Five stars for accuracy and a thumbs down for what that says about our society.

    "Our" chief tool? Who is this private organtization called the Council on Foreign Relations that 'they' would dictate US-Iraq military action? Beware the CFR.
     -- E Archer, NYC     
    Television is the chief tool in brainwashing and driving the herd. Who is the CFR? Why, the puppet-masters, of course. Beware the CFR (worth repeating, Archer) as well as the other nefarious NGO's.

    And television is now promoting race-mixing, homosexuality, and the dumbing down of our weakened populace of today.
     -- JT Ready, Mesa, AZ     
    Time Magazine,Washington Post, and The New York Times, along with the television are all feeding us lies about the war in Iraq.
     -- George Vernon     
    You can't give a thumbs down for telling the truth. Don't shoot the messenger applies here.
