So, how about that good old Orwellian "Ministry of Truth" ?

Read all about the "Multi-Market Study of Critical Information Needs" being done by the FCC.

They are actually going to install Thought Police in newsrooms, to make sure they address "bias" and "diversity" type issues. They're even going to do this in *newspaper* newsrooms, where the FCC doesn't actually have any authority.

Chilling effects, anyone?

Apparently, the FCC is postponing its study, due to an outcry.

If the government is truly that worried about the way the news is covered, as in, not enough diversity, it should make greater efforts to break up the news medias into smaller companies, no?

The media companies donate too much to political campaigns. Besides Comcast would never be allowed to grow the
way it did and the way it wants to if it didn't donate heavy to the Obama campaign.

They've already got enough backing from White House spokesperson Jimmy Fallon.

It is amazing if you have little talent and are not funny but you promote the Obamas you can get the Tonight
Show gig. You make fun of all politicians and the Obamas you lose the Tonight Show gig.

Senior Airman Ret. Brian Kolfage vented his feelings to President Obama in a strongly worded letter that doesn.t mince words:

Dear President Obama,

My name is Brian Kolfage, I.m a triple amputee and retired Air Force veteran who was severely wounded on September 11, 2004 in Iraq.

I nearly died in a war that most of your colleagues supported overwhelmingly, including the two presidents who came before you. Many citizens may not agree with waging war in Iraq to free the oppressed Iraqi citizens, but it.s something that warriors like myself have no control over. I joined to serve my country and to better my life. seen things that you could never imagine, and they have made me the person I am today.

Mr. Obama, even though we have extreme opposite views, we have one thing in common, we both attended school in Hawaii. However, that.s where the similarities end. You see, as you attended your exclusive, private school, I would ride my bike to Kaimuki High School in one of the roughest areas in Hawaii. Every morning I would ride past Punahou, the exclusive private school you attended and I would notice all of the Bentleys, Maseratis, and fancy foreign cars that all the kids were dropped off in; wow it must have been extremely rough in Hawaii living that life, right? I could only imagine what it was like to have that kind of money. Fortunately for you, not many people are aware of the school that you and the upper class citizens of Hawaii attended. The tuition to attend your exclusive, private school was more than it cost me to obtain a Bachelor.s degree in Architecture from the University of Arizona. You talk a big game when it comes to financial inequality, yet I.m quite sure you have no idea what it.s truly like to have to sacrifice. You were one of the elitist children in Hawaii.

After High School, we each chose very different paths. You were able to attend America.s finest Ivy League schools, while I pursued a career in the military, in hopes of earning a degree. What we have in life as children usually helps to set the tone for how we acheive success later in life. I worked to get where I am today, while it was HANDED TO YOU..Mr. Inequality.

I volunteered to go to Iraq on both of my deployments, and the second time I begged to go even after I wasn.t selected. During that second deployment, I was ultimately placed on the team where I would lose both legs and my dominant arm. Even though many Americans were against the war in Iraq, never asked myself if it was worth it after losing 3 of my limbs.

I am frequently reminded of the many young Iraqi children who would beg me for water, food, and toys while I was stationed in Iraq. Children, who in all aspects made the poorest of poor American children look rich. You have no idea what it really means to be poor. It.s laughable that you, who would have no idea what it means to be poor would so frequently play the inequality card.

While I was in Iraq, our mission was to liberate the Iraqi citizens from a tyrant and that.s what we did. Never forget, it was your people who sent us there, like the Clintons, John Kerry, Nancy Pelosi & Carl Levin. However, since the day you busted onto the scene been talking about ending the war and pulling the troops out, not understanding the blood sweat and tears that so many Americans and Iraqi.s invested. And with complete disregard for every life sacrificed, every limb lost, and every broken family, you bailed on our mission to pursue an agenda that was completely centered on your re-election in 2012. If you didn.t bail on Iraq you were worried that you may not get re-elected and that.s a fact. Just before elections on Oct 11, 2012 you said .Al Qaeda is on the run and Osama bin Laden is dead.. Look at Iraq now, they are in shambles and the Al Qaeda flag is flying freely. Clearly, unfit for duty as a Commander in Chief. You put your own agenda ahead of America.s agenda, and now you have single handedly ruined and destroyed nearly everything we gained in Iraq. It clearly means nothing to you, because the only thing that personally invested in that country was a promise to bail on them. However, people like me gave limbs, friends have died, and watched families destroyed by war.s aftermath.

I.m not placing blame on you for the war, I.m placing blame on you for destroying what worked so hard to build. not a leader, a community organizer. A leader would have stood up regardless of the situation and put America.s agenda first and that is ensuring a secure Iraq even after 10 years of war. But, you placed Barack first, just as Robert Gates confirmed in his new book. I can.t help but think of those poor kids who I gave water and toys to 11 years ago. probably 15 or 16 years old now, and I can only imagine what it.s like for them to have their nation being torn apart yet again; all because of your poor leadership qualities. Regardless of why we went to Iraq, its water under the bridge. We went there, we waged war, and we not only owed it to our KIA.s but we owed it to the citizens of Iraq. We invaded their country and turned it upside down, and you bailed on them. You bailed on our soldiers and wasted every death and every limb, it.s all for nothing. And to make matters worse you blame others for your failures just another elitist rich thug who.s pretended to live the rough life growing up in the inner-city. only worried about your own agenda and furthering your party instead of taking care of Americans. Your inability to be a leader at some of the most critical points has caused both of our wars to fail. been a joke to most of our veteran community and we have no faith in your ability to lead.

Every bit is true, but what difference does it make? Obama doesn't care what our soldiers think of him. He has a pen.

The Second Amendment *does* make "suck[ing] it up" quite a bit more tolerable. It just tells "them" that there is a line and they dare not cross it.

They aren't crossing the line; they are very slowly erasing it.

Hey everyone. Just wanted to point out that Sheryl Sandberg is a bossy bitch.
It seems appropriate that her complete lack of leadership skills is so profound that she could only manage to get a job working at Facebook.

The thing that bitchy bossy bitches like Sheryl Sandberg don't understand is that "bossy" is a pejorative for a reason. Anyone can be a boss; not everyone can be a leader. The word "bossy" means that the person is perceived as someone who just likes to bark out orders but does not have true leadership skills.

Yes I know I'm the last one to actually chime in on this subject but this post constitutes the final word on the subject. And it also proves that Facebook needs to be shut down for the good of the universe.

Wait wait wait... I thought we were trying to stop using the word "boddy" because like bullying the word bossy
hurts people.

I figured you IG would be all over this the way you are all over bullying.

Ha! I saw but didn't read an article on that the other day and didn't realize it was started by the bossy bitch
herself. I didn't get the joke until I looked up the article, made my post here, and then read past the first
paragraph of the article.

Still IG bossy and bullying go together.

There's a big difference between being assertive and being bossy.

There's a big difference between being a bully and being a bossy bitch.

And let's be honest here, we all know what happens when you "ban a word" -- you give it POWER. And then it becomes even more of a problem because people know it has power and it gets wielded as a weapon by people on both sides of any debate.

The correct approach is to *embrace* a word which takes away its power to be used as a cudgel that people can be beaten with. Look at what the gay community did by embracing the word "queer," for example. Imagine how much better the world would be if the black community had done the same with "nigger."

Yes. A bully is a male who kicks your ass or hurts your feelings, a bossy bitch is when a female kicks or hurts
the feelings of your pansy ass.

I beg to differ. Just in the last few hours I have had the non-pleasure of dealing with a bossy bitch who is male.
