Some heart-warming brainwashing

Posted By on Mon, Jul 23, 2007 at 12:45 AM

Between deadlines and doctor visits, I haven't written much in the past week. Sorry. All I can say is, I'll try to do better in the future.

On the other hand, I wrote some pretty good articles.

Which brings me to a rather heart-warming story that I feel compelled to share with everyone.

Saturday morning, as I was writing a book review, I happened to be listening to a Christian(a far-right Christian) radio station, that was featuring a play for young people.

It seems that a good man, a godly man, was running for mayor of a small town, but this liberal - boo, hiss! - was running against him. You could tell he was a liberal because he mouthed all the usual cliches, in a perpetual whine. Even I wanted to reach inside the radio and smack him along side the head.

But our good man was ahead in the polls. What were the Forces of Darkness to do?

Well, before you can say, "Cut and Run," the Environmental Detection Agency was making the charge that pesticide residue from his apple orchards was poisoning the fair town.


Our hero suffers falling popularity numbers, and folks refuse to buy his apples. Luckily,  two heroes discover that those dastardly agents of the EDA are planting the evidence.

The truth is revealed, and our good, godly man is elected mayor.

I wept as I typed.

Now, that's entertainment! I especially love the Environmental Detection Agency; it sounds so sinister.

Warp the minds when they're young, that's the ticket. You gotta wonder how many kids actually pay attention to nonsense like this by choice?


Those intrigued by all things Wal-Mart may be interested in an interview I did with Joshua Thompson, of Againstthewal, a Wal-mart watchdog group, which will run on Fayetteville's Community Access Television this week. Dates and times are:

Monday - 7pm

Tuesday - noon

Saturday - 6pm

It's good to keep an eye on the evil empire, and folks like Joshua Thompson do a great job of it.

Can your city council people give you a good reason why your town doesn't have public access television?
