• Welcome Purple People

    To me Purple People are those of us who are neither Republican Red nor Democrat Blue; we find ourselves in between. The internet often represents those on the far left or the far right; this site is for those of us in the middle.

    Since there are a variety of non-conformists that consider themselves Independents, here's a clarification. The point of view of this blog is basically Realist/Libertarian light...

    -Pro Small Government, bureaucracies tend to be wasteful and inefficient.

    -Government should not be the morality police.

    -Less waste, lower taxes. Taxes are okay if spent wisely. Roads and schools need funding. Be smart with my money and I won't complain.

    -Government shouldn't babysit adults. Help kids and assist people who have serious problems, but stop trying to protect everyone from themselves.

    -Foreign policy should be conducted by people with brains and experience. Think, don't be reckless and don't be politically motivated. Remember that the U.S. is not the only country in the world.

    -Tone down the rhetoric and remember your manners. Play nicely and don't belittle people who disagree with you.

Psst, CNN Everyone Can See Your Bias

Breaking news on CNN Matt Damon is terrified of Sarah Palin!  Another Hollywood celebrity freaked out by the Alaska Governor.  So I believe the tally is Madona thinks McCain is Hitler, Whoopi thinks Palin is a Nazi, and Matt Damon is hiding behind his couch until Sarah Palin goes away.  Adding to the classy comments Dr. Damon believes McCain is about to die, all this from another celebrity member of Team Hope. 

So not only is this at the top of CNN’s website, but so is the Obama campaign’s charge that he’s being swift-boated.  This from the campaign that has has a melt-down over the Palin nomination.  The campaign that in the last two days has called the McCain/Palin ticket liars and corrupt, because Palin pulled the plug on the ‘Bridge to No Where’.  The charge of swift-boating comes from the McCain campaign calling Obama’s ‘lipstick on a pig’ remark sexist.  The headline “Palin is target of cyberspace hazing” is rather ironic considering the headline above it is essentially an example of cyberspace hazing.

The media can’t seem to understand why everyone thinks they’re biased.  Well here’s a clue, your reporting on inflamatory remarks by celebrities as if they were important news stories; and your stories repeatedly are framed with the slant of the Obama campaign.  CNN may not be able to see their own bias, but everyone else can.

  1. Palin’s bogus “Troopergate”

    You might find this interesting….

    There is a time-line and info.


    Monegan admits to the Anchorage press that NO ONE (Gov. Palin, Palin’s husband or Palin’s staff) asked that trooper Wooten be fired.


    Monegan is a governor appointee and can be fired at any time for any reason (or no reason)

    The chief investigator/overseer (Alaska State Senator Hollis French) admitted (before any depositions or investigating) that it will be an “October Surprise”, “damaging to the governor”, and even hinted at possible criminal charges (aka: impeachment).


    NOTE: How in the heck can someone (who is intellectually honest) take this investigation seriously when Mr. French has apparently prejudged the case!!! No wonder the Palins, and their staff, are “lawyering up”.

    According to Fox News, several top Palin investigators were spotted at
    Obama Headquarters (Alaska) on July 30!!!! Can you say “conflict of interest?”

    Members of the investigative panel who also support Obama:
    Chairman: Sen. Kim Elton, Juneau
    Sen. Hollis French, Anchorage
    Sen. Bettye Davis, Anchorage
    Sen. Lyman Hoffman, Bethel
    Rep. David Guttenberg, Fairbanks


    Overall, IMO, they won’t find anything, but will spin it to say she “abused her power”.

  2. When will these celebrities get a clue and realize that they are hurting their own cause? Middle america *distrusts* acandidate that is endorsed by them. Obama doesn’t need their fear and smear tactics.

    Geesh. Get a life, Matt.

  3. okay so here’s my problem. i cannot figure out why these overpaid, undertalented, pointless, useless, so called celebrities think anyone in the country who has a brain in their head gives a rat’s as$ what they think.

  4. Not only that, but they are also heavily (and selectively) censoring posts - here is my situation a few hors ago:

    CNN ticker: Cohen: Jesus was a community organizer
    Posted: 01:23 PM ET
    Rep. Cohen defended Obama’s community organizing on the House floor.
    (CNN) –Barack Obama was again compared to Jesus Wednesday, but this time not by Republicans claiming the Illinois senator has an inflated view of himself.

    Bellow is my comment at this (rest of the CNN article after my reaction to this inanity):

    Post: “Hitler was a community organizer, too - so were all the Communist butchers from Eastern Europe, from Lenin, Stalin to those who fell in 1989. The Glibamatons would be better off by exiting this kind of silly comparisons.”

    Guess what - the CNN thread was closed at 247 posts, mine nowhere there - and I freesbeed it at the level of 40-plus posts!
    Anything new here? Do you find my comment out of place of inaccurate? Or is this plain partisan censorship?

    CNN con’t: Speaking on the House floor, Tennessee Rep. Steve Cohen sought to defend recent attacks over Obama’s stint as a community organizer by picking up a recent blogger refrain, that “Barack Obama was a community organizer like Jesus.”

    The comments come days after that part of Obama’s resume was belittled at the Republican convention by both former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani and VP candidate Sarah Palin.

    “He worked as a community organizer,” Giuliani said last week as the convention crowd erupted in laughter. “Ok, maybe this is the first problem on the resume.”

    “I guess a small-town mayor is sort of like a ‘community organizer,’ except that you have actual responsibilities,” Palin then said the night after Giuliani spoke.

  5. Good article on CNN. I’ve been watching these people for many years, and they don’t have a clue that the world is not Liberal as a norm. Whenever a network has to keep telling it’s viewership “we’re a name you can trust” why, that’s a sure tipoff to watch out.
