60 Minutes Man

I first met Ed Bradley while I was a journalism student in graduate school. I interviewed him for my thesis on Minorities in the Media.

In 1976,  Ed Bradley became CBS' first-ever African-American correspondent to the White House. The last time I saw Ed before he died, he was standing on the corner of 66 Street and Broadway. I had finished lecturing my journalism students at NYIT. We spoke briefly, but he never said anything about his leukemia. Ed was friendly each and every time we spoke.

New Yorkers are number one, the most Inconsiderate Rude and Ill-mannered people in the USA.

Here’s one for the bearing it all files. Attention shoppers, there’s barely time to exit the store safely because there’s a bear over there.

The Big Lie From A Small Brain

What can we expect from a liar who worships Hitler, pays others to take his tests, wears cakes of makeup, and fake hair and small???

The big lie or große Lüge is a gross distortion or misrepresentation of the truth, used especially as a propaganda technique. The Nazi Germany expression was coined by Adolf Hitler when he dictated his 1925 book, Mein Kampf, to describe the use of a lie so colossal that no one would believe that someone could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously.

Neanderthals are believed to be an extinct species or perhaps a subspecies of archaic humans who once lived on earth until about 40K years ago, according to published data from Wikipedia.

They reportedly became extinct due to assimilation into the modern human genome, great climatic change, disease, or perhaps a strange combination of all of the factors listed.

Species: neanderthalensis

The Trump Virus

Submitted by ub on Mon, 03/01/2021 - 08:59

After listening to free-flowing #CPAC Oral diarrhea more Americans are asking to be inoculated for the Trump virus. #TrumpVirus

More than one-half million have died in the USA since Trump lied and continue to spread misinformation about the deadly Pandemic. Does he have any shame, integrity, morals, decency or respect for American lives? CPAC was a super-spreader event with the exponential contagious infections from attendees flying or driving back to their cities and states, and most likely exposing more folks to a dangerous variant of the virus.

Truth is being in accord with facts that represent reality.

Honesty is the best policy. Spread the word to all who will listen as well as those who may not at first, but keep trying anyway.

Truth is usually held to be the opposite of falsity. The concept of truth is discussed and debated in various contexts, including philosophy, art, theology.
