A “Feeding” Tube is a Media Device

It’s political regurgitation season once again and once again the people are fully displaying their inability to think, evoke history or differentiate truth. But it’s not solely their fault.

For those of us fortunate enough to be living in Florida, we have all become subjected to the intrusion of filthy and disgusting mass robotic telephone messages that seldom allow anyone to have a moment of peace. It’s worse than living with several 2 and 3-year-old children who have yet to grasp mentally those benign traits necessary for coexistence.

Because our dishonest and lying lawmakers exempted themselves from “do not call” lists, the primary season has them out in full battle gear intruding into every aspect of our lives. It’s worse than SPAM.

What is the reason for this? It’s because the average voter fits a certain profile; a portrait of a non thinker that requires a feeding tube in order to know what is required of them and what decisions to make. The creation of this caricature began in our infancy, molding us into what we have become. As such, those so-called masters of the campaign strategies, believe they know what each candidate should say and do to get you to vote for them, regardless of truth.

Most voters require a feeding tube in order to get their political nutrition. I laughed this morning as I was preparing information to write this article. I decided to Google “feeding tube”. Wikipedia’s first sentences reads: “A feeding tube is a medical device used to provide nutrition to patients who cannot obtain nutrition by swallowing.” Bingo! I changed a couple of words and came up with this: “A feeding tube is a media device used to provide political nutrition to voters who cannot obtain nutrition by thinking.”

As of this writing, there are four GOP candidates remaining in the race. Mitt Romney will be 65 in March. Newt Gingrich will be 69 in June. Ron Paul will be 77 in August and Rick Santorum will be 54 in May. Anyone who has mental capacity to think and recall, knows all about Mitt Romney. He was governor of Massachusetts. The same can be said of Gingrich, who spent years in the United State Congress and was Speaker of the House. Ron Paul has been around in Congress longer than the dust in some of the cracks and Rick Santorum was a senator from Pennsylvania. All of this and people require a televised debate, where biased and misleading questions are asked to candidates, the most who have been instructed how to answer them in order to please the most number of voters. And if having all this valuable information available, there are voters who are undecided. Really?

Because we have been programmed to know where our political nutrition must come from, voters sit down and plug in their feeding tubes to all sources of media. But like with eating food or even taking it by feeding tube, our stomachs must retain the ability to digest and process this food to get the nutrients from it. Being tube fed by the media, still requires the act of digestion. In other words, it is required of the voter, even if you can no longer swallow, to digest the information discarding the waste and using the nutrients.

Media is very powerful. It decides many things in this country and around the world. We are programmed to believe that what comes from media is truth. It is not. There are facts mixed with propaganda – nutrition mixed with waste. You can digest it or regurgitate it.

It is time for voters to once again learn to chew and swallow, get rid of the media feeding tube and engage a thinking-for-yourself kind of brain. Or, you can let the feeding tube tell you how to vote, what to think and how to act.

Counting The Days Until Spring

It’s really not been much of a winter across most of the United States, except Alaska. Even still, with the days inching along getting a bit longer each day and the sun edging its way higher into the sky, anything of bright colors spurs us on for the passage into spring. But not everyone is subjected to winter in the classic sense.

Florida has been a warm winter as well, but added warmth during the winter in Florida doesn’t mean less snow it means more days at the beach and more time spent in shorts, T-shirts and flip-flops. “Livin’ on sponge cake. Watchin’ the sun bake. All of those tourists covered in oil.”

As the sun came up this morning over the eastern horizon, I took note of one of the pots of flowers scattered around the yard. What caught my eye was one pot of brilliant red petunias, dancing in a light southeast breeze.

I grabbed my little PHD (push here dummy) camera, grabbed a couple shots and here’s one of them.

To the left is Bird Creek Pass; to the right is Indian Creek Pass. Ship Creek is in view and flows this way (west) towards Anchorage and goes to the port, up town. Bird and Indian creeks are fishable also from Turnagain Arm south five and tens miles.

Uh Oh! Scientists Say No Need to Panic About Untenable Claims of Destructive Global Warming

No Need to Panic About Global Warming
There’s no compelling scientific argument for drastic action to ‘decarbonize’ the world’s economy.

Editor’s Note: The following has been signed by the 16 scientists listed at the end of the article:

A candidate for public office in any contemporary democracy may have to consider what, if anything, to do about “global warming.” Candidates should understand that the oft-repeated claim that nearly all scientists demand that something dramatic be done to stop global warming is not true. In fact, a large and growing number of distinguished scientists and engineers do not agree that drastic actions on global warming are needed.<<<Read the Rest>>>
