WE HAVE NOTHING TO FEAR BUT MCCAIN AT THE HELM-video

Freedom means freedom to think and have an opinion. If we are afraid of expressing our opinions, we are not free to know the truth.  Questions are essential to discovering truth, but questions for real truth need to be based on reality.   Ever notice how some interest in society seek to suppress free speech and opinion by equating fiction with reality?

The McCain adds have gone negative 100%(*), with rampant misleading statements alleged to be true.

The questions being generated by wild character allegations are designed to shift the subject to paranoid fear and tribal conflict. That is patently un-American and anti-democratic to the core; the core of the Constitution, and the Bible to some extent, but not some traditions f some Americans. We are a diverse people with diverse belief’s. To take associations vastly out of context, and to reassemble them into misleading ad-hominem perversions of truth, are unacceptable to a free people. Not because they can be freely expressed, but that they are pandering to our lowest natures, blurring the abilities to discern fact from fiction. Everything but putting the nation first.

A free people can not survive for long on untruthful innuendo’s pretending to be honest questions. Emotionally leading associations “work” to disable critical thinking abilities. These, when patently false, serve to undermine the very nature of our national contract as citizens of one country. Disingenuous inference rendering is a continuation of the deceptive context creations and false association foisted on the American people these last 8 years. Appealing, not to out “Better Angels”, but to the darkness of ignorance. Calling on we voters to chose from the base lines of evil, while evoking the cover of good.

I can see why the party of fear and emotional insecurity has to divert attention, not just from the economy they have let greed take over, but from the one who would be our president, and his seriously disturbed insides. The comments in the video might be personal, but I doubt that they are false.  They are surely not fair or balanced, but not to worry.  Fair and balanced do not necessarily have anything to do with discerning reality as it is.  Reality does not chose sides.

NEGATVE EXPRESS DELIVERS QUALITY OF ITS OWN ENGINE

A desperate campaign has gone over the edge.

100% of McCain adds are negative. One third of Obama’s are.

Astounding to hear of Obamas alleged terror connection with an associate on a local committee funded and attended by Republicans. Just contemptuous of the truth. In what contempt, then, are you and I held?

What disdain is there for We the People, to have this disingenuous and outright misleading slurry being spewed into the campaign for us to consume?

It is obvious that desperation can be used as the excuse to produce desperate moves. It also, however, speaks for itself to the quality, or lack thereof, in the character of those opportunist using elections for the spreading of hate and contempt based upon fabrications.

They say that negative adds work, or have a history of working by blurring truth and misinformation. When one does not have reality or truth on ones side, darkness must be called to dim the light of fact. That is the attempt to poison the Commons for the benefit of privileged elites, or those who aim to become them.

This election, with its obvious importance, may have a more focused voter able to tell who is running on reality, and who is running on empty.

Countdown Wednesday: Same Sleaze, Different Day

Posted: Wednesday, October 08, 2008 8:59 PM by Countdown
Filed Under: <!– Countdown –>

Disconnect the Dots: On the day that Senator McCain’s campaign pretended to be suspended… it ran 1,300 ads. On the day that Senator McCain’s campaign pretended it would no longer focus on William Ayers — Today — it released a statement about Mr Ayers… and the Senator himself — as well as his running mate both “responding with gusto” to a question about Mister Ayers… in a joint interview with Fox News. Our fifth story on the Countdown: The Republican nominee, an apparent prisoner — the word is chosen deliberately — of his own mixed messages.

On Board with McCain: Why do William Ayres and the Reverend Jeremiah Wright matter? The answer, we are told, has to do with Barrock Obama’s judgment and character… Judgment in choosing to associate with them… Judgment in choosing to serve on a board with Ayres…Character in choosing not to walk out on Wright’s rhetoric. In our fourth story, what we learn applying this litmus test to John McCain. We told you last night about the U-S Council for World Freedom, on whose board McCain sat for years. But while Ayres was a rehabilitated terrorist when Obama served on a board with him, what about McCain’s fellow board members in the ’80s?

