AllTime10s, you contradicted yourself. In your "Ten Urban Myths That Are True", you say that Santa was green before Coca-Cola. What's going on? Please explain.

Its stations like Fox that make me think twice about freedom of speech.

Nevertheless, isn't this stuff libel? Calling the president racist and all that?

Before I make this lengthy comment, I want to say that I do not support the flight of the Confederate flag. This is how I respond to the way Cenk talked and responded to the governor's comments in the debate. Cenk/TYT, I really hope you take the time to read this.

So Cenk starts off the video with the fact that the Confederacy rebelled against and betrayed the union. WHOA. Would you say that the Americans betrayed Britain? No you'd say that America fought against Britain for freedom. This was the premise of the Civil War, the freedom of choice.

Also, you say that flying the Confederate flag symbolizes that the governor supports slavery. You're drawing hyperbolic conclusions. You have to understand, people of the South did not see slavery (Civil War era, obviously) as unfair treatment of a people; they saw it as an ASSET TO THEIR ECONOMY. It was their culture, and though it was very wrong, they didn't go into the war wanting to fight the union for trying to take away their right to oppress and enslave a race; they went into it wanting to fight for their fiscal and economic security.

However, I agree that it needs to go, because of the disconnect between the supporters and the non supporters. The supporters support it for heritage purposes - retire it to the history books, and maybe fly a flag with Robert Lee's picture on it, or a flag that says something that thanks Robert Lee, or just something along these lines. When something offends a large group of people and the large group of people, though they might not be a majority, have a solid premise for their argument (eg; having it as a TOPIC OF POLITICAL DEBATE), it needs to be taken down.

All in all, the Confederate flag should be taken down, and stay alive in the books, because it sends the wrong message to many, and it could be argued that the "many" are misinterpreting the message. However, the large disconnect between people like Cenk and people who support the flight of the Confederate flag causes misinterpretation on the side of people like Cenk, in the case of this video, which I wanted to correct with this comment.

I feel like MinutePhysics is asking for controversy here. This isn't Physics, it's philosophy. I think that either way, atheist, agnostic, or religious, our life is a gift. If you're religious, you believe it's a gift from God. If you're atheist, you believe it's just a coincidence from the universe. Either way, it's great that we are here, and no one's complaining about that.

What the hell? How is grandmothers smoking pot "hilariously adorable"? Okay, I get that TYT being progressive makes them support the legalization of marijuana (which I disagree with as well, but anyways), but this is over the top! If someone supports smoking, they don't go around making videos of people smoking for the first time and calling it 'hilariously adorable". Whether you support its legalization or not, it's unhealthy and should not be encouraged, the same way tobacco and alcohol shouldn't. Grow up TYT.

"The Republicans didn't ruin the economy, they saved the economy"

Are you kidding me? Bill Clinton, a democrat, ended his presidency with the country being in a surplus, and with (relative) world peace.

George Bush, a republican, decided to send people checks since we had a surplus and decrease taxes to the rich. Oh, and he started a war that was unnecessary (Iraq). Oh, don't forget that completely mismanaged war either (Afghanistan), both of which PLUNGED our country into trillions of dollars of debt. Yet Obama is somehow blamed for it. People a hundred years from now will laugh at us for thinking that. The financial crisis that Van Buren inherited from Jackson comes to mind.

Never say that the Republicans didn't ruin the economy. And never EVER say that Republicans saved it.
