About Me

In writing the "About Me" portion of this blog I thought about the purpose of the blog - namely, preventing the growth of Socialism & stopping the Death Of Democracy in the American Republic & returning her to the "liberty to abundance" stage of our history. One word descriptions of people's philosophies or purposes are quite often inadequate. I feel that I am "liberal" meaning that I am broad minded, independent, generous, hospitable, & magnanimous. Under these terms "liberal" is a perfectly good word that has been corrupted over the years to mean the person is a left-winger or as Mark Levin more accurately wrote in his book "Liberty & Tyranny" a "statist" - someone looking for government or state control of society. I am certainly not that & have dedicated the blog to fighting this. I believe that I find what I am when I consider whether or not I am a "conservative" & specifically when I ask what is it that I am trying to conserve? It is the libertarian principles that America was founded upon & originally followed. That is the Return To Excellence that this blog is named for & is all about.

Responses - Hannity Purposely Misleads - Unemployment Stats For Women

Below are two responses that are representative of exactly what I expected from last night's subject posting.  Neither responder is a left wing Democrat.
The first responder has no use for Sean Hannity & the second defends him.
Personally I stopped listening to Sean's radio program many years ago & only started re-watching FNC - O'Reilly Factor - after Judge Napolitano's best program on all of TV, Freedom Watch, was abruptly taken off the air a few months ago – try to explain to yourself why FBN did this.  Sean's show tagged along for me (after O'Reilly on FNC) & it has been hard to watch (stomach) on many occasions.
Sean (& Rush Limbaugh) has a supposed radio audience of between ten & fifteen million people (out of 310,000,000 Americans).  Although their audiences are a small portion of the total population it is a large enough group that commands a marketing audience who buy their advertised products so Sean & Rush throw enough red meat to their audience to keep their listeners engaged.  The problem for these announcers is when people start to notice some unprincipled & erroneous biases like I pointed out in the original posting.  I personally have noticed many more than a few slips from each of them.
Please remember that Janet Reno won both sides of her college debate competition re abortion when she presented both pro-life & pro-abortion positions equally as persuasive – & yet she obviously only believed in one.  Just imagine how persuasive Sean &/or Rush would be if they decided to present the statist side of things on their programs.
The standard for readers of this blog (& listeners of the Neal Boortz radio program) is to only follow what you know to be true, what you can prove to be true, & what makes sense to you.  This is the standard that I use in vetting every message I post for you.
---Response #1---
I missed it ...cause I never watch Hannity...
---Response #2---
Am not sure what the problem is?  Of course Sean uses stats for the political reasons the other side does with a vengeance.  Hannity has said that corporations do not pay taxes when he is talking about a company propped up by BO.  Maybe you should have listened longer. When the CEO of GE moved jobs to Mexico he eliminated American jobs.  Percentages can be misleading - don't know why anybody uses them, for exact information nothing beats the true number.
I'll guarantee Sean's statements were used to rebut the left's.  I would not give up on him - there is more truth that is stated from him than fiction or just half truth commentary from anywhere else. 
I think you're making a mistake.  Even if Sean made a mistake if no one rebuts anything it will be the same when BO is elected.
Sorry Doug I will continue to watch and listen to Sean although I am watching more science shows now anyway because everything is getting repetitive in the political world.
