Ever heard that phrase “I feel like a mushroom – I’m kept in the dark and people keep throwing (Word I Shouldn’t Say) on me?”
Let’s see what the Main Stream News is doing to shed sunlight on certain topics:
Obama’s “Transparency”: Let’s see…the visitor logs to the White House have been made public, but the real important visitors sneak in back doors and back alleys and meet with officials at local eateries.
Inequality of income means lopsided ignorance of basic facts. Apparently Newsweek writers think that if your color TV is smaller than the national average that one is excused from knowing the name of our vice president. Way to point out that there is a public education – of sorts – to which every citizen and non-citizen has access. Failure to apply oneself to the completion of a general course of study, at the C or D level even, is not a valid excuse for generationally or geographically based ignorance. Of course, not knowing the name of the VP may be a purely voluntary reaction to the reality of the situation. IMHO, of course.
I saw part of this interview, and I remember being supremely irritated at Safer’s attitude. What is it about the Catholic Church that non-Catholics think they know more than 2000 years of Scripture scholars? And that the Church should change to their way of thinking? I mean, if you want women priests and abortion, there are other places you can go. Don’t tear down the Catholic house to rebuild your idea of the perfect religious home. Go build your own place of worship if you can’t find one ready made to fit your personal belief system, or lack thereof.
And did you know that Israel has disappeared? At least, according to Egypt Air it has. Did you hear about this on ABC? CBS? NBC? I hate to tell Egypt Air, but Israel ain’t that easy to get rid of. Especially if they are still flying there several times a week.
Well, it’s time for me to brush off the — hmmm — “compost material” and get one with my day. When I find the light switch I’ll turn it on for you.
