    I ask because it's usually something like that which causes outbursts like this, needless to say I dissagree completely.

    Political Beliefs: Conservative on economics, liberal on social issues, pragmatist on foreign policy. According to those matrix tests, I score high on individual freedom and economic freedom, very low on authoritarianism and managed economics. Either a small-c conservative or a classical liberal, depending on who wants to do the defining.

    Political beliefs: Leftist. I'm the kind of person who the moment he walked into Utah would have people screaming 'damn liberal' at him.

    Largest news source: The .Org and the interbutts, obviously

    TV News: Up until recently, BBC News 24. Now i watch the awful news on Aus TV, which is rather lacking.

    Newspapers: A dire paper called 'The Advertiser'. I only get it for the jobs section. It's World News section consists of 3 pages on average. I used to get 'The Times', which was an okay paper.

    Political Beliefs: A bit right of center, or a classical liberal in the sense Lemur used the term.

    I catch the news from BBC from time to time. Lately I've been a bit lazy and just looked through some internet news cites. Back when I interned for my country's State Department, I had access to translations of newspapers around the world (one of the jobs was translating the ones in the country I was in). I loved reading them, but can't access them from civilian computers and am not working for the government anymore.

    When I'm not being lazy, I get news from NPR (National Public Radio) and both local and national papers.

    News source:

    TV2 and NRK news mostly. SPACE.com is also an awesome news source.

    Also read Bergens Tidende (paper) on a daily basis (always some interesting background information on hot topics).

    There, but for the grace of God, goes John Bradford

    My aim, then, was to whip the rebels, to humble their pride, to follow them to their inmost recesses, and make them fear and dread us. Fear is the beginning of wisdom.

    I am tired and sick of war. Its glory is all moonshine. It is only those who have neither fired a shot nor heard the shrieks and groans of the wounded who cry aloud for blood, for vengeance, for desolation.

    Lefties blaming jews for everything, what else is new?

    So Frag you are obviously unaware of Vanguard news , which is ironic since your topics are often the same topics that they rant about .

    OK perhaps you misunderstood one of their page banners I used concerning followers of Judaism , I could give you one they use about Islam instead you might like it .....but hey one banner sums up their mentality "Right and White"

    I would bet that you are the only one on these forums that would actually read that on a regular basis.
    Possibly , but given the number of posters who have actually posted links from racist hate sites to support their views I wouldn't really say that I was the only one to read such things regularly . Though of course unlike those that read and post the links to support their views , I read it to see how much nonsense they are spouting and how soon someone here spouts the same nonsense .
