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.

Those actions and policies pursued by conservatives are the antithesis of the freedom that we supposedly hold dear.

Alright here is a question that needs to be asked by those who say progressives are out to "control" the population of this country.

Is that their singular aim? Or is the "control" just a side effect of the policies that progressives pursue?

This whole aspect of control is interesting in that we see conservatives getting up in arms about so called controls being put in place over people and themselves but yet we see them putting place laws that are meant to insure that their opponents have a harder time getting elected by changing voting laws,their religious rights are upheld and given more weight than the personal freedoms of others(the gay rights issue and contraceptive/abortion issue).

They are trying to control the freedom of others whom they do not agree with or have a problem with. I mean we all know what these new voting laws are about. Its to make it more difficult for a certain part of our population to vote and elect another Barack Obama.

A person that will work five days a week for years should enjoy more than a poverty level wage.We had no accountability for the billions that changed hands in the near past.Could that be an example of the freedom you desire? I can't trust the plutocrats on the right with my money and freedoms.

Sure. As technology, inventions, productivity improvements, health care innovations and discoveries, and if generational learning takes place as it should, of course mankind should be safer, stronger, smarter and more "civilized". History shows that crediting people and organizations who want to exercise control over a population ("progressives") leads to oligarchy, corruption, tyranny, and tragedy. Freedom will generate real progress. The Socialists in the CFAP can not be trusted with my freedom nor my money.

Not all on the right take an extremist view, nor do all on the left hold uber progressive values.As for the rights of the person on the street,it can be said they have many more than their ancestors.They may generally be assured that they will not unnecessarily lose their life in the workplace,and that their food and water supplies are not tainted with toxins.And that if there are incidents,there will be accountability.Civilization has a price attached.

Take a look at the "progressive" aggressive Center for American Progress Action Fund ... the policy positions, the means to their ends, etc. Strickland's new "work" will be promoting agendas of more and bigger Centralized Government control over aspects of American life and business. All that control requires bigger bureaucracy. All that bureaucracy requires money. By definition, "progressives" are pickpockets who use the law to do what they could not do one-on-one, on the street, to a free Citizen. This is not a spiritual activity. Sorry. I would respect him had he devoted his talents to some private charity work. C.F.A.P. ? Again, sorry.

Wddim-I must say,you haven't dropped your cynical views.I have known Ted for 25 years,and there is nothing neo- marxist about him.He is spiritual man who lives his Christian upbringing and formal religious education.

Why do you suppose everyone left when The Times went to pay to view?

Not sure since you don't have to pay to comment...what's with that??...

Strickland took a job heading up a neo-marxist money laundering outfit. No surprise. Failed as a Governor, maybe he can fail as head cheerleader and panhandler for the libs now.

BobDahler, yes it is nice...although the absence of many posters does beg the question you asked. i am not certain if they felt that they would not be able to comment and have yet to try or this just may be a silent protest. your guess would be as good as mine in this case. unfortunately i just rolled out of the rack and need to do the coffee, shower, shave thing for an evening engagement, otherwise we could have that conversation regarding business and sports. i it would be an interesting topic. have a great evening.

Afternoon, lts. I was thinking along the line of equipment, uniforms, etc. Perhaps not the best correlation... But money is made off pee-wee sports none the less.

It's nice to be able to reply hours after the fact, without the necessity of filtering through page after page of spam. Why do you suppose everyone left when The Times went to pay to view?

Oh, snap! Business already has, but that's OK, right?

moderation...that is hwy they have offered medical and accident insurnce policies. in addition at age 18 one can purchase insurance policies on their own that protect them against what you suggested. i could understand the argument if the players were being traded bwteen teams or even required to sign non-compete agreemenst as well as providing royalties to their former schools after going pro. in addition, college atheletes can leave and go pro anytime they wish. we should not turn colleges and universities into professional sports leagues...do you not think amateur sports have been ruined enough already?

lts- not all of those kids are on scholarship and while making bucks for the home, they could easily become injured and be ruined for life.Maybe they could earn minimum wage for their practice and playing time, to offset possible disabling injuries. They are mostly older than 18, whereas grade school and high schoolers generally are under 18,and the parents shoulder the responsibility

their "name brand" when and if they decide to go pro. perhaps that is worth the price to play. will grade school athletics be the next to feel the suckers of the unions as they feed to fill their coffers.

moderation...you are quite right...i did misunderstand your intention. i will say i am safe so far from the forum police. as jokingly said to fred...i still have my fake Acorn I.D. and voter registration at the ready if need be. frankly i don;t see the problem other than a case of waliking into something with their "Eyes Wide Shut". these college athletes go into their situation knowing full well that NCAA rules prohibit compensation beyond scholarships, free tutoring, travel expenses, meals and sports gear among many other perks that i may not be aware of but are still within the rules of their academic agreement. the sponsorships provided the universities as well as receipts from their box offices goes to support the operation of not only their particular program but also the sports, academic and opearations of other aspects of the university. the name recognition that they aquire by playing for these prestigous universities is priceless when it comes to adding value to t

lts- this time, you misunderstood my intended meaning.i was thinking the 'forum' police(-: anyway, if these young adult athletes feel their talents are being unfairly exploited,what could or may you suggest be a solution to their collective dissatisfaction?
