Indeed, many, if not the majority of these stories tell quite a different story than the one you hear nightly on the local 6PM newsline. Most are indeed American stories - and a very few of the links below are even ORIGINAL in nature - meaning originated here on Barf Stew. `Finding `TimeTravlers' In Photos' for example.
So, let's see if this `year end best of' list stirs your memories - ready? No, not a top 10 list - a near chronological list of the barf you have had to endure in just the past calendar year:
First up - how much have you heard about that `border fence issue' lately? Not much? Could the reason be that on January 3rd - Barf Stew featured a video of two girls scrambling over the fence in literally seconds? - Yet the MSM lets the BS candidates ramble on about border security. When, playing the publicly available video would shut them up in seconds. And, could any of the border issues of drugs and money involve the US Banking System? Seems so, you mean the BILLIONS go somewhere? (How stupid does the MSM think we all are?) On the 13th day of 11 BS covered how the people within the government use their own Stats To Coverup The Fact We Are In A Depression. Makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside right? Makes you want to stand in line to vote for a republinut or democrap in 2012, right?
Think that manipulating stats or that the major banks are knowingly laundering drug money or that the country has no real border security despite the windbag politicians saying elsewise is a BIG Deal? The BS hasn't even started folks - get the barf bag out of the seatback in front of you and be ready to do some projectile vomiting about the crap of 2011.
Because, hellbent on the `no government is too big' scenario continued to be played out on the 18th day of 11 as the TSA thinks Patdowns Of Three Year Olds Keep Us `Safer'. And the beginnings of the 1% rebellion can be seen here on just the 26th day of 11 with The Fact Of One Trillion Dollars Of The Economy Go To Top 1%. Can they really spend it that quick? A year. Each and Every Year? ------------ Then, the calendar turned the page to February, and BS was one of the few covering the lack of Security in Scratch Off Lottery Tickets and how tracking the lottery winner figures indicates that some folks have figured out how to scam the system (of course) - you will never look at scratch off tickets the same after this read. For some reason, the MSM doesn't seem much interested in these stories -- oh, that's right, TV stations and newspapers get lots of ad money from state budgets for the lottery systems.
But, perhaps the best ex-politician BS answer of the Year, went to Donald Rumsfeld who said these words in answer to a question - What Is :Building 7? -- Hey, it's the same guy who on Sept. 10th, 2001 admitted to the Defense Department not being able to put their hands on a couple Trillion from the so-called budget. BUT, why would the MSM bother with ever reminding us about that? Right? And, as Barfsters know - a billion here and a billion there and it starts to add up - as a couple DOZEN hedgefund managers Earn That Much Every Year - in public companies. Jobs that literally could be done by a computer for zilch. But, why would the MSM be interested in something as mundane as that, right? Oh, that's right - they advertise on networks.
So, in April, when this survey revealed that the MAJORITY of Americans wouldn't pay ONE DOLLAR to have their `congressman be of the party of their choice' - meaning, of course, that the people are beyond disgust with the `two parties' - which have obviously outlived their usefulness - and need to BOTH BE REPLACED; -- why would the media be interested in something like that?
Oh, that's right - the MSM has to pretend that the politicians matter - after all the MSM depends on those advertising dollars from the `political parties'. Replacing the outdated political parties makes sense to everyone, except, to those collecting those ad bucks. And, they wonder why folks look at the MSM as being as worthless as the politicians they cover? Unbelievable.
But, in addition to not being willing to pay a dollar to have their preferred party in power, Americans also started to `strike back' at the system in 2011 - such as at the worthless failed `Drug War' of the politicians and supported by the MSM. (Remember the money connections above.) - Indeed, in this spring story citizens organized Sending URINE To the Government in protest to easily beatable yet easy to give false positives too Drug Testing Programs.
Just another way for the government to say that YOU do not own your body. And, that adults can't make decisions as to what drugs to put into their body unless they are approved and part of the Health Care System (one of the biggest lobbies in WashingtonDC). Perhaps the OWS movement is best symbolized by these Florida Piss protesters in 2011?
You are probably pretty queasy by now I assume - but - the barf is still only lukewarm.
Another of the MSM favorite `dismissals' is of the southern states - still somehow associated and portrayed in the MSM's eyes as backward and segregated - --- after all - the power needs to stay in the Washington-Boston corridor, right? So, when the US Census data shows that the MOST segregated communities in America are In The Northern States - as it has been FOR DECADES NOW - isn't it funny about the Black Kettle? Now, the funny thing about this is that MOST folks KNOW that what the MSM says about the south is ..... well..... bullshit. That is, everyone but the on-the-take MSM of the politician dollars.
