Day to day diary of a 40 year old working mother. Recipes, ocassional attempts at humor, family photos.
Wow. Thats all I can say is wow. These people (or that lady) say that the government is spending their money any way they want. Did they vote for and elect the officials who voted on the stimilus or not? I may not be right, but that doesn't mean a revolution is the answer. This honestly kind of scares me that people are starting to act like this.
Did they vote for and elect the officials who voted on the stimilus or not? She probably didn't. And if she did, they're obviously not doing what she thought they would.
She's all tough when she has the camera (she uses it to intimidate her interviewee) and then when she doesn't have it she returns to a human being again.I'm not impressed with the coverage of the parties. I went to the one in Dallas (3000+) and it was a calm, collected, polite group of people that just feel like they don't have a voice.I'm dismayed and disheartened. But thanks for posting. I want to send that suburban mom some flowers!
Simply because a person's representative voted for the stimulus does NOT mean that person wanted him/her to do so. Or, that the voter didn't call and e-mail that official and ask him/her not to. It is becoming glaringly apparent that the disconnect between those in Washington and those they supposedly represent is nearly 100%. The 3 Republicans that voted for that mess had STATES full of people who did not want it.When someone is willing to spend more in 100 days than the past three or four Presidents spent altogether, THAT is scary. It is especially scary when you consider that the government does not make or produce its own wealth. EVERYTHING the government does or is or spends was taken from someone or something. The fact that I work until April 13th to pay my tax bill is scary. The fact that when asked how much tax a person paid, that person would say, "I got a refund" is scary--those people still paid thousands in taxes and the refund represents a tax-free loan they made to the government.The fact that people are finally waking up, paying attention and trying to push the country in the direction of the Constitution is refreshing.
The funniest comment was the reporter saying to the lady, "You don't have to be so antagonistic." How the heck was the reporter acting to the first man she interviewed? Looked antagonistic to me.
As a former reporter, this woman broke every cardinal rule. When you have a live shot, you are walking into the belly of the beast no matter the setting and you are to be a dispassionate observer and ignore the waving signs, honking horns, and goofballs dancing behind you as you try to deliver your report. I think if this happened to me even now, I would cringe just thinking about it. Ick!
What ticked me off was that she acted as if Norman should be grateful that we residents of IL got that 50 billion. I was interviewed at the 1st Tea Party in Chicago and if she had done that to me, I would have gotten downright belligerent. Neil Cavuto interviewed Norman and gave him a chance to answer where this b' left off. He was quite articulate as well. Those of us at Daley chanted, "CNN go home." Go to Founding Bloggers website and see the extra footage.
She's worse than you think. Watch this:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2WQbNaXJ8Pw
