    This is exactly how Ive been feeling lately having an older parent who lives his life in anger and disgust thinking this country is basically on the verge of collapse.

      bill oreilly was on previously talking about how reagan wasnt a true republican. they are trying to see who can become the most conservative. studies show as people get more money, they become more republican, while also becoming more apt to doing and saying "mean" things as they lose life perspective.

      and fox news watchers are less informed and educated on current events than people who dont watch any news at all.

      i could go on all day about whats wrong with the modern day republican party, and its not a problem with the core of republican ideals. just people who are in currently in charge and their motives.

            My father in law is exactly this guy's dad. It is maddening. Fox news is constantly on, and I swear that man would kill Obama if the opportunity presented itself.

              Part of the reason for Fox getting away with this crap is the gutlessness of the rest of the media and their complete failure to call things what they are.

                To sum it up, Fox News knows what drives viewership and in turn what drives profits. Who do you blame really? Its par for living in a capitalist society. I still sleep well at night knowing that the older folks and their 'me first' ideas will all die off soon and that the younger, less selfish generation, will be better educated and in turn better thinkers. The hate, bigotry and religion will start to fade over time. 200 years from now Christianity will probably be relegated to the hills of Eastern Ky and the farms of Utah.

                  Nicely written and disturbingly true.

                    It's pretty much the same strategy being successfully employed by the Rush Limbaughs and Sean Hannitys. Good charlatans make a lot of money.

                      You all realize most of the media is terrible, right? Honestly lately the most accurate news is coming from Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert. Who are comedians.

                          It is a pretty straight line from Sun Myung Moon via L Ron Hubbard to Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity. It is all about shutting people off from every source of information until they believe only the true gospel. It has worked for 1000s of years and it will work for as long as there is a large group of people who will not active seek information and evaluate the truth of what they are told.

                            30 year old crew who believes this country is on the verge of collapse. It's not going to be 1 event where the country descends into chaos but a series of small tremors that will eventually be a tipping point. Similar to the Roman empire from 2nd to 5th centuries we will see our own demise and decline.

                            Leadership in this country is doing nothing to tell the truth or implement any policy to stop such a decline. Instead we are led by parties that represent special interests. It's not about a common good of Americans but what is good for "our" group that they represent.

                            Both Democrats and Republicans alike make me sick. We can't even get decent news coverage in this country without political slandering. Take the event in Ukraine. 1 is a group of firebombing "protestors" in Kiev and the other is a group of militant armed terrorists in Crimea.

                              Ever heard of Chris Matthews, Keith Olbermann, or any of the countless other "charlatans" of the left? Hate Fox News all you want, but don't be delusional; it goes both ways...
