The object of paraphrasing is not to change the meaning of the sentence, which you did. You act just like Rush by adding, subtracting, and changing the intent of the actual item to suit your needs. Not good. But you are a winger in training.

"At least he won't get elected."

After this certain Senator kept interrupting her answers about the Benghazi deaths, Clinton's comment included the following: "With all due respect, the fact is we had four dead Americans. Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided that they’d they go kill some Americans? What difference at this point does it make? It is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, Senator." Now that is factual, mini.

Well, as they say, even a blind squirrel will find an acorn. But, part of the release stated that at this time they have found no legal wrong doing but are continuing the investigation. The whole foreign national program EB5 should be done away with. But that is for later. If the guy is found to have violated some laws, then can his butt. Loved your support for Vitter. Great explaination....Now, if you had gotten that Hillary thing factual.

Gee, mini, at least he won't get elected. Kinda different from the Republicans like Vitter and Sanford. At least he won't get elected. that says something for your party.

Detroit Bankrupt should be a warning to all you folks who want to hire more cops and more fire fighters and more teachers.. These Unions force YOU the taxpayer to pay these people not only when they are working but until the end of their time unless you die first.

The obvious is so unseen by the left. They cannot do math, they think money grows on trees and they think everything is free.

You cannot continue to hire people well you continue to pay for the ones that have left. Every Policeman, Firefighter, and school teacher need to be FORCED to fund a 401k savings or anything of its like the years they work with match from their employer..but when they leave their employer they have NO MORE money coming.. What they have saved and had matched is ALL they should get.

Agreed, DustOff.

North Dakota's booming economy is full of all kinds of people taking advantage of a plethora of opportunities for work.

Here's a un-socially engineered result: those "all kinds of people" working here? Many are choosing to settle here, either for a while or long-term.

A much better result than by force...

DustOff, thanks for pointing out one of those regrettable flaws sometimes found in "enlightened" liberal men. I know of others, but I digress.

Most, admittedly not all, but most of the conservative men I know are decent, hard-working fellows with lots of common sense, trying to do their best for their wives and families.

And to be fair, there are probably lots of decent, hard-working liberal men out there, trying to do their best as well.

But if there's one thing that irks me, it's a double standard. For Democrats to imply that they are the only party looking out for women is just so much disingenuous claptrap, if we go by examples of their "always" treating women well.

"Well, loco, we certainly won't hold those choices against you..."

Your new name should be "centerishdoesntgetit" because those Democrat women already have held my choices against me. In spades.

"You must be happy with your subservient role in the Republican male world."

Spoken like a true hyperpartisan liberal Democrat, centerish. You really have no idea, but you just keep slinging the hash. For you, it'll never get old.

Loco does an unborn baby have rights?

Or is it just at the mercy of what its mom wants to do with it?

How about the fathers rights? That baby is half his. Does that mean men like you have no rights????

Stand your ground. The baby cannot act in self defense.. so the mother can kill him/her at will.

Well, loco, we certainly won't hold those choices against you, except your blind support of the Republican agenda against women. You support the Republican opposition(and votes) against equal pay for women? You want these old white men to decide what type of medical services you, your daughters, granddaughters, and all other young women have to have for a pregnancy? You support women as second class citizens like the Republican men want? Give me a break. My children and grandchildren deserve more. You must be happy with your subservient role in the Republican male world.

"Your party attacks women, minorities, middle and low income Americans."

If you're thinking that "my party" is the Republican party, I'd have to say that as low-to-middle class incomed woman, I haven't yet been "attacked" by Republicans.

On the other hand, some choices that I've made for my life have been largely ridiculed and scoffed at by Democrats. Interestingly, most of them were women.

"But, your post did not explain that and getting to the source of your statement was not what people were going to do. Your intent was to color the situation."

Prove that last statement, centerish.

Well, I did think that I was blogging with adults, those that might not believe everything they read, like me.

So I should explain everything I post for everybody? I don't think so.

centerish is the best example of why not: because hard-core liberal partisans will never try to understand. Why should they? They have their truth, and their posts continue to illustrate that fact quite well.

But don't worry, centerish. You have lots of friends on here. Veritas seems particularly chummy.

Obama took the low road in his speech. He divided he did not unite his people.

As Usual Obama is stuck with the fact he is black and therefore can never ever show any class about explaining the High road to his brothers.. He is as racist as one can be as proven by his speeches.. by his actions and by his beer summits and nose protruding into personal business which is no business of the President of the USA>>

Why didn't Obama make a speech that went something like this.

Trayvon Martin Could Have been me. He could have carried on a conversation with Zimmerman and then walked away. He could have gone on to use the many opportunities in this world for kids who wish to go on to college and make something of their lives.. Look at Colin Powell, Condi Rice, Bill Cosby, and all the other great blacks who took the high road and advanced themselves. If I am able to be POTUS then Trayvon and young African Americans like him could strive for that goal too.

Instead Trayvon took the other avenue that many African Americans take. He choose to try to fight his way out of the world he was born in instead of trying to educate himself out of it.

My African American brothers we need to come together and strive to end out of wedlock marriages, strive to educate our children and be their father from day one. There is so much we can do if we would just help ourselves to Government opportunities

The hooples are using Trayvon Martin's death as an excuse to project their own deep-seated issues with racism.

The truth, the truth, you would not know the truth if it hit you in the face. There use to be a lot of good republicans in the Congress but they have been run off or passed on. The rest of the good ones are so afraid of the radical right wing that they hide all the time. Your party attacks women, minorities, middle and low income Americans. That certainly is different from the previous Republicans. Everyone has some conservative views and some liberal views in their life. The difference is that the modern republican hypocritically denies any thing that is liberal even though they will eagerly accept liberal things that are to their advantage.

But, your post did not explain that and getting to the source of your statement was not what people were going to do. Your intent was to color the situation. Your post was irrelevant to the martin situation but you used it just like Rush and the boys would. You're a good conservative, right wing blogger.

"People like dusty, billdoesnt, and loco , among others, will ruin the good parts of the party and drag it down."

Tell the truth, centerish. You don't think there are any "good parts" of the Republican party. Your posts have proven it over and again.

And please, try to look at things without your hyperpartisan glasses on for once. I posted the blog source because it gave more complete info on the Jacksonville double homicide that was alluded to. For instance, it told that the two guys were murdered because somebody was after their drug stash. That was info not available on some other, what you would term right-wing, sites.

I'm interested in truth. If you were as centerish as your moniker implies, you'd already know that.

Keep slinging that hash of yours. To you, it ain't old yet.

Good post, billlwillnevereverevergetit. Your comments have no factual basis and as usual are off the wall and erroneous. But your hatred and arrogance always comes through. You never challenge what is presented by liberals because it is factual and you don't care about the facts. You would be hilarious in a study group or better yet a debate. It does seem that when dusty takes a break, you show up in full force with outlandish comments and extremely biased opinions. Without a doubt, intelligence and common sense have never been a part of your personal behavior. Of the last ten presidents, no one has been worse than Bush II and the Republican stable of candidates house Nixon and Reagan as well. The best of the lot has been Bush I. With nothing to defend, no wonder you act the fool.
