|Its kinda interesting to me that you can see clearly from Australia but 50% of the folks here are blind to all this.|
I remember some years back, whilst talking to an ex-pat Aussie living in Missouri, that the level and standard of news coverage in the US is very different to that in Australia. I was aware of things happening over there that she had never heard of in the news...it simply wasn't broadcast. Mind you this was back in 98-99 so things may be a bit different now. I don't believe that many of the people have a clue what is really happening because they are not told...or only told what the system wants them to know.
I am a reasonably observant guy, and I am also quite perceptive, so I do tend to see some things that others may miss. I also have a tendency to say it like it is, speak my mind and call a spade a spade (and I ain't necessarily talking about our darker skinned brethren), so no doubt there is more than one filing cabinet in the US holding a file with my name inside.
