Open political thread
I wanted to start a thread that is just open political talk that can take any direction without pissing off the person that started the thread.
Ill kick it off by saying that president Bush is the best president ever and the greatest world leader today. That should get some responses...

I just heard on the radio that Democrats want the govt to pay for converter boxes for people when we switch from analog to digital. Since when am I responsible for my neighbors t.v. viewing!!! Another example of why Im conservative leaning.

I knew you would slip an Israel reference in there.
I got another question for you. The deal that Clinton was trying to put together, why did the palestinians not take it?
Are the Palestinians native to the land where Israel now exists?
- "The fact is that today's Palestinians are immigrants from the surrounding nations! I grew up well knowing the history and origins of today's Palestinians as being from Yemen, Saudi Arabia, Morocco, Christians from Greece, Muslim Sherkas from Russia, Muslims from Bosnia, and the Jordanians next door. The civil and tribal wars between Yemmenites (from Yemen) and Kessites (from Banu Kais of Saudi Arabia) ... are well known among Palestinians.

Personally I think TV is mostly to blame for both the political liers (of any party affiliation) and the tools that believe them. TV has turned a nation of free thinkers into a collection of robots who are too lazy to think. Indeed, why bother to think when the idiot box can do it for you? Supposedly by the age of 10 or something the average american child will spend more hours watching tv than they will talking to their parents in their entire lifetimes. This is why I think the country is going to hell.
Also, the media is not liberal, it is not conservative, it is SELF SERVING! They don't care what they report so long as it is going to sit your ass down and watch! TV wants your money and nothing else. Is it any wonder the country isn't even a shadow of it's former glory?
TURN OFF YOUR TV

Hmm well the only thing I want to say about politics in general is that politicians is a short sighted bunch of self serving mofos that apeals to a large population of short sighted idiot voters.
Down with democracy!!!!

I would have to agree with shutting the damn tv off. I limit how much my kids can watch. I looked over while my daughter was watching noggin and two teens were making out on tv....Couldnt believe it.
I would have to disagree on the liberal vs conservative media. I have heard one huge drumbeat: 2000 deaths....Ive heard that 2000 times in the last 24 hours..tv, newspaper, radio, you name it.

with half the country as his cousines how can bush lose

I still disagree about liberal media. The liberals like to bash fox as a republican propaganda throwing machine (which it is) and the conservatives like to bash cnn and the like as liberal propaganda throwing machines (which they are). But fox, cnn etc are all scratching each others backs in secret. They don't report deaths because they are liberal, they report deaths because nobody cares about how many have not died. Good news doesn't get people watching in this country, and that means networks loose money. If bush shot a child in the head, and the same day saved a childs life, you can bet they would report the former b/c nobody cares about people saving lives, it doesn't bring in the money.
it all goes back to TV's motto "there is no news, like bad news."
You can sort of draw an anaolgy to eminem's style of music. He has said a million times he doesn't believe half of the crap in his songs, he sings it b/c it's controversial, which 1)gets him free publicity and 2)gets people to buy it. If eminem sang about saving the planet and being good to your fellow man he'd have never gotten a record contract. The same is true for the media. If they reported good news they'd go out of business. Which is sad b/c we are the only thing keeping them in business. So technically they are catering to the wishes of americans. Even if americans deny it. I mean, how many times have you seen someone saying they hate the liberal media b/c all they do is report on deaths in Iraq? The catch is that obviously they are still watching this media which they supposedly hate! This in turn gives the media they hate more money to put out more nonsense which they claim to hate but still are glued to see it happen!!! see what I'm saying?

You make some good points. I personally would like to hear about the good things that happen. You can only hear about some girl getting raped and murdered so many times before you turn the damn thing off. Sometimes I go weeks without watching.
10-26-2005, 01:39 PM #30
well I can send you my own news reports via PM if you want
10-26-2005, 01:40 PM #31Originally Posted by johan
They don't care about whose in the white house. They like war, they like suffering, they like death, they like it b/c the people are afraid of it and can't stand to not know what's going on. Even though they don't report the truth anyways. The conservatives and liberals are fighting each other each side claiming the media is against them when in reality the media is against them both. But the dems and repubs are too damned stupid to see that or act on it. Or maybe they just don't have the balls.

I hope it wont become that bad over hear thats for sure. European news are atleast decently unbiased so far.
10-26-2005, 01:49 PM #36Originally Posted by symatech
I would believe you without even seeing the article. I told my lady we should just move to some island in the bahmas and live in a hut. No tv or radio. Course we would probably be blown away by a hurricane...
