Not so ‘shameless’

The majority of the time I totally disagree with Mr. Navarette and I disagree with his “In politics, the shameless succeed.”

The reason Donald Trump is so popular throughout the country is because he is saying exactly what the average working class American wants to hear.

Many of us are frustrated and tired of the status quo. We no longer trust career politicians, the mainstream media or people like Mr. Navarette telling us what is best for us.

For that reason more and more of us are turning to the internet to get a different take on what is really going on in the Valley, Texas, the U.S. and the rest of the world.

I will use a perfect example of the media’s attempt to cover up pertinent news. This past Christmas Day, the arson fire at a mosque in Houston received the media’s undivided attention. Their hope was that some Islamophobic white man had set the mosque on fire.

My guess is that few people here in the Valley know that it was a “devout” member of that mosque that was arrested and charged with arson.
