Snow Snooki

Couldn't resist sharing the latest nom de guerre de Sister Sarah, compliments of a poster over at "News Hounds". Strikes me as absolute perfection.

Led by feckless chief Justice John Roberts, the U.S. Supreme Court today upheld the ObamaCare law by a 5-to-4 decision, with Roberts voting with liberals Breyer, Ginsburg, Sotomayor and Kagan.

While the decision means many harmful things for the American public, the Second Amendment community remains greatly affected, as the law requires Americans’ medical information to be culled and entered into a national database.

Centralizing these medical records will allow the FBI to troll a list of Americans for ailments such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) to deny them their gun rights, in the same way that the Veterans Administration has already denied more than 150,000 veterans their right to bear arms.

Just managed to watch some of Fux News coverage

It's a thing of 'beauty'. First up was Lindsay Graham, so pissed off that he could barely talk (literally). He was red in the face and everything. "It's a tax increase - really- it's a tax increase". Then, Megan (I'm a blonde lawyer) Kelly now firming up the other talking point de jour - that since public displeasure (i.e. Town Halls) was instrumental in getting Rethugs elected in 2010, we're now going to have a whole new summer of Town Halls now, which will sweep Democrats from Congress. The Murdock-Fux news plan is twofold:

1- Keep repeating that, since the USSCt found the authority to fund the ACA was based on Congress' TAXING authority, that the ACA is now a MASSIVE TAX INCREASE. (I found that meme repeated by eight people in less than an hour watching Fux)

2- Try and gin up false public outrage again like the manufactured Town Halls of 2010. Get the people scared about the unknown and LIE to them once again about death panels, and, of course MASSIVE TAX INCREASES.



How are we ever

How are are we ever going to be able to overcome the huge disparity of reporting in the MSM which is critical of Obama and non-critical for Romney? Watching tonite's news shows on a variety of channels I was struck (and more than a little discouraged) by the overwhelmingly critical reporting re Obama's truncated statement that the 'private sector was doing fine'. To say it got beaten to death would be a polite understatement. Compare and contrast that with the glaring free pass the Romney gets for not only stupid statements (like his bitching about Obama wanting to 'hire more teachers, firemen and policemen') but also for his many outright lies, as documented by Rachel last night. Every broadcast station - ABC, CBS, NBC as well as the cable networks CNN and MSNBC seem to be getting their scripts right from Rove's playbook. If we add to that all the truly vicious partisan propaganda now freely allowed under Citizens United it becomes an almost insurmountable amount of negative information repeated over and over and over, ad infinitum. And, as Josef Goebbels pointed out years ago, for propaganda to be effective it must, above all, be repeated over and over and over.

Seeing as this election will depend in the final analysis on our persuading the so-called Independent voters to vote for Obama, how are we ever going to be able to counter this deluge of slanted coverage designed to convince the disinterested, disengaged or low-information voters that they should vote against Obama (not FOR Romney) in November? I for one confess I haven't a clue.
