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.

good morning moderation! i just finished enjoying a brown mule with a new cup of coffee. i am sure you are correct in that elections have been purchased for much less in the past. especially when you have the support of the all powerful media along with their "free" plugs and endorsements. with that behind you, it is hard not to win the public relations war. how have you been my friend?

General Motors bailout only loses 10 billion dollars so far! the news of the recent sale of government-owned GM stock to reduce it's share to approx. 7% was reported as a joyous occasion. i find it interesting how making a 49 billion dollar investment (Obama term for bailout) with a celebratory loss of 10 billion dollars representing a net 20% loss to the american taxpayer was a great investment. that does not account for any interest for the money initially borrowed by the treasury to "invest" in the GM stock. the actual loss to the taxpayer will be much greater than just the raw reported loss on the individual stocks. General Motors has played a shell game with its balance sheet from the get go to appear to be steadily profitable while reducing its long-term liabilities. while i support american companies, i do not support government intervention when we have mechanisms in place to handle such situations. just imagine what 10 billion dollars could do. since we are giving a

the rule of "never expect, never get disappointed", i still strove to wring as much pleasure out of each experience. your experience was right for you...i get that. it's your puppy to play with. nothing wrong with that. as for me, i came away with a much different point of view from my experiences while in service. nothing more...nothing less. my comment about being sad forr you was not meant to be a slam, it was just an expression of my wish for everyone to gain as much please from any experience as i have...and for that i make no apologies.

kendall, good morning and yes i enjoyed my round immensely. it was sunny, warm and beautiful. the temperature was perfect with just a slight northeast breeze to keep it nice. my only wish would be to score near where the temperature was! after a bit of pondering, it crossed my mind that the words printed on the page are very similar to the flag that you seem to place in such low regard. they both convey an idea, thought, dream or even way of life message that are instantly recognizable to anyone that has an understanding or ability to decipher the meanings behind the scribblings on printed pages or the colors, shapes, or images on the cloth that adorns the flagpole. one of the benefits of armed service is the exposure to many different people and cultures. i found that to be as rewarding as any other expericence i enjoyed. one thing stood out was how each person digested the sum of all of the influences around them, some thrived and some crumbled under the burden. although i live by t

Was talking about the importance of saving knowledge in bad times. Books are more resilient than digital media.

Enjoy your game, try to stay dry.

You are correct about powering up computers and that's part of the point. Say the worse case situation occurs, you need power to operate and transer knowledge trapped in a computer. With hard copies (books and the like) all you need is some natural light and the means to carry them from place to place.

I don't worry about these skirmishes we are getting into. But I do worry about a militant nation rising slowly and gaining the technological ability to render harm on us to the extreme. Ten well place nukes and a well coordinated attack involving blood agents and the western world could topple.

"from your answer i see that your military service did not affect you in the same way it did myself"

It affected me in all the right ways.

"you said it...i didn't."

And I stand by it. Saving a book is more important than saving cloth.

kendall, i have been thinking about your concern regarding loss of batteries or any energy source in which to power the current or even future technology. it would seem to me that should such a catastrophic event occur, powering up a computer may be the least of our immediate concerns or even the safety of a copy of time or even ...gasp...the national enquirer. although the national enquirer is an entertaining and salacious read sometimes. your statement concerning war has been a contentious one in my mind. i contend that we have not actually fought a "war" since the second world war. i may be wrong depending on one's definition of war, but the rest of the conflicts in my opinion have been more akin to police actions or economic/political actions. currently it seems that we are the cat that refuses to kill the mouse. we simply toy and play with the problem until the problem fights back. then we go into political correctness denial. much hand-wringing and indecisiveness. gott

kendall, i have eaten many things but crow is not one that i wish to consume now. thank you for the offer though. from your answer i see that your military service did not affect you in the same way it did myself. that is a shame. sometimes the same occurs with a stint in prison. in addition, i never said that you desecrated the flag. your stated willingness and intent and that was all i was commenting on. you said it...i didn't. sure sitting on the sidelines is the same as being in the game...i know...i know. evryones a citizen blah...blah... blah. everybody wins. so now you know where i stand and i know where you stand. thank you for your service to this country. i appreciate what you did.

Back on the "blind nationalism", yes..it exists. Whenever someone thinks the US is correct just because we are the US...then that is blind nationalism. We are one of the greatest and most powerful nations that has ever existed..but we are not infallible. We have lost wars and made many mistakes along the way. I like to think we have done some good in our time and will continue to but I have no problem with pointing out when we have screwed up.

My pessimistic side tells me that batteries eventually die out. And even with such things, the everyday person would suffer terribly.

Deep down I hope we would never have to worry about such a thing like the loss of so much of our culture and knowledge but if there was a sudden rise in militantism from Asia and a decline of power in the West, then it is quite possible that a world war could destroy much of our information.

Spc (E-4), ANG, 12B10, trained at Fort Leonard Wood..dreadful place in the winter mind you. Would you like to eat your crow now or later?

I've never desecrated the flag. I merely stated what I would do if the situation came about.

Also, having been in the service of one's country does not make them more of a citizen than someone that has not. I took a lot out of my time in the military but in no way does that make the flag mean anything more to me than what it is, merely a symbol and nothing more.

along with the intelligence associated with the digital age, it would be hopeful that someone would be mindful and have a substantial battery back-up system.

personally there is no "blind nationalism" for me. maybe for you, but not for me and thousands of others that have fought under that flag that you would so easily desecrate. quite possibly if you were vested in this country you would have a different outlook. in the meantime, you may consider it polite to just say thank you to those that have afforded you the luxury of free thought and expression.....you are welcome in advance.

I am leery of our digital age. It offers us up some great advantages over that of our ancestors. But I worry that a modern day equivalent of the burning of the Library of Alexandria could happen. Imagine if suddenly the power simply went off and never came back on. We would lose so much of our knowledge.
