Rep. Michael McMahon (D-NY) Town Hall Meeting in Staten Island While the meeting went on inside, the crowd out side the meeting that was unable to get into the meeting began debating the health care issue amongst themselves. There was heated debate between them both for and against the public option and the health care reform in general. Mullin's World has requested an interview with Rep. McMahon, so now we wait in eager anticipation of an interview about the issues.
"I believe everyone should have health care coverage. We're paying for it anyway. It's a trillion dollar debt, our tax money is going to the uninsured anyway so why not have a solution to this problem.
-Tamara Blackwood, Staten Island NY
I'm glad we are finally tackling some of the issues in our broken health care system...we already give the public option to the poor and elderly. I feel the working poor and the middle class deserve the same option."
-John Pillarella, Staten Island NY
"I'm here to to support health care for all because it's the moral thing to do. I definitely support the public option. The other side is a do nothing party, the Republicans have done nothing."
-Richard Reichard, president SIDA http://www.sidems.org/
Heat, that's what I have been taking for calling O'Reilly, Limbaugh, Beck and Hannity dirt bags. Well, I don't take it back they are double dirt bags. They have no social conscience, their ideas victimize the working poor and people of color and minimize the importance of the middle class. Their right Wing pandering has contributed to murder and gay bashing. They are disgusting shills for the Right Wing Republican Conservative evangelical agenda. That agenda is pro white, pro big business and at the expense of the American poor, the working class and people of color except white. Do they have a social conscience? NO. They don't care about the struggles of the average American to survive, the unemployed, the poor, the sick and disabled, they are true scum bags. They wrap themselves in the flag and talk about Democracy, while they spout lies and half truths and innuendos. They lie to the senior citizens saying that Obama will take away their health care, death panels, ignoring the fact that the Republicans had tried to do just that in 2009 by attacking medicare, and lie to the middle class, and preach bigotry and racism with racist code words and slanted news. They are the archetypical hypocrites and demagogues. They wouldn't know what democracy is if it woke them up in the middle of the night and smacked them in the mouth. The shame of it is that there are a lot of gullible people out there who don't know the facts, don't think for themselves and get their news from Fox, white man, News and believe their bull shit. Just listen to what they say and after a while, if you are a decent human being you have to know what they are saying is wrong, and hurts people. Simply put, they are bad people and they do bad by what they do. Listen to the words out of their own mouths.
Rush Limbaugh, said;
"The phony soldiers." --on U.S. service members who support withdrawal from Iraq
"They oughtta change Black History Month to Black Progress Month and start measuring it."
"Look, let me put it to you this way: the NFL all too often looks like a game between the Bloods and the Crips without any weapons. There, I said it."
"I mean, let’s face it, we didn’t have slavery in this country for over 100 years because it was a bad thing. Quite the opposite: slavery built the South. I’m not saying we should bring it back; I’m just saying it had its merits. For one thing, the streets were safer after dark."
"You know who deserves a posthumous Medal of Honor? James Earl Ray [the confessed assassin of Martin Luther King]. We miss you, James. Godspeed."
"They’re 12 percent of the population. Who the hell cares?"
"Take that bone out of your nose and call me back'(to an African American female caller).
Bill, Macho Man, O'Reilly, said;
"So anyway I'd be rubbing your big boobs and getting your nipples really hard, kinda' kissing your neck from behind...and then I would take the other hand with the falafel thing and I'd just put it on your p***y but you'd have to do it really light, just kind of a tease business..." --as quoted in a sexual harassment suit filed against him by a Fox News producer, 2004
"Nobody can identify the body if the head is chopped off and notable tattoos are taken off with a cheese grater." ~O'Reilly commenting on the proper way to dispose of dead hookers.
"I couldn't get over the fact that there was no difference between Sylvia's Restaurant and any other restaurant in New York City. I mean, it was exactly the same, even though it's run by blacks. Especially the black patrons: there wasn't one person shouting, "Hey, m'fer, I want more iced tea."
- on his meal with Al Sharpton at Sylvia's in Harlem; The O'Reilly Factor, 9-24-07
" It`s hard to do it because you gotta look people in the eye and tell `em they`re irresponsible and lazy. And who`s gonna wanna do that? Because that`s what poverty is, ladies and gentlemen. In this country, you can succeed if you get educated and work hard."
Sean Hannity, said;
"It doesn't say anywhere in the constitution this idea of the seperation of church and state"
I'll tell you who should be tortured and killed at Guantanamo: every
filthy Democrat in the U.S. Congress.
Glen Beck, said;
"I'm thinking about killing Michael Moore, and I'm wondering if I could kill him
myself, or if I would need to hire somebody to do it. No, I think I could. I think
he could be looking mein the eye, you know, and I could just be choking the
life out -- is this wrong?

David Brooks on Right Wing Media and the GOP It take one true Republican to say it like it is and begin to build the GOP as it should be, The Loyal Opposition.
"The rise of Beck, Hannity, Bill O’Reilly and the rest has correlated almost perfectly with
the decline of the G.O.P. But it’s not because the talk jocks have real power. It’s because
they have illusory power,because Republicans hear the media mythology and fall for
it every time." -David Brooks, New York Times
