Yay for us, we're number 32!!!

I can hear the cheerleaders cheering at the local high school.

We're much worse than Andorra(#5), and I'd have to google that, just to find out where it is.

We do get more Alex Jones and Glenn Beck though.

That sucks for the US, but maybe seeing Venezuela at 117 will temper some of that Chavez love.

I'm sure you're very proud of that.

Can you hear the cheerleaders too?

It's also pretty troubling when countries like Namibia, Ghana, and Surinam have us beat.

I've been trying to say we need to re-institute the fairness doctrine.

But I mostly get flipped off, while the flippers go off to watch FLAKESnews and bitch about "lamestream" media.

With further consolidation, it's only going to get lamer.

Anyone who would flip you off for that doesn't understand the concept. Or they're not old enough to actually remember when the news was actually news, instead of entertainment and propaganda.

It was a figure of speech..............:)

But you got the meaning, I think.

Fleshing out AP press releases aren't the end of doing a job of reporting

I'll have to stop taking you so literally.

And, yep, with further consolidation it's certainly going to get worse.

There ought to be a law . . .

Oh wait, what am I thinking?

Freedom is a brassiere!!!!

Damn my penis. I can never be truly free....................:)

Don't take that too literally.

Welp..........we got that much freedom of the press.

Heheheh.

Damn, you do have a sense of humor.

[-] 1 points by shoozTroll (17632) 1 year ago

I can't wait to point this out to the libe(R)tarians.

After all, it's freedom of speech.

Freedom is nothing but a bra..........LOL

And liberty is a cheesy Jeep.

Where and what, is the State initiative in Michigan and who is backing it?

Congress is corrupted mostly by stonewalling teabage(R)s and (R)epeilican't/libe(R)tarians.

So I don't know what to say about a site with NO "about" link, that doesn't seem to realize, that that is the case.

So just please tell me what and where I can find this State initiative in Michigan.

thanks for asking.

right now me, GypsyKing, and Brad B, MiddleAge I think.

If you can tolerate working in the system (I know it sucks, is sleazy) in my state Washington, any citizen can file a initiative for voters to vote on to become law of the state. I will be looking, if I can't get my state legislators, in house and senate to sponsor this, or another legislator, to run a petition for this amendment)

so its a long shot. dirty and long. but we can meet and talk to a lot of

folks, maybe get enough to come to ows sight and get to be a majority

of free thinkers.

I also sent link to my local occupy, so I'll work with them too on it. But

I've been helping my daughter...with grandson so she can work, in my

spare time, need to get out more in the street with my ows

Tacoma/Seattle/Olympia/Vancouver people see who else is on board.

Read the site. it has good ideas and info.

it has plan, documents, ready to go, just needs people to make it happen
