In 2008, the right wing or the republican party, created the most deceptive practice of using Talking Points that have a different meaning then how the listener perceived them. Over and Over, cable shows like FOXED SPEWS or A.M. radio jerks like Limbaugh, Hannity, Beck, Orielly, Ingraham,Steyn et al, use talking points that say nothing, yet give the listener a belief they are learning something. All you have to do is listen to anyone (ah-hem) who repeats these talking points on this board to see how effective they work. This year is no different. From congress to the senate to the surrogate talking heads on Foxed Spews, they repeat the same old talking points day after day after day and never really say anything. They use "BUZZWORDS" that capture their listeners attention and they then lose focus on meanings. Look at the word REFORM, the right wing uses this word because its a positive word, but they use it in a negative outcome. The word Frivilous is also a BUZZWORD that implies something bad, and then is used against the listener in application. The right wing just cant be able to speak truthfully about what they are trying to communicate to the american public. Lets look at whats been said so far and then put it in the translation machine and see what they really mean! Social Security Reform- cut money from old people Medicare Reform- cut money from old people Tort Reform-take money from all americans Mortgage Reform-home ownership society- Bush2 Wall Street Reform-gut new regulations on wall street executives pay Welfare Reform-cut from poor people Education Reform-cut out asistance to public schools, make school loans harder to qualify for. School Lunch Reform- cut from poor children If the republicans had any "ballz" they would just come right out and say what they mean, instead, they use jibberish by way of talking points to make a point that never clearly points out what they want to do. After all , the Republicans want all americans to believe they are our friends, right? As an alternative, I found this clip of a translation machine that we could use to place ALL the RIGHT WING talking points into and get a definitive answer to what they mean!! As our country simmers in turmoil, this machine could help ALL americans figure out what the republicans are trying to say: check it out! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kGo1-EVrsx8 DONT RUN, WE ARE YOUR FRIENDS!
