If someone is not happy with my English here, since we have 13 languages translators already for those people, I can request somebody to translate for me, why not it's already paid by our government.

I think you have some Russian blood in your family tree, and most recent lineage is Eastern European. Be proud that you escaped the oppression, and that your family here will not have to endure that in their future. Because you were strong...they will be privileged.

Two thumbs up!

Thank you Ari on your kind word. Yes there is Russian blood in my 'veins'...yes I'm proud to live an American dream and left Europe. My people were used in WWI as an example as fighters and very strong since VII century when Justinian Roman Emperor sent our people to fight tribes that use to attack Romans.

No I don't own Harley but I like my Altima.

Hey Uncle Tab, I think they took their politically illiterate asses back to their slam the President site where the loon must be, that is if she isn't sleeping it off getting geared up for tonight. hahaha

Watching the shooting coverage in Atlanta on Nightly News. So sad. What a miracle there was no one hurt. The were talking to some parents of those killed in Sandy Hook.

OMG those idiots in Syria attacked those children with chemicals. What a crazy bunch of animals in that country. All they want is to be free and have a democracy.

I have a special article for you to read, reminds me so much of that loon and the ignorant repukes that do the same, like the house weeper. It is dead on. Long but worth the read.

SHOCKING! DID YOU READ this HEADLINE? Good, Now Please Read the Story

An alarming trend I’ve noticed in this “business” of political commentary has been the habit by far too many individuals who choose to read headlines, then form their entire opinion on an issue based on those headlines rather than reading and understanding the full story.

I recently wrote an article where I purposely tried to create this phenomenon. In this article I created a headline which seemed like something that would trigger a response, wrote 1-2 paragraphs of a fake story, then went on to explain that the story was fake and why it’s important that people read articles instead of simply reading headlines.

My prediction was that about 30-40% of the Facebook responses would come from people who hadn’t read the article.

Well—I was wrong. It was actually more like 80-85% of the comments I saw on Facebook were made by people who never bothered to read it, instead choosing to react to the headline itself.

So at that moment all of those individuals who decided to just read the headline had formed a “fact” off a headline which was completely made up.

Then even more recently I wrote a partial satire piece poking holes in the flawed logic felt by many that President Obama is no different then President Bush because he supports a handful of the same policies. The title of this article was Poll: Many Americans Believe President Obama is No Different Than a Killer Whale.

Yet, even with that ridiculous headline, I would estimate about half of the comments I saw on Facebook were people who thought this poll was real. One would think with a headline that absurd, if someone was going to comment, they would at least have taken the time to read the article to find out what the heck was actually going on.
Unfortunately, that wasn’t the case. Had they taken 30 seconds they would have realized the headline was completely fake and saw the real point of the article.

And there is always a point to what I post. In this case, it’s exposing just how easily manipulated people can be, and hopefully encouraging you to question and look into everything before choosing to form an opinion on it. Because this is how the domino falls and leads to falsities being spread so easily as truth — once you choose to take a snapshot of “facts” based only on headlines and then use those “facts” to share your opinions with others, then those blatant falsehoods become harder and harder to stop and correct.

It’s truly an alarming trend. An entire population of people that politicians and political groups know will only read headlines, creating “facts” based on those cleverly written headlines. The article (or television ad) might be pure garbage, loaded with biased lies and misinformation, yet millions of people are shaping their entire political ideology based on a handful of “SHOCKING” or controversial words that are specifically designed to manipulate people.
We talk often in this country about how bad the media has gotten, how bad our politicians are and how corrupt our government is–well, those arguments are valid.

But let’s look at facts:

Our media is driven by dollars which are generated by what we click and read.
Our politicians are elected by us.
Our government is controlled by the politicians we’ve elected.

If we demanded better information from our media, they would provide it. If we voted for better politicians we’d have better individuals representing us. And if we had better politicians running our government it would be far less corrupt.

All of this starts with having a more informed public. But that stands absolutely no chance at happening when millions of Americans continue basing their entire set of “factual ideological beliefs” on skillfully crafted headlines which are often highly misleading or completely inaccurate.
So when I see stories about a man exposing himself on a subway getting tens of thousands of views, while a well researched article on climate change gets less than 2,000—it’s ironic when I see many of those who clicked on the subway article (but not the climate change piece) complaining about our country “going down the wrong path.”

That is the wrong path.
And while we all give into “guilty pleasures” from time to time (and there’s nothing wrong with that) we cannot sit there and continue to allow ourselves to have our entire system of beliefs built off only headlines.

Because trust me, the big wealthy corporate players trying to corrupt our government and manipulate policies to favor them know these trends and know what works. In fact, they’re counting on you developing your beliefs in the laziest ways possible. Create the “SHOCKING” or misleading headline, count on the readers never bothering to actually read the article or research the information to see if it’s credible, and boom–whatever “fact” they want people to believe suddenly becomes reality for millions.

