PROLOGUE

 

TABACCO: My function and goal is NOT to do all your thinking for you; it is to revive those abilities you have ceded to Television Talking Heads and recapture the ability we all have of THINKING FOR OURSELVES!

 

Even folks we trust can manipulate, deceive and falsely promote certain actions or they can be just plain wrong themselves. I don’t believe Carter and Clinton were Evil, but I do believe they were ignorant of the full import of NAFTA. You’ve all heard that adage about “the blind leading the blind”.

 

Do NOT blindly trust Lawyers, Doctors, Clergy, Family, Friends and certainly NOT Politicians without doing research on your own about the advice given to you – even by those you trust!

 

If you cannot ALWAYS trust Doctors, Lawyers & Clergy, why would you risk your reputation and possible wrong decision-making by assuming the infallibility of Family and Friends! Those sources may be guilty of nothing more than BAD REPORTING – and we all know how likely that is!

 

To authenticate my own opinions is why I “Appeal To Authority” myself when I blog. However, both you and I must trust Tabacco’s wisdom in selecting the authorities that know what they are talking about and don’t have subliminal and/or “hidden” vested interests in how you view a particular subject. Sometimes I even have to impugn my own Sources!

 

Liberal and Progressive sources are generally much more reliable than Conservative and Reactionary sources, which makes my job a lot easier than Rush Limbaugh’s. However, Rush is not interesting in information and truth; Rush’s focus is on misinformation and untruth! That’s why it is so hard for Rush and his ilk to supply rationale, reputable facts and figures to support their claims. And that is why Tabacco does that all the time – I “appeal to authority” to demonstrate that these Facts I present, which you may never have heard before, do NOT emanate from my backside the way they come out of Rush Limbaugh’s buttocks!

 

Of course, because of recent history and a lifetime of experience, I am predisposed to NOT TRUST any Republican on any matter whatsoever because they are either Propagandists/Sophists themselves or are under the Influence of Propagandists/Sophists. When I find myself siding with Conservatives or Republicans, I reevaluate my position to see if I missed something important, relevant and opaque.

 

I have deliberately not researched NYS’s Proposition 1 before writing this Post. It is not important at this time for me to do your work for you. I will do the research after I publish. If you live in NYS and plan to vote on Tuesday, November 5, 2013, I suggest you also do the research on Proposition 1 for yourself. To start on this New Adventure, there is no time like the present!

 

But I do thank the Telemarketers for bringing Proposition 1 to my attention!

 

Although I admit it is a rare occurrence, even Tabacco has been known to err – and those errors are often monumental!

 

Having said that, I am proud to say that once I become aware of an error on my part, I am not too proud to admit my mistake – in print if applicable. I wonder if Carter and Clinton have ever done that re NAFTA!

 

 

 

EXAMPLES

 

Around 1993, early in the Clinton years, Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton made a TV infomercial extolling the virtues of NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement). Because these were 2-Democratic Presidents, I swallowed the propaganda hook-line-and sinker! I vowed then to never be so GULLIBLE ever again!

 

When Corporate & Wealthy Individuals on the other side began donating so heavily to Obama’s campaign run in 2008, I could smell a rat before the fact. Rich folk are capable of all sorts of things, but not cutting their own Capitalistic throats on purpose.

 

I knew then that my President, Barack Obama, could not be trusted in every matter – particularly when there is a way for Obama to profit financially just as Bush did by initiating and perpetuating WARS FOR PROFIT!

 

Corporatists’ biggest Faux Pas was making Theodore Roosevelt the U.S. VP to neutralize the man. That was a miscalculation because John D. Rockefeller, Andrew Carnegie and J. Pierpont Morgan had no way of knowing President McKinley would be assassinated in 1901 when they formed a Conspiracy and bought the 1896 and 1900 Presidential Elections, thrusting the ‘Trustbuster’ into the Presidency.

 

Liberal Sources such as MoveOn.org are e-mailing me on a regular basis to support the “Dream Act”. However, I have resisted the impulse unless and until I know there is no requirement for Hispanics and other Illegals to join the Military for 2-years as a Pathway to Citizenship. NOBODY should have to play RUSSIAN ROULETTE to become an American Citizen – NOBODY!

 

If you are a regular reader of this Blog, you must know the Truth about the Fallacious Excuses George W. Bush and his Cohorts gave America to justify that unconscionable, but PROFITABLE WAR IN IRAQ!

 

All WARS put Big Money in the pockets of the Few! The rest of us risk Death, Mutilations, Amputations, Quadriplegia & eternal Emotional Distress while these DISASTER CAPITALISTS or WAR PROFITEERS count their 30-pieces of silver!

 

The Propagandists are wrong when they say, “Everybody suffers in War”

 

WAR PROFITEERS DON’T SUFFER!


Tabacco: I consider myself both a funnel and a filter. I funnel information, not readily available on the Mass Media, which is ignored and/or suppressed. I filter out the irrelevancies and trivialities to save both the time and effort of my Readers and bring consternation to the enemies of Truth & Fairness! When you read Tabacco, if you don’t learn something NEW, I’ve wasted your time.

 

Tabacco is not a blogger, who thinks; I am a Thinker, who blogs. Speaking Truth to Power!

 

In 1981′s ‘Body Heat’, Kathleen Turner said, “Knowledge is power”.

    SEE WHAT I MEAN!

    Yes, it took me the better part of 1-minute to find out what those “robocalls” wouldn’t or couldn’t tell me about Proposition 1! Read what I found below:

    A pro-casino robocall that doesn’t mention casinos or gambling

    By Azi Paybarah and Dana Rubinstein

    3:31 pm Nov. 1, 2013

    “This is to let you know that we endorse voting ‘yes’ on Proposition 1,” says a chirpy female voice on a robocall received last night on the office voicemail of a woman who works in downtown Brooklyn.

    Proposition 1 would legalize up to seven full scale, Las Vegas-style casinos in New York State.

    It’s also one of the core elements of Governor Andrew Cuomo’s economic development plan, and has the support of business interests, casino operators and labor unions.

    Cuomo’s argument for the amendment is that it will generate money for education, create jobs and reduce property taxes.

    Last nights’ robocall elided any mention of the word “casino” entirely.

    “Proposition 1 will generate $430 million in tax revenue to support schools in this economic downturn, and create more than 10,000 new jobs,” the woman continues. “When you get to the polls on Tuesday, November 5, remember to vote ‘yes’ on Proposition 1. Thanks.”

    A spokesman for NY Jobs Now, the coalition of business and labor interests coordinating with the governor’s office to push the measure through, said the robocall is not theirs.

    Here’s the audio:
    http://www.capitalnewyork.com/article/politics/2013/11/8535408/pro-casino-robocall-doesnt-mention-casinos-or-gambling

    TABACCO: I haven’t even formed an opinion yet, so I certainly won’t try to influence your vote on Proposition 1. However, I think I’ve made my point about how Politicos and other “untrustworthy” types attempt to influence (manipulate) you and me by “Withholding Relevant & Essential Information”!

    Even Democrats are NOT above manipulation.

    So now you know! You can go to the Post I found and listen to the Audio or research your own Sources. In any event, maybe we have all learned something about WITHHOLDING FAQS, which may be detrimental to their Argument! There are among the Voters many, who oppose Gambling on ethical grounds. THAT’S WHY ROBOCALLS WON’T GIVE US THE FACTS! Fortunately, I am not among that Group!

    The NYS Lottery is GAMBLING! Or didn’t you know?
