    For all but a lesson for marktwo is stupid

    From TVBTMs FAQ at the top of the page.

    Not that mark the stupid one will read and comprehend.

    “3. Why all this focus on 18-34 and 18-49 year olds! It’s the people over 50 who have all the money. Why be ageist?

    I know it is counter-intuitive for some people, but the focus on the younger age demographics isn’t a function of spending power or ageism, it’s a function of advertisers desire to reach younger viewers, and relative availability. It’s much, much easier to reach a 60 year old than a 25 year old via television advertising because on average a higher percentage of 60 year olds watch a higher percentage of television than 25 year olds.

    Relatively speaking, the 60 year old is easy to reach and the 25 year old far more scarce. The relative scarcity of younger viewers increases both the focus and advertising premiums paid for younger viewers.

    Whether this is good, bad, right or wrong, I can’t really say. I can say, at least for now, that’s the way it is.

    It’s really not just about how old you are or how much money you have to spend. It’s also about how easy it is to reach you. The easier it is to reach you, the less advertisers are willing to pay for you, the harder it is to reach you, the more they are willing to pay.”

    hay mark the stupid one, find someone that might feel sorry for you and explain it to you using small words.

    CBO: Entitlements, ObamaCare To Make Up 53% of Federal Spending

    This is the collective majority Obama wanted/has created. More people depending upon others to support their lifestyles.

    Better known as un-informed voters, re. dumbocrats

    According to projections from the Congressional Budget Office (CBO), entitlements and ObamaCare spending will comprise 53 percent of all federal spending over the coming decade, totaling $24.9 trillion.

    In its updated Budget and Economic Outlook report released on Tuesday, the CBO projects that Social Security will account for $11.149 trillion in spending from 2014 to 2023 while federal health care entitlements, including Medicare, Medicaid, and ObamaCare, will spend $13.85 trillion. (That total includes TRICARE, CHIP, and “other” spending listed by the CBO under healthcare.)

    ObamaCare’s insurance subsidies, exchange costs, and other spending are expected to cost the government $949 billion over the next 10 years. Medicare is expected cost $8.1 trillion while Medicaid is expected to cost $4.4 trillion.

    Combined, these two entitlement categories (Social Security and all health care programs) will comprise 52.9 percent of the projected $47.2 trillion in total federal outlays from 2014 to 2023.

    BUT WAIT!!!!! How can we SAVE the economy if we dont SPEND SPEND SPEND????

  • Raz

    Fox News provides a lot more material for criticism. This has been known by a growing majority. You would not know because of your admitted source of misinformation

    Jeff, I think it’s because they (Fox)are a lot more professional and have better things to talk about then MSNBC. MSNBC reminds me of Mrs Astor…if you don’t have anything nice to say about anyone…….

    But I like Sir Winston’s quote better when Mrs Astor said he was drunk and he replyed that she was ugly….

  • Jay

    Carney didn’t explain how the Drone strikes are fully consistent with the constitution. Under any circumstance, it’s a nasty practice, and not solely a constitutional issue. With the leaked memo summary, it’s been revealed that our government has a different definition of ‘imminent threat’ than most of us. Over the past few years, we have improved the drone program, and there have been very few civilian casualties as of late. Still, I fear that our government will get carried away with who they choose to kill, if they haven’t already.

    Some of you guys seem to think that the whole liberal media gives President Obama a pass on this issue. In truth, they have been quieter about it than I would expect. Most of the pundits really don’t mention it at all. However, Maddow does frequently devotes segments to it.

  • Jay

    I’m not defending the liberal media as a whole, to clarify. Sharpton, in my opinion, thinks its his duty to make the president look good. He frequently gives statistics, and claims they imply something that they don’t. Ed Schultz does this sometimes too but usually he corrects himself.

  • Jay


    Most of us liberals don’t oppose general cuts, I should add. The issue with sequestration is that it’s indiscriminate in how it does it. It supposedly will be more of a burden for the defense agencies, so I’m surprised republicans haven’t been stronger about preventing it.
