I like the pirate ship analogy.
I watched the video and wondered why all those white teenagers were acting up and running amuck. Oh, the marauding youth turned out to be hoards of black teens subsidized by our tax dollars. Sorry, only absent parents, or rather irresponsible baby’s mamas are to blame along with government policies that reward reckless procreation with monetary subsidies for more reckless procreation.
Andrew Holmes made false claims regarding the parents of the out-of-control throng by saying that the parents need to check their child if they’ve been arrested. Come on Andrew, these feral beasts have no parents–the government went to great lengths to make sure of that! I think every news channel had a mic in this guy’s face. Another example of the new’s soft touch regarding minorities, especially the black ones, and crime.
“How could anyone with a sense of pride participate in a meaningless parade of nothingness,” quipped Alex, leader and brainchild of a marauding four man team in the U.K. ”When we have a thirst for the ulta-violent, we fancy a romp without diluting the experience with more participants. We viddy a mark, take pleasure in drawing some blood, reap some copper, and after feeling rather fagged and shagged we head over to the Korova Milk Bar for some milk plus. Me and my droogies have standards unlike those savage blokes in Chicago.
President Obama blamed the Bush administration for the violence in Chicago in late March. His impassioned speech addressed the core issues regarding the flash mobs:
“I’m sure people would like to blame the warm weather or the racial makeup of the melee participants. One might even go as far as to blame the hard working layabout single mothers who bore these ragging beasts out of wedlock without ever having any intention to wed the sperm downer. No explanation can best expose the genesis of these violent outbreaks than the former Bush administration that failed to properly subsidize the degenerate, the unwilling, and the sloth. I’m here to change that and I’m changing it now. But lets focus on gay marriage and gun control; pay no attention to the debt, illegal aliens, and endless spending. We get through this by borrowing our way to prosperity.”
Can it really be that bad? There is no fiscal discipline in government and the lack of restraint grows over time. The media doesn’t address it, politicians ignore it, and the dollar is going to be victim once the dust finally settles. The video espouses keen prescience as to what is going to happen and narrates the story well, but produces a vacuous video with no visual continuity, no charts and data, and no convincing conclusion. It just sounds scary because there is a lot of truth to certain points that are made throughout the video. The dollar is going to suffer given the current monetary policies of the U.S. government. Economic laws, like gravity, will win out in the end. Hyperinflation and other troublesome phenomena will occur just like in Argentina, Mexico, and other third world countries. It’s inevitable. I’m not so sure about the conspiracy regarding the “One World Government” since who really thinks this world can exist with one government. We have 50 states and those governments don’t really see eye to eye. Now factor in the rest of the world.
Nothing good is going to come out of this administration and this country will suffer the consequences for years to come. The unknown turns out to be a frightening dark place, but time will tell. If it gets really bad here, it’s going to be even worse elsewhere.
White people, in their natural habitat. – USA TODAY Sports
Who are the happiest people when the Bulls snap the Heat’s losing streak? White people.
From there, author Bill Hanstock – whose Twitter profile boasts that he’s an editor and contributor to this website – wrote, “On Wednesday night, the Chicago Bulls halted the impressive winning streak of the Miami Heat at 27 games. Luckily, a gaggle of exceedingly white dudes had courtside seats (because white people looooooove courtside seats) and treated us to the above picture.”
Next on the agenda were zoomed in shots of the men in the picture above with similarly disgraceful commentary such as:
“This guy is pretty white, I guess.”
“Hey, it’s the white Lewis Black.”
“Just two white guys, enjoying each others’ company, wearing their finest Cherokee-brand shirts.”
“If Wallace Shawn were an even whiter Gollum, you’d STILL have to ramp several notches up the White Guy Meter to arrive at … THIS.”
The swine said
The sports commentary regarding the race of the spectators only demonstrates the writer’s own envy, bigotry, and cowardice. The observation and ideas in that blog were meant for readers with the huge chip on their shoulder. If one substituted “black” for “white” in the commentary, the result would be an uproar and charges of racism; the writer would automatically be suspended or fired.
