That is fair and you tempered it.

I'm not blind to injustice. We've all formed opinions based on our life experience. I have a rudimentary knowledge of US history. That extreme biased video completely discounts the overwhelming good this country has stood for and defended, funded, and supported. We are the ones that sacrificed so much to free the world from tyranny. If you want to sit warm under the blanket of freedom, woven by the sacrifices of those that protect it, and cry and moan about how evil the USA is, don't expect a lot of support from those of us that appreciate the USA.

I dug a little deeper into that video's origin; still maintain it's anti-American hostility. Look at the Utube comments below it. There are a lot of viscious America hating FOREIGN comments of unknown origin.
With the election so close, there's increasing propaganda everywhere. Journalism has taken a turn for the worse and is failing in any attempt at objectivity.


If you want to post sensationalistic videos you still can, just don't be so silly as to expect everybody to agree.

Hey Dann, I take it that comment is directed at me but I don't know where you got that cry & moaning about the evil of the U.S. while basking in our freedoms. I said I would like to know where it's coming from & who's trying to gain from it. If it's the cockroach thing I stand by it (there are a few exceptions, at least I hope so) but most have sold their souls long ago & that's more than evident from the laws they pass, the incomes they amass & the fact that the people are only thought of around this time of the years. They no longer work for us & they exclude themselves from most laws that are made for us or to keep us in line, DC is corrupt.

What is incorrect or "sensationalistic" about the video?

Did Nixon, in fact, take us off the gold standard? Are the reasons presented in the video correct or not?

Are we on the petrodollar?

Did several middle eastern countries try to get away from the dollar? What happened when they did?

If China and Russia succeed in breaking the dollar as they are attempting now, what will happen?

Sam when I try to pay you a compliment or find some common ground you react defensively. Every response isn't about you. Sheesh. Here let me try again.

Most would agree.

I stated that. Not gonna take your bait. You're entitled to see what you want to see, I saw a video detrimental to The American Spirit.

Sam didn't say that I did. But you are getting as good as he is at giving imaginary answers. :)

I'm not all that interested in the American zeitgeist. Is the information factual or isn't it?

You can draw different conclusions from the same facts.

Well then that's on you. Facts are facts.

Just because I don't believe I'll get killed if I walk in front of a bus doesn't change the FACT that a mass of steel the size of a bus is going to crush me like a bug.

All the information is easily verified. No conclusions necessary. Just connect the dots.

One of my indicators as to whether something is true or not is if I can find the same information from multiple unrelated sources.
