Though this is nothing new, it sure seems like we are being inundated with one crisis after another these days. Any one of which is guaranteed to cause your blood to boil, cause you to break out in a severe case of righteous indignation, or make you run straight back to bed, get into the fetal position, and pull the covers over your head, hoping all of this will “just go away”.
It has gotten to the point were instead of saying “I can’t believe this is happening” or “I can’t believe (he/she/they) just did that”, to a more numbed out; *Sigh* “what’s next?!”
1. President Obama Brokers a Nuke Deal with Iran.
The administration claims there will be language in place preventing Iran from becoming a nuclear power (ie: having the “bomb”), and there is nothing to worry about. Any number of sources question that. Israel, obviously feels otherwise. As well they should. Somewhere, in one of the eight circles of Hell, Nevel Chamberlin has to be smiling. For much like Jimmy Carter no longer having to carry the albatross of being “The worst President this country has ever seen”, having passed that mantle to the current occupant of the Oval Office, Chamberlin’s “Peace in our time” fiasco has now been trumped by Kerry and company. History may not exactly repeat itself, but it does produce amazingly close reminders.
2. Donald Trump running for President.
I am reminded of the “spoiler” from back when Carter ran. Sharp business mind, charismatic, pro-America/strong defense. Spoke his mind. Ross Perot. Yeah, we saw how well that worked out in keeping the Dems from the Oval Office. Like Trump or hate him, it doesn’t matter. He is going to be attacked from both sides of the professional political club, and (when they figure it is most advantageous to do so) from all branches of the media as well. If nothing else, unless the actual debates are, actually debates, and not manufactured puff pieces, he will be an entertaining diversion from what is really going on in the world.
3. Hillary Clinton
All you need to know is that everything she says is a lie. Everything she does is for/to her own advantage/advancement. And … and … damn that Bernie Sanders, doesn’t he know it’s my turn! I earned this, I am owed this (I’m married to Bill for crying out loud!!). Well, you get the idea. She is evil in a pants suit, and the media will fawn over her… until they are told not to. More diversion from the real problems/issues out there. (The exception being her involvement in any number of them, not that she will come to any political or personal harm because of that.)
4. Gay Marriage
It’s their RIGHT!! The Supreme’s (the court, not the Motown artists) say so!! No hidden agenda(s) here…keep moving along. Oh, and be careful who you refuse to bake a cake for, and if you want to “taste the rainbow”…hey, that’s your business and I don’t wanna know about it.
5. Islam is still a religion of Peace
Unless you are an American, Western Europian, white, female, or working in a gun free zone…or Jewish, you have nothing to fear from them…nothing at all. That’s why we are allowing so many of them to immigrate over here. This can only go well.
6. Planned Parenthood
What do all the above have in common? Besides the sad picture of humanity and or the sad state of western civilization, and the feeding frenzy of the various media outlets in getting their spin on it ASAP (the truth behind any given story being at best a secondary consideration, if at all). The evil present in each and every story. Or as a by-product of same. It is there, it is real, and it is working.
If you, like me and countless others, are becoming numb to what is happing around you, your city, your state, your country, and to some extent the world at large, this is a by-product of evil. That we become not so much blinded but anesthetized to that…that which but a generation ago would have been something causing massive outrage, which now only merits a “meh”.
The title of this post, “Media Bombardment”, for those who are of an evil mind/heart, this is a very effective tool. Folks want to stay informed, especially when there are so many players out there who are acting against one’s best interests. At the same time, this constant saturation of legitimate news mixed with divisive and diversionary content (who gives a rats ass about Kim Kardashian anyhow) can grind a person down. I guess one has to pick the wheat from the chaff, doing their best to try and see what is really going on out there. And it isn’t pretty. Or easy.
More to come as I get the rust off the keyboard. I refuse to go quietly into the night.
