Spying seems to be widely accepted today. Invasion of privacy? doesn't seem to exist. Unless this is a contrived plot for publicity, with the tacit approval of the subjects, I think it's in very bad taste. and probably tastes bad. Why has SLUTTISHNESS become fashionable? Where will it end, with private tapes of Paris, snorting coke and stuffing herself with vibrators, available all over the web. SODOM OR GOMMORAH? OR BOTH?

I was the one that forced isabellah and Jesus Claus to put a disclaimer on that shit wiki site they have.
Now I'll complain to blogger about this vulgar pic and see if I can get the Rattler shut down.

Hmmmmmm you are quite the pussy yourself Anon-Y-Mouse. I find the picture less vulgar, common and objectionable than a shit stirring snitch like you with nothing more constructive to do but run around in circles tattling on everyone else..... jeeze do you really feel so inferior to other people that you need to act this way to feel powerful. You are a Joke .......hehehehehe

Well frisson aren't you the hypocrite
Wasn't it YOU that whined, tattled, and snitched about anonymous posters on this blog? Wasn't it YOU that tried to stir the shit and get rid of the anonymous commentors?
You look pretty damn stupid after that last comment. What a fucking dumbass you are frisson. Even the stupid are laughing at you. The lice that live in your slimey, engorged pussy are even laughing at you, The dust from your dead womb is stinking up the entire blog.

Well, well Ono, you claim it's in bad taste, yet you chose to post the picture. Until now, I have not seen the full picture, only blocked out versions by media who thought the act itself was in bad taste, but you think its important enough to put it out there for all to see. You dont think its bad taste. I guess there are Australian hypocrites,(you) just like the American democrat liberals.

I am not impressed by the Britster's snatch. I have seen better pussy in a veterinarian's office.

I would call it a beaver, but I do not see the tail that usually accompanies it.

At best, it looks like a classic roadkill cooze. IT has that ran over and used more times then one can count look.

I went back and read the original post. The comment about her stuffing herself with vibrators is a visual I would not mind seeing, but do they make one big enough for that muff?

I really have to agree with Anonymous Poster on this one.

"Unless this is a contrived plot for publicity, with the tacit approval of the subjects, I think it's in very bad taste." Oh really? You thought it was in such bad taste and you have such bad taste that you decided it needed an even wider audience and the best way to deal with this type of vulgarity was to promote it even more? What a hypocrite.

And by the way, isa, what's up with the "comprendes" and si's lately? Are you taking an online night course in Spanish, usted pedazo vulgar, grosero, inculto e ignorante de mierda? Ah, y yo me olvidé de mencionar que usted no es muy brillante cualquiera. Usted entiende eso, sí?

ummmm.. disculpe, no entiendo

Everytime I read one of Isafuckingcunts comments where she pats libs on the back and buddies up to them like she's a long time friend I have to laugh...

"Hardy har har...those pathetic neocons and their behavior...those people are sad!"

"Cool, Isabellah...I'm a liberal tree hugger too! Didn't you just about die when Gore lost the election in 2000?"

"Ummmm, well actually, you see, ummm...I voted for Bush...But I saw the light!"

"I understand, everyone makes mistakes....So I'm sorry that your intro to our fine party was the John Kerry loss."

"Um, well, you see, I voted for Bush against Kerry too..."

"So when did you become a democrat?"

"Well, this is the party where chunky bitches with huge pasty thighs can become cool! I became a die-hard lib the second I found out that it was easier to bitch and moan than actually do something."

"You are going to make a fine lib!"

Just a bit of a conversation I'm sure the most annoying slag on the planet has had many times.

jesus claus said...

Well actually isabellah did say this ...

"Oh please Jesus, if you cyberfuck me I'll even turn liberal. Look at me, love me. Watch me as I blow dry the long luxurious hair under my arms."

IsabellaSays said...

lol you people tickle me lol
jay, settle down.. gawd lol

FRisson1 said...

