Maintaining the status quo

News of the dayLooks like the chips are going to start falling again!
Is it just me or does 624 million not seem like that much when you
consider what the CF is asked to do?
Are they soon going to have to do more with even less?
What is it going to take for the Canadian public to wake up and support
the most honourable, hard working people in the country?
I‘m inches away from making my own placards and lawn signs tearing a
strip out of the media for demoralising the Canadian Forces, and the
country in general, for no good reason. Am I the only one that sees the
media as the primary culprit in this travesty of ignorant public
opinion? Probably not.
This has to stop and I for one am tired of feeling helpless in the face
of sharp pencilled jack asses who have no real insight with regard to
the Forces and their difficult and dangerous job. Do we have an option?
Is there any way to counter the media?
I know I‘m ranting here but this pisses me off and I‘m soooo tired of
being apathetic with regard to the media. But, short of bitching on this
list, I‘m not sure what any of us can do to turn back this tide of
misrepresentation, irresponsible journalism and spin artistry.
To me the ignorance of the typical Canadian journalist is akin to the
career teacher who told me "it‘s a rough world out there!".....having
never actually been "out there" or away from educational institutions to
know anything about the "real world" other than what they read.
Are we becoming a society of over educated idiots whose only opinions
are those espoused by our current newspaper? It can happen. It seems it
may have already.
Sorry but stamping my feet just wasn‘t working.........I feel much
better now.
