Digg Inc., once the media darling of the Leftist Huffington Post, was at one time, a social-media pioneer once valued at more than $160 million.  Today it is selling for the deeply discounted price of about $500,000 – basically worthless, and I’ll tell you why that is the case.

Like CNN, NPR, and AirAmerica, Digg is proving once again, that mainstream America, tech-savvy America, is not the leftist haven as HuffPo and other rabid leftist bloggers who flooded Digg with nasty posts, imagined it to be.

In a free market, the cream rises to the top, the best products are innovative and responsive to user demands (Apple), the success of some media over others clearly is a reflection of its audience and their preferences.  We now know, without a shadow of a doubt, that Conservative Talk Radio has grown, while Air America (the Left’s attempt at liberal radio programming) is struggling to stay on the air.  CNN’s skewed programming has left it but a shadow of it’s former self due to abandoning fair and balanced journalistic reporting for a Leftist point of view.  Viewers and listeners can discern when they’re hearing slanted reporting.  And I think Americans are basically intelligent enough to be distrustful of government bureaucrats and politicians.  So when media outlets defend, support, promote and even advocate for one candidate over another, it’s clear that viewers will walk away.

Americans don’t want to be force-fed a big-government agenda, especially not by the media (once heralded as the 4th Estate and protector from all evils of government). Instead, mainstream media, and their Social Media henchmen, like Digg, have become nothing more than a propaganda arm for Big Government advocates like President Obama and the Democrats.

Americans are distrustful of government by nature.  So even when a new phenom social media and news-sharing site like Digg shows up, people are attracted by its novelty & it’s potential as a source of news dissemination.  Instead, Digg became the propaganda arm of the LEFT (Democrats, Socialists, Obama etc.).  It was only a matter of time when it’s demise would be imminent, much like Air America and now CNN.

Lesson to be learned:   Sites purporting to be one thing (impartial disseminators of news), while in reality, became whores for the Left’s Socialist agenda (which is inherently anti-American), are doomed for the dustbin of history, and in this case, made Digg a worthless entity, and a real find for the bargain hunting investor.

 

For those who are listening to the liberals propagating the fallacy that everything is “Bush’s Fault,” here’s the reality:   Jan. 3rd, 2007 was the day the Democrats took over the Senate and the Congress.  At the time:

The DOW Jones closed at 12,621.77
The GDP for the previous quarter was 3.5%
The Unemployment rate was 4.6%

George Bush’s Economic policies SET A RECORD of 52 STRAIGHT MONTHS of JOB GROWTH!

Jan. 3rd, 2007 was the day Barney Frank took over the House Financial Services Committee and Chris Dodd took over the Senate Banking Committee.

The economic meltdown that happened 15 months later was in what part of the economy? —  BANKING AND FINANCIAL SERVICES!

The FINANCIAL CRISIS began when Financial Institutions began dumping $5-6 TRILLION Dollars of toxic loans on the economy which were backed and approved of by Govt-run institutions –Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac!

President Bush asked Congress 17 TIMES to stop Fannie & Freddie – starting in 2001 sensing this was was financially risky for the US economy.  Barney Frank told Bush that Fannie & Freddie were in good shape and didn’t need reforming.

And who took the 3rd highest pay-off from Fannie Mae AND Freddie Mac?  OBAMA.  And who fought against reform of Fannie and Freddie?  OBAMA and the Democratic Congress.

In that 1st year, Democrats had to contend with George Bush, which caused them to compromise on spending and spending increases.  For 2009 though, Nancy Pelosi & Harry Reid by-passed George Bush entirely, passing continuing resolutions to keep government running until Barack Obama could take office.  At that time, they passed a massive Omnibus spending bill to complete the 2009 budgets.  And where was Barack Obama during this time? He was a member of the very Congress that passed all of these massive spending bills, and which he signed as President to complete 2009.

If the Democrats inherited any deficit, it was the 2007 deficit, the last of the Republican budgets.  That deficit was the lowest in 5 years, and the 4th straight decline in deficit spending.  After that, Democrats in Congress took control of spending, and that includes Barack Obama, who voted for the budgets.

If Obama inherited anything, he inherited it from himself.  In a nutshell, what Obama is saying is “I inherited a deficit that I voted for and then I voted to expand that deficit 4-fold since Jan. 20, 2009.”

