    The generation coming up is a very strange bunch. Everything revolves around social media and perception. It's almost as if facebook is a surrogate. There's a complete disconnect to the real world, everything is a photo op.

    It has everything and nothing to do with it all while happening at the same time but at different hours in different days.


    But whatever you do, move the narrative forward.

    As much as blank and I don't agree on a lot of political topics, we agree here. The stories above are not about liberalism.

    Obama
    This is misleading. There are no embassies in the Vatican City itself, the new location is infact closer to Vatican City, in the same compound as the embassy in Italy, and the buildings were purchased pre-Obama administration.

    But I suppose the narrative WT and the Drudge pushes sounds better than the actual truth. Lol.

    We agree on this one thing... I also prefer the narrative that it was Bush's fault.

    No, Obama Is Not Closing The Vatican Embassy

    I'm just saying that WT, Drudge, and Brietbart were unsurprisingly and unequivocally wrong in saying they shut it down, or that it's a slap in the face to Catholics or the Vatican.

    Instead of objectivity, they chose dishonest journalism to get page views and ad dollars. Because that's what people who read those kinds of sites want to see. And it's a very recurring pattern for all 3 of those websites.

    Rather than give you the news, they wanted to trigger a negative emotion.

    Just hope you're all aware. That is all

    Can you find 1 single media publication that doesnt do these things? Look at how systematicly many news organizations took Romney's "I like to fire people" comment and completely changed the context of the statement. That statement, taken in context, should describe 100% of American consumers.

    The point is its your responsibility as an informed voter to filter out that kind of noise. It's tabloid journalism and it seems that too many people embrace it as legitimate information. It's the root of this "movement conservatism".

    You said it all right there. Informed voters are a very rare thing in this coutry and the reason why politicians have been able to get away with the BS they pull on a daily basis.

    Think back over the last 3 or 4 election cycles. Can you think of a single negative ad that isnt half truths and conjecture? Can you think of one negative ad that would do anything to sway a voter that actually relied on more than a 30 second TV ad to form their opinion of the candidates?


    In this day of instant information, you would think a truly honorable candidate would emerge in some of these races and leave their opponents nothing to run negative ads against them with. The opposite is true. The ads are so negative and the campaigns work so hard to tarnish their opponents it turns away any truly honorable people that care about their friends and family.
