Opinions for the week of 5/23 - Part 1

It's about that time again. Politics are running dirty as the East River in NYC and the flow is getting dirtier than a Saigon Whore on New Years eve...

Has anyone seen this guy Tom DeLay? I felt like getting in the shower after I heard about some of what he's done. Other than getting his hands on casinos, bribes and free plane tickets, etc... He also has his hand very deeply in the committee for NASA's watchdogs and is doing his best to make sure that the money that is supposed to be spent at NASA is getting diverted to fund the war in Iraq.

Have you ever heard of a "blog" or a "weblog"? (You're reading one now) These weblogs created by journalists across the world have begun to take over as people's main source of news for reasons like ABC deciding that the Iraq war is no longer newsworthy and they're not going to cover it when they don't have to. Watching CBS's "60 Minutes" program last Sunday night, they covered gang violence in California prisons, "On Bullsh*t" a book about how there is so much B.S. around us and people are taking the wrong sources of information to heart.

I found this to be quite ironic as CBS was blaming itself for covering what THEY called BS and how other media outlets cover stuff that is basically bullshit. Basically the psychological effect of this is that CBS becomes the sacrificial lamb pointing out their downfalls about how they spread bullshit all the time and then turned it into an advertisement for their network at the same time because they were the ones pointing out the fact that all the others are bullshitting them too and CBS being the first to cover this piece of literature in this way puts them above all others. Sadly enough, that's the trained psychological reaction.

Something made my skin crawl that Sunday night as there has been a piece of intelligence floating around that basically got leaked about how the President massaged documents to help us engage in the Iraq war and gave Britain more reason to participate along with us. CBS didn't cover this AT ALL. This is one of those kinds of news stories that gets shoved to page 13 in your newspapers and the importance of the story is curtailed and people that stick to "mainstream media" end up not seeing just how important these news stories are.

This particular news story has been the "talk of the town" on just about EVERY blog and is blowing up all over the internet. What does the story really mean though? Well, first of all, it means that the war we are engaged in Iraq is based on a lie. The intelligence that was given was massaged by high level officials in OUR government. Secondly, it means that your tax dollars are being wasted and your kids are being sent to die in an illegal war. $5 BILLION A MONTH..

So why do they need to get John Bolton in the U.N. so fast? Israel seems to think that Iran is close to the "Point of no return" however there is absolutely no evidence that Iran is perusing it's Nuclear Proliferation project for use in weaponry. What do you get when you put a hard line reformist in the UN, given bad information about Iran and the possibility of Nuclear weapons? War... Shortly after Bolton is confirmed there have been MANY sources reporting that war with Iran is imminent.

The problem here is that Americans have turned a blind-eye to all this corruption. Psychologically, many Americans still feel pretty "burned" over what happened on September 11, 2001. The president may have gotten SOME loyalty of citizens out of this but is losing it VERY fast, his approval rating is at an all time (for him) and 12 year low.

There is a whole plethora of people to blame for selling us this "bullshit" but you have to start with the mainstream media. They have held back on the president by "softballing" him with easy questions, bought the pre-produced news reports that the White House is putting out and it's pretty obvious of that by watching CNN/Fox/MSNBC and on and on... They're all turning into another MTV. Nothing but a waste of airtime. They might as well start airing our news "Entertainment Tonight" style, if ya ask me, ABC is ready to start doing that soon anyway.

Newsweek folded under pressure last week about a story they printed in which the Qu'ran was desecrated in a Guantanimo Bay prison facility where the item was defaced and placed in the toilet as well as flushing it in the toilet. After Muslims got so pissed at us the WH made them retract this newsworthy story saying it "wasn't true"... Odd, what do you call this? ... Newsweek obviously destroyed any credibility they had left with people that took the time to research this more "in-depth".

Fox News Channel ratings are plummeting (if anybody cares); 1.4 million before the war to 504,000 as of this month. I guess people are getting sick of getting lied to and MAYBE some of the republicans out there care that Jeff Gannon had ties to Fox News Channel and since most of the republicans I know are slightly bigoted, they wouldn't want a homosexual in their 'group'. By the way, that's the fastest viewer-ship drop-off in cable TV news history.

