Remember my "Republicans are Scum" post?

Well, MediaMatters did an excellent write up to Sean Hannity's continued Islamophobic attacks on Congressmen Keith Ellison, and Ellison's response that Hannity should be ashamed at being so immoral by saying so may things on the air that aren't true. Haniity, for his part, just amped up his attacks, but here's a list of 10 Examples of Sean Hannity saying things that aren't true.

If you don't want to read the whole post, here's the short list. If you [Conservatives] doubt any of these, don't bother arguing them here unless you first check out the citations and background evidence that MMFA presents. I grow weary of replying to such arguments with "read the fucking article."


10. Hannity Hyped RNC's Doctored Audio Of Supreme Court Arguments. [Media Matters, 3/30/12]

9. Hannity Distorted CBO Data To Attack Obama. [Media Matters, 2/2/12]

8. Hannity Falsely Claimed A White House Adviser "Advocated Compulsory Abortion." [Media Matters, 9/9/09]

7. Hannity Falsely Claimed Obama Called The Death Of Four Americans "Just A Bump In The Road."  [Media Matters, 9/25/12]

6. Hannity Spread False Report That Egypt Was Considering Necrophilia Bill.  [Media Matters, 4/30/12; Huffington Post, 4/26/12]

5. Hannity's Special On "Liberal Bias" Featured Wildly Distorted And Out-Of-Context Quotes.  [Media Matters, 4/24/11]

4. Hannity Cast Doubt On Scientific Consensus About Climate Change. [Media Matters, 12/4/09, 1/13/10, 8/27/10, 11/19/10, 6/24/11]

3. Hannity Fueled Myth That Obama Is A Muslim.  [Media Matters, 3/24/11, 3/21/12]

2. Hannity Fed The Birther Movement. [Media Matters, 3/28/11, 4/20/12]

1. Hannity Ignored Overwhelming Evidence To Repeatedly Claim Obama's Policies Have Not Helped Improve The Economy. [Media Matters, 1/13/10, 7/14/11, 2/2/12]


And remember... This is a man who's paid approximately $20,000,000 per year - enough to hire over 500 School Teacher, about 230 Engineers, or 80 Medical Doctors.

And as interesting as I'm sure it will be to see some anonymous Conservative poster try to debunk ANY of these as not being actual false hoods, I defy that same poster, or indeed any Conservative to give me a similar list for say, Rachael Maddow, or Keith Olberman, or Ed Shultz, or Chris O'Donnell, or MMFA for that matter!

(Remember when William tried that? He posted one example of MMFA ADMITTING they got something wrong, one example that was clearly a true statement, and one that was said (by some RW website) to contain misinformation, which turned out to be taken verbatim from the subject's own tax returns!)

I'm sure any Conservative could come up with a list of 10 examples of things that were said by one of these people that were LIBERAL, but I'll vote a strait Republican ticket in the 2014 mid-terms if they can come up with a list of 10 examples of things that were said by one of these people that were actually FALSE. Lots of luck!

    One on of the recent threads at MMfA I had a similar argument with someone who claimed that the idiotic bellyaching about Michelle Obama's appearance at the Oscars was just part of the game, both sides have their views, etc. I promptly called "false equivalence" on it, subsequently explaining (in part) that there's no parallel to Limbaugh, Savage, et al (don't think I specified Hannity, oddly). Of course, the reaction is to the effect of "I could bring examples..." but when pressed, they don't. Of course there are some instances that a conservative can point to, but they simply don't come close in amount or degree to what people like Hannity do.

    It goes well beyond any problem of accuracy into the realm of integrity. If someone makes a mistake, fine. Even if they don't correct it (which, of course, they should), it doesn't mean it was an intentional lie. With people like Hannity, there's no way to give anyone the benefit of the doubt. There's simply too much, to an extreme degree, and all towards a common goal of demonizing the opposition in the most blatant ways possible.

    There's simply nobody like that on the left, as far as I've ever seen.

    1. More than anything else, back in the early days, it was what brought me around to accpeting the Liberal Positions and Argument:

      Liberals bring evidence to proove that you're wrong.

      Conservtaives bring evidence to proove that you're Liberal.

      And no, you're aboslutely right, there's no equivalency at all.

      When they stop telling lies about us, we'll stop telling the truth about them!

