    Carney didn’t explain how the Drone strikes are fully consistent with the constitution

    IMO the liberal media (which is 90% of the media) is caught between a rock and a hard place. The left does not like the torture and killing but God forbid they make a big deal out of it and upset the King!

    If this was a republican president doing the same thing the media would be all over it like a hobo on a ham sandwich and so would the politicians!! Go back and listen to some of what Obama said about Bush and Cheney but when it is his idea ALL IS GOOD LEGAL AND JUST! :lol:

  • Jay

    Yea, I can’t rely on MSNBC for all my news anymore. Rachel is the only one of them who isn’t afraid to criticize the president, and obviously she doesn’t have enough time in her hour to cover everything. However, the same is probably true for Fox and CNN. Have you seen how CNN presents the gun debate? That’s biased news at its worst.

  • Jay

    To clarify, Fox and CNN probably prefer to cover a certain type of story in the same way. Remember that time the Fox reporter got punched in the face at the Union protest?

  • Coffee Steve


    Just now checking the news, horrible about the Denver story

    Just like CS to leave out the warning ” Do not use yellow snow.

    **WARNING*** :-) Problem is Rats enjoys making the snow yellow :mrgreen:

    It feels like we’re killing more children than we used to. :-(

    Glee and The Office drew fewer total viewers than NCIS during the 2009–10 season, but earned an average of $272,694 and $213,617 per commercial respectively, compared to $150,708 for NCIS.”

    Except CBS can charge less because they know NCIS will be around a lot longer. They were just renewed for their 11th year. The Office is ending, Glee is running it’s course. So the question comes down to…do you go for the long money or the short money?

    Story changing

    I just went to all the major sites, AP, ABC, FOX, etc and no one has this as a breaking story or a story at all for that matter! Unbeleivable!

  • Jay

    Maybe it’s more common than we’re aware of. :-(

  • Ratboy

    @ Raz
    do you go for the long money or the short money?

    You go for the Mark2 money because apparantly that is the only thing that counts!!!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

  • Coffee Steve
  • Jay

    Mark2 didn’t want to admit anyone else was right. I don’t personally think he should be arguing about the importance of any given demographic, because he doesn’t seem to know much about it. :-(

  • Jay

    I’m surprised Greta isn’t beating Lawrence O’Donnell by more though. He is sort of intolerant of views that disagree with his. However, you have to give him credit for being willing to talk to the people who hold those views. :D

    The funniest part was he decided he knows more that the big cheese of this site, the GURU, the boss!! :lol: :lol: :lol: (then some side funnies, Jeffie and others took the side of Mark2 :lol: :lol: )

    Obamacare red tape burden: 127,602,371 hours yearly

    Complying with the raging tsunami of new Obamacare rules and regulations will cost American businesses and families 127 million hours annually, enough time to carve out another 1,039 Mount Rushmores which took 14 years complete, according to a new House report.

    Based on figures from President Obama’s own Office of Management and Budget and Internal Revenue Service, the new report provided to Secrets reveals that the health reform law set to fully go into effect in 11 months will be the most costly federal burden to hit American in generations. And that hardship will grow as more rules are released.

    Just consider: Using the lowest possible wage of an employee complying with Obamacare paperwork–the federal minimum wage–it will cost nearly $1 billion. Put another way: The Empire State building, which took 7 million hours to build, could be erected another 17 times in the time required every year to handle Obamacare rules and regulations.

  • Jay

    I checked the IBTimes article on that and all the comments compare him to democrats. :-(

  • Jay

    Conservatives should propose some reforms for the Affordable Care Act if they hate it so much. It’s worth noting that the worst aspect, the individual mandate, was originally a republican idea.

    I think that something is interpreting your comments before they are sent to TVbtN, which in turn doesn’t recognize the interpretations of, say, smileys.
    I was able to open the “Mercedes Benz” link that you posted, and that was a youtube mobile page with icons/links (to the actual video, I suppose) but the address associated with the icon at the top (JJ-Mercedes Benz icon) was invalid on my end. I wasn’t sure if it was for a video of the unaccompanied version.
