A Few Of. . .

The "Kind Of Says It All" Items That Are Hard To Ignore. . .
compiled by The Old Hippie Because ~47% Us Aren't Listening, And Don't Care


A list of recent revelations, exposures, ironical stats, happenings, and other general weirdness. . .

The most obvious one first:  Bush's naming of John Bolton as "our" UN ambassador.  There is no single person that he could have named who is more anti-UN than John Bolton.  It is like naming the head of the Ku Klux Klan to head the NAACP.  That comparison is not hyperbole, that's as honest, and as obvious a comparison as I could make.  The powers behind this choice have made it abundantly clear, even openly "arrogantly in your face," that they have no intention of allowing any "outside of the Empire interferences" from any other nation, or group of nations.

Second has to be:  The corporate mainstream media's continued support, even promotion, of the likes of Ann Coulter, Michael Savage, David Horowitz, Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, Jerry Falwell, Pat Robertson, et al, is so beyond the pale, that one is left almost speechless.  Almost.  The fact that these obvious bigots, and/or openly arrogant propagandists, and/or insane religious nuts, and/or dangerous opportunists are still not only being supported, but even promoted, by the corporatist's controlled mainstream media of America does more than "kind of say it all," about the non-reality of "our" mainstream media's non-intention of allowing the truth out to us fodder units within the Empire.

Third must be:  The very well documented level of ignorance, that is continuing to increase, of the majority of American's perception of the reality of the facts behind 9/11, and the "reasons" for going to war on the Iraqi people.  But even more "kind of says it all," is the fact that those with the power to reverse this openly exposed ignorance of facts, are going out of their way to not do anything to reverse it, in fact they are promoting its continued existence, hence the reason behind the increase.  (i.e. The mainstream media, the administration itself, the church, etc.)

As I construct this list, contemplate which to add, I keep coming back to the fact that the "facts" of each is - That if "our" mainstream media had actually reported the "facts," they wouldn't exist as "kind of says it all" candidates for this list in the first place. . .  Think about it. . .

The facts of global warming, the facts of Intelligent Design/Creationism, the facts of one-party-rule, the facts of the criminally corrupted national elections, the facts of corporate ex-CEOs and lobbyists being placed into positions of control over "our" regulatory agencies, the facts of corporate privatizing of as much of our government as possible, the facts behind the purposeful destruction of the Separation of Church and State, the facts of state support and promotion of torture, the facts behind the facts that America (Land of the Free) has the largest prisoner population in the written history of this planet. . .  . . .

The facts, behind the fact, that absolutely no one has been punished for any of this incredibly arrogant in-our-collective-faces disastrously deadly and destructive mess.  Absolutely no one.

Hell - Even be an American patriot - Bitch about it.  If you don't. . .

Then - It Kind Of Says It All - Doesn't it?
