And the media wonders why the average American, whether they attended a TEA Party or not, becomes offended by the media.
For instance, here’s Janeane Garofalo foaming at the mouth playing the race card:
Let me make it perfectly clear here and now: I am not a racist, and I support the premise behind the TEA Parties. I don’t care if the person in the White House is black, white, red, or green – they all have an equal opportunity to screw it up or to serve the country’s best interests without trampling on the Constitution or burdening the taxpayer with un-Godly debt in the future.
Next is a video of Susan Roesgen (mentioned in Part 1) with comments from Hugh Hughwitt and Dennis Miller:
Journalism? Reporting? HAH!! Not when it contradicts the “reporter’s” or “journalist’s” opinion or the “official” party line of the network they represent. If this were not so, then Ms. Roesgen would have been let go immediately.
Perhaps Ms. Garofalo and Ms. Roesgen should view the next video. It not only describes what the TEA Party protests were about, but shows how news should be reported.
Finally, here’s a video from Thomas Paine (played by Bob Basso):
While I do not agree with some of Mr. Paine/Basso points, he does bring up several issues that I do agree with. A couple of these are that our elected representative do not represent us, the people, and vote themselves perks and raises that they, quite frankly, do not deserve.
Personally, I think the better course of action by Congress in dealing with the current economic crisis was not to borrow Billions of Future Taxpayer dollars & redistribute around to various places (too slow and too expensive). Rather, grant every every American Taxpayer the next year without paying an income tax. Investments and consumer spending would increase accordingly, and raise the economy out of the doldrums we are in. Isn’t that what the “stimulus bill” is supposed to do?
