Looking Beyond the Smoke and Mirrors.
For many years street hustlers have used a little known method of manipulation and slight of hand to visually distract the audience in such a way as to create an illusion that they can pick and choose what they see and believe.
The sad truth is that our Media have become much like these hucksters, they use psychological tricks to variate an old game that leaves the victim out of cash and wondering what happened.
The media is lying to you every day, but that sounds like the ravings of a crazy person right? [Read more...]
In what appears to be yet another large company there are more layoffs that will certainly add to the unemployment rate with thousands and thousands of new unemployed Americans it is beginning to look like perhaps Mitt Romney was indeed right about the state of the economy.
So, if the President is really going to Get America back to work as he promised to do, then when are we going to see some real movement on the employment numbers, in a period of time where usually there are more jobs available it is very disturbing to see what looks like an increase to somewhere near the 9.2 mark, however it could well be a lot more were everyone to actually be included in the count.
In life love and happiness there must be pizza, otherwise were just dust on the wind.
When you watch the news for more than 20 minutes you might need to make an appointment with a psychiatrist, that is because of the nature of how shocking the news can be these days, back in the old days of journalism (back when they still did the news) there would always be a tasteful component to the news that appears to be a thing of the past.
We watch the way that the media attempt to manipulate the news cycle I mean every week there is this update and they say jobs number look better usually this happens on every Thursday, you see it and you say Really, do they really think anyone really believes that news story is real?
Because before the end of the week, they will also come out with the next news story…
Jobs numbers different what is wrong with these two different news stories?
Simple they are not accurate on the face they are literally and allegedly lies in print.
Why do you think this is?
We may never know for sure why they do it, perhaps they live such disorganized lives that they no longer realize that they are living in an insulated world where they see one hour of time as if it were 24 hours, they think that no one understands the news expect for them.
Sadly they are mistaken and in error the reason why this is true is simple.
People do not watch the news as much as they wish we did.
We don’t care about false news stories because we see the lies, we know the truth when we drive to the store and we see 20 business locations that used to be in business with for rent or for sale signs out we know that the economy is not doing well.
We can see the truth, so when the media lies to us we know it…
We know people in our families that do not have jobs, were helping them make the rent we help them with food, we know the truth so when the media lies to us we know it and you know what else, we don’t respect you when you lie to us.
no one likes to be lied to do they probably even the media does not like it when someone lies to them so why do you think they expect us to believe them when they lie to us.
A great example is when these politicians get up on national TV and they tell a lie and they “Think” that were too stupid to understand what they are doing.
They think that they can refuse to do the will of the American people in the Senate, by not voting on a bill, they think that the American people are too stupid to figure out what they are doing but we are not.
WE know what your doing and we are going to vote your moss back out of your comfortable leather office in Washington just wait till November gets here and see how many of you Senators are left…
Get it because its coming and Voting is the only way that you will come to understand that you put your pants on like everyone else.
We don’t care what you say we watch what you do…
Is Fox extorting money from directv ?
Should Fox be taken over by the government.
While this might sound something of a strange story, apparently there is an ongoing controversy concerning the Fox network and directv. On one side the story is that the evil News corp wants to increase the subscription fees, to a whopping 40 percent higher.
At issue are several channels that the News corp corporation wants to be compensated at a much higher rate, to hear directv tell the story they are allegedly being extorted into paying a much higher price.
You just dont know what to believe, but one thing remains clear, if they do stop cable distribution of those channels then will my bill go down, and more importantly will your bill go down because hey lets face it, we all need a break and in a time when the economy is really doing poorly, I can go outside and watch the grass grow and be just about as entertained as watching news corp…
In fact DirecTV is taking the News Corp Giant to task with the FCC stating that there could be some nasty business going on, (allegedly) and to be honest, it really makes you wonder, who is the provider here and who is the subscriber.
The contract dispute concerns FX, 19 regional sports networks (including Fox Sports West and Prime Ticket here in Los Angeles) and a handful of smaller channels (but not Fox News), News Corp. is leading people to think that its Fox broadcast network would also be dropped next week. “Fox is using misleading advertising informing DirecTV customers that ‘soon, in some markets, you may lose your local Fox station,’” Chang wrote to the FCC. “Even if the Fox cable channels are no longer carried on Nov. 1
No matter where you come down on this dispute, no one wants to pay more and everyone would rather pay less, so I say throw the bums out and cut my bill accordingly, but how much do you want to bet that directv does not want to do that…
This may well be a case of having your cake and eating it too…
Can Rick Perry actually win a presidential race?
Is Rick Perry just another politician?
Can we really afford to have yet another politician in office when we really need a man or woman that is dedicated to restoring America to its former greatness?
Is Rick Perry the right man for the job?
In some ways there are some really serious questions about this man, and there are a lot of things that we just do not know.
You could just say that any man or woman for that matter, is right for the job when so much is at issue.
However can we afford to allegedly make two mistakes in a row, there is a lot at issue the US economy, in fact you could say that even perhaps the economy of the entire world could be at issue. The Constitution of the United States of America is perhaps one of the most important things we have that brings us together,
There is a lot of work to be done, to restore this nation to its once great status, however there are also some things that need to be done and need to be dealt with one of those things is Health care, we do need health care reform, but we do not need the robin hood form of health care.
Robin hood, takes from the rich and gives to the poor, sadly that is just a story in a book in reality those that pretend to do this take from the rich and give to the unions.
The unions never give to the poor, they just donate to political campaigns, (allegedly)
Why story book tales don’t really work in the real world.
