    “See the clues of and predicting a leftist caused uprising/revolution makes one a Marxist?

    Well this is precisely what Marx predicted, so if you believe the poor and working class with eventually revolt then you subscribe to Marxist theory. Which, by the way has proven over and over again to be wrong. There will never be a proletariat revolution as a consequence of capitalism.

    Ironic how the right reflexively refers to Mr. Picketty as a Marxist when Mr .Beck is the one who actually keeps predicting revolution.

    Recall, Marx predicted that as markets expand, profits from technological innovation would gradually dry up, depressions would get more severe and capitalists would drive labor’s share of income in the advanced industrial economies so low that revolution was inevitable.

    Mr. Piketty is not a Marxist. He sees no real alternative to global capitalism and has little interest in changing its inner workings through worker ownership, nationalization or the redevelopment or local or national markets. Like Keynes, his goal is to make markets a more efficient instruments for human progress. But although he supports the standard progressive agenda of financial regulation, public investment in education and infrastructure and aid to the poor, he thinks that in a globalized economy, capital is now beyond the control of any one country—even the United States. Efforts by individual nations to constrain capital will just chase away highly mobile private investment.

    The ultimate solution, he writes, is a worldwide progressive tax on private capital. Piketty understands that this is now utopian. But he argues that the tax is technically feasible and could be gradually adopted region-by-region.

    Sippy Cupp claims NRA doesn’t represent gun manufacturers.
    Really, I wonder how much CNN pays Sippy for spewing right wing propaganda.

    Of all things someone like Mr. Beck would regret (with respect Mitt Romney) he chooses this?

    Mr. Romney strikes me as someone who knows the price of everything and the value of nothing, so the symbolic value of such a gift would be completely lost on him.

    What a yellow bellied coward Mr. Beck is.

    Rather than confront Mr. Osborn with what he really thinks of Mr. Norquivst , Mr. Becks just keeps quiet and just mocks the man, a veteran no less, to his two doltish sidekicks after the interview.

    Say what you will about the O’Reillys or Hannitys of the MSM but those guys would have certainly brought up any issues they had with Mr. Norquivst (if they actually believed the nonsense) during the interview rather than hiding like a little girl behind than huge microphone .

    Mr. Beck is a disgrace

    This bogus analysis plus Mr. Limbaugh’s Colbert as new Letterman outburst clearly shows that he’s jumped the shark, or to be more precise the whale has jumped the shark. And if you don’t believe me the conservative Forbes’ magazine has a story which may convince you.

    Why is this so shocking? It just proves that the richest 1% make and even more disproportionate percentage of total income.

    A better question would be, what is the effective tax rate of the top 1% as compared to the bottom 99%? I suspect the numbers are something like 10% to 14% vs. 18% to 22% and that is what’s really shocking.

    Don’t know perhaps you can ask Mr. Beck.

    This has got to be one of the most commented on stories in the history of The Blaze. Perhaps this will even beat out the all-time champ, that being the story on Mr. Beck leaving FNC.

    But this is not really the surprising part. The surprise to me is that it took most of you this long to figure out that the emperor has no clothes. Liberals and progressives long ago figured out that
    Mr. Beck is really nothing more than a two bit shill whose barely comprehensible diatribes are no more meaningful or relevant than those of some messed up preacher standing on a soapbox in Times Square.

    After 5 years of violent eliminationist rhetoric directed mostly at the Federal government, just when the faithful are all assembled with their torches and pitchforks (AR15s and Glocks) ready to storm the castle, Mr. Beck suddenly does a 180 and says he just wants to hold hands and sing Kumbaya.

    If Mr. Winteregg thinks the Speaker and the POTUS are best buddies he must be sporting some huge wood himself since it’s clearly diverting the blood flow to his brain.

    Name just a single policy initiative the Obama administration has put forward which has had the support of the House. You’d be hard pressed to even come up with a negotiated compromise. Every piece of legislation has been rejected for the get go, any compromise has come from trying to avert a certain fiscal crisis such as debt default or the so called fiscal cliff.

    A bit surprised at the content of this story, after reading the headline I thought for sure that the badges in question would somehow resemble a Muslim flag with a star and a crescent or some other nonsense like a hammer and sickle.

    Funny how every single story posted on sharylattkinson.com on Benghazi, Fast and Furious, and Health Healthcare.gov links to CBS News.

    Also Ms. Attkinson appears to be somewhat of a vaccine/autism truther, which should pretty much invalidate any of her reporting as being objective.

  • April 12, 2014 at 8:36pm

    Mr. Maher is 100% correct.

    The only other point I would make is, there is no stronger force for electing and re-electing liberals and progressives than right wing talk radio. It not only motivates the liberal base, but also reminds moderate Republicans and independents of just how extreme the hard right really is.

  • April 11, 2014 at 4:47pm

    Are there still that many vaccine truthers out there?
    Must be since this is still an issue.

    Ok then, I’ll go out on a limb right here and predict that there will be zero opposition from Democrats and Liberal groups to Ms. Burwell’s nomination due to her Walmart association. All opposition will come from Republicans who will want to grand stand against Obamacare in an election year.

    This means there will probably be a large number of Republicans who voted to confirm her as OMB Director voting against her as HHS Secretary purely for political reasons. And that will be the hypocrisy.

  • April 11, 2014 at 12:39pm

    I think you all are a bit confused.

    The whole premise of this article is that liberals “might” have a problem with Ms. Burwell’s HHS nominations. No one has actually voiced any objections yet.

    Mr. Lucas’ whole premise is based on a year old Nation article.

    So first and foremost this is old news.
    Second her OMB nomination sailed through the Senate with no opposition and third my previous point about Mrs. Clinton.

    So how can you argue about liberal hypocrisy and lack of logic before there is any liberal opposition to Ms. Burwell nomination?

    Big freakin deal!
    Mrs. Clinton sat on the Walmart board for over 10 years.
    So I guess by this logic liberals will have a bigger problem supporting Mrs. Clinton for POTUS.
