Comment: This restaurant plays FOX News (or FAUX Noise) station 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. If asked to change it, they will tell you that it has to stay on that station because if they "change it for one, they have to change it for everybody". That's a bunch of BS because at the time there was no one else in the restaurant.

If they have to keep it on one station and one station only, I cannot think of a more controversial, divisive, and offensively lying station than FAUX Noise, not even Al Jazeera. I don't like to hear it because of my religious sensibilities - "Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor." Plus, I don't want to have to have a fist-fight because I have to openly point out where the lies are (another requirement of my religious sensibilities).

If you are going to have a default channel where the station stays forever, then you can do much better than the FAUX Noise, perhaps something more family oriented and that everyone can watch peacefully like Disney or the Cartoon Network.

Yeaaaaa!!! Bravo!!!! Thankfully my local McD's franchise owner doesn't have the same policy.

If I ever run across the same problem, I will copy and paste your letter...even though I'm not religious. Nice work dude.

The Death of the Middle Class was by Design...

Even in the face of the so-called Recovery, poverty and inequality are getting worse in our country, and more wealth and power is flowing straight to the top. According to Paul Buchheit over at Alternet, this is the end result of winner-take-all capitalism, and this destruction of the working class has all been by design.
