Fake News

[link:http://money.cnn.com/2016/10/30/media/facebook-fake-news-plague/index.html|[link:http://money.cnn.com/2016/10/30/media/facebook-fake-news-plague/index.html|

Rightwing news sites are more likely to report fake news. The the Fake stories hurt the people who believe them and share them. The fakes stories reinforce the beliefs of mainly conservative voters and keep them in a bubble away from the truth. The stories reinforce the beliefs that people want to believe about the opposite party.
This pretty much is true from what I see at work and the stupids comments they make. They vett zero facts they spout. Google, snopes and hoax would clear up some but they do not even do that. There needs to be way to stop fake news sites. The one I see alot is NewsMax.

Bigger than Watergate?

Only story bigger than Watergate going on is not being covered. Trump asking Russia to hack the DNC and Hillary campaign. His aide tied to Russia. Russia interfering with an election in the United States and no arrests. Trump's Russia influenced ex-campaign manager working for CNN. This last email is a stretch. The investigation of Anthony Wiener communications to his soon to be ex wife. Huma is a woman wronged. Wiener behavior is like Trump's. CNN and the politician from Utah need to be investigated for collusion.

Contributions

There needs to be a change in the way candidates get money to run for office. I heard this on Npr tonight on the way home. One of the leaked emails was about how Coke paid paid money to Clinton campaign. Hillary was for the tax on soda in Philadelphia. A representative of Coke emailed Clinton and pretty much made it clear that they expected her to vote in their favor. If these companies pay lots of money why would they listen to their constituents.

Strickland

This was in a local paper. What in the world were they waiting on. I had heard on NPR while back that democrats were not going to spend more money for ads. Portman is a nightmare. He didn't serve out his time in Bush cabinet, personal business. While he was GAO found out that blue collar workers die before they can collect social security and their pensions. So instead of increasing health insurance or safety he tells companies they can just save the money because the workers are just going to die anyway. Strickland worked to keep people in this area working and tried to bring jobs here.

Media coverage

Trump has had almost all of the coverage by the news. CNN has apologized for covering him so much waiting to see what nonsense would come spewing form his mouth. Hillary has just been sitting back and letting him ruin his chances with his rants. The media is siding with Hillary is what his supporters say but I think that the media has pushed Trump and he is where he is at is because of the media. He was using the news coverage as free advertising.

Gas Station at Nashville

Just read an article on Huffington post about a Shell gas station that has had horrible messages on it about Hillary and Obama. The gas station's address is 5106 Old Hickory Boulevard, Nashville, TN. The owner Bradford Lewis, of Lewis Country Store says he has freedom of speech. Shell international might not like thier brand associated with his speech. www.shell.us/about-us/contact-shell/service-station-feedback.html

Hillary might lose Ohio

Cnn money had article about Hillary bad mouthing coal as the reason she will lose Ohio. I have heard the same at work. But i will say these are some of the same guys that said they would quit their job if a woman was made the supervisor. The same guys who belong to a union and vote republican then complain about working conditions. Pike and Scioto are republican counties especially when they gerrymandered the area to be weighted down with Cincinnati. I think Hillary has just as much chance to take the state as Obama did. Also just as a side lots of Pike and Scioto county residents think that southern Ohio was the south and were confederates.

Today at work

I thought they couldn't beat the Bush family are communists. I had to endure the democrats made the 14th, 15th, 16th amendments. They then went on to say those plus the 19th amendments need to be abolished. And that welfare is democrat and it is used just to keep the slaves, slaves and create an elite class. That the republicans believe in hard work and everything must be earned. Let me tell you how these little s***s earned their jobs. Everyone of them has relatives who work there. Each of them were given opportunities that others around the area have not. The place hires only republicans because they are Americans and everyone else is not. They talk about democrats being socialist while they spout national socialist ideas. What gets me is they watch Star Wars, Star Trek, Marvel and totally do not get that they are evil empire, the cyborgs and Hydra. Sorry but I got to get this out of my system.

At work

Today at work it would have been funny if this was not so dangerous. I work with neo cons I think they all would be called alt right. They were worked up over the debate. They think Don won. They were all saying Hillary needs to be in jail. They then mentioned that the Bush's are not supporting Trump. Then they said something so inane I couldn't believe it. One of them said the bush's were a bunch of communists. That W's administration was way to communist or socialistic. I always write down some stupid comment of the day, like a few weeks ago it was said that they wanted Trump to just be a dictator because it would just be easier. I think it will take something to beat the one from today.
