Taxing “violent images”? Anyone who favors giving the government that type of power is an idiot!
[T]hose present for the meeting included Franklin Graham, son of the evangelist Billy Graham and CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, and Barrett Duke, the vice president of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission, the Southern Baptist Convention’s public policy arm.
Graham, two people in the meeting said, told Biden the government should consider taxing media companies that broadcast violent images and produce violent video games.
“He floated ideas like the idea that violence should be taxed so that those proceeds would go to help victims and their families,” said Rabbi Julie Schonfeld, the executive vice president of the Rabbinical Assembly.
Biden told Graham that there was “no restriction on the ability to do that, there’s no legal reason why they couldn’t” tax violent images, Clark added.
Franklin Graham, another Overly Social Conservative who seemingly has no clue what liberty is. What a douche nozzle. Guess what Graham, when you give government to tax “violence” you also give them the authority to determine what “violence” is.
Poor Chuck, his pathetic testimony before Congress is not his fault, he just cannot remember anything!
I might have said what I do not remember saying, but if I did, I did not mean it, I think.
Chuck Hagel is disavowing a comment he reportedly made six years ago tying the State Department to Israel, according to South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham.
Graham announced on “Fox News Sunday” that Hagel sent him a letter, saying that he did not recall making the remark in a 2007 speech at Rutgers University. In that speech, the former Republican senator from Nebraska reportedly said the State Department was an adjunct of the Israeli foreign minister’s office. Graham, also a Republican, called that alleged remark “disturbing,” as critics said it was part of a pattern where President Barack Obama’s nominee to be the next secretary of defense has taken stances seen as hostile to Israel.
But Hagel has furiously sought to rebut criticism over Israel and appears to have done so in his letter to Graham, who had sought clarification.
“He did not recall saying that,” Graham said of Hagel’s letter. “He disavows saying that. … If that’s true, that would end that matter.”
“I will take him at his word,” Graham said, “until something else comes along.”
Come on Lindsey! Wake up! He is LYING. Good Freaking Grief, just when I was ready to say some good things about the Senator Graham he reverts back to Wimp Mode!
