Yeah, such terrible stuff that several federal judges have already agreed with me, so ridiculous that the issue is now sitting in the Supreme court... as yet undecided, and that even though the current Supreme court is packed with Big business patsies.


... Agreed with you?! You've made no constitutional argument. You agreed you would, after you got over your cold, or dyed your hair, or gave your kid a bath or whatever it was this time. I'm not asking for a legal presentation, just in your own words - back up that mandate.

... And I am still waiting.

Well, since you claim ignorance, its that whole ability of the government to make rules necessary for the safety and security of the nation.

Beyond that, I have not said you have no grounds for your view, just that your ignorance of the opposition makes you sound like a raving lunatic instead of a legitimate debater.

MY views is that its far more constitutional than this idea that corporations have the right to give whatever they want to political campaigns in the name of free speech.. a LOT more. Yet, strangely, the same people who seem to opposed to one idea see no problem with the other.

I think we need a fully nationalized healthcare system.

...Univision, the Spanish language TV network, is the only one with the balls to report this kind of thing.

Its bad for everyone. Liberal news probably wont report something like that right before the presidential election, because it could hurt Obama somehow, since it happened while he was in charge of law enforcement. Conservative news won't report that because it could hurt Romney. His own family is illegally purchasing guns and running them to their compounds in Mexico.
And the media in the middle doesn't hold anyone's feet to the fire unless its sensationalist.

I'm not convinced there is a "media in the middle" anymore that isn't related to Comedy Central.

Is there a left tilt to the media's coverage of the news? If there is, can it be proven? And if it can be proven, can the consequences be quantified in a meaningful way? Acclaimed UCLA Professor of Political Science and Economics, Tim Groseclose, has the startling answers in this new Prager University course. Whatever you do, don't miss his final conclusion.

... Phats, I wouldn't argue with what the man says, but you have to wonder how skewed his research was in his development of that "scale" he created.

... It's similar in my mind to scientists with a vested career/financial interest supporting the global warming religion. Research strongly tends to lean the direction they wish it to, to support their own interests, and what is in their minds a foregone conclusion.

... Bias is extreme in most major media, no argument, but that scale.... I dunno'.

... Just saying.

Interesting comparison, because when you actually LOOK at the data, it turns out that this whol global climate change idea is very strongly based by evidence and not belief at all.

Since you apparently feel nobel laureates and similar acclaim are just for suckers and the stupid, I consider that a compliment.

It's interesting in my mind that the only "scandals" you ever seem to find are related to Democrats. Why is that, Phatscotty?

And I put "scandals" in quotes because it's not really a scandal so much as it is standard cronyism.

Do you have something that's not four years old?

And as I mentioned to Phatscotty, the only "scandals" you seem to ever find are ones that involve Republicans. Why is that?
