"In Pravda, there is no Izvestia. In Izvestia, there is no Pravda." Russian proverb

Pravda (Truth) and Izvestia (News) were the two government-controlled news services in the Soviet Union. In 21st century America, we have more news services, but most of them are, similarly, obedient to the current administration, turning the heads of uninformed voters. Instead of holding the government accountable, they unashamedly advocate for it, while demonizing everyone who dares to object!

"What difference does it make?" -- Hillary Clinton

No matter how egregious the behavior of liberals/progressives, the news media, entertainment media, academia, etc., give them a pass, gloss it over, dismiss it, etc.

Any of these outrages, if committed by conservatives, would have touched off a fire storm of righteous liberal indignation. Not prosecuting the New Black Panther voter intimidation in Philadelphia, Fast and Furious, and Benghazi are just a few examples.

Current administration policy, if unabated, will lead to America's fiscal collapse, according to an under-reported federal study. Al Gore has, surprisingly, drawn some fire from liberals over his hypocritically selling his network to al Jazerra.

When this economic train wreck comes, they will have been complicit in bringing it about. How, then, will they justify their current slavish advocacy of the calumnies in the Obama administration?

Unemployment is terrible, the national debt is about to destroy us, foreign policy is a disaster, Obamacare is a nightmare, and taxes are going up! When people complain, I am wont to say: "You voted for them!"

Time is short.

Wake up!

1989 -- 25 years ago: When the new Moline High School was built in 1958, along with it were plans to construct a football field in the bowl near 34th Street on the campus. Wednesday afternoon, more than 30 years later, the Moline Board of Education Athletic Board sent the ball rolling toward the possible construction of that field by asking superintendent Richard Hennigan to take to the board of education a proposal to hire a consultant.