But, when you have a president whose Social security number is traced to a dead man it might be hard to muster up faith in the system - don't you think? A MSM starting to catch up slowly with the reality of Young Women And Young Men having NO income differences as a group. In a system that lets Federal Agents Swarm Homes Do To Unsecured Wi-Fi Connections? With a MSM that runs the other way when Obama's `Long Form' Birth Certificate Seemed Phoney? - and it wasn't even a long form? A MSM that doesn't seem to care that his stories and `facts', normal to most folks, don't even add up? (The BS theory is that it is so that a `President' can be easily removed if desired by TPTB.)
And, with the police crashing into homes on Pot Raids, shooting miniature dogs, and people, --- is it any surprise to anyone, but for the MSM, that the People are more scared of cops than criminals? --- Are these talking heads that read the `produced news' on TV even HUMAN? How can they read the stuff with straight faces? Indeed, to Today's B.S. - the zenith of the Glamorization of SWAT teams came in 2011 with the ATT (big brother of course) `Hey Marcel' Ads -- is it only TBS that thinks this is total crappola?
Now, if it makes you feel any better - estimates are that 1/5th of the Russian `Defense' Budget Is Stolen Yearly - yet the applause is highest for those `looking to be stronger'! Could that be why 1/2 Of Americans Think The Economy Will NEVER Recover - is that what happens when the system wipes out Trillions while paying Billions to those who helped it collapse? And the MSM looks on? Being a mouthpiece for the Obama Recovery?
Make sure that barf bag has been opened and is on your lap - please. Barf Stew will NOT be responsible for any mishaps beyond this point.
A Fed so strong that they issued a No Fly Zone Threat To Texas - IF They Ignored TSA requirements? - Is that the kind of country the MSM is interested in representing? As Barfsters know, BS predicts that Texas and other states joining Texas - will pull out of the USA at some point before the collapse. A media that stands down while Texas is threatened by the Feds - but says little to nothing of getting oil from a country that has Pubic Beheadings On Fridays to keep its citizens inline and intow.
Do you feel like a Sheep yet? Or, perhaps a little piglet?
A society run by worthless politicians, covered by a worthless, bought MSM, in which computer experts testify that the now paperless elections are run by Software designed to make the vote 51-49 under oath. Why should the MSM be interested in lottery OR voting security, right?
Funny who RUNS both (the lottery and voting) - probably a co-incidence, right? But, no one believes the MSM - after all - to them the housing market bottomed years ago, when the Obama Recovery began - so, housing experts who say that the housing market won't recover for 20 Years - Due To The Fraud - who cares, right? Being a mouthpiece for government is much more important obviously. Not surprising that half of America thinks the USA is Headed For A Depression, right?
And, you know the MSM has given up on any semblence of reporting about `Justice In America' - when the Forclosure Fraud mess - of which not one important person is in jail for - when NEW YORKERS in foreclosure may have up to 60 Years To Live In Their Homes Without Paying do to the paperwork backup and the laws on eviction. Does it seem fair to you to pay one more cent to fraudsters? In a land where CEO's of Of Three Billion Dollar Frauds get the same sentence as Someone Lying On A Food Stamp Application? The MSM has an incredible blind eye and short memory on such matters, right?
Yes, sticking a finger in your throat to quicken the outcome may be desired at this point.
And, it's perhaps of all the above that Google Predicts A USA Crash - a BarfStew original finding. But, as mentioned before - some folks are striking back - and - even using SARCASM and the MSM Too to fight back at the evolving police state. What a brave guy in that video, right? Indeed, folks are SO CYNICAL in 2011 that even GOD had a 52% `Approval Rating' - but, is that surprising in the environment BS describes above about 2011?
A world in which a NEW non-government MONEY is getting off the ground perhaps in the form of BITCOIN? Which is certainly needed when to evade laws 2,000 corporations have the same address - at a common home - in Wyoming? And a world where Rick Santelli calls Social Security A Ponzi Scheme? As everyone but the MSM knows it is? A world where hackers used social media in September to report a Fake Terrorist Attack In NYC?
And, who can blame the HUGE surge on Credit Union Accounts Being Opened (not reported directly by the press) - when you have a system that didn't jail or even FIRE ONE Person Associated With The Bernie Maddoff Ponzi Game? - Hey some folks at the SEC who had been hearing of the ponzi scheme had their pay cut and some were suspended for ONE MONTH. - You can't make this crap up. Justice in America.
What does one do with a full bag of puke, right?
But, 2011 wasn't all fun and games and cat and mouse between the MSM and the citizens of the country. And, not all Barfable Stew in 2011 was about a corrupt system or people acting out in horrible manners - some of it fit the whole concept of Barf Stew in different ways. Such as these NON American sources:
A few events also warranted the Barf Stew coverage that were from the anomalous category:
And finally - some is simply hilarious!
