It has become so apparent to me and undoubtedly clear during the last 6-8 years we in the United States have not been kept as informed by those running things here as we thought we were..
That realization has been a long time coming, and the ‘powers that be’ seem to (as good as) own the same media we count on to keep us aware of what is going on in our own country as well as in the rest of the world.
Our most treasured right (IMO): ‘Freedom of speech’ is not so free any more. It’s been replaced with being ‘politically correct’. And being ‘politically correct’ of course is subjective, depending on which side you think you’re on.
Tolerance has often been replaced with hate, because (IMO) we’re being manipulated by the media who is being manipulated (owned) by big money…. and big money owns many of the politicians.
So here we are, trying to make sense of the combination of truth and lies and secrets.
I’ve always been careful not to make a final decision about things, until I have all the facts in front of me. Well, I don’t think that’s possible any more (except on a personal/family level). We just have to remember that they keep changing the rules on us, and react accordingly.
I’m so grateful to have been born here and to have lived my life in this country… I love it here. But I find it absolutely necessary to block out most of the propaganda that is being thrown at us daily by the media under guise of truth.
I fear that investigative reporting is a lost art which I imagine is because there is no market for it.
Everyone has an agenda. We just don’t know what it is. Because what I’m seeing sure doesn’t make any sense.
