Daily Prompt: Unbelievably Uneven

There is a saying that some “cannot see the forest for the trees” and this appears to be true for most.  When we are distracted by details or specifics, it takes our attention off the bigger picture.  This is how things can get out of hand.

When ever you have to say “what’s happening here” that’s usually what happened.  I am referring to the general state of our world at this time.  There is never a good reason for a confused state unless someone does not know what they are doing or worse yet, they do know, but are causing  problems on purpose.

Most of us are aware of the games our mainstream media plays with our minds when it comes to what is laughingly called reporting “the news.”  For many years they have been accused of being biased but now most have crossed over to spreading obvious propaganda.  This is not journalism and this is not acceptable to any thinking person.  There are many that are fooled because they want to be.  They want to believe anything that their idols in hellywood or on helevision believe.  I used to be like that when I was very young and the average liberal is usually very young, idealistic and impressionable.

One of the most disgusting facts not being discussed is just how much of all media, not just the news, is being slanted now.  We have all known for many years how ignorant and shallow most celebrities are.  They are the very ones that tell the stories which effect our culture adversely.  Most programming and movies are not “feel good” anymore.  Most comedies are “dark” comedies, dark meaning evil.  So how is that a comedy at all?  I guess if you are evil you will get a kick out of it but some of us have no intention of crossing over and it offends.  “Artistry” that promotes agendas or ways of thinking is not what creative writing is about.  Forcing others to your will is about as far away from creativity as you can get and yet, most cannot see what is happening.  And the constant lack of respect and compassion in so many of today’s movies and programs boggles the mind.  Who relates to it and why are they trying to mold human beings to such a low standard?  Furthermore, who really is “they” and what is their end game?

People in hellywood and on helevision are paid to put thoughts into everyone’s brains and these plots are not by accident.  The theme of  murder, death, destruction, jealousy, revenge, illicit sex, hedonism, drugs and alcohol are rampant throughout all these so-called “works of creativity” of which these people regularly get together so they can pat themselves on the back in a group setting.  And “monkey see, monkey do” you can see what this has done to our society as a whole especially when so many use the TV as a babysitter.

Anyone who deliberately makes it their mission to make murder and carnage look glamorous and exciting to impressionable minds have no right to laugh all the way to their banks.  They all need to be put out of business.  Years ago many that were smut driven were put out of business and rightly so.  Just see what bad influences are doing to a once semi-beautiful world.  I say semi because God made a beautiful world and man still does not know how to live in a manner that sets this world to it’s best advantage or man be his best because most want all the glory themselves and find it funny or foolish to believe in God, let alone a savior.

The day that I will accept the opinion of someone who is paid to say what someone else wants us to believe over God, especially when that person will sell their own soul to earn that money, will be the day when the world will self-destruct, much as it is now.  The further they push back the words of God in favor of the words of evil men the further this society will sink into the hellish depths it’s already headed for.  God help His people for it is written that anyone who helps another into hell or does not admonish the actions leading to it has the blood on their own hands as well.

Watered Down Stories and Cynicism

Life is not fair. No one ever discusses one of the main discrepancies of our lives that goes beyond race, religion and economics.  They never get to the heart of why some are successful and some barely get by.  I want to talk about how personal ethics and self-control weigh into all of this.

Recently attention has been given to those in Detroit struggling to pay their water bills. Really?  Since when is being irresponsible all of a sudden someone else’s problem?  Many years ago, this would not have been my feeling hearing something such as this.  Now that I am much older and have met many people, have seen and heard some of the stunts some pull in order to “play the system” or “get something for nothing” these stories evoke something very different in me.

Yes I am cynical and rightly so. Cynicism is a good thing.  Naivety is not.  When broadcasting people’s so called “plights” it always helps to put as many facts into the story as possible.  In anything I hear about the more facts the better.  I’m always curious of how or why something is so.  There’s a huge difference in people who can’t pay and those who won’t for whatever reason.

Fresh water is pretty expensive around metro Detroit. When I had more people in my home and watered the lawn and garden I could pay about $250 every three months.  I also know that when I hardly use any, it was down to about half that amount.  If you know you are on a tight budget you tell your family to be responsible.  Take care of any drips, don’t water the lawn, take long showers or run your water when you aren’t using it.  In other words, be responsible for your actions that effect your money!

I want to know exactly who these people are who I’m sure have money for beer, cigarettes, food and cable TV and somehow can’t pay their water bills. They appear to have money enough for the home that needs running water, but they don’t have quite enough to pay for their water.  There’s something called economics and budgeting.  You don’t spend more than you have and you certainly don’t use more water than you can afford to pay for.  Yes for some a job loss or illness could cause these kinds of problems, but it can’t be the case for almost half the city of Detroit supposedly.

If I had never personally heard people, who to me are professional deadbeats, say things such as “I want to buy such and such or go here or there and I know since I’m poor they can’t turn my power off on me” and then they go out and do it I wouldn’t be thinking this way because it never entered my mind to do something like this even when I was the working poor.  I just went without and budgeted like hell!  I never ever thought the world owed me anything because I knew from being neglected and abandoned by my own parents that there was no world out there going to take care of me.  My parents didn’t even try to cheat the system or even ask for help themselves.  Now I don’t know how these other people became “spoiled” where they think some magical fairy is out there just waiting to take care of their every need like that, but it’s not very fair or very realistic.

