I LOVE how post apocalyptic america involves unionized labour, and nationalized banks. I'm apart of a union, I've worked non union, and I can tell you now that the way you are treated is night and day. So why do we disaprove of unions? Or are all of you afraid the US is going to turn into communist russia? Eh comrade? As for the banks, a bunch of privatized units desiged for self survival. Why on earth wouldnt you want them nationalized? Have the people own it, instead of rich billionaires who would rather see you wiped from the face of the earth due to your "vermon" status. If you dont believe me, look at how the average individual treats a homeless person. Its terrible, and guess what, the billionaires view you the same way. SURPRISE. Gotta love it. All I'm trying to say, is why are these guys picking on these concepts? Is this more propoganda shoved down your throats? More "invested interests" by big business? I suppose thats up to all of you to decide.

How will you save the planet if you arn't allowed to save your own country. God dang....flufffy love and blind devotion to love and understanding, wake up buddy, that is not the world we live. I would give my life if it would create such a world, but get out of your haze and just wake up.

Almost all of your posts are links to the harpies in the media, especially Beck. What you fail to understand is that Beck/Olberman are in the business of entertaining. Their programs are designed for one purpose - to entertain and make headlines. Unfortunately, there are those that take what they say as marching-orders and act accordingly.
These programs are not rooted in reality, but rooted in the headline-grabbing 'sky is falling' panic-inducing reality that has one purpose: SELL ADS. Everytime these idiots make an outlandish claim, it stands a chance of being picked up and turning viral. Then more people hear about Beck and decide to tune in. VIOLA! They get more viewers. More viewers = more money.
Please - do yourself a favor and unplug. If you want the best idea of what is happening out there, read 'The Economist' or check out the BBC. They may not be perfect sources, but they are far less influenced by $$ than the US outlets. They are also largely immune to the doom-and-gloom reporting that seems to suck so many of us ignorant Americans in.
And yes - I DO know of what I speak. I've been in the industry for 17 years and I've got an Emmy on my mantle to show for it.
In short - yes, things are bad. The landscape IS changing. The economy IS in trouble. However, it is not as bad as these idiots would have you believe. Don't take what they are telling you as ironclad fact.
Do your own reporting.

You uncompassionate right winger war mongers that want all the world's wealth for yourself while the rest of the world starves to death under your feet are in denial of the FACT that BUSH and his warmongering admin. put us in this mess.
Some Humans are so pathetic. Their so called awakening is nothing but their dreams that keep them sleeping.
