Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

Sensationalized journalism sells and that's all FOX cares about. Truth be damned. They don't report on "scandals". They actually create them and idiots like yourself swallow it whole.
Speaking of swallowing...

NBC (and MSNBC) has been caught selectively editing audio and video clips several times.

Remember the video showing a man with a gun at an Obama rally? This was reported as a blatant incident that seemed to support their racism narrative...until we see in the actual video that the man with a gun was black.

More recently a Rock Center video was published at NBCNews.com that deceptively edited an Hasidic Rabbi to give the appearance that he was trying to cover up or hide sexual abuse within his community.

If there was ever a definition for the Republican Party, that's it. Isn't it you and yours that are always talking about killing off liberals. LMAO
The good news is Obamacare's soft underbelly is about to be exposed for the weak and partisan law it is.

And those who dared to assume they could impose such a law on the rest of us will also be exposed for their incompetence, lack of judgment and leadership.

Then you can defend them.

Shutdown takeaway: the US wants a fair society, not 'defund Obamacare' crazy

As Obama looks for a budget deal to forestall another shutdown, he should know a majority of Americans back economic justice

The rest of the world must have been fascinated at the spectacle that was the US government shutdown and threat of default on our public debt. Here is a country that not only has no public debt problem, but can pay any foreign creditors in its own currency – that is, money that our central bank creates. Yet, even this "exorbitant privilege" – as Barry Eichengreen titled his book about the dollar being the center of the international financial system – was not enough to assure the world that Republicans would not cause disruption by attempting the impossible.

As expected, the Republicans were defeated and got nothing for their efforts other than a record low approval rating. The New Yorker's satirist Andy Borowitz summed up their "noble cause" with a fictional quote from Ted Cruz:

The dream of keeping poor people from seeing a doctor must never die.

The outcome was never much in doubt. The Tea Party and its friends do not control the majority of the Congress, nor could anyone expect House majority leader John Boehner to defy the Chamber of Commerce, the Business Roundtable, and the rest of America's most powerful business lobbies after they made it clear they would not stomach even a temporary, technical default on US Treasury obligations. Indeed, it is testimony to the extremists' base of support within their party – and their own stubbornness – that they made it as far as they did.

If only the Democratic leadership had this kind of pressure to respond to its voters – including the fear of losing primary elections that plagues so many Republicans – now, there would be some democracy. This is because the majority of Democratic voters, unlike the Tea Party and its allies, have demands that are in line with the majority of the country.

My point is a dysfunctional family is culturally accepted by the liberal left, regardless of costs to society.

No doubt material for a SNL skit.

They had to have a niche....a market...
You...the dumazzz...did not know that?
even Shitty cars like the Pontiac Aztec had fans...Doophus!
Murdoch grabbed onto the popularity of The National Enquirer in launching Fox News. He recognized the dumbing down of America and it's appetite for sleaze. He took it from there by creating a product he knew would appeal to the "dumazzz" segment of society.

In 1998, "In response to charges that his papers debase culture and intrude into privacy, he almost concedes. "Had we tended to sensationalise some [stories]? Yes. I think so. Sometimes too much I would agree. But ... everyone does it, whether they are making chewing gum or television sets, the idea is to sell as many as possible."

And, there you have it, all Murdoch cares about is profits. Sensationalism sells.

I don't see it that way. I see it as helping the poor live healthy lives so they can become productive members of society. If you take away the anxiety associated with not having health insurance, you give them a hand up in more ways than one.

Explain to us how, because you cannot control your kids, that you have to beat them?
How about you explain to us how, you can completely control an individual entity, equip with a brain capable of thinking &, making childish decisions on it's own. You can't &, a child makes childish mistakes. Some of which is too late to take back or, you talk won't alleviate the consequences. Had you taught your child the lesson of consequences &, repercussions for their acts, they could've escaped them. Not all children are the same &, not all courses of teaching is the same. Along with the environment! The reason your kids probably know about guns is because you taught them. My kids know about the because, they've heard them just blocks away. I knew about them because I grew up in the projects &, I heard them &, bought them at 12 yrs old. Like I said, y'all think because, it's not the white way, it's not the right way. When in fact you're wrong because, the upbringing off my kids &, I are totally different than your kids & yours.

Kansas Supreme Court indefinitely suspends license of former Attorney General who speciously prosecuted Planned Parenthood and George Tiller

In addition to the violations directly related to actions falling within the purview of his job, the court also found that Kline’s appearance on Fox News’s “The O’Reilly Factor” during the host’s “Tiller the Baby Killer” campaign to discuss his ongoing investigation of George Tiller constituted official misconduct.
