This video has been on this blog numerous times, too many to count, and usually for one particular individual. However, this time the posting is a blanket posting. It goes out to the current state of our political system, judicial system, educational system, welfare system...give me a minute, I'll come up with more. Oh, let's throw in the media too. I don't subscribe to the "liberal media" being a proper or accurate tag, but I do believe that the media is full of hungry, self-serving people who, like all of us, want to get ahead in our careers. Their job is about getting the news out there, whether it's truly news or just sensationalism. And boy, do they do it well. They basically lead us around by our noses on a daily basis, and lead us to believe that, for example, certain political candiates (whoever is "hot" at the moment) are the forerunner....the next prez...the next scandal, WHATEVER. And we watch, and we listen and we EAT IT UP and believe it to be true. I don't care if you are a robot, uh...I mean a watcher of Fox News, or any other news provider - they all do it. They all slant in different directions at times, some more than others...but they all do the same thing. They are interested in improving ratings, climbing their own personal ladders, and keeping us...the dumbed down people of the United States of America, informed about what THEY think we should be informed about. In 100 years, all new people, none of it will matter to us. But right now it does, so we get sucked in, jerked around and come out feeling dirty, dissatisfied and generally unhappy. I wonder how much of our trouble is created by our own hands. Jesus.
