If I were to let Fox news, or MSNBC, or ABC be my only source of news and information, I'd be braindead. Every once in a while it's good to open a Hustler, and then open a Bible. The contrast is amazing. The depth of varying opinions allows one to reach a better conclusion.

Wasn't suggesting it as an only source. But considering a) how often it scoops the blamestream media by days to months, b) its unique presentation of both hosts and guests of both persuasions, and c) its ranking among the most centrist news sources, it's not only a great place to get ahead of emerging or deliberately concealed news stories but also provides the broadest perspective and most accurate news I can find at any one place. That's precisely why the far left, from Obama to the freak show here, fears it so much.

I came to the US with a student visa and scholarship.

I guess I should not be here.


Ah...I PAID FOR MY OWN COLLEGE. YOU COULD HAVE TOO. I'm glad you made it, but the reality is there are plenty of Americans who deserved your scholarship money.


I paid for my education, too, but received a merit-based scholarship (which in a small part was funded by federal grants to the institution). Without it, I would not have been able to study here, then live here, then start a tech company and "create jobs".

As far as I know, financial assistance from federal sources was and is only available for US citizens - US born or naturalized. What exactly is your point?

You automatically get Fox news when you put on your tin hat and tighten your wing nuts.

Just another Republican hit piece that is so pointed that it's worthless. Are the Republicans the "good guys" with the white hats, while the Democrats are the nasty "bad guys" with the black hats? I guess for the simple minded folks looking for the Republicans to kick some butt. But, all one really has to do is look beyond all the forced drama and look at what the Republicans have really accomplished. I'm not fooled at all.

Boston: Seven Muslim ‘Chemical Engineers’ Caught Trespassing At Quabbin Reservoir Supplying Drinking Water To Boston, Patrols Stepped Up Across State

More madness because of our immigration policy and fear of being called "racists". Why are they here?

Yes indeed what have the republicans accomplished? Mostly horrible catastrophies in recent years. Needless unfunded wars, wrecking the economy, etc.

Don't forget the children and puppies they eat for breakfast, the newborns they barbeque, their refusal to compromise or to present budgets, their three heads, and their hatred of anyone younger, poorer, or darker (orange doesn't count) than Mitch McConnell.
