Edited on Wed Aug-05-09 08:24 PM by Gabi Hayes
I had to do it....compulsion

thanks for the thread, btw.

I just hope the rest of the M$M will start revealing the depths to which these creatures will sink

it's pretty obvious, though, that they'll stop at nothing. nothing embarrasses them, and they rely on a combination of a lazy, apathetic public and a coporate culture that will do whatever it takes to maintain/expand power

how much more obvious does it have to get? doesn't matter though, as there are studies posted here that show that these cretins, when presented with clear, provable refutationn of their closely held delusional value/belief systems, dig in, badger-like, and merely STRENGTHEN their insane worldview, ala Saddam/911/WMD, etc.

35. nope....just an occasionally cranky anal retent. usually I don't bother, but sometimes I just can't
help myself

it IS very rare to see {its'}, though. usually just the mixing up of possessive/contraction

anyway, that's more than enough of that. I could go on......

17. Rachel Maddow just exposed the corporate interests behind the fake grass roots movement
Edited on Wed Aug-05-09 08:32 PM by NoSheep
wrecking the health care reform discussion. Proving these aren't just "average Americans" trying to add their voices to the discussion. These are dupes of corporate coaching.

41. The site was taken down or disabled or plain broken by the time her piece
was over. Among the named were the 7th richest person in the US. Republican speech writers, lobbyists, etc. All disguised as grass roots groups but funded by those financially interested in killing reform and smart enough to know the difference. I'll bet the transcript is up somewhere. Perhaps the whole piece on YouTube. Can you watch video on your computer? (I can now only after a long time saving up to buy something fast enough)

47. There is a man named David Koch who is the 19th richest man
maybe in the world? He owns a corporation that organizes "professional grass roots protests." These people in this organization also orchestrate publicity against environmental efforts to go green.

I guess we can figure out how this man David Koch accumulates so much money.

Saw the excerpt and thought her detail and presentation simply amazing. The above are just some salient points that my tired brain can remember.

One other example she used was Ralph Reed using so-called professionals to recruit Christians to lobby against gambling in certain areas. As it turned out, they used the radial-right to protest in areas where the organization sponsoring the anti-gambling lobbying already had casinos in effect and didn't want the additional competition.

27. It is the website that incites the ignorant easily riled to violence crowd
to go to tea parties and disrupt town meetings by hanging effigies and shouting down anyone who tries to speak. In other words, it's the website that is against the democratic process.

"This is professional, corporate-funded PR. And it should be reported as such."

Go Rachel for shining a light at what is really going on, and shaming all of the journalists still pretending that it's a 'grass roots' campaign.
