There is a big discussion going on whether FOX News should have 17 GOP presidential candidates participating in the first debate. But there is no debate on whether we should have more than 2 candidates debating in the Fall next year. That’s how totally brainwashed the two-party system has us.
I challenge the corporate press to do their duty and ask this question.
Btw, guess who decides who will be participating in the debates next year.
Why do people run for president even though they cannot win? And how should we the voters feel about them? A psychological investigation featuring George Pataki.

Jailed journalist and activist Barrett Brown has received 30 more days of solitary confinement in the prison, where he is serving a five-year and three-month sentence issued against him in January.
Brown, who had been put in “the hole” at the Fort Worth Correctional Institution previously, was put in solitary confinement in late June after staff “singled” him out “for a search” of his locker and “found a cup of homemade alcohol.”

The murder of Sam DuBose and False arrest of Sandra Bland are only the latest examples of how cameras fail prevent the innocent from being terrorized by law enforcement. So why do the politicians offer this as the only solution to rampant police brutality in America? Maybe they are not interested in stopping it. Or maybe they are afraid of losing support from the police unions. The same way both parties are afraid of the NRA.
This is why we shouldn’t have Bill Clinton in the White House again. This go around with too much time on his hand.

Jon Stewart slipped unnoticed into the White House in the midst of the October 2011 budget fight, summoned to an Oval Office coffee with President Barack Obama that he jokingly told his escort felt like being called into the principal’s office.In February 2014, Obama again requested Stewart make the trip from Manhattan to the White House, this time for a midmorning visit hours before the president would go before television cameras to warn Russia that “there will be costs” if it made any further military intervention in Ukraine.To engage privately with the president in his inner sanctum at two sensitive moments — previously unreported meetings that are listed in the White House visitor logs and confirmed to POLITICO by three former Obama aides — speaks volumes about Stewart and his reach, which goes well beyond the million or so viewers who tune in to “The Daily Show” on most weeknights.
