msnbc host claims that kids belong to community, not parents
MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry recorded a commercial for the network in which she stated that children do not belong to their parents, but are instead the responsibility of the members of their community.

“...we have to break through our kind of private idea that kids belong to their parents, or kids belong to their families, and recognize that kids belong to whole communities.” The Media Research Center’s Director of Media Analysis, Tim Graham, called the MSNBC spot "frightening.”
“It's bad enough that ‘Lean Forward’ already sounds like an ad for Mao's Little Red Book, then to have your network's hosts talk about your children being part of the Collective is just spooky,” he said... Spooky, no, waaaaay more than spooky.
It 'takes a village' to raise a communist community child.

The Amazingly DISGUSTING Race

I don't watch this show. I have no plans to start.
I saw clips from this episode which  'featured' a ‘B-52 Memorial’ in Hanoi, Vietnam – which in reality was the wreckage of an American B-52 bomber shot down during the war.


Contestants were also filmed watching a performance of young people singing songs before a portrait of communist leader Ho Chi Minh.

Oh yes, Uncle Ho, the leader of the communist regime that tortured and killed American POWs and our Vietnamese allies.

Is this what's becoming acceptable entertainment?



It wasn't just the insensitivity, the utter lack of concern,  the short memory, the unlearned history, on the part of the show's producers, but on that of the contestants as well.

They seemed to know and care nothing about what they were seeing.


The apology is just insincere lip service due to fear of loss of revenue.

Budget problems be damned (Part 2)

When you tell the country there's not enough money in the budget for White House tours


and then you, your family, and the other guy (Biden) are taking vacations every month, 

you lose whatever small amount of credibility you may have remaining.


More than a vacation a month for the Obamas, 2013

by Daniel Halper:

In the first three months of the year, members of the first family have been on three vacations, averaging a vacation a month. And now it's being reported that the first daughters are on a spring break vacation in the Bahamas.

The Obamas began the new year in Hawaii .... spending 9 days vacationing with family and friends in his native state. Here’s a quick look at how he spent his vacation," ABC reported on January 6, 2013.
Then the first lady and their daughters vacationed in Aspen over President's Day weekend. Obama-daughters-skiing-Idaho

Biden-taking-third-vacation-2013

#3 March: Easter weekend on Kiawah Island off the coast of South Carolina.

#2 February: Biden and family took a trip to Snowmass in Colorado.

#1 January: Biden celebrated the new year in the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Despite budget cuts, and a decision to cancel White House tours in order to save the Secret Service money, the vacation schedules of those the Service protects do not appear to have been hampered.
