Greetings from Calico Blackie!
Wall Street greed seems to go on unchecked while the people suffer.
The world (or at least, our habitat) is being destroyed at a record pace, and nobody seems to care.
We’re too busy playing with our iPhones and other gadgets.
We’re too busy with what the latest celebrity is doing to care about what really matters.
Maybe that’s the way it should be.
If we all suddenly stopped using our gadgets, started paying attention, and stopped worrying about what some rich tart was doing, we would all rise up.
And by rising up, we might ruin our credit ratings!
Life is hard, so why worry about things we think we have no control over?
Why worry about anything that we think won’t affect our small circle?
Why worry about what goes unreported in the world by our mainstream media?
If it was important, surely “they” would tell us about it.
How many people out there know about the worldwide anti-fracking protests that occurred a few days ago?
There were THOUSANDS of people in the streets, yet our mainstream media didn’t utter a peep.
Because it might tear our attention away from West Nile disease. Or we might not worry about some kid being kidnapped by gypsies in Greece and instead focus our attention on the screwing we’re getting.
If anyone gives a damn, here is some news…..
Police cars explode in Canada as fracking protests turn violent
What started as a peaceful protest by the Mi’kmaq First Nation in Elsipogtog, New Brunswick against a shale gas project has now spun violently out of control. After the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) advanced on the anti-fracking protest, demonstrators clashed with police, chemical agents were deployed and at least half a dozen police vehicles were destroyed by Molotov cocktails.
At least 40 arrests have been confirmed by authorities, who also report that a gunshot was fired. According to the New Brunswick police, their officers have not discharged their firearms. The First Nation protesters have accused the RCMP of causing the clash by raiding their anti-fracking protest with arms drawn.

You sure didn’t see this on the news, did you?
No. What did we see (and are still seeing)?
Miley Cyrus ass. Twerking. Hayden Panettiere got engaged. A pro-2nd Amendment protest was held at the Alamo. An oarfish washed up on a California beach. The government shutdown. The end of the government shutdown.
Not to downplay the protest at the Alamo, but have you noticed that lately it is still OK to protest as long as the protests aren’t concerned with Wall Street and their wholly-owned subsidiary in Washington, DC?
That’s an arrestin’!
