Not Just Oregon/Umpqua

Every political person running for office is jumping on the bandwagon looking for someone to blame for the violence and mass shootings. And of course their statements are as outlandish as saying that the flooding in South Carolina is because they rehung the Confederate Flag at the capital.

No one is willing to take responsibility for the false statements made by government agencies, senators, representatives, advertising, manufacturing, law enforcement, religious leaders and everyone else who has access to the public media.

The people are tired of being betrayed by all the lies, like HAL, the computer in the movie 2001, the people are revolting. The betrayal is so widespread there is difficulty for some to address any particular individual.

The chaos caused by false statements is a whiplash effect, a fierce rapid explosion of anger and rage.

There is no one to trust, nothing to put faith in, no leader to follow. The president misspeaks with a smile on his face, a democratic candidate running for president repeatedly claims innocence for wrongdoing with breaches of national security.

Corporations in every industry manufacture shoddy products that do not live up to their advertising claims, nor give value for the dollars spent.

The do not call list for privacy in the home does not apply to political parties, or charities, just because you do not want to be disturbed is no reason for them not to call you to beg for your support and money.

There is a 'news' channel on cable that claims to be fair and balanced while being skewed to the right and easy to judge any actions done by the left as detrimental to the American People, while lauding the efforts of the right wing religious community.

A Republican who is running for President demeans women, insults opponents and brags about all the jobs he has created, stating that he never filed for bankruptcy yet is the CEO of three companies which did file. Praising all the money he has made without acknowledging all the creditors who lost money by these defaults. It is not the idea that filing bankruptcy is an evil it is often a fact of doing business, but saying he never filed is an untruth that corrupts the American Language, as they guy who did not have sexual relations with 'that woman'. Depending upon what your definition of IS, is.

There is a cable channel that brags to viewers that there is never any advertising on the channel, while they try to sell you, copies of movies they own, and subscriptions to programming they produce. Is there something  with the definition of Advertising that the dictionary does not cover. Is not selling, advertising.

Some of the Religions are being forceful in their dogma demanding that their laws be applied to all, whether or not they believe or follow those laws. Religion is demanding that Government follow its rules. Christians want their crosses and ten commandments in prominence and Mosques to disappear. Some Religions claim their laws are the real true words from a god they say exists because their founders say it is true. how can they all have the right Religion when the laws they follow are not the same, and they claim there is only one god. If you will notice, all these Religions have been started by men, and they end their prayers(which are entreaties to their gods to show favor upon them, for a baseball game, to games of chance, and sunshine for their annual picnic) and they end their entreaties in praise of men, AMEN, with no mention of AWOMEN. And all these institutions in America receive financial aid in the form of no taxation.

Charities too, can not be left out of this gigantic equation, they beg for money and when they do receive a stipend from some generous individual they repay their kindness by selling the donors information to other charities to bombard the mailboxes to beg for alms.

And the all favorite, "your call is important to us......", if it were so, someone would answer the phone. Option One, you bought the product we sold, too bad for you it does not work. Option two, "someone will be with you shortly..." so while you are holding on have your lunch and dinner, might as well take a nap. Option three, "visit us online for quick answers to common questions..." We made something right away to sell, but we never bothered to have any quality control measures in place because we want to take your money right away and we don't care if it takes us six months or more to give you some satisfaction. By the way, we no longer make any of our products on U.S. soil because we can avoid all the workplace safety laws made in America because we don't care about any third world worker citizens who die in workplace fires or explosions since we buy their products for pennies and sell them to Americans for dollars and we lock in a hefty profit.

But no, it is the fault of females who have abortions that these people decide to kill in frustration and anger, it is not the fault of the man in this meeting, it is her fault because she is showing little interest in human life, and the single female household, cool, for this election they can not play the race card so instead let's play the gender card. Real wages buying power has nothing to do with it. We are returning to the everyone in the household must work for families to survive so we can complain about non parental supervision. And of course big government has no culpability in this either, big brother is taking care of us by making rules and regulations that must have paperwork filed to prove compliance. This consumer driven economy is no longer in existence, it is big Government, and, big Corporations, remember the Tennessee Ernie Ford song, 'Sixteen Tons', Saint Peter don't you call me cause I can't come, I owe my soul to the company store, or is it the Insurance company.

And of course, no of these individuals at any of these institutions are ever held accountable for any wrongdoing, companies get fined for wrong doing and the money goes to the government, the consumer never is reimbursed in these lawsuits, or eminent domain takes from the consumer for the common good of the corporations and government.

Yet it is the shooters fault for this breach of etiquette, the shooter is responsible for some self control, the shooter is crazy, youbetyourlifetheshooteriscrazy, along with a lot of other  citizens who have been betrayed by the lies that are not really lies depending upon your definition of the word, lie.

And like HAL, we are reacting with a burst of violence, like the dams in South Carolina, the bounty of lies is producing a mutiny, and nobody really cares as long as they are not in the flood plane, it is just business as usual.
