<quoted text>While I said nothing about intellect or intelligence, you are right - I think much of the angst about politics is wrong.
I think that because I believe the majority of the agnstt to be manufactured, in much the same way the scumbag Australian's antisemitism is manufactured. It's manufactured for profit, and it's manufactured for votes.
63% think the country is headed in the wrong direction. Congress and the POTUS poll numbers are in the gutter. We live on a political diet of crises and scandals and investigations, a recovery that looks more like a recession, deep division among the citizens on nearly every major issue and a nightmare brewing in the Middle East.

I'm pretty sure the angst people are feeling, is real.

<quoted text>When DOES he answer you, Catcher? You get a silly, petulant "I'm bob and I'm bad" response to everything you post to him, right?
You've done it enough to know the result.
No apology necessary.
OK.

I was interested to know his view on a minimum wage increase (which I fully support).

I asked him the question immediately after he posted about his economic struggles.

I'll drop it.

Your new hero.
Klein has been criticized for his biography of Hillary Clinton, titled, The Truth About Hillary: What She Knew, When She Knew It, and How Far She'll Go to Become President, which was released on June 21, 2005. Politico criticized the book for "serious factual errors, truncated and distorted quotes and overall themes [that] don't gibe with any other serious accounts of Clinton's life."[6] The book was attacked not only by liberals, but by conservatives as well. John Podhoretz wrote in the New York Post, "Thirty pages into it, I wanted to take a shower. Sixty pages into it, I wanted to be decontaminated. And 200 pages into it, I wanted someone to drive stakes through my eyes so I wouldn't have to suffer through another word."[7] In National Review James Geraghty wrote,“Folks, there are plenty of arguments against Hillary Clinton, her policies, her views, her proposals, and her philosophies. This stuff ain’t it. Nobody on the right, left, or center ought to stoop to this level.”[8]
Natch.

For the first time in my working life I paid a bill late. Didn't have a choice the money wasn't in the account and the following month I bounced a check. Think I might have done that once before in my teens when leaning how to balance the book. The short of it is this looks to be the worst year I've had yet. I'd like to see the hack politicians that give lip service to the poor step off. Get rid of the minimum wage and more could work and start to learn basic job skills they'd have for life.

Yes.

If you like, I can give you other sources attesting to his character and reputation--or lack thereof.

Ah-ha.

I guess there's sort of an anniversary coming up. I first heard 'reasoning' like that fifty years ago, probably BEFORE the bodies of Andrew Goodman and Michael Schwerner were discovered.

(Since the Aussie's stuff is 'interesting' to you, you'd be fascinated with some of the speculation about how Goodman & Schwerner's ethnicity played into it.)

I could not have created a better example of the sort of thing said in reaction to this move that makes the most outrageous people objecting to the team name seem rational and reasonable. And yes, comparing a football team's name to the murder of civil rights workers is hyperbole - but given your attempt to explain away the people you disagree with, not too damned much.
Not buying the vehicle part, eh?

(I am curious tho' why you omitted it from my quote in your response post. No complaint mind you, just curious.)

Agendas can be a bitch!
Plenty of blame to go around.

Not particularly surprising, mind you - just interesting.
To borrow a phrase - I'll take interesting over surprising any day.

Question - Why is objectivity interesting to you?

I'm starting to get the impression that you really believe that conspiracies simply don't exist.

Any conspiracy.

The nation’s top book reviews have all panned Klein and his work. The Boston Globe called him “an author devoid of credibility,” the New York Times described him as “smarmy and sleazy,” the Los Angeles Times called his work “bio-porn,” and the Tucson Citizen referred to it as “the literary equivalent of a backed up-septic tank.”(It got a grade of “F”).

Oh, there's real angst - and manufactured angst.

I mean, just look at your list. The nightmare that's brewing in the Middle East had the hops and barley and yeast added before the creation of the modern state of Israel. and the Kosher Halal chickens are coming home to roost - and the ability of the United States to do much about it is limited in the extreme.

Aside from ensuring the protection of the State of Israel from all enemies (except itself), I wish we could give the whole mess back to Turkey, Britain and France from whence it came.

