    When referring to the U.S. Senate, it’s inaccurate to try to correlate popular opinion with the votes of the Members. The ten least populated states have the same number of votes at the ten most populated states, so their votes carry more weight. The ten least populated states may wish to have guns sold in vending machines, while the entire population of the ten most populated states might think this is a crazy idea. When the Constitution was written, the “big” states didn’t outnumber the “small” states to the extent they do now.

    I was up late last night into the early morning hours. During the O’Reilly-Hannity-Greta reruns, a Fox News reporter would break in live at the top and bottom of the hours to give a live update on the Texas fertilizer explosion. And, of course, the crawl in the bottom third of the screen was continuously running updates.

  • d.d.

    The FBI video had one suspect in the Boston terror attack that showed his hands. I’d like to see a clearer image. Are his fingernails bitten to the quick? Sherlock Holmes processed many clues from hands …. age , occupation , worry , nutrition.

  • Jeff

    Similar obsession with me, always popping on at the same time….

    Some body is missing a sooooooock!!

  • Ralph Hahn

    @Hillbilly: >>> You can’t get 90% of the people to agree if it’s night time at midnight. <<< And, 13 years into the 21st century, we still can't get to stop saying "Two Thousand (and) 13" in favor of the correct, traditional way of calling a year: "20-13." Our leader still says "Two Thousand and…" as well as every ad-libbed speech as "having a buncha…"

    I think you are correct, sir, that this 90% is for background checks and NOT for "gun control." I believe in the 2nd amendment, but I'm damn sure that we need background checks.

    @ Doug Z,

    “Fox was just trying to show the world how bad AP is”

    LOL , how much does Fox News pays you to worship them all over the internet ?

  • Mark2

    The NY Post totally botched things up with the bombing.

    They not only falsely reported that there were 12 deaths, but they also posted photos of 2 guys that turned out to be high schoool track runners who were completely innocent. I mean seriously…who does that?

    I wonder who owns the NY Post…they need to be investigated for such irresponsible reporting.

    @ Mark 2 ,

    “The NY Post totally botched things up with the bombing.”

    NY Post immediately after the bombings reported that a Saudi was caught as the suspected bomber. Washington post later reported that the Saudi was on a student visa with a female relative watching another male relative running the marathon. Both the student and his female companion are in the hospital being treated for burn wounds. NY Post is nothing more than yellow journalism.

  • Mark2

    Wow, just added the total key demo numbers from 5PM – 11PM and CNN actually beat Fox News.

    Mark 2

    If this is international terrorism O. and his merry men (and women) have a lot of explaining to do but the good news is they own the corrupt, secular, left wing, so-called objective media. Who cares what the NY Post does, compared to the propaganda wing of the progressive movement, they are an honest tabloid paper that makes a lot of mistakes.

    If this turns out to be international terror will the corrupt, secular, left wing, so-called objective cover up an international terror attack to protect O? I am guessing yes!

  • Mark2

    @DougZ “And 4000 other press oulets World wide”

    Not NBC.

    By the way, tell me one other press outlet that reported 12 deaths like the NY Post did…I’ll be waiting.
