    He is not blameless but as usual my peeve is the hypocrisy.

    the Hypocrisy goes both ways sir, just look at my examples.

  • Bobbyv

    RedBar

    The hypocrisy does go both ways but right now the President is a Democrat. Like it or not the media does affect a lot of the tone. You know what you are getting with Fox and Msnbc but in my opinion Fox has the higher road because they are being critical of the President when others are not. Are they doing this out of the goodness of their heart? No, but isn’t that the job of the press, to be critical of those in power?

    Don’t you find it funny how we don’t hear any stories about torture now, even though the drone attacks are going on? This is just one example of an issue being used for political purposes, and it does go both ways.

  • RedBarSoup

    hear any stories about torture now, even though the drone attacks are going on?

    Drone attacks on terrorists is now the same as water boarding terrorists that are in our custody?? WTF!?

  • RedBarSoup
  • Bobbyv

    So blowing people up with a missile out of the sky (hopefully the ones we aimed at but definitely not always) is ok but water boarding and loud music are torture? I hope nobody from the ACLU reads these.

  • Bobbyv

    Do they call the drone attacks torture? This was a big issue when GWB was President, which is why closing Gitmo was so important. Remember my point, I am not arguing against them, only citing the difference in coverage now that a Democrat is in.

  • RedBarSoup

    So blowing people up with a missile out of the sky (hopefully the ones we aimed at but definitely not always) is ok but water boarding and loud music are torture?

    uhhhhh…..yes? Ever heard of the constitution? Especially the 8th amendment. Also, how can you even come close to compare the two? One is literally in the middle of a war taking out high risk targets. The other is while they are in a jail cell under detainment. I don’t even have a problem with waterboarding terrorists, but for you to try to compare drone attacks and waterboarding when it comes to cable news coverage is just asinine.

    Your argument that the media doesn’t cover it or talk bad about drone attacks isn’t even anywhere near being correct. I just Googled it and found 10 NBC News links to questioning drone attacks and their methods.

  • cathy

    I don’t know how anyone can watch Obama or any of his staff talk. When their are asked a hard question or are caught lying, they smile and call on a reporter that will give them a softball question.
    I watch a little of MSNBC everyday. But I see little news. What I see is Obama is the first president to go to country A. Isn’t it great that our President is going to country A. We have the greatest President because he went to country A. Republican are so stupid for not seeing how great this president is.
    But I have never seen MSNBC ask any questions about what happened in Libya. All the say is “The President said he did everything he could, there is nothing more that we need to know.” Do you MSNBC viewers truly not want to know what went wrong? If the President did everything he could to save the people in Libya then where is the military ordered. He has to give them a written ordered for the military to act. And there was time for the military to act. So, where is the order and who didn’t follow it.
    Watergate would not have bring brought to the American’s people attention if it wasn’t for the press. During watergate the press pressed to uncover the truth. But MSNBC isn’t even asking any questions and when other news agencies uncover documents showing that the Obama administration is lying, MSNBC works hard on covering for Obama.
    I know that Fox news is reporting news because I watch BBC news, local news, and other countries news reports and I see that those stations are reporting the same facts. When is the last time MSNBC showed part of a local news cast?

  • cathy

    Major problems with our country right now:
    1) Hatred (scapegoats) – the present administration uses hatred. Right now it’s the rich and that the rich do not pay their “fair share” (a term that no one can explain.) But when the Republicans say lets eliminate deduction (in areas that with get us more money from the BIG business people) Obama says no. You see if you really listen to who Obama wants to tax it’s the middle and small business owners. Obama wants these people to go out of business. Because Obama believes in BIG BUSINESS and BIG GOVERNMENT.
    2) People don’t understand how the economy works. The economy will only improve by increasing investments in the economy (IE: businesses) If you increase the taxes on investment earnings, you decrease the amount of money people have to invest or will risk in investments. This will create a down turn in the economy.
    3) People don’t understand how a business works. The goal of any business is to make as big of profit as they can. The more profitable a business is, the more people will invest in the company. The more investors you have the more you can expand the business. When a business expands it creates more jobs.
    4) People don’t understand how a job works or the value of a job. All jobs have different values based on the skill level of the person needed to fill the job. If it’s low skill and 95% of Americans can learn to do the job in an hour, the jobs value is min. wage. It’s not a businesses responsibility to make sure that it’s employees make enough money to live on. Now, businesses do realize that truly hard working reliable employees are a great asset and these type of person will move up quickly in a company. Most companies look at there min wage jobs as starting positions mostly filled by high school, college students, or people only wanting part time work.
    5) People don’t understand how Unions work. People think that Unions are the great savor of the worker. But that is not always the truth. Some Unions are good and some are bad. I personally think that many Unions have become to big. They seek out companies to Unionize not for the good of the workers but for the good of the Union personnel. They make many promises to the workers and give them very little in the end. I have worked for retail unions. They promise the world but in the end my take home pay was less with the Union because of dues. Also the Union doesn’t explain to you that once you join a Union. The Union is the only spokes person you have. If your union rep doesn’t do their job you are out of luck. Also once you are in a union the Union contract over rules any state or federal workers rights laws. In short the Union can sign your rights away for you.
    6) People don’t understand what a budget is or how to live within their means. The average American sees no problem with the country being in debt because they are in debt too. This week I’ve heard about how little Walmart employees are paid. But why if these people are so poorly paid, do I see so many of them talking on their I-Phone when they are on break. It costs at least $60 a month to use one. If you can’t pay your rent or buy food what are you doing paying $60 a month for a I=phone?

