Shh over here, while we pay attention to circus...
what else is not being covered? Yes, it matters, but like the other myriad of distractions, they are part of the bread and circus as the empire collapses around us...

Alas lovely circus...there is no bread, and the distractions shall continue.

4. It's not the multi tasking
It's the pattern. Hartman raised that issue today and I think he is correct.

You are multi tasking between Cain, Murray and Lindsey Lohan. It takes work to pull that curtain.

12. Oh yeah I forgot about that one
Though under the surface that matters more than a faux candidate running for speaker fees.

25. I hear Cain has a reality show in development
"Four Women and Counting..."


*hangs head in shame for knowing enough about the Duggars to make a reference, despite never actually seeing their insane show*

5. I've been kicking this:
http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...

TSA Mission Creep... It's our next step into fascism, and is not only being ignored but in other circles being highly praised.


I counted about an hour ago. I saw 40 threads on the front page about Cain. Who was never a real candidate to begin with. Hell I found myself in one of those threads for a few minutes, finally came to my senses.

6. You're on a political forum where people are capable of
choosing for themselves what they want to comment on or read. Stop trying to Nanny everyone. If you've got something you want to post on that you think is important, nothing is stopping you, go for it.

10. I have
And your problem is?

:-)

You are free to click or not click. But this has nothing to do with the PARTICULAR story and all to do with what current media narratives are.

At a POLITICAL level that matters.

By the way sorry for intruding in the present distraction. Carry on. None is being a nanny btw.

11. Seems to me like she did...
she had a IMHO righteous complaint about the sideshow and you are nannying her by calling her out for nannying. :rofl:

14. Check on his political machine.
He is running for speaker fees. He has zero ground operation. He was also running for fox "newsie" but I think that's pretty much done.

16. some may feel sexual harassment/assault is an issue in our nation. because you do not see it
Edited on Tue Nov-08-11 05:31 PM by seabeyond
as a priority issue, really does not demean the issue. i think it is part of the whole

so go on, with you personal distraction and i will address what i am interested in

and yes

people can be aware of more than one thing

that really has nothing to do with the media and their behavior.

on edit... once argain a totally arrogant and condescending OP telling us what we are suppose to do, and what we are not suppose to do. bullshit.

19. It is an issue, a serious one, but careful of the media narrative
In fact that same narrative has demeaned the issue and made it a circus. It's like this with almost all they touch. It's NOT about the issue, no matter what, but how to use it to distract.

If they were talking of actual stats of how many women, and yes men, are harrases and how many fear coming out. But no, it's all about Cain vs these women.

17. So, what's the news?
Bread and circuses? We're being distracted? We don't know what the real news is? Country going bankrupt? Making the planet uninhabitable? Gearing up for another war we can't afford? Gov not listening to the people? What part of any news we could possibly get our hands on is not part of the circus?

29. No offense, just pointing media narratives
You want actual news you need to dig into alternate sources.

It is like it's been in the past. If this bothers you, no offense ignore poster or hide thread works wonders.

32. Yes, well my well-lost point is that we are both people trying to convince like-minded ppl to stop
paying attention to the circus and worry about real issues.

34. Well since SDPD never started an investigation
And it's all hearsay...and Carlo DeMaio used it for political gain and FLED... Well, yes it was.

But I am proof positive you and your friends knew this already.
