A New Low for the American People Seems Inevitable

by Grim17 on 01-09-16 at 07:10 PM
Looking back to 2008, although the election of Barack Obama was a disappointment to me personally, from a national standpoint it was something for the American to be proud of. We finally proved something that for many years prior, I already knew to be true... that as a nation, racial prejudice no longer held a prominent role within our society as it had just 50 years ago, and had become nothing more than a societal anomaly.

His election to the presidency wasn't marred by racial protests,

Outsourcing and the Decline of the American Workforce

by Grim17 on 06-03-15 at 10:23 PM
This is from a post I made in response to a NY Times article about Disney laying off workers in Florida.

There are many reasons in my opinion for this kind of thing happening, and happening more frequently. First off, America can no longer compete with foreign companies and foreign workforces. The cost of doing business in the US is high compared to other nations. Corporate taxes are the highest in the world, wages are among the highest in the world and the amount of costly regulations

The Politics of Racial Division: A dangerous strategy built on lies

by Grim17 on 12-29-14 at 02:21 AM

This is a segment from Mellisa Harris-Perry on MSNBC back in August. The segment is centered on white racism against black people. More specifically, on her perceived epidemic of racist white cops shooting and/or killing unarmed black men. She gave 9 examples over the last 10 years where an unarmed black man was killed at the hands of white cops. Here is the segment, and my analysis follows:

The tragic tale of a stolen legacy

by Grim17 on 05-26-14 at 03:19 PM
Back in 2008 when Obama was elected president, it was different for me as a conservative and a republican voter, than it normally is when a democrat gets elected who I really opposed. What made it different was that instead of just the pure disappointment and that gut feeling that American voters had made a mistake, which is the norm, I acknowledged that there were some very positive things that could come out of this that would be beneficial for the country as a whole, but most importantly for

When the need to attack becomes more important than the truth

by Grim17 on 05-10-14 at 09:56 AM
In the last week, I have been astounded at the number of phony threads that have popped up in the "bias in the media" forum created purely to attack political adversaries. I'm talking about threads centered around manipulating and twisting the facts, or were simply based on flat out lies.

When did people become so wrapped up in politics and so desperate to discredit those who don't see eye to eye with them, that the truth became optional? Here's a few examples of what I'm
