    Before we go any further, where’s the evidence of this accusation?

    Agreed, Wraithkin. If links from an objective source provides validation to this cartoon, then it would warrant our outrage and letters to legislators who are in a position to take actions to punish a waste of gov’t resources in a judicial matter.
    Thank you for your continued civil and respectful comments, Wraith. We need more like you.

    Complete and utter nonsense.

    Oh, please. Fox lied about Benghazi (there wasn’t a scandal), lied about the IRS (all groups were targeted, not just conservative ones), and lied about Solyndra. And they never ran corrections on any of them when they were proved false. Why should we trust them on a literally unbelievable story like this, when no evidence is produced?

    Dear Tigger.

    Black is a race. Hispanic is an ethnic group. According to the Bureau of the Census, 49% of all Hispanics self-identify as white.

    “Then some coward challenges him to a fight then shoots him out of fear because he can’t fight.”

    We passed Castle Doctrine and Stand Your Grounds to protect ourselves from people who want to fight. It’s not just that we don’t want to be beat up and hospitalized. It’s that we cannot possibly know your real intentions. You don’t want to get shot? Keep your $#@ hands to yourself.

    And let’s not forget Doctor/Senator Frist fanning the flames with Terri Schiavo.

    Very true. I think most of the liberal media is hoping there are riots in Florida when Zimmerman is acquitted. They might just get their wish. Stay away from Miami and Jacksonville during the verdict.

    Btw, those track suits are hilarious.

    The worst racists I used to know would go out looking for fist fights in the 80s and early 90s before more people carried guns. Guys would come in Monday, faces swollen, having to drink Ensure, ready to go again next week.

    The left doesn’t have a monopoly on that. Just sayin’.

    @ David:
    I don’t trust that website. First, their name belies their true intent: to smear Fox. Second, I backtracked the “median wage loss” or whatever article they link to its original source Here, and one thing became patently clear: There’s truth, lies, and statistics.

    Fox is saying that median net worth dropped between 2007 and 2010. This is factually accurate, given the data they have. The data only picks out data points. The argument that the loss occurred only between 2007 and 2008 is preposterous; there are only specific points in time they do the measuring. 2007 and 2010. There is no line graph anywhere in the mix, there is no measurement for 2008 or 2009. So that website (foxnewslies) is coming up with their own “facts” (aka “lying”). That report has no factual information in it that proves WHEN between 2007 and 2010 the loss happened, only that it happened when comparing 2007 data against 2010 data.

    So … what does this tell us? It tells us that both Fox and this foxnewslies website are picking information out of statistics to tell the truth. The only possible “lie” that is being told is that Fox is blaming Obama for the entire loss. But to hold him harmless in this whole issue is nonsense. After all, he had it for 2 of those 4, and the recession didn’t kick off in earnest until middle of 2008, late 2008. That means if you follow basic logic, he had more time for 2009 to 2010 to follow it downward.

    Is he to blame for that? Very unlikely. Could have have done more to mitigate the loss? Absolutely. Trust, but verify. C’mon David, you’re smarter than this.

    “Oh, please. Fox lied about Benghazi…”

    You seem to be ignoring two government investigations and a filing for bankruptcy in your post.

    Just because you and the mainstream media do not find something to be an issue does not mean it is not. There are definitely things that were not done correctly with Benghazi, the IRS chose to go after the Tea Party/Patriots as was called for by those who felt the wrath of Americans in the 2010 mid term election that caused the Democrats to lose control of the Senate and House. Many of these green energy companies were given money to try and prop them up. There was no time left to help Solyndra, but they got the monies anyway.

    I distrust anything that uses the median instead of the mean. It seems to always smack of someone trying to make an invalid point.

    Just type in the printing in the cartoon (sans cursive) in a search. Easy enough. You’ll have to wade through the political sites to find credible ones.

    Two of my closest friends in high school identified themselves as “Mexican”, even though one’s family had lived in the same area that BECAME the U.S. for eight generations, long before the U.S. existed. The other only traced his “Mexican” ancestry back four generations.

    Bob, with the eight generations identified more with his Mayan ancestry, NOT that which came from Spain. THAT IS a “racial”, not merely “ethnic” identity. I met both at our 40th high school reunion, Bob was a neurosurgeon, Eddie had been a firefighter and forester with the state of California. Neither though either “Hispanic”, nor “Latino”, a valid identifier to them.

    While my ancestry is Germanic (Caucasian) and Cherokee (non-white), but I identify as an American human.(No hyphenation)
