My unbelievable experience working for the government…

The writer of this piece wishes to remain anonyomous.  In God We Trust from the dollar bill

I love my country and enjoy everything it has to offer as a natural born citizen. America is by far, the greatest country in the world which is why people from every corner of the globe  flock to our shores. I am an Airline Pilot, a believer in what our founding fathers had in mind when they wrote the Constitution, and a census taker.

As an airline pilot, I have some down time to pursue other endeavors. And like others during this weakened economy, I’m looking for ways to create income to ease the burden. When I noticed an online advertisment for census-takers, I filled out the application. Within an hour, my phone rang. A cordial man explained the job and gave me instructions to where to take “the test” to see if my aptitude matched what the position required.

The test” is a joke. Anyone with an elementary school education could pass it easily.  I was hired in November of 2009. I was told that I would start in January. In April 2010, I finally got the call to come to training, umm…only five months late.

The training was conducted in a church building just a few miles from my home. All census work is performed within the area of the workers residence. I expected a ‘formal’ experience, possibly a toughly regulated program within strict guidelines. The kind of experince that one would expect upon entering a ‘government position.’
 
But instead, I was exposed to pathetic government bureaucracy. Rumors have always surfaced about the wasteful spending habits of our nation, the taxpayer-funded programs that our elected leaders in Washington fight and cry over, well, I’m here to tell you, the rumors are all true.  

I’d never worked for our government previously. And since it was the ‘government’, I never expected anything less than a stringent work ethic. So, when I plopped into my seat for a weeks worth of training, I was all eyes and ears. After all, I wanted to do a good job for my country. 

The instructor, a  pleasant enough, retired (from the government) woman began by having us raise our right hands and take the same oath that our military, members of Congress and the Senate, even the President take while being sworn into office.  Our fingerprints were taken, so the FBI could check our criminal histories. ID badges were dispersed and bulging folders of training materials were handed out. The retired woman read from a scripted training booklet. Boredom seeped in fast as I soon wanted to drift off to sleep. Her words were repetitive and redundant. I felt like I was in some kindergarten hell, but kindergarten was more fun.

We were being hired to knock on doors of those who had yet to mail in their household questionnaires. Ask 10-15 simple questions using pencil and paper, not some high tech encrypted super computer one might expect of an FBI or CIA agent along the front lines of a war zone.

Each interview, we were instructed, would last approximately thirty minutes. I could only imagine dragging some poor soul through about five. After all, this wasn’t  brain surgery. The questions were non-evasive and basic, so when she began teaching us about interview techniques, reading each question ‘exactly as written’, having us pair up and practice interviewing each other, going through the use of maps and charts to find homes around our own neighborhoods, how to fill out uncomplicated daily pay sheets, how to handle reluctant responders, and how to deal with everything from a dog trying to chase us down and bite us to being met with a gun at the door, my mind realized this was going to be a long and painful experience.

Some took everything seriously, hanging on every word like their lives depended on it. Myself, and two others, turned to humor as a way to pass the time, even discussing the weather as we sat near-by the exit doors to freedom.

After close to forty hours of mind-numbing, excruciatingly boring conversation, finally, it was over. My certification as an official census taker was about to begin. I had been blessed, sworn in, and was ready to pound the pavement doing the official work of the U.S. Government.

I had several days off in a row from flying, so I dove in eagerly and with enthusiasm. My first “cases” were within walking distance of my home. I started at a townhouse complex with twenty addresses on my list. The first three weren’t at home. The next ten were surprisingly open to my simple instructions to collect their information.
 
I used humor while interviewing. Doing so, seemed to ease any potential of conflicts that  might arise from someone standing at a doorway wearing a government ID badge.

Within my first three hours, I had completed fourteen interviews. My signature was scrolled at the bottom of each one, giving them my official seal of approval.

My group had fifteen interviewers for the assigned area. We were told to meet each day and to turn in our completed forms. Each group had a Crew Leader and an Assistant Crew Leader, both there to accept the paperwork and hand out new cases as needed … or so I thought.

When I walked through the doors of McDonalds, ten members of my group were sitting around talking furiously about disgruntled responders, the weather, comparing interview results, and waiting in line for their turn to face the leader.

When my turn came, I placed the completed stack of forms before her. She counted each one and scanned them closely, making sure each “I” was dotted and “T” was crossed. She grinned and asked when I was working next. I told her the following day. We then scheduled a time and place for my “required” observation session. Just to make sure I had everything down pat. Hmm, okay, talk about overkill.

She arrived late the next evening then walked beside me as I rang doorbells. I moved between each one efficiently and with purpose, scoring three interviews within thirty minutes. It was about this time that she tugged on my arm and said, “You haven’t worked for the government before, have you?”

     “Nope, my first time.”

     “Well, let me give you a little advice.”

      Surprised, I responded, “Okay, I’m open.”

     “You need to slow it down, I mean, slow down a lot, otherwise you’ll work yourself out of a job.”    

