Real News or a Diversion?

For the past several days the news and talk radio have been focused like a laser beam on the Trayvon Martin tragedy to the exclusion of almost everything else. Why?

With our county in what is probably in most inportant election cycle in my lifetime as regards the long term future of our nation, why has this one senseless death among numerous senseless deaths so dominated the airwaves?

Earlier today the President delivered a statement in which he attempted to further demonize the Oil Industry and take away whatever tax breaks they presently enjoy, and it was barely noticed. As was the fact the Democrat controlled Senate rejected the proposal.

Now is the time to be vigilant. While our attention is diverted with the Martin tragedy; While we are busy watching all the usual suspects vie for face time in front of the national media, who knows what might sneek passed us with nobody noticing.
