    OT: How to be fired in under 5 min.

    Judge Napolitano goes off ... (and subsequently gets canned from Fox)
    Pls Watch if you give a crap

    [Yes, There's a 'Fox' logo - he probably would have been fired had it been msNBC's too]



    I Know this will be binned somehow, I don't care.
    I hope it lasts long enough that some can see it.

    This is our country.
    And we MTB in it.

    When I first saw the Fox "news" logo in the corner, I was mighty skeptical, however this man speaks much truth.

    I could see why Fox would fire him though... can't have one of their boys comparing how similar every President over the past 30 years really has been.

    good point - how do I reword the opening?

    (I know I may not watch it just for that logo)

    Wow, Fox normally makes me vomit! However, that guy's blurb was exactly what I think of your democaracy and ours up here in Canada. We are living in scary times, it's no surprise he got canned.

    It's pretty hard to avoid. Even if you take out the word "Fox" from you're description, they have it plastered over 86.234% of their set...

    Meh... Trolls will troll even if you slap the name of every single major network, website, and political blog up there too. Worthwhile view regardless of what side of the aisle one is on.

    Thanks for sharing, dell. I like to imagine there were some people watching fox at that moment having their minds blown.

    I would hope that your stomach churns equally as much from watching offerings from MSNBC as well considering the sentiments conveyed by Judge Napolitano are so eerily mirrored by the big media outlets.

    And I'm sure you meant to say our representative republic

    Scary times indeed. Reprehensible to consider how Washington himself would not stand a chance at winning a contemporary election because folks who feel a true sense of duty to their country and countrymen are rarely granted membership to the boys club.

    Are you kidding? Washington was a great leader and a catalyst in the early days of our representative republic but really, he was a charter member of the boys club.

    Yep, the old Soviet Union had a one party system and we reviled them. Wow, having TWO political parties is SO "democratic."

    It isn't an accident that when the US helped Japan write it's constitution and set up West Germany, we helped them build modern parliamentary systems. If only someone would democratize us!
    Bicycling is politics by other means.

    All true.

    It's nice to know there are many out there who realize this republic is not determined by we the people. We the people do not even elect the president, the electoral college does and majority does not rule.
    The underlying agenda of both parties are the same, the rest is rhetoric.

    Thanks for posting that H-dell, it was refreshing.

    If Washington was a charter member it was of a much different club. Perhaps my statement will better be conveyed in context of how values of yore are juxtaposed to those of today by adding:

    then America is for you - (I'd say Constitutionalist, or Libertarian) - but that's promoting a party - and all the good parties always get shut down. So, make sure you don't attract cops and pick up your litter!

    Yep, binned - I wish mods said why they binned or locked something - clearly, this thread had not become argumentative. Yet someone 'behind the curtain' thought it should be shut down - preemptively.
    What wrong with free speech? Fair Rights? - no rules broken, yet the the man ....
    (I'm asking whomever binned this, to give a reason why ... it's a fair question)

    Look at all the sidebar ads around here nowadays bro. MTBR got their cash flow game dialed in. This site is now run by corporate hacks sucking the teat of the status quo.

    D*mn the man. You didn't mention Pliney.
    It was perhaps the most insightful threads ever posted on MTBR.
