Who is David Hale? An Insight of Rockford Tea Party's Hypocritical Organizer...[UPDATED]

David Hale is the organizer of the Rockford Tea Party and a City of Rockford Precinct Committeeman (Ward 8 Precinct 4).  Hale is perhaps best nationally known for his stint on Fox News and The Daily Show with Jon Stewart after locating the fourteen Wisconsin Senators who fled the state to delay a vote on a controversial budget proposal.  What is not as well known is that Mr. Hale is a brute who often resorts to lies and manipulation to get his way.  The mother of his child even had to file an Order of Protection against Hale in 1999, which may make one wonder if Hale is also a violent person.   Being a curious person with critical thinking skills, I decided to uncover the mystery of David Hale.  I was surprised by how much irresponsibility and hypocrisy I found. Not to mention the socialist and fascist ideas Mr. Hale possessed.

Lower Politician Wages

Over the past few days, while surfing a popular social network site, I have come across this post:

Salary of the US President. ..$400,000.
Salary of retired US Presidents ...$180,000.
Salary of House/Senate...$174, 000.
Salary of Speaker of the House...$223,500...
Salary of Majority/Minority Leaders... $193,400...
Average Salary of Soldier DEPLOYED IN IRAQ $38,000...
I think we found where the cuts should be made! If you agree, repost

Well, I of course started looking things up and thinking- Why do we pay our politicians so much? Some people tell me it's to keep corruption out of government, others say it's to attract the brightest minds.

I believe politicians should make no more than double the federal minimum wage. ($7.25/hr) Why? Well, because I think our politicians are way out of touch with the average American. Corruption exists already in our government, why not try something different?

The Fox News "Fear and Smear" Mantra

It's long been known to anyone with half a brain that Fox News and their comrades manipulate and distort facts solely for financial and political gain. When there aren’t any facts to twist, Fox News and Co. will just make them up, as needed. I read an interesting article on the Long History of Race-Baiting at Fox News which helped spur my writing today.

Many of us get our news from a variety of outlets: radio, TV, internet, newspapers, and magazines. All of which, at some point, have spelled out in explicit detail the blatant accounts of the lying liars at Fox News. These hosts include, but not limited to: Bill O'Reilly, Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, and Glenn Beck. We should add Alex Jones and Rush Limbaugh because they are certainly not exempt here. Also, let’s not forget to include Rupert Murdoch and Roger Ailes themselves. They are, after all, the masterminds behind the "Fear and Smear" mantra at Fox News.
