News sources, MSM and the mouths of horses…

See, we constantly get told, on this site and any other site that opposes the wars and the occupations and such, that we’re listening to the “Liberal Mainstream Media”. Huh? The most frequently criticized “Liberal” media are as rabid a War-mongering Mob as Fox, they’re just more polite about it. Sometimes more polite about it. The bullshit with the “Ground Zero Mosque” is being whipped up by the MSM CORPORATE whores just as much as the FOX corporate whores. With an insidious difference, they’ll use weasel words rather than coming right out and saying “Hate Muslims! Hate Islam! The REAL ‘Obsession’ is our Hatred for all things Middle East!” like FOX does.
Same with the Wounded Warrior bullshit the Pentagon tries to fill a swimming pool with, and then dump us in. The fault of causing all those wounds and deaths isn’t in the Anti-War movement, it’s in those who twist their own words to make it appear just, and righteous, to CONTINUE the wars and start others.
Why would they do that? Money.

What did you think, that the Corporate Press would cut the throats of their Pigs who lay the Golden Turds? Of course they won’t. People who were recently in the Military Establishment have a little bit of an excuse. Not much but some. It’s called Stockholm Syndrome. “Jonah, from whose rectal orifice did you pull that one?” but, straight from the Horses’ Mouths is more like it. Stockholms is well documented because the United States Military uses it to defend against confessions made by U.S. POWs. In every non-declared war in my lifetime, the only POWs treated as such by the U.S. military were those held prisoner by the people the U.S. soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines attacked, in their own countries, without a declaration of war.
Like McCain. VietMinh “cong” soldiers were handed over to the Saigon Govt troops for torture and execution, not as POWs, but as criminals.
Fairly typical, Bush demanded that any American soldiers taken prisoner by the resistance groups in the nations of Iraq and Afghanistan be “treated humanely under the terms of the Geneva and Hague Conventions” while denying any such treatment to the prisoners captured and tortured and killed by OUR soldiers.

So here’s how Stockholm’s works. It’s a principle of Pavlovian Conditioning. Like when Dr Pavlov trained his dogs to slobber every time he rang a bell.
In the Chinese prison camps during the Korean War, the SAME techniques used to train those dogs, and to train the U.S. soldiers and really those of every established military in the world, were called “brainwashing”.
Who says so? The U.S. Army

When we write of War Crimes committed by the U.S. Army, our sources certainly aren’t the Tame Media. They’re the often conflicting reports issued by the Army and… from the soldiers themselves.

The recently discharged soldiers, well, they’re still hopped up on the Industrial Strength Koolaid administered by the Army. In-their-face confrontations against the lies they were told so often is a good therapy for that.

It also helps that the Army pushes so hard to wash the brains that many of the soldiers reach a threshold where they’ll not go further. It’s worse in this war than any other we’ve had, because now the Army has psychiatry and drugs to help them keep pushing the soldiers past the limit.

You can tell the recently discharged soldiers because they’ll be all foaming at the mouth denouncing their comrades, their fellow soldiers, who have passed the critical milestones on the road back to reality. Their treatments of two, Max Cleland who lost three limbs and almost half his body weight as a result of a mortar shell. And Ron Kovic, born on the Fourth of July.

Celebrated as Heroes as long as they were willing to play the role of Token Cripple for the military “I’m proud to have lost limb and function in VietNam fightin’ for Freedom (freedom to comply, conform and obey) and the Murkin Way!”
Like Sgt Popavitch and his eye.

Some people manage, through a lifetime of drug abuse, like alcoholism, and pure hatred, to keep that spirit until they die. Others go crazy. Get physical problems from trying to internalize the PTSD that kill them. A heart attack at 40, systemic failure that’s more normal in a 70 year old happening in their mid-30s.

The solution offered by the military and their “toughie” supporters? Ridicule their comrades who were wounded every bit as bad as Cleland and Kovic and Popavitch as “weaklings”, and usually the ones who come to this website screaming and bitching about how badly WE are disrespecting wounded people.

Straight from the mouths of horses.

When confronted by logic, as in, where is their Defense of Freedom when it comes to Americans who disagree with them, they start chanting slogans.

Typical of brainwashing victims. When they’re confronted with the Ultimate, where were their protests when Kovic and Cleland were crucified in the Right Wing “liberal” MSM, when Kovic was dragged from his wheelchair by pro-war PIGS for daring to protest, where was their outrage against THAT treatment of wounded warriors?

