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.

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.”

"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

California Governor Jerry Brown announces that the Karma of deceased democrats will be allowed to cast ballots in abstenia. Moonbeam has spoken. Predictable headline for the future.

After years of setbacks, Democratic lawmakers and Latino activists are on the verge of seeing immigrants who are in the country illegally granted the right to a driver's license in California. The state Assembly approved the bill on a 55-19 vote late Thursday, hours after the Senate also voted to pass it. Gov. Jerry Brown issued a statement indicating he would sign it into law.

The federal government has access to a massive database of 25 years of AT&T phone data, NBC News has confirmed, as part of a secret program in which phone company employees work alongside local and federal law enforcement agents to track the phone calls of suspected drug dealers.

As first reported by the New York Times, the Hemisphere Project is at least six years old and has access to the data from every call coming through an AT&T switchboard back to 1987. The pool grows by billions of calls a day, includes information on the location of callers, and is larger than the controversial database maintained by the NSA, which goes back five years.

Walmart's Average Employee Would Have To Work 785 Years To Earn CEO's Annual Salary

Posted 360 days ago.

In 2005, the average CEO in the United States earned 262 times the pay of the average worker, the second-highest level of this ratio in the 40 years for which there are data. In 2005, a CEO earned more in one workday (there are 260 in a year) than an average worker earned in 52 weeks. The 1980s, 1990s, and 2000s have been prosperous times for top U.S. executives, especially relative to other wage earners. This can be seen by examining the increased divergence between CEO pay and an average worker’s pay over time, as shown in Figure A. In 1965, U.S. CEOs in major companies earned 24 times more than an average worker; this ratio grew to 35 in 1978 and to 71 in 1989. The ratio surged in the 1990s and hit 300 at the end of the recovery in 2000. The fall in the stock market reduced CEO stock-related pay (e.g., options) causing CEO pay to moderate to 143 times that of an average worker in 2002. Since then, however, CEO pay has exploded and by 2005 the average CEO was paid $10,982,000 a ye

I thought that was your point valveguy and I agree. What I do not agree with is the CEO's, and board of directors getting huge salaries and bonuses and when the grunt in the field deserves more money, they pass it on to us consumers. It is a very high ratio of top dogs wages compared to grunts pay here in the USA. It is much lower in Europe. I wil look itr up and post it here.

Point is if you are for increased wages and benefits for fast food workers or for folks working at Wal-Mart, than you will have to accept the trade off of paying higher prices for their goods and services. Some will argue that the Waltons make too much money as do the franchise owners of McDonalds. But in the short term, if you want the wage and benefits to rise for workers in these industries, the customers will pay. I am not passing judgment but passing on business practices as it is today. Just like businesses making full time workers part time to dodge Obamacare, if you were a small business owner supporting your family reducing costs raises your income. Business owners are not charities.
