I find it absolutely amazing that so many people are either not aware or lulled to such complacency that they can no longer care what goes on in Washington D.C.  Everything that happens on Capitol Hill has a direct affect on all our lives.

First, the government took control of the financial industry, firing CEOs without the authority other than the power of dollars leveraged from the masses.  Idiots were waving banners, not in protest but in solidarity with Big Brother.

Then the government took control of the American auto industry the same way and rewarded the unions at the expense of workers’ retirement funds.  Again, the gimme, gimme crowd applauded the move.

Both moves were promoted as “stimulating the economy”.  They were to save or create jobs.  Anybody considering them to be centralizing of power and wealth in Washington while creating dependency of the masses was called a racist because our new president is half black.

In third place came the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA).  A massive bill that nobody in either chamber of Congress read before it was passed, and even the Speaker of the House proclaimed, But we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it…”  Over the past seventeen months, there have been various analyses of the bill, in parts, pieces and in whole.  What we are finding is that much of the bill has nothing at all to do with health care but much to do with the government accroaching unconstitutional powers and individual bank accounts.

The Ministry of Truth has taken over.  Once a key phrase has been uttered, it is law and to deny with fact makes one utterly absurd.  When Hugo Chavez nationalized the Venezuelan media, few people in the United States paid attention.  It has been said for many years that our media has a political bias to the liberal side causing question about the veracity of any presentations.  Conservatives see it, liberals deny it.

It is now becoming clear that we must be diligent in our acceptance of information.  John Kerry, talking about the Tea Party movement is quoted from MSNBC’s Morning Joe program seems to desire not just more bias, but shutting out any dissenting voice from the media completely.  “And I have to tell you, I say this to you politely.  The media in America has a bigger responsibility than it’s exercising today.  The media has got to begin to not give equal time or equal balance to an absolutely absurd notion just because somebody asserts it or simply because somebody says something which everybody knows is not factual.  It doesn’t deserve the same credit as a legitimate idea about what you do.  And the problem is everything is put into this tit-for-tat equal battle and America is losing any sense of what’s real, of who’s accountable, of who is not accountable, of who’s real, who isn’t, who’s serious, who isn’t?”  I’ll bet I know what his vote will be on the new “Fairness Doctrine”.

Not to pick on only one outlet, but the following link also came to my attention within hours of the above quote.  Please watch and decide if you should blindly accept that “news” is presented honestly.  You might also want to question who is controling of the truth.
