    Dog ???

    "Formulating political philosophy" ???

    My political philosophy was established a long time ago. And I doubt anyone is going to change my political philosophy just like I'm not trying to change anyones else's political philosophy on the DP. The young and inexperienced can be influenced but those who have reached middle age are pretty entrenched in their political philosophy and nobody is goling to change them unless they are sent to reeducation (concert ration) camps.

    I find it funny when the young and uninformed with little real experience in life come to the DP and think they are going to change peoples political philosophies.

    Let me help you out about using pictures, cartoons, etc in political debate.

    A political cartoon is a type of drawing used to present opinions, comments, or criticisms of a situation, person, or events. Cartoons help people to understand information by presenting it in a visual and memorable way. Political cartoonists use many different techniques to achieve their goals:

    Caricature - exaggerating one or more physical features - a large mouth to show someone who often speaks out on an issue.

    Symbols - using a recognizable item to communicate an idea - an elephant to represent the Republican Party.

    Caption - having the characters speak or summarizing the message in a few words above or below the cartoon.

    BTW: If you ever post a political cartoon on the DP, do you know what your going to look like upstairs with the grown ups ?

    Most people don't know where Volgograd is or that it used to be Stalingrad... and because it's in the south of Russia, close to the Caucus mountains, it's a fan favorite strike location for chechen terrorists or other islamic groups that activate in the region, as well as radicals that can seek refuge in the mountains.

    I believe because of the WWW (internet not wrestling) we have the most misinformed society today.

    Do you think Obama would be sitting in the White House today if there was no internet as we know it today ? George Soros would have had to bought every news media outlet to accomplish what he was able to do on the internet.

    Could John Kerry have been "Swift Boated" in 2004 without the internet ? The only people who remembered John Kerry back stabbing the American soldier while they were still on the battlefields of Vietnam were the Vietnam vets. With the internet everyone became aware.
    I don't think we are the most misinformed society but i do think there is a lot more disinformation available for people to fall prey to than before.

    However... there are reliable news sources and I trust some internet publications waaaay more than I trust big TV media or such.

    What I think I'm trying to say is that if you have a little persistence and are a more calm person, you can get to the bottom things more reliably... but if you're a hyperactive OMG THE WORLD IS ENDING BECAUSE THE MAYA SAY SO kind of person... you're going to get duped a lot. Even if you're not, you MAY get duped some of the time for a while...

    But fortunately, those people get distracted easily and they end up nowhere at least, nowhere near the red phones, the big chairs and the red buttons. At least not yet...

    Care to share which internet news source you trust ?

    I use to use the BBC for getting my news on the Iraq war. But they even had a bias and an agenda.

    Just the quality of journalism today sucks. And the print media is the source that most other news sources use.

    In my lifetime I've been either directly involved or an eyewitness to an event. Soon the news paper reporters and the local news stations show up. Some times I was interviewed by the reporters. The next day the story is in the paper and what they said happen didn't happen.

    euobserver.com for a lot of my EU related news.
    dw.de for international news and also some European news.
    BBC is pretty fair... it has a lefty bias but you know, what can you do.
    The telegraph can be ok.
    reuters is pretty good and mostly brings the full picture.
    Another really, really good one is spiegel.de .
    And then 1-2 that are Romanian so they're useless for you.

    I use Reuters. They are a source for many in the print and MSM.

    I'm a regular with Spiegel and even used it a couple of times on the DP as a credible source.

    As for the Romanian sources, there are program to translate it to English.

    I've found using friends I have living in Europe and other parts of the world as one of the best sources. I had three friends living in Europe in three different countries during the time when NATO was attacking Libya and from what they read in the European papers and along with their own personal opinions, how the MSM in America covered Libya and the reason why Gaddafi was removed from power isn't the same.

    You are probably more informed on what's going on downstairs.

    So who's the target today down there ?

    That's right, you're not allowed to say.

    Since this is supposedly a political website lets put you to the test.

    In what year did the "Republican right" divide Democrats into five categories and what were those categories ? You get bonus points if you can answerer why they were divided into five categories.
