Orwell meant to show what could happen-his book was a warning to humanity. These people are making sure that it does happen; and it is, as we all very well know.

Thinking AND the use of common sense cannot be taught but are encouraged by the parents and teachers who we are exposed to in growing up. Obviously, the parents don't do their job and push their kids onto others to be raised. Teachers don't do their job because they bow to the government. So, where is the encouragement? Also the media is only a marketeer! Marketeers prefer people unable to use these two human qualities.

Extremely great point! And any listening done is selective listening.

Good goin, John! May I also add that the fuel tax schemes that are used will not support ongoing "improvements", anyway. As vehicles get better gas mileage, less and less revenue is realized-most of us realize this, but the bureaucratic mind cannot think this way.
With all of their "intelligence", the liberal masses don't want or need common sense. Today, I found this quote that rings so true with them: "If the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch" - The Bible. And since their thrust is toward atheism, I'm sure they will never read or accept such a little piece of advice.

My Message to Girls: Be Bossy!

Such poor advice to both girls and boys from the liberal establishment! Thanks, Michelle for taking a stand against this. I try to give advice to my grandkids that I believe would encourage them, overall. Starting with "Be yoursel!f". Is it any wonder that we tend to have a bunch of spoiled brats with advice about "bossy" and "bully". Hopefully, the children learn that life is just not about words and symbols.
Senor, if you did not get a gun during "Fast and Furious", please let me give you my weapon, por favor!
The media doesn't even know the makeup of the country of Ukraine. How do you expect them to remember treaties?
A point well taken!
As I say to my daughter and grandchildren, "I extremely detest extremists!" I have always said that the gist of the article existed and was growing by leaps and bounds; especially since the young are totally less willing to listen to anyone that that might be a little older and wiser(ala the '60's). George Orwell has been turning in his grave and should be totally worn down, by now. I'm sure Allan Bloom's book was never read by any of these "underprivileged", spoiled, misfits that spew the hate of their Liberalism.
