Why is the Time Magazine cover not in the traditional red frame?

.

Why is the picture all dark and grey?

.

The person of the year shouldnt look all down and depressed...why so serious?

It looks like a funeral picture.

Is something bad going to happen to #44? If you believe in numerology (like 'they' do)...#44 is not a good number.

I tune in to Rush once every couple of weeks to get a chuckle, and he calls them "Low Information Voters", which is right up there with "for those of you in Rio Linda, that means...".

I don't know that picking the other choice would make much difference in the end.  You are not really voting with these parties, you are playing the same game of three card monte, and you can't win three card monte.

I didn't mean to imply that voting for McCain or Romney would have made a significant difference...more along the lines of the fact that Obama doesn't have as much influence as most would think. It's the willful ignorance of the public and the insidious nature of the media that are protecting Obama's virtually unlimited power and feeding his ego. These people have more influence on the decline of the US than Obama.

Edit: Time wants to name the person with the most significant impact on the direction of the world, and I think the Obama voter (supporter - including the media that is suppressing information that makes him look bad) is the most influential.

I'll come back to this thread in 24 hours and I will collect the best replies (there will be many) ... yes ZH is a really good place with great articles day after day but more often than not it's the wit, the repartee and general spot-on remarks by its readers that is the cream on top of the cake.

All the best for 2013 to all (looks like we gonna need it)!

and you know what francis, if anyone needed more proof that our 2 party system is a fucking joke....if you were on the other team, you would be raising hell about this...but crickets....hell when i played little league and the other team had a big kid that dominated, our coaches demanded proof of his age...see that is how the "other" team should react.....so other than being a thousand other reasons why they are a hoax, this point seems to be the easist in trying to convince the sheep.....but sheep usually just hold their ears and run away...they would just rather believe, its so much easier....my son is to graduate h.s this year and he has such a difficult time and he hates going, because if you're sheep you're an outcast, and these fucking programmers, i mean teachers help promote this despicable thought process...

In the end... Notwithstanding the absurdity of the Birth Certificate situation... It IS useful to some degree... It's a barometer... It's a piece of litmus paper...

IOW ~ it has it's use in determining whether, in conversation. a person is worth your time or not... I'm done trying to 'change people's minds' about:

-  9/11

- Obama's Birth Certificate

- Why it's odd that this country is less than 2% jews, yet they control the majority of mass media production & distribution, banking, & political activism

- Why they should buy gold, or food, or ammo

They get it or they don't... But 'situations' like that are useful because their POV is highly radioactive & thus moves the needle of the 'SHEEP-O-METER'...

On CNN, a Time spokesperson said it was a "safe choice".  Does that mean it saves the Time staff from being rounded up and put into camps?

Have you seen Time lately? It's like 20 pages long. Time, Newsweek, Network news, they're all dying. The only people who read/watch their news from those sources are those over 40 years old. And every year the cut-off line moves to a higher age. Younger people do not get their news from the MSM, and there is no way for the MSM to get them back. As soon as the "greatest" generation dies off, the MSM is done.
