Peak “Astro-Turfing”

Michael Bloomberg Is Paying People $2500 A Month To Say Nice Things About Him On Social Media

“The 500 “deputy digital organizers” will earn an estimated $2,500 per month — more than some campaigns pay senior staff — to “to promote Mr. Bloomberg to everyone in their phones’ contacts by text each week and make social-media posts supporting him daily,” the Journal reports. Organizers are expected to spend between 20 and 30 hours per week actively promoting Bloomberg on all of their social media platforms and making personal contacts where appropriate.”

 

Democrats couldn’t be more fake !!!

Here’s An Idea, DO YOUR FUCKING JOB!!!

A letter to the next owner of the Chicago Tribune: We need you.

Hello, next owner, whoever you may be.

I’m writing today on behalf of Tribune journalists past, present and future, all of us who have had — and, with your help, will have — the great fortune of working at one of the greatest newspapers in the world, located in one of the world’s great cities.

We don’t know who you are yet. But we know we need you, and urgently. Let me tell you why.

 

First, though, let me tell you who we are.

 

We’re a staff that works seven days a week, at all hours, to make sure that the citizens of Chicago and its suburbs know what’s going on. We believe that accurate information and informed opinion are vital to the city’s well-being.

 

Some of us are paid fairly for this labor. Many are not. All of us do our work proudly, in the belief that strong newspapers are part of the connective tissue of a community, without which the place falls apart.

We’ve continued to do this work even as the newspaper industry has been overrun with owners who don’t share our core beliefs. Now we are urgently looking for an owner who does, an owner we can believe in.

Wah,Wah,Wah !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The writer prattles on about how important journalists are to the survival and fabric of the universe.

About how unfair it would be if the new owner of the paper came in and cut staff. (damn profits)

Well hell, if you (collectively as the paper) would do your fucking jobs, you would be rewarded.  Your subscription base and sales would go up if you did your fucking jobs !

For 2 1/2 years, your paper did zero investigative reporting about the Democrat hoax called “Trump-Russia-Collusion.”

Currently, your paper has also never done one piece of serious investigative work on the current Democrat hoax called “Impeachment.”

Yeah, just do your job and things would work out just fine.

Reason # 762,635 I Would Never Be A Canadian

Canadian Comedian Ordered to Pay $35,000 over a Joke:

Ward was ordered to pay $35,000 to Jeremy Gabriel, who suffers from a genetic disorder that causes facial deformity and affects his hearing, due to a joke the comedian told at shows between 2010 and 2013.
Two of three judges ruled Mike Ward’s comments regarding Gabriel were not justifiable in a society where freedom of expression is valued.

The joke in question was regarding Gabriel’s disability. In 2005, Gabriel sang to Pope Benedict and Celine Dion to flesh out his dream of becoming an international singer.

Ward’s jokes called Gabriel a bad singer, stating that he was “terminally ill” and that Gabriel not passing away meant that his “Make a Wish” was invalid. Gabriel was not actually terminally ill, as Gabriel’s genetic disease—Treacher Collins syndrome—does not generally have an effect on lifespan. He was also not a Make-a-Wish kid, as Ward was embellishing the story for the sake of the joke.

 

Joy Behar Proves me Right

“If you are going to take people’s guns away, wait until you get elected and then take the guns away. Don’t tell them ahead of time,” Behar strategized.

 

In a segment that will almost assuredly draw howls from conservative media and politicians, The View co-host Joy Behar declared Monday that Democrats need to stop giving American voters advance notice that they’d take away their guns. Instead, she said, just wait until you’re elected to do it.

While discussing Beto O’Rourke’s decision to drop out of the Democratic presidential primary, the View panel debated why the former Texas congressman was unable to break through despite early hype.

 

(OH YEAH !! We’re howling !!!)

A part of my philosophy on Modern American Liberals:

In order to be a MAL, you need to be a liar and a hypocrite.  It is the only way you can advance your agenda.

You must accept that the people you support lie and are hypocrites. Since you accept and EXPECT your people to lie, you cannot see them as lying.  It is one of the most basic, inbreed tenet to being a MAL.
