    Can't bury this one

    Is the Religious Right to blame for Christianity's decline?

    They argued that, as the Religious Right became increasingly visible and militant, it became associated with Christianity itself. And if being a Christian meant being associated with the likes of Jerry Falwell, many people—especially political moderates and liberals—decided to simply stop identifying as Christians altogether.

    That is the plan and the usual MO of the left when they can't dream up a counter argument.

    The ironic part is this news of them admitting they slant and shape the news is being scrubbed off the internet by them.

    The owners of these commie media sources should be jailed/fined big time. Where is the FCC in these matters?

    What 'should' be more scary about this...

    Is what was predicted in the novel 1984... is literally happening now...
    And folks have no idea how dangerous it it!

    If the USA and our Constitution falls...
    The world could well go back into a dark ages...
    Where 1/100 of 1 % are wealthy... and the other 99.99% are peasants!

    Do you lefties want to be peasants???
    If you do not... then you had better wake up to the lies you are being fed!

    Ted Cruz 'grills' Google exec on political censorship



    What's your take on her? She strikes me as arrogant and indignant that she, a Google Executive, should be called to account.

    Wonder how many 'reminders' it is gonna take for the liberals at ARP to (grudgingly) admit their side is doing this...

    IMO we should take up a collection and buy a dozen or so copies of 1984...
    and offer them to the lefties.

    Problem is... they would not understand... even if they were self disciplined enough to read...

    First I want to say that I think it is disgusting that a company so powerful would use its resources to try & influence our election system. Whether they're trying to get rid of Donald Trump or Bernie Sanders it should not make a difference. It's a scary thing that a big corporation feels that they can shape our views to vote for or against anyone who might lead our nation. All that being said there still is a fine line between freedom & how politics are involved in your business. If Google wants to donate money towards a Democratic campaign to help influence the election they have every right so why do they not have a right to try & steer people in the political direction they want also. The real question for me is whether they are breaking any laws & that I don't know. It's pretty obvious to me that the main stream news doesn't like Trump & that Fox news does like Trump so I take the bias into consideration whenever I take the time to listen to either of them. The most important thing is that people be made aware of the bias of these organizations so they understand better the supposed news they are receiving. The people need think more for themselves & stop acting like sheep waiting to be shown the direction they should go. It doesn't matter if we think Trump is a good or bad president but it does matter that we come to that conclusion ourselves & not just because we were told what to believe. We can't help but being influenced from outside sources but we can help how many sources we research & how we vet the information we receive.

    I think the result of Liberal dominance will be closer to the Aldous Huxley classic "Brave New World". IMO, many Liberals live in that world already (in their heads).

    The sad thing, in my opinion, many of the liberals & lefties just do not believe that "their" people who they listen to and look up to would ever not tell real truth or, try to sway someones thinking with not correct information