     “I don’t understand?”

     She shot me a stern look. “Slow it down, okay? We’re all wanting and counting on this thing lasting a full eight weeks. If everyone works like you do, we’ll be done  sooner than required. I’m counting on this income to last and you’re working it at a pace that’s well above what’s needed.”

I didn’t say anything as I thought of my other job where efficiency and productivity are the keys to getting promoted and appreciated. What I was being told by this woman was foreign to me and certainly not my style.

     “I don’t think that I can work any slower.” I spyed the swimming pool in the distance. “Would you rather I lounge around that pool for a while between interviews?”

     She giggled. “No, all I’m saying is to learn to play the game, okay? Help us out a bit here.”

       I nodded as I thought, ‘Damn!’

I walked her to her car, then resumed interviewing pondering what she’d said. Are most government employees like her? Surely not! After all, the taxpayer’s money is paying the salaries. I completed another five interviews with little effort.

The next morning was another “required” meeting. Even if you didn’t have any completed forms to turn in, you had to make the meeting, if for no other reason than to sip on some cheap coffee and fill out an hour, or so, of time on a pay sheet. They wanted you there. I turned in my forms from the night before, which were the last of what I was assigned.

     Proudly, “I’m ready for some more. I completed all I was given,” 

     The ‘Crew Leader’s’ jaw dropped. “You’ve finished them all?!”

     “Yes, ma’am.”

     “We don’t have any more for you just now.”

     “You mean that’s it?! That’s all to be done for an eight week job?”

     “Yes.”

I couldn’t believe it. I sat through five days of the most mind-numbing training experience known to man for only two days of actual work!!! 

        “Go on home now. If we have any more, we’ll give you a call. But, don’t forget to keep coming to the meetings when you’re in town.”

     “If there’s no more work, why come to the meetings?”

     “To keep you updated.”

     “Updated?”

She looked a me as if I must be clueless. “Just come, okay? It’s another hour or so of pay plus your mileage.” She leaned toward my face. “It’s the government’s money, buddy. Don’t you want some of it?”

       I walked out thinking, ‘Damn! Is this for real?’

Just back from a trip, while unpacking my suitcase, the phone rang.

     “We’ve got more work for you,” announced the ‘Crew Leader’.

     “Sure, I’m ready to go.”

At the next meeting, the ‘District Crew Leader’ sat among the crew. He pulled me aside. “I hear you’re doing a great job.”

     “Thanks”.  I responded.

     “I’m going to recommend you for the next wave. The census keeps going after the initial work is done.”

     “What will I be doing?”

      “Pretty much the same, although the questions go a bit deeper. We ask about income levels and stuff like that. And there are three more waves after that.”

     “Three more?”

He slapped me on the back and belly laughed. “You betcha, it’s easy money, boy. Might as well take advantage of it all, everybody does.”

 I’d become friendly with the ‘Assistant Crew Leader’ during training; a retired IBM employee who was just as amused and disgusted by this as I was. He winked from across the room as I approached.
“Call me after the meeting?” he whispered as he handed me a folder with twenty cases inside.

     When I called, he answered laughing.” You won’t believe what’s been happening.”

     “Do tell.”

     “This is the biggest joke I’ve ever seen, man. Apparently everyone from myself all the way to the boys in Washington think things are going too quickly. The budget is around a hundred million for this thing, and it looks like it’ll be completed with forty million to spare and three weeks early.”

     “So, that’s great then for the taxpayer.”

     “Man, you don’t get it. I overheard them talking at the district office. They want all the money to be spent, otherwise, they won’t get as much when the next census rolls around, get it?”

     I felt sick inside as I responded.  “The Government at its finest, huh?”

     He chuckled.  “You got it, man. They love it when everyone turns in eight hours of pay for only doing one or two interviews. There are people sitting around in offices everywhere not doing a damn thing, just clocking the hours and the miles. I know that half on our team sit at home and do nothing. Then claim, they’re out knocking on doors and saying no one is home just so they can justify the hours. You’ve turned in more interviews than anyone.”

      “Hard to believe, I’ve been gone the last few days.”

     “Doesn’t matter, everybody’s gotten the talk to slow down.”

      “Then why are they giving me more work?”

     “Because you’re helping to balance the workload, it’s all just one big game. We have to have someone work with work turned in They need a few like you as the deadlines draw near. I’ll tell you, the inflated pay sheets I’ve seen lately would blow you away. They don’t seem to care when I bring it up. It’s like how much the expenses and bills are don’t matter.”

        Again I exclaimed, ‘Damn!’ to myself as I put on my badge and went about the job feeling good that, at least, I was getting the job done. I  was proud to do a good job for my country. But isn’t that the goverment way, ‘one’ works for the benefit of ‘many’.
 
I didn’t care what my ‘Crew Leader’ thought. The census has existed since our country was founded and it needs to be done so that the correct amount of money is appropriated for schools, roads, and political seats in the Congress and Senate.

