Bishop Explains Vote Against Debt Ceiling Increase

Thanks for that." Jun 14, 11 1:21 PM

Wikipedia lists that quote as coming from an "unreliable source".

The origin seems to be left wing blogs referencing other left wing blogs.

Do you think for yourself or just spread the propaganda fed to you?" Jun 14, 11 4:16 PM

Subtantiate the quote. Where's the context? You rail against conservatives as being unthinking and stupid when all you're doing is cut and pasting something which may or may not have been said. Is that critical thinking?

How could any rational person draw a conclusion from a snippet?

It's noteworthy that you made it through a post without using epithets though. I promise to treat you with the same consideration." Jun 14, 11 4:56 PM

Do you really think that what I'm asking for is so unreasonable?

If that's an excerpt from her speech, where's the rest? It had to come from somewhere.

I don't know if the quote is accurate or not, but latching onto something with no substantiation just because it mesh's with your own pre existing views isn't critical thinking.

I understand the temptation to do so. It's very comforting to constantly reassure yourself that you're "right". I used to do the same thing. Now I question everything. There are lots of forces with their own agendas trying to manipulate us, why make it easier for them?

Phil, thanks for your intellectual honesty, it makes your opinions, even where they are in direct opposition to mine, credible. I'm sure your posts will give me plenty of food for thought, and will make me reasess my positions.

Peoplefirst, I made my peace with Phil, but I'll make it crystal clear. I let my emotions get the better of me, and my recent posts crossed the line of acceptable behavior. Sorry phil." Jun 14, 11 10:55 PM

How do you know she said it? I have searched extensively, and as far as I can tell the text of the speech is nowhere to be found, except for this quote.

There are other quotes that have been circulated about her that turned out to be complete fabrications. Would it bother you if it turns out the quote was a lie?

"Countless verifiable sources" - there isn't a single verifiable source.

As far as the issue related to the comment, frankly, I'm not going to start another 100 post thread in a 2 week old unrelated article." Jun 15, 11 6:21 PM

I've seen this lie so many times. We never went from being in debt to having a surplus.

On Clinton's inaugural we the United States had a debt of
$4.1 Trillion. When Clinton left office the United States had a debt of $5.7. There was never any "surplus" on our balance sheet.

Southampton Village Officials Dispute New York Post Allegations

Summertime:

What do you think would be a fair salary for a patrolman in Southampton? " Jun 16, 11 1:06 PM

I'm sorry to see him go too. Damn you democratic leadership for forcing him out." Jun 16, 11 1:27 PM

Southampton Village Officials Dispute New York Post Allegations

The lowest paid officers (not sergeants, not detectives, but the lowest rank) - Make $90,000 a year. After 5 years it averages $160,000, after 8 years pay averages $180,000.

Making sergeant or detective pushes salaries up into the $215,000 range.

Poor guys, no wonder they need second "conflict of interest jobs"." Jun 16, 11 9:12 PM

By the way, $180,000 is a higher annual salary than governors in 45 states make, higher than a 4 star general or fleet admiral with 20 years experience, and higher than the average salary of a US Senator." Jun 16, 11 9:25 PM

Believing in equality of opportunity, rather than equality of outcome is clearly a sign of a bigotry and "hate".

Congratulations peoplefirst, you've outed yet another secret racist. Your sense of moral superiority is preserved." Jun 17, 11 9:03 AM

You're a hard left wing lunatic, yet you seem to think you're some sort of moderate.

Who do you think you're fooling?

" Jun 17, 11 2:56 PM

Is it justice when someone who scores higher on a professional, skill specific test is denied a job becuase of their skin color?

It happens every day, in the name of diversity.

I guess your compassion and sense of fairness is suspended when the person denied a fair chance is the wrong color." Jun 20, 11 9:14 AM

Also, you're ignorance of the "3/5th's compromise" is shocking, but not surprising.

Southern states wanted slaves counted as a full person, and Northern, largely abolitionist, states didn't want them counted at all.

This was about the population based apportionment of political power amongst states, and wasn't a statement about the value of one person in relation to another." Jun 20, 11 9:20 AM

"But something even more important needs to be pointed out-the suggestion that a white person will always score higher on a standard test than a person of color.This is one of the ways racism creeps out ...more of the right."

Absurd. A meritocracy is what conservative want, not some beaurocrat choosing winners and losers based on their skin color.

That's the definition of true prejudice, and that's exactly the system you want.

Center Moriches Man Charged With Trying To Rob Speonk Deli

Si Se Pueda!" Jun 20, 11 4:57 PM

You equate underage drinking with a with an armed robbery?

I guess the guy holding the gun is the "victim" because his skin is brown." Jun 22, 11 9:29 AM

Let's not forget last year's murder in Remsenburg/Speonk. Wasn't that the first murder in the area in nearly a century?

Surprisingly the guy with bloody hammer is nowhere to be found. I'll bet the unfortunate victim's body wasn't the only thing that went back to Guatemala that week." Jun 22, 11 9:56 AM

Some people live in poverty through no fault of their own.

Other people live in poverty because they made poor choices.

Is your argument that under no circumstance, no matter what someone decides to do with their life, they should be insulated from the consequences of their decisions?" Jun 24, 11 11:01 PM

LaValle Supports Local Farmers With Bill

I try to buy as much locally produced food as possible, but it's difficult.

There's plenty of excellent locally produced eggs, vegetables, fruit, beef, poultry, cheese, wine, and seafood but I have to go to different places for each catagory. If only there were locavore centric stores that had all of this in one place...

Also, once the winter rolls around, that's the end of locally produced food." Jul 2, 11 7:04 PM

Impaled Turtle Recovering Well, Officials Say

It's not "hate" that's likely behind this. Odds are the person who did this is a sociopath devoid of empathy. Unfortunately, even if they catch the evil b*****d who did this, they'll get a slap on the wrist.

Many serial killers started out torturing animals." Jul 9, 11 5:48 PM

A Keen Eye On Arab Revolutions

"And while some Americans have fretted about the role the Muslim Brotherhood will play in Egypt’s political future, Mr. Dorph is not worried. He said that, like religious conservatives elsewhere in the world, the group is motivated by a desire to get back to old-fashioned values and reacting to what they perceive as the ills of the modern world, including consumerism, inequality and corruption."

This summary of the Muslim Brotherhood is utterly inaccurate. "Back to basics" within the Muslim Brotherhood includes a conquered world ruled under a worldwide Islamic Caliphate where non-muslims must convert, be killed, or enslaved. "Back to basics" means every Jewish man, woman, and child in Israel must be slaughtered outright. It goes on and on.

The Muslim Brotherhood are absolute masters of PR, and know exactly what western audieces need to hear. There are a tremendous number of contemporary writings and speeches from the Brotherhood available that anyone can read for themselves. I suggest you do so, because Mr. Dorph clearly assumes you won't..
