    If only people 'fact checked' what barry and the feds are doing the way they do some TV guy, the nation would not be in the state its in.

    You know......because MSNBC was running Olympics, and because CNN was running something else that I wasn't really interested in, I tuned into FAUX Noise right at the beginning of Blech's speech.

    It was disturbing.

    Yes, that fucking racist hate merchant SHOULD be fact checked. At least then, when he goes on his diatribes about revolution and overthrowing the government, people won't listen to him and crash their planes into buildings in Austin.

    The writer is obviously an apologist flack for progressives and Keynesian economic voodoo....Most of the linked "fact check" op-ed is GIGO, notably:

    Progressives also gave us the 16th Amendment, the income tax, the Federal Reserve, interventionist foreign wars, and the greatest centralization of power in the New York-D.C. corridor in American history....I guess those piddling little facts don't count, though.

    And that's pretty much the point....Looks like the author failed to mentioned that the progressive/socialist wing of the Democrat Party stole the term "liberal" in the 1920s, to obfuscate their true proclivities.

    the author definitely has selective memory, but the article does debunk some of the stuff already being spouted about beck's speech.

    Selective memory my ass.

    You don't gain yourself any credibility in a "fact check", by one-upping the subject of your piece in the telling-less-than-half-the-story department.

    Maybe you should watch the speech before you decide to fact check it. Tends to help you out better.
