“" . . . there's a huge learning experience when something is basically 'in your face' . . . "

You mean when you're watching television? Hmmmmm . . .”

“Yes, or the Net, point being getting lulled into complacence is far deadlier than violence itself. It makes us unprepared & in a state of denial. Not necessarily saying be armed, but be aware. Had I not watched TV, I'd never known I was in an evacuation zone for Hurrucane Sandy. TV saved my life!”

“Well, I'm not exactly living in a cave! ;-) I do get out and go to work, interact with my co-workers, go to my volunteer gigs and interact with those people, read books and interact with my book-club members, watch documentaries and discuss them with learned friends, go to public lectures at my local university, and on and on,

And Ursula is right--I always have the internet . . .

I'm just saying there are a number of (IMHO) much better ways FOR ME to inform myself than plugging into the sensationalist mainstream media (meaning commercial and cable television "news" programs and local and national newspapers).”

“The examples you gave were within a fairly controlled environment: your interests, hobbies, personal life. I found out there's a huge learning experience when something is basically " in your face" that gets needed messages across like no other way possible.”

“I stopped watching television and reading newspapers a couple of years ago. I still catch an occasional news article on the internet (obviously!), but, other than that, I'm "media free." I find myself much less anxious--much less feeling like a potential victim 24/7, or imagining "what a horrible world we live in today" or whatever.

So you can definitely take control of how much you're exposed to news media. Try it as an experiment for, say, a month. Maybe you'll see how pointless it is to be constantly bombarded with all the murder and mayhem!”

“You misunderstood me, somehow you took my "eliminate
poverty" to mean eliminate the poor themselves, which is your great
misreading of my comment. Is it Christian to rob Peter to pay Paul an then to
keep the cycle going every year with no elimination of the problem all the
while the money supply is inflated in order to pay for more and more programs,
which raises all prices and hurts the poor even more as their limited and restricted
incomes fall in real purchasing power as the value of the money drops as also
their savings is eaten away by the same process. Eventually you shove the poor
on a hamster’s wheel that they cannot get off of. The poor, retired people,
anyone on a fixed income is robbed and debauched by the welfare states very programs.
And in this gap the churches have to more and more rush in to feed a problem created
by the states assistance. To love the poor is to work to dismantle the very system
that impoverishes them.”

“Oh, so poverty and homelessness should be put on fiscal life support and kept around forever? Eliminating poverty is the only solution to this problem, but doing so would leave xians with nothing to do wouldn’t it? So yeah, let’s keep people poor so you can feel good feeding them? I have a better solution, why don’t you burn your bibles in the industrial cans so you can keep them warm, that would accomplish two goals at once. Keep them warm and eliminate the world’s number one source of adult retardation.”

“The Muslim faith prohibits images of Mohammad. So, no, I doubt "Huffers" and the other leftist media (which you happen to be reading) will support it.

Haven't you heard about all the problems that have developed around the globe concerning images of Mohammad in the last decade or so? Or don't your right-wing news sources report on that?”

“I live in a blood-red state and work for the State government there. All Republican, all the time.

After 30 years on staff, I earn five weeks of vacation and have accrued over 2300 hours of sick leave, which I never lose. (Yes, folks, I could be sick for over 13 months with full pay.) I will be paid for all vacation and 25% of the sick leave when I retire.

Believe me, nothing Democratic about it in this state.”

John Genryu on Mar 30, 2013 at 22:50:03

“"After 30 years on staff, I earn five weeks of vacation." That's a little sad. Three or four weeks is generally the norm in the most prosperous countries in the world, such as Denmark, Switzerland and Norway, rising every year. In most such countries, which have economies that are far more prosperous than that of the US, you would be on at least eight weeks paid holiday a year by now and paid sick leave has long been a given.”
