I'm fascinated with the motivation behind the news media belaboring these not-so-wonderful news items.
It feels like the puppet master is jerking our strings. I wish he'd give it a rest.
Thankfully, I'm far from most of the madness. I moved from America 5 years ago and loving it. Part of my sanity is returning now that I've weaned myself of the Corporate Party media kool-aid. I still get some of it on the Internet, but I get to control what I read.
The "God" particle? Give me a break! No particle could ever create a universe. That's putting the cart before the horse.
Tawdry details of failed marriages? Yuck!
Controversy in a murder case pumped up on steroids? Double yuck!
Government lies and cover-ups which the media treats as the latest and greatest whiz bang golly gee whiz? Typical. The Corporate Party is the problem and they like giving things different names to keep us hypnotized. Following the George Orwell template. Kind of like 9/11 -- more wool pulled over our eyes.
I guess the big fuss over Obamacare has me crosseyed. The Supreme Court seems to be bought by the Corporate Party just as are most of Congress and the past several presidents. Every ploy to force more tyranny onto the American public has me livid.
It makes me feel like the quadraplegic, strapped into bed and force-fed drugs so they can't complain, but kept alive for the Social Security payments -- a perpetual cash cow to be thrown away when the national debt reaches critical mass.
The media seems to dish out several flavors of poison:
* Distractions -- to keep the mindless hoards entertained while they're being raped.
* Divisiveness -- to stroke the egos of disparate groups so that they will fight amongst themselves instead of search for the hidden third party stirring up the pot of discontent.
* Lies -- just enough truth to make it seem plausible.
* Ridicule -- to keep anyone from straying into dangerous questions which might pull back the curtain and reveal the madman working the levers of our own enslavement.
Sound paranoid. Hey, a little healthy paranoia is good for survival, especially when it's sharply-honed with reality and facts.
