Jessie Watters is:

a) a dick

b) a smarmy dick

c) O'Reilly's personal boot licking toady.

That about sums it up.

Well. You weren't doing good (unless you were feeding starving kids or something), you were doing well. You need an adverb to modify the verb "do."

It is without question that Fox News is rightwing. And the entire rest of the media is in the tank for the Democrats. The fact that Fox News is dissident news drives the MSM batty. They *thought* they had total control of the media spin until Fox news showed up.

halfof33: At the $500 donor level, you were placed on certain campaign distribution lists that included information not generally disclosed to the general public, which a media organization could monitor to determine if there was anything newsworthy.

I myself have used this same tactic in local elections, and would forward the Dear Valued Doner e-mails to my guy's campaign.

Of course I did not give $500 bucks.


That's the first thing *I* read into this. $500 is NOT a serious supporting donation for a guy with income like that.

This was just a trick to exploit access to their supporter broadcast emails to see if they released anything embarrassing. I don't care, it's a fairly honest trick. I'd do it if I were in reporting.

back when I actually called myself a libertarian I was all about the broad view of the philosophy...live and let live sort of vibe. I really didn't go too deep for a while, after a year or two I had thought about it too much and wasn't too happy with the logical follow through on a lot of the ideas.

Libertarianism is like a corndog, it only seems like a good idea until you've started to digest it.

It's just another idealistic system that sounds good on paper, but doesn't take human nature into account. It's a lot like communism in that way. It assumes everyone does their best and follows the rules. A very faulty basic assumption.

Jesse Watters waited. The lights above him blinked and sparked out of the air. There were demoncrats in the White House. He didn't see them, but had expected them now for years. His warnings to the Amercian people were not listenend to and now it was too late. Far too late for now, anyway.
Jesse was a talking head for fourteen years. When he was young he watched the news and he said to dad "I want to be on the news daddy."
Dad said "No! You will BE KILL BY DEMONCRATS"
There was a time when he believed him. Then as he got oldered he stopped. But now in the studio of FOX he knew there were demonscrats.
"This is O'Reilly" the radio crackered. "You must fight the demoncrats!"
So Jesse gotted his microphone and blew up the minds.
"HE GOING TO KILL US" said the demoncrats
"I will yell at him" said the Obama and he fired the campaign missiles. John pundited at him and tried to blew him up. But then the ceiling fell and they were trapped and not able to kill.
"No! I must kill the demoncrats" he shouted
The radio said "No, Jesse. You are the demoncrats"
And then Jesse was a zombie.

I agree that it's "toe", and sympathize with the depth of your angst at the incorrect "tow". But you are incorrect regarding the origin of the phrase.

Wikipedia wouldn't lie to us:
It is commonly and erroneously thought that its origins lie in the British House of Commons where sword-strapped members were instructed to stand behind lines that were two sword-lengths apart from their political rivals in order to restore decorum. However, there is no record of a time when Members of Parliament were allowed to bring swords into the Chamber. Historically, only the Serjeant at Arms carries a sword as a symbol of his role in Parliament. There are loops of pink ribbon in the Members' cloakroom for MPs to hang up their swords before entering the Chamber to this very day as a result of this rule. In fact, there were not any lines in the Chamber in the days that gentlemen carried swords.


The original assertion here is that "toe the line" derives from the existence of free-throw lines in the House of Commons, and that members may put their toe to the line but not cross it. The wiki disproves a different assertion - that the lines are two sword lengths apart and were a preventative measure to prevent bloodshed. Disproving assertion 2 does not disprove assertion 1.

I agree, especially since both Neal Boortz and Bill Maher claim to be Libertarians adds to the confusion regarding the party's ideology. Listening to one guy you think they are derpy conservatives and when listening to the other you think they are flaming liberals.
