No one's saying we're not in a crisis...it's just that Beck's explanation match those of a monkey on '___'.
Oh, and I'm pretty sure I'll still be laughing in 6mo (especially if Beck's show continues), I got a great job, make good money, and have a loving family/friends. Unless I get hit by a bus, I should be fine
In 2004, the National Annenberg Election Survey found that Fox News viewers were the most confused about current events, while viewers of "The Daily Show" were among the best informed news consumers in the country. Comedy Central, relying on data from Nielsen Media Research, also found that Stewart's audience not only knew more about current events, but were far better educated than Bill O'Reilly's audience.
Three years later, the Pew Research Study published a report showing that "viewers of the Daily Show and the Colbert Report have the highest knowledge of national and international affairs, while Fox News viewers rank nearly dead last."

The dollar's going to collapse, that's for sure. But it's not going to be because of communists, Marxists, Hitlers, or Weimar republics. It's going to be because of us. You. Me. All of us. We didn't do enough to stop the thieves and criminals who control our government.
1. Abolition of property in land and application of all rents of land to public purposes.
2. A heavy progressive or graduated income tax.
5. Centralisation of credit in the hands of the state, by means of a national bank with State capital and an exclusive monopoly.
6. Centralisation of the means of communication and transport in the hands of the State.
7. Extension of factories and instruments of production owned by the State; the bringing into cultivation of waste-lands, and the improvement of the soil generally in accordance with a common plan.
10. Free education for all children in public schools. Abolition of children’s factory labour in its present form. Combination of education with industrial production, &c, &c.
Fascism should more appropriately be called Corporatism because it is a merger of state and corporate power.
It is the State which educates its citizens in civic virtue, gives them a consciousness of their mission and welds them into unity.
The keystone of the Fascist doctrine is its conception of the State, of its essence, its functions, and its aims. For Fascism the State is absolute, individuals and groups relative.
War is to man what maternity is to a woman. From a philosophical and doctrinal viewpoint, I do not believe in perpetual peace.
Anti-individualistic, the Fascist conception of life stresses the importance of the State and accepts the individual only in so far as his interests coincide with those of the State
No individuals or groups (political parties, cultural associations, economic unions, social classes) outside the State (15). Fascism is therefore opposed to Socialism to which unity within the State (which amalgamates classes into a single economic and ethical reality) is unknown, and which sees in history nothing but the class struggle. Fascism is likewise opposed to trade unionism as a class weapon. But when brought within the orbit of the State, Fascism recognizes the real needs which gave rise to socialism and trade unionism, giving them due weight in the guild or corporative system in which divergent interests are coordinated and harmonized in the unity of the State
Democrats took over General Motors
Democrats implemented centrally planned interest rates.
Democrats implemented subsidized housing markets.
Democrats took over the airlines
Democrats took over Amtrak
Democrats cartelized businesses through the Chamber of Commerce
Democrats restricted competition and gave large market players a huge advantage through the creation of the EPA and FDA
Democrats routinely shakedown major corporations by threating intrusive regulations if they industry players don't play ball (fund pet projects or donate to political campaigns).
Democrats restricted private oil drilling and cartelized the domestic oil markets through regulation, preventing startup oil producers from competing and walled off HUGE portions of our oil supply in the national reserve.
The list goes on and on and on.
