Beck Out at Fox, What It Means

Today Fox and Glenn Beck’s production company said that Beck, “will be transitioning off his daily Fox News program.”

I’m very happy to hear this (don’t let Bones see me smiling). Beck and Fox are trying to spin this as some kind of “moving on to greater things” action instead of what it is; a big defeat for them and huge win for us. Beck is going off the air at Fox because of a successful, sustained action to convince advertisers that Beck is bad for their brand.

2 Shot at Gun Show. NRA Supporter’s Response.

Every time there is a new shooting tragedy the spokespeople from the NRA have to create a response. I’ve heard enough of them to anticipate their verbiage. Here is my impression of an NRA supporter’s response.

The Rich are Laughing at Us and the Tea Party People

The rich are laughing at us, both dirty hippies and tea partiers. But when you cost your true enemies money, they don’t find it a bit funny.

The Rich are Laughing at Us and the Tea Party People

Every time I hear a quote from someone resenting what a great deal the public employees unions have I remember the quote of the Enron traders wanting to screw over, “Grandma Millie” for money. It reminds me of who we are not hearing from in this prearranged crisis in Wisconsin. We are not hearing the voices of the people who set up the financial crisis in the state. Let’s listen more closely to the people like the Koch Brothers who are on a mission to destroy the country to make even more money. They are the true enemy of “we the people.”

Glock Block! No Civilian Guns at CPAC

Right wing politicians and conservative pundits will publicly tell their supporters how much they love all guns and would never infringe on the rights of anyone to own any firearm or bring it anywhere. But when it comes down to their own lives their actions are clear. “Keep guns away from me, even if my security people have to pry them out of my supporters hands at the doorway of the venue.” They actually listen to the people they pay to keep them safe–and that involves sane, rational gun control.

Guns Outlawed at Palin Speaking Events

Conceal carry and open carry guns are banned at Sarah Palin’s speaking engagements for a Christian school at the Lubbock Texas Civic Center on January 24th and at the Safari Hunt Club speech at the Peppermill in Reno, Nevada on Saturday the 29th.

While people might expect that a Christian School would support a policy of no firearms at their venue, the unsaid implication in the media is the hunt club audience will be filled with men and women conceal carrying Glocks and open carrying rifles and shotguns. No wimpy firearm banning from the Safari Hunt Club!

But people’s expectations would be wrong. For this article I checked out the reality of the upcoming Safari Hunt Club speaking engagement vs. the press implied fantasy.

Who Profits from Violent Rhetoric? Can We Reduce The Profit?

If we are to have an impact on violent rhetoric we need to make it financially toxic to corporations and individuals who benefit from it.

Here are some examples of how I made the violent rhetoric of radio hosts a money loser for KSFO and some suggestions of other ways that we can make violent rhetoric less profitable for people and corporations.

Unemployed Man Shoots at School Board That Fired His Wife

Watch this video of a Florida man who walks into a school board meeting and talks to then shoots at school board members.

This is NOT, I repeat, NOT how I think that desperate unemployed people should confront the people who they think are responsible for their current situation.

That’s It Man, Game Over Man, Game Over!

How we deal with defeat says a lot about us. When faced with defeat do we scream “Game over!” or do we find the real enemy and fight back?
