Fox News: Hannity

January 30, 2009

Hannity by himself does not uphold Fox News “Fair and Balanced” Slogan.

I would like to thank my friend Judel who is linked on this site under the name Liberty and gave me the idea to talk about this. So you realize the gravity of that statement, let me say, I am a big fan of Hannity and Fox news. However, without Colmes, the “Hannity” segment is not fair and balanced. Although, I have to say it probably wasn’t fair before, as Hannity had much more power on the segment. Now though, there is nothing to cover up their bias. As of now Fox news is naked.

What should they do?

Well they have 2 choices in my mind.

1.

They bring another liberal on the show to take Colmes place. This will “even it out” and make their slogan “somewhat” true.

2.

They somehow exclude there “slogan” from this segment. They finally admit that they are conservatively biased and get on with their lives.

Outcome

Either way, Fox news will still stay conservatively biased. One way though they can at least hide under the illusion that they aren’t. I think doing so is somewhat insulting. There biased, the other media is biased, they need to get off there high chair and realize that overall they’re not much better. Just get on with their lives and stop lying.

The Stimulus Plan

January 30, 2009
Stimulus Payment Information
“This year, taxpayers will receive an Economic Stimulus Payment.
This is a very exciting new program that I will explain using the Q and A
format:
Q. What is an Economic Stimulus Payment?
A. It is money that the federal government will send to taxpayers.
Q. Where will the government get this money?
A. >From taxpayers.
Q. So the government is giving me back my own money?
Q. Are you rich?
A. Yes.
A. Then no.
Q. What if I’m poor?
A. Then you get a smidgen back.
Q. What is the purpose of this payment?
A. The plan is that you will use the money to purchase a high-definition TV
set,  thus stimulating the economy.
Q. But isn’t that stimulating the economy of China ?
A. Shut up.
Below is some helpful advice on how to best help the US economy by spending
your stimulus check wisely:
If you spend that money at Wal-Mart, all the money will go to China .
If you spend it on gasoline it will go to the Arabs.
If you purchase a computer it will go to India .
If you purchase fruit and vegetables it will go to Mexico , Honduras , and
Guatemala (unless you buy organic).
If you buy a car it will go to Japan .
If you purchase useless crap it will go to Taiwan .
And none of it will help the American economy.
We need to keep that money here in America . You can keep the money in
America by spending it at yard sales, going to a baseball game, or spend it
on prostitutes, beer, and wine (domestic ONLY), or tattoos, since those are
the only businesses still in the US.

Global Warming=Lie

January 27, 2009

“WHAT! No it can’t be true, the media, Al Gore, and…and…that other guy…said that global warming exist! Why am I giving Al Gore money? This is an outrage!”

The Crackdown

Now I know that’s an overreaction and exaggeration of what would happen, but the premise is true. According to the world’s top 650 environmentalists who met in Poznan, Poland in December’s U.N. Global Warming conference the world is no longer warming. Global temperatures had peaked in 1998 and has been falling ever since. Most dramitcally in 2007 and 2008 when temperatures became as low as 1980 levels. Dr. David Gee, Chairman of International Geographical Congress, was even quoted to say “For how many years must the planet cool before we begin to understand that the planet is not warming?” (http://www.mlive.com/opinion/flint/index.ssf/2009/01/its_time_to_pray_for_global_wa.html)

So what does this mean?

 Well first you have to look at all of the effects of the last 9 years. It turns out that artic ice is back to 1979 levels and antartic ice is up 5% more than previous levels. So I guess the world won’t flood. *Sigh* I was looking forward to that pool party. Dr. Kunihiko, Chancellor of Japan’s Institute of Science and Technology, was quoted saying “CO2 emissions make absolutely no difference one way or the other … every scientist knows this, but it doesn’t pay to say so.” Wait, did he just say Carbon dioxide  emissions have no effect? WHAT?!? What did Al Gore win the Nobel Prize for then? I tell you, as of now, it’s a scam. Don’t be conned into this hoax.

