A SELECTION OF A FEW CURRENT EVENTS TOPICS :
The US Presidential "debates"
- The three ring circus, otherwise known as the U.S. Presidential election continues with more grotesque entertainment starting Monday, or the "Presidential Debates." We already know that these so-called debates are rigged with no allowance for third party candidates to participate, only the duopolists can participate. Here is an article by Bill Moyers on the other travesties of our illusionary "Democracy". I'm putting up the redirected article because of the important commentary and responses following this report:

Meanwhile, I will be listing the executions-violence in our region since September 15th. We were out to dinner last night and met some really interesting gringos; she mentioned she had read on Facebook how teens in Rosarito were being kidnapped. I have not read or heard this before at all, so I'm going to do some digging on this subject. Oh shite, guess I'll have to join Facebook, yuck.