Which is how “death panels” falsely became part of the Affordable Care Act,“birthers” got traction and millions of people still believe the U.N. is trying to pass a treaty which would force Americans to give up their guns.

We must stop allowing ourselves to be deceived by those who are counting on deception to get something they want.

Because at the end of the day, the media is going to give us exactly what we watch, share, click or listen to. The question is, what’s that going to be? Millions of Americans assuming “facts” based off a “SHOCKING” headline or citizens actually making the effort to try and be better informed?
That decision is going to be up to all of us.

Love the first comment by srsmith:

Back in the early 70's a High School teacher taught me this lesson. He handed out a test to the class and told us we have 30 minutes to complete it and we could leave whenever we finished. He also added for us to read the instructions first. When I read the instructions they said to read through the entire test before answering the questions. This was the only instructions. Because everyone wanted to leave early they just started taking the test as fast as they could. I, knowing that someone is always trying to catch me, read the entire test. When I finished I took the test and gave it to the teacher and left. This was about 4 minutes after the test was handed out. One more person left right after I did. No one else got up and they couldn't believe we were done. You see the last question on the test said " If you followed the instructions and read the entire test before taking you can sign the bottom of this paper and leave early without answering any of the other questions." So I learned to read through anything entirely because you never know what coming at the end.

Sounds just like the loon, the house weeper, and most republiCONS. eh? hahahaha

Bunch of illiterate losers.

Love this one, like I said if you aren't doing anything to get red flagged you don't have anything to worry about. I am happy we have the NSA.

Calm Down, The NSA Is Trying To Protect You

Glen Greenwald, the journalist who published the NSA documents leaked by Edward Snowden, recently announced that he intends to publish more of the tens of thousands of documents Snowden gave him and that the information will tell us even more terrible things about the United States government.

This is just downright terrifying, considering the deep, dark secrets about the National Security Agency Greenwald already exposed us to not too long ago when we were informed that the government searches through our phone calls, emails and search engine activity to see if we’re plotting a violent attack on innocent people.

This invasion of privacy is not only immoral but also illegal, and it’s very important for the government to follow the law. The White House has always faced a fair trial every time it kills someone and is even subject to having its credit cards taken away whenever it doesn’t pay its bills on time.

Alright, no more playing around. If you haven’t already figured it out, the last two paragraphs were entirely sarcastic as was my labeling of the leaked NSA documents as “deep, dark” and “terrifying.”

I honestly don’t understand why the information Edward Snowden “leaked”(information the intelligent portion of this country already knew about) is such a big deal. There are a sh*tload of wannabe terrorists living in the U.S. and we have repeatedly proven that they like to talk to each other and to obtain information via email, Facebook, and even (gasp) on the phone.

That’s why the NSA exists: to find these potential threats using personal information that they can access simply by contacting a certain phone or tech company.

Those who were most alarmed at the news of the surveillance programs must not be aware of the idea of servers, the existence of gigantic databases that contain records of our phone calls and Internet activity. The very fact that this database exists should come with the assumption that it was created for a select amount of powerful authority figures to delve into it should they find it necessary to do so.

Sometimes, bad people don’t have distinguishing bank statements, criminal records or connections to past offenders. What they do tend to have, at least these days, is a habit of posting threatening rhetoric on social networking sites and making frequent visits to online bomb-making centers.

If you’ve got nothing to hide, you get passed over. And when I say nothing to hide, I mean nothing having to do with terrorism or murder some other atrocious crime like child porn.

If you’ve got text messages about buying or selling weed, you get passed over. The federal government is not going to waste time and energy on people it doesn’t think are seriously dangerous to society.

If you’re Tamerlan Tsarnaev and you repeatedly praise terrorism on YouTube, however, you just might fit the criterion for investigation.

Aside from violating privacy (which you of course are so careful about by even having a Facebook account), the most seemingly-justified cause for outrage over Snowden’s documents comes from the fact that there isn’t a law that says that the government can go through our personal information and that if the government can look at phone records, who knows what kind of Orwellian stuff they’ll do next. They could be looking at you through your computer’s camera right now.

The shooter in GA probes mental inquiries are a MUST for ALL gun owners. No matter what political party (like that's an issue, we know who the nuts with guns are) and we were very lucky no more kids were killed by these gun nuts.

And speaking of children.... Again..... Crazy ppl killing children. And then denying it. They tried to jump out and say they didn't use chemical weapons. Sad bunch of idiots.

And poor lonely sunny is trying awfully hard for ppl to gontonthat board. Must not be too impressive ..... Sunny spends a lot of time here.
