NUMEROUS major news outlets including Yahoo at the end of the weekend reported that the final talks are finishing up as the bill is expected to pass
early monday. In fact the bailout bill was never truly that definitively close to passing. What the media is doing is they are programming your mind
to think that it's a done deal so that YOU WILL CEASE RESISTANCE AND FACILITATE THEM IN THEIR HEINOUS THEFT.
Let me repeat it again for those uncertain of what I'm saying, the media is using neuro linguistic programming techniques MORE and MORE to make you
think certain events are either a done deal or others never occurred.
NUMEROUS NEWS OUTLETS reported that the bill will easily pass on monday and in fact it was brutally rejected.
First of all, you're going way over the top with the drama. Here, allow me to pick apart your arguments and inject some much-needed common sense:
You said: "NUMEROUS NEWS OUTLETS reported that the bill will easily pass on monday and in fact it was brutally rejected."
The reality: The bill was expected to be passed and the media reported this because that's what they were told by their contacts in congress. In
fact, the bill was NOT "brutally" rejected at all. It passed in the senate and BARELY failed in the House of Representatives by a slim margin of 12
You said: "What the media is doing is they are programming your mind to think that it's a done deal so that YOU WILL CEASE RESISTANCE AND FACILITATE
THEM IN THEIR HEINOUS THEFT"
The reality: What the media is doing is reporting the news and making assumptions based on what the experts in Congress are telling them. Reporters
ask the hard questions - is it going to pass or not? Of course no one has a 100$ accurate answer to that question, so they ask the so-called experts
to give their best opinion. Based on their opinions, the media reports that the bailout is LIKELY to happen.
I challenge you to find ONE, just ONE story and link it from Sept. 28, 27 or 26th from any reputable media source that says the bailout will
definately happen - not quoting someone that says the bailout will happen - but where the story says the bailout will happen without a doubt.
You won't be able to because any media outlet making this statement would be guessing the future without certainty.
What I find amazing is that you, with your heightened sense of drama and BS can get so many ignorant people to star this stupid thread and give any
credibility that this is all some massive media conspiracy to get people to shut the hell up and that they have no effect on present events.
Here. I'm going to do something PRODUCTIVE with this thread. Here's the link to contact your Congressperson in the House of Representatives. Tell
them how you feel about the bailout and stress your position on it. I would advise you to leave the conspiracy crap about the media out of your
correspondence to them.
