February 6, 2013

Listening to Sec. of State Hillary Clinton speak on Benghazi told us nothing. She as well as those we dumbly elected has yet to answer for that screw up....

Ms. Temple, may I humbly suggest that you should run for public office to help correct things.

You are not paying back. Is your check reduced and are you paying a withholding, yes.Your check will be larger when you stop working in entirety than your initial draw amount.

In case Ida didn't notice, we just had an election and the sheeple elected Barry.

"Ms. Temple, may I humbly suggest that you should run for public office to help correct things."

So just to be clear Tex, you're saying you would like to see someone elected to office, that has sent more bogus conspiracy theory chain emails to the paper, than anyone in the modern history of the Sun Gazette?

I'm certainly not in favor of so called term limits, but I would be in favor of a law that would ban anyone for running from office, that ever copied and pasted the text of a ridiculously false chain email, and sent it in to a newspaper as a "Letter to the Editor".

By doing that, they've either demonstrated an EXTREME level of gullibility, or a willingness to flat out lie to a large number of people.

"We need to oust those who constantly lie to appease us and place in office those who will protect this country even if we do not want to hear the truth." - Ida M. Temple

It's extraordinary to see someone that has seemingly dedicated her life to misinforming readers of the Sun Gazette editorial page, claim that the govt is constantly lying to her.

I'm guessing she either thinks that's true because she read it in a chain email, or as USAborn said the other day, it's true because it's "on the web".

The ones that blast Fox News in this thread don't watch the network. Fox has several conservative commentators for sure, but has plenty of right/left debate, even on the conservative shows. If you even bother to watch the newscasts you will detect they are mostly 'fair and balanced', reporting the news and letting you decide. Polling has shown Fox to be more trusted than most other outlets. Mistakes made by Fox? Sure, but not that many and certainly no more than the 'mistakes' made by NBC and MSNBC where they edit their footage and take things out of context. If you're only watching the 30 minute nightly newscasts on the 3 major networks, you really don't know what is going on.

State and federal politics is a world upon itself. In D.C., they live in a lawless world of you-scratch-my-back-I'll -scratch-yours. Remember insider trading? When they got caught, they actually passed a rule saying they can't do it anymore. Nobody went to jail or was punished. The law does not apply to them and they go in dirt poor and leave as millionaires. We are screwed. NHH

I will say I've seen several Republican politicians that CLEARLY receive and believe chain emails. The two that spring to mind are Louie Gohmert, and Michelle Bachman, and I certainly don't see their presence on the scene as a net gain for America. In fact I'd call them a national embarrassment.

Honest injun, right? How exactly can a network, that LITERALLY receives daily talking points from the RNC, and releases a memo to all their employees every morning directing them what phrases to repeat all day, and precisely how they should frame "news" stories, be "fair and balanced"? You do understand that Fox doesn't even deny this is how they operate, right?

I've said this before and I'll say it again, too many people are blinded by the idea of "Parties". In my opinion, when you vote you should do your research, vote on the issues that are most important to you, not the party in which they represent. Just because someone is a Democrat or a Republican, doesn't make them the better option.

I think both parties have issues in which their ideals are misguided. I think they are ALL politicians who want to fatten their wallets. I think all politicians lie. The thing is...which one is going to do the most to benefit you. Now, Obama was elected because he's going to do the most to keep people on welfare. That's why all those on Welfare voted for him. (By that I do not mean to say that there isn't anyone on welfare that isn't trying to make it by without it or that isn't republican).

I hear a lot of "You're Republican so you're stupid", "Your Democrat so you're stupid" (not literally obviously). Yep, cuz those conversations are going to get us somewhere huh? Get a clue people. We live a Country with more Freedoms than any other in the world. Candidate by Candidate that is changing. Politics are and always have been fueled by Greed. Thinking that will change is naive. Stop Voting based on Color, Gender, or Political Party. I get when it comes to Parties, they have different ideals so, you pick one or the other, I get that, I appreciate that. But it's beyond time to start voting based on the BEST candidate for the job. Was Obama that person? Heck no. Was Romney? I have no idea..but I doubt it.

Why was Obama elected? I'll give you 3 guesses and the first two don't count.

One last thing...Shaman, if you knew half of what you THINK you know.. maybe your comments would make more sense.

Youtube doesn't qualify as a reliable source.

"See Benghazi."

See it everyday right here Tex. And it's a pitiful display. One poster here has even said on at least two different occasions, that the White House orchestrated the attack. Imagine that.

It's also worth noting, that the same people here that wholeheartedly support the SAME people that slashed the embassy security budget, the same people that consider the State Dept. "the enemy", seem to be the ones screaming the loudest.

Can you explain that?

In fact Tex, I've seen conservatives both here, and out in the real world, just in the last few weeks alone, say the Newtown massacre was a conspiracy, the Benghazi attack was a conspiracy, that the President had signed "over a thousand" executive orders (the real, and readily available total is below 150), and the picture of the President firing a shotgun was faked.

How do you describe a group of people like that, without using the word "pitiful"? Now you support sending someone to DC that thinks the President was born in Kenya, and believes in a variety of UN conspiracy theories? Yeah, that'll solve a lot of problems.

What people I support? What outright lies?

I'm afraid you're going to have to come through with a little more detail, as I have literally no idea what you're talking about Phil. Unless of course you're talking about the "outright lies" I just pointed out.
