Daily breaking news and news the liberal media doesn't want you to know, won't report, or just daily news issues.

Americans for many years have had to rely on left leaning biased news reporting from liberal media such as NBC, ABC, and CBS and the New York Times. As most of these outlets struggle to remain on the air and in print, the new media is flourishing and people are hearing both sides of the issues. This forum will provide people with a place to discuss daily news issues of any kind or discuss articles not printed or aired by the liberal news outlets.

Enjoy your game, try to stay dry.

You are correct about powering up computers and that's part of the point. Say the worse case situation occurs, you need power to operate and transer knowledge trapped in a computer. With hard copies (books and the like) all you need is some natural light and the means to carry them from place to place.

I don't worry about these skirmishes we are getting into. But I do worry about a militant nation rising slowly and gaining the technological ability to render harm on us to the extreme. Ten well place nukes and a well coordinated attack involving blood agents and the western world could topple.

"from your answer i see that your military service did not affect you in the same way it did myself"

It affected me in all the right ways.

"you said it...i didn't."

And I stand by it. Saving a book is more important than saving cloth.

kendall, i have been thinking about your concern regarding loss of batteries or any energy source in which to power the current or even future technology. it would seem to me that should such a catastrophic event occur, powering up a computer may be the least of our immediate concerns or even the safety of a copy of time or even ...gasp...the national enquirer. although the national enquirer is an entertaining and salacious read sometimes. your statement concerning war has been a contentious one in my mind. i contend that we have not actually fought a "war" since the second world war. i may be wrong depending on one's definition of war, but the rest of the conflicts in my opinion have been more akin to police actions or economic/political actions. currently it seems that we are the cat that refuses to kill the mouse. we simply toy and play with the problem until the problem fights back. then we go into political correctness denial. much hand-wringing and indecisiveness. gott

kendall, i have eaten many things but crow is not one that i wish to consume now. thank you for the offer though. from your answer i see that your military service did not affect you in the same way it did myself. that is a shame. sometimes the same occurs with a stint in prison. in addition, i never said that you desecrated the flag. your stated willingness and intent and that was all i was commenting on. you said it...i didn't. sure sitting on the sidelines is the same as being in the game...i know...i know. evryones a citizen blah...blah... blah. everybody wins. so now you know where i stand and i know where you stand. thank you for your service to this country. i appreciate what you did.

Back on the "blind nationalism", yes..it exists. Whenever someone thinks the US is correct just because we are the US...then that is blind nationalism. We are one of the greatest and most powerful nations that has ever existed..but we are not infallible. We have lost wars and made many mistakes along the way. I like to think we have done some good in our time and will continue to but I have no problem with pointing out when we have screwed up.

My pessimistic side tells me that batteries eventually die out. And even with such things, the everyday person would suffer terribly.

Deep down I hope we would never have to worry about such a thing like the loss of so much of our culture and knowledge but if there was a sudden rise in militantism from Asia and a decline of power in the West, then it is quite possible that a world war could destroy much of our information.

Spc (E-4), ANG, 12B10, trained at Fort Leonard Wood..dreadful place in the winter mind you. Would you like to eat your crow now or later?

I've never desecrated the flag. I merely stated what I would do if the situation came about.

Also, having been in the service of one's country does not make them more of a citizen than someone that has not. I took a lot out of my time in the military but in no way does that make the flag mean anything more to me than what it is, merely a symbol and nothing more.

along with the intelligence associated with the digital age, it would be hopeful that someone would be mindful and have a substantial battery back-up system.

personally there is no "blind nationalism" for me. maybe for you, but not for me and thousands of others that have fought under that flag that you would so easily desecrate. quite possibly if you were vested in this country you would have a different outlook. in the meantime, you may consider it polite to just say thank you to those that have afforded you the luxury of free thought and expression.....you are welcome in advance.

I am leery of our digital age. It offers us up some great advantages over that of our ancestors. But I worry that a modern day equivalent of the burning of the Library of Alexandria could happen. Imagine if suddenly the power simply went off and never came back on. We would lose so much of our knowledge.

That which others find of importance should be respected to a certain degree. Personally I don't care about the flag beyond it being a symbol for others. When it comes to history and knowledge, I do care more about that. If it came down to letting someone burn a flag or the Koran, I would let them burn the flag first. I just don't have much respect for blind nationalism.

good evening Kendall78, i don't think there would have been anything wrong with burning the korans in either place. he was considerate enough to bring his own grill. most parks in the south offer grilling options for those that "live to grill". in addition, it is obvious that his intended action was for publicity and to make a statement. however it does seems curious how all of the television and newspaper cameras just happened to be around when our flag and or other printed material is consumed by the fire of others brand of free speech. frankly, there are some publications that deserve to be burned, but i will agree that our emotional attachment to the printed page and its illustrations will have a place in our memories and hearts until future generations fully realize the potential of the digital age. its encouraging to note that you apparently do not have a problem with the message. rather brave of you.

"A Florida pastor was arrested Wednesday as he drove a pickup truck towing a large barbecue-style grill filled with kerosene-soaked Korans to a park.."

The focus should be, "to a park". If he wasn't doing this for publicity then what was wrong with doing it on private land?

Personally, burning books is just plain dumb.

But any speculation about who will never be censored is just speculation, I would guess......?

How may one "hear"such speculation ? Is anything other than good (h)ears required ?

Charles Krauthammer commentary: The president of the United States takes to the airwaves to urgently persuade the nation to pause before doing something it has no desire to do in the first place. That “strike Syria, maybe” speech culminates with the argument that the proper response — the most effective way to uphold fundamental norms, indeed human decency — is a flea bite: something “limited,” “targeted” or, as so memorably described by Secretary of State John Kerry, “unbelievably small.”

extremists do not care for us or our ideals no matter what we do to placate them.

"A Florida pastor was arrested Wednesday as he drove a pickup truck towing a large barbecue-style grill filled with kerosene-soaked Korans to a park, where the pastor had said he was planning to burn 2,998 of the Muslim holy books — one for every victim of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks." our freedom to protest ends where the koran begins. the reports did not say what happened to the kerosene-soaked korans. surely after posting any bail or reciept of tickets he had the right to "flame-on". hmmm i have a feeling he was persuaded to not exercise his right as he was persuaded in the past. i do find it odd that those that burn our nations flag are heralded as examples of our freedom when in actuality they selectively desecrate, with protection, what many in our nation have died and fought for. as evidenced by the daily attacks against our troops, allies and consulates in the middle-east, you would think the politically-correct would get the fact that the muslim
