Scanning the Media's Plutocratic landscape this weekend afforded me a heavy dose of "Partisan Group Think" and with it yet another lesson in the Theatre of the absurd. Having repeatedly watched John Stewart assail the Crossfire Debutantes, Tucker Carlson and Paul Begala, my inner monologue began to scream... Go John ! If you have not yet seen this exchange, you owe it to yourself to do so as Mr. Stewart's diatribe is as refreshing as it is compelling.
Stewart's efforts to unmask the simple truth surrounding a Justice Department probe into who leaked the identity of CIA operative Valerie Plame, the wife of Bush White House antagonist Joseph Wilson:
"Bob Novak could end this whole thing tomorrow," the "fake news" apostle declared at a New Yorker magazine breakfast at the Bryant Park Grill. "There's millions of dollars being spent on this investigation, and people are going to jail, but his evil is not allowed even in the darkened abyss of his soul - some would say soul."
Stewart added: "He leaked a CIA source for punitive reasons - for ugly, partisan purposes."
Eye's wide open as it were, Mr. Stewart. Thank you for being a true patriot, one that likely has Thomas Jefferson applauding. Remind me again, why I am watching all this confusion and delay.
On the flip side of Pseudo-Journalism... On its best day, discussion of relevant political issues makes up a small fraction of the Media content, the contextual applicants wearing far too much make-up to substantiate their wanton disregard for Journalism. Perhaps this is why many Americans ages 18 - 34 tune into Comedy Central for News.
Quasi-substantive discussions about the election abound, from Tina Brown to Bill O'Reilly, substance be damned. The Message Track rhetoric requires an unending Bullhorn Blare, the division intent it to widen the chasm between neighbors in Amerika, "For or Against" rings again. When do we arrive at the Facts and leave pretense in the dustbin?
Our present circumstances are a complex matrix of cause and effect that have clear origin, if you believe as I do, that the Federal Reserve System is nothing more than an Unconstitutional Charter to subject this nation's Monetary System to Usurious Theft. This sounds incredibly harsh, almost as if I'm one of those whacked out conspiracist's hell bent on furthering an agenda for some angle of profit.
I am not. I am an American, a father of two and deeply concerned for the fate of this once great Nation. I am embarrassed by our present Leadership, a stark form of Neo-Corporate Carpet Baggerie, the kind our Federal Reserve System lay claim to unwind some 90 years ago.
We are heading towards a very dark precipice, one that's summit is approaching rapidly. We cannot honor our obligations to those whom have contributed to the myriad of successes throughout our rich history. Instead, we have chosen to ignore the warning signs, debate the cheerleaders rising apathetic din; and turn our back on our own Liberty in order to secure our "Security."
Collectively, we must begin to correct our errors for if the divide continues to widen, we are faced with a nation living by division for a very long time to come with those "Against" having to remain subservient to those "For." This is simply absurd, a travesty against one another based up on a multitude of false premises and obfuscation of fact.
Let's begin with honest and sound money and toss the Money Changers out by beginning our own convergence of PRICE and VALUE. If we can muster the fortitude to restore an honest commodity of exchange, this will be the single greatest achievement towards removing the smoke that surrounds the fate of our nation. The truths will become self evident and the distortions brought front and center in view of all. Whether one chooses to peer into the looking glass remains a choice imbued by our Founding Fathers.
Yes, it will be painful, but we must begin the process now if we are to salvage our Republic.
Restoring a Bi-Metallic system of exchange is a Moral imperative, it remains the single most important act we can achieve to preserve what is Left of our Rights to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.
Contact your Congressperson and tell them what YOU want for YOUR future, it's not too late, Honest Money must be restored.