    2. Isn't Olberman a tax evader? I thought I remember him being in the news around 2008 (or so) for not paying his fair share of the national debt. Now he is one of your top heroes.
      Didn't David Chalian get in trouble, during the republican convention, for making racist statements? Now, isn't he vice president at Politico? Wow, they sure got the right man for thier organization.
      Didn't Dan Rather forge documents just to cause Bush to lose an election? Wasn't he forced out of his job because of that bit of dishonesty?
      Sorry, barbantio, you wanted 4 examples but I only brought 3. Gosh, that will mean you can claim there are only 3 crooks among those godly liberals pundits.
      I'll bet that happens within 3 or 4 sentences of any reply given this statement.

    3. Where did I ask for four examples? Where did I say Olbermann was one of my heroes? I didn't even know you were talking to me until you intentionally mispelled my name again.

      But if you are talking to me, let me repeat:"Of course there are some instances that a conservative can point to, but they simply don't come close in amount or degree to what people like Hannity do."

      So, thanks for proving my point.

    4. You know, this is an interesting subject. The left always whines about the right. And, of course, vice-a-versa. You can access (on the internet) any number of left wing pundits who fail and right wing pundits who fail. Is there really any purpose to that?

      Delete
    5. I don't usually see people make arguments that I've explicitly addressed.

      You can't cite the same amount of people who "fail" on the left as on the right. Especially since the degree of inaccuracy doesn't allow a reasonable person to believe that it's unintentional. Are we supposed to believe Hannity or Limbaugh just make that many innocent mistakes that all happen to support their rabid ideologies?

      You're also implying that internet sources are equally valid. Newsbusters, for instance, claims that anything in the media that doesn't support conservative causes is evidence of "bias" against conservatives. I'm really not exaggerating. So, their citation of what they classify as "left-wing" (including Matthews, who was cited in your link below) is not necessarily accurate. Obviously, if conservatives have to lie in order to propel their agenda, then certain websites have to follow suit in order to help the cause.

      You're just pushing more of the same false equivalence.

  2. This is a good site that shows the dangers of listening to and paying attention to liberal pundits: http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2013/02/rough-week-for-liberals-three-deranged-far-left-killers-make-the-news/

    Sorry, I realize this isn't the subject, but you did ask for examples of the dangers of liberal pundits, right? Well, there you have a couple that show liberal pundits tell people to kill just like right-wing pundits do. So, now you've gotten 6 examples. Just 4 more and you vow to vote republican.

    3. Anon,

      Were you born this stupid, or did you have to work at it?

      So... A couple of "liberal" guys do some bad stuff. So fucking what?! You want me to bury you with examples of that sort of thing coming not only from teh Right, but from peolpe who ACTUALLY MATTER and are EMPLOYED by the Republican Party?

      Go here: http://armchairsubversive.blogspot.com

      Or here: http://www.republicanoffenders.com

      I gave 10 example of a SINGLE Conservtaive Broadcaster (just one of MANY) ACTIVELY LYING TO THE PUBLIC. You're still at -ZERO- examples of a Liberal doing the same. (I would be generous to concede even Dan Rather, and that story has far more to it that the RW suggests, and, no, the documents weren't "forged." That's a lie.)

      And where do you get the idea that Politico is some LIBERAL outfit? Do you see them in MY Hall of Fame? MMFA goes after them ALL THE TIME. You lot just see them as Liberal because what they do resembles journalism slightly more that than the crap they put out over at, well, Gateway Pundit, for example. Something isn't "Liberal" just because so hard-right propaganda mill SAYS it is, because they occasionally disagree.

      BTW... You don't listen to Limbaugh, but you read crap like the Gateway Pundit? Dude: It's all the same RW crap! A quick look over their headlines and "intellectually dishonest" is about the BEST thing I can say about them. You people wouldn't know a reliable source of information if it slandered you!

      You still have yet to show me a single example of what I asked for: A LIBERAL PUNDIT DECIEVING THE PUBLIC BY BROADCATSING A DEMONSTRABLE FALSEHOOD. (Or, if I'm feeling generous, I'll give you 1.)

      Olbermann evaded taxes? OK, whatever. So did Romney. I don't care. Show me when Olbermann LIED TO THE PUBLC ON THE AIR and it would be relevant.

    4. False equivalence. They can say the same thing, without merit. Your goal was to make a dishonest argument, in order to demonstrate that conservatives claim liberals make a dishonest argument against them? Bizarre, to say the least.

      And what does this have to do with Hannity, by the way? Even if your argument was valid, what does it change regarding a serial liar who gets support from conservative media?

