When Keeping us Safe becomes a Sick Twisted Neurotic ObsessionSubmitted by Michaelwiseguy on Sun, 07/07/2013 - 13:35
It is obvious to the critical thinker among us, there is a lot of money to be grafted from this operation, but from whom to who?
If keeping us safe meant tens of thousands of lives would be saved, and national security meant the nation may fall to a superior super power, I might be inclined to go along with the rhetoric. But when bath tub accidents have a tendency to kill many more Americans than all the so called terrorists in history, and we're spending literally trillions of dollars to save those few lives from being killed by terrorists, the neuritic obsession must be questioned.
The mainstream media's constant harping on the subject is a critical factor in making people believe terror is a bigger threat to you than your own bath tub. Of course people who own the big 5 news networks also own most of the manufacturers of military hardware and software. There's a vested interest here. Why the obsession? Money. Your taxpayer money. Mainstream media news reporters are nothing more than stenographers for the Federal Government and lobbyists for the military industrial complex.
But now it has gone way beyond the confines of the Patriot Act. Way beyond the prying eyes of the public who think they know what is being done in their name. Way beyond the the Twilight Zone and 1984. Way beyond any semblance of rational thinking.
I fear it will take a lot more Edward Snowden's to fix what is broken.
The USA has entered the Age of Idiocracy. "Keeping us Safe" is the movie version of "Electrolytes", the main ingredient in Brando(see the movie Idocracy).
