Don't Buy It

Gentleman, please! It may seem minor, but it just goes to show how interlinked commerical interests are intwined with, supposedly independent, journalism these days. Consider this additional proof that the massmedia is either corrupted or simply moronic. Examine this page closely, notice the fine detail and attention paid to propaganda. Ask yourself these simple questions: How could they know who deleted what off their computers? Are they polling people? Do you think, with the RIAA suing people left and right, anyone would tell the truth? How many people would really just delete all the files they spent so much time collecting over the many years? Please! This is a simple propaganda technique, Guilt by Association, trying to convince others to do the same.

Pass the Better, Please

Sir, I introduce to you an distinguished fellow, though radical in some regards, he should no less be considered for the important insights he grants us.

"The good is often enemy to the best." --Norman D. Livergood, Completing the American Revolution.
Overstated, but nonetheless an interesting antiestablishment perspective with many kernels of truth.

Third World Nation

Gentleman, I direct your attention toward the following.

Congress looks for ways to slow offshore hiring while America spirals downward.

"Thousands and thousands and thousands of white-collar jobs are going overseas, chasing the cheap dollar in India, China, Malaysia and the Philippines", Manzullo said. "That's the reason for this hearing, because of the incontrovertible evidence that the United States is on the verge of adopting the economies of Third World nations."

Does this sound serious enough for you, sirs? Of course nay sayers like to tout weak statistics on the strength of the U.S. job market, but they fail the larger picture of wage depreciation. From a global perspective, perhaps we should not be too upset. At least these other countries are advancing economically, which will strengthen our international alliances. Agree? And not to worry, all our I.T. workers can just become bankers (sic).

So do you imagine they found any of those "ways"? Myself, I would not place a bet on it.