      Delete
    5. Eddie, your article is full of ONE person doing bad stuff. I guess I was born dumb because I don't see a difference between bad lefties and bad righties. Do you?

      "You still have yet to show me a single example of what I asked for: A LIBERAL PUNDIT DECIEVING THE PUBLIC BY BROADCATSING A DEMONSTRABLE FALSEHOOD." .. Yes, I did. The Dan Rather reference takes care of that. Oh you mean 'current' ones. Well, I made your excuse for you. You're welcome.

      Delete
    6. Rather doesn't cut it. He lost his job for unprofessional reporting (note Hannity is still employed), but the content of the memos was substantiated. He was conned, not a forger.

      Delete
    7. Rather is a good example of left wing pundits LYING to promote their ideals. Eddie asked for one example and I provided it. Losing a job or still having a job was NOT one of the parameters for acceptability. He deceived the public and it changed the way an American Presidential election progressed. He was the worst of the worst. He used his position of public trust to further his hatred of a political party.

      Delete
    8. Except that, as I said, the memos were substantiated. The information was accurate, the problem was that he didn't properly verify the memos themselves. He was conned, which anyone familiar with the story is aware of. It quite conveniently helped Bush, who was under fire for his laughable military record.

      The point about getting fired doesn't have to do so much with the parameters as it does with the general difference between the two sides. If Rather was a serial offender, then why would he have lasted as long as he did? Meanwhile, honesty is no requirement - at all - for people like Hannity. It's a disqualifier, if anything.

      Rather was wrong, but it's a stretch to attribute it to hatred of Republicans. Being over-aggressive in chasing and promoting a story is more like it.

      Delete
    9. "If Rather was a serial offender, then why would he have lasted as long as he did?" ... for the same reason limbaugh has lasted so long. Like minds think alike. Is that why you are defending Rather? Because you think lying is ok as long as it promotes your party? He LIED to the American public and those LIES changed the course of the US Government. He should have been jailed not just fired. He was a life-long crook and liar. You don't just become a liar on a whim. And you are defending him as being "over-aggresive"

    10. "BTW... You don't listen to Limbaugh, but you read crap like the Gateway Pundit?" ... Where do you get that from, eddie? You aren't going to say that linking an article means I am a life-long subsriber, are you? I thought only brabantio acted that way. Perhaps you are him? I've noticed he's changed age and occupation over the past year. Maybe you just use that name so no one else sees the stupidity being brought by him and now you.

      Delete
    11. "I've noticed he's changed age and occupation over the past year."

      Oh, this should be hilarious. You have substantiation for that, I presume?

      Delete
    12. "... for the same reason limbaugh has lasted so long. Like minds think alike."

      That makes no sense. Rather was an anchor. Limbaugh is on conservative radio. There isn't any self-perpetuating liberal bubble similar to what the right does, and there never has been.

      "Is that why you are defending Rather?"

      There used to be a claim that Dan Quayle made a comment about Latin America regarding his regret that he didn't learn Latin in high school. He never said it. I defend Quayle from that lie the same way I defend Rather from the claim that he's a forger.

      "He LIED to the American public and those LIES changed the course of the US Government."

      Bush was elected. What's the supposed change?

      "He was a life-long crook and liar. You don't just become a liar on a whim. And you are defending him as being "over-aggresive""

      That's logically bankrupt. Current behavior doesn't prove past behavior. You're still not addressing the facts of the case. It was admitted that he was lied to during the course of his gathering of the story. He was conned. Do you actually know anything about it, or are you just parroting people who falsely claimed he was a forger?

    13. You mean "I" am required to substantiate claims I make? Why am I required and you are not? Are you saying that I cannot lie and mislead (without explanation) like you do?

    15. You left that one reply for two posts, and I thought you were referring to the second one. Apparently you have nothing more to say about Rather.

      Yes, if you claim that I've changed age (people do have birthdays, so I have to assume you mean an impossible shift in age) and occupation over the last year, then you should back that up. That's not a hypothetical, that's something you're saying is verifiable. Does the difference need to be explained to you? Or are you just making a general baseless assertion? You've never...I repeat, never proven a lie on my part. You say it often, but you've never substantiated that.

      So, is that all that was, just a childish attempt at false equivalence? You claim that I lie, so you're going to make up random falsehoods whenever you feel like it? I would think that if you really believed that, you would strive to do better, to show how you have better values and morals instead of lowering yourself to what you seem to think is the abyss of liberalism.

