Bravo media. Well played .... again. I do marvel at how well you do at detracting us voters from real issues like the economy, gas prices and a coming presidential election. And you're also not too shabby at bringing out the murkey sides of character often dormant in us all, whether we lean left or lean right. Bloggers have been blogging all about it! Nice.
Some years ago when I was working at a corporate agency, I was passed over for a position I worked hard for. My boss had resigned mid-way through a multi-level project we'd worked on a few years and I thought I was a shoe-in for the job. The company left her position vacant for several months while I carried the ball, keeping outside partners reassured and engaged.
Long story short, they hired a new boss whom I helped train to run the project. Bleh. Many others have traveled this road before and after me. But at the time, I wasn't thinking about that. I was thinking glass ceiling! Nepotism! Unfair! Oh how I tried to cloud the real issue, which was I didn't have enough experience or credentials for the job.
I tried smoking mirrors, look HERE, don't look THERE. Look at THIS, don't look at THAT. The MSM are lackies for Obama.
Don't look at Obama's earlier associations with anti-American militants, or his affinity for terrorists, or his disdain for our military. Don't look at our country's steadily increasing deficit under Obama's leadership or his divisive antics with voters or his disregard for our Constitution.
As for the bleeding hearts fanning the flames on how racist America still is and how important it is to shine the light on any suspicious, albeit remote, race-related shooting, I'm reminded of a scene from The Godfather. The hero of the story, the godfather, a known murderer but amiable bully, is approached by a "little guy" from the neighborhood wanting a favor. The godfather grants the favor but reminds our "little guy" one day, you must remember that I did you this "service" and I will expect my kindness to be returned.
Get it? Your motives are rightly suspect. Do me a favor, don't do me any favors. I have a brain, thank you. And if you're the hand that feeds me, I'm prepared to chomp right up to your shoulders.
It's time the "little guy" start using his own noggin and stop letting others yank his chain. Nothing is free in this world. If you're still waiting on your life to improve because big brother promised he has only your interest, not his own in mind, I've got a bridge with you name on it for a great price! If you're bent on forcing others to see you in a way in which you don't even see your ownself, I can throw in some dirt for free!
While you're busy staring at the smoking mirrors, life is passing you by. Snap out of it! Stop waiting to die and make a contribution already. You can start by hopping off the media bandwagon. Take the reigns on your own life and help us take our country back!
