“A truth now and then projecting into the ocean of newspaper lies serves like headlands to correct our course. Indeed, my skepticism as to everything I see in a newspaper makes me indifferent whether I ever see one.” – Thomas Jefferson
If ever there was a time for our mainstream media to rise to new heights by telling We The People the truth, the real truth and all of the truth, it is now.
Leading a Senate that has refused to shoulder their responsibilities for many years, Reid has led this pompous group of pretenders down a pathway where nothing deemed necessary has been accomplished, but tons of legislation that only serves to burden our suffering economy has been enacted. Now, in a moment reflective of the insanity that has gripped our Senate, Reid tells that he is planning to cancel the usual 4th of July recess in order that he might show all the world how powerful he is………NOT !!
One might think that mainstream media would tire of covering Reid’s foibles but it seems that they still retain the blinders and lack of spine issued them when they were first hired. Indeed, in reading the several prime sources of our propagandist media, it is easy to conclude that they all receive their marching instructions from the same place and it becomes more clear each day that telling the news without bias is something they are not able to accomplish – perhaps it is the rings in their collective noses, or it may be that their computers all have the same glitch in which real truths, real history are not allowed to be put forth as realities which might inspire We The People to conclude that those we elect serve a different master, certainly not the demonstrated needs of We The People !
Probably the greatest shame in all of the media and Reid manipulations is the death of what was once America’s pride – the vast middle class. You might remember this group of people as the ones who manned our many-faceted war machines in the first World War as the goals of the Kaiser to enslave Europe were thwarted. Middle-class Americans fought and died that most of the world might be free from tyranny. Barely a generation later that same middle class rose again to defeat the forces of Hitler, Mussolini and Tojo as this Axis sought to enslave all the world. When the war was ended, they returned home to man the factories as this nation became the world’s greatest producer of things – or you might recall that those who elected to remain on the farm somehow managed to increase their production to the point where America fed itself and much of the world. Others worked in labs where new and marvelous medication was developed and many of the ills that plagued all the world were able to be controlled or eradicated all because of American creativity – and those who were the hands-on creators were our great and proud middle class. As innovation upon innovation sprang from the fertile minds of the free American people , the bounty of our production was shared with all the world. Americans approved several plans to rebuild the nations we had conquered and foreign aid was widely extended – such was our goal to display freedom as the great and wonderful resource is was…………..and as we now learn from Reid’s agenda, all that America ever was is being trampled, we see Obama visiting other nations telling them the he is sorry for what we did to them, that we have been a very bad neighbor and that we must change all that we have stood for and adopt a new way of living as espoused by, I suppose, Islam.
Parenthetically, if Islam is as good as some claim, I have to wonder why there have been no world-shaking developments from Islamic nations – no great advances – no great anything……except for oil. Islamic nations have existed far longer that our ‘ upstart ‘ America and it seems that they are not able to allow expressions of the freedoms that have guided America, that they impose restrictive penalties, even death upon their citizens who perform acts that, in many cases, are accepted in America as freedoms . I read their dogma and see that many of the usual freedoms we enjoy are not allowed under their ” loving ” Islam and I have to wonder why their openly cruel treatment of women is not the subject to world condemnation .Our media and our Congress refuse to tell the truth about a group which threatens the world as we know it, indeed, as various groups openly threaten Christians and Jews, that Islam is not subject to critique is a puzzlement..
Perhaps Mr. Reid is simply unaware of this terrible threat in the same manner he is unaware of what his party has done to our nation’s financial strength. He is certainly unable to balance a checkbook or to control spending with s budget since he had declined to produce a budget for over two years and now seeks to cast blame on others. It is understandable that Reid is out-of-touch with the realities behind the problems this nation faces but it is not understandable that all of mainstream media are blind as well.
We can vote to evict members of Congress. Perhaps we should withdraw our support from the media as they cannot live without our backing through subscriptions, daily purchases or patronization of their advertisers.
Mr. Reid, those who follow on his coat-tails and the media who blindly adhere to his line need to sense the wrath of the real Americans as we begin the arduous task of building a new America, founded by those great ideals as expressed in our founding documents and in our churches and synagogues.
There is nothing that a free America cannot accomplish if only the government would get out of the way. In years gone by, Americans knew our history from the first days as this nation was built and expanded – History taught us of the many five and six month long voyages that brought settlers to this new land, we were able to follow the workings of the founders of our nation, we followed George Washington and his ragged men as they fought the best equipped military in all the world, won the battles and secured the freedom we now take so cavalierly. They went to their church or synagogue to give thanks and they took pride in doing all within their power to be sure that the generations to follow would have life a little but less constrained and that the freedoms that were the cement that built this nation would serve as an example to the rest of the world. As new people came from many nations, they eagerly adopted their new nation it’s language it’s laws and they embraced freedom as they joined the ranks of greatness that characterized this very young nation and they were proud. Boy, were they proud!
Our Congress as led by the likes of Harry Reid has done all it can do to shatter all that America ever was. We as Americans, must not allow this to happen. What was our proud historical heritage is no longer being taught as, I suppose, pride in our accomplishments needs to be shattered in order that our minds be filled with the manner and style of pap dictated by the likes of Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi. This thought gives rise to a consideration that, perhaps, America needs to be ruined so that other nations have no ideal form of government to which they might aspire and lacking that shining beacon on the proverbial hill, they may be more easily controlled by the forces dedicated to their oppression. Now, that is a frightening concept – enslavement of the world !!
It is our country. There are none to defend the concept that formed America as the first representative government in all the world but us – We The People.
“So long as the people do not care to exercise their freedom, those who wish to tyrannize will do so; for tyrants are active and ardent and will devote themselves in the name of any number of gods, religious or otherwise, to put shackles upon sleeping men.” – Voltaire – 1764
