Coulter speaks

" Guess why? Because moveon.org got a petition going saying FNC was a "Repulican mouthpiece and not a credible news organization".

--

Regardless of moveon's petition, it's well documented that FNC is a Republican mouthpiece.

As far as, "..not a credible news organization", well...... ;)

VIDEO COMPILATION: Fox News Devoted 12 Times More Coverage To Anna Nicole Than Walter Reed

Our national media embarrassment was again on full display on Friday. Both MSNBC and Fox News devoted more coverage to Anna Nicole Smith - three weeks after her death on Feb. 8 - than they did to the multiple developments involving the neglect and deplorable conditions at Walter Reed military hospital.

The most lop-sided coverage by far was aired by Fox News, which featured only 10 references to Walter Reed compared to 121 of Anna Nicole - roughly 12 times the coverage. MSNBC featured 84 references to Walter Reed and 96 to Anna Nicole.

References to Anna Nicole and Walter Reed on cable networks on March 2:

NETWORK ____ANNA NICOLE ___WALTER REED
FOX NEWS ________121 ___________10
MSNBC ____________96 ___________84
CNN ______________40 ___________53

Gingrich seeking real change

"Gingrich lamented the disappearance of what he called "the principle of seriousness."

====

What a laff riot, considering his shenanigans.

Try lamenting (and acknowledging) your own enormous contribution to that disappearance, Newt, and at least you'll be starting with some semblance of truth.

If Newt truly seeks real change ... he'll seek personal change.

Capitol Briefing

"Connie Morris charged taxpayers $2,339"


"In a brief written report, Morris said her three days of meetings in Washington were "extremely productive and encouraging."

===

For a KSBOE member, whose term would be up two weeks after this meeting, it was "extremely productive" for whom?

=====

"She said the $1,300 in mileage would have been comparable to flying and paying transportation costs in Washington."

===

You can roundtrip Wichita to D.C. for under $350.

SOSDD. She just can't help herself.

Church and state

Posted by KS on February 15, 2007 at 7:30 a.m.

"I don't believe I have ever seen the words, "separation of church and state" in the Constitution."

===

James Madison, known as the "Father of the Constitution" and the driving force behind the passing and ratification of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, saw it.

"Strongly guarded as is the separation between religion and Government in the Constitution of the United States, the danger of encroachment by Ecclesiastical Bodies may be illustrated by precedents already
furnished in their short history."

God's law

Posted by Rationalanimal :

" Cry me a river. Yo, when your people's bare backs have been whipped bloody, generations have been bartered like cattle, families torn apart, crosses burned on your lawn, family members hung by lynch mobs dressed in white robs and denied ANY constitutional rights (let alone being acknowledge as human), then we can talk about gay rights being some civil rights movement. "

-

So it would need to reach that level, just to be able to talk about it?

Those who don't suffer from "a complete lack of historical understanding", would say that mindset cedes a lot of momentum to Totalitarians, Fascists, and Nazis.

Maybe Gypsies should have been ashamed of themselves for complaining about their internment, loss of rights, and citizenship because afterall, it was still a notch or two better than the Jews.

" Public policy, and religion are absolutely relevant in a discussion of whether such a lifestyle benefits society as a whole. "

-

And history repeatedly screams out that in regards to oppression, once you've embraced that paradigm as a rationale for denying people equal rights, the sky is the limit .

It was a great tool to deny women full rights as citizens for generations, was used as a casus belli to exterminate Native Americans and crush their culture and religion, and in large part allowed the whole litany of abuses you listed ....

... to continue as a mainstay, as being an absolute necessity for the good of society.

" I'll bet that the BOZO isn't phased by Communist China's lead as the largest arms supplier on the planet!

Thanks.

Marion. "

I wonder if _ anybody _ is "phased", that Israel is the 2nd largest arms supplier(Russia being first) to China?

Analyst suspects U.S. of Cold War revival

"We must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist. We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted.

Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that liberty may prosper together."

Denying reality

Posted by right_thinker

" Hooters is a good example of your angle----try going in there to apply for a job looking like all ugly and flat-chested---they'd laugh you out the door. "

===

Maybe.

But it would probably be better for Hooters if their HR dept avoided an American Idol-like interview process ... litigiously speaking, of course. :)