The problem is that when the government is involved in anything, its inefficiency is unbelievable as evidenced by my short-term experiences. Our government programs are basically given a blank check with no one looking out for the taxpayer’s dollar and many exploiting this fact. From the Presidential level all the way down to a simple census employee, corruption and greed are everywhere, like a cancer that doesn’t stop.

I’ve continued doing the census work. Another “wave” begins next month; each one has been as inefficient as the last. But, I am proud to do my job with integrity. The American taxpayer gets value from workers such as myself. Can the current President or any elected politician in Washington make such a claim? I seriously doubt it.

From my experience, I think that our government needs a serious overhaul. They need accountability to the people for every dollar spent, term limits for elected officials to prevent career politicians and the “good ole’ boy network” of Washington corruption, and a simpler way of handling the budget without needless earmarks.


Happily the elections in November are an indication that America, as a sleeping giant, has awakened again as it did during the aftermath of Pearl Harbor.

I was captured under the Obama spell and I voted for him. It wasn’t long before I knew that I had made a terrible mistake.

Vote wisely in 2012.      

My opinion concerning the MSM…

by Ann
and also some of my opinions on a few other things…

The Main Stream Media, ABC, CBS, NBC, etc.. are just plain irresponsible, promote propaganda and agenda, self-serving and otherwise. I see no real journalism on these stations. It’s all just BAD reporting. I can barely watch them. I will flip to them for a moment, but then change the channel back to FOX.

The MSM continually tries to criminalize conservatives with no basis, or facts. It is as if they are an arm of the Obama propaganda machine. By his own words, Obama doesn’t like FOX, talk radio and, or ‘anyone’ that disagrees with his liberal, progressive, socialist agenda. So, he, his backers and his propaganda machine of the MSM ‘tries’ to vilify and shut up anyone that challenges them.

Obama is a blame machine. In my opinion, he is the weakest, worst, and most treasonous man to ever be in the White House and ever since he has been there and while he was conning the masses, the MSM has sunk to a level that is below vile. Their obvious goals are to lead the American people into their liberal and progessive agenda. Obama is a media creation, a puppet, prompted and promoted by Oprah and BOTH attended Rev. Wright’s church of hate… which the MSM conveniently forgets.

The MSM latest reporting on the horror that occurred in Arizona, by an unstable person, was the worst. To blame Palin, Limbaugh, Fox, Beck, the Tea Party, or anyone else for this action, except, the man that did it, is irresponsible and criminal reporting.  

When Kennedy and others were shot, we didn’t react in this manner, even as there was and is talk of conspiracy.

Obama’s take over of the Internet shows his fear of free thinking, free speech and communication. Obama and his backers including the MSM are trying to have only ‘their’ convoluted side heard and to hush and vilify eveyone else.

Obama and his administration are taking away people’s rights and freedoms almost daily while they ‘claim’ to care for the well-being of America. It’s all BS!!!

I am ashamed of Obama and those that put this man into office and that includes all those in the MSM, Oprah, the View and many, many more. I will not watch them for more than a few minutes and when I do, I am sickened.  I used to respect Diane Sawyer. I don’t any longer, as she is a part of ‘the agenda’… as is Couric and many, many more. Barbara Walters is a total sell out.

Oprah is an opportunist, greed, control hungry woman. She, now, has a network to try and sway the masses even more than she already  does. Those who can’t or won’t think for themselves. ‘Her experts’ … give me a break! Sure you can glean ideas, insights and awarenesses from many and you should always be learning, but this ‘Oprah endorsed expert channel’ is disgustingly like a power grab to infuence every area of her ‘viewers’ lives. I stopped watching her, years ago and will never watch her again

And I have never been over-weight, have worked out all my life, know how to cook and decorate, read all the time, and learned on my own about health issues, etc. And I did all this without ‘Oprah and her experts’. Fancy that! Had Oprah never been on the air, my life would be no different. You don’t need this greedy, self-promoting woman and her ‘experts’ for anything! And after all her diet and workout expertise, she is still overweight and has become wealthy on her viewers following her every move… Grosses me out!

And the day, I did watch her, just happens to be the day Obama was on her show promoting ‘his book’ … I could see immediately and knew that this man was a con and a fraud. I can barely stand to look for at him or Oprah!

Just Oprah’s stupidity in her various ‘diet choices’ shows how lost and wrong she is about so many things. Listen to this women as your guru at your own peril, a woman that will exploit and make money off every tragedy and event that she possibly can. Oh, you can be sure ‘good ole Oprah’ is trying to get interviews was as many affected by the Arizona disaster as she can. She exploits for ‘her profit’ everything that she can. Why won’t this woman go away? Why? Her personal narcissism, greed and self-serving agenda wrapped up in ‘seemingly’ goodness… OPEN UP YOUR EYES and see her agenda! Just my opinion…

The View is terrible. They vilify and attack everyone that doesn’t agree with their progressive, liberal agenda. Oprah is more subtle in her persuasion. Which is the more dangerous? You decide. I say both. They just come from different angles, no different than any sales person.

