“There are three types of lies — lies, damn lies, and statistics.” ― Benjamin Disraeli
AMERICA – WAKE UP!
Astounding what it is we all read in the newspapers or listen to on television news today. We in America obtain the broken-down and edited versions of the news. This is done for the sponsors and other corporate involvement in direct relationship with the particular media group dispersing the event or news.
Oh, you already know that, you say – Well then, why would you sponsor such a travesty by purchasing their products, or repeating their bullshit? Or, if you, as an American, acknowledge what the truth is, then why have you not discussed the situation with your Representative, Congressman, or Senator? Or is your truth indeed their truth – television dominates your life? Too bad, you are part of America’s problem, so shut the hell up, get it right, and do something!
For many corporations today, the public knowing the truth is unacceptable and certainly marginal when in reference to the paradigm of profits! Of concern here is the fact there is a mere five corporations that control all of the commercialized media news in America and Abroad. . . Yes, deregulation does have its downfall, this being an excellent example.
– So what we have here is that fantastically overweight individual, say 650 pounds of fat. This person shoves fork-full after fork-full of food, meat, vegetables, pudding, all of it into their mouth daily. Later this person dies, everyone is grieved, and everyone makes the statement this person, an over-eater, and someone should have helped this individual out. —
Back to the news. This situation, one can attest through research, becomes nothing more or less than favorable-manipulation. Nazi Germany understood the ideology of such rhetoric rather than discussing the actual-truth of the news event. The actual event may, and often does, reveal too much of the truth, and that in accord with this ideological paradigm, should not be given to the public – EVER.
HERITAGE AND THE WELFARE RANCHERS
So here it comes, by the crate-full – Misinformation and lies. The lowest of the low in misinformation is when these same media groups thrive on America’s heritage, within a misinformed context.
These media people, with their corporate sponsors (often associated with Big AG, Oil Companies, Mining Conglomerates, Energy Companies, et al.), try to make the pretense of this disgusting misrepresentation fit the even more disgusting revamped heritage of the past. For this editorial, it is seen quite often within the culture of what we call Welfare Ranching.
References abound to the lies given to the public by these self-given-categorical-rancher’s, of being hard working ranchers similar to years past – the western cowboy spirit, the naturalness of the Indian’s of the past co-habitation with nature – but in fact is an outstanding lie media and Big AG have simply made-up, as the truth of the matter would piss-off most taxpayer’s to the point of taking action. The similarity, and obvious, Richard Nixon comes to mind here. . .
After all, confuse the truth with bullshit, or leave an important part of the context out, and the subject becomes nothing more than a vast grey-area of doubt within many minds. . .
In Reality – the Truth – Welfare Rancher’s contribute nothing (i.e. – Less than 1% at .41% sales receipts in 2011, then again in 2012; and yet, $2.4 billion dollars direct from taxpayer money in stipends, grants, and misc. funds given to them in the same years, combined) to taxpayer’s except an increase in the yearly debt crisis cycle.
American’s have come to the point of departure and divestment. Many of us simply acknowledge the disgusting situation, or some deny it in total; after all, it is much easier to go do the simple things in life, rather than take time to become part of a change for the better. Right? Well no, that is wrong. . .
America has become that overweight being as mentioned above. America is dying and many, many American’s are doing nothing about it. Excuse’s do prevail here, many, but none valid.
BUREAU OF LAND MANAGEMENT AND DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR
And why should American’s be concerned over this information and lies? As taxpayer’s it is costing us in the billions of dollars yearly (several hundred billions simply from misinformation, and that is all the taxpayer’s receive for their money, the lies, because nothing else is given to taxpayer’s from that money) – make no doubt it is part of the overall Debt Crisis Problem of today.
If the welfare rancher programs discontinued, as they offer taxpayer’s nothing in return (referenced quite well scientifically, economically, and through the GAO office), equity as well as our environment and wild horse herd’s will be left alone – as our heritage would then be reflected appropriately — and well should be when all the lies and misinformation taken away and then shunned by the majority of American’s!
But the fact is, and has been for quite sometime, the Department of the Interior should be downsized, due to lack of control. The Bureau of Land Management should be shut down in total, due to too much mismanaged Public Lands, incompetent management, and illegal activity, and too costly to the American Taxpayer’s of this land of Ours – America!
The conclusion here is simple – AMERICA WAKE UP – DO SOMETHING FOR CHANGE – START BY DEMANDING HONESTY FROM LEGISLATOR’S, AND NOT THE SAME OLD BUSINESS AS USUAL – BECAUSE THAT, in truth beyond all truth, IS WHAT’S DESTROYING AMERICA!
As well, perhaps DEMAND TERM LIMITS ON ALL POLITICAL OFFICE’S!
