    You can't shut down the government over a nominee; although if Ted Cruz could, he'd probably try.

    Non-sequitur; unapproved. Also, -3 internet points for bad use of an apostrophe.

    For all this horsesh*t I read here all the time about how "progressives" (which I generally take to mean "people I disagree with" when conservatives, be they self-declared or obvious, start yapping) have some hidden agenda, or aren't being truthful about their "leanings." What, exactly, do you think these people want to do? I'm curious, because I've been following this for a long time and if there's some secret Plan X that "progressives" are just waiting to implement, it's been a long goddamn time and I haven't seen what it is yet. Sinking your Battleship?

    I generally chalk it up to "I need to label someone a communist, so tag, you're it." It's like the Cold War never ended.

    What does that have to do with the price of basket balls in N. Korea?

    Hmmmm....Touchy, touchy....Strike a nerve did I? Look, I understand you're ashamed to lay it out there in its true glory....I would be too if I constantly had to take such dishonest stances.

    I generally chalk it up to "I need to label someone a communist, so tag, you're it." It's like the Cold War never ended.
    Who cares what you chalk it up to? Regardless, if it goose steps like....Well, you know the rest.

    Unapproved my ME. I think your line of reasoning is utter horsefeathers.

    You have yet to say what is so dishonest about anyone's stances. If you think there's some grand plan, just spit it out.

    And your point, did you even read my post in its totality?

    Two words....Who cares?

    You have yet to say what is so dishonest about anyone's stances. If you think there's some grand plan, just spit it out.
    Well, that's not the truth now is it...I just got done in the other thread schooling you on how your use of MM was a lie, and you admitted it....What? You think because this is a different thread people won't see that?

    Bait seen, and passed on.
    Projection seen, and ignored....I didn't bait anyone...Merely responded to your own baiting, but if you feel you need to lie, and report when you feel slighted, then so be it...Maybe your temperament isn't cut out for internet debate if you can't take passionate discourse..

    Whoa, total misrepresentation of that exchange. My use of that particular clip was a MISTAKE, not a LIE. I guess I see what kind of person I deal with here ... you credit me for acknowledging the error in my source in one thread, then accuse me of lying in another.

    I've been debating on the internet since you were in diapers, son. I didn't report anything. All I see is you giving me ups for actually acknowledging my source for one thing was faulty in one thread, and going all Harvey Dent on me and calling me a liar in another. Well, you know what they say ... fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice ... uh ... you can't get fooled again.
