    Very strange, but I guess that let's you pick and choose who to "argue" with. Those that proove you wrong can be simply ignored, right ??
    I don't read every post; that's correct. When I see something I doubt, I respond. When i see something I have an opinion on I respond. When I learn someone isn't making an argument, but just throwing up links, I see no reason to read them all.

    That goes a long way to explain your incoherent replies in many threads. Thanks for the explanation.

    And yet, you haven't addressed a point for awhile now. Wonder why? No link either. Odd that.

    Here a better explanation... The programmer designed boo software with some kinda weird algorithim. Rather than "killing the mocking bird" and saving the child... it attempts to kill logic and replace it with liberalism.

    In the paly Much Ado about Nothing, Benedict is in a bit of courtship with Beatrice. In a conversation with her he says: "Enough, I am engaged." If we took the Beck model of dishonest discourse, Would could take that quote and say see, Benedict was playing with beatrice, what a jerk, he's already engaged. We'd be wrong. We would not have the context correct at all, missing the meaning of the conversation entirely. Benedict is actually agreeing to kill his freind for Beatrice. Quite different than our beckish reading of the quote.

    Context matters as well. words carry different meanings when placed in the context of a discussion. Pretending they don't is dishonest.
    You and I both know the context around "shared prosperity" and "social justice". Or are you trying to say that when we look at Obama's words such as "collective salvation", "redistributive change", "social justice" etc, that he really means that he's in love with Beatrice and intends to kill his friend for her love?

    One of us is being dishonest, I'll grant you that.

    No, the context you speak of is the made up context by those who refuse to actually listen to what is being said. In all seriousness, those who play with words to create the lie being told but the likes of Beck are dishonest and harm the country. If this were satire, it would be too good. As a serious debate, it is only sad.

    I see that not much has changed in the past month, you still blaming Beck and everyone else for the failure of this President and the negative economic results he has generated. Calling Beck dishonest and harming the country is a liberal ploy when someone refutes liberal rhetoric with actual facts.

    I am still waiting for anyone to tell me what economic prediction Obama has made that has been accurate and why having more people unemployed each month this year vs. last year, lower economic growth this year vs. last year, no fiscal year 2011 budget, and 3 trillion added to the debt the past two years isn't a legitimate topic of discussion and why anyone would claim that things are better today than they were last year?

    They also punted in not submitting a budget for fiscal year 2011 which began on October 1, 2010. Democrats knew that if they submitted a budget for fiscal year 2011 that the election results would be much worse than they are going to be.

    So try commenting on the substance of the words instead of derailing by attacking the source as usual.
