Leno? Conan? The Real Score is: Media-2 Other Corporations-1 & Everyone Else-0 !

NBC Wars - Just another Weapon of Mass Distraction with Media Taking the Ultimate Prize!

Well, as an American citizen, I have just about had it! Between the Supreme Court decision to allow a Pandora’s Box of financing to flow into the hands of Television & Radio Moguls for Campaign ads to the Contrived Drama between Jay Leno & Conan O’Brien that made light of overspending millions of dollars on his last show, I have one question for Americans:  

Don’t we need Schools & Teachers & Health Care & Jobs & Infrastructure & Renewable Energy? Don’t we need high-speed rail and insulated homes? Don’t we need lowered tuition so low & middle-income students can actually attend college? Don’t we need representatives that are more focused on doing their job than in raising money against bigger corporate influences?  

WHY ARE WE ENCOURAGING ALL OF THE MONEY THAT CORPORATIONS COULD BE USING TO FINALLY BECOME A LARGER PART OF THE SOLUTION TO INSTEAD, FUNNEL THESE BILLIONS TOWARDS MORE SELF-SERVING CAMPAIGN FINANCING? Didn’t we learn anything in the last 2 years? How will this help California’s financial rating? How will this help states gain funding and support for job growth?  

IF YOU DOUBT ME, JUST WATCH THE STOCK MARKET AFTER THIS RULING! I’M SURE IT WILL SHOOT BACK UP AFTER YESTERDAY’S DROP FOLLOWING THE ANNOUNCEMENT ABOUT OBAMA’S STIFFER BANK REGULATIONS. Now, investors can be comforted their interests will be maintained by “their” government representatives.

AT LEAST IT APPEARS THAT OBAMA IS BACK ON THE SIDE OF THE MASSES ONCE AGAIN & WE ARE WILLING TO SUPPORT HIM IF HE IS!

DOES THE AVERAGE AMERICAN REALLY HAVE ENOUGH TIME & MONEY TO TRY TO FIGHT & MATCH CORPORATE FINANCING JUST TO GET REPRESENTATIVES WITH THEIR INTERESTS IN OFFICE? I think not! This is an argument Newt Ginrich will lose in the long run! He is snowballing his followers once again for his own personal gain.  And don’t feed me that “Trickle-Down-Dung!” It hasn’t worked before and it will never work because most people with power get greedy and more self-serving the more privilege you give them! 

SHOULDN’T WE BE SPENDING OUR MONEY ON SOLUTIONS, NOT ON CAMPAIGNS?  

SHOULD UNIONS BE SPENDING MEMBER’S DOLLARS ON BUYING CANDIDATES? SHOULDN’T THESE MEMBER DUES BE DIRECTLY HELPING MEMBERS AND THEIR FAMILIES INSTEAD?  

IS THIS WHY THE MEDIA DID NOT COVER THE LEAD UP AND THE DEBATE ON THIS ISSUE BEFORE IT WENT TO A VOTE?  IS THIS JUST ANOTHER WEAPON OF MASS DISTRACTION WITH THE NBC WARS & OVER-COVERAGE OF HAITI TO ALLOW THIS TRAVESTY?  

WHERE WAS NPR DURING ALL THE DEBATES ON THIS RULING? YES, NPR has also become subject to corporate interests and beating a dead horse with singular story distractions! I have been getting tired of the repetitive tunnel vision media coverage this past year and this takes the cake! My listener loyalty just shifted another place to the left and I don’t know if NPR is residing there! 

I AM SO FURIOUS AND DISTRAUGHT AND APATHETIC AND WORN OUT BY FIGHTING AGAINST THESE INFLUENCES AND NOW IT SEEMS THE GIANT JUST GOT A WHOLE LOT BIGGER AND BADDER TO FIGHT AGAINST!  This feels like the nightmares I used to have as a child where my mother and father would be fighting with pillows. His pillow would get bigger and bigger while hers would get smaller and smaller until poof! It was gone!  The voice of the voiceless just got smaller like those pillows. 

