The Hamburger Of Hypocrisy

September 21, 2010 by  

The Hamburger Of Hypocrisy

Call it “televised serendipity”:  A moment in which two members of the Democrat Party leadership get together and reveal the political deformities which have turned the “big tent” into a circus sideshow. Under normal circumstances — a President Barack Obama press conference, for example — the groveling sycophants in the corporate media allow these boors to babble on without interruption.

While Americans with IQs above the intellectual Mendoza line simply tune out, most liberals remain enraptured, downloading the latest talking points, feverishly anticipating their next opportunity to regurgitate the drivel with the kind of self-importance otherwise reserved for sociopaths and trial lawyers. On occasion, however, more than one of the liberal ruling elite top-rung types end up sharing the same patch of real estate — and then we have to watch as they fog up our screens with unbridled expressions of love for each other — and scorn for the rest of us.

One of those serendipitous moments presented itself late last week, when fleshy filmmaker Michael Moore visited the set of liberal rat-terrier Bill Maher’s Real Time. While both are fairly high-ranking members of the DNC elite, neither is apparently aware that the zaftig Moore makes Rosie O’Donnell look like the “after” picture in a Weight Watchers commercial while Maher is only slightly funnier than an 8-car pileup on the expressway.

Such lack of awareness might explain how these two stooges could have a conversation in which Moore opined:

“…people like Gingrich and Palin? You know, because they’re essentially our mullahs, you know, our Taliban. Hey, how about that McDonald’s two blocks from Ground Zero, Bill?  That’s killed more people than the 19 hijackers…”

Evidently, I missed the nationwide APB for the Hamburglar on Sept. 12.

That’s right, kids — the mammoth movie maker says that Speaker Gingrich, Governor Palin and Egg McMuffins are more sinister than Islamofascism. Perhaps he simply prefers the Whopper to the Big Mac. But the idea that Moore would heave his Brobdingnagian bulk into frame and equate Mayor McCheese with militant Muslims has to be a new low-water mark for the liberal ruling class.

Maher and his carefully screened audience reacted with that smarmy snicker that the Democrats apparently teach in wingnut school. No one noted that the elephantine Moore, who helmed the camera for some of the most deservedly discredited “documentaries” since Leni Riefenstahl was making 8mm loops of Hitler doing the goose step shuffle, might be stretching his minimal credibility farther than the weakening waistband on his jockey shorts.

The good news for those of us with cerebral cortices larger than garlic knots: in addition to being shortchanged in the intellect and talent departments, the liberal ruling elite possess the subtlety of the cast of an MTV reality show. Moore and Maher’s get together was filmed in front of a live studio audience and broadcast to every household which subscribes to HBO.

For those of you who lament the lack of political acumen displayed by America’s peach fuzz generation, millions of viewers, er… thousands, um… hundreds, ah… dozens, ok… more kids saw the gargantuan gasbag Moore compare Newt Gingrich, Sarah Palin and their beloved Ronald McDonald unfavorably with the Taliban than have ever sat through more than a few moments of Chris Matthews nightly tingle-time. They also observed Maher, the junior varsity Jon Stewart, laugh along with the oleaginous auteur without noting that to date, no Fry Guy has ever taken so much as a single flying lesson, much less tried to carry a box cutter onto a commercial jet.

These are the people who have taken over the Democrat Party. These are the people who launch invective at Limbaugh, Beck and Hannity. These are the people who call us racists for opposing — or even daring to question — the Obama agenda. These are the people who opened verbal fire on Christine O’Donnell (who once graced Maher with her presence) mere hours after her ground-shaking victory in Delaware. These are the people who would demand you execrate Sarah Palin while exalting Nancy Pelosi.

At a time when the Democrat party has plunged the country into economic ennui, flatlined our foreign relations and rendered our immigration protections inert, they offer us clowns like Moore and Maher, the haphazard and humorless Laurel and Hardy.

Moore and Maher are members of the liberal leadership so we can divine that this is the direction in which the left is leaning these days. But fret not, my friends, more and more Americans are paying attention.

Forgive me for saying so, but come November:

    Dear Mr. Crystal,

    “zaftig Moore”?
    “serendipitous moments”?
    “IQs above the intellectual Mendoza line”?

    You are a good writer but sometimes I don’t have a clue as to what you are saying

    Try keeping it more simple so that people like me get it and don’t feel stupid.

          9/20/10, To Earl, ‘unctuous’ serves as a better description. These are entertainment–show biz hacks who have far less influence than they’d like us to think. Once their opulent lifestyles are threatened, you’ll see how quick they jump the proverbial ship. ~~~~

          • malachi

            Reading this and other self aggrandizing tripe, reminds me of the “Chitty Chitty bang Bang’s” King’s Birthday Party, . The “court” of the king in that movie look like the characters in our government. Our Senate and the political poops that are holding onto this ghost of a Dream could double for the “Berger mister” and His court.

            That is to say the “Politicians in Washington.”. I sure hope the “KIDS” in Hush-a-by Mountain revolt.

            More quotes that come to mind:

            “Judges, demand a Bribe
            Politicians ask a favor
            Great men of Commerce demand an illicit gift
            Perversion is gaining Ground
            Righteousness is fading from sight and none notice.”

            “The serfs are getting restless, and their knotting up the nooses”

    • Bob

      The Senate nis voting on the Dream Act today to give amnesty to millions of illegals. Instead of calling your Senators you dummies are still arguing about Islam. America is doomed.

      • http://www.infowars.com Th3D3adM3ssenGer

        Well said!

      • TIME

        Saddly Bob, Most have no clue about this bill let alone its add on’s by old Bent Harrys Reid.

        As well as we all know the Dems have the controlling numbers in the Senate, as well lets be real are they going to not vote for this special Harry Reid tack on? If they can fool the American public once and man have they done that in numbers you can’t even count anylonger, will this bill be any differant.

        We as in anyone who has a clue all know the facts are now quite clear even with a massive turn in November; I question if the Republicans have enough “NON Progressives” within the party to get anything done, after all a Progressive Republican is really no differant than a Progressive Democrat, kind of like a Marxist by any other name is still a Marxist.

        • Bob

          Time if this bill passes this week November won’t mean squat. There’ll be 20,000,ooo new Democratic voters.

          • a progressive nightmare

            Try somewhere around 50-60 million new voters. If this DREAM ACT passes, game over! We’re done!

            No, we aren’t done. That is the time the bullets come out…

        • Kate8

          refuse2lose, Exactly what I was thinking.

          We shut the WH and Congressional switchboards down with opposition to Obamacare, not to mention the bailouts and previous amnesty pushes. They KNOW how we feel, and they don’t care. Their eyes are on the prize – enough new voters to make our voices truly meaningless.

          • Kate8

            JeffH, Thanks for the kind words. And you are right. I will stand with America until my last breath, along with you and many others on this site. I started to mention ‘names’, but I didn’t want to leave anyone out inadvertently. But rest assured, each one of you is deeply appreciated, in my heart and in my prayers.

            Harold, I’m not sure who you are, but we will all stand together, and we WILL win.

            Godspeed to all.

          I use two online organizations to send faxes to my reps and they do work as I get generic replys back from Boxer and Feinstein.

            LOL..sending faxes to those two traitors does nothing. They do not read your faxes, it is an automatic response program that reads the subject line and sends out an appropriate canned response. They could care less what you or I think.

        • http://?? Joe H.

          refuse2lose,
          actually, during Bushes tenure we DID stop amnesty!! I question if all the people that say they called on Nobamacare actually did!!!

          • Kate8

            Joe H., If the townhalls were any indication, people were really riled up about Obamacare.

            In DC they complained about the switchboards shutting down. Actually, they shut them down because they didin’t want to deal with all the anger and protest.

            They got the message. They just had orders to get it passed no matter what, and that’s what they did.

            I, for one, have had enough. ENOUGH.

            The contractor for the power company just came out tonight to install a ‘smartmeter’ to my house. I bluntly told him ‘NO!’ He said ‘okay’ and left. I heard that many people in my town have stood up to them, and I heard it is going to court. Not that that is much comfort, courts being what they are today (I live in CA), but at least people are speaking up.

