    Now, that I’ve curbed my anger, this should be a “fair warning” to PEW.

    Take, for example, for PEW to “send out” its researchers/analysts onto any Rez of Choice, and interview these First Americans, and to their shame, these R/A’s would find that there is no electricity available, and thusly, no FOX or ABC or NBC or CBS.

    Of course, the Clients that are paying for these PEW “results” find no ‘marketing and sales’ value as it pertains American consumerism. Therefore, when I “see” or “read” of public opinion polling outfits intentionally ignoring Native American “opinion” being incorporated into the overall national political views, the traditional news is walking on only one leg, and from therein, “opinion” falls flat on it public face.

    Some years ago, the “majority” got their “news” off the Internet. Today, I think this behavior remains quite the same. As such, a “variety” of internet blogs do a much better effort for bringing forth the “news.”

    And it’s from this perspective that Native Americans and Chicanos “discount” traditional news outlets such as the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Denver Post and the Los Angeles Times, just to mention a few.

    And all things being equal, political blogs do a quite accurate interpretation of this “news.” So, when Digby coined the phrase, the “villagers,” she was quite prescient in her thinking.

    And unbeknownst to the many, DailyKos has raised a considerable amount of monies and thusly, these monies are being used on the Indian Rezs’ in support of the “get out the vote” and yet, this “story” won’t even make it into the ‘back pages’ of these traditional news outlets. However, these monies from Kos and the like, are a “big story.” Of course, Democratic Party’s operatives who effectively appear on the Sunday Morning Talking Heads Circuit, are oblivious to this Reality. And we, the “minorities” are cognizant that “addressing” the issues that pertain to the Rez, and in particular, students who have to carry their chair from room to room, are not ‘visible’ to the off-Rez Democrats and Republicans. Ass, such, Common Core means having to carry your own chair in order to achieve your Potential.

    Oops, my rant gets in the way of politics.

    It takes two hours driving time from Phoenix to the Gulf of California. And if going by airplane, from Phoenx to Hermosillo, the capital of the State of Sonora, and on to Cabo San Lucas, it will not be time consuming for you.

    It’s nice to know that the “team” has some serious brain power and brings it into a subject area that does matters! Take, for example, that here in my neck of the woods, or the Sonoran Desert, we, Native Americans and Chicanos, know little of the pre-supposed Caliphate , and predicated on local history, has [...]

    Shutterbuggery,

    Thanks for the “heads-up.” It never occurred to me that “before 2001″ would be an obvious pivot point in publishing.

Of late, I’ve been reading Brad Baldacci, Brad Thor, James Rollins, Steve Barry and Andrew Cross, and yet, the ‘conservative’ shines through, as well. Perhaps its the genre or these author’s well-understanding the purchasing habits of us, [...]

And further, 24 Senators voted in opposition to the AUMF Resolution, and which represents a very sizable population, and as such, the majority of the Democratic-aligned Senators voted for this less-than=prudent legislation.

African Americans on Libya, also reaffirms the ever-present political nonsense for kicking sand in the cogs of death, and thusly, any change cannot occur, otherwise or until Anglos become ever more tiresome, given Leon Panetta’s latest diatribe.

    Here’s my Indigenous View and as seen from the Sonoran Desert. Back in 2002 and during the run-up to America’s Second Iraq War, Congress passed it’s AUMF Resolution, and on the premise that 90% of America’s white Democracy affirmed this Resolution. In contrast, America’s brown Democracy opposed this Resolution at 90 percent. And it’s from [...]

    Respectfully said, I disagree!

    The history of dynamic scoring comes down to believing in the visceral Crappola that “low tax rates leads to higher employment.” Although this political meme has been espoused by conservatives, Democrats and Republicans alike. Sadly, Democrats “bought” into meme back in 1984 and 1985 when they sought to ‘surge’ their campaign donations from Wall Street.
    And the obnoxious and faux progressive Senator from New York ‘sold it’ to the rest of the Democrats in the Senate, and thereby creating our national Contest of Wills between the conservative Republicans and the Conservative Democrats and where the 99% were intentionally excluded. And that’s where we’re at in today’s politics.

