A Message From New Left Media

Posted in Politics with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 19, 2010 by Ro

 

Chase and Erick from New Left Media attended the Tea Party/Circus in Washington DC this past weekend.

 

On March 16, 2010, Tea Partiers from around the country gathered (in disappointing numbers) in front of the Capitol building for their final protest against health care reform. Also in town, appropriately, was Barnum & Bailey’s actual circus. The protestors voiced their usual conspiratorial concerns about healthcare reform: that it was a government takeover and more government, of course, equals less freedom; that it would euthanize seniors too expensive to treat; and that the bill would sink the nation into irrecoverable debt, despite its actually reducing the deficit by more than $100-billion over the next ten years. Averse to facts, no one interviewed was able to cite evidence for their false beliefs about the reform proposal, and instead suggested we seek the “truth” from Glenn Beck and Fox News.

THE PROPOSAL
The healthcare reform proposal being advanced in congress, while imperfect, would bring long overdue changes to a broken system. Far from being rushed, the proposals that make up this reform have been debated for years, and this congress has been working on a bill for many months. It’s time for an up or down vote on reform.

The proposal will expand healthcare access to over 30-million uninsured Americans, make healthcare more affordable for everyone, hold insurance companies more accountable, end discrimination against Americans with pre-existing conditions, and help stabilize our budget and economy by reducing the deficit by over $100-billion in the next ten years.

YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE:
You can make a difference in the health care debate without leaving your bedroom. So stop typing that narcissistic Facebook status, pause your Mafia Wars game, and actually do something in reality to advance the cause you support by calling your representative. This is so easy. Many people are timid about making phone calls, but a phone call to your representative now could save you a series of phone calls to an uncooperative insurance company in the future. Too lazy to look up your representative’s number? This website makes it even easier–it will find the number, call it for you, and then call your cell phone to connect you. Tell your representative’s office that you support comprehensive health care reform, and urge them to support the public option.

Your Representative needs to hear from you NOW – call them now and tell them to vote YES!

Glenn Beck claims health care bill includes insurance for dogs

Advice-Dog-GLENN-BECK-SERIOUSLY

“Do you know in the health care bill, we’re now offering insurance for dogs,” Beck said. “Do I need to say any more? If you are somebody who is like, ‘Well, I just, I’m struggling and we’re barely making ends meet,’ I’m not paying for your dog cardiologist!” Beck said. “Not gonna do it. I’m sorry, the dog goes nighty night.”

Politifact:
Included in the House bill is the creation of a Public Health Workforce Corps to address shortages in the public health workforce. The program would provide scholarships and education loan repayment assistance for public health professionals serving in areas of need. Veterinarians are included among those public health professionals.

“The rationale is that with mad cow disease, swine flu and other animal-borne diseases and issues, there is logic in helping to create more and better trained individuals to treat animal health,” said Vincent Morris, spokesman for the House Rules Committee

I guess Glenn Beck likes swine flu, mad cow, Avian Flu etc.

The thing is, while it is a masterful spin for such a slow adult, does it work? People love their dogs, sometimes more then their family members. Vet bills aren’t exactly cheap either. I asked my dog, Foxy, if she felt she deserved this “socialized medicine.” She simply stated “Single Payer or Bust!” and took a little poop on my nicest rug. She really hates Glenn Beck.

Sean Hannity admits John Stewart was right about bogus footage. (VIDEO)

s-JON-STEWART-large

Jon Stewart, or should I say his writers, totally caught Fox News trying to misinform their already misinformed viewers. Michelle Bachman (R etard) held an event in Washington DC, and while she was speaking to Hannity about it, footage of the 9/12 Rally was played with the tag “earlier” in the upper left corner of the screen. While Bachman (R eally nuts) estimated that 20,000-45,000 people attended the event, the Washington Post reported it was actually more like 10,000.



Well I guess when caught red-handed, Hannity had to admit the footage was false. However he said it was a mistake, and unintentional. Umm, yeah Sean, the only people that would believe that crap are the people that, well, watch your show.

Shepard Smith calls out biased reporter on health care.

Sorry I cant hear you over how awesome Shepard Smith, is.

Sorry I cant hear you over how awesome Shepard Smith, is.

Shepard Smith is awesome.

He has called out Glenn Beck, Torture Apologists (said “The US doent fucking torture” on Fox News live, Sean Hannity, Joe the Plumber, and the guy he punched who parked in his spot when he worked for a Florida affiliate.

Now he calls out a Fox News field reporter, who distorts the facts about Canadian health care. He mentions that we are not proposing a single payer plan, just an option the public had the right to take if they want.

The reporter, who had probably never heard those words before from anyone with Fox on there business card gets incoherint then ends the piece. It is magnificent.

Go Shep!

Al Franken Schools Angry Mob of Tea Party Clowns

al-franken

This is beautiful… when confronted by a mob of ill-informed protesters, Al Franken took the time to teach them what they could have learned from a little common sense and research.

I loved the woman in front who looks about 2 minutes away from death. She has no idea why she’s there.

McCain booed for respecting Obama at townhall at Heavens doorstep.

mccain-on-obama

Today in a town hall forum in Sun City AZ, home of the worlds oldest people, an old bag asked Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) whether President Obama knows “that we still live under a Constitution.”

McCain, who remembers almost being president till he picked Malibu Barbie as a running mate, said “I’m sure that he does.” He also said that Obama “respects the Constitution of the United States,” This caused the near dead people that rely on socialist medicare to boo loudly. McCain, harkining back yo his days in a Viet Nam jail pointed out the “fundamental difference in philosophy and about the role of government.” “I am convinced the president is absolutely sincere in his beliefs,” which upset the people more than when grocery stores are out of Depends Undergarments.

Stay Classy Tea Baggers.

So you see a Jewish man talking to a news reporter about how Israel has a strong public health insurance plan.

Do you:

A) Ask for more information about Isreal’s health care plan.
B) Give statistics about how America’s health care plan is better.
C) Agree to disagree and enjoy some falafel.
D) Yell Heil Hitler at the Jewish man, then make cry baby noises.

If you chose D, you are a real tea bagger.