            I’ve drawn a line in the sand. How many will do the same, no matter what? Because that is what it will take.

          • a progressive nightmare

        If Oboma’s am”nasty” bill goes thru, Americans won’t have a prayer. All of the service stations, motels & convenience stores on every major hyway & Interstates are owned by muslims, we have 3 american cities that are all muslims, some schools up north are making students praise Allah. If this amnesty bill goes thru, we will be outnumbered, 20 million muslims already here, 15 million more to be Citizens, we don’t have enough Republicans to out vote them. They will not let us buy gas to travel. I think the US will have a war within, If they attach Israel. God will step in, he will not let them destroy his chosen country. How can we win, we have muslims in our military, our Gov, the White House, the Pentagon, how can we win without God’s help?ou

    • Dean

      When all else fails, look it up.

      The term is named for former shortstop Mario Mendoza, a flashy defensive player who struggled at the plate. Although Mendoza’s batting average was .215 lifetime, he was known as a sub-.200 hitter whose average frequently fell into the .170 to .180 range during any particular year. That proved to be true in 1979 when Mendoza managed to finish the year with a meager .198 average.

      The “Mendoza Line” was created as a harmless clubhouse joke amongst friends. “My teammates Tom Paciorek and Bruce Bochte used it to make fun of me,” Mendoza said in 2010. “Then they were giving George Brett a hard time because he had a slow start that year, so they told him, ‘Hey, man, you’re going to sink down below the Mendoza Line if you’re not careful.’ And then Brett mentioned it to Chris Berman from ESPN, and eventually it spread and became a part of the game.”

            Robet S,

            You’re right.. we still have Free Speech as outlined in the First Amendment of the Constitution. The toilet mouths can talk all they want on TV, I’ll just change the channel so I don’t puke.

            Down size DC and we’ll all be more healthy!

          • Kate8

            Geez, Rober S. Are you still here?

            What free speech? You libs are all for free speech as long a it’s about obscenity, homosexuality, Christian bashing or some other liberal passtime.

            If it involves God, morality or just human kindness, you are the ones who what to shut people up.

            You complain about not wanting Christian morality forced upon you (as if it ever was), but then go ahead and pass laws to force your degradation and corrupt value system upon us and our children, regardless of how offensive it is to us.

            You have no credibility here, Mr. Smith. Your words ring hollow.

          • http://naver samurai

            Sorry Robert, you may have freedom of speech, but when you have something worth listening to we’ll listen! Keep up the good fight, fellow patriots! Harry Reid was defeated, now let’s go for the rest of them. FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

    • petepalmer

      Uh, can you please define what racism is in this day and age. I mean, Obama is an alderman maquerading as a President and the Real Americans, aka, Republicans are preparing to return him to his social club because of just these reasons not because he is black! But, if you are a liberal panderer I would be considered a racist. I like and dislike people from all classes, races, religions and countries. Explain please!

      • Vicki

        it is actually very easy. You disagree with the progressives. You are a racist.

    • jwillyy

      good communication is not just to make yourself understood, but to make yourself never misunderstood. ppl who love to use words that only a few understand are not trying to reach out to the masses but are only trying to make themselves superior in their own minds. I may not spell very good but at least I try to be understood.

    • refuse2lose

      Let’s see,liberals claim people like Jon Stewart,Bill Maher,Michael Moore,Rosie ODonnell and Lady Gag Me as leaders of their party.

      Conservatives claim Rush,Sean Hannity,Sarah Palin,Chuck Norris as their leaders. So tell me,who would you rather be sitting in a foxhole with?

      • a progressive nightmare

        Good point! Anyone who would give nut case Bill Maher and Dump Truck Moore a seat at an adult conversation couldn’t possibly have an IQ greater than 80. These two idiots are nothing more than fellow progressive-marxists with a deeply rooted hate for the American way of life. Heck, add Jimmy Carter to the mix and you would have a tripple wammy of progressive stupidity.

        What’s even “Moore” funny, these idiots that follow them have no clue as to the MILLIONS these clowns have made off the very system their trying to destroy.

        Bottom line, that “Touchy-Feely” progressive mentality will get you every time! Send them more of your money DUMMIES while they laugh all the way to the bank! Do you “Feel Good” now? DUMMIES!

        • Kinetic1

          So, Moore hates the American way of life? I assume you base this on his condemnation of GM for moving their plant to Mexico and leaving his home town of Lansing to suffer a slow lingering death? Or maybe it has to do with his belief that Americans should not loose their health insurance (if they are lucky enough to have any) just because they get sick. Maybe you think it’s a good idea for companies to pay their CEOs tens of millions of dollars in bonuses for firing scores of their employees just before year end? No matter that many of these companies are showing record profits, because firing those workers makes their bottom line look even better!

          I’d say that many of the people Morre takes aim at are the truly un-American members of our society. They’re the people who send our jobs over seas, knowingly put our health, even our lives at risk to cut the cost of production and then run to the government to save them when they screw up. These large corporations place more of a load on our police force, our fire fighters and our roads, but they balk at the idea of paying their share of taxes. They poison our air, land and water and then they pay billions to ad men and lobbyists to keep the government from forcing them to pay for the cleanup. Yep, people like Moore should be ashamed for exposing these true American heros!

          As for us “DUMMIES”, we know that Moore and Mahr are successful. Moore’s “worth” is estimated at around $50 million and Mahr’s at $13 million. Moore and his wife own a lake front house in Michigan worth around $650,000. They’ve done well for themselves. Now let’s look at that “everyday guy” Shawn Hannity. He’s just like you and he understands how you feel. I know that because he tells us so all the time. He stands up for the American businessman and reminds you that those big corporations pay your (and his) salary. Well, I’ve read that he was worth around $30 million, but now he has signed a new contract worth $100 million over 5 years. That has nothing to do with TV, books and advertising, so we can only imagine what this “great American” is worth. His waterfront house in Long Island? A modest $3.4 million, just like your house! And then there is that pillar of conservative humility, Rush. His place in West Palm Beach is valued at $25 million! Latest estimates put this guy’s “value” at around a Billion dollars. These two conservatives are the ones telling you to vote against raising taxes on the rich. These are the guys warning you that you’ll all lose your jobs if the wealthy have to pay any more. These are the guys who twist the numbers to convince you that the rich suffer an unfair burden. These guys have convinced you to help them keep every penny they can by placing more of the burden on you and me, and we Libs are the “DUMMIES”?

            yup you libs are the dummies they have their millions God bless them, at least we had a free country where they could make that kind of money and when they made millions at least I got to make thousands and have a decent lifestyle, when you take their evil money away from them through taxes I probably won’t even make hundreds, you libs are so eager to 3rd world us with your righteous cries of equality for all what you really mean is poverty for all, I don’t care if the rich are rich what I see is americans of all incomes have had a good life here in the good ole USA far better than most in the world but it’s fast disappearing soon we won’t even be able to afford energy thanks to you damn communists

          • Viktor Leben

            Kinetic1,

            My theory on Moore and Maher is they did allot of good in the beginning of their careers. Maher had the show “Politically Incorrect”, I enjoyed watching on the TV. Moore’s documentary “Roger and Me” was top notch on the death of his hometown in Michigan.

            What happen with them ? In my honest opinion they became liberal “reactionaries”. The side they perceived as their political enemy has changed them. The liberals are exploiting them right now.

            Don’t let your enemies change you. Walk the straight and narrow path, don’t let your enemies turn you to the left or right. Sort of like Pilgrim’s Progress ?? Ha HA

          • a progressive nightmare

            You sure do type alot to say so little. DUMMY seems to fit you well. GM is dead because it was raped by a bunch of UNION thugs. Unfortunately, our grandchildren will have the pleasure of paying for the unconstitutional DUMB bailouts.

            Healthcare??? Fact is 40% of the people you progressives state that don’t have insurance, choose not to, and, their household income exceeds $50,000 per year. Seems we have some folks that don’t have their priorities right! Oh, I get it, let the children pay for it! PATHETIC!

