One straight-talking dude!

"We're mad as hell, and we're not going to take it anymore."

Watch this one. This guy tells it like it is. Every Congressman, Senator and the President ought to be tied to their chairs and forced to listen to this message about ten times!

Fallacy #1 - Obama has never said that we will solve the deficit problem by taxing people over $250,000. He has been very clear in saying that it should be a part of it, but has never said that it alone would solve the problem.

Fallacy #2 - "no one is doing this on the backs of the poor" - completely wrong. Look at the massive Medicaid cuts, the massive unemployment cuts, the massive food stamp cuts, etc that are all on the table. He talks about "the backs of the poor" while referring to Medicaire and Social Security, while ignoring all the other programs that directly deal with poverty.

The rest was mostly just hyperbolic populism that has little/nothing to do with the deficit.

But hey... lets not let facts get in the way.

A friend in Colorado, whom I've known since 1971, sent me this comment:

"I'll tell you Gus, I am going to work against every incumbent in next year's elections and I urge everyone to do the same. Forget political ideology, let's get rid of all these bums. I am going to write letters to papers and encourage others to run against these clowns."
