This is a different thread.

Not directed to you but to the other thread, here I'm posting an entire article from an actual publication. Not some cut and paste from an internet nutjob.
I didn't think this particular Newspaper was available in Texas and thought you all might enjoy a different viewpoint.

Yes, it is a different thread.

The source of the B.S. is irrelevant.
Just because a rag has 'New York' in the title, does not make it any more trustworthy, or the stories any better thought out.

It is still cut and paste 'Malarkey; from a political hack.

Texas newspapers generally have Texas cities in their name, like Dallas morning news, or Fort Worth star telegram. But the journalist went to the same colleges and have the same thesauruses on their desks.
There isn't a viewpoint we aren't exposed to.

The reason I am a conservative isn't because I haven't read enough Liberal B.S.; in fact its despite hearing that viewpoint on every publicly funded and Hollywood production my entire life.

I know Greece is way across the ocean, and has a funny sounding name. But, if we follow their footsteps too closely; we will be reaping the same 'benefits'.

Scott

Brian i would appreciate it if you would explain why you like big Govt. ?
What it is you think they can do other than waste your money , tax you more etc.
Why do you think the Health care law will do any good ? ( my rate has gone up 12% so far this year)
And please explain why the White House didnt know it was dangerous in Lybia , i mean really ?
While you do that please also explain how a bunch of nut jobs living in the desert found the video on Youtube to get so pissed off about.
And please explain How Carlos Sims, the Worlds richest man ( large Obama contributor ) and Mexican national got the contract to provide millions of free phones to poor Americans costing taxpayers billions of dollars ?
I wont ask you about Obamas money bundler getting a 550 million $ loan for Solindra , thats a drop in the bucket..!
The one thing about Romney was he was rich enough i didnt think anyone could pull his strings like some other politicians, but i could have been wrong.
Thanks i await your answers, Bulldozer

wasnt there one candidate keep telling the people of ohio that jeep was moving their production to china... and when jeep repeatedly said no we are not moving production, that candidates reply was jeep is moving it prodution to china, over and over again...i think that is a clear example of blatant lies and fear mongoring.... in what is refered to as a swing state and one that was key in securing a victory for either party !

My friend i almost think you were implying i was bsing ! What i stated is true, here is the article in the Huffington Post, a very liberal rag.
The Govt is buying phones to give away from this guy, in turn he is giving money to the Obama campaign. Now you can spin it any way you want to OR you can open your eyes to the truth.
The election is over and trust me i am not so stupid that i didnt recognize Romneys short comings but what bugs me is liberals cant seem to see the forest from the trees, its like there guy is perfect. Well i hate to burst your bubble but he is far from it.
I refuse to be ignorant about what goes on in our Country and our Govt. I will talk about what i think, i appreciate honest discoarse.
You didnt answer the question about Libya, DO all the liberals in the country think it was safe there ? Do all liberals think the Embassy wasnt bombed in April or June that the people there didnt need any protection?

Obama was "fired up" and so were the voters, and so now, the mass firings begin. Here's a collection of today's headlines. Please say a prayer for the families who will be suffering. Had Romney won, many of these companies would now be hiring.

It was double talk from both sides. It's all word games. Jeep brand IS expanding business in China and arguably that reduces the job opportunities here that could build those Jeeps. OTOH, if you don't expand the business in China you're not going to sell as many Jeeps there because the import tariffs kill you by pricing out of the market.

It's all spin.

As I said early on, Obama won fair and square. The election process works. At large, the American people got just what they asked for....but we're going to be worse off because of it.

C'mon, how can anyone not be happy that the economy-destroying, Constitution-ignoring, ignorant, Muslim, socialist, tax-and-spending, pinko, baby-killing, low-life, scumbag, dope-smoking, narcissistic, know-nothing, pathological-lying, empty-suit, illegal-immigrant, latent-homosexual president of ours was re-elected? Rejoice! Be happy! Riding is all that matters!
