He was a true soldier of the ‘new media’ (The Drudge Report, The National Review, Real Clear Politics, etc.) —a media that I saw a demand for when trying to decide which career to pursue after my formal education. Little did I know, that many amazing people around the World were already doing their part to address the unrelenting biased perspective that taints every news story that comes from the ‘old media’ (i.e. MSNBC, CNN, NY Times, etc.). One of the most prominent of these people was Andrew Breitbart. He was 43. He left behind a loving family. He had so much left to offer the American People—so much more to say. We will miss him dearly. Godspeed Andrew.
Debbie Wasserman Schultz, and the Curious Case of Evolution
Jim Byrd, a conservative political contributor for Examiner.com, published an article on January 30, 2012 that satisfied my political apprehension for the day. Mr. Byrd very eloquently reminded readers that sometimes it is better to fight liberalism with unrelenting humor and hyperbole than to try to fight fire with fire.
In the case of Debbie Wasserman Shultz–just generally, I am often left either speechless or loud-spoken when watching her network news interviews. I either clench my fists and cry a little inside or rant and rave at the television with no affect but to annoy my girlfriend.
Upon reading Jim Byrd’s article, “Debbie Wasserman Shultz, and the Curious Case of Evolution,” (Byrd,) I was set at ease and felt encouraged to thank Mr. Byrd accordingly. Here is my comment on the article’s webpage:
Jim, I really enjoyed your article. Sometimes a little sarcasm and good-natured humor is the only way to keep from going crazy. As I imagine many of your readers similarly experience, I cannot keep my teeth from grinding, my fists from clenching, and my stoic indifference at bay when watching a Debbie Wasserman Shultz interview–talking points and all. I usually end up yelling some objection at the television in protest–to no effect but to annoy my girlfriend. Thank you for prescribing the remedy: good ol’ fashioned hyperbole.
On the eve of what is going to be one of the upcoming 2012 Presidential Race likely to be plagued by accusatory and negative political rhetorical from all political perspectives, I often wonder how certain Congressmen and Women get away with, if not untrue, certainly contrived and deceitful talking points. One particular Congresswomen sticks out in my mind as a habitual violator of what one would consider trustworthy politicking. That would of course be Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the U.S. Representative for Florida’s 20th congressional district, serving since 2005 and the Democratic National Committee Chairwomen. She is the congressional cheerleader for Democratic policies, liberal and humanitarian Utopianism (see Mark Levin’s “Ameritopia”), and most prominently Presidential Incumbent, Barack Obama.
A compelling ten minute documentary describing the herculean effort of evacuating lower Manhattan on 9/11:
Who is responsible for Ms. Adams’ plight?
Does it matter that the Constitution does not preclude the State or Federal Government from helping homeless people? Is Ms. Adams right? Do American taxpayers owe her money to take care of her children?
What is your opinion?
An interesting read.
My fellow Readers, I need to get your thoughts on something. I have been having a tough time understanding the events of the UC Davis pepper spray incident that occurred to our horror several days ago.
The backlash has been loud and passionate. From the liberal quads of the progressive Californian University, UC Davis, to the airwaves, twitter feeds and blogs, people have reviewed the video of the pepper spray incident that has gone viral. Continue reading
Shortly after writing the previous post about my peculiar domain name (algeropportunity.wordpress.com), I elected to fix something that has been bothering me: ‘algeropportunity’ was not my first choice. Continue reading
The debate in Washington taking place behind closed doors, in the supercomittee, is one that all Americans should be part of. What happened to Obama’s promise for transparency? Instead of the debate regarding whether to cut spending, raise taxes or impose both on the American People taking place in the open forum called Congress, Congress chose this summer to shirk their responsibilities by agreeing to a short term funding of the National Budget in lieu of ordering (possibly politically destructive) spending cuts.
Congress decided to leave the planning to a ‘supercomittee’. A group of representatives of Republicans and Democrats, etc. are debating behind closed doors the future of US fiscal policy. What a sham.
The House and Senate were elected by the People as representatives. For representatives to elect representatives to do the tough decision making behind closed doors is a blatant disregard for Congress’ responsibilities. These Congressmen and Congresswomen absconded the tough job of cutting programs—many with humanitarian causes, by putting the responsibility on the supercomittee allowing them to be dissatisfied and to comment without taking any responsibility for the outcome. When will our elected officials do what is right for America and make tough decisions without regard for their political survival? What happened to honor, patriotism, and knowing and doing what is right: holding Country over Personal Agenda? Continue reading
Well it is time to be reminded of that thing that never seems to effect individuals directly: the US Debt. Is it true? Does the massive US Debt, which now exceeds $15 TRILLION, mean anything to you and me?
Well, some might argue that pragmatically it does not affect normal Americans living their daily lives. I disagree.
The debt is a simple matter. In fact, this topic is so simple that a fourth grade student could understand its complexities. In recent history, the United States Federal Government spends more money than it takes in. Simple as that. Continue reading