            As far as who makes what, who cares! A good CEO is worth every penny he or she is paid. If not, they will be FIRED!!! DUMMY! When you have a union thug workforce making 6 figures to build a DUMB car, what else do you expect? Hell, some doctor’s don’t make that! IDIOTS!

            Given the fact that you follow Michael Moore, nothing “Moore” needs to be said.

            My post was to you, Mr. ENERGY, in case you can’t figure that out.

          • a progressive nightmare

            Mr Energy, Just in on Fox News this morning. UAW workers smoking dope and drinking on lunchbreak. Maybe we should give these guys a raise to a 1/4 Million a year!!!! I wonder how dump truck moore will spin this one. You think maybe this has anything to do with the decline of Detroit and the auto-industry as a whole? DUH?

            and to think, our granchildren are paying these guys!

        • Robert Smith

          From a progressive nightmare: >>>Send them more of your money DUMMIES while they laugh all the way to the bank! <<<

          Actually they don't get something for nothing. They provide a product, in both cases entertainment, that I'm willing to pay for through HBO or Netflix. I'm selective about my entertainment. I don't watch Fox, Jane Fonda (I was in the USN on flight skins when she was in an AA gun seat), or John Travolta (Scientology), or Mel Gibson (just plane nuts) movies.

          BTW, nobody, NOBODY, has done anything but call Michael Moore names. Not one of the ideas or facts presented in his works have been challenged.

          Is anyone up for disputing something in one of his documentaries or is the silly right wing name calling going to continue? Does anyone around here have anything substancial to say?

            Just the facts please,Moore uses made up propaganda for his far left want to be movies and he is a true anti American commie with a big C.Moore became a muslim so he could sit in the streets with his anti American muslim losers on his prayer rug while facing mecca every friday at 42nd st and madison ave in new york city at 2pm until 4pm and blocks rush hour traffic and of course there are no arrests because the new york law enforcement officers are not allowed to arrest muslims that are breaking the law because our muslim president will not let them and moore loves to hang out with anti Americans so hop a plane and go and join him…. Anyone who loves moore or jane the loser commie anti American fonda must be a far left Liberal voting democrat anti American.Are you voting for pelosi and boxer? I hope that answers your question….

          • Robert Smith

            Lots of rant from gyb but no examples or facts.

            Thanks for the example of name calling though. An excellent demonstration of how bankrupt the right truly is.

            I feel what Jane Fonda did was wrong visiting the enemy during the Vietnam War. I see some in our military don’t like her. I was surprised when a Training Instructor in the Air Force told me that Jane Fonda has the right to speak on the base, just like any American has. That was my BASIC experience. All the airmen were singing “We are the World” during chapel.

            I use to feel the same way as you Robert Smith. I couldn’t tolerate Jane Fonda lovers in the Air Force or fellow airmen singing “We are the World” during BASIC. I got psychological help – 2 weeks in 4th floor of a San Antonio military hospital. I was kicked out of the USAF for having a “Nazi like” attitude and being intolerant to people who weren’t as conservative as I was …

            Having a intolerant attitude for Liberals leads to a “treasonous” mindset. I still struggle with my intolerance .. especially when I’m tired. But the good Doctors and Nurses in the Air Force helped me get started on the road to recovery… God Bless Them !

        How's them there clinic shootings going these days? I'm sure Tiller might have something to say but he was shot in church. A Christian church of all places by another alleged christian.

        Rob

        • Mik

          Let’s see – Crusades were started why? Oh yey, the Muslums conquest of Syria and the Holy Land (forcing everyone to become Muslum of Die) and the destruction by the Muslum of all the holy and sacred places in tese areas. The wars continued as the Musulms tried to converts THRU CONQUEST not through evangilization, other parts of Europe.
          http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crusades#Middle_Eastern_situation
          Now During the wars other political battles also became entangled with the crusades, no different from todays wars – are we ever 100% sure exactly why we are fighting something at any specific point in time (WMD vs 9/11).
          Oh – Tiller- Yey a crazy who is not supported by any serious Christain or Jewish relgion. No one praies his actions like they praise the actions that Muslums take when they commit violence.
          You really need to compare apples to apples and understad your history before trying to thow out ” Oh Yey What about…. gottcha comments…. There are always going to be an exception but are they the norm?
          For Christians, no we do not declare a Jihad to destroy others – (though through out history we did fight for our survival and the day may come wher we will be forced to fight again). But we would prefer to live in peace and spread our faith through evangilization and our actions of serving others – not by killing them because they don’t believe as we do.

          • Robert Smith

            From that same article: “Because the First Crusade was largely concerned with Jerusalem, a city which had not been under Christian dominion for 461 years, and the crusader army’s refusal to return the land to the control of the Byzantine Empire, the status of the First Crusade as defensive or as aggressive in nature remains controversial.”

            Like I said, been to any good crusades (BTW, a word Bush used) or inquisitions lately?

            Rob

          • http://naver samurai

            Sorry Rob, but the crusades were started to free the Holy Land from 100′s of years of aggression and suppression by the muslims. It was also because of the systematic killing of Christians and Jews. FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

          • Mik

            Rob- It wasn’t under Muslum control for those 400 + years either. Like you say, controversial, not Fact. And if they were truly aggressors, which may have been the case in some of the conflicts – then at that period of time they were not peaceful. The crusades though were not suupported by the Bible telling the Cristians to go on them unlike the Koran tell Muslams to kill Christans and Jews as well as to lie about their faith if they must in order to infitrate the infadels inorder to overcome them.

          • Viktor Leben

          Of course he was shot in a church,Where else could some commie muslim shoot someone and send the blame to the christian community. The koran says chapter 2 verses 190-193 to kill the unbeliever.Chapter 2 verse 216 chapter 2 verse 224 chapter 3 verse 157-158 chapter 4 verse101 chapter 4 verses 74-75 and on and on so let me remind you. America was founded on the bible and the ten christian commandments and not islam. The Bible says to pray even for your enemies and to love one another. The koran says to kill the unbeliever and if you want to I can go on and on.If you want to be a muslim lover and give them special treatment then move to the middle east and take your prayer rug with you. This is still America and we all should have to follow the law and that includes the muslims. That does not mean the muslim get special rights but the same rights. In new york city on 42nd st and madison ave every friday at 2pm until 4pm hundreds of muslims block rush hour traffic without a permit and place there prayer rugs in the streets and face mecca and they do this every friday in several locations and nobody gets arrested and you will not see this on the far left main stream news either.What would happen if 200 jews or christians did the same thing,they would be arrested on the spot. How about we all just wake up and face the truth. Our muslim no birth certificate president lets the muslims break the law and then sends a radical muslim iman around the world with tax payers dollars and tells him he speaks for all of America. No,sir mr president,your radical iman does not speak for me. And as far as till the killer,it was not a christian who shot him so why do you not get your facts strait?

            Where do I begin with a rant like this? First, the shooter was not a Muslim. Second, our nation was NOT founded on Christianity. If you doubt this, read the Treaty of Tripoli. Third, the document is legal, like it or not. and finally, Bush sent out the same Imam (not Iman) to do the same job, but I don’t recall you complaining then.

            The Treaty of Tripoli is referring that we have no state church. The term “Christian” isn’t taken in it’s Lockean sense. A government can still be theistic and secular. The two aren’t mutually exclusive.

      I enjoy these articles, and they have a ton of merit and common sense, however, I find fault with blaming the “Democratic Party” for all its ineptitudes.

They claim to be something when their viting record shows otherwise. Republicans are just as much to blame for our disgusting situation.

  • John Hasse

    Green makes a good point. writing is supposed to be about communicating. Not about impressing people with how erudite you are.

      Maybe he’s trying to make a point.

      1. A conservative if they don’t know what it means will actually look up the meaning/context.

      2. Conservatives actually are more educated than progressives give them credit for (see point 1).

      3. Could be mocking the progressive elites…?

      4. Or maybe your right and the writer is just missing the mark with us normal people.

      Of course, us normal people probably fit into categories 1 and 2 because the progressive elites seem to think we are all dumb as bricks and need to be forced to do what they think is right, and because we actually do look at history and try to put things into context and perspective. Sort of explains why we oppose the reality of socialism instead of reveling in the theory of it. Sort of explains why we oppose “Obamacare….” And why we are just plain mad that our elected representatives pass 1000+ page bills into law without reading the cursed legislation. So of course we end up having to do what they were supposed to, and we are plum sick and tired of their claims to superiority when to us they are just looking dumber and dumber every day.