    Thus, separate offices, is a true waste of taxpayer dollars. And we wonder how we created a national debt of $27 trillion since the ascendance of Ronald Reagan?

Consequently, when we the “strategic thinkers/planners” of this Indigenous Hemisphere and with our emphasis on a “natural Democracy” we are not overly surprised, given that we, taken collectively, understand well that America’s white Democracy will transition into [...]

    Obviously, you’ve been neglectful of our Indigenous History! :)

    Thusly and for these past millennia, we have affectionately called ourselves the Gatos Negros Society but please don’t tell those European-oriented folks from history past. Otherwise, the Snyder-oriented will attempt to patent and trademark us, and much to their delight when it comes to their money-making opportunities.

    In the meantime, we continue to remain the non-uranium-oriented Sentinels at the Grand Canyon.

    Indeed, an excellent commentary. For many years now, I have been writing of the pending ‘transition’ from a white Democracy and into a brown Democracy, given that the stats from the Census Bureau, reinforces my view. To wit, a transition that will begin within the next ten to fifteen years, and where the emphasis will [...]

    In the run-up to Congress’ approval of the AUMF Resolution, I wrote a column from my Indigenous Perspective advocating for our “loan” of our Constitution to the Iraqi people, and thusly, installed a period of 30 years. Of course, my notional was reviled far and wide since I was opposed to the AUMF Resolution.

    And today, Walker asks the appropriate Question.

    Now, onto PEW, in particular.

    Had PEW utilized the following subject areas, the results would have been far different.

    1. Jobs
    2. More Jobs
    3. Immigration Reform
    4. Environment

    From my geographical location that is the Sonoran Desert, 90% of “racial and ethnics” would have been the ‘result.’

    Why?

    When the historians of the future write their Great Scribbling, America changed with Bush and Cheney’s AUMF Resolution and where 90% of white America was supportive. In contrast, 90% of ‘racial and ethnics’ were adamantly opposed. As such, the AUMF is America’s precursor for “understanding” today’s politics.

    And PEW doesn’t have an inkling of the future, but measuring the Past, will be readily discount for viable media institutions. Thus “wrong” is America’s past. To wit, American’s Republican conservatives and the conservative Democrats tossed our Democracy into the urinal while privatizing War and the attendant profitmaking.

    Is PEW part and parcel to the national news media?

    Of course, I look at today’s politics primarily from the standpoint of America’s “racial and ethnics.” Therefore, two-thirds of my community doesn’t trust the national media outlets for their consistent and constant repetition for asserting that the ‘battle’ is between conservative Republicans and conservative Democrats.

    And as such, those of us and who are not conservative, don’t have much if any access to the national media outlets, and of course, if the ‘structure’ in the Senate is not enhanced by a Progressive Caucus in the Senate, collectively, we, lose since we don’t have much if any “access” to crafting a newer and better political story that connects with the non-conservatives.

    As “racial and ethnics,” we well realize that without our participation in the Democratic party, this lack of participation would be a sizable boon to the conservative Democrats. In contrast, our participation in the Democratic Party, especially here in Arizona, we are the “backbone” for the Democrats. Further, our participation was the “driving force” for the actualization or implementation for the latest version of an expanded Medicaid or Obamacare. Moreover, an additional 50,000 ‘racial and ethnics’ will be voting in November’s election and on behalf of the Democrats.

    In closing, ‘expanding’ the Democratic Party will only be viable, should the rest of white America, begin voting for locating, encouraging, and working for Progressive candidates, both for local and national congressional elections. Until then, let us “enjoy” our frustration and from therein, the rest of the non-conservatives will get off their hands, and begin to craft this Progressive Caucus. Of course, a Caucus comprised of a minimum of Four Members, shifts the Conservative Democratic Conversation to a more serious Leftward Direction and beneficial to our views for being the Icons of Progressivism.
