"Seriously though, the U.S. once voted for a Catholic president (JFK)... once!"
One JFK was a very bad Catholic (the thing with Marylin Monroe). For some reason many people think that if a Catholic becomes President, the US will become a vassal of the Pope. Now if these people realized that the Pope is not the political figure he once was, they would understand that the Pope is a spiritual leader.
" It says nothing to the fact that as previously stated, blacks with higher degree of education are less likely to get hired than white high school drop outs."
Why would a higher educated person want work in job where a high school dropout would get the same job?
If want to put money into the economy you let the consumer do it not the government. By letting people spend their money on what they want or need is the best way to stimulate the economy not a trillion dollar plan that will take 2 years to work. The economy will get fixed quicker with the consumer rather than with the government.
"To simplify the problem I think democracy is starting to break down. Journalism is the backbone of a democracy. Without an informed public it ceases to exist."
Are you saying that the majority of the media is biased?
"At least with a strong central government, the people have control over it democratically. Right now our government is in a stranglehold by big business over which we have no control."
The government can not handle it. All the people who know what they are doing are in the big buisnesses and not in the government.
" We need to demand that congress take steps to fix the media like bringing back the Fairness Doctrine and breaking up the monopoly on news."
And sacrifice free speech?
