Anyhow,if it is a joke,then we must agree that the intellect of those who watch Fox News has become a joke among many Americans.
And,not only do I think it is funny,but,I agree with their conclusions as supported by the evidence.
No,Obama was not born in Kenya
No,Obama is not a Muslim
No,Obama has not made the economy worse
No,Romney was never ahead in Ohio or Pennsylvania.
No,Romney was never ahead in any creditable poll.
You don't watch Fox News, probably have limited yourself to friends that think just like you, so your dumbfounded when someone disagrees with you. To disagree with you means that individual has no credibility, because you say so. So the "raw truth" of the matter is exactly who in the hell do you think you are to be so judgemental of others you don't even know? Without a computer to hide behind, you would be as meek as a mouse about confronting anyone who watches Fox. Your level of insults would get you poked in the chest, or knocked to the ground. Just as I would expect to be if I were as equally insulting to you. So we will just continue to insult each other, just like the politicians do. Look at how much that gets accomplished.

Obskeptic,Try to remember that in these forums,insults abound,from liberals and conservatives alike.Never take them personally,because there is no malicious intent. It is all good natured and intended to elicit a ridiculous response.
I do watch Fox News,that is why I can attest to their low IQ...

Insofar as getting poked on the chest and knocked on my butt;
I try to avoid fights and would never ridicule ANYONE in a malicious manner,not because I am not capable of defending myself,but simply,because that is not the type of person I am.

I am somewhat familiar with self defense tactics(not bragging)
and anyone who believes they will win a fight by poking someone in the chest is not a fighter.
Let me give you some advice;

Target Awareness:
Once you know a fight is eminent you need to look for open targets to strike. To do this you must be aware of certain “high value” targets on the human body, so that when they are exposed or unprotected you know when and how to strike them for maximum damage.

Target awareness is a continuous process because as an attacker moves closer or further away from you the targets you can strike change. Below is an example of what your internal dialogue should be like once you realize a fight is coming:

“He’s approaching me — is he in range?”…
“Is there anything in his hands?”…
“What targets are open?”…
“Are there any friends around?”…
“Now… what targets are open?”…
“Is anyone behind me?”…
“What targets are open now?”…

Finally you need some basic info about what targets to strike and why,

Neck: the side of the neck is a “knock out” area. The good news is that the shoulder and head offer a natural “funnel” that’ll guide your hand directly into his neck – which means it’s a “high percentage” shot. People rarely protect their neck properly so even a poorly executed shot can often mean instant knock out.

Groin: most guys do NOT protect their groin. They are so “indoctrinated” with the idea that they’ll be punched in the face that they leave themselves wide open for one of the most devastating strikes. So forget about focusing so much on getting in that right hook to the head,(which he’ll be expecting), and start looking for an OPEN target.
A kick to the groin,or,if you are in close,a palm to the groin,grab and twist is very effective.
But,anyhow,since you seem determined to poke me in the chest,Here is what I'll do.
I'll meet you in front of your house next week,if I'm not there and you are,that will show who has the highest IQ.
Relax,enjoy yourself..../..

Inside knee: very vulnerable. One good kick to the inside of the knee can end a fight instantly.

Outside thigh: is the nerve running down the outside of your leg. Even a well conditioned person can’t stand more than a couple good shin kicks to this nerve before buckling.

Eyes: Striking the eyes is a great distraction technique. They are the main sense used during a fight, take them away for even a second and you have gained a huge advantage. An eye strike causes a person to blink

Slap to the ear will cause the person to become disoriented.
Palm to the nose will break nose and cause bleeding

Thank you for that advice. I just get so disgusted at the tenor of attitudes that our citizenry have towards one another. There is nothing inherently superior about liberals. Liberalism has eroded the idea that America is, and has diluted our ideal of rugged individualism and individual responsibility to the point that it is making our great country and its people vulnerable, weak, and dependent.

Yeah, always ratings; somewhere between 'Jerry Springer' and WWE Wrestling but in weaker demographics.
When do ratings tell it all?
Reality TV ratings are through the roof, But do they reflect reality?

