The US is a society that is basically ruled by a handful of what conspiracy theorists call the "Elite": Large corporates, politicians, wealthy individuals. Those entities have rather simple goals A) PROFIT B) POWER/CONTROL C) POWER/CONTROL and PROFIT

The last few days I am looking at America again and I am nothing but appalled seeing how American's are brainwashed, and what I see is staggering parallels to pre-NAZI Germany.

People are demonstrating and voicing their anger against buses with immigrants. "Yes, it is the immigrants who are responsible for all our problems". Comedians like S. Palin come to the scene now and demanding to impeach Obama because of a "failed immigration policy".

Oh my, how those immigrants are all responsible for the doom of America!

While there is no doubt that illegal immigration plays "some" role for America's problems I think that illegal immigration makes only a tiny fraction of the problems we/you guys are having. HOWEVER, conservative politicians now have a wonderful opportunity to distract from the real issues and furthering their agendas.

There are three buses with 20 illegals each and people standing there with signs, demonstrating.

Just down the road may be the headquarter of corporate X (such as HP, Any random "American" car manufacturer, whatever) where it's perfectly legal that their entire customer service department, manufacturing is outsourced to Pakistan or India. (Ever wondered why you are connected to India when you call HP tech support, for instance?)

NO ONE, absolutely NO ONE of the American people is holding signs in front of those companies and asking why it's legal that thousands of jobs are outsourced to 3rd world countries.

NO ONE is holding up signs wondering why any big "American" car manufacturer is actually manufacturing abroad.

NO ONE is holding up signs and demonstrating why LEVIS Jeans, the football your are playing with or most goods you get at Walmart are actually made in Sri Lanka or Pakistan by children.

AMAZING.

A huge chunk of American jobs is long gone, those jobs are in Pakistan, India, Sri Lanka, China.

Because it's entirely legal for corporates to do so, because it is what makes them profit. Because it's corporates and their profit who rule your country.

Guess what. S. Palin and whatever conservative politician are now having a blast. Because you are shaking your fists and blaming Jose and Jorge for the fact that you don't have a job! I guess those politicians are keeling over right now laughing.

Instead of ADDRESSING and solving your problems which are mainly brought on by unregulated, wild-west capitalism where a corporate can do whatever they want for their own profit, you are now demanding the impeachment of your president because he is "too liberal", because of the idea of universal health care or whatever things considered "socialist".

Here is my advice:

You really, really should vote for some right comedian like Romney or Palin in 2016. I would advice that corporates in America need even more freedom, that they get huge tax breaks anytime when they outsourced, say, a good number of jobs to Swasiland or Sri Lanka. Healthcare should be scrapped, so should be your entire "welfare" system. Corporates should be allowed to pay as little as they want for those few remaining jobs WITHIN the US. Ah heck, let's just make a law that they can hire people to work without pay...maybe in exchange for some food and a shack where they can live between their shifts.

And while things will get worse and worse (because NO ONE will touch your holy corporates), let's throw stones at buses with immigrants, because, ya know, if it wasn't for Jorge and Jose you ALL still had your well paying jobs! Bad, bad Mexicans they are!

Must be talking about those 535 congressman on capitol shill.

Must mean that profiting from free cell phones,free healthcare, free homes, free education, free food,free contraception etc.

That are ALL corporate products.

I agree brainwashed.

And rightly so.

Hell between the nation that is 17 trillion in debt. Over 100 million Americans not working. Over 100+ million Americans that are on that glorious 'single payer' government ran healthcare.

They have every right to be mifted.

In case some people missed it. There ain't enough to go around now.

This nation didn't take the world to feed, and cloth, and my personal favorite 'educate'.

Yeah there is hypocrisy here.

But that trait is NOT unique to the right.

The flip side of that coin is JUST as Greedy . JUST as materialistic, and just as 'brainwashed' as what the op is trying to demagogue.

Like every issue when it comes to American politics.

It is always the pot calling the kettle.

You think the problem is just with the republicans?


Democrats - The rich telling the poor that they're poor due to the rich...and then being elected by them!
Democrats - thinking the republicans are waging war on women, but the radical Muslims aren't.
Democrats - thinking Fox news is political propaganda, but CNN tells the truth.

Pull your head the rest of the way out of the sand! You're only half right. The republicans DO suck - but so do the democrats.

The hypocrisy of the American left:

They are still blaming Bush which has become a tired old cliche that needs to be retired
after 2 years of total control of both houses of congress and the Presidency and 4 years of control of 2/3 (senate and Presidency)

If there is no real turn around in 6 years then don't blame someone else. Seems like the same old finger pointing and blame avoiding, "the buck stops there!"


Things the progressives/liberals/Democrats have succeeded in over the past 6 years in the USA:

Convinced Americans that the intact nuclear family is to be made fun of and chastised for being intolerant and exclusive and even far worse the most economically successful of all family types with the best overall outcomes for their children - so unfair.

The intact nuclear family is now a thing to be ashamed of in the US, only the loose knit informally bonded family is tolerant, and even more tolerant and desirable is the LBGT family.

