    CNN; Read what you write and listen to people speak on your broadcasting.

    These people (Politicians and News Media); servants of our nation and America’s elite are on a different planet or they just do not get it!

    We are American’s in a free land; are we or are we not?

    Then Americans are just Americans and as a “United States of America” we are not Anglo Americans, African Americans, Mexican Americans, Asian Americans, and Indian Americans, etc., etc., etc. Is African American a statement of separation or racial bigotry?

    We are only Americans!

    Why didn't CNN make a big story of the Democratic candidates refusing to debate on FOX NEWS?
