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.
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?
Where have you gone, Jeremiah Cornelius, a website turns its lonely eyes to you.
Please, sir, enlighten us
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.
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.
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. .
"Terrorism is really just bullying, extreme bullying. And I thought we hated bullying now," Maher said.
"Yeah, liberals hate bullying, all right, but they're not opposed to using it. When they casually throw out words like 'bigot' and 'racist,' it does cow people into avoiding this debate," he said.
That there's some funny:
5. A Harvard professor will find evidence proving evidence proves nothing
6. City of San Francisco will be leveled because steep hills made it handicap inaccessible
7. Nobel-winning economists will admit bafflement that deficit keeps growing despite increased government spending
Read all 10 for good belly laughs. 7 totally smacked of Krugman.
However, as conversation killers go, attacks on my integrity, and calling me an idolator, are real conversation killers.
If your task is to "win" by squelching the dialogue through false accusations, go right ahead, mike foxtrots.
Suppose for a second, a scientific breakthrough comes up with a pill or a procedure, which prevents humans from ever falling sick. Will we be seriously listening to people arguing, it should not be made available, because its introduction would put doctors and hospitals out of business?
You probably think this JE's about you, don't you?
1. Oil prices remain depressed, taking the world economy to the edge of instability. Russia, Iran, China, Venezuela--fertilizer decorates global air circulators. Baleful Barack brings bronze bollocks; Tsar Putin triumphantly treads titanium testicle territory.
In reply to Barbara Hudson, I offered something I'd written over a decade ago, in the "haiku sonnet" form that I fetish for some strange reason.
The state Government Accountability Board's top officials proceeded with a secret probe into coordination between Gov. Scott Walkerâ(TM)s campaign and conservative political groups for months without authorization from the six retired judges who run the board, court records unsealed Friday allege.
The documents filed by a target of the investigation also allege that the board voted to end its involvement in the probe in July but that staff continued to work on it.
The records add ammunition to Republicans in the state Legislature seeking to overhaul or abolish Wisconsinâ(TM)s elections and ethics watchdog agency.
I can't fathom the disquiet about secret investigations.You know darn good and well that those Lefties felt justified when they did it. Isn't that what matters? As long as our moral superiors say it's important, I gotta figure it's important.
No global warming chicanery this time.
UPDATE: It was early, and I thought I was first erroneously. All 'distortion' purely unintentional.
It has been well over a year since I looked at Slashdot.
I see that some of my friends are still writing journal entries. Want them to know I'm still alive.
