    Original message Five seconds of Fox News


    So I watched Fox News today for the first time in over six years (apart from a few select clips online). I used to watch it periodically, because one has to keep an eye on the fascists. (Yes, one must...) I'm living in Argentina at the moment, actually kind of in exile here because I married a woman from Argentina and I don't meet the U.S.'s financial requirements for sponsoring an immigrant spouse. (Translation - I'm a Libtard Loser.) So here I've been stuck for the last six years. Anyway, I recently switched internet and cable services, and this one has Fox News.

    So what did I see in the first five seconds of watching Fox? Headlines: tornado, serial killer, missing blond girl. Crawler: Qaddafi is using cluster bombs in civilian areas. Cluster bombs are banned in most countries. (No mention of the U.S. and Israel, who also use cluster bombs on cities). Teaser: Are unions to blame for air traffic controllers falling asleep on the job? And they scoffed at the idea that more staff would help that problem. And then Mike Huckabee came on and said it's pointless to tax rich people 'cause they're just too smart for it, those slippery richies! Better to just institute a fair tax at point of purchase! (By the way, one of the worst things about living here in Argentina is the 21% VAT that stuck around after being implemented during the military dictatorship.)

    Can't stop the crazy 'cause the crazy don't stop.

    Hard to get new blood over there. The "Troll Hunters" keep tagging them, and they get tomb-stoned before they know it.

    He better be careful, the VAT tax is one of the lefts favorite methods of stealing taxpayer money. We wouldn't want ol' Capitalocracy getting the dreaded pizza.
    I long for the days when our President actually liked our country.

    19. You don't "meet the U.S.'s financial requirements for sponsoring an immigrant spouse" WTF?!

    The gov't "of the people, by the people, and for the people" has established a financial "test" for who you can marry and bring home?

    That's the damnedest thing I ever heard of. It's outrageous.

    Who ever decided that an American can be "too poor" to bring back their husband or wife?

    It's ungodly.

    16. Oh, I can be married to her...

    she just doesn't get to go to the U.S. unless I have an income of at least $18,213/year (2009 guidelines). That's more than I've ever made in my life, even though it's not really a living wage. I've always been relatively poor.
    I think that's about what I made while I was in college full-time.

    He seems to relish telling of his relative poverty. I'll bet his wife didn't know he was such a loser and will dump his sorry low wage butt if she can get her and her marriage prospects improve. Love don't last long in low rent housing.
