    "Earlier today, ThinkProgress published an exclusive report that the law firm representing the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, a right-wing trade association representing big business, is working with set of a private security companies and lobbying firms to undermine their political opponents, including ThinkProgress. According to e-mails obtained by ThinkProgress, the Chamber hired the lobbying firm Hunton and Williams. Attorneys for the firm solicited a set of private security firms- HB Gary Federal, Palantir, and Berico Technologies (collectively called Team Themis) to develop a sabotage campaign against progressive groups and labor unions, including ThinkProgress, the labor coalition Change to Win, SEIU, US Chamber Watch, and StopTheChamber.com."


    Sabotage campaigns.....does this sound familiar??? Watch yer backs, that's all. Anytime they attack the PERSON....beware.

    THIS is how they do politics....Radical Right....it's sabotage and propaganda, nothing more.

            evil: Definition, adj. , eviler , evilest . Morally bad or wrong; wicked: an evil tyrant. Causing ruin, injury, or pain; harmful: the evil effects of a poor diet.

            Odd how the dictionary states that the poor diet you are also fighting for, is considered evil isn't it? To use your attitude one would say that EVIL means Bad unless it means Good, tee hee. Kind of like no not always meaning no in your opinion.

            Seems a little far fetched to assume that the right even knows how to spell morals let alone have any. Just because you place your self on the right doesn't mean you ever will be.

    It's a shame that those people who lost family members don't have the donors to sue Brewer!
    She took that Federal Stimulus money her state got, and put it into the prison-for-profit industry, rather than using it so save Arizonan's lives.

    look up Morgan vs. Rockefeller and you'll see that, not only is this type of thing not new, but it's the norm.

    Now the question is: "do we blame the companies for ASKING for the money and manipulating the system? or do we blame the government for having the monopoly control that attracts the companies' demands?"

    I would easily argue the latter.

    "do we blame the companies for ASKING for the money and manipulating the system?'

    YES! Completely and absolutely.

    If your kid sees a bike unlocked and wants to steal it, do you say "Go ahead", or do you say "No, that's wrong"?

    Just cause you can doesn't mean you should.

      When a child asks if he can have cookies, the parents should say "no" if it's too close to dinner.

        Go back and SEE for yourself. If you can, I don't know if it's possible. But believe me, the problems people had with Bush were all to do with the things he did, not his wife. No one I know, nor did i ever see anyone attack Laura Bush.

          Of course the Michelle big butt thing is getting press because that fits the liberal media agenda.  A conservative makes an off color comment about a liberal and it's news.  It would not be news if it were the other way around.

            You know, it's ironic that Conservatives continually spout the "Liberal Bias" angle. But let's not forget one thing - news, media - the whole enchilada in the US is driven by market forces. That's only natural. If there weren't a "demand" for it, there would be no supply. Now the one thing I will give you is this: most news is not gathered, interpreted, and disbursed by your typical highschool graduate. So admittedly, there may be a bit of intellectual "frosting" on the news; we apologize for this inconvenience.

    I think the term that everyone is dancing around is "astroturfing," which is "sock-puppeting" on a more massive scale. Unscrupulous organizations may promote their agendas by setting up a bogus organization which falsely claims to be asserting their own independent viewpoint. Forum posting is one of their main weapons.

    Hubbers who sign up and then constantly post on certain subjects, without writing relevant Hubs, may be suspected of "astroturfing" someone's agenda while pretending to be just another hubber.

      Hugh, that's hilarious. I read this post just after leaving lady's profile. I was looking to see if she presented the same opinions in her hubs and I was correct in my recollection that she doesn't.

      1st time I have heard the term and it tickled me that she immediately denied doing exactly what she's doing. Circular logic was what she used to deny it. If she was "astroturfing" she would "astroturf" in a diferent place and that proves she's not "astroturfing".  Not the first time I've watched her use this type of logic to convince herself of something.

