We all know how badly this ends.

From Stephanie Cutter's NEw Year's message to followers:

Right now, President Obama is asking you to think about what $2,000 a year means to you and your family -- because Congress needs to hear it.
The Senate has passed a bill that stops taxes from going up for 98 percent of American families, and asks those who can afford it to pay a little more. If the House follows suit, President Obama is ready to sign it as soon as it hits his desk.
If they fail to do so, a typical middle-class family of four will see their taxes go up by $2,000 in just a few short weeks."

~~~~~~What they are saying is that the Bush tax cuts are keeping everyone from paying $2,000 more in taxes. But, they are spinning it to say Obama is saving us.

a time when American voters will no longer squirm at the word "socialism."

They will no longer squirm when they accept the Marxist doctrine of inequality and exploitation which states that there is a moral equivalence between masters and slaves and lords and serfs, verses businessmen and wage earners.Marx considered workers to be "wage slaves" who are exploited by capitalists.They will accept and believe the idea that mankind's only salvation from the conditions of exploitation and class conflict is socialism which will elevate mankind into a new world of peace, harmony and equality.

I forwarded the link to a number of people today, as it is written in a way that they will understand what is being said. One of the better examples of the genre.

The only people who believe that socialism works are college students. Even the college professors don’t believe it. The college students believe it because they have no experience with the real world. Mao didn’t believe it. Castro doesn’t believe it. Stalin didn’t believe it. Socialism is a con. It goes directly against THE LAW OF EFFECT. You generally get more of the behavior you reward and less of the behavior you punish. If you punish hard workers with excessive taxes, there will be less hard workers. If you reward people for doing nothing, you will have more people doing nothing.

0bama’s minions are acting out the script of “Invasion of the Body Snatchers” IMHO.

Building up and maintaining such an illusion on a massive scale requires participation of the media, education, and entertainment industries in a coordinated, long-term propaganda campaign.

I insist on clarifying!! What is the difference between “the media“ and "the . . . entertainment industries?” They are the same, except that “the media” includes journalism.

In fact, we would have but little trouble with the entertainment industry and even with academia if journalism made any serious effort at objectivity. But of course, a serious effort at objectivity would start with an admission that objectivity is no easier for journalists than it is for anyone else - and that would limit claims about objectivity to humble pledges to try to be objective. Outright claims of actual objectivity - or even membership in organizations which claim objectivity for journalists - would be ruled out. Since we know that journalists aren’t going to drop claims of superior objectivity, and they certainly aren’t going to abandon membership in the Associated Press which claims its membership is objective, there is no prospect that journalism will voluntarily make systematic and serious efforts at objectivity any time soon.

With its egregious cramming of George Zimmerman’s innocuous speech into a racist template, NBC has opened itself up to what I hope will be a serious legal counterattack in civil court. IMHO the Associated Press, constituting as it does an essential monopoly of “mainstream media,” should be sued to within an inch of its life - plus about six inches.
