On CNN they described a Local Soldier killed I Iraq as "Died Protecting
Edited on Sun Nov-14-04 02:02 PM by sam sarrha
America", This has ruined my whole WEEK ..I am sooo PISSED OFF, I haven't been able to meditate.. i started a fight with the wife this morning.. actually she asked me if i opened the 'Doggie door', i said, "I took out the plate"... she said,"Why cant you ever answer a question YES or NO..?? I replied that i told her it was opened.. if you don't like how i said it, give me a Fuck'n Script... i usually just let the crap go...

The war is getting so Propagandized, and the Media is cooperating and supporting the Emporer Moron.. i am really frightened.. I am scared shitless.

Every Day *ush is getting more Paranoid and scheming.

He wants to appoint a guy to the second highest Court in the United States who has openly stated in essays that he feels ALL... repeat ALL "regulations" concering 'Busisness' and 'Zoning' is UNCONSTITUTIONAL..!!!

they called it the Nuclear option... he is appointed period, and the Democrats are not going to stop it. I didnt catch it all but the flow was going toward eleminating the Filibuster.

right after the election *ush said that the Democrats have to realize that they are a "Failed minority" and they will have to just fall in line with his administration.

anybody out there losing a lot of sleep over the Stalinizing of the United States.

2. Yeah, they did a piece on Pat Tillman
Don't ask me why I was flipping the channels and happened to see it. Anyway, the caption at the bottom said something about him dying in combat. Please correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't he did from friendly fire? I just don't get it anymore, where has our free press gone?

5. No offense
but I am sick and tired of people bitching about cnn or fox or msnbc

don't watch their crap

BOYCOTT THEM

If they lose viewers, and their sponsers know, that is where it hurts

There are plenty of other places to get news:

1. bbc
2. bloomberg ticker
3. DU
4. FSTV
5. Daily Show

If you want opinions watch CSPAN, they don't have a agenda, and you will get both sides of the issue

6. Better Yet -- Email them!
I take great pleasure in emailing the idiots on cable news shows and letting them know that not all Americans are stupid and gullible.

I too get furious everytime I hear them saying that soldiers in Iraq are dying for Americans freedom! Let the CNN talking heads know that we are on to B's lies, and we know he invaded Iraq for oil and to revenge his daddy!!

7. Don't bother e-mailing; the fix is in place...
The CIA and the military have been involved with CNN for several years:

The takeover is almost complete, once they get those liberal CIA agents out and the god-fearing fundies in.

8. No offense back, but this is where America is getting its news
You are preaching to the choir here, obviously the poster sees the media's Bushkissing promotion of the war. Believe me, I watch the Daily Show but my colleagues at work don't. When they discuss events, it is through the MSM's eyes.

10. I think ultimately Iraq is going to provide the unavoidable reality check
which finally wakes people up and forces us to look at this disasterous administration realistically. Just be patient.

This WILL end. It will end because they are wrong and not a little bit nuts. Reality can only be avoided for so long.

Of course, it's already too late for the kid just killed in Iraq "protecting his country."
