Posted on 08/20/2011 4:28:48 PM PDT by Lazlo in PA
Sometimes I wonder how liberal media members could possibly live in the same country as I do and hold such startlingly absurd ideas about it.
Take for example Fareed Zakaria who on the CNN program bearing his name this Sunday is going to tell viewers that America would likely still have a AAA credit rating if we had a parliamentary system of government with a prime minister rather than a president (video follows with transcript and commentary)
(Excerpt) Read more at newsbusters.org ...
More evidence that the low rated CNN is populated with America hating filth. By the way, this turds father was a member of the Indian Parliament. No wonder he longs for this garbage.
Maybe we’d still be America if Fareed took his @$$ back to wherever the hell he crawled out of.
We have a president?
The Constitution requires that the president take good care that the laws be faithfully executed. I don’t see that....
Maybe we’d be happier if Fareed went on a gay-cation with Omoslem to Fire Island and they never came back.
Fareed should marry Omoslem, move to Syria, and build the first Gay Mulatto Mosque.
If we had a Prime Minister, Obama and his party would have been tossed out of power two years ago.
Oh yeah, I can see a government of six or seven political groups trying to make a coalition then a few months later have to have another election to form a new government that you’d have to vote a new one again and again ... rinse, repeat.
Fareed Zakaria is just another example of why immigration to America must be strictly controlled. Zakaria’s beliefs are incompatible and hostile to the US Constitution, free enterprise and liberty.
Seems to be? To seem to be or not to seem to be!
Sure, Fareed. Because Lord knows I’d opt for a complete redesign of the American government if only it would look good to a bunch of bond traders.
Well, if we did have a parliamentary system, Clinton would have been out in ‘95 and Obama would have been out this year. So I can’t say a parliament is all bad!
You ugly Bastard,The world would have been a better place if you were Aborted.
This guy is a world-class jackass.
Hey, Fareed, you are welcome to go back to India, Pakistan, the United Kingdom or any other country with a PM. The USA is still a constitutional republic, and has served us well for 235 years. We are (at present) still the most free and prosperous nation in the history of human civilization. Third-world jackasses like you can kiss my white, conservative, TEA Party butt. What a complete jackass!
Lord Almighty, please, through Your infinate grace and wisdom, save us from liberal jack-wagons like Fareed.
Love it or leave it, you muzzie POS.
Maybe Fareed Zakaria would lose bowel control if he had to write about Prime Minister John Boehner leading the country.
In a parliamentary system we wouldn’t be stuck with an usurper for 4 and perhaps 8 years, like we were stuck with the Arkie criminal. The point is that parliametary systems are dynamic, whereas ours is static and, frankly, antiquated. Oh, and anticipating flames, it is also “purrfect”, so whatcha gonna do?
Dude needs to go the h*** back to Mumbai. Or Cuba.
Fareed needs to spend some time choking on bacon, instead of what he usually chokes on.
The Socialists don’t realize their gay spokes-moslems (Omoslem; Fareed; etc) aren’t convincing anybody of anything.
Except to serve bacon.
His father who moved to Pakistan after partition to be in Islamic state and return back to India because there are always more free dole being minority in Hindu majority state, blamed whole life India and its Parliamentary system, and hey ho! Fareed Zakaria left India because unable to mint everything being from minority community (Muslim) in India.
How does CNN pick its newscasters?
Hates USA? check
Not bright? check
Wishes this was Europe? check
Maybe we would still have a AAA rating if we had an American President-—preferably a Christian, Jew or even Atheist, but definitely not a Muslim.
Bingo!!! WE have a winner!!!
Another answer of more government when government fail. This is what happens when Bolywood half jacks are let to talk.
The real question is why didn't we lose AAA earlier, and the sudden DoJ interest in S&P (and not its non-downgrading competitors) provides your answer.
I 2nd That.
Maybe we’d be AAA if we had a president.
How did this a-hole ever get into the country?
The guy is a total; retard. Why even post this drivel from these idiots. I know we need a good laugh every now and then..
This dork is obviously a criminal like his kenyan friend.
There are plenty of socialist dungheaps, er, parliamentary democracies available for Fareed to move his sorry a$$ to. I think he should pick one and move there quickly.
