Thank you for posting – s & f.
Off subject, but relevant given the slanderous nature of many replies.
I watched Thrive yesterday, and there’s a bit about how those with all the power have set up an army of obedient civilians to defend their actions.
These civilians, these patriotic, worker bees, believe what they are told by federal officials, and their pundits on the News, and lord have mercy on
anybody trying to tell them different.
It is just so much easier to submit to the programming, and to ostracise anybody w/an opposing view. It’s done all day long, don’t you hear it
on the radio, on TV, 24/7? There’s a reason why the Bill O’Reillys and the Rush Limboughs of the world are celebrated, and why I can’t name
somebody at the other end of the spectrum. It’s funny, or dare I say, entertaining to ridicule the nonconformist, the minority, the $hit disturber.
Just shut up and get in line like the rest of us! Who do you think you are with such wild ideas? You’re not special!
Remember when it was just ABC, NBC, and CBS? Remember being ordered up off the couch by a grandparent, and having to manually change the channel?
Remember when Vietnam was spoken about by sober adults who promised each other it would never happen again?
Now? Now it’s who do we bomb next? Who do we send the grunts off to shock and awe. Now they don’t even show you the flag-draped coffins. Where
are all the (embedded) reporters now?
They’ve changed careers. They’ve let the News anchors drive the story. You know what the talking heads are? They’re the company commanders in
the civilian army that lead the charge against dissent.
You want something to verify? Verify if Susan Lindauer is only the 2nd Non-Arab American ever charged on the Patriot Act.
Why wasn’t she allowed to speak for 10 years? Were all her phone calls taped by the FBI?
I guess if we don’t find her in the 9/11 Commission Report than she, and anybody believing what she says, must be insane.
