the first video has been translated for you..... just click the cc button on the bottom and you can read the english translation of what she is saying
the second man also quit al jazeera because of its policies and practices of media deception and bias....something he did not wish to be a part of because he thought journalism to be a thing where truth is rather than lies
sorry it is bleh to you when someone speaks the truth.... perhaps he should do a little dance for you to make it more entertaining?edit on 11-8-2013 by OpinionatedB because: (no reason given)
Al Jazeera's broad availability in the Arab world "operat[ing] with less constraint than almost any other Arab outlet, and remain[ing] the most popular channel in the region", has been perceived as playing a part in the Arab Spring, including the Tunisian and Egyptian revolutions. The New York Times stated in January 2011: "The protests rocking the Arab world this week have one thread uniting them: Al Jazeera, ... whose aggressive coverage has helped propel insurgent emotions from one capital to the next." The newspaper quoted Marc Lynch, a professor of Middle East Studies at George Washington University: "They did not cause these events, but it's almost impossible to imagine all this happening without Al Jazeera."

So the whole nation should suffer because the electorate in a few districts aren't aware enough to vote out some dinosaur who has sat in office for half his life and contributed nothing but adding to the greed and corruption? Sounds like a silly reason to be opposed to term limits. Term limits work out well in every other political office that they are applied, so please tell me a good reason why they shouldn't be implemented here.
Also elections are not term limits. You can vote someone out of office one election, but they can turn around and run for the same seat again the next election. That isn't a term limit.edit on 9-8-2013 by Krazysh0t because: (no reason given)
I didn't say I was opposed to term limits. I just stated the obvious that we already have them, they are called elections.
I'm against term limits.
