I ran across this and thought that it was just too wonderful not to share.
" On Election day twelve Obama voters were interviewed right after they voted to learn how the news media impacted their knowledge of what occurred during the campaign. These voters were chosen for their apparent intelligence/verbal abilities and willingness to express their opinions to a large audience. The rather shocking video below seeks to provide some insight into which information broke through the news media clutter and which did not."
This site seems to be one that will be ongoing. The video is ten minutes long. I had planned on viewing just a few minutes, but winded up watching the whole thing. OMG! Do these people actually represent the American electorate? For many years after the ratification of the Constitution only white males who were landowners were allowed to vote. Why? Because they could read and had a vested interest in the outcome of elections. Then, slavery was legal in many states and women were considered to have a bit more rights than chattel, thus depriving slaves and women from voting. Today there are no slaves and women are treated, at least in my experience, an equal to myself. Stupidity and a fascination with the MSM must be a factor. Who is to blame? I blame education by the State! Government supported education is designed to teach people what to think, not to educate the person so that they can think for themselves. I'm getting off on a rant. Enough on stupid people and government education. Let me add, though, I believe there is a big difference between someone who can not learn due to a disability, and those who can learn but end up stupid because of the ineffectual and biased education they receive [the interns we get in our office who are majoring in social work are a good example] and do nothing to educate themselves. The former have all the leeway I can give, the latter have none.
For an update and a validation check Ed Morrissey at Hot Air.

Always raise the operative word in any title that a Liberal gives to a program, an act, or a doctrine (etc.) to the power of -1
i.e. from Purplemath.com
A negative exponent just means that the base is on the wrong side of the fraction line, so you need to flip the base to the other side. For instance, "x–1" just means "x1, but underneath, as in 1/(x1)".
Essentially it is the inverse!

Fairness Doctrine ˉ¹ = 1 / Fairness
= Not Fair = Not Fair Doctrine
The Fairness Doctrine is a contrived law to limit free speech on radio stations. It was first enacted in 1949 but took on a new power in 1967 when various provisions were put into the power of the FCC. The intent was to provide for opposing, fair but balanced, views on almost everything. In 1974 the FCC stated that Congress had delegated it the power to mandate a system of "access, either free or paid, for person or groups wishing to express a viewpoint on a controversial public issue..." Orwellian 1984 came early. During Obama's campaign there were hints of re-enacting the Fairness Doctrine. Can you imagine the impact to radio stations when they have to conform to government regulated content? There has been little talk of the Fairness Doctrine re-enforcement since the election. Be suspicious! Every good program has a backdoor. Jim Boulet, Jr. at American Thinker has an understanding of how we will be doomed to repeats of Air America and a squashing of our First Amendment rights. The hell with Air America, I want free speech!!!

Pros: All Weather, Functional, True flight with my rig, Durable, Holds edge well
Best Uses: Hunting
Describe Yourself: Recreational Archer
I have only been shooting for 2 years and took my first deer a few weeks ago in the early archery season here in Western, PA. These broad-heads fly very true when compared to practice tips (field).
The true test was when I sent my arrow through a button-buck diagonally! No bs. He was broadside to me but jumped at my rather loud PSE Nova. I hit him quartering to me (2nd or 3rd rib - right side) and the arrow exited by his left rear hip! My bow is hardly a "super rig" - 260 fps tops with a 60 lbs draw. I bought 3 more the following week.
