Precedent is a funny thing...


I've heard the "right wingers" here talk about how Christie, if found guilty, should be strung up... so to speak.

I have yet to here a "left winger" say the same about a man, that if common sense is used, and political affiliation are thrown out, say the same about the Great and Powerful Oz-bama...

That is where credibility gets lost.


Has anyone put this Pres. and this congress in the "biggest lemon" thread...?

You'd have a better shot at peace in the Middle East than limiting one of Spinner's responses to just under the word count of War and Peace.

I enjoy his long winded posts.

I have steadily worked to reduce mine at a certain liberal friends request. Though I have held back on calling foul a few times when other liberals claim I am being trite or short. :beer: It seems I cannot make them happy no matter how hard I try.

What I don't get is, what do the people that complain about posts being too long read? 500 words is nothing on any serious topic. I doubt most of my "long" posts are beyond that. Given that any fairly educated person should be able to read at least 250 words per minute, it's not that much. It maybe just that I probably read in the ballpark of 50,000 words a day, so a few hundred doesn't seem like much. Now off to read and comment on a 6,000 word report.

Of course, for the liberals. They will never be happy. Would you be if you believe what they believe? :huh:

That's because most of us only have 30 seconds or less bases on our day job to read AND respond to a thread, which usually means reading other posts besides your epic rambling diatribes. You should recognize that most people give up with you not because you've one but because they don't have the time to address your tome of at times (not all of the time, not even most of the time but some of the time) foolishness.

I mean really, who the fugg has all of these graphs and other figures ready at hand that you seem to pull out of thin air for responses to the posts of others in the CIF? What the fugg do you do all day? Are you really working? Do you really have a real job? Or are you still living in your parents' basement?

SpinnerMan wrote:... those such as yourself are not open minded enough to contemplate how an alternative solution would work. Your way is the only way that you consider and not the alternatives proposed which are given no serious consideration. All liberal thinking must be in the rigid box just like any other religious zealot. So you will never decide that while we have big government it is too big and it is time to downsize. It's just not a possibility that you are open to.
You don't really know me, or liberals, do you? IN contrast to your notion of liberalism, liberalism is actually defined as being open to, and tolerant of, other's views and practices, within a staunch belief in freedom and equality. here's a refresher...http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liberalism

But you do have your very well defined stereotype of "liberal" think. So ya got that going for you ... generally, in the wrong direction.

could have fooled me....
Let's go back to the "what to cut from big government" part of this. I know where a lot of taxpayer money is being spent that the recipients could and should easily pay for themselves.

The federal government pays the fare (or a very large portion thereof) for every federal employee who participates in a van or carpool system. They get paid to save wear & tear on their personal vehicles, and ride for free, or close to it. I pay $160 a month for a 120 mile round trip five days a week; and my government coworkers who ride with me only pay $35 and the federal government pays the remainder of their fare. This 80% off fare is available to all federal employees from White House and congressional staff to sailors, airmen, General Service civilian support staff, the Army Corp of Engineers, National Labs, et. al. get to ride to work almost free on the public dime.

Granted. it was probably a good idea to investing in getting van and carpool systems established in the first place, but in my experience even paying full fare represents a big personal savings in gas, tires and miles on the truck. So, I think it's time, and I think it's fair, that federal employees pay their own full and fare just like the rest of the workaday world. It's only fair.

So Spinner, do any of your coworkers car/van pool?

Not a one that I am aware of.
I am technically a contractor, a particular kind of contractor where from the outside it is pretty much a distinction without a difference. Our wages and benefits are constantly reviewed to ensure that they are not out of line with those paid in industry. That is not standard practice, so we do not get it. It has gone both ways, cuts in benefits and increases in wages. It's a pretty reasonable process.

I believe I remember when they started paying for that stuff and it was done as an executive order to go green and meet reduction targets. Don't have time to look it up at the moment.

Obama cares and you want poor people to die, especially if they are minorities and if they are a gay minority well $hit, it's hard to believe you haven't killed them already. Come on. Everybody knows that is real truth if you were truthful and not the lying neo-fascist hate monger that you are. No matter how bad Obama is, he cares and no matter how many people die because of his incompetence, well that is not his intention like it is the Republicans.

Spinner,

First : You posted the graph that shows geeks at the centroid ( optimum ) so that is was not a personal preference or choice it was simply a comment on your graph.

Second : That is King Dork to you! Ya dweebish git! :beer: :lol3:

First, nerd was always at the centroid (I did not change or edit the graph)

Second, I never said I was a geek. I admit my social ineptitude. Admitting is the first step.

Third, the centroid does not necessarily equate to optimum anyways. It depends on the dimensions as to where the optimum is. And a nerd knows social ineptitude is not a positive attribute. That's why you will remain King Dork and not crossover to the nerdside.

It's not about him being out of the woods. I'm almost sure that if they had something on him or he really did the deed, he would be toast by now. The goal is to do as much damage by smearing him in order to ruin his chance of running for president. Keep those blinders on.
