 You have one thing right in that above paragraph: I don't believe in anything. - Believing is for stupid people.People with brains know, don't know, hypothesize, theorize, conjecture, deliberate, but they don't "believe", because that entails accepting as true something of which you should know that you don't have sufficient evidence to prove it or know it; and only stupid people would do such a thing. Among the things I don't believe in, is loyalty to any concept that...
 Austria != Australia ;) No kangaroos in Austria.
 Interesting how you know my political affiliations........and manage to be totally wrong.Which means you probably decided based on truthiness, aka Bush's "gut feeling". No, I'm not a Democrat (with capital D) although I'm a democrat (with lower-case d). The closest I come to being a Democrat is that I consider the Tea Party wing of the Republicans, which holds the entire party by its balls, to be a bunch of lunatics, meaning that the Republican party, as it exists today,...
 Here's the biggest lie exposed: that one chooses the channel according to one's party affiliation.No, I choose channels according to whether or not something is good journalism, and yes, there is something like standards of journalism, it's not all relativistic and just a matter of whether or not one agrees with the editorial page.Good journalism separates the news from the commentary, Fox routinely mixes the two, presents conjectures as if it were fact, etc.Fox has just...
The sad part is, this dude likely even believes this drivel he writes to be true.Chances are, he also believes in virgin births, intelligent design, dinosaurs and humans roaming together in paradise only a few thousand years ago, and that Jesus was a white boy speaking English......and certainly he believes in American exceptionalism, that USA is #1 regardless how far it is trailing large parts of the developed world, and other nonsense.That's the result of living in the...

Whether FOX is left or right doesn't matter. What matters is them making up news that are not true.Second, ABC, NBC, MSNBC, CNN, PBS are not left, certainly not very left, they are barely center. Thanks to the hijacking of the definition of what's left and right by the extreme right in the US, people have no idea what's left and right in the US. Obama is considerably to the right of e.g. Germany's conservative-right party of chancellor Angela Merkel. Obamacare is a...
 All these "don't sit close to the television" phrases originate from the time of CRTs which would produce X-ray and other nasty radiation that at close distance could be potentially harmfully strong. These reasons don't apply to modern LED backlit LCD screens. Of course, LCD screens, regardless of size, can still harm your vision if their backlighting and contrast aren't properly adjusted for the viewing environment, but that's no different than staring at a very brightly...
It obvious that the most "red blooded" American news/propaganda outlet would follow the old American mantra: "mo biggah is beddah" That matches just about with the average IQ of the Fox viewership, they can't handle more complex thought than fit into a single tweet, and certainly not more than four at any given time. It's just show, that's all there is to it, a few minutes of ads pays for this stuff, so who cares.
 Any sentient being and any organization run by such has a moral obligation. Nobody can hide behind the law.If a law is unjust, it is to be ignored and disobeyed. He who doesn't can be held accountable not just by history, but also by the courts.There are very few huge injustices committed in this world that are not "legal" or even "mandated", but that doesn't make them less unjust, and sooner or later the hammer of justice will come down on those who collaborated or...