Regarding ‘gun control’, that is, now, being more focused upon because of this one unstable man’s actions. When there is an accident in a car, the driver is blamed. So, why when a gun is used is the ‘gun’ is blamed? A car can be just as much a weapon as a gun.

Everything on the MSM is reported for political agenda and it is unAmerican, poor, poor journalism and dishonesty and manipulation in reporting.

There is a reason that FOX is the top rated by viewers.. as of now, it is the only fair reporting that there is.. they offer both sides.. and have had a line open to the White House or anyone else who cares to be on there, or to comment.

Should Fox become muzzled, we will all know why.

Nothing on the media, political discourse or anything else contributed to what occurred in Arizona. It was done by one unstable man. And he was triggered by the misfirings in his brain.

To use and exploit this horrible incident in the manner that the MSM and some politicians are trying to do is despicable and shows an inability to think clearly, a lack of character, common sense, and good reasoning skills and shows a dishonest and manipulative intent and character. And, in my opinion, those that are doing this should be taken off the air and out of office. I don’t want to listen to them, or have them in America’s government… in my opinion, they are not good for our country, or our people.

(Curtesy of Karen Kirk)

Are we really to believe that if a politician poses in a photo, aiming a gun at a target, that they are ‘ipso facto’ contributing to an atmosphere of hatred and violence? In that case, are advocates of this argument willing to blame the victim? Because Gabrielle Giffords did the same.

(Makes the blaming of Palin look as twisted as it is…)

The only free speech that the MSM, Obama, and others are for is their own.
They wish to muzzle everyone else…

These are just a few of my opinions..
Let me know yours…and above all else…THINK FOR YOURSELF!!!
God Bless America!

I am Exploding about Government Greed…

by Ann
Government Greed is going to destroy our great country. As the government grows infiltrating into every area of our lives bloating out its need for more and more from the private sector, it is only making us all more subservient while harming job growth and abundance in the private sector.

We don’t need government interference in our lives. We need to SHRINK the government, NOT grow it!

This current administration is the worst that has ever existed. Obama has no idea how to run a business much less a government. Or as a ‘community organizer’ is he doing exactly as his handlers and backers instruct him to do? All the recently passed legislation was sitting there waiting for a liberal puppet to push it all through.

He and his backers and handlers are trying to turn us into a socialist country where they ‘control’ everything and next will come communism where they ‘take’ everything.

 

“I PLEDGE RESISTANCE, TO THE CZAR, OF THE DIVIDED STATES OF AMERICA, AND TO THE COMMUNISM FOR WHICH HE STANDS, ONE SOCIALIST, WITHOUT GOD, DIVISIBLE, WITH HEALTH CARE AND WELFARE FOR ALL.”  Ellen Dannan

Is the above quote what we will all be pledging soon? It will be, if we don’t stop this runaway socialist train dead in its tracks!


The government takes tax dollars from the private sector and pays themselves excellent salaries and benefits as they expand government agencies ad nauseum.  So, of course, they want higher taxes to support their lifestyles and jobs. And, of course, they want more and more bills passed that take more of the private sector’s income. Greed, control, power over the people has become their motto and agenda. Achieving this, they are set for life and satiated in their power hungry and greedy souls. This  has nothing to do with good, or doing good for others. In fact, it is the exact opposite of good… It’s EVIL!  It is  GOVERNMENT GREED!

The government acts like they own our incomes, our lives, our very existances, as if at birth, we become owned by the government. Our children’s inheritances are taxed to the hilt for government use, and ‘they’ think and behave like we have no choice in the matter.

As they take from us, they put us down. This current administration is actually INSULTING America and its people as they spend, spend and spend our money!

Government medical coverage, vacation benefits, and retirement plans are better than most in the private sector, except at the highest company levels.  How did this occur?  Government unions are one reason. These unions are run by government employees who are paid with taxpayer dollars to screw the American people who are the actual employers of all the government employees.  How MESSED UP is this???!!!

The American worker pays these people salaries, benefits and retirement.

THE GOVERMENT WORKS FOR THE PEOPLE!  WE ELECT THEM!  HAVE THEY FORGOTTEN THIS AS THEY TAKE MORE AND MORE OF OUR FREEDOMS AWAY??!?!?!? Stating that it is for our own good, when it is for their good, not ours! DUH! Anyone who can’t see this is clueless and must be brain dead walking around in some FOG!

To observe the government workers, the ones that we put in with our votes, being incompetent, wasteful, arrogant, and self-centered disgusts me. 

The government tries to blame private business for any mistake that is directly, or indirectly actually the fault of the government… 9/11, the financial meltdown, the BP oil spill, our dependence on our enemies for oil, the space program, insecure borders, our high debt, weaker military, a split country, high unemployment. Then ‘they’ ‘tell’ us that the government can ‘fix’ it all.  

