Just out of curiosity, what is huffingtonpost? Is it a left leaning newspaper? Or would the fair minded individual consider it a fairly objective news source? Or is that just the wrong question to ask?

It used to be more to the left, now it tends to be Obama-ish. It's not a newspaper, it's a series of columns by people who are no longer paid, run by the wealthy (and former virulent right-winger) Ariana Huffington.

So Ariana Huffington converted to liberalism and abandoned the right?

So she says. She was married to a very wealthy right-wing guy who IIRC was having gay affairs while married to her. She has since divorced him.

You have to understand that landmark's definition of left leaning is quite different than just about anyone else's definition here. If you like Obama or the Clinton's landmark considers you a right winger. Please take that into account when reading anything he might say about whether a group or person is liberal or leftist.

It used to be more to the left but now it tends to be Obama-ish? Are you kidding? Obama is the most far left president in the history of our country. Yikes, you can't get any more left than him. Come on landmark, I don't like to engage in these things anymore, but to suggest that Obama isn't far left is simply absurd. And that's ok, btw, a position is a position and I respect them all, but let's at least be realistic about the position.

As you stand there quibbling over whether the messenger is left or right, the rich are still robbing you left right and centre don't you know. Which is a clue to how they do it.

Well, Tommy, as the only one who understands how it all works, don't you think you owe it to the rest of us to do something about it?

No.
