I don't get it.

I have to stop reading the news wires. Well, AP at least. They quit trying to mask their spin a few years ago. Look at these headlines:
"Democrats Scold the President on spying"
Scolded? How does pointing out criminal activity and rebutting the perpetrator's BS excuse become scolding?
"Rove tells Republicans to run on Bush's Record"
I'd have used "White House Aid under investigation for treason praises the
President's commitment to National Security." If that's too long,
"Possible Traitor Endorses Bush's Security"
And here's another on the subject
"Rove: GOP to use Terror as Campaign Issue"
This ones kind of fun. I'd just change one word. Try to guess it. I'd have left off "Issue." It seems to take away from the honesty of the headline. And the first couple of paragraghs are pure talking point distribution.
" Embattled White House adviser Karl Rove vowed Friday to make the war on terrorism a central campaign issue in November. He also said Democratic senators looked "mean-spirited and small-minded" in questioning Supreme Court nominee
Samuel Alito'.
"Republicans have a post-9/11 view of the world. And Democrats have a pre-9/11 view of the world," Rove told Republican activists. "That doesn't make them unpatriotic, not at all. But it does make them wrong — deeply and profoundly and consistently wrong."


Tookie Williams was introduced as Crip CoFounder and Murderer. Karl Rove is an Embattled White House Advisor. There you can see the Liberal Bias of the Media. Oh wait. Snap. I mean the Conservative Agenda of the Media. A Liberal bias would look more like:
Tookie Williams- Five time Nobel Peace Prize Nominated Children's Book Author and reformed gang member/ anti gang activist... I could go on.

Karl Rove- Political agent widely credited for the Regime's victories in the last two highly contested and possibly fraudulent Elections, while remaining under investigation for possible breaches of National Security, told like minded Republicans to disregard the President's complete disregard of National Security and instead carry on as if the opposite where true. Afterwards, the suspected traitor used his security clearance to read...

That sounds better. So if anyone asks you, you now know the difference between a Liberal Bias and a Conservative Agenda and how they effect the wording of the News. My big question is, how can the people writing this stuff sleep aat night? Journalists. They went to school and studied this once honorable profession. I would hope that at least some of them did it out of a desire to become a great investigative reporter or Gonzo writer. But there isn't a one of them in the MSM that hasn't surrendered their ideals to become Rove's flowery printing presses.
How can this be. What is it that keeps them from just standing up and saying "No, you ain't payin me to lie like that!"
It is reminiscent of Nazi Germany and the submission of decent people to the orders given them by mas murderers. Don't worry, I am not saying Bush is Hitler. Or even Napolean for that matter. Nope, he's more than likely the third guy Nostradamus predicted. You know, the biblical one. But enough about that.
I've read the reasons given by average Germans who saw what was happening around them and stayed silent. It's the same excuses I hear today from Americans who know what is going on around them but refuse to do any thing about it. They have jobs to keep, families to provide for, blah blah blah. Well, it didn't work out very good for the German families, did it?
I have a family, kids, the works. That's the reason I'm doing this, why I'm risking my ass out here trying to stop our slide into Hell. I'm not refering to this blog, by the way. I am talking about my other site, Blasted Reality. Before my kids were born, I saw the pollution, corruption and destruction all around and said "If humanity is stupid enough to destroy itself, at least it'll be funny to watch." Morons pouring poison into their own water, while patting themselves on the backs and quoting Exxon-Mobile, "We aren't hurting the Planet!"
Of course you're not, dipshit. The planet isn't going anywhere, you are!
Now I have these four cute little eyes that look at me with a hope for a future and trust that I will protect them. How can anyone go home to that day after day knowing that the light in those eyes will someday pay the price for their complicity?

If the world is shit, and it is, why have kids?

Sameyl,
Nice name. I doubt many get it, Lucie Furr. That which can replicate its genetic code, does. The biological imperative. And the world has always been shit. Too chaotic, too bent on destruction, too scary for anyone to rationaly consider bring life into. It was on the brink when I was born. I have outlived most expectations and critics. My kids will have to adapt and survive also. I will protect them as long as I can and do my best to give them the skills they need to survive.
Oh, and I always prefer to regret the things I've done than things I don't do.
