How worthless is the MSM?

That title may be a non sequitur but I think it makes the point clear. Worthless is what they are, there are no values of worthless other than being without worth. “What am I talking about?” you may well be asking yourself. OK, read this and see if you understand:,2933,433314,00.html

The mainstream media has no worth as a news agency when it is simply acting as the propaganda arm of the Obama/Biden campaign. There used to be a time when the media would be all over these gaffs by Biden and also would have known that Gov. Palin was right in her answers to her questions, used as examples. Biden’s ignorance of basic Constitutional tenants would have been all over the networks and newspapers, not just a lone story on the one news agency that makes an attempt at integrity.

We are living in very dangerous times and the MSM is exacerbating the danger. How dangerous? Watch the stock market the day after the election… McCain’s victory will start its recovery; Obama’s victory will precipitate the long awaited, final crash that will excuse the switch to socialism and the destruction of America’s financial leadership role in the world. (Why do you think so many people are selling off their portfolios now, before the market completely makes them worthless, if not in preparation for an Obama ‘victory’? I put that in quotes because a victory for Obama is a severe defeat for America. It will certainly mark the end of the country as we grew up knowing it. The US of A will more closely resemble a South American country than anything else; it’s heading there as it is but Obama will usher in the final transition. He’s already set to Nationalize all your pension funds… have you heard that? Oh yes he is.

Biden mentioned that corporate big-wig pensions will be the first to go; but right now, in Washington, there is a hearing on a method of completely Nationalizing 401k’s and rolling them into the Social security System. Oh, for sure they’ll sweeten the deal and make some people think it’s a good idea, giving you the August (2008) value of your 401k; but it will just be a little value added to your SS benefits and only 50% of it will be transferable to your heirs. (A way to apply the death tax to your pension.) Right now you have, at least the illusion that your money is yours, that is, the part of what you make that the government allows you to keep; but before much longer, if the democrats put their plans into action, you won’t even have that illusion. Are you so enamored with the Social Security Administration that you can’t wait to retire on what they will provide you with?

If all the money that was put into your SS account by just you over the course of your life was in a 401k, even with the resent market losses, you would have quite a nice nest-egg that would pay you better than a living wage throughout your retirement years; but there is actually twice that amount in your account, isn’t there, what with your employers’ contribution; yet your SS benefits will hardly be enough to live comfortably on, will it? I know because I get just about the maximum payout from SS along with about half that by way of a VA pension and I’m just getting by in today’s economy. Without that VA pension I’d be living in a slum tenement on tuna fish. The democrats in congress want them to handle all your retirement. You aren’t capable of taking care of yourself, in their elitist opinion.

What do you think he means when Obama said that industry should start from the bottom up? Think about that… “from the bottom up.” Did your company, the one you work for or own now, or any one in the past start out by hiring a bunch of people then sit around and decide what you were going to do to make money? …or did it start with an idea, risked money on it, worked until help was needed, and then hired people to handle the work that the owner couldn’t do by themselves? The latter is a ‘top down’ enterprise – that’s how all companies started. Obama thinks it should be the other way around. How do you think that will work? Will it work? Can it work?

Ten days to find out.


There is a virtuous fear which is the effect of faith, and a vicious fear which is the product of doubt and distrust. The former leads to hope as relying on God, in whom we believe; The latter inclines to despair, as not relying on God, in whom we do not believe.Persons of the one character fear to lose God; those of the other character fear to find Him.--Pascal

“Democracies are most commonly corrupted by the insolence of demagogues.” —Aristotle

“Understanding is the reward of faith. Therefore seek not to understand that you may believe, but believe that you may understand.” —Augustine of Hippo

“The object of life is not to be on the side of the majority but to escape finding oneself in the ranks of the insane.” – Marcus Aurelius
