Pick a scandal, any scandal, whichever GOP “look over there” distraction you prefer, but know, we are the central intelligence for solutions: first step – stop electing pretend patriots.
If your head is spinning from media hyperbole, you might be a misinformed patriot, but when you use the power of distractions from building a Walmart to save a JC Penny from pounds of Bangladesh flesh, trapped in GAP of collapsed Target fashions, you might be a corporate patriot.
If you think putting men in charge of preventing rape in the Military is best, you might be a triple threat candidate for Fort Hood Army sergeant first class, or Fort Campbell sexual assault prevention program manager, or AF head for sexual abuse prevention program, dug in five-sided symbol of male power.
‘When there’s a 35% increase in unreported sexual assault incidents over two years, totaling 26,000 up from 19,300 in 2010,’ And The Hill & Media are pushing fake Benghazi scandal, while ignoring fashion statement of 1,100 dead (up from 146 dead in 1911 NYC Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire – mostly women 16—23 years old ) and forgetting if Obama was micro-managing our tax returns, he would have found those MIAs belonging to Mitt Romney, you might be a selective patriot.
BUT, we do have real scandals and we need real patriots to address them, like Jim Graves (MN), Ed Markey (MA) andEd Marksberry (KY), not to mention Terry McCauliffe saving Virginian women from the “War on Women” warrior Ken Cuccinelli who doesn’t know his running mate “well enough.”
- 1st Scandal: the immensely complicated constant search for balance between protecting American civilians & military both here and abroad, without delivering us into the evil of surveillance cameras overkill and diminished freedom of the Press to investigate and inform. Drones & Gitmo vs. Acts of Terror – Foreign & Domestic, compete to diminish our freedom to Marathon, Parade and Gather Together without fear.
Of course, when Media chooses to report unverified, repetitious, if it bleeds it leads, opinionated garbage in garbage out, over-simplified soundbite drivel, then “The Fourth Branch of Government” has committed ‘Mediacide’ and with pre-emptive strike, traded in its First Amendment Freedoms, for “Citizens United” abuses.
- 2nd Scandal; if “We the People,” continue re-electing, to The House of Representatives, Governors’ Mansions and the U. S. Senate, self-serving, power hungry, cracker bribed parrots, expecting soaring eagles, and, that alone, a President can dictate to all three to deliver change we can believe in, we might be ‘Ostrichsized’ patriots, but if we are the inept or immoral ‘play within the play’ caricatures playing Americans for fools, we might be a Bachman or Mitch patriot.
If we continue to believe the myths of distraction are truthful, our national truth becomes a myth.
America’s heritage comes from immigrants, and was not intended as whitewash cover for Heritage Foundation scandal promotion. Working middle class Americans weary of corporate & government “bull-hockey,” just might be common sense patriots, asking “What About Us?” But if you love the Cantor banter of a House divided gone Hollywood with on camera grandstanding, then you just might be a scandal monger patriot.
If you use “Deficit Ceiling” to camouflage budget cuts to education, after school programs and elder care, you might be a European austerity patriot.
Yes, IRS zealots, like Hoover’s FBI, have abused Mission since 1959, so instead of fighting Affordable Health Care for all, or a possible first female president, why aren’t we demanding fewer game show hosts in Congress and more jobs voting patriots?
If you dismiss minority H. S.dropouts, ignore University grad’s $200,000 student loan debt and Banks “Dual Tracking” homeowners into foreclosure, you might be a ‘me, me, me’ patriot, but if you truly believe ‘there but for the Golden Rule,’ you are a real American patriot, who is not fooled by GOP obstructions….
