When he finally completed his transformation of America into a Socialist State, people finally woke up, but it was too late.

Any one of these things, in and of themselves does not really matter. But when you add them up one by one you get a phenomenal score that points to the fact that our Obama is determined to make America over into a Marxist/Socialist society. All of the items in the preceding paragraphs have been put into place. All can be documented very easily. Before you disavow this, do an internet search. The last paragraph alone is not yet cast in stone. You and I will write that paragraph. Will it read as above or will it be a more happy ending for most of America ? Personally, I like happy endings.

If you are an Obama Supporter, please recognize that you have elected a president who is a 'socialist'. There is simply no debate about these facts. But you need to seek the truth; you will be richer for it. Don't just belittle the opposition. Search for the truth. I did. Democrats, Republicans, Independents, Constitutionalist, Libertarians and what have you, we all need to pull together. We all must pull together or watch the demise of a society that we all love and cherish. If you are a religious person, pray for our nation.

Never before in the history of America have we been confronted with problems so huge that the very existence of our country is in jeopardy. Don't rely on most television news and what you read in the newspapers for the truth. Search the internet. Yes, there is a lot of bad information, lies and distortions there as well, but you are smart enough to spot the fallacies. Newspapers are a dying breed. They are currently seeking a bailout from the government. Do you really think they are about to print the truth? Obama praises all the television news networks except Fox who he is currently waging an open war against. There must be a reason. He does not call them down on any specifics, and he has failed to refute any facts presented – because it is all true. If they lie, he should call them out on it but he doesn't. Please, find the truth, it will set you free.

Our biggest enemy is not China, Russia or Iran; no, our biggest enemy is the current contingent of politicians in Washington DC led by the Progressive Left Liberals who support the previously mentioned things.

Wake Up America! There's still time in 2010 to take back America and send a message LOUD and CLEAR to those who think "it doesn't matter."

I happen to think "it does matter."

Michael: Some wingnut bloggers, such as Cliff Kincaid from so-called "Accuracy In Media" (AIM), may fancy themselves to be professional journalists. Others may be considered amateur journalists whenever their posts are published. Unless any journalist meets ethical standards, however, their reporting should be rejected.

My apologies. I thought you agreed that "our biggest enemy is the current contingent of politicians in Washington DC led by the Progressive Left Liberals who support the previously mentioned things," which means worse than Al Qaeda.

Ad hominem attacks belie your sincerity.

Since you asked who the journalism critics are I will give you an answer. Mark Davis seems to think that OC should follow the journalism ethics and standards that he provided. I would take that to mean that he
follows the same journalism ethics and standards that he expects others to follow. OC stated that she is not a journalist. I am not a journalist. Since I am not a journalist I do not care what the standards and ethics are for journalists. I do not believe that most journalists follow these ethics and standards. This leads me to believe that Mark Davis must be a journalist since he is so familiar with these standards and ethics. As for the question about what is a journalism critic, you can look up the meaning of these terms in the dictionary.
A journalism critic is a person who reads, evaluates, and comments on the written materials of other writers. A professional journalism critic gets paid by someone to read, evaluate, and comment on the written materials of other professional journalists. As far as I know, no one on TBD is being paid to write or
evaluate anything.

mark,
you have no idea what my loses were regarding 9/11...but i will tell you that you've crossed a personal line.

i'm sure you're able to get an educated point across without coming across like a condescending, presumptuous, pompous ass.

you are entitled to your opinion and matt bruce is entitled to his.
leave me out of it.

"Our biggest enemy is not China, Russia or Iran; no, our biggest enemy is the current contingent of politicians in Washington DC led by the Progressive Left Liberals who support the previously mentioned things."

Perhaps Matt and OC haven't been paying attention since 9/11, but our biggest enemy is Al Qaeda.

Perhaps as a general rule, people should not post anything they are unwilling to stand behind. Before they pass the point of no return in slandering the President of the United States, perhaps they should consider the fact that bloggers may be held to the same ethical standards as other journalists. The canons of responsible journalism require evidence for every claim. Misrepresenting speculation as fact, in a malicious campaign to defame the President, could become quite expensive. Although the estates of deceased victims cannot sue for defamation in the United States, Barack Obama may not be such an easy target for flagrant misrepresentation.

If you bunch of journalism critics do not like the blog topics that OC puts on this site, why don't you just ignore them and comment on blogs that are up to your professional journalistc standards. Maybe you could even give us an example yourself on how to post a blog that meets the journalism standards you site.

I have looked back for several months and it appears to me that the same people make the same comments almost every time OC puts up a blog of a political nature. Some of you remind me of a pack of coyotes waiting for someone to attack. What would you do for fun if OC stopped throwing you some bait now and then so you can have a feeding frenzy. It is actually quite interesting to watch the dynamics of this group operate when a member puts up a blog subject that is unpopular. OC must not mind the attacks because she
seems to continue putting up blogs that get a lot of negative attention. Maybe she just likes to pull on your tails to watch some of you scream.

mark,
i will answer by saying first, i am not a professional journalist. second, i didn't write the above topic, rather clearly stated that it was authored by matt bruce. his credentials are mentioned. third, i've provided links, and links to the links for those who love to dig deeper. what a gal! fourth, i'm really not all that political. rather, like most folks, i'm a concerned citizen looking for thoughts for possible solutions for problems that there may not be any real answers for -- except 'do-over'.

pure and simple, most of my blogs are posted with the intention to inspire thought-provoking discussion. others are just for fun.

i'm all about being ethical, accountable and responsible. after all, i must live by a code of ethics. that said, why would anyone want to hold me accountable to a professional (albeit worthy) standard which no one else on tbd is held to for blog posts?
Comment by Mark Davis on January 7, 2010 at 7:17pm
I would like to know OCND's answer: Are you committed to journalism ethics and standards? Here is relevant information from the Society of Professional Journalists: http://www.spj.org/ethicscode.asp

I am new to TBD and it will take me a few days to look up all these claims and refuted claims that are being written about in these posts.

I am not fast and I am not witty, but I am very good at researching claims back to the original sources.
I do not listen to Glen Beck or any other political commentator. I do not belong to or participate in any right
wing groups or blogs.

I like to do my own research and come to my own conclusions as to the intention and outcome of an action taken by the legislative or the executive branch of the government. It is very interesting to me that two groups of people can evaluate the same facts and come up with completely opposite opinions as to the interpretation of the facts in question.

I will choose a few of the most controversial statements in this article and determine for myself what I believe to be the truth in these matters. Thank you all for your input as this gives me reference points to start my investigation. I will report my findings when my investigation is complete for the obviously intense scrutiny of this group.
