Despite the violence of the anti-war protests, the ‘60s demonstrations were about giving peace a chance. The Occupy Wall Street crowd has a new anthem that is anything but peaceful.

Lefty protests are filled with anti-Americans, communists, socialists and anarchists who all want ‘revolution’ and to ‘f*** the USA.’

The big news here is that two separate news unions, including the newspaper guild, the recognized union for many print and online journalists, and the Writers Guild of America, East (WGAE) are fully behind the radical message of Occupy Wall Street.

Vice President Joe Biden isn’t safe to take anywhere – even local radio. After famously embarrassing himself by dropping the F-bomb on national television, Washington’s one-man gaffe fest made a bid to one-up himself Tuesday.

It would be easy to dismiss the Occupy Wall Street protests as another disorganized liberal whinefest, because that’s basically true. But there’s more to it if you dig deep enough.

While conservatives see nature as existing to serve mankind, many liberals have an almost pagan worship of the Earth Mother.

When Sarah Palin ran for vice president, journalists provided some Alaska-sized examples of character assassination, attacking her by a factor of 18-to-1, calling her McCain’s “problem” and her views “incendiary.” So far this election, the media are aiming for Texas-sized attacks on that state’s Gov. Rick Perry.

According to to the Washington Post, the "$38.6 billion loan guarantee program" has created just "3,545 new, permanent jobs." For those not doing the math at home, that means more than $5 million per job. What it left out was that, while campaigning, Obama promised to create 5 million "green" jobs. He's about 4,996,455 short.

Apparently, Romney’s planting the flag as the establishment candidate and the CNN/Tea Party debate is the latest evidence. That means he doesn’t care that the actual primary voters are anti-Big Government.

The huge noise you just heard was the sound of … nothing. A bit of nothing that was quite something – the latest job numbers.

This election season, journalists have partnered fully with the left to depict conservatives in the most vile ways they can muster. While it's nothing new, the sheer volume of attacks is noteworthy. What's worse is that many are coming from supposedly legitimate news operations. Every national conservative politician battles these media characterizations. Ronald Reagan was crazy or stupid, depending on the lefty arguing it or the phases of the moon. Nancy was allegedly the power behind the throne, so she was crazy and evil. President George Bush once ran the CIA - evil. His son, President George Bush, managed to be crazy, stupid and evil. (Lefties liked to depict him in Nazi regalia or as a chimp, or both. Conservatives who use identical phrasing or images for Obama are, of course, category four - racists.) Vice President Dick Cheney got the Nancy Reagan treatment - crazy and evil.