Anon-Y-Mouse I talked to the owner of the blog. I didn't run to Paltalk, Blogger or wikispaces like a little snitch trying to get a Blog shut down. Someone showing their snatch is a lot less offensive to me than someone trying to commit a character assassination by trying to convince people that someone is a pedophile. I hope I am never so full of hate and jealousy for a person to do something that low ..... but go right ahead with you quest Anon-Y- Mouse if that kind of thing gets you off.

The "you're a pedophile" thing was one of Claus' very favorite things to pull on me a couple of years ago...It's not a new thing, actually, it's usually the writers of this blog at the front of the line when it comes to being really serious assholes.

Why do you think people relish in ripping them new ones so much?

FRisson1 said...

Well jay I don't think I have called you anything worse than a neonut. You are one of the few right wingers who sign their name to their post. I respect you for that. I don't care what anyone calls me on the blogs. Cyberspace has no creditability and I have developed very thick skin, since I know the true person that I am

And Onono you certainly have LMFAO

Anonymous said...

Yes you certainly have think skin Frisson. Years of boils, dandruff, and corns will do that. What you need is a good leather whip lashing after I gag you. Perhaps some nipple clamps would help also. Maybe I'll invite isabellah and her new bull nigger over so he can use you like he does her.

Lab Monkey Experiment Part. 2

Through the month of January, I purposely posted messages behind those anonymouses that were insulting people. To make them sound apologetic and to associate them with perversions that they might secretly possess for the contributors of The Rattler.

The purpose of this experiment at first was to make these anonymouses sound very stupid and to shame them, but, then, I noticed they did not comment as much. Attacking their phobias was one of the plans of attack. So, I felt this was a great way to keep them from insulting posters. At last, I stayed away for a few days, because I have a job and a life. To keep up with those that are obviously lacking in morality or intelligence would be an endless adventure. What I realised when I did come back after a few days is incredible.

I hear isabellah is a nigger lover. Is it true?
frisson told me that she has a nigger she fucks everytime Rick walks out to go to work. She sucks down that big black cock and swallows his monkey juice. She kisses those giant lips and rubs her tounge along those blue gums. He smacks her ass until it's red, then grabs her by her floppy arm and gives her the ole slave fuck. He lies on top of her and drips his stinky sweat all down upon her saggy tits and she takes it like the trailer whore she is. Then they smoke some crack while she chats on Paltalk. Then right before Rick gets home he pisses his nigger piss on her face and she guzzles it down like a diet Mountain Dew. By the time Rick gets home, she smells like a Martin Luther King rally in the middle of July. At least that's what Frisson says

These people felt it was acceptable to not only insult others with comments about their sexual perversions and fantasies, but they accepted this as a way to think they are attacking those that contribute to this blog. It makes me wonder how far people will go if they are associated with a "clique" of people? Do they feel it is normal to post such comments because one of their fellow anonymouses posted such vile comments? I am not a psychologist by no means whatsoever, just an observer of reactions of those that feel they need to insult and degrade people to make themselves look better. This sort of communication does not make them look superior, but quite the opposite. These posts show people that have a problem with racism, sexuality, and devious personalities. Most of the time I do not think they are aware that they are making themselves seems very sickening...the worse in our society. I also observed new posters on the blog with id's. Do they actually have a conscience and do not want to be afflicated with those deviant anonymouses that have deep psychological problems? Time will tell. Following most of these anonymouses over the year of 2006, we know that most of them are supporters of the Bush administration. Does this mean what every vile and sickening behaviour this administration does, they will follow them? It is a question to be researched and has been researched.

