    The corrupt media will not be able to get away with saturation news anymore. Where they take someone like Akin and do a hundred stories in a week.

    At the same time if a Democrat says something damaging they simply ignore it or do a one day story on it and people forget.

    Propaganda is very powerful tool!

    With a fair news network they could point out the blatant unfairness in this type of propaganda news.

    It will draw a huge audience. People that do not follow events closely will now hear both sides of the argument.

    Hit and run corrupt leftest journalism will be a thing of the past.

  • Sicilian Papa


    All lefties

    Ask yourself this, I you ever seen a story that went in depth about ghettos and the affects of the welfare state on these inner city communities. The fact that Dem. politicians have controlled the inner city for fifty years and things are worse now than then.

    They do stories on schools in the inner city. How they need more government money.

  • Mark

    @Sicilian Papa
    They want to win! To win they must cut off the head of the snake.

    Winning to people that rich would be getting a positive return on your investment. Now even though the guys they wanted and backed to win didn’t win, question still arises is did all the money they put in change the coarse of discussion that is favorable to them in the bigger picture.

  • Sicilian Papa

    No you haven’t because the corrupt propaganda machine that is the main stream media knows it would damage the democrats if people knew the truth.

  • Mark2

    @Tony “but as Apple Stinx stated if food stamps are so good for the economy why not print an unlimited amount!The point I’m making is that food stamps are ballooning to an unsustainable amount.”

    Well, believe it or not, many Liberals believe that the stimulus package was way too small. And that a bigger stimulus package would’ve helped the economy recover a lot faster. You have to understand that the average welfare recipient gets less than $140 a month. In my opinion, that’s not enough. Many Liberals believe that amount should be double that because again, it’s going right back into the economy almost instantly – the same way with unemployment benifits.

    Also, keep in mind that the increase in food stamps is temporary, and NOT permanent. Now what constitutes temporary, that’s a question you would have to ask economists who come up with these fiscal stimulus multipliers and whether or not it should be made permanent or temporary. By the end of 2016, food stamp recipients will be drastically lower than their current levels.

    By the way, what do you think cause so many people to apply for food stamps?

  • Sicilian Papa



    Not everything is about money. Rush Limbaugh has about a billion dollars but he wants to win. It is what kind of country you want to leave behind. For people with more money than they know what to do with it is about their personal beliefs for most but not all.

  • Sicilian Papa


    Mark 2

    I am all for it borrow and spend two trillion this time and see what it does.

  • Sicilian Papa


    Mark 2

    There will be more people on food stamps by 2016. You can bank on that!

  • Sicilian Papa

    Got to run you guys…so little time and so many conspiracy theories to come up with.

    See ya tomorrow!

  • Mark

    lol @ this I am listening to the Bill Cunningham Show(right wing radio guy) and he is pushing the lack of votes idea and how it seems funny. Do these guys actually believe what they are saying or are they trying tohood wink the public

    Simple logic says ALL VOTES HAVEN’T BEEN COUNTED YET!!! which is why the vote total is less at this current moment

  • Mark2

    @SP “There will be more people on food stamps by 2016. You can bank on that!”

    I seriously doubt that. Just like the end of the Clinton era, millions of people will be removed from food stamps. Because again, this is a temporary, and NOT permanent.

  • RedBarSoup

    I have even heard of an idea for a show that highlights media bias. They want to do it in 30 minutes. I think it would take three hours a day.

    You just described The Daily Show….

  • Jeff

    Good Morning Gang!! Hope you all had a great weekend.

    4 MORE YEARS! Yes!

    Should be an interesting week watching the defeated GOP play chess…..as they always do.

  • Coffee Steve

    Goooooooooood Morning

    Weather was so good we decided to stay the entire week. How is everyone?

    Did someone say there was an election of some kind? :-)

  • Coffee Steve

    I didn’t read or watch any news since last Wed Morning, I go away a few days and Petraeus resigns, Stock Market loses 3% and basiclly ploitics stays the same, go figure LOL

  • Coffee Steve

    Wow! my daughter is in the 7th grade, and she is doing this stuff already that I didn’t get to until the late 8th grade

    In mathematics, in the context of polynomials, the word monomial can have one of two different meanings:

    The first is a product of powers of variables, or formally any value obtained by finitely many multiplications of a variable. If only a single variable is considered, this means that any monomial is either 1 or a power of , with a positive integer. If several variables are considered say,then each can be given an exponent, so that any monomial is of the form with non-negative integers (taking note that any exponent 0 makes the corresponding factor equal to 1).

    Cool huh :-)

    BBL..bout 10:30 or 11’ish

  • Richard

    All left all the time attracts a loyal but limited audience at MSNBC while the fair and balanced approach at Fox News attracts a much wider and intelligent audience who are interested in both sides of the story.

  • Sam

    So General Petraeus was pimping huh ?

  • Letmethink

    Hello Coffee, Richard and Jeff
    Coffee–mathematic fact is interesting. I know I had that at one time but like everything one doesn’t use often, it is forgotten. So great that you and your daughter are working together to provide her a fine education.
    Also glad you got to spend some peaceful and fun family time at your cabin.
    It has finally turned cold here in TX–in the 40’s. When I went out this morning to let the chickens out and ck on the greenhouse I was sooooooooo cold. I can’t imagine the suffering of those on the east coast with no heat. We gave to a local church that is sending truckloads of blankets, water, canned food and gas cans to the east coast. We always prefer to give to a cause when we know that it will go directly to the people who need it and nothing will be skimmed off the top.

  • Ratboy

    Good Morning and welcome back Coffee! Make sure you check the list cuz you got a bunch of chores to do buddy!!!!

    Well we shall see what this week brings. The bengazi hearings, but nobody important will be there, the prez meets with leaed over the fiscal cliff but says he aint budging, presser on Wed so lets see what questions get asked but more importantly which ones get answered.

    Now do you think maybe a visit to New York would be something the prez should do sine there are STILL people without power and things are just down right UGLY???? Jus askin
