    I still do not understand why CNN hired a Brit. I really don't care about his qualifications. They should have hired an American journalist who knows America. I'm sure there are hundreds of American journalists that could have been hired to replace Mr King.
    I for one will not watch and hope all Americans tune him out. Maybe CNN will learn a lesson.

    My question is how many ugrnsiips is it going to take to change the opinions and the greed of the mass consumer class?, gimme gimme gimme has been the catch cry for thousands of years, class has absolutely nothing to do money and vice versa.How many tsunami's and earth quakes does it take to change a mentality?I guess I will answer it myself, one strong brave individual at a time, that has the nouse backbone, and impetus to stand up to the very very boring status quo.I think people should flood the parliaments worldwide,with personal manifesto's (Tastefully done my dear's of course ) they would soon get sick of shredding lol and maybe actually open one.A manifesto Tsunami !!!cheers