          “Higher education”? Don’t you actually mean “higher indoctrination”? The overwhelming majority of our “progressive” educational institutions have lost the ability to teach their students “how to think”, and can now only teach them “what to think”.

            …and you would probably claim that evolutionism is not a religion? Religion is defined by Webster as a person’s belief system. I would proffer that belief in the theory of Evolution requires far greater faith than belief in creationism.

            If taken from a strictly secular viewpoint, Evolution and “Intelligent Design” can both be considered as valid theories, not facts, but theories. Utilizing conventional (and proper) scientific method, one would proceed to prove or disprove each theory by accumulating solid data, evidence, and other factual information before arriving at a conclusion. Oddly, the modern “scientific” method employed by the so-called evolutionists first forms a conclusion that evolution is a fact, and then works backwards to develop so-called proof. A disastrous failure at best.

            QUOTE: “The eight Dover school board members who voted for the intelligent design requirement were all defeated in a November 8, 2005 election. How’s that for people VOTING!”

            No one ever claimed that all voters were intelligent.

            Which comes full circle to what I previously said about “progressive” schools not teaching people (aka voters) “how to think” but only “what to think”. A fact with which you seem to be intimately familiar!

        If you think pelosi has done a great job then maybe you have to many government entitlement programs going for you…. pelosi got her new jet and America got a new jet payment….I still can not understand how pelosi gets all the water she wants for her multi million dollar northern california vineyards when she cut the water to all those northern california farms????? Well America, lets all understand that obama and reid and pelosi and friends have been BOUGHTOUT.Can you say george soros????Can you say offshore accounts?????

          From guyb: >>> pelosi got her new jet and America got a new jet payment….<<<

          Another tall tail from the hate mongers and spinmeisters on the right. Pelosi DID NOT make any specific request for any particular airplane.

          From: http://www.factcheck.org/askfactcheck/did_nancy_pelosi_order_up_a_200-seat.html "When Pelosi became speaker, House Sergeant at Arms Bill Livingood, according to his own account, worried that the small craft would be unable to travel to her home district of San Francisco without stopping to refuel. Livingood, who was first elected by a Newt Gingrich-led House in 1995, asked the Air Force and the Department of Defense about getting a bigger plane."

          You may want to try a relationship with the facts rather than knee jerk screeds that just don't have any connection to reality.

            THe point is that the “Queen” couldn’t be bothered to stop for fuel. Nor could the smaller planes carry the complete entourage in the queen’s court.

    Steam seems to be running out on the programmers of the masses led by fear, insecurity and xenophobia. The Right is pulling all stops in their panic to label anything aiding Americans as “socialist” and the truth is twisted into distortion.

    Of course Palin, Gingrich etc are America’s version of the Taliban…that is obvious. One doesn’t have to be a brain surgeon to know that. It just requires an IQ indicating a sentient being.

    Fact…since 1980, America’s Middle Class has had war waged on it. Overall wage and earning power has diminished. Wealth and power is concentrated increasingly in the hands of a few. And the Right wing, corporate interests, and wealthy have used reigious dogma, fear, Xenophobia, and the hate fostered creation of “the enemy’ out of fellow Americans standing against them. When it came to a head in the 2000′s, they rigged the system to create an illusion of wealth to the Middle Class and working man. Drawing down and stealing the last vestiges of savings and wealth to where we now are fighting not only to resurrect the Middle Class..but for the very survival of the Middle Class.

    Look at the data before calling names or deriding the facts. Truth is truth. Fact is fact. It began with the attacks by the Right’s darling poster child…Reagan, up to Bush II the worst we had. Bush II was nothing less than a puppet who advanced the cause against us.

    So today? Anything…policy, idea, proposal etc..is labelled “socialist’ if it goes against the furtherance of wealth and power concentration. Smal Business aid and credit? Against…unless it also includes the Big Corporate interests who will drain the majotiy of the funds. Tax relief? If it only affects 98% of Americans and excludes the super rich who already enjoyed histroically low tax rates in the 90′s…against. But they demand the wealthy get tax relief…at the cost of ballooning our deficit. Even the populist uprising known as the Tea Party has been taken over and driven by those entrenched interests (and anyone who thiks diferently is a fool..plain and simple). And ya gotta love that the GOP used the auto bailouts as a basis to attack the admin…..a policy which saved hundreds of thousands of jobs. But listen this week…bet you’ll read or hear of some GOPer at some plant reopening taking credit. Yet..they voted against having a US auto industry. Ya listening??? They voted against America having an auto industry ! 3rd World status is what they wanted !

    And last? When you read or hear a GOP candidate say they want to cut taxes and reduce government…ask the obvious…ask them “For whom, how are they going to deal with the deficit, and what will they cut?” And demand numbers. The response is pap. Smooth, no substance pap.

    We’re coming out of this Recession folks…whether it’s a slow painful recovery…or one which we move forward and rebuild our Nation back to it’s once modernized greatness…that’s the question.

    Which are you for?

            I’m not sure if the auto industry should have been bailed out.All they made were gas guzzling dinosaurs. Not bailing them out is exactly what the Republicans wanted.(for political reasons of course). This would bring more unemployment and crush the party in power (obama). They will get blamed and this will assure a Republican victory. The Republicans can weave their own treacherous webs!

          • Claire

            The auto bailouts probably saved jobs. I don’t know the answer to this, if it was the correct thing to do. I do know I am going to buy a Chevy Impala. I am going to support American made products as much as I can. Hopefully I will help keep some people employed.

            Joe,
            It’s easy to point to the success a few of us have had over the last 20 years, but look out the window once in a while. The middle class suffered a substantial loss under the last administration. Unemployment is at record highs and the news is filled with stories of Whit collar workers having to accept lower paying jobs to pay the bills. My congratulations to your wife for her success. My wife has also done well, and we are thankful to be among the few.

          • a progressive nightmare

            Joe, You’re wasting you time with flash, kinetic, eddie47d and dumniso. Many people have had and continue to have successes in America and that just flies in the face of progressive-marxism. They just “feel” nobody can make it without their progressive helping hand.
            That’s why you see this current regime in Washington doing everything in their power to undermine our business community, currency and our economy in general. Pathetic little folks but I think we will survive them.

            Bottom line, they can’t make it in America, without us paying for their bad habits and poor judgements in life, so, they think nobody else can, because they are just so much smarter than all the rest of us.

    • JKO

      Wasn’t there some kind of stock market bubble during this time… I seem to recall that a lot of people – in the middle class – were able to make some good money in the 90s.
      AND while we did have more GOP presidents, congress was ruled more by democrats.
      We need to realize that BOTH Dems and Reps are to blame. As far as I can tell both parties have been taken over by “progressives”. You CAN rightfully blame the GOP, but the Dems deserve just as much blame. We need to stop voting party and start actually knowing out candidates. While I did not vote for Obama BECAUSE I knew nothing about him many of the people I know who did vote for him are sorry now. The bummer is that McCain (and I live in AZ) was not much better in his politics. Let’s get some candidates that actually say what they mean and mean what they say.
      Or maybe even better, we could get on our knees and ask God who He wants to be our leaders. But then I guess I will be called a terrorist for suggesting such a thing.
      BTW- Maher and Moore are both idiots. (It’e OK if you think I am one too.)

      • HFlashman

        JKO…Never said you were an idiot. And for the most part I agree with your portrayal of both the Dems and GOP leaderships throughout the past 30 years. I did not vote for Reagan…and hope he’s very very hot where he’s at. I did vote for Bush I. He tried to salvage a little, but continued the sell out of the Middle Class ad America though in a smoother fashion. Clinton was subjected to virulent, baseless attacks. Without merit or proof. Starr went on his Inquisition and Gringrich sold us out lock stock and barrel.

