Why Has YouTube Banned My Hit Show “Kids Talk Politics” in America?!

OK, no more Mr. Nice Guy, YouTube!  Why in the heck can’t you get your act together and get my popular political channel KidsTalkPolitics fixed?

6.4 million views, real views not paid views, and 6,695 subscribers are denied hearing kids we interview talk about these crazy 2016 presidential elections.  This despite the fact we’ve been doing this show since our PBS debut in 200o for the Gore Bush debates lead-in, popular reviews in Parent Magazine, CitizenTube and have the #1 Amazon video for kids and politics 8 years solid.  Outrageous to be shut down!

Looks nice above doesn’t it?  But when you click a video link you see this:

OK, so Trump’s sexual exploits and now Bill Clinton’s affairs are all over the web and sweet videos about kids talking politics is banned in America? Disgusting.

I have tried repeatedly to get this fixed, YouTube.  Even visiting YouTube’s plush offices in LA personally only to be given a robotic runaround. Granted, KTP is an old 2008 account from before Google bought YouTube. The access got lost in cyberspace when the AOL email account that ran it got hacked.  But I can prove who the heck I am!  My name Ken Sheetz is listed on every video for crying out loud. It should take a tech all of 5 minutes to fix this nonsense.

Bottom-line, I see no sign of human life, no real customer service at either Google or YouTube.  I can’t even get an answer on why the USA ban!!! And this is one of my largest income producing channels.  Not cool.  YouTube owes me an apology and some bucks for dropping the ball on this mess.

Rant complete.  Hoping we are back online for election day.  If not look for the show on Vimeo soon.

How to Smile Your Way Through This Stinky Election

Today’s planetary meditation is how to stay positive in the face of our world’s depressing stinky state of politics.

There’s lots of conspiracy talk about shadow governments really running our planet. It must be true because shadow energy is contagious and fear driven. One painful look at our sick American government shows it to be a shadow of it’s former self.

Today’s politics is like a decaying watermelon and we the ants forced to scurry here and there, desperately looking for the last bit of nourishment of red juicy melon goodness.  Fact is, both candidates are like choosing between two cups of yogurt far past their expiration dates. You can pick one but either will make you barf.

Sounds depressing until you realize decay is a natural part of the cycle of life. Bacteria feed and break down the old to be reborn into the new.

The trick to not falling into depression is to not focus on the old compost but on what is next. Why not a government run by Tweet polls on important matters? Perhaps we only need caretakers to carry out the wishes of the majority? Fire the politicians.

Above all stay positive avoid watching our equally decaying media heap manure on the compost pile of these elections.  You can get all you need to know stinky no-choice election from the comedians.  Bless them all.

Bernie Pulls a Kramer

In one of Seinfeld’s most famous episodes: Kramer hires a hard-boiled New York lawyer to rep him in a lawsuit against a major coffee company.  Unbeknownst to Kramer the Java coffee company is prepared to start out of court settlement talks at $50,000 and free coffee at any of their stores for life.

But before the coffee company can even say more than “free coffee” Kramer leaps to his feet and settles for a single cup of coffee.

Bernie Pulls a Kramer by Ken Sheetz

From the few concessions we are learning of, Bernie appears to jumped to his feet for the DNC and Hillary campaign shouting, “I’ll Take it!” and pulled a Kramer.  The Bern’s actions seem more motivated by fear of Trump than a true liking for Hillary’s corporatism. But the path of fear is never the way to the light.

Or is this shocking Hillary endorsement the master stroke of a 74-year-old political veteran who plans to fight on at the DNC as FDR did so long with a similar endorsement? One can only hope as Hillary is not a good fit with the principles of Bernie campaign backers and the path to brighter future we all are meditating for.

I really don’t know.  None of us do because of the old school back-room politics Bernie’s Hillary endorsement represents.  In any case, the sorry result is that large numbers Bernie’s supporters are feeling betrayed and abandoned like Kramer’s lawyer did to hilarious effect on Seinfeld, as you can watch below. Only in real-life abandonment is never funny.

And watch Bernie’s Kramer here from my favorite politico.
