    No no, Zyphlin won't be a party so such "partisan" non-sense.
    So if you don't trust the DoJ, the media, or other "professionals," who should be doing the investigation?

    I tossed out the obstacles to this moving forward. Those uncomfortable facts that if acknowledged... might be seen as a "Partisan".

    And to make sure anyone reading our discussion sees the "truth", there is an attempted to cast me as an extreme hyper-partisan so BLINDED by ideology that I don't trust anyone!

    Of course, I didn't say I didn't trust them.

    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Statically speaking, how many more white politicians have been convicted of criminal wrong doing, compared to black politicians? I mean, hey, when you do the numbers, my fellow African-Americans make the rest of us look like assholes.

    I'm not surprised in the least when a white man refuses to do anything other than a cash deal with me.

    Since it would be foolish to arrive at that conclusion without running the numbers yourself, why don't you link me to the tallies?

    So you believe that whatever reticence they show is entirely due to your skin color?

    Rather than label an entire group of people as racist, I think I'll adopt the simpler solution and say there's probably something about you or your business that leads people to operate in that fashion, if they do indeed do so.

    I would love for you to. Please, be statiscally accurate.

    Re: Sestak White House scandal called 'impeachable offense'

    I ask you for the crimes that Obama, Sharpton and Jackson have been convicted of and you link me to two websites I've never heard of that cite claims that Sharpton and Jackson did something bad back in the day?

    I know you know what "convicted" means, so I'm confused as to why you think that was responsive.

    I would love for you to. Please, be statiscally accurate.
    Uh, what? Reread your post and then reread mine. You're the one making unfounded claims about the rate of criminality of black politicians v. white, not me. I wouldn't make those claims because I don't know the numbers. Do you?

    Welcome to the real world.
    Again, nonresponsive.

    But if we handed out warnings for every post that didn't deal with the issue at hand, then who would be left to populate the Palin=Nazi/Obama=Criminal threads?

    Re: Sestak White House scandal called 'impeachable offense'

    Should the White House to stay out of party primaries and focus on the tasks at hand? Yes, in an ideal world. This, however, is nothing new and it hardly rises to the level of a major ethics controversy. The allegation that the job offer was somehow a “bribe” in return for Sestak not running in the primary is difficult to support. Sestak, if he had taken a job in the Administration, would not have been permitted to run in the Pennsylvania primary. The Hatch Act prohibits a federal employee from being a candidate for nomination or election to a partisan political office. 5 U.S.C. § 7323(a)(3). He had to choose one or the other, but he could not choose both.


    The job offer may have been a way of getting Sestak out of Specter’s way, but this also is nothing new. Many candidates for top Administration appointments are politically active in the President’s political party. Many are candidates or are considering candidacy in primaries. White House political operatives don’t like contentious fights in their own party primaries and sometimes suggest jobs in the Administration for persons who otherwise would be contenders. For the White House, this is usually a “win-win” situation, giving the Administration politically savvy appointees in the Executive Branch and fewer contentious primaries for the Legislative Branch. This may not be best for voters who have less choice as a result, and Sestak thus should be commended for saying “no”. The job offer, however, is hardly a “bribe” when it is one of two alternatives that are mutually exclusive.
