Yes, it is odd that the Republicans have so much trouble finding wealthy donors to help it promote its help-our-weathy-donors agenda. Don't worry, the Supreme Court will make sure that democracy won't be able to raise it's ugly little head too high above the flood of cash.

This election comes down to whether you want an additional Democratic or an additional Republican vote in the House. Sorry, all of you potential nominees, but the actual individual casting that vote is virtually irrelevant. The only difference a candidate can make is to spout enough partisan propaganda to convince people too stupid to have figured out which party best represents their interests.

Some people are too dim to understand that what makes them Teaheads is precisely the nature of the "easily available information" that they post: chunks of rightwing propaganda that they seem to think is made truth by their repetition of it.

The House of Representatives has been controlled by Republicans for all but 4 of the 17 years Lois Capps has been there. Yet apparently she’s the one responsible for budget deficits, not the Republicans. Who knew she had so much power?

Too much to hope that you really would move on to one of the many Indy items on which you daily bless the world with your endless gleeful irrelevancies and misdirected comments. Raising a different set of issues changes absolutely nothing about your revealing inability to show that anything about Obama's statement as quoted by you is a lie, which makes you either ignorant or a liar. To quote Lou Reed, since I don't have to choose, I guess I won't.

Called on to show how Obama's statement is a lie, JJ can't, so he simply repeats that it is because it is, then backs away, tossing up as much additional nonsense as he can, hoping no one will notice how pointless his arguments always end up being.

Which part of that statement is a lie? A framework was indeed reached. So that isn't a lie. Obama believes it was a good deal. So unless you can show that he doesn't really believe that, then that isn't a lie either. The framework is indeed designed to cut off pathways to an Iranian nuclear weapon. So describing it in that way also isn't a lie.

The only damage here would be to your own credibility, if you had any. And if anyone had any doubt, the fact that you seem to think referring to Obama as "Barry Soetero" scores some sort of point reveals the sorry level at which you're operating.

Still waiting for the direct quote showing Obama's supposed lie.

What was the lie?

Here's how the BBC, as opposed to the ridiculously biased right-wing sheet from which some people prefer to take their ideological sustenance, presents the story:

"Ayatollah Khamenei has decided to sit on the fence, for the time being. He says he will neither endorse or reject the agreement.
A lot of details will have to be dealt with, he says, before the preliminary agreement from last week will turn into a final agreement at the end of June - the deadline the two sides have set themselves for a comprehensive solution to Iran's nuclear problem.
But by not rejecting it, he has, in effect, consented to the premise of the agreement - that Iran would limit its nuclear activities in return for the lifting of sanctions. And that is a major step for the hardliners in Iran, including the country's leader."

This seems closer to the truth than the misleadingly triumphant nonsense with which reality-challenged ideologues need constantly to soothe themselves.

People who know nothing about scientific organizations or how they work or the journals they publish do know, based on something they've seen on YouTube, which seems to be their preferred source for authority figures, that "science" is a stench, a prostitute, and a fraud. That these are among the most prestigious scientific organizations in the world just shows how widespread this conspiracy must be.

People who make such ridiculously broad and overheated charges seem to spend their days and nights seeking news items to which they can attach the results of their deep research and bring light to the world on how things really are. What they actually reveal, regardless of the great variety of subjects on which they feel competent to speak, is that they bring only one thing to any honest discussion: nothing.