      But, maybe you just don't have that level of maturity. And maybe you don't really believe I'm lying. Thoughts?

    16. "That's not a hypothetical, that's something you're saying is verifiable." ... What you're crying about is not "hypothetical" either. You claim there WILL be an expense. Provide how much that expense is. You claim there WILL be clogged court systems. Provide the proof that will happen.
      When you do that, you will get the info you ask for.

      "You claim that I lie, so you're going to make up random falsehoods whenever you feel like it?" ... Why not? You do it with (apparently) complete support of all the other democrats who post here. What makes you think I can't lie about facts whenever I want ... just like YOU DO.

      Delete
    17. "... What you're crying about is not "hypothetical" either. You claim there WILL be an expense."

      Future tense, or predictions, relies on hypothetical arguments. It hasn't happened yet, so it's conjectural. You're claiming something that's already happened, which is directly verifiable.

      "Provide how much that expense is."

      It would depend on the benefits claimed and the people claiming them. You're not explaining how that's supposed to be quantified.

      "You claim there WILL be clogged court systems. Provide the proof that will happen."

      Still no such thing as "proof" of a hypothetical, no matter how many times you make the irrational demand.

      "Why not? You do it with (apparently) complete support of all the other democrats who post here. What makes you think I can't lie about facts whenever I want ... just like YOU DO."

      What "facts" have I lied about? I said from the start that concerns about polygamy are hypothetical, so they're opinion. There's no alternative. There are no facts either way, so there was never anything for me to lie about. Again, you love to say that I lie, but you can never substantiate it. Ever. Not one goddamn time. Prove me wrong, if you can.

      Besides that, I thought you followed the Bible. It says in there you're not supposed to lie, in case you never read it (like I have). So, if you really want to argue that it's fine for you to break a commandment because you claim that I do, then you're proving that your morals shift based on circumstances.

      Is that really where you want to go, since you're so proud of your supposedly consistent morals? Think carefully.

      Delete
    18. "Future tense, or predictions, relies on hypothetical arguments." ... You haven't claimed hypothetical continually. You have continued to say these things WILL happen based on your bigoted stance on polygamy.

      "It would depend on the benefits claimed and the people claiming them. You're not explaining how that's supposed to be quantified." ... Do I have to explain everything to you? Really?? Give me the 'high' cost and the 'low' cost. Let's find out how accurate you are with your bigoted fears of an alternative lifestyle.

      "Still no such thing as "proof" of a hypothetical, no matter how many times you make the irrational demand." ... Perhaps you shouldn't have made such an irrational claim. There is NO proof it will happen and NO proof it will not happen. It is ALL in your bigoted fear of an alternative lifestyle.

      "Besides that, I thought you followed the Bible." ... Yes, I do follow the Bible. Changing the subject again? I know it says you should not lie. However, YOU do NOT follow the Bible, so you lie as often as you want. But, that's mainly from being a democrat.
      You see, the problem (abuse) is that I HAVE shown you to be a liar. Several times.

      Now, back to Dan Rather. How can you say his dishonesty doesn't count? He did exactly what Eddie is whining about republicans doing. And HIS actions changed the course of American History. At what point has ANYONE cared what Hannity or Limbaugh say? Have THEY changed the course of American History with their lies? Dan Rather did ... and you defend him? Really?

      Delete
    19. "Except that, as I said, the memos were substantiated." ... They were FORGED. It has been proven over and over. Are you bringing more lies again? Perhaps you can prove your statement THIS TIME? I'd like to see you try to prove that Rather didn't provide forged documents. And that aint any "hypothetical" either.

      Delete
    20. "... You haven't claimed hypothetical continually. You have continued to say these things WILL happen based on your bigoted stance on polygamy."

      "Things WILL happen" is a hypothetical. Because it's not actually verifiable, since polygamy is still illegal.

      "... Do I have to explain everything to you? Really?? Give me the 'high' cost and the 'low' cost."

      For who? All government employees? You can't even explain the relevance, so your attempt to waste my time is transparent. If you explain what difference it makes, and what exactly you're looking for, then we can move forward.

      "... Perhaps you shouldn't have made such an irrational claim. There is NO proof it will happen and NO proof it will not happen."

      I was hoping you would say something like that. Remember, you brought up the subject of polygamy. Did you not know it was illegal? Did you not comprehend that any discussion of legalization would automatically involve a hypothetical situation? If you didn't want to talk about something that couldn't be proven either way, then you should have thought about that before you brought this up.

