Ignoring the Truth: Pollyanna Americans Prefer to Ignore What's Happening Before their very Eyes

This writer succinctly describes some of the reasons we have the mess we have right now. In our current state of Infotainment-Idiocracy, most prefer banal distractions to facing reality, which might involve actually having to get off their fat asses and do something about it. It's easier to bury one's head in the comfortable cocoon of ignorance and conformity. Or to get riled up over beer and burgers about non-issues that aren't even remotely the problem.

When We Ignore the Truth
 Jon Larsen, OpEd News

It really is sad. There are so many Americans who follow the "Pollyanna Program".
It's upsetting that these "enlightened" folks think that they're doing such a fine job of being good citizens by supporting everything Obama does. Obama has chosen "Secrecy and War" as his signature mode of operation. We should recognize that secrecy is incompatible with democracy. Obama has not chosen democracy.

Republicans and middle-of-the-road Democrats are helping the fascists who are killing Democracy. Obama recently "officially" gave Monsanto, the most hated corporation in the world, free reign to do whatever they want to do without any control by the courts or by any government agencies.

Obama can murder anyone he wants to anywhere in the world and the U.S. electorate cheers.

Obama and Boehner conspire to strip us of our post offices, Social Security, and healthcare. Requiring 75 years of retirement benefits to be paid ahead for, as yet, unborn post office employees was the clever thing for the corporation-purchased Congress to do to pave the way for privatization. So what if there is a 2.7-trillion-dollar debt owed to Social Security by Congress? Healthcare is also on the chopping block out of sheer meanness, it seems, as the greedy insurance companies were already guaranteed millions of new and profitable accounts instead of the U.S. government providing the insurance and the administration for the program to make it more affordable for everyone.

The banks are still doing whatever they want to do, all too big to be jailed.  Attorney General Eric Holder says he can't charge them with crimes. Goldman Sachs, aka the Federal Reserve, continues to print all the money they want to.

Obama wants to go to war against North Korea and Iran. Obama has Wars of Aggression in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and covert actions against democratically elected governments world-wide to preserve fascism in the U.S. government and the world.

Should-be-recognized hero whistle-blower Bradley Manning is despised by most of the U.S. electorate because of the cooperation of "corporate government" and the "corporate news" while he deserves to be considered for a Nobel Peace Prize. Obama served as President for 27 days and received the Nobel Peace Prize..... a bribe? Manning chose to expose the ugliness of the U.S. government for its illegal, immoral, and really stupid acts. Julian Assange remains in danger. Obama wants him punished....... for his patriotism to the people and his dedication to truth and democracy.

The oceans are dying and the air is polluted.
We are rapidly losing all of our civil rights.

While all this is happening we, the bored, distracted, easily led "Sheeple" of the U.S., worry about what the "corporate news"; FOX, ABC, NBC, CBS, and CNN, et.al., and the "corporate government"; Goldman Sachs, Monsanto, Halliburton, and Exxon-Mobil, et.al. WANT us to be concerned about..... gay marriage, abortion, gun-control reform, and "scary" illegal immigrants (created by Monsanto and NAFTA) that want to take our gardening jobs away and to steal our bibles.
