    Apparently, Bush is a much more towering figure for some people.

    Its hardly a surprise, Obama is leading the US into isolationism, not an out and out isolationism as before, but its clear that the Obama administration won't be involved as heavily internationaly as Bush was, Obama is much more focused on dealing with domestic issues, at least thats what it looks to someone on the outside...

    What kind of silly person would appeal to have the olympics in their city by talking about irrelevant stuff.. Talking to people around the globe is not like talking to people in the US. A story that wakes feelings but is irrelevant do not automaticallz brainwash people into having the same opinion as he says they must after the cry cry story and all the silly irrelevant stuff.
    Maximus, try to bear in mind that the U.S., Europe, Australia, a few other Euro centric nations, and a handful of other states are the only serious countries in Earth. All others are little more than problem areas and fodder for American documentary programs.

    Such places need to just chill out for a while, and wait to be properly assimilated into superior cultures, OK?

    Right.. Thats what the majority in the west belief..

    Such gruesome ignorance.


    Think about the poor brazilians and their lack of capitalist paper cash.. It doesnt matter that their lifestyle is superior, their health magnificent compared to fat blobs in Europe and the US. But then again, thats not shown in GDP, so it doesnt matter

    How nice for them. And if Brazil evaporated overnight, how much impact would that have on the rest of the world? Answer: very little.

    By the way, before becoming too passionate about the wonderful life of the Brazilian, I'd suggest you get to know a few poor ones and a few rich ones -- most instructive!

    What we all should want is something in between everywhere and all models as oppose to gripping to one model or country and pointing of the lacks of things in another.

    The lacks are what should be fixed..

    If we do not find a balance, the human race moves ever closer to its death.

    The Human race is dynamic, not static. We lunge, stride, run, fall, climb, slide and retreat. It's not really about balance, it's about controlling the imbalance that creates motion. Or to quote a Disney movie, "it's a nightmare, but it's one exciting ride!"

    Rocks are balanced.

    And as a matter of simple fact, all living things are constantly moving towards their deaths.

    I still appreciate the fact that Fox News exists and they, like the liberal press, have their place. But they need to brush up on their finesse in hiding their obvious slant to the news a little better, for God's sake!


    Obama's Olympic Failure Highlights Limits of His International Appeal - Political News - FOXNews.com
    The obvious slant in the title is further evidence of FNCs biased and unbalanced reporting of the news.

    Please move this thread to Bias in the media. Because that's what it is an example of.

    Heck, I'm still seeing crap about Carter and Clinton.

    In any event, the article cited is not even fit to be toilet paper.

    Pure and utter garbage.
    “No men are anywhere, and I’m allowed to go in, because I’m the owner of the pageant and therefore I’m inspecting it,” Trump said... “‘Is everyone OK’? You know, they’re standing there with no clothes. ‘Is everybody OK?’ And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.”
