yellow lines and dead armadillos: are you ready for Road Kill Refugee?

About RKR
The former Texas Secretary of Agriculture, Jim Hightower, once said of his own blend of politics, “The only thing in the middle of the road are yellow lines and dead armadillos.” I have no idea what that means, which probably explains why he’s no longer in public office. But it seemed like a cool way to brand the blog.

I’m tired of being fed the MSM’s over-processed, irradiated, genetically altered spam. Too often, surrogates of powerful industries use the MSM to regurgitate talking points and manipulate public opinion at the direction of advertising, political and PR consultants.

The MSM is an enabler of this because the scripted dueling talking heads, as Jon Stewart pointed out to Tucker Carlson, provides inexpensive, bleached white bread and circus diversions without offending media ownership, advertisers and the regulators.

Which is why I started this blog about the joys of raising alpacas!
