Stop watching TV or googling, and please pick up a REAL history text without bias, it is not a parti
even I bet George Bush is looking for authors to do so....perhaps he will get out his crayons and try it himself, after he masters "See spot run. See VP Cheney run with his Halliburton $$$$$$$."
How much time did you spend watching
the video and confirming every fact? I care about all this and read what I can, but that sounds borderline obsessive. JMHO of course.
On vacation and not watching the news, thanks. I don't spend all my time sm
watching politics so I guess I missed it.
It is not real the last time I heard.


THERE IS an investigation going on RIGHT NOW with the FBI and CIA.  Obama states he was born at one hospital in Hawaii while his sister states he was born at another hospital on the other side of Hawaii, yet no real evidence.  Obama then stated he moved to Kenya when he was 4 months old. 

You truly believe the LA Times? The newspaper who suppresses Obama and Khalidi tape?  There are so many uncertainities with Obama.  At least with McCain he is REAL and do not have to question about his motives and who he hangs around with.   

For the first time in history? Get real and -
I'm so sick of the whining about 'for the first time in history...' And what, exactly was holding African-Americans back before, huh? Can you not think of any excellent Black role models? Cause I can think of heaps of them. There have been, and are currently, many, MANY high-successful, Black public figures. From the mega-successful music moguls to television icons to the halls of Congress and the President's Cabinet.

Just because there hasn't been a Black president before doesn't mean they were EXCLUDED from the race. There hasn't been a WOMAN president either. Or a BLIND president. Or a KOREAN-AMERICAN president. Or an openly GAY president.

Does that mean none of these other groups have had success? None of them have had a role model?

Give me a break, America!
Yes, time to end the 2-party system, need more real choice in government, less partisanship!..NM
No, goofy. Republicans are REAL people, real

and for our country's future who participate here on this forum were just a tad as healthy, wealthy and wise as this poster considers herself, we probably wouldn't be sitting in front of these silly computers trying to make a living!! Can't figure why she is here other than tell us how healthy, wealthy and wise she is and we are not!
What's even more amusing is watching
your political ideology die a slow painful death.

I didn't post the original article not that you would believe me. As far as the rest of your rant I don't give a flip...and that's putting mildly.
like watching bullies get theirs
I kind of like to watch bullies get theirs and Delay's history for the past 21 years in DC is that of a bully..the *hammer* as his nickname is.  Kind of like karma..what goes around comes around eventually. Same thing with Rove, well known to spread lies and participating in extremely dirty politics..he just might get his now with the leak investigation.
If you think the government isn't watching you...think again.
Pay too much and you could raise the alarm

The Providence Journal

PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- Walter Soehnge is a retired Texas schoolteacher who traveled north with his wife, Deana, saw summer change to fall in Rhode Island and decided this was a place to stay for a while.

So the Soehnges live in Scituate now and Walter sometimes has breakfast at the Gentleman Farmer in Scituate Village, where he has passed the test and become a regular despite an accent that is definitely not local.

And it was there, at his usual table last week, that he told me that he was madder than a panther with kerosene on his tail.

He says things like that. Texas does leave its mark on a man.

What got him so upset might seem trivial to some people who have learned to accept small infringements on their freedom as just part of the way things are in this age of terror-fed paranoia. It's that everything changed after 9/11 thing.

But not Walter.

We're a product of the '60s, he said. We believe government should be way away from us in that regard.

He was referring to the recent decision by him and his wife to be responsible, to do the kind of thing that just about anyone would say makes good, solid financial sense.

They paid down some debt. The balance on their JCPenney Platinum MasterCard had gotten to an unhealthy level. So they sent in a large payment, a check for $6,522.

And an alarm went off. A red flag went up. The Soehnges' behavior was found questionable.

And all they did was pay down their debt. They didn't call a suspected terrorist on their cell phone. They didn't try to sneak a machine gun through customs.

They just paid a hefty chunk of their credit card balance. And they learned how frighteningly wide the net of suspicion has been cast.

After sending in the check, they checked online to see if their account had been duly credited. They learned that the check had arrived, but the amount available for credit on their account hadn't changed.

So Deana Soehnge called the credit-card company. Then Walter called.

When you mess with my money, I want to know why, he said.

