Barack Obama, our next President

Take a breathe and use some punctuation fer krissakes.
Mitch Daniels is a republican; which Democrat would attempt to ban Howard Zinns book?

Daniels' efforts to keep Zinn's "A People's History of the United States" out of the hands of K-12 students and educators has created a firestorm in academic circles since The Associated Press last week published emails in which he urged advisers to "disqualify the propaganda" from teacher training courses. He also called Zinn's book "a truly execrable, anti-factual piece of disinformation that misstates American history on every page."

He was Bush's budget director! He's the one who got this country in the mess it is.!!!
That lightbulb head is all yours baby.

Conservative Propaganda 101: Write Articles On 4th Grade Level

David Corn has published another epic investigative report uncovering a super-secret right-wing cabal formed to shape public opinion via coordinated messaging and organized smear campaigns.

Groundswell is an amalgamation of conservative activists and politicos including Ginni (Mrs. Clarence) Thomas, John Bolton, Frank Gaffney, Allen West, and many more. They also count as members folks from the media including Fox News, Breitbart News and the Daily Caller. They use Google Group correspondence and regular meetups to brainstorm their schemes. Corn obtained some of the emails distributed through their network and what they reveal is at turns frightening and funny. His article is a must read, but here are a few excerpts:

'The Groundswellers feel that they too often lose the political narrative to their progressive rivals. One memo that circulated among members declared,We must reclaim the language and put a face on our messages; tell stories. Write articles on 4th grade level!'

Yeah, thats their problem. They have been reaching over the heads of their constituents by communicating at 5th grade levels and above. What were they thinking? Or perhaps its the other way around. Maybe they were communicating at a 3rd grade level all along and this is a directive to bump it up a notch. Considering the rampant idiocy of some of what we hear from the right, that seems like the more likely scenario.

What???

Having recently transitioned from self-employment to employment I can tell you that I'm paying less than half now for far better coverage that includes dental and optical. The disparity is in my income which is $30k-$40k lower than when self-employed.

so whites make up 86.6% of the population of this state.
but if you look at the latter you'll see that California is #5 on the list while Indiana is #9.
with what you're saying i'd think we'd be well down the list, don't you?
and with the GOP leadership of this state lying about job numbers, why would you even go back to that source you cite?
another thing compare your numbers with the population of California to Indiana big difference there too which screws with those figures.

exactly, brainwashing of the American people into believing health insurance should be tied to employment is one of the biggest scams ever and I have always bought my own too and I choose the insurance not someone else.

Beat Weiner! Good one. No doubt eman will glom onto that catchy phrase in a jiffy; along with that other freak who types magin negro 100 times a day.
Are they toll highways? If not, then what is the advantage?
I believe there are some tolls and some funded by fuel taxes and fees which makes them more of a government contractor than anything. The advantage is that there's a profit motive in private enterprise that drives efficiency that isn't in government enterprises. Quite the opposite in government enterprises. They have a budget, if they underspend this year their budget will be cut next year so there's incentive to spend every penny lest they have to make due with less in the future. I encountered this in the Army. I was the only medic in the company so I had an annual budget. Near the end of the fiscal year command would force me to spend every last penny in my budget even if I didn't need anything. I had all kinds of crap unnecessary to my job accumulated by the time I got out. Guess where it went? I shipped it all home.

As I've been saying, the neocons call the tune and the right-wingers do the marching and heavy lifting without every really knowing why they're doing it other than that they were told. Neocons have very different purposes than right wingers but the right wingers never notice that they're really not getting their way.

MSNBC only exists because of Fox so it only makes sense that they'd be just as ridiculous.

Nevertheless, you're admitting that Fox "News" is swill correct?
