you're joking, right? you do realise how many people have cable or satellite tv these days as well as the overwhelming majority of people (in various polls) who say they get their news from fox news instead of abc, nbc, cbs, npr, etc.

Randi Rhoads sometimes uses strong language, but i don't remember her using violent language, or intimating violence to be used against President GW Bush.

and on a different note we in the USA could learn a thing or two from the Scandinavians.

ANd try to get it that certain forms of Socialism do not equal Authoriarian Totalitarianism, or Stalinist Communism etc

antiram-you grew up in the old USSR? wow.

I don't know where you grew up there..but during the awful Cold War years..if you were in Moscow, Leningrad .... did you all have to do Air Raid siren drills?

I line in NYC and can't remember whether it was once a month or even more often the sirens go off.
Awful, terrifying stuff! Hearing them all over the city!

ANd I remmeber ( cept I don't remember when i guess n the last 80's) I noticed we didn't hear the sirens any more! it wasn't like there was an "annoucement" > "we are no longer going to test the Emergency Sirens" .

Scientology seems fairly unique among religions by copyrighting its text and trying to prevent dissemination of its own materials.

Now we have become familiar with well, this. From recent articles connecting some of Lougher's views to the writings of David Wynn Miller who has very....particular ideas on grammar:

Quote:
IS =SINGULAR-VERB, ARE = PLURAL-VERB ~2-~JANUARY-~2000-NOW-TIME

~1 FOR THE :HOME OF THESE FACTS ARE WITH THESE CLAIMS BY THIS PLENIPOTENTIARY-JUDGE'S-CORRECT-SENTENCE-STRUCTURE-COMMUNICATION-SYNTAX-LANGUAGE(C.-S.-S.-C.-S.-L.)

~2 FOR THE YEAR~1988~APRIL~6 OF THIS ORIGINAL-COPYRIGHT-COPYCLAIM IS WITH THIS CLAIM OF THIS PLENIPOTENIARY-JUDGE: David-Wynn: Miller WITH THE COVERY/CLOSURE/LIVERY OF THE CORRECT-MATHEMATICAL-COMMUNICATION-SYNTAX-LANGUAGE: FRONTWARDS-AND-BACKWARDS.

~3 FOR THIS STYLE OF THE SYNTAX-WRITINGS ARE WITH THESE CLAIMS OF THESE CERTIFICATIONS OF THE SYNTAX-LANGUAGES AND: QUANTUM-MATH-COMMUNICATION-SYNTAX WITH THE FRONT-WARDS AND BACKWARDS-MEANINGS OF THESE POSITIONS OF THESE [PREPOSITION]=POSITION WITH THESE FACTS-AS-FACTS AND NOW-TIME-AS-NOW-TIME OF THESE SAME TERMS, DUTIES, MEANINGS, CAUSES WITH THE NOW-TIME. [SAME-MEANINGS FOR THE BRIDGE IS OVER THE RIVER. FOR THE RIVER IS UNDER THE BRIDGE. ABOVE-BELOW, UP-DOWN, IN-OUT, ON-OFF]
I see this and think of evolution. Instead of evangelicals of any interest trying to one-up another to have the most persuasive and cogent rhetoric, we have this dead end. If only no one would ever have been given reason to know who he is. My eyeballs hate this man.

Hey, there's a novel idea. News networks should try this sometime. Hell, everyone should try this.

I'm just going to leave this snippet from today's "Daily Show" here. Once again, a comedian sounds more sane than the supposed professionals he's supposed to be mocking:

Arizona Shootings Reaction - The Daily Show with Jon Stewart - 01/10/11 - Video Clip | Comedy Central

This whole thing is just tragic. Tragic for the victims, tragic for the shooter (who was mentally disturbed, and belonged in a psych ward), just completely tragic.

Jon Stewart nails it again

It's sad that a comedian does it better than everyone else in the media.

Maybe the solution is get rid of all politicians and let the comedians run the show for awhile

I grew up in one of the other Eastern Euro countries. We did have to do Air Raid siren drills - the elementary school I went to had its own bunker and we'd practice going down there many times. I remember really long, narrow dark concrete halls with army-style bunks on either side, just rows and rows of them.

Some of the greatest hits from her and other left-wing radio:

Referencing President Bush in a Godfather-esque scenario, "Like Fredo, somebody ought to take him out fishing and *imitating gunshot fire*" - Randi Rhodes

"A spoiled child is telling us our Social Security isn't safe anymore, so he is going to fix it for us. Well here's your answer your ungrateful whelp: *sound of gunfire* Just try it, you little bastard *sound of gun being cocked*" - Randi Rhodes

"Drudge? Somebody ought to wrap a strong Republican entrail around his neck and hoist him up about six feet in the air and watch him bounce." - Mike Malloy

"Fuck God-Damned Joe the God-Damned Motherfucking Plumber! I want Joe the Motherfucking Plumber dead!" - Charles Karol Bouley

"And you have no idea, in my bones, in my very soul! In my heart! I want to kick Fox's ass! I want to drive them into the ground! I want to spike the ball! I want to kick 'em in the teeth on the way back to the huddle! And then I want to turn around and lift my leg on 'em! Because that's all they're worth!" -Ed Schultz

Charming, no? Anyone believing this doesn't exist on the left is only fooling themselves.

*starts rant*

I have always said that the second amendment MUST be revoked and modified. NO ONE outside of law enforcement and the military ...should be allowed to carry a gun. I believe we wouldn't even be talking about this case if congress would get off their asses and do your country a service.

Prohibition was instated as a good thing - which turned out to be a bad thing because it gave birth to the gangster era and organized crime thrived during those years. Congress finally repealed it for the good of the nation - why can't they do the same with the stupid second amendment which has cost hundreds of millions of lives in the 200 or so years since it's inception?

Something to think about....before the next 10 year old boy kills his mother.

*rant over*

Thanks for letting me vent.......

I've never heard of Randi Rhodes, all this time I thought you were talking about Ozzy's guitarist.

She's a shock jock, nothing more, nothing less. Big difference between her and Glenn or her Rush.

Does it exist on the left? Sure. Does it exist in the mainstream? Not nearly as much...

But it needs to disappear from all sides.

Imagine if the tables were turned, and Sarah Palin said the exact same thing about President Obama...

why don't you go back and actually listen to that interview and then tell me about it. it was a play on the cliche "kill two birds with one stone" in the context of an interview with Bill Maher. it was understood as a joke then by EVERYONE not just me, and it actually NEVER MADE THE NEWS because it was a joke.

as opposed to Palin and her gunsights and "retreat/reload" language which has been commented on EXTENSIVELY both now and AT THE TIME as well as by CONGRESSPERSON GIFFORDS HERSELF.

most Americans have no idea who these people are. none of them were elected to anything.

EVERYONE knows who Sarah Palin is.
