Obviously, I'm on the puter, but hubby is watching the news, so I can't help but hear it, also. Knowing my husband, I'm sure it's FOX he's watching, just to let you know.
Democrat delegates for the 2008 election were just being interviewed, and they claim that they were forced to cast their votes for Obama when they intended to vote for Hil. Do you know anything about this?
Of course they were compelled. Hilary was popular in the democratic party establishment and it is no surprise that some delegates would have preferred her. But delegates are agents of the democratic party. It would be perverse indeed if Obama was entitled to lead the ticket for the democratic party in the general election based on the will of voters during the democratic primaries (and he was) and then Hilary is selected to run for president in his stead because of the preferences of unelected delegates.
Obama one-upped her. Hil just didn't have enough time to think about rigging it all in her favor, otherwise, she would have done it first. She is as calculating as the president. No ifs, ands, or buts.
hahahha, Fox tells so many lies it is just silly. Their new plan of attack is to force all their local news networks to report the same garbage. Sad, so sad.
Why don't you watch it and see for yourself (Jim has said elsewhere that he doesn't get to see Fox News). Or check their website? Contrast that against news that really is "Fair and Balanced" like National Public Radio.
How do I know that is fair? Because they tell me things I don't like as often as they tell me things that support my views. Because they do honest interviews with Conservatives and Liberals without snide commentary.
Fox News was banned from either England or the U.K (I forget) specifically because of their obvious conservative bias. The network is plainly an outlet for Rupert's personal opinions.
So what are the lies?
Isn't sky news the fox sister station in the UK?
Isn't it owned by Rupert Murdoch?
He owns quite a bit of media in the UK.
Seems your news isn't too reliable.
My apologies. It was Canada. You might want to go read the Wikipediia article on the channel you don't watch but think is wonderful just the same.
I think it is rather interesting how many conservatives claim never to have watched Fox, but are quick to defend it anyway.
I'm always quick to defend anybody or anything from the lies of the left.
I won't even bother to find out if you are correct about Canada I will assume its just more of the same.
I couldn't resist looking.
Wikipedia says fox is shown in Canada.
Pretty much anything that comes out of Glenn Beck's mouth.
The problem with Glenn Beck is that his opinions cannot be backed up by evidence. He has developed some strange, sick following and unfortunately that following largely believes Beck’s words are gospel. Recently, as you probably know, he launched his own online university where individuals can take classes on history, economy, and religion. Yikes. Learning history and economics from Glenn Beck would be like trying to learn respect and humility from Kanye West.
Here are some of Glenn Beck’s claims, all proven completely false by Pulitzer Prize winning site politifact.com:
1. Labor union president Andy Stern is “most frequent visitor” at the White House.
2.Less than 10% of Obama’s Cabinet appointees “have any experience in the private sector.”
3.“Mitt Romney … gave you government health care that is now bankrupting the state” of Massachusetts.
4.Forty-five percent of doctors “say they’ll quit” if health care reform passes.
5.“Why do we have automatic citizenship upon birth? We’re the only country in the world that has it.”
6.“In the health care bill, we’re now offering insurance for dogs.”
7.John Holdren, director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, “has proposed forcing abortions and putting sterilants in the drinking water to control population.”
8.Franklin Roosevelt never allocated more than 12 percent of GDP to federal spending, while the percentage for Barack Obama is not projected to drop below 22.8 percent.
9.Chile ranks third internationally in economic freedom, while the U.S. ranks 17th.
10.“You don’t know if this (the H1N1 vaccine) is gonna cause neurological damage like it did in the 1970s.”
There are hundreds more of course, but the main point of concern is this: What happens to education when it is based upon opinions without evidence? What happens to education when poor opinions are disguised as fact?
Previously, I used to simply think that lunatics like Beck and Limbaugh were simply “entertainers.” I falsely hoped that their audience understood that they were crazy and delusional, and that they made such ridiculous statements only to grow their audience. I assumed it was all about money: I’ll say the dumbest things I can so people keep returning to hear what dumb thing I’ll say next. But now Beck has his own university?
