“From a marketing point of view, you don’t introduce new products in August.”

a lengthy labor of love, sharing a salient, timely,..'associative' Composition on the story of NOW...

“From a marketing point of view, you don’t introduce new products in August.”

It appears some Senate Republicans are suspiciously reluctant to investigate this 21st century war. They would relinquish any oversight role, -reviewing the commitment of money, resources and lives, to a foreign entanglement of highly dubious merit, justness, legality and beyond the determination of 'correctness', Illegality- because we are talking about right and wrong , Good OR Bad HERE....Morality.

I believe seperation of powers, checks & balances assign this OverSight function to the Senate, so they become duty-bound by their oath of office to proceed, to simply respect, carry out and honor the law. Besides are they not 'elected' public servants?... and right now almost 2/3rds of America believe the country was misled, deceived, manipulated and spooked with a calculated slick PR campaign to embroil the US into death and destruction, a fiasco and a wrong, the public wants no part of. We say this government is not serving or respecting the People's wishes, and CALLS to demand and an about-face correction should begin to be set in motion !...forthrightly.

*arguments, actions, 'positions' a result and concern for narrow self or factional interests? OR a responsibilty to act out of a need to be concerned for the broad National Interest, what is just? and best for the 'whole' ?

When will we proceed with the creation of the Better World?

Don't Fear the Reaper

Why did the Administration wait until September to make its case against Iraq? White House chief of staff Andrew Card told The New York Times last week, ``From a marketing point of view, you don't introduce new products in August.'' Andrew CARD ~

SO,...let's investigate certain salient evidence and developments plus just plain recorded, cavalier off-the-cuff statements documented in Big Media & the Blogosphere, for example...,what State Department official Richard Haass called at the time, "a war of choice." Let's see if the facts found and delineated below are sufficient to proceed ?....

As Frank Rich pointed out in his excellent article, The White House
Stages It's "Daily Show", the Gannon case is the latest in a string
of attempts on the part of this administration to create a Fantasy
World in this country by becoming the media and orchestrating the
information the public sees, hears, reads and eventually believes.

* (CjC rant)= With Abu Gharib, Gitmo ethos prevalent & lurking, the shameful
media is acting much like an agressive interrogater, enforcer- foisting a fraudulent, ShamReality + sham election onto the MassPsyche, and to caring, FreeThinkers & justified Vote Defenders, akin to Psychological torture. THIS indocrination, chicanery, ridicule is obvious and THE ULTIMATE fear
and hopeless-based trauma

News org's spreading thought-viruses violate the BirthRight
freedom- Cognitive Liberty and the sovereignity of individuals
freedom to think independently,
fairly, honestly as sentient agents SEEKING the promotion of The
Good. Personally, I could give a hoot if the media doesn't care
about their own credibility or respect Words=Conduits of Spirit, I know where to find solid
information-but they are disturbing and stunting, brainwashing those who don't
have time or strength to discover different solutions that shine
light on hidden, nefarious motives, in effect selling short the Human Race, preventing
wisdom, growth and Delaying the Rennaissance!

Nevertheless, Intuition, word-of-mouth and heart-based gnosis IS very powerful
and contagioUS and shall overcome, their adavantage of mass-produced reality bytes courtesy of Monopolies aggresively overwhelming dominance and destruction of
sacred Nature- in all it's forms and favoring profit OVER people,
machine OVER man, subterfuge OVER SunShine transparency- truly archaic modus-operandi for a successful species.)

This Republican Media Complex, of which JG is a small part, has so
dominated the national conversation, so controlled the agenda, so
intimated the press that, here in America, we are now living in a
reality that exists only in the minds of the policy makers. And
here's the crime. Those policy makers are ignoring the people
equation in their Fantasy World. To be sure, this is a world
crafted for profits and corporate power.

So why is Bush's trip a testament to the power of the Republican
Media Complex? You can see it when you watch the Europeans shake
their heads in disbelief. They can't understand why we have
allowed this to happen.

