The imaginative Steve King (R-IA) says that gay marriage is a "purely socialistic concept."
Have you noticed how conservatives and Republicans see socialistic threats, like, everywhere? Damn odd, if you ask me.
Here's Rep. King in the House explaining how President Barack Obama is the "star of ACORN, the lead, chief organizer."
King is a wild and crazy guy, huh?
"Would you favor or oppose the government offering everyone a government administered health insurance plan -- something like the Medicare coverage that people 65 and older get -- that would compete with private health insurance plans?"
Malkin yesterday on President Obama's UN speech....
"He (Obama) doesn't like this country very much." Obama is "the great Appeaser and the Groveler in Chief."
"..he (Obama) has solidified his place as the weakest of weak leaders of modern American history.....They laugh at us. He is a laughingstock."
Later, Obama presided over the UN Security Council unanimously passing a resolution "that “urges” countries to put conditions on their nuclear exports, so that international inspectors would be authorized to continue monitoring the use of some nuclear materials even if a country withdrew from the nonproliferation pact."
Yep, Michelle and Sean,.....laughingstock.
Next up....George W Bush's former speech writer Michael Gerson. Once again, the AB Journal insisted on printing Gerson's column. Gerson says that internet discourse in America is kind of like the Nazis using radio in the 1930's. Heil, Michael, you assh*le.
"The absolute freedom of the medium paradoxically encourages authoritarian impulses to intimidate and silence others."
Little known info....
The Fox Network did not cover President Barack Obama's speech before the joint session of Congress. The Fox cable outlet, I understand, did cover it....but not the broadcast network. It's the first time a major broadcaster, using public airwaves, refused to televise a presidential address before Congress.
So, according to another Beacon blurb from the Dallas Morning News today, President Obama should go on Fox and be interviewed by the blackout boyz.
"...what should concern the president more is that Fox delivers a devoted audience that doesn't always hear from the president unfiltered."
Just in case you have been confused by the flaming wingnuttery recently over the non-profit group ACORN, Rachel Maddow had an excellent piece on the whole thing last night. And the imaginative one I referred to at the top makes an appearance too. It's worth watching.....but look out for those pesky facts flying....
Finally.....Glenn Greenwald lays out the rotted landscape in the mainstream media and the halls of Washington.
The Villagers have a very ugly habit of chastising and punishing the weak and vulnerable while praising and rewarding the corrupt and the powerful. ACORN is simply the latest example.
