Time for a Brainteaser!

Okay kids! Given recent headlines, now is as good a time as any. This puzzle is a new depiction of that old e-mail chain letter.  Leave your guesses in the comments section, but don’t peak if you want to figure it out for yourself.

Moyers Misses It

Posted by Ryan on April 20, 2007

Bill Moyers is in his own world, talking to the same people, hearing the same nonsense, but he’s decided to do a documentary on how the MSM was not anti-war enough in the lead up to the Iraq War.  Citing that most news stories got their information from the White House, Administration sources, and the military, Moyers whines that the press didn’t probe deep enough into opposing the war before it happened!

Well, who else are you going to get real information from, the MoveOn Moonbats?  Did they realize that getting Saddam was popular amongst the American people back then and since they are populist pigs, they just went along with the crowd?

So, what is new here anyway?  The MSM have been replaying those months before the war for over four years now.   But, I suppose this “fresh” look at their complacency will demonstrate how lazy they have actually become.  Moyers concludes that they blew it.  He should be reporting on how they’ve continued to blow it four years on.

Yale Overreaction

Posted by Sal on April 20, 2007

Yale is banning the use of stage weapons in student theater productions in reaction to the Virginia Tech shootings.  When is the left in this country going to stop these useless, ridiculous rules that serve no other purpose than to let the left feel that they’ve done something?  Who honestly believes that taking guns or swords off a stage at Yale will prevent another such attack?  Needless to say, the Yale students are not impressed.  Says student Sarah Holdren: 

Calling for an end to violence onstage does not solve the world’s suffering: It merely sweeps it under the rug, turning theater — in the words of this very play — into ‘creamy bon-bons’ instead of ‘solid fare’ for a thinking, feeling audience. Here at Yale, sensitivity and political correctness have become censorship in this time of vital need for serious artistic expression.

What Sarah doesn’t realize is that this is business as usual for the left.  They don’t like groups such as National Right to Life, the NRA, and groups of free citizens criticizing them close to an election, so they ban ads 60-days before an election that mentions a candidates name.  They don’t like the foolish comments of a radio talk show host, they put pressure on the network to get him off the air.  They don’t like the rise of talk radio and the new media, they try to reinstate the unfairness doctrine.  The left has always, and continues to censor speech when they don’t agree with it or it offends them.  No wonder they are often referred to as communists.

Noonan’s View

Posted by Sal on April 20, 2007

No, not Noonan who is a regular contributor to the comments section of this site, but former Reagan Speechwriter and now-columnist Peggy Noonan.  Peggy Noonan has the uncanny ability to cut through the minutia of a tragedy and get to the heart of the matter.  In her latest column, she asks “Where are all the grown-ups” in relation to the Virginia Tech shooting.  She reflects how we as a culture have gotten so used to evil, and now tolerate it treat it with such a cavalier attitude and coarseness, putting mass-murder on-par with the words of Don Imus, a woman’s “right to choose” or Global Warming.  Worth a read.
