GOP 2016: Fiorina Is Also Carnival Barking; The Tent Offers Horrors

Must watch MSNBC segment below!

MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell, The Last Word, broadcast a segment last night that for some reason the networks webpage developed decided not to post it to the website. Rather than post the most worthy piece from last night's show, someone at MSNBC'S website team decided to run a silly no and ignorant segment about a fisherman harassing a Mola Mola (Sun Fish) warranted a web spot. 

The downfall of MSNBC is seriously ugly and growing more inane and correspondingly uglier.  

The segment of which I speak is capture below as part of the full 43 minute episode. The salient segment starts at the 14:30 mark and ends at the 19:10 mark. what you will find between those segment marks is a well developed presentation about Carly Fiorina's involvement in what has been reported as a $4 billion dollar hit to US tax payers.

On a day when the CEO of Volkswagen resigned after revelations of an wide spread international scheme to hide actual exhausts readouts from its diesel engine cars, we are reminded of the fallacy of the CEO as a steward of "Corporations are people, my friend." These people are greedy corporate rock-stars who in many cases posses far less business acumen than the guy or girl serving you that Egg McMuffin. 

Carly Fiorina at the 14:03 to 19:10 marks

The Daily Beast offers more details

Fiorina is a political mirage. She offers no record of accomplishment. The record she offers includes typical "vulture capitalist" tendencies. As is always the case with the"vulture capitalist" the middle class becomes the platform for personal riches while offering millions as sacrifice towards supporting corporate strategy. Her record is available review; it amazes some actually feel she is worthy of the GOP nomination.

Five years ago a weakened congressional candidate, Barbara Boxer, we poised to possible lose her congressional seat to Fiorina (behind millions personal dollars spent by Fiorina) until this ad ran just before the 2010 elections. 

Despite the possibility of a serious "ax-to-grind", I am going to offer a link to a piece in which her former husband offers additional perspective.

(UPDATE From TYT) Did Someone Say Grand Jury? How About Prosecutor Malfeanse?


Regardless of your thoughts on the guilt or innocence of Darren Wilson, you would have to live the life of a self-centered ideologue to ignore the intricacies the Ferguson Grand Jury. You might be one who cares nothing about Justice for others as long as justice serves you well. Moreover, you may not even care about justice and actually place the fairness and balance of justice in display jars for retrieval at your convenience. 

When the system fails anyone, the system fails us all.  

As we move away from the Darren Wilson Grand jury proceedings, let's observe as details of the process devolve or fizzle into the latest national fiasco agaisnt justice.

MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell does it like few others. How about a segment of The Last Word.  You will find the 10 plus minutes as educational and relevant as any you may have sat through in years. If we cannot expend time for justice, we deny ourselves a great society.

There is something to be said about deeper cognitive thought accompanied by basic discernible language and communication messages that ensue. The process feeds the brain and insults against those who fall shy of living life with regard to fairness and equality for all. The O'Donnell segment for some should provide an epiphany comparable to something observed within the past year and will never forget.

Watch the figurative epiphany.
