With all the info and all the daily changes how ?
Just how can anyone even come close to predicting what will be next ?

In the last few weeks bush goes on vacation , there was the bombing between Israel and Lebanon and the talk was this is the begining of WW III of the first step toward this , all talk about Iraq fades . Somewhere around this same time frame the major issue was getting the truth out about what happened on 9/11/2001 . Then suddenly Lamont wins and off we go back to election chatter , and suddenly there is cease fire between Israel and Lebanon , this vanishes then we hear about the UK terrorist plot with liquids . All this ends abruptly and all eyes focus on Ramsey . This is not only on the mainstream media but it does seep into all online forums and liberal radio shows as well , not that these progressive radio spend time on Ramsey but never the less it's still there .

Almost each day there is a story pushing out another and it is to the point , actually it has been like this for 6 years at least , to the point of what is going on around us that can allow one to see ahead at least a week .

I am not surprised by anything anylonger , but this is absolute madness . One day you are expecting the world to blow apart and the next you are thinking about airport security or a 10 year old murder case .

I would like and do try to keep on track and not be diverted by what I call garbage entry's . While we sit here with these you have to wonder who's company just closed and where the jobs went or who is loading bombs for the next attack .

It does seem like nothing is taken serious for long unless you happen to be directly affected by any one of these events . Then you are focused and deal . All of us are affected to certain degrees but to be shifted constantly is a real choir .

1. It's become the "Lucy Goes to Work at the Chocolate Factory'
The Crazy is flying so fast and furious that a cohesive argumental defense is practically impossible.

They push the domino to its tipping point at the edge of the table and then they extend the edge of the table.

Right up to general outrage and upheaval, back off and let it simmer. Then turn up the heat again.

4. That's the best aliteration ever!
Edited on Mon Aug-21-06 01:14 AM by skids
And in fact, were I a cartoonist or flash animation jockey, I would definitely use that analogy to illustrate the utter amount of bullshit that gets by us the American people simply because of the sheer volume of bullshit in the system.

2. Quit watching the Corporate Controlled MEdia. F*K the Disaster of the day
The most real news you will get is from K O or The Daily Show.

3. I should have mentioned
I don't watch the tv news at all . what I do get is what's been the main tv media hype while listening to AAR or the blogs , so I know what's been said .

What I am addressing is just the rapid change of events and how fast all stories vanish only to become the next big issue of any given day .

5. What you are seeing is the 24 hour "newz cycle" the current talking
point goes out every day and all the talking heads talk it up. The folks on our side react to it and the beat goes on. IT is all a distraction, they never talk about the real issues and events.

Have you noticed they do talk about health insurance for every child
but not about HEALTH CARE FOR ALL?

Have you noticed they do talk about illegal immigrants doing "Jobs Americans won't do" but not about making sure that every working person in this country makes a LIVING WAGE?

Have you noticed they do talk about pulling yourself up by our bootstraps
but never talk about they way they are cutting educational funds at ever opportunity? THEY NEVER TALK ABOUT UNIVERSAL FREE QUALITY PUBLIC EDUCATION.

You can ignore the question of the day and rest assured that is is in fact not the real issue. You know the missing blond women of the day is not really going to impact your life.