You realize of course that some percentage of Fox viewers will enroll in Beck’s university and consider themselves to be educated in history, economics, and religion, right? You realize how scary that is, right? Of course, Beck’s university is in no way accredited and whatever “degree” you earn from it won’t mean anything at all. Glnen Beck does not even have a graduate level degree. How can he pretend to create a university

"Learning history and economics from Glenn Beck would be like trying to learn respect and humility from Kanye West."
I don't think he could teach me much about history but the guy is obviously making some money.
Turn on you Television tonight and you'll hear three hours of lies, spin and misinformation.
I thought this thread was about Hillary Clinton?
Well, I figured the fix was in when the Kennedys sided with Obama.
Normally all women, irrespespective of nationality, are very much short tempered and will take hasty decisions. They will not analyse the pros and cons of their actions and decisions. In a time when America is pitted in an economic crisis, it would have proved disastrous if Ms.Hillary became President.
In 1971, when Mrs.Indira Gandhi was Indian Prime Minister, she one day called on Gen.Maneksha, then Army chief and march the army into East Pakistan. But the Army Chief prevailed on her not to act hastily and time was not ripe for that. It was harvest season. All the muslim countries were with Pakistan. No other country would help India, if war breaks out. So, she let the suffering of East Bengalis to their fate for 9 months, suffering at the hands of Pakistan army. Taking all precautions, she declared war on 3-12-1971 on Pakistan and reaped a decisive victory. If she had ignored the Army chief's advise at that time, history would have been different.
That is the difference between men and women in critical times. This applies to Ms.Hillary also.
Well.... I suppose if you are correct.. then we would have to blame your mother for your ability to generalise with such raw wisdom.
My mother is different for me. She cared for me and I cared for her till her last breath. Because of that, no one will hesitate to tell the truth. If my mother is a woman, then my father was a man. It is not that matter we are discussing. It is women in polics, who goes to decision making positions.
Please have some matured wisdom.
Yea, I'm going to assume your comment is some kind of satire. Because it is either than you you time travelled here from 100 year ago... which doesn't seem too likely.
Don't forget how their menstrual cycles can interfere with their decision making abilities!
I can't believe you made such a sexist comment!! Women are short tempered? That's almost funny. If that's true, why are men so much more prone to fighting and other forms of aggression? Look at some real statistics before making such a statement.
Now now little lady, calm down. Have a bon bon.
I think the gentleman has made similar comments in the past. It is probably cultural; my father in law (came over from Italy in the thirties) had similar disdain for women.
He may eventually gain more wisdom as he is exposed to more women who do not match his stereotypes.
Or who woop him upside the head and make him realize women are anyone's equal.
As I said, you have come to a hasty conclusion that I am less wise and need more wisdom. Any matured person can differentiate between the attitudes of men and women.
Women are more security conscious and fear that someone will trespass into their privacy, even if all are engaged in their own work.
I am place in family and in my society among a lot of women who are very much intelligent, some more intelligent than men. But when they are placed in critical positions, decision making positions, they over-react and spoil the beans.
"Why are men so much more prone to fighting and other forms of aggression?"
I stand by my comments. Am I not privileged to comment on women who are my sisters and mothers? They are all short tempered and come to a wrong conclusion without analysing things...
It is not sexist comment.... It can be gender comment only. Dont misinterpret.
I hope you can understand this. There seems to be a language barrier here. Today, in American Society; Women think with a clear head, and act with a sense of Honor and Duty just like Men, here in Modern America; men and women are equal in intellegence and sometimes, in physical strength. This is a different Place and a different Time. I hope you understand and take no offense.
India is not like America. Here, women are more intelligent than men and lead the family or do their duty with a sense of honour. America is modern to you. But India is ancient and also modern. The only thing which differentiate us is that we have not yet tested whether women are equally physically strong. We shall never test that either.
I take no offence in anything. This is only a discussing forum.
I admire Hillary Clinton and she can be a good President, I will wait for that in 2012.
Sadly, you're gonna be disappointed once again. Hillary's a smart woman. An excellent politician. Would probably make a decent President. She only has one problem. Her unlikability rating is off the chart based on most polls. In a nutshell, folks say she's smart, but she's shrew and unlikable. In politics, image is everything. Remember Dukakis? His Presidential aspirations went down the drain just because he climbed into a tank with a helmut on and looked like Beetle Bailey. Bye bye campaign. That's just the way it works. How do you think Obama got elected. No experience, no background. Lots of charm and image.
