the discovery of fundemental values…

A strange silence……

It still feels a bit like a dream: going to Washington DC and participating in the 912 march. Being around the (however many: insert large # here) people, all so friendly, so patriotic, so worried about their beloved country.

We partied like it was 1773… atmoshere much closer to a party than a protest.  It was so gratifying to have that experience and be in the middle of this throng of people who cared enough to give up time and money and to express their unhappiness with their government and downright unwillingness to stand aside in silence.

We noticed on the way out how clean the grounds that just an hour earlier had been wall to wall tea partiers replete with costumes, coolers, chairs and signs was now the pristine lawn one would expect of a national capital. There were several trash receptacles close by that were not only overflowing but had a ring of trash all around the can. Several protesters picked up stray bits of rubbish and did their best to deposit it in the erupting trash bins.

The contrastbetween the condition the mall was left in after the inauguration and the care the tea party crowd took in showing respect to their nation’s treasured properties spoke volumes. I urge you to click through the hyper link to see the photographic essay of the difference…..its breathtaking……(we have our own photo’s f the state of the mall: I will update once I get my hands on the pics…)

It’s interesting to me that nothing was made of this differnce…that no news organization thought that the contrast was newsworthy…just one more example of the media in this country ceding responsibility for truth telling to become simple propaganda machines.

All week before we left for the march, after we got home, and told people where we had been….so many conservative minded folks we know; people who are uneasy about where their government is going but are armed only with the superficial information deemed relevant by the (refuse to call them main stream when they are so blatantly not main stream or main street in any way); for simplicity sake how about State Run Media: SRM: anyway, so many people I know had no idea about the march. Several did not know about the tea party movement at all!

If you are not a political junkie, like many of us obviously are, so you are watching your local news or network national news; you are reading your local newspaper and the main news magazines of our day, Newsweek, Time etc: you simply may not realize not so much that there is something wrong with your news, but that there is something missing.

For how are you to know what you are not hearing? Not hearing about a million people marching on washington to show their unhappiness with a statist agenda and failure to protect liberty and freedom? How are you to know that the organization aligned with the President for over 20 years, for whom he worked, taught and defended has corruption blatant in its very design? In spite of spectacular corruption caught on tape….silence.

How would you know the White House is trying to use the National Endowment of the Arts to create propoganda to help push the administrations agenda, blurring, crossing and obliterating the lines of proprietity and conflict of interest. (at you, the tax payer’s expense, no less).

You didn’t hear that one of the President’s top advisors was a self-avowed communist who believes white people are intentionally steering poison into black communities or that one of the so-called czars thought putting sterilization chemicals into drinking waters is a good idea……..Imagine what else you do not know……

read…..investigate….seek out all news and all opinions…question all motives and all agendas……freedom requires our vigilance!

  1. Dear Tina,

    I check your blog daily. I have been recluctant to post any thing as I do not put my thoughts into word that well. So my post will be short and simply put.

    What I observed on 9/12 was that you don’t always have to wear a uniform to fight for your country. What I saw was a army of patriots fighting for this country, patriots who believe in the constitution and our god give rights to pursue freedom and happiness.
