    You can’t put them in a tube of silence; that’s unconstitutional. You can stop watching them, drive down their ratings and make them lose their sponsors.

    Pig has climbed out of the Box O’ Stupid People, and summoned the Bunny O’ Wisdom.

    Good luck, Great Bunny! The Cube of Silence is at our fingertip (mute button).

    Panel 4 will never happen. It means that people would have to admit they’re wrong and that they’ve been duped.

    When I was growing up, we were force-fed the “facts” the government wanted us to have, many of which were deliberately wrong and/or harmful. Actual truth is very hard to establish. While “fake news” is bad, I still think we’re better off having hundreds of opinions instead of just a small number that the government can control.

    Eventually, computers will serve the same purpose as the Great Bunny, but I don’t know if that’s good or bad.

    I always have to remember that America has the colours wrong.

    In Canada:

    Blue is conservative.

    Red is liberal.

    In case ANYONE is interested, the “Red” and “Blue” designations were created by a News Network, I think it was N.B.C., for their Election Night Coverage YEARS ago with a large Map of the Country that lit each state up in the Different color when the Presidential Candidate of that particular party won that state. It just happened that whoever designed and built the map arbitrarily chose those colors so they would show up best on the Then-New Color Televisions people were starting to buy. It could just as easily have been Red for the Democrats and Blue for the Republicans, but the way it is now just happened to be the color that was chosen. No other significance to the colors was intended, they just looked good. And the year that Ross Perot ran, his states would have lit up with White Light, by the way…

    What do you mean “once again”? For most of the country’s history, news media were proudly and openly partisan. If anything they were more evenly divided back at the beginning between the Federalists and the Democratic-Republicans.

    Getting things done can be overrated. The People’s liberties are most in danger when there is no meaningful opposition in government.

    Having Congress pass a bill doe not equal “geting things done.” It usually means high taxes, government regulation and pure nonsense.

    “Getting things done” is when Americans of good will build businesses, employ people, engage in charity, have families and promote virtue in society. Government can only interfere in that.

    Let’s stop assuming government is the answer to our problems when it is usually just the cause of the problems in the first place.

    Politics is about give & take. Always has been, always will be. And why not. Look what happened when Hitler’s Nazism became the only political party, or Stalin’s Communism became the only political party? Read about the Founding Fathers in 1789 for true insight into what politics and political parties represent. The Trumpster needs to be challenged every inch of the way!

    The campaign of 2016 exposed the intolerance of Liberals, Progressives, the Left in general. Not intolerant of demographic differences, intolerant of differing political points of view. I knew this intolerance exists, as I worked in a field that tends to attract liberals, and have often seen it firsthand. In 2016, however, it was spotlighted and became undeniable. I literally had a work colleague of many years ‘unfriend’ me on social media because she ‘thought’ I ‘might be a Trump supporter’ (I’m not. I voted for neither of the two major candidates). After the Trump election, leftist anger and intolerance morphed into hate, and, unable to deny it, leftists instead regularly choose to justify their venom by labeling the targets of their hatred (e.g.“nazi; racist; misogynist”) and saying they deserve it. Once one dehumanizes one’s opponent, it’s easier to justify whatever harm one does to him/her.

    The “Great Bunny” in this country was once called “The FCC”, and it had these two bunny ears, one called “The Fairness Doctrine” and the other called “The Equal Time Rule.” This ensured that both sides were exposed to and listened to what the other had to say, and enabled us to reach a consensus on many otherwise divisive issues.

    But an evil man named Ronald Reagan took a knife he called “deregulation” and cut the Great Bunny’s ears off. The result is the increasingly intractable divide we continue to this day to try to endure.

    Pretty accurate. If MSM would simply report the news, all of it (given the 24-hour news cycle) without opinions all the time, things would be a lot better. Also, if people like that Virginia Governor didn’t get access to power, ever.
