We need to wake up

11/20/09 Friday
Just a quick note before I head out to take advantage of another beautiful day. It’s chilly but that works well with hard work. I watched with sadness the infomercial disguised as the news this morning and it reveals so much about our country. It was on ABC’s Good Morning America, the only national network we can pick up. They spend a large percentage of their time “reporting” on this new cruise ship that is the biggest ever built. It’s so obvious that this is a paid for promotion, at least to me. This is normal for the show and probably for the other networks as well. Are they just reporting on what they think America wants to hear? Or are they purposely designing to just feed us fluff and keep American’s uninformed, misinformed, and filled with a false sense of security in this ever increasingly volatile world we live in? Do most Americans desire to bury their heads in the sand and choose to hide from and ignore ugly truths? I don’t know the answers to these questions for sure but have a good idea of what the truth is. “We” want to be entertained and distracted. And I believe that there are forces in the world that are increasing in their control and influence and use that to blindfold us and lead us like sheep where they wish. We need to wake up and take back our country.

That’s it. I’ve got a farm to build.
