Nice... another Ad hominem attack. When are you going to grow a pair and actually address what I am saying?

Ad Hominem attack? Don't make me laugh, little man.

Grow a Pair? You have to be kidding. Let me tell you something sonnyboy, I've actually commanded troops in combat. I have shrappnel STILL under my skin as a constant reminder. I lost a little piece of my body, which was shot off. And you tell me to Grow a Pair? Grow a Pair?! Take your childish, 'bed wetting', accusations, and Stick them up your cheap little ASS.

Now STFU, for once, and start acting like a mature, responsible, and somewhat logical thinking adult. If you are able, of course.

Like I said... not one example. If you think I do believe idiots and liars then why can't you prove it? Hell... you can't even provided any evidence that I do much less any proof.

Same old, same old tendentious pot stirring. Gets boring.

I'm stirring the pot??

:lol:

About all I do around here is debunk your guy's lies and misinformation. Just look at the subject of most of the threads here in the US politics part of AI Jane. Its mostly attacks on Obama and the left. And many of these attacks are the same thing over and over again. If anyone is tendentiously stirring the pot it is you guys.

LOL,

How could you "debunk" anything when your first post was bereft of any pertinent facts?

Try using that thingy called sources (links),for the purpose of backing up your claims,which are still unsupported even now.

There was nothing to address,because you did not back up your claims.

By the way,it was obvious that he was playing with you and used humor to expose your bullshit,and by golly it worked!

ROFLMAO!

Did you forget your coffee?

They posted several links in the thread,to advance a position,while you come here and bullshit with your whining and never once backed up your claims,in the process.That is why they are laughing at you since you are acting like a troll.

You are the one who needs to grow a new pair of ears AND eyes.

Al Gore is a hypocrite. he started his crusade to change the world without changing his own practices first. It was only after he got caught not practicing what he preaches that he changed.

Citing his change after the fact is stupid and evidences nothing.
"And down through the centuries the robes have never failed to keep the public at a respectful distance, inspire a decent awe for the professions, and impart an air of solemnity and mystery that has been as good as money in the bank. The four faculties of theology, philosophy, medicine, and law have been the perennial seedbeds, not only of professional wisdom, but of the quackery and venality so generously exposed to public view by Plato, Rabelais, Molière, Swift, Gibbon, A. E. Housman, H. L. Mencken, and others. What took place in the Greco-Roman as in the Christian world was that fatal shift from leadership to management that marks the decline and fall of civilizations." - taken from a speech by Hugh Nibley

Damn John... take a chill pill why don't ya!

And I'm am sorry if I doubted the existence of your pair because they are obviously made of steel if you have been wounded in combat.

:oops:

And your right... your last childish attack wasn't really an ad hominem. It was just a lame ass insult.

You want me to shut up about this? Then just tell me how you rationalize repeating right wing misinformation that you know isn't true.

Sunsettommy... I didn't provide anything because all the regulars here know what I'm talking about.

Over a year ago when the right was saying that Gore's home renovations caused his house to use more energy I provided plenty of evidence that this was a lie. Then about two months later jt did almost the exact same thing as whats being done here. Jt did this knowing that the information was no longer correct. And ever since then I have pointed out these facts every time someone repeats this smear.

Now John is doing it yet again. And I am calling him on it and, as usual, he is unable to directly respond to it.

Here is just another example of the (quote)Mainstream Media(unquote) and their objective reporting, and why they are not taken seriously anymore: regardless what Buzz tells us.

Quote:Van Jones — unfit for print
The green czar affair should put the final lie to The Times’ ‘objectivity’

By KYLE SMITH

Last Updated: 3:51 AM, September 13, 2009

“This is not an excuse,” the managing editor of The New York Times said after offering the following excuse for completely missing the Van Jones story, except in a blog post: “Our Washington bureau was somewhat short-staffed during the height of the pre-Labor Day vacation period.”

Here’s how long-staffed The New York Times actually is. Long after Glenn Beck reported — back in July — that Jones was history’s first communist czar, and even after Gateway Pundit reported, on Sept. 3, that Jones had signed a wackadoodle 9/11 “truther” petition, The Times sent two reporters to Boston (in a story published Friday, Sept. 4) to pre-report the non-story of Joseph P. Kennedy II’s run for Ted Kennedy’s seat. (He later said he wasn’t interested. Also, the picture of Joseph the Times ran was actually of his brother Max.)