Convinced white people that they are inherently evil and racist and insensitive (ie white privilege) and
not worthy of participating in the US because of their unconscious racism and insensitivity

Celebrated the single parent family and made fathers nothing more than sperm donors
who are unnecessary in raising children in urban life
(which studies show leaves most of these people in a cycle of poverty and greatly increases the chances of the children becoming criminals)

Convinced Americans that to think someone who commits a crime under US law should not only be forgiven but given all the benefits of law abiding citizens (illegal aliens)

Convinced Americans that the people who hire them and pay their salaries are inherently evil and selfish and are not to be trusted under any circumstances.
Building a wall between them that may take generations to break down.

Convinced Americans that to be a Christian or Jew is to be intolerant, ignorant and even violent, and worthy of constant ridicule and exclusion from all public life; but to be any other religion is to be celebrated and venerated as worthy of special consideration because
we must be tolerant of others (except those nasty Christians and their Jewish brothers and sisters)

Convinced Americans that no one is to be trusted and so all email must be collected,
all phone calls monitored and all internet activity scrutinized

because just to be a US citizen by birth is to be imbued and tainted with the intolerance and arrogance that goes along with being an american citizen.

Convinced Americans that it is intolerant and bigoted and evil to fly the American flag or even wave it,

don't even try to express pride in the US or you are considered suspicious and possibly dangerous,

patriotism is now a flag word for a dangerous thinker and perhaps a dangerous person.

Job so well done it has permeated the American psyche and become a reality
because US citizens were told so often it was a reality.

And what did the Republicans do while socialists/liberals/progressives/democrats were convincing the American people they are so awful - so awful that it became a self fulfilling prophecy? A big fat nothing and so are complicit.

So you are basically saying that the illegal immigrants are criminals and the people who hire them are NOT even if what they do is helping to destroy the American economi and taking "your" job?

First off Op, we dont have "universal health care", we have heath insurance at the barrel of a gun. It is you will purchase insurance if you can afford it or not, or else. It is not universal health care stop your BS.

Second, you left out most of the rich people and corps in the country in your OP, they are lefties BTW. Soros? GE? Microsoft? Facebook? Apple? These are all lefty strongholds, they are also some the the most evil things on the planet, even outpacing the saltwater crocodile in its flat out lust for carnage.

As for the rest of your ramblings.......it just sounds like another idiot lefty blaming everything on the evil republicans.

BTW, I am not a righty, just wanted to point out your ignorance, so it may be rectified post haste.

"The Hypocracy of the American Right - How Americans Are Brainwashed"

The last few days I am looking at America again and I am nothing but appalled seeing how American's are brainwashed, and what I see is staggering parallels to pre-NAZI Germany.

 



Politicians all to often churn their propaganda with references to the *opposite* of their true intentions and agendas.

One oddity is their public downplay of religious groups that are routinely attacked as "Right Wing" all while seeming to ignore major Democrat voting blocks that are heavily "religious". SCLC for one, and the Latino blocks that are primarily Catholic, just to name two popular groups.

Also downplayed is the heavy Democrat voting blocks in the compartmentalized cities that have extremely high crime in Democrat districts.

Strange psy-ops. Maybe we are witnessing some kind of "herding" technique ?

Even stranger is the fact that the Social Democrat policies have been in effect for decades with no clear solutions to the increasing problems.

Perhaps a clever mix of A dicto simpliciter fallacies and deductive fallacies ?

Everyone basically said what I would say. I will leave you with this. Obama and the senate are lawless and are in control along with the MSM.

In case you need it spelled out: Obama is President, not Bush.

What a huge load of hyperbole and unadulterated BS.

I participated in a 4th of July Parade with what's left of my old unit and the flag, patriotism and pride of being an American was very evident.

You need to get out more and quit listening to Rush.

btw...my county is one of the most liberal, progressive and Democratic in the state.

You misunderstood. The american left has been saying over and over that people who are patriotic are dangerous. They are the ones who say the most dangerous people in the US are veterans.

I spent over 50 years as a military child/then spouse and am very proud of America.

But what I see from the American left is that veterans are not only disregarded like old shoes who have outlived their usefulness, but they are calling them dangerous and potentially domestic terrorists.

I have seen the left say no vet should own a gun because they are too well trained and love their country too much, making them a potential "Patriot" (code word for domestic terrorist by the Democrats/left).

Liberals constantly complain that flying the american flag is offensive to foreigners, so we shouldn't do it.




lag Day is a special day for people around the country to celebrate the Star-Spangled Banner — except, apparently, for the Democratic Party of America.

In a picture sent out from the official Twitter account of the Democrats on Saturday, a young Hispanic boy appears to be holding some kind of flag or banner that has the colors of Old Glory, but clearly isn’t Old Glory.




ALBANY, Ore. - At the Oaks Apartments in Albany, the management can fly their own flag advertising one and two bedroom apartments - but residents have been told they can't fly any flags at all.

Jim Clausen flies the American flag from the back of his motorcycle. He has a son in the military heading back to Iraq, and the flag - he said - is his way of showing support.

