    Concerning the state of Michigan: As a resident of the beautiful southwest corner of the state, I have long advocated declaring everything south of Saginaw and east of Jackson to be a part of Ohio, and going to war to force them to take it.

    @Ratboy

    #1 – NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams = 9,310,000

    #2 – ABC World News with Diane Sawyer = 8,488,000

    #3 – CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley = 7,138,000

    #4 – Fox News O’Reilly Factor = 3,356,000

    Ouch!!! That’s gotta hurt!

  • Mark2

    CNN Digital Maintains Top Spot for 2012 and Liberal Media Internet sites dominate in 2012.

    Like I’ve said a million times…more people get their news from the Internet and Broadcast News than any other means.

    lol–I see why after looking at the photos.

  • d.d.

    Letmethink,

    I’ve read over the last few years what our gold supplies are supposed to be , how they are stored etc. , but , with the German Bundesbank reporting they want a % of their gold back & it will take the Federal Reserve 7 years to return it, I immediately thought of (re)hypothecation in our gold reserve. When Germany receives gold from the US , the Bundesbank will PHYSICALLY VERIFY THE BARS, since tungsten is used by cartels to cut gold.

    Gabriel has been extremely suspicious of the Federal Reserve & criticizes it frequently on TVBTN’s.

    ——————–

    cathy ,

    You got me thinking on the jobs front with your posts on the subject.

    Workers who have been cross trained , those that speak multiple languages, & , those willing to take global positions will find less of an uphill battle than others in getting a job .

    If one looks at the hot positions , look to the specialized science & tech fields like :

    Mobile Applications Developers who develop apps for smartphones and tablets in 2013

    Business Intelligence Analysts who analyze data and help companies make better business decisions

    Network Architects: who assess business requirements and build networks that enable companies to share data

    Interactive Creative Directors: who take your leadership skills to the online space

    Interaction Designers: who take a walk in the customer’s shoes and make the company’s online experience better for the user

    User Experience (UX) Designers: who build a better online customer experience

    Other fields are, Synthetic biologists, who create organisms to perform specific tasks; nanotechnology systems engineers who fabricate new materials with ideal characteristics at the molecular level; Dr.s, Nurse Practitioners, & Physician Assistants ,for Obamacare; Interpreters and Translators & Biomedical Engineers,computer systems analyst, database administrator, software developer, computer programmer, mechanical engineer, IT manager, computer systems administrator and civil engineer.

    When our children were in college robotics was an open field , as was software engineering , &, large truck mechanics. One of our sons designs & teaches flying via simulators. He’s in Turkey right now , but, often goes to Sweden , the UK etc . A worker has to be flexible & able to travel.

    With the good comes the bad. Robotics has killed many manufacturing jobs & the new 3 D printing will too. I saw where Chrysler just purchased a 3 D printer the size of a Volkswagen for making parts.
    Replicators & 3 D printers can already make guns & ammunition , medical titanium parts & screws , meat & more. Moneywatch says 3D printing will transform every industry.

    There have to be less students graduating with degrees in the Arts , Humanities & Liberal Arts, Social Science if they want jobs & more graduating in Tech & Science. There should be high schools just for these subjects before one goes on to tech school or with those majors in college. There should be more mentoring in these fields, too.

    Matthew,

    I didn’t know who Alex Jones was , so I had to Google him. While doing that I came across this

    Alex Jones

  • Raz

    Hey Redbar, just like it made perfect sense for MSNBC to keep Chris Matthews, even though he has terminal hoof in mouth disease.

  • Matthew

    I didn’t know who Alex Jones was , so I had to Google him. While doing that I came across this

    Alex Jones

    Hahahaha, that’s wonderful. I’m pretty sure the whole conspiracy theory thing has been his routine since the 80s; I also think he hates Glenn Beck for (at one time) having a similar radio show, but going on to achieve much greater success. He’s a phony, but I don’t resent that fact the way I do with Morgan, since it’s not like Alex Jones is a prime time contributor on CNN.