 
If I were President, I would fire every radical extremist in the government, reduce the number of departments, reduce the number of employees. Get rid of all government employee unions and roll back government spending.

Support and strengthen the military with the best equipment.

Repeal all the Obama socialist laws.

Secure our borders and enforce all immigration laws to the letter. Return the Pledge of Allegiance and singing of the National Anthem to schools along with the saying of prayers.
 
No one would dare send a bill to my desk that was NOT paid for in advance. No bill would be sent to me, or passed with earmarks, or any kind of inappropriate spending. No one would send me a bill that appeared to be unconstitutional, or that did not first and foremost take in consideration the
will of the American people.

Bills would be available to all Americans for plenty of time for their review and that no bill would be voted on by Congress until it was fully read and understood by those voting on it. 
 
Terrorists and traitors would be punished to the full extent of the law and they would be called what they are, instead of some ‘politically correct’ BS!

I would open up every area of our country and waters to the discovery and production of any and all natural resources and desolve any government agency that failed to do their job properly.  There is little to no accountablity in the government. It has become a bloated, greedy mess of incompetents. 

Follow the constitution as to its original intent. These are just some of the things that I would do, if I were President. Perhaps, we need a housewife in there to really balance the budget!

Our government has become arrogant, big spending, foreign to the American people, inefficient and incompetent. 

Obama, his associates, backers and handlers need to be investigated. Obama should be tried as a  traitor to the American people. Nothing that he promotes is good for our country, or our people. 

He and his wife insult America at every turn. Then when they see that their ratings are going down, they ‘change’ their ‘rhetoric’ to try and ‘sway’ the masses. Their insincerity and con are the only transparency that we see in their administration. They are doubling talking, dictator-like puppets of those with an agenda that will ‘change’ America into something hideous and repressive under their control  and of the elite that ‘think’ they know better for your life,  as ‘they’ gain more wealth and power. 

What have we done to ourselves and our country?  The government is ‘supposed’ to SERVE the people!

Be aware that Democrats believe in larger government. Republicans believe that less government is better. This is simplistic, but how can more government ever be better?

It can’t!

We, the people, can’t support it.
It will take our whole country down. Then the government will just come and take everything that we have, including, perhaps, even our lives. The government is a greedy monster out to take, control, manipulate the masses in order to sustain itself.
 
What, we the people, pay the Government should be more like a small maintance fee, with our being in control of them, not them in control of us…

There should be no death, or estate taxes as this is actually double taxation.

We should be able to decide who and what is done with our estates and who we leave the money to, with absolutely no interference from the government.  Family takes care of their families. Government butt out! The government wants to do away with family and business wealth in the private sector and claim it as the government’s… this is a dictatorship. Confiscation of wealth is unAmerican! It is what our founders came here to get away from.

We have allowed this to get way out of control and it is time that we SHRINK the government. Fire them all, if they don’t listen to us. Fire them and start all over again!

Let them be the unemployed. And their retirement and pension needs to be reduced considerably…

SHIRINK! SHRINK! SHRINK the government before it destroys the American dream and our way of life!

Close all our borders! Limit all foreigners from entering our country especially from Muslim countries and countries that don’t like us and our way of life. The reason the Government won’t do this is because of ‘secret’ deals and agenda to bring in ‘more’ to vote to keep them in office, to destroy America from the inside out. In my opinion, that is what Obama, his backers, handlers, and associates are after.

The greedy government knows real Americans see through their self-serving agenda
.

Otherwise, why and how did we let immigration get so lax? Also, if foreigners want to live in America, then they need to adapt to our country, not us to them. Speak English, dress American, and become legal!  If they don’t want to speak and be like us then they can go back to where they came from….Why are they in our country anyway? Is it to ‘change’ us and make us like them? Well, we don’t want  or need to change!

America is the greatest country in the world and it is this way because of our consititution and our freedoms and our free spirited people!  

This is my opinion… 

What do you think? Let’s discuss…

In This Media Frenzy, Where Are The Real Journalists?

 by Ann

When I was in college, we were taught that it was of upmost importance to report something with NO bias. It was a journalist’s job to give NO opinion and certainly not to allow personal opinion to flow through a story. That a journalist’s duty was to report the FACTS and to CHECK them out thoroughly BEFORE reporting or writing anything, INTEGRITY was stressed and stressed and stressed again.

 

OPINION was to be given only in an opinion article, but NEVER from a ‘real’ journalist.  Journalists were fired for anything less than reporting FACTS, researched FACTS. FACTS, that could be backed with PROOF.

 

Today, we have a media frenzy that writes about, talks about, and gives opinions about EVERYTHING. Little seems to be researched thoroughly. It’s the shock value that is more desired than truth or facts. Either that or all the SPIN and LIES are to COVER-UP that what IS really important and REALLY NEEDS to be investigated and revealed.

