Yeah.
I don't find Republicans pretending to be balanced particularly appealing. That's what we see on Fox 24/7.

There are too many professional misinformationists on the TV and internet. I am growing weary of the bullshit.

As far as the NSA and DU3 goes you would be surprised to find a majority of posters have come down hard on the President. Now, this majority is growing less vocal by the day and some threads especially critical of the President have simply disappeared. But, I have been pleasantly surprised by the response. Of course the cheerleader brigade will never change.

1. I think Joe and Mika are more dangerous than Fox. People who think they are
getting objectivity from Fox are as silly as the people who think they are getting objectivity from MSNBC in the afternoon and evening; and both groups are beyond my ability or patience to reason with people.

But, the pretense on Morning Joe is a lot more insidious. In my opinion, anyway.

A majority? Really? I am beyond surprised. I am floored.

I am especially surprised because I read somewhere while lurking around on some board or other--don't recall where--that there had been a "purge" of liberals recently. No idea if that is truth or fantasy, but I did read it somewhere.

BTW, does anyone even say "floored" anymore? And what does it mean anyway?

This?

2. Oops. I just saw that, on seafan's thread, I bet my home that a majority on
DU3 were rationalizing the mass snoop.

I guess I lost my home, but I am not sure who I lost it to. No one seems to have taken the bet.

Oh, well, I'll just stay here as a squatter until the winner, if any, comes to collect.

3. I guess we are both "floored".
Maybe that means we ended up on the floor out of shock. Or something.

There is just no way to sweep this under the rug. The NSA thing isn't the least bit surprising to me considering the crazy appointments and decisions made by this administration. We appear to have a continuation of the Dubya Administration, mostly.

4. Ari Fleischer called it Bush's fourth term, but how would he know?
http://www.politico.com/story/2013/06/nsa-phone-records...

Obama called it "forward," as opposed to all the polticians who campagn on "backward."


And, once again, Back to the Future comes to mind as we go "forward" into the past.

However, since we do not want to prosecute Bushco, we must look only forward, while carrying out Bush's fourth term. Tricky manuever, that.
