Strings pull puppets, not selected hands of God

It’s amazing how dramatic these last 4 years have been for America. Entering this election my worry goes deep. I remember what America was like when you could go out and play all day without a thought for personal safety, today do your kids play unsupervised? Is this country safer? That didn’t start on 9-11 folks. Our social situation goes much further than the “3 year blinders” everyone on the political right uses. Some reading will say 'sure my kids play, yes", but think about people and cities where rampant gun possession exists: think about them before you give money into the NRA’s cold hand.

Corporations: get out

What are the motives of our elected officials? It does not seem the public is capable of controlling this exploitation any longer thru its current representation. I mean, we can’t even catch a tiger by its toe. Notice not one person in congress, Democrat, anywhere, wondered out loud what the President was wearing in that jacket. Can you believe it, as obvious as it is he’s wired? We can’t stop the corruptive force unless we can focus on it, yet Democrats are stung by little labels like liberal-bias lofted by isolationists.

Thru talking to many people these last weeks, it is clear there are many economic Republicans very turned off by what they see. In my humble view, the most damaging thing that exists in our society is the systematic takeover of our government by corporations. Notice the subtle “outsourcing” of military tasks. Notice the IMF. Notice the UN, the US Congress and Senate and how the prescription drugs bill was a giveaway to corporations.

And the Piece de resistance, selected as the substitute for the failed re-appearance of christ in 2000?

Earpiece emperor, the selected puppet President George W. Bush

Puppets = strings = Corporate ties = "I call you my base"

I wonder why corporations have ANY say in our government at all, corporations provide jobs and economic stability, but have little to do with our social stability which is what governments are supposed to provide for us. I know it is hard to make a clean separation of the two. We are a people that want jobs and economic stability. Isn’t it logical then that we don’t need corporate influence in government because it is built into the social interests already?

Strings pull puppets, not the selected hand of God

Our social corrosion is because of men like Bush (must read... interferes in Ukraine's election now look at that subtle move to mess with ours) and Tom DeLay who are entertaining corporate interests and aligning themselves with God while they lie to who they should represent. George Bush you are no deity any more than me or the reader. And you seem to have more or less ruined every business/public trust you have touched. God’s create, you fake wars.

We are here to live life, enjoy it as best we can, take care of this planet and use our minds to grow. Corporations are there to MAKE MONEY. Corporations use every means at their disposal to this end. Corporations bribe people of 3rd world nations for favors such as public works projects. Are we naïve that this might not go on inside our nation too? ENRON. We may build ourselves a nice fortress here, but we will not be safe until we are in control of our destiny as a true majority. Right now our destinies are in the hands of banks, military contractors, big oil, and we nod our heads in hip hop to big media empires and Camel cigarettes. Our destiny lies in the hands of about 25% of America’s people.

Failure to look at history

Did you know that a new species of human was discovered on an island in the Pacific? It was only 3 feet tall, as an adult! Its 18,000 years old. Think about the "3 year blinders" now. We know of at least 3 separate species of humans now, when you include us and Neanderthals. Our distant history is now richer and more complex than we ever thought and there is probably more to discover. At the same time we are viewing a side of our culture still challenged by the reality of evolution. Facts don’t seem to penetrate this belief system sometimes. Can you believe this still exists in what is supposed to be the finest educated country on the planet? No wonder it’s so easy for so many in the US to be conned!

Faith is useless when scrutinizing your government. Faith is something you have with spiritual pursuits. When you give your faith over to a government, you open yourself up for rampant exploitation. That is why I call it “blind faith”, because you lose control over your beliefs, putting them into someone else’s hands but those same hands sit in the hip pocket of the machine. That machine eats anything which poses a challenge so if your faith becomes inconvenient to a corporate interest, guess what… Bye! It's not just that, it is that these sorts of beliefs systems exist globally. Russia is a shining example with what it is doing to the Yukos oil company. This kind of behavior and many more example of it are why, globally, we need to eliminate this host of sock puppet governments still out there, including the one in the White House RIGHT now. This isn’t just happening in Africa baby. They are feeding off of us, so wake up.

The Better question: safer now than 30 years ago?

Our safety has been deteriorating for over 2 decades. It is not because of terrorists. It is because of ignorance, poverty and corruption. Happy people don’t commit crime and terrorists are terrorists as the result of their environments. Do you know any happy terrorists? I am no apologist and so will not be cornered into talking about this in “Mission Accomplished” terms or risk not being on our side. Everyone is responsible for their own choices. Poverty causes terrorism as much as any other external factor. It also causes overpopulation which leads to a host of other social issues. Some American and European policies such as farm subsidies are contributing to global poverty which, logically then influences the spread of terrorism.

