@Dead_mind Why? Can it be because we let in millions of refuges from american wars all over the world?

Utter bull$#!+. The United States takes in more LEGAL immigrants than the entire rest of the world COMBINED.

And no, your beer is not pisswater, it's pure piss. That's why you drink it warm, because that's how it comes from the "tap."

Nice handle, BTW, it truly fits you.

And none american wars? Even at the cost of our own culture?



You mean the wars you also partook in? Funny how they like to put their head in the sand about that.... "And none american wars?" Not even sure what that means.

May it be the overall superior healthcare, education and not having a 2 political system?


Don't know what country you live in but a place the supports royalty via a tax which is numerous in Europe shouldn't be giving political advise.

May it bee that our beer is not pisswater?


Like said Calrsberg, Tuborg... I'll go further Heineken, stella artois and Amstel to name a few shall I continue?

"She claimed that congressman Steve Stockman of Texas, "actually received advance notice that the Oklahoma City bombing was going to happen."

Never heard that. Just googled it:

The next show she issued an apology:

"On Monday, I said that Mr. Stockman's notice from the militia movement about the Oklahoma City bombing was advance notice. It wasn't in advance, it was right after the bombing. I apologize for the misstatement. It was an editing error and it was mine alone."

She made a mistake. She owned up to it. These people aren't perfect. I never said she was.

It doesn't get much more "Pants On Fire" than that and is just one of the dozens of false claims she's made.

"She is the snarkiest, distortionist, lying, smarmy, idiot that MSNBC has."

I get that she could come off as snarky and sarcastic, just like maher.

As far as idiot, whether or not you agree with her she is brilliant.

As far as lying, we disagree on what the facts are YES? So of course you think she is lying as I think hannity is lying. The difference is maddow backs up her statements with cited sources almost constantly.

"Per, Wikipedia."

Yes sir. Comcast bought 51% from GE in 2011. Then bought the rest in 2013. GE does NOT own NBC anymore, although they absolutely used to. As I said, and you argued with, comcast owns NBC.

ROFLMAO!

She is the snarkiest, distortionist, lying, smarmy, idiot that MSNBC has. She lies through her smiley white teeth and expects everyone to believe her. She has to have learned this tactic from Bill Clinton and Keith Olbermann.

HG: "It is headquartered in the GE Building in New York City's Rockefeller Center" and
"The network is currently part of the media company NBCUniversal, a subsidiary of Comcast, which formerly operated NBCUniversal in a joint venture with General Electric from 2011 to 2013"

Per, Wikipedia.

"the same Steve Jobs of Microsoft"

Oops, okay I messed that part up, Sorry.
But Bob Iger is still a big democrat campaign contributor. As was Steve Jobs when he was alive.

HolyGod, you haven't read a textbook recently. Knowledge and facts are, apparently, no longer required elements of modern textbooks.

By the way, I have to say, FAIR, Media Matters and Noam Chomsky were great sources for this documentary. Those are some unbiased, perfectly normal, reasonable people right there. No complete bat-poo insanity there, whatsoever!

"understanding the left-wing propaganda in their textbooks"

Speak it brother.

Books, education, knowledge, and facts all have a well known liberal bias.

I'll have to do a documentary called, "The Brainwashing of My Kids". At least I can accurately claim that my children are not fully capable of understanding the left-wing propaganda in their textbooks and espoused by their teachers and professors. This documentary, on the other hand, is just rude and disrespectful to a perfectly sane adult man who can think for himself. This woman should have been spanked more when she was a child. She comes off as a disrespectful brat.

Wow. I so agree. If someone on talk radio or TV has opinions you don't agree with, well, they need to be shut up, maybe even locked up. And it's amazing how her dad was so much more infinitely capable of being an informed voter before he "started reading the newspaper and listening to the radio" 'cause those devil information sources that you can use to try to figure out what's going on are simply going to turn you away from the path of absolute agreement with me.

@Holy

Couldn't tell you don't watch either but I've seen quite some crap on the MSN/MSNBC sites. SO now is Fox news part of Twenty-First Century Fox Inc? Cause that's a stock.

"So what your saying is it's also publicly traded."

No. what I am saying is it is actively owned, run, and managed by 1 person. None of the others are.

"I'm mean really have you ever read or watched some crap MSNBC spews out it just as bad as Fox."

I don't really watch either much. However I can tell you that when I watch rachel maddow after almost everything she says she puts up a stat, source, or graphic to back up her statement. I can't say that I've veer seen hannity do that. He just says something and moves on as if it is gospel.

Also I find maddow to be pleasant, positive, and engaging. Hannity seems angry and agressive.

Perhaps THAT is why I find FOX to be so distasteful.

Am I wrong about those two comparisons in your opinion?

@HolyGod

Meanwhile FOX NEWS is effectively owned and run by 1 billionaire who has over 50% of voting shares.


So what your saying is it's also publicly traded. Having stock doesn't mean the people running the company aren't biased and pandering for a party. I'm mean really have you ever read or watched some crap MSNBC spews out it just as bad as Fox.

"NBC is owned by GE, the company making billions of dollars on wind turbines."

NO. NO THEY ARE NOT. Comcast bought controlling interest in NBC in 2011, and totallly in 2013. Look things up before you argue. BTW, GE makes more from the oil industry than it does from wind turbines, just FYI.

"Steve Jobs owns the biggest chunk"

"Owns", you know he is dead right?

"the same Steve Jobs of Microsoft"

WHAT THE F.UCK? Is that a joke? Steve Jobs founded Apple, I don't know of any interest he had in microsoft. Are you talking about Steve Ballmer?

HG: NBC is owned by GE, the company making billions of dollars on wind turbines.

ABC is owned by Disney, which is ran by Bob Iger. Steve Jobs owns the biggest chunk, the same Steve Jobs of Microsoft that is politically collaborated with MSNBC. Both are big democrat campaign contributors.

CNN was founded by Ted Turner. Turner is a well known liberal and he stuffed CNN with like minded people decades ago.

CBS is owned by Sumner Redstone, another well known democrat campaign contributor.

"It's pretty funny they'll go after one media outlet for brainwashing and ignore that it's the Democrats that own the most media outlets......"

NBC is part of comcast, a publicly traded company. It is OWNED by the public.

ABC is part of disney, a publicly traded company. It is OWNED by the public.

CNN is part of time warner, a publicly traded company. It is OWNED by the public.

CBS is a publicly traded company. It is OWNED by the public.

Meanwhile FOX NEWS is effectively owned and run by 1 billionaire who has over 50% of voting shares.

Do you see the difference?

I don't agree with that assessment McGovern. I don't think they are all liberal. You find unique reporting on all of them at times and yes at times they parrot each other. I wouldn't lump them all together though and paste a large Ambiguous word to all of them like "liberal". They are all separate entities with different objectives (at least one would think). I could be wrong but I'm not into the whole conspiracy of the all the medias working together for some elite group to control the masses.
