The object of paraphrasing is not to change the meaning of the sentence, which you did. You act just like Rush by adding, subtracting, and changing the intent of the actual item to suit your needs. Not good. But you are a winger in training.

"At least he won't get elected."

Let's wait and see, centerish.

After this certain Senator kept interrupting her answers about the Benghazi deaths, Clinton's comment included the following: "With all due respect, the fact is we had four dead Americans. Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided that they’d they go kill some Americans? What difference at this point does it make? It is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, Senator." Now that is factual, mini.

Well, as they say, even a blind squirrel will find an acorn. But, part of the release stated that at this time they have found no legal wrong doing but are continuing the investigation. The whole foreign national program EB5 should be done away with. But that is for later. If the guy is found to have violated some laws, then can his butt. Loved your support for Vitter. Great explaination....Now, if you had gotten that Hillary thing factual.

Gee, mini, at least he won't get elected. Kinda different from the Republicans like Vitter and Sanford. At least he won't get elected. that says something for your party.

Agreed, DustOff.

North Dakota's booming economy is full of all kinds of people taking advantage of a plethora of opportunities for work.

Here's a un-socially engineered result: those "all kinds of people" working here? Many are choosing to settle here, either for a while or long-term.

A much better result than by force...

DustOff, thanks for pointing out one of those regrettable flaws sometimes found in "enlightened" liberal men. I know of others, but I digress.

Most, admittedly not all, but most of the conservative men I know are decent, hard-working fellows with lots of common sense, trying to do their best for their wives and families.

And to be fair, there are probably lots of decent, hard-working liberal men out there, trying to do their best as well.

But if there's one thing that irks me, it's a double standard. For Democrats to imply that they are the only party looking out for women is just so much disingenuous claptrap, if we go by examples of their "always" treating women well.

"Well, loco, we certainly won't hold those choices against you..."

Your new name should be "centerishdoesntgetit" because those Democrat women already have held my choices against me. In spades.

"You must be happy with your subservient role in the Republican male world."

Spoken like a true hyperpartisan liberal Democrat, centerish. You really have no idea, but you just keep slinging the hash. For you, it'll never get old.

Well, loco, we certainly won't hold those choices against you, except your blind support of the Republican agenda against women. You support the Republican opposition(and votes) against equal pay for women? You want these old white men to decide what type of medical services you, your daughters, granddaughters, and all other young women have to have for a pregnancy? You support women as second class citizens like the Republican men want? Give me a break. My children and grandchildren deserve more. You must be happy with your subservient role in the Republican male world.

"Your party attacks women, minorities, middle and low income Americans."

If you're thinking that "my party" is the Republican party, I'd have to say that as low-to-middle class incomed woman, I haven't yet been "attacked" by Republicans.

On the other hand, some choices that I've made for my life have been largely ridiculed and scoffed at by Democrats. Interestingly, most of them were women.

"But, your post did not explain that and getting to the source of your statement was not what people were going to do. Your intent was to color the situation."

Prove that last statement, centerish.

Well, I did think that I was blogging with adults, those that might not believe everything they read, like me.

So I should explain everything I post for everybody? I don't think so.

centerish is the best example of why not: because hard-core liberal partisans will never try to understand. Why should they? They have their truth, and their posts continue to illustrate that fact quite well.

But don't worry, centerish. You have lots of friends on here. Veritas seems particularly chummy.

The hooples are using Trayvon Martin's death as an excuse to project their own deep-seated issues with racism.

The truth, the truth, you would not know the truth if it hit you in the face. There use to be a lot of good republicans in the Congress but they have been run off or passed on. The rest of the good ones are so afraid of the radical right wing that they hide all the time. Your party attacks women, minorities, middle and low income Americans. That certainly is different from the previous Republicans. Everyone has some conservative views and some liberal views in their life. The difference is that the modern republican hypocritically denies any thing that is liberal even though they will eagerly accept liberal things that are to their advantage.

But, your post did not explain that and getting to the source of your statement was not what people were going to do. Your intent was to color the situation. Your post was irrelevant to the martin situation but you used it just like Rush and the boys would. You're a good conservative, right wing blogger.

