Red Eye: We’re Covered!

 

Campus Progress Action students - 50 years from now

 

Happy weekend, happy weekenders!

I wrote a lengthy post earlier, not related to our favorite show, so this post will be brief, succinct and to the point: college students suck.

At least, the liberal ones.

As Greg Gutfeld reported on the most recent episode, Campus Progress Action (part of the Center for American Progress… where’s my chalkboard?), recently made an ad about those scandalous conservatives targeting ObamaCare and trying to repeal it.

I went to the CPA website and tried to find out more about their health care campaign. Here’s what they had to say:

Sorry… we can’t find the page you were trying to reach.

It might have been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable.

Fascinating. I hope they’re better political advocates than they are web designers. They’re probably “general studies” majors. Or, perhaps, philosophy. I love me some philosophy majors. Because I, too, once turned into a cockroach. Then I decided shrooms were bad.

At any rate, if you really want to watch the ad, here it is on YouTube

Here are some of the reactions to the video from the “Red Eye” panel

Monica Crowley

It’s never the people you want to see naked who are actually naked … I am so sick and tired of liberal kids who have never paid takes in their life whining about their woes.

Andy Levy

If they used good looking people, you wouldn’t want to see them get covered.

And, finally, Gutfeld himself

[The ad] combined two things I loved: co-eds and nudity. And they still managed to bore the crap out of me.

Indeed.

It reminds me of a quote from the movie “Clueless.”

What is it about college boys and whiny crybaby music?

Except, in this case, instead of music is stupid liberal politics.

Kids are complaining they get removed from their parents’ health insurance after college. When I went to college, it was mandatory we purchase health insurance as part of our tuition. Even if you had other insurance, you had to have it. Kids should be cut off their parents’ insurance when they turn 18.

“But what if we can’t get work?” one naked full-ed opines. The short answer: then you won’t get your thumbs hacked off in a horrible industrial accident working thankless hours for an unsustainable wage while working for the evil, corporate man … you pathetic little pissant.

Man up. And for pete’s sake, a chest should be convex, not concave. Hit the gym, so mommy and daddy don’t have to pay for physical therapy before you wean yourself off the familial teat.

“But we can’t get jobs!” Of course you can’t. Who hires someone who wrote her senior thesis on the importance of Romanian circus midgets in early Soviet cinema? No one, that’s who.

I hear McDonald’s is hiring, and they have great employee health insur… oh, wait. Thanks, Barack!

But you’re right. A massive group of young people pushing up the benefits expenses paid their parents by already over-burdened employers will be a great way of ensuring there are enough jobs for the rest of us to support your unicorn ready ideologies.

You know, while you find yourselves.

Personally, I think your parents will be totes thrilled when their insurance is billed for medical marijuana, not to mention the black eye you accidentally got from a shop steward at an SEIU rally because you couldn’t afford a purple t-shirt.

When you finally find a job – right around your 27th birthday, I imagine – I’m sure you’ll have enough time to save for your kids to go to school (if they still have school then). No doubt, you’ll be eager to support them 25 years from now, when they’re pushing for the legalization of gay, polygamous pre-tween marriage, and are all hooked on government supplied heroin.

By the way, that’s a lovely Che book bag you have there, little comrades.

AS AN ASIDE: While searching for an image to use with this post, I found a  blog post referencing a Campus Progress Action email, where Jesse Singal says Michael Phelps is an idiot:

I for one am absolutely appalled at Phelps’ behavior. He has set a terrible example for his young fans everywhere, one that could, in the long run, lead to ruined lives and squandered promise. By apologizing for smoking pot, Phelps did two things: He became the umpteenth athlete to legitimize our country’s bizarre, destructive war on pot, and he confirmed his status as one of the tooliest superstar athletes in recent memory.

Now there’s someone with a bright future … in the newly formed pot growers union.

Red Eye” air date – October 16, 2010. Guests: Brooke Goldstein, Monica Crowley and Terry Schappert. Cast: Host – Greg Gutfeld, Sequential Hermaphroditic Sidekick – Bill Schulz and Ombudsman – TV’s Andy Levy

The views in this post are entirely my own (except where I’m quoting.) Neither “Red Eye” nor Fox News endorse or support my “Red Eye” posts. I am not affiliated with the show in any way, other than being an avid fan.

Help a hard working “Red Eye” fan. Support the campaign to get my posts mentioned on the show (just once!) Write to “Red Eye” and mention this blog.

    Welcome to the world of entitlements….jeesh, I didn’t have coverage in my early 20’s. and I rarely needed it. People in their 20’s are generally healthier. And if you end up very sick in ER, you will get coverage, after they take care of the illegals of course.

    So because they can’t get a job (I thought the stimulus package was suppose to fix that?) they expect others to pay for it? Bunch of govt-educated dependent sissies…
