Most Americans rely on the news to keep them informed, even when most Americans know that the news is only half-right, and politically skewed. It is therefore necessary to think beyond the media and use your own mind to put the pieces together and come up with interesting thoughts based on common sense and the wisdom one develops over the years. Below are a series of headlines you did not read in the news but perhaps you should be thinking on:Potential Opportunity to Blitz Over Boarder Shipment Inspections to Stop Drug DealersWith International Freight at a standstill, the number of shipments coming through our ports and over our borders is so low, that we have the chance to search through many more of the containers and trucks entering our nation. Thus, if we put forth maximum effort now, we should be able to make a huge dent in the drug traffic into our nation. We could use this opportunity to make a huge dent in the war on drugs.Sully Sullenberger for President!We all know that politics is such a horrible way to run such a great country, it seems too many of our decision are based in silly non-sense and favoritism. Surely, we can get better people in politics if we are smart enough to see past it all. What about Sully Sullenberger for President, that makes sense, and what was the Book about that he could not return to the library because of the plane crash? “Professional Ethics” I mean this is incredible, maybe we should send a copy to all of our politicians?If and When The Obama Presidency Fails It Will Set Back The Black Movement Decades?Having an African American President is proof positive that anyone can succeed in America. Still, just because one gets elected does not mean they will succeed at the job. Few Presidents have gone down in history as being great. Our Current President, Barrack Obama, sure has a lot to live up to. Have we considered all the good this has done for individual rights in this country, especially for African Americans, surely we have. But what about the flip side, what if Barrack Obama fails miserably as president, will it have the reverse affect for the African American community?Buy Furniture Here – No Payments Until 2013?The advertising at the furniture store read, no payments for 4-years, but isn’t it this very nonsense that got us into the credit borrowing mess in the first place? How irresponsible can that be for a company to offer such enticing terms of payment and credit after all we’ve been through? Why is no one outraged by such commercials on TV?Shouldn’t we be discussing all these issues along with the news? Why allow the mass media to manipulate your mind. You must always read between the lines and think on it.