THANKS ABC, NBC, CBS, NPR, FOX, TNT, & ALL OF THE OTHER TELEVISION AND RADIO NETWORKS WHO WILL BE THE ONLY ONES WHO TRULY PAD THEIR POCKETS WITH EVERY ELECTION AFTER THIS LATEST SUPREME COURT RULING . THOSE ADVERTISING DOLLARS JUST GOT THE ADRENALINE BOOST THEY NEEDED TO KEEP YOU IN BUSINESS!   Congratulations Rupert Murdoch! I am sure you and your peers are quite pleased with this ruling!  

NOW, WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO TO MAKE SURE SCHOOL CHILDREN IN LOS ANGELES HAVE BREAKFAST AND LUNCH AND TEACHERS AND CLASSROOMS AND SUMMER SCHOOL TO KEEP THEM OFF OF THE STREETS?  

OR WILL YOU JUST INVEST YOUR PROFITS IN THE FUTURE OF PRIVATIZED PRISONS TO MAKE ALL OF THOSE PROBLEMS GO AWAY?  

As an American, I am so disgruntled with the warped priorities of popular culture that falls so gracefully into the hands of the manipulators, while ignoring the real important issues. The drama of the day seems to wipe the American conscience clean of all accountability or responsibility to insist we have a “fair and balanced” country. Shouldn’t we be heading in the other direction to make elections shorter, fairer and less expensive as they do in other countries like Australia?   Ahhhhh!!!!!!

Is There Anyone Out There That Can Help us??????http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XKazKb5f79A

MICHAEL JACKSON-YOU WILL ALWAYS BE A MIGHTY AND BRIGHT LIGHT!

This Is The View Of Michael I Had Next To My Bed As A Tween.

This Is The View Of Michael I Had Next To My Bed As A Tween.

July 25, 2010. The 1 year anniversary of Michael Jackson’s death. Below is the post I wrote from Mexico while I was grieving like so many.  Since then, I have learned that Michael Jackson and my grandmother, 2 very significant people in my life, were both born and both died on the same day! The connection I have with MJ is only stronger with time. If we can learn anything from his life, hopefully it is to appreciate genius and to care for our children because the early wounds of childhood do manifest in the strangest ways in adulthood.

My lifetime work with wounded children verifies this and Michael Jackson’s life story is yet another reminder. In his memory, we can honor MJ by finding a child to love and to mentor and to be gentle to our own. Firm and loving guidance with accountability is what our children need; not cruelty. MJ reminded us of this often; to think about the children!      I can hear his voice right now!

PREVIOUS POST BELOW DURING THE WEEK OF MICHAEL JACKSON’S DEATH:

Can’t stop crying

Why is this affecting me so?

Why do you mean so much to me

Though I never knew you personally?

A loyal fan

For the past 40 years

As a child, you introduced me to music for the first time through ‘ABC’ & ‘Never Can Say Goodbye’

When I became single, you inspired me to free myself through dance with ‘Rock With Me’

With ‘Thriller’, you showed me the power of the genius to keep creating

With ‘Beat it’, you exemplified the cathartic release of anger through expression.

In ‘We Are the World’, you showed me the power and responsibility of celebrity to serve others

In your work with children, you shared my love and reverence for the precious responsibility we have caring for children across the globe.

I remember going to see you in concert in Denver, Colorado

Seeing you sing, ‘I’ll Be There’

Was one if the highlights of my life

I cried then too

Though they were tears of joy.

I feel and believe that now

You are hovering above the planet

With loving angels

Seeing it shine and vibrate with your love

Your gifts

Your music

Affirming above all

Why you came to us

You Beautiful Being!

The highest powers there are

Have already forgiven you for any and every

Thing you ever did that may have been incorrect, inappropriate, or inconceivable

As we all will be equally forgiven someday too!

God’s Love seeks only Purity

And because of this

I honor your Pure Soul, Michael

Your Bright Light

The Bright Light of your Spirit

That will live forever

In every song of yours we play

In every video of yours we watch

In every photo of you we see

Thank you Michael Jackson

WE LOVE YOU!

You have given us so much!

YOU HAVE MADE A CHANGE!
