    I'm sorry, did you not read what I wrote? I'll write it really slow this time:

    34 WARSHIPS.

    Can you please explain how that is not a lie? Here I'll explain to you how it is a lie:

    Will 34 warships accompany Obama to India? - The Rumor Doctor - Stripes

    Sure enough, there are not 34 ships – and there isn’t an aircraft carrier – supporting the president’s trip, said a defense official, who declined to provide any information on security measures for presidential trips.

    Pentagon press secretary Geoff Morrell called the notion of sending so many warships to protect the president “comical.”

    “I will take the liberty this time of dismissing as absolutely absurd this notion that somehow we were deploying 10 percent of the Navy -- some 34 ships and an aircraft carrier -- in support of the president's trip to Asia,” Morrell told reporters on Thursday.

    Morrell would not talk about the president’s security arrangements other than to say “nothing close” to the armada reported in the Indian press is involved.
    Now you explain how it's not a lie. Thanks!

    A poorly sourced story sure. An intentional lie? What's your proof that is the case?

    A poorly sourced story that you and many conservatives bit on, hook line and sinker, because even though it was a laughably absurd claim, it fit that pre-conceived narrative in your head.

    Does your dishonesty know no bounds Jack?

    Okay, here I'll explain to you because I know your dishonesty is so wide that it doesn't let you see the other side of the door. A poorly sourced story would be when though the details are somewhat off, the overall idea behind it is still true. "A poorly sourced story" wouldn't have facts which are not only wrong, they're entirely false. A poorly sourced story is the one about Obama's 'madrassa' school. The facts were somewhat right. Obama did attend a school with Muslims (and Christians and Buddhists), he did learn about Islamic culture (along with Buddhist and Christian culture). That's a poorly sourced story. A lie would be saying he's a Muslim. Or that he's using 10% of the ****ing Navy on a trip to India. Do you get what a lie is now Jack?

    How exactly is the party of outsourcing fact checking to India going to fix the unemployment rate?

    Who's Jack? One thing about your little rant here, do you know the parameters of Obama's security while in India? My guess is no, no you don't. So let's not get carried away with your flawed thinking here.

    What do you make of this?:

    Well, we could stop demonizing success, that would be a start.

    Do you consider getting rich, the sole source of success?

    (Even if getting one person rich, cost many others their jobs/houses/possessions?)

    Maybe not in all facets, but it is a by product of success is it not?

    (Even if getting one person rich, cost many others their jobs/houses/possessions?)
    What? wait a minute...You'll have to explain this to me....Does someone attaining wealth come at the cost of anthers lost opportunity?

    Success means many different things j-mac.

    You wanna know another reason for Americas decline. Greed.

    If I become the best firefighter in the world, I'd consider myself ****ing successful. Would I make alot of money... no!

    You're an ex military guy. If you became the best sniper in your division. Would you consider that being a success? Even if you're not getting paid for that?

    You can have all the money in the world, and not have accomplished **** all. I'd rather have done something meaningful with my life, then have heeps and heeps of cash that I earned sitting behind some desk denying people Health Care Coverage to keep a healthy profit margin.
