So, let me get this straight… Karen wants to "restore sanity" by leaving it to the firmly entrenched status quo of Washington to institute the tenets of 'social justice?'

This assumes Glenn Beck's rallying cry to restore America to: the Constitution; representative accountability; fiscal responsibility; individual responsibility; new blood in Congress; government honesty and efficiency; is somehow insane? Huh?

Not sure which church you attend Karen, but in the real world social justice is an egalitarian concept of progressive taxation, income and property redistribution of forcefully taking from those with means and giving it to those with less means.

It would be much easier on your readers if you would simply come out and clearly state your affinity for Marxism, rather than using oddly worded editorials that dance around the core issue.

"Ours is a rally for the people who've been too busy to go to rallies, who actually have lives and families and jobs (or are looking for jobs)- not so much the Silent Majority as the Busy Majority," Stewart's online invitation says. "We're looking for the people who think shouting is annoying, counterproductive, and terrible for your throat; who feel that the loudest voices shouldn't be the only ones that get heard; and who believe that the only time it's appropriate to draw a Hitler mustache on someone is when that person is actually Hitler. Or Charlie Chaplin in certain roles."

Enough said, thank you Mr. Stewart.

Turns out, it traces to Glenn Beck who, a few months ago, redefined the term "social justice" as "forced redistribution of wealth with a hostility toward individual property rights, under the guise of charity and/or justice."

Strange, Beck is a mormon. In that church you are required to give 10% period or you're out. The church then redsitributes the money as they see fit.

Beck gleaned the definition of "social justice" from Wikipedia - look it up. Other sources agree with Beck as well.
As far as comparing tithing to taxes, sorry, not applicable.
No one throws you in prison, or attaches your wages, or applies liens if you fail to pay your tithes.
Try that with the IRS and see how far you get.

Rich, in the LDS Church, if you fail to pay an honest tithe, then you fail to get personal salvation in the after life. Where in mainstream Christian Churches, we are justified by faith in Jesus Christ alone, in the LDS Church, one must earn his or her eternal salvation. It does not come free as a gift.

And poor richy, just who edits Wikpedia? Fact for you richy, Widpedia is no more reliable than Snopes or Factcheck, but compared to becdkysstan, anything or anybody is more reliable and honest...except maybe you.
Another factoid for you richy, try not paying tithes in most churches and you will find yourself cast off like a tea bagger with eczema. Piss-eng off your mother church can even be much worse than annoying the IRS poor richy. So, though you puffed up big and proud, you were actually just like a diluted drink of tea with your lack of reasoning, relevance, and facts. Game, match, set .... fool.

Who better to host a sanity rally than the two of the more credible media personalities Stewart and Colbert? Their shows are known for their intelligence and willingness to broach any subject with honesty, and guests from the entire spectrum of thought and opinion. Their approaches to the issues affecting America are hard hitting and correct. This is a far cry from the becks, o'reilys and limbaughs, who spend most of their time backtracking and backpedaling from the outrageous lies, fear mongering, and character assassinations they routinely indulge in. The corporate master of these far right talking idiots makes sure that what diatribe they spew has passed the purity test of Rupert Murdoch, and the result is a stinking stew of dumbed-down pabulum only a tea bagger can appreciate. Just as glaringly obvious of corporate influence was the reaction of corporate mouthpiece and repugnant Senator Judd Gregg, who opposed Elizabeth Warren's selection as special adviser to help set up the Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection based on his fear that social justice would be at the forefront of the agency that has consumer protection in its name. Huh? Did the idiot from New Hampshire think an agency would need to be formed to protect corporations? Has this corporate water carrier completely jettisoned all shame? Is he so isolated from reality that he would utter such nonsense with a straight face and expect to be credited with insight from any one outside his corrupt universe? Just what alien species is he representing?

By all accounts Elizabeth Warren is a remarkable individual, much credentialed, honest, astute, and supremely capable of helping set up an agency that will counter the kinds of corporate malfeasance America is all too familiar with. But of course, any attempt to protect consumers means holding corporations accountable. And who hates any and all restraints on corporations? Repugnants of course, they would shrivel and die away if not for the money lavished on this worst case example of representative Democracy. Their blatant motives are always at the behest and interest of major corporations. Sorry middle class, you don't have an area code these aristocracy wannabes acknowledge.

It will take more than one sanity rally to remind people of what happened to this country during the years of ring control, but seeing how willing the extremists from the right fringe are to so quickly forget recent history, we will probably endure another cycle of regressive office holders catering to corporate masters. Let's hope we don't lose thousands of soldiers and innocent civilians in another illegal invasion, or corrupt the world banking system, or take our country back to a health care system that should be an embarrassment to all of the citizens in what is supposed to be a modern industrialized nation.

I realize that Wikepedia is edited by leftist loons and is not the be all and end all of information sources. Everything leftists get near is perverted in some way shape or form, but with a name like Pinko, I figured it could start with Wikepedia and work up to books. Baby Steps...

Kind of like you, wrongo. Trying to debate me is like challenging Tyson to a 15 round fight, when I always knock you out seconds into the first round.
Start with something manageable, like those scary shadows on your wall. Once you can avoid getting sent to the mat by your imaginary adversaries, move onto stationary objects, and then maybe you can begin verbal sparring with the Muppets or perhaps you could volunteer some time at your asylum and debate a mute.
Baby steps!
Until you graduate past the diaper debating stage, leave the actual thinking to we adults.

I wonder if it is possible to include an opinion without some sort of name-calling or sexual pejorative directed at another poster? It seems doubtful.

However, at the risk of incurring anti-communist, anti-socialist wrath I must concur with Ms. Nolan. The idea of America being the land of the free is based on the ideas and ideals of social justice. Without it, our country would be in the hands of autocratic, fascist leaders.

Whatever your status in life, you can thank all the leaders of social justice who came before you.

Does a restoration of sanity include, in Ms. Nolan's world, congressmen actually reading complex bills prior to supporting and voting on them? Does it include listening to what voters want as opposed to given them what YOU want (Obamacare again comes to mind).

Social justice is another one of those nothing phrases that anyone can put whatever meaning to they want. Same as "hope and change" or "family values". To me, social justice is allowing everyone the same opportunity without screwing them around in some way or fashion. And yes, I believe our country should follow this type of social justice.

Here ya go - no pejoratives:
Social Justice is nowhere to be found in our founding documents. Even the term "general welfare" is used to describe government functions that do the greatest good for the greatest numbers of Americans, while at the same time, adhering to our Constitution/Bill of Rights.

Big correction for Shadow: America is based on laws, not an arbitrary and subjective idea of 'social justice' where "some animals are more equal than others."

The Declaration declares our inalienable rights. The Constitution and Bill of Rights institutes government to enforce our individual liberties.
The ambiguous term 'social justice' has been made up by progressives to confuse and pervert our system.
