Skip to comments.The Wall Street Occupiers as Mind Erasers

Barack Obama may not be the kind of man you and I want as president, but he's a very slick stage magician. That's how he's made it in politics, along with scandal bombs tossed by Axelrod. The 2008 Obama campaign was an endless series of stage tricks, epitomized by the infamous Greek styrofoam temple columns in Denver.
Stage magicians work a lot by distraction. A well-timed distraction makes people lose track of whatever they are thinking. If I'm an in-your-face street hustler and you're beginning to get suspicious about me, all I have to do is tap your shirt and say, "Is that a van Heusen shirt? That looks really cool! I always wanted one of those!" By that time, you've lost that little suspicious thought. It's been erased from your mind by distraction.

Your personal computer is the biggest free speech weapon you have. Use it wisely, with common sense and courtesy, to reflect your real values. We don't need to resort of leftist totalitarian methods. We just need to tell the truth, over and over again.I keep telling myself I have to sign up and become a poster on a lot of high-profile sites so that I can paraphrase some of the best of what gets posted here in FR so that more people "out there" can see it.
I haven't found the time to do such a thing, but I'm hoping at least a few Freepers have.
I would like a wider discussion of the value of posting to less friendly web sites. If this is a viable means of communicating with a wider range of people I am all for it. Libs have been doing this for years - note Seminar callers to Rush with lib topic of the day.
My sense is this is happening with increasing effectiveness. I see it especially on Facebook where Libs are routinely slaughtered for expressing their benighted views.
With the most important presidential election in our nation’s history looming it is imperative that Truth be Told.
I have the perfect stage prop for the community orgainzer and chief!!!! I pass this hotel on my way to work, for the past 5 years, 5 years! the union members have been protesting outside and thier mascot is a gigantic grey blow up rat. perfect
I would like a wider discussion of the value of posting to less friendly web sites.First of all, I personally would consider "which sites".
I would never post on DU or anything like DU.
On the spectrum of SomeWhatFriendly to AbsoluteEnemy, I would start with the SomeWhatFriendly, like Fox News, Wall Street Journal, National Review, Washington Times (not sure which of these actually have comment pages) and then consider moving on downstream to the MSM such as NY Times and LA Times (again, I don't know if comments are posted there).
But I would never go so far "down" as to get anywhere near anything like DU.
An interesting target site that actually has a lot of Americans and a lot of conservatives (as well as a lot of leftists and "independents") is the British Telegraph Online. One of its columnists is James Delingpole, one of the best AGW debunkers in the world.
Stage magicians and media work a lot by distraction.It’s how the idiot got elected.
Idiots voting for a idiot.
stumbleupon.com is a good site to use. It’s easy to sign up and use, and has a wide readership.