ODDBALL: Putin Judo, Monkey Waiters, Neck Tattoo Bandit

Poison Pill: John McCain is right. If elected he will get you a five-thousand dollar health care tax credit. He didn’t mention, if you don’t have a family, the credit will only be 2500. He also didn’t mention that you’ll probably have to give most of it back, to pay for the new taxes he’ll sock you with, if you get health benefits at work, which he’ll consider income. He also didn’t mention that his plan is so top-heavy, scholars at four major universities have concluded that this conversation will be academic for as many as 20 Million Americans — because a McCain Presidency would eliminate their health care. Our third story on the Countdown: John McCain may be hazardous to your health… as revealed in last night’s debate.

Worsties…see below.


WORST PERSON IN THE WORLD: Kathryn Jean Lopez, former Maryland police superintendent Thomas Hutchins and Bobby May, McCain Campaign chair in Buchanan County, Virginia.

Seanabler: When a hack bases an entire show around a transparent quack… it may seem cartoonish, but it must be taken seriously… Particularly by the communications director of that show’s target — Senator Barack Obama. And in our number one story on the Countdown, the Obama campaign’s Robert Gibbs delivered unto Sean Hannity a two-fer. Deflating the argument about Obama’s so-called associations… and skewering Hannity’s supposed investigation… all at once.

Arnie Weber, Associate of Ayers, Donated Tainted Campaign Money to McCain/Palin

Wed Oct 08, 2008 at 10:17:52 AM PDT

CAMPAIGN CONTRIBUTIONS FROM “TERRORIST” ASSOCIATE?

Arnold R. “Arnie” Weber is a Chicago Annenberg Board member. He was an Assistant Secretary of Labor and Associate Director of the Office of Management and Budget under President Nixon. Arnie Weber, former president of the Commercial Club of Chicago’s Civic Committee, is a longtime Republican donor. It is a well known fact that, for many years, Arnie Weber was a board member of the **Chicago Annnenberg Challenge**. THIS IS THE SAME ORGANIZATION THAT WAS FOUNDED BY “KNOWN TERRORIST” BILL AYERS!

CAMPAIGN CONTRIBUTIONS FROM “TERRORIST” ASSOCIATE?

Arnold R. “Arnie” Weber is a Chicago Annenberg Board member. He was an Assistant Secretary of Labor and Associate Director of the Office of Management and Budget under President Nixon. Arnie Weber, former president of the Commercial Club of Chicago’s Civic Committee, is a longtime Republican donor. It is a well known fact that, for many years, Arnie Weber was a board member of the **Chicago Annnenberg Challenge**. THIS IS THE SAME ORGANIZATION THAT WAS FOUNDED BY “KNOWN TERRORIST” BILL AYERS!

Sarah Palin has been excercising her right to “guilt by association”. I am sure Gov Palin realizes that this is a “two way street”. The simple fact is that Senator John McCain has accepted tainted campaign contributions from Arnie Weber, an unrepentant associate of Bill Ayers.

Arnie Weber has given the maximum amount allowed by law, $1,500, to the McCain Campaign in 2008. Campaign statements reveal that in 2008, Arnie Weber made two separate donations of $1,000 and $500 to McCain’s presidential campaign. I hereby demand that Senator McCain denounce this man and reject these donations of “blood money”. John McCain needs to either return this money or give it to a charity. True Christians know that removing the log from ones own eye is the first step before criticizing someone else (Matt 7:5)

After additional research, I was SHOCKED to discover there is still more damning “evidence” of previously unreported “associations”!

Here are further connections to the Ayers “family”, such as: Arnie Weber was actually HIRED by Bill Ayers’ father, Thomas Ayers, Chairman of Northwestern University’s Board of Trustees. The “senior Ayers” also ran Commonwealth Edison. Some say that Thomas Ayers arranged to have Northwestern hire Bill Ayers’ wife, BERNADINE DOHRN, another member of the Weathermen (40 something years ago). A residence hall at Northwestern University is even NAMED AFTER “TERRORIST” Bill Ayers’ father, Thomas Ayers! (Thanks to “NU FAN” for these details)

THE “LIBERAL MEDIA” ISN’T EVEN INVESTIGATING WHY JOHN MCCAIN HAS ACCEPTED THESE TAINTED CAMPAIGN CONTRIBUTIONS FROM THIS “TERRORIST” ASSOCIATE. ARNIE WEBER DOESN’T DENY HE ASSOCIATED WITH A KNOWN TERRORIST.