When are the race peddlers ever going to get over themselves? There is a different standard for Caucasians and other races. What makes it interesting centers on the fact that the standard is higher. Expectations for Caucasians are higher and for that reason alone interesting analysis and commentary appear in the lopsided world of the media. That is why the race of an offender is censored from the news given the prevalence of black crime. The gatekeepers of information begrudgingly allow the race to be published when it may assist in the apprehension of a criminal, but that isn’t always the case as well.
I remember hearing the term “the soft bigotry of low expectations” many years ago in Bush ’43′s speeches. That term basically explains the cognitive dissonance surrounding the wide array of double standards in our society. Why do we have a Black Caucus in Washington? A white caucus on its face seems ridiculous so why tolerate the darker one? The mantras of multiculturalism and diversity demand illogical and dangerous contradictions like this while simultaneously dumbing-down standards (and expectations) so more protected minorities can reap the benefits without having to adopt the work ethic and values that naturally create a path to success.
On Thursday, while looking wistfully back at Obama’s first four years, NBC News accidentally did some actual reporting. In a First Read article that opened with the question, “Is the nation better off than it was four years ago,” senior political director, Mark Murray, did something that neither he, nor NBC News, nor the mainstream media was willing to do during this last presidential campaign: report on Obama’s record.

Via Facebook, a great vivid example of the Liberal media bias at work. Cindy Sheehan's son died in Iraq serving his country and because there was a Republican in the White House, she became a media darling. Charles Woods' son Tyrone died when Al Qaeda terrorists attacked the U.S.
Beyond their leaking of highly classified information, the media are a real threat to security because they flat-out know:
• Public employee unions have decimated the finances of an expanding number of cities, counties and states.
• Poverty is rising, unemployment is accelerating, median household incomes have fallen and Obama has created a debt poison-pill that will cripple our economic future.
• Teacher unions are destroying the futures of poor and at-risk children, but the media look the other way to protect one of the largest special interests of the Democrat Party.
• Obama has no foreign policy, and his ineptitude, along with that of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, was exposed with the planned terrorist killings of U.S. diplomats in Libya — murders the president dismissed as “bumps in the road.”
Yet the media choose to attack Romney for rightfully calling on the president and Clinton to stop their campaign of appeasement and apology.
• “Green” initiatives such as Solyndra are paybacks to major donors, outright frauds or alternative energy “solutions” with one real purpose: to give liberals false talking-points while sucking hundreds of billions more out of taxpayers’ bank accounts.
The list goes on, but suffice it to say a case can be made that the mainstream media represent a clear and present danger to our well-being.
They also represent a clear and present danger to Gov. Romney’s chances for election.
Even in the age of the Internet, blogs, cable shows and alternative news, I maintain that upwards of 80% of Americans still get 80% of their “news” from the left-leaning mainstream media.
This is the moment Ann Coulter wound Whoopi Goldberg up to breaking point as she appeared on The View on Thursday to promote her controversial new book.
Coulter took less than 30 seconds to get under the host’s skin, confidently claiming: ‘I write these books because I try to correct things people believe that are just false.’
Armed with copies of Mugged, she argued that America’s ‘legacy of slavery’ has lead to civil rights only ‘belonging to blacks’, much to Goldberg’s disgust.
What is depressing about this show is the waste of air time that is given to these mindless women who blew their chance to ask intelligent questions of Ann. If Ms. Coulter is wrong, then prove it. Humiliate her by exposing the big lie she writes about; kill her slowly by shedding light on whatever chicanery she conjured up in her book. Well, that won’t happen on The View. Liberals can’t win on the battle field of ideas where logic and reason rule. They prefer to make noise, bathe in hyperbole, and discuss anything but the topic while they project their own flaws onto a conservative. Whoopi is simply intolerant and her colleagues are every bit as ignorant. It is amazing how the public will actually watch a show like this; it’s an intellectually dishonest and insults the intelligence of the viewer. Did Ann really need the publicity that bad? Now go on Amazon and order her book!
The press is melting; circulation and ads sales at most legacy outlets are steadily falling, and the public trusts the product less and ignores it more. In a recent Gallup poll a record 60 percent of respondents replied “not very much” or “not at all” when asked how much they trusted the news media to tell the truth fully and fairly.
