Lol doofus
can't make a finding of fact unit someone gives facts.
Regardless, the facts to which you refer
did not produce the judgment with which you
agree and/or can come to terms with.

And that fact is much more important than your
underlying "facts."

And it is this fact that you cannot seem to get over.

And that's MR. Doofus - thank you.

Violate a criminal law and then get caught.

Where’s the IRS “misconduct”?

Missing from the inspector general's findings is evidence of any criminal wrongdoing

http://www.salon.com/2013/05/16/wheres_the_ir...

....if there was purposeful or criminal misconduct by anyone in the office, the IG’s report doesn’t seem to offer any actual evidence of it.

The IG’s report offers evidence of much confusion, poor training, unclear directives and what seems to be pretty lousy, or, at least, extremely ineffective management at the department of the IRS tasked with approving or rejecting tax-exempt status for 501(c)(3)“charitable groups” and 501(c)(4)“social welfare organizations”. Members of Congress, as well as government watchdog groups have long argued that many of those tax-payer subsidized organizations have abused the privilege and violated the legal restrictions on political activity by such groups. The abuse has been particularly widespread, they argue, in the wake of the Citizens United decision and the flood of largely unrestricted, often completely anonymous money funneled to those types of groups for often purely-political purposes.

Further investigation, including a criminal investigation promised by the Dept. of Justice, may uncover the type of “misconduct” the President claims to be outraged by, but the evidence for it is not found in the IG’s report, no matter how much Republicans are currently suggesting the opposite.

Also NOT found in the IG’s report:

1) Any evidence that “Tea Party” related groups were identified during this process for nefarious reasons;

2) Any type of identification, political or otherwise, for the groups whose applications were similarly flagged and delayed (“Tea Party” related groups made up only a minority, approximately 1/3 of the groups whose applications were delayed and held for further examination);

3) Any indication or evidence whatsoever that the White House, or anybody outside of the IRS units handling these cases, had anything to do with what happened;

4) Any response to the other question the IG’s office was tasked by Congress to investigate, namely:“whether existing social welfare organizations are improperly engaged in a substantial, or even predominant, amount of campaign activity.”

Obamacare mandates taxpayers pay for
BRCA gene testing: yet another
government handout to wealthy
corporations
But here’s what’s even more crooked about
all this: You know how Obama likes to talk
“free market” but actually engages in so-
called “crony capitalism” by handing out
money to all his corporate buddies, Wall
Street insiders and deep-pocketed campaign
donors? Part of Obamacare — the
“Affordable Care Act”— mandates that
taxpayers pay for BRCA1 genetic testing!
Myriad Genetics, in other words, stands to
receive a full-scale windfall of profits
mandated by government and pushed into
mainstream consciousness through a
campaign of “medical terror” fronted by
Angelina Jolie and the New York Times. Are
you starting to see how this all fits together
yet?

There is fine interplay.
What kind of relationship exists between the opposites?

Is it causal?

As for instance, what is the causal relationship between selfishness and selflessness?

Where is the fine interplay between selfishness and selflessness that you refer to?

LOL.

The word "versus" signifies separation or difference between 2 entities.

How do you unify or resolve two opposites or two contradictions each having its own causation, power of realization, effects and basis/conditions of existence?

Can two contradictory entities ever be juxtaposed? Think!

Really?
This is what you said:
FORMER RES: "So I take it you don't know the difference between something being factual vs truthful/true."
The word vs (versus) indicates that fact is independent of truth.
Your reply implies that the two - fact and truth - are unrelated and now you're claiming that you never said so.
You are lost in the trees missing the forest

I think what FR was getting at was that facts and truths are not either/or. His use of vs implies a potential to contrast, but also with common elements as well that may be functions of each other.

Thats is why we have the expression "compare and contrast" to indicate differences, but not necessarily absolutes.

FACT
1) A thing that is indisputably the case.
2) Information used as evidence or as part of a report or news article.

Nonsense.

Your logic is even more silly.
