from the guy who said the liberal media is "dumb," "lazy," and "dishonest."

Brent Bozell Called Journalists Lazy In Columns Someone Else Wrote For Him

Brent Bozell has staked much of his career on challenging what he sees as a lazy media establishment, all while reportedly collecting the profits from books and columns he never actually wrote.

Journalist Jim Romenesko reported Thursday that Tim Graham, the media analysis director at Bozell's Media Research Center, is actually the one behind the columns and books, an assignment that one former Bozell employee described as "forced ghostwriting."

But another ex-MRC employee told Romenesko that Bozell still collects 80 to 90 percent of the profits generated by the content. The Daily Beast's Ben Jacobs followed up on Romenesko's scoop by reporting that Bozell has been using Graham's words for years.

On the heels of the Romenesko report, Creators Media Syndicate, the organization that syndicates Bozell's column, announced that Bozell and Graham will share a joint byline from now on.

But when it apparently was Graham doing the writing and Bozell taking the credit, the column often lamented purportedly lazy journalism.

.Why do we need an extension of unemployment benefits if you're not a lying sack of offal ignoramus?
Huh, davey boy ?
The fact that you spewed out 92 million as if these people are all looking for work & couldn't find it.

It's called a lie.

It's called dishonest.

Why did we need to have al of these people on unemployment? The Bush recession.

But hey, you & your ilk seem to forget that & blame Obama because your party nearly killed this country.

The ACA is not driving anyone out of work. People would work less by choice.

You people just can't stop lying.

Ted Cruz explains what Republican politicians hate the most:'When they're forced to tell the truth'

So according to Cruz:

Republican politicians are a bunch of liars.

Most Republicans were bluffing all along on the debt limit.

Republicans think the GOP base consists of a bunch of gullible fools.

Tax breaks for the single most important and essential industry in America really rankles his sorry ass. If there is any other industry that's more vital to our existence, I don't know what it is - besides farming. But even growing food depends on the oil industry. He's probably anti-farming too, for all I know.

Funny stuff there Flack.

Your post said people would loathe not speaking up about this made up "Obama taking power" crap.

I said they should loathe doing nothing while their own party nearly killed this country.

Sounds logical to me.

Why? This man worked for Walgreens as a pharmacist; his job is to fill prescriptions no matter what they are,, not to decide who gets what based on his stupid religion. Then, when the product became over the counter, that nutjob bought all the inventory. Glad he got fired.

Walked away from the first one. Got outbid the second time. May have to walk away again this time. Seller seems stubborn to accept our final offer even though we met him halfway. I'm stubborn too.
The market isn't what it used to be. A whole lot of foreclosures and short sales makes everyone - including investors who wave cash in front of the sellers and then rent the homes - are fighting for the regular sales at the best prices. It's a living hell out there.
Well, maybe I exaggerated a little...but it's like a friggin' battle...and starting to seem like a losing one.
Will keep you posted.
That's true; many sellers want cash buyers only.

Of course as time goes by things change__we learned during the Bush inspired mortgage meltdown that entire neighborhoods in Florida can go into the shttr overnight.
Cost's for utilities vary, HOA cost's and rules can be game changers as well.
Sound's to me as though your realtor is confused, bewildered or a TeaParty mutt.
Actually, realtor is right on top of things. We just have a limit and, unfortunately, that limit has been beaten by other offers even though we're offering over asking. That's what we're up against.

But, ironically, that's what's going on right now with the present offer - a matter of a few thousand - 1500 to be exact. But sometimes it's just psychological depending on the house - whether you think it's worth it or not.

However, just spoke to our realtor a few minutes ago and said just what you said. It really is a matter of being able to accept paying a little more than what you think the house is worth or walking away and starting all over again. Waiting to see if our last offer is accepted. If not, will probably go ahead and accept their counter.

But it wasn't Bush's meltdown, it was Barney Frank's and Maxine Water's meltdown. And I would have thanked you for the advise if you hadn't blown it in the last sentence.

The Energy Information Administration says that it will cost new solar thermal plants 161 percent more to generate one megawatt hour of power than it costs a coal plant to do in 2018 despite the costs of solar power being driven downward.

On average, conventional coal plants cost $100 to make one megawatt hour, while solar thermal plants cost $261 for the same amount of power. This data, however, does not take into account the impact of federal, state or local subsidies and mandates on power costs.

It's also why they tend to mark up the price and just hope for a cash buyer or an investor.

This is Orlando...the resort capital of the world. Lots of transients and renters.

A lot of sellers won't come down on the price even if the comps aren't even close.

So it's as crazy in the housing market as anywhere else. At least here.
