Who made you guys so cruel to all life? Yeah, if you happen to like fall into a stinky swap and get covered by leaches and other parasites, why instead of respecting THEIR rights to life and nurturing them with your own blood and flesh you like burn them away and get rid of them and stuff.

Parasites are people too ya know…

Who made you guys the thought police? Yeah, let’s fire (or better yet, ruin!) all the people who we can’t agree with, so that our opinions can rule the earth, free from scrutiny and dissent. Then we won’t have to waste any more time learning patience and the pain of having to listen to others who are different from us.

The NYT’s loss will very soon be some other National Newspapers’ gain! The REAL TRUTH HERE isn’t about Ben Stein shilling for some internet lender! It’s about Ben Steins Opposition to the Obama Administrations Quasi-Legal Machinations concerning GM and the Obama Administrations Illegal firing of GM’s CEO, Rick Wagoner! That kind of interference by Government into the Business World, be it The Auto Industry, The Steel Industry, or The Airline Industry, is if anything most Ominous and Every American Citizen should be wary of it! When you look at the Governments entry into the Passenger Rail Service Industry in the late 1960’s and early 1970’s, what did you get? You got Amtrak, A Government Owned and Operated Passenger Rail Service that has never made a profit in it’s entire existence, and to top it off, has had numerous Fatal Accidents either caused by Faulty Equipment, like warped tracks that should have checked and changed, Trestle Bridges that Trains go over that should have been replaced over 70years ago and the list goes on and on, not to mention Operator Error, where the Engineers that we entrust with our lives, are High on Pot, Crack, Alcohol and if that’s not enough, these very same Engineers are Texting and/or talking on their Cell-Phones instead of doing their JOBS! Don’t get me started on the United States Postal Service, another Government Run Entity that’s in a Government Run Shambles!

You should know by now that change never lasts. Intolerance of your views will be OK by then and the guys who’ll be on the outside again well get the shaft as usual – but with this BS to remind everyone about, I seriously doubt anyone will care about your whining either. Shilling for “a sleazy company which exists only to extract large sums of money from those who can least afford it” sounds like just about everyone at the NYT and Washington to me.

Finally! I’m only sad it was for the wrong reasons. But then again, there’s so many reasons to cast Mr. Stein into the hell of irrelevance. This guy was such an endless shill for anyone in power, his sole concern was so totally being “in” with the movers and shakers that he was a total disservice to the genre of financial media entirely. It was an infuriating process just to witness his repeated prayer and submission to the idea that there was no economic crisis in the form of sneering and belittling people who called this Depression (and it is) right on target.

Oh, RIP to John Hughes who at least knew how to use Ben Stein properly.

Typical for a right winger to fail to understand the workings of a great journalistic institution.

It’s not that Ben Stein is wrong, it’s that he consistantly misleads people.

His movie was a fraud.

His career is a fraud.

Good riddance to Ben Stein.

I went to “Ben Stein Watch” expecting to see something bad for you to make fun of, and I agreed with everything Ben had to say!