Pavlov on Brainwashing:
The Technology of Thought and Behavior Control

The long evolution of developing procedures to control human behavior all came to a head in the modern world with Pavlov, a Russian scientist. In the early years of the twentieth century, Pavlov made the discovery that you can condition a dog to salivate on command simply by associating food with the ringing of a bell. Once that association is fixed in the dog's mind, the food can be removed and the dog will salivate merely when it hears the bell.
Pavlov carried out the identical experiments on human beings with the same results. Those principles have been adapted to television and motion pictures and can now make Americans salivate in response to a wide array of bells and whistles. We can call it phase one in the evolution of human behavior control.
Phase two was accomplished by the same Russian scientist, Pavlov. Very few people know of this part of his research. During a particularly severe storm in Russia, heavy rains continued for days and Pavlov's laboratories were flooded. Pavlov and his research assistants were able to return to the laboratory only after the flood waters had receded days later. Upon returning, Pavlov discovered something truly remarkable. Before the flood, many of the dogs had been conditioned to respond to various stimuli. Lo and behold, all traces of the conditioning in the dogs had disappeared! Bells, food, nothing could induce the former salivation response that had been so carefully implanted in the dogs' nervous systems.
What mysterious influence could account for this remarkable turn of events, Pavlov wondered. So, being a good scientist, he studied carefully what had transpired while he was away from the dogs. They had been left without food or warmth. They had been isolated for days; some of them had drowned. They had been subjected to extreme stress, never knowing if they would live or die. These were the factors that had produced the washing away of the previous conditioning from the dogs' brains - brain-washing.
Pavlov and other Russians followed up this line of research, but it was the Chinese communists in the 1950s who first saw its real potential for use with human beings. They employed these very principles in brainwashing American and other Allied prisoners of war during the Korean conflict. Isolation, periodic denial of food or water, cold and exposure, extreme stress associated with uncertainty of life or death--these conditions, together with a continual barrage of indoctrination produced the erasing of previous beliefs and behavior patterns in American soldiers in particular. Thus brainwashing became phase two in the evolution of human behavior control.
But brainwashing is not very reliable, as the remarkable film "The Manchurian Candidate" shows. The trigger mechanisms can be tampered with, sometimes even erased, before the desired behavior can be carried out.

These procedures are only used now by the CIA and other intelligence services for programming special assassins (see the movie "Parallax View"). Neither classic Pavlovian conditioning nor brainwashing can produce the general results that black-budget project directors in intelligence services desire: absolute control of a human personality.
To show to what extremes the CIA is willing to go in developing the technology to control human behavior, they funded the "research" of Dr. Jose Delgado. Delgado was infamous for implanting radio-activated electrodes in animals (and possibly in humans).

In the pictures to the left he is demonstrating that his implants in a bull's brain can stop it even after it starts to charge Delgado. photo

You may get a slight whiff of sulphur and brimstone as you read this quote from Delgado:
"We need a program of psychosurgery and political control of our society. The purpose is physical control of the mind. Everyone who deviates from the given norm can be surgically mutilated.
"The individual may think that the most important reality is his own existence, but this is only his personal point of view. This lacks historical perspective.
"Man does not have the right to develop his own mind. This kind of liberal orientation has great appeal. We must electrically control the brain. Some day armies and generals will be controlled by electrical stimulation of the brain."

Dr. Jose Delgado (MKULTRA experimenter who demonstrated a radio-controlled bull on CNN in 1985)
Director of Neuropsychiatry, Yale University Medical School
Congressional Record No. 26, Vol. 118, February 24, 1974

Phase three in the development of thought and behavior control techniques occurred at Stanford University in the 1960s, with a scientist named William Colby. Colby was a Freudian psychiatrist whose work was funded by Department of Defense grants attempting to solve a problem outlined by the DoD: controlling human behavior.

Colby learned how to capture the belief systems of his psychiatric patients. He then put these belief systems into computer programs. He refined his research until he was able to capture a patient's personality structure in the computer and then use this computer model to control the patient's behavior.

B. F. Skinner developed the concept of operant conditioning in which a subject--animal or human--receives reinforcement for desired behavior.

The techniques of Pavlov, Colby, and Skinner have been taken over by political campaign managers, television producers, and advertising executives. Today, the average person is bombarded with conditioning messages throughout each day. We are conditioned to believe, feel, think, and act as other people choose. In study after study, cultural conditioning instruments (TV, popular songs, Web sites, newspapers, magazines) have been shown to elicit specific behaviors on the part of the "receiver. photo

In this article, I'm using the word "brainwashing" in a non-technical sense, to refer to any attempt to influence or coerce another person. All communication has some element of persuasion, even if only to persuade a person to receive and/or consider the communication. So in some sense I'm attempting to "brainwash" the reader of this article as does any communicator. You can distinguish between positive and negative "propaganda" or "brainwashing" by asking these questions:

Does the communication make it clear that it is trying to persuade ("brainwash") the recipient? (reader, viewer, etc.)

