gun rights insanity

It would have been UN thinkable only a few years ago for anyone to attempt to take advantage of the grief and sorrow of a tragedy and horrible event where innocent men and woman lost their lives.

However those that seek gun control apparently do not care about the loss of life and the horrible grief that the victims families face in the wake of the actions of a sick human being.

North Carolina race heats up

The biggest races in the US senate contest may be in North Carolina.

The most expensive election campaign in the history of North Carolina elections has been a huge contention among some voters.

North Carolina Sen. Kay Hagan is sitting on the most expensive hot seat in Senate history.

Spending in her Senate race against Republican State House Speaker Thom Tillis topped $100 million, according to the Sunlight Foundation—$10 million more than the second most expensive Senate contest this year in Colorado, and roughly $30 million more than the priciest Congressional race in history before 2014.

Hagan and Tillis have been running neck-and-neck for months. In the latest CNN/ORC poll Friday, Hagan’s lead was within the margin of error, 48 to 46 percent. But the closeness of the race doesn’t fully explain the costs. Across the map, endangered Democrats and Republican hopefuls are locked in competitive contests within the margin of error.

The truth may be something that the media may be finding hard to swallow and in fact with all the media spin voters may be feeling a little beligered with all the switch and bait ads as well as the outrageous contention that seems to be a big part of this race.

With Millions and millions of dollars being poured into this election you have to wonder what the voters will do, many expect to see a different result that what the media is churning out.

That might make for a great Crow Eating News cycle in the coming days but the truth is that the media hardly ever admit when they are wrong.   In the words of Stephen King ” they have forgotten the faces of their fathers”  The media appear to be so out of touch with the people that they cannot identify with the mood of this nation and that is why it is more important than ever to get out and vote.

 


Media Bias

The Media does not like the tea party, no surprise there as it has long been established that the media is not really that impartial in its reporting of the news, however it begs the question that should be something everyone is talking about, which is how can the media only present one side of a situation, and still be trusted?

Think about that for a moment, The media has been presenting only one part of the story, only one perspective, even Fox news which has become one of the more popular media outlets, is sliding over to one view, they say that they are fair and ballanced, but are they really?  Bill hemmer, Bill, orielly, Shepard Smith,  all tend to present Bias in their coverage, they want you to believe that they are presenting news and facts, but is that really accurate?

Bill orielly, says the spin stops here, but when he engages in favoring one side over another, when he only covers one side of an issue and talks over anyone Else’s opinion, then is that not his own “spin” I find it hard to swallow that Bill is not having some kind of mental issue, (allegedly) but I guess that is to be expected as he has a history of this in his family, and that is to be expected, however there is a thin line between reality and fantasy, and Bill sometimes I think gets lost in that thin line.

This was just received in an email and it is compelling, the Media is against the tea party, but why is that?

Dear Patriot,

Something incredible has been happening over the last few days, and it was every loyal member of the Tea Party Movement that made it happen! If you’ve been following the news, you’ve heard nearly every political commentator comment on the fact that Speaker John Boehner was forced to change his original plan twice because he couldn’t muster the 216 votes to get it passed. The general commentary goes like this: “In the past, Speaker Boehner could have given away money for a bridge or a library to buy the votes he needed, but the Tea Party banned earmarks so he doesn’t have that luxury.” Many of these old media dinosaurs speak with disdain when they make this point, as though by stripping the Congress of their currency of corruption (earmarks) is a bad thing; they just don’t get it! You should feel extremely proud of what those of us in the Tea Party have done–we have changed the entire culture inside Congress!

Now, if a politician wants to get the votes to pass legislation, he better be able to win on the merits of that legislation. It’s no longer an option to trade an unprincipled vote to fund some absurd pet project. No more “cornhusker kickbacks” for Ben Nelson in Nebraska; no more “Louisiana purchase” for Mary Landrieu in exchange for the passage of the dangerous Obamacare. This is the first example of how we are going to stop the flow of terrible legislation from Washington.

I’m so proud to have played my small role, and I’m genuinely hopeful that as we continue to grow, “We The People” will be able to preserve the blessings of liberty for our children and grandchildren! The fight over the debt ceiling continues but already we’ve secured important victories by changing the process. This organization will continue to recruit tens of thousands of new patriots each and every week, and we’ll continue to provide the latest and best tools to make all of us more effective activists. TOGETHER, WE WILL WIN!

The most incredible part is we have put all of this infrastructure together without having to sell our souls to anyone. We’re entirely funded by patriots just like you who make an average contribution of less than $60! This truly is a historic day for the direction of country and we remain humbled by your continued support.
 
Thank you,
