FOUNDERS QUOTE


“During the course of administration, and in order to disturb it, the artillery of the press has been levelled against us, charged with whatsoever its licentiousness could devise or dare. These abuses of an institution so important to freedom and science are deeply to be regretted, inasmuch as they tend to lessen its usefulness and to sap its safety.” —Thomas Jefferson, Second Inaugural Address, 1805

About todaysawareness

The site, “beawaretoday”, is a unique prospective, as if looking down from 30,000 feet at the world of Local, National, and Foreign Affairs. Most people go through each day only seeing what is immediately affecting them and most only have a vision for dealing with their issues of only about 5 to 7 days. With, “beawaretoday”, we look at what is happening around the World and what I call the Domino Effect, to project problems that are forthcoming so that people can plan ahead to deal with them vs. dealing the alternative. I created the blog, “beawaretoday” so that I could share a forum to discuss, Current, Domestic and Foreign Affairs that affect us all through the Domino effect. I encourage you to join the Discussions or at least enjoy reading the content. Thank you, Tom Campbell

    Using founder’s quotes are nice, but rarely taken in context. Jefferson himself did EXACTLY the same thing when he was younger. BUT- a FREE press, unencumbered with a political bias or monopoly is the BASE on which Democracy lives. Today there is no free press that doesn’t bow to the corporate interests, which are invariably against their workers and the middle class. With the “liberal” station daily complaining about “liberals” and refusing to report ANYTHING accomplished by them, allowing know liars, disgraced politicians, and con-artists to be heard as though anyone should ever listen to them again. Except to the extent that bin Laden was killed, nothing good has been accomplished by this administration. The FAR-Right media OUTRIGHT funds, creates PACS, & directs political parties. Far-Right politicians and their rabid followers demand an overthrow of ANY government that is run by ANY liberals or progressives. Running on smaller, constitutional, and less intrusive government, they immediately write laws forcing MORE government rules, MORE intrusive(into all women’s wombs), and attack the very fabric of Freedom, unions.(Ronald Reagan) Democracy is on it’s last legs in this country. It is dying out amid a loudspeaker chorus by the anti-worker/middle-class “media” hyping the cheers from the small and uneducated flocks of the con-artists, naturally creating the impression that the WHOLE country is with them! The backlash now is of the middle class against R governors and other politicians trying to destroy Unions, Medicare, Social Security, who “ran” on ETHICS, MORALITY, DECENCY, & smaller government, NOT destroying unions, the very FABRIC of people trying to protecting each other WITHOUT government intervention, Medicare, and Soc Sec. Will this be the end of Republicans? Of course not, they bow to the corporate interests and passed laws making them too big to fail and too big to punish, while refusing to investigate OR penalize them when they are caught. The Golden Rule, they that have ALL THE GOLD, make the rules.

    When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I
    get four emails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove people from that service?
    Thanks a lot!
