• My mind was made up before the convention.

• I was undecided but now favor Obama.

• I was undecided but now favor Romney.

• I switched to Obama.

• I switched to Romney.

“Hmm your sentence ‘Simply saying it is in a book or on a website will not suffice’ invalidates every post you have ever made on any subject on this website.”

No it does not, and simply taking my comment out of context proves your willingness to post incorrect information, not to mention posting something I never said. .

I said, “All information needs to be cautiously vetted to insure its veracity. Simply saying it is in a book or on a website will not suffice." Why are you so against the posting of correct information?

You are suggesting first this is a contest between qualifeid candidates and nothing could be further from the truth.

It's too bad we have a 2 party system in light of the fact that neither the republican candidate nor the democratic incumbent are fit to be in charge of this country. Government has gotten to big, it specializes in special interest groups and not one is in favor of getting us out of this sink hole they have created. I will be writing in a candidate and not voting for either of these liars

Hmm your sentence "Simply saying it is in a book or on a website will not suffice" invalidates every post you have ever made on any subject on this website. Thanks for finally showing in your own words you are full of baloney.

The results of Obama's soft power and leading from behind with appeasement is now on full display for all to see.

And Progressives winced at the comparison to Jimmy Carter.

“I paraphrased your post down below. I think I came very close…”

No, you did not come even close. Your claim was, “… and anson says everything on the internet and all books are lies.”

And I said, “All information needs to be cautiously vetted to insure its veracity. Simply saying it is in a book or on a website will not suffice." Pointing out that information needs to checked is not the same as saying everything on the internet and in all books are lies. Hey, what YOU said was ... uhh, incorrect! Son-of-a-gun!

"I will now ask you to show where I have ever made such a statement."

I paraphrased your post down below. I think I came very close:

"Websites are notoriously unreliable sources of information – particularly any site operated by Right Wing Loons and I can show you a history book that says if you sail west from the Old World you will fall off the edge of the earth. All information needs to be cautiously vetted to insure its veracity. Simply saying it is in a book or on a website will not suffice."

"not all you tube videos are opinions. you would be well served to remember that. and anson says everything on the internet and all books are lies."

True, not all are, only the vast majority. You would be well served to remember that.

As for anson, even though I disagree with about half of the claptrap that comes from him, he has a point on this one. Too much of what you see on the internet is someone's opinion. Creative editing also comes into play as well..

Except when it shows the inconvenient reality of those booing a fixed "vote" on the Democratic God & Israel party platform.

“Hahaha anson!! Condeming internet facts!”

Actually I said that is always important to verify any information, be it print, broadcast or I-Net to make certain it is not just more nonsensical blather.

And yes, I watched the video and chose not to embarrass you by reporting on it. But since you asked – it is just more of the usual Right Wing Loon claptrap. Simple as that.

“… someone stating facts that can be verified on any website or history book is unreliable.”

Websites are notoriously unreliable sources of information – particularly any site operated by Right Wing Loons and I can show you a history book that says if you sail west from the Old World you will fall off the edge of the earth. All information needs to be cautiously vetted to insure its veracity. Simply saying it is in a book or on a website will not suffice.

Heck, you can say that you saw something on the newspapers website – for example Obama’s birth certificate is a fraud – or Obama’s first EO was to hide his records – or … well you get the point. Simply because it appeared here in no way makes it factual. Do you agree?

Enough Dems had to vote in favor of the Iraq resolution or face losing their own election.

I know chuckles, someone stating facts that can be verified on any website or history book is unreliable. Nothing that proves the left wrong is reliable to you kool-aid drinkers.

@Linda

"the Dems in Congress VOTED FOR the Iraq war so they are complicit."

More Dems voted against it than voted for it. Just a quick fact check for you.

@TJ

You can post about your little you tube video all you want, still makes it an unreliable source.

You should definitely hate romney because hes rich and your not. Once again all you liberals get on youtube and watch " your guide to the republican party " i know none of you will aknowlege the FACTS given because they shame you, and will make you feel foolish, even anson will disregard them even though he breathes facts and sources. Buuut, when corrected, you liberals resent, then in your embarssment...you lie, dont feel bad, its your nature as fascists to do that
