Do you ever get the feeling that Tea Party Republicans see the phrase “Ignorance Is Bliss” as a Mission Statement?


The List We Have All Been Waiting For....

I would like nothing more then to sue the Party Of No for my husbands death because they are the reason we and many other Americans do not have Health Care.  I was also (and still am) VERY angry at WebMD!  My husband was always going to that site because we didn't have health insurance and he had convinced himself that he had a Hiatal Hernia because of  information he had gotten from WebMD!  (I never dreamed it was owned by Murdoch so the list has been quite an eyeopener for me and I hope all of my friends will help make this list go viral!)

He died of a massive heart attack caused by a blockage in his heart.  He was 53 years old.  He was in horrible pain June 1st 2011 and wouldn't go to the Dr. because of our lack of insurance.  I told him I didn't think it was a Hiatal Hernia and went to WebMD to check out what it said because he was so convinced.  I was in the computer room and he said "Check out the symptoms" and then I heard the loud crash as he hit the floor, wedged between the bed and a file cabinet, face down.  It was all I could do to turn his face side ways while I called 911.  I will tell the rest of the story at a later date because I feel myself slipping back into the darkness of that hole in my heart again....  -Mem

Want To Block Websites Owned By Rupert Murdoch, There’s An App For That

July 20, 2011

If you are using Google Chrome, there is a new app that will allow you to block all websites owned by News Corp.

Extensions to block undesirable things are on the Internet are nothing new. For years people have been blocking ads or any other Internet annoyances, but Google Chrome is providing users the ability to take their blocking preferences to a whole other level.

If you are sick and tired of Derek Jeter, there is the Jeter Filter.

If the News Corp hacking scandal has so enraged you, or if you are sick of the bias of Fox News and don’t want to add to their profits, there is the Murdoch Block. The app does exactly what its name suggests. It blocks all the websites owned by News Corp from appearing on your browser. The list of blocked websites is customizable in case you want to make sure that you never visit Fox again, but still want your Hulu.

Here is a mostly complete list of all the websites Murdoch’s News Corp owns:

Hulu and WebMD would likely be the most missed sites on that list, but principle involves sacrifice. If you are a Google Chrome user and you want send a message to News Corp, install the Murdoch Block and you can enjoy an Internet experience that is totally free of the influence of Rupert Murdoch.
