enrage an entire nation huh? how can you even say that you have nothing credible to back that statement. just the whining of liberal fools and you post it as if its a fact. typical of a liberal drone. i would bet its music to the productive in the uk's ears who are sick and tired of the socialist policies that have crippled their once great country

Are you really that sensitive?  An article talks about Murdoch's tweet and you get all upset.

Do you honestly thing a media mogul like Rupert Murdoch gives a rat's tail about you?!

Just look at his name. I think he really cares. He thinks every progressive, socialist, and liberals are comming to get him. It's doubtful he's even a real conservative either anyways.

You guys don't like to think too hard do you? I mean, I get it, it's easy to just throw labels on people like "liberal" this and "socialist" that- typical rhetoric. It makes it so the critical-thinking part of the brain doesnt have to operate that often, because everything is black and white and simple. Whatever suits you man- I'm just proud you made it into a whole paragraph.

tekknyne, you really are a self-absorbed douche bag. Don’t you have anything better to do than impress yourself with your witty cut downs of people who don’t share the same opinion as you? You are a typical liberal tool who thinks people who don’t agree with you are idiots and have no right to an opinion. It’s that very arrogance by the likes of people like you and the Hollywood crowd that got W elected to a second term and will get Obama bounced after one. You are so full of yourself that you can’t see the forest for the trees. Do you really think the politicians you support are any less in the back pockets of the 1%ers than any of the republicans? If so I would suggest taking off the sandals, putting down the pipe and get a REAL job! One last thing oh brilliant one, you can look county by county, state by state, country by country. The farther left they lean, the worse their financial picture is. Check that fact Genius!

And you have evidence to back that up Freak, or are you just blowing smoke up your ass? Ah, love the liberal bashing yet don't understand what liberalism is. And how did liberals or Hollywood contribute to W. getting re-elected? Please explain that to me. Are all policiticans on the payrolls of 1%? You're probably right, since money talks in this country. And what REAL job do you have? That's weird, last I heard Germany, Canada, Japan, Chinia are doing pretty well. Remember all those countries are consider socialism to you. Even though no country is totally socialist.

Carlidan, I would first point out the state I live in, Illinois, fiscal disaster, see California and New York as well. All run by democrats for decades and the three worst financial situations by far in the country. Conservative states that are doing well, Alaska, Texas, Wyoming, Oregon to name a few. The country’s you site, Germany, really… Germany is the most conservative Country in the European Union and the one that has to step up and bail out the most liberal of them all Greece. Have you picked up a paper lately? Also see France, Ireland and England, liberal and on the brink of disaster. Next Canada, yea they are doing better since the big push to drill. Just hope you’re not a resident there over fifty and in need of a knee replacement. I have bad news for you, Japan is conservative. China, really, you’re going to use them as an example of a liberal utopia? Next, I don’t know how old you are but I’m just going to assume you remember the 2004 election when a-holes like Alec Baldwin (like how he talks to his 12 year old daughter), Sean Penn, Susan Surandon, Michael Moore, etc. just outright insulting anyone who voted for Bush or was thinking about it again. That was motivation my friend, and it brought conservatives out in droves to the polls. Mark my words Carlidan, when Obama breaks out his billion dollar smear campaign this year, because he sure won’t be able to run on hope and change again, conservative’s will be reenergized once again. Oh, and where do you think Obama is going to get that Billion dollars from, the 99% mostly right? Look, I’m not one of these blanket haters; I think Obama has done some good things. I also think this country needs more than one strong point of view for balance, but I don’t like being insulted just because I may disagree. And since you asked I do have a REAL full-time job, I am a card carrying blue-collar union member (private sector) and I have a business on the side that gets 15 to 20 hrs. a week of my time. So yea, I’m productive and I don’t have time to troll the internet and insult people I don’t agree with.

Carlidan

What I don't get is your doing the same thing with your comment. You insulted him back, what's the difference between him and you? You say you don't have time, yet you had time insult him. You kidding me Wyomming? Alaska and Texas aren't doing great. Doing better than most states. Yes. But that's becase they rely alot from the federal goverment for funds. Got to love the military instutions there. California is doing bad is because people here want  to build things like solor power, super speed trains, schools etc.. but don't want to pay for it. They just keep shuffle money around and don't want a tax increase to pay for them. I like how you like your union(private) but is probably against public(union). Reason why. Don't know. Glad you have a businiess and doing well but saying you and only you have a REAL job makes you a douche. Everybody have a REAL job. As long as you make money, it's a JOB. They way you put it. You think a person who picks fruits or works at McDonalds don't have a real job but a hedge fund or CEO has real job.

Just FYI Germany is more socialist than England and France. So wouldn't that mean it's more liberal? People in Germany rely more in goverment than the rest of the other euro countries you mentioned. I could send you info to back it up if you want me to.

