Iowa voters: What's your number one issue?
Lie to Pander to Keep Gravy Train Going!
Beside framing tactics of politicians and media people, they systematically lie or 'defocus' truth in order to be able to pander to whoever or whichever power that feeds them--their lush gravy trains. What does this do to the wholesomeness of life for middle class? It simply deceives and manipulates its mind away from the truth relevant to its personal and pressing issues. In other words middle class gets screwed again and again!
Let us take the issue of jobs, it is obvious that Greed has had the biggest role in our present economic disarray, but neither politicians nor media people are willing to tell the following truth about it: America has neither the will nor the resources (backlash to civil rights enactment of 60's) for training its middle class of the 21st century any longer, and even if it did, its prohibitive and relative cost of living standards for decent middle sustenance would make it too expensive to hire its graduates at right prices--given the competition coming from low labor costs of China, India, Brazil, etc. (new slave class of American super rich while it lasts). Please let us change the conversation of media and politicians to what is hurting American middle class rather than to the ones which put politicians in office! Hit hard with your reactions when you see it!
