See this is all about perception... I read through the entire thread and this is all about how people see it. A quick question though. Who is seeing it. I mean on something other than ABC, CBS, or NBC. Something other than the BBC broadcast... whose been watching something other than CNN.

My point is about the way we receive our information, about the air waves. The media and it's attempt to perpetuate the propaganda by only showing us parts of the story or some of the story. The people of America and of the world for that matter only know about half what is going on. That's most likely high.

You have to question the things you see in this day and age... Something in my eyes is not a fact until I can verify it and not just because some sly mouthed news reporter breaks the story.

Look at our information and look at how many first reports turn out to be wrong. It's filtered and processed and watered down for our consumption.

Ok Ringo -- have a break  
this is a dangerous medium for sarcasm... it helps to be very clear that's what you're doing -- it's even hard to be serious -- some people may think you're joking.  

that's why emoticons have evolved into such an art form...

The most important thing to consider about perspective is the position one is viewing from -- moreso than what is being viewed.

Paradigms, prejudices, ideologies, and Maslow all have a tremendous impact compared to that of the actual medium.

Ahhh you have the right way of thinking Local Rebel... very true because who writes all the history books out there... The winners do... ot's always the conquerer that tells the story and so rearly is the other side heard...