Congress's poll ratings have been falling since before Obama took office, and Obama's poll numbers for June 2014 look - here's a shock - pretty much like Bush's poll numbers did in June 2006. We've been living in on a political diet of crises and scandals and investigations for so long I can't remember when we weren't.

Other than the fact that the tenant at the White House has a different party suffix behind his last name, what's new? The fact that the talking heads have changed positions (offense now playing defense, defense now on the offence) isn't new; it's just business as usual.

Look at some of the most recent yelling. Neither Bush nor Obama can bring Putin to heel; neither Bush nor Obama can make the Iraqi's do what's best for their own (entire) country. From the most recent rhetoric, you'd think that the Iraqi government and Vlad Putin were model citizens of the world until Obama came into office. I suppose in some cosmic (comic) sense, that sort of balances out the fact that Bush's detractors accused him of creating the trouble with the Iraqis, and of misreading Putin so badly that Putin's incursion into Georgia was his fault.

Well, it would provide balance if the matters at hand were a trivial game of tit for tat played by children.

I stand on what I said earlier. If you spend your time talking about liberals or conservatives, you might as well be talking about Jews the way not very awake is doing. It's a contrived, time tested, game for power.

If you're going to make a case for conspiracy theories, you could probably do better than drag up something that stunk when the Czar's secret police dreamed up the Protocols of the Elders of Zion back at the turn of the last century.

I'm just sayin'.

To state what should be obvious, what I find interesting is WHAT you are claiming to be objective about, not objectivity itself.

Uhhh not quite in this case, Mr Holmes. "Petulant" yes, "silly", subjective.

I replied to the question. You'd just hafta be able to think outside the box to get it.

Oh and thanks for your interest.

I had a feeling that a person like you would react to this. Your post here does not really show any intelligence or rational thought and I thank you for this. Just proves that you are ignorant to the matter here.
For your info, I am not a fan of Nazis either. I have relatives and friends who are J-ews and non-Whites. So do not give me the ol' "Nazi" Card as it just shows that you do not know much about this.
<quoted text>
Oh the old "Hate Speech" routine again. You do not even know that the sayings "Hate Speech" "Hate Monger" "Anti-S-emitic" and "Political Correctness" were all invented by Z-ionist J-ews. It shows that you are under the spell of the Cultural Marxism the Z-ionists have placed on Western societies.
I graciously thank you for making an example on this.
No, no, no, no, no. Obviously you did not get the memo.

In the modern era you're supposed to say that hate speech, hate monger, and antisemite (being very careful about the latter, at least at first) are part of the larger left wing extreme progressive composite. Since there are so many ignorant people (like, say, me) around you don't just spring the full weight of 'the truth' on people. Nowadays you even have to be careful about bringing up the New World Order, but the UN is still fair game if you soft-pedal who the puppet masters are at first.

"Some of my best friends are" is kind of weakly done, but it's a timeless deflection that probably doesn't hurt. Cultural Marxism is a good 'un ... but again, don't spring who's behind it on them right away. Work some anti-Obama stuff into your routine, because there's a sizable audience in the US who can accept that he's a stooge of the larger left wing extreme progressive composite cultural marxists already.

You're set up nicely here - you've already got one person saying your theories are interesting, claiming that dismissing them outright is lacking objectivity. You have to wait until they are ready for the truth. After all, they've been brainwashed by the media (and we all know who controls THAT).

Good luck.

You went from copying a paragraph from wiki to copying a paragraph from Think Progress.org which is a liberal BLOG. The Tucson Citizen is no longer in business. Their last paper was printed in 2009.

Now, how about you stop trying to censor American reading material and getting all worked up because a potentially unflattering about the politicians you loooooooove is coming to bookstores.

I am going to buy the book.
I am going to read the book.
Unlike you, I haven't voluntarily turned my mind over to the government and permitted them to kidnap and steer my thinking and until I'm mandated to turn my mind over to the government, I have every intention of using it to arrive at my own conclusions.

And btw, your protestations of the both the author and the book was excellent advertising.
