I think you need to just call me a poopy-head, and get it out of your system. Perhaps at that point we can have an adult conversation, about something other than your impression of me personally.
Or not - whatever makes you more comfortable.
I have a hard time respecting someone who doesn't work with facts but blows her opinions all over like she blows her nose.

<quoted text>To be perfectly honest, I'm not getting those facts from anywhere other than here, because I lost interest in this 'news' weeks ago.
I've also lost interest in Benghazi, the IRS, and Vacay-Gate, by the way. Personally, I thought the killings at the "Embassy" in Benghazi, were no more or less important than the dozens of other embassy killings during the previous administration, which got no press whatsoever, and even less outrage from anyone. I thought the IRS was SUPPOSED to determine whether or not any groups applying for tax exemptions, were actually eligible for them. And I am still pretty sure that Obama's vacation days over the course of the last five years, are STILL running behind his predecessor's during that fellow's first two years in office.
I would like to hear more about what's going on with the new version of Glass-Steagall, whether or not (after forty-count-em-forty attempts to overturn Obama care) the Congress Critters are going to discuss an infrastructure-based jobs plan,(or any OTHER jobs plan, since that's what each and every ONE of them campaigned on to get into office) and any sort of immigration reform, other than making English the official language of the most diverse country on the planet. And in light of the fact that it's still poised directly over the largest natural aquifers in the Mid-West, The Keystone Pipeline Project still interests me, as well.
Any takers?
It should be obvious to everyone by now, even obama's low information supporters, that jobs is not JOB 1 in his administration.

Ever been to northern Quebec? Go there, that should answer any questions you have about why we should adopt one official language. Basically, Canada recognizes only two major spoken languages, I'd hate to see it if they recognized several. You'd have to stop your car in order to read signs.

Give me one fact instead of your opinion. You are lazy when it comes to backing up the smack you talk. It makes you no fun to play with.
Speaking of facts, I know it's off-topic, but how's this:

"We have heard talk enough. We have listened to all the drowsy, idealess, vapid sermons that we wish to hear. We have read your Bible and the works of your best minds. We have heard your prayers, your solemn groans and your reverential amens. All these amount to less than nothing. We want one fact. We beg at the doors of your churches for just one little fact. We pass our hats along your pews and under your pulpits and implore you for just one fact. We know all about your mouldy wonders and your stale miracles. We want a this year's fact. We ask only one. Give us one fact for charity. Your miracles are too ancient. The witnesses have been dead for nearly two thousand years." — Robert Green Ingersoll, "The Gods" (1872)

And now for a change of pace---

-------

In a dark and hazy room, peering into a crystal ball, the Mystic delivered grave news:

"There's no easy way to tell you this, so I'll just be blunt. Prepare yourself to be a widow. Your husband will die a violent and horrible death this year."

Visibly shaken, Laura stared at the woman's lined face, then at the single flickering candle, then down at her hands.

She took a few deep breaths to compose herself - and to stop her mind racing. She simply had to know.

She met the Fortune Teller's gaze, steadied her voice and asked, "Will I be acquitted?"

Fact: There are 545 individuals in charge of crafting our Federal laws.

Fact: These are the people responsible for the tax code, declaring war, and regulating business, among many many other functions.
Fact: Congress, and the rest of those individuals, have premium health care insurance, which is paid for with taxpayer dollars, and they certainly haven’t VOTED to abolish it even once, much less 40 times.

Fact: They are employed by the People of the United States, and with the exception of the Supreme Court Justices, it is our prerogative to fire them if they do not do the job we expect of them.

Fact: I voted for Obama in 2008

Fact: Disposable income is an indicator of middle class status.

Fact: More Republicans than Democrats voted to allow the NSA to continue with a data collection program for which their constituencies have castigated the President.

Fact: Voting is a right the Constitution recognizes for all American Citizens, and the only way (other than running for office) in which citizens can influence who makes the decisions, and the decisions our elected leaders make, for all Americans.

Fact: This is just a smattering of facts with which my posts have ‘presented’ you over the last several days - your responses have been limited to your opinions….mostly your opinions of my personality, and how much it irks you for one reason or another. But that hardly negates the (fact) that I’ve presented them.

Fact: your posts are no less opinion-riddled than those of anyone else on this thread, including me.

