What a one sided YouTube video.. how am I supposed to make judgement over a video that is interpreted by the author? I'm tired of these speculative videos written by those who oppose EVERYTHING.. it's ridiculous.

I served in Iraq and Afghanistan where I have SEEN insurgents and their cache's of weapons.. and 'Mr. Cool' with the toothpick in his mouth is obviously far right wing and chants with the 'blame America 1st' crowd.

Seriously?! This is what you are concerned about? Yea, fox is terrible, and stossel is a real boob. But in my opinion, only the weak minded will get so worked up over something so trivial. Dont waste your thoughts on this nonsense!

Fox is doing nothing different then the other networks CNN, MSNBC, NBC, CBS, ect with their cheerleading for obama and his minions.
There's no "truth" in the news any news any more, I mean, when I was younger, I had the impression that the Press was the peoples watchdog, keeping the public informed of what the government was doing and holding them accountable. That's not happening.

Oh i definitely agree with you there. I just happen to dislike their particular brand of propaganda more than the others

1: the law applied in occupied territory by the military authority of the occupying power

2: the law administered by military forces that is invoked by a government in an emergency when the civilian law enforcement agencies are unable to maintain public order and safety

[sarcasm]

Ya, I'm sure they would announce to hundreds

of millions of people simultaneously via the MSM

when Martial Law is implemented. Right!! Because

that would help them meet the goals of what Martial Law

is intended for. [/sarcasm]


edit on 26-2-2012 by ILikeStars because: Your reason for the edit (must be filled out): Why are you reading this? Should I really tell you what I edited? Ok then, I guess I will comply with this mandatory expectation, although I can't remember it being in the terms and conditions, but my memory may be a little shotty. I took out some

headline

brackets because I decided it would be too much like me yelling way to loud at people to state the obvious truth that America is currently under martial law, or some varient form of it whether their populace is aware of it or not. Psyops are good at what they do.

Those who rely on Fox news to "enlighten" and "inform" them on current events, have an IQ equivalent to that of a rock.

Their viewers are not the brightest, and it is so very obvious.

What a bunch of sheep in the audience. All they needed to hear to applaud the vet was that he was, in fact, a vet. I'm not knocking his message, but servicemen have been so glorified that, actually being one, it makes me sick sometimes how misguided people are about us. Do they not realise that the military is just a microcosm for society as a whole? Do they not realise that we have our own drug-dealers, rapists, murderers and thieves. I'm not trying to sound pessimistic, or make it sound like we're all scumbags, but people need to actually listen to what a vet has to say before applauding or booing them, as I have seen both without people even bothering to listen. It makes me kinda sick to my stomach, actually, how easily public opinion is guided by group-think. It's pretty alarming if you ask me. It looks to me like the public opinion will never be a balanced one, because, from birth, people are almost trained to look to their left and right to see what other people are doing before they, themselves, do anything or form an opinion. There are people like me still out there, but I think the figure sits at about 5% of the populace as a whole. 5% of the populace does not buy into the whole "Because we said so." excuse. It's wierd now, though, because it looks to me like a somewhat engineered non-conformity seems to be rising out of the confusion as well. It's almost like someone with some amount of pull wants there to be dissent in America and up here.

I read through your post and was going to bring down the hammer on a couple of points you made.

Then you spit out this little gem of a sentence.

Hence, no hammer. How about a [color=00FFFF]★ instead?

[color=00FFFF]I spent 11 years in the United States Air Force.

I spent a total of 44 months of my life in warzones during 7 deployments.

I'm going to say this as candid, frank, direct, forthcoming, forthright, foursquare, freehearted, free-spoken, honest, open, openhearted, out-front, outspoken, plain, plainspoken, straight, straightforward, unguarded, unreserved, and up-front way that I think I can:

What variables would have to exist to permit Fox "news" and other mainstream media outlets get away with this kind of behavior and make it the right thing to do?

The powers that be would not overtly televise to hundreds of millions of citizens simultaneously via the main stream media that martial law (or variations of it) has been implemented.

Use your eyes for yourself. What do you see?

What a one sided "news" organizations. How am I supposed to make judgement over their "news" when it is interpreted by the bags of crap that work at/with Fox "news"?

Who is Fox "news" target audience?

Americans national average IQ (92) is far closer to legally impaired (70) than it is to the genius range (140).

Now we know why Fox "news" panders their bombastic hokum at a fifth to eighth grade level.
Because this is the intelligence level of their targetted demographic. That's why.

Bring the hammer down on what. All points are just things that I have learned through life experience, not just some BS that I read on the internet. Please do clarify. Don't set the icing on the table, but not bake a cake. Let's have it. Also, I don't know what symbol you were trying to put into that message, but it just turned out looking like numbers in a square. Again, clarification is necessary. I thought specificity was supposed to be something you air force boys excelled in.

Friend, weird way to end a question. I don't agree they all were blindly applauding him for what he was going to say uniformally prior to him speaking. His intentions of confrontation with Michael Bolton were apparent from his body control language and tone, and his intentions may have been inferred to those trained to read such things. However, kindly aside from that, I think they were applauding him for his service in general. I'm not going to bring down the force of the hammer on assuming everyone who was clapping, applauding, & standing up were all doing it out
of the same reason(s). Perhaps people as individuals had their own personal purposes and/or motivations.
Xavier (Charles) once said: "Welcome to the Republic of Genosha. This is all it takes, really.
Nothing but two hands clasped in fellowship, pledging to build something better."
Eventually we may get there, but I'm not sure Fox "news" is part of the sollution or adding to the problems.
Whatever the end game of their blatent bombastic hokum is, I can almost assure you we may not always
see what is what or fully understand what their words may be saying to us.


I don't know what symbol you were trying to put into that message, but it just turned out looking like numbers in a square.


On my computer screen it looks like a blue star.



Again, clarification is necessary. I thought specificity was supposed to be something you air force boys excelled in.


uh huh, yep.

I dunno, man. They started clapping before the words even fully left his mouth. It seemed more like impulsiveness than anything, to me. I, by no means, intend to take credit away from where it is due. But where I come from, it takes more than a military record to impress people. The same goes for them naming the 401 (a highway up here) The Highway of Heroes, because that's the route that our boys go down to be repatriated. It seems like now all it takes to be a "hero" is to be stupid enough to sign your life away for a 10 grand signing bonus and then getting blown up while on the MSR between the AFB and their FOB or OP. When I was in, there was no credit being handed around. The Canadian public didn't want anything to do with the Army, or any of the other branches of the Canadian Forces, really. When they don't need us (as perceived), they don't want us. Now, some cherry moron can fall on his own bayonet and come back to a hero's welcome. As far as I'm concerned, you don't get any thank-you's or applause for doing your job. It's not like we do it for free, ya know. (Yeah I know it's not much, but it adds up. I don't know how they pay you puddle jumpers, but in the Army, at least up here, it's pretty meager when you take out of account the signing bonus)
