Class warfare goes even dirtier ...
March 2nd, 2012 Kansas City - How to make the stupids sell themselves out
I love it, honestly, I love it! There goes one guy, photoshops a restaurant bill and puts it to the internet, garnished with some malignant comments right down the politcal correct class warfare alley - and the next thing is, the whole story gets viral! Millions of people buy it because they want to believe it's true. Their leader Obama has said so, thus, it has to be true? Right?
Well, not twenty-four hours later, the restaurant, becoming aware of the situation, tells "The Smoking Gun", it's all a fake and they have the original receipt. The one in the internet is photoshopped! As if nobody saw that before, but it was so much more fun to follow the other sheeple and let out a little bit of the envious anger against "the rich".
The updates, informing the readers, that the mass of left biased lamestream media bouught the fake, is small, hard to notice and of course, nobody who read the article a day earlier will ever learn about it. The class warfarers have completed their mission once more successfully and millions of voters have bought it. In November, when it's time to decide, they will know, all the rich are bad and only their one and only, true sanctified leader can rescue them.
Wait, wait, rescue from what exactly? From having jobs? From determining themselves, how to spend their own money ... or maybe from thinking by themselves?I mean, look at that: One guy, who literally is unimportant, throws a ball in the field for his five minutes of rather anonymous fame and to propagate the ideology, he had swallowed hook line and sinker years ago. As a matter of fact, he multiplies the bait and throw it out for the kids, for the young ones who don't know better. And Obama, Pelosi, Reid, Rangle, Waterman and whatever their names are, lean back and enjoy the votes. All of them are rich, very rich in fact. So either, they are also with "the bad guys" or they just managed the most genius move in history (at least since the Democratic Party made people believe Conservatives are all racists while they founded the KKK). They made the sheeple sell themselves out in favor of this bunch of millionaires with Ivy League history.
I know, I know, America likes it's politics always a little louder and more colorful than Europeans.

The faked receipt, note the pixel errors on the lower edge of the upper sheet and the different printer setting on upper and lower sheet.

And maybe, just maybe, this is all over-rated. But then, I come originally from Germany. I learned about certain aspects of German history in school. One of them is how Joseph Goebbels, German secretary of state for propaganda under the Nazis, abused the media for his purposes. And how willingly media let themselves be abused.
Now, that's a scary picture, isn't it? See, this guy, who faked a receipt to let out steam, he committed basically a petty crime. And maybe, we don't know why he is so angry at his boss, there are mitigating circumstances. And I can't even blame the sheeple, who swallowed the whole load of whatever it was. Stupids are called stupids because they are stupid, it's kind of insanity defense here.
As a matter of fact, I can't even blame the political leadership of the Democratic Party. They are politicians, they are campaigning and all real facts are against them. They have to play grandstand and give the dumb a perceived enemy, knowing very well, it will solve exactly one problem: How to get votes. Nothing else. They are politicians, politics is a dirty business and thus, they are masters in playing it dirty.
But as a matter of fact, I blame the mainstream media. Press, TV and also news outlets on the
internet have a duty to inform. Not to disinform, not to propagate the lie openly and not to drive their own bias. That is not journalism, that is just once more letting themselves being abused. It has been once the end of the freedom of information in Germany, when the media then gave up their integrity, it comes now here damn near to the same thing.
So what can we do? Of course, we can think for ourselves, we can check back on an article in Yahoo to see whether there is mayby a little five-liner added in a very discrete way to inform us, they jumped on the train of a fake once more, because it fit the "journalist's" bias.
The problem is, there are many out there, who don't want to think for themselves. They just buy it. The uneducated without money will rather follow a demagogue telling them, it's all x's or y's fault than seeing what they can do to improve their life circumstances. Even it's pretty clear, making the rich poor doesn't help any poor. Goebbles told the unemployed, it was all the Jew's fault and the stupids ate it. Nowadays, the medi tell us, it's all the rich's fault (well or President Bush's fault as well). And the stupids buy it. Again.

Affaire of the Poisons

Michael Lee Lockhart
... and with a little delay, another serial made it into the serial killer collection. Michael Lee Lockhart, not so much interesting for his "achievements" but because his case appears as if he became a psychopath only after a serious head injury.

The Syracuse Dungeon Master
John T. Jamelske aka the Syracuse Dungeon Master has been added to our Serial Killer Collection. While not a seria killer but a serial rapist, Jamelske represents a similar psychopathology as some OCD type serial killers, for example Dahmer and therefore is some valuable object for studies.
