hey iran...

The recent Iranian hoopla really bothers me, not for the right of democracy that most are blindly shouting for, but for the fact that we the people don't cry out as much about our own fucked up american system.

do we really need to stick our nose in others business when our business is so fucked up?

1. I ask why aren't we being more skeptical of the news media that most US citizens have zero faith in.

2. Isn't this a country that hangs gays, forces pre-pubescent girls in to marriage/rape and other customs that I don't get, and are definitely not ok within our society.

so, let them work it out, but, really, shouldn't we get our house in order before we whine about the way others run things?

I'd like to suggest fixing the corrupt, unfair voting system we have here - maybe talk with each other about voting thru out the 4 year presidential term and not just the 4 months before an election.

I'm including a documentary video that captures media manipulation by OUR media during a situation that seems to similar to the Iranian's.

On a side note, I do hope the Iranians can rise up and set an example for the people of the world, especially the fearful masses of the good ol USofA.

you have a habit of telling others to act and that you will then "be right there with them". why don't YOU act and maybe we'll follow.

but I am mr/mrs. anonymous.

I'm doing, are you?

Hmmm... me, my wife, my family dedicated a year of our life (well 2 years, but who's counting) to document the PEOPLE during the election year.

I'll bet you sat and payed attention to the media and the politicians and posted anonymously.

I DO hit the streets, I DO live a life that excludes corporate influence, I shop at co-ops and independent stores and shun the simple life most choose.

so... what do you do, besides talk.

btw - I've been DOing for 25 yrs, doing for the underground and a true supporter of the arts and alt. political movements.

also nuff said - where in the note do I say ACT???
I'm saying THINK and ask more questions.

the video isn't about action, it's about illustration, illustrating that the media manipulates YOU.

My Photo

over 20 years of refusing the invites of the educated, celebrity and ruling classes, preferring instead the excitement of upper low class, poverty, petty crime and violence.

It's not the wine and cheese I hate, it's the boring, void of anything lives the rich and privileged scurry thru like the walking dead on meth - most of the rich think their cultured simply by consuming - culture can't be bought, it must be lived.

I was truly meant to live on the side of a hill, growing my own tomatoes, basil and garlic in peace with my soul mate and dog.
