In order to shut up any and all dissent to the democrats left wing agenda. You cannot deny that every single prominent Republican/Conservative is under attack in some way by the media or democrats. Harry Reid used his powers to attack a private citizen, Rush Limbaugh, for something that was a complete fabrication created by the media.


Well one thing I think none of you are considering is that MSM people are in the same line of work as musicians and actors. Its performance based and designed to hold an audience...

That being said... Most actors tend to be Liberal. These people are actor, that is all!!!

And trust me as much as you Radical Conservatives ( I just thought I would throw it back ) hate this - CNN and MSNBC -- Well I can officially say that I HATE FOX twice as much. I would BDOS half of them.

NOW you can feel how it feels... Its not nice is it?

So what now???

Are we all going to point the finger, have a civil war???

And a side note I notice that a few of you folk say LIBERAL like the "N" word.
I recognize this,,, RUSH...

care to explain


Because the fairness doctrine would introduce the possibility of regulation on the subjective matter of political ideology.

Thee government gets to regulate free speech and regulating freedoms is what the left is all about.

GIVE ME A BREAK...

HAVE YOU EVER LOOKED UP THE WORD LIBERAL IN A DICTIONARY???

Liberalism is a broad array of related ideas and theories of government that consider individual liberty to be the most important political goal.[1] Modern liberalism has its roots in the Age of Enlightenment.


favorable to or in accord with concepts of maximum individual freedom possible, esp. as guaranteed by law and secured by governmental protection of civil liberties.

favoring or permitting freedom of action, esp. with respect to matters of personal belief or expression: a liberal policy toward dissident artists and writers.

of or pertaining to representational forms of government rather than aristocracies and monarchies.

All I have to say is???

Favoring traditional views and values; tending to oppose change.





Conservatism is a term used to describe political philosophies that favour tradition, where tradition refers to various religious, cultural, or nationally defined beliefs and customs. It is difficult to define the term precisely because different cultures have different established values and, in consequence, conservatives in different cultures have differing goals.

Samuel Francis defined authentic conservatism as “the survival and enhancement of a particular people and its institutionalized cultural expressions”

Roger Scruton defines conservatism as the “maintenance of the social ecology” and “the politics of delay, the purpose of which is to maintain in being, for as long as possible, the life and health of a social organism”

Russell Kirk considered conservatism "the negation of ideology"


Traditional or restrained in style: a conservative dark suit.

Moderate; cautious: a conservative estimate.

I hear this all the time and dismiss it. What traditions are you talking about exactly? I can think of a few traditions that liberals hang on to no matter what. Simply calling yourselfs "forward thinking and "progressive", doesn't mean you actually are.


And trust me as much as you Radical Conservatives ( I just thought I would throw it back ) hate this - CNN and MSNBC -- Well I can officially say that I HATE FOX twice as much. I would BDOS half of them.

You do realize that Fox was created IN RESPONSE to a media that was beholden to one point of view (liberal)? How in the world can the left/democrats have control of most print and TV media and still be the victim? We have "felt how it feels" for the last 3 decades! Nice try though...

well if you like obama its your loss too. your loss of income when he taxes you to hell and back and makes us officially a socialist country


You stated earlier that you were middle class. I assume this means you make less than $200,000 per year. If this is correct, you will be getting taxed less based on Obamas tax policy. His tax policy will give tax breaks to the bottom 95% of the population. You should really look into a candidates policy before you assume that you or the majority of the population will be taxed more. It is simply not true.

The only positive thing I can think of about a Nobama win is watching the media who loved him and praised him like he could walk on water start to tear him up the day he takes office. It would be entertaining, to say the least.

As far as McCain choosing Palin what it showed me is that McCain has heard the pleas of the Hillary supporters whereas Obama and the DNC turned a deaf ear and told us to shut up, get in line, and vote for him because we 'have nowhere else to go.' My answer Mr. Nobama, is yes indeed, I do have somewhere else to go and I will happily vote for that ticket. Myself and many other millions of disaffected, disenfranchised former Democrats. I wonder if your youth vote will make up for the loss of us -- the base of your party? We will see.

So, yeah.....as someone who is directly in the path of Gustav - I couldn't give a sh*t about Sarah Palin at the moment...

A hurricane that could destroy my home and everything around me is taking precedent over who McCain has picked as his running mate...

Really? O'Reilly himself said, "She has scant experience for a Vice Presidential pick."; so I certainly wouldn't say all Republicans/Conservatives are very happy with the pick.

On one hand, McCain's campaign has been attempting to reinforce his former "Maverick McCain" image, with a relatively unknown female pick, in order to draw in more independent voters. At the same time the campaign is attempting to solidify the conservative base with a pick that's even more conservative than McCain is. The problem is that they really can't have it both ways, and it is creating a divide amongst republican party members.

As to the notion of CNN's "blatant liberalism" in choosing to discuss a "stupid tropical storm"; that's quite ridiculous.

I suppose Bush is also a "blatant liberal" because he's chosen to cancel his RNC appearance in order to focus on the looming hurricane. Heck, the whole Republican party must be "blatant liberals" because they're considering canceling day two for this "stupid tropical storm".


I'm not saying that CNN doesn't lean left at times, but the OP's chosen "evidence", in this case, is downright absurd.

CNN liberal??? They certainly don't discuss any of the liberal issues of concern to a typical liberal. Oh wait, I think I see. You are thinking Obama is a liberal. As far as I can tell, he is little different in regards to policies than McCain. He dropped his support for universal health care, thinks the U.S. should start a war into Pakistan to get Bin Laden, thinks the military spending should increase. He has enough corporate support and military support for anyone to realize that a vote for him is a vote for the military-corporate empire.

If CNN were liberal they'd be promoting some liberal candidates like Ralph Nader or the Green Party or even Ron Paul.

People still watch cable news? it's ALL drek and if you think CNN is liberal or left wing then you have gotta watch a little more I guess.

It's not news at all, it's 'a show' with edits & music placed to direct the viewers thinking in a particular way.

Shut off the tube all together actually. It's all drek anymore.

Swatman....not sure if you were responding to me, or someone else's post....but, since I happen to be here, I'll field this.


I cannot speak for the man (Michael Moore) since I've never met him.

AND, unless any of you have actually met the man, then the hating is inappropriate.

AND, I for now on, apply this concept to myself!

You may NOT hate on a person, unless you have had direct personal contact with them first!!

This is very difficult to imagine, but just makes sense....AND, I must now bite my tongue everytime I see Bush step in it.....and that's my last comment, there!!