If global warming can have bad effects, what about global cooling?

Well, according to a recent study released by the Russian Government based off core samples Russia’s Vostok Station in Antarctica the Earth is on the verge of another Ice Age. To make it clear though, I don’t believe one bit of it. First where going to burn, now where going to freeze. As far as I can see, this new theory of “Global Cooling” holds no more merit than Global Warming. It’ll get colder, it’ll get warmer. Very rarely we’ll get a couple Ice Ages and a couple worldwide “Anti-Ice Ages”. Species will die, humans will adapt, life goes on. We’re obviously not having that big of an effect on the environment so I’m just getting tired of it.

What do we do now?

Maybe now we finally realize that earth goes through it’s own natural cycles. Let’s just accept it and move on. Let the earth do what it does and move on with our own lives. With all the other problems out there, focusing so much time and effort on something we can’t affect is not going to help us in the long run.

Atheists vs. Christians

January 22, 2009

That’s right, I’m talking about the “no-touchy” subject. You’re not suppose to talk about this at school, with other adults, or strangers but you can talk about it here. I’m going to go through what Christians do, what atheists do, why they do things, and my own opinion on the subject. Before I start just let me say that I am a Methodist. Here I go.

What are they?

What truly is a Christian? Well that one’s simple. It’s a person who believes in God and Jesus as his savior and follows the teachings of the bible. What is an atheist? Well that can be tricky. The simple answer would be to say someone who doesn’t believe in God. That’s true, but more specifically most “atheist” are actually Agnostic-atheist. They just use the term “atheist” as a general title. This meaning that they’ll believe in God when the proof is there for them to see. In other words, they just don’t know and think that as of now their is no proof for one to exist.

Why do they argue?

They both argue (most of the time) to “enlighten” the other person. The Christian thinks that he’ll bring another person to God and the atheist thinks he’ll stop someone from wasting precious time and effort. Both pretty noble ideals right? Then why do the arguments get so vicious? Well, it’s for a couple reasons I believe. One, both stubbornly think they’re right but neither can proof that they are. This is what makes the arguments go back and forth with no one getting anywhere. Two, when arguing about this subject the debators normally get worked up emotionally and make irrational claims and discredit their whole argument.

What do they argue?

Christians argue that God exists. Atheist (I’m talking about the general Agnostic-atheist) aren’t usually arguing that God doesn’t exists, just that they have no proof that he exists. That’s another problem with this argument. Christians generally overlook the fact of what they are actually arguing. Think about, if I’m arguing Football is better than baseball and you’re arguing apples are better than oranges we’re not really getting anywhere are we?

The Stereotypical Christian

I’m going to try and knock around some of the things the general Atheist and I don’t like about the stereotypical Christian. I probably won’t do it justice because of my bias but I’ll give it a try. One annoying thing that Christian’s will use as “proof” is “Oh! Look at how great and wonderful this world is. There’s no way this could’ve been done randomly.” I believe that, but to say that’s proof is nonsense. Christians also tend to look down upon atheists. They seem to go “Oh! You poor dears. I’ll save you and redeem you for God.” I’ll give you a hint, I’m betting the atheist don’t give a hoot. Stop acting like you’re better than them, Christians, because if you truly believe in God you know that he made us all equal and that he loves us all the same in his eyes. Acting like you’re superior than him is NOT okay.

The Stereotypical Atheist

This I can probably do a little better. Let me first say right off that I’m talking what I generally see, I’m sure there are plenty of exceptions. The first and foremost thing that annoys me is that Atheists always try to act like they know the Bible better than a Christian does. Some grew up Christians so they have a legitimate claim here, but most do not, and it annoys the heck out of me. What they’ll do is say “Oh! What about the Bible which says (insert bible passage here). It says blah blah blah is good. That’s crazy!” The passage/verse will be out of context and be warped to something it didn’t say. Second annoying argument from atheist is “What about evolution? I thought God made all the animals a couple thousand years ago?” Evolution does not disprove God. There are a million possibilities for how things were meant in Genesis and I’m not going to go through him here.