The reason Arnold R. Weber doesn’t deny this is because he is, in fact, a respectable businessman and he hasn’t been asked about his relationship to Bill Ayers, a man described by Republicans and Democrats alike as “a distinguished professor” at the University of Chicago. That is why no one is actually upset with Mr. Weber.

It turns out that these types of so-called “facts” are BASELESS ATTACKS WITH NO MERIT. They are meant to distract uninformed voters. We don’t hear about these very often because most politician want to run CLEAN campaigns and most people want to talk about REAL issues affecting REAL lives. Most voters don’t want to play “6 degrees of Kevin Bacon” and look for random associations.

Here’s an example: you can trace Obama’s family tree to BOTH George W. Bush (10th cousins once removed) and Dick Cheney (eighth cousins). That’s right! THEY ARE RELATED! This is yet another useless fact, suitable for games of “Trivial Pursuit”, but NOT worthy of any time in this election cycle. GUILT BY ASSOCIATION IS AN ATTACK ON VOTERS AND ON THE ELECTION PROCESS.

Some associations, however, ARE worth learning more about. When the CEO for the McCain Presidential Campaign actively lobbyied on behalf of FANNIE MAE and FREDDIE MAC, we have a right to know just what’s going on here. RICK DAVIS IS WORTH TALKING ABOUT. Check out this link to the Wiki article on Mr. Davis.

http://en.wikipedia.org/…

Here is a guy that made MILLIONS as a Washington lobbyist. This guy is a caricature of the very thing that John McCain claims over and over again that he “hates”. EARMARKS ANYONE? Rick Davis PRACTICALLY INVENTED EARMARKS. He launched his lobbying career straight from a Reagan White House job! Now he is running the McCain Campaign. How can we believe John McCain is against wasteful government spending after learning about his campaign manager?

new dollar

If you know of limitations, you know of balance.

So what?

We require context to know what balance will require.

With the the US economy becoming a globalised corporate run show, gas price increases meant that more money went to who owned the gas. Since we do not all receive cost of living increases consummate with expenses, we must cut back or get more income. Those with stocks in oil companies receive the shift in dollars. Those without either do more or do with less. The effect of this shift is to put the weight upon the “mass” of consumers. This is done whether the shift is caused by “nature” or human made decisions in corporations and markets to milk the Commons for all it is worth.

Now put this shift in balance to other sectors of the economy, and you have a gross negative pull. Problematic areas in hiding now come bounding out of the closet to seem as the new cause. Some can even blame these weaknesses falling to the floor, instead of the biggest weakness of all–opportunism itself. Many of the wealthiest few seem to believe they can take what they wish from the Commons, and put back nothing. Not even respect.

Socialism for corporations, requires those beyond direct control of corporate balance sheets, to pay for the corporations “ownerships” way. Societies pay all the increase in corporate benefits, and continue to pay for their own as well. Likely in some respects, to lose benefits of a once growing income for the average citizen. With effectively less money to go around, other things must come down or atrophy.

Those on fixed incomes are becoming more impoverished. China is currently funding much of our recent prosperity. That aspect of the world Commons, will also deliver bills to be paid by the USA, others and our environments.–We cannot prosper indefinitely from mortgaging the future to make now seem stable. The so called free market and what the market will bare does not give concern or accountability’s to the Commons by those exploiting it.

This philosophical perversion, believes the earth itself is an infinite sort of abstraction. Opportunist refuse, generally, to even think they owe anything back for their use of the Commons. They think they just take, and win for getting. Their return is conceived as a give back of whatever their product or service was. Then, the law or whatever lets them keep all they can keep, period.

