Media Bias

The level of propaganda, agitation, and outright falsehoods being told about the Trayvon case are off the charts.

Here is the picture that the Main Stream Media has been showing you for days now of Trayvon Martin (13 or 14 as pictured)next to George Zimmerman (Conveniently in the Jail Orange Jumpsuit)

I wonder if public perception on this case would be different if the media were instead reporting that Trayvon was actually on top of Mr. Zimmerman, beating him before the shots were fired and in stead showed this picture of the two side by side.

Free Cell Phones

Life Wireless (AKA Free Government Cell Phones) is now setting up free cell phone tents to promote the free government cell phones. It's not enough that they are sending advertisements in the weekly circulars, now they actually have people who are going out into the community and hawking cell phones paid for by the taxpayers. The only requirements are that you qualify for one of the following.

■Low Income Home Energy Assistance Plan (LIHEAP)
■Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
■Food Stamps
■Section 8 Federal Public Housing Assistance (FPHA)
■Senior Citizen Low-Income Discount Plan (offered by the local gas or power company)
■Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF)
■Income at or below 135% of federal poverty level* (proof required)

Aren't you glad you pay taxes?

Kony Propaganda being used in Schools

The Ugandan LRA leader Joseph Kony is the latest African tyrant to make headlines. Apparently he's doing some awful things in Africa including using children as soldiers and sex slaves, none of which is a new phenomenon. Of course that doesn't make it good, or even ok, but these types of crimes have been going on all over Africa throughout history, Kony is only the latest tyrant to use his power and influence over the people.

Now let me be on the record as saying that I do not support Kony in any way, I'm simply asking whether or not we should be involved.

It has come to my attention that a movement has started, a movement to find and eliminate Joseph Kony. If this movement was made up of freedom fighters, mercenaries and guerrillas volunteering to go help find this man to bring him to justice, I would have no problem with it. My issue is that this movement is designed to use the Children of America and the world to force military intervention in a foreign country.

This movement has urged the use of propaganda in order to expand the message. As a political activist, I must agree that this tactic makes sense. What troubles me is that it's being used in our public schools, without any consideration to the causes and effects that have come in the past and will likely come in the future if we continue on this path of military interventionism. When in our recent history has it been acceptable to use students to advocate war? The video which has been shown in our schools says "we will fight war". Now, I'm sure this can be dissected many different ways, but the context in this video is to get U.S. Involvement, so what do you think that means? Really, what does “military advisers” mean?

I'm also deeply troubled that this video and movement is exaggerating the current impact of Kony, since his forces have been greatly reduced in recent time.Are the children being told that the United States has been giving the poor people of Africa hundreds of billions of dollars a year and much of this money often goes to people like Kony. Are the children being taught that the U.S. has often been involved in situations around the world helping people, only to have those we helped turn into the likes of Saddam Hussein, Osama Bin Laden and Joseph Kony. Today, they ask for Military Advisers, but we all know it turns into weapons and troops in no time, once we find a political excuse to be involved and this movement is doing exactly that, urging involvement in yet another foreign conflict.

Just a few short years ago young people in this country took to the streets to fight against the war in Iraq. Now our young people are being used to urge the deployment of military assets in a foreign land. Is this still America? I feel like I've woken up in an alternate universe where now U.S. Military involvement has become the norm instead of the exception.

In closing I want to say that I would be thrilled to have more young people involved in the political process. I would be thrilled to have young people really care about what's going on in the world and especially in our own country. But it troubles me when I see children being used as pawns for political gain. Stopping one man will never end the atrocities, only freedom and individual liberty can do that.

If you're a parent of a child in school, I would urge you to investigate the use of this video and to discover the intent and to get an explanation as to it’s use as curriculum. Especially since one of the primary functions of this movement is to raise addition funds for "Tri" with the sale of bracelets being targeted at the kids, which we all know are particularly susceptible to peer pressure marketing.

HR347 Federal Restricted Buildings and Grounds Improvement Act of 2011

Ron Paul, Justin Amash and Paul Broun of GA are the only three who voted against HR347

HR347 which Passed Monday essentially makes into the law the ability of the Federal Government to prevent protests of any kind in the presence of the President, the VP and anyone them deem worthy of SS protection. Want to hold a protest rally against the POTUS, guess what, you can now be sent to jail for 10 years.

Have a nice day.
