These vagaries aren't helping any.

Do you not see the inconsistencies?

I'm not gonna harass you with the results of this probe, I really just want to know what makes y'all tick.

You've caught yourself in posting misinformation. I just want to know if you knew it was misinformation when you posted it, you discovered later that you were wrong but are reluctant to admit it, that you were just passing on misinformation you'd been fed, or is it something else?

Are you aware that the "facts" in your world are different than the facts in the real world?

I know we have a past and I apologize for that, I've been relentless in hounding you. To your credit you've withstood and given back your measure.

I know also that none of the Waxman/Eman morons are capable of any sort of discussion and that leaves you. Because, despite all the faults I think you have you do have the strength to stand your ground and fight your fight.

I'm not trying to have a fight here, I really just want to understand.

<quoted text>You speak of republicans like they're angels or something! Weren't they the same ones that stated publicly that they would do anything to make him a 1 term president? Then, didn't they pledge to Grover Norquist to again impede the progress of anything Obama had going, especially tax reform? Like always, your left eye is blind &,you only see what the right wants you to see!
If only they had succeeded...

This president might be a nice guy and a good father and husband. But he has an agenda that is not in the best interests of this country or the people. His agenda is in the best interest of his party and power and control.

The sooner you realize this, the better.

QE3 Infinity - Ron Paul, Peter Schiff, Ben Bernanke
Watch:


Quote:
A third round of quantitative easing, QE3 was announced on 13 September 2012. In an 11-to-1 vote, the Federal Reserve decided to launch a new $40 billion a month, open-ended, bond purchasing program of agency mortgage-backed securities. Additionally, the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) announced that it would likely maintain the federal funds rate near zero "at least through 2015."[52][53] According to NASDAQ.com , this is effectively a stimulus program which allows the Federal Reserve to relieve $40 billion per month of commercial housing market debt risk.[54] Because of its open-ended nature, QE3 has earned the popular nickname of "QE-Infinity."[55] On 12 December 2012, the FOMC announced an increase in the amount of open-ended purchases from $40 billion to $85 billion per month.

On Wednesday, June 19, 2013 Ben Bernanke announced a "tapering" of some of its QE policies contingent upon continued positive economic data. Specifically, he said it would scale back its bond purchases from $85 billion a month to $65 billion a month during the upcoming September 2013 policy meeting.[57] He also suggested that the bond buying program could wrap up by mid-2014.[58] While Bernanke did not announce an interest rate hike, he suggested that if inflation follows a 2% target rate and unemployment decreases to 6.5% threshold,the Fed would likely start raising rates. The stock markets subsequently dropped approximately 4.3% over three trading days following Bernanke's announcement, with the Dow Jones dropping 659 points between Wednesday, June 19 and Monday, June 24, closing at 14,660 at the end of the day Monday.

<quoted text> Americans in greater numbers disapprove of Republicans in Congress --they are pushing this country way off the track with their obstruction of President Barack Obama's policies which have already been passed in the Congress and upheld by the Supreme Court. We don't need another filibuster and vote to repeal Obamacare, we need action on climate change, job creation , and reducing our overall global military reach that's far too vulnerable to terrorist attack and too expensive to our domestic economic stability and prosperity .ďWhen (Obama) gets away from talking about the economy, numbers have a tendency to slide,Ē Marist Institute for Public Opinion director Lee Miringoff said in a release accompanying the poll.
There is a silver lining in the new numbers for Democrats: Although President Obamaís numbers are sliding, he remains significantly more popular than Republicans in the House of Representatives. In the Marist-McClatchy poll, the House GOPís approval rating sits at a dismal 22 percent, while the Washington Post-ABC News poll finds that 52 percent of Republicans believe that GOP leaders are taking the party in the wrong direction (compared to just 37 percent who say that headed in the right direction). And, unlike President Obama, House Republicans still have to face the voters next November." http://www.nationalmemo.com/polls-obamas-appr...
The presidentís handling of the economy has driven his decline in the polls. The Washington Post-ABC News poll finds that 45 percent approve of Obamaís handling of the economy, while 49 percent disapprove. The Marist-McClatchy poll shows a far worse result, with 37 percent approving, and 56 percent disapproving.

Alright, George, we do have them on the way. Do you want to meet with the officer when they get out there?
Zimmerman:
Yeah.
911 dispatcher:
Alright, where are you going to meet with them at?
Zimmerman:
Um, if they come in through the gate, tell them to go straight past the clubhouse and, uh, straight past the clubhouse and make a left and then go past the mailboxes youíll see my truck.[3:10]
911 dispatcher:
Alright, what address are you parked in front of?[3:21]
Zimmerman:
Um, I donít know. Itís a cut-through so I donít know the address.[3:25]
911 dispatcher:
OK, do you live in the area?
Zimmerman:
Yeah, yeah, I live here.
911 dispatcher:
OK, whatís your apartment number?
Zimmerman:
Itís a home. Itís 1950 Ė oh, crap, I donít want to give it out Ė I donít know where this kid is [inaudible][3:40]

Well, you even prove what you've said earlier was a lie but still maintain the lie. I don't understand how someone can do that though I'm trying.
Read the last statements by Zimmerman and the dispatcher. You've been saying for days that Zimmerman went back to meet the police but those statements clearly prove otherwise.
How do you explain that?
It's just the parallel universe phenomenon again.

Either you're in it or I am.

Zimmerman was clearly going to meet the police at what I understood to be the clubhouse but it was actually the mailboxes.

911 dispatcher:

OK, do you just want to meet with them at the mailboxes then?[3:42]

Zimmerman:

Yeah, thatís fine.[3:43]
