This past year or so has been a hairy time for me with 2 cancer surgeries and a couple broken bones. My arm is currently in a purple cast. I had to let things ride for awhile. Hopefully some of you are still out there.
The tone of this blog will expand because I’m not writing on my other blog and stopped paying the premium fee for the website. I got swallowed up with too much I could reasonably do in a day. It will take awhile to catch up with the changes in my life this year. I’m not going to go into those details in this post. There are more important things to talk about than my life. I want to concentrate on what you can do to better educate yourself and change the way many of you get your news in the United States of America. If you are outside this country you are probably better informed than a large percentage of American citizens .
When I see what people write, and what they think is the truth, it is very disturbing to see the amount of kool-aid they drink every day that keeps them in a zombie frame of mind. Many people want the truth but don’t know where to find it so they go to the same old places day in and day out.
This post is also a reprint of a post I just wrote on my personal Facebook page. That page is very political most of the time. You can find it if you want by searching my name Sonni Quick. I have other pages of various interests. Criminal Justice, Improv Piano ( which has my recordings) and my store page, Watch and Whirl Shop ( where I sell mainly vintage jewelry and sterling silver)
Some of you know I don’t own a TV and haven’t in decades. The bullshit, ads and rising costs for cable turned me off. I am much better informed than many of you because I go to many places online that aren’t owned by a political party. Mainstream news only tells you what they want you to know. I then compare what I learn to what the average American doesn’t learn and it is easy to see how they lead people around by the nose. If this weren’t true then Trump would have no supporters and Hannity would have no voice and people like Limbaugh wouldn’t get a medal of honor for anything.
I’m going to give you a small list of struggling media the GOP has tried to subdue. They used to get funding but it was stopped during the age of Trump so they have to rely on people to help. Here are a few sites to check out to get you started if you don’t know about them already. I have relied on them for truth for more than 20 years.

There are more than these 4. Compare what you learn to the pablum the networks regurgitate everyday, mixing up the words to make it appear as “NEW” news. It’s mind-numbing. Be proactive in educating yourself. Stop being a robot and turning on evening news because it’s a habit you’ve always had. Stop being another counted viewer of the Trump Show just to see what stupid things he’ll say today. TURN HIM OFF! ! Make the ratings go down. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE share thIs. Change the cycle. It is one action you CAN do when you think the is nothing you can affect to make a difference..
