During an appearance on This Week, Ryan argued that President Obama “proposed the […]/p

Big surprise, we know.

From Media Matters.

Laura doesn't remember.

Maybe that’s how they survive? They have no memory past the moment they are in.


Information Overload ~ Truth in Advertising

Posted: October 24th, 2012 | Author: | Filed under: Democratic, Hypocrisy, Republican | Tags: , , , , , , , , | No Comments »

I was going to write a post about truth in advertising. So I Googled, “truth in advertising”. Then I got hit with an overwhelming need to procrastinate.

What prompted the idea to begin with? This post from a friend on Facebook.

What comes up first is this.

More of course, but you get the idea. Interesting that the first link, the paid link is somehow from a church.

Okay, next. I scroll to the bottom and decide to click “truth in advertising law”. That seems more like what I wanted. But the first thing that comes up, a paid search is from Ask.com. Ok, personal opinion, I am never satisfied with anything that I have clicked via Ask.com. This place is full of millions of questions and no answers. At least when I click it.

Okay, so I’m going to click it and see what it delivers.

Maybe this is why there is so much crap reported and spewed by the media, main stream, liberal, conservative or comedic. It’s all crap! It’s all crap because it fits into the personal agenda of each and every network, station or hack show that has been given air time.

How IN the WORLD are we to ever know actual facts when one side makes it up and the other side plays both sides of the story. Unfortunately, many issues have 5 sides. And every issue is not black or white.

Take Benghazi for example. Do people really expect to know now, even more than a month after the fact to know any facts about what happened? How it happened? Or what anyone knew about it? Granted my cousin Ronnie was just a normal guy, but he was shot and killed in Kansas City in about 1983. His murder is still unsolved. That was nearly thirty years ago.

Take this, for example. Romney said it himself when he said he had five sons and just because they say something a bunch of times does not make it fact.

LET’S WAKE UP PEOPLE!!!!!

Why does this infuriate me so? Maybe I read too much. Maybe I should read less. Maybe I should read one paper. Listen to ONE network for my news. No, I can’t do that! Why? Because no one in the media right, left, up or down reports the news with any interest in facts. They report it to promote their personal agenda, beliefs and opinions regardless of the facts.

SLOW DOWN PEOPLE!!!!!

The other day we saw this;

Do you take the word of one person as truth? I can’t. If you believe in Glenn Beck or Sean Hannity or Jon Stewart or Rachel Maddow or Laura Ingram or Diane Sawyer or Brian Williams. Why? Why do you put your belief in one person, one point of view? Even a complicated Google search can result in over a million results. My advice, do some Googling!

So, truth in advertising. Truth in advertising under the Federal Trade Commission Act, must be truthful and non-deceptive. Advertising must have evidence to back up their claims. Advertisements cannot be unfair. And who regulates this? Apparently, NO ONE! Not even the FTC, otherwise there would be NO advertising. It’s out of hand and too big to even attempt to reel in and test for truth.

In my opinion this happens for many reasons. One being who has time or the resources check all of these ads? There’s your job creation! The FTC can’t even keep up with just plain every day ads for sunscreen or miracle pills. Number 2, is probably personal agendas.

Some of you are angry. Some of you are pissed! But for the WRONG reasons. From every opportunity of anyone attempting to get what they want, they are not telling the truth about what they believe, what they know or what is truth, period. They want something and have a drive and ambition to acquire it at all cost.

No Jon Stewart is not news. But why is it that shows like his show actual footage and tape of the contradictions in politics.

A few results from page one of Google search, Obama contradictions and Romney contradictions. As you read through these, if you do. Please consider the source and consider what they provide for evidence to back up their claim. Is it just what they believe or do they have audio, video or verified written documentation that backs up their claim?

Obama
Romney
Obama
Romney
Obama
Romney
Obama
Romney
Obama
Romney

Anyone attempting to get what they want, may not tell the truth about what they believe, what they know, or what is truth. They want something and have an agenda and ambition to acquire it at all cost.

So much for truth in advertising.


Health Care

Scott Browns Beneficial Repeal

“…yesterday, this Tea Party champion and great opponent of Obamacare admitted something astonishing: his 23 year old daughter is one of the 2.5 million young Americans who are benefiting from a regulation that allows young people to stay on their parents’ health care plan until age 26:

Of course I do,’’ the Massachusetts Republican told the Globe. Brown is insuring his daughter Ayla, a professional singer who is 23 years old, under a widely popular provision of the law requiring that family plans cover children up to age 26.

Brown said the extended use of his congressional coverage is not inconsistent with his criticism of the federal law, enacted over his objection after he won a special election in 2010, because the same coverage could be required by individual states.”

Where Is the Fourth Estate When You Need Them?

“Newt Gingrich has done this the best. He has claimed in debates and interviews that while serving as Speaker of the House, his leadership helped create 11 million new jobs, which ultimately led to the economic boom of the 1990s. He always leaves out one very important fact, however. The economic boom of the 90s would not have been possible without President Clinton. Clinton pushed for the passage of the 1993 Deficit Reduction Act, which proposed increasing taxes on the wealthiest income earners, cutting programs that weren’t working, taxing corporations at 35%, and extending the earned income tax credit. Gingrich vehemently opposed the bill and he and every one of his Republican colleagues voted against it. The deadlock was broken by then Vice President Al Gore and the bill was signed into law by President Clinton. Three years later, the economy was surging, and by the end of Clinton’s second term, when Gingrich was forced out of office by his own party, the Administration recorded a net budget surplus. It was the first time the US budget had been balanced since 1968. Given these historical facts, how does any pundit or media outlet allow Gingrich to get away with taking credit for something he worked so hard to destroy?’
