To the editor: Perfect examples of phlyarologists are the valley amigos who distort facts and belittle opposing views. Their poor attempts at rebuking facts is pathetic at best and deceitful at worst....

REPORT: Al Qaeda terrorists at Gitmo treated better than veterans...

eb, you are a veteran. How do you feel about our enemies being treated better than our veterans?

Al Sharpton Defends Racist Rant: 'It Was Only One Jew'...

Al Sharpton’s history of hate is so voluminous and well documented, where does one even begin? The time he disparaged Jews as “diamond merchants” during the unrest of the infamous Crown Heights riots? Or when Sharpton tried goading NYC’s Jewish community into an all-out fistfight, saying “If the Jews want to get it on, tell them to pin their yarmulkes back and come over to my house”? How about referring to the Jewish owner of Freddy’s Fashion Mart, Fred Harari, as a “white interloper” for seeking to expand his business in Harlem?

But those tirades were just Sharpton’s anti-semitic ones. He’s also sermonized on “Greek homos” and “crackas” as well as bombarded former NYC Mayor David Dinkins with a barrage of N-bombs.

Yet Al still has a

New Record: Price of Gas Above $3 Gallon for 1,245 Days... (Gas was $1.85 when Bush left office. where's the outrage, lefties?)

Here's a good one:

CNN 2008: High gas prices = BUSH!!! | CNN 2011: High gas prices = no easy answers (Now that's funny right there.)

VA News:

VA Admits 23 Veteran Deaths Linked to Delays in Care..

Kristof, Krugman, Klein All Touted VA As Healthcare Model...

Networks Hype Gas Prices 4 Times More for Bush, Than Obama

(Nope. No bias here.)

Coverage during the time periods differed not only in quantity, but in tone as well. During Bush’s tenure, gas prices were a huge economic threat and cause of suffering. The networks also used the high gas prices to attack the administration. In 2012, the networks aired mostly matter-of-fact stories on the rising gas prices, and worried that they would hi

Right, Moteman.

Despite their repeated claims, my challange for them to prove even one of my posts/links wrong has gone unanswered. They couldn't even prove a single one incorrect.

You'd think that if you were wrong so often, it would give you pause to question your beliefs, wouldn't you?

Some people learn a lot from their mistakes, some learn nothing.

Hagrid the main problem I have seen with the liberals on here and I think applies to them all, is they are told the news from what ever far left sources they like. They take what they are told as gospel. They do not do research or question what they are told. Then when they are confronted with facts that they can't compute they start with the name calling, cutting on conservative sources they have never listened to, read, or watched. Comrade mav, the numerous cores, and eb are good examples of this. I forgot to add bob atkinson's letters to the list.

"Goodness, no one credible would print lies, continually harass a candidate’s doctor, disrupt local hospital staff, or even offer to pay locals to give 'quotes' about her health records to be included in a 'research book' by a public university professor (your tax dollars at work?) which the candidate’s attorney will need to respond to," Palin wrote.

"Hey! Hillary’s brain is off-limits! Leave her health records alone! Democrats are right -- scouring records of a female candidate is just politics of personal destruction, and for the media to engage in it would be unfair, unethical, and absolutely UNPRECEDENTED. You can’t probe a woman like that because, well, it’s a war on women!

Bunch of sexist, big meanies engaging in something heretofore unheard of, for shame.

America, you deserve fair and consistent coverage of relevant issues before deciding a Presidential/Vice Presidential ticket, so have faith the agenda-less media will refuse to push whispers and wildly inaccurate information about a partisan politician’s body part. ........

Maverick, please explain why you insist on calling us "bootlickers." The conservative minded people do not lick boots, we work, or worked for what we have, we don't blame Monsanto for our problems, we don't smoke dope to get a release from control of "the man," we don't blame others for our failures. If anyone licks anything is liberals and you guys don't lick boots, but I assure you it is below the belt, and most likely is for a payment in narcotics, or food stamps.

Swiss Voters Reject $25/hour Minimum Wage townhall****/tipsheet/christinerousselle/2014/05/18/swiss-voters-reject-25hr-minimum-wage-n1839913

Worried about upsetting Switzerland's strong economy or driving its high costs even higher, more than three-quarters of Swiss voters rejected a plan Sunday to create the world's highest minimum wage.

