    yeh, i used to just love Fox News, would watch it every chance i got..

    But then the election cycle.. broke my addiction. I began to see how FNC covers Drump's every sneeze, while the other candidates are covered only in an incomplete, fragmented way. We get bits and pieces of news about them.

    True, Hannity had Cruz on for an hour last night :). That was an exception to the rule. But i have not seen Cruz or Kasich get much time other than that

    Of course, Kasich has absolutely NO chance of winning (except for corruption in the R party convention, maybe. Aren't we just SOOO tired of all the corruption???!!)

    anyway, nowadays, when i am watching FNC and they get to some story about the liar Drump, i just walk away. I suddenly recall that my toenails need to be clipped.. gotta go to the store, even though can't think of anything i need...


    sigh

    Did i mention that i am also depressed a lot these days?


    :(

    I think that the media in most countries tend to favor the status quo. Some more so than others. There seem to be a lot of propaganda that goes on when election time come around and there is always someone behind it all, pulling the strings. I think that countries will get the leaders that fall into line with the last day events according to prophecy and the rise of the beast system.
    Bless ya!

    yeh, i've been wondering about that Beast thing. But i have yet to find irrefutable evidence that the RNC is planning to violate their own rules in order to keep Mr 37% from winning. That is DumOld Grump's avg.. 37% so he is NOT in the majority. And the rules HAVE worked to keep someone with 37% from winning. In other words, he has to get that 1237. Of course he will whine even if he does not.. whine that he has more delegates than the others. Well, big deal, that is not what the rules say, you have to get 1237 delegates . Again, i dont see any evidence of anything being done under-handedly (except i wonder about DT who can never be trusted.. he will do anything to get elected, ditto Clinton)

    Sounds like you have an allergy against Trump, not an addiction to FNC :).. From what I understand, FNC offers each candidate the same air time, but the other candidates just refuse to go on as much as Trump does. I'm guessing its probably because Trump is financing his own campaign, so he's more motivated to take advantage of free air time. Others are afraid of hard hitting questions too, which is why you never see Sanders or Clinton on Fox News.

    that is just SO hogwash

    Cruz is not afraid of answering questions. give me a break. the reason Fox doesn't want Cruz to win is that his fair tax proposal would cut out unfair tax loopholes for the rich. Fox is a big business...


    whhhhaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa



    the poor things.. they may have to do without, like the middle class have been for years (forced to pay all the taxes the gov can force on them)

    If Cruz were to win... OMG!

    Jesus said if you have what you need, to be content with that.

    pigs at the trough of life.. well, that probably doesn't impress Him, eh?

    hannity has become one long Trump-mercial :(


    at the end of the day, when you are tired and want to forget.. just about everything that happened during the day... you just really don't want to listen to that dude (DumbOld Grump) . but then some of us don't want to listen to him at the beginning of the day either.. even when we are refreshed.. b/c soon we will not be feeling refreshed anymore .. just really BAD... :(


    vote for Ted Cruz

    Hated, your posts are all off topic here. This is about real addiction not your rantings about how you can't stand Trump, Fox News excetera. Try putting all these things in the political Forum where they belong.

    I'm now addicted to coffee :)

    a huge improvement, i have to say, to other past addictions.

    I like coffee, but am not addicted to it. One cup in the mornings, that's it.

    The Bible teaches us about moderation in all things, and it's best that we learned that early on and not get bound by any one particular thing. I say this to myself as much as to anyone else.

    I'm addicted to Jesus, which highly annoys everyone around me..

    because they don't seem to like Him much.

    but

    Jesus said there'd be days like this (months, years... decades)

    Espresso. But coffee is good too.

    Did you know coffee has a lot more anti-oxidants in it than some other supposedly healthy foods?

    All news can be addicting. Better to step outside in God's fresh air and breathe. Being thankful of the glorious world we live in created by HIM.
