I think it's time that we in America face a few facts. (And) Yes, before you ask they are facts, borne by statistics and just plain old common sense. If you read newspapers, blogs, watch TV news or listen to the radio, you should notice that we are constantly fed a stream of headlines and stories over and over that, if you pay attention to reality, are simply not true, not working or not ever going to work.
First, it should be noted that in relation to so called "dangerous" nations, the idea of "sanctions" have not, do not, nor will ever work. Think about it, we have been imposing "sanctions" on North Korea for decades and yet they are still launching missiles and building WMD's. Same goes for Iran and yes even little old Cuba is still giving us the finger after 50 years. The continued "joke" of sanctions hasn't stopped a thing there either. We have been led to believe that these folks have been living like cave people, close to starvation and deep in poverty for years. So, a few weeks or months of sanctions should put them over the edge. Well take a look at the reality. It "ain't happening and it shows no sign of happening, so let's get passed the bullshit and quit given us this nonsense. I can't figure who is more stupid the government for trying to sell us on this crap or the idiots in the media for buying in to it.
Secondly, the garbage notion that we have a free, independent and unbiased media is surely the biggest, fattest lie in history. When are people going to wake up and see that the media has an agenda. Whether it's liberal or conservative, left wing or right wing, they all have an agenda, plain and simple. Oh yes and lets all keep playing the fool and pretend it isn't so. It used to be something behind the scenes or at least more subtle but, no longer. The bias and political leanings of our fourth estate are exceedingly clear and evident. Now they have taken to bashing each other during the news casts or daily in print. All one has to observe are the weekly "feuds" between folks like Bill O'Reilly and Keith Olberman or Rush Limbaugh and Olberman or almost any right winger and Olberman. It is a constant drumbeat of spats between Ann Coulter, Shawn Hannity or Glenn Beck on the right versus Bill Mahar, John Stewart and
the previously mentioned Olberman on the left. It's amazing how they work in their stinging criticism of the other side in between the so called news stories they report. What a total joke! Wake up people.
