Well, in all fairness they do have quite a liberal bias as does Mother Jones, much like Faux News and The Hill have a rightie bias. It's hard to actually find news that is the real deal. To actually find out if something is true, I would hope that lime me, the ones that read this would at least try to find other sources to prove it or disprove it.

I know, I'm hoping too much

Rmoney is a rich spoiled moran and he is not what we want or need for America.

BTW. I didn't RTFA because they have it blocked at work, but I wll tomorrow.

James F. Campbell: Isn't doublethink a willful act? I think we're giving too much credit to conservatives, here. I don't think "doublethink" adequately describes people who are too ignorant to experience cognitive dissonance.


What was done here was willful.

The contractors certainly knew -- that had to have -- that their success depends on government largesse. They've chosen to "tell deliberate lies while genuinely believing in them, to forget any fact that has become inconvenient."

And, when the sequestration of government (and, especially defense-related) spending draws nearer, I feel confident in predicting that they will "draw [the formerly inconvenient fact of their reliance on government spending] back from oblivion for just as long as it is needed."

Kittypie070: Wow, Brubold, that was ridiculous even for you.

Taxpayer money doesn't come from taxpayers?


How on earth did you get that from what I wrote? I pointed out that small business owners generate more tax money than anyone else. Which means they are responsible for a larger percentage of the money that's used to pay for all these government roads and programs that Obama claaaaaaiiiiiiiiims actually are responsible for building their businesses.


I just figgered out my damn sarcasm meter is broken, [duhh], I need to go scream at those crazed bastards at JPL to get it readjusted AGAIN while they're as busy as one-legged Rockettes in an Icecapades ass-kicking contest, and YOU are still a f*ckwit.

James F. Campbell: Brubold: a small business owner

Hypothetically speaking, how much tax income would a small business owner generate if "typical Americans who work for someone else" suddenly lost their jobs and had no money to buy things from him?

Does the small business owner conjure demons to provide him with gold? Is the small business owner operating a money tree orchard? Does the small business owner live in a vacuum with a portal to the Elemental Plane of American Dollars? No. No, you ignoramus, no. A thousand times no. If every grain of sand in every beach by every ocean in the entire world was the word "No," it still would not reflect how wrong you are.


If you think you generate the same amount of tax money as someone running their own company you're an idiot.

Brubold: Government contractors and a government loan? It's a good thing that the money for those things pours out of the pot of money found at the end of the rainbow emanating from Obama's butt crack and isn't provided by taxpayers like the small business owners Obama says didn't build their businesses. Because it would be extremely silly to say small business owners didn't build their businesses based on help they got from taxpayer funded entities that the small business owners help more than just about anyone else because of the tax revenue they generate for the state and federal governments. As a matter of fact, it would be down right asinine to make that sort of statement.

Just saying.


So you're saying that small business owners and the government share in a relationship of reciprocity, in which businesses pay taxes which enable government to provide services, which in turn afford small businesses the safe and stable environment necessary to sell their goods and services? Is that what you're saying?

brianbankerus: HOW IS THIS CLOWN STILL POLLING CLOSE TO EVEN???

The media fixes the polls to make it look like a close race when it's nothing of the kind, because close races sell more ad space at higher prices.

This is not new, remember how the Obama/McCain election was totally too close to call right up until the actual electoral votes were in, and how stupid that seemed to anyone that hadn't been completely asleep through the entire campaign?

Basically, don't worry too much about the specifics of the polls, they're a complete flight of fancy. Beyond the general fact that Obama's ahead, I guess.

//If your memory of 2008 is fuzzy, it went 365 to 173 in favor of Obama and this surprised absolutely no one but the pundits. Mostly thanks to Mrs. Palin.

eraser8: James F. Campbell: What word or phrase should replace "cognitive dissonance" in the headline, then?

Something I mentioned in my post: Doublethink.

Doublethink "describes the act of simultaneously accepting two mutually contradictory beliefs as correct, often in distinct social contexts. Its opposite is cognitive dissonance, where the two beliefs cause conflict in one's mind."

From George Orwell's 1984, doublethink is described as: The power of holding two contradictory beliefs in one's mind simultaneously, and accepting both of them... To tell deliberate lies while genuinely believing in them, to forget any fact that has become inconvenient, and then, when it becomes necessary again, to draw it back from oblivion for just as long as it is needed, to deny the existence of objective reality and all the while to take account of the reality which one denies - all this is indispensably necessary. Even in using the word doublethink it is necessary to exercise doublethink. For by using the word one admits that one is tampering with reality; by a fresh act of doublethink one erases this knowledge; and so on indefinitely, with the lie always one leap ahead of the truth


It's not doublethink either.

Do you think Romney is not aware of what the context of Obama's quote was?

That he's not aware of the fact that he's lying?

