Lynda, you mention that you read lots of foreign news sources. As I wrote in my other post that is something I have been doing reguklarly for a few months now. Except for the Guardian in UK, I find most European papers to be of similar bent as the MSM here in US, they all seem only left leaning ,predictable boring propaganda.
Many of the Asian papers seem to report much more objective, more freedom oriented, more free market oriented. If there are a couple of international sources that you could share links (only the best one or two, & I only read english), I would be grateful..............bobford
