Another prime weapon TPTB use to keep us baaa-ing is the mass entertainment industry. Who needs to worry about America's acts of terrorism in Afghanistan and Iraq when we can see Bristol Palin crying on tv about some dance? Who needs to fret about rights going down the tubes when we have American Idol? Hey...if Lady Gaga says we're ok, then hell, we must be ok, right? Right!

Another trick is the old division trick, Madison Avenue does this really well. If we focus on getting that new car, computer, game or luxury item before the Joneses, well everything is hunky-dory. We have been indoctrinated with the idea that our level of satisfaction and security is equal to the amount of useless stuff we have. And we can't unite, because we have to get more stuff than everyone. hate to break it to you, but he who dies with the most toys doesn't win...he who dies with the most toys is still dead.

Not necessarily saying television is evil, there are programs I like, but we have to stop letting our live be run by memes from the idiot box.

Just my two cents.

Bread and circuses.

So who owns the circuses (Propaganda outlets)?

JP Morgan: Our next big media player?
If U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Kevin Carey today approves Tribune Co.'s reorganization plan, enabling it to emerge from Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, New York-based banking giant JP Morgan Chase will become a significant media player, owning more television stations than any major network and becoming America's second largest newspaper publisher.

JP Morgan Chase was one of Sam Zell's leading banks, helping fund the real estate baron's $8.2 billion buyout in December 2007 to take Chicago-based Tribune from a publicly held company to one that's private.

JP Morgan is the administrator of $8.57 billion in senior debt against Tribune and itself holds about $1 billion of that.

JP Morgan Chase already owns a majority stake in Irvine, Calif.-based Freedom Communications, publisher of The Orange County (Calif.) Register, 25 other daily newspapers and operator of eight television stations.

And last year, JP Morgan Chase took over Yardley, Pa.-based Journal Register Co., publisher of 19 daily newspapers....

If it takes control of Tribune today, JP Morgan will now oversee 54 U.S. daily newspapers, the largest being the Los Angeles Times, making it the country's second largest daily newspaper publisher after Gannett.

JP Morgan will also own 31 television stations, surpassing the number of TV stations owned by CBS and News Corp....


This is nothing new for J. P. Morgan. According to the U.S. Congressional Record February 9, 1917, Morgan asked 12 experts to select the most influential newspapers in the United States and sufficient number of them to control generally the policy of the daily press in the United States.

The USA has been saturated with Bankster Propaganda for close to a century.

Political parties are a means to keep the people devided while the elite do what they want. We are nothing more then peons to them. All they do is throw us a bone once in a while to keep us from rising up and taking what is ours.

Why is it a retail chian with 300 employees can rake in $2mil a month and pay them minimum wage? When another company with 300 employeess can make $2mil a year and pay there employees $50k a year. The profits are on top of all over head. One is union and the other isnt. I know one person that works for the retail chain and another person that works in the automotive industry. Meanwhile the manufacturing base is moving to China to increase thier bottom line so the ceos can line thier pockets.

Durring the great depresion Henry Ford payed his empoyees an unpresidented $5 a day. People thought he was nuts but he thought if he payed them a living wage they'd buy his cars. In todays society that kind of thinking no longer applies greed has taken over. I belive capitalism has become canibalistic and will destroy it self.
