Instead of a link fest, a collection of links on a given topic, I decided to do a grope fest in honor of the intrusive new procedures enforced by the TSA. Apparently, as many Americans have come to find out, TSA stands for TSA Sexual Assault. When running for president, then presidential candidate Obama ran on a platform of hope. Now, two years into his presidency, American hope has transformed to grope. You give up all constitutional rights when you give up your genitalia to government officials to be frisked and handled, because by then the government has you by the balls! I don’t know about you, but there is a no fly zone in my pants so government official keep you hands to yourself. Talk about the overreach hand of government.
Two things happened this week that speaks volumes of the double standards and double talk of the press and how they function to spread FUD in the populace as an instrument of the Ministry of Misinformation. The first revelation was the firing of Juan Williams by NPR. Juan Williams was a long time correspondent and news analyst a the NPR was fired after he appeared on the Fox News television show The O’Reilly Factor when he spoke about his views about Muslims who wear middle eastern clothing. In particular the soundbite used by all news outlets is the following, “I got to tell you, if I see people who are in Muslim garb and I think, you know, they are identifying themselves first and foremost as Muslims, I get worried.” He said a lot more than just that, this one quote was pulled out from larger discussion about how America is not at war with Islam or Muslims, but neither side listens to the context, just the out of context blurb about some garb. The firing of Juan Williams comes less than a month after Shirley Sherrod from the USDA by the administration when a video of her came out that took a speech where she admitted that at one point she had racist attitudes towards a white farmer. Shirley was speaking to an all black audience about something that happened years prior, and she was the whole context of her speech was about how she herself overcame those racist tendencies against. The political correctness police is just as bad as the secret police in making examples of those that honestly speak their mind.
The other event that shed light into the incompetence of the news media is the wikileaks release nearly 400,000 documents. Let me be clear and first state that by no mean would I ever want any service men or women to be harmed by the release of these documents. That being said, they are fighting in Iraq for transparency and democracy and to keep the American people in the dark of what is happening in Iraq is a disservice to those serving there. If this was 1970 and these document were housed in some closet in the Watergate hotel and if Julian Assange worked for the The Washington Post he might have won the Pulitzer Price for uncovering the truth in Iraq. Even with journalists embedded with the military, the news media is blind or turning the other way to keep the American population misinformed

It’s funny how the foundation to a person’s argument is often based on biased. The current debate behind and the Arizona State Bill 1070 are based on bias, fear, misunderstanding. Arizona State Bill 1070 equates Mexican migrants, which are political refugees not illegal aliens, to Mexican drug cartels (which are funded by American dollars). Another equation, that must be done in seconds, is that of Apache helicopter pilots that needs to distinguish between innocent bystander and insurgent terrorist. WikiLeaks recently released video of a Apache attack helicopter killed an Reuters staff photographer because the Apache pilots mistook the photographer’s lens as a rocket propel grenade.
Here are other example of the predicate philosophy, the moral compass, which is used to base our understanding of our values.
Innocent = Insurgent
