No, if foxnews was unfair it would not have the most viewers, plain and simple.
Well if that is the case what is your theory as to why you have five people on your friends list and thirteen that have made you they're foe?
Look into the mirror and ask yourself why that is.

The only way to see if this post owrks, is if the threads start engaging positive discourse, or more of the same.
this whole flag thing is not helping. Cause honestly, its either a major bad on one of the sides. And who is going to admit their side is wrong, esp when its he said she said?
The flags were left over be the dems... FACT.
The dems had some sort of plan for the bundles of their flags... Their story
The repubs found the flags.... FACT
The repubs are using this as a political ploy against the dems.. FACT
The dems deserve it? NO says the dems, yes says the repubs...
A big fight that wont be solved. This wont help the board... Perhaps the mods can split the decision 08 board in two...
One fore debate with sources and facts.... And one for rumor that may or may not be true...? A skunk works for decision 08 per say.....
Deep down, after all the attacks, we know in our hearts, these are just two Americans putting themselves and their family out there in the public light to be trashed, because, as any great patriot, they want to make their country better.

When you allude to "raising the level of discourse", don't you really mean "changing the discourse more to your liking"
Way too many of these "oh, woe is me! the threads are not to my liking" threads lately.
But keep posting them, even though they accomplish nothing.
After all, discourse IS.
And far be it from me to rain on your personal parade.

Nothing is more irritating than people who think they need to "improve" the English language with ghetto slang and ebonics. It's lasted a long time on its own, it doesn't need your help.
I like how people confronted about bad spelling and grammar make it into a joke. It's becoming an epidemic in this country because of it.
