A survey just out says that 49% of voters believe the bad economy is Bush's Fault! With dopes like that voting it's no wonder who we get for leaders.
Liberals blame Republicans for systemic problems caused by liberalism, and they credit Obama for victories brought about by applied conservatism.
I think you're only recognizing half the problem. Democrats take credit for good stuff that they shouldn't and so do Republicans. Democrats blame Republicans for stuff they shouldn't and likewise for Republicans.

I think there needs to be much more emphasis on ethics in journalism training.
Again this applies to all members of the media, Fox journos included.

Now Winston. Did I say "journalists" or did I say "journalists except Fox journalists"?

Are you going to start fibbing again?

I don't want a biased conservative journalist any more than I want a biased liberal journalist.

Hey you guys. In case you haven't heard, Svengoolie suffered a heart attack last Saturday night. On behalf of my many Homosexual friends, the lesbians, "and others", I wish him a quick recovery.

Svengoolie had scheduled a showing of the original "Dracula" movie tonight. Let us hope the film is aired in his absence, and that he can enjoy watching it from the comfort of his hospital bed.

The timing of Petraeus's resignation is very curious.
Do you and others realize that he has now PUBLICLY ADMITTED to a CRIMINAL OFFENSE ?

I want to point out something probably ALL of you forgot or didn't know about. Whether you like it or not, ADULTERY is a CRIMINAL OFFENSE in the military. It is specifically criminalized in the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ) which CONGRESS WROTE. Now you may think that is stupid or silly, but that is a FACT. Furthermore, even in the RECENT past, military personnel HAVE BEEN PROSECUTED, TRIED, CONVICTED, AND SENTENCED for the CRIME of ADULTERY.

Remember that to be in the military, you MUST volunteer, and in so doing you SWEAR AN OATH to abide by ALL the laws, rules, and regulations in the UCMJ. You do NOT get to pick and choose which ones you don't lke and will not follow.

The general has PUBLICLY ADMITTED to committing a CRIME. If an officer or enlisted person admitted to the same crime, do you think the military justice system would look the other way ? You KNOW they wouldn't. How can we expect military personnel, who VOLUNTEER for military service, and SWEAR AN OATH, to obey the UCMJ in it's entirety without exception, if one of the highest generals doesn't follow it, and in so doing,commits a CRIME ? He is an ADMITTED CRIMINAL, whether you like it or not.

Now, for those of you think that adultery should NOT be a crime, then I recommend that you write your represntatives and senators, and ask them to decriminalize adultery in the military.

And is ther even teh SLIGHTEST POSSIBILTY that he could have been blackmailed if this had become know to others so inclinced to take advantage of that knowledge ?

If a person walks into a bank and robs it, should he be prosecuted ?

If the president of the bank embezzles money from the bank, should he be prosecuted ?

I also wish a speedy recovery for Svengoolie on behalf of all his fans straight, homosexual, the lesbians and yes, even the dog lovers.

I grew up in NY where Zacharley, who had a similar show is very popular. Zacharley was born in 1918 and is still alive and active!

Best wishes to you and your honey.

I love watching Svengoolie. Zacharley seems to be the type of host I would enjoy watching too. In all the years Johnnie Carson was on TV, I never watched a single one of his shows, nor any of those of his competitors.

I conveyed your good wishes to my honey. He said to tell you "Bow Wow".

You may "know that stuff." But your posts seemed to indicate you only held the liberal media and Democrats accountable.

Yes, I have suffered through Fox News programs. They're no more fair and balanced than the other ones. At least The Daily Show and The Colbert Report are entertaining. John Stewart doesn't seem to be allergic to taking anyone to task.

Nope, I never said that. You're confused. I try to watch a mix of things. But Fox (yes the others too) can't seem to keep from throwing their caustic spin into the mix.

It's 3 years old so you'll probably disqualify it on that alone! I'll try and i=find something more current. Or not. Lazy Sunday.
