Take a look at this ad that Moveon has produced by merging youtube videos together:
What do you have here? A group of self identified dupes who actually believed the hype that we conservatives and some liberals saw in 2008. It is like a political Darwin award.
Oh and to the woman who says she doesn’t need the Money let me remind her of the Surber Challenge:
From Glenn Reynolds: “Hey, Fareed: The Treasury accepts donations. Make one, and post the receipt.”
This triggered a thought. Why don’t we skinflint conservatives with our miserly ways and narrow minds write a check to the Treasury and show that even though we oppose higher taxes, we are willing to — as patriotic and loyal Americans — voluntarily bail out our national government?
While liberals talk, conservatives act.
So I wrote a check for a hundred bucks today to United States Treasury and mailed it to:
Gifts to the United States
U.S. Department of the Treasury
Credit Accounting Branch
3700 East-West Highway, Room 622D
Hyattsville, MD 20782
Don Surber’s challenge was only for $10 but he ponied up, have you? Has Moveon?
There is an old saying about how it is better to keep your mouth closed and be thought a fool than to open it and remove all doubt. The people in this video were played in 2008 and at the urging of Move-on now have been played for suckers twice.
It’s pretty sad, but as always in the US we get the government we collectively deserve.
