This morning the sunshine was intense as I walked down from the loft and connected my solar panels to the batteries. I smiled as I thought to myself it would be another great day for charging the batteries. With the added sunlight lately I have been able to cut down by 20% the amount of time I need to run my generator…thus saving money for the gasoline. It was the start of another good day.
As I sat looking out the window at the squirrels and waiting for the water to boil I contemplated that thanks to one Senator in Washington I now understood my place in the world as a whole. Lately and also partially because of the research I do for this blog I felt lost not knowing any purpose in life. This came about as I uncovered more and more information….information that never makes it into the news, I became more and more disoriented as to what I am supposed to do or feel.
I could be just like the many millions of so called ‘low information’ people, who accept whatever news is presented to them as truth without ever looking into the story itself. For years I have put these people down because they keep electing people for office that say one thing but once in office do the opposite. I never truly understood the myriad of factors that made them too busy to research the candidates or bogus news stories. When you rely on a corrupt and slanted media and that is you only source of information then you are indeed being used.
A prime example was the line the President used for months, “if you are happy with your health care plan/doctor you can keep him/it”. We now know this was a complete lie. The President knew it, the media knew it but still they treated it on every newscast as truth just to keep ‘we the people’ from demanding that obama-care never got passed. Well lately another story has come to light…remember the ‘death panels’ spoken about before the passage of obama-care. Well it was recently announced by the governing board of cardiologists that they are setting new guidelines for who is eligible to receive what drugs and procedures based not on need but the new (affordable health care guidelines) of age and your worth as a human being to society. Did any of you read or hear about this in the main stream media?
Oh and back to my contentment at finding myself….
“an American who is suspicious of centralized federal authority,
and reverent of individual liberty as a right-wing terrorist.”
now if you will excuse me because my coffee is ready and I have to go and clean my gun’s.