        Then came Bush II…and the SCOTUS sell out issuing an opinion that even today no one can make sense out of except it was a blantant take away from America’s Right to choose it’s leadership. Blatant, and totally controlled by the interests of the entrenched wealthy and powerful.

      Flashman,
      You’re very eloquent, more than most (many people here use “then” when they mean “than,” use a comma for an apostrophy, misspell words, etc). I’m impressed. But your logic is backward.

      Tax breaks are for taxpayers, and no one else. The ‘rich’ pay more in taxes than those who are not rich, therefore they get tax breaks.

      Fact is truth: it is — and always has been — Congress who sets fiscal policy, establishes laws that allow those who cannot pay their bills to own homes, and myriad other travesties. It is Congress that has screwed up this country.

      They say ‘politics makes for strange bedfellows,’ and never has that been more true than when Congress passes a bill that the President wants and tacks on an Ammendment that requires something that only a few want…and the many in Congress vote for it (and the President signs it) because of the main part of the bill. Sad, but true.

      You’re obviously smart enough to do some real research, so put some facts together that tell a real story, not your incessantly liberal blather. Please…!

      Common sense spending – something we are not seeing in today’s government!

    • Average Joe

      HFlashman,
      ” We’re coming out of this Recession folks…whether it’s a slow painful recovery…or one which we move forward and rebuild our Nation back to it’s once modernized greatness…that’s the question.

      Which are you for?”

      It only took from 1913 until 1920 (7 years) for the fiat money here to create the first depression in the US (print it up…and spend, spend, spend..as congress has done since the implementation of the Fed.). Harding did the right thing, he allowed the banks and businesses that screwed up to fail. The economy rebounded within 1.5- 2 years.

      It took from 1922 to 1929 (7 years… again) for the fiat money to cause the second depression (congress on another spending spree along with with Fractional reserve banking practices). However, FDR didn’t allow the businesses and banks to fail. Instead he propped them all up (by the theft of the American people’s gold) Under Presidential Executive Order 6102.

      http://www.the-privateer.com/1933-gold-confiscation.html

      The immediate effect of this act took away 40% of the American people’s wealth ( the government bought it back at face value rather than market value). Under FDR and the “New Deal”, the economy did not rebound until the beginning of WW2 (13 years).

      Now we have Obama and this administration following in the footsteps of FDR, not only making the same mistakes, but compounding them (because there is no gold to prop it up…only fiat currency). Since 1913 (with the implementation of the Federal Reserve), the dollar has lost 94% of it’s purchasing power. How much lower can we get? Can this continue for another 11 years?…you do the math.

      You stick with your Keynesian economics ( let me know how that borrowing your way out of debt works out for you [try it with your mortgage]) and I’ll stick with Austrian economics. Looking at history beats the heck out of looking ant monetary “theory” any day of the week. Fiat currency has NEVER worked in any system where it was implemented….Therein lies the entire economic problem in ths country…… The Federal Reserve and bad policy.

      On June 4, 1963 Congress abolished Silver Certificates and a citizen could no longer redeem their Silver Certificates for silver on June 24, 1968. This act pretty much ended the life of Silver Certificates. Kind of sad, really. It placed us on FRN’s which were no longer redeemable in silver.

      http://www.trackdollarbills.com/blog/2008/09/07/silver-certificates/

      In response, Kennedy issued the EO 11110 On June 4, 1963 . This placed the printing of “Treasury Notes” squarley back in the hands of the Treasury and out of the hands of the Federal Reserve (a privately owned and operated foriegn banking cartel). This returned to the people value backed currency in place of FRN’s (fiat currency). That single act of defiance against the Federal Reserve cost Kennedy his life. On the very day that Kennedy was assasinated Nov. 22, 1963. Congress started to pull silver certificates out of circulation and dumped $50 billion in new FRN’s…redeemable in nothing….

            Vickie; I saw your China clip but don’t fully agree with the outcome. Overly fat people are not a sign of wealth no matter how much money that person has. They lack respect for their own bodies and little self control in their decision making. Overweight people are less active and do become lazy as Craig said. Being a Twiggy has it’s own set of problems too. I eat too much beef even after my wife and I say we won’t do it. So we all bend our own rules once in awhile.

      People like Moore are one of the reasons the health system is so expensive. We all have a responsiblity to take care of ourselves. If you think Maher is funny, then you have no sense of humor.

      • Fast Freddy

        I have to wonder just how many intelligent Americans actually take anything that nitwits like Moore and Maher say seriously?[How about none?], Moore is the picture of an over-stuffed socialist, and as for Maher I can hardly believe that a homely, no-talent, ignorant idiot like him actually has celebrity status, the Hollywood left recently gave him a star on the “walk of fame”, should I ever have the opportunity to walk my dog on that sidewalk, I’ll be sure to let Buster drop his lunch on Maher’s name.

    Bill Maher as I have met him I can tell you he is equal to a dog with bad gas as far as his personality goes, and really thats giving him more credit than I should.

    Think more along the lines of a Quasi level at best on his intellect, and agressively ignorant as far as his knoledge levels on anything and I do mean anything.
    That would include his hygiene methods, he smells funny, I mean he really smells funny. His teeth always have some kind of gunk on them too, whats the deal with that?

    It just goes to show someone who’s not funny others than smelling funny gets a Telie show, this is one of the reasons I did the disconnect on the telie years ago.

    Really whats on the Telie thats worth watching? What sports where you have a gang of fruit loops telling you what you just saw? As if you can’t figure it out.

    The news where its so contrived that unless your brain dead its bloody obvious, even to the blind and deft.

    Or the canned humor shows where the humor is just slightly above a 3rd graders humor level. And thats a real strech.

    Or the movie of the week done by an agressivly pompous buffoon in most cases, who has zero talent at acting, but has opinions you really need to hear about.

    Ok so again whats on the Telie thats really worth squat?
    The time you spend watching the Telie you can never get back, its lost forever and you have gained nothing, learned nothing, and now have a few hours less in your life to do anything that has meaning or value.

    But hey thats just my thoughts, what are your’s?

    • Joyce from Loris

      Time, I agree. I tuned out of the television years ago. I have witnessed people who would LOSE SLEEP in order to watch a dumb ball game. They could care less about what is going on in the world, but knew all the ball scores, who played on what team, etc.! Ridiculous. Add all that to the sit com’s about homosexuals, the cop shows, American Idol, etc…. I mean, what is left? Nothing. I do watch Fox News sometimes, but they lean a little liberal for me as well. You can’t watch Hannity anymore, Bob Beckle is always there, and I just can’t stomach him. Greta is so concerned about the mexicans being PROFILED, but not concerned at all that they are here taking American jobs and welfare money. O’Reilly has Juan Williams set in for him??? Really, Juan Williams, a liberal???

        joyce from loris

        for awhile i thought i was the only one complaining about the news programs on fox. i always appreciate a different view as long as the person doesn’t get obnoxious. fox seems to go overboard for some of these obnoxious liberals, alan colmes, bob beckle and dumber than dumb juan williams. bill o’reilly is nothing more than a closet democrat and playing the independent card. i don’t really trust glenn beck, there’s something there he is cleverly covering up and i can’t put my finger on it. i hope i’m wrong, he says a lot that i agree with. sean hannity is probably the only true conservative, but his choice of having beckle on his show leaves me wondering.

        • dahni uru

          For me, Beckel is the same as Moore. I try to get info from a few different sites on tv, and more from newspapers online as well as blogs, where many do present sources for their data. I think we’re split three ways: liberals, rightists and the rest of us who want mainly to support/maintain a social/economic structure in which we have Rights as well as Responsibilities.

      You are right. My television has been hooked only to a DVD player for years now. My wife complains occasionally – but she knows it is doubtful that I would ever hook it back to an antenna. Even if I do, she knows it goes off when I get home from work.

      Try watching a “humor” show without the canned laughter. It is so seldom that I see or hear anything that I think is remotely funny. They depend upon the canned laughter to make you think it might be funny.

