a citizens guide to understanding corporate media propaganda techniques « EarthBlog News©

In my opinion, this is a must read article. Propaganda and the techniques there in, such as those employed by the nazis and the soviets, never went away. They have only become more sophisticated and professionalized. When we joke about not trusting the media or what we see on tv, the sad truth is that its much bigger than we realize.

Oh children…

So James and I are driving to the store and he asks me “Dad, where’s the video store”?
To which I reply “right over there buddy”.
He says “right over there”.
“Yes”, I respond.
“It right over there, daddy”?
“Yes, James how many times would you like me to tell you”? Without missing a beat he says “Four more times daddy”.

Thought for the day

“If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their money, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them (around the banks), will deprive the people of their property until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.”Thomas Jefferson

I guess, technically, you could say I was in an action movie. Had entirely too much fun, ate too much food, and met some of the most fun and passionate people I’ve ever encountered. Thanks to all for making this trip unforgettable. Can’t wait for the next one.
