Well over 500,000 people died of cancer last year just in the United States. Not much notice of it without digging.

Imagine the headlines if it spreads to her butt!

Only idiots watch TV. Did you see that thing on TV last night?
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

That's a trick question. If I say yes, then in your mind I am an idiot. Fear not, I read about it.

I have been saying for years that we need a "Good news" paper.

I met a man once. He had served some time in prison for Grand Theft Auto. When he came out he started a program for high school kids. The program was part homework time, part special events, and part "learn from my bad experiences." He wanted to keep the kids from making the mistakes he made.

To me that is more newsworthy than a lot of the bull that we see or read about today. I also think that this is not a unique story. So... Where is the good news?

I keep it simple...

I don't watch or read any news.

Well, if you believe them ...

I have a feeling some of their positive news would induce stress triggered aneurysms in some here.

All main media was bought up by the Rockefeller gang a long time ago because they were getting a bad press. Why not start your own news business if you don't like it?

If you don't follow the news, you're uninformed.

If you do follow the news, you're misinformed.

Why watch the news when you can simply watch everybody argue about it here on Not Very Magical, still...

I'm glad more and more people are realizing that the media is NOT news.

Here is some criteria for news to be news:

Truthful, fair, honest, unbiased.

Let's see who passes the above test:

CNN? Fail.
Fox? Fail.
ABC? Fail.
NBC? Fail.
CBS? Fail.
New York Times? Fail.
Los Angeles Times? Fail.
Any other major media company? Fail.

How about these?
Republican party? Fail.
Democratic party? Fail.

I used to always vote either Republican or Democrat. No more. They are just another set of lying media organizations.

This is still the greatest country in the world, because we have more independence than anywhere else. That is why I own my own company, I make my own decisions, I don't follow any lying media organization, I have been very successful, and I'm enjoying life!

Not according to most studies I've seen, but that's okay as long as you feel good. I'll stay where I am, and we'll both be happy. Smile

Sort of depends what you mean by freedom, or which freedoms you value more. In some ways yes; in some ways no.

But... living in Southern California, I'll enjoy the sunshine.

You have the sunshine, I certainly grant you that.

Actually, we also get a lot of sunshine here in Calgary. Blue skies nearly every day.

It's just that our sunshine up here is so darn COLD. Smile
