Barack Obama, our next President

Dave's attempt to save Sonic's stupidity at claiming he was half everything.
He thinks because you have a variety of objects with two characteristics each that it equals the ability to have numerous halves.
Then he gets all pissed when it is pointed out there still is only two options per object not countless ones.
So..you've met dumbass dave.

He'll hide the public works under "Homeland Security/Defense" so as to fool his tea party base into approving Immigration reform because nothing is more popular than God than "Defense".:-D
The Corker Amendment, or other "border security" measures, is unacceptable unless proof of control of illegal immigration precedes legalization.

Dumb Dave is arguing it is mathematically possible to have more than two halves.
So there, you are wrong Eman when you challenged Sonic that you can only be half twice.
Actually, sonic CAN be half more than twice. He's proven it on these very pages. Obviously, dumbass dave doesn't read his posts.

Sonic, how do you feel about being ignored by dumbass dave?

Not the responsible ones. If you want to solve that problem, set up some qualifications at emergency rooms. You come to an emergency room with a cold, you get sent to the private walk in clinic that depends on customer payments. You idiots redefined what an "emergency" room is. Stupid ewes!
Exactly, but the hospital must be given immunity from lawsuits.

"flack"
Do not question "real dumb"!!! Basketball is like every thing else he knows all, he loves the way basketball at the professional level has deteriorated. His rules;
- A ball is thrown to a player he slaps it down, regains control, and then dribbles again. That is double dribble, but not in the NBA
- Pick up your pivot foot, take another step or two and then put the ball on the floor, that is traveling, but not in the NBA
- Get bumped, flop, get a call on the other team, you did your job
- The man you are guarding gets a step on you, either grab him or give him a hip or a knee to slow him down that is basketball in "real dumb's" world
- Make a slam dunk over an opponent you slammed into, then pull your jersey out of your shorts and pound your chest demean your opponent, the NBA mantra.

First off Carol many of these groups especially Tea Party groups aren't conservatives. Barry Goldwater was a conservative as was Everett Dirksen, Jack Kemp Ronald Reagan, Dwight Eisenhower and Bob Dole. The current crop in the house like Erik Cantor, Paul Ryan, Louis Gomert and Michelle Bachman are radical right wingers. Testimony has already established that the employees in the Cincinnati office overwhelmed with 501 applications sought some way to separate the wheat from the chaff.
And yes we do need to fear these shadowy right wing organizations that want to turn this country into a corporate plutocracy. They want to reduce the American workforce to wage slaves solely to line their own already bulging pockets. They use fools like you, pandering to your irrational fears and bigotry to further their ends.
Dwight Eisenhower was an independent, not a Republican.

Everett Dirksen and Bob Dole were good men, middle-of-the-road Republicans, but unfortunately content to go along with Democrats as a permanent minority. Just like McCain and Romney.

Today, they would just give the ball to Lebron at the top of the key and let him bull his way to the basket for a slam dunk, without the need to dribble.
Entertaining, but not basketball.

Close but not exactly correct. Lebron would get the ball take 2 maybe 3 steps and then put the ball on the floor before he runs over someone and slams the ball.

NBA games would be more interesting if they just played the fourth quarter, the only time any effort is exerted.

LOS ANGELES – Actor Jeff Daniels, star of the HBO political drama series "The Newsroom," appeared on Chris Matthews' "Hardball" show on MSNBC on Thursday. During the interview, Matthews expressed his admiration for the Aaron Sorkin drama, in which Daniels plays anchor Will McAvoy.

"It's the most organic show I've ever watched, it seems to come out of itself every week, it seems to grow like a human being," Matthews enthused. "That's what makes it so unpredictable and so fascinating to people."

The news host went on to praise the cast, including Emily Mortimer and Jane Fonda, before closing out that they keys to the show are "honesty" and giving audiences "something to take away."

Matthews happily mentioned his son Thomas has an acting role on the show, but what he failed to disclose is that he is also a paid contributor. The Hollywood Reporter revealed this week that the MSNBC host, along with the likes of former CNN president Rick Kaplan and anchor Ashleigh Banfield, cash "Newsroom" checks.

"Matthews hilariously praised the show’s 'honesty' during his five-and-a-half minutes with Daniels, but never once did he admit that he is one of the 13 paid consultants working 'to make season two as realistic as possible,'" said Dan Gainor, VP of Business and Culture at the Media Research Center. "Apparently, Matthews never heard that honesty is the best policy."

Media critic and author John Ziegler said Matthews will simply "get away with it because no one on the left will call him on it and his audience won't ever even know there was an issue."

Communications pro Glenn Selig concurred it was quite a misstep. "Chris Matthews has a vested interest in seeing the show succeed, because he is making money, and because his son in on the show," Selig said. "There is no doubt that he should have disclosed that information to the public. The fact that he did not, makes it appear as though he is trying to hide something. It comes across as sneaky."

A rep for MSNBC did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
