    There's 318 pages of Ailes' files there. I'm surprised you two were able to come to a conclusion before me, considering that I supplied all this.

    Anyway, I'm finding plenty of disturbing stuff....

    The memo itself is unattributed. The comments in the margins are undoubtedly from Ailes (signed "Roger"). Also, you'll note that the network called TVN actually did get off the ground, so there's...

    I like that snippet from the Post.

    I'd like to stress that there's a difference between asserting that the US is "exceptional" and American exceptionalism. Like you said, we're all annoyed by an...
  4. Roger Ailes’ Secret Nixon-Era Blueprint for Fox News

    Much more here. Definitely take a look if interested. Copy of the memo with Ailes' notes and a nice summary included.

    And a Rolling Stone article, How Roger Ailes Built the Fox News Fear Factory...

    Ah, a nice helping of bigotry and hate from the Bachmann clan. I stand by my statements about Candidate Screwloose. Let's hope she's a nonfactor by the time this election gets...

    That's what happened to the indigenous peoples of the Americas. Although there was a striking amount of slaughter, most of the 70 million odd deaths came from disease.

    All these reviews and evaluations cost money. Lots and lots of money. And time.

    Spending money upfront to streamline often makes good sense financially. So I'm not necessarily putting down your...

    The tribe is from Papua New Guinea ... nowhere near Africa. The video is from 1976. It's legit from everything I've ever read.

    There are many tribes that have had very limited contact with the...

    Children who don't believe in a god and/or have parents who don't believe in a god. Muslim children who pray to "Allah" and children of non-Christian faiths (where "God" is a rarely-used term) are...

    It still has meaning to the children it marginalizes.

    And when NBC forgot/omitted a little part of the Pledge a couple weeks ago, there sure were a lot of people rabbling over something so...

    Speaking of political agendas fed to children, I think we all remember this little bit:

    Good man.


    That seems to be a pretty damning case ... from 1935. I haven't seen the media turn up any other case law, though.

    A nice quick point from Slate.com HERE ... with a glimpse at...

    That Fourteenth Amendment language doesn't bode well for the debt limit. I don't know the case law, though, and I trust cab that it's not exactly settled.

    JJ was going to want bank after this year. Casspi is solid and a wing, which the Cavs need desperately right now. The pick will be mid-teens somewhere along the line.

    All in all, a decent trade...

    Pretty sure I didn't. You'll have to explain.



    That's the thing ... It's not a defense. It's a reminder that he's just a comedian and that people shouldn't take his show so seriously.

    Satire. The author goes on to complain that the cars don't show signs of natural selection, which is pretty damn nonsensical.

    Agreed on all accounts. So if that's Stewart's company, I really don't understand the concern. Well, I do, but I don't understand the bogus justifications of that concern.

    What does "anti-capitalist" mean? That's two instances now. Seem like some seriously trumped up charges there ... I haven't seen too many kids' films spreading Marxist ideals lately.
