one thing is for sure: the plutocracy (who own the us government and the media) has an unlimited belief in the gullibility of americans. and rightly so. the american sheep believe every-single-thing that echoes out of their tv and radio speakers. "four legs good, two legs bad!" repeat it with me folks, "four legs good, two legs bad!" the pigs who own this country are fleecing the american flock of sheep into believing anything.
i can't stomach watching corporate media. i can't stand listening to any politician. all these two things offer are cleverness through euphemisms, manipulation through disinformation, and brute force -- not much intelligence, logic and wisdom happening these days in the halls of the usa empire. after all, "politics is the machinations of the stunted, damaged souls and third rate minds who hanker for power" i have a low tolerance for bullshit. so i find myself spending less time wallowing in the pit of toxic sewage called politics, and spending more time enjoying the more meaningful aspects of life. i also find myself revisiting the logic of george carlin.
a quote worth highlighting...
"now you probably noticed that i don't feel about that war the way we were told we were supposed to feel about that war; the way we were ordered and constructed by the united states government to feel about that war. you see, i tell ya, my mind doesn't work that way. i've got this real moron thing i do. it's called THINKING
. and i'm not a very good american because i like to form my own opinions. i don't just roll over when i'm told to. sad to say most americans just roll over [knock] on command. not me. i have certain rules i live by. my first rule: i don't believe anything the government tells me. nothing. zero. and i don't take very seriously the media or the press in this country - who in the case of the persian gulf war were nothing more than unpaid employees of the department of defense, and who most of the time function as an unofficial public relations agency for the united states government." --- george carlin
