    Only in America are people led around by the television and the talking heads on the so called new's networks.

    Anyone that considers the news anything more then a propaganda machine for status quo should step out of the flag waving fantasy and take a look at reality.

    Bush vs Kerry. Think what you want of Kerry but he went into that race a decorated war hero, and he came out looking like a draft dodging coward. His opponent who didnt even fight in any wars and dodged the draft was heralded as a hero.

    Now its Ron Paul as a racist. What a fucking joke. Its not even working! Ron Paul is still gaining support!

    Kerry was shellacked not because of his service, but because of his Jane Fonda type tendencies.

    Against Obama even the ham sandwich is gaining support.

    Yeah... trying to betray the country to the enemy with little meetings in France... yeah... that's a war hero :rolleyes:

    It was not swiftboaters that first brought Kerry's crap to light,.... MANY of us knew of his punk ass actions well before that

    Ron Paul is a clown.

    I agree with this editorial. http://http://www.unionleader.com/article/20111229/OPINION01/712299993

    Here's one tidbit from the link...

    He has repeatedly said that we should allow Iran to continue to develop a nuclear weapon. This is the same country whose leadership vows death to America, the “Satanic power,” and who wants Israel wiped from the map.

    Honestly, I find the biases from various news sources pretty clear. I mean, who doesn't understand MSNBC is Progressives and Fox is Conservative? It's blatantly clear. The Left leaning biases are on display from the mainstream TV news, the NYTs, HuffPo, etc while the Right gets their point across in the FT, WSJ, National Review, etc.

    Me? I'm a Judge Napolitano watcher and a Reason Magazine reader...which, by the way, would be two news sources that are most definitely NOT "a propaganda machine for status quo". That said, I get your point. I just think it's not so difficult to understand where the biases lie and to make up my own mind.

    People that support the troops sometimes and not other times are chicken shit manipulators and agitators. You either support the troops, or you dont. Your either an American, or your a shitbag pretender.

    Its always the same faggots that wave the flag and want to support the troops when TV tells them to, but whenever supporting the troops means anything other then expansion of the military, increases of military spending, or more legal plunder by the complex well then there is just no support.

    You cock suckers are just rentable Americans. You are an embarrassment to the rest of us on a global scale.

    Ya some lean left, and some lean right. But all support the corporate liberal mentality. All serve power. None are unbiased and fair. None side with the people, they all just pretend to and then collect high advertising fee's from the same banks, investment groups, oil companies, and socialist programs.

    It wouldnt be a problem if our elected officals didnt spin the intentions, motives and projected results of the opposing party ideas.

    Sometimes, a bloviating windbag with delusions of grandeur is just a bloviating windbag with delusions of grandeur.


    Khrushchev pounded a shoe on the podium and exclaimed "WE WILL BURY YOU!", and Soviet Russia had a 3:1 ratio of nukes to America...How'd that one work out?
