    2001: Bush looks Putin in the eyes- "sees his soul". 2006- Russia invades Georgia. 2008- Obama meets with Putin. "An excellent opportunity to put Russian/ US relations on a new footing." 2014- Russia enters Ukraine, annexes Crimea.

    A bit misleading. According to the article, all the top five meat and dairy and poultry producers don't put out as much CO2 as all the energy companies combined- only all the meat producers produce more than the individual energy companies. Also says "within the next few decades" while headline says they do so now. Headline: First line of article: But it is zerohedge which likes to sensationalize.

    Trump used to complain that Janet Yellen was keeping interest rates too low. Now he is complaining that they are too high. His Federal Reserve Board nominees have not been big "easy money" backers (they are actually more "middle of the road")

    Agreed. I do continue to wonder who the real target is here. The people that threw the shit, or the people that had the shit thrown at them. Im thinking that by normalizing throwing shit, they are trying to tell people something else by reading between the lines: "If you do not support Immigration, then shut the fuck up or you will have shit thrown at you". That is rather worrisome if that is the real objective. Making people afraid to express Political Opinions due to threat of retaliation is a rather dangerous outcome.

    They also have to pay for all that $ billion scanning equipment. Even if they rarely get used (some of them) each hospital wants its own instead of agreeing to share one (and lower their costs). Then you have all that paperwork. https://www.commonwealthfund.org/publications/journal-article/2014/sep/comparison-hospital-administrative-costs-eight-nations-us

    Not really about you changing the labels, but the way it was originally presented. I think it is more about trying to Normalize behaviors of irresponsible people by presenting the information in such a way as to cause a bias. We cant really know who threw the dung, but what is more important is how the information is presented. By changing the Labels, perceptions shift dramatically. Lets try some scenarios. First scenario: the Poo Throwers were Illegal Immigrants. Then the headline would have read "Illegal Immigrants Throw Poo at people for not being Pro Illegal Immigration". How does that change peoples perspective of the situation? Second scenario, the Shit Hurlers are whitey rich college students. Headline would then read "White College Students Hurl Shit at people that are not Pro Immigration". Does the bias alter the perception of the people who are Anti Immigration, or the College Students? Scenario Three: forget the topic of contention. Headline might then read "Shit Thrown at a Business over Political Disagreement". It makes the subject very vague as well as the points of view of both parties. Not interesting enough to be sensational as little is known about either side. Next, as stated, it Normalizes behaviors. A lot of people learn their own behaviors by observing others. In this case, it teaches that Throwing Shit at others when they disagree is normal. I think much like School Shootings, if we desire for less actual shit to be thrown at others over any form of disagreements, then those ideas are not mentioned or given focus. Not much different than watching any episode of Desperate Housewives of where the fuck ever. It normalizes non thinking emotional based intolerable behaviors which can only result in a need for supervision of those who mimic the behaviors they have seen. Thus, in a way it promotes Big Govt to manage everyones behavior by teaching everyone to behave irresponsibly and immaturely when ever they disagree with anyone about anything. Thoughts?

    Well, that was me...I can't know that the turd flingers in this case were, in fact, immigrants. If I had to fathom a guess, they were self hating citizens, more than likely idle, lily white, university brainwashed sons and daughters of the upper middle class.

    Shutting down InfoWars may not be the actual goal here, but Free Speech. Regardless of what is shown in the videos, what is being normalized is the assaults on the mental images of people who use Free Speech to expose Lies of the Govt. If the real target was Free Speech itself, they would not attack the popular thing to say. Having control of the narrative can be exploited to change the mental perceptions of people who are not Liberal or Liberal leaning, while simultaneously validating existing perspectives. By attacking InfoWars, they are also attacking the perceptions of everyone else who does not believe their narrative. I must consider that it is very plausible that the real goal is not InfoWars itself, but everyone else by using InfoWars as a scapegoat. Once you convince the people to change their perspective on a given subject, they will openly support change that further restricts freedom. There are Four sides to an argument. There is always a Speaker and there is always a Listener. Another perspective is Agreement opposed by Disagreement. The Four sides are a Matrix by combining those two categories. Listeners can choose to either Agree or Disagree with any given narrative. Speakers will also lean toward expressing ideas they only Agree with, so Speaking your own idea that is Disagreed with rarely ever happens without manipulation. With nearly full control of the Narrative, what youre hearing seems to be universally supportive of one idea, which is Big Govt. What theyve done with the Narrative is to create an Illusion of Choice by saying "support this point of view" or "support that point of view", but both points of view end with the same result, which is Bigger Govt. The way the MSM works is to control "who" is allowed to speak. If an opinion is expressed that supports either Trap of Big Govt, then the opinion is allowed. So its what is not said here, as usual, that is more important. For the majority of Listeners, they hear one side of the argument, which silences their own opinions, and further reinforces the cycle. That leaves the majority of Listeners with a set of arguments that end up supporting one idea. They hear no other perspectives which would support Smaller Govt, which is why the Internet is so important to Freedom. They control the masses by telling people what to think, which means they must not tell people what they do not want people to think at the same time. The latter being MUCH more important than the first. Thus, in order to control the Internet the same way as one way MSM works, every major communication platform must incorporate Self Censorship and exploit Private Property to control that Narrative. The way to control the Narrative on the internet incorporating the previous ideas of silencing specific opinions is to create and support major platforms that choose to Self Censor, or heavily bias the way information is presented to people. I think we all know that Google and Twitter and the likes of the major platforms that reach a broad spectrum of people is very very Left Leaning, while the Right Leaning are only supported if the Narrative is for Big Govt, thus maintaining the Illusion of Choice. The reality is there is no difference between MSMs brand of Left and Right as both sides call for Big Govt, and the ones that are constantly shut down is anyone who supports Smaller / Less Govt.

    What The Hell? Congress Steps In To Shut Down InfoWars InfoWars Link: https://www.infowars.com/what-the-hell-congress-steps-in-to-shut-down-infowars/ Even if you dont like Alex Jones / Infowars, do you think he has a Constitutional Right to exercise Free Speech and Free Press? Is it not more important to protect the Rights of people to express statements we do not agree with rather than only protect expressions that we do agree with? Is it only the "popular" thing to say that deserves the protection of the First Amendment? Alternatively, do you think Alex Jones abuses his Free Speech by yelling Fire in a crowded theater, since its the most common example of what "not" to say? Does Alex Jones bully people? Does he lie? Does he misconstrue the information to distort perception? Whats your take?

    I'm with Rand. Trump is either going to imperfectly push for peace or embrace interventionism, he has flirted with both. Criticizing his performance if you support diplomacy doesn't push him more into the Amash camp, it tells him to listen to Bolton if he wants to be popular. If Ron or Rand were president they would have met with Putin and received this same flak. About time to err on the side of humility in foreign relations.
