    I don't believe I've used them. Unless you mean NPR, which is overall fairly accurate. Accuracy means credible.

    "Accuracy" to you would mean anything that pushes the Leftist agenda you espouse.

    As opposed to your pushing the "right wing" agenda? Maybe you should try saying this stuff out loud. Record yourself. You might then get an idea on ow it sounds.

    No, I mean accuracy, as in being accurate. This is important to credibility.

    And yet you are more than willing to dismiss conservative sources like American Spectator, Newsmax, et al. but you would lap up a Liberal hitpiece from DailyKooks.

    I've never used the DailyKos, ever. So, I guess you would be wrong about that as well.

    However, being conservative or liberal alone doesn't disqualify a source. Being inaccurate does. If the American Spectator, which I've never read, was accurate, that would make them a credible source. If they are not accurate, they lose credibility. This seems simple enough, doesn't it?

    Tell that to Survivor Winner Hatch. He failed to pay his taxes on the $1 million that he won. Believing that he didn't have to. Of course he was wrong. But the IRS slapped a lawsuit on him for it...without working with him on it first. He went to a federal prison for 15 months.

    point being is that the IRS doesn't HAVE to work with you. It can slap you with a lawsuit at any time.

    And again the two are linked. You don't do one you get fined, don't get that fine payed you go to jail. You can't have one without the other.

    And lets get real here. They may call it a tax but it is not a tax. It is a fine.

    Main Entry: 2tax
    Function: noun
    Usage: often attributive
    Date: 14th century
    1 a : a charge usually of money imposed by authority on persons or property for public purposes b : a sum levied on members of an organization to defray expenses
    2 : a heavy demand
    Defination of Tax

    Main Entry: 1fine
    Pronunciation: \ˈfīn\
    Function: noun
    Etymology: Middle English, from Anglo-French fin, fine, from Latin finis boundary, end
    Date: 13th century
    1 obsolete : end, conclusion
    2 : a compromise of a fictitious suit used as a form of conveyance of lands
    3 a : a sum imposed as punishment for an offense b : a forfeiture or penalty paid to an injured party in a civil action

    in fine : in short
    Defination of Fine

    You only get this "tax" if you don't have health insurance. IE it is a punishment for not having health insurance.

    Here is post #75

    The left wants this, they're in the majority and they're going to get it. Kinda like how the right got things under Bush.

    I find things like the Patriot Act and the War in Iraq to be just as harmful to this country (if not more so) as government healthcare. Yet the right championed these causes and told me to F off for not being a patriot.

    Now that something they find to be just as distasteful to them is passing, they expect me to feel the same. Well, I won't. I have little compassion and absolutely no sympathy for them. Now their ox is getting gored ..good! It's the nature of partisan politics. I'll just sit here and relish the moment
    Again, you oppose the Democratic Health Care bill.

    But, you lack of "compassion" and "sympathy" for Conservatives or Republicans (I am not sure which or both so forgive me or correct me if I on this element) allows you to cheer against them. Did I capture that correctly?

    I should note that I am no fan of the Patriot Act. But, I do not see how it even touches my life and have not noticed it to date except at the airports. The Health Care bill is not only trampling on the constitution in significant ways, but it also appears to be taking away my level of health care.