If the propaganda is hidden or subliminal (below the ordinary threshold of awareness) then the purpose of the communication is often to control or manipulate the recipient.

If the propaganda overtly acknowledges it is trying to persuade or influence the recipient, and invites reflection on the message, then the purpose may be benign or positive.

Does the communication have the purpose of persuading the recipients to believe or act in ways that are inimical to their own interests?

In the case of the Bush administration's propaganda efforts, I am arguing in this article that persons being "brainwashed" are being encouraged to believe and act in ways that are destructive of their personal interests.

This article encourages readers to reflect on what kind of propaganda ("brainwashing") they are experiencing, which reflection I consider to be of benefit to the readers. I even state that I am using the last several propaganda posters to try to influence the readers to a point of view which I consider to be in their own interest.

"The threat from the Elders of Zion or from Wall Street [or from terrorists or Iraq or American dissidents], together with a revealed knowledge of 'truth' necessitates inquisition and intrusion into every aspect of a subject's life through the agency of the propaganda machine and terrorist police. Propaganda and police are closely interwoven; terror controls communication, which communicates, among other things, terror. Propaganda and terror are, in a very real sense, two sides of one coin. Wrong action springs from wrong thought, or from the wrong nature of a Jew or capitalist [or Muslim extremist or American dissident], and it is most economically dealt with at source. The police must detect wrong thought; propaganda must correct it or the police must eradicate it, whereupon propaganda must replace it. The police terror is the modern inquisition, and must, in the interests of the class or the race, be permitted to see into the soul of every person. Not only does heresy weaken the state in the face of its internal and external enemies, it is not in the true interests of the heretic. Better be burned at the stake than live in mortal sin, which can so easily taint others. . . . A hell on earth must be created to incline the flock to heaven. In the words of Orwell's 1984 hate is love."

Peter Phillips. (1969). The Tragedy of Nazi Germany

Programming Americans to Accept New Views of War and the Military

My time of service at the Army War College also gave me the opportunity to study:
-the varied mind-sets in the military
-the dynamic relationship involved in the civilian control of the military
-brainwashing in the military

When our nation was created, its founders understood that all facets of the government, including the military, are created to serve the needs of the people. The American colonists had fought against a British army which did whatever its corrupt civilian monarch and other leaders told it to do. This is why Samuel Adams made the important distinction between the need for and the danger of a standing army.

"A Standing Army," Adams asserted, "however necessary it may be at some times, is always dangerous to the Liberties of the People."
From the beginning of the establishment of a standing military, military personnel have had one of two primary mind-sets:

Mind-set 1: I will remain loyal to my sworn pledge to uphold the U.S. Constitution, no matter what. If I consider a civilian or military order or operation to be contradictory to the Constitution, I will not follow the order and will do whatever is in my power to stop the unconstitutional operation.

This mind-set is represented by such military leaders as (to name just a few):
Colonel L. Fletcher Prouty (above)

General Frederick Woerner--commander in Panama and replaced by Bush senior when he wouldn't obey an illegal military order to attack Panama

Admiral William Crowe--Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and replaced by Bush senior when he wouldn't obey an illegal military order to attack Panama

the six U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff in the time frame: 5/25/02 (before their arms were twisted by Powell and Bush to fall into line)

Army Vice Chief of Staff Gen. John Keane (above left)

War Is A Racket, by General Smedley Butler, USMC, 1933

Mind-set 2: I will do whatever my civilian and military commanders tell me to do, without reflection on whether or not what they are ordering is permitted by the Constitution (since I want to get ahead in the military). This mind-set is represented by such people as:

