Blue-Collar Michigan Scholar's
Squeaky Wheel Gets The Grease,
Food for Thought,
TV News Ticker Idea,
To Local Tv and National TV Channels Across the USA to
Help Increase Voter Registration, Turnout and Voting: The News Ticker.
On our TV's it's located at the bottom of the screen. It scrolls right to left, displaying breaking news, sports scores, weather, school closings...etc.
Does politics, also. Saw primary results scroll by in it few weeks ago.
It does politics just fine.
It'll be even finer with register to vote dates. So,
How about putting Last Day to Register To Vote in Primary and General Election Dates on that
scrolling News Ticker?
Both Local and National TV New Channels could do this. It would be a
Someone's just gotta type it in. It's digital. It's Free.
Doesn't cost anything, I bet.
Advertising works, or we wouldn't see so many ads and commercials,
Why not "advertise" the Voter Registration and Election Dates in the News Ticker?
Maybe a Michigan politician or some other states politician will see this Michigan news ticker - registration and voting date idea, Support
Heck, just maybe,
a Presidential candidate
or member of their campaign staff
Michigan news ticker advertising idea,
an idea that informs people and promotes more voter turnout.
Now, that would be
That's TV watchin' that
makes a difference.
Thanks, if you can make it happen.
You got our vote.
just spoke about a
National Voting Day
Until this happens
(with today's political climate, don't hold your breath),
news ticker idea is one that could be done
to promote voter turnout
for 2016 Primary and
can be done now and
don't cost nuthin'.
Money saved fills a pothole.
Sounds like a
for everyone...and their cars!
Just my blue-collar,

Michigan scholarly 2 cents.
while listening to
Grand Funk Railroad,
We're An American Band album
Cranked up too loud.
Why aren't these guys in Cleveland, Ohio's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame?
Maybe a Michigan Republican Delegate to the
2016 Republican Convention in Cleveland, Ohio
can put in a good word
for the Band at the
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's in Cleveland, Ohio also.
Heck, try to put it in the party platform
(just kidding, hmmmm...on second thought).
At least, let them take their
Good Singin' and Good Playin'
to the Convention and
perform at the festivities.
That's some great
Working class music.
Crank it up.

It don't get no blue-collarer than that.

Never been to a Republican Convention
Never been to a Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame

Professor Blue Collar Scholar's Michigan Every Which Way But Loose Rap:
Gotta feelin' this 2016 Presidential election, American political history speakingwise, is gonna be one of the most analyzed, studied, reported on, editorialized, talked about, books written about, in journalism, marketing and advertising schools, college classes, universities political science courses, discussed at dinner tables (some advice, don't talk politics at dinner table), forever into the future. Campaign-wise, technology-wise, amount of print and broadcast journalism media coverage-wise, social media-wise.
This is a pivotal election every which way but loose (great 1970's Clint Eastwood movie by the way).
Political campaigns are usually boring to a lot of people. Campaign 2016 is not.
Professor Blue Collar Michigan Scholars Required Reading: The Making of The President book series by Theodore H. White Lecture: Would be wonderful if Theodore H. White, political historian and journalist, was still around to write another one of his "The Making of The President" books. At your library, check out and read the books he wrote on the presidential elections of the past we voted in. If you enjoy political history, and looking behind the curtains and scenes of presidential candidates elections campaigns of past years, the unique individuals who had a vision for our country, and decided to get involved in presidential politics, you won't be disappointed by Mr. White's legendary books. Required reading.

Professor Blue Collar Scholar Michigan Manufacturing Belt, Commercials, Commercials, Commercials Lecture: Turned TV on and heard the term "Rust Belt" used on one of the news channels discussing politics, presidential candidates Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump, Bernie Sanders, the elections, voters, West Virginia primary, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan and other states. Opinions were being shared on how competitive the presidential candidates will be in these states. Interesting discussion. Then a commercial came on. Then another. Then another. Then another. Television Advertisement Definition Wikipedia
When the show finally came back on after the commercials, another subject was the topic of conversation. Still wanted to hear more about their opinions on candidate competiveness in "rust belt" states. What's nice about the internet is with our smartphones or computers, we can do our own research and form our own opinions. Thought...hmmm...google it...see what comes up! Found the following:
Rust Belt definition at Wikipedia
Read more about the "rust belt" topic and"rust belt" was traditionally referred to as the manufacturing belt, factory belt, steel belt, as opposed to rust belt. Hopefully, if manufacturing jobs and careers increase in the "rust belt" states, the traditional terms will become part of our lexicon again.

Collection of primary source materials. Great historical lookback at elections for the Executive Branch of our government, The Presidency of the United States circa 1789 through 1920.
Blue Collar Michigan Scholar Rap: Compared to our times today, the times back then were more challenging for our Presidential candidates, communications wise. Presidential campaigns during the early periods operated before the advent of broadcast radio, television, electricity, telephones, recordings, automobiles and other amenities we enjoy today like smartphones, the internet, world wide web.
In the Earlier times and years of the Presidency, there were no ABC, Bloomberg Tv, CBS, C-Span, NBC, CNN, Dish Tv, Direct Tv, Fox News, MSNBC, Newsmax Tv, Free Speech Tv, Talk Radio, telephone companies..etc. There were newspapers. Political candidates penned editorials in local newspapers. Citizens wrote in letters to the editor. Candidate's Speeches delivered in various public and private venues. People walked and traveled by horse.
Communications were much slower then. Word of mouth. Imagine the challenges of a Presidential campaign during the era. How hard the candidates must of worked to earn each vote. They loved our great country, wanted it to be successful, forever into the future. Each candidate had a vision for this future and their own prescription for it's success, using the communications tools of those earliest times, just as
Ted Cruz-Carly Fiorina
use the communications tools of our times today.
In our mind's eye, just can't picture the time the Father of our Country, George Washington, our First President, Facebooking, Instagramming, Tweeting on Twitter or whatevering. One pictures George Washington exclaiming "I cannot tell a lie, it's folly! That's what it is. folly, John Adams"!
