    "If there is but one threat to power and stability it is a healthful people who can turn outward from their own meager plight and demand better. Such it is that a patient protection and affordable care act can never be allowed to pass."

    I deserved that I guess....

    But there is much more meat to post 833, I hope we can get beyond this mistake of mine to that.

    That you stand by the content of the false quote?

    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.

    Get beyond the silliness Joe. I retracted the attribution, and even showed where the quote came from. So, as to the substance of what the quote puts forth? Yes, I stand behind that, although I am sure Jon Stewart would disagree...

    J, I realize you retracted. My question was about the meat. You both agreed it was a false quote, which is why I noted it.

    However, no reasonable person would stand behind it. It's all part of the propaganda you buy into and not anything born of factual and provable information.

    No, it wasn't a "false quote", only falsely attributed....I provided the correct author as far as we know to whom the quote belongs...

    This part is just more nonsense you usually throw out there to deflect.

    If you don't know who said, you don't know if it's a quote from anyone who should be quoted. The false part is the attribution.

    And no, reasonable people don't see everything as socialism. The old, tired, worn out tactic of calling things socialism really is part of the propaganda. I don't have to define propaganda do I?

    why are you belaboring the point? I already pulled the attribution, and I went one step further to post where it did come from...So, instead of making a point that is already long settled, I'd say move on.

    And no, reasonable people don't see everything as socialism.
    Who does that? That is your own problem with people that disagree with you. No one has ever said that "everything is socialism" as it pertains to Obama. So stop already, it is truly tiresome.

    It is proper to call things what they are.

    I don't have to define propaganda do I?
    We'd prefer you stick to the thread topic. Thanks.

    Because you keep acting like you don't get the point.

    Clearly you and others tend to do that a lot. How many socalism post do we get?

    But you're not doing that.

    If I didn't get the point, then why would I have pulled the attribution? Gheeze!

    When policies seem socialistic to me, I will call them that....As for "a lot"? I don't think so...I call things what they are. Progressive.

    But you're not doing that.
    Oh, but I am...I am just not calling them what you wish I would so you're upset with that....I can't help you there.

    Re: Dr. Carson: Obamacare The Worst Thing That Has Happened Since Slavery

    Equivilating Obamacare to Slavery is the pinnacle of ignorance and dishonours the memory of those who suffered under slavery in American history and suffer from Modern Slavery today.

    What I absolutely love here, is how many conservatives skewers Blacks for bringing up Slavery today when it comes to issues with the black community and in regards to any kind of reparations...

    But magically it's allowed to be brought up in this context.

    And as my esteemed colleague pointed out, to ignore other significant events that caused massive suffering to Americans, such as WW1, WW2, Vietnam etc. is also an insult to the lives that were lost and affected by those events.
