While You Were Sleeping
All that is occurring today is the coopting of the “Occupy” model by people with a vested interest in distracting us from what is real. The occupy movement is the single creation of the progressive movement that they “perceived” to have worked. Rally the radicals to shift blame from those who are truly responsible for their own life. If you are poor, blame the banks. If you’re uneducated, blame republicans. If your wallet isn’t flush then blame the fat cats on Wall Street. Shifting focus from what is actually wrong to what you want to be wrong in order to advance an agenda and an ideology, that is the game being played and Americans are the pawns.
The Zimmerman / Trayvon fiasco is a creation of those hoping to shift your focus. It is nothing more than the real life version of the Wizard or Oz, pay no attention to the man behind the curtain pulling the levers. Under this administration and their model for and vision of America we have been fed false story after false story to cover up their unmitigated failures. The fury being whipped up over tis case is just the latest attempt to distract us from where we find ourselves today. We have accepted $3.50 a gallon gas as normal. We have accepted higher taxes and we have accepted the new name change for higher taxes. “Fines.” We have accepted the never-ending printing of money to sustain a failed economic plan. We have accepted unemployment rates of over 7%. We have accepted deficit spending as a very real form of budget control. We have accepted the idea that creating more energy options in this country is bad. We have accepted the idea that you can actually “Lead from behind” (I still don’t get that one.) We have accepted the idea that America and the America dream needs to be fundamentally transformed. We have accepted entitlements and welfare over hard work and responsibility. We have accepted bloated government over original intent.
The list could go on and on, the point I am making is simple. Rather than talk about what the real cancers are, the cancers killing the America that took generations to build, rather than having an honest discussion we are busy focusing on the latest faux outrage perpetuated by the mainstream media and the political elite. Wake up America, you are being manipulated to fight a decades old war by a desperate and disingenuous crowd. They don’t want you asking why unemployment remains unnecessarily high and why unemployment is at never before seen levels for minorities. They don’t want you asking questions about why we cant fuel our own country with fuel FROM OUR OWN COUNTRY. They don’t want you to ask why electricity would have to necessarily skyrocket (President Obama’ exact words). They don’t want you asking why the Arab Spring has put us in more danger today than at any other time. They don’t want you asking why the NSA needs to store all the meta data for every single phone call made or collect and store your digital footprint just in case they ever “Need” to rule you out as a suspect in case a terrorist accidentally calls or emails you. They don’t want you asking why the IRS does anything, just that you trust that they have your interest at heart. They don’t want you asking why our economy hasn’t improved. They don’t want you asking why healthcare needs to be turned over to the IRS. They don’t want you asking why the Fed needs to print money to prop up an economy if their plan to spend more and tax more is working.
They don’t want you asking “Why” to anything other than the pre-packaged predetermined questions that they have baked up to serve to you as the latest distraction from their failures. This administration has clamped down hard on the philosophy of never letting a good crisis go to waste. Who cares if the crisis could rip a country in half? They don’t, they just care that they own the conversation of the day because when they win YOU lose. Asking why begs an answer, an answer they don’t want to give. It is not because they don’t have an answer, it is because the answer they have isn’t one that “We The People” would swallow easily or willingly. Do not be a fool, do not be fooled, this is the latest diversionary tactic co-opted by this administration to distract you from asking WHY. Of course, that is just my take.
