Someone asked my opinion of the current saga raging regarding Sarah Palin, her daughter's pregnancy and John McCain's choice of VP.
I have to say first and foremost that I am of the firm belief that the 'shadow government' are laughing their socks off at the frenzy being created. It must give them great mirth, something to chortle over whilst dining, to watch and hear the heated ping-pong of debates for and against Sarah Palin and co.
I've seen this before. It's called 'distraction'. Keep the masses occupied whilst plans are being made to create even more chaos in the world. 'They won't notice' - and true to form we don't.
This may sound pessimistic but I prefer to keep my eyes on the real deal rather than hyped issues of irrelevance. I use the word irrelevance because both major parties represents 6 of one and a half dozen of the other. No major difference.
It's like watching a popular nasty soap opera, or American Idol or Big Brother - you are viewed as a party pooper if you don't have a detailed opinion on it all, if you state that it is all much of a muchness and makes no real difference to anything. Vote red or blue or independent and the underlying problems will still be there. The only change will be on how you perceive things. Nothing else.
So you have a choice: to continue to feed ignorance or take a long, rational look behind the smoke and mirrors. It's up to you. It's your call.