On Sept. 5 (still no word about Van Jones being a Red Green), the Times’ crack political team informed us that the Naked Cowboy was dropping out of the mayoral race.

On Sept. 6, The Times broke the story that “Diane Sawyer, coolly regal, is a born anchor, albeit in an ever-evaporating sea” and, under a piece headlined “Reading Underground,” gave us all food for thought with the subhed, “Even while pressed against strangers, even while stumbling home from a party, New Yorkers read on the subway.”

Granted, the Times must devote a lot of personpower to its vast corrections column. But if it is so flush that it can afford to hire, like the boy with the shovel who follows the elephant in the parade, a personal fact checker for TV critic Alessandra Stanley, surely it can scrounge up an intern to report that there’s a communist truther working as the president’s green jobs czar, or that a congressman was demanding his resignation (Sept. 4).

Jill Abramson, the managing editor, admitted only to being “a beat behind” the story but added that the paper had caught up — after the saga was over. The EMS equivalent of this statement would be, “Sorry I didn’t take your 911 call for four days. At least I was in time for the funeral.”

Although Abramson’s excuse was not an excuse, she proceeded to offer another one: “Mr. Jones was not a high-ranking official.”

Oh. And here I was, thinking that he was “one of Mr. Obama’s top advisers,” as I was told by, well, The Times, on its Caucus blog on Sept. 5. Confusing, confusing.

Only in Timesland can you be in charge of doling out $80 billion in contracts (“A Small White House Program” — The Times’ John M. Broder, on Sept. 6) and be less important than the Naked Cowboy.

The Times was aware of the story, knew it was bigger than most of the stuff it puts in the paper every day, and had plenty of resources to cover it.

But The Times purposely ignored it because it was hoping that the story would go away, because it likes people like Comrade Jones and was hoping he wouldn’t be forced out. The Times doesn’t like people like Glenn Beck and didn’t want him to be able to claim Jones’s scalp. The Times’ prejudice blinded it to the fact that Jones’ fall became obvious on Friday, when a White House spokesman refused to defend him.

Newspaper of record? The Times isn’t so much a newspaper as a clique of high school girls sending IMs to like-minded friends about their feuds and faves and raves and rants. OMFG you guys! It’s no more objective than Beck is.

Jones wasn’t an obscure functionary. There was a huge profile devoted to him in The New Yorker back in January. He was a “legendary figure” in the environmental movement, says The Washington Post. He got four breathless fanzine pages devoted to him in Times columnist Thomas Friedman’s bestselling book, “Hot, Flat and Crowded.” He was a rising cstar, maybe even a supercstar.

To date, The Times has still not told its readers that Jones is or was a communist, calling this notion merely a charge made only by Republicans — we all know how nutty they are! — not as a fact.

Yet Jones said in 2005, “By August [of 1991], I was a communist” and “I met all these young radical people of color — I mean really radical, communists and anarchists. And it was, like, ‘This is what I need to be a part of.’ ” If Comrade Jones has disavowed communism, I couldn’t find any mention of it.

The Times continues to treat communism as a cute campus peccadillo like pot smoking or nude streaking. A Times think piece (Sept. 9) worried that Jones’ fall was “swift and personal.” Being a communist is personal but being the pregnant teen daughter of a vice presidential candidate is public business?

Beck doesn’t claim to be neutral, and neither should The Times. It doesn’t have to report both sides of the news any more than Beck has to give equal time to Janeane Garofalo.

But — in both cases — wouldn’t that be fun?

OMG, what is happening to the Old Gray Lady?
Jefferson: I place economy among the first and important virtues, and public debt as the greatest of dangers. To preserve our independence, we must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt. We must make our choice between economy and liberty, or profusion and servitude. If we can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of caring for them, they will be happy.

They are all going down the tubes. The ones doing best are the Right Leaning ones, but they too are losing readership. That video last week, of all those Jackasses, sitting around bemoaning the fact that the "alternative" media is ruining journalism, is so telling. They never will 'Get It', and they deserve sinking with their old ships of Leftist thinking. I'm waving as they start sinking from sight.

