Here’s a quick question for my associates on ATS, who by the way seem at times to be the only beacon of possible truth in an ever growing sea of
So Before I rant let me extend a firm THANK YOU to you all, even the ones I get annoyed with.
This isn’t for stars and flags just a quick opinion gathering device.
I was going through various web homepages, Yahoo, MSN, and a couple others as well as Youtube and I find myself getting a knot of anger and aggression
in my stomach and here’s why.
I know the American people are almost unanimously understood to be brain dead automatons who only do what they’re told by corporatists and god like
powers that be, but come on!. …..*Before anyone gets offended Im an American too*….
Anyway as I look to certain areas of these WebPages I notice it looks like the check out isle at your local grocery store. Basically NOTHING BUT BS..
Tabloids, Celeb gossip, Administration worship, sports and quirky little food recipes.
Oh and get this little gem, according to those websites that’s "WHATS TRENDING NOW!!!"..
Look I know I’m not telling you something that you don’t already know. I just want to share my aggravation over this issue with like minded
You see, Maybe I’m about to have a point proven to me about the mental stability of many of us Conspiracy theory folk, that being maybe…Just maybe
things are not bad at all and we fervently look for gloom and doom.
I mean maybe there isn’t an industrial disaster destroying huge swaths of ocean in the gulf.
Maybe there isn’t really a problem with Iran and quite possibly an imminent attack by US and Israeli forces.
Maybe congress really isn’t nefariously sneaking wild and crazy bills into action behind our backs.
Oh and maybe there isn’t a whole plethora of sinister acts that are currently peeling the flesh from the worlds bones. Nah, not at all.
Perhaps I need earnestly listen to Google, and Yahoo, and MSN on “What’s Trending Now” Because numbers don’t lie right? I mean Those are the
“true” statistics, and of course people really are interested in the following:
Video: Prince Harry, girlfriend call it quits
Britain's royal heir & girlfriend
Chelsy Davy end six-year relationship
Suge Knight Files $106 Million Lawsuit Against Former Partner
Mozzarella Cheese balls turning blue. (I hate it when that happens don’t you..GOSH!)
Look I’ll hand it to MSN…… No not really, but I will acknowledge that they seem to show the thinnest veneer of real news though that’s quite
Oh but that precious gem of MSM Yahoo touting every conceivable form the preposterous slime, from Lady Gaga, to Isn’t life peachy summer BBQ
recipes. What’s that? Oh …puked in my mouth a little, my bad.
I know or at least I have heard that these companies fix the trends, basically controlling the media.
So that if in reality aforementioned topics weren’t actually searched you the slave, the sheep, the gullible masses will never be the wiser.
So what’s the deal, am I just irritated because maybe people really are searching those things and my nightmare of the public not waking up is a God
Are these corporate giants skewing the publics perception of reality to wrangle them into a catatonic state of celebrity crotches and bedazzling
A part of me is screaming right now ”Please don’t let it be so!”
But another part of me isn’t surprised, but come on man seriously... Can so many people be so Apa-Freakin-Thetic to the world around them that
current trends are showing nothing but mindless drivel being the priority?
If so then I’m afraid many trends forecasters and supposed experts are right when they claim we're sliding into a pit where we may quite possibly
So to all those aficionados out there who are in love with POP culture and perhaps assisting in the demise of my life I say; sorry to tinkle in your
By the way I’m currently looking for proof that these guys and others are fixing the trending stats.
Please don’t let me rant alone.
Thanks to everyone for reading.
