Today’s post is running a little late, alright a lot late, but in my defense I sat down last night to write and really wasn’t inspired. It seemed like nothing was happening, the Government was still shut down, and Mr. Obama was still blaming everyone but himself for the shutdown and life, as we know it was still slogging along just like always, with the possible exception of less NSA snoops listening in to our communications. But then, I started thinking, and since I spent the day with my family, it was disjointed thinking, what are we not hearing about?

I started looking at some of the more conspiracy theory stories that were leaking out of the beltway; I was surprised then to find that the Truck drivers protest in Washington D.C. barely rated a mention. The Lame-stream Media is less concerned with threats to Nobel peace prize nominee, Malala Yousafzai than with the White House refusing to cooperate with the Congress. The silence, and it is by no means completely silent, is deafening.

A month ago, the “million motorcycle” march descended onto Washington D.C. and nearly shut down the town. Now there are hundreds of thousands of bikers, returning to the Capitol to protect Veterans going to the memorials in protest. Of course, you can only find the pictures and videos of thousands of angry Americans in all but open revolt against a Government that is not listening to them, and in several cases is directly opposing the will of the people that elected them, on Facebook or other social media.

I find it strange that people that spend so much of their time reading polls can’t look out the window when the people come directly to them in anger. I suppose the problem is that they don’t care about the people, but about the power the office provides, since we are that power, maybe it’s time we make a bigger noise…
