Why America Sucks Ass

Here is a quote from the new Fox show "The Five," which I guess is replacing that round-headed fool named Glenn Beck. The new hose, Eric Bolling, made a big splash today by putting his ignorance right up front: "America was certainly safe between 2000 and 2008," he said. "I don't remember any attacks on American soil during that period of time." Nobody on the panel challenged this comment.

Nobody on the panel challenged this comment. That right there is why America sucks ass, because some fool like Eric Bolling can come on television and spread lies like they're peanut butter. And no one says, "Hey that fool is lying like a rug." I believe it was that Tea Party favorite Joseph Goebbels who once said, "If you repeat a lie often enough, it becomes the truth."

And then there is this quote, which has been attributed to that untried war criminal Karl Rove: The aide said that guys like me were "in what we call the reality-based community," which he defined as people who "believe that solutions emerge from your judicious study of discernible reality." ... "That's not the way the world really works anymore," he continued. "We're an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you're studying that reality—judiciously, as you will—we'll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that's how things will sort out. We're history's actors…and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do."

And those wacky right-wingers accuse folks on the left of being P.C. police and over-sensitive. I wouldn't take anything seriously though, that was uttered by a habitual liar. Someone who wears their religion on their sleeve, but keeps their mistress in hiding. Republicans have proved themselves to be lying hypocrites again and again, and they seem to have no qualms about squashing the working poor in order to fill their own coffers a little more.
