I really need to make a list of no clicky links to keep on near my computer.

I've already got Breitbart, WND and Townhall on it.  Should Washington Post be on it too?

Don't worry. I'm pretty sure Obama is going to be the next Clinton. It's amazing how the Republicans have turned attempting to impeach people they don't like in office into a  Running trend over the last 16 years.

You guys are awesome.

Here's the "no clicky" list so far:

Breitbart
WND
Townhall
Washington Post/Times/Examiner
Daily Caller
Twitchy
The Blaze

I feel like I'm missing a few major ones, but I can't think of them.

As soon as the WaPo realized is was more important to keep its connections on the Hill than it was to do, you know, journalism.

My favorite quote FTFA: "Just because Congress doesn't act doesn't mean the president has a right to act."

The first half of that quote seems to describe everything since 2010.

Yes, it is important to tune out news and people who don't share your opinion.  You wouldn't want to be struck by a logical argument that interferes with you narrow view of the world.

It's important to not support bullshiat with clicks. Not clicking on bullshiat websites and tuning out people with different opinions are two very different things. You would do well to learn the difference.

Thank you Via. It amazes me that st5upid farks continue to support these ridiculous websites even after being laid bare after the last election. I guess conservatives would rather jerk each other off than adapt to win.

Watch BillCo step into the very next DailyKOS thread to biatch and complain about echo chambers... and then point and laugh at him for getting his "news" from the sources listed above.

Logical well supported and researched arguments that differ from your own are certainly needed.  But most of the arguments from most of those sites is akin to walking into a Astrophysics symposium and boldly claiming that gravity propagates via magic bunnies....then expecting everyone to give equal more weight to your argument.

No, i actually seek out opposing viewpoints.  It reaffirms my convictions when I see some of the stupid things that liberals believe in.  Sorry to disappoint you.

Congress refuses to do it's job.  If they won't, there's no reason we should sit and slowly hurt ourselves.
 
2013-02-11 09:52:21 AM  
BillCo, it doesn't count as "seeking out opposing viewpoints" if you only do so in order to mock the users of those sites.  And yes, it is THAT obvious that you don't bother trying to learn anything new and are not accepting of facts that do not support your personal worldview.

He raised taxes on the rich so no doubt unemployment will increase.  Right?

I like clicking on those links. You should really try to understand their thinking. I don't agree with them but I'm curious none the less.

I used to be curious. But after a minute or two "being against everything the black president is for" is just ridiculous.

Add "gateway pundit" to the list

This is the inevitable result of Congressional deadlock. If you take a historical look and step back from our current fights, it's pretty simple:

1) Governments need to do stuff.
2) People in general don't care all that much how it happens.
3) People like executives more than legislatures.
4) If legislatures refuse to do stuff, the executive will end up doing it.

See Rome, Ancient.

Congress can get on the train or get in front of it.
 
2013-02-11 10:56:03 AM  
If the Republicans in the house and senate continue to remove themselves from the process, the process will increasingly ignore them.
 
2013-02-11 10:56:26 AM  
I really hate when presidents do this.

Even ignoring the gross exercise of undo power on the issue, it just ensures that if the next president disagrees it gets undone just as easily.

Oh, and Grassley? STFU. Somehow I doubt you had the same problem when Bush was doing it on issues you liked.

President Obama is considering a series of new executive actions aimed at working around a recalcitrant Congress, including policies that could allow struggling homeowners to refinance their mortgages, provide new protections for gays and lesbians, make buildings more energy-efficient and toughen regulations for coal-fired power plants, according to people outside the White House involved in discussions on the issues.

Those all sound well within his authority as President