Is it time to take OUR country back yet?
Fareed has a point, although he may not realize it. If we had parliamentary government, we could have had a no-confidence vote and gotten rid of Zero.
This putz needs to shut his trap.
This putz needs to shut his trap.
As I post this, there are 37 replies to the thread..probably MORE than watch his show...
I don't know, but they must be better than Eliot Spitzer's were. Fareed's still on the air.
Let's see....hmmmm.....Portugal, Ireland, Italy, Greece. The PIIGS, except for Spain, a Constitutional Monarchy.
Yep, they all got Prime Ministers.
Fareed is an Ivy League Idiot (Yale).
You hit the nail exactly on the head.
More worrisome, he is given a media platform (CNN) in which to position himself as an “expert.” If you think he is just another commentator, watch him more closely. He has a very specific agenda, Take note of who his guests are and how he positions them around particular issues. Zakaria is a very, very slick propagandist.
He is also a consultant to Obama. This should be of concern to every American.
If he does not value, respect, and hold dear the Constitution of the United States, then he needs to have his Muslim Jihadist ass kicked out of this country, and quickly. He is attempting to influence the very political system of our country.
Maybe we will still have a country, its Constitution, and G-D’s Blessings if we take our own heads from out of our posteriors, and drop-kick our enemies’ a$$es out of the US, instead of opening our doors to them and giving them carte blanche to destroy us.
We, The People became lazy, and allowed all of this to happen. We allowed the MSM to be bought by hostile outside interests who turned them into propaganda machines; we allowed hostile foreign governments to buy our assets and use them against us; we allowed the politicians to drop the anti-trust laws and underminded competition in the marketplace; we allowed the government to permit companies to send our jobs overseas, killed our manufacturing base, and deprived Americans of work .
We permitted the politicians to allow this to happen. We trusted them to make sure American interests were not jeopardized, and we did not call anyone on the carpet for it, let alone jail them for it.
This is what happens when people take freedom for granted, and vote for people who do not hold both the love and fear of G-D in their hearts and minds.
Forgive me for this rant. I am thoroughly disgusted.
So it's Obama's fault?
Fareed is a shaved Muslim monkey.
I swear to God, I go to stores and everyone is Asian, Hispanic or Indian/Arab/Persian...
Who did this to MY ANCESTORS AND ME?
Why do third world maggots infest cities and towns built out of nothing to become the best in the world to bring it down to their “sh*t where you eat” culture?
Why do we bow to a Marxist Muslim? Why do unions and self-loathing Kapos like Soros tell us how we live?
A fat AA hire at the EPA is shutting down coal production and an anchor baby, Salazar is stopping our oil while paying for Brazil’s and China’s?
The Anglos need to step up and realize that yes, there are good people and bad people of all stripes, but you will be DHIMMY CANNON FODDER for the Marxists, Muslims or Mexicans...
They have no apple pie, GM or Disneyland, they have sh*t.
Stop being afraid, F these maggots.
Time to step up and fill the void of Lindsay Graham and the loser, limp-wristed GOP (GOOP) do for our nation.
I want Mayberry, but without the Libtards Andy Griffith and Ron Howard.
So ... You want Floyd the Barber and Goober?
“Oh yeah, I can see a government of six or seven political groups trying to make a coalition then a few months later have to have another election to form a new government that youd have to vote a new one again and again ... rinse, repeat.”
I find that quite preferable compared to the last 20 years,
You are, sort of, correct.
Our system was designed for a limited government that did very few things. The whole point of all those lovely "checks and balances" is to keep the government from functioning efficiently.
This works quite well as long as the government doesn't do much. It doesn't work at all well when the government is trying to run a social-democrat Euro-style welfare state.
Which leads to the government ignoring the Constitution in order to do what it was elected to do.
I contend we need to either return the government to its original limited functions (my preference) or completely revamp the system so that an activist government can function reasonably efficiently.
A parliamentary system has very few formal checks and balances. A party that wins a majority can promptly implement the program it ran on in full. This obviously has both advantages and disadvantages.
Americans don’t like voting in the first place. How do you think they’d like it having to vote for a new PM every several months or so, having political advert’s on TV and plastered on walls day in and day out?
