It’s funny, I didn’t really intend to write a political blog. My plan was to be more philosophical… you know, the search for Truth. However, I find myself repeatedly, no, constantly annoyed with the distortion, repression, and ignorance of the truth that reappears daily in politics and in the coverage of such by our esteemed 4th Estate.
I will admit to being a social and financial conservative, but not so far right as many with whom I end up being grouped. Unfortunately, anyone near the center is painted as a right wing nut by the main stream media (especially NBC and affiliates) and attacked by the loons occupying the majority of Hollywood and the entertainment industry in general. I can only guess as to why entertainers (for the most part) get so fervently behind those promoting a socialistic environment which would most likely prohibit them form being so vocal as they are… seems an oxymoronic situation to me… but I digress.
My point is that those pushing a far left agenda and pretending they are honestly portraying the facts often accuse and attack those who are attempting to be balanced as pushing a far right agenda. Seems a situation of “me thinks he doth protest to much.”
I think it is interesting to look closely at the protesters at the two conventions. The first thing I notice is that there are a lot more people protesting in support of far left ideology than far right, not that extremist on both ends don’t get loud. However, the violence from those on the left is disturbing. It was a few years ago that far right protesters were bombing abortion clinics, but now it seems to be a vast majority of protesters are far left. Why, I have to ask, do anti-war protesters in Minnesota feel the need to throw things through store front windows? Is the thinking: “the military did not find WMD’s so I’ll break out the display window of Macy’s?” How does that work? Why do people think 9-11 was an inside job? Did President Bush stand to gain anything from that? Why is Bush blamed for levee’s failing in New Orleans three years ago when Clinton chose not to fix them? Will Bush get credit for the levees holding this week, or will he some how be blamed for the 12 foot storm surge that topped some of those new levees.
It seems to me that we ought to place blame where it belongs, or maybe not at all. Sometimes stuff happens. Those who get paid the big bucks to make the tough decisions do the best they can with the information they have at the time. Just because people disagree loudly does not make them right.
Regardless, my intended refocus here is to find and illuminate real truth. We are not finding it in the media for the most part.
The truth is out there…