        I have an ability to see through people so when I meet a person who is say in Congress or the Senate, etc. after speaking with them for even just a few moments, I can size them up into three slots;
        #1, Outright lyre.
        #2, Out for themselfs and screw everyone else.
        #3, Honest – confused, and trying hard.

        Of the 3 slots only 10% fit in group number 3.

        Slot #1, is nearly 70%
        Slot #2, is about 20%

        Now give or take a few points per unit but its all going to be within a 1% margin.

        I have made my living off reading people, after 40 years of doing so I have been wrong and thats not 100% totaly but partly wrong only 3 times.
        I have to say I trust my gut instincts, I have done very well doing so.

    Where’s George Carlin when you need him? As long as Herr Obummer and his deluded moonbats are in charge, America needs all the humor it can get.

    Biden is one of the few members of ‘The DUH Party’ who can make people laugh. But, Biden doesn’t get it. He’s no comedian. People laugh AT him because he always has at least one foot in his mouth. Then, there’s Obummer, who has no sense of humor, can’t read from a teleprompter, has no original ideas and has done absolutely nothing to deserve being in the White House.

Yes, govt. is corrupt and broken, but you think un-checked corporate power is better? Love the corporations hate the unions? It’s just ridiculous to me, your lack of grasping history. Don’t forget about our socialist police departments, fire departments, roads, etc. Liberals gave us the 40 hour work week, overtime, etc. etc. the list goes on and on. If you prefer no middle class at all, being a serf to some multinational corporation that couldn’t give s sh$t about America, then vote for the tea party in November. And PLEASE remember most of our founders were DEISTS, NOT Christians, the word GOD is NOT in the constitution, and some of our founders were VERY liberal…like Thomas Paine! If you bothered to actually read him instead of Beck’s interpretation you’d know that. This IS class warfare, and believe or not I’m on your side. Astro-turf tea party movement funded by millionaires and billionaires represents their interests, which aren’t yours – unless you’re rich. This country was founded as a WE country, not a ME country, stop being so selfish with regard to health care, taxes, etc. Don’t you care about your fellow American?

      • 45caliber

        Two hundred years ago you could be liberal and still believe in God. It is only in the last thirty years or so that liberals have begun to believe that liberals and God cannot go together. Actually most of the Founding Fathers were Christian. Even Thomas Jefferson said he was. They established the government here based on the Christian beliefs of freedom and fair play. The liberals are now saying that it was never that way – and that we shouldn’t expect it as a result.

        For any civilization to exist, there has to be a set of morals establlished that all people follow. The liberal belief that there is none or should be none is what is wrong with much of our society today.

        If you don’t believe it God, that is your problem (literally). But don’t try to insist that everyone else doesn’t believe in God either just to justify yourself.

        Oh, I forgot. You asked if I cared about my fellow American. I do … although there are times I’m not sure I should. And I take care of them when necessary. Notice that I said “I” take care of them; not that the government does.

        Why should I spend billions of dollars to put up intermediates between me and those who have a problem? And why should I be concerned about people who are too lazy to work for a living and want to simply lay around and watch TV all day rather than get a job? If they want to not work, it is their affair … but it is also MY business if I decide that I don’t have to give them anything to do it.

        Taxes? We need them to provide the minimum security we need. We don’t need them for everything. And health care? Again, I’m willing to help – but only those who really need it. And “I” make the decision.

          Just a note. Over 90% of the money allocated to Welfare gets spend in administration of the program. In fact, I believe that less than 3% gets to the people. If you want to solve hte problem, first shut down Welfare. Then have the IRS cut a check (they are equipt to do it) to the people who show less than the poverty level. You would save billions and get more to the people.

            You need to take a course in analogies.
            No – your def of slavery does not compute.
            1. Those working in those positions get paid a wage (less the taxation – the part that they are a slave to)
            2. They would not have that Job were it not for the SHAREOWNERS whose capital created the company that allowed the job to exist in the first place. The Owners of this company INVESTED THEIR MONEY into this company and took a risk that it would be profitable. If it was, then they would get a return on their investment. If the company was not profitable – then they would lose the money they invested. This is not slavery to the worker.

            Please go back to school and get a really education, but make sure it is not in one of the Progressive States where they teach that Sharowners are Slaveowners. They are people who create jobs for people who want to get off welfare and unemployment.

        Great Rob! How about you go ahead and give your FULL paycheck to help? That’s the lib progressive way, right? You DO get a paycheck, don’t you? Surely you aren’t one of the hogs at the feed trough, taking away deserved dollars from folks that REALLY could use a helping hand? You don’t get it! You libs are the greatest suckers in the world.

  • Howard Roark

    The Supreme Court was absolutely correct in its decision that Corporations also have free speech. The First Amendment says that, (Congress SHALL MAKE NO LAW ABRIDGING THE FREEDOM OF SPEECH.) you see it says NO LAW. that means that the Congress can not single out corporations and say that because they are not living things that they do not have free speach.

    And what about news papers. they are corporations. You probably noticed that Congress exemped news papers. could it be that the lame stream media has become the pals of the progressives.

Do not believe anything the media or Newt or Karl Rove tell you, all you need to see is that the establishment is nervous when they start to demonize common folks. By their rants against the TEA party and all the conservatives that have won their primaries, instead of reporting how unbelievable this is how these people won and that there is a more important revolution going on right under their noses. They try to find any dirt on these people to report as news, well I have NEWS for them all decent well respected people over our lives have said something that later could be turned negative. Since we are free thinkers this is as common as liberty, freedom, apple pie and dare I say Chevrolet (not anymore)! We will change the course not just this election cycle but for years to come, jump on all American Patriots there is room for all of us!

  • http://PersonalLibertyAlerts John Despard

    How can you dispute that McDonald’s and the rest of the fast food industry has not caused more than the 3,000 or so deaths attributed to the 911 hijackers. Through their greed and promotion (mainly aimed at children) they are much to blame for the unhealthy eating habits of most Americans. Not recognizing that fact is like freeing tobacco, alcohol and car industries from any responsibility for the deaths caused by their greed. Just because these companies are not violating laws in quite such an outrageous manner makes them no less guilty of deaths caused by them misleading the public and cutting corners on product safety than the ones who kill openly. I often think that where back in the old west people who poisoned a town’s water supply were considered criminals, now we equate it with progress and give them government contracts and thank them for providing jobs for us while buying bottled water to drink. The Bible says “Thou shalt not kill”. It doesn’t say it is okay to cause deaths in the pursuit of fortune where it is only a byproduct of your actions.

    • JeffH

      If you think those things are unhealthy, then don’t eat them. If you don’t want your kids hooked on them, don’t take them there. Seems simple enough to me. I enjoy a good burger once a month or so. Anyone who lets their kids get them more often shouldn’t be a parent. It is their fault – not the company that sells a product people like. Don’t worry about taking care of my kids. I can do it without your help … and do a much better job.

    The American conservatives and the Tea Party folks have the Dems and these progressive/liberal reeling, searching through their arsenal of rhetoric for something new. Everything they do or say has as much mold on it as a year old block of blue cheese and it stinks to high heaven.

    America has seen and heard it all by now. The more they talk, the more American patriots get pissed off.

        Anyways, your childish descriptions of Michael Moore and Bill Maher aside, I would say that this article is very much a case of the pot calling the kettle, black. Your beloved neo-cons, Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, and Rove (the rotund Rove…eh? See how easy that is?) should all be tried for war crimes, and should have to face the consequences of their actions. Their warmongering has left the nation’s economy in the proverbial sh*tter, and now Obama (our Black, Muslim saviour) has been left to clean up the mess. Not that he’s doing a great job of it, mind you. Still, it’s about time you clowns realized that there is no left or right anymore…there’s just us and them. And they are lining their pockets on our tax dollars, and laughing all the way to the bank, Republicants and Democrats alike.

        The other thing to keep in mind is that America started meddling in the Middle East just after World War Two, through the bumbling CIA. So-called ‘Terrorism’ in the modern sense, didn’t really start until the mid to late 70′s. To put it another way, if another country came into America…say, Canada…and through use of its bigger, more superior military (hypothetically speaking), started to impose its will upon America, in hopes of benefiting from America’s more vast natural resources (also hypothetical, obviously). After 25 years or so, you’d probably want to try to strike back at the invading forces, and/or their country in whatever way you could…in hopes of getting your message across. That message, of course, being ‘Get Out’…or maybe something a little more colorful.