If the story book tale were real would it not be a great thing, because in the original story the rich were taking from the poor to establish their rich lifestyle, however that is not exactly what is going on now is it, no however it could be said that some of the rich have their money at the expense of those that are poor. The main thing here is that we work in the frame work of the constitution, that is something that has worked for more than two hundred years.
In the real world the idea of taking from the rich by taxing them and then giving to the poor is just a story book tale it sounds good but in reality it has not worked, just think about what has happened over the last three years. Think about it real hard, what about the teachers that lost all their investments in the car companies that never repaid the money nor repaid the money that the public used to bail them out, yet they want us to buy their cars?
Right like that is something that you want to do?
So again, how can we know for sure, how we can make the right choice for president in the 2012 election?
we know very little about Rick Perry, and one thing we do not know is how he stands on the Constitution, because he used to be a Democrat then switched to Republican to get elected, but what about the Constitution, What about the First Amendment, What about the Second Amendment?
Who will be the next president?
A short time ago one of the big supporters of freedom in America sent a questionnaire, to Candidate for president Rick Perry about where he stands on the Second amendment, which is supported by most Americans, the problem is that we do not know where we stand with this candidate, because Candidate Rick Perry, refused to answer or even pick up the questionnaire, so in reality Rick Perry may not be the Candidate that everyone hopes that he is, because sometimes when we have hope for the future we may not look too hard at where that hope comes from.
The thing is that we must be sure, because America cannot afford to make another mistake.
One thing remains clear, we cannot make another mistake if America is to survive, we must do the right thing at the right time for the right reasons, anything less and we do those that gave their lives to protect the freedom of this nation a great dis service.
Some say that the current president may be incapable of moving to the middle like president Bill Clinton did which resulted in a growth in the economy and a budget surplus, so what does that mean, if you had a man that was poised on a bridge and he said I have two choices, I can come down from here and make a deliberate, attempt to act in the best interest of the American people, or I can just lay my ears back like the donkey that I am and jump off the bridge because my plans did not work the way I hoped they would, (I thought I was doing the right thing) but I was wrong, the difference between the two ideas here is simple.
One man, is interested in the people the other is only interested in his own personal agenda.
Some might call this attitude selfish and well just downright wrong…
Why are we not doing the right thing for the people?
When you think about the dream that has sustained a nation for more than 200 years, you have to consider that men have fought and died, for that freedom…
When you begin to imagine the future of America it is hard to think about what you see in the stock markets today as something that is good leadership. It is hard to imagine that this is hope and change…
When you look at the value of the dollar and the value of the economy and the number of jobs lost, it is obvious that the policies of the last three years just are not working.
Blaming bush is not working…
Blaming S & P is not working…
Blaming everyone for everything is not working…
Why is that?
Simple really it is not leadership…
You cannot lead the world, when you cannot provide leadership examples. In any organization the end result is the entire responsibility of the CEO of that organization, if everything goes right, then that CEO gets a great pay check and they get all the rewards that comes with doing a good job, you never see a CEO come out and say, well sorry our stock had not performed this year, it was the fault of that pretty girl I met last week I was just so distracted that I missed the curve and had a wreck. Yet, when you do that you undermine not only your own ability to lead but also the confidence that everyone else has in your ability to drive a car, let alone the idea that you also have no leadership skill, this nation needs some leadership, someone who will stand up and do the right thing for the American people.
What that means right now is yes to fulfill the oath, to defend the constitution.
When you lead you represent more than just your own thoughts and more than just your own needs or wants, you have to think for that organization, you have to consider more than just your own desires, otherwise how can you lead? There are some needs in this nation that need to be met, this does include health care, however, if it comes down to loosing an election how long will what you have accomplished remain? Not long at all, simply because the cost of such infamy, is too high. In order to truly lead we must have the ability to look beyond the small borders of what we “think” is right and learn what is really right, that means that to continue in failure is not really an option at all here, we cannot just keep on trying to get a different outcome by doing the same things over and over again, that is madness.
There are some good leadership ideas out there, starting with a Flat Tax, to get the revenue that will pull us out of this tail spin, a fair tax, as they call it is not only fair, but prudent, it would bring in Billions of dollars, but that is not enough because we have seen what happens when a lot of money is available they spend it, yes, just like many people would do, if they suddenly had a lot of money and were not used to having that much money they would spend it on dumb things, however, we cannot afford to do that, we are more than the sum of our fears, and the means of our minds, we are America, that means that not only are we what we represent ourselves to be but also we are our future generations of Americans.
What this means is that we simply cannot just give up and say oh well, we messed it up and now its just over, well that is just not the case at all, what needs to happen next is simple, we do need to pass Cut, Cap Balance, and Flat Tax, that is what the doctor ordered and that is what will get us out of this mess, if the president is not capable of leading then the congress is required to do it for him. It is time that we the people stand up for what is right, because we do not have the time to wait for the 2012 election we must act now, that means calling your congressman and state senators, and making it known to them that we need, a Cut Cap Balance and Flat Tax bill. It is not that hard to do, really you just put one foot in front of the other…
It is the intent of the heart that counts here and that intent must stand for liberty and freedom for all, not just the wants of the few but the needs of the many.
“Rick Perry: It Would Be ‘Almost Treasonous’ For Ben Bernanke To Print More Money Before Election”
You know what, I wonder if it would actually be a criminal act.
In this type of economy, hyper inflation is a real problem, printing money would be the straw that could break the camels back so to speak.
