Why Glenn Beck is Dangerous to America..

If I had children, I'd probably put parental locks on the entire FOX news network.

One thing I find particularly troubling is the fact that the FCC allows talking heads like Glenn Beck to spew his hatred, his racism, his ignorance and his blatant stupidity on national television nightly. I don't get it.

He perpetuates lies, he incites violence and hate crimes and stirs up some serious anti government sentiment. None of what he states is factual, and he plays to a crowd who's educational numbers look like Bush's last days in office. It's downright scary.

I'm not so sure Glenn Beck even has a college education. I really think he should be taken off the air, because his show is nothing but an extreme right wing propaganda machine which is reminiscent of Nazi era hate speech.

To Bill or not to Bill

There's been a lot of debate regarding the state of the current health care legislation that won the Senate democrats approval yesterday. No public option, the fact that current health benefits would be taxed and a mandate for all Americans to buy insurance regardless. Not so kosher.

Although these 3 major issues make the bill less than...most of the bill is a step in the right direction. It limits power to big health insurance companies, it strips down big PHARMA spending, and it brings in more people under the blanket of medicare then we have now.

No, it's certainly not the bill I would like to see, but anything at this point is a good start. Health care has been a 60+ year debate, and we've seen absolutely nothing come of it, ever. This bill starts the actual foundation to get the ball rolling, and that's a good thing.

This legislation can always be modified later.

Lou Dobbs No More?

Lou Dobbs has made a stunning, surprising, and much needed announcement on last night's broadcast of his CNN show. He will be leaving the network, stating that his opinions are no longer welcome. That they aren't.

Dobbs is most known for his outspoken rhetoric on Mexicans, often inciting some pretty fierce conversation against immigration. Or as he likes to say, "Illegals". Mr Dobbs was allegedly given a choice from the CEO of the CNN network; tone it down, or hit the road.

I guess he choose the ladder. It's unclear where Dobbs will land next, although I have a suspicion FOX has an opening, right after that psychotic wack job, Glenn Beck.

Step One Has Passed

The Helathcare Reform Act has passed the house, and is now on it's way to a senate vote. Hold your breath. It just made the house, passing by 220 votes. 215 are needed. However you feel about this bill, it's a step in the right direction, and if passed in the senate, will be modified for the better over time.

You can read the entire bill here:

Still, We Saw a Victory

Tuesday's elections results showed us two things. One, that far right conservative wack jobs don't do well on election day. We saw this movie before a few times. Palin, Thompson, and so on. We were able to take NY'S 23rd pretty comfortably without a hitch.

Second, Democrats who gain power MUST, and I repeat, MUST get something accomplished. Corozine had some great ideas, but nothing was ever produced. I think he felt he could coast on blue state pride alone, thus assuming most would favor the Democrat in the voting booth when it came down to the final hour. Not so. He ran a horrible campaign, not to mention the fact that he made the stupidest choice of all when he referred to Christie's weight in a campaign ad.

I don't care what party you're in, this is just a cocky, ignorant, pathetic attempt to win an election, and it turns people off. Grow up. In retrospect, I don't feel so sorry for Corozine, although I am sorry there's now a Republican in power because of Corozine's arrogance.
