    Do you think someone / some super secret & powerful cabal is trying to incite a Civil War in the US by pitting hard core Liberals and Conservatives against each other?

    Who stands to gain? What do they stand to gain?

    Thoughts?

    Yes.
    It's called the media.
    The ratings will be great.

    IMO, less than 5% of ppl are actually liberals or conservatives.
    most ppl hate the other side for no real reason. like when our radio guy had us hating O&A and their fans (and leno and imus etc)


    we wised up, but the causal fans didnt, and most ppl are casual fans of politics

    it really probably is the 24 hours news people
    they get everyone all squirrelly

    and the best (not so much) is they spend what appears to be quite a bit of time bickering about one another


    I like that bourdain fella
    and briana kieler is my kinda gal
    beyond that i get most of my news from the paper that dan(guy at work) leaves in the shitter

    No, the range of debate in this country in narrow. The appearance of lively debate isn't the same as a wide range of view points.
