Oh, I don't doubt the media will continue to get more and more ridiculous as time progresses.
The problem is the number of people watching them and taking them seriously is decreasing very quickly.

It's more my theory they will keep going through one side and out the other side of it.
They will forever present their editorial to anyone that would listen, but their teeth will be gone.
The effective power distributed to a million stars in 'the great cosmic interwebz'

The internet itself is actually fighting this from happening though. Constantly feeding search results to people that agree with them. It's really hard to have a clue as to what anyone else is actually thinking.

This used to be where the media filled in the holes.
Now we just talk to people, I've had conversations of varying natures with people from all over the world.
Thanks to the ridiculous fact most of them were forced to learn English for reasons that I think were meant to have a opposite effect than the one they have had.

This could go on forever though there is no end to this conversation.
...and sadly seeker I'm too much of a realist to jump straight on the 'love train' if you'll pardon the synopsis.

At this point I think the first step in the door is to merely get people to start accepting other people's right to exist.
Not like them, not know them, not agree with them, and certainly not love them.

It would be nice, but starting from a point of absolutes is completely contrary to any reality I understand about ...well life in general not just the human kind.

Just that tiny little thing would actually change the entire world right now.

Love is one of those dirty four letter words, many people these days only use right before engaging in other dirty four letter type words. I wouldn't expect much traction in reality.

Few people understand how important it is to stand up for others.

If you don't, then little by little, choice and freedom are eroded - by the time you realise- it is too late.

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out--
Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out--
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out--
Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me--and there was no one left to speak for me.
Thank you for the kind words SIW2.

Instead of griping about it on some forum, put your money where your mouth is.
That's why I posted the contact links, look what it did to stop SOPA, and PIPA, for now.

Ours may be a lousy system, but it isn't the only way we have for the "common people" to express themselves to their elected Representatives.
Get out and vote; send a postcard, have meetings, work to have laws changed, make your voice heard, but the email angle seems to be the most effective, you can't stop you have to keep hammering at them, and you should also email to them in their home State offices.

So far I have emailed each U.S. Senator, and I am now working on the House, that will end up being a total of 535 emails.
Now that may seem like a small number, but if all the members here at SevenForums did the same, and the last time I checked it was 194,148 it would total 103,869,180 emails, each Senator alone would get hit with 9,707,400.
I'd love to hear the start of Congressional hearings down in Foggy Bottom.

My DW, and I just started new FiOS service with Verizon, and I am in a thread asking if they could clarify their position, and why haven't they sent out at least a form letter or posted something on-line about this new policy.
I expect a “canned response” in reply, but my hope is other FiOS users will see it, and “rally 'round the flag”.
It is here if anyone would like to see it

I realize that I will never see deep changes in how Governments are run in my lifetime, and it will take several generations for changes to be made, maybe more than several if ever, but I will have the satisfaction knowing that at least I tried.

I should think they are crafting their announcement very, very carefully - it will tell you their actions are for your own good, I imagine.

They are probably looking for out of work political speech writers...liberals most likely.

Liberals and conservatives are equally amusing to me, they are both seeking absolutes.
They will always fail.

I just did something that raised another question in my mind about this issue. I attempted to connect with a website called MegaVideo in one of my video players, and was greeted by a large FBI emblem, saying that the site was associated with Mega Upload, which had been seized. I clicked off the site within a couple of seconds, but now I'm wondering if that will put me on their list?
