The art of Propaganda and Writing Headlines......
Edited on Fri Aug-07-09 05:08 PM by FrenchieCat
Real Pros!


White House expects jobless rate to hit 10 percent this year
is the short version at Yahoo
when clicking onto the article, headline reads....
White House still warns of 10 percent jobless rate
http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/us_economy_obama
(a way of framing better unemployment numbers than expected as a negative
just because this President is refusing to don his flight suit and his cockpiece
and have a banner behind him.)



Analysis: Expanding health coverage won't guarantee access
(negative story from AP on health care again.....)
http://news.yahoo.com/s/hsn/20090807/hl_hsn/expandinghe...


Committee drops Countrywide probe
(really means, Ethicspanel said it found no substantial credible evidence that either Dodd or Conrad had violated Senate rules, which forbid senators from receiving special deals not available to the general public.

Wind Promises Blackouts as Obama Strains Power Grid With Renewables Push
The amount utilities will spend is limited by how much consumers are willing to pay for transmission work and alternative energy, said Keith Martin, a lawyer at New York- based Chadbourne & Parke LLP who represents developers of renewable projects. A new solar-power facility costs three times as much as a coal-fired plant of the same size, the Energy Department estimates.

Five years from now, we could experience ratepayer backlash, Martin said. :shrug:

1. Just think how much money we'd have to rebuild and modernize this country if
we weren't killing the brown citizens of 3rd world countries half a world away with the latest high tech robot killing machines.
Today we are just testing them. Tomorrow we will sell these war toys on the world market to make way for the next generation of killing machines.

2. Don't know......
But I will say that some of it wouldn't have happened if
some of the brown citizens of 3rd world countries wouldn't have come from a half world away,
and used low tech killing machines (planes) to attack this country.

So, in the end, it is hard to say.

I'm not justifying the wars (as I was very Anti-Iraq war....just saying shit did happen that certainly provided a reason and cover to the last administration).

Just think if 9/11 wouldn't have been allowed to happen.

3. A country did not attack us. 9/11 was an act vandalism and should have been treated as such.
A police action was called for, not attacking an innocent country.
I can remember gwbu$h on national TV, with a big grin on his face, bragging about being the first war president of the 21st century. I knew then nothing would stop the criminals from getting their war on.

5. Is Obama even doing anything to bring these wars to an end?
I don't see it. Using Predators to destroy occupied villages to get one man is not endearing us to the locals. Again as usual we, are ignoring the cause and just diddling with the symptoms.

6. You don't know cause you ain't looking.
That's kind of what the anti-health care folks are doing too.
They just "hear" things, without looking into the deep.

And yes, we are certainly dealing with the cause,
and if you haven't noticed that as well,
then yes, you are blinded by your rethorical dogma.
