Proud to be a Filthy Liberal Scum

Loud, Proud and I don't care about hurting a conservative's feelings!

An Observation On The Bumper Sticker Way We Get Our News

So I was watching the new Obama campaign commercial and CNN’s Wolf Blitzer comes on screen and says, “…given Osama bin Laden’s role in killing 3000 Americans…” Not “almost 3000” or “just short of three thousand” and certainly not the actually number. That got me thinking that we’re so lazy in how we deliver and receive our news that we round up the number of deaths in the greatest national tragedy in a generation because it sounds better. There were 2977 killed plus 19 hijackers. How many people actually know that number off the top of their head? I know I didn’t although I know I’ve seen it before. I’m conditioned to think “3000” and I’m willing to bet most of you are, as well. Why? Because that’s the number you hear all the time and you only hear it because it’s “catchier” than two thousand and seventy seven.

If we, as a country, deliberately embellish such a basic piece of information because it makes a better slogan, is it any wonder we have such a misinformed electorate?

  1. It’s two thousand, nine hundred and seventy seven.

  2. Theres’ no doubt about it in my mind Justin Rosario, you filthy liberal scum…

    I have read ALL your writings and postings on this blog and have e-mail subscribed so that I do not miss a single one you post. I have kept your very best writings as a reminder why I have taken the political stance I have and still do. Indeed, especially those postings of your’s that directly pertain to me, family, friends, associates and my own private issues that are of great concern to me, etc.

    I think you and your political insights coupled with your particular type of writing style that comes at us ‘straight from the hip’ like a drawn .45 peacemaker at a gun fight in Dodge City is and will remain among some of the best political and social issues writing I have ever had the pleasure of reading. As I would have it, required reading and essays to be written by freshmen in reply to the text, in any political science and social problems class at any university, nationwide.

    No, not patronizing or trying to ‘blow yer dress up’, Justin , just tellin you like it is.

    I really do appreciate to a great degree your continuing efforts to ‘talk’ to the American people about all these political issues you address and these most grave national consequences we’re facing today in this ‘down’ economy we’re having to ‘make do’ with.

    Please do not take offense when I tell you this ‘out in the open’ and ‘in public’, Justin Rosario, from one writer to another, I Love You…I Thank You….for providing me with all I have ever had need of to better understand why I follow my heart and not my head in things that matter most to me in life. It goes without saying, we’re in full agreement and I have yet to find a written piece of your political positions, text, etc. that I have not givin your work ‘full concurrance’.

    Coming from me, that, is really ‘special’ because you, of so many authors, books, text and materials I have read, studied, critiqued, edited, etc, are the ONLY present day, active writer that I have given ‘cum laude’ to…….yup, thats’ right.

    Being the non-traditional female (touchy feelee sensative ‘warm fuzzy’ type) college student that I am and having made all ‘A’s in my general ed. English Comp. I,II,III classes (@ Oklahoma State University, Stillwater,Oklahoma) I can say with all honesty that you deserve public recognition for this really fine work and your persistant devotion to making ‘right’, the master of might’ and in some way, some how, some day, maybe right after President Obama wins re-election in November,the GOP loses the House of Reps and seats in the Senate to boot, then, perhaps we can pass around the salutatory wine and acolades, well deserved.

    In the meantime, may I help you with editing ? I do run into some minor errors in your writing procedure in your getting your best ideas and thoughts put down in the best way possible. DO let me help you with that ?…so that you’ll be at your very finest.

    Writing is art and like a painter, we are appealing to the senses of the beholder.

    You do it well, let me help you be at your very finest.

    Can we discuss this ? I am at… vetzero@gmail.com Feel free to get in touch with me and will ‘talk’ ?

    Many blessings be your’s Justin Rosario…you filthy liberal scum.

    Karla Golay, in Oregon, another cesspool of filthy liberal scum, just reeking in it.
