    The best way (if there is a way) to force the left wing media into moving to the center is cut off their source of profits. If the companies who advertise on left wing media, network news, cnn etc received millions of emails, letters saying that their products will not be bought as long as the sponsor they lying left wing media then it may make a difference.

    "We the People of the United States" ^ | January 16, 2012 | Miri
    © Miri WTPOTUS January 16, 2012 While I researched and wrote this article over the past week, The Post & Email published a story about a citizen who has challenged Mitt Romney’s eligibility for the presidency. The citizen argues that Mitt Romney’s father, George W. Romney, was a Mexican citizen according to Mexican law, by virtue of his birth in that country. The citizen further argues that it is incumbent upon Mitt Romney to prove that his father naturalized in the USA by the time of Mitt’s birth, in 1947.

    Yahoo News, AP ^ | 6/10/2010 | Charles Babington
    President Barack Obama is asking Republican lawmakers to approve billions of dollars in new spending to avert a scheduled 21 percent cut in payments to doctors who treat Medicare patients. If GOP senators don't allow the stalled proposal to pass, some doctors will stop treating Medicare recipients, Obama said in his weekly radio and Internet address Saturday.

  • Buffett and Gross warn: $516 trillion bubble is a disaster waiting to happen

    "Charlie and I believe Berkshire should be a fortress of financial strength" wrote Warren Buffett. That was five years before the subprime-credit meltdown. "We try to be alert to any sort of mega-catastrophe risk, and that posture may make us unduly appreciative about the burgeoning quantities of long-term derivatives contracts and the massive amount of uncollateralized receivables that are growing alongside. In our view, however, derivatives are financial weapons of mass destruction, carrying dangers that, while now latent, are potentially lethal." That warning was in Buffett's 2002 letter to Berkshire shareholders. He saw a future that many others chose to...
  • Deep Capture, the Movie.

    A massive financial crime is harming the United States while the institutions that should be stopping it have been captured by the criminals doing it. Specifically, hedge funds and Wall Street banks are stealing from pension funds, shattering corporate governance, ruining firms, and raising the specter of systemic failure. The regulators and financial press are so indolent it borders on a cover-up.The dots have been connected in the world of social media, but the same criminals who are behind the financial scam are manipulating social media to forestall the day of social epiphany. The derision that initially met my claims...

    Maybe the era of big government isn't over, after all. SOURCE: A Gary Shilling & Co., 2006/RICH CLABAUGH – STAFFSlightly over half of all Americans – 52.6 percent – now receive significant income from government programs, according to an analysis by Gary Shilling, an economist in Springfield, N.J. That's up from 49.4 percent in 2000 and far above the 28.3 percent of Americans in 1950. If the trend continues, the percentage could rise within ten years to pass 55 percent, where it stood in 1980 on the eve of President's Reagan's move to scale back the size of government. That...
