The Delecate Balance

It is a delicate balance...

Having a computer with internet access in 2007 is like having one of the greatest toys mankind has ever invented. Yet, a computer can be used for good - for more important things than playing games (whatever games we may play.)

It's all about that delicate balance ... of knowing when to use this as a toy, and when to use this as a tool - for improving and enriching your life, and perhaps even the lives of others.

Fox & the Media...

It's not news to me. Back in 1999 I Stopped watchin the news. I became aware of how negative the news was, and how the news was being used to control the People watching the news.

It's all about energy - we human beings live in a Humungous Energy feild, filled with positive and negative energy and we all feel it. We feel the joys the highs of happiness, the frustration and the lows of sadness. We call it Emotion. Energy in Motion.

And what most of us are completely unaware of is how the media has mastered the art of playing with our emotions. True story - there's a bit in the movie anchorman that most people do Not get. It's Sooo funny to me. After an hour of reporting on who got shot, and what went wrong; they close out with the Squirrel on water ski's.

A meaningless story at the end to sign off on a 'good note' - even though they spent an hour on every bad note they could find. This is not explained in Anchorman the way I just did, they just throw it in there; I've spoken on this here at thaShow before. Anyways, that bit is Soooo funny to me because real newscasts do the same thing.

This video about Fox attacking black america came to me through another board; and I must say that I was not shocked to see it; but I enjoyed how they broke down their tactics because they become evident when watching the Entire clips that the original video was put together from.

In the video with Obama's pastor you'll notice that Sean Hannity never really let's the pastor Speak. When the pastor mentions that they're teachings originated inthe 60's he moves right over that. He makes the comparrison that if you swap out the word black using the word white, that it would be considered racist.

It would be - and with good reason. However Hannity is using a tactic originally created by the KKK - called reverse racism. It's this idea that somehow, black people are capable of being racist.

If we look at the word for what it is, then sure - black people are capable of being racist. However, black people do not have the power to negatively effect white people with their racism, while just the opposite is true for white people who own businesses, who decide what tv show goes on the air or what music video gets in the rotation.

I'll try to stay on track here - reverse racism, was originally launched by the KKK as a counter-tactic to blacks using 'racism' as a way to gain more rights in America. Many of us are unaware of this - because the media does not care to remind any of us about these sorts of things.

The media is playing with us - they are playing with our emotions. And indeed, it's people like Sean Hannity and Bill O'Reily who keep racism alive and well in this country. Do you know where the media came from?

Do a search on google and you may be shocked at what you find.

The Media originated from a group of people in Persia, known as the Medes - a few other names for them include the Magi or the Magik Men - Yes folks, the 3 Magi who went to visit Jesus on his birthday were these very same people from the Medes aka the media.

They are credited as being people for whom we base the word Magic - defined here in WikiPedia as Magic and sorcery are the influencing of events, objects, people and physical phenomena by mystical, paranormal or supernatural means.

Following along yet? Keep reading ...

Now, let's think for a second about 'what' the media is in todays society. The media is rooted in the word medium. Medium, being the vessel used to deliver it's message. The media therefor is any group that uses mediums that reach people - such as the Internet; Such as Television; Such as the Radio: and such as Newspapers & Magazines.

By far the medium that has the most impact on people in society is Television. The Internet is too spread out; there are too many sources; some believable, some not. People essentially put power and trust into different media outlets; trusting some more, trusting others less. This is how journalism got it's start; effectively winning over people, growing a fan base of readers who would follow them and their stories.

However, once the fan base was built, it became easy to abuse that power - This is today's media abusing it's power at will; although If you've ever seen "Bowling for Columbine" you'll know the media has been abusing it's power for quite some time now.

It's a great movie which speaks to how our media has used FEAR to get people in this society to do what they want done. To enforce racism the media put out 'propaganda' depicting blacks as wild uncontrollable & dangerous animals who Needed slavery to domesticate them. Much effort was put into making white men fear the concept of a black man sleeping with white women - The media went so far as to put out movies, re-inforcing these negative racist views of blacks.

What's funny is how so many people have been led, by the media, to believe that none of that still goes on today.

