Patience. The only thing that works (if anything works) is complete silence. It generally only takes a day or two. See ya'll on the other side.....  (Tuesday | post #185593)

And the miniature pitbull /cocker spaniel cross (ka "cockerbull ") goes: "Please walk by my yard! Please! I dare ya! Chicken! I'm bored! Amuse me! Just try it! Walk by my yard......"  (Tuesday May 26 | post #185572)

Rather than "think for a second" about what allegedly comes "straight from the mouth" of a political figure, it might be useful to "think for a second" about who told it. After about the 7th time you find they gratuitously quote-mined or edited a statement, you'd think the skeptic meter would get calibrated.  (Tuesday May 26 | post #185555)

Most never did much thinking about what Bush said, so I guess no reason to start now. I'm still intrigued that that oldy moldy popped back up again.  (Tuesday May 26 | post #185553)

You know, Chris, I'm not the only one that's said it's often hard to make out what you're going on about, much less what it has to do with the post you attached it to. On the off-chance it's an error in translation, I went to trusty Google Translate, and converted your msg to Spanish, "El hombre que estaba cerrado. Podemos estar tranquilo ahora. Solo presta cuidadosa que no a lo que está pasando en Baltimore Cualquiera de las últimas semanas. Claro que es Comentarios otra conspiración. Si no trabaja duro en culpar a la persona más cercana "a la derecha. Ahora es de Baltimore por lo que su ser se ha ido una meta tramo Tengo fe puede hacerlo." and back to English, "The man closed. We can rest easy now. Just pay careful no to what is happening in Baltimore Either recent weeks. Sure it's another conspiracy Reviews. If you do not work hard to blame the nearest "to the right person. Now is Baltimore so his being gone a goal stretch I have faith can do." and now I think I get what you're saying. I set the oven to 425, and baste often. Hope that helps!  (Monday May 25 | post #185546)

Did you have to "think for a second" when Bush said "straight from his mouth" that a dictatorship would be so much easier? Me either. People make sh!t out of anything they can grab onto if it tickles their pertikeler fancy, even better if it makes the choir go "Tell it, man, tell it!" It's a tribal thing.  (Monday May 25 | post #185545)

Well there's a blast from the past. There's been so many Obama scandal/conspiraci es you need a scorecard. That particular one is among the earliest, and the earliest debunked. http://www.factche ck.org/2008/11/oba mas-national-secur ity-force/ How comes it to float back to the top of the cesspool after this many years?  (Monday May 25 | post #185532)

Go ahead and dance St. Vitus. You call to mind a certain other poster who would be an utter ass until people stopped responding and then heap praises on himself for his "victory ". Dorkism knows no gender. And now it serves you to reference what he actually did say. Now according to you he's said two entirely different things with the same statement. Jon Stewart gathered up some "information " re:Fox's representation of the poor for you to sneer at and ignore: http://thedailysho w.cc.com/videos/q5 tmo2/the-poor-you- know---did-you-eve n-try-to-research- this- I don't know what Kraut is watching but these are their own words. You can ignore it but you can't deny it.  (Monday May 25 | post #185523)

There ya go. Willie responded to your cribbed quote and false implication, rather than the true intent of the full statement, validating your action and allowing you to continue on your fabricated soapbox. Well done. Because the reason the President didn't mention these others IN CONTEXT of his true statement, is that these others don't characterize all poor people as moochers and takers. That WAS the point and thrust of the statement - those mentioned need to change the way they demonize all the poor by searching until they find the small percentage of manipulating losers whom we ALL despise. Geez, there's enough there for you to disagree with, but apparently not enough, so you completely revamp it to turn it into an authoritarian threat to fundamental liberty. As you say so often - "What is wrong with you!"  (Monday May 25 | post #185515)

Here's something else worth pondering. How do you think the fossil fuel industry views the transition to nuclear? http://deregulatet heatom.com/2012/10 /pertaining-to-fos sil-fuel-industry- fighting-nuclear-u sing-propaganda/  (Monday May 25 | post #185513)

But that's what you initially said. Everything we've talked about since arose out of that flat statementWere there problems with theft, overbilling and some shoddy work? Yes." Man, that's all you had to say. These things were going up like housing-bubble construction, with all the associated corruption and cut corners. Seriously, you have no problem living down-wind of a nuclear reactor built with "some shoddy work"? In researching this i came across a study of this very thing by the Brookings Institute, which acknowledged the FOCUS brought on the industry by anti-nuke groups, but they did not "halt" construction or permitting. They found that the primary factors were just as I've been saying - poor management, poor economic forecasting, and poor construction by the utilities. It's a technology that CAN be made safe (relatively). It is a technology which can be horrific if NOT made safe. And you have a problem with some "movement " saying so? As always, we find it far easier to blame each other than a faceless corporation. I don't know if it's a vestige of the serf mentality, or just the way people are - easier to attack a fellow human then a building.  (Monday May 25 | post #185511)

But that ain't what you quoted, was it? "We’re going to have to change how the media reports." End and period. That's a totally different statement, which you knew, and proceeded to riff on Obama's Soviet-style arrogance in thinking he has the power to change media reporting. Lyndi: "...and still, many deny his radical proclivities.(cont rol the airwaves, control the schools, control free speech (renamed 'political correctness' of course,) control the healthcare and simultaneously flood the nation with as many poor and uneducated people as possible then show them how to vote by looking for the letter 'D' on the ballot..... And that ain't what he said, or implied, at all. And now you show that you knew it, and didn't care. Clip anyone's speech and transform it into something else, and it's going to be challenged outside your bubble. It ain't about "defense ", it's about, as you so well put it, "I resent false advertising and I recognized the familiar pattern of deceptive salesmanship. " Well stated, but apparently your "standards " are malleable, and not self-binding. If this is representative of the substance of your ideology, that's proof enough of it's howling emptiness.  (Monday May 25 | post #185509)

No I don't contend that at all. Public opinion in an open society is always a factor. Your implication was that the NoNukes crowd were solely responsible for shutting down the program. This is not consistent with the facts. This ignores the real problems within the industry itself with huge cost overruns, poor planning, and a soft electric market (at the time). I recall that Steward Brand (of Whole Earth Catalog fame) was one "greenie " that was influential within the movement. Responsible greens were protesting poor construction and rampant safety violations. The industry tightened up their own game, and many former opponents like Brand now support them.  (Monday May 25 | post #185504)

Far be it from me to doubt your legendary recall abilities, but it just sounds like an odd thing to say. Corn doesn't thrive in water, and fish do poorly in dirt.  (Monday May 25 | post #185503)
