I also heard about this from the local radio station. It's basically an attempt at a new FCC regulation to monitor the "accuracy" of the news

Yeah, because everybody knows there are no reporters or press room in the white house (eye roll)

Here skippy, right from the FCC, or is that too much like fox news for you?

They want to imply that it's to mean human, government 'hall' monitors standing over Brian Williams with a sword at his throat as he reads the news but, it might simply be actual TV monitors carrying a feed from Washington. That is, if it's anything at

Quit deflecting and admit you were wrong.

I was not supporting dogs statement of the obvious, I was disproving your statement that they only wanted to install television monitors in newsrooms. Drink more obam-bam kool-aid, its good for you! I know, you hate facts that make your messiah less than godly.

Did you bother to read the information in your link? Exactly what about it do you object to?

Seems to me like Obama is your Messiah since that is what you are always calling him.

Perhaps only for those that use the title, "News".......Politic al Talk and Courtroom coverage would have more spin latitude.....

Okay, try to follow along, I'll try to go slow...

The FCC... needs to "control" the news in order to ensure "the critical information needs
(CINs) of the American public (with special emphasis on vulnerable/disadvantaged populations)."

Sounds all rainbows and unicorns, doesn't it?

The government also needs to "control" the food our children eat. To ensure their health, of course.

The government also needs to "control" healthcare. To ensure the health of ALL of us, of course.

The government also needs to ban guns, for the sake of the children, of course.

Ban smoking in public for the health of all, ban smoking in cars with children in them for THEIR sake. WILL SOMEONE PLEASE THINK OF THE CHILDREN!?

The government needs to collect all of our phone and email data, for the sake of national security, of course. I mean, who could possibly be against that??

So of course the only logical thing is to control the news we're allowed to see.

Now... what part of this DOESN'T sound like socialism dictatorship?

Lay down, sheeple. Your government is in complete control of the situation. Good thing you love being told what to do and how to act.

I sometimes wish our president WAS a dictator so that he could stop republicans from doing things like this:

http://www.bilerico.com/2014/02/breaking_az_s...

As well as from state "leaders" stopping there citizens from joining a union to get good wages and benefits, as in the VW plant in Chattanooga, Tn. Thanks to Sen Bob Corksoaker, VW now may not expand into the US at all!

Those dam Republicans! At it again!

How DARE anyone try to prevent the gays from FORCING their agenda on our children! How DARE a company refuse to pay $45 an hour to unskilled, uneducated yokels to screw a lug-nut on a wheel!? How DARE a company try to make a profit! We need strict government control to prevent these companies from hiring people to make the economy work and instead give all control to the government to pay these people not to. Because if EVERYONE can't be rich, then EVERYONE should be poor!

Except our leaders, they can still be rich.

And only union workers should earn a good wage. Non union workers can suck it.

Isn't that pretty much it? Look out for your own, screw everyone else. Yet you slam those on the other side because you claim they're doing just that? This isn't that hypocrisy thing again, is it?

And okay, AS, just for you. Change of topic.

Had a lengthy phone call from my mother this evening. She's talked things over with my sisters and her life-long bff, but needed advice from a man's POV. She's going through a divorce and couldn't understand her soon-to-be ex's controlling nature. Especially with things like money. Well, his job was an IRS investigator. If you didn't pay your taxes, he was the one you were answering to. And his last wife was sick for a long time and he had to be in control of the finances and everything else.

So I told her it wasn't that he was controlling because he was just an @zzole and needed to control YOU, specifically. But it was just how he was "wired" and he couldn't really just turn it "off," so to speak. Blah blah blah, we went on and on, but she said she understood more thanks to my advice.

You spend most of your childhood getting advice from your parents. It's nice to be able to use the knowledge you've gained growing into adulthood to give some advice back.

Sorry to brag, carry on. Sieg heils Obama!

<quoted text>While I was never taught to spit out the sirs snd maams, I kinda fell into the habit in college just because I had a friend who tossed out a 'yes sir' or 'no sir' in casual conversation. Kinda rubbed off on me. So I'm certainly not knocking it, but are you really saying you consider it rude to NOT speak that way?
Sorry, I got busy, wasn't ignoring y'all.

I don't necessarily consider it rude not to use sir and ma'am ever, but there are a lack of manners up here in general. 7 year olds should not be talking to me like I am a peer.

I had a boss who would actually yell at me for saying "yes ma'am" in the office. She was a whack job, though.

FTR (this is responding to JMW's comment, but i'm too lazy to find it), I will often respond to a question from the boys with "yes, sir". Doesn't mean I think I'm of lower stature that my 8 or 5 year old, I'm just modeling how to be polite. They also ask why I always call my husband "my love" instead of his name. It's just the way we talk in this house.

Thanks for posting.

If you are serious about getting more activity consider that one gets more flies with honey than with vinegar or, alternately

Be Nice, Be Respectful.

Seriously. And if you don't understand the mechanics of that, it means that just because someone has an opposing viewpoint does not mean you call them names. "All this[liberals/conservatives] and every that[Democrat/Republicans] " is neither accurate nor attractive.

I think we're looking Orwellian in the rearview mirror.
It's scary. I no longer even claim to be a proud Repub. I swear they are all evil now and m eyes have been opened the last year.

The socialist nature we almost are is scary, since it's happened so slightly. I can't believe we can chip away at a Constitution and no one bats an eye. I wonder what year we lose our first world status...