It was the media that gave us such images as the sambo, the uncle tom, the lazy ignorant nigger - I'm using that word for a reason - it was the Media who initially took ideas within American Culture and spread them to everyone within reach... of a newspaper, magazine, or television.

Not much has changed.

Today when the media puts out a movie about black people, it depicts black people as wild uncontrollable animals, whom white people should fear. You dont see movies about black Super Heroes, unless it's a Spoof by Robert Townsend. I guess there's Blade... but, he's a Vampire, who's actually quite animalistic in nature - fangs and all. Then there was Spawn, who was released onto earth as the leader of the Devils Army.

Some black super heroe's...

Rarely do you see black people in Space movies, or movies about the future; as if they dont expect blacks to be around then. No, by and large the majority of movies about black people involve violence, and ignorance.

Same goes for what the media puts on it's music stations. Wholesome black acts get some airplay, but not as much as the most ignorant black acts they can find. Why does 3-6 Mafia have their own reality tv show? A show which depicts 2 slow, country bumpkin assistants who cant seem to do anything right, who dont take care of any business whatsoever - and who's lead acts can't seem to focus on getting their business taken care of in a timely manner.

Why is there no reality show on Kanye West, Lupe Fiasco, Roots, or Common???

The reality is, this is not who the media wants YOU to identify black people with. Which brings me back to the videos.

Is there still a need for churches that cater to mostly black congregations to support the development of black people in America?? I would look around at the problems black people are still facing, and would say loudly YES! There is a need.

So why is this effort being attacked, and called out as Racist by Fox??

Simple; They want to enrage white people. They want white people to vote for some other candidate than Obama; They want white people to view him the same way they view other 'racist' black people who 'get away with' racism towards white people, but are allowed to practice it openly...

It becomes such a messy issue quickly; because that Program reaches MILLIONS of people and utterly brainwashes them before any logic can get to them; Those people already trust the station and it's programs, and have an emotional bond. Emotions move them so strongly during the show that they're ready to believe whatever they're fed by it.

By the time I come along to say "hey, that's not the WHOLE truth" - it's too late!!!

The media does this with everything; You and I MUST unplug! It's ok to watch these things, but we must take back our TRUST in these stories.

Dont think for a second that FOX is the only channel attacking blacks - nearly every channel is... and has been, for quite some time. The media is always attacking something... it's constantly working to create a society full of FEARFUL people.

Look at the terrorist alert - constantly keeping people afraid of terrorism. Look at the flip flopping on foods; One week corn is great for you, 2 weeks later corn will kill you faster than a speeding bullet. Disasters get emergency coverage - whatever you're watching cannot be as important as watching people suffer in the aftermath of Katrina. (which the media took as another opportunity to attack black people, by calling them refugee's - while referring to whites as displaced americans.)

All of this has been covered at ThaShow - and if you will gain Historical Perspective, understand who and where the media comes from, you will begin to see what I've been warning you all about.

You Must unplugg! - The system is not rigged for your happiness; Living in America is not about giving YOU freedom to attain happiness; only pursue it - to chase after it - and all while you are on your journey, the media interrupts - with BillBoards that catch your attention while you're driving - cell phones which constantly ring, contstantly distract us, and why do we have them? Because the media was telling us how important they are to have!

Next thing you know they'll be fearmongering us about our cell phones, telling us they'll cause brain tumors...

Oh, they've done that already? And yet, cell phone usage has grown!

The media is a very, very powerful player - I put up a joke the other day from a guy talking about the recent news (media) attacks on MySpace - saying that it's crawling with pedophiles; Now people are afraid of the internet.

People have been made to fear the internet for a while now actually - when people first started using the net to meet others, the media put out reports of how dangerous that could be. Like a viral video word spread - to where most women would assume that every man on the net is a potential serial killer or rapist.

Therefore, the very idea of meeting a man from the net became dangerous, stupid, and just not worth the risk; Because he could turn out to be a rapist... or a serial killer.

Nevermind the reality - that most people are killed, and/or raped by someone they already know. Nevermind the reality that rapist and serial killers came way before the internet.

It's not logical to say that there's no chance a rapist would use the net to find victims, or a pedophile would do the same; But it's equally not logical to say the % is higher, that it's happening on here - when there are literally no facts issued to back that up.

