What began as an event has become an era. What began as a concussion has become a cancer; a societal mental illness, collective amnesia, seeing but not seeing, knowing, while knowing nothing, all the symptoms of the illness are present, still -- we claim to be all right, pretending it's not so, when it is so.
Imagine any other country on Earth staking claim to this country's foreign policy. Claiming the right to arbitrarily interfere militarily in any corner of the world. What if China was to launch a volley of cruise missiles into Seoul? The roll call of nations who've operated such bellicose military regimes is short and unattractive.
We're expected to believe the made for TV reasons with corporate rerun understanding. Behold the media colossus, standing straddled over the left and right of self-generating public opinion. The truth is" whatever they say it is, because Winston, two and two make five, do you understand?
From Business Insider Feb11, 2011 -- "Looks Like Ross Perot Was Right About the "Giant Sucking Sound'":
Perot is famous (among other things) for his statement during the 1992 presidential campaign that if NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement) was not a two way street would create a "giant sucking sound" of jobs going south to the cheap labor markets of Mexico.
Both of Perot's opponents (George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton) argued that NAFTA would create jobs in the U.S. because of business expansion.
Both Republicans and Democrats wildly supported these swindles and the swindles which have followed. These alleged Free Trade articles codify into law, favorable business arrangements, claiming the right to these conditions" forever!
It reminds me of a story about a small town out west and someone was rustling a rancher's cattle. The ranchers banded together and hired themselves a sheriff to find these rustlers. Yet despite the sheriff's efforts, he always seemed to be at the wrong place at the wrong time and the rustler's always managed to get away. The ranchers held a secret meeting and came to a decision. It seemed the ranchers thought the rustlers were always a bit too lucky and the sheriff, always a bit too unlucky. So to prove their point, the ranchers hung the sheriff and the rustling stopped.
The Business Insider's admission of "Gee, 30 million jobs lost and I guess, you guys were right, and the rustlers got clean away!" We've witnessed a decade of financial mismanagement and fraud, along with a decade of military adventurism. As the corporate media explain, "gosh, we really thought there were WMDs; boy, is their egg on our face. Gosh, who would have thought Wall Street executives were crooked? Gosh, who could have known, mortgage lenders would game the system?"- See more at: click here
