“Nobody is asking for a debate from anyone, that's a creation of our "wonderful" media corporations for a rating bump. The debate has ended and the FACTS are in. Climate change is real and humans have had a hand in causing it. Wouldn't it be nice for the media to report that, explain that, the cause and effect and perhaps ways to deal with it? No, instead they set up the phoney "debate", the pro and con. News should be FACTS not debates!”
“She's African American and according to the picture above, she already has the blond dye job...it really must be a prerequisite!”

“Her ancestors are from Africa, Barbados and Mexico, but she is just an American. Why do you choose to diminish her mixed ancestry?
Charlize Theron is actually African-American, but I wonder if you've ever referred to her as such?”
“That entire Washington weekend (dinner and parties) is as out of touch as David Gregory. Politicians playing wannabe with celebrities ... " take my picture, sign an autograph please". It's offensive that they're celebrating ...what? Surely not running the country well and I mean BOTH parties. However, David Gregory couldn't gush enough about it. The dance he did onstage with Karl Rove a few years back pretty much says it all. Gregory is part of the problem with journalism...can't hold feet to the fire. Again, on BOTH sides. Party on America!”
“As a member of the media, I'd like to suggest-Go back to being what NEWS IS: FACTS! With that in mind, you don't bring on a "Pro" and a "Con" every week on the panel (and of course in equal number!) because obviously one person has the FACT, the other doesn't. Everything is not pro or con. 98 percent of all scientists agree that there is climate change so why would MTP make it a 50/50 discussion? Answer: to create conflict believing that grabs ratings. It doesn't on MTP, it's not why people tune in.
MEET THE PRESS means delivering the honest facts and latest news, holding feet to the fire. To improve the show, you need a host who can do that (Gregory never has) and producers that don't try to create a "news reality" show by staging fake conflict.”
“Blame the "government is bad" crowd. Loosen regulations and look the other way is what they want. So, you have an FCC who can't regulate, and EPA that can't protect the environment (lot of spills and contamination in water supplies lately) and god knows our food isn't being monitored like it once was. Keep cutting and this is what you get...an unregulated country where anything goes, big business runs it and your food, safety and services all deteriorate. Just look around, it's everywhere.”
“They came from South America. Perhaps our EPA & FDA should do a better job screening shipments from overseas. Of course, many "brilliant" Americans believe in de-funding the government agencies. Who needs them, just spray everything with more pesticide (which BTW seeps in, can't wash it all off). Seriously, you'll voluntarily choose bug spray over organic?”
“Explain exactly how something is LEFT wing and not RIGHT wing. Please help us keep our wings apart and distinct.Then let us know if it's a HAWK wing or a DOVE wing and if any wing will be used at the wing bowl besides chicken wings. WING WING...there's the phone...”
“So lucky to have the internet where everyone can play Sherlock Holmes and solve all the worlds problems. Amazing how everyone has so much time to speculate without facts or better yet, state the obvious. Now, lets all get back to something productive. Hug your kids...and try not to post that you've just hugged your kids.”
“To answer the first sentence, people were dropped for having cheap, ineffective policies with terrible coverage. There are standards now. You might say, "but it's their choice to get a crappy policy" but if something should happen to them...WE, the taxpayers pick up the bill for emergency room treatment. For health coverage to work properly, everyone needs a good policy with good coverage. If you can't afford one, Obama care will help you.”
