I am so damn tired of watching the news and only hearing talking points and sound bites without any real converations or debate. Apparently they work because I hear them a lot on this forum. Here is one, feel free to put any that you like be it Republican, Democrat or whatever:

Not a revenue problem but a spending problem.

Did not come here to Kick the can down the road.

Then stop watching corporate MSM and get your news elsewhere.

The only investigative news show worth watching is Frontline and that even can be found online.

I hear a LOT in the media with statements that are totally wrong and they don't back it up.... I mean seriously... has the media come so entrenched in politics that they spew rhetoric instead of proper investigative journalism... its things like this that gives me a very low opinion of journalists...
