Upon what do “U” focus…?

Upon what do “U” focus…?

…I submit for your consideration that today in America honestly deciding for yourself where and upon what to place your focus is a formidable challenge…

 

…The speed today of American society places an incessant demand upon us to “pay-attention-to-me” … “me being whatever is in the moment $creaming the most vociferously … the “screaming” dependent upon how much $$$ is being paid in the competing crescendo to garner our attention …

 

…Being able filter and select what for us is worth our time and talent in such an overwhelming environment is not a skill American education teaches…

 

…In the last 50 years in particular we have chosen to educate to the lowest common denominator… what best prepares today’s student to contribute to corporate bottom line … think … “citizens united” … think …  $upreme Court … think … robot … think … oops, make that do not think…

 

…To “prep” us on this course … think … FoxyNew$ … delivering 30 second sound bites by coiffured adeptly applied make-up carefully choreographed “talking-heads” … now deemed by our $upreme Court – news … as the $uprem$ decreed corporate news media solely decides what is newstruth is not part of the equation…

 

…Removal of – truth – historically reputed cornerstone of America’s “press” gave rise to “whatever-you-can-get-away-with” … let your imagination run wild … just go for it … and in all facets of American life that has become our prevailing refrain…

 

What was yesterday’s little “white lies” are today – gospel – take that to the bank … those reputed to be once authentic pillars of reasonable truthfulness have, with a few exceptions, passed into history … replaced by the glib, flash, brazen, the shameless … the what’s in it for me … to hell with you … You need know only what I deem appropriate … delivered in a manner I solely deem appropriate … and that’s the truth so help me god…!

 

Whatever-you-can-get-away-with … food … GMO are safe … but … we do not have to disclose anything to you … just trust us…

 

Whatever-you-can-get-away-with … medicine … Vaccines are safe … … we do not have to disclose anything to you … just trust us…

 

Whatever-you-can-get-away-with … education … America is honorable … has only everyone’s best interest as our guiding principle … (you think?) … we educate to enable each individual to achieve his/her highest potential …(yea,right) … as our leaders choose never to disclose education is a controlled mechanism designed to produce robotic “workers” meeting in the moment desired and deigned corporate need and treated simply as a line item on a P&L statement to be discarded when no longer needed or too costly…

 

 Whatever-you-can-get-away-with … social security … today American society is designed to provide at the least co$t  to corporate a level of sustenance, housing, material goods and entertainment for the greatest number of individuals dangling the “carrot” but keeping ever handy the “stick”… used whenever to arouse fear or dispel it … depending upon corporate need in the moment … thank you … “citizen$ united”…

 

Whatever-you-can-get-away-with … humanity … a word treated by American government and corporate business like a football … kicked in one moment … tossed in another …  hoisted up triumphantly … then suddenly dropped and smothered in yet another … correspondingly how women, children, elderly, mentally & physically challenged are treated by police … who allegedly swore and oath … “to serve & to protect” you and me … but who answer to corporate masters pulling the strings of government leaders city, county, state, national, world… the level and extent of abuse of “person” now common place with no end in sight … no form of abuse declared intolerable including sanctioned “killing” via drones of innocent individuals, men, women, children, sick, hospitalized … and the “topper” comes as we sing, marvel, praise, applaud the physical prowess of muscled professional football players appearing on social media cruelly beating unmercifully woman and children in their lives … their only punishment is they lose a few paychecks but serve no jail time … and amazingly we find this entirely acceptable … just what the hell does that say about us…???

 

Whatever-you-can-get-away-with … marijuana … likely if you are fortunate enough to be an actor, professional athlete, politician, celebrity getting caught possessing marijuana will get your name in social media, a blemish on your record, possibly a night in jail … and a ride home in a limo… on the other hand if you are just John Q Public it is entirely likely you will end up dead at the hands of the police … yes in America $$$ and presumed social status count … so much for “all men are created equal”…

 

Whatever-you-can-get-away-with … politics   determining what is “true” appears a near impossible task we find ourselves facing what appears to be an insurmountable challenge of determining is he/she lying…?  Jokingly it has been noted that whenever a politician’s mouth moves they lie, perhaps there is a fundament truth in that assessment…?  But all joking aside Americans face an opportunity very shortly to elect a new President as well as new members to the House of Representatives and 50% new Senators … without mentioning numerous local issues of important … it strikes me the fundamental question facing America when we “vote” in 2016 is are we going to allow politics to be whatever you can get away with or will we hold every politician’s feet to the fire, city, county, state, national, world … it’s our call

…Remember it is solely your decision whether this information is sufficiently “vetted” & by whom…