        Anyways, thank you for your well wishes, and I shall tell the class you said hello. Please tell Rupert I said hello as well, thank you.

    I don’t like lies … from anyone. As a person mentioned a few years ago, people dislike lies more than they do murder. After all, a lie can kill as easily and ruins people. And that seems to be all I hear or see on television. Unless there are some pictures about it, they won’t tell the news anyway. (Why on earth would I enjoy watching the police chase someone around town for an hour or so?)

    The quickest way to get me to NOT watch something is for the person involved to lie. And Moore is a prime example of that. He tries to pass lies off as “documentaries”. He records truth – and mixes in enough lies to change it to something else. The first time I saw one of his lies, it went off and I’ve not watched anything of his since. I simply can’t understand those who watch his stuff except that they believe it might justify their own lies. The worst liars are those who lie to themselves.

    • Raggs

      I agree with you 100%… problem is we have an oprah whimpy audience that relies on the dreamworld utopia.

      The fact is most Americans do not want to know the truth because they are afraid of it… The lamestream media prey’s on that…

      Maybe it’s easy to believe something that is not true rather than searching for the truth?… After all obama was elected on lies.

    • Dogma-Free

      hahaha…if you want lies, then try watching FAUX ‘news’ sometime…and then check what they try to pass off as ‘facts’, against what REALLY happened. Then again, if the unthinking half of America is willing to believe them, then whose fault is it really?

    The so called progressives had to change their name from socialists to progressive because no one wanted anything to do with socialism.And progressives is just a smoke screen as well.They want to give alllll of Americas wealth to countries that are socialists because they are poor!And they want America to be just like those countries.So what they are really saying is they are jealous of Americans and don’t want them to have anything either.Just look at the way Americas rich live?Isn’t that what the progressives say about the so called rich in America?But Obama sure didn’t bow to a poor person,when he went to Arabia!He never said anything about how those sheeks live that make the rich over here look like poor ,desperate peons.And we send our heard earned money to muslims,but they don’t give one thin dime to anyone in their own countries.It is their money and they keep it all.Also Muslims don’t pay taxes in America because it is against their religion.It is like a fee to an idol or gambling or anyother excuse they can come up with.Anyone in their countries that is not a muslim has to pay taxes,and can’t be citizens,can’t vote ,can’t own land,and have to pay very big fees to own a business,that the government can come and take anytime they feel like it.It is not a great humanitarian country.And when we send money to these countries for emergencies or disasters,they don’t give any money to people that are not muslim.So now we have a president that wants us to favor them over here?Christians are killed,churches burnt and we should tolerate them here? Why?People in Mexico are poor,so we should give them social security from our own money,that is too broke for the people who paid the money?We can’t make a living for the whole world nor should we.This is our country,not Mexicans or Muslims or anyone else that feels mistreated in the world.If the Hollywood stars feel so sorry for them then let them live on their land,and take their money!But when Californias’ideas don’t work,and they tell us to be like them, then how smart do you have to be to see it doesn’t work!Now they are saying for the rest of us to bail out their stupid idealistic state.HELL NO!!!!!!They got themselves in the mess,so since we are so stupid and you are so smart,you figure out how to get out of it on your own!There is nothing in the Constitution that says you can’t be stupid,but there are laws that say we don’t have to give you our money when you are!The way this administration in the WH is going,is exactly like California went.They think the same way that the people running California thought.So who are the stupid people?Why the hell would we want to make the same mistakes with the rest of the country?Because they hate America and want it to fail! Capitalism does work,but they keep saying it doesn’t! Just because you keep saying it doesn’t make it true.America has been the wealthiest,freeist country in the world and they (the people who wnat all the power over us) can’t stand it.All you young people who are on this sight just remember we tried to warn you.Nothing good ever comes from socialism,never!It always leads to alot of people broke,poor and miserable,and alot of people murdered in the name of the greater good.And the people on the top live like sheeks!They will run everything in your life,everything!!!!!!They will tell you how much heat you have in your home,and it is never enough to keep you warm.They will tell you how long you can keep your lights on.Tehy will tell you how much food you can have,toilet paper,water,etc.You will never own a car because noone will have a car unless they work for the government.You will never own land or a house because the government will own everything.You will not be going to car races or concerts or the movies because there won’t be any! The only people who will live a good life will be the ones in government!You will not have a paycheck,the government will give you what they think you need. Forget about living in a home,you will live in croweded tentiments that will make the projects look like Disneyland.You may not even be allowed to live by yourself.They may have several families living together.You’re just really going to love it.NOT!!!!!

      Inflation is a hidden tax. The more things go up the more the government gets in taxes on the things. If you buy a shirt that costs $20, you will pay sales tax, depending upon the area. But if the price of the same shirt goes to $40, you still have one shirt but the government gets more money from you. So obviously prices should go up, right? And if your pay goes up, ditto. You pay more taxes – even if you can buy less with your extra pay.

        The government buys less too cause the cost of what they buy goes up as well. The economic key is that the money the government owes costs less to pay back and they were able to buy things when they were cheaper.

        I am not sure why the government even worries about it since they can just print paper (fiat) money and pay off the government loans with that.

        • 45caliber

          Since they don’t mind raising the tax or printing more money, the government buys whatever they want regardless of how high the cost goes.

      DaveH—Keep on coming with your right on words of wisdom… America needs to wake up and stop the free printing of the dollar which is not free. There is a price to pay for over printing…

    Great article, We’ve got the same idiots here who want to take in all the illegal immigrants the world wants to throw at us.
    Exactly the same agenda your “progressives” (haha) are foisting on you.
    It seems as if the world-wide Left organisations are determined to make us all easier to govern by bringing in migrants with very dissimilar views to the general world-view of the West, and they can profit from the resulting chaos.
    The extension of Government power over every aspect of our lives is also food for their ideology of big government control.
    At least there is now some movement towards trying to regain some of our lost freedoms.
    Strong border protection and the right to decide what sort of people migrate to our countries should be near the top of the agenda. Any government that allows mass illegal migration is failing its people.

      Pete – Props to your Prime Minister! He has the guts to stand up to the idiots! Wish the ones in OUR government were half the man he is. (No disrespect to the ladies intended).

    Has anyone ever tried to watch The View with Joy BeHar? Talk about a coupe full of hens trying to cluck at the same time. Bill Maher’s show is on par with Joy BeHar’s.

    Personally, I could care less if anyone is obese. For the most part, that is their choice, or they may have a health issue. No one is perfect. Nonetheless, I think a person should try to eat properly, and take care of themselves. I try to. But I like to binge on the pasta. My Mother weighed 225 pounds. I weigh 123 pounds- the most I have ever weighed in my entire life. I weighed 98 pounds when I married. I do not go to fast food joints-maybe an occasional steakburger from Steak & Shake. I saw on TV where a woman went to a fast food joint, got some chicken strips and one of the strips was the head of a chicken, battered and fried. That ended it for me. Years ago, I ate a hamburger from a fast food joint and there was a “screw” in the meat.
    The old saying–”You are what you eat” does not always hold true. I would like to point out that “thin” people can have diabetes and people that are thin also have heart attacks. Some of these ailments are hereditary.
    It never ceases to amaze me that each time my husband has been in the hospital, the majority of the nurses are huge. I have read numerous articles that say there are a lot of obese people in the US. I think some of the kids nowadays are obese because they sit around watching TV and playing their nintendos. Not enough outdoor exercise.

      Claire,
      My down fall is Quaker Steak & lube!!! OH, their burgers and rings are soooo good. They all have fast cars and motorcycles hanging on the ceilings!!! The 3/4 inch thick onion rings are brought to your table on an antenna! Their wings go all the way from cool ranch to sign a release to eat the atomic fire wings!! Good food!!

      • Claire

        JoeH– I am a pasta nut. The Olive Garden here in town is wonderful!! Plus the Pasta House. And pizza….yum.