A tally by Swiss TV showed that with votes counted in all 26 of the Alpine nation's cantons (states), the Swiss trade union's idea of making the minimum wage 22 Swiss francs ($24.70) per hour fell flat by a vote of 76.3 percent opposed and 23.7 percent in favor.

“Reference pricing” another way that ObamaCare will bite into wallets hotair(dot)com/archives/2014/05/16/reference-pricing-another-way-that-obamacare-will-bite-into-wallets/

Consumers who bought into the “ObamaCare will bend the cost curve downward” promise have had a tough year or so. First premiums shot upward, and deductibles did the same. Next, insurers sharply narrowed provider networks, forcing many consumers to pay out of pocket if they want to “keep their doctor,” as Barack Obama promised. Today, the Associated Press reports on another part of ObamaCare policy that may render insurance inadequate altogether — and consumers won’t know it until the bill hits:

The Obama administration has given the go-ahead for a new cost-control strategy called “reference pricing.” It lets insurers and employers put a dollar limit on what health plans pay for some expensive procedures, such as knee and hip replacements.

mav, here's a chance for you to prove your relevence/validity.

Take one post that I've made that you attribute to Fox News, and prove it wrong.

That should be easy, right?

Opinions are not proof. FACTS are.

If you can't......

mav, perhaps if you watched Fox News, you'd have answers to all those many, many questions you were unable to give us.

You DO know that Fox News has more viewers than almost all the other cable news put together.

Well, perhaps your handlers won't let you know that.

mav: "This type of information exchange is primarily for people who can formulate their own opinions"

Problem is, your opinions are not supportable. We've been kind, and have asked you to try. You have failed each and every time.

When one's opinions are unsupportable, one needs to reevaluate one's opinions.

Comrade mav. you need to calm down and go get your blood pressure checked. My life is just fine and very rewarding. Watching Fox News and Oreiley Factor or listing to Rush and Hannity hasn't changed it. Maybe you need to start watching and listing and you wouldn't be so vitriolic and a candidate for a stroke. Plus you might be able to go through life with out wearing those tin foil hats.

Moteman, why would you pay for any information? You bootlickers get your brains washed for free at Faux, Limbaugh and Hannity gray matter laundramat. This type of information exchange is primarily for people who can formulate their own opinions and not parrot talk show compost. You can go ahead and go thru life with blinders on and deny that our quality of life is being diminished by lying politicians, corporate media and the wealthy elite who think they deserve to structure our lives. You can also deny the poisons in our air, food and water. You keep on licking the boots of the elite and lead a fools life because ignorance is bliss and you are among the most blissful.

I guess my sternly worded email worked.

SunTrust Reverses Decision On Conservative Benham Brothers dailycaller(dot)com/2014/05/16/suntrust-reverses-decision-on-conservative-benham-brothers/

After an uproar from conservative customers, SunTrust Banks announced Friday afternoon that the decision to end its relationship with real estate entrepreneurs David and Jason Benham had been reversed. Earlier Friday, The Daily Caller reported that SunTrust Banks had pulled all of its listed properties with the Benham brothers’ bank-owned property business. The move came just a week after HGTV announced it was canceling a planned home renovation show hosted by the Benhams because of their conservative views on abortion and gay marriage.

RPG,no evidence for FBI to charge Bin Laden but enuf to go to war. The FBI’s "Most Wanted Terrorist" webpage on "Usama bin Laden" does not list the 9/11 attacks as one of the crimes for which he is wanted. It does list bombings in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, and Nairobi as terrorist acts for which he is wanted. But it makes no mention of 9/11.10 In 2006, Rex Tomb, then the FBI’s chief of investigative publicity, was asked why not. He replied: "The reason why 9/11 is not mentioned on Usama Bin Laden’s Most Wanted page is because the FBI has no hard evidence connecting Bin Laden to 9/11."11 Before you refr to the CIA tape confession you must realize that the gov't has refused to authenticate the tape that had an actor posing as Bin Laden.