It seems America is living in one reality and the rest of the world
is dwelling in another. The reason for this disconnect is very
clear. They haven't been the target of the Republican Media
Complex message.*

237 Bush Lies
About Iraq on the Record
Presented by Rep. Henry A. Waxman

On March 19, 2003, U.S. forces began military operations in Iraq. Addressing the nation about the purpose of the war on the day the bombing began, President Bush stated: "The people of the United States and our friends and allies will not live at the mercy of an outlaw regime that threatens the peace with weapons of mass murder." Two years later, many doubts have been raised regarding the Administration's assertions about the threat posed by Iraq.

Prepared at the direction of Rep. Henry A. Waxman, Iraq on the Record is a searchable collection of 237 specific misleading statements made by Bush Administration officials about the threat posed by Iraq. It contains statements that were misleading based on what was known to the Administration at the time the statements were made. It does not include statements that appear mistaken only in hindsight. If a statement was an accurate reflection of U.S. intelligence at the time it was made, it was excluded even if it now appears erroneous. For more information on how the statements were selected, see the full methodology. The Iraq on the Record Report is a comprehensive examination of these statements.

Iraq on the Record is searchable by the the five Administration officials most responsible for providing public information and shaping public opinion on Iraq:
President George W. Bush

Vice President Dick Cheney

Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld

Then-Secretary of State Colin Powell

Then-National Security Advisor Condoleezza Rice

It is also searchable by issue area:
Iraq's Nuclear Capabilities
Chemical and Biological Weapons
Iraq and Al-Qaeda
Iraq as an Urgent Threat

It is also searchable by keyword, such as "mushroom cloud", "uranium", or "bin Laden."

"New Video: Military Families Speak Out !"

The care of human life and happiness, and not their destruction, is the first and only object of good government… The mass of mankind has not been born with saddles on their backs, nor a favored few to ride them.
– Thomas Jefferson
Where justice is denied, where poverty is enforced, where ignorance prevails, and where any one class is made to feel that society is an organized conspiracy to oppress, rob and degrade them, neither persons nor property will be safe.
– Frederick Douglass
We are not afraid to entrust the American people with unpleasant facts, foreign ideas, alien philosophies, and competitive values. For a nation that is afraid to let its people judge the truth and falsehood in an open market is a nation that is afraid of its people …The wave of the future is not the conquest of the world by a single dogmatic creed but the liberation of the diverse energies of free nations and free men. … Mankind must put an end to war or war will put an end to mankind.
--John F.Kennedy
The government is merely a servant -- merely a temporary servant; it cannot be its prerogative to determine what is right and what is wrong, and decide who is a patriot and who isn't. Its function is to obey orders, not originate them.
– Mark Twain

Harry S. Truman: If you cannot convince them, confuse them.
Propaganda does not deceive people; it merely
helps them to deceive themselves. Eric Hoffer
He that would make his own liberty secure must guard even his enemy from oppression; for if he violates this duty he establishes a precedent that will reach to himself. Thomas Paine
Nothing is more despicable than respect based on fear. Albert Camus
The struggle is always between the individual and his sacred right to express himself and...the power structure that seeks conformity, suppression and obedience. Justice William O. Dougalas
The purpose of government is to reign in the rights of the people.-Bill Clinton
We can't be so fixated on our desire to preserve the rights of ordinary Americans...Bill Clinton
Thomas Szasz said: The battle for the world is the battle for definitions.
Kahlil Gibran said:
Some who are too scrupulous to steal your possessions nevertheless see no wrong in tampering with your thoughts.
Aldous Huxley
Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you mad.
Aldous Huxley
The propagandist's purpose is to make one set of people forget that certain other sets of people are human.
The State...has had a vested interest in promoting attitudes that would tend to make us skeptical of our own abilities, fearful of the motives of others, and emotionally dependent upon external authorities for purpose and direction in our lives.
Butler D. Shaffer

America is a broken promise, and we are called to do what we can to fix it - to get America back on the track. St. Augustine shows us how: "One loving soul sets another on fire." But to move beyond sentimentality, what begins in love must lead on to justice. We are called to the fight of our lives.

Bill Moyers, Aug 2004
