    While CNN does a credible job in reporting the news....I personally find the "Gavel to gavel" coverage of the ludicrous Arias trial a low point in news journalism!

      If you think Completely Not News does a credible job you need to pull your head out of your own butt. CNN is so liberaly biased and pro Obama that you have no clue that his administration is " fundementally destroying" America while he " hopes he can empty all the change from your pockets". CNN refuses to report the negative effects caused by Obama and if the do they mislead you by artificially deflating the unemployment numbers by refusing to count the depressed man who has to move into mom's basement because after spending a fortune on a useless education he can't even get a job at McDonalds.

    To give you credit though I can't completely agree with@Portland tony.
    The coverage of our main stream media including CNN has always been tilted towards promoting agenda of powers that be.

    you know@Hamsta. His tirade against Pr.Obama stems from a deep seated rejection.

      Oh, I know, saywhat. I'll print the defition of socialism again, so he knows what not to compare the US to.

      1. a theory or system of social organization that advocates the vesting of the ownership and control of the means of production and distribution, of capital, land, etc., in the community as a whole.
      2. procedure or practice in accordance with this theory.

      The United States isn't a socialist country, no matter how much Alex Jones and Fox News tries to imply it is.
      Of course, everyone knows that our social programs have been in place for decades, but it is unlikely that this poster will ever get that memo.

    Once upon a time the government had a vast scrap yard in the middle of a desert.

    Congress said,"Someone may steal from it at night." So they created a night watchman position and hired a person for the job.

    Then Congress said,"How does the watchman do his job without instruction?" So they created a planning department and hired two people, one person to write the instructions, and one person to do time studies.

    Then Congress said,"How will we know the night watchman is doing the tasks correctly?" So they created a Quality Control department and hired two people. One to do the studies and one to write the reports.

    Then Congress said,"How are these people going to get paid?" So they created the following positions, a time keeper, and a payroll officer, then hired two people.

    Then Congress said,"Who will be accountable for all of these people?" So they created an administrative section and hired three people, an Administrative Officer, Assistant Administrative Officer, and a Legal Secretary.

    Then Congress said,"We have had this command in operation for one year and we are $18,000 over budget, we must cutback overall cost." So they laid off the night watchman.

      Thank you Bobcat for describing the socialist takeover of the healthcare industry known as Obamacare. Banasy works in a library with all the information in front of her but needs me to give her a "citation". I've given her many citations in the past but some reason her brain can't assemble them.

      I put that especially for you. I knew that you above all others would align with it. It fits right into your rants.
