Is Agreeing With Piers Morgan a Sign of the Apocalypse?
Today, I have seen a true sign of the end of the world: I have to agree with Piers Morgan.
In a statement that might make the Guinness World Record as the “largest understatement”, Piers is of the belief that the press has been “too soft” on Obama. Really? Do you think so? Ever since the idiotic question posed to Bill Clinton asking him if he wears “boxers or briefs,” the press has grown more inane and pathologically useless.
They chase celebrities and their children down like pack of animals for photographs. They vie for Jay Carney’s attention and serve up mundane and useless milquetoast questions, much like a satirical clip on late night television. Steve Allen had a variety show in the eighties with a sketch called “Eye Witless News.” The premise was a newsroom with people running around like headless chickens, throwing sheets of paper in the air, and giving hilarious and intentionally ignorant news stories. That was for comedy, but today’s media is the real joke.
There is a very sincere and dangerous agenda—directed and owned by large corporations–that has been indoctrinated into today’s journalists. They are profit driven, but it is more than just a simple money trail; it is some perverse desire to tear apart the very fabric of our values and our country’s basis makeup. Do these “journalists” really believe a Utopian society can exist? Do they believe it can be made into that illusive dream if they tear down the family, Christianity and the capitalistic system of hard work that the American dream was built on?
I am not an economist, but simple math will show that eventually all good things come to an end and the bill comes due. Our tab is running and the price is going to be high when the system collapses upon itself from the internal weight. So why is the press so complacent about issues that matter, and seem so willing to beguile the American people? What is their real agenda? More importantly, who is behind this diabolical path?
If it weren’t my country that is at risk, I would laugh and say that todays’ news and government are like the comic books I read as a child. The comic book premise is simple: the bad guys are planning to take over the world with a predictable and transparent plot, while the good guys see right through it and take it to the authorities. The good people of the town are frightened or intimidated by the bad guys. The good guys catch them in the act, the town is set free and the day is saved from evil.
The difference from those stories and the United States today is that the town people are drunk on all the “free stuff” being served to them and they can no longer tell the good guys from the bad guys. In fact, many of these people believe that what was once good is bad, and bad has become good. They have listened to hateful spew of the networks until they are infected with a mob mentality. They refuse or are afraid to reason and think for themselves. They want to fit in, and go along to get along.
That is not what this country is about at all. We were the original rebels. We did not want to conform to the mandates of a king, or a government, or even an established religion. How have we as a nation have come so far from our original disposition, and changed so much?
Stop buying into a fairy tale and demand the objective truth we deserve in the news! Start seeking alternative news outlets. Read all of them and draw your own conclusions. As my Dad always said, “Use your head for something besides a hat rack.”
And don’t worry, boys and girls, the world isn’t coming to end after all. Piers Morgan, the former scandal sheet editor (hack) has given a literary critique on the second amendment. So, he and I are at odds once again. Armageddon is still on the horizon, but it’s not yet here. Sleep tight and dream of the Pilgrims as they risked all to come to a free land and remember there will never be another like the United States. Beg God for their courage.
