Operation Can You Hear Us Now?

Leave a comment

My post today is the following press release from Operation Can You Hear Us Now?  I recommend anyone who can to take part in this protest. The mainstream media is not doing their jobs and we need to remind them.

On October 17th, 2009 thousands of citizens will rally in cities across the nation on the doorsteps of “Main Stream Media” outlets protesting media bias and complicity in advancing a political agenda. To date, almost 100 events are scheduled simultaneously to occur, with more being added daily.

Intelligent, clear-minded, patriotic citizens from all walks of life will converge on this day to protest widespread media bias as practiced by “news organizations” across the USA.

“Operation Can You Hear Us Now? – March on Media” is an event designed to take the message of the people to the press. Recent events of national importance have taken place and received NO PRESS in the current Main Stream Media environment (9/12 March on DC, ACORN Scandal, Avowed Communist working in White House, etc).  These and other “travesties” are the impetus for this one day event.

“Operation Can You Hear Us Now? – March on Media” is a grassroots movement in which citizens are organizing independently in their own communities and at their own discretion. Many Tea Party Groups, 9/12 Groups, and citizen action groups have joined together to make this event a success. People are using Facebook, Twitter, Craig’s List, their existing groups, and even starting new groups to connect and make a statement to media organizations in their community. This is a message that has resonated with thousands upon thousands around the United States.

It is the opinion of hundreds of thousands, if not millions of people that the Main Stream Media has become just another mouthpiece of “Big Government”.

We submit that the Main Stream Media is “guilty” of the following misconduct:

  • Journalistic Malpractice
  • Yellow Journalism
  • Extreme Bias
  • Unfair and Unbalanced Reporting
  • Reporting That Reflects a Political Agenda
  • Complicity, Cover-up and Deceit
  • Partnering with Big Government
  • Reporting of Self-Commissioned polls as “News”
  • Willful Misrepresentation of Facts
  • Loss of all Objectivity

Citizens across the nation are encouraged to participate by joining in this media protest. For up-to-the-minute information please visit the website or your local city coordinator.

POLITICO: Ensign receives handwritten confirmation – Live Pulse – Ensign receives handwritten confirmation

This article gives the penalty for failure to get government health insurance or pay the fine for not doing so.

Sen. John Ensign (R-Nev.) received a handwritten note Thursday from Joint Committee on Taxation Chief of Staff Tom Barthold confirming the penalty for failing to pay the up to $1,900 fee for not buying health insurance.

Violators could be charged with a misdemeanor and could face up to a year in jail or a $25,000 penalty, Barthold wrote on JCT letterhead. He signed it “Sincerely, Thomas A. Barthold.”

The note was a follow-up to Ensign’s questioning at the markup.

Never Forget 9-11-2001

Leave a comment

Eight years ago today I answered the phone to hear my daughter’s trembling voice. “Mama, are you watching T.V.? Are you watching the news?” We weren’t, but immediately changed channels to see what was happening.

The rest of the day was surreal. My husband and I sat in front of the television as the second plane hit the towers. We saw the carnage at the Pentagon. We watched in horror as the World Trade Center buildings collapsed and the dust and debris billowed down the streets of New York like an ash flow rushing down the side of a volcano. We listened to reports of a third plane that was missing, and then reported as crashed.

Emotions were raw. Pain and agony ripped through our hearts for the dead, dying, and their families; admiration for the heroes who dashed in to help and met their deaths in the effort; anger that reached the very depths of our souls at whoever planned and carried out these acts of unheard of violence; fear that it was not over and more violence would continue through the day.

We will never forget.

Few other events are seared into my memory like September 11, 2001. One is the Challenger disaster, the other, JFK’s assignation. As bad as they were, they pale in comparison.

Eight years have gone by and we all pause today in our own ways to remember the heroes that died that day. People like us, going about their daily routine, harming no one; victims’ of a horrid act of terrorism and cold-blooded murder.

Let us all pause today and put aside our own concerns for a few moments. Let us pause and reflect on September 11, 2001. Let us say a prayer for those lost to us and their families who continue to live with that loss.

And never, ever forget 9-11-2001.
