It's an extremely small victory in the struggle against fascism, but obtaining David Gregory's arrest warrant helps underscore the point that too many laws is fertile ground for uneven enforcement, which is a refined form of tyranny.

Conservative Dogs Won't Let Benghazi Bone Go!

It was a lack of trust in the congressional investigation of Benghazi that prompted the formation of the Citizens' Commission on Benghazi in 2013. The founding members of the CCB were U.S Army Maj. Gen. Paul Vallely, U.S. Navy four-star Adm. James Lyons, U.S. Air Force Lt. Gen. Tom McInerney (all retired) and Accuracy in Media Editor Roger Aronoff.
Vallely told WND that he believes Gowdy "has received much pressure not to get to the truth, and we are now coming to the conclusion that there is no longer any intention in Washington, by the leadership of both the Democratic and Republican Parties, to get to the truth."

It's blatantly obvious that after so many investigations, the facts of Benghazi are as settled as Global Warming. Will no one rid us of this turbulent brass?

Shot:

Please, sir, enlighten us
. . .

Chaser:

And don't pretend that you actually want to do that within the confines of the law. You've already demonstrated clearly the contrary.

a) Arrogant demand that I offer an answer.
b) Removal of the truth from the set of possible responses.
c) False claim about anything I've previously demonstrated.


Folks: THAT is how you troll. It's early in the year to talk about the Harry G. Frankfurt Award, but this one's sure to be a contender.

When is judgement not judgement?

When it's some bogus, postmodern word soup!

Your attempt at 'semantic engineering' is almost as feeble as d_r's. You would be claiming that every measurement and observation is 'judgement' or subjective. That is not so. People in the fog of cultural habit and religious mysticism proclaim 'judgements', usually bad ones. Those without such hindrances evaluate the situation and determine an objective cost/benefit ratio. Those are the people you find in leadership positions, and they use things like culture and religion to motivate you to do whatever they say while under the illusion of 'freedom'.

Pardon me while I take a drag on this joint, |===============| and evaluate our new wisdom.

judge
transitive verb
1 : to form an opinion about through careful weighing of evidence and testing of premises
2 : to sit in judgment on : try
3 : to determine or pronounce after inquiry and deliberation
4 : govern, rule â"used of a Hebrew tribal leader
5 : to form an estimate or evaluation of; especially : to form a negative opinion about
6: to hold as an opinion : guess, think <I judge she knew what she was doing>

Yeah, fustakrakich's argument makes about as much sense as cancelling the Vagina Monologues for. . .discriminating against women without vaginas. . .

The gent who wakes up and finds himself a success hasn't been asleep.
