Left, Right & Center

So, President Obama finally announced his long-awaited decision to increase the number of U.S. troops in Afghanistan. Will it be his undoing? At least on this week’s “Left, Right & Center,” opinions on left and right converge, although for different reasons. And how about the latest unemployment figures—what, only 11,000 jobs lost? We’re doing less-worse than ever, but are we doing better? And is there any reason to take Tiger Woods to task for his alleged infidelities?  —KA

No, there is NO reason to take Tiger Woods to task, this is a trivial waste of time,

a MSM approach to hiding the real truths from the public, truths that desperately need telling.

All you journalist say, “The public does not care, the public is uninformed, etc.  Do all of you have absolutely no clue why this appears so. 

Let me explain:  America is supposed to be a representative democracy (or something like that).  Well it isn’t.  It is a representative oligarchy. Washington represents big business, the financial markets, free markets, etc., etc., ad
nauseam.  The public is not stupid or disinterested.  It UNDERSTANDS that it is not really being represented by Washington so why give any input.  Nobody in Washington will listen or respond to it. 

The very wealthy control the country.  Have any of you ever heard the old saying"wealth is power”.  The CEO’s of the financial markets, etc. view the government with contempt.  Doesn’t the media know this?  This reality could
actually be called an axiom, as ‘‘the sun rises in the East.” 

Reading the comments of Journalist, opinion writers, etc. demonstrate they are also beholden to the oligarchy.  Washington (our government) is also beholden as I intimated above.
Have any of you ever heard another old saying, “the very wealthy are just like a jet fighter pilot.  For the jet pilot there is no such thing as too much power.  To the very wealthy there is no such thing as too much money—they never stop and
say “I have enough money.”  Remember, wealth is power.  Do I need to repeat that.
None of you in the “mainstream media” really have anything to say of any importance.  Why don’t you just fold your cards get up and go away.
With greatest sincerity,  David E. Bone, MD