"This flag stands for all those people," said Clausen, an Oaks Apartment resident. "It stands for the people that can no longer stand - who died in wars. That's why I fly this flag."

But to Oaks Apartment management, Clausen said, the American flag symbolizes problems.

He was told to remove the red, white and blue from both of his rides, or face eviction.

"It floored me," he said. "I can't believe she was saying what she was saying."

Even long-time residents like Sharron White, who has flown a flag on her car for eight years, has been told to take it down.

White said management told her that "someone might get offended."




Debbie McLucas comes from a patriotic family – her husband and both of her sons served in the U.S. military, and her daughter is currently deployed to Iraq on her second tour of duty as a combat medic.

So when McLucas arrived at work at a Texas hospital last Friday, she was stunned to be told that the Stars and Stripes she had hung in her office in advance of Memorial Day were offensive, and that the flag had been removed.

“I got into work, I was met by my supervisor and told that there had been multiple complaints, that people found the flag very offensive and it had been taken down,"


According to socialists/liberals/democrats/progressives, the american flag is offensive

Also, I "heard", this is pure hearsay, that people are noticing far fewer people attending patriotic events
for fear of being associated with the Tea Party,

because the media says only wing nut Tea Partiers go to patriotic events
(clearly not true, but is definitely being implied by the media and liberals/progressives/socialists/democrats)

Nope - the people who hire illegal immigrants ARE criminals because it is against the law, it is illegal, illegal = a crime, it is a crime to hire illegal immigrants - committing a crime makes one a criminal

The laws in the United States clearly state that it is against the law to enter the US illegally - hence the term illegal, illegal = a crime, it is a crime to enter the US illegally - committing a crime makes one a criminal - anyone who commits a crime is a criminal.


You misunderstood my second statement: "The people who hire them..." I am referring to ALL americans who hold jobs. The socialists/progressives/liberals/democrats are saying to the American people, all employers, regardless of who they hire are evil, selfish and not to be trusted.

I am sure he means the political views that the owners/ceos of the business have.
But they still want the same thing as the rest, they just put on a front to make it look like they are not one of the elites.

Im just going to run down a quick list of bullet points related to this post:

- Jobs moving to China was more of a Bill Clinton thing than a "right" or "left" thing. He licked the boots of the Chinese, and really started the mass off shoring of our manufacturing sector to places like China and Mexico (remember NAFTA?)

- Minimum wage increasing is the same as telling you that the piece of pie you have is now 2 pieces of pie. You don't get more pie.

- People just repeat what they see on TV. Most people don't like to think, and would rather self administer electric shocks to themselves instead of sit and contemplate life.

- The problem at the border is created by our government. We made Mexico a living hell, and now have a refugee problem. Damn straight we are responsible. But since no one takes responsibility for the government run by "We The People", 'We" have decided that we aren't responsible for the refugees our government created. For more insight into this, see the point above about how people just think whatever the news tells them to think.

- you are spot on in that we do not manage our government very well, and instead of protesting things we are aware of and that are hurting us, we flock to the border. Because people are generally intellectually lazy and just think what they are told to think. If Greta and a few others decided to revolt against corporate America, "The People" would too.

Thank God you are only one person. Your opinion is noted and easily dismissed. Since when has anybody accused Charlie of eating too much chocolate after he was told there was a golden ticket inside. The illegals are hoping to get in and remain waiting for a hearing while Obama writes an executive order that grants instant amnesty. Who could resist that bar of chocolate?

By the way.....The Government IS a corporation!!!

I wish those buses were full of politicians! Everybody must get stoned!

The problem there is as with all corporate demagoguery is.

Corporations are BAD!.

Now:

Wheres my job?

Wheres my free healthcare?

Wheres my free contraception ?

Wheres my 'living wage' ?

Wheres my new made in China Iphone?

For a group of people that supposedly hates them evil corporations.

They sure do love to spend their cash on what they make.

You don't have a "left" and right" in US politics.

Your so-called "socialist commie-loving" democrats would be way to the right of center in any civilized country.

All you have is vaguely moderate right, and insanely idiotic right.

If people stopped buying crap they don't need maybe it would help. Unfortunately Americans like their needless things. This keeps corporations very fat.

When I was a kid patriotism included buying American made products. Now we will run around naked if we want to stick with that sentiment (if buying new). If people only bought what they absolutely needed from big corp it would draw attention.

I have turned to used stuff as much as possible, and this is me holding up my sign.
I'm looking at getting an old Chevy pickup. It's from the day when Americans made them and they were built to last. I don't "need" it but it will make life a lot easier with tasks around the house, and I have no guilt since its something recycled and made by us. I recently got an awesome hippie shirt from maybe the early 70's at a used clothing store. Everyone loves it and it works just fine. If I have to buy from big corp I am getting only what I need as brand new.

By the way, it isn't always easy. They make new stuff so cheap to buy it is enticing. My protest of sorts is gratifying though - as I get original cool gear, and feel better about my role in all of this.
