I cannot believe this speech was not on at the top of every news channel in the country. Stuff like that is what makes me know that the media is not
telling us the truth, and not reporting on the real news out there. I will email this to everyone on my list though, so that the news will at least
get out there to my own little circle.
It's all just too much. What can the average person do to change any of this? I am so frustrated by my own lack of ability to do anything. I have
written a half dozen letters to the editors of my own local papers, and none published yet, even if I try to soft pedal my message to get it past the
There is just no platform for people to voice their outrage. The media will not even acknowlege it exists. However if you want to read about Brittney
Spears or Brad and Angelina it sure isn't hard to find news. It's a sad reflection on us that we are being led by the nose like we are.
I fear that the days of real change and revolution are gone forever, and that the military industrial machine may be in an unbreakable position of
control. We have become a nation of people who sit and watch it happen and grumble to one another in our living rooms.
Where are the million man marches to end this war? If we could get people out there in the streets like that then maybe we could change the status
quo, even a litle bit. But it will never happen, because most people are not even truly aware. They are happy reading about Brad and Angelina and
ingesting the BS that the media feeds us about the progress we are making in the war on Terror.
I fear we are in a downhill slide that is not going to end until they have milked this country dry and we are living like a third world nation right
here in the USA. I pray I am wrong, but my gut tells me it ain't good.