I really believe our current media is very irresponsible and actually not very bright or experienced. I say this by the level of their supposed journalism compared to that of about 50 years ago.  People in the news media industry no longer appear to go after stories with much logic or depth.  I have read things that appear insane or at best laughable that the rest of us are supposed to buy into.

Basically that is what today’s journalism is for. Entertainment.  There is seldom any truth to stories and the facts are always way off base making it fiction.  In the past a news story was never allowed to be as inaccurate or biased as they are now.  A journalist always sought the truth no matter who looked bad.  Now that is unheard of.  Currently if the powers that be plan on having a certain person look a certain way, that’s how the story is written, no matter how slanted or ludicrous the outcome.

The Obvious Bias and Discrimination of Our Media

printing office2

America is a very aggressive and controlling country.  It was a good thing that the founding fathers had the sense to base it on a Constitution for the fair treatment of all citizens.  Through the years, to deal with instances of abuse and discrimination against blacks and women, they actually added amendments to this constitution giving them the ability to single these people out.  Why?

When I got older and wiser and realized that our lawmakers saw fit to do this, it made me question their competency and their wisdom.  Common sense dictated that by the very addition of these amendments, they were telling the world that our Constitution wasn’t really worth anything, that it was, in fact, telling everyone that the great Constitution of the United States was written by the rich white man, for the rich white man, not for anyone else.  Why would I send my child to defend a country that has nothing to offer the average citizen?

Because of the incompetency of our lawmakers, they decided to pass additional laws saying “blacks had the same rights” and “women had the same rights” instead of going to the source of the various abuses and charging them thusly.  There was never a need to add additional or specific people to our United States Constitution or our Bill of Rights.  It covers all citizens regardless of sex, race or religion and always did.  The minute Constitutional rights were being abused those responsible should have been taken to task in whatever way was appropriate.  No one should have ever been able to get away with telling someone they are not welcome in a public place as long as they are being courteous and following proper social mores so they are not truly harming others or infringing on those other people’s rights, which no one has any right to do.  To be able to say you can’t be here because you look a certain way is just not acceptable.  To say that you are not welcome because you are stealing, assaulting or committing other evils is completely understandable and no one has to worry about rejecting a criminal as being thought of as an infringement of anyone’s basic human rights.

I have been questioning the competency and honesty of our government officials for many years now.  Every deed that is done or act that they neglect to do is proof of what kind of people they are and what they wish for the citizens of this country.  Too bad their competency never appears to enter in when most vote.  I realize that there are always slim pickings when it comes to candidates because the cost of running for anything prevents most of the honest, decent people from throwing in their caps.  What we now have are very wealthy families and individuals that want to control the rest of us and have not been doing a good job of anything from our free trade agreements to laws that are passed that make it easy for very wealthy corporations that make trillions in profits, to avoid paying their fair share of taxes or any taxes at all for that matter.

Tax dollars are what keeps us out of the red.  We cannot get the money needed to build more weapons of mass destruction and keep our country running without it.  Lawmakers have allowed many of the American citizens to lose good jobs and their homes, they’ve allowed large businesses to pay foreigners to work cheaper for them instead of the American citizens who in turn would be paying income tax with those earnings and have allowed such liberal free trade agreements and tax loop holes that give the wealthiest of citizens and businesses completely unfair tax immunity, not just tax advantages.

Just knowing that these people make other laws for us is frightening because you know they are not fair or just but are out to do favors for the wealthy and powerful all the while trying to appear up front to the rest of the world.  This is achieved by good publicity.  Publicity bought and paid for by the rich men that actually run America.

The wealthy pull the strings of the lawmakers and the media.  America’s major network news stations are owned and operated by just a handful of very wealthy men that also operate our government from behind the scenes.  There are no Democrats or Republicans, there are merely the same puppets with different labels so that small minds will quibble back and forth about who’s the best, instead of looking at what any of them are actually doing.  The media is not allowed to report the news without bias, especially when it is politically motivated.  They are only allowed to say what they are told to say.  Of course, with the internet and so many independent news agencies now, if you know better, you can double-check other sources for a more complete view of what is going on and to also be aware of some important breaking news that our government will sometimes keep quiet for as long as they can.  All these agencies tend to put their own slant on the news, so it is up to you to be objective and try to find the truth somewhere out there.

There now appears to be very obvious discrimination in news reporting from our various liberal owned networks such as NBC, CBS, ABC as well as CNN and Yahoo.  It has come to anyone’s attention who cares that the news is no longer being reported objectively.  Whenever there is a story about a Republican there is a deliberate intent to make them look foolish or downright stupid.  I have seen a reporter on CBS almost roll her eyes and take a very nasty tone interviewing a Republican candidate recently.  Anytime a Democrat lies, or does something wrong it is seldom mentioned by them even once, and quickly forgotten about.  Hate to accuse them of cover-ups, but that is essentially what is being done.

