    Facts Are Stubborn Things

    Please tell me that I am having a bad dream and this IS still America... but before you do review this web page at whitehouse.gov:

    The White House - Blog Post - Facts Are Stubborn Things

    Any Libbos that want my real name so they can turn me, shoot me a PM and I'll gladly give it to you.

    This is very lawsuit worthy, hope the idiot....I mean Obama tries it, reality is about to jack slap him.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Well, if you consider the amount of hyper-partisan misleading information now saturating MSM and the public debate--

    I read this as the WH encouraging people to do a little fact checking before they make up their minds or blindly accept every email and youtube video as factual and objective.

    Perhaps you should do the same. START HERE.

    It would seem that, although Obama and the Dems are making a hard-sell on their program, the real bold-face lies and misinformation are coming from the right.

    Also check out FactCheck.org if you really want to get better informed about the health care issue and who has got most of the FACTS on their side.

    If you're a devout GOPer who only wants to defend your mother-party's position, then I would avoid the FACT sites--they may be too upsetting...

    There are laws against slander and libel. No organization has to worry about anything unless they are portraying something as fact without sufficient evidence. Besides that, I don't think they are asking for names so much as hounding out the different categories of misinformation currently afloat in the public consciousness.

    Fact check web site site???? !!!?? How about looking at the darn Bill yourself instead of letting some liberal hack decide what it says FOR you... no wonder American voters are such an embarrassment!

    Re: Turn in your co-workers @whitehouse.gov

    Looks like they're trying to keep a handle on what chain letters are saying. Where are you getting that this is to "turn your coworkers in?"

    There is a lot of disinformation about health insurance reform out there, spanning from control of personal finances to end of life care. These rumors often travel just below the surface via chain emails or through casual conversation. Since we can’t keep track of all of them here at the White House, we’re asking for your help. If you get an email or see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to flag@whitehouse.gov.

    I'm reporting Dear Leader, Queen Nancy, Henry Taxman, Barney the Banking Queen, and Chris Dudd.

    Re: Turn in your co-workers @whitehouse.gov

    I'm sorry I get most of my trash emails from and have most of my casual conversations with my co-workers...

    How do you justify any administration soliciting information on personal discussions?? unless you happen to be writing from Russia.. that is.

    Care to state what's mis-leading that you disagree with, the opposition has pretty much been spot on from what I see. Give me one specific thing the opposition got wrong and we can discuss it, otherwise this looks like a defensive talking point.
