69. Well, I get your point about 'a more evolved population'!
Edited on Tue Mar-24-09 06:37 PM by sabrina 1
But a little more truth from people like Turley ought to take care of that. I don't think the population is dumb, but when TV 'News' is all they have access to, how could they know the extent of the crimes committed by the last administration?

However, you ARE right that just a few years ago, Turley and others like him, could not get a hearing on National TV and people who WERE telling the truth, like Donohue, a top-rated show at the time, were simply censored.

I guess that IS progress, but six years is a very long time to wait for even this small glimpse of the truth and I'm not as confident as you are that Obama is going to go after the previous administration. His statements about 'focusing on the future' rather than 'focusing on the past', when asked about investigating those crimes, doesn't inspire much confidence. But having said that, I hope I am wrong, and you are right.

You better put those stickers on your car, btw, we little people ARE subject to the law, unlike our elected officials ;-)