This is an alienation from the Commons delusion. These essentially disturbed folks then go on to demean and condemn those who have a more whole-istic view. A view which is as obvious to many as gravity itself. We have people, then, who feel they can ostracise themselves from responsibility to the Commons of Life. To oppose their view, is then condemned as some sort of fault or failure of other individuals character or initiative, or an alien lack of support for societies paradigm.

That the opportunistic view insist that only its way is the right way, and altering views are wrong or unwelcome in society, is privileges opportunism applying its cognitive dissonant associations to deny the cancerous societal and environments impacts of rampant self centered opportunism. These rationalizations often buttressed by a list of cult like Thought-terminating clichés; notions that shame or otherwise divert consideration of vital societal and earth threatening conditions. It is stunning to consider that humankind is being effectively prevented from addressing many critical issues for the benefit of the delusional few.

This is simple common sense, yet come election times, ideologies come along to blame the real abuse cause, perhaps to some degree, but then other motivational factors come into consideration. For controlling corporate power interest and those they have “hired”; these we expect to put out false fronts of cause to seduce followers in the corporate ideologies paradigm as it relates to tagged mindsets in target audiences. We are getting deeper into the fool-o-sphere.

For some companies will feel the pinch of not being in on the windfall profit or commodities reasons for the jump in cost of its product. Some companies will not be in the position to be a societal imperative, such as transportation and power are. Some, such as car companies, will see their products suffer from lack of turnover or the public abilities to pay for new product. So even the speculative profiteering company and its investors, will eventually feel some pull downward from their greed.

Personally, I would suggest that one never actually gets away with greed or deception, no matter that many can think that they have, or that those do. I believe spiritual consequence instantly accompanies behavior that disregards the Whole of the Commons. One may lie, for instance, and “get away” with something hidden, but their own soul then becomes more estranged from Creations Core (hidden). This happens regardless of fancy homes and cars. Some times we can see right through surface appearance to deeper truths.

In case I have not noticed it, greed and deception, no matter how seductive or opportunistically profitable, will degenerate the heart and soul of the Commons—the relationships throughout our worlds as we experience them. In worse case scenarios, greed and excess can bring the whole world into literal depression. Then, we generally share in the self destructive behaviors that the powerful spread out from their influence. In democracies, we can even say that we “own” even societies worst abuses of the individual and Commons.

Many humans can detect this degeneration of the soul endemic to greed and opportunism, just by viewing the characteristics of fellow humans so engaged. From past hard times, when movie making was already around, not just stories of these folks were portrayed, but the very behavioral styles that go along with them. This is shaky ground to look from, since appearance does not tell all there is necessarily to ones character. And just as in the movies, humans act out roles felt related to the activities they engage in.

It is in fact at times a perceptual bias; where assumptions, lets say of dress or other appearance, are assumed to indicate a lack of quality of character, simple because a consensus prejudice has been inculcated into society that says, let’s say, that one with a beard is not trusted, for they seem to be hiding something. Just being different than the norm can raise conformist suspicions, perhaps, while it is the conformity itself that may well be most suspicious. This election we have ones vegetable food choices being considered a sign of contempt.

WHERE IS THE FOOL TEST?

We are always being tested in these regards. It is this years election cycle that will demonstrate how easily fooled many of us are. Do we know what the greater context is? Or will some pandering to a certain specific presumed negative seem to swing our important decision? Do I know what power interest are in command of most information avenues? Do I “get” what the historical difference in the two current political parties really is? Or can some fear based pandering to certain specifics or negatives be made to seem so large that they swing my concept of the Common Good?

With the balance and harmony of society becoming increasingly under greater stress; the need for a new economic and political paradigm would seem obvious as the sky itself, yet is seemingly kept predominately off the pubic radar screens.

Wont get fooled again! No. I will never go that far. But we all are being fooled much more than we either know or admit to. Our complicity’s in our own possible cognitive dissonant assuaging rationalizations, does put the ownership of the fate of the Commons where it belongs. Right in our choices.

To be fooled or not to be fooled may well be the actual choice. While deciding what otherwise benefits us from some subjective or opportunistic angle will likely continue the losing streak America seems committed to.
