» Upworthy — or, How we are losing the internet to lowest of low information young liberals - Le·gal In·sur·rec·tion

A link to Elizabeth Warren's political agenda question about penalizing Wall Street bankers opens an anit-NRA poll.

Following the poll there is no discussion, but links to spread the 'Upworthy' content to social media, urging participants to share the content with users on the internet.

You do know if you don't like it you are free to start your own conservative site that does nothing but push conservative agendas. Think of CD as your training site, now go out there and blog your little conservative heart out my free bird.

LOLOL. You don't even realize you're checking your internet sources with stuff like the above mentioned.

It's a vicious circle in lefty heads.

No worries, you'll still have your empty chairs to talk to, and the bridges (and candidates) to nowhere...

I think we all need to come together and have a common sense discussion about real work compromises concerning the 1st amendment. These are things we should all be able to agree to right?



See how stupid that sounds?

Did the people at Upworthy tell you to reply with that? I sure hope not because they sound pretty stupid already.

Man...
What people seem to miss about The Daily Show is that it's pretty boring and pointless if you don't follow politics. This is of course why the Daily Show viewers tend to score pretty high when quizzed on factual knowledge - it self-selects an for an audience that follows politics. In other words, it isn't particularly informative - but it's roundly entertaining if you're fairly well informed already.