    Thank you cathy. If Benghazi happened under bush that’s all you would here from the MSM.

  • Sicilian Papa

    Not to worry RedBarSoup the corrupt media will always protect the left.

    Drone attacks kill people. As far as I know waterboarding a couple of murderer terrorists did not.

    The online news is becoming as bad the corrupt media on television. Pure propaganda.

    Headline: Obama looks to put Benghazi PR disaster behind him.

    No mention of scandal or cover up worse than Watergate.

    It must be nice to own that poodle. Most of the people at a party I attended had not heard about any cover up only the attack on Sept. 11, 2012. They all knew about Patreus’s girlfriend and what went on there.

  • Coffee Steve

    Good Morning Everyone, I may actually have some time to post a few things from time to time this week :-) But nesxt week through Christmas is a different stoty LOL

    Congress is back this week, Oh joy! Want to know what the stock market thinks about their ability to stop the money crises? Trust me, its not looking good.

    @S. Papa
    The online news is becoming as bad the corrupt media on television. Pure propaganda.

    I will be honest Mike, The past few weeks I haven’t watched any TV news networks, and I mean not one minute of it, No fox, no NBC etc. None, Nada.

    I read some on-line and some Bloggers I trust to know who write facts and truth about stories. I do from time to time catch the local news. I don’t even read my newspaper in Louisville, the C-J, they are about as bad as it is on the propaganda issue.

    That’s aprt of the problem so many out there actually believe they are hearing and seeing the truth when in fact they are hearing and seeing manufactured news to guide their thoughts.

    BBL..some little shopping to do.

  • Raz

    Soupy, I think you are kind of forgetting the reason for waterboarding, to get information. If you blow them up in that drone strike, you learn nothing other then how big a hole in the ground a missle can make. “Arm over here, leg over there, oh de do da day.”

  • Raz

    What I would like to see some focus on, and Fox did a little of it, is the American Community Survey-it’s put out by the Commerce Dept. If you got one, you would know why I am concerned. When it arrived, I sat down to fill it out and it wasn’t until half way through when the questions were getting intrusive….how many rooms does my house have, how many bathrooms, how much do I make, how long does it take me to get to work, where do I work, can you clean yourself. Huh? Why do you wanna know where I work and if I can clean my funky old butt? Went to ‘Truth is Treason’ website and down loaded the refusal letter, but not before the Commerce Dept sent another survey, called 10 tims and then sent someone to my door with a threatening letter. And if you think the ACLU would get involved…HA! They are too busy trying to stamp out Baby Jesus.

    chalk up another for our Liar in Chief!!

    US to leave 10,000 troops in Afghanistan past 2014…

  • Coffee Steve

    Morning again everyone

    Hey Rats, Don’t know about you but I use red, green, yellow and Orange bell peppers in about everything I cook, dude they are going up 50%. Today alone they are costing me almost $2.00 a pepper (Except Green), That stinks man

    So let me get this straight, the people who are against waterboarding and loud music on the Left are perfectly okay with blowing people up randomly? So what we should do is blow everybody up and nobody would have a problem with the civil rights of suspected terrorists? Before you mock me think about what you are writing because this is what you are saying. Are we sure the high risk targets we blow up during war are more guilty than the high risk targets we capture?

    I’m coming at this from a media coverage perspective, not from a Constitution perspective. Are you telling me the coverage of Gitmo and torture and drone attacks is the same as when GWB was Pres? Did Gitmo even come up much during the campaign?

    Remember again, I am not against these tactics if that is what the President wants.

    I have used the red ones a lot because they are sweeter but they have been well over a buck a peper and sometinmes as high as 2 bucks here for some time! They run a 10 for $10 here but i dont like freezing them as they loose the additional quality that I am paying for.

    Prices are going higher and higher because of the draught they say (but one of the produce guys at the store I shop said most everything is irrigated and the draught did not have that big of effect because the farmer would have still watered everyday unless we got into the monsoons!!

    Remember this Buddy, it is looks prettier it costs more! It is that way because they get away with it! Red pepper seeds cost me the same as green pepper seed and the yeild was always about the same! Go figure!

  • Coffee Steve

    @Ratboy

    Tell you what dude, this ole boy next year is going to grow tons of peppers (all kinds) and I will be sharing them with family, friends and neighbors. I realize the drought effected many crops but the pepper crop should not have been affected that much. Allot of peppers are greenhouse grown.

    I’m setting up a winter green house (small) this week and will see how that goes, if it does fine I’ll tell you the procedure.

    What I can tell it would be less that 50 bucks to set up one.
