|AP Sources: Obama To Reveal Civilian Deaths From Drones|
The story linked above was shared on social media by my friend Sean with this sarcastic comment:
"I'm sure we can rest assured the assessment will be honest and accurate."
His comment is funny because it is sarcastic. But it got me thinking. How sad is it that the American people now have the same dismissive view of our government and media that Soviet citizens had of Pravda & TASS?
Everything in America is being communized. (I may have created a new word there.) Only instead of a bloody revolution, they've done it little by little, classroom by classroom, boardroom by boardroom and political office by political office.
We know our government lies to us, spies on us, punishes dissenters and runs a shameless propaganda division that tells us whatever story advances the agenda of comrade Dear Leader. It's Bolshevism. We arrived without a shot being fired.
My friend's snarky comment is something uttered by the beleaguered people of the USSR.
