    And the nonsense from Warren just keep getting deeper:

    Warren: I used minority listing to share heritage

    Democratic Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren, fending off questions about whether she used her Native American heritage to advance her career, said today she enrolled herself as a minority in law school directories for nearly a decade because she hoped to meet other people with tribal roots.

    “I listed myself in the directory in the hopes that it might mean that I would be invited to a luncheon, a group something that might happen with people who are like I am. Nothing like that ever happened, that was clearly not the use for it and so I stopped checking it off,” said Warren.

    The Harvard Law professor argued she didn’t use her minority status to get her teaching jobs, and slammed her Republican rival U.S. Sen.Scott Brown for suggesting otherwise ......

    ........... “Being Native American has been part of my story I guess since the day I was born,” said Warren, who never mentioned her Native American heritage on the campaign trail even as she detailed much of her personal history to voters in speeches, statements and a video. “These are my family stories, I have lived in a family that has talked about Native American and talked about tribes since I was a little girl.”

    So the whole family sat around and talked about being 1/32nd Injun. And we must assume that the next generation has sat around and talked about being 1/64th Injun. The "darling of the left".

    This kind of stuff really makes my brain ache. for so many ways.... 1st, why go to such trouble touting native American ancestry when it means so little for her anyway? Unless she grew up on a reservation, had a native American wedding ceremony and or whatever, it does so little if anything to add to her electability. But then that it has been so vastly overblown that it comes down to 1/32... in which case more people than not can find 1/32 of just about anything, it stands to hurt her. But, then again, it also pushes my pain threshold to see that people were even making a big deal out of it in the 1st place as if her having native american heritage would have ever been a detriment.

    I think all involved need a good scalping IMO.

    Harvard sure seemed to think it mattered that she was Native American.

    Let’s start with the facts as we know them.

    On Friday, the Boston Herald reported that Harvard Law School had touted Warren as a Native American employee in the 1990s when the school was under fire for lack of diversity. Warren said she had no idea she was described as such until the Herald reported it, although she does have native ancestry. (A genealogist says Warren‘s great-great-great grandmother is listed as Cherokee.)

    Yet Warren also identified herself as a minority in professional legal directories for nine years.

    so, what you are telling us is that you oppose the bankruptcy practices she advocated
    do you also disapprove of corporations being able to file for bankruptcy, to avoid their contracted obligations or just individuals?

    Stop dude. Just stop, Warren wanted to change contracts stating there was a fraud and I never said she was completely wrong, just dishonest and stupid. Since you cannot get my point I'll finish this, bankruptcy is legitimate as a last resort, it's fine if you need to reorganize but not to dodge debt or to make an assertion that the other party engaged in unethical practices or predatory lending as Warren has often asserted. Don't ever try that strawman again.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    here you go
    someone perpetrates a fraud and while acknowledging the legitimacy of challenging such fraud, you then term that challenging action "dishonest and stupid"
    hint: what is ""dishonest and stupid" is NOT challenging fraud in the bankruptcy court but objecting to those who effect such challenges
    Since you cannot get my point I'll finish this, bankruptcy is legitimate as a last resort, it's fine if you need to reorganize but not to dodge debt or to make an assertion that the other party engaged in unethical practices or predatory lending as Warren has often asserted.
    here
    you want to say that chapter 11 or 13 is acceptable but chapter 7 is not
    you have exposed your ignorance of bankruptcy proceedings. you haven't a clue what you are talking about. fortunately, Ms. Warren does
    which is why it is very appropriate for her to use the bankruptcy proceedings to object to unethical and predatory lending practices
    your own inability to comprehend that speaks to your diminimis understanding of the bankruptcy topic
    now, return to the shallow end of the pool before you hurt yourself
    Don't ever try that strawman again.
    point out the strawman

    Hey, come on guys. You keep bringing up George Bush and Scott Brown, but the issue here IS Elizabeth Warren. You accuse Republicans all the time of bringing up other subjects to divert attention from the main topic, but here you are doing it yourself.

    I find Elizabeth Warren's action here objectionable. Period. We can discuss Scott Brown or George Bush in other threads, where THEY are the topic.

    you object to her recognizing her Cherokee heritage
    why is that?
