    He's merely saying that race isn't as "balck and white" as it sued to be (so to speak). There is no name calling, no negative connotation. Hard to argue you mean nothing by your iuse of the word. Hence, out of context.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

You are angry that someone dare express their opinion so you lie about her being a "plant" because she's a secret activist (even though she disclosed all of her previous work trying to make birth control more accessible) because she dare to argue what she believes in. In that case, why didn't I see any of you bitching about how all of the tea partiers were just "planted activists"? Oh, that's right, you were too busy arguing with the liberals that were saying that the tea partiers were just plants set up by outside groups because the guys on your side are the good ones, lol.

    It's funny that you're so fast to call out others for hypocrisy.
    My ilk? Rush is a dirtbag for what he said. I keep saying that but the hacks dont care.

    Flukes hands arent clean either though she is an activist, and her testimony was dishonest a worst, divorced from reality at best.


    Can someone disagree with fluke and her activism, or is "dissent" no longer the "highest form o patriotism" to your "ilk"?

    Good, but I didn't mention Rush.

    Of course, because she disagrees with you, therefor you can twist her words and make crap up.

    Lying about what she said is not disagreeing. Once again, you are caught trying to twist what someone is saying.

    Well, let me be of assistance to those who think others are misinterpreting. Here's a transcript of what Fluke said:

    What did Fluke say, specifically, that was dishonest? That birth contrl "can" cost as much as $3,000 over three years. That is not dishonest. So what else did you have in mind?
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    He was wrong in that he didn't have the exact dollar amount. He actually hurt his own description by making the cost HIGHER than it actually was. Fluke used the 3,000 dollar number so it's all I can go on as far as fact. $83 bucks a month is a fair assessment then.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    The simple fact is she is a liar. Throughout her testimony she lied, over exaggerated...and please...for the love of all things holy...can someone tell that poor womans 'friend' where she can find a good attorney? Apparently...there are none...at GEORGETOWN LAW...

    And people wonder why anecdotal evidence during 'testimony' is such a bad thing.

    She didn't say 3,000 a year.

    BC pills are all under $100. In fact, most are between $20 to $50 dollars, and let me stress this next part: Without insurance.

    I like the way she is described by the Democrats who invited her as "The Voice The GOP Didn't Want You To Hear!"

    Scary stuff!!

    Has anyone ever heard of this 30 year old student before her 15 minutes arrived?
