Would a Research 2000 poll conducted in July that showed a 20-point regional variation in "birther" beliefs suffice?"Do you believe that Barack Obama was born in the United States of America or not?"NortheastYes - 93%No - 4%Not Sure - 3%SouthYes - 47% (-46)No - 28 (+24)Not Sure - 30 (+27)MidwestYes - 90%No - 6%Not Sure - 4%WestYes - 87%No - 6%Not Sure - 6%This is why it is important to not rely on shitty sources.It is infuriating that you respond with a Valley Girl...
Plenty more examples of him mildly stumbling throughout some of the hundreds of impromptu and unscripted speeches and interviews he has given?How often do you speak extemporaneously, at length, in front of people?It's not a matter of pretending, it is a matter of America having a long and documented history and some people being capable of noticing patterns in that history. Further than that, it is also a matter of some people actually living and having very deep roots in...
jazzguru:For example?NoahJ:Yes, the Constitution. That is what irks them so. That is why they were so angry about domestic spying… hmmWhen someone seriously denies the birther movement is fundamentally racist that person cannot be reasoned with, because the evidence against the claims is so unassailable that only racism and/or pure stupidity can keep the belief alive.
“Communist” has long been a buzzword for race hate in the South. The illegal immigrant issue is what made a Southern representative embarrass himself. It would be dishonest to portray all opponents of healthcare reform as racist. It would be naïve to deny that racism motivates a great deal of right-wing thinking as manifest in many right-wing voting patterns, the way many right-wing politicians form their appeals to voters, and how many right-wing voters order their...
Wonderful. I have merely demonstrated that your conclusion is faulty and based more on irrational paranoia than evidence.What is "it", specifically?These are your direct statements we are dealing with.You said, " A reasonable person can find a friend or family member to double up with for a period of time."It is not a straw man to then ask if that means someone who cannot is "unreasonable". If you are so afraid of your own statements then you should not make them.What...
I felt like shouting at Obama quite a few times, of course I wouldn't have shouted "YOU LIE!" after a statement that is factually accurate (no bill before Congress authorizes the coverage of illegal aliens, that is a plain fact). When he said we should mandate the purchase of private health insurance I wanted Michelle to go down to the podium and slap him.
Lesson plans are nowhere mentioned. Do they have to be? • Collecting data on America's schools and disseminating research.• Focusing national attention on key educational issues.Especially the second bullet point.No reasonable argument can be made that the ED broke the law by publishing voluntary lesson plans. It is an absurdity.
"Face to face", yes, but real life, no. We had 12 kids absent today because their parents were afraid we might show the Obama speech. The school sent a letter out last week saying we would review it and show it during a social studies class, with students not wanting to see the speech able to go somewhere else. 12 The principal received over 50 "my kid ain't comin' Tuesday" e-mails last week. 50+ Would these people be so stupid if it were not easy to hide behind...
And what of the quote that portrays the government support as adequate, how does that support your characterization of the piece as "a critique about lack of government resources available for the growing homeless"?Does it? According to what?So if your family dies and your friends cannot help you are "unreasonable"?This is absurd, purely absurd and ridiculous. The poor are now "unreasonable"?I think maybe "reasonable" is a very poor choice of words or perhaps your disdain...
