Alternet propaganda .... garbage in garbage out ....

Our aim is to stimulate, inform, and instigate.

I respectfully disagree Northern. One thing about Alternet, their sources are good and you can always double check on the 'net for confirmation.

In fact, as an example of Alternet's truth in reporting...they've mentioned Obama's role and involvement in picking the bi-partisan group to dissolve Social Security. In fact, they've done a number of articles on that subject.

I figured, the way they present their "news", their shareholders would not favor intelligent debate.

Very interesting.....

Now what would happen if this stockholder started pushing to get Al Jazeera on Fox News, so that it would be truly balanced and fair, representing 'both' sides?

I wonder what would happen?

Old man Fox must be turning over in his grave. All the old Jewish gentleman ever wanted to do was make movies to entertain people.

Wealthy Oil rich Arabs (a.k.a. latent Bedouins) and the real Semitics (?) are investing in properties world wide knowing their Oil Boom is Doomed.
For decades they have used electric powered domestic utility vehicles to cut down pollution and noise.
They are ahead of the Chinese in owning many once prestigious properties and wherever they can place their money other than their oil.
The quicker we go to alternative non-polluting fuels (Solar Power) the better and healthier we'll all become.

Hypocrisy knows no religion, ethnicity, nationality, color or sexual orientation... just like stupidity. They are just the tools the hypocrites use to take advantage of the stupid.

I for sure am not a fox fan but, we all need to fact check on our own regarding issues and not listen to fox or any other news network OR our politicians for that matter.

This is almost funny...Those crazy ass people who Rant and Rave, about Islam, and Muslim's and terrorist's, actually work for some people who they try to make into the Devil every day...The irony, in this makes me smile...lol I wonder where is the outrage, and the foaming of the mouth from these people now?

I have wondered when people were going to talk about this. An honest to goodness Terrorist is the 2nd most powerful shareholder of Sean, Bill O. and the other right wingers at FOX. For all we know Mr. Bin Laden may demand equal air time for all his friends and neighbors. What a sad bunch that is at the No News Network.

We need to reach 500,000 individual signatures on the

FIGHT WASHINGTON CORRUPTION PLEDGE

We're only 9,000 signatures away.

Can you ask someone you know to sign the pledge right now?

Send them to: 
 http://www.fightwashingtoncorruption.com/


There is more information on the website. You can see which members of Congress have signed the pledge and watch the counter on the page as we reach our goal.

Please disseminate this widely! Thanks.

Don't ya just love it! Also to be noted is that the same Saudi Prince is also one of the major monies in CHASE BANK, aside from wondering just how much US taxpayer dollars he pocketed from the Bush Bailout. Any one fancy a change of banks?

This is so funny, my first reaction is to laugh. The reality is the American neo-liberal policies are in place and oil is a part of that reality. It isn't unusual that the Saudi government wanted the invasion of Iran back in 2007. The geopolitical struggle goes on and politics seems to be a game for which the public are outsiders and the reality is within the power struggles that are taking place within the world scene. That is, the Islamic community center in NYC, that is an old Bulington Coat store and two blocks away from the 9/11 ground zero site, is just controversy created to confuse us and further divide the American people. The scourge continues!
