You sit back and listen to the endless parade of news stories about this and that and you wonder. What does it take to get Americans upset so they will actually use the brain God gave them, and turf the idiots running their country? I mean seriously, the Congress is pissed because the NY Times released a story about the feds monitoring financial transactions. Something that Administration officials discussed in open hearings years earlier.
Still it makes you wonder at why?
Could it be to send a message that a Free Press will only be allowed to function as long as it plays ball with the Administration in Washington? I mean isn’t that the same as putting a muzzle on them? Not that the Media per se does report the truth anyways, but sometimes they have little choice and I am almost certain that when they do report the truth. News Anchors and Upper Management types are squirming pretty hard. Yet it seems to me that as much as they fail, there is so much that does make it out, why aren’t the streets filled with protestors?
Why isn’t every street corner in all major USA Cities not littered by charred remains of Old Glory right now like they were during the Viet Nam War era? The Democractic National Convention in Chicago?
I mean those 20 somethings in the 60’s and 70’s are 30 years older now. They are the power makers, so how did things get this screwed up? After all aren’t the ones who nearly passed a constitutional amendment the same one’s who were on Berkley burning flags 30 odd years ago? When did they suddenly forget about Free Speech?
So why aren’t the streets littered with protest today? Has resolution after resolution, news report after news report, about right losses and censors finally won the day? Are people just that apathetic or are they that stupid?
Watchedand there is a growing movement by some to urge a boycott of this falls elections if electronic voting is used. So let me see, by not voting you will change what? Anything?
If you truly are upset about all that is going on, then boycotting an election has to be the stupidest idea yet. Instead of staying home and letting more George Bush wannabee’s get elected, people should be straining for November to arrive so they can trot, not walk, but run to their local voting booth.
