. What’s mentally ill about it? Well, it seems very insane that liberals drive the very same mentality that just crushed other nations like Venezuela. Your main stream liberal media can’t stand to comment of the demise of foolish nations who embark on the Marxist path. Europe and Cuba’s healthcare has melted down into a farce. You don’t create wealth by plundering those who create it. Sure, you will get a great following preaching the greatly over simplified and flawed beliefs of socialism or communism.
        You may even succeed with your great revolution. You will see that your great dream was only a dream indeed.
        It may take a few years for the economic collapse to cascade into a full disaster. But by the time you awake to see your folly strong evil leaders will have arisen to enslave the many. Happens every time. Yet you won’t look at the history of your revolutions. That’s the twisted and insane part.
        I am very happy to see (as a progressive) you even have a relationship with God. You will need that relation to save your very soul. Oh and by the way, I never condone greedy capitalist.
        It’s mindless greedy people that spark twisted socialism and communism. But, Marx is NOT the cure. Socialist revolution is only jumping from the frying pan into the fire.
        BTW: Many of US conservatives know Trump is insane. Your Hillary is a mess also. With China, Russia and North Korea and their nuclear saber rattling, and two evil choices for president I doubt either of us have much of a future anyhow.

        None of you has of yet shown me a nation that’s as generous and kind as the US.

        • Shay Cole

          You make a lot of assumptions about me and what I think, feel, believe, respect, etc. but ignore the facts. Once again, thank you for commenting and sharing your thoughts. I appreciate your interaction.

          • Obie Gibson

            OK Shay, so your not a socialist?
            Then please share with me what belief you have.

    It’s high time Americans began to stand up…or sit down…and rage against what this country has become. Police who kill minorities and impoverished whites with impunity. Gun laws so permissive that a person can buy an assault weapon and shoot up a movie theater, or a grade school. A place where 10,000 people die from gun violence every year. A place where Congressmen say they’re for protecting the rights of the unborn, but can’t pass legislation to combat the Zika virus. WE SHOULD ALL BE IN THE STREETS, SCREAMING FOR ATTENTION. Until our government fears its people, it will do nothing to help them.

      You are truly a special kind of stupid. The STRICTEST gun control in the country is in Chicago and DC, which are also the two highest murder rates in the country, or both in the top 5…. which is no coincidence. It’s 50 years of blue lefties policies (including so-called “gun control”) which has failed our large cities, and the minorities in them. Youtube “Number One with a Bullet” for actual facts.

      Thank you for reading the article and chiming in with your thoughts.

    Anyone who believes in the myth of black victimization (the greatest hoax of our generation, with ample evidence on Colin Flaherty’s YT channel), should have no problem taking the “Colin Kaepernick Challenge”, then reporting back here whether you won or not. Just go to youtube, type in “Colin Kaepernick Challenge Colin Flaherty” and watch the first video that comes up to find out how the challenge works.

    • Shay Cole

      Thank you for reading the article and commenting. Unfortunately, black people have been treated as property more than people. The facts that have been hidden are being illuminated now. It would be great to say that this was the past of the country and not the current state of the country.

    The question of whether Socialism can be an effective economic system was famously raised when Margaret Thatcher said of the British Labor Party, “I think they’ve made the biggest financial mess that any government’s ever made in this country for a very long time, and Socialist governments traditionally do make a financial mess. They always run out of other people’s money. It’s quite a characteristic of them. They then start to nationalize everything.”

    There are dire reports of people waiting in supermarket lines all day, only to discover that expected food deliveries never arrived and the shelves are empty.

    There are horrific reports of desperate people slaughtering zoo animals to provide their only meal of the day. Even household pets are targeted as a much-needed source for food.

    President Maduro is doubling down on the proven failed policies and philosophies of “Bolivarian Socialism,” while diverting attention away from the crisis — pointing fingers at so-called “enemies” of Venezuela such as the United States, Saudi Arabia and others.

    A dozen eggs was last reported to cost $150, and the International Monetary Fund “predicts that inflation in Venezuela will hit 720% this year.

      Well at least everything is fair now!
      Everyone will get to be equally impoverished.
      Of course, except the leading Marxist elite.
      The Marxist will have very special privileges.

        For many Venezuelans, by every economic, social and political measure, their nation is unraveling at breakneck speed.
        Severe shortages of food, clean water, electricity, medicines and hospital supplies punctuate a dire scenario of crime-ridden streets in the impoverished neighborhoods of this nearly failed OPEC state, which at one time claimed to be the most prosperous nation in Latin America.

        Today, a once comfortable middle-class Venezuelan father is scrambling desperately to find his family’s next meal – sometimes hunting through garbage for salvageable food. The unfortunate 75% majority of Venezuelans already suffering extreme poverty are reportedly verging on starvation.

        Darkness is falling on Hugo Chavez’s once-famous “Bolivarian revolution” that some policy experts, only a short time ago, thought would never end.