Be serious; 20 models looking to hook up with 20 geeks?

5 star chefs cooking with microwaves?

These things do not represent reality at all, ratings wise they're through the roof; But is it reality at all?

Do ratings matter? Maybe you should ask the owners of AM station 1310, here in the Detroit market. It was our only "liberal" station on the dial. That is where I would listen to Tom Hartmen, Ed Shultz, Stephanie Miller, and the Tony Trupiani show. After January first, all you here now is static. That was one button of six on my dial. There is one still on AM950, which is all news, all the time, and the other four are very successful stations with ALL CONSERVATIVE HOSTS. The only exception to that personality list is the Mitch Album show on AM760 after Hannity goes off the air in our market. He has two hours, and he is one of the only decent liberals I listen too. After paying very close attention to politics for the last 25 years, and listening to endless liberals try to make their case to convince me they have better ideas, I am even more disgusted by their divide and conquer, big government, dependence dealing and hate pedaling politics. Tom Hartmen is the ONLY liberal that actually sounds intellectual. The rest of them are hate mongers. But hey, their your hate mongers, and that makes it OK. After all, it's all about winning, right?

So besides being a children hating liberal, your also a porn addict. No wonder you lib's don't want anyone making judgements about you. No one but liberals are entitled to make judgements about anything or anyone, and anytime a lib' says something is so, that makes it so. Pathetic hypocrites that celebrate killing children and indenturing them to the slavery of debt, and a weak country. That is your legacy.

What a great State you live in there, and what an awesome Governor. New Yorkers are embracing and defending a "women's right" to murder perfectly viable humans from the womb in the third trimester for whatever reason that she decides. Wanted a girl and your carrying a boy, just kill it! After all, it's a women's right. Of course they are a little concerned if there were genetic tests that would confirm your carrying a gay child, but not to worry. If that becomes reality, they will simply pass legislation protecting the rights of unborn, gay children. Now, what if there were a test to determine you were carrying a Ronald Reagan conservative, or maybe the second coming of Jesus? I think we all know what New Yorkers would do in that case. Can I have a vacuum please? New Yorkers set the best citizen example and truly reflect the best in us and our country.

Boy are you liberals smart! And so witty too. I just love what liberalism has done to our women. Not only are they stressed out, pill and drug addicted, neurotic professional bread winners like men are, but liberals have turned them into killing machines. Ruthless warriors that don't have time for anything trivial like mother hood. Kill the babies, beat the men down, and now soldier with the best of them, all because diversity outweighs centuries of good common sense. To top it off, we have a president that has declared that "we the government" can effect climate change. All "we" have to do is go to work on it. That statement alone, and anyone that believes it, should be on a national registry that prevents them from owning a gun, because they are crazy.

TICK TOCK!!! FOX BOOTLICKERS!!!

A claim pushed dozens of times by Fox News that security forces were ordered to "stand down" during the September 11, 2012 Benghazi attacks on a U.S. diplomatic facility collapsed after the commander of those security forces testified that he received no such order.

More than a month after the attacks in Benghazi killed U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans, Fox began airing accusations that security forces present in Libya at the time were ordered to "stand down" by the Obama administration. Fox's confused coverage over the months claimed that both a reaction force that was dispatched to Benghazi and suffered two casualties while trying to defend the facility, and a group of four special forces troops in Tripoli received "stand down" orders. This accusation was given new fuel after former Deputy Chief of Mission Gregory Hicks May 8 remarks made before a congressional committee appeared to confirm claims that Lt. Col. Gibson, who commanded a small team of special forces troops in Tripoli, was ordered to "stand down." Fox baselessly speculated that either President Obama or then-Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta gave the alleged order.

A search of the Nexis database shows that the accusation that these security forces were ordered to "stand down" was made in 85 segments on the network's primetime shows by Fox hosts, contributors, guests, and in video accompanying news reports and commentary.

But now even Republicans are admitting that a "stand down" order was never given. According to The Associated Press, Gibson told a Republican-led congressional committee on June 26 that he was never ordered to "stand down."
