    If they are mis-informed, it is because there is a well-oiled misinformation machine at work.

    If they are uninformed, it is because that same machine edits information and supplies distraction as a substitute.

    Gone are the days of the 4th estate and the likes of Uncle Walter Cronkite - yet the days of believing what we are fed by the machine we associate with Cronkite have not passed.  People are poor and busy, and do not have  the time to seek the truth, much less doubt what they are told is the truth.

    The people are not stupid.  They just don't have the facts.

      about the virtues or evils of the political right or left, using the power of media and punditry as deemed necessary,  the money masters are controlling our government for their gain.    

      As George Carlin has said very eloquently in his American Dream rant,  the elections and politics are there to make the sheep believe they have some control.    They don't and they are coming for your Social Security and they will get it.     The media is part and parcel of this thievery that will inevitably lead to a new United States and one that is made up of mostly serfs and the elite.  

      OWS was on to something and it scared the hell out of the elite of both Parties.    

      Victims of bigotry are the poorest, least influential members of society.......never the wealthiest, most educated, most overrepresented in high levels, and most influential. Bigotry hurts the least influential. To claim or say otherwise is absurd.
