Hey monkey shit (GA),

That guy (JS) is the funniest thing I have seen from tv land in a long time.
Anyway, who was the Fox News guy sneeringly referring to the President as "The Anointed One"? Having become desensitized to it, I don't think Americans realize just how bizarre it is to have big media goading the watchers against the President in such a direct manner. To talk against factually against his policies and leadership is one thing, but that sneering is playing the deep emotional hand in a dangerous way. For non-American's, seeing that kind of thing (infrequently, as Fox in uncommon outside of the States) is like stepping onto another planet.

^^^ Seriously some of my Swiss friends have expressed a little concern with what the hell is going on over here. Makes us look like a bunch of racist hicks....
They all think it started with Bush but they are young.
Calling your fairly elected president "The Anoited One" is not patriotic and does not make America great, period.Education must be the answer, we've tried ignorance and it doesn't work! Wait, nevermind, when you see a liberal using science to advance an idea...grab your wallet and your freedom and run.

You don't seem to get it. This type of thing always erodes democracy and freedom, always. To attack his policies, sure. To misrepresent and instill hate by praying on peoples hidden fears and prejudices, not great.Education must be the answer, we've tried ignorance and it doesn't work! Wait, nevermind, when you see a liberal using science to advance an idea...grab your wallet and your freedom and run.

Still you aren't getting it. Everytime in history that you get the kind of demogogery rises up, it means less freedom, more totalitarianism. Recent examples in US history are the “Red Scare” and McCarthyism.
The term is also now used more generally to describe reckless, unsubstantiated accusations, as well as demagogic attacks on the character or patriotism of political adversaries.
Yeah claims that Obama is a Kenyan, Muslim, Communist are all pretty well substantiated...Education must be the answer, we've tried ignorance and it doesn't work! Wait, nevermind, when you see a liberal using science to advance an idea...grab your wallet and your freedom and run.

Ever heard of opinion shows dopes? Every cable network has it. They also edit clips too. Shocker.
Turn the channel dopes, or take a valium before watching.I still call it The Jake.

"Our enemies are innovative and resourceful, and so are we. They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people, and neither do we." —Washington, D.C., Aug. 5, 2004
But if you meant that the media was mean to Bush and Cheney, maybe they were a little critical, but can you blame them? And did they call him snide names like "the Anoited One". Granted sounds like Rather was pretty off with that memo about Bush going AWOL I think it was. I wasn't in the country, but yeah that pisses me off.

Just for America's sake, sob, sob, I will spoon-feed it to you. Sit in your high chair and put on your bib, here it comes: Faux News is the America's most trusted and watched NEWS SOURCE, you fucking retard. Therein lies the outrage when a "news" channel makes shit up to cram their politics down the throats of those of us that are stupid enough to swallow hook, line and sinker.

Didnt watch it
Your taxes are going up.. government is growing larger, with its own deficit quadrupling.. Anyone who would deny this is out of touch or just had too much of the powdery drink mix.

Maybe you got confused with "my rights" and "what is right". I have the right to protest at peoples funerals but that doesn't make it right.

"taxes will go up substantially next year...for everyone".
What does Obama say in the rest of the clip that disproves that? Nothing.
He just states it as a fact, which it is... but then blames the fact on Bush.
Funny thing is, He's the President now and he has a Democratic Congress. If Obama wanted that statement to be false, it's 100% in the Dems hands to make it so.
Is a law passed to eliminate the expiration of tax cuts for anyone? No. So, right now, today, the Dems are just playing politics with tax cut talk and doing no such thing.
You do know that if the dems, by some miracle, hold on to the Senate and or House, there will be no middle tax tax cut right? You do know that Obama might veto any tax cuts the Repubs send to him right?
The Dems are only talking about extending the tax cuts to the middle class to try to get re-elected. After the election we'll be informed that we can't afford it...You DO know that, RIGHT?

That means you have to put up with drivel and demogogery.
Freedom means letting the dumbest most racist fuck say what he wants to say and insuring that he has that right.
Freedom is a real bitch, don't you agree?
