Wake Up America!

What is everyone talking about lately?

Are they talking about the fact that Obama ordered a drone strike on a wedding in Yemen that killed 14 injured 22.

U.S. Drone Strike Targets Yemeni Wedding

No.

Are they talking about the rise of the police state in America where cops unarmed civilians like in this story:

Cop Kills College Student for Speaking Disrespectfully

No.

Are they talking about how the Federal Reserve (which, by the way, turned 100 years old today) has never been audited despite the fact that this privately owned bank systematically destroys the value of the dollar and hands out huge cash payments (that come from our tax dollars) to other privately owned banks such as Citigroup, Bank of America, and JP Morgan Chase.

11 Reasons Why the Federal Reserve Should Be Abolished.

Not likely.

No, none of these issues, among a myriad of other issues that affect the lives of American citizens on a daily basis are the most important news stories this week.

And what is, might you ask…

The most trending story in the news right now is the fact that a redneck from Louisiana discussed his religious and personal views in an interview with GQ and the repercussions of that interview.

It is no wonder this country is in the poor shape that it is in. If this is the type of news that grabs people’s attention rather than things like what I mentioned above, it is sorely apparent that our country is going down the toilet and the majority of the American people are allowing it to happen because they’d rather ignore the big problems and crucify (no pun intended) people who speak their mind and make non-issues like this one something that turns the entire country into a frenzy.

America, why do you care what some celebrity thinks about a group of people who are different from him? Why is this story plastered all over the newspapers and magazines and television? It is because you are all sheep and because this is what you all consider to be entertainment. You would rather be entertained than be informed.

Wake up America!

One thought on “Wake Up America!

  1. I think the problem began years ago when what we refer to as “the news” was turned into a combination of entertainment and propaganda. Journalism has not only failed the people, it has betrayed them. Now there is very little news in the mainstream media. The lapdog press repeats the lies they are handed and fill in the blanks with advertising and mindless fluff masquerading as entertainment. The result is not many notice that our government is run by war criminals, our economic system has become a giant ripoff designed to enrich the few at the expense of the many, and the police who are hired to protect us have a shooting license which allows them to beat, taser, abuse, or shoot anyone they want to, whenever they feel like it, with no repercussions whatsoever. Our country has been stolen out from under us, and we stand around discussing sports or what some nonentity on tv thinks about this, that, or the other thing. Brainwashing techniques work. If you don’t believe it, turn on your television, sit back and relax, and let the magic begin.
