    IF the media was the evil empire people make it out to be, not only would it be televised, but they would be the ones staging it and profiting from it.

    I am so tired of this image. All of the revolutions are being televised! All of them!


    Well, it wasn’t much of a revolution, but OWS was on TV 24/7 for several months so I don’t think “corporate corruption, greed and fear” means what they think it means.


    Bunch cry babies.


    The worst part is that the phrase “the revolution will not be televised” comes from the title of a comically biased “documentary” supporting Hugo Chavez (Venezuela’s dictator).

    I kind of like the idea of a Johnny Cash song as the anthem for a revolution, “When the man comes around” would work really well


    The funny thing about these things is that the real Revolutions are technological, and sneak up on you like a well camouflaged predator.

    It might not be televised, but it will be blogged, tweeted, tumblred, facebooked and youtubed.


    The revolution will be smoke-signaled, bitches.
