    Infomercials push a product and rave about how great it is but never show the other side, people who are unhappy with the product. They also try to deceive you about the total cost of the product.

    "Three Easy Payments of 29.95!" The 29.95 is all that you really remember and you don't realize that with shipping the total is over 100 bucks! :eek:

    MSNBC does the same. The paid "InfoHacks" read the teleprompter and push the current product the the Administration is selling: Health Care.

    How many times has the total cost gone up since they've introduced this crappy product? The President even had to bring MSNBC hacks to the White House and read them the riot act about the party line.

    "These threads are stupid" which really means, they hit the nail on the head.

    MSNBC is representative of one great truth..... The Dangers of G.E. to the Republic. Say no to the "Oligarchy Monopoly State". G.E. is a disease.
