You mean like those that call people who disagree, unpatriotic...unamerican....

Both sides are equally at fault for name games and slander, both sides are so F-ING self righteous its not even funny. Both sides get over yourselves..both sides stop being ignorant.... both sides stop getting every chance you get to blame the other for the problems and realize how your both at fault.

This thread is about joe going to Israel, lets get back to it.

Most of us on the right call them unpatriotic and unamerican because all they do is blame America for every thing that is wrong in this world, giving no credit to the greatness that exists because of her. So, yeah, we're self-righteous about it.

Again, at the end of WW2, 22 known democracies, now more than 100...I'd say America had a lot to do with that.

Well then I guess that makes you all on the right whiny, socialistic pvssies.

Don't really think of myself on the right per say. Certainly on some issues I am, but I am against capital punishment and somewhat for increasing enviromental regulations especially irt protecting national resources.

But I do seem to have struck a nerve. :)

I agree, well except for the part about it not being funny. Watching both sides can be very funny at times. In fact, all I was trying to do was get a rise out of the board lefties. Got to find some way to kill time between now and the game. :)

I could actually care less about Joe the Plumber. I haven't watched or listened to him once. Things said during campaigns, and campaign debates, are meaningless anyway.

So our fore fathers who stood against England and the colonial powers were unpatriotic because they stood up for what they believed was wrong? because they disagreed with the powers that be? Because that is your logic...

To say they blame America for EVERYTHING that is wrong in the world is a gross oversimplification. I love this country, this state, and this town...I would die for any of them. I have the right as an American to stand up for what I believe is wrong, even if it is this country, and to say I am unpatriotic or unamerican for doing so is such an easy out.

See what I mean. Tolerance for all those enlightened souls who accept that the elite know whats best, hate and vitriol for those that dare to disagree. :)

you have a very narrow and naive definition of "the left"

Davidson, start your own damn thread on how right you are and get back on track. Those who give a guy who doesn't pay his taxes and lies about his job the time of day and more than 15 minutes in the spot light are crazy as hell.

‘Joe the Plumber’ Wurzelbacher told a group of journalists covering the conflict in Israel and Gaza that he didn’t think the media should be allowed to report on war.

“I think media should be abolished from, you know, reporting,” Wurzelbacher said. “You know, war is hell. And if you’re gonna sit there and say, ‘well, look at this atrocity,’ well you don’t know the whole story behind it half the time, so I think the media should have no business in it.”

Wurzelbacher arrived in Israel on Sunday to start a 10-day assignment for pjtv.com, a Web site run by the conservative media outlet Pajamas Media. The plumber-turned-foreign correspondent said he wanted to cover Israel’s side of the conflict, because he thought the media was slanting the story to make it look like “Israel’s being bad.”

As he goes about reporting on the war... WTF? Joe, are you really that stupid? Yeah, apparently

He's got a point about the media not knowing what they're covering half the time.

But anti-israel bias in the mainstream media?

I thought Jews controlled the media? Right Mel?

And he's a plumber flown over there to report on the war for a media website, that is the height of hilarity

The reason they are doing it is pretty obvious. It draws attention (as this thread proves). With the fierce competition for ratings and advertising dollars, the news agencies want people to watch, so they can't just tell the news. They have to do something extra to get people to watch. So they send Joe the Plumber. Could help, or could backfire, whose to say.

IMO, there is little difference between hiring Joe the plumber to read the news, and hiring someone because they are good looking. But given that a lot of reporters just read whats written for them, does it really make a difference who is on camera?
