The Monroe Times: Letters to the Editor Column: Russia Must Have an Open Media to Solve Its Problems

The following is an article I had published in my local paper, The Monroe Times, on June 5, 2017 in the “Letters to the Editor” column on page A4 titled “Russia Must Have an Open Media to Solve Its Problems” and I quote:

“We have Republican Donald Trump as president.  He’s never run for political office before because he was a businessman.  We’re trying to figure out if a former businessman, who went bankrupt six times, can be a successful president.  President Trump really hasn’t done much in his first 100 days in getting his campaign promises into law, concerning how he’s going to make America great again.

Seems like his number one complaint is about the media, which he is trying to replace by using Twitter and his own undocumented comments, which have gotten him in trouble when he fired FBI Director James Comey, over the issue of how involved was President Trump with Russians during the election, involving WikiLeaks and Julian Assange.  This mess confused both political parties that the Justice Department appointed a special prosecutor, Robert Mueller, to solve the problem if President Trump was colluding with the Russians and having private meetings with them in the Oval office without the press being allowed in.

This is something I don’t ever remember Democrat President Barack Obama doing.  In fact, President Obama and Sec of State Hillary Clinton were critical of the way communist Russia was being run, particularly when they invaded Ukraine.

All of these problems started way back when World War II was ending and they had many conferences, with Yalta being the biggest, letting Russia control the countries of Eastern Europe that they conquered during the war.  Since the communist system doesn’t have contested elections like Europe, a socialist continent and the United States, they are always going to have more turmoil than a democracy has.

Can you imagine Russia running something like C-Span, where all our important meetings are televised?  And phone calls are being taken for three hours every morning rotating Republicans, Democrats and Independents.   Communism has to improve if it is ever going to catch up to the United States or a Socialist country.

You’d come to that same conclusion if you read the book “THE MAN WITHOUT A FACE; The Unlikely Rise of Vladimir Putin” by Masha Gessen.  Communist Russia, just like North Korea, haven’t kept up with the demands of the people and a standard of living.    I believe the big problem is that communists don’t let the farmers own the land creating food shortages.

They must have an open media if they are ever going to solve their problems.”

(REPUBLICAN PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP CAN KEEP TWEETING HIS FAKE NEWS ON TWITTER BUT THINGS ARE APT TO CHANGE IN THE NEXT FEW DAYS AFTER FORMER FBI DIRECTOR JAMES COMEY TESTIFIES IN FRONT OF A CONGRESSIONAL COMMITTEE HOPEFULLY, PUBLICLY.  WE’LL KNOW THEN HOPEFULLY, JUST HOW DEEP PRES TRUMP WAS INVOLVED WITH COMMUNIST RUSSIA, PARTICULARLY IN THE 2016 ELECTION WHERE THE VOTING MACHINES MIGHT HAVE EVEN BEEN TAMPERED WITH, ACCORDING TO REALITY WINNER AS REPORTED ON THE ABC EVENING NEWS ON JUNE 6, 2017 WITH PIERRE THOMAS REPORTING.

About tim074

I'm a retired dairy farmer that was a member of the National Farmer's Organization (NFO). Before going farming, I spent 4 years in the United States Air Force where I saved up enough money to get my down payment to go farming. I also enjoy writing and reading biographies and I write about myself as well as articles and excerpts I find interesting. I'm specifically interested in finances, particularly in the banking industry because if it wasn't for help from my local Community Bank, I never could have started farming which I was successful at. So, I'm real interested in the Small Business Administration and I know they are the ones creating jobs. I have been a member of Common Cause and am now a member of Public Citizen as well as AARP. I have, in the past, written over 150 articles on the Obama Blog (my.barackobama.com) and I'd like to tie these two sites together. I'm also on Twitter, MySpace and Facebook and find these outlets terrifically interesting particularly what many of these people did concerning the uprising in the Arab world. I believe this is a smaller world than we think it is and my goal is to try to bring people together to live in peace because management needs labor like labor needs management. Up to now, that hasn't been so easy to find.
