    Doesn't anyone remember the riots at the 68 DNC or Kent State and the election of George Bush over Al Gore.

    As far as I know, no other country's interfered with us.

    What would the turmoil in the 60's and early 70's across the US looked like with 24 hr news coverage.

    I am having a problem with the selective coverage that we as people seem to have concerning 'what is the news' and 'how we value' 'the news'.

    We seem to make the not so important 'important' and keep what is seemingly more important at bay. Is our understanding of news simply by what we can capitalize on or by what is felt by someone with the money to say this or that and call it news.

    1. We seem to be worrying about others more than what is happening in our own Country, State, Government(s). With much attention what is happening else where.

    2. We as people complain about what is happening to our businesses and history but not doing anything as a group to fix or address.

    What needs to happen, as I have seen just by looking back in America's past is when the chips our down (as they seem to be), we ack like spoiled children and make war with someone so we can feel better about our own lives. And we do this by getting our noses in places that we shouldn't be.

    Just because we (America) seem to be the 'world power' doesn't mean that we should flex our ego, but rather we should shut our mouths and act like the Proud People that have been blessed with what we have and fix our attention(s) on issues we can have a possitive effect on.

    Just ask yourselves this one thing. What has happened differently by watching the news? Simply watching only keeps you one the couch, but doing can actually make history.

    This violence is horrible but not unexpected. I hope the demonstrators can protect themselves – they are at a crossroads right now. I don't know if they can do anything to bring feedom to themselves but our thoughts are with them.
