In a nation where half of the schools teach creationism as a viable alternative to science, we start out from a base of indoctrinated ignorance.  Add to that a media which feeds us a steady diet of reality TV, always focusing on the latest exaggerated sensationalism; and we end up with an uninformed, and uncaring citizenship.

You turn on any news program and all you will see is the latest scandal of Trump or the latest scandal of Hillary, with a side note on the death and destruction from an earthquake in Italy. 

Our nation is under threat, but not from ISIS.    No one is paying attention. 


North Korea is a nuclear nation run by an egotistic dictator.   They have detonated two nuclear bombs in the past two years.  They have been test firing mid-range missiles, and this week launched a mid-range missile from a submarine into the Sea of Japan.   

Their leader Kim Jong-il, son of a man who never defecated and could walk on water – along with other miracles, has recently made the statement that he intends to bomb South Korea with a nuclear weapon.

North Korea claims to have miniaturized a nuclear weapon

Why aren’t we covering this story as our top concern?   I hate to be a conspiracy theorist, but are we being purposely distracted by our own government with the threat of ISIS, in order to downplay the real threat of North Korea?   Are we being purposely kept uninformed by the government, while the press raves on about the latest sensational un-newsworthy story?

Why isn’t North Korea the lead news story; and why are we so complacent in our ignorance?

Have a good day

  1. Personally, I got thuthin. If you'll notice the news channels and newspapers and magazines are owned by one or two people out there. They are limited by what the owner wants or says can be broadcasted or printed.

  2. I suspect the new America is corporate owned. Do the owners need an educated & thinking populace?

  3. I've always said I was more afraid of him then ISIS

  4. Korea, Japan and maybe even America. Between Kim and Putin, we have a couple of real nutbars with red buttons to push