Also the reason Canada is doing well is BECAUSE they have better economic struture than us. You think just because they drill there, that's why they are doing so great. And I love the lies about Candian healtcare. Ask any Candian, THEY will tell you  your just BSing. We have the worst healthcare system on average compared to other nations. You know where we are ranked right? Last I checked, we are ranked 39. You might think that great.

Carlidan, first off yes, I did insult him back, but I’m not calling him stupid or invalidating his existence because I don’t agree with him. I just think he’s a tool. Yes I used the wrong adjective when I used the word “REAL”. You are correct; any job that earns a pay check is REAL. I have respect for anyone who earns an honest living regardless of what that may be. I have been a busboy, grocery bagger and what I support my family with now is nothing world changing so I am in no position to bash someone for what they do for a living nor did I. I should not have used an adjective and just said Job, because he comes across to me as a privileged punk who has never worked an honest day in his life. Sure I could be wrong about that but it really doesn’t matter, he was calling the other opinion stupid and invalid because he doesn’t agree with it and that’s why I don’t like him. I only point out that my union pension is private and not crushing my state with debt like the public unions are. I also am not saying those people don’t deserve pensions, so please don’t put more words in my mouth then bash me for them. If you want to make excuses for the politicians (democrats and or republicans they all suck) putting back breaking debt on its people well, I’m not sure what to think. I know here in Illinois they just doubled our income tax and we still are in horrible shape. This is BS, they are spending money the state doesn’t have, period. Look we could go back and forth about politics but why? I bet if we sat down we would agree on more than we disagree on anyway. Lastly, you are damn near as good at pointing out my hypocrisy as my wife is, I’m going to have to work on hiding that a little better. Now let’s get back to our tech addiction shall we…

Carlidan

Roger that. Hey I hate what some polictians are doing. Don't  get me wrong. But you have to put some blame on voters too. They never look at what they are voting at sometimes. Look at what intiatives the propose every year closely. Just don't watch ads to base your votes. Your wife must piss you off alot. :)  Peace out.

Liberalism is a mental disorder and the religion of the greedy do nothings that want the productive to finance their existence.

avatar

tekknyne

I think you might be on to something. CEO's and bankers and lawyers aren't the greedy ones, liberals are! Of course! You are a genius! *facepalm* I can't even validate your statement with any sort of truthful response, it's just too much lol.

Do any of you know him?  You guys are sheep to the media.  If he is a 1%er so what, he prolly earned it.  When you stop feeling sorry for yourselves and one day become a 1%er hope you are not faced with the idiotic hatred.  If anything I hope he starts to hire more people, he the only one that will be creating jobs, not these sorry ass spoiled haters......

I think the truth hurts, and I think its funny. People that are offended just have thin skin.

"Do any of you know him? You guys are sheep to the media."

Um. We're talking about Rupert Murdoch. If you could label one person as THE MEDIA, you'd be hard pressed to find someone who would better suite the title. I don't know him personally, but I would wager I "prolly" know a hell of a lot more about him than you do. I think what his newspapers did in the UK was criminal, and the type of journalism most of his empire practices is immoral at best, and evil at worst.

As for how we should just become part of the 1%, well, if we go by statistics, that would only be possible for 1 out of every 100 people who read this. What should the rest of us do?

Hating on people because they're rich IS stupid. I agree totally, and dislike that attitude.

However, the Kool Aid you're drinking is just as short sighted... and not even in your best interests.

tekknyne

LOL. You're swinging from Murdoch's nu**s, the CEO of Fox News. And we're the sheep!?

avatar

tekknyne

You need to do some research my friend. Most of the 1% are hedge fund managers and lawyers. If you think making money in those professions constitutes "earning" then I beg you to try and eat legal papers or dollar bills.

 

LOL @ you for being a greedy fool and supporting Murdoch.

I somehow doubt that the country is broke because of holidays the average person takes.

This is an incredibly powerful rich man, and he's telling the people that they take too many holidays, implying the economic problems are their fault?

It's incredibly insensitive if nothing else, and no, I don't really think it's the truth...

Seconded

tekknyne

It makes sense that he would spew such spin/lies since Murdoch is clearly a part of the 1%. He's obviously confused and thinks forces like global economics actually applies to European countries when all he has to do is shuffle around a few billions and any country can take all of the holidays they want without any financial repercussions.

I dont get what the hoolpa is over. What he said is the exact truth. I mean are people so stupid they dont know that the UK is its self is having this discussion right now and talking about getting rid of some of them? So heres what i have to say .  .  .

 

 

“Maybe Brits have too many holidays for broke country!”

AGREED

tekknyne

C'mon dude, you're not that big of a tool right? Quit swinging from Murdoch's nu**s and join the rest of humanity. The goal for a global economy is not for us all to be slaves. Last time I checked, Holidays are AWESOME!

Quit picking on him! He's old, naive and confused. Why are you all such monsters?

This is news? Funny thing about humor is that if it's funny it's only because it's usually based on truth.
