The elites really think that we are idiots. I mean, the level of contempt that they have for us astounds me. Let me give you a prime example of what I’m talking about. Corporate State Media outlets like the Washington Post and CNN are reporting with a straight face that a $100,000 Facebook

This conclusion of mine was further fortified when I read a book by Thomas Frank titled “What’s the Matter with Kansas”. In the book, Frank makes a convincing case that Republicans are letting red meat issues distract them from paying

Ayenema Wedajish: Love Sang by Jano, Felt by Us All https://ghionjournal.com/ayenema-wedajish/ https://ghionjournal.com/ayenema-wedajish/#respond Mon, 18 Sep 2017 15:26:54 +0000 https://ghionjournal.com/?p=5453 In the throes of love, music is eternal. Every sound is a strum, every clang a drum beat. Two become one and all seems perfect in the world. Love is the apex of human evolution; sad is the one who lost it, cursed is the one who never felt it. But in time, love morphs to

We Will Not Be Silenced: First They Ignore You, Then Comes Censorship https://ghionjournal.com/we-will-not-be-silenced/ https://ghionjournal.com/we-will-not-be-silenced/#comments Sun, 17 Sep 2017 20:22:18 +0000 https://ghionjournal.com/?p=5440 Let me break some news here. I am a nobody in the sphere of the opinion leaders and established “journalists”. Heck, it was only a few months ago that I was living at a mission trying to piece my life together [read Struggle’s Dilemma]. In fact, I launched the Ghion Journal while living at Harvest

I Have Zero Sympathy for Jemele Hill https://ghionjournal.com/zero-empathy-jemele/ https://ghionjournal.com/zero-empathy-jemele/#comments Sat, 16 Sep 2017 10:50:29 +0000 https://ghionjournal.com/?p=5415 Let me say from the outset that I do not know Jemele Hill outside of seeing her on TV. She could be a great human being and she deserves my respect for succeeding in a business that has always been dominated by male figures. As a sport analyst, she does a great job of presenting

Struggle’s Dilemma: Revert to Pain or Invert the Pain https://ghionjournal.com/revert-or-invert/ https://ghionjournal.com/revert-or-invert/#respond Fri, 15 Sep 2017 13:02:33 +0000 https://ghionjournal.com/?p=5403 A time comes for all where darkness envelopes us and loneliness becomes our best friend. Though we all deal with adversity differently—some lash in and break themselves while some lash out and break others—at some point a crucible interrupts normal and forever changes our outlook. None among us can escape this most deviling pain; even

Below is the segment where Lee and I discuss issues ranging from the playbook of divide and conquer, the foreign and domestic policies of our government and the mind bending hardship that comes with homelessness and the resiliency to rise above hardship.

Obama Still Peddling Change, Hey Democrats How about #CongressCareForAll https://ghionjournal.com/congress-care-for-all/ https://ghionjournal.com/congress-care-for-all/#respond Thu, 14 Sep 2017 00:31:38 +0000 https://ghionjournal.com/?p=5379 I admit, though both Republicans and Democrats are equal leeches, it’s the duplicity of the Democrats that bothers me more than the mendacity of Republicans. I can grudgingly respect their “truth in advertisement” when it comes to Republicans. They tell us off the break that their primary interest lies in serving the wealthiest few as they let

Every one of them shot down for having the temerity to stand against injustice and to stand up for the people; the few who lord over the rest are intent on silencing those who speak for universal
