A Nation of Sheep

…with sincere apologies to sheep.

Today is the 15th day of the popular uprising in Egypt, which began on January 25.
News of the unrest have been on national and local TV broadcasts, radio, newspapers, and the Internet.
And yet, more than half of the American population know little or nothing about the tumult, despite its troubling implications for U.S. oil supplies (from the Mideast which must go through the Suez Canal), foreign  policy (think Israel), and national security (if Egypt goes radical Muslim as Iran did in 1979).
The latest national survey by the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press, conducted Feb. 2-7, 2011 among 1,385 adults, finds that 52% report hearing little or nothing about the anti-government protests in Egypt, while 48% say they have heard a lot.
However, no doubt a staggering majority, if not all Americans, know that starlet Lindsay Lohan is in trouble with the law again….

i read this in the readers digest “having an opinion is not the same as having knowledge,” february 2011 i read it yesterday and when i went to quote it today i couldn’t find it but its in there somewhere. anyway it has to do with people nowadays celebrities for the most part who spew their opinion which may be 5% fact and 95% crap. and the nation of sheep say “bahhh bahhh,”
but i play a scientist on tv so that means i know what i’m talking about…

Reports are that Hamas is helping Al Queda move into the Sinai. This situation is beyond serious!
A point the diplomatic editor for the Jerusalem Post made on his radio interview Feb. 2nd with Walter Bingham, was that Obama’s attitude basically showed Pro-Western Middle East allies like Saudi Arabia and Jordan that Obama’s White House did not have their backs! In other words, he’s thrown Mubarak under the bus !

Eowyn my friend,
You just might want to keep that headline handy for future use, say, around the morning of November 07, 2012, when we all wake up to the realization that the government “educated,” American Idol-watching, People Magazine-reading dumbMasses have reelected Barack Hussein Obama to a second term.
For the last nine or ten years, I have been contending that thanks mostly to government education, America will become too stoopid to carry on as a free nation for much longer.
I have the really sick feeling I will be proven correct a little over 21 months hence.
