Original message How come Republicans can just make crap up and people believe it?
Whether it’s Fox “News,” Limbaugh, wingnut members of the house or senate – whatever they say becomes instant “TRUTH.”
Why can they spout any piece of pig crap that enters their heads and have people believe them with no facts, proof, or backup any kind?
If a Democrat tried that, he or she would be ridiculed, made to look like a fool, and then run out of town. This can happen even if a Democrat is actually telling the truth.
(Oh...you mean like Mr. Cold Cash from LA??? Moron. You Dumbfucks were sticking up for this prick till he got convicted and I'm sure there are still a collection of you idiots who think he was framed by lord Rove. )
So why the double standard?
(And if the answer is “the corporate-owned media,” then we might as well pack it in and admit that our country no longer exists.)
So what’s your answer?May the FORCE be with you!

I noticed that he didn't cite any actual examples.“Progress is Providence without God. That is, it is a theory that everything has always
perpetually gone right by accident. It is a sort of atheistic optimism, based on an
everlasting coincidence far more miraculous than a miracle.”

Do not ever say that the desire to "do good" by force is a good motive. Neither power-lust nor stupidity are good motives. (Are you listening Barry)?:mad:

Is he talking about Haditha????
Or perhaps the "news" that Sarah Palins baby was actually her daughters??
Maybe the "fact" that the Austin pilot was a tea party-er????

17. Perhaps, but some awfully weird stuff comes out the mouths of
Michelle Bachmann and Sarah Palin.
I don't know what type of alien beings they're talking to, but no one ever imagined the snake oil they're selling, no less wanting to hear it. (e.g. "I can see Russia from my porch.")
Nonetheless, you've really got to wonder how many people really believe she can "see Russian from her porch?"
Sara Palin did not say that. She said that from some places in Alaska you can see Russia. WHICH IS TRUE.
It was Tina Fey on SNL that said that she could see Russia from her front porch...or house or whatever.