Opinions: Your opinions are every bit as ‘boring’ as mine, and if it wasn’t for me and willie, there wouldn’t be an intelligible, much less intelligent, opposing viewpoint consistently posted on this thread, and it would become the mutual admiration society it has threatened to become for the last, oh, I’m going to guess, four years. There’s nothing more boring than a bunch of folks bloviating about, and congratulating themselves on, sharing various opinions in lock-step with one another . You need me, and the one or two other opposing viewpoints here, to keep this benighted thread relevant.
Enjoy your evening.

Obama does not have the power to pass a jobs bill. Neither does his cabinet. The responsibility for passing laws belongs to Congress. Especially, since Jobs as Job One, was the campaign slogan which contributed the most, to every one of the 535 members getting the chance to pass any.

You in no way add to the intelligence quotient of this thread. I want you to have an opinion based on fact. Your holding the same opinion as me is irrelevant.

Is that a fact.

Have you similarly desisted from reading posts from those of us who parrot "The Blaze"?

I was just wondering, because the aforementioned posts are sprinkled with links to the BS... so it seems you could be just as sure the squawks were contained within...

My opinions ARE based on facts. You want me to come to your conclusions, based on your facts, and proffer things such as "Excellent post, Pernie." My facts don't elicit responses from you, unless you respond with an observation on my personality, and why it irks you.

You do realize "Obamacare" was originally "Romney Care," don't you?

"Republicans" (if you really want to call them that) made sure there was a penalty for not buying medical insurance. It's public record, Pernie.

Quit pissing down my neck, and trying to tell me it's raining, Pernie. Your guy TOUTED the bones of 'Obamacare' as a plank of his Presidential campaign...hammering on his gubernatorial legacy...until he didn't.

And now that it has a new name, it's anaethema, and votes to repeal it are the only thing "Republicans" in Congress pay attention to...at the expense of everything but condemnation of abortion.

Talk about boring. If the GOP sticks with this strategy, its relevance as relates to the top job, is history.

Care to discuss that, or is it too lacking in facts?

You'll notice the post to which you replied, contains several facts. Rather than show your 'love' for those facts you would love me to 'give' you, by way of engaging conversation about them, you instead chose to comment on my value to the thread's intelligence quotient.

What you 'want', is fairly irrelevant to what you'll get - even as it pertains to the way you'd like to see others present their opinions. "What you want," is also fairly irrelevant to me, in its entirety.

(That is both an opinion, AND a fact.)

http://news.investors.com/ibd-editorials/0809...

''One of those fellow students is Wayne Allen Root, former Libertarian vice presidential nominee. He wonders, as we do, what's in Obama's Columbia file that warrants standards of secrecy higher than, say, the details of the Osama bin Laden raid or our efforts to derail Iran's nuclear program with a computer virus.

Root asks if Obama's grades were good enough to get into Columbia. We have a copy of Mitt Romney's high school report card, which was deemed by the Boston Globe important enough to reveal to the world, but President Obama's Columbia transcripts remain a mystery.

Root asks another question, namely how did young Obama, raised by a single mom and from a modest background, pay for all this education? Root wonders if one of the secrets in Columbia's files is perhaps an application for aid given to poor foreign students.

Root has been dismissed in some quarters as a "birther," and we too might dismiss him out of hand if not for the fact that so much of what Obama has said about himself is not true. Recently we asked the question, "Is President Obama A Pathological Liar?" and provided tales he has told about himself that are simply false.''

Of course, since it's about the assailant Travon Martin, Hip probably has a lot of Al Sharpton "facts" mixed in, with a little sprinkling of Jesse Jackson.
However, I am surprised that you also disagree with the actual facts brought out in the Zimmerman trial, and with the statements of Rachael Jeanel that came out in later interviews. You're not getting your "facts" from NBC, are you?
In other words, you're too mentally lazy and determinedly ignorant to rebut on point, so you'll just dismiss out of hand with tired and lame right-wing red flags. The vast majority of my "facts" came directly from Zimmerman himself, with the only "opinion" being my question as to how Martin's body ended up 15' away from where Zimmerman alleged the action took place. You ain't foolin' nobody - you quit posting back to me after I took you to the woodshed one too many times and showed you for a pig-headed tool.
