    If you want to form an objective opinion of anything political in America, I would recommend against listening to the right or left wing talking heads on TV. i.e.

    Bill O'Rielly
    Glenn Beck.....Right Wing

    Keith Oberman
    Rachel Maddow...Left wing

    Despite what these 4 people tell you, this is NOT fair and balanced reporting. These people are paid to push an agenda. They sling as much political mud at the other side as possible, while being blind to the faults of the side they represent.

    An idea one may wish to consider (while not perfect) is to decide which direction you want your City, State, and Country to go in issues such as health care, national security, the economy etc. then research how your lawmakers voted regarding these issues. This would be a better approach than letting a group of talking heads on TV make up your mind for you regarding who to vote for.

    In other news, the Earth is round, outer space is big and people don't go to Hooters for the food.






    I'm sorry, I just couldn't help myself.

    I agree with you, of course.

    But Keith Olbermann and Rachel Maddow are better than O'Reilly, Beck, Limbaugh, or Hannity, right?








    Right?









    I don't hear you assenting.

    Thank You...and you are correct about Hooters, (although the burgers are not bad!)

    Isn't it a nice feeling when extremists attack you for being too centrist?

    Yes...it is. But also a little sad. One would think in our information age the extremists would learn that there views will never fly with the majority of voters. Oh well, life goes on.
