Today, we live in a world that turns people into almost instant global brand identities for mass marketing and lavishes them with untold fame and riches. Celebrities lead lives that most ordinary folk could not even begin to imagine. The outcome, however, has sinister implications not only for those coping with fame and playing out the illusion, but also for those who buy into celebrity worship and the aspirant mindset that surrounds the phenomenon.

Craving fame and wealth has become the blind faith of the age. TV programmes like ‘X Factor’ and ‘Indian Idol’ are based on the falsehood that this is what the masses should aspire to become, as they drool over a fast food smorgasbord of here-today-gone-tomorrow commodity forms (of which ‘celebrity’ is but one) to be glorified then spat out when considered obsolete. It’s an obsession built on crazes that have little resilience in a world of media-induced, corporate-backed fabrications and fickle idolisation.

"I know libs hate most everything moral or honest"

Actually, liberals hate EVERYTHING moral, religious or honest or responsibility!

Liberals hate responsibility that is why Obama never "knows" anything about any scandals and blames others for anything wrong!!!

Liberals belong to Satan, Conservatives belong to God, as simple as that!

Bible prophecy says End Times people will be in two very distinct camps, you either good or evil, there will be no other option, it is written !!!

liberals will be the evil ones and conservatives the good ones!

Yes, it is as simple as that!!!

God will not burn moderates but pure evil hearts full of hatred as liberals radicalize themselves more and more!!!

The Heritage Foundation criticized a New York Times editorial headlined “A Big Storm Requires Big Government.”
It called it “a shameless attempt to politicize” Sandy. The Times grossly exaggerated Obama administration federal disaster aid. New York coastal area residents got little.
Two weeks after Sandy struck, hundreds of thousands lack power, heat, and other public services. Cost-cutting, under-investment, poor infrastructure, and indifference bear responsibility.
One report called Staten Island “the forgotten Borough.” Residents say it closer to hell than any of them ever saw. A local firefighter called the island “a dump.” An area nurse said people will die from lack of heat and proper shelter.
Another resident asked “where’s FEMA or the Red Cross? Down here, it’s people helping people.” The Times claimed Obama restored FEMA to “working order.” Neglected New Yorkers haven’t seen it.
Heritage, of course, wants most government functions privatized. Other than major disasters, it wants no federal involvement post-”tornadoes, fires, floods, snowstorms, severe storms,” and similar events having “no national impact.”
FEMA “lacks key capabilities,” said Heritage. Budget cuts and federal disinterest explain why. Obama wants FY 2013 disaster relief cut by $1 billion.
Part of what’s cut he wants allocated to state and local programs. They’re also cutting back. Most functions face reductions. Budget-cutting is de rigueur nationwide.
On October 31, The Citadel visiting scholar in entrepreneurship Russell Sobel headlined “The Free Market Can Do a Better Job,” saying:
FEMA and other federal initiatives don’t work. At issue is “central planning. Fixing disaster relief is simple:” privatize, privatize, privatize. Business works better than government so let it.
“Government should stick to law enforcement and major public works repairs.”
Sobel advocates regulatory-free, tax incentivized free trade zones. So-called NGOs also have a role, he says. Most profiteer for themselves. They’re predators, not humanitarians.
Nearly all have entrenched bureaucracies. Their officials are highly paid. Their operating rules are secret. Their financing sources and amounts aren’t disclosed.
They need to be rolling in some temporary going to take awhile shelters and heat in that area for sure. At the rate of storms lately, FEMA ought to keep a few lots full, ready to roll where and when ever needed.

It get COLD up there come December.

Now that the entertainment is over – now that the world’s longest sporting event is finally over for FOX and CNN, Americans will have to go back to the day-to-day lives they managed to avoid during this latest Presidential election.

The reality bites once again, that in 2012, America remains more divided than ever in terms of wealth, in terms of values, in terms of Prozac, and in terms of tribal identity politics.

Romney seemed liked Wall Street’s ideal President, but he wasn’t ruthless enough it seems. You have to really want the power. Mitt put on a good show, but played too soft to actually win.

Obama proved that he was worthy of the banking elite’s endorsement four years ago. Remember when Obama left the campaign trail with his dancing partner John McCain in 2008, to help to spearhead the bankers’ takeover of the White House in 2008 (Bush Jr was fishing at the time), pushing through Democratic support for the first banker bailout? Obama had to do it because the Wall Street banking elite ‘made him’ in terms of his candidacy, and they could also break him too. Obama’s family connections with the Geithners didn’t hurt either, nor did Soros’ love of Obama. He proved that he could follow orders.

Obama’s campaign strap line this year was “FORWARD”, an interesting choice of word, blunt and brutal – one straight out of Mao Se Tung’s China, or Stalin’s Russia. Is this a hint of things to come?

America has never been so divided as it is today in 2012

Nice; however, Brown Eyes posted a joke and it wasn't vulgar. Comedians make fun of everyone and the joke about wearing two coats is pretty mild.
On the other hand, the poster rush is just a flat out sicko racist and only posts vulgarity.
"silly"
"brown eyes" does not post vulgarity? If she changed the names from Mitt and Ann to barrack and michelle you would be up in arms.

One thing is certain now – with the amount of scandals and skeletons piling up in the White House basement after four years of Democrat rule, it’s possible that Obama will not make it to the finish line in 2016 without escaping impeachment or some other legal crisis. It will be interesting to watch how this crime drama plays out.

Like with any modern democracy, for better or for worse, America will get the government it deserves.

So it’s more wars, more Guantanamo, more drones, less rights, more prisons, more foreclosures, more stimulus, more homeless, more class warfare and more hollow rhetoric. Oh, and more golf.

May I ask you something?? Do you ever think for yourself??
Will your dividend rate go up?? Are you one of the CEO's who tried mightily to defeat Obama??
You're poor, you likely don't have investments, much less dividend paying stocks,if you have them, they're in hubby's 401K, and you don't pay taxes on income in a 401k.
Why does a poor person like you, maing $15 an hour, part time, care about taxes on wealthy folks??
Why do you ignorantly throw your lot in with rich folks? Hoping to get more cheap stuff they leave on the curb??
You make no sense at all, Carol. You stated you were willing to throw your husband under the bus concerning Medicare so rich people wouldn't have to pay more taxes.
Why are you so self loathing you kneel before the rich and take whatever scraps they throw to you?? Folks like your hero, sex deviate O'Reilly, worth $50 million.
You actively lobby against your own self interests. That's a definition of insanity.
And your daughter voted for Obama, laughing at you behind your back!!

We all understand you pay no Federal Income tax. That is a given. Why in the hell do you expect those are successful to pay a higher rate than the lazy, those who are less successful?

"Should any political party attempt to abolish social security, unemployment insurance, and eliminate labor laws and farm programs, you would not hear of that party again in our political history. There is a tiny splinter group, of course, that believes you can do these things. Among them are H. L. Hunt [you possibly know his background], a few other Texas oil millionaires, and an occasional politician or business man from other areas. Their number is negligible and they are stupid."

Jude Wanniski decided to turn the classical world of economics – which had operated on this simple demand-driven equation for seven thousand years – on its head. In 1974 he invented a new phrase – "supply side economics" – and suggested that the reason economies grew wasn't because people had money and wanted to buy things with it but, instead, because things were available for sale, thus tantalizing people to part with their money. The more things there were, the faster the economy would grow.

how's that workin' for you tards?
