Michael Penn commented on Scott DeLong's blog post Fox News Paper
"Fox News may be entertainment but it's also telling those who watch it exactly what they want to hear. I prefer Al Jazeera and then I throw in a few others from around the world to round it out."

Gerald Payne commented on Scott DeLong's blog post Tea Party Paper
"Racists, bigot's and fundamentalists come along with every generation. Just as football players and new age daydreamers, bigots will always be a proportion of the electorate. Obama never inspired racist thought, he just reawakened it. We would…"

Scott DeLong replied to Gerald Payne's discussion Is the real reason for religios conservatism fear?
"Fear is a powerful tool that can control the masses. The religious right is using that fear to gain more power and is doing that with good effect. In a sense, I have to praise them for using fear to control people. It sounds horrible, but they have…"

Hello Scott, I am happy to share a friendship with you and learn more about you. Although I share an aversion for the same people and their types as you, I have, perhaps, a more optimistic view on humankind and life in general. I have a great interest in politics, economics, humanism, and love to garden, read non-fiction books, especially history. I foresee some interesting discussions with you, although I am not a philosopher.

They said their goal was to bring “fine and balanced journalism” to the American public (Greenwald 8). It has been…

Hubris: the Republican Party and the betrayal of America

Tea Party Paper

Posted on May 21, 2015 at 7:30pm 5 Comments

I wrote this paper 3 years ago, in my Humanities 102 class. In this paper, I wrote about how the Tea Party was really a front for corporate america to sabotage Barack Obama's agenda.

            Over the past few years in America there has been a movement known as the Tea Party movement that is trying to bring notice to big government and wasteful spending through a grassroots style movement.  But is this truly a grassroots movement as the Tea Party claims they are?  There are major…
