Do you ever find yourself saying, "how come I am just finding out about this IMPORTANT news now?" I mean, come on, some things should be front page stories! And in our digital world it's easier than putting ink on paper. How about Angela Merkel stepping down? Seriously now, how often was this on your nightly news? Maybe I am just out of the mainstream media loop...maybe they mentioned it and I simple didn't believe them. Or maybe she mention it years ago and I simply missed it. But I know for a fact that I didn't see it blasted all over Social media a few days ago, which is where I find most of my news, from boots on the ground folks. Merkel is no Margaret Thatcher, but as the Chancellor of Germany since 2005, I would think her official announcement less than a week ago would have been a major news story here in the US. Perhaps that is just me. And what about what is happening in Kuwait's Government? Or, what about the situation with the Italian Government? Or the Dutch Government?
I guess I should blame myself for my ignorance as all of this information is out there, I just needed to search for it.
Here are a few tidbits of interest. Most of these current events occurred this Jan. 2021 within days of each other with a few just months ago. Does anyone else find any of this odd?

IS IT A CONSPIRACY?
I really don't think that everyone needs to be an investigative journalist to find out what is going on in the world! Do you? Shouldn't all of the reports above been shared by the mainstream media to all Americans? Is this like the Hunter Biden story that was completely blacked out by the Press and Social Media Giants? It is truly no wonder that so many Americans are completely ignorant to anything that is going on in the world. That's not a conspiracy, it's the truth and it is born from the ideology of, ignorance and apathy...I don't know and I don't care. We have become so intellectually lazy that we rely on others to do our research for us. How many times do I see a Fakebook post where a person asks for a link, instead of taking the time to do the research themselves? More times than I should! Do I think there is a conspiracy in all the links posted above? Maybe...maybe not. But I do think it is crucial for us to know what is going on in this great big world of ours. We are all interconnected...