        • http://?? Joe H.

          Claire,
          We had a place here called the spaghetti factory. Their pastas were worth the 14 mile drive to get to it!!! Unfortunately they closed!! I miss them SO much!!! Also Tony Roma’s rib joints!!! Dam! now I’m hungry and it’s too late to eat!!!

          • Claire

            JoeH–Today was my husband’s birthday. We went out to eat–to Alexanders here in town. Wondeful steaks. It was a wondeful meal. Bob is conked out in his chair downstairs. He sure enjoyed his steak. Now I am stuffed and ready to go to bed but I have dogs out, I have to stay up for awhile longer. We have a Spaghetti Shop here in town, it opened a number of years ago and it is good too. There are also a number of family-owned restaurants that are really good.

  • THINK ABOUT

    And so, what is your intelligent answer to words not spoken by Maher but O’Donnell, the only one you can look to on this one is the one who spoke the words herself. Don’t like getting caught in the headlights, facts are facts. Charge on about Maher and Moore and don’t forget Gingrich and Jumpin’ Yellin’ Rush.

  • Anthony

    Simply amazing, the things I read sometimes. Seriously!

    1. Great read, Mr. Crystal. I might adlib a thing or two, but let’s keep it as is.

    2. For those who are STILL committing “blind patriotism” for the current POTUS (?) You really don’t like using Search Engines to verify your thoughts. Quite transparent.

    3. It is NOT the President(s) who are doing these nasty things to our Country. They are just the foils… the puppets… who have decided to take a bribe from those in the background. I am referring to those that neither JeffH, nor Dogma-Free, gets to vote for. If you really did your homework… you’d wish this one item could be something that would change. Both of you! Well, all of you, actually.

    4. Spouting off about NEWS AGENCIES as if they have free will…
    Huh…. talk about the blind trying to create a new written language. WOW

    whoownsthenews.com – believe it

    5. As for who’s really in charge…? Let me ask you. Does money not rule? And, does it not extrapolate that those who control the money, therefore control the humans who need it…?

    Going deeper – it used to be a Rule (if not a Law) that for a Corporation to be formed (allowed by Congress), it had to prove what benefit it would be “to the People”. THIS IS REAL FACT.

    When John Rockefeller petitioned Delaware for the Right to create a Corporation, they repeatedly turned him down, over & over… Because he could not prove that his Corporation would benefit the People, BEFORE it would benefit him. Later on, the weak and corrupt in that State finally slipped off their horse and agreed to allow the Rockefeller Family to create the Corporation they wanted. And, the People benefitted NONE from that new Business. Instead, they paid.

    In turn – Rockefeller went to all of the other Money Men and got them ALL to stop competing with each other… getting them to agree that only the semblence of competition would keep the people blinded, while they got filthy rich… in a coroporate game that was then rigged completely…so much that NO ONE outside the inner circle would be allowed to buy or own Stock in that Corporation unless they became a part of the Family…. THIS IS A TRUE STORY.

    That Corporation is known as: THE FEDERAL RESERVE
    IT DOES NOT, NOR HAS IT EVER.. PAID ANY TAX OF ANY KIND SINCE IT WAS CREATED.

    I like Ben’s inclusion of McDonald’s. Those who are defending the status quo are blind to the deeper meaning of his inclusion of it.

    McDonald’s is a Corporation and it abides by the Rule described above.
    As far as how it might be killing off Americans? Watch FOOD, INC on YouTube.

    Fact – We lose more people to auto-accidents every day than we do from eating burgers and frys as McD’s. It’s the part that Voters never demand better from our Politicians on such homegrown issues, that’s the most telling part of all this nonsense.

    Mr. Crystal’s correct moreso than even he might know (on a certain level).

    Just because a Government claims an underground truth must be a conspiracy… must be one – don’t make it so. History is full of Societies who were destroyed by their own Leaders. Who says ours couldn’t suffer the same fate? Those who blindly defend, especially without valid proof… are the real criminals…. especially when they aid and abet the lose of human freedoms.

    Politicians are the puppets – not the Controllers.
    Since 1913 – this has been the case, whether you like it or not.
    Both sides of the Aisle are as responsible for the damage – no difference.

    The Script being written, so we Wag the Dog, is how those in Control push the falsehood that one Party is always seen as the bad guy…. and here’s where it actually gets eaay…..

    This Country was created as a REPUBLIC (if you can keep it – B. Franklin)
    A Republic (for which it stands) enables the rights of ALL MEN – not just some.

    A Democracy is totally based on the dominance of the stronger (nothing else)
    In K-6 logic – a democracy is based on MOB RULE

    If you notice, the Media never speaks the word: REPUBLIC
    On top of that, most CFR-owned Stations use Republican as a dirty word.
    This is by design, so as to indoctrinate the succeeding generations who won’t know any better, never having lived in a different light.

    The Media’s task is to sell you out – they don’t know you – they don’t care to know you – you are pestelance to them – a nuisance – walking stupidity – and their rhetoric says so…. to your face, every day. It doesn’t matter to them if you are a Lefty or a Righty – a liberal or a conservative. All they care about is the illusion that somehow, they will be on the exempt list – exempt from the coming totally scripted tragedy those who control the money want to see.

    You see – much like history has shown us – Dictators, Tyrants, People who have no need to answer to their Peoples…. always find it easier to eliminate a Society than it is to FEED it with the money they’ve hoarded away. Doesn’t matter if it’s Stalin or ROME itself. It’s in the History books.

    Maher & Moore … the M&M’s of being ridiculous, already have a temporoary free pass to be exempt from the suffering that’s about to happen. Of course, I’m betting even they don’t realize what they have in the bank is nowhere close to what they MUST HAVE to really be exempt….

    One trend forecaster puts that amount as $25-billion.

    If you don’t have that much already in the bank?
    Then… You ARE… everyone else!

    Keep em coming, Mr. Crystal. Right-o!

    • Christin

      Anthony,
      Great post and response to Ben Crystal’s Article.
      I enjoyed both, gentlemen.

    • Vicki

      So lets see. A corporation is an association of people to do something to acquire wealth. Why do they need governments permission? Does that not violate the 1st amendment. Of course the 1st is only a restriction on Congress. but still.

      Now as to the Federal (not) reserve the problem seems to be the crony capitalism inherent in haveing a single corporation authorized by the government to print and control money. That is a problem of that specific corporation not corporations in general.

      Notice that I am ignoring the detail (for the moment) that corporations are a specific legal entity rather than being just an association of people. This might well be the detail you are working on.

  • john

    We need to start a cultural revolution..since when did non talent and garbage gain such a foothold for entertainment.We should all reject the movies,television,and pretty much all the crap they call music..whats with all these singing prostitutes (Madonna,Spears,Beyonce,Aguilera,Katie Perry,and now Hannah Montana)as for comedians..if I want to laugh I listen to Obama as he pulls the wool over his adoring crowds eyes..and the funniest thing about it is that he believes his own garbage.Unless we change ourselves and stand up and say enough..then nothing will change…can you actually go without watching or listening to the shit put out today?If we did and hit them where it hurts financially..we could force change and rid urselves of such lame people like Al Franken,Bill Maher,Jeanine Garafolo,Alec Baldwin and the king of them all Sean Penn the traitor.

    All politicians are creations of the media and puppets of the rich elite. Whether republican, democrat, green, libertarian or whatever they all have their own interest at heart and say anything to get or stay in office. No one party has a corner on hypocrisy and you calling the democrats hypocrites or democrats calling republicans hypocrites is akin to the pot calling the kettle black.

  • RicSeag

    More ‘pot-calling-kettle’ invective from yet another pit-bull right-wing loonie …….

    Maybe he didn’t like what Moore and Maher had to say, but he didn’t have anything to say about the truth or fiction of what they had to say – only ad hominem invective.

    Granted they don’t have the ‘market appeal’ of Limbaugh and Hannity, but Maher and Moore are no more rat-dung screeders than Limbaugh, Hannity, Beck, and now Crystal.

    The only difference is that Crystal will never work his way high enough up the conservo-tainment ladder to carry Beck’s trash out to the curb.
