    Need some help. (Yes, you do...) My household is short on food money - we have an idea but need info. I know

    that some of you watch shows on the internet. We are going to get rid of our Direct TV etc. if I can find a way to watch the following shows on internet. Do you all have the places I need to go to see them on the internet?

    Countdown with Keith Olberman

    TYT with Cenk

    Rachel Maddow

    Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell

    Ed Schultz

    That is all I watch and I am paying $70+ for it on Direct TV. That is a lot of food for the family.

    Thanks to anyone who can help.

    I can't believe anyone would admit to such a pathetic life. :D
    May the FORCE be with you!

    Maybe your problem is that you watch 5 or 6 hours of television a day.

    Buy a book. Learn a new skill or a new language. Volunteer, work part time. Stop wasting your time in front of the TV.

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
    "Our president delivered his State of the Union message to Congress. That is one of the things his contract calls for -- to tell congress the condition of the country. This message, as I say, is to Congress. The rest of the people know the condition of the country, for they live in it, but Congress has no idea what is going on in America, so the president has to tell 'em." ~ Will Rogers

    "We're just ten dollars away from getting rid of our satellite television so that we can afford to eat!"
    Olde-style, states' rights conservative. Ask if this concept confuses you.

    Man, if that's what you're watching, just subscribe to Mother Jones, and/or strip the end of an extension cord, plug it in, and stick one wire in each ear.