But do people demmand facts? No, because we've already given our Trust to the media. Our parents trusted them, so we trust them too - blindly, no questions asked.

So when Fox attacks Black America, the average white person watching it does not feel that they are being led, or influenced to think a certain way about black people, and black issues - instead it never crosses their mind; They believe whole heartedly that these black people are just getting away with murder ... like always ... like OJ.

Don't let the media control you.

Fox Attacks Black America.

Great discussion taking place here; This video was brought to my attention and I want to share it, along with related videos. It starts with clips from Fox news, showing how they have continually blasted and attacked Black America.


Fox Attacks: Black America

Myron Golden, responds

FOX News Fave Accuses Obama and Oprah Of Being A Racist

Hannity Argues With Obama's Pastor

Hannity Erupts Into Frenzy Of Bigoted Anger

Interesting stuff right? So I ask you, IS Fox attacking black America?

Is the media, using it's power to spread racism towards black people, to it's viewers? Chime in.

The truth - what's really happening online.

I want to start out with a good comic bit by a guy, making fun of the news' fearmongering when it comes to making parents afraid of the social networking giant, MySpace.

... a funny way to address and approach a very real situation. The question remains, "is this really a threat?" ...A discussion is taking place in our country right now about this very thing. Because our society is now facing a new, bold era - where criminals are being 'created' - harmless men lured into doing what they otherwise wouldn't... for ratings, and more profits.

Meanwhile, the real dangers and threats in our society are walking free - The family member who's molesting their young, the neighborhood rapist who's stalking kids walking home from school - no efforts are being made to prevent them from inflicting harm.

We're being asked to fear a threat that does not exsist. And yet so many are so hyped up by it, so trusting of the source that delivers the threat warnings, that they do not stop to think if they are following the right leads. Much is being said and I think it's worth a read - a very good discussion indeed.

GIGO & the POWER of suggestion.

I dont know if I've talked about the GIGO Principle here - Garbage In, Garbage Out - it's about how the things we watch, read, and listen to effect us.

Most would argue that these things have no effect whatsoever; but those people are arguing from an emotional standpoint; Not from an informed, Logical one.

Many of the battles that have gone on in the past 20 years in this country, on moral issues, such as too much Sex on TV - too much Violence; are real debates that we've been propaganda'd into Not paying much attention to.

We shrugg our shoulders, wave our hands, and say ahh, that's bull - what a person see's does not make them think a certain way, react or respond a certain way; It's ultimately up to that individual.

While that may be true, the individuals choices can indeed be influenced by others; By other 'stimuli' - and that's precisely what Too much Sex on TV, or Too much Violence does. It influences individuals' choices.

It changes the way an individual percieves a choice.

Here's a great example of what I'm talking about (from the same guy on YouTube who had the Ted Koppel clip.)

Information Hell : Ted Koppel thaProphet.

Attention, Attention, Attention ... I got that from a book I'm reading called the "Attention Economy" - I'm also thumbing through another book called "The Power of Focus" - cant you tell that I've gotta do something to manage My attention span?

Ted Koppel was right! That video must be about 20-25 years old, but We are currently living in the age of which he spoke of. There are Soooo many people who simply do not listen. And it's because they have so much to listen to.

We are living in a time where there are So many who are uninformed; frankly because they do not have time to get informed on what matters; From all the time spent getting informed on things that just do not.

So, what do we do when we're living in a world where distractions have been created for us at record level - where the media, as Ted Koppel admitted years ago, is not discriminating between what's Important, and what's Mundane; How do we cope?

They say that knowledge is power and while I know that it's acting on knowledge that = power, not just having knowledge alone; I hope that having been informed about how Information is being shoveled at you is negatively effecting you, that you will be able to raise your sheilds, and screen more of it out.

Often I find myself having to fight to get back to things I "should have" been doing. SO many desires are out there - things I'd "like to do" - many are fleeting emotions; Whims that hit me and leave 10 minutes later, leaving me with regret for falling into them.

Now is the time for attention! - and as I work hard to improve mine, to focus and channel it on the things that matter - I'd like to also encourage others to join me in this challenge - to overcome the gluttony of information hell.

I just signed up for this...

And you should too.

