The truth may set you free, but finding the truth is like playing tennis. You don't get a hint of it until you've returned the volley about three or four times. The mainstream media counts on the masses never returning what's served up. Journalism today has become a caricature not unlike what Robert Lynd describes by saying "Research without an actively selective point of view is like the ditty bag of an idiot, filled with bits of pebbles, straw, feathers and other random hoardings."

Forty Acres And A Mule?
Counter-Globalization Rolling Forward
by Winsip Custer CPW News Service
John Brown Cushing, the great, great grandson of a slave from the small West Virginia settlement of Shepherdstown, about ten miles from Harper's Ferry and about forty miles from the Maryland/W. Virginia state line, believes he has found the solution to the world-wide globalization that is killing the U.S. economy.
"We've been told that Americans don't want the jobs that have been shipped to totalitarian countries because the workers there will work for less doing dangerous and difficult tasks. Well whose been telling us that for years and years, now? Guys like Mr. Knight of Nike, whose Vietnamese factory uses the government imposed slave labor values of the Third Reich...taxation without representation, no freedom of assembly, no freedom of speech, no right to organize for a better life? I don't care if they work for 20 cents an hour if they are working in a nation where freedom is in place. That's where the American Dream has been lost. People still come here believing that the American Dream is about freedom. Freedom. You hear me? Freedom. That is the only commodity that America has to offer. Anyone can vulcanize rubber shoe soles, stitch seams and thread laces. Anyone can be taught to pick cotton or to work in a hyper-clean environment making silicon chips and computer processors, but in a political environment of freedom of speech, the right to vote and speak your peace? That's the root of all happiness. Ask Jesus. Ask Spartacus. Or William Wallace. Ghandi. Martin Luther King. Instead of being mezmerized by the image of forty acres and a mule which would have cost the Southern plantation owners little and given them an advantage in winning a sweeping victory over the North in the Civil War, even more to the point would have been a push North where people would have been encouraged to build a nation on forty employees and a small factory. That would have provided the type of jobs we all need and deserve," said Cushing.
When asked about the abilities of a nation of small companies to create a program that would take us to the moon and back, Cushing said, "What have we gained from going to the moon? Astronaut Gordon Cooper has gone on record as having seen multiple UFO's, one of which was filmed and sent to Washington for analysis. That film disappeared. I suspect it was because they figured out that the little contraption was built on the Planet Uzanidor in a small factory with forty mahogany colored employees shaped like a lizzard with a manager that looked like a mule," said Cushing.
