<quoted text>You mean like how McCain is blocking access to his POW records single handedly?
I don't know. I know of no one who's blocking access to a legitimate copy of the BC. And besides, it's you who's making the claim that it's false. So the the burden of proof truly falls on you. Even O'Reilly has given in. But obviously you lean too far to the right to see that as the truth.
Try again. As I said, I suggest you get Orly Tait to assist you since you want to drive the legal roadways.
Isn't it funny how Yeah hates Fox and anyone that watches it, until he can use it to his advantage.

Yeah has never said anything that would lead a normal, rational, clear-thinking person to presume Yeah "hates" Fox "and anyone that watches it".

Therefore, I can easily see how you came to that conclusion.
Yeah

<quoted text>Goldman. Is that the same Goldman Sachs which contributed $1 million to Obama's presidential campaign?(Which was just slightly less than the TOTAL McCain received from Goldman, Merrill Lynch, Citigroup, Morgan Stanley, and JP Morgan COMBINED.)
Are you talking about those Wall Street crooks, who together contributed $14 million to Obama's campaign - nearly TWICE what they contributed to McCain?
Oh, those guys!
Really? I thought it was the other way around.
Yeah

lol. I don't hate FoxNews. In fact, there are times their news is comparable to MSM. But it's funny when you use people like O'Reilly as "news" because he isn't. Just like Limbaugh.

What's funnier is this ebb and flow of what constitutes "msm." You all talk about it and despise it. Yet, no one will actually pin it down as to what it is or the definition. It's a "I'll know it when I see it" type of responses. Nebulous and lacking.

There you go again, with one of your pontification speeches. You and Yeah use them to bully and to try to discredit others.

Todays MSM is nothing more than a glorified tabloid rag, be it by the airwaves or paper.
Gone are the days when we could actually sit down and watch or read news that had been investigated and reported, not just people that wanted a platform to give the rest of the world their opinion, or to try and sway people to their beliefs. Today's public is much more intelligent than that and we deserve better than what they have to give.
They are all losers.
Point, you can watch 6 channels and get a total of 6 views on the very same story and none of them may be the truth. I don't want to know which way someone leans, I can make up my own mind without their guidance. Then you have the ones that will lie about something and the others that will swear to it. We all lose.

In that case, why don't you prove why "...Yeah hates Fox and anyone that watches it, until he can use it to his advantage."

Discredit can only come when the other makes a claim of fact that's not true. All we're saying is without the meat behind your words, it's simply an opinion. Because that's how you like to confuse people.
Yeah

I think if you want to add a 'judge it', they should put a little picture of your face next to it. I'll bet you a peanut, lemon and a can of spam that we would see that the guy that gives these Republicans all those good ratings is actually Alfred E. Newman.

When you make a generalization like you did about Yeah and Fox, it needs to be discredited.

What, me worry?

Were you a MAD reader, Fisherman? If so, who was your favorite: Mort Drucker, Dave Berg, Don Martin, Sergio Aragones, or someone else?

You make a claim that things are coming clearer, yet you run and hide when asked for specifics. I guess simple talking is about the extent of your explanations?

I figured you could relate to that.
Didn't they show Alfred's face as if it was responsible for mischief sometimes?
My good friend from when we were 4 (he is a staunch Republican now- we don't talk about politics)had stacks of MAD magazines next to stacks of his dads Playboys. Sometimes I would spend some time reading down in their basement.(He told me his wife threw out the Playboys! Maybe the MAD's too- from the 50's and early 60's!)
I don't remember the contributors names, but 'Don Martin' rings a bell.

Don Martin had the strangest art style -- and really cool sound effects. The feet of his characters were always floppy.

He was one of my favorites -- but I also liked Spy vs Spy by Antonio Prohias.

Aragones was a genius (and still is, apparently) with the "marginal thinking" cartoons.

Over-regulation kills prosperity. Companies that spin out of control are destroyed by market competition unless the Feds put their heavy thumb on the scale. Bear Sterns, Goldman Sachs, AIG, GM, Chrysler and all the other "too big to fail"s would have gone Chapter 11 or disappeared but for the waste of tax payer dollars bailing them out.
<quoted text>
And if you were ever decide to WORK for a living, whom would you go to see about a job? A homeless **** or someone with a successful growing business. Again you define yourself as one of life's losers in your bid for sympathy based on class envy.
Bush destroyed market competition. Perhaps you can show me where he "encouraged" competition. Seems only the "big boys" were spinning out of control... regulation wise that is.

Administration Plans to Strengthen Antitrust Rules
By STEPHEN LABATON
Published: May 11, 2009

WASHINGTON ó President Obamaís top antitrust official this week plans to restore an aggressive enforcement policy against corporations that use their market dominance to elbow out competitors or to keep them from gaining market share.

Susan Etheridge for The New York Times

Christine Varney, left, of the Justice Departmentís antitrust division.

The new enforcement policy would reverse the Bush administrationís approach, which strongly favored defendants against antitrust claims. It would restore a policy that led to the landmark antitrust lawsuits against Microsoft and Intel in the 1990s.

The head of the Justice Departmentís antitrust division, Christine A. Varney, is to announce the policy reversal in a speech she will give on Monday before the Center for American Progress, a liberal policy research organization. She will deliver the same speech on Tuesday to the United States Chamber of Commerce.

The speeches were described by people who have consulted with her about the policy shift. The administration is hoping to encourage smaller companies in an array of industries to bring their complaints to the Justice Department about potentially improper business practices by their larger rivals. Some of the biggest antitrust cases were initiated by complaints taken to the Justice Department.

Ms. Varney is expected to say that the administration rejects the impulse to go easy on antitrust enforcement during weak economic times.

She will assert instead that severe recessions can provide dangerous incentives for large and dominating companies to engage in predatory behavior that harms consumers and weakens competition. The announcement is aimed at making sure that no court or party to a lawsuit can cite the Bush administration policy as the governmentís official view in any pending cases....