Colin Powell, Secretary of State during Bush II's first term and turned out for slight disagreement with the junta's imperialistic plans; Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff during Bush senior's presidency (took over when Admiral William Crowe wouldn't agree to Bush senior's illegal invasion of Panama)

General Norman Schwarzkopf, commander of the Gulf War against Iraq

General Maxwell Thurman, commander of Operation Just Cause, the military attack on Panama (took over from General Frederick Woerner, when Woerner wouldn't agree to Bush senior's illegal invasion of Panama)

the six U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff in the time frame: 8/7/02 (after they'd been coerced into agreement with Bush and Powell)

General Tommy Franks, former U.S. military commander in Afghanistan

US Air Force General Ralph E. Eberhart, head of the newly established Northern Command

"Militarism means a domination of the military man over the civilian, an undue emphasis on military needs, policies, spirit, values and ideals. . .
"Militariness means a readiness to defend one's country's interests by force of arms, the acceptance of the military profession as honourable and necessary. Only a complete pacifist could validly condemn militariness. Others, aware that wars are facts of life, however unpleasant, would agree that every nation has to cultivate some militariness."

-Peter Phillips. The Tragedy of Nazi Germany

Distorted Concepts of War and the Military

On August 22, 2002, the Department of Defense and the National Guard Bureau in Washington, D.C. announced that the Iowa Army National Guard's 1st Battalion, 194th Field Artillery, was being ordered to federal active duty to locations within the United States for homeland security missions as part of Operation Noble Eagle II.

This constitutes an illegal operation on the part of the Bush junta in scrapping the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878. In a nutshell, this act bans the use of the military against American civilians. Dubya's use of military personnel to control and harass the American civilian population (and General Eberehart's and other military leaders' mindless acceptance of this illegal action) is such an outrage that the American people should immediately speak out against it and do everything possible to see that this presidential crime is punished to the full extent of the law.

The use of U.S. military personnel and weapons against American civilians has occurred many times. To cite just two:
-Janet Reno's 1993 use of the Texas National Guard and the army's Joint Task Force Six in attacking, burning, and murdering more than 80 people, including 27 children in Waco, Texas
-the 1972 operation called Operation Garden Plot in which the U.S. military was used for "civil disturbance control"

Since the Korean War, the demonic cabal has been brainwashing the American public into new, distorted concepts of war and the military:

-the military can be used by the president for whatever purposes he chooses:
-for a police action in Korea that the president makes sure the U.S. does not win for a police action in Viet Nam that the president makes sure the U.S. does not win
-for the invasion of Panama to capture Noriega, a criminal who had been hired by Bush senior as a CIA operative and now threatened to reveal Bush's criminal activities in the Iran-Contra and other gun-running, drug-smuggling operations
-for the invasion of Iraq to make a "regime change"
-to repress and control American citizens

"Of all the enemies to public liberty war is, perhaps, the most to be dreaded because it comprises and develops the germ of every other. War is the parent of armies; from these proceed debts and taxes. And armies, and debts, and taxes are the known instruments for bringing the many under the domination of the few. In war, too, the discretionary power of the Executive is extended. Its influence in dealing out offices, honors, and emoluments is multiplied; and all the means of seducing the minds, are added to those of subduing the force of the people. The same malignant aspect in republicanism may be traced in the inequality of fortunes, and the opportunities of fraud, growing out of a state of war . . . and in the degeneracy of manners and morals, engendered by both. No nation could preserve its freedom in the midst of continual warfare."

James Madison, April 20, 1795

The Demonic Cabal Propaganda Machine

A number of rabid right organizations provide the Bush junta propaganda support:
Project for the New American Century
Center for Security Policy
American Enterprise Institute
Americans for Victory Over Terrorism - (Bennett, Kemp)
World Anti-Communist League (Singlaub)
Any informed American is aware that the demonic cabal carries on its efforts to turn America into a full-fledged dictatorship through a number of organizations. A partial list would include:

Council on Foreign Relations
Trilateral Commission
Bilderberg Group
Carlyle Group
World Bank

International Monetary Fund

The Council on Foreign Relations is the demonic cabal's mandarin stable, where sycophants write articles and chair meetings to discuss what policies and strategies the current puppet government must follow. A recent Council On Foreign Relations Task Force report ordered the Bush Administration to upgrade public diplomacy because too many people in the world, especially Arabs, don't like Americans.
Yowsuh! the Bush puppet gang replied, and went into immediate action, creating a new Office of Global Communications (OGC) to coordinate the administration's foreign policy message and huckster America's image globally. The OGC supplants a smaller propaganda group set up during the war in Afghanistan, when the Bush junta feared that the US was losing the public relations battle even though winning the war.

