    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    If you have something other than that get back to me will ya?

    Well, of course, when you can't argue the facts, shoot the messenger.

    Factcheck.org v. Newbusters?? I think that, yes, I'll go with factcheck.org. Btw, factcheck explains WHY it's wrong.

    However, as I said, people such as yourself, on both the left and right, believe what they WANT to believe and seemingly have no ability to actually process information. And then, pride gets them and they can't admit they're wrong, so it all becomes quite a mess of a divorce from reality and, as you do here, turns into a personal pissing match instead.

    Btw, you DID rely on a conservative Web site for you Pelosi info., ie: Newsbusters. Just pointing out the irony to you. Anyway, the story is false. But I'm also very aware that in Republican "We create reality now" world, "true" and "false" are very subjective terms. "If we like it, it's true. If we don't, it's false."

    I think I have more of an low-inflated view of you than I do an inflated view of myself, but as is expected, you frame it anyway you want it to be, and then that will be the reality.

    No it is because you are real American patriots who are educated and care about someone other than yourselves. You know how to debate rationally with facts and without being extremely rude to others who are less intelligent.

    Huh? What? Anyone know what this guy is talking about?

    anyway, cute little true story. So i'm at this Christmas party last December, and I'm talking to this pathologist, rabid Obama-hating conservative, all the usual language: "Obama is going to destroy this country over the next four years." "Liberals ruined it for me (where he lived in Vt.) because of taxes..." and then..."My favorite towns are Cambridge (MA) and Provincetown."

    Huh?

    "I hate liberals, they ruin everything, but my favorite towns are two liberal bastions."

    Hmmm....Repub logic 101, I guess.

    Everyone has the freedom of speech in this country and the right to debate others here as well. Is it our fault it you peole can't keep up because facts do not fit into your equations. Stick to the facts; it'll set you free.

    You are aware factcheck.org is the brainchild of the Annenberg Public Policy Center, an operation that partners with George Soros and his Progressive Machine? Why is it not surprising your attached to it?

    And it's predictable that they'll just say the source has no credibility and is liberal. Template response when the facts don't go their way.

    Oh, my Lord! Really? Well then, that inherently means they cannot be a professional and reliable journalistic outfit!

    Lol.

    Sorry, Ocean, factcheck is a solid source. Besides, "I believe it because it's negative toward Nancy Pelosi" is really bad thinking and reasoning.

    I have a cute little story as well.

    I'm ready to get into the pool at my gym to do laps. I ask an older gentleman if he would mind sharing his lane because they were all full. He said, "if you voted for the right person". This was in late November. I said, "my family and friends would tell you not to get me started." That did not phase him. He told me boastfully that he retired from being a high school history teacher. He proceeded to ramble Faux News blather. He said, "What I don't like about Obama is that he has never had a real job and he wants to suck off the gov't. I informed him that he had done exactly that himself all his life and told him he was brainwashed. Everyone else in the pool started laughing.

    I bet if you cut congressional staff payroll they wont pass bills that are so lengthy and focus on problems piecemeal, as they probably should.

    Giant omnibus bills make it oh so much easier to hide pork and bad policy.