It reminds me of a ship, loaded with Jackasses, sinking while they bray, and bleat, as if that will solve their problem.

Here is something else interesting, and another nail in the coffin of impartiality. The NY Times has a book review, which is supposed to be reputable. It is supposed to be unbiased, correct? Then why hasn't the NY Times taken the time to review one of the biggest selling nonfiction works of this decade?

Quote:Never Reviewed by NYT or WashPost, Mark Levin's 'Liberty and Tyranny' Has Now Sold 1 Million Copies
Tuesday, September 15, 2009
By Terence P. Jeffrey, Editor-in-Chief

[Image: 52161.jpg]

Without ever having been reviewed by either the New York Times or the Washington Post, Mark Levin’s Liberty and Tyranny: A Conservative Manifesto has now sold one million copies, according to its publisher, Threshold Editions.

Levin is a nationally syndicated radio host, president of the Landmark Legal Foundation, and served as chief of staff to Atty. Gen. Ed Meese in the Reagan Justice Department.

Liberty and Tyranny has been riding high on non-fiction bestseller lists ever since it was released in late March. It debuted at No. 1 on the New York Times best seller list and has remained in the Top Ten on that list for 24 straight weeks. It is currently No. 7. (Levin's previous two books, Men in Black: How the Supeme Court is Destroying America and Rescuing Sprite: A Dog Lovers Story of Joy and Anguish, were also New York Times best sellers.)

Despite Liberty and Tyranny’s tremendous sales and high-ranking on the Times’ best seller list, the Times itself has never reviewed the book, only giving it a few blurbs in its ‘Inside the List” feature that runs in the Sunday edition.

The Washington Post has also never reviewed the book.

Liberty and Tyranny: A Conservative Manifesto lays out a vision for America that is rooted in the Constitution and in the Founding Fathers’ vision of strictly limited government and individual self-reliance. As such, its message stands in stark contrast to the agenda being advanced by President Barack Obama, which includes a government takeover of General Motors and a government makeover of the entire U.S. health care system.

NOTE: I also posted this on another thread, within the science section, but had to also include it here, on a thread highlighting the Premier(?) Media's lack of professionalism. Ok Buzz, tell us how stupid and wrong we are, and how great the other side is. Wink1
--------------------------------------


Sad to say, but here is another example of the the Kook media totally getting things wrong, so as to push an agenda. Here is the title and subtitle.

Quote:A triumph for man, a disaster for mankind
Two ships are finishing the first commercial navigation of the fabled North-east Passage. It is an epic moment – but also a vivid sign of climate change in the Arctic

Where do people come up with all this manure? Who knows, but thankfully, there are those out there, who are not about to allow it to go unanswered. Andrew Orlowski's article is informative, but he does have one set of facts wrong, and having lived in Alaska, I caught it right away. He states that

Quote:Much of the Siberian North coast lies outside the Arctic Circle


That, of course, is false. The Arctic Circle is further south of almost All of the northern Siberian coastline. Having not lived that far north, he doesn't realize that the Arcticle Circle is the line where the sun never rises, in winter, and the sun never sets, in summer.

Setting that aside, the rest of the article appears to be legitimate.

Quote:Since the 1930s the route has seen major ports spring up, carrying over 200,000 tons of freight passing through each year, although this declined with the fall of the Soviet Union.

But none of this ever happened, we learned on Saturday. The Independent reported that the journey had been traversed for the very first time, proclaiming that two German ships had completed "the first commercial navigation of the fabled North-east Passage", proclaiming it "a triumph for man, a disaster for mankind". BBC Radio followed suit.

But it is the rest of the story that deserves further reading. If you will go to the link above, he shows where more than one blogger recognized the mistake that the rest of the journalism world failed to see. A simple check at Wikipedia, would have revealed the lie to the story.

The main point here is that the sorry state of reporting is once again on display, for one and all to witness. And yet, the media wrings it's hands about how most people get their twisted and untrue news from the internet, and not their accurate reporting. These folks are pure clowns. And the Independent jumped on this fictitious claim, and ran with it, all because it fit their AGW agenda.
