Finally, some sane talk about Michael Vick and his punishment for dog fighting. I mean, when a commentator is right, a commentator is right. And Tucker Carlson is so right that it feels instead like he’s a complete and utter buffoon.

But that’s the mystique of Tucker Carlson. He is so very wrong on so many levels that he makes me never want to be right again.



H/T to Fanhouse for the video link

UPDATED (12:03 p.m.): FYI: I guess this didn't come across as I intended. The above post is/was completely sarcastic. I don't think Michael Vick should have been executed, and I think Tucker Carlson is an idiot for saying so.

Tucker Carlson: Vick should have been executed

These liberals are lost souls wondering around life in their fantasy lives they think is reality.

Really? My soul ain't lost, we just get tired of the right wing scare mongering, and saber rattling. And if it's anything you guys don't like you just yell Commies! at us. Hate to break it to you but if we are so hammer and sickle red, then you need to go throw the iron cross on and admit your nazi. Either or right? Now me...see I don't buy into the rampant terrorism the republicans facilitate, and to prove the point, I own a nice and shiny .22 revolver...but oh wait didn't liberals want to take our guns and make us like Australia? Well...that's what the terrorists at Fox News and the 700 Club, and Rush Limbaugh and the oppressive conservative media wants you to believe. But...it's just a lie. I'm a democrat...and a gun owner. ^-^ I'm also Christian and Pro-Choice.

There isn't one rich liberal who will give up his job for these so called welfare receipients.

And yet if it wasn't for welfare we'd still be in the great depression...oh yeah what party caused that? Oh yeah the republicans. Who saved us with the New Deal? Oh yeah the Democrats. Makes you wonder why every legislation made to help the common person or improve the quality and safety of life in America has been opposed by the right?

The only way to talk down a liberal is to use logic and common sense.  They don't posses that ability to use logic and common sense.

Okay that's funny but it's the conservative that doesn't have common sense or logic.

There isn't one liberal here that can prove RAISING TAXES works and CUTS don't....

Raise taxs...to fund programs that help the poor, the minorities, heck the middle class that is under consistant threat by the right wing...You see...tax cuts help the people that don't NEED social programs, and if you don't NEED them then you don't see the value. But I gurantee you, you close the doors on the health centers, and public safety like police, fire department, medicare, etc.etc. because there are literally a book worth of programs out there and I could go on and on...then well...you'd have a riot on your hands, and a bunch of conservatives would be going "But....but...where's may government such and such...?" But yeah philosophy of conservatives has always been live and let die. No hand outs, and privatize everything. 

There isn't one liberal here that can prove SOCIALIZED medicine works.

Well...we know PRIVATIZED medicine doesn't work either.

It's pretty simple, when people have more money in their bank accounts they spend more. 

Because the concept of saving is discourage by the right wing, and very few expect the wealthy or at least well educated have an understanding of how to properly do it.

When history is written...Bush will go down as a President in a favorable manner; while Obama will be considered one of the worst Presidents we've had since Jimmy Carter.

Hmm...you know...my history books say nothing about Carter being the worst...in fact he was one of the better presidents we have had. Now as far as Obama goes, his biggest mistake was promising too much too soon. It's going to take 2 decades to undo the damage Bush Jr. has caused. But that's how it's always been democrats have to spend thier first semesters in office fixing Republican messes. Woodrow Wilson had to fix everything Taft screwed up...and was so good they had to amend the rules for terms because he would have kept winning until he died. FDR the miracle of man himself was the best he had and cleaned up the horrible affairs right wingers caused. Carter wasn't a godsend but he did at least restore accountability to the White House that Nixon destroyed, and Ford as okay as he was as a person was a lame duck. Reagen about destroyed the nation with Trickle Down Economy which by now we should know DOES NOT WORK. Bush Sr. was a monster and liar, and a false war hero even worse then Kerry was...not to mention alot of other choice things I could say. Clinton was great..just horrible choice in women. And now we have Obama...and to be honest it's going to take two terms for him and the next donkey up to fix things.

Tucker Carlson: Vick should have been executed

Seriously now. Can anyone on this thread show me where these tax cuts are creating more jobs?


I can show you where tax revenues went up after the tax cuts:

Can you show me where class warfare creates jobs?  Profit creates jobs.  How does a President who's anti-profit help create jobs?

The President does little to create jobs.  Bill Clinton took credit for what the free market actually did which was creating jobs during the internet boom.  It was the businesses that created the jobs.   It would be nice to have a President that appreciates business and works w/ them so they can create jobs, but being so anti-profit, I don't think Obama would be can ideologically accept what they need to create jobs.  He treats big business as a bigger enemy than he does Al Qaida.

Tucker Carlson: Vick should have been executed

How's this proposal: If Carlson can bring Vick down in the open field (Vick in his healthy state), Vick can be executed.


If we can replace Tucker Carlson w/ a pack of angry pit bulls, then we have a deal

Still seeing a lot of disingenuine anger towards what was really an empty statement (where we didn't get the full context of the segment by cutting off the video when they did).  Funny thing the same people who are attacking an empty statement support the action of torturing dogs or they just hate Fox News b/c they aren't a blind conformist acting as a state new agency for the other messiah in this story, Barak Obama.

The saddest part of the story is that it is actually about Obama's support for the killing and torturing of dogs.  Maybe that's why the ycut the video off early.

Tucker Carlson: Vick should have been executed

Seriously now. Can anyone on this thread show me where these tax cuts are creating more jobs? I will pay you for your information. This is newsworthy. More so than Vick and that AZZ on the CON_NET. Bill Clintons tax cuts worked because they went to the right people. Bush's tax cuts went to about 2% of the people. Those folks dont pay taxes. They have off shore accounts for all profits and business to offset taxes paid on those earnings. While gettting tax cuts they cut employment, cut healthcare, and give out unheard bonus's. Yep those bus tax cuts sure worked. What makes you think it will work again? Prove me wrong. All of america wants to know!

Tucker Carlson: Vick should have been executed

Exactly what I expected... the liberal left wing radical zealots flood this message board on this topic. While what Tucker Carlson said was certainly politically incorrect as well as somewhat dumb, it does not deserve wrath of those still pissed off at all the consevatives that kicked the collective crap out of you last November 2nd. Get over yourselves... the country has woken up and YOU are no longer going to run roughshod over the rest of us. i know... you can all move to Venezuela with Cindy Sheehan and worship your ideal leader: Hugo Chavez.

Tucker Carlson: Vick should have been executed

Thank God this Idiot is not a Judge in our Judical System. DO you all remember "Jimmy The Greek" who got fired for telling the truth and was fired because CBS and the world thought he was a racist. This individual needs to be fired and do public service work for the rest of his life. God forbid people like this are actually walking around real human beings "Mike Vick" included. Someone with Balls please show this dude to the ranks of the unemployed.

Tucker Carlson: Vick should have been executed

What Michael Vick did was cruel and unusual but I agree that animal blood falls under a different category than human blood. Not to mention that Tucker Carlson is irrelevant.

Tucker Carlson: Vick should have been executed

Why do people continue to give weight to what Carlson, Colbert and Stewart have to say? Those 3 are responsible for all the hate that is festering across the nation. Take them off the air and the country will be a better place.
