    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.

    Re: U.S. Jobless Rate Unexpectedly Declines to 8.6%

    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.

    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.
