Don't Need a Weatherman to Know Which Way the Wind Blows

Esteemed words of the inimitable Bob Dylan, first uttered in his prophetic 1965 hit, "Subterranean Homesick Blues" http://www.bobdylan.com/#/songs/subterranean-homesick-blues, a full read of which I highly recommend. In fact, I was tempted to simply post just those lyrics today, as they just about say it all. However, as always, "currency is currency" in today's fast paced world, and thus at approximately 3:19 PM, FOX issued a Breaking News report that ACORN's Las Vegas headquarters has been raided by Nevada authorities looking for evidence of voter fraud. Sigh. And so once again, we are reminded that Some Things Never Change:

Both the Weathermen and Bob Dylan are still going strong, as is the wide reaching ACORN organization and its ongoing, systematic initiative of voter fraud. The only thing that HAS changed in those 40 years is Main Stream Media, who have gone from a somewhat passable, if semisolid, reporting record to one so substandard as to be totally off-the-chart, seriously unrateable, leftwing biased, completely and blatantly-in-the-tank-for-Obama. Even Google and Yahoo have been caught trying to weight the scales in their hinky little hanky panky with bloggers who don't favor Obama. Just yesterday we received notice from someone who had paid for advertising unfavorable to Obama and, after having had her payment in the account for a week, was finally told that her "content was objectionable." This ad, by the way, contained absolutely NO inflammatory or vulgar language; it simply raised some very serious questions about Obama's qualifications and ability to rule, I mean govern.

Having given pass after pass to every single one of Obama's gaffes, lies, highly questionable affiliations, associations, and history, it is left to FOX, the once-maligned right-biased network, to report, finally, THE most Fair and Balanced news.

Over the last week, grim news of our economic woes, strongly affected by the actions [or non-action?] of the likes of ACORN, Freddie Mac, Fannie Mae, Franklin Raines, Jim Johnson, Barney Frank and members of the Democratic Black Caucus, has nearly trumped campaign news. Sarah Palin, however, acquitted herself well in the vice presidential debate and has gone on to attract huge crowds everywhere--and has not shirked her duty to raise questions about the Obama-Ayers-ACORN-Annenberg-Woods connections that go to the issue of Character. While the Obama camp and, apparently, Main Stream Media no longer seem to see the need and importance of having character high in integrity, compassion and integrity, those attributes are still the basic requirements for good leadership. One can only hope that, among the many things that have not changed, tonight's debate will find John McCain continuing to be himself, championing these fine traits with which he has been blessed and represent the moderate maverick that he is, because at this point, he is our only hope of escape from the long list of lies, bus-trampled bodies and totalitarian tactics long exhibited by the Obama camp, the DNC and the corporatocracy he so loyally represents. In fact, in view of his track record, the corporatocracy may be the ONLY thing to which he will remain loyal, thanks to that 60% financing he has received from the likes of Wall Street and his co-conspirators.

However, I digress. In fact, no one could express the lamentable state of main stream media more succinctly than Grail Guardian at Insight Analytical. I strongly suggest clicking on the link and reading Guardian's piece on Insight. http://insightanalytical.wordpress.com/2008/09/22/selling-america-why-the-msm-cant-tell-the-truth/
