POLITICIANS VS MEDIA

Problem

Some politicians who do not like the press coverage they receive resort to publishing their own spin on their points of views, instead of news. Its called propaganda and they attempt to disguise it as news.

Taxpayer-funded news services intended to provide pr-written news stories for public consumption, as well as underhanded attempting to break news about various administration comings and goings are contrary to a free press.

Truth and Honesty

Idea

There is nothing more important than inner beauty, integrity and honesty.

Let everyone be sincere to develop in ourselves that quality, so the people of the world to share.

No matter how plain looking you may think any person is, once we have the opportunity to look into their eyes and if we see truth and honesty written across their face, they will be the most beautiful person you will ever see.
