Please pay attention when watching televison

So I am watching a few minutes of CBS Morning Show just now. Top story, the economy. The have the Chair of the FDIC in studio. When the anchor speaks her voice is synched to her lips. Every time the FDIC person talks, her audio is just a tiny bit behind her mouth. Well, it’s delay in their transmission right? No, notice I said in the studio. They even had a shot of them both at the same time. Anchor on target, reply to her still in the same shot, FDIC audio is delayed. It was completely obvious. My wife came in and I didn’t say anything to her and told her to pay attention. She said ‘the audio is off’ and then she noticed that it was just for the person they were interviewing. Guess the FDIC woman couldn’t be trusted to stick to the talking points or she isn’t high enough on the totem pole to know what’s really going on. Just insane.

Next story is about an 11 year old that shot and killed (allegedly but “come on you know he did it” tone) his father’s girlfriend (who incidentally looks just a few years older than the 11 year old but nothing is being said about that being creepy or anything.) He is supposed to have shot her with a junior model shotgun he received from his father at Christmas. The story is all about the victims totally insane screaming mother (I cannot fathom the depths of pain from losing a’s unthinkable, but this lady comes off like a freight train of trailer trash crazy) and of course the evil gun shop that sells ‘guns for children!’ Exactly the thing you would expect now that the Dems are running the show again. (Yes, I know neither side runs things, it’s the all the same team but superficially for the national dialogue the media produces these narratives based on current favor) It is a total we gotta outlaw guns piece through and through. Totally emotional and totally lacking asking the real questions. This 11 year old, who had threatened the life of this girlfriend, received a gun for Christmas. Why isn’t the question ‘Why the hell would you buy someone who is making death threats a gun for Christmas?!?!’ What kind of retard does that? I guess maybe the same retard that has an 11 year old son and is banging a 17 year old girl. Perhaps the father was tired of the girl and knew this was a way to get rid of her and it would be ok since the son was so young, he wouldn’t get in trouble? It’s obvious the people involved don’t have too many brain cells to run together so this does sound plausible.

Yes, some folks really aren’t smart enough to be trusted with firearms, BUT we cannot bar everyone from having them due to the lowest common denominator. If that were the case, we should ban cars, and booze, and cigarettes, and toasters and gasoline and fireworks and so on. We cannot make America retard proof. In fact, if anything, guns might help weed out some of the weak genetic stock!

Pay attention to the details when watching any media. Look for the ways they use emotional techniques. They are trying to shape your mind, tell you what to believe. Wake up and pay attention! Do not be swayed by their loaded questions, their images of insanity. Television should be interactive. Use your brain when processing what they are giving you, do not just let it’s hypnotic waves wash over you and let the information in without running it through the filter of common sense and critical judgment.

p.s.  The weak genetic stock is just a joke. Don’t get all riled up about it. I certainly believe in letting everyone live their own lives MUCH more than our rulers do.
