    those marriage docs are linked somewhere in this thread. that was a long time ago and she still probably hasn't been investigated.
    The potential issues stemming from the marriage were immigration fraud, then welfare fraud and student loan fraud.

    that depends on what u mean.... What i saw was more than enough to convince me that bro/sis marriage occured(and likely any other reasonable person who read it). Whether or not all sufficient evidence exists to convict her of immigration fraud is a good question you may be right about

    Just curious...do you think that is a function of huge corporations owning large swaths of the media? Is it really beneficial to the country if a relatively small number of corporate entities (that have no connection to the communities they serve) control the messages we hear in the media - whether it be TV, Radio, or newspaper. Tell you the truth, I miss the days of the locally owned paper that used to exist in every city in town. It was always fun to travel and pick up the local paper and immediately get a feel for the place you are visiting.

    This conversation got me thinking today...especially with the toxic nature of Trump. I think instead of saying Fake News I might start saying Clickbait News. That's probably a more accurate term and avoids the same branding that the Chief ******* Officer In Charge uses. I love our local news stations. We dumped cable several years ago and its so nice not being able to stumble upon FoxNews, CNN, or MSNBC. There's still tons of crap on regular TV, but it narrows it down.

    Unfortunately companies like Sinclair are buying up locals as well and pushing nationwide agenda.

    New ‘Purity Test’ Tool to Scan Hollywood Scripts For ‘Diversity Bias’
    Chilling echoes of Soviet realism.Called ‘Spellcheck for Bias’, the tool was developed by the Davis’ Institute on Gender in Media and USC’s Viterbi School of Engineering. It is set to be implemented by Universal Pictures, DreamWorks Animation, Focus Features and NBC Entertainment within the near future.
    n order to entrench loyalty to the Communist Party and advance a utopian image of Soviet society, “The purpose of socialist realism was to limit popular culture to a specific, highly regulated faction of emotional expression that promoted Soviet ideals.”

    Yes but it is actually a lack of morals and a love for money and power that drives it. Cons and libs are stuck between their own thoughts on this. We can ensure the press unguided as a constitutional thing or we can usurp the constitution and ban the corporate takeover of the media, it would require both to stop it, with a requirement for factual truth.

    To be fair, it apparently also makes the liberal elites appear to be every bit as idiotic as those they are hunting. Nevertheless, if those being hunted were a racial minority, the world would have exploded when this movie came out....

    This 1998 article, originally printed in the Indianapolis Star pretty much sums up the shambles we are in today ---
    https://www.loriborgman.com/1998/03/15/the-death-of-common-sense/

    There have been later edited versions of it that have gone viral online, and it was once even falsely attributed to George Carlin, but this is the original.

    I watched this a couple nights ago. It is not all conservative bashing at all. Both ideologies get roasted pretty soundly. In fact while they do make fun of conservative stereotypes, the liberal characters are the ones who are actually presented as "evil".
