An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
Archive for 14 May 2012
Apparently, someone in Middleton, New Jersey doesn’t much like me. Why? I have no idea. I’m a rather nice person, love animals, and treat people as well as I can, even when they don’t deserve it. I believe in God, Jesus is my Savior, and I love my country, my family, and my friends. So, when I get a comment to moderate, and read what it says, I was quite surprised. Evidently, my ‘fan’ was Googling “scott walker is lying moron” and came across my little corner of the blog world.
It seems instead of attempting to find someone who agrees with his/her point of view, he/she felt it necessary to share his/her view of…..not Scott Walker, on this post….but of me, personally.
MAJOR LANGUAGE WARNING!
This is going to be another extremely long day. I typically don’t do much on Sundays, other than go to church, and maybe nap, but since I’m not at home, and didn’t make it to church (lack of appropriate attire is one reason….don’t think they’d appreciate me showing up in baggie sweats and an NRA ‘Don’t Tread On Me’ t-shirt), I was put to work. Cleaning. UGH! Actually, I put myself to work, but some things needed to be done, so we did them. We’re all pretty amazed at the results. I won’t go into the reasons things had to be done, but suffice it to say, it was a priority.
Anyway, I am slurping coffee, attempting to get at least one eye open, and going through emails. I got a link to something I found quite interesting, and pretty much agree with it, with one exception….I don’t think voting for Ron Paul is a good idea. Other than that….I have to say that yes, our lame stream media is nothing more than a government run propaganda machine, in the same vein that the media of Nazi Germany was, or the state run media in Venezuela.
The elites are masters of propaganda. They have at their beck and call an army of “journalists” who never stray from the official state line for fear of being ostracized. They eagerly and happily spread lies and half-truths in order to gain and then keep their seats near the halls of power. Those who stray from the party line (Helen Thomas) are harshly dealt with.
They have learned that the more lies they tell, the more lies we believe. And the more lies we believe, the more dependent we become. Conversely, the fewer myths, lies and deceptions we succumb to, the less dependent — and, therefore, the freer — we are.
If you watch the news, read the papers, either print or online, no doubt you’ve notice a serious deterioration in the quality of the ‘news’. Instead of all the facts, we get slant, from all the outlets. The majority, however, slant so far to the left with their propaganda, it’s difficult to know what real anymore. The lack of reporting is just as bad as flat out lying. Those who actually pay attention have seen a great many omissions in what most would consider vital information pertaining to the story that’s being ‘reported’. But since it doesn’t fit into their agenda, and that of the current administration, it gets left out, or the spin is so blatant, you get dizzy just hearing it….kind of like going a few rounds in a dryer. Just one example of the media ‘in the tank’ for the administration would be the recent WaPo column by a total Obama suck up. *shakes head*
When confronted with a challenge to the established belief system, the mind closes off. When this happens, the individual employs avoidance behavior, writes off the new knowledge as conspiracy theory and labels it as kooky, insane or stupid. The information is then dismissed, never to be considered again, even when the facts support the new knowledge.
The esoteric purpose of propaganda is to extract wealth and labor illegally as concealed involuntary servitude. The people who use propaganda to persuade the populace against their best interests create myths and sell them as benefits.
Have you ever had, what started out as, what you THOUGHT was a rational conversation with a liberal? Within minutes, confronted with the truth, the majority will totally become unhinged. Recent videos of the OWS crowd proves that point with no need for explanation. You can find them anywhere on the net, unless, of course, some underhandedness has occurred, which you KNOW it does! YouTube is notorious for pulling videos , especially when the rabid leftist complain. Let a conservative say that something is highly offensive, and you get either silence, or ‘it’s protected by the 1st Amendment. Funny how that works, eh? Google apparently is another arm of the socialist movement known as the Democrat Party, with the head, Obama/Washerwoman-Schultz, pulling the strings. Or would that be George Soros? Uh oh! A conspiracy theory. tsk tsk tsk
So, anyway, the column has a list of lies, covering a variety of topics, from The War on Terror to The economy is improving. One topic of interest is There is a difference between the Republican Party and the Democratic Party. In today’s parties, some might agree. In a way, I do as well. All we have to do is look at the candidate we were stuck with in 2008, and to a degree, who THEY have decided our candidate is this time around. I know of very few people who actually supported either one. The elites at the top are actually quite similar, however, us rank and file out here in the REAL world, are quite different from each other. The majority of us stand on principle. The head honchos blow with the wind. Quite disturbing actually, which is why the Tea Party is so vital to all upcoming elections. No, we are NOT fading away. We are still out here, doing our best to not only take our country back, but the party of Reagan as well. The reason you don’t see us out there, like you you do the OWS types, is because the majority on our side either work, or have family obligations which prevents us from traveling distances, not to mention, we don’t get financial support from ANY organizations to bus us in for rallies. We foot our own bills, and unlike the unionistas who get bused (and in most cases, paid) in to protest something or other, of people who are just handed a sign, and paid to carry it for the cameras.
The one item I have an issue with is A vote for Ron Paul is a vote for Obama. Actually, it is. I think Ron Paul is a smart cookie….when it comes to domestic issues. However, his foreign policy has turned off a large number of people, including me. We stand by our allies, not throw them to the wolves, as the Obama administration has. I think he’d make an excellent Secretary of Treasury though.
So, no, I do not believe “A vote for either Mitt Romney or Obama is a vote for continued and reinforced fascism.“ We can’t do this in just one election cycle, and we have to start somewhere. Getting Obama out of office, and in turn, removing all those freakin’ czars, reversing the numerous ‘executive orders’ that ‘go around Congress’, and getting a majority in both the House and the Senate is just the first step to restoring our Constitutional Republic.
The Lee Plan Offers a Clear Choice for Americans
It has been over three years (1,111 days to be precise) since the U.S. Senate last passed a budget. The last time Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) fulfilled his legal responsibility, Conan was still on NBC, Tea Parties hadn’t come together and the iPad hadn’t yet been introduced. This is one of the biggest abdications of power we have seen on the part of our government in modern time. And there is no excuse. The Senate needs only 51 votes to pass a budget. Democrats have had well over that for President Obama’s entire term, yet they refuse to even offer a plan.
Let’s be clear. The Senate must pass a budget if we are going to halt Washington’s disastrous habit of overspending, overborrowing and overtaxing our fragile economy. While liberals sit on the sidelines saying ‘no,’ conservatives are offering solutions.
Representative Paul Ryan (R-WI), Senator Pat Toomey (R-PA) and others have courageously put credible and thoughtful plans on the table. But today, I am happy to report that a member of the Senate has put forward an unprecedented new plan that directly confronts all of the major economic challenges our nation faces.
