    Both parties agreed to the wars.

    Obamanomics is great for the stock market, but not for the middle-class, whose annual income has dropped considerably since he took office.
    Bush brought the Iraq war to the table. Had it been Obama that had done it, you would flip-flop on the war faster than you can blink an eye.

    Bush was at the helm during the 2nd greatest economic catastrophe this nation has ever faced. You cant get around that... unless you are willfully trying to ignore it.

    I fear more that people think John Stewart's show was really news and those who think Brian Williams is a paragon of honesty...

    Fox News is different from the rest because they're not as overtly liberal as the rest - as has been documented by more than one college study that you won't bother to look up because it goes against the meme...
    My point is.... when you get your news from only one source it is not a good thing. Because you are vetting your news sources based on what you want to hear.

    Really? Trickle down economics is absurd and historically destructive to every economy that comes within 10 feet of it.

    No matter what I or you say, we're going to ruffle some feathers. I see a lot of arguments from both sides and I don't feel compelled to reply to everything. I take what some people say with a grain of salt and so should you and others. If the discussions get a little heated, you best bring a portable air conditioner.
    ...and therein lies the problem. Some people don't know when to stop reading or know when to exit. They are so caught up in their belief or ideology that they feel compelled to defend it here in a private forum as if the world will come to an immediate end if they don't. Their tunnel vision blinds them to the fact that there are others with alternative views, and instead of accepting that fact, they despise it. They often cast the first stone, and then cry foul when the stone is caught and thrown back at them. For some reason, they never see their own comments and replies as offensive to those with alternative views, but have no problem calling the comments and replies of others as being offensive to them. Then they hit the report button to have a mod come in and punish the reported person, but then get ticked off when we look at the totality of the situation and find that they were the instigators. Having said that, here's a reminder: There is a warning/disclaimer at the top of threads like this that basically states -participate at your own risk-. In laymans terms, that means there is a good chance that something contained therein will offend or tick you off. You can decide to read the comments and replies therein or select another topic to read. The choice is always "YOURS" to make. If you opt to enter, wear your big boy and big girl pants and understand that the things you state may be vigorously challenged and you may even be ridiculed for it. If you don't have the discipline or inner strength to deal with stuff like that, do everyone, including yourself, a favor and stay away from threads that have warnings and/or disclaimers associated with them.

    Wrong! No one was run off. That person decided to leave. As for 'hating' liberals, well, I know a lot of liberals, and I don't hate any of them. Do we disagree on things? Of course, we do, but I also disagree with conservatives on some things. Finally, in regard to your parting shot, I see it as casting the first stone.

    It's funny what the last straw for some people is. Call them out for bad spelling and grammar. "OMFGBBQ I'm out of here!" Or when someone criticizes a news outlet that they like they can't stand it and decide they're going to "leave." Really? At least some of the people who have opposing sides to what the conservative side here has to say continue to have a conversation and don't make like jellyfish.

    People want to act like they can't ever discuss an iPhone with someone who thinks NPR or Fox News sucks. Maybe it just me, but I can absolutely still throwback a couple of beers with the most hardcore Christian even if I think he's completely nuts. There's nothing wrong with everyone not agreeing with my viewpoint.

    So trying to help a kid understand that some of the things he stated were not quite accurate is now considered bullying? If you had a sibling who also was an addict and you tried to help him, but couldn't, and then opted to have another family member try to reason with the addict, that would be considered bullying.

    Bullying? Really? Because someone thinks and states that another's primary news source is biased? If you read her post, she got her jaws all torqued because a moderator had the audacity to voice his opinion in a thread in the political section of the forum. She was not bullied.

    "Bullying" is getting over-used and in this case, as a thought ending cliche. Like saying anyone who ideologically disagrees with the President is racist...

    To be honest, some bullying builds character...or at least it used to. Now, we're just creating a society with the nervous demeanor of a chihuahua, and the depth of a kiddie pool.
    Making comments like that will probably cost you your participation trophy.

    Where did I say you bullied anyone oh wise one? I'm making fun of the sweeping generalizations and the tough guy talk. It feels like a high school locker room. But feel free to show me anywhere that I said someone was bullied in here.