When they start chanting that only those who went to war are qualified to speak on the subject, unless the ones who speak against their former masters contradict what the Former Masters have to say… in which case being dragged from a wheelchair is considered “justice”.

Sometimes the therapy works and the Pavlov Dogs of War are freed from their internalized psychological chains.

Sometimes, like with War Profiteers Ollie North and “Gunny” Bob Newman, it never worked.

It’s always worth the gamble, though.

Filipina teenage actress allegedly has Botox for role

That’s… taking things a bit far. OK, it’s taking things WAY too far. Teen actress Charice has “anti-aging” treatments including Botox, WHY?
The encouraging of young girls as young as toddlers to wear makeup, when makeup is designed specifically to make you look YOUNGER, that’s a marketing scam worthy of note, and people have noticed it.
So the notion of injecting Poison into your skin to look like a Teenaged girl, understandable in somebody who’s much older than teenaged, seems kind of redundant in a child.
Imaginary Conversation in The Sandbox “yes, dahling, this makeup takes years off my appearance, now instead of looking 18 months I look like a newborn, only, you know, not as tiny. However, the diet regimen my beauty counselor has me on will take care of that part as well”
“Oh, yes, I can see the results… that one over there, though, she’s 4 and looks 5… perhaps she could use the benefit of your counselor?”
Our society is SO screwed.

The whole scenario is like something I saw on Alfred Hitchcock long ago, where a lady is having a home beauty treatment (although from the plot “lady” wouldn’t be the proper word, “bitch” seems more appropriate) and the beautician, who has been abused by her for years, assures her that the treatment will keep her looking young forever.

Tetra-ethyl lead, the ingredient in Gasoline that nobody uses anymore, toxic, people who can remember back that far or watch a lot of older TV shows remember “Regular or Ethyl?” then it became Regular (with the lead) or Unleaded. Yeah, people used to pump your gasoline for you at service stations.

Also a preservative once used in mortuaries. Beautician wasn’t lying about that part, by the time she got around to telling the Extra-Abusive client she was already paralyzed from the lead.

Tea-Potty successfully test-fire Dumb Bomb, counters “Smart Bombs” nicely.

Remember the infamous Speech boycotted by whole School Districts including D-11 locally? The Hoam Skule parents, aided and abetted by the Tea-Party, in turn organized and funded by Fox News, combined to convince themselves that Education Is Satanic.
Frightened Tea-Baggers kept their kids from hearing the Zombie-Brainwashing message that educational excellence is a good thing.
In doing so, they set up a series of events that has led to among other school districts the Kansas City MO ISD closing half their schools, school closings are the Drug of Choice for the “conservatives” because quite simply, the only way they can hold any kind of political power is to Keep the People Ignorant. They remind me of the “Gone Tertiary” mobs in the movie “Omega Man”, led by a former (until they burned down every radio and TV station as “evil”) Rush Limbaugh think-alike named Matthias. With their torches and robes, burning down schools, libraries, museums, any form of culture and education, chanting “Evil! Evil! Evil! Evil!”
BUT… there is a bright side to this. As painful as it seems, they’re tearing their own Empire down. Already, after 8 years of Bush junior and 12 years of the Reagan/Bush Regime breaking down American Public Education into a 12 year Political Indoctrination session for each kiddo, the Pentagoons report that American kids who they wanted to recruit into the Murder Machine, aren’t qualified for it anymore.

They’re too fat, too lazy and too damn dumb.

The Fox OUTRAGE! Nation has dumbed itself into a corner. They want world-wide power, but the people they were counting on doing their fighting for them, (Because let’s face it, the NeoCons ain’t ever going to fight for their own gain, they have always counted on Other People to be stupid enough to do it for them and always will) got the necessary Political Indoctrination, where they’re Stupid Enough to believe that they’d be “fighting for Freedom”…

But it came at a price, they’re also too stupid to operate advanced weaponry. And fat and lazy. This according to the Pentagon.

It’s a major OOPSIE!! moment for the Right WingNuts. And that damage was accomplished BEFORE the mass hysteria inflamed by the Fox Propagandists. “Evil! Evil! Evil! Evil! Evil! Evil! Evil! Evil! ” They’ll drag American War Technology so low that they’ll never again be beaten down by Small Third World Nations like North Korea, VietNam, and Somalia. Because they’ll be too stupid to find their way over there and wouldn’t have enough High-Tech weaponry to make them feel safe enough to start the wars in the first place.

No more being humiliated by Barefoot Armies.