 

Where are the real investigative reporters? Would one stand up? Would one start doing something about this media travesty? Is anyone out there with integrity? Someone that is not driven by some bought and paid for agenda? Might there be one or two that want to REVEAL the TRUTH?!

 

The main stream media has become like a propaganda machine. They report like brainwashed robots. They back stab and vilify those who don’t agree with them, behaving like spoiled angry children. Who is really behind this? Who owns these media conglomerates and who benefits from the ideas that are being promoted? Example: GE owns NBC and we KNOW GE’s connections. So, ummm, no journalism there… only propaganda with driven agenda. Buy GE’s light bulbs, so the planet won’t get hotter and watch NBC as they sell you what they want you to think and believe. YEAH RIGHT!

 

They all seem to attack Fox and why? Why does what Fox reports, bother the others so much? Why does what Fox reports, bother the White House so much? It seems to make certain ones crazy and they go all out on the attack. Calling it FAUX NEWS, when it actually appears like the ones screaming this are the FAUX ONES. It’s childlike and what it shows is how threatened that they are? Or is it plain PROJECTION?! Why? I ask. Why are certain media entities so threatened by others? It’s AGENDA and has nothing to do with real, honest news reporting. ASOLUTELY NOTHING!

 

The White House even FIRED a woman because they thought that she was going to be on FOX NEWS. How utterly dictator-like is this behavior. IT IS WRONG! IT IS UNAMERICAN!

 

CONFLICTING AGENDAS AND BRAIN WASHING! PROPAGANDA!

And again, journalism is not ‘supposed’ to have an agenda. It is simply ‘SUPPOSED’ to be reporting the news, even things that they don’t agree with or want to report.  Journalism is reporting FACTS, all the FACTS and NOT covering up things because they are asked to or slanting them a certain way because they are told to or because they are PAID OFF by favors.

 

What we have NOW is nothing, but agenda! And the agenda is driven by who owns the newspaper, the website, the TV station, etc. And it is not subtle any longer. It is blatant agenda of policy, financial changes and those in control making money and wielding power and control over the masses. It is so obvious, that it reeks, but still some can’t discern. Or perhaps, many can, as they turn away from certain media entities and go to the others.

 

Then we have all this Hollywood and entertainment news reported over and over. It’s predator-like, intrusive, presumptive, and sometimes wrong and many times, outrageous and can even ruin lives.  And it takes the attention off the real news – the news that affects each one of our lives, like what bills are being pushed though that take away freedoms and the real background information of those in politics who are making these bills and policies. This is being done daily.

THEY think that if something is repeated often enough that the masses will believe it because ‘they’ think that the people can’t THINK for themselves.

I am insulted by all this media propaganda! I am tired of it. I am tired of the threats of censorship from our current administration. I am tired of the lies, the cover-ups, the reactionary actions without investigation, the wrongly placed blame, the reckless spending, the non-reporting and the blatant LIES… did I mention the lies?!

 

The first thing that a Dictatorship does is to buy off, threaten, and control the media, in order, to control the minds of the masses.

 

Do we as a country want paid for propaganda coming from the media that are leading many by the nose into an unimaginable hell?
 
Where are the REAL JOURNALISTS who are willing to risk everything to reveal the truth, the facts!?


FREE THE MEDIA! 

FYI – ‘THE VIEW’ –  ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT – OPRAH, ETC. are NOT real sources of news. They are bought and paid for spewing and for entertainment.   Enjoy, but don’t mistake it as the real news.

I noticed this morning that for the few seconds that I could stand to watch THE VIEW.. that Joy Behar used the word – SPEW.. interesting … very interesting! 

SPEW! SPEW! SPEW!  SARCASTIC SPEW! JUST SAYIN! 

 

Grow the Government?!



Grow the Government!
So, that the people are working to support the government more than themselves! Is this what you want?

Do you want the government telling you what to do? Do you want to send your money to the government first, then whatever is left over, if anything, is yours? Then the government tells you how to live your life while they spend your money on what they want to and give it to whom that want, regardless of what you want. All your rights are gone. Your choices are not your own. You and what you have are owned by the government.

 

Pelosi flies around in an expensive jet, stimulus money went to her family’s business, and now, she is throwing a party for herself. Well, why wouldn’t she? She has accomplished what she wants. Bigger government and to take all she can from the people and Pelosi lives the life of Queen.