"People like dusty, billdoesnt, and loco , among others, will ruin the good parts of the party and drag it down."

Tell the truth, centerish. You don't think there are any "good parts" of the Republican party. Your posts have proven it over and again.

And please, try to look at things without your hyperpartisan glasses on for once. I posted the blog source because it gave more complete info on the Jacksonville double homicide that was alluded to. For instance, it told that the two guys were murdered because somebody was after their drug stash. That was info not available on some other, what you would term right-wing, sites.

I'm interested in truth. If you were as centerish as your moniker implies, you'd already know that.

Keep slinging that hash of yours. To you, it ain't old yet.

Good post, billlwillnevereverevergetit. Your comments have no factual basis and as usual are off the wall and erroneous. But your hatred and arrogance always comes through. You never challenge what is presented by liberals because it is factual and you don't care about the facts. You would be hilarious in a study group or better yet a debate. It does seem that when dusty takes a break, you show up in full force with outlandish comments and extremely biased opinions. Without a doubt, intelligence and common sense have never been a part of your personal behavior. Of the last ten presidents, no one has been worse than Bush II and the Republican stable of candidates house Nixon and Reagan as well. The best of the lot has been Bush I. With nothing to defend, no wonder you act the fool.

Oh, and to you misinformation loco, you posted a lie with the thought of making a double murder a part of the overtones of the Martin verdict, which is was not. You did not print a retraction to that attempt to color the entire conversation. You learn well from Rush, Shawn, and fox news.

Presidential elections? Guess how many the Republicans have gotten the majority of the votes of the people in the past , oh say five or six elections. Republicans are in the minority. They win states by gerrymandering districts like they did in Texas and other states. The Republican philosophy (take care of the rich and the heck with women, minorities, and blue collar people) will continue to decimate the party. Just like in Montana, the Republican party splits between the crazies of the party and the moderates. If nothing else, the philosophy of the party certain is a minority philosophy. The Party will go down in history as one of the worst in the history of the US. Letting the party be run by radical far right wingers will erode any hope of the party growing. The crazies will bust the party of Reagan in pieces. People like dusty, billdoesnt, and loco , among others, will ruin the good parts of the party and drag it down.

Sounds like plenty of "perdickshuns" about the Republican party from, who else, the angry diehard Democrat liberal progressives, of which the current President and the majority of Senate are members.

So the Democrats will be running on their record when it comes to next year's elections? Really? Only if the usual scapegoat of the past 5 years isn't available, I suppose. President Bush has been invaluable, hasn't he?

Keep standing your ground, Democrats.

centerish, it's plain that you didn't check out the blog source I listed, or you wouldn't be still slinging your same ol' hash. But if one's happy with leftovers....

doesn't ever get it, really doesn't get it. REfute my comments but you cannot. they are true. Not only is the REpublican party in the minority and getting smaller, the only way they can win an election is to gerrymander the voting districts and suppress the vote. Losers all, especially neverevergetsit.

Billwillnevereverevergetit, your party's legacy of 420 senate filibusters, 39 attempts to repeal obamacare, obstruction at every corner, visual/verbal hatred and racism abounding, destruction of women's rights, voter obstruction, gerrymandering of voting districts and many other anti-US policies leaves you with the only way to justify the destruction. You must attack, lie, fabricate, and regurgitate trash. Your party is lost and so are you. Belly crawlers would be a complement to the REpublican party members.

Gosh, loco, I went and visited your site but then I checked it out further, which you did not do. You should know better than to listen the miss information on your winger blogs. The Jacksonville paper has the picture of the four assailants and the full story on the drug related killing. Only your nut case web sites tried to tie it in without follow up. Your right wing sites push fear, hatred, and miss information. Sadly, you and the other wingers buy into it. You entry added nothing but miss leading statements.

centerish: "Way to jump in there, loco, and back up the Jacksonville lies."

Uh, the blog I c/p'd is one that provided more info on Jacksonville than any other I'd seen. It is only your opinion that this blog is right-wing, but you just keep on slinging your hash, warmed over and less than nice, as per your style.
