Racism, the Rich, Record Debt and More Biased Reporting

*Are you a racist? According to Jesse Jackson, if you oppose Obama’s plan for socialized medicine in the United States, you are. And you’re a racist even if you’re black! Yes, incredible as it may seem, the premier race-baiter in America, the so-called “Reverend” Jesse Jackson, told a crowd at the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation that “You can’t vote against healthcare and call yourself a black man.” His remarks were aimed at Rep. Artur Davis, a black congressman from Alabama who voted against the measure. Good for you, Artur. Please stand up to that loud-mouthed bully.
*Are you an American? Here’s an amazing quote from an Associated Press (AP) story distributed Nov. 17: “Americans don’t want to shoulder the cost of President Barack Obama’s healthcare overhaul themselves. They think the rich should pay for it.” Isn’t that something? According to the AP, if you’re rich, you’re not even an American. Just a goose to be plucked, I guess.
*The National Debt sets another record. Did you realize that the National Debt set another record high last week? Yep, it hit $12 trillion. This is the second time the debt has set a record since Barack Obama became president. In March, it hit the $11 trillion mark for the first. And I’m afraid the big spenders in Washington are just warming up. Maybe the new SOS should be Stop Obama’s Spending!
*How’s this for biased reporting? Sarah Palin’s new book, Going Rogue: An American Life, is setting sales records all over the place. Wherever she holds a book signing, the crowds begin lining up 24 hours ahead of time. So naturally the left is going absolutely berserk. At least the reviewer for The Washington Post admitted she hadn’t even read all of the book before she wrote her scathing comments. But Ana Marie Cox thought that was fine. “(I)f I didn’t read it all, neither can Sarah Palin claim to have completely written it,” she said.
