Maybe you should actually open the dictionary instead of just propping your bong on it.
Recent criticism of the use of myriad as a noun, both in the plural form myriads and in the phrase a myriad of, seems to reflect a mistaken belief that the word was originally and is still properly only an adjective. As the entries here show, however, the noun is in fact the older form, dating to the 16th century. The noun myriad has appeared in the works of such writers as Milton (plural myriads) and Thoreau (a myriad of), and it continues to occur frequently in reputable English. There is no reason to avoid it.
http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/myr...
Traditionally "of" should not follow "myriad."

Let's keep it simple stupid__the founder of the modern conservative movement William F Buckley Jr. would never have used "of" after myriad or "a" before it.

Buckley would have said that (so and so) uses myriad names while posting on topix daily.

Now run along so and so.

“God bless you, Mr. President”

That is your viewpoint.

The law is they do have tax-exempt status and the IRS cannot target them for either their philosophy or political believes.

On the day the bill was introduced into the Senate that would eliminate oil subsidies, Mitch McConnell's campaign fund received over $131,00.00 in donations from the oil industry. Three days later the bill had been killed through a filibuster.
The truth is that the oil and gas industry receives the same kinds of tax treatments that every other manufacturing or extractive industry receives in the federal tax code. There is nothing uncommon or out of the mainstream of tax treatments about any of the provisions that have been repeatedly proposed for repeal.

So how did all of this misinformation get started? It all began in 2009. Within days of being sworn in as the nation’s 44th President, Barack Obama ordered his staff to scour the tax code for any provision that was relevant to the oil and gas industry, and promptly began proposing them for repeal. The oil and gas industry has always been an easy target for political demagoguery, and that dynamic has played out repeatedly and consistently in this Administration.

Unfortunately, most media outlets and reporters have chosen to basically repeat the Administration’s mantra that these tax treatments – several of which have been in the tax code for almost a century – are somehow unique, specific to the oil and gas industry, and are “subsidies” for “big oil”. A great example of just how inaccurate this depiction is applies to Percentage Depletion, which has been a feature of the tax code since 1913, meaning it will be a full century old this year.

Basically, Percentage Depletion is the oil and gas industry’s version of a depreciation deduction for its main asset, which is the oil and natural gas in the ground, commonly known as its reserves. Every industry of any kind is allowed a depreciation deduction on its assets under the U.S. Tax Code, but, far from being a “subsidy” for “big oil”, this tax treatment was in fact repealed for all integrated oil companies, i.e., ExxonMobil, Shell, BP, etc., in 1975, and is today available only to independent producers and royalty owners. So repeal of this extremely long-standing, completely common tax treatment would have no effect on “big oil” at all, and would in fact hit small producers and royalty owners harder than anyone else.

Offense taken. Especially since Realtime - who claims to have "set me straight" - apparently believes ALL black colleges in the United States admit all races.

Not to mention the number of times myself and others have had to "set him straight" on current events in just the past month.

So that would make you and Realtime dumb and dumber.

you're one to be talking about comprehension.

what i don't get is the wingnut refusal to acknowledge that there is nothing new going on. not our fault that people just expected Bush to do the same.

but now it's all...OMG! OMG! OMG! SCANDAL!!!

What do you think about the IRS demanding a conservative group to commit to not protest?
Do you think the IRS has the legal right to demand any organization to give up their free speech rights?

if it interferes with tax laws.....yes.

but i know how it is. Bush gave right wing churches a pass while he went after those that wouldn't play the war game, so i can feel your Obama pain.

what? like you thought that wouldn't change?
