That usually is not a good way to convey a message... However, it would have been funny to see her get pelted with tea bags!

She is not there to participate, just report. If I recall correctly, Fox News attended liberal evens this past election cycle, and of course, their were anti-fox sentiments from some liberals at these evens. Yet fox continued to show professionalism all throughout the political cycle.

Don't forget that it was CNN that struck deals with Saddam Hussein and Fidel Castro that allowed the dictators to censor and control the news that come out of the CNN offices in those countries.

So, since I know this, why would I trust anything that CNN reports?

Communist News Network says it all. when it is a giant liberal protest, cnn calls it "a peaceful get together of people protesting a republican idea" although the protests actually consist of major violence and damage.... but when its a protest against Jesus Christ, the son of god "obama", then the protesters are called "right wing extremists with a hate for obama"

One of the guys who is posting on another thread is calling the protestors trouble makers.

I was at the Atlanta rally, not one act of violence. Not one act of civil dissobedience, other than J-walking.

Sorry for the double post.

Anyway, I have not seen one news story that any acts of violence occured at any of the Tea Parties!

That is just amazing.

I don't really see how the people can be freaking out about the "big government" Obama hasn't even been in office for 3 months, and as for the protests about too much government spending people are right, but what can the government cut certainly not peoples entitlements, people want money to be able to go out and spend but when the Gov tries to give it to them they want the gov to stop spending so much when they are trying to help our standards of living?? Why couldn't the issue of pork spending be brought up before so many people started struggling?

In my opinion people are just scared and needed something to protest to feel like they are using their civil service to the full potential

The problems we have today didn't start when Obama was elected, it has just finally come to the boiling point. And people didn't speak up until it affected them. That's usually how it works.

As for things that could be cut, how about that $4,545,000 for wood utilization research for starters. I'd say that over the last few thousand years we have figured out how to utilize wood.
There is so much money being spent on pet projects it's ridiculous. This site has a pretty extensive list of things congress has been putting in the bills they have been passing that are nothing more than pet projects that goes back almost 20 years.

Wow, some folks totally missed my point...and then called me ignorant.

That's the thing - we're smart you're stupid, you're smart i'm stupid. I'm blue, you're red, you're red, I'm blue.

I'm sitting at home, and my husband turns on Fox news, and WHO is speaking?
Joe the Plumber.

And I can't speak for you, and you can't speak for me, but I'd never show up where Joe the Plumber is being a spokeman - FOX picked him. Fox picked a lot of republicans to show.

I didn't see any signs of diversity. No brown faces, no black faces...well, one black photographer.

No matter what it was or it wasn't - what did it look like to ME? What did it look like to MOST interested democrats?
Republican Convention II, the remix.

And I don't want to be there, with Mr. Joe The Plumber, that isn't a plumber, or whatever, call ME ignorant or not.

It is clear - to my IGNORANT MIND - that the media is trying very well, to direct this and turn it into what THEY want it to be.

ya i agree most pork sux but some is good and the other thing is that not all the pork gets financed in the end it just gets thrown into the bill so congressmen have something to show their constituents in the next election. And the probs started 8 yrs ago i know that but i doubt people are mad about bush making the government too big

This has nothing to do with Bush or Obama. The problem started over 30 years ago and has continued.

It is really funny how everyone colors the current problems with their own political biases. For years I have heard how President Reagan doubled the deficit while he was in office. Those same people will deny that Jimmy Carter doubled the deficit while he was in office as well.

Fast forward to the current day and the same arguments are heard. Bush doubled the deficit, while they deny that Obama doubled it in 2 months!

Put all that aside and realize that it is your money, your kid's money, and your grandkid's money that is being spent and your grandkid's who will be enslaved by this current level of government spending.

When you look at it like that, then you get mad. That is what this issue is about, standing up and yelling enough!


Don't you want to do that? If not, then why are you on a blog?

What all of you saw in the clip is the MSN trying to maintain the right/left illusion it makes no difference if you vote or not the entire system is rigged the elite will make sure that the agenda will be pushed through look at the Governor of Texas Rick Perry he vetoed a bill that would have put a stop to the Trans-Texas highway he has been to the meetings of the Builderberg group he's no supporter of sates rights and neither is Faux and CNN and all the others.

