Interesting that it is owned by the conservative corporate elite.

You would think that the media might have raised a bigger stink about an illegal war, and a series of unconstitutional laws passed in the wake of the blatant murder of 3,000 Americans, while the Bush family friend who is accused is at large to this very day, and the emptying of our treasury and transfer of the nation's wealth to the greatest corporate contributors to US politics.

The "liberal media bias" is one of the greatest tricks ever played on the American public by the corporate elite.

It saddens me that so many people are stupid enough to buy it.

"The medium IS the message."

By the way, most people who were smart enough to see the crimes of the Bush Junta were also smart enough not to go about flinging random threats over the internet.

A threat to any President is serious - and I am sure there was just as much as concern if Bush had been threatened.

There are alot of violence-prone whack jobs on the internet and you have to wonder how much is just hot air and how much is more serious.

Well duh...this is just the beginning with all the threats. I'm sure even when he was campaigning he had threats.

I'm not racists, but looking at reality, there are still and will always be racists people, especially towards him. It doesn't even matter if you're joking around, they will take it seriously.

You're wide awake! Not sleeping like the rest of the sheeples. I'd say I don't know how people can be so blind, but if the election proved anything, it's that people were waking up from the nightmare of this evil administration. It's ok, they won't live long enough to spend all the money they stole!

Peanuts flying everywhere... You would think that the nut thrower was adverse to hearing common sense.

Any coincidence that elephants LOVE peanuts (well, nuts in general, too)?

Sorry to intriduce a new topic. Found this news and thought I should share it.

Obama's Half Brother Performs In China:
Ndesandjo has a thin mustache, shaved head and a gold stud in his left earlobe. He slightly resembles his half brother, and shares the same trim, athletic physique. He speaks Mandarin, is a vegetarian and practices Chinese calligraphy.

I mean this is what, the 6 creditable threat against Obama, and all of them have been ugly meth-head racist White men. Whites should start to admonish these clowns more.

The beginning of the end. Very large steps will be taken in the next 4 years. Those of us who think that treating everyone as an equal is the actual solution to most of our social problems will begin to see the light at the end of the tunnel. But that will only happen with the voluntary suppression of personal expressions of prejudice. But with the kind of people who are want to express themselves out loud, in public, of their hate of others who are different then themselves, there is only one deterrent.

Fear.

I sure be likin' Eric Holder right about now.

Wayyyyyyyyyyyy back, I warned everyone. I gave everyone a fair chance not to be stupid. I told everyone that everyone will come under scrutiny for anything said about Obama. I have tried unsuccessfully to get my point across. More eyes then you think are reading everything you write. This person in Mississippi, might not be a part of Topix. But things have been written before, over the past few months. Like the thread called how to....dealing with bombs. Things that go, "I would never hurt him, I'm just saying....." Once again, I will let you know that you are being watched and read. Pedaphile threads, everything you create. Of course we have freedom of speech, however, stupid equals stupid. Mr Mississippi will derfinately NOT be the last to be hauled away. Some moron will test the system to see if it works. "Man fires gun out window to see if it works." Okay, carry on. Big Brother is watching.

Obama is not close to this half brother. He was cold towards Obama when they first met. Obama is close to his half sisters Maya and another African sister. He is not close with the other siblings, especially this one.