There now appears to be deliberate intent on the part of our network news agencies to completely slant all racial news coverage in obvious ways.  Whenever a black or Muslim kill someone, especially a non-white or non-Muslim, it is always reported as something like “shooting claims two lives” or “two women found shot to death.”  But whenever a white person kills a black or Muslim it is reported as “White cop kills black man” or “White man shoots three Muslims.”  When I see headlines such as these I have to say, “WTF?!”  There is not a sense of fair reporting when this is going on.  It is being done deliberately to create racial divide because there is no other reason for such blatant bias.

If our government controlled media is purposefully trying to create racial unrest, there must be a reason.  If they were to anger enough people and create riots or civil unrest, they could declare martial law and attempt to disarm all the citizens.  That would be a Dictatorship’s wildest dream and does seem like something that a controlling and paranoid government could pull.  Either that or we have some very unprofessional and negligent reporting that needs to be cleaned up fast.  I need to trust a news source or I won’t use them.

 

Mixed Media or a Witch Hunt

Donald Sterling is guilty of NOTHING and what a witch hunt!  Is he perfect, heck no, are any of us?  I challenge most people that they say much worse in the privacy of their own home.

He trusted a skank, his first mistake.  Did he sleep with this woman or not?  The media was calling her his mistress.  If so, he was an adulterer which is morally far worse than being prejudice unless you hurt someone acting on that prejudice.  Do I think what he said was very nice?  No, but it just showed what he felt and he didn’t seem abusively nasty about it.  You all have heard much worse from far more powerful people.  Funny how the media is pushing this and they quickly hushed up Jesse Jackson’s evil and filthy comment about President Obama.

Shame on all you network channels doing this kind of obvious crap because you are all bought and paid for.  None of you report honest news stories in America.  It actually appears as if you constantly try for racial strife which is very hypocritical since most of you are rich white folk and there is a saying about “me thinks the man protests too much.”  It appears as if someone was setting this man up because they meant to be able to take his team from him, maybe on the cheap.  Where there’s smoke, there’s always fire and when something is overblown for one man and swept under the rug for another, I can read those smoke signals.

Granted Jackson apologized for this psycho comment but what he said was ten times worse and never was he hounded to stop using the inappropriate “reverend” title or did the news media try to ruin him like they are doing this white nut job.

Jumping to Conclusions, Lying or Just an Average News Day?

Have you ever read an article or heard a news report that you found hard to wrap your head around?  The kind where little or conflicting information is reported.  The conclusion is loosely explained and there was not enough information as to how this conclusion was reached.  Even before I had personal experiences of people I know making news and the way their stories were incorrectly reported, I used to wonder just how accurate our news was.  I wondered where the facts actually came from.  Is the story being deliberately slanted?  Where exactly did the details come from, eye witnesses, relatives, victims, the police on the scene?  Are the facts correct or summations of trying to put two and two together without real knowledge of what actually occurred.  Like in cases of accidents, suicide or murder sometimes these cases can be difficult to determine.  Depending on who is interviewed, whether they know the difference between the truth and fiction or even wish to tell the truth, you will only know what others think happened or want you to know.  The story is only as accurate as the investigation and the facts found, as long as everyone agrees they want the truth known.   

I have read the book “Bias” by Bernard Goldberg an ex-CBS reporter.  In it he reports his experiences on how the networks decide to present various stories in ways that distort the facts and don’t tell a complete or accurate story.  Not lies, mind you, but the truth according to them and how they want certain others to look.  They know how to get sympathy for some and paint others as villains, instead of just stating fact and allowing everyone to come to their own conclusions.  Some stories are very obvious lately.  It’s pretty obvious to me that most network reporters hate conservatives, which in a way disturbs me because they are more level-headed or logical about things.  We won’t go into the many reasons why the conservatives also despise liberals, who are now in charge of most, if not all, of our networks.  I am amazed at the way they manage to put a good spin on bad things and a bad spin on that which is good and morally right.  I know that Liberals are in favor of most things that make the average citizen cringe, but the spin is to make you think that there is something wrong with you because you are normal.  And normal is bad why again?  Because you are not open-minded enough to consider how others wish to behave and expect them to think and act like everyone else.  In my opinion, most civilized societies have to operate this way to survive.

I actually started this post because of an article I read this morning that stated “Looters Steal $200K in Coins After Hoarder’s Death.”  It went on to state that there had been numerous people going onto a property, stealing coins and selling them.  When it was finally investigated they found the resident “crushed to death” months before.  They in no way mentioned that they felt any of the thieves were responsible for the man’s death.  The victim was painted as a weird, hated loner so I’m wondering that since no one seemed to care that he died at all, apparently they are not investigating this as a crime scene except for the stolen items.  No mention if they thought it was somehow an accident or if foul play crossed their minds while it danced across mine.  These types of articles are beginning to be the rule instead of the exception.  I would really appreciate well documented, factual based news by reporters that actually get to the heart of their stories.
