'WATCH TELEVISION - Weapon of Mass Persuasion'
THE TRUTH WILL NOT BE TELEVISED!
Think... CRITICAL THINKING!!!
AVOID THE MANIPULATION

"Any dictator would admire the uniformity and obedience of the U.S. media." Noam Chomsky
Study proves 95% of people really are sheeple:
Scientists at the University of Leeds have conducted research that proves the tendency many have to act like sheep, unwittingly following crowd as if they didn't possess a reasoning mind. While this tendency may have its uses in some situations, such as planning pedestrian flow in busy areas, it doesn't inspire a ton of hope for humankind.
The study showed that it takes a minority of just five percent to influence a crowd's direction - and that the other 95 percent follow without even realizing what is going on.
"Logic, reasoning, and critical thinking are all meals on the menu of threats to the power of the status quo."

'Try Not to Think of a Newt'
The current President and Congress are destroying our Constitutional rights, our planet's climate, and the vestiges of a social safety net, and you are obsessing over a freak show of self-hating homosexuals and anti-intellectual intellectuals jumping through hoops in a corporate media circus ...
Self-government is not a spectator sport. Elections are not reality shows. There is much more at stake than a soap opera. The first step, and it is a more difficult step than sleeping in a tent in the ice cold rain, is to cease giving a damn what some individual who is stripping away your rights and the fruits of your labors really feels in his heart of hearts. Stop it. We do not have the time. Politicians who make speeches opposing everything they do must be pushed to match action to words, not treated as if words speak more loudly than actions. That attitude is what leads us to focus on what a gaggle of misfits with no power and less wisdom have to say about each other, just because they're on the teevee screen. Get serious. Get independent. Get principled. And stay nonviolent toward everything in the world except your television.
