You Can Learn A Lot From The Headlines

His ratings are up. His employer is defending his obvious falsehoods about his career. Thus:

“Fox News Doesn’t Care If Bill O’Reilly Is A Liar”

Who thought they would? He has made them all rich. And speaking of Billo, here is some typical Billo logic:

“O’Reilly: Amanpour Is Wrong About Netanyahu Because She Was Raised In Iran”

And speaking of twisted logic, this is how conservatives are courting Hispanics:

“Mark Levin Mocks Rep. Luis Gutiérrez’s Accent, Calls Him The ‘Self Appointed Martin Luther King Of Latinos'”

This is how Republicans are courting black folks:

“GOP Leaders To Skip Selma Event”

And speaking of the anniversary of Selma, this man remembers:

“’I shouldn’t have to feel bad about being white’: N.J. deli owner serves racism with sandwiches, calls for White History Month”

Bon appétit!

Oh, get this. Republicans have finally come up with a solution, a final solution, to homelessness:

“GOP Lawmaker Suggests Wolves Could Help Get Rid Of Homeless People”

I suppose that is one way to do it. And speaking of ravenous wolves, yes, West Virginia, there is a War on Women:

“West Virginia Legislature Upholds 20-Week Abortion Ban Over Governor’s Veto”

And a domestic Holy War:

“Fox News Pundit: Muslim Holidays Discriminate Against Christians”

And a war on working people:

“Walker Wins Another War With Unions”

Nah, that is just a battle. The war has yet to be decided.

To end this little post, let’s play a game of “guess which political party.” I’ll start with an easy one. What political party is this guy from:

“Ben Carson Apologizes For Saying Prison Makes People Gay”

Okay, okay. That one was easy. Here’s a slightly harder one:

“Senator Who Used Snowball To ‘Disprove’ Climate Change Cites Scripture As Backup”

I know. Too easy. Try this one:

“Kris Kobach: ‘Not A Huge Jump’ To Think Obama Could Ban Criminal Prosecution Of Black People”

No use trying to stump you. It’s just not that hard to figure out. The conservative crezzies aren’t very subtle.

And speaking of the crezzies, there is always the founder and editor of the popular right-wing website WorldNetDaily:

“Joseph Farah Is ‘Just Asking’: Will Obama Actually Leave Office In January 2017?”

And I’m just asking, “Why should he?”

Here’s an insightful and Christianly column written by a conservative think tanker:

“End Obamacare, and people could die. That’s okay.”

Sure, that’s okay. Praise God.

In any case, speaking of ObamaCare, I do want to give credit to right-wingers for their bold predictions over the years. They said an America-hating President Obama would destroy the economy and jobs with, among other things, his ObamaCare fiasco. Except:

“Obamacare: Medicaid sign-ups rise, uninsured rate lower”

“U.S. Economy Adds 295,000 jobs, Unemployment falls to 5.5 %”

You gotta love it.

To end, this is what destroying the economy and jobs looks like:

  1. Any comment I could make is pointless. You’ve covered the issue.

    But notice that I did comment……so?

  2. Speaking of headlines, there has been a strange absence in the headlines over the past year or so of the once-common term, “financial cliff”. It was accompanied by shrill voices predicting economic doom and predictions that Obama was destroying America. Austerity was the recommended solution – tighten your belts! But something odd happened – the stock market has gone crazy and is setting new, all-time records and employment has rebounded even as the budget deficit has steadily declined each year.

    But never fear. I heard on Rachael Maddow’s show last night that the debt ceiling is again drawing nigh. The papers should all take notice and order extra ink. It’ll be Armageddon all over again!
