Need I say that Arrogances and self awareness seldom goes hand and hand? Nevertheless, this is what we have been getting from the fools in Washington and the Rush Limbaugh’s for decades. They are like a band of marauders, plundering and pillaging as they destroy everything within their sight, and aren’t they the idiots that we trusted with legislating the laws to protect us from this kind of mess. Jack, we don’t care who they officially have in charge right now. Because the next time we go into the voting booth, it wouldn’t be based on some stupid ideology that continues to allow our wallet to be made in China and India, while wondering where our money and job have gone! I guess we can regretfully say that the joke is on us? Don’t blame me, I’m just the messenger. Perhaps the Republican Party doesn’t care who the messenger is, because they continue to mostly blame everyone but themselves, as our Country slowly whittle away from their incompetents.
Here is my take on this matter; earlier today on the usual morning news shows, I heard everyone complaining about how ferociously our economy was on fire. Needless to say, that when the economy was being put on fire, everyone watched, as we heard little to nothing from anyone. So if you agree that the Republican Party was the arsonists, and has now become the fiendish Party of No. No meaning, I’m not going to help you put the fire out. While you must agree that the Media are the Party of the chaos agents. They both like to spread fear, and create as much panic and controversy as they can at every given opportunity. They both like to get a kick out of quoting this Country most clairvoyant individual, or should I say the most automatons figures. I don’t know how you feel about this, but to me they both are running this Country in the ground with their, me first, white-knuckle like attitude.
The Republican Party has been put on the life support machine by the People during the last two elections, but it appears that the media want to keep them alive. Somewhere along the line, the words like fair and balance, honesty and integrity got lost. This is not meant to be an indictment, but design merely as a fair and reasonable observation.
Just take a look at this: when the exit polls came out the night of the election that showed John Kerry ahead of George Bush 51% to 48%, the market drop immediately. After finding out that the exit polls was wrong, the market turned around immediately. This tells you that the market loves the Republicans, and here’s why, they know that the rich is going to get richer under a Republican administration, while allowing the poor to get poorer. Free trade is the code words for allowing big corporations to ship jobs oversea for cheaper wages, and sell their goods back to us for a bigger profit. Don’t be fooled, they are selling this Country out, It’s that Simple folks!
In closing: the News Media are becoming a practical joke! If CNN find it important to ask us about anything that Dick Cheney had to say, they need to change the title of their show to, BS me, I don’t care. CNN allowed Dick Cheney to spread his mess around the world. Where were the tough follow up question, huh? That was an extremely piss poor moderating performance by John King.
