Trickle…Yes MSM It’s Starting!

leaky_faucetEarlier in the month in my posting, Groundswell, I provided a case that there is a true groundswell of opposition to excessive government.  I will admit that it started as more of a anti-liberal Democrat movement, but the ranks have been joined by many others.  I believe that this groundswell has turned into a trickle (this is a positive development) as we are seeing the main stream media starting to open up and do their jobs although still to a limited extent.

I believe, and we should remember that this is a gathering storm against politicians of all party affiliations.

South Park Conservatives

How are God and Barack Obama similar…Neither has a birth certificate

How is God different than Barack Obama…Obama gets better press coverage

How is God different than Barack Obama…God does not think he is Obama

How is God different than Barack Obama…Liberals love Obama

How is God different than Barack Obama…God asks for only 10% of your money

How is God different than Barack Obama…God’s plan to save us is actually written down for people to read.

True American Hero – Charles Krauthammer

One of my favorite newscasters is Fox News’ Brit Hume and Special Report was a frequent place for me to get my “Fair and Balanced” news.  Within that newscast Brit usually had three journalists who discussed current events as the “Fox All-Star” panel.  The panel always offered balanced opinions which in the eyes of the Main Stream Media (MSM) made it look conservative.  Funny how perspective can skew your vision and make you miss the obvious.

A Frog As A Metaphor

A “FROG” that constantly changes colour is being worshipped as a GOD in by the Main Stream Media (MSM).  Hundreds of curious followers flock to network television every day to pray and ask for miracles and handouts.  None of the country’s MSM desire to study the rainbow frog.  But alternative media keeps the creature in a glass house and under a spotlight after finding it while it ran for office out of Chicago. 

Alternative media said: “Our one problem is that this frog does not appear to listen to reason. I keep trying to feed it information, data and proof, but it doesn’t eat anything. I don’t know what else to give it.”

Vitriol (vit – ree – all)

Vitriol is defined as:

“Bitterly abusive feeling or expression, language expressing bitterness and hatred.”

Synonyms:  insult, revilement, invective, vilification, or abuse

Quotable:

“Abuse a man unjustly, and you will make friends for him..”

                                                                                   Edgar Watson Howe

Can you use it in a sentence?

The frequent vitriol displayed by many liberals must indicate a basic insecurity in their beliefs, intelligence, policies, and positions.

Can you give me an example?

Cooper Should Make a 360 and “Come Out of the Closet”

The mainstream media (“MSM”) showed their true stripes again during their coverage of the hundreds of Tea Parties held yesterday.  When confronted with a true grass-roots effort to protest excessive taxation and what is turning into an ever intrusive federal government, the MSM fell back on their typical, tired playbook.  They tried to diminish the efforts of the planners and attendees like the elitists they are.

Over the years, Anderson Cooper had seemed to be different, but we probably saw the real Cooper yesterday.  During his coverage of the tea parties and in response to a statement from David Gergen about the Republicans needing to “find their voice,” Cooper made the smug, off-color statement:
