Alinsky Used Against O-Progs

And they do not like it at all
Two of the most interesting stars in the world of conservative broadcasting have newly published books timed for the for the Christmas season. Michael Savage and Greg Gutfeld are both masters of ridicule, a tool extensively deployed by the left but too little by the right, especially its more respectable regions. The left, after all, was instructed by Saul Alinsky in Rule Number 5: Ridicule is man's most potent weapon. It's hard to counterattack ridicule, and it infuriates the opposition, which then reacts to your advantage."

Talk radio, the king of conservative media, reaching by far the largest number of people, is home to a number of superstars, who use ridicule extensively. Rush Limbaugh, Mark Levin, Glenn Beck, and Michael Savage, each in his own distinctive style, make fun of liberals.

Gutfeld is the exception, working at Fox News, where he co-hosts an afternoon talk show, The Five, and is the creator and host of Red Eye, a 3 AM humor show featuring wisecracking guests, YouTube videos, and general wackiness. The intended demographic seems to include college kids through the upper middle aged, looking for hip and edgy commentary on the news.

The title of Greg Gutfeld's new book, The Joy of Hate, reveals the in-you-face style within, mocking the liberals who call conservatives haters, throwing the charge back in their faces, as in Chapter 7, "A Pep Smear."

Obama Stimulus, Deficit, Debt Package

WH War on The Middle Class will never end


The median net worth of American households has dropped to a 43-year low as the lower and middle classes appear poorer and less stable than they have been since 1969.

According to a recent study by New York University economics professor Edward N. Wolff, median net worth is at the decades-low figure of $57,000 (in 2010 dollars). And as the numbers in his study reflect, the situation only appears worse when all the statistics are taken as a whole.

According to Wolff, between 1983 and 2010, the percentage of households with less than $10,000 in assets (using constant 1995 dollars) rose from 29.7 percent to 37.1 percent. The "less than $10,000" figure includes the numerous households that have no assets at all, or "negative assets," which is otherwise known as "debt."

When Obama was first elected in 2008, all the media lapdogs said it was historic. They were right. Obama has achieved some truly historic feats in his first term, with the next four years yet to come. In just under four years, Obama has now borrowed more money than all previous U.S. presidents combined! Not even George Washington through George W. Bush could equal the borrowing power of one named Barack Hussein Obama.
The federal government has now borrowed more money during Barack Obama’s time as president than it did in the period lasting from the time President George Washington took the oath office until July 2, 2001, more than five months into the first term of President George W. Bush.
By the time Obama is done with this country in 2016, borrowing will probably top $10 trillion, and it will be a new standard for Marxist Democrats.
