STUCK ON STUPID
By Elaine Meinel Supkis
Quick, tell me the names of at least 10 dead people in this week's military deaths in Iraq and Afghanistan or from the two hurricanes! Hahaha.
Meet Citizen Anonymous. These are the piles of dead bodies with no names. The media has become so allergic to reporting the names of the dead, it would be funny except we are told to "never forget" 9/11, whatever that was...oh, Bush's trifecta! How can one forget winning the lottery? We are so lucky.
The rising death toll from hurricanes is sinking in the news. As more and more bodies are found they aren't found in the news. The news is still reporting on that missing white girl in Aruba, that is certain. Someone was arrested over that!
Our military which is in cahoots with Bush for hiding the deaths in their ranks is employing the same values here at home. Like with the many dead overseas, we are being "spared" this information because we want to make life easier for the victim's families who, even when homeless and scattered, shouldn't learn important news through the news. My. If someone dies in one's family, you certainly don't want any information, do you? At least, that is how these disconnected criminals think. Why alert anyone to the identifications of victims? Better to shut up.
Here is Lt. Gen. Honore on this subject:From Smirking Chimp:
Frustrated by questioning from the assembled press over efforts to help victims of the latest storm, Honore urged, "Let's not get stuck on the last storm. You're asking last-storm questions for people who are concerned about the future storm. Don't get stuck on stupid, reporters. We are moving forward. And don't confuse the people, please. You are part of the public message. So help us get the message straight. And if you don't understand, maybe you'll confuse it to the people. That's why we like follow-up questions. But right now, it's the convention center, and move on."Hey, totalitarian military bozo, we are all stuck WITH stupid and you aren't stupid, you are an autocrat of the worst sort.
When another reporter asked for clarification and "a little bit more about why that's happening this time," Honore responded with, "You are stuck on stupid. I'm not going to answer that question. We are going to deal with Rita."
As I pointed out, the military rides to the rescue only to utterly destroy because they are trained to do one thing: destroy stuff. Period. Whatever they build it is to destroy which is why all military rulers are evil, all of them, in the past and forever into the future. The worst ones are spooks like Putin who runs things into the ground, being a spook. And people who worship the devil are even worse than that, like Hitler.
From Capitol Hill Blue:
“It’s like working in an insane asylum,” says one White House aide. “People walk around like they’re in a trance. We’re the dance band on the Titanic, playing out our last songs to people who know the ship is sinking and none of us are going to make it.”Um, it has been since day one, an insane asylum. But before, the inmates who know they stole the election, thought no one would protest thanks to the bribes paid out in the form of tax cuts and goodies which are driving us in to unimaginable debts. Now they are trapped like rats. They are not in a good humor. Only briefly did demonstrators surround this insane asylum but they will be back, with a vengence, when we run out of heating oil and the price of gas goes up even more.
When Bush and the Pentagon co-conspiritors...remember, we hung German and Japanese Generals at the end of WWII!....managed to refuse to count civilian casualties, and they are dying like crazy every day over there!...everyone in power sighed with relief because good Americans behaved exactly like good Germans and Japanese. After bloggers besieged them over the dead soldiers being hidden from view, they all grudgingly allowed tiny bits of information out. But traditional "causalties" was turned into 'dead only" so we can only guess at the casualties. The death toll isn't trumpeted, either. Usually, the story headline is about, "Work on Constitution Ongoing in Iraq" and paragraph 24 has, "Five soldiers blown up today, names will be released later (sic)". When one person died in a tornado in Wisconsin, this didn't rate even slight mention in national news. The dead from Rita were discounted even as the hurricane was killing them. "No one dead!" yelled more than one headline. Ahem.
It was true, it wasn't one person dead, was it? It was a lot more.
Everyone knows that criminals try to hide their victims. In this case, the victims are in plain sight and we are still watching the criminals try to hide them. In this case, pointing in the opposite direction and telling us, looking at dead people is impolite.
Well, aren't they all a bunch of dainty Miss Manners!