The U.S. government has had a propaganda arm since 1942, centered in the US International Broadcasting Bureau (IBB). IBB broadcasts in 52 languages around the world and includes:
the Voice of America
the Office of Cuba Broadcasting
the Worldnet Television and Film Service
a new service, the Middle East Radio Network (MERN)

MERN's Radio Sawa, which began broadcasting overseas on March 23, 2002, is an interesting mix of pop music, news, opinion pieces, weather, and sports, targeting the 25 and under demographic group. Radio Sawa (which means "together" in Arabic), funded by our tax dollars, is the brainchild of California media mogul, Norman Pattiz, US Broadcasting Board Governor and Founder/Chairman of Westwood One Radio. Funding for Radio Sawa was championed by Sen. Joseph Biden, D-Del., a friend of Pattiz, and $35 million was approved for fiscal 2002, with more than $16 million of those dollars going to build new transmitters, a one-time cost.
The umbrella group running this propaganda operation is the Broadcasting Board of Governors (BBG), an agency of the U.S. Government. Radio Sawa is a service of U.S. International Broadcasting, an arm of BBG. Radio Sawa operates on the assumption that communicating directly in Arabic with the peoples of the Middle East by radio will win their attention and respect.

Pattiz, a wealthy contributor to former President Clinton, describes the Radio Sawa mission as follows: "We are committed to making sure people can hear America's voice and better understand our country and what it stands for."

Programming includes talk-radio shows where people can call in and ask questions about the United States, its government and its people. As well as being available via Nilesat, Arabsat, and Eutelsat, Radio Sawa broadcasts 24 hours a day, 7 days a week on FM frequencies throughout the Middle East.

Fortunately, a large number of people in the Arabic world are not taken in by the Bush regime's clumsy effort to brainwash youth in the Middle East, as this article in the Al-Ahram Weekly Online Web site indicates.

"What's wrong with propaganda?" asks Ayman El-Amir in the article just referred to. "Nothing, except if you claim that it is not what it appears to be. Almost all countries practice propaganda in one form or another, depending on the policy agenda and the region of interest."
"The United States has consistently been a good exporter of its short-term myopic interests, and a bad promoter of the ideals of the value system on which it was founded. That may explain why outside Europe, the US of the post-World War II era found itself more in the bad company of ruthless dictators, rather than in the good company of democratically elected leaders."

"The chances are the Arab youth themselves will split the strategy: take the US sound and discard the US agenda."

Bush's Fake Economic Forum

As this article is being written (August, 2002), Dubya is trying to brainwash the American people into thinking that the economy is okay, that only a few "bad-apple" CEOs of corporations have crossed the line of criminal behavior, and that no new legislation is necessary to stop runaway corporate crime that his administration has encouraged.

Fortunately, a considerable number of Americans, including even some of the usually supine press, are seeing through this propaganda swindle. An August 13, 2002 MSNBC opinion piece by William Saletan brands the effort "Bush’s Fake Forum."

"This afternoon at the President’s Economic Forum in Waco, Texas, President Bush and Vice President Cheney sat side by side on the stage of a packed auditorium for more than an hour. That’s the first time they've been that close together for that long in public since Sept. 11. Evidently they're no longer afraid of terrorists. What they're afraid of is Americans."

An August 14, 2003 Washington Post editorial called the "forum" a confidence game.

