Can the Emotion. I Need Facts.

I’m old enough to remember when Walter Cronkite gave us the evening News. And it was. News, that is. Facts. Cold, hard facts. But facts are not what brings in the big bucks these days, it’s playing on the emotions of the public to get you on ‘their’ side of the issues. Why does the media have to have their side of an issue? Why does the media have to get involved in politics? Money. Always follow the money.

24 hour news channels turned the News into entertainment. You see, there really isn’t that much news out there on a day to day basis. So, what the Cable News channels, and now the so-called Main Stream News like ABC, CBS and NBC, has to do is to keep you interested in their version of the one story of the day by spinning it every which way except for the facts and the truth. Their facts. Their truth. Not THE facts or THE truth. Facts and Truth have become relative in our warped, twisted world. Or so the people trying to fool you into believing their line of crap would have you believe.

Thanks to Obama so-called journalists no longer have to have three sources to back up their stories which makes them free to invent whatever BS and nonsense sells. And the more sensational the better. It all reminds me of the stories I read in school about the Roman Emperors keeping the masses in control by providing them with entertainment in the Colosseum. Control. That’s the name of the game.

Is it surprising that the last White House press sec left her job to work for MSNBC and the current press sec is in a relationship with someone who works for CNN? Media is now an arm of the government. Sounds a bit like communism to me.

Government and the media are in it hand and glove, for the mighty dollar and the control of the masses. They tell us what their version of the truth is and want to deny us the right to object, subject us to lawlessness and crime and deny us the right to defend ourselves. Why? They want a country of mindless drones who will do what they’re told and not ask questions.

You WILL be vaxed. You WILL go green. You WILL be tracked online and in person via your so-called smart phones. You WILL submit. Or else. What or else you ask? Well, don’t you think it’s a bit odd that so many food processing plants are being burned to the ground in the past year? And why is the cost of gasoline and diesel fuel continuing to rise? Why are the shelves in our supermarkets becoming bare again? That’s the ‘or else’ part in my opinion.

Cops are turned into the bad guys, Antifa and BLM run rampant and nothing is done about it. Politicians and celebs all have their own private security details so what does it matter that you and I aren’t safe on the streets, and in many cases our own homes? Billionaires jump on their private jets and fly to conferences to push the latest green nonsense that ends up costing more than the use of fossil fuels and in the meantime, ordinary citizens who actually need to get from one place to another on a commercial flight are treated like lepers and forced to jump through hoops to get in line to board a plane…then the flights are cancelled.

Our country is rapidly turning into a third world hell hole. We can’t be sure our votes are being counted properly or that the entire election process isn’t rigged. What do we do when we don’t have a vote? What do we do when we are censored on social media? What do we do when we are repeatedly lied to and manipulated by the media and our elected officials? What do we do when a jury is stacked in favor of the government and due process is a thing of the past? What do we do when we can’t afford to fuel our vehicles or buy food and necessities?

Sounds a bit like….well….North Korea or Cuba for instance.

I am a Native Texan, Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother, Catholic Convert residing in rural North East Texas since 1975 when I married my husband and this small town girl became a country girl. I was taught to knit at the age of ten and discovered the writings of Elizabeth Zimmerman shortly after I married. I learned to ‘unvent’ things as I went along, to create my own patterns and generally have a blast with yarn and needles. In the mid 1980’s I explored the idea of spinning my own yarn and eventually got interested in weaving on a floor loom. I have three spinning wheels and a 24″ four-shaft Herald floor loom that I purchased from a friend in the 1990’s. I also enjoy sewing, tatting and making rosaries. I have a work room that contains my fiber, yarn, floor loom, sewing machines, serger and rosary making supplies. I have a spinning corner in a bedroom next to my work room, both with north windows looking toward the creek.
