TODAY ON TWiB! Obama’s Taxes Are Low! and…?

That Obama is totally hypocritical, see for yourself in this quote from January 2012:

“I’ve been hearing a lot of these Republicans talking about, oh, that’s class warfare, and he just wants to redistribute, and doesn’t believe in work, and he’s trying to create an entitlement society, and this and that and the other.  Let me be absolutely clear:  I should pay more taxes, and folks in my income bracket should pay more taxes, and certainly folks who are making billions of dollars should pay more taxes, not because I want to take their money and just give it to somebody else.  It’s because we’ve got basic investments and basic functions that have to be carried out in this 21st century if we’re going to be able to compete.”

On today’s #TWiBRadio, we discussed America’s pervasive rape culture and the toll it takes on male victims, we solved the mystery of Obama’s missing teleprompter,and we discussed hypocrisy in Scarborough country.

Instilling Fear in Black and Latino Youth

During testimony Monday in the case against NYPD’s stop-and-frisk policy, State Sen. Eric Adams (D-Brooklyn) recounted comments made by Police Commissioner Ray Kelly:

Kelly said that officers focused on that group of people “because he wanted to instill fear in them that every time they left home they could be targeted by police.”

That’s right …

Instill.
Fear.

also on today’s #TWiBRadio, we explored what we could possibly learn from Fox and Friends (spoiler: it’s nothing), conservatives tweeting the paper bag test, perhaps there’s a relationship between obvious studies and commonly held beliefs of extremely stupid people.

Rush Limbaugh, Rap Genius.

And with this, Rush Limbaugh proves you too can rustle papers and say everything wrong and continue to make millions. Lesson learned.

Also, today is the first ever International Happiness Day, but should the state be responsible for providing happiness?

Better Question, CNN: Why Not More Time?

Over the weekend, the two teens accused of raping an intoxicated 15-year-old girl were found guilty. CNN reported from an interesting perspective:

Needless to say, we discussed this and the Steubenville case on today’s #TWiBRadio, as well as the NYPD’s new domestic violence policy, and a literal roach coach.

Can Someone Explain to Paul Krugman What a Troll Is?

Poor Paul Krugman, he is a nerd supreme, but his debate tactics need some serious work. He was unprepared for Scarborough’s epic slipperiness.”

And in other news, the liberal bubble burst at Oberlin this week when someone, possibly (but maybe not), was seen dressed in KKK robes on campus.

Today on #TWiBRadio, I also concede an extended cold war with the chatroom and the GOP’s big budget idea? Defund ACORN. Yes, the same ACORN that went under … three years ago.
