    First of all, Voice of America isn't really for US citizens. It's for the rest of the world, and that actually makes it more propagandistic. It's harder, in a bipartisan democratic republic, to attempt some kind of domestic propaganda, then it is to spread propaganda abroad.

    But I admit it would happen to some extent. With that, I'll have you know that I think our private, corporate broadcasters are loaded with propaganda. So if it's a choice between eductional propaganda, and uneducational propaganda, I'll go with the fomer.

    Are you kidding? Have you never heard of the sugar beet, one of the biggest commercial crops in the American midwest? Are you not aware of the amount of sugar cane grown in south Florida?

    Okay, Hap, we'll need at least four dozen fudge brownies. Can you do those?

    Interesting premise. I would say it probably makes it more obviously propagandistic.

    Too bad Beyonce herself disagrees with you about his "honest" actions.

    We have to protect our vulnerable fledgling industries, companies like Monsanto.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."