How can this end?

Arguing is perfectly fine. If you want to argue this (lke me) then you’re happy to go at anytime. However, some people dislike all the argumentation and competition between the two groups. If you don’t want to argue it anymore, it’s simple, just stop. Why can’t either side learn that no matter what they argue with, no matter what they say, no matter what evidence they have, you’re not going to get anywhere. That’s what happens when you try to prove the unprovable.

 

NObama

January 16, 2009

In this article I’m going to go through what I and other people think about Obama.

Well as you can see I don’t really like Obama, however it appears that around 52% of the nation would disagree with me on that. Let me list the reasons I think that Obama got voted in.

Reasons Obama is Prez-to-be:

Uneducated Voters:

I’m talking about the people out there that just gobble down all the information the media spits out. The media is liberally biased so the uneducated, generally poorer people,  just take what they say as the truth and follow them blindly.  This section also goes for the people with HUGE misconceptions of what the president can and will do. A lot like this women here who believes that she won’t have to pay her mortgage or gas bill anymore(http://chicagoagainstobama.wordpress.com/2008/10/31/hope-obama-will-pay-my-mortgage-and-pay-for-my-gas/).

Anti-Racism-

That’s right, I said the “R” word. I believe that one of the main reasons that Obama won was because of his race. He got 96% of the african-american vote! When other ethnicities like caucasians are going almost 50-50 you know something else is going on. He also got 67% of the latino vote. Now this is somewhat reasonable however if you look how much McCain helped with illegal immigration, border defence, and other immigration laws you’d have seen that he had done a lot more for the latino population.

Bush:

There it is, the “B” word. This is one of the biggest reasons that Obama was elected. It’s because Bush is a republican and since many people are upset with him they didn’t want to vote in another Republican.

A Catchy Slogan:

“Change you can believe in.” How many of us have heard that slogan before? What does it even mean? Apparently Obama is going to change things. How? The president doesn’t have the power to fix everything. Even if he could change things all by himself, couldn’t change be bad? That’s right, listen up kool-aid drinkers. CHANGE CAN BE BAD! Well I’ve said it, let’s see what happens.

Reasons to NOT like Obama:

Shady Connections:

1. Tony Rezko
2. Rev. Jeremiah Wright
3. Bill Ayers
4. Rashid Khalidi
5. Nadhmi Auchi
6. Louis Farrakhan
7. Father Pfleger
8. Emil Jones
9. Rod Blagojevich
10. Todd Stroger

On this list there are crazy preachers, proven terrorist, suspected terrorist, and communist supporters. His own cousin (who he’s been in contact with) lives in Africa by the name of Raila Odinga. He is an anti-european, anti-chistian, terrorist. He’s burned down homes of Christians and leads a militant group that is very similar to all the other terrorist groups in the Middle East. Now just because he’s been in with “bad” people doesn’t mean that Obama is bad. However,  the chances are that he knew what some of these people were up too and decided to stay in contact with them anyway.

Lack of Experience:

He’s been in the Senate for only 4 years and he’s running for president. I don’t know about you, but I want someone that will know a little more about the political world.

Political Idealogy:

I just plain don’t agree with his views and don’t think that a lot of his ideas will work. Some of his ideas that he says will help certain things will really make them worse. This was shown in the “Average Joe” incident.

He’s the Lead Sheep:

In other words he’s the sheep that if he walks off a cliff the rest will run right after him. He’s got too many blind followers which I think is dangerous. He’s “brainwashed” them with propoganda and has them doing whatever he wants them to do. This video could explain how this happened…(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s3_jh2dO78U).

I could go on and on about this issue but the points I wanted to make have been made so that’s all I’ll write down right now.