 

Obama is taking a trip on our dime. Just after the American people strongly told him that we don’t like what he is doing to our country. He leaves the country. Obama is not about America. He is about the world. From everything,t he and Pelosi have done, they are out to destroy America and indebt her people to a bloated inefficient government while giving themselves power and wealth. Then they want to share the American people’s abundance with the world, in order, to lower the standard of living for our country. I don’t know who these Obama people are, but they are not Americans. Obamas in Indonesia

George SorosGeorge Soro’s backs all this. He pulls the strings to try and take America down. He is an atheist who thinks that he is god. It’s as if he is playing monopoly. He is having fun! He brings down currencies and now he has set his sights on America. He brought the bank of England down and three other currencies. And doing this makes him weathier and wealthier. The Clintons stayed with Soro’s daughter during the wedding of their daughter. They are all in it together. They are trying to destroy our Consitution and take away American rights to mesh us into their New World Order. And they twist and turn their words, ‘Leviathan-like’ to try and ‘appear’ that they are good.  Leviathan

But it is of pure evil. It is to rule, dominate and control the people for their purposes. And it is done under the guise of ‘good’ behind which is the evil of their control, in, and of, everything that they touch. And they are fooling the blind, deaf and ignorant into doing the dirty ground work for them. These people think, hav been brain-washed to think that they will be rewarded. When evil has no allegiance to anyone. It loves to destroy its own, evil falling in on evil is the height of their goal.

They control the media. Just look at the main stream media, they have become propaganda machines. There is no real reporting, or journalism. It’s all propaganda.

Look at Oprah. Oprah Winfrey Admits to Tipping the Scales at 200 Lbs.She tries to get every new story to claim the audience for ratings and to widen her sphere of influence. Oprah is Obama’s backer. Obama is Oprah’s pet. They both attended the America hating church of Rev. Wright. She started out a fat black woman and after all her diets and diet promotion and money gleaned off the masses, she is still a fat black woman.
 Her wisdom and choice of diets are as bad as her choice for president. Is this a woman to listen to or follow? NO!  She is an opportunist. A narcissist that wants to influence and to glean a following to satisfy her power and her greed.

These are not good people. Even though, at times, they appear to do good things. Some good must be done, in order for the facade to take hold.
Then we have The View, one of the most pathetic shows on the air, besides the ‘housewives of whatever town’. These women push their agenda and try to shut up and villify anyone that disagrees with them. Now, if everyone is due their view, why is that? Might these greedy, loud and obnoxious women be catering to the backers of their station? It’s all about agenda…theirs not yours. Barbara Walter’s father had mafia connections and she is tight with Kissinger and those out to take over our world.. listen through their agenda…  these people are out for themselves not their viewers. They only want you for ratings and to further their agenda and that of their backers.

My suggestion is to stop watching these vile, predator-like, pandering shows.

Talk shows need to stick to Hollywood stupidity, or whatever the dumbed-down enjoy and stop trying to pretend that they are anything more…

The government needs to be shrink, starting with Pelosi and her wild congressional spending spree. Those in the government need to earn less than the people in the private sector and not reap large rewards from working in the government. Working for the people is reward enough. They need to limit their time of service. No one should be a ‘career’ goverment lifer.

The people in the private sector need to keep more of their money and be in charge of how it is spent and to whom it is given and who they leave it to when they die. The Government needs to BUTT out of our lives!

Obama needs to be thoroughly investigated. Pelosi needs to be removed from government. Obama needs to be impeached for treason to America. Soros needs to be shut up and kept away from and out of America! And tried for crimes against humanity.

 

Boehner has already stated that he will take commercial jets to get back and forth. A responsible government CUTS spending and SERVES the people, instead of spending wildly and living like dictators or kings.


The Obama’s remind me of the Dictatorship of Peron! Under the guise of ‘doing good’, they  stole, robbed and raped  the Argentine people while living high on the hog.

If our government doesn’t stop spending, the American people will be subservent to the government and  will be living  and serving the benefit of the bloated, wasteful government  and that is what those like Soros want. These people see the masses as commodity just like the talk shows do. They have power to influence and the people have none.

Take back your power!

Obama states repeatedly from his agenda-filled lying mouth that he only needs to convince the people that he is right. Yeah right! We tell him we don’t want something and he just thinks that he needs to state is differently. Brainwash us!  

Don’t listen to the liberal, greedy lying, talk shows that are getting rich off of your viewing them. Oprah is getting her own network to further influence her ‘followers’. What fools need to follow this woman and her hidden agenda.

Think for yourself… listen then discern… Look at motives.. see beyond the hype.. see behind the curtain..


SHRINK THE GOVERNMENT! WE HAVE NO NEED FOR WHAT THEY ARE DOING! AS IT IS ONLY TO BENEFIT THEM AND NOT YOU!

We must all think alike, be alike and like the same things!

by Ann

Political correctness, propaganda, mind control, actual brainwashing is taking over our country led by the media and the government’s self-serving agenda.

It’s their goal to tell the sheeple what to think, what to say, what to eat, how to vote, what to like, how to live. Instead of being educated to think for themselves or to inform them, ‘they’ are trying to ‘train’ people to do what ‘they’ want. And the ‘they’ is the government backed and funded by ‘certain’ industries and people. And it’s to secure their positions, and gain control, in order, to have power over the masses. And to get power and control over the masses, ‘they’ must brainwash them into submission.
 
