Consider the Possibilities

After you have finished reading my last post Statist Tools: Compliant Media Editing, I'd like you to consider the possibilities of the reaction at the Holder DOJ to this headline.

Rivals DirecTV and Dish team up to sell customized political ads.

Q: What do you suppose will be Eric Holder's first response should any of those political ads be critical of his boss, the Bummer?

A: Anti-trust indictment here we come!

Then there is this in the text of the headlined story:
"Dish and DirecTV said they would consider partnering with cable companies if it means they can reach a larger base."
Q: In the unlikely event that all those subscription services suddenly begin acting as if larger government is a bad thing (when you stop laughing...), what will the SSM be calling such an agreement?

A: An anti-American conspiracy in dire need of eradication.

What has happened to America? Look deeply into your mirror.

  1. When I look in the mirror, I see a guy who hasn't won enough souls to turn the tide of spiritual decay leading to the cultural and political decay we are seeing.

    1. The good news is you are not alone. Patience is a virtue we often overlook. What troubles me was my having had some chance in younger years to affect the tides more but was unprepared for the ruthlessness of our adversaries. I've related some of those events on this blog. I hold myself responsible for not recognizing the long war being waged.

  2. Yes, I to regret my foray into the liberal swamp in my younger years. But had I not gone there I don't think I would understand just how bad things really are now or how utterly bankrupt that ideology really is.

    All we can do at this point is hang on. If you go to church, do that often. If your church has a recovery ministry, work with it. Do what you can to set a good example in front of people who need it. Talk up the people you see in the drive through windows. Be friendly to every one you meet. Be the bright spot in their day.

    Any of those events could turn someone on the incorrect path to a better one.

    I think some of the signs are showing up and this will get to be a real bumpy ride over the next 6 months. If we play the role of Germany this time I am not sure who will come to the rescue. maybe we will rescue ourselves. maybe.

      That's me!

  3. Gentlemen. I'm honored that you find my blog worth your time. I am finding talking about the problem disheartening. Although now retired, I was a problem solver who later in career specialized in problem avoidance and training. I tend to view the country's problems as totally avoidable if only so many citizens were not being misguided by all those seeking power and their influence peddlers (aka propagandists and liars).

    My long silence this month was only partly because I was personally busy. If I can continue to offer my regular readers some insights into their own strengths, then maybe my talking about the problems is not all that unproductive. We all need morale boosts now and then. Though church attendance, good cheer, and prayer may be productive for a variety of reasons, none of us should ever claim He spoke directly to us.

    (Let's say He does. And that our good fortune was because He did. It would be natural to want to proclaim our gratitude for His direct gift. Beware that such has a hit of bragging for being favored by the One most High. Such a gifted person at best would be dismissed for saying so even were it the truth. We have a record of what happened to One for stating Truth. For mortals, it always comes down to how He blesses us; saying that we know He did it for us specifically leads to our cursing ourselves and, worse, a demeaning of faith to material gains rather than a resource to bear tough times and an infinitely receptive Source to direct our gratitude.)

    This is my opinion of course. I have no direct contact with Him. I'm only reporting my observations as they play out in this world of His Creation. In the end, we help that world by what we do rather than what we say. But sometimes what we say can aid others to come to terms with what they face and how they deal with it. Although this is not a religious blog in any direct sense, that wish often propels we to continue to write even when I feel talk is not what is needed.
