Rachel Maddow breaks down the organizations funding the faux grassroots movement. I'd like to say she is above this, but she is part of her own side when it comes to innuendo and indirection. However, in this case, Maddow is exposing the PR industry that thrives on rage, the enemy of reason.

Oh adg, I don't like the smoke screen laid down blocking People's Eyes from seeing solutions.

Somewhere I've read fear is the opposite of faith. I run into people online all the time who say they have faith yet tell me a nightmare is coming.

One half hour in length, Bill Moyers Journal (6/04/09) on health care reform and single payer health care:

An estimated half of bankruptcies are medically related and 75% of those people had health insurance.

Richard Nixon misused the expression "silent majority", which is actually a pretty timeless idea. The "silent majority" can refer to anyone who doesn't fit the mold of any extreme and gets along with most people most of the time.