"The theme of those reports was that the country needs lower taxes, that most corporate executives are honest and that the solution to corporate scandals is less, not more, regulation.
"Recession and the cost of war and the cost of homeland defense have increased our deficits," Mr. Bush said yesterday. At his forum, there was no one to remind him that tax cuts are playing their part too. In the real world, they're part of the arithmetic."

Frank Rich's 8/17/02 Op/Ed, "The Waco Road to Baghdad" caught even more of the brainwashing aspect of the fake forum.

"Though the president's harshest critics think he's stupid, I've always maintained that the real problem is that he thinks we are stupid. He never doubts that his show will distract us from bad news. Waco was supposed to make us forget the latest round of economic headlines: stagnant wages, slowed growth, new all-time records in personal bankruptcies and consumer borrowing."
The fake forum was seen in its true colors when the Bushites had to admit that the participants were coached in what to say. Their attempt to call the coaching material "talking points" just didn't cut it.

Paradoxical Psychological Manipulation
A powerful strategy of clandestine brainwashing is to send a communication with two, paradoxical messages.

For example, the movie series, The Godfather, contained these two contradictory messages:

-mafia crime families are just like ordinary people
-a mafia criminal will kill his own family if necessary; don't think he would hesitate to kill you if ordered to
- Even intelligent people can be taken in by this brainwashing technology of paradoxical messaging. An example of this phenomenon is a current operation by the Advertising Council.

In June of 2003, the Ad Council was stating its overall purpose in this way: "We marshall [sic] the volunteer forces of advertising agencies and media companies to affect [sic] positive social change." As of December, 2003, they have corrected their statement to read: "We marshal the volunteer forces of advertising agencies and media companies to effect positive social change." You can, in the example below, interpret "effect positive change" to mean "brainwash people into fearful submission. ad campaigns

One of the Council's current operations is called the "Campaign for Freedom." If you believe the Council,

"The initiative is designed to assist Americans during the war on terrorism through the development and distribution of timely and relevant public service messages. This first round of PSAs for the campaign has been created to celebrate our nation's freedom and remind Americans about the importance of freedom and the need to protect it for future generations."
"According to research, Americans are looking for messages that will inform, involve and inspire them during the war on terrorism. This inspirational campaign is advertising's gift to America on the occasion of its birthday, Independence Day." All of the ads conclude with the powerful tagline, "Freedom. Appreciate it. Cherish it. Protect it."

The first of six video clip "messages" involves the image of an American urban block, with the voiceover:

"On September eleventh, terrorists tried to change America forever."
The image changes to the same urban street but this time with American flags hanging in front of every house.

"Well, they succeeded."

Now, that seems rather prosaic, doesn't it? The message is: "We showed those terrorists what we're made of!" Nothing to quarrel with, is there?
Well, maybe. Note the critical element of the image/message: EVERY house has a flag in front of it.
So the paradoxical message is: America is changed forever to a 200 percent patriotism that can see no wrong with whatever the Bush administration does.
I recommend you examine all six Ad Council "messages" to see the paradoxical communications in each.

Main Street USA We showed those 9/11 terrorists what we're made of. /America's been permanently changed into a country of 200 percent jingoistic patriotism.

Arrest Aren't you glad you live in a country where you can't be pulled over by a police officer, your car searched, and your being arrested on nothing more than suspicion./ You actually live in a country where you can be pulled over by a police officer, your car searched, and your being arrested on nothing more than suspicion.

"The average person in the US watches about four hours of television each day. Over the course of a year, we see roughly twenty five thousand commercials, many of them produced by the world's highest-paid cognitive psychologists. And these heavily produced advertisements are not merely for products, but for a lifestyle based on a consumer mind-set. What they're doing, day in and day out, twenty-five thousand times a year, is hypnotizing us into seeing ourselves as consumers who want to be entertained rather than as citizens who want to be informed and engaged. We need to take back the airwaves as a sphere of mature conversation and dialogue about our common future."

You were being facetious, right? lolol.
I'm astounded at the reaction to a split beaver... talk about off topic comments! Britney is a BAAAAD role model. Coke is expensive, and gash flash is not attractive unless you are INVOLVED at the time. What are we teaching our children?