As I've mentioned here at thaShow, I'm a veteran of the internet; Been using it for over 12 years now; and I can truly say beyond a shadow of a doubt that you WILL Make money by signing up for Agloco - AND using their product(software).

Getting Paid to Surf the web.

This is not a new concept by any means. I signed up with 2 of the first ever p2s products to hit the web; and I got paid.

I didn't make BIG money - because I didn't have a BIG team; and that's what making the big money is all about.

The opportunity is there.

Today, you can join - and refer this site to all of your friends. If only 5 sign up and do the same as you - you're looking at a potential to earn money when Other people surf the web.

You and I refer people to things all the time - shouldn't we get paid?

Agloco is a ground breaking opportunity and right now you can start assembling your Team of Referrals; They're yet to release their 'viewbar' - but when they do people who got in early, people who built a team of referrals, are going to start making money Right Away.

I know this sounds like a sales pitch - because that's exactly what It is. However I only sell from the heart, and from experience - and I'm telling you this is a Big Opportunity - It's legit - and you WILL make money.

How much you make however, will be up to you.

Why people don't make money

The reason people dont make money with "opportunities" like this one is, they hear about it, read about it, then don't do Anything with it. They say to themselves.. "hmm that's interesting" - then they go play Bejeweled on Yahoo Games. They could've had a viewbar running, getting paid while they played that game - but they've already put it out of their mind.

Others sign up - then 'forget' to turn on the viewbar when they sign onto the internet. Evenstill others sign up, use the viewbar, but put no effort whatsoever into telling their friends to use it too. They get discouraged when the friends they Do tell are not interested.

All of these are easily avoidable reasons - but reasons nonetheless for why people Don't make money in these kinds of "opportunities"

The Good News is ...

If you can avoid doing that - if you can Not be discouraged by people saying they're not interested, if you can remember to use the viewbar when you log onto the internet, if you can Remember to tell others and keep telling others, and tell others to tell others - if you can be patient, and dilligent - You can make LOTS of money.

Who's in? Sign up today.

Goodbye Lakers... Hello Hate Crimes

Two of the top stories on my mind this evening, are the Los Angeles Lakers, who's season ended last night, after just 5 games against the two-time defending MVP Steve Nash, and his phoenix Suns. The other story was on my Netscape homepage - news that congress has passed a bill to 'finally' do something about Hate Crimes.

I give good sports talk, so I'm going to spend some time during this Laker Off season to make a case for ME to get the job of General Manager for the Lakers. My favorite team ever.

The lakers are a storied franchise; they've won the Most games of any team in the NBA - ever. The most championships for a franchise with a total of 13 - and have had a history of bringing on THE best players in the game for that era: Like Jerry West & Elgin Baylor, Magic Johnson & Kareem Abdul Jabar, and most recently, Kobe Bryant & Shaquille Oneal.

We all know the story - Shaq and Kobe didn't get along - Shaq went to Miami and won a ring last year & was swept This Year, while Kobe hasn't gotten out of the first round since Shaq departed & missed the playoffs all together the first year that he left.

People who hate the lakers, people who hate Kobe, quickly point the finger at him as the Reason for the laker struggles. In one word, my response is - Nonsense.

Any TRUE basketball fan, understands the difference between a GOod player playing on a team With Talented players, and a Great player playing on a team with Not-So-Talented Players.

The fault is Squarly on the shoulders of Mitch Cupcheck - and possibly even the Buss family for not firing this clueless animal - Maybe even some can go to Phil for not making remarks about the lack of talent in the front office - then again why jeapordize a job making $10 mill per year?

With that, I've officially laid out the beginnings of my case, and will continue to build on it here at ThaShow - as I show you evidence of just how the lakers GM is ruining a franchise, with terrible front-office decision making.

And for an even more important story, check out the news on the Hate Crime Bill - recently passed.

It's about time - however I wonder if this bill will be used more to Prosecute people who Say bad things about gays, as opposed to white's who make racist hate filled remarks about blacks; I wonder if it will be used to punish blacks for 'reverse-racism' ... instead of whites for 'initial-racism'.

Time will tell - I like you, will/should get more informed on what exactly is going on with this here. I'll come back to you soon with more of my findings.
