I did present facts. I said until and unless this nation can produce at least 400,000 jobs per month and the unemployment rate increases back over 9% for a few months till it then starts a downward trend we are in deep do-do.

If you don't understand that. you ought not be debating this topic.

Wow, not only didn't you present facts, but you switched subjects. Do you know conservative, he posts here. We're discussing j's bogus list. :coffeepap

Here ya go...



Now I know you'll just dismiss this site as partisan, and I admit that it is no DailyKOS which I know would be preferable to you but here are some others....



The Anatomy of a Hostile Government Takeover - James C. Capretta - National Review Online

RealClearPolitics - Government, UAW Take Over the Auto Industry

Barack Obama Maintains Control Over Banks By Refusing to Accept Repayment of TARP Money - WSJ.com

How Obama's Alternative-Energy Programs Became Green Graft - The Daily Beast

there you go, everything from right leaning to the far left daily beast....Get back to me when you have read them.

j, while I laugh at your sources, with the WSJ opinion page, an opinion, being the only credible source, proving you drink the koolaid like I say, none of it consititutes a take over. Insurance is still a private busines, the banks still function independently, the auto industry is not owned by the government. You are again inaccurate and have to go to koolaid drinkers to post links. Sad as that is, you will never convince anyone using these sources. Sorry.

There are no credible sources. Not one. They all have a point of view and an agenda. Sad, but true.

Again, point of view or bias is not what matters. I tell j this often. Accuracy does. Those sources often if not always are inaccurate, and often comically so.

....and I'm sure there are many that dispute the accuracy of your "facts". It's the way of politics.

You do NOT get to be the decider of what is or is not accurate.

Facts are facts. Sorry. Disputing them would be silly. It is often how we interpret them that is the problem. Some wrongly claim that a regulation is a take over or running a business. This is factually incorrect.

But yes, any thinking person can distinquish between silly ass opinion and facts. I do get to call these sites on this. ;)

See, this is the problem with attempting to have a conversation with someone that practices transference, and projection in their heavily laden koolaid opinions, derived from such sources as MSNBC, and DailyKOS, MediaMatters...etc. Couple that with the overboard arrogance of thinking themselves some sort of educrat and you get this. No source good enough (unless it agrees with their agenda, as is the case with WSJ in the recent tax cut debacle, or dailybeast for Christ sake), No pundit who's opinion they can agree with unless it is Cris Matthews, or Amy Goodman, No argument that measures up to their own warped, skewed, talking point pap that means nothing unless you agree with them.

Boo, is utterly a waste of time, but generally good to hone skills with if you like going round and round in circles.

First, I don't use dailyKOS, media matters, or political entertainers on any of the networks. That is your modus of operation, so you're projecting a bit here.

No, present no pundit. Present actual evidence. That's all I'm asking.

I have never read the "Daily Kos", and the exchange between j-mac and Boo Radley about said blog got me curious. I looked it up, clicked on a link at random within the publication, and came up with this:

Rick Perry for President?

Vote in This Urgent Poll

Scroll down to vote


Important: Do You Support Pres. Obama's Re-Election? Vote Here Now!
From the conversation, I gathered that the Daily Kos had to be a left wing publication of some sort. Now, can we conclude from that the left wing is interested in a Perry candidacy?

I can see where it would, as Perry would be a lot easier to beat than Romney.

Just wondering.

Solyndra solar power company shuts down 15 months after Obama visit

The Tonopah Solar company in Harry Reid's Nevada is getting a $737 million loan from Obama's DOE.
The project will produce a 110 megawatt power system and employ 45 permanent workers.
That's costing us just $16 million per job.

One of the investment partners in this endeavor is Pacific Corporate Group (PCG).
The PCG executive director is Ron Pelosi who is the brother of Nancy's husband.
But there is nothing wrong here, is there?

Talk to the hand dude....You are becoming just ridiculous as far as debate goes. As Barney Frank once derided one of his own constituents, "Sir, I would have better luck arguing with a coffee table." You are not open to anything that doesn't agree with your own opinion, so have fun with that.

What ever gets you through the night dude. I think you know better than that, but your own projection here is amazing, and what is further amazing, is that you are so blind as to not even see it.....heh, heh...My guess is that you won't be able to move on without responding to this, which is just plain sad dude....I can only thank my lucky stars that my children are in collage here in SC.