Apathy.. I was recently admitted to the hospital for heart complications. By the last 3 days of being in there, they were trying to shove ANTI-DEPRESSANTS down my throat. My doctor refused to bargain with my issue of anxiety and treating it with an anti-anxiety pill, he stormed out of my room like a little kid because I wouldn't take Zoloft or one of the other pills that he's getting kickbacks on.. Mind you, again, I was in the hospital for a heart problem. At any rate, my point is they're giving out these anti-depressants to people that don't need them and the world is getting doped up on these pills and they just don't give a crap anymore. No, it's not a conspiracy, just ask around, find out how many people you know that take them. It's not just the Anti-depressants that are effecting the life of humans in our culture... The "Magic Bullet" syndrome has taken over so vastly that people are just finding it easier to take the short way out instead of fixing the real problem. Indicative of pure laziness within the masses. ( - See "Pharmaceutical facts" halfway down the page)

Just a note: McDonalds and PepsiCo EACH spend this much money advertising and America got fatter and Diabetes is "running out of control".

Inflation? In the time that 'Dubya has been in office, it's up 38%. YES, I said THIRTY EIGHT PERCENT.. The deficit is out of control and is spiraling dismally out of control. There was just a $38B war funding bill signed and it's just gonna get worse.. Like I said, $5B a MONTH. Where will it end? I say impeachment.

So, why won't the president be impeached?? Congress realized this lie after it was to late to do anything about it at their level without massive amounts of impeachments. Mainstream media won't push for anything like this as it's their fault for buying the lies that the president sold them pre-packaged for press and sold it to America like the newest and best thing since sliced bread. Basically this means that you can expect this corruption to escalate to heights that will rival that of the moon. The lies will continue to be sold to the press as the president feels fit to sell it to them, and congress will continue to address menial issues like "Terri Schaivo" and her right to die.Nonetheless, they don't seem to be interested in protecting our civil rights and the constitution of the united states (no caps for a reason)..

I was watching NBC Nightly news the other day as Tim Russert gave some new poll numbers on Bush. In comparison to a similar poll, NBC padded theirs by 6% to make Bush come out at 48%. For the record folks, the number *IS* 42%. My laughter begins when they optimistically lash out saying things like "Almost half the country is still behind him" Statistically, MORE than HALF the country is against him. even at their padded 48%. I now know why they stage those town hall meetings for him and don't let tax-paying protesters in; they boo him off the stage. Something like what happened this weekend ... Let's just nail it down to nuts and bolts, you can come up with all the polls you want to and change the results by change the demographic surroundings, it all boils down to two things. One, the president LIED. 2.) The president is NOT doing his job, representing the interests of his bosses, US!!! The president's boss is NOT big corporate USA although it seems that is who he's answering to these days..

In closing, I'd like to wish you the best of luck and hope that you won't allow your tax dollars to keep paying for things like this without learning more by doing more research and learning more about where your country is going. Day after day we ARE losing control of our democracy by not doing more to protect it and question our leaders to things like events that happened JUST THIS WEEKEND... Bush gets booed out of a school of CHRISTIAN LIBERAL ARTS for mixing politics and religion in his policies, Laura Bush got mobbed by Jews (NOT ZIONISTS) begging for the release of a prisoner illegally held, Afghani prisoners being tortured in Gitmo (where I'll be sent off to after writing this letter and sending it), 10 Iraqi officials "accidentally" being killed by US troops, a little girl being orphaned after speaking out against the president and HomeLndSec deporting her parents as punishment. This all happened IN ONE WEEKEND.. I urge someone to tell me what we've done in this world to balance for such acts of monstrosity on YOUR behalf. We are America..

Of course, this is just what I have to say, the facts speak for themselves. I urge you to put down the newspaper and the TV remote and step slowly over to a more reliable source for your news.... Ahh hell, "RUN FOR YOUR LIVES" (as said by US official during the recent WH plane scare)

Anonymously yours..... AB
