Progressive News with Tim Black's bottom-up style call-in show, Freedom Friday, included some sparkling gems from Tim, as always, and several great call-in comments, on Friday Nov. 4.

At approximately 31 minutes, in response to Tim's insightful words, call-in commenter Bruce from Baltimore made some great points. He began by responding to Tim's comments about what Colin Powell called "Hillary Clinton's hubris," and the situation she has set up, in which international mega donors to the Clinton Foundation are facing the possibility of the house of cards falling down. Tim had ruminated over the possibility that something "bad could happen," given the power of the mega wealthy and their possible angry response to their predicament.

And indeed, "somethings bad" have already happened, including some incidents in the very recent past. Bruce started by mentioning one:

"If (someone doesn't) think something "bad could happen", let's not forget how quickly the news forgot about Seth Rich. It's kind of funny that in any other news cycle, a DNC staffer who was allegedly giving information to Julian Assange, all of a sudden, 3 o'clock, there are no cameras, gets two shots in the back of the head by a horrible robber who didn't even care to grab the wallet, that's just amazing!

And then just like that, CNN forgot about it, FOX news forgot about it, all the mainstream media forgot about it... Just like when an individual shot at a Bernie Sanders Headquarters... you hear about it once or twice, and then it just disappears.

Because that's what happens when the people who are making the money also control the message. you have the president out there stomping for Hillary, even though he said, 'she will say anything and do nothing.'

now they're all hugging on stage because they get paid by the same people. Like we don't see that!

We're millennials, we see through all that BS... we have people like Tim Black, .. we have people like Democracy Now... who aren't bought by 'politics'

I'm getting sick and tired of Obama trying to keep guilting people into voting for (Hillary)

Because first it was: if you vote for third party, you're voting for Trump...

then it was: if you don't vote, you are voting for Trump...

then it was: if you don't vote for Hillary you are destroying my legacy...