Fanaticism is complex: there are many, many reasons around the world which make people fanatical. The world is a reflection of us; fanaticism does not exist in a vacuum and if it exists peacefully nobody I know seems to mind its expression. Let’s not forget it exists in varying degrees in every country in the world, including America.

I suggest America help the world hault terrorism's spread by the unselection of George W. Bush as President.

Hiding a health problem ???? heart rate issues isnt a health problem. Its a fact of life at his age and it can strike anyone. its not a sign of anything imminent. I guess he just doesnt want to advertise every detail. A part time pace maker doesnt indicate a massive roblem. There may be 0.01% chance of having an attack in any year, but he might wear it just in case.

And given the threat of assassination/terrorist attack, he may have a secure personal communicator .. a wireless of some sort.

If the think on his shoulder starts talking, he takes a drink of water, listens , and decides what to do ...
eg he doesnt want to let the plotters know they have been rumbled.

eg if someone thing happened, like a terrorist attack , or theres been some other incident, he is aware of it when question time starts.

Bush needs to be be prepared for the questions. His helpers will be identifying all journalists and what angles they might
take ...

Nice site with one exception- all gun owners are not NRA/Bush supporters. I opposed Nixon, Reagan, and now Bush. I have many friends who are gun owners and at the same time opposed to these hypocrite politicians who give lip service to America and democracy while their every action is to make us a pariah nation of have mores and have nothings, of lords and serfs, of the served and the servants. Would that we had Abraham Lincoln back, to lead our great nation to the fulfilment of it's promise once and for all.

Terrorism a result of poverty? Terrorism a result of unhappiness? Do you know how much Osama Bin Laden is worth? Did you realize these people believe they will be accepted into heaven because of their terrorist actions? Obviously not because you wouldn't make such an ignorant statement if you did. Helpful Hint of the day: Do some research, it helps!

In response:

>Terrorism a result of poverty? Terrorism a result of unhappiness?

You mischaracterized me: result of unhappiness? No, all I asked were how many happy terrorists you know.

>Do you know how much Osama Bin Laden is worth?

More money than me.

Did you realize these people believe they will be accepted into heaven because of their terrorist actions?

Yes I do. Its called fanatiscism. Something that exists in every country in the world in one way or another. Its in the article.

Obviously not because you wouldn't make such an ignorant statement if you did. Helpful Hint of the day: Do some research, it helps!

Thanks for the message. We disagree. My article is supported with many links. Post one single link about a happy terrorist.... otherwise, you are confusing your electoral victory with being right.

In my opinion the Republican party has manipulated a small minority: homosexuals and it is disgusting. They put it on the ballot to bring the most biggoted voters out because they knew where that vote would go... Win at all costs. Lost the humanity in the process my friend. Gays did not deserve this... I feel sad for their community.

Various people sent me mail saying that it is awfully fishy that the exit polls and final results were substantially different in some places. I hope someone will follow this up and actually do a careful analysis. Does anyone know of a Website containing all the exit poll data? If we go to computerized voting without a paper trail and the machines can be set up to cheat, that is the end of our democracy. Switching 5 votes per machine is probably all it would take to throw an election and nobody would ever see it unless someone compares the computer totals and exit polls. I am still very concerned about the remark of Walden O'Dell a Republican fund raiser and CEO of Diebold, which makes voting machines saying he would deliver Ohio for President Bush. Someone (not me) should look into this carefully. The major newspapers actually recounted all the votes in Florida last time. Maybe this year's project should be looking at the exit polls. If there are descrepancies between the exit polls and the final results in touch-screen counties but not in paper-ballot counties, that would be a signal. At the very least it could be a good masters thesis for a political science student. The Open voting consortium is a group addressing the subject of verifiable voting.

So what's going on here? Answer: the exit polls are accurate. Pollsters ask, "Who did you vote for?" Unfortunately, they don't ask the crucial, question, "Was your vote counted?" The voters don't know.

Also on the show: In a CounterSpin exclusive, journalist Dave Lindorff will join us with his scoop on how the New York Times killed a story about the device George Bush wore on his back during the presidential debates. The spiked story included compelling photographic and scientific evidence that would have contradicted Bush's claim that the bulge on his back was just a matter of poor tailoring.
