Have you run across videos or images that cut through the corporate news media BS?

Well dust them off and lets put together a collection for all to enjoy.

The Fairness Doctrine is a distant memory.

Mega Corporations are enjoying the all new

Citizens United spending Bonanza and producing a toxic environment in every form of communication all the way down to those dreaded chain emails.

Not to worry, we have many tools on deck to combat this onslaught.

Of course there are things like, the truth, facts, and logic, but why stop there?

We can also rely on  humorists, comedians and artists using every genre to lay bare the myth that the news is legitimate news and corporations actually like you… News Flash… Those Corporations… They are not that into you.

Would any one notice the difference if Fox News changed their slogan from Fair and Balanced to Republican Propaganda Broadcasting?

The mega corporations have an agenda that does not support the American middle class.

You might think that corporate America would want a very healthy American middle class being that the middle class is the economic engine of our country.  That is not what the past few decades have revealed.

There is a silver lining to all of this toxic turmoil.

I am making a killing with my new invention of the Sharpie with automatic spell check!

Lets Fight Fire with Satire!

Khirad, this is Rich. Literally. Did you know that it has come out recently that on his filing forms he listed his occupation as “soldier.” Need I say more?

I’ve never been 100 percent clear what the John Birch Society really was … and my dad was a member.

Socially acceptable and institutionalized paranoia, Pepe, that’s all! 😉

They saw communists in every branch of government, both local and national, in every university, in the military, in Hollywood, most certainly in the unions and definitely under every bed.

Goals: ruin careers, destroy marriages and families, and guarantee that fear of the people, by the people and for the people shall not perish from the face of the earth.

Other than that, they were a pretty harmless lot.

True story, because my dad belonged to that group, we used to get all kinds of weird mailings from Aryan Nations and groups like that asking for donations. We got this stuff in our mailbox for years after he died. They were selling their membership lists to some pretty extreme groups.

I don’t doubt it, Pepe. Some of them were pretty extreme themselves!

Oh my goodness Bito. The atomic bomb could knock YOU down or throw you and you might get hurt, but it can destroy a building?

If you see the flash, duck and cover is not going to help you, nor is closing the blackout curtains. But we all believed it at one time. The incredible thing is we had all seen the damage to Nagasaki and Hiroshima yet we still believe duck and cover. We really were innocent back then

Sue, I have had some good laughs about the “duck & cover” thing with people that lived during that experience. Oh to have the coveted job of being in charge of closing the windows and the curtains–“teachers pet”–even though the whole school would be a pile of rubble, you got those windows shut! 😆

I know, amazing how far we have come but how far back some want to take us. i will be the one who is kicking and screaming as they lead me off to one of “their” not Obama’s FEMA camps. I will never concede to their idea of America. Now how did I get off on that one?

I couldn’t decide where to post this, but given Jon Stewart is a satirist, I finally decided this was the most appropriate. It’s Teri Gross’ interview with Jon Stewart for her NPR program…Fresh Air:
