« on: January 02, 2012, 06:40:48 PM »
Hi all!  Happy 2012.

The New Year is upon us and since the 2011 does not stay changed in the title of the previous thread, I am opening up a new thread for 2012.

Same rules apply.
News and current events discussions.
Be neighborly to one another!!

Sorry guys, one more depressing video:

The highly influential Council on Foreign Relations (aka CFR) declared this month in their online publication "Foreign Affairs" that it is now time to attack Iran.

Good another war we cannot pay for. And to pay for this one, we'll take away your SS and your Medicare. While the 1% can sit back and make loads of money.

Oh joy (not) - Rupert Murdoch is tweeting.

Apparently he likes Santorum.  



from the article:

Quote
“Good to see santorum surging in Iowa,” Murdoch wrote on January 1st. “Regardless of policies, all debates showed principles, consistency and humility like no other.” The following day, he followed up with another message: “Can’t resist this tweet, but all Iowans think about Rick Santorum. Only candidate with genuine big vision for country.”

It isn’t every day that the Lord Almighty descends from the heavens and offers running commentary to the masses. (January 2nd: “NY cold and empty, even central park. Nice!”)

I don't know who would be interested in Rupert Murdoch's tweets, other than journalists who work for the papers he owns.   ::)

It will be interesting to trace how much money or air-time Murdoch places at Santorum's disposal.

The Iowa results will be interesting. They look such a group of no-hopers from this side of the pond.
