Information must not just be delivered but also absorbed.  Whatever is delivered to us  is  not really information  until it is processed  through the filter of our consciousness.


1. The celebrated   package of words

Had anyone noticed how our illustrious media  agrees on a specific  set of words when they describe movements. When Tea- Party was running amok  the media described them as 'angry, fed up,  organized, energetic, politically savvy, powerful, all-inclusive,  worth of being treated seriously' etc.etc. Current Occupy movement is characterized as 'disorderly,  filthy,scattered, irrational, having no leadership, misdirected' etc. All- in-all our media is  afraid as Hell to say anything positive about  our own children. And of course, no compassion whatsoever.

2.  Funny cults

Recently some pastor  called the Mormon religion a cult.  Of course, J. Huntsman  immediately retorted and all out media went up in arms. The funny truth here is that not only  pastor was right- Mormon religion is a cult (sorry, folks, in any other rational society if someone claims  Jesus and/or angels visiting him in the woods, exorcism is in order) but the whole US  evangelical Christianity is a cult because  the way Jesus is treated by them can only be called a  blasphemy.


3. The way we  fight


It is  morbidly funny to watch the Demparty pretending to  fight  for the people while a) not mentioning wars; b) not mentioning  health care law; c) not mentioning poverty; d) not mentioning regulations and e) always saying that ' we are like GOP but better.'

4.  The way we deceive


It is  also morbidly funny to watch the GOP  trying desperately  to show that they are really a party, that they stay for something, that they have ideology, etc. The more they try to do that to less  sense they infer because their only message is, 'buy me, buy me, buy me'. They can't help it.
