9. and he makes a great income doing it.


Don't misunderstand. LO is my favorite cable news guy. He's the only one that I can listen to every night. Maddow is good but can be tiresome.

LO also declared that he is a capitalist.


"as much a capitalist as I am a socialist." However, he explained that, since America was the only advanced country where socialist is "considered a dirty word, I feel more compelled to stand up for the socialist side of me."


Economies that establish a healthy partnership between 'good capitalism' and 'good socialism' will provide the greatest benefit to their citizens.

10. I've never assumed that Socialism or being Socialistic would necessarily exclude that possibility.

Apparently others do think that and that's one reason I brought it up, but I think, from previous experience with some here in past threads, that s/he or they just don't really get what socialism is.

I hope that link from HuffPo with LO in his own words helps those who need it.

16. I am aware of it because he has said it on air for years

I too think he is awesome. Did you see his show this evening and the commentary on the Senate voting down the disability treaty promoted by the UN? Simply an excellent segment.

17. Thank you for the heads up. I don't get MSNBC, so I'll go find it on the internet. & I brought LO's

socialism up for the benefit of OP, with whom I had long and useless discourse recently in which I tried to explain and defend the merits of socialism, but OP would have NONE of it, so I thought it would be useful for him to know that the person he praises, to start this thread, is a socialist, or at minimum has socialistic values.

Thanks again, I will go look at ODonnell's show for this evening.

22. Look down thread. I think he's awesome. My tone that you're concerned about is directed at

OP, with whom I recently had a long and useless struggle trying to explain the merits of Socialism and RomneyLies would absolutely have NONE of it, so I thought he'd be interested in the fact that the person he's praising in OP is a Socialist.

4. The children are so thankful.

I've been a donor to K.I.N.D. from the beginning. Look at the faces of the happy children because they won't have to sit on the floor any more.

O'Donnell is making a difference in their lives and their futures.

7. It was a big success.

Larry travelled to one of the schools to see the desks being delivered.

They raised $2.4 million dollars and delivered 40,000
desks with another 5,000 to be on the way soon.

8. I understand the desks are made in the country and provide jobs to locals.

That is a multiple win-win situation. People have jobs, receive pay, support themselves and their families, and children get much needed school desks.

Much better than giving money to their government so that it can be siphoned off to those in power or shipping the desks in from China or some other low wage country.

15. If I was a social studies teacher...

... in elementary or Jr high school, I would get hold of LO and see if I could get the whole footage of the desks being delivered. I think it would make an everlasting impression on my class, make them appreciate how good they have it here as per education. It just might reach those students that you can't seem to reach. The ones you know are bright and intelligent but just won't take their education seriously.

11. At the end of the show

I told my husband that is what I want for Christmas.

I don't need anything from a store. This is what works for me.

18. He is awesome. Also donated to KIND. Like he said, to those old folks who don't want anything

for Christmas tell your friends and family to donate to KIND on your behalf.

Did you see last night how LO scolded those Rs for dishing Bob Dole?

20. I adore that man.

He brought me to tears with that segment. I work in schools almost every day, as a sub. I volunteer in my daughters' classrooms. Not all the schools I go to have big budgets but they all have desks for each child in the school. Kids not being able to have something as simple as a desk breaks my heart. You can donate as little as $10.00. Every little bit helps to go toward the desks.
