You hit the nail on the head right there, and don't stop at fox news either. I'd throw all media under that bus. It seems that fair, unbiased reporting is long gone and that every single news organization has some sort of agenda they're trying to ram down your throat. I get so frustrated by it sometimes that I can't even see straight. What's worse is that everybody seems to have the strongest opinion but none have the first hint of a desire to actually educate themselves. They hear what they want and then make up facts to support it.
I can't stand having a debate with most people anymore because of their ignorance, AND I CAN'T STAND IGNORANCE
. What's worse is when they become chauvinistic, disrespectful, and sometimes aggressive. I'm thankful for the little bit of patience that I have, because if it wasn't for it, I know I'd be in jail.
Anyways, now that the thread is completely derailed and a smoldering ruin, Thanks for the story Big Paul and Jolly Roger.
