A wonderful quote from that site


"Day after day it's the same thing: Weapons cache, the draft, Social Security, stem cells. It's one lie after another that this party continues to mount, continues to try to base a campaign on because they are filled with rage and hatred."


Just about sums it all up with the democrats Tony

a constructive, friendly idea for steve

well, nearly freindly and constructive.

See, -canvassing- is a great thing. I myself don't canvass because I have a bit of a back problem. When I stand up long I need to sit. When I sit I need to stand. Hence, netsky has a funny posture over his poor dog. lol at self!

Now, maybe you are more able bodied? Maybe you can go to the pubs of Chelsea or the nursing home at Grimswold and recruit some Bush votes. Or drive voters to the polls right to the polls on election day? But please, I guess there is no need to remind you, keep on the left side of your roads.

grin again- I would like to like you better, old fellow,

Just becuase the truth exposes your guy's incompetence doesn't make it wrong, Steve. If I were supporting such a consistent cockup, I'd be plenty ticked, too! And you'll note there are no links in the highly partisan link to verify the claims via a neutral site (60 Minutes, say...)

60 Minutes just blew any credibility it had left after that Rather shameful episode of the forged documents obtained via Kinkos fax. But it is clear the Times wanted to beat them to the punch and spoiled their October surprise scheduled for this upcoming Sunday.

All of these disgraceful outlets exposed their overwhelming desire to get Kerry elected at all costs, in their cases sacrificing any journalistic standards, long ago. This was a final straw.

Cockup? That doesn't sound like a term that the TOS would allow.

I did not know that funny, word, either. Here is its definition from wordreference.com :

cockup
A noun
1 ballup, balls-up, cockup, mess-up

something badly botched or muddled
Category Tree:
act; human_action; human_activity
?^nonaccomplishment; nonachievement
?^mistake; error; fault
?^ballup, balls-up, cockup, mess-up

========

Evie, you know, I have made many cockups, myself.

I somehow doubt the same, of any inference, can be said of yourself.

You are so perfectly unassailable in every sense but the logical.

Is there anything we might enjoyably debate, leaving out entirely silly smilies and references to near-obsolete words?

It's nice to see an M put up a salient point like that.

Diana, i do not know you.

Goddess of the moon. A bright light in the sky.


---the most beautiful old song I know is "My Evening Star"

The author wrote of his wife, just died.

And as his song was published fate took -his- life, t too; this is about 1890. He wrote the song on a passenger train.

i cannot find a web reference to "My Evening Star"- so my memory of the lyric is likely a bit imperfect:

very slowly, with feeling...

my evening star
i wonder where you are
way up so high
like a diamond in the sky.
no matter what i do-oo
i'll still wait here for you-oo
my evening,
my lovely, evening star....

the internet. I must have missed it. Did Rather admit HE was wrong? It wouldn't take nearly so much evidence for the administration to admit an error. The problem is the left wants them to own up to errors in matters where there is a difference of opinion.

Sloppy sarcasm, there, KP. Off to KP duty wit you!

Rather abased himself ra-ther! (brit speak) He aplogized properly and deeply but NOT SOON ENOUGH.


"It wouldn't take nearly so much evidence for the administration to admit an error."

Name us one instance of the Administration ever admitting any error. And then let us see what comes of dissecting the impetous behind any such admission.

I can't think of any ---admitted errors-- of this Administration.

Can anybody help me here?

Nope, I can't think of one either. Oh wait, Bush joked about wishing he hadn't appointed a few people during the last debate.

Dan Rather ran with a news story that was based on bad information. He apologized on the air, both personally and professionally.

The United States INVADED A COUNTRY based on bad information. Over a thousand US soldiers have died as a result, and yet nobody has apologized. In fact Bush says he'd do it all over again even if he'd known the intel was bad.

And I'm sure the families of those dead soldiers really enjoyed his little joke about looking under the furniture for WMDs.

minutes in New York Josh, all innocent people.
Your view on terrorism is very very narrow Josh.
Bush has proven already that terrorist are linked to Iraq. Just take a look at all the terrorist actions going on in Iraq at this very moment in time.
I am glad to see on news 24 that there are many americans with a greater sense of understanding.
I hope those good folk are rewarded with the re-election of someone with guts, Bush of course.
Well you honestly didn't think I was refering to that lying Kerry, did you?

What is the ill logic of this sentence quoted from Steve's post above:


"Bush has proven already that terrorist are linked to Iraq. Just take a look at all the terrorist actions going on in Iraq at this very moment in time."


I ask you to do the honors on Steve's mistaken logic, because an old, mutual acquantance tells me you can argue the points for either political side.

Re: Over 3 times that number of brave soldiers died within

Steve:

The terrorists in Iraq started pouring in AFTER we invaded and the borders opened up. We didn't go in and find them already there.

It's not about a narrow view. It's about priorities and in my opinion, going after the people who actually attacked us should have come first. It didn't. In 2002 Bush said (on camera, to a reporter) that he wasn't all that concerned about bin Laden. He denied having said that during one of the debates but he said it.

"He just doesn't get it."

Re: Over 3 times that number of brave soldiers died within
by SteveGargini / October 27, 2004 10:37 AM PDT

I doubt that Bush meant that he wasn't bothered about Bin Laden. That wouldn't make any sense whatever after 3000+ innocent americans died on 9/11.
That's if he said it at all in the context that you imply. It depends on what was being asked at the time, and you haven't given a full account of the interview.
As far as the terrorists pouring in to Iraq after the invasion, proves to me that they all existed in that part of the world, but not necessarily in Iraq.
Now we can kill them all - now isn't that something.
Our black watch is going to the area where all these punks hang out - I look forward to hearing about a lot of dead terrorists.

Don't let him divert from the case at hand:
by netsky / October 27, 2004 4:23 AM PDT

This Bush jerk cannot ever admit an error.

He's made many documented errors.

He cannot ever admit an error.

His ego-crazy cohorts, the ones who will vote multiple times for him if they can, cannot admit that Bush has made documented errors.

His cohorts exhort, retort, contort until blue in their faces that Bush has never made an error.

This would seem like a laughable oversimplification until the reasoning reader looks around at this SE place. He sees that yeah, netsky is not exagerating one little bit.

Bring up this question of the fumbled war effort, and you get "terrorists want Kerry for president.

Bring up this question, that question, any question of credibility or Halliburton raping our war effort to pocket unearned milliongs, and you get 'what are you, anti-American?

NO, i am not. I am for debate and logic and substance. I find I am an American of shrinking size in partisan rallying crowd of 100% Amerikans.

I really didnt care much, either way -- whether he apologized or not. I was saying that, according to his own words, his apology rang hollow.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
