I haven’t said much about the Harold Camping rapture thing because I always found him to be so transparently false, and so many bloggers were whaling on him rather thoroughly and deservedly. The simple and timeless lesson is that people who actually read the Bible are far less likely to be duped by such things than those who just follow a personality.
It is sad that the media didn’t portray this incident that way. I have no issue with them reporting on the story, but if they would have noted just how many Christians took him to task that would have been helpful. I know a “few” Christians but can’t think of one that took Camping seriously. But it is so easy for them to portray people like Camping or Democrat Fred Phelps as mainstream examples of Christianity (ever notice how the media always points out that Phelps is a “minister” but forgets to mention his political affiliation?).
What’s the Al Gore connection? Al & Co. have peddled all sorts of distortions and falsehoods, just like Camping. They profited greatly from it, just like Camping. But the media isn’t exposing the lies of the global warming fraud and the hypocrisy of the movement’s leaders.
Community organizer Obama predicted that his $800 billion dollar stimulus program would keep unemployment below 8%:. . .
Ooops! Never send a community organizer to do an economist’s job.
. . .
How about all that spending? Surely ALL the spending must have created more jobs?
Hans Bader of the Competitive Enterprise Institute links to a new study by two economics professors that shows that 550,000 jobs were LOSTbecause of the stimulus bill.
If you only get your news from the mainstream media and/or Lefty sources then you are sure to be woefully misinformed.
