Daily breaking news and news the liberal media doesn't want you to know, won't report, or just daily news issues.

Americans for many years have had to rely on left leaning biased news reporting from liberal media such as NBC, ABC, and CBS and the New York Times. As most of these outlets struggle to remain on the air and in print, the new media is flourishing and people are hearing both sides of the issues. This forum will provide people with a place to discuss daily news issues of any kind or discuss articles not printed or aired by the liberal news outlets.

1. The housing and financial collapses. The housing bust decimated Stockton’s housing prices, and so went the city’s property tax (and related) revenues. Housing prices plunged from nearly $400,000 in median home prices in 2006, down to $110,000 in 2009 (where median prices were in 2000 before the bubble.) Meanwhile the city has the second highest rate of foreclosures in the country. Revenues from related areas, such as: sales taxes, utility user’s taxes and housing permit fees also plunged. The city burned through emergency cash funds and took efforts to rein in spending that weren’t enough. For example, they issued a hiring freeze for open positions in May 2008 and cut the general fund by $90 million in the last three years. Despite those efforts they continued to run budget deficits.

2. Excessive optimism and unsustainable compensation promises. City policymakers appear to have mistaken the real estate bubble for real growth. (The Los Angeles Time

Pensions do so well that most of the pension dollars (in California for example, 75 cents of every dollar) paid to teachers, firefighters, and school employees comes from investment earnings, not contributions by government.

I agree with universal checks. So let’s move on. Universal checks will prevent felons and other previous lawbreakers from getting guns but we currently do not prosecute all attempts by these folks from trying to by a gun which is against the law. Why is that? I don’t know.

Universal background checks will make you feel good but until the Gov’t complies a searchable list of the diagnosed mentally ill, schizophrenics, bipolar etc, (illnesses you can have and pass a background check) you will be missing the on the large population who are most likely to commit the crimes that we find so disgusting. You don’t see anyone rushing this idea to the forefront because the ACLU will fight this as a privacy issue.

If we cut funding for Big Bird, you can keep every control tower in the USA fully staffed. So do you want to keep Big Bird or Air Traffic Control and airline safety?

Paris police used tear gas and batons to fight crowds who pushed their way onto the landmark Champs-Elysees avenue and toward the presidential palace as part of a huge protest against a draft law allowing same-sex couples to marry and adopt children. Hundreds of thousands of people — conservative activists, schoolchildren with their parents, retirees, priests — converged on the capital Sunday in a last-ditch bid to stop the bill, many bused in from the French provinces.

In 1983 50 corporations controlled the media, now that is down to 6, and with new FCC regs., it may get even more monopolized, liberal media bias, pffft, corporate media bias.

One other tidbit, Fox sued the State of Florida, so they would not have to be factual, kinda takes away their credibility, yes.

David Gregory is a shill for the leftist Socialist agenda. I was no big fan of Russert, but at least he was not as obvious in his bias.

After NBC’s David Gregory’s softball interview with Mayor Bloomberg today on gun control and assault weapons, , Wayne LaPierre, the NRA's CEO and executive vice president, chewed up and spit out David Gregory on NBC this morning. Gregory had no retort when presented facts by LaPierre. I doubt if you will ever see LaPierre on Gregory’s program again.

You get the Libs bombarding us with Anti gun c r a p and when they have a chance to do something about it they back down. I am against the ban but when you have a group that claims to support something and then back down when forced to take a stand, they need to be called on it.
