John Stossel is airing an anti-headstart anti-public education show
Edited on Fri Mar-13-09 09:49 PM by live love laugh
When will these TRAITORS stop trying to ruin this country?

HOW can AMERICANS be AGAINST public education?


Stossel is throwing out every right-wing argument possible in his namby pamby singsong way while he "interviews" a "panel" of people (who I suspect are plants) saying things like preschool is a waste of money and why invest in an already-failing system. The last point is close to the Katrina experiment: let government be negligent enough that people will believe government doesn't work. Bush fucked up education enough as well so that people like the ones on Stossel's show can make a similar claim about education.

I hate Stossel and I hate all of those who think the way he does.

Seriously, it's like a hot fudge sundae or the music of the Beach Boys.

2. Why any network gives that nut bag Libertarian a second of air time is beyond
me. Libertarianism can never work because of human nature; people are just too damn greedy, lazy, and corrupt to be trusted to privatize anything critical to our Nation.

You can put your money in Head Start or invest in jails;
Jails cost seven times more per person. Sorry three yr. olds don't have bootstraps.

3. I hate him too
I figured him out sometime in the 90's when he did a segment to say there was no such thing as over-population because everyone in the world would fit into the state of Texas..shoulder to shoulder. What a daft argument. Those Conservatives have a real hard on for public education.

5. He is such an ass
He also thinks some workers need to make minimum wage and that women should be paid less than men. I gave up 20/20 years ago because of this asshole.

19. I thought Drew Carey was a staunch Republican...
that's why I don't watch "The Price is Right" anymore...never did watch his other show for the same reason. He's an idiot.

20. Drew Carey is/was a very funny dimwit that fell into a huge pile of cash
Edited on Fri Mar-13-09 11:21 PM by Greyhound
and wants to keep as much as possible.

I've gotten pissed with him several times when his show was on in LA and he is funny and he is pretty dim. Don't get me wrong, if a night of great jokes and fawning strippers is on your agenda, Drew is The Guy to go out with, just don't confuse funny and rich with smart and nice.

8. The only time I enjoyed Stossel
Was when he got his ass kicked by a pro wrestler back in the 80's.

14. His show tonight was stupid
It was all ideology stated as fact. There were no opposing views. There was nothing more than anecdotal evidence. Every John Stossel program is identical to all the others. ABC runs them because its a fascist network.

They kept showing highly edited clips of Obama and tried to make him look dishonest.

Twice during the program, panels were set up with only people who agreed with John Stossel on them. John collected a group of economists who disagree with the bailout. He asked for a show of hands for all who were against the bailout. Every one raised his hand. Stossel acted like that meant all economists everywhere are against the bailout.

I agree with him that the border fence is a waste of money though.