  • cathy

    Letmethink, I spent the first 18 years of my life 35 miles south of Chicago. Then I worked in the city for 6. After that I moved to Detroit.

    What I change. In Chicago I could work until 1 am and still feel safe walking to the train and taking it home. The loop was a safe area at all hours. I never know a person who was assaulted or robbed in the six years. Never seen a crime either and I spend all my weekends in the city.
    When I moved to Detroit, I worked downtown for only one year. In that one year 5 co-workers were raped and over a dozen where robbed. No one worked after 7 pm in the summer because of safety. No one worked after 6 pm in the winter. I watched Detroit police pull 28 body bags out of the field across the street from my building.

    Cities can make it through corruption. Again look at Chicago. What they can’t make it through is racial hatred and class warfare. That’s Detroit’s problem. Coleman Young many times said “We don’t need any crackers money.” If a rich white businessman come up with a plan to rebuild a landmark, Young would come up with a reason why not to let them pay it and he would give it to an under funded black businessman. And the building would rot.

    @Rat, when you only make $50,000 $30 is a lot of money.

  • Raz

    Mark 2,
    you gave the list of network news with Fox at the bottom.
    Have you considered that MSNBC is below Fox?

  • usa8888

    La Pierre is conducting a bogus “national poll” in an ad on CBS News website–FYI

  • usa8888

    CBS News has the latest news on the Algerian hostage crisis. It has been resolved. Fox has nothing on it but is running mis-information about the public liking the NRA…and not reporting the all American polls show the public favors Obama’s gun policy…

  • Raz

    Hey rat–almost half of Fox ratings for billo, hannity, and greta are old people, nothing wrong with that, but that’s a fact….Not true for MSNBC and CNN…Fox has the right wing, generally low educated, Lawrence Welk crowd locked up

    USA8888, if there is nothing wrong with being older-why are you clumping them together and marginalizing them. Which is kind of ageist.
    Lawrence Welk…really? Most folks who watched that the first time round are in their 90’s. Some how I think they have a much younger audience if the stats are correct. Which means that we’re looking at the ‘old’ folks how grew up with Elvis, Carl Perkins and The Beatles. Which means a lot of these folks were in the service (time of the draft) and the GI bill. Which means a lot of them went to college. So you are looking at a lot of old hipsters who just look at things with a conservative view on some things.
    So get off my little blue Carl Perkins, you ageist whippersnapper and pull up your pants cuz you know nothing about nothing.

  • Hoppy

    @Raz,

    Surely you must be aware that the leaders of the NRA have no credibility. You can determine that by the fact that they have grey hair.

  • cathy

    CBS news says the Algerian Hostage crisis is over. But every other News agency is saying that it is not. CBS News report it was over at 12:43 pm but this is from the CNN site[Updated at 1:19 p.m. ET] A U.S. State Department spokeswoman says the U.S. will not negotiate a prisoner exchange with terrorists holding captives in Algeria. It was unclear how many, if any, Americans were being held hostage.

    Who do you believe? Who do we believe? Time will tell who is right.

  • usa8888

    Ok, I won’t step on your blue suede shoes….

  • Ratboy

    @ #1 – NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams = 9,310,000

    #2 – ABC World News with Diane Sawyer = 8,488,000

    #3 – CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley = 7,138,000

    #4 – Fox News O’Reilly Factor = 3,356,000

    Ouch!!! That’s gotta hurt!

    this from a person who supposedly delt with national security and …………are ya ready?……………….intelligence! :lol: :lol: :lol:

  • Hoppy

    An interesting bit of testimony regarding gun control. The last sentence is particularly appropriate to the discussion.

    [youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i7R5PtDanOk?rel=0&w=420&h=315

  • cathy

    For some reason the site won’t let me post the link. So you need to go to the CBS news website.

    USA caught lying again. CBS did not say Algeria hostage crisis was over.

  • Raz

    @Raz,

    Surely you must be aware that the leaders of the NRA have no credibility. You can determine that by the fact that they have grey hair

    Interesting observation….which means a good hunk of the Democratic party must not have any credibility either…folicly speaking.
