It seems to me that the malcontents are the people who are constantly
concerned about what other people do or want to do. There must be
some deep-seated insecurity involved when you are overly-concerned
about other people getting something they want that has absolutely no
effect on you.

You probably would have been against the 13th and the 19th Amendments.
We need a 28th Amendment proposed just to shake you people up.

And those "Children of Israel" are really for the most part children of the
Khazars, who were not Semites, not from that part of the world, only became
Jewish in the eighth century A.D. and have no relation whatever to the
children of Abraham -- if there ever really even was an Abraham, which is
now questioned by Israeli researchers.

For the most part that's all well and truly said, though you certainly fell
off the sidewalk with Fox News. But then it slipped my mind that you are a
leftist-"liberal" -- you show such good sense in other areas it's hard for
me to keep that in mind.

How you can not like a network with Megyn Kelly, Carl Cameron, Steve Doocy,
Margaret Hoover, Martha McCollum, Jane Skinner, et al., is more than I can
understand. (I'll grant you a couple of the more prominent guys there are
annoying, but I suppose that's "fair and balanced" for you.)

I don't know about "falling off the sidewalk with Fox News." It is just
there are certain individuals in the limelight at Fox who are not above
twisting the truth to their very distorted ends. In some instances they
pander to the ignorance of a very gullible audience, one such faithful
Fox audience member (not you) is a frequent contributer to these NG's

I consider myself to be a centrist, I lean to the left on social
issues, to the right on fiscal issues, and I have seen the best and
worst of crime & Law enforcement, leading me to be fair and mostly
unbiased as an investigator.
....and I was brought up with guns, which I feel have been unfairly
blamed for the actions of criminals. I can only agree that some degree
of control needs to be implemented, but not the unreasonable knee jerk
reaction we see from those with little understanding of our gun culture.

Regardless of the Murdockian claims of "fair & balanced." I find the
actual tilt to the right to be unashamedly unbalanced to the point they
maintain a circular trajectory.

I was quite enjoying this outrageously off-topic post...

...but now I need a new keyboard!

Witch trials and Fox News? Perfect pairing!
