Hey,'ya know what, nac, never mind. I was right in the beginning, you're just another right-wing nut case. Have fun with all your tin-hat conspiracies. Nothing new; same junk on Beck and Limbaugh, et al.
And I was right about you... you have nothing intelligent to contribute, don't like to be confronted with facts, so you resort to childish name-calling. What a surprise!

Thats what liberals do. When the debate gets into specifics, and a point is brought to the argument that makes their side look terrible, they simply dismiss the facts, obfuscate the reality, and then attack the messenger. Thats when you know you have won the point being debated. If it's a matter of real importance to the left, then they will assemble their bully crowd to drown out any opposition with a concert of ignorant voices and a collection of human shields standing behind them. After all, who wants to find themselves isolated and attacked by a mob, whether it is figuratively, or literally?

We had to endure the lefts attacks for the last year that one of the main reasons that we needed to re-elect the current Liar in Chief was because Romney was selfish and cheap with all that money he has. Obviously the Romney's are wealthier then the Obama's, because he is way smarter then Barry, but the president obviously shares that same penchant for greed with his desire to keep his "fair share" of what he earned last year. Barry and Michelle only paid 18.4% of their income to the government in taxes for last year, when they should have paid over 30%. Not to worry about such petty details or hypocrisy though, because the left only wants us to pay attention to the lip service coming out of the liars mouth, not pay attention to the actions. It reminds me of the old saying, "What are you going to believe, the words from my mouth, or what your eyes see is reality?" In other words, do as the president says, not as the president does. Two fundraisers, two rounds of golf, a couple of luncheons, and dinners in just the last week. When does this "leader" have any time for himself? How many of you vacation separately from your wife and kids, a couple of times a year?

And what "facts" are you talking about? The crap you listed are called beliefs. They are things you "believe" and, as I said, they are all fox talking points and haven't any proof to point to or you would.

Blah, blah, blah. So where are your FACTS? You guys are truly hilarious. You accuse everyone who disagrees with you of the very thing you are guilty of. Full of opinions and beliefs but NO FACTS.

The Republicans trash the economy, blame Obama and then sit on their hands and refuse to participate in fixing their mess. FACT.

Hey, right-wing goose-steppers, here is a FACT. Meaning it can be verified. It's not something I believe or deduce, it's a fact:

Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson says women getting the vote “one of the greatest mistakes America made”

Peterson heads a conservative group and is an occassional guest on Sean Hannity's Fox News program

Everything I said is well documented and widely known. You don't like it, so you call it a "belief."

Some of us, joe, believe the truth. You may choose not to, that's your right.

Sorry, nac. Everything you've posted is an opinion and is ONLY widely believed by nut cases like you. And worse, it's not even your opinion, it's the right wing noise machine's propaganda that you believe. Making you, I guess, a "faith-based" stooge.

Here some right wing "beliefs":

Man-made global warming is a hoax.

Corporations don't need to be regulated.

The economy is driven by investors not by demand.

God wrote the Bible.

The rich deserve lower tax rates than the non-rich.

Anyone who is poor is so because they're lazy.

President Obama is a: socialist, nazi, communist, Muslim, going to take your gun, wants to won your children, is satan, etc., etc., etc., ad nauseam.

Voter fraud is rampant.

Sex education causes pregnancy.

Women SHOULD be paid 77% of men.

Women should not have rights over their bodies.

Money is more important than people.

The planet is 6,000 years old.

I could go on for quite awhile but will merely point out that the world the righties believe in looks very similar to the Middle Ages.

As is your custom, you brought up a host of nonsense that I did not say, while ignoring everything I did say.

If "everything I wrote is opinion," feel free to refute it with facts. But pulling unrelated deflections out of your azz does not refute my points, nor does it add substance to the conversation. Frankly it only makes you somehow look even more like a petulant child.

I've explained this to you before, and you didn't understand it... I'll explain it again, even though I have no reason to believe it this time:

The fact that I'm not "left wing," does not make me "right wing." As far as I'm concerned, both of those wings have gotten us into the mess we are in. While its true that I've never voted for a democrat for president, it's also true that I've never voted for a republican either.

To me, dems are arguing that 1 + 1 = 3 while the reps are arguing that 1 + 1 = 1.

Just because I can see that YOUR math doesn't add up, doesn't mean I agree with the other idiot with bad math that fights with you. I have the ability to think for myself. You should try it some time.

And still you won't answer.
