The video "Who should America vote for president in 2016, & Selected candidates by position on important issues" is out! Plus why I didn't mention Israel/Palestine & Jill Stein on gun control, & credits for pictures.

After 3 weeks of hard work, the video is finally out! Now I'll just have to wait for the comments to start rolling in. This will be released on almost all of my social media profiles.
I know it is definitely not the most refined or well done video out there, but that's almost my best with the resources (I didn't spend any money) and the experience (very little) that I have.



I didn't really mention Israel/Palestine here directly becuase of how divisive that issue is and how many people it can turn off, but I've linked to my article "Should we support Israel? If so, why or why not? And the truth about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict exposed" instead.


When it comes to Jill Stein on gun control, as I explicitly said, I do NOT agree with her. However, I am not sure rather or not she is as gung ho as Democrats are, she definitely has more integrity than almost any other Democrat (or Republican) politician, and has enough intelligence to know that guns are NOT the (only) cause of violence, from what I've read on http://www.ontheissues.org/2016/Jill_Stein_Gun_Control.htm.

Not voting for Jill Stein simply for her stance on gun control is, while completely understandable, pretty selfish. Getting the heck out of wars should be priority #1. We can fight and block Stein's gun laws if she is trying to pass them.

Progress for the "Who should America vote for 2016" video slideshow is coming along well, a link to the slideshow, plus the new poster for it

Yesterday, I finally got back to the project that I announced back in April, Who should America vote for 2016?, and I'm pretty much finished with the slideshow part (though expect me to keep making edits and add to it). I plan to publicise the slideshow this weekend after I made some of the final touches to it, and I may record it using Screen Recorder software this weekend if I have the time and my mood is right.

It takes only a few minutes go record going through the slideshow itself.

BUT, will take about another Friday and weekend to actually put in the audio, mostly background music, all of which will be free becuase I don't want to pay for anything to produce this. And that WILL be an absolute pain in the rear-end and is very frustrating.

So expect the video to come out in late August or very early September.

Here's the poster:
.


Why haven't I done this? I simply over concentrated on doing my other blogspot posts. And my grandfather dying in early July did not help either, and I ended up not posting for about 3 weeks.

But on the 7th of this month, with little else to do, I got to work on the slideshow video, and it's turning out great, with minor improvements over my last video such as a little bit better usage of contrasting colors and a technique that I discovered in which I place a picture and the captions beside each other instead of just on top and below each other, which is sometimes a more efficient use of space.

Simple ways to combat American political stupidity & polarization



More than what the above video says, the best way I can think of is to call up political comedians and to tell them to shut up and get out of politics if they are not going to be dead serious about it, and perhaps more importantly, just boycott them and start listening to the alternate media. I know that these more serious alternate media outlets and people are not nearly as funny as comedians or The Daily Show or Louder with Crowder, but the information provided is a whole lot more important and accurate.

Do you like my "Read if you're making assumptions about me" post?