I just find it Interesting that no one is talking about Marc Mezvinsky who married Chelsea. Marcs Father Ed Mezvinsky was charged with fraud on a " Nigerian Investment Scam ". And he was also convicted and did 5 years. Marc worked for Goldman Sachs and Chelsea now works for a hedgefund with the help of George Soros. The criminals circle the wagons I guess !
http://www.bbcnewsamerica.com/ed-mezvin … insky.html
Um...what do the purported acts of the father of the husband of hilary's daughter have to do with anything?
Theives hang in bunches. Doyou think it is any accident the American press did not report this ? And also Hillary had to give back some campaign contributions during the campaign as she was caught accepting from one of the guys on the FBIs wanted list. Even the American press ran that one. Think if she wasn't caught she woulda gave back the money ? Not a chance. And I find the apples don't fall far from the tree as both Marc and Chelsea work for hedge funds now.
It was unreported because it is plainly irrelevant to anything. What about the father of the father of the man married by the daughter of Hilary Clinton? The press did not say anything about that guy either. Clearly more overwhelming evidence of whatever point you are making. "Thieves hangs in bunches" is not exactly a compelling argument.
But nonetheless the truth. And we all know that American press spins by commission and omission. The BBC told the truth. I know the truth obviously does not interest you.
What doesn't interest us is the 'friend-of-the-brother-of the-groom was once arrested for peeing behind a bush. Which is not relevent unless perhaps its George W. Bush. And even then not very relevent.
Guilt by association - done by the right or the left - is cheap gossip.
Tony, you might want to check your source. My security software gave me a warning about the site. It purports to be the BBC but is obviously not. And the writing was definitely not BBC material:
"As his fraudulent activities were discovered, he was referred to as a wave of financial crimes."
Find a better source and I might take your story seriously.
Edit: I dug a little further and it looks like Papa was a little nuts, and yes, he did scam a lot of people out of a lot of money. Here's an interesting story about what he did:

Heres another one for ya William
http://www.zimbio.com/Ed+Mezvinsky/arti … +Pioneered
Thanks Tony, I also found a link with some info about him and edited it into my first post.
Tony, this is Sins of the father cheap gossip. And, it's not a crime to work for Goodman Sachs. We would all work there if we had a chance. We have a real problem we have to solve right now.
How are we going to save VENUGOPAL SIVAGNA from the Women of American? He may be off his medication and walking the streets unprotected.
So Tony - you do know that G.W. Bush's granddad, Prescott Bush, was an ardent Nazi supporter and even continued to trade with them after we declared war?
http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2004/se … ndworldwar
He was also a big supporter of Planned Parenthood.
He was no ardent Nazi supporter.

Combining Mr.Mezvinki's criminal past with Hillary's...
Well let's just call them ethical miscues, I think a lot of watchdogs will be keeping their eyes on the happy couple.
Not I. I'm not starting any rumors. You are the one who said in the same post:
"Combining Mr. M's criminal past with Hillary's"
and "the happy couple"
What other conclusion could I draw?
Kidding. My post obviously meant that Chelsea and what's his face (I don't actually care much about them) were the happy couple. Not Hillary and that other What's his name (who I also don't give a rat's patootie about). It's fodder for TMZ and People magazine - not much else.
It's much more relevant to me that the Chargers are imploding this year.
I must admit that I favored Mrs. Clinton over Obama, hands down.
The only thing I can say is "I hope no one accepted cigars from the bride's father."
Ha ha! I bet the bride's father and the groom's father did sit down to a nice stogey chat.
Sometimes a cigar is just a ....
How come we never talk about women getting in touch with their masculine side?
I think that's sexist!
Where do you get your news from exactly.
I think someones been lying to you.
I m clark paul. My hubby is watching the news, so I can't help but hear it, also.Fox News was banned from either England or the U.K specifically because of their obvious conservative bias. The network is plainly an outlet for Rupert's personal opinions.I m very happy after using this forum.
