Jerry, this was stupid and embarassing the other three times you posted it on this thread. Don't you have any pride?

I have to deal with people like this, I am all for the belief system, but they always want to turn this around and make it look like you are on the bad side, this is just emotional folly, and just know what you believe.

They're not "liberal" channels, they are all owned by free-enterprise loving, top 2% taxpaying capitalist corporations who are interested in a continuing stream of revenues and profits.

Do they care about us? As people, no.

They wouldn't like it if we tuned out---it would hurt the ratings and profits.