They both learned the same astounding piece of information about the little things that can set the threat sensors to beeping and blinking.

They were told, as they moved up the managerial ladder at the call center, that the amount they had sent in was much larger than their normal monthly payment. And if the increase hits a certain percentage higher than that normal payment, Homeland Security has to be notified. And the money doesn't move until the threat alert is lifted.

Walter called television stations, the American Civil Liberties Union and me. And he went on the Internet to see what he could learn. He learned about changes in something called the Bank Privacy Act.

The more I'm on, the scarier it gets, he said. It's scary how easily someone in Homeland Security can get permission to spy.

Eventually, his and his wife's money was freed up. The Soehnges were apparently found not to be promoting global terrorism under the guise of paying a credit-card bill. They never did learn how a large credit card payment can pose a security threat.

But the experience has been a reminder that a small piece of privacy has been surrendered. Walter Soehnge, who says he holds solid, middle-of-the-road American beliefs, worries about rights being lost.

If it can happen to me, it can happen to others, he said.

I think you have been watching too may movies,
they don't have to kill anyone to get those.
Unlike you, I have been watching Fox along with CNN...
so I have seen the good things happening along with the bad. The surge is exactly what scaled down the violence in Baghdad. Anyone with half a brain knows that...unless you think it was miraculously coincidental that the surge and decline in violence happened at the same time. Now who is trying to oversimplify?

You totally disregarding the glaring point here. Knowing Murtha's history, knowing the outlandish and horrifying things he has said over and over about the soldiers and the war, that the words "surge is working" would even pass his lips should be indicative, because it must be a BIG difference between the time he was there before and this time or he would not have said anything. What on earth could he possibly have to gain by lying about it? The main has a military background; he should certainly be able to tell the difference. Yes, I find that encouraging, but I have been watching the news and where we used to hear about a roadside bombing every day we don't anymore. Where we used to hear about car bombs every day we don't anymore, even on CNN, because they can't report them if they aren't happening, even they are not that deviant. Things HAVE changed, whether you want to admit it or not.

The intent of my post was to show that there are some Democrats (even the most left ones as Murtha is) who are having to admit that it is working. To quote you again, anyone with half a brain would see that it is. And if you would watch Fox once in awhile, you would see the troops being interviewed, you would see Iraqis being interviewed, and you would see that there is light at the end of the tunnel. But, of course, you probably think you would go blind if you turned on that channel (or they are doing it with actors on a sound stage in Burbank...LOL).

Again, we agree to disagree. I prefer the optimistic view, you prefer the pessimistic. I believe what I saw this morning with people moving freely again, talking positively about the future again (Iraqis), thanking soldiers for help and protection and inviting them into their homes for meals...to me that is a very positive sign.

By the way, I read another article regarding Murtha and he is still for pulling the troops out immediately, even though the surge is working. But he also admitted that he had visited with the many Pennsylvania-based soldiers there (his constituents) and that they believed in their mission and that they felt the surge was working. Not that you believe a word he says or that I say. I prefer to believe them. They are over there. We are not.
Did anybody think they were watching an episode

was speaking?

Seriously they should make an episode from that.  It would be HILlarious

and you really think by watching the mainstream..
media, MSNC (Chris Matthews and Keith Olbermann), Air America and the like YOU are getting the whole picture? Admit it, you just want to hear what agrees with your point of view and nothing else. At least admit the bias.

