  • Alan Grayson Lies to DUers in Plea for Donations

    NewsBusters ^ | October 12, 2010 | P.J. Gladnick
    Just how desperate is Democrat Congressman Alan Grayson to get re-elected now that even liberals such as Contessa Brewer have questioned both his credibility and ethics? So desperate that Grayson is now pleading for donations at the Democratic Undergound. And in keeping with his normal operating procedure, Grayson accompanied his donation plea with a flat out lie. Here is Grayson making his pitch to the DUers with his lie highlighted: On Friday, the DC newspaper "Politico" reported that: (a) "conservative outside groups" have now spent over $9 million "slamming vulnerable House Democrats," and (b) the total against me will reach...

    Boston Herald ^ | Friday, October 2, 2009 | Jessica Heslam
    A Gloucester attorney is going up against FOX’s Glenn Beck and is defending the creator of a controversial Web site the right-wing yakker is trying to shut down. The site, didglennbeckrapeandmurderayounggirlin1990.com, is based on a joke originally aimed at comedian Bob Saget. During a TV roast of the former “Full House” star, funnyman Gilbert Gottfried tried to squash rumors that “Bob Saget raped and killed a girl in 1990.” The Web site was created last month by a Florida man, Isaac Eiland-Hall, after an online post - “Why haven’t we had an official response to the rumor that Glenn Beck...

    WASHINGTON - Hundreds of thousands of anti-war protesters will descend on the nation's capital this weekend, demanding that Congress and President Bush withdraw American soldiers from Iraq. Yet as Washington girded for three days of demonstrations, President Bush promised yesterday to remain firm in his support of the war effort. In remarks delivered at the Pentagon, the president said Americans who want to withdraw troops from Iraq to escape violence have "good intentions, but their position is wrong." "To leave Iraq now," Mr. Bush said, "would be to repeat the costly mistakes of the past that led to the terrorist...

    Let's face i, governments and unions are agents of THEFT and to a large degree, they are the bagmen of the middle class. They distort the markets for labor and trade so that some people are able to TAKE more resources out of the pockets of the owning class than they are entitled to. It makes me sick. Most of the people in the “middle class” in America have no business having what they have. If the just, God-given market forces were left alone, those thieves would be living in the shacks their productivity entitles them to and the wealthy...
