The Sensational Media Blitz

The media has gone nuts covering Cheney's hunting accident and I don't get it.
Every and I do mean every broadcast seems inundated with up to the minute reports following Cheney's accident as if it was one of the biggest political stories of the year.

My point is this story seems more personal than political. It's right up there with Clinton's blowjob or Cheney's daughter's sexual preference.
Oversold sensational news that serves no real purpose other than to boost ratings.
Cheney shot his friend in a hunting accident and that sucks.
It really sucks for Mr. Whittington.

Don't get caught up in the hype as the reporters piss and moan about Cheney making a public statement or the White House holding back a press release 12, 18 or 24 hours after the fact.
What did you expect from this administration? Duh, the truth..
They continue to hold up ongoing investigations like the misleading info used to take us to war in Iraq or Bush's illegal wire taps. They hold back the requested information and documents.
If they were honest, forthright and aboveboard in their daily operations there wouldn't be so many investigations in so many areas.

Don't get me wrong I am no fan of Dick Cheney but there are plenty of issues worth following and demanding answers.

If you want to get upset, try investigating Cheney's relationship with Halliburton and the 'No Bid' contracts awarded them in Iraq and again in New Orleans.

If you want to get upset, try asking Arlen Specter and Ted Stephens why they chose to waive swearing in people giving testimony at hearings.
Why waste the time and money to investigate and then not demand the truth and real answers to all the questions?
Whose interests do they serve? Not mine!
Stephens was content to let the big oil boys slide(and they lied).
Specter let Gonzales slide about Bush's illegal wire taps(and never gives a straight answer).

If you want to get upset, try asking Congress why they are in such a hurry to renew the Patriot Act The Patriot Act will continue to violate our right to privacy by giving the Government too much power. They will continue to abuse the power and you can watch as your civil liberties are decimated.
It has little to do with terrorism but alot to do with Big Brother.
Damn people, this is serious shit!

The media frenzy can be a distraction from real issues.
The White House uses these same tactics as a distraction in terror alerts, press releases and the State of the Union Address.
We already know the State of the Union.. It's fucked up..

The Rage of Islam

Violent protests have unfolded in Europe as a result of Cartoon depictions of Mohammed and now spread across the globe. The radical Muslims have taken their hostility to the street once again. In the name of Islam and all they hold sacred to protest and protect the image of Mohammed.. Yeah right..

Some refer to the Nation of Islam as the Religion of Peace.. Again, Yeah right..
They have no problem satarizing other religions but resent a cartoon that suggests Islam has become a religion associated with bombings.. Go figure..

A cartoon of Mohammed with a bomb in his turban somehow seems appropriate.
Go ahead and thank these radical Muslim factions for all the positive PR.
If these protests were non violent that would present a more thought provoking image for the so-called Religion of Peace but that is not the case. The first images of the crowds were men with turbans wrapped about the head and covering the face firing AK47s, spray painting the front door to businesses and setting fires. The mob mentality takes over.
The crowd cries Death to the Infidels. They will take hostages and sometimes behead them.
The rape and murder of innocent civilians appears to be OK with their perverse view and self righteous beliefs.

These cartoons are a result of a history of violence, not just a cheap shot at all Muslims.
Muslims shot and killed women and babies in Ghandhinagar in '02.
Muslims tried to bomb the World Trade Center in '93.
Muslims killed American troops aboard the USS Cole with a bomb.
Muslims bombed the African Embassies.
Muslims bombed American troops at the Khobar Tower.
Muslims terrorists killed 3000 Americans on Sept.11th.
Radical Muslim factions proudly take credit for bombings.
They use suicide bombs, roadside bombs and shoot rockets into schools full of children in Israel.

This is part of a much larger problem.
Radical religious factions that see themselves as righteous in their beliefs. Condoning any action no matter how violent and spilling the blood of innocents. Muslims taking hostages and the beheadings is as perverse as so-called Christians bombing an abortion clinic.
The acts of radicals has to be a tough pill to swallow for the non violent and truly religious.
Watching these twisted freaks undermine all that is good within their beliefs and way of life.
One can only hope that calmer heads will prevail and the murderous element will be brought to justice and held accountable.

peace be with you