People are getting dumber and dumber making them easier to be led. They don’t want to think for themselves. The sheeple sit in front of the TV, computers, pay attention to hand held gadgets, and follow most anything that they are fed, apparently without the ability to discern the truth. Or they keep so busy running around that they aren’t really hearing what is being said and are not recognizing what is being done.

If they hear it on Oprah, or some other talk show or some reality show or some agenda-filled news program, they take it as truth, and incorporate it into what and who they are – instead, of researching, thinking about it and coming to their own conclusions.

This is how a totally unqualified man became President of the United States. He became a media creation started by Oprah and here we are with our rights, liberties and lifestyle on the brink of destruction. He is a community organizer and this meanst that he convinces people to do as he leads them. He states that if it’s repeated over and over that the ‘sheeple’ will believe it. And when they don’t, he splashes his face in the media and repeats it again and again, then one more time, and even in a different way, and even contradicting himself. He will say ‘whatever’ he ‘thinks’ is needed to be heard to ‘convince’. He talks down to people and it’s insulting to us all. His statements and what he does and is doing shows no respect for the rights and will of the people. It only shows allegiance and concern for his agenda and that of those that back him.


Much is being covered up about Obama, who he is, where he came from and who backed him and it is being done by those that wish to control and become powerful and wealthy off the ignorance of the sheeple, along with him. He is their puppet , their front man, their snake oil salesman, and he loves the attention and power over others. He never realized that he SERVES the people!

Individual freedoms are being taken away daily as the rights of the people are taken away under the propaganda of ‘equality’.

We are not all the same! We all have different lineage, talents, genetics and circumstances. We all have rights, but we are not all the same and no one can make us the same. Unless, they supress us, control us into submission by rules, laws, fines, penalities and more control. In other words, take away our freedoms in the name of ‘equality’ and we all become alike and more easily controlled. Then we are a weakened people, able to be herded,  more numbed out, then led to slaughter. We are being treated like animals,  specimens, or chattel, even product, instead of human beings.
 
Take away a human being’s individuality and you have a zombie that is ready to be told what to do. Because the ability to discern and to think for self is diminished if not destroyed.

We all have different likes, dislikes, morals, talents, intelligence levels, aptitudes, body types, families and lifestyles. And this is our individuality and our choice.

Take indvidual choice away and give it to the government and what will be created is the evil of control of everything that we do. All choice and individuality will be taken away, mushing us all into one gray mess. Choice is what makes America what it is and is why those who came here wanted to be here.
FREEDOM!

CHOICE! The freedom to be an individual without the government, ‘ruling class’, or rulers stifling who that you are.

Think about this hard and long.

If they take one freedom away after another, another, then another, pretty soon you might not realize how totally your life and choices are being taken away, even GONE and that you are being controlled by ‘others’ led by the government and under their control.

Then when ‘they’ swoop in and take all of your rights. Will you be ‘surprised’?! When  they turn on you, the ‘you’ that ‘thought’, ‘actually brainwashed’ to think that ‘they’ were doing such good, nice things for you. When they take your property, your children, your car, your, gun, your choice of education, your choice of where to work, your choice of what to eat, your money; etc. They take all of your resources until you are totally dependent on them andTHEY TOTALLY CONTROL YOU! Will you like it then?

AND…If you don’t like or disagree with someone, it doesn’t make you a racist or a hater. It only means that you disagree and would rather be with ‘like kind’ and that you have an opinion… an individual opinion. It makes you who you are,  unique, an individual with rights and freedoms.

We were made individuals by our creator and placed in individual circumstances and are different for reasons. It gives interest, life, creativity, challenges, growth, and we are different colors for reasons. There are different races for reasons. Do you think that the different races and nationalities are an accident? It was done on purpose. And the races and nationalities have different strengths, weaknesses, and traits and they were created this way for a reason. We were not created alike. We were created different. We are all different. We are each unique! There is a reason for those differences. It’s called individuality. And it is GOOD!

Not to harm anyone, but if you don’t like or want to be around certain people that is your right and privilege.

Some people love the color purple. I don’t. Does that make me a purple ‘hater’ or a bad person? No! It just means that I have an individual opinion. What if the government decided that we should all wear purple because it was a more ‘environmentally’ friendly color (don’t even get me started on envirionmental BS) Think of a world where purple is the only color that we can wear. How mundane, gross and disgusting would that become? Even if you loved the color purple, you would end up tiring of it.

We lose our individuality and we will lose what we are about and that will ultimately destroy us all. It will make the world into nothing.

Take away individual likes, dislikes, opinions, rights, freedoms, and try to make everyone the same and equal and you lose freedoms, rights, energy and life!

We must strive and fight to maintain our individuality! We must shrink the government and grow the private sector! It’s the power, ingenuity and desire of the individual that makes America great and we need to expound on that, rediscover it, and all its facets and instill it in us renewed, and make it stronger!

The freedom to live, think, have opinions, like or dislike, talk, express, choose for ourselves!
