I also talked about college football today, I should really be ashamed.

Next time we will ask your permission before we start sharing our opinions on various subjects.

"Dear John,

LF and I would like to talk about how the aliens have invaded Greece.  Is that allowed?  Or is there something more pressing you would like us to discuss?"

Sheesh.

well I am serious as a heart attack about the media being soft on Obama. Do you agree or disagree with the media being soft on Obama?

Minus Wrightgate, and the insanity over on fox "news", yes. The media in this country has completely forgotten it's role of government watchdog. It serves whoever is in power at the time.

Coterie of the Obtuse?

I love it!

We should rename Monroetalks with that moniker.  It might ruin the hit count, but we would all finally have a true home.

Well my goodness, small minds are easliy distracted, aren't they?  I thought we were discussing the possibility of having a black president and what effect that would have on the (at present) majority non-liberal white inhabitants of this country. . .

The country these right-wingers keep saying they "want back" is a white one in which their exclusive entitlement to the exercise of power, locally and globally, goes unchallenged. The fact that that country isn't coming back is what makes their voices so shrill and their actions so extreme. Demographically, economically and geopolitically, white America is in decline. In the absence of any meaningful analysis of class, race or internationalism, white Americans are understandably disoriented. Never having considered the unearned privilege of being white and American, all they can see are things being taken away from them. Never having considered solidarity with blacks and Latinos, they see them not as potential allies but as perpetual enemies. Obama's election showed that these appeals to fear can be defeated; events since then indicate that they can still be destructive..............Again this is the clincher

So it's only "right wingers!" who notice that the America of our birth, the America of our ancestors, "isn't coming back?"  Pray tell, how does one put a push-pin on the political spectrum for wishing a return to "the good old days?"

It isn't?  Says whom?  By what authority?  And "shrill" is an awfully optimistic word for someone who stands a great chance of being on the wrong side of an accusation...

wtf???!!  What planet did you alight from?

"Solidarity," as happens with birds who stay together, begins with those who are of a feather.  "Diversity" doesn't count as either.

More succiently, why was the media so soft on Bush? Or Clinton? Or bush the first?

The media should exist to rip to shreds the government, not prop it up.

Mass media exists, just like you and me, to earn a living.

Over time, entertainment has become more profitable than detailed facts, so mass media naturally pursues what's most profitable: entertainment.

That fact speaks volumes.
