    So, you can continue to troll if you want, but in doing so you're simply wasting bandwidth.

    That's not a context issue, that's a 'which meaning of the word do you mean" issue. The meaning CAN be discerned thru context, but you do not necessarily NEED context in order to determine it.
    So, your complaint falls flat. Sorry.
    Post #5 identifies a definition, it does not identify context in the entirety of what Obama said. Words and sentences do not live in a vacuum. They are connected inside the presentation. I know that this concept ruins what you were trying to do, here, and I doubt you will take responsibility for your intent, but it doesn't change the fact that you are being dishonest in your presentation. You know it, most of the rest of us know it, and you got caught. Again. As usual.

This is the point that he has refused to respond to.
    This is your false assumption, as previously noted. You may continue to pursue this false assumption, but you do so from willful ignorance.

    I have certainly described how context matters... as have many others. You just refuse to accept it because it messes up your little plan, here. You have refused to answer the questions that I have posed to you. I will keep asking them until you do.

    Explain why you did not include context in your OP and and why you are dishonestly claiming that people are addressing who said it when people are actually addressing the context in which it was said.

    Completely accurate, Goobie. I'm sure you won't admit it... you never have. Doesn't change it's accuracy.

    Your continued willful ignorance has rendered you irrlevant.
    When you gather the courage to admit to yourself that you may be wrong about your assumptions, and then decide that perhaps I -did- had some motive other than what you thought I had, -- as I flatly states was the case -- get back to me.
    Otherwise, feel free to cling to your bigotry.

    It provides -all- the 'context' necessary to answer the question accurately and honestly.
