Is it just me or does the news stop reporting on something once public opinion has swung away from the corporate elite's view on the subject. For
example our continuous support of israeli military activities and slaughter all for the benefit of defense contractors and US neo-con foreign policy
goals? The coverage seems to be dying down/shifting towards Obama and other incessantly discussed and pointless issues that the public could care
less about or has heard enough about, and at the same time word seems to be getting out about Israel's atrocities. The fighting hasn't stopped, in
fact the death toll is nearing 1k. Great time for a distraction. Bailout didn't receive much attention for a while, perhaps to let fuming heads
across the country cool. When was the last time we heard a peep about health care reform (national heath care is not even considered although it is
commonplace in other industrial countries), or the absurd amount spent on maintaining our empire, or the mountain of debt that will bring the country
to it's knees inevitably.
Who knows, with an informed public realizing the corruption and scandalous behavior of the system, the people might get it in their heads that this
government and the ever pervasive corporate media is not trustworthy and maybe it's time for a real change at the hands of the people in the form of
popular protest and eventually revolt.
I am ready to join the revolution. I've had enough of the corporate culture of phoniness, deceit, and general douchebagery. But in the end I think
the whole mess will collapse in on itself due to it's own overwhelming greed. Maybe the financial crisis is the tip of the iceberg. Maybe we're
about to turn the corner and actually make some headway as a society; seems we've been treading water for quite a while now.