For details on the legislation and events that led up to and caused the 2008 financial fiasco, read economist Thomas Woods’ book:  Meltdown.

Artur Davis, former prominent Obama backer, left the Democratic Party in May 2012 and is now a Republican. Davis expressed extreme disappointment with today’s SCOTUS decision.

And, former Clinton advisor, Dick Morris, said in an exclusive interview: “Now that the only way to get rid of Obama’s healthcare overhaul is via the ballot box, it could persuade more people to turn out and vote against him in November.”

It’s going to re-energize conservatives, tea party movement, libertarians and any who treasure their liberty, to come out and vote against Socialist Big Government provacateur, Barack Obama.

Look what it’s done for the Romney campaign, today alone — he’s already raised over $1 million and it’s not even noon yet.

Obama’s Blame Game

You need to STOP blaming Bush for everything. This economy is your baby and has been so for over a year now. Americans are tired of your BLAME GAME.

In your speeches, you come across as arrogant, aloof, a know-it-all. This style of rhetoric may work on the campaign trail, but it’s turning everybody off to you.

Congressional approval level is at its lowest – because of the far left agenda of Pelosi and Reid. These people are history. They are some of the most despised, irresponsible spenders this nation has ever seen. We want them GONE!

Going after Republican candidates (your campaign mode) is the wrong thing to do. You need people in Congress that know their constituents, NOT just the far-left wing of their constituency, which, as you know, is NOT mainstream America. Ordinary Americans work hard for their money and relish time spent with family and leisure activities. It is morally wrong for YOU and CONGRESS to take more away from us when you can’t stop SPENDING. The amt you pay your staffers is criminal. Benefits to govt workers is triple that found in the private sector. This will bankrupt our nation and force generations to come into fiscal slavery.

Stop with the BIG GOVT agenda. We want TAX CUTS for EVERYBODY NOW! Kennedy and Reagan did it right! Don’t be another Carter! He was the worst President ever.

Keynesian economics is a FAILURE. The Market works and you need to stop bashing private business. That is what pays YOUR salary. That is where ALL INNOVATION occurs. Govt is a worthless institution that robs from hard-working people to keep itself in power.

Americans are well-informed, and whether they drive a truck or not, should not be a point of ridicule by you, or the insane Keith Olberman. You and the LEFT need to stop showing your HATRED for ordinary Americans.

READ: Mark Levin’s masterful book entitled Liberty and Tyranny. Over 1 million copies sold and read, despite NY Times’ refusal to review the book!

And the drive-by media, bent on painting the “extremist” brush on our military veterans, it’s only a matter of time that all dissent will be shut up by this President and his henchwoman, Janet Napolitano. Her Department of Homeland Security released a controversial intelligence assessment. She stands by the report sent to law enforcement that lists veterans as a terrorist risk to the U.S. and defines “rightwing extremism” as including groups opposed to abortion and immigration.

So if you oppose abortion or illegal immigration, Janet’s Department can technically label you a terrorist! This is so scary, so reminiscent of Nazi Germany in the 1930s. Stalin also labeled all of his critics as enemies of the State, and swiftly imprisoned, silenced and murdered those who opposed him and his policies.

It’s coming folks – another Nazi Germany is being reborn today in the U.S. You wait and see how Obama will strip all of your rights away and continue to intrude on private enterprise and continue to steal private investment and savings from hard-working taxpayers, to pay for his criminal agenda – redistribution of other people’s wealth.

How much more Botox can this woman inject into her face? She’s starting to look as bad as Joan Rivers, or Cher – who have been left expressionless following their mannequin-turning procedures. This delirious woman continues to waste taxpayer dollars by using expensive military aircraft to fly herself and her family to Europe on a vacation. I am outraged by this kind of brazen, slap in the taxpayer face, flagrant disregard of their oath of office and promise to curb spending by elected officials. Obama’s administration says one thing (turn your thermostats down and curb your spending), while he and his Democrats are doing just the opposite.

Pelosi should be fired on the spot. She and her idiot sidekick, Harry Reid, are incompetent legislators. Why? Because they only know how to spend your money. They don’t give a damn about you the taxpayer.

Time to stop these idiots from dragging this country down the road to bankruptcy and turning it into a third world country, by firing these idiots next election.
