Dumbing Down of America, Being told what to think

Image stolen [from here]

Corporations are spending millions, if not billions, to get you to think a certain way and to not resist their take-over of your life at your expense. Other puppeteers of the US Government are using billions of your tax dollars for the same propaganda purposes. Family members influenced by what they see coming out of the corporate media from Fox News, CNN, MSNBC, etc are telling others in the family to think the same way or risk being cast out of families and even social groups.

What happened to Free Speech in America?

Well look around, we’re under armed military occupation [video below], do you really feel comfortable to say what you think, even at the family dinner table? How about in a blog, to co-workers, or to the general public in social settings. You might just be putting yourself at risk for more than just being a cast out, a pariah.

There seems to be a large disconnect between US President Barack Obama and the Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, especially on foreign policy positions. Both are split on the developments in Libya and how to handle President Ghaddafi. RT Contributor Wayne Madsen believes Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is the one advancing the real US agenda, she reminds me of Henry Kissinger in a pants suit.

Pete Seeger: Where Have All the Flowers Gone?

Text with video:

Uploaded by on Feb 18, 2008

On July 26, 1956, the House of Representatives voted 373 to 9 to cite Pete Seeger and seven others (including playwright Arthur Miller) for contempt, as they failed to cooperate with House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC) in their attempts to investigate alleged subversives and communists. Pete Seeger testified before the HUAC in 1955.
In one of Pete's darkest moments, when his personal freedom, his career, and his safety were in jeopardy, a flash of inspiration ignited this song. The song was stirred by a passage from Mikhail Sholokhov's novel "And Quie Flows the Don". Around the world the song traveled and in 1962 at a UNICEF concert in Germany, Marlene Dietrich, Academy Award-nominated German-born American actress, first performed the song in French, as "Qui peut dire ou vont les fleurs?" Shortly after she sang it in German. The song's impact in Germany just after WWII was shattering. It's universal message, "let there be peace in the world" did not get lost in its translation. To the contrary, the combination of the language, the setting, and the great lyrics has had a profound effect on people all around the world. May it have the same effect today and bring renewed awareness to all that hear it.