I do watch CNN, I watch MSNBC until Matthews and Olbermann come on because all you get to hear with those two is what THEY think and they don't even attempt to hide their bias. Laughable really. At least Fox does have a Dem and a Repub at the same time, which is more than I can say for most of the others. And I don't watch Fox exclusively and have heard Limbaugh maybe once or twice, because he is almost as obnoxious as Olbermann sometimes. Can't stand that ego thing on EITHER side. Trouble is...I can see that. Those folks with a Fox and Limbaugh fixation can't see the same problems on the Dem side...namely Matthews and Olbermann. Wonder why that is??
It should be about the people. Watching
the different speakers last night, I was really proud of Barney Smith. Barney said he wanted a candidate that would put "Barney Smith first, not Smith Barney." He brought down the house. It's time for the American people to get the consideration we deserve from our government. The Bush administration owes us an apology. I absolutely refuse to have more of the same. It is time for a President who cares about the people.
come on..have you been watching the news?
to vote for Obama just because Hillary won. This is just one more reason for them to vote for her. Ignorant voters in large numbers are dangerous, just look at what the last 8 years has gotten us...
I have been watching closely, too.
The whole MSNBC crew was out of sorts on the night Barack gave his speech. It was like they were star struck. The night before I couldn't help but notice the MSNBC camera man all over the place, zooming in on the oddest thing; it was so bad, I switched to CNN and Wolfe. Read later that a rumor about drugs was going around. Maybe someone drugged their drinks. I have watched these guys for years and this is the strangest I have seen them. They looked unfrazzled and were disagreeable with each other. With regard to Maher, I like noncomformists -he is a smart guy and so far, what he has been alluding to has all come true with regard to GOP, as Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert.
If you are watching the coverage you know much is being done...
okay, you don't believe in prayer. Couldn't you at least say you hope they will be okay? There is only so much men can do...we are talking a huge storm on a town below sea level.

What a nasty attitude.
Good, I think we should all be watching. It is in ,,sm
our best interest to do so. I am in constant contact with my senators and respresentives and express how I feel. We all need to be proactive.
Must have been watching a different interview than the...

Watching the Maverick's

campaign fall down around his knees this week has been amusing.  His VP selection has been judged as a political choice only by 79% of the nation. Her poll numbers have dropped 10 points.  He thinks Spain is in this hemisphere.  He was against the bailout of AIG and then 24 hours later for it.  He now claims, after 24 years, that he is FOR regulation after innumerable remarks about being against it.  The great joy that his supporters professed at Lady deRothchild's defection was erased when she made that redneck remark. It's over.  He just looks like a desperate fool now.


I'm watching a few minutes behind
They really are blasting Mccain aren't they?

It sounds like he (Reid) is trying to be the hero...

Were you watching the debate?
He said he would strike inside Pakistan with or without the permission of the Pakistani government if he had "good intelligence" that there were "high value targets." By the time he has 6 meetings with his 300 foreign policy advisors any high value targets would be long gone...and he would end up with a surgical strike on an aspirin factory ala Bill Clinton. All I can say is if he gets elected, he better put Biden on speed dial or give him the next room in the white house for that 3:00 call. Or the 300 foreign policy advisors. I guess they could have cots in the Red Room...?

Because there was some great material tonight in Palin's performance! 

Not to say she bombed, because she didn't.  She did a great job of winking, smirking, smiling, and looking sharp! 

She did NOT do a great job convincing me or "thinking" Americans that a continuation of BUSH'S failed policies is the direction this country should take via MCBUSH.  Sorry not buying - no matter how cutesy she is... 

I *would* like to know where she got that suit though!  She'd be a HIT on sex in the City - she could give Carrie a run for her money LOL.  But be a heartbeat away from the presidency?  Not on your life!


You won't ever find out by watching
know what planet they came from!
Besides Bush, he's the next man that everyone is watching
Whether he was invited or not was not the point. The point was he deliberately made sure he was seen in public to let people know he wasn't listening to the president's farewell speech. This was no surprise b'day dinner they claimed it was. This was plain and simple rude! They could have stayed in their suite and made love for all I care while the speech is going on, but for crying out loud to be out in public to make sure everyone sees him - he has no class whatsoever!!!
I'm watching C-SPAN.(nm)
I'm watching it live.
I'm so disappointed in him. Someone asked when he was bringing jobs back from offshore. He said he's not. He's just trying to push his agenda, pretty much the same speech he gave the other night. What a waste of time.
You and I must be watching different stations
I think possibly Fox might have Obama's ratings dropping but just heard yesterday both independents and Democrats totally behind him with ratings up in the 80s. I did not even hear about the tea party until that very day so actually was not that huge from what I saw or read. As far as Alaska, she gets props for having a balanced budget. When you've got one of the lowest populations (4th least populated state) and a metric crap-ton of oil running through your state via the pipeline, Marion Berry, Kwame Kilpatrick, Bill Ford and George W. Bush could balance the budget--. Each Alaskan resident gets an annual check from the pipeline revenues. How can you NOT have a balanced budget?!?!?! Want to impress me? Balance California or Michigan's budget. The rainbow in Alaska is not as bright as several years ago. Read the Alaska newspapers. People there donít even like her. You will not have your wish of a change of parties next election- the repubs are in a shamble and everyone knows that.