There may be some doublethink going on among the GOP LCD mouth breathing base but at the top it's just some cynical political operatives telling lies.

I ran a small business for years, and have several friends who do the same.

Vacations? Just find a conference in a tourist area, and it's a tax-free business expense.

Toys? You can stretch your business resources into anything you desire. It takes a lot for the IRS to say, "Hey, that's not *really* a business item. That hot, beefed up gaming computer can do graphics work, you know? And the X-box in the office is for kids in the waiting room. Meals, parties, new cars -- things we all like to use and have in everyday life -- can be tax-free if you do it right.

You just get the business that compliments your hobby or lifestyle, and your fun is a lifetime write-off. In fact, shiatloads of small businesses have no employees, other than an owner-operator, for just that reason.

The whole goal of a small business is to pay yourself a small salary, spend all the money on your toys, cars, and vacations (after operations costs, of course), and make no profit for the business itself. If you're doing it right, employees are paying for themselves, tangibly, so employment taxes are planned for and no big deal.

OSHA inspected the factories where that lemonade mix was made, the mix itself had to meet FDA safety requirements, the truckers used the interstates to haul it to the little girl's grocery stores, and her mom likely bought it at the store (little kids usually don't have their own start up capital.)

Yes, she had no help at all.

She was helped only by private enterprise in all of those examples, except for the FDA putting their fingers in the food. I think it's been made patently obvious over the past few years that this Obama FDA has been making none-too-subtle gestures that once their boss gets re-elected, they'll finalize their decades-old push to force us to subsist on diets composed entirely of arugula, wheat bread and pint milk. The First Lady is obviously the ringleader in this corruption of our nutritional liberty. It's already started in New York with the soda, man, open your eyes.

There's a local small businessman here in Raleigh who puts his opinion on political issues on his business sign in front of the shop (It's Snoopy's Hot Dogs for those who wonder). After Obama's comment that small businessmen didn't succeed on their own, he put up a retort saying "Yes I did Obama". I so want to go there and ask him if he paid for the roads, utilities, all his education, all his family's medical bills, etc, etc, without anyone else assisting him.

/wouldn't expect him to understand the question though

Pocket Ninja: Subby, do you know anything about Federal contracting? "Federal contracting" is basically shorthand for "privately owned companies liberating tax dollars from the Federal government." See, the Federal Government uses fear and intimidation to collect taxes from its citizens. Then it uses that money to grow itself. Citizens can't tax the government to get money back, so what they do is form companies, called "contractors" who basically set up all kinds of programs designed to return all that seized tax money to the private realm. So, for example, when Boeing "wins" a $500 million contract from "the government," what they've really done is liberate $500 million in taxpayer funds to redistribute to the taxpayers. Like Robin Hood, in a way. The more federal contractors there are, the more money we can liberate from the beast that seeks to dominate us all -- aka, the federal government.


I know that this is satire, but I think that there are many people who think this way. I work for a state government that is continually criticized for over paid state workers during a time of unprecedented reduction in staffing levels, and at the same time the huge amount of contractors and consultants are given a complete pass, even though the costs of contractors (generally higher pay and a big cut that goes to their companies) are much more than an equivalent state worker and often times contracts will last for years if not decades.

I guess the fact that money that I have saved over the years that is right this second paying for a private company to remodel my kitchen does not count. Money goes to me and just vanishes without ever having an impact on the economy or creating jobs.

Pincy: Don't get me wrong, I don't want Romney within 10 miles of the White House, but if for some reason he were elected, it would be hilarious if the first thing he said at his inaugural speech is "I didn't need anyone, I got here all by myself".


Romney should be challenged to fire all his advisors, to prove he can do it on his own.

Bigdogdaddy: coeyagi: 25 posts in and no ConservaTroll to complain about how this should be dismissed because it's a Kos article? I am disappoint.

Well, in all fairness they do have quite a liberal bias as does Mother Jones, much like Faux News and The Hill have a rightie bias. It's hard to actually find news that is the real deal. To actually find out if something is true, I would hope that lime me, the ones that read this would at least try to find other sources to prove it or disprove it.

I know, I'm hoping too much

Rmoney is a rich spoiled moran and he is not what we want or need for America.

BTW. I didn't RTFA because they have it blocked at work, but I wll tomorrow.


Liberal bias does not mean they necessarily pull bullshiat out of thin air like Fox News. Ok, Kos does sometimes. You know why? Because random bloggers blog on there. They aren't "journalists". Fox News has "News" in its title, but most of their "News" is News to me because so much of their shiat can be debunked with some simple fact checking.

But go ahead, tell us how Joe Paterno is like Hitler and how Xmen: The Last Stand was as bad Godfather Part III. If you're going to false equivalency shiat on this thread, go full bore.
