In the selling of Wil Cardon, here in Arizona, we see a very aggressive TV campaign that exemplifies the concentration found in today’s politics. Everyday on all channels there are numerous ads presenting Wil Cardon, the Republican candidate for US Senator, with the number and obvious costs of the ads simply being overwhelming. Of course they always say all of the key things about jobs, the economy, securing the border and so on, without any regard for his lack of qualifications, but then all candidates always say the right things and just come back later with their excuses as the people are eventually disappointed.
Some clues to what the reality is are very apparent in the substantial money being spent to sell Mr. Cardon and in everything presented simply being consistent with “the money’s” interests. There isn’t any doubt that Wil Cardon is another owned and controlled “puppet” ready to serve his masters who “pull the strings”, as they together strive to con the people and manipulate public opinion, once more just insultingly taking the people for granted and assuming the people can simply be used and abused as “pawns”. Their efforts are very aggressive as Mr. Cardon quickly builds up his debt to “the money” and, as we have clearly seen, they will collect their due. Here in Arizona they fully intend to replace the exiting “puppet” Senator Jon Kyl with a new “puppet” in Mr. Cardon. Undoubtedly this is happening across the whole country.
The point and problem being identified here is that there is no real honest and responsible consideration of the people, only cocky confidence, fortified by previous exploitive successes, in being able to con and use the voters to gain their ends - which is to keep pushing this country into being a two-class society with “the few” (1%) competing in having it all while the majority (99%) continually loses more. Consider their tell-tale position on health care reform with Cardon promising to concentrate on repealing “Obamacare”; instead of their ever conscientiously and responsibly working to fine tune it, as they just ignore it is really needed, that repealing it will only satisfy Special Interests and that it will again be difficult to implement and instead be easy to block. They appeal to people’s emotions, excite them and then deceive them and just take advantage, all while pushing their own interests forward. To ever get “the money” out of politics, these are the “puppets” that have to be firmly rejected.
Another red herring issue like the "war on Christmas/religion/constitution/insert your paranoia here. Why don't more conservatives want to teach? And where do all these liberal indoctrinated students go after college? They sure don't live here.
OWS is an example of our continued indoctrination by liberal/progressive/socialist professors. More and more our schools of higher education produce takers and not makers.
Now where is Mike McCullean when you need him? Political correctness, multi-culturism, diversity, the new code words for statism/marxism. Liberalism is a mental disorder.
Rational Human----couldn't have said it better myself----kudos to you!
Terence Ball: “If you come into my classroom as a conservative, I want you to leave as a more thoughtful and reflective conservative, not a socialist or liberal,” he said.
If you walk into a classroom as anything, you might get an 'A' but you're still doing it wrong.
willie wrote: "Universities would be happy to have Republican professors -- but the problem is -- they can't find enough Republicans that are smart enough to be professors." Ha Ha. That's so typically liberal: if you can't beat em with facts and rational thought, go for the ad hominum attack. No, there's another reason that conservatives don't teach: Those who can do, those who can't, teach. The Peter Principle is alive and well in our colleges. Read Prof Scam.
A Dummycrat "Socialist-Liberal" is a code word for "Communist-Dictatorship" in today's university environment, while a "Conservative" is a political code word for "Neocon_Dictatorship" of elitists like George W. Bushwhacker & his GOP run by VP Dick Cheney et. al. There's no difference in the politics of both Dummycrat "Social_Liberal_Communists" vis_a_vis GOP "Neocon_Dictatorship_Elitiests"...both have no respect for the terms & conditions of the U.S. Constitution & Bill of Rights & are "Tax_&_$pend" lap-dogs of the Wall $t. Bankster$. After all, $$$ talks, Democratic Principles "walk$"...LOL!!!
The new liberal/socialist meme is to turn everything around. Now they call republicans communists and just accuse conservatism of their own evils to confuse the ignorant, but useful, masses.
You're either a liar Willie or highly misinformed as to the mainstream media slant. Our higher education has been infiltrated by socialists and that is why our youth are so confused. How would you like to live in an affluent culture created by capitalism and be told that capitalism is evil? To be told that everything your parents did to get you to this educational institution is evil and you must support wealth distribution or be a part of the great evil empire. Liberalism is a mental disease that needs to be treated before it totally destroys our country.
No all the news media are owned by only 6 mega corporations and they constantly preach the Republican line. Some soft pedal it more than others. They may not be right wing enough to suit some -- but they are NOT liberal.
Universities would be happy to have Republican professors -- but the problem is -- they can't find enough Republicans that are smart enough to be professors.
I would have been more receptive if you had added, "And if you come into my classroom as a liberal, I want to you to leave a a more thoughtful and reflective liberal." Too often liberals who teach at the universities don't think. They don't understand real-world economics.
Of course, newspaper, tv, and radio people are highly liberal slanted, too.