Last night I was watching

....are you ready....Fox News....OMG. 

Anyway, they were talking about the vicious and personal attacks on Miss CA.  One guy said that she used to be a man and had to have breast implants and cut her penis off to be in the pageant.  Just crude and horrible things.  So they brought on this feminist to see what she thought about the cruelty and the vicious personal attacks on Miss CA.  This feminists who is supposed to be for women's rights said that Miss CA should have opted for a heart transplant instead of breast implants. 

OMG....a feminist cutting down a woman because she was outspoken and voiced her honest opinion.  I'm so sick and tired of hearing how people who don't agree with same sex marriage are heartless people full of hate.  I don't hate gay people.  Just because I don't agree with something doesn't give others the right to cut me down for it.  I don't cut down gay couples even though I don't agree with it. 

I just don't understand why all these so-called liberal open minded groups are so open minded unless someone has a difference of opinion.  You cannot call them names or cut them down but if you disagree with them, you are fair game and they will cut you down brutally anywhere and in any way they can.  Talk about a double standard here.

Any feminist should be outraged by the treatment of Miss CA.  So she believes in traditional marriage....so what.  That doesn't make her a bad person and I don't see her going around cutting down other people who disagree with her but she has had one vicious attack after another and it is just a shame. 

I don't much care about pageants and all that jazz and I was really tired of hearing about how she lost because of her answer but these attacks on her are just insane.  If these leftist groups are all about compassion......where is it?

They keep talking about equality for all but yet you can't have an opinion that is different.  How is that equality when you bash people who don't agree with you?  Aren't we all entitled to our opinions without viciously and personally attacking those who don't agree with us?

Oh, then those people watching
Olbermann must be sickos and those watching Maddow must be all lesbians, right?

On second thought, that's probably correct... Maddow spews more hate than anyone I know, next to Olbermann of course!!!
Me watching Fox is not big news...(sm)

I've stated all along that I occasionally watch Fox.  I also watch MSNBC, CNN, BBC, Democracy Now, etc.....basically anything and everything I can get.  Contrary to popular beliefs on this board, I like to hear all sides and then form an opinion.

And yes, I would say that the majority of money for Acorn comes from govt grants.  However, other organizations have the same opportunities as they do to get those grants.  They also take donations.  I think what has happened is that pubs typically count on large donations from businesses, etc.  I think they underestimate the power of getting smaller donations, but from regular people like me.  This is what happened with Obama's campaign.  While he had some heavy weights with large donations, he also had tons of people like me who would donate on a regular basis.  I think the same thing is happening with Acorn.  I think the whole thing is that pubs have underestimated their ability to raise money.  I kind of understand this because for years pubs have been much better at this than dems.....we just went about it a different way.

This is not to say that everything is on the up and up.  Again, I don't think I'm qualified to decide that without all the facts.

I highly recommend watching

Hardball on MSNBC tonight if you can.  (It's on at 7:00 and 11:00 p.m. here on the east coast.)

In the last 10-15 minutes of the show, a woman by the name of Cindy Sheehan speaks about her son, who was killed in Iraq.  She founded "Gold Star Families for Peace."  I was in tears after hearing her speak about all of Bush's lies and have even less respect for this so-called president than I had before.  I hope you can see her interview.  It is very moving.

I did a little research and found this link to an interview with her:


In my opinion, she's very, VERY a credible, compelling person.



I'm going to have to start watching his show...nm

It gets a bit tiresome watching them gang up on you...
...I think you're great. You're one of the reasons I started to come to this board more often.

You're a breath of fresh air in here....

Moderator is watching but you are incorrect.
The OP is not advocating but entertaining a valid thought about a past medical condition.

Yeah - that would be worth watching.

