We live in what could only be seen as strange times. The so-called Main Stream Media is at best contradictory and delusional, so much so I am reminded of an event some while back that was staged to sell products into the Fenestration Industry. The front man for the event was the self-styled consumer champion Nick Ross, his main sales pitch, paraphrasing, the Fenestration Industry is made up of ‘crooks and charlatans’ and the consumer needs protection from it. In essence, you guys in the audience whose money we want today are not to be trusted, the consumer doesn’t trust you, as you are the worst of the worst - so you must pay us for protection. I still question, what was he on, was he for real, or was it the Mafia moving in.
Out in the other Walter Mitty World that is politics we have similar delusional sales pitches. From one corner it is Vote me into power as your representative and I will Give you this. Then from another direction you get I will raise that offer and Give you this plus more. This is a strange if not a bizarre sales tactic especially when they conveniently forget to mention the this is your money they want to give away or give you back – as if you can’t use it more wisely yourself. Not to mention, for every successive bid they make, it means you have less in your wallet. At the rate they are spending our money we won’t be able to afford Christmas. more......more
