This anti-Iran crusade has nothing to do with nuclear weapons. It's a desperate effort by imperial Zionists, big oil and the Beltway whores who service both factions to seize the biggest prize in their grand mission by taking down yet another oil rich nation that refuses to submit to puppet status and has dumped the dollar for the euro.
It's hard not to like stories like Adam Carolla's. Had it rough as a kid, family on welfare, gets involved in sports to stay out of trouble, grows up to be pretty successful in the entertainment industry. Good for him, seriously. But he does serious damage to his credibility and the level of respect he had earned for his life story with his over the top, factually challenged, belligerent rant about the Occupy Wall Street movement.
It looks like the pollsters at Quinnipiac University are more concerned with marching in the anti-Iran propaganda parade than they are with releasing credible polls.
The last thing the corporate kings want is for you to understand that the Occupy movement actually does have a clue, and that there are many easily workable solutions to the problems we face in this country. This is because these solutions eliminate the one percent's ability to keep raping the rest of us.
The next time you hear some mainstream media parrot talking about Iran sponsoring terrorism, remind them of the covert American funding of terror groups in Iran in an effort to destabilize the government and ask them what the difference is. Tell them you're willing to agree for the sake of argument that the charge of Iran sponsoring terrorism is true, but then ask: “What's worse, sponsoring terrorism, or actively perpetrating it in multiple countries, as the US is doing?”
We've been hearing it from all corners of the corporate establishment media, parroted far and wide by an army of clueless apologists: The Occupy Wall Street movement is one without a clear direction or purpose. It's just a bunch of crazy Liberals with nothing better to do; bored college kids taking to the streets to vent their misguided angst, joined by some aging hippies trying desperately to recapture their Woodstock mojo.
Of course, the truly misguided ones are the talking heads – their moral vision obscured by dollar signs, Nielsen ratings and a debilitating fear of authority – and all their dedicated zombie box followers, who willingly accept being told how to think instead of thinking for themselves...
I guess I was wrong about AlterNet. I thought they were one of the better sources online for the truth and substance that is nowhere to be found in the complicit corporate mainstream media. But it seems there's a limit to their acceptance of the truth, which I discovered when I tried to share some regarding Barack Obama in the comment section following one of their articles yesterday.
The occupation of Freedom Plaza will not be some “radical left uprising,” as many pretenders will no doubt try to characterize it. It will include people from all political persuasions, as does the Occupy Wall Street movement. People with many differences to be sure, but united in the understanding that a corrupt government will not fix itself, and united in the understanding that, as in the famous words of Frederick Douglass, power concedes nothing without a demand.
Seven of nine witnesses against him had recanted their testimony. Another man had reportedly confessed to the crime. At the very least there was enough doubt raised to grant him a new trial, but it never happened. The long, racist arm of southern "justice" had made its decision. Clearly, they couldn't bare the thought of a black man walking free, even if he was innocent. Clearly, the thought of a little more work to ensure true justice never occurred to them. Clearly, they're far too shallow to understand that regardless of the color of our skin, we all bleed red.
Most of us can grasp the concept of helping out the ones who came before us as they reach retirement, because, of course, the day will come when we are the retirees. This is the simple logic behind our Social Security system. The ones working today support the retirees who did the same for their elders, and so on. It doesn't take much to see through the people who spend all their time trashing this great American idea . You just need to be willing to look honestly.
