    Really, Mr DLC/NAFTA/Welfare Reform was trying to help — I wonder in what way?

    David Dayen: “I was under the impression that Hamas did call for a cease-fire, but the situation was heading toward an escalation with Israel prior to that.”

    I don’t understand the point you are trying to make? It would have been helpful if you could have expanded on what you were trying to say?

    FT Article: “..Benjamin Netanyahu, the Israeli prime minister, issued a sharp warning to Hamas and other groups. “The attack on the children’s bus was crossing a red line. Heaven help those who try to hurt and murder children*” he said…”

    *Do you mean the hypocriscy of it all? Netanyahu”: “Heaven help those who try to hurt and murder children…” Except when it comes to Israeli’s killing Palestinian kids”. I mean where’s the justice then? Is that the point you were trying to make?

    Or Hillary’s secret war? It would be nice if Jeremy Scahill chirps in and gives us his take?

    Except Rachel is “paid” by corporate media — I’m not. So when I see: — Democratic Party support of Blanche Lincoln (anti-union) — Dropping and running away from the Employee Free Choice Act — Using the extension of Unemployment benefit as a hand-wringing exercise. Most intelligent Democrats would use this as “a connect the dots exercise” [...]

    Yeah, I know it’s ultimately a ‘show’ to peck at the Republicans — It’s just so frustratingly shallow.

    And what about the Democrats? Are they Angels then? So, when Obama gave a huge tax-break to the rich — did she go after and research the lobbyists and individuals that definitely existed that were able to pay-off the Democrats?

    Entertainment… In fact didn’t Bill Moyers talk about the Corporate Media before he retired — that “Corporate media colludes with democracy’s demise” poof and then he was gone.

    I didn’t say there was ‘anybody’ — that’s why many of us call it the “Corporate Media”. . Entertaining parading as news to try and affect your thinking, to define your box. When you watch news programs in Canada (e.g. 5th Estate) and Europe (e.g. Newsnight) you would see the vast difference in what you are literally [...]

    …That’s the problem — most of us here are not half-witted — and have not fallen into the trap of bitching for the sake of bitching when the likes of Palin, or Beck is dangled day in and night out in front of our faces. Maddow often provides that fake and fluff news, except she’s trying [...]

    “…a whole organization set up to achieve those ends. It’s called the DEMOCRATIC PARTY…”

    You sound like a fanatic football fan — with an allegiance to a team/a brand until you die — regardless of fact that its ‘players change teams’ all the time, and the ‘game’ itself evolving over time.

    “…you lose a portion of the population once you frame it as battle between political parties…that’s exactly what the Corporations and ruling class elites want,…”

    Your message right there — I was in agreement with.

    Agreed.

    Republicans this time are playing the “bad” cops and the Dems are playing the “good” cop — but when the Corporate agenda is jeopardy the Corporate hacks from both sides of the aisle — get into line. As we have seen time and time again.
