EYE-BALL Opinion on – The Real TRUTH – Politicians Lie and Bureaucracy help cover it up …

Title:
The Real TRUTH – Politicians Lie …
… and the Bureaucracy help cover it up …
The 2010 non-fiction Movie – “Fair Game” – staring Sean Penn and Naomi Watts as Mr and Mrs Joe Wilson, is a political drama about the ‘Weapons of Mass Destruction‘ (WMD) lie pushed upon the American people and the world at large as justification to go to war in Iraq.

he movie plot is a perfect example of how a lie is formed to fit the will of the Leader and his advisors – how the evidence to support the lie is constructed – and how those who know the truth become marginalised – and then put in harms way because of the cover-up undertaken to defend the lie.

This Joe and Valerie Plame Wilson story can be further read at the Wikipedia site linked here.

The reality of what we all know about the WMD bullshit – and how easily we have forgotten how Politicians behave to get what they want and satisfy their ego’s – continues to visit us every day.

PM GILLARD has stood before the Australian people and told a lie countless times – her sincerity in reinforcing the lie appears genuine  – it gives lip-service to the saying that they who have the megaphone can say what they want – the millions of people screaming back can never be heard.

How it works – a political leader finds a media-baron to support them – i.e. Murdoch – they then fill their papers, TV News, and airwaves with negative stories about those who they don’t want to win and positive stories about those they want to win.   The people are brainwashed by continued negativity – they have questions about it all but where do they get the answers?   The human attention span is diminishing – life and its pressures and stress’ get to us all and then we can’t be bothered and just go with the media flow of opinion.  That is how easy it is …

And to get it to this point – the politicians change the media ownership laws on cross media ownerships and market share to allow them to have greater influence – how do we fuckin’ know what is true anymore – the media never report the negatives unless they have changed allegiances – and then they will bury the former supported Government …

That takes us to the very question – are Politicians bought and paid for?

In the movie example mentioned above – Vice President Dick Cheney is portrayed at the Nations traitor – the actions of him and those who worked for him caused great embarrassment and loss of life upon the American people and Iraqi citizens.

The message is that Democracy as practised by the ALP caucus in ousting RUDD was not the will of the people – it was not a part of how we view our democracy should work.  When one watches a political press conference these days with Julia out front directing traffic – getting to pick what questions she chooses to answer and not answering those with a pointy end – is exactly how we the people become deluded to what is actually happening.

It is good for the soul to remind us every now and them that complacency is how America killed itself – it allowed GW Bush to lead them by the nose with lies and manufactured evidence to complete an agenda that is still to be revealed in all truth.  His daddy never got to finish the job on Saddam and whether GW Bush Jnr was sent in to finish the job is still a question hanging out there.

On the home front – the Carr appointment and Gillard walking the tightrope of ‘misleading the House’ on questions about his appointment came and went without further recourse – it is as if when the news shifts – all the past is forgotten until the wheel turns and the story resurfaces again in connection with another lie and mislead.

We own it all – and if we sit by and watch it descend into chaos and crap – then it is us who were responsible – we let the leaders do to us what they believed was in our best interests – we knew is was not – i.e. immigration policy, carbon tax, NBN, schools program, insulation program, MRRT, all debt accumulation and future revenue schemes to pay back the debt – but it will be someone else’s job to fix the mess left behind …

    Lets not forget 9/11 (mossad op) to take us into Afghanistan…and now the ‘nuclear threat’ for the predictable Iran war (v Israel).

    As for the pollies, I’ll quote my favourite comedian George Carlin…..”forget the politicians, they’re irrelevant. The politicians are put their to give you the idea that you have free choice. You don’t, you have no choice.”

    Government is intended to lift the level of economic prosperity. What we seem to get is we all come down to a lower common denominator. My trapper story here is so apt.

    There are 10 trappers and their families in a closed economy (an economic region). Each trap 5 racoons daily, and their children help with tanning the pelts, an economic bounty of 50 pelts per day. The racoon meat sees all families happily fed.

    One trapper becomes a poacher, and therefore total trapping falls to 45 pelts per day. He poaches 3 raccoons from each of the other trappers snares each day so distribution is 9 by 2, and 1 by 27. Trouble is he can not possibly tan so many pelts so he pays one trapper 4 pelts to help tan. Economic ouput has fallen to 40, 8 by 2, 1 by 4 and 1 by 16. (there is a lag in trapping due to breeding season, abililty to set and empty snares and so on). The poachers market share has fallen dramatically so he hires another trapper to poach for him. Economic output is now 35 but the second poacher has increased poaching so that the residual trappers are now only getting 1 racoon per day (you can work out the economic distribution). On only one racoon per day the honest trappers and their families are starving. There is civil unrest. The poacher now hires one trapper to be his marshall. Economic output has now fallen to 30 pelts per day. The honest trappers simply can not afford to buy more snares. And so it goes.

    Israel wanting to invade Iran is frightening. USA backing them adds. Would tolerance of Iran help, probably not. We can only fear the consequences and responses of Russia and China. China now telling Syria to pull their heads in does help in small ways. What an armageddon.

    Not only has the GFC crippled the world economiclly – it has given rise to hesitation by its Leaders on so many levels.

    The financial cost of war is now relevant both in terms of ‘debt’ and the human cost and its political relevance with a US election months away.

    The World is largely a crippled existence – and those Nations who have survived better can take advantage where and whenever they want. Populations who are best suited to an impoverished existance are best placed for the hardships to follow.

    Herman – your ‘trapper’ story whilst interesting lost its way in the telling – but by the same token it makes us aware that the ‘poacher’ is forever nipping at prosperity and where ever excess occour. I liken the Bin Laden story as a great tale where he was the ‘poacher’ who took down America in economic terms – wars America are still fighting and trying to extract themselves from – raised their debt to US$15 trillion in the process … America have no way out and their hubris over Bin Laden has been their downfall … with the help of an idiot like GW Bush …

    It goes to show that the good guys do not always win regardless of the outcome of the war …

    Israel trying to fight above its weigh in taking on Iran – is political intimidation trying to force America into a fight it does not want or cannot afford …

    For far too long israel has postured and beat its chest with America as its backup – if they continue to do so then all of us will be in a bad place sometime soon.

    I just wish the World would take a break and give itself a pause so they can hear the cries of the people doing it tough …
