Here goes Sadin AGAIN promoting a candidate for no apparent reason (but we do understand why, we really do) and passing the info off as "news." T This is another reason why our country is so screwed up...surreptitious and personal use of the media to promote personal candidacies. With "journalists" like this guy PATCH is quickly becoming a SuperPac-like instrument for the distribution of partisianship favoring Democrats...and more. The "free press" at work in America..hahahahaha! Here's an example of how such political lies and propoganda begin with "journalists" who pass themselves off as professionals, but in reality are nothing more than mouthpieces for their personal "causes" trying to wrap their opinions in "news" items like the one about Ilya. Shame on him. Sadin is just trying his "magic" for Ilya like a shaman. Journalism ???????? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CYIKw91sAWE Sadin is another example of this...making it seem so innocent. He, Ilya and Marshall are the same in so many ways. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HC3H8EuqH0k

This monstrosity currently occupying the once venerated White House is the most arrogant entity who ever squatted there. It doesn't take much to hear how often he says things like "my Cabinet," "they should bring a plan to me," "my staff," my-this and my-that and on and on. He is nothing but a cheap Chicago politician who was NEVER known for anything as a state senator or as a US Senator...except speechifying with teleprompters, that's all. Hollywood glitz and no substance or products. The guy's on a perpetual vacation commanding thousands to cater to his travel whims and the royal vacations of Queen Michele and her family. His financial plans? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J6TcpfBHlbs&list=PLF1E3F02E17576296&index=46&feature=plpp_video The media, however, occasionally accidently shows the "quality" of his supporters. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-88Il-4nby0&feature=autoplay&list=PLF1E3F02E17576296&lf=plpp_video&playnext=1 and their expectations http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=381gFG4Crr8 Who helped Mrs. Hughes? Many of the media "news" items mentioned she got a "free house" but never said from whom. NEVER GET SUCKED IN BY A NEW ARTICLE ON POLITICS. http://www.mahalo.com/henrietta-hughes/

Define "fair." Tax politicians at 99%, lobbyists at 98% and Democrats (who want to help everybody but the working stiffs of the US) at 247.93% .

More than being a commie, this Obamanation is merely a boytoy for the big money interests, Saul Alinsky look-a-likes, the loony left and some of the PATCH "journalists." I shall now deliver my State of the Union: Patriots! The goof in the White House has screwed up America. He wants teamwork but only if he is the captain of the team, or as the arrogant fraud would say..."MY TEAM." End of the State of the Union.

Of course, Whiny, of course. "These people" would be those who attack school board members regardless of the topic of the conversation just in order to attack. Now, please return the favor by answering my question.