Well speaking as a person who was actually there, there were plenty of people who were there who were black, brown, red, white, etc.

You have to realize that the camera men can only shoot from certain vantage points, and you can only focus on the first 2 or 3 rows.

That being said, I watched the Fox coverage after I returned from the rally, and I counted several dozen blacks in the crowd. So...I don't know what you were watching.

I would like to ask however, if you consider the opinions of the thousands of white folks there as being invalid?

If she had went over there and done her job like she was supposed to do she would not have gotten the reaction that she did.

She was unprofessional and gave no resemblance of a reporter, while she is on the job she is supposed to be nonbiased which she definately was not.

Her job was to get out there and report the news, talk to the people, ask questions and actually allow them to give an answer.

She was too busy defending the stimulus package to actually do her job properly, and she was very condescending while she was doing that.

The media spin doesn't get any more blatant. Fox has done it too in hijacking the movement for it's own agenda. It's not just about the taxes. It's about the loss of liberty. So the real, important message gets lost in the noise. Distorted the truth just like the big media want. Turned it into left-right bs. It's sad we'll never be able to come together to stop the takeover until it's too late.

The fact that people in this thread are debating about which media agency is more evil and which party is pushing what proves they've already won.

Divide and conquer America... ... ... again.

They did the same thing to you in the election.

Make friends turn on each other over politics and the media so the sheep keep at each others throats and not the throat of the ones pulling the strings.

Until you learn that Democrat and Republican are both bad things for your country, and are both working to keep the serfs pacified while they rape your nation this same kind of petty bickering will continue.

Although you do seem to make "some" good points Socialism is a failed system of government in any part of the world so lets please leave that where it lays, in the grave.

Capitalism really isn't a problem when you have responsible people and government there to keep the "robber barons" in check.

The US Government got a reasonably good handle on this with the anti-trust laws.

en.wikipedia.org...

And the people organized labor unions to combat unfair labor practices. And yes, I know they were formed under Socialist movements in the US. But try telling that to a Democrat or member of a Union, they will try and kill you rather than accept history.

en.wikipedia.org...

The point being that Capitalism in America worked out fine for many years and even caused this country to become what it is today. It is just the fact that the Government has allowed themselves to become too closely concerned with the ups and downs of a company and the "contributions" that are given by them. This way they don't make them take an actual stake in the country itself, they allow corporations to rape the country.

Likewise the people have become complacent and will not risk what many people before them did in order to gain better wages and working conditions. So it is partly the people, government, and corporations. Not the "form of Government" that is the issue in this particular instance.

And I leave you this from one of our wise men.

"The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not."
-President Thomas Jefferson

I really don't understand what is the problem with Joe the plumber being at a tea party ? This event was about way more than one person being, or not being there.

What i really don't understand though is why you bring up the fact that you seemed to see no diversity ? You have already stated that what you saw was on the tv, which means you were not at a tea party. So how can you possibly say that there was no diversity if you could not possibly see the whole crowd ? And what exactly does the diversity of the crowd have to do with the message behind the event ?

And how do you know what it looked like to MOST democrats, did you take a poll, are you their official spokesperson?

I find it a bit odd that those on the left such as this reporter seem to be disturbed by the mans assertion that Obama is a Fascist.

They also seem to be quite disturbed by the recent announcements that there are some that wish him to fail "due to his policy."


Wasn't it not too long ago (less that 4 months) that these same sort of liberals openly called for the failure of President Bush's Iraq policies, and openly calling him a Fascist. They even openly called for his out rite failure as a President and called him far worse than a simple Fascist.

Now believe me when I say that I'm no supporter of Bush's policies (not that they hold relevance any longer) but the point needed to be made that it was fine and dandy when it was the left, dog piling on Bush and calling for his disastrous downfall.

But, there are a few descenters (and maybe hardliners that are crossing a line) and the left can't take what they dished out for so many years?????


Now now, what's fair is fair.

Personally I can't stand either of the Presidents (old or new). I'm an Independent Conservative. And neither one of them is Independent nor Conservative.

But I should say that what's good for the goose (well you know the rest).
