Liberal Alters – Main-Stream Media

November 2008 was the liberal, main-stream media’s crowning glory as they were complicit in hoisting an unknown, untested, inexperienced person upon the American people.  The information about Obama’s past was out there, but was not covered in the lame-stream media who were too busy and too left-leaning to offer a balanced view of Senator Obama.  Ultimately it is the fault of the American voters who cast their ballots for Obama/Biden and relied on the media’s fairy tale about the first black president.  Not only was the press fawning over Obama, but they threw former favorite Hillary under the bus to support Barack and pushed very hard for Republican “maverick” John McCain to be the GOP nominee.  McCain was the candidate long before I even had the chance to cast my primary vote. 

Hey There Georgie Boy

One of the keystone techniques of “journalists” (I use quotes as I believe that most news readers do not deserve this title and by enclosing it in quotes it becomes a sort of derisive label) is the loaded question.  They love to thinly veil their viewpoint or deepest wishes by asking loaded questions; questions that are often longer than the answers.  “Journalist” George Stephanopoulos’ “thought-provoking” (there are those quotation marks again) questions are often funny, but in a sad way.  Is there any doubt that Georgie Boy is anything but a progressive shill? 

Enjoy this little sampling of Georie’s questions:

True American Heroes – Carrie Prejean

The Miss USA Pageant is not high on the list of anyone’s must see television.  It seems like a kind of antiquated show from the past.  Many probably did not know that it was even still on the air.  My only real memory of the contest was when long-time host Bert Parks sang the theme song as that year’s winner took her victory lap.  Actually thanks to Glenn Beck this morning, I learned that there is actually a Miss America Pageant (that’s the one Bert Parks hosted) and Miss USA Pageant (Trump’s version).

Everything Before “But” Is Bull

Over the years, there have been only a few phrases or sayings that have stuck with me.  We all have learned the Golden Rule from our parents and that is a basic way to you’re your life.  What I am talking about are phrases that stick in my head and make me hesitate when I say something often forcing me to reword what I was about to say.

I first heard one of these phrases on one of my favorite talk shows, Quinn and Rose in the Morning.  One of my favorite quotes from Jim Quinn is “everything before “but” is bull.”  When you speak and use the word “but” to qualify the statement, that qualification is nonsense, untrue, a lie, or bull.