This is what you want? It's like watching a horror movie

This is enough the scare the you know what out of me.  If Obama wins you can expect more rallies like this.  BTW - Farrakhan calls Obama the messiah.  Warning - very creepy (almost like someting I'd see in a horror movie)



Keep watching your CNN -The Clinton News
Thanks for the head's up. Look forward to watching
bury this one in the trash right where it belongs...under the rotting fish.
Same here. Watching these people in interviews is
I take no joy whatsoever in watching W's mouthpiece
make a mockery of human decency and insult the intelligence of the American public. However, I do find your weak effort to dodge these issues by focusing on the future versus the acting SOS fairly comical and pretty transparent.

Israel violated the Gaza cease fire on November 4, 2008, US election day, when it sent a raid into the Gaza Strip, killing 6 Hamas, a small detail omitted from US mainstream media reports and admininstration press releases. One has to wonder what lit that fire, after a near-5-month lull in the hostilities. This incident initiated the deterioration of the truce that led to this most recent round of Israeli attacks on Gaza.

This morning Condeleeza Rice said that Bush and Olmert were "on the same page" and reiterated that phrase of "lasting and durable" cease fire which was repeated numerous times by W's spokesperson a few days back in a brief press conference. In the same breath, we are hearing about how Bush supports the the continuation of the attacks unabated and that a ceasefire must "not allow a re-establishment of status quo ante" for continued rocket launches by Hamas out of Gaza. This begs the question, what are the objectives of these air strikes and threatened ground invasion?

Here is what seems to be a fairly even-handed and interesting analysis.

Basically, what we have here is an attempt to overturn the results of a legitimate election, Israeli party politics, restoring the tarnished reputation of the IDF butcher brigades after Lebanon and trying to keep a puppet president who has stated his desire to step down in office long enough to figure out how to further manipulate Palestinian political parties into submission via the divide-and-conquer route.

I guess some might think those are really good reasons to sacrifice a few Israeli soldiers, even a civilian or two along the way, and hundreds of their Palestinian counterparts in a 100:1 Palestinian/Israeli fatality ratio (bound to increase 10-fold with a ground invasion) in the name of democracy and Israel's national security.

Dude, where's my diplomacy?
Watching press release
Could our president be double-standard? Reporters are asking really good tough questions. No confidence in this new administration whatsoever.
So far in watching the news today
there is one person who wants this stimulus to pass. I agree.

So, look out for a depression coming soon or is it almost here. I think there are pockets in our Nation already in a depression. I do not see it getting better, just being realistic, but still hoping that government know what the he** they are doing. I wonder what it would be like for some of our representatives were "layed-off" for awhile with no pay and no health care benefits like some of the other 4.8 million who gave money to the bailout that was supposed to be used to buy up bad assets, but instead gave the money to banks who used it for vacations and bonus packages. Uncle Sam seems like a mean, backstabbing, evil dude.
Isnt he terrible? I tried watching too and he comes
Well I'm watching news - you must be dreaming
But if you wake up and watch the news you'll see. No independents and democrats are not behind him, unless of course they are pushing for socialism/communism in this country. Lots of democrats do not say anything, however, as their jobs are in jeapardy. If you did not even hear of the tea parties until that very day then that goes to show you only watch MSNBC and CNN - my goodness girl, you really should switch the station, it was alll over the place for the past couple weeks. Even on this board they were talking bout the tea parties before April 15th.

If you are watching MSNBC and CNN I don't understand how you think you are getting any truth. They are just a bunch of hate-mongering people (not even reporters) who are bitter and hate the other stations because more people are turning them (MSNBC & CNN) off. They don't give any fair coverage. Only their side of it while spreading hate and fear.

Please for your own sanity turn those stations off and watch something else...anything else.
Wow....you're watching too many movies hon!
Never said anything about indoctrinated and embedded. I said he is a Muslim, raised by Muslims in a Muslim country, taught Islam as his religion until he was grown, and the list goes on and on. He knows Muslim teaching is not open to Christians or Jews AT ALL; matter of fact, they teach hatred of Christians and Jews. If he were a Christian, he would not pass up the opportunity to honor our day of prayer, but the fact that he will "hide" in the white house as if it's not important, especially in this economy, is just a sure fire way of kissing up to his Muslim brothers.... he doesn't want to insult them..... Heaven forbid!!!

What will you be watching instead of ObamABC tonight?
Let's all give ABC the lowest rating they've ever had, which will still be more than the scumbags deserve.
