Michael Jackson - Conflicting Media
Image by caribb Scary thought but it seems my youth has come to an end this afternoon. I went for a walk for an hour and came back to find Farah Fawcett dead and Michael Jackson hospitalized from cardiac arrest. Two of the biggest pop icons ever at or nearing their death. In a weird cyber irony Twitter (BNO News & TMZ) are reporting him dead (5:42 pm)... CNN now old school news still has him only hospitalized but in bad shape. I hope CNN is right.. Hang in there Michael. Rest in Peace Farah, at least you are free from your ailing body and in a better place. We all loved you. ..Latest reports from more traditional sources say Jackson is in a coma. Not good news but better. ...6:31: CNN just reported Michael Jackson dies.. so sorry to hear this :-( It took TV 45 minutes to confirm and break the story.. seems Twitter really is more instant when the news is reported correctly. Still that's irrelevant, it's a sad day. In some ways the music has died today.

Image by Saint Iscariot Bradley Manning Support Network -> www.bradleymanning.org/ The Bradley Manning Torture Accountability Project -> bradleymanningtorture.com/ âI have to abide by certain classified information,â Obama said on a video that quickly began to circulate among media outlets Friday. âIf I was to release stuff, information that Iâm not authorized to release, Iâm breaking the law. â¦ Weâre a nation of laws. We donât individually make our own decisions about how the laws operate. â¦ He broke the law.â Compare that statement of President Obama with Presidential Candidate Obama from Change.gov: "Such acts of courage and patriotism, which can sometimes save lives and often save taxpayer dollars, should be encouraged rather than stifled. We need to empower federal employees as watchdogs of wrongdoing and partners in performance. Barack Obama will strengthen whistleblower laws to protect federal workers who expose waste, fraud, and abuse of authority in government. Obama will ensure that federal agencies expedite the process for reviewing whistleblower claims and whistleblowers have full access to courts and due process." ============================================= This is how politicians operate; they protect themselves and degrade those who strive after protecting the citizenry. George W. Bush and Dick Cheney are war criminals by the standard of law, but both are offered the cover of government. Why? This is how governed societies operate; the system self-protects and the citizens self-correct. Until the people strive after education on a substantive level apart from the latest celebrity gossip or political spin, this will be the cycle of American life. Striving after education is a course towards improving the inward person. We can make all the improvements to every notion deemed civilized, but until people begin to address their own internal frictions and outward fictions, civilization will continue to escape the civilized. ============================================= âWith any legitimate trial of whistleblower Bradley Manning still being at an unspecified date in the future, it would seem that what is presently on trial here is Western culture itself. When the persecution of an individual who has exposed an evil is pursued so ruthlessly and yet the evil itself is studiedly ignored, all of us know that there is something very wrong with the way that our society is conducting itself. And if we do not protest in the strongest terms about what is being done in our name, then we become complicit. There is no third option. Bradley Manning and others like him everywhere are vital to our continued moral health and well-being as a people, and unless we offer them our full support in their often dire and isolated circumstances, it is we, as a people, who will end up the losers.â -Alan Moore www.bradleymanning.org/news/releases/alan-moore-bradley-m... "The US has shown remarkable energy in its pursuit of alleged whistleblowers. Has it investigated the deaths of those innocent civilians with the same vigour? With any vigour whatsoever? And which would you consider a crime? To conceal the deaths of innocent civilians, or to reveal them? I know what my answer would be." -Les Barker www.mrsackroyd.com/ "If Bradley Manning did what heâs accused of, then heâs a hero if mine and I think he did a great service to this country. Weâre not in the mess weâre in, in the world, because of too many leaks. . . . I say there should be some secrets. But I also say we invaded Iraq illegally because of a lackof a Bradley Manning at that time." -Daniel Ellsberg www.ellsberg.net/archive/daniel-ellsberg-on-colbert-report âIt is a privilege to join the campaign to support Bradley Manning for his courage and integrity in serving his country by helping make the government accountable to its citizens, and to inform the world of what its people should know." -Noam Chomsky www.bradleymanning.org/learn-more/supporters "To suggest that lives were put in danger by the release of the WikiLeaks documents is the most cynical of statements...Lives were put in danger the night we invaded the sovereign nation of Iraq, an act that had nothing to do with what the Bradley Mannings of this country signed up for: to defend our people from attack. It was a war based on a complete lie and lives were not only put in danger, hundreds of thousands of them were exterminated...For those who organised this massacre to point a finger at Bradley Manning is the ultimate example of Orwellian hypocrisy." -Michael Moore www.guardian.co.uk/world/2010/sep/15/bradley-manning-camp... At 23, Private Manning is the worldâs pre-eminent prisoner of conscience, having remained true to the Nuremberg Principle that every soldier has the right to "a moral choice." His suffering mocks the notion of the land of the free." -John Pilger original.antiwar.com/pilger/2011/01/14/the-war-on-wikileaks/ "If Bradley Manning was the person who copied the secret US diplomatic cables to WikilLeaks, he is a hero for exposing human rights abuses" -Peter Tatchell twitter.com/#!/PeterTatchell/status/15842478221434880 "I was Bradley Manning." -Daniel Ellsberg ============================================= 1.
