We are launching a new feature here at NonStopSite Blog. A quick tour of interesting stories of the week with short comments.
With many U.S. newspapers struggling to survive, a Democratic senator on Tuesday introduced a bill to help them by allowing newspaper companies to restructure as nonprofits with a variety of tax breaks.
Another bright idea from a democRAT. democRATs love to use tax-payer money to fund failure. Why bother to pretend that these papers are independent news organizations anyway? Just establish a government newspaper that will disseminate the official Obama news and propaganda on a daily basis. Evidently free people do not want to pay for that rubbish so force every household to subscribe for a fee.
When we look through this Leninist prism, the behavior of today's American mainstream media becomes quite comprehensible. Where conservatives see dishonesty, double standards, and deception, media practitioners see themselves as fulfilling their role in consolidating Party power in pursuit of a socialist utopia. They have fundamentally different ideas of the media's role in society.
This is what I have been saying all along. This is what I said when I reviewed Bernard Goldberg's books years ago:
It is a disappointment! The catchphrase on the back of the book is "BIAS identified the problem. ARROGANCE offers a solution". Unfortunately, both claims are wrong. Bernard Goldberg's first book Bias: A CBS Insider Exposes How the Media Distort the News made the case that media elites are biased but they don't even know it. It is just a cultural thing. Evidently Goldberg thought his book will wake these media elites up, make them be more conscious of their own biases so they can be more balanced. Well... As we all know it did not quite work that way. Now Goldberg thinks that the media elites are in denial. He thinks they are so arrogant they won't listen to any constructive criticism. He even comes up with a twelve step process just like the one AA has for their recovery.
The truth of the matter is we are not dealing with an arrogant, close-minded media that is subconsciously biased in certain issues. It is crystal clear in the examples Goldberg gives in his books. I can not believe he can not bring himself to admit this: It is a flat-out partisan media. It is a media that does more than taking sides on the issues. It is a media that pushes an agenda. It is an activist media.
I think Bernard Goldberg is the one who is in denial. He is starting to sound like an apologist for the media. He just needs to come to terms with the fact that the mainstream media has just become a propaganda machine for liberal democrats. It is not because of a cultural bias or arrogance. It is by design on purpose. It is being done under the guise of journalism.
JONATHON PORRITT, one of Gordon Brown’s leading green advisers, is to warn that Britain must drastically reduce its population if it is to build a sustainable society.
Isn't it amazing that the ideas that are repeatedly proven wrong being pushed by ideologues under the guise of science. It is not about science or saving the planet, it is about destroying the Western Civilization. There is a huge population explosion going in Britain and in Europe and it is not the British or Europeans. It is the muslim population living in Britain and Europe. Does this guy mention that? No! He probably would advocate mass suicide by British to save the planet but he would not have the guts to talk about muslim invasion of his own country. Well, it serves his purpose folks. He would not mind if muslims started blowing themselves up killing hundreds of British since it would help with his imaginary population problem. This is how warped these guys' minds are.
"Because they saw it as a threat to their political power, Democrats in Washington appear willing to extinguish the dreams of a few thousand poor kids to protect their political base." Teachers' unions are a vital part of that base, many of whose members fear competition. Not all of them. Randi Weingarten, who is also head of New York's United Federation of Teachers, has started UFT charter schools in that state. But, like Obama, she is silent about stripping these OSP kids of their alternatives. And the largest teachers union, the National Education Association, urged Congress to kill the D.C. program.
Hypocrisy is a way of life for democRATs so I won't waste my breath.
Christopher Horner's new book, called "Red Hot Lies: How Global Warming Alarmists Use Threats, Fraud and Deception to Keep You Misinformed," gives many, many examples of how they not only refuse to debate, but are malicious against anyone who dares to contradict their view.
This is one of the reasons democRATs want to keep kids in public schools: Brainwash them. It starts in kindergarten and continues all the way to the college. Check your kids' assignments and you will find propaganda about non-existent global warming. global warming is a cult religion folks... It is not science. It is a violent religion.
Before its portfolio of bad loans helped trigger the current housing crisis, mortgage giant Freddie Mac was the focus of a major accounting scandal that led to a management shake-up, huge fines and scalding condemnation of passive directors by a top federal regulator.
One of those allegedly asleep-at-the-switch board members was Chicago's Rahm Emanuel–now chief of staff to President Barack Obama–who made at least $320,000 for a 14-month stint at Freddie Mac that required little effort.
This is one of the resons democRATs want to have control of our banks and financial institutions. easy, well paying jobs for them. What the hell this partisan hack did to earn that much money? These are the same assholes complain about executive pay. Most executives get where they are after years of education, years of sacrifice, years of risk taking and deserve to be paid what they get paid. What is shit-head's qualifications? What talent do Daschle and Rahm have to justify their pay. There is only one reason folks: Influence peddling. We need to get democRATs out of our businesses. we have this economic problem not because of free market capitalism but exactly because of democRATs' meddling with it.
Watch senator Gregg slamming Obama's budget:
U.S. President Barack Obama’s 2010 budget proposal contains about $20 billion in tax incentives for clean-energy programs. In Spain, where wind turbines provided 11 percent of power demand last year, generators earn rates as much as 11 times more for renewable energy compared with burning fossil fuels.
The premiums paid for solar, biomass, wave and wind power - - which are charged to consumers in their bills -- translated into a $774,000 cost for each Spanish “green job” created since 2000, said Gabriel Calzada, an economics professor at the university and author of the report.
“The loss of jobs could be greater if you account for the amount of lost industry that moves out of the country due to higher energy prices,” he said in an interview.
Obama and socialists delusional ideas will cost us dearly folks. Are you ready for this? You may have not understood that you were committing suicide when you voted for this charming black guy to be the firts black POTUS, but how far are you willing to go pushing this affirmative action craziness?