    Obama admitted you have to have a thick skin to make it to the White House. I don't imagine either he or Michelle give any credence whatsoever to vicious personal attacks. Obama made his opinion of Bill O'Reilly and his ilk quite clear during his interview on SB Sunday.

                That's off the top of my head with no research - I don't suggest it's a complete list.  Now answer Jeff if you can. I suspect you will will not reply because your claim is false.

                  I highly doubt wiretaps affected your freedoms.  If they, did, please explain to us how.

                  Free speech zones?  Yeah, they were big fans of free speech when they tried to kick FNC out of the White House press pool.

                  Expansion of gun ownership rights?  Really?  You'll have to be a bit more specific on that one.

                  And Jeff can answer the question himself, he's a big boy.....

    It is not news period.
    I don't know what you mean by the "liberal media agenda." Which news sources promote this "agenda" bdr?
    A quick Google search uncovers several pages of coverage on the topic of Michelle Obama's butt. Not a single one from a major media source. So it's liberals that are promoting this story?

    LaLo -- we don't even have to read leftist propaganda. We get a daily full-on hate fest right here on the Hub Pages forums!
    I guess you're admitting here that you get your hateful criticisms from "extremist" publications. lol

        No one said racist.
        You indicated that criticisms of Obama as printed in extreme publications are then exaggerated by leftist propaganda.
        I said the criticisms I read are here on Hub Pages.
        But you didn't answer.
        Where do you get your hatred of the "evil left" anyway?

        I would say it IS hateful to point out someone's "big butt". Or do you mean it in a nice way?

        And don't pretend ignorance. These IS a racial component to it...it's been around since slavery. I learned about it in art class...."The African Diaspora".

        They used to have posters making fun of black women for their attributes.


        Which funnily enough, in a karmic sort of way, is now desired as a mark of beauty. J Lo is known for it, and some poor woman just died trying to buy herself a fake one.

        Hmmmm, maybe your insult backfired!! so to speak! Ahahaha--Howard Stern fart-joke!!

        You were the first person to bring up race at all. Nobody called you a racist, but you sure seem to want someone to: you've brought it up twice (so far). Is it so that you can get mad at them for calling you names, and pretend that they've somehow lost the argument? Why are you so obsessed with race?

          Jeff, I don't think people want to say it, but race has to play a part in all of this. I am not saying it is overt racism, but the reality, I think, is the following: The First Couple don't exactly look like Ozzie and Harriette Nelson. I think even subconciously it may be difficult for the average American to "identify" with their leader.

            "but race has to play a part in all of this."
            Race surely plays a role for some people.

            But I'm sure that for many, they'd be just as freaked out if a John Kerry had been elected.

            In this case, I just wanted to point out that nobody had even mentioned racism before LaLo started accusing everyone who disagrees with her of calling her a racist. Is there a conclusion that can be drawn? I don't know.

                Support?

                "The left manfactures racism to end intelligent debate... again!"
                Assuming that your 'black preacher' point can be supported with evidence, you've only refuted one (count it: one!) incidence of a racist-sounding slur.

                You haven't addressed the 'street' gang one, the 'white slavery' one, the 'what you talkin' bout, Willis' one, or the Obama-as-witch-doctor one. That's four-to-one, and I haven't even mentioned all the stuff about going back to Kenya, the lyin' African, the various caricatures playing up his race, etc, etc etc. I suppose all of those are products of some kind of left-wing conspiracy?

                And I repeat, nobody has called you racist yet. But you surely seem obsessed with those nonexistent accusations of racism. Why is that?

      Very true...they take over where talk-radio leaves off.
      Here I though I had escaped it by giving up radio.

    lovemychris was all a twitter about conservative talking points...She must have forgotten the progressive talking points like Palin's " lacks gravitas ", Cheney's " Red meat " speech, and Obama's " transformative presidency ", all blogged, bleated, and broadcast ad nauseum...I love it when MSNBC starts the phrase of the day and then watch it picked up by CNBC,CNN, and progressive commentators on Fox...
