The job of our current politicians and the media is to spin doctor the needs of their backing corporation. They bring to the forefront of debate those issues which most greatly affects the dollar value of their backing corporation's stock ...they talk about those issues which actually affect the average American with a tone of sacrificial trade-off...downplaying them and speaking in notes and quips reminding one of sports banter. The same way team owners shirk off electrocuting dogs and fighting pitbulls to punching girlfriends and children in the face can be pushed aside and a comparison drawn to the profits that that individual aka "talent" that can be brought to the proverbial "table" aka investor pockets. This is afterall the position of any ceo or pr agent...to make their company money..to appease their shareholders, and downplay morality in favor of greater profits...to downplay democracy in favor of more and more wealth, to "WIN" at any cost and force it down the public throat while attempting to trick us into swallowing. . They are the PR agent working on keeping their job for that industry using the law and government ( and the airways as well as the public Spectrum) as a tool they can mold and change for their own benefit. This isn't even about re-election...this is about keeping their job with their corporation when their term is up ( and in the case of the media maintaining their advertising profits). And we debate which party will serve us most...don't look at party...find out which corporation they work for because they think this is just how things are done (but also because they made it that way and want us to accept these changes like a corporate memorandum). Are we going to allow this any more? These machismo dumb fucks ( including the media) deepening their voices faking sympathy for main street and nodding their heads at " the economy" which they could just fix for us if we would all just back off and let them run the show pretend they dont want to turn us into a slave generation servicing the needs of wall street and the wealth class ( and just believe that they really want the best for us main streeters -who they refer to as "folks"- and promise to give it to us if we will just shut up and let them do what their company wants)...trying to convince the public that money is god and greed is good and that "we" must make sacrifices. This is our government (and our "free press") this is our country. They want to drown out our discontent they want to drown out free will and self reliance...and free speech...Are we swallowing any of this?

In a ridiculous twist I heard CNN tell me this morning that middle america cares more about our wallets than going after terror groups and barbarians like Isis...yeah that's it...perhaps CNN is a dangerous and crafty propaganda outlet scheming for effect. Although it is pretty easy to tell who they represent it is not hidden. Sit back and take in a few commercials and pretty quickly there it is. They will throw out a few "feel good stories" and hope you don't notice. Distract and divert..blam blam left and a right with propaganda...rinse repeat (quite systematically) .

"Hope you don't Notice..."(Lamentations&Wailing)-Nobody has a sufficient attention span to notice ANYTHING.Mission Accomplished.People did notice the Bank Crisis of 2007.Maybe they will notice when the ATM'S don't work because of a "cyber attack"-or suddenly you can't take more than 100 usd out of the Bank.

Each individual willing to make a sacrifice for their own individual needs needs to realize the role they contribute on the greater scale ...destroying freedom and democracy. Each member of the media living the good life failing to blow the whistle going with the corporate flow...each politician performing the bidding of a company figuring hey if I don't do it someone else will...needs to think of the larger picture and greater implications of their actions. You know "individual accountability" in this case the downfall of a nation that is spilling its faulty run- off on a global scale.

a assigning more direct action statements
