Thinking harder and getting it
Feb. 10, 2008
Paul Wesslund of
Kentucky Living magazine
tells us about his false efforts to be ‘fair’ to all concerned while
‘reporting’ on the issue of so-called ‘global warming.’ “You have to think
harder to get it right,” he wrote.
If that's the hardest you can think Paul maybe the Kentucky
Association of Electric Cooperatives needs to look for another editor. Let’s
try thinking about these things:
When I was a kid I bought a book titled
‘The Population Bomb.” Essentially it said we’d all be starved to death
way before now. Now the average Wal Mart super center has a grocery section
5 times larger than the Houchens we shopped in back then.
The populations of all the western countries
are on the decline, while the third world, not exposed to our
propaganda, continues to reproduce as if they can always depend on us to
While in college in the 80s I read a book that told me we’d be out
of oil before my life was half over. Now a tiny minority of experts are
telling us that not only are we not running out of oil but that instead of
it being left over dinosaurs and swamp waste the
earth generates it constantly as a natural process.
In the early 1990s the mainstream news media ramped up their
promotion of gun control. When we tried to get concealed carry laws passed
in the states we were told it would create a ‘wild west’ atmosphere. It
didn’t happen, at least not because of CCW. Now nearly all states have
‘shall issue’ CCW.
The mainstream news media is still promoting gun control. But
politicians know they dare not mention it, or work toward it to any great
degree because so many of us know they lie, about not just that issue, but
In the 70s or so they were telling us the next ice age is coming
soon. Now global warming is their latest excuse for controlling every aspect
of our lives.
All this was mainstream propaganda. But at the time I was too young
to know better than to watch and read mainstream news as if what they were
reporting really mattered or had any particle of reality to it. So don’t be
surprised when I don’t believe them when they tell me I have to surrender
control over every aspect of
my life and property
to ‘save the earth’ or ‘save the children.'
When I see the environmental groups spending millions on TV
commercials and newspaper and magazine ads and propaganda campaigns I know
they’re not ‘grass roots’ organizations.
In fact they receive millions from the corporations they allegedly
Nature Conservancy controls billions in assets while buying and selling
land, often to developers.
Who’s really profiting from all these constant lies?
Who’s really profiting from the trade in carbon credits? It won’t be the
average customer, or ‘member’ of the
rural electric cooperative.
And who’s really telling the reporters what to report? Why do they
make careers out of lying to us, and of course supporting left-wing(communist,
Wesslund wrote that a Kentucky Living survey revealed only 10
percent of their readers think as I do. That’s not surprising. Through human
history it’s always a tiny minority that really attempts to understand the
world around them and makes any real difference for the future.
At one time the majority thought the earth was flat because that’s
what they’d been taught all their lives. Now scientists know and most accept
that it’s been more or less round since its beginning and that climate
change has been going on since there’s been a climate.
Adolf Hitler said if you repeat a lie often enough the people will
believe it. He also said it’s a good thing for rulers that people do not
think. So why am I supposed to be impressed with any survey results?
How many of the people that Kentucky Living is mailed to get any
other kind of publication in their household except their local newspapers,
most of which do not cover anything in any real depth? How many of
Wesslund’s readers blindly watch the television news as if it can be
Only people who get their news from the many alternative news sites
on the internet have any real idea what’s happening around them. It’s a
simple fact of human nature that most of the rest have no clue and most
don’t want one.
Only 3-7 percent of the colonies’ population fought in the American
Revolution. The rest were content to bow down to their king. There are a
tiny percentage of us today who are paying attention, and we’re sick of
being lied to, and of being expected to remain silent while our relatives,
neighbors and fellow Americans are being intentionally deceived.
Wesslund, your solution is obviously not education, it’s more
propaganda. You asked “What’s a magazine editor to do?”
How about telling the truth for once and not parroting the
collectivist propaganda from the mainstream news media and so-called
environmental groups? That would be a miraculous start.
