Someone was listening.
And some others were completely deaf.
You see, I called my congressman yesterday to tell him to vote no on the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008. Several other good citizens also called him to say the same thing.
He voted yes.
The bill was defeated anyway.
I listened to all the dire news reports from PBS, NPR, ABC, etc. Their language was peculiar. The talking heads blamed one party, then the other…then nattered on as to who was going to fix it. It was as though this whole victory (to them, defeat) was an inside job.
Never, ever, once did any journalist, commentatory, pundit, or pretty face mention that perhaps…
The people did not want it. They were the ones who defeated the Nationalist-Socialist takeover. They called, they faxed, they e-mailed, they waved signs, they screamed, “NO!”
In order for the media to admit it was the peoples’ “fault”, they would have to also admit that we were wrong, which then lends itself nicely to the Nationalist-Socialist agenda. The people couldn’t possibly know what they need. “WE” have to decide these Big Scary things for them. [Yeah…this situation is big and scary…though in ways that would strip power from Big Brothers and give it back to US.]
