Heck, 43 minutes ago, CNN thought this was important enough to let me know that Justin Bieber's BAC was below .08%. Out of all the stuff in the world right now, I get buzzed message about his minor consumption issue on my phone.
"We all of us know down here that politics is a tough game. And I don't think there's any point in being Irish if you don't know that the world is going to break your heart eventually."-Daniel Patrick Moynihan, December 5, 1963
“I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
One reason I quit watching TV news is because they care more about Justin Bieber type stories than the NSA spying on us. Back in 2005, Fox spent more time on Natalee Halloway than the Iraq War. As I recall, Jessie Ventura called Sean Hannity out on that fact once and Allan "Don't call me Sherlock" Holmes pulled Sean's ass out of the fire buy calling Jessie out on his Trutherism.
That was actually good TV. It showed me who the real brains was behind Hannity and Colmes.
1. This was a interview about the NSA surveillance (Very important)
2. They interrupted a Congresswoman (Important government person who is probably a very busy person)
3. They did not bring us any News (The life and times of (Insert celebrity name here) does not count as news)
As the article said "Apparently, making sure they cover Bieber's bond hearing live is more important than discussing the US government surveilling every American illegally." With a Congresswoman
You can refine anything in it's pure form to use for good or evil. This goes for everything, not just materials.
"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