      "Changing the subject again? I know it says you should not lie. However, YOU do NOT follow the Bible, so you lie as often as you want."

      Of course, "changing the subject", meaning anything that's inconvenient to you. You have barometer morals, by your own admission. So much for your claims of consistency. Unless you can point to the footnote in the Bible that says "unless someone else bears false witness", you're done.

      "You see, the problem (abuse) is that I HAVE shown you to be a liar. Several times."

      Point one:"problem" and "abuse" don't mean the same thing in every context. Point two:you've never demonstrated a lie on my part. Note you assert it, again, with no evidence.

      "How can you say his dishonesty doesn't count? He did exactly what Eddie is whining about republicans doing."

      It's a weak example because there are several other players involved, who bear responsibility as well. If you're familiar with the story, you know this.

      "And HIS actions changed the course of American History."

      This still makes no sense. If anything, it helped Bush.

      "At what point has ANYONE cared what Hannity or Limbaugh say?"

      You don't care. So what? Are you going to tell me that people with that broad an audience don't have an impact on the national discourse? Give me a break.

      "Dan Rather did ... and you defend him? Really?"

      I said he acted professionally. Attributing it to vindictive partisanship is harder to establish. That's not really much of a defense as much as it is a distinction, since what he did was still wrong.

      "... They were FORGED. It has been proven over and over."

      Actually, I'm not sure even that's fully established, since there were machines that could have printed that font at the time. It's also more difficult to determine since copies were analyzed and the originals destroyed. But the point I'm making is that the content was genuine, which is what really makes the entire story suspect. Why would the legitimate content be forged onto new paperwork? It makes no sense at all. If Rather had access to that information, then a relay of that information is still a story. He wouldn't need it on paper, so what's the point? It's a completely unnecessary risk. Then the source of the memos admitted that he lied about the documents. Like Eddie said, there's more to it than the right wing likes to claim.

      "I'd like to see you try to prove that Rather didn't provide forged documents."

      Compare to:"Didn't Dan Rather forge documents just to cause Bush to lose an election?" Can you spot the difference? I can.

      "Actually, I'm not sure even that's fully established, " ... Of course not, you're a sheeple.

      No. Explain the relevance, and then we'll move forward. I'm not obligated to obey nonsensical commands from you.

      "... Yes, I know it's illegal."

      Then you must have known that the discussion was hypothetical. So why did you bring it up, then act shocked that there weren't facts laying about the place?

      "So is gay marriage. What part of 'gay marriage CURRENTLY cloggs the court system' while you fear a miniscule amount of polygamists may cost your your retirement do you NOT understand?!?"

      You never proved any such problem with gay marriage, nor did you address the point that legalizing it would end any court action, as opposed to the onset of such action with the legalization of polygamy. I can restate this point over and over, if you feel the need to keep dodging it.

      "... Of course not, you're a sheeple."

      An adult could actually try to contest the point.

      "... What? Are you denying that was his motivation?"

      Compare "provide forged documents" to "didn't Dan Rather forge documents". And yes, there's a serious question regarding his motivation, for reasons cited and which you're getting an early start ignoring.

    27. "... yet another non-truth (lie). You claimed the sudden and huge increase in court cases will clogg it up and then you added that ALL THOSE PEOPLE who will be "scamming the system" will COST the US taxpayers a bundle."

      Why does that rely on specific costs? If people add a bunch of dependents into the system, then there's an increase in costs. Why, especially at this point in time, would we consider that without extremely compelling reasons to do so? The "rights" of people to have as many spouses as they like is not particularly compelling. If you want to argue that payment for housing, food and medical coverage is negligible, I'd like to hear it. Especially since the problem is that you don't know how many people are going to do it, with how many spouses. Going off of your number of 100 people, my hypothetical increase meant 30,000 people. Compared to the pool of government employees, that's a pretty damn low percentage. Even housing and food alone (for me, never mind people who have COLA) is $1300 per month. So you do the math, bearing in mind it's an extremely low estimate, not even including medical costs or COLA.

      Notice that you already had access to those numbers, by the way. Does it make a difference?

      Delete
    28. "Why does that rely on specific costs?" .. Because you used it as a reason to deny consenting adults the right to marry.

      As a principle, sure. I didn't determine a cut-off point where some amount of extra cost was acceptable, though, so specifics don't make or break my argument.

      "... When you can show the taxpayer will be making those payments, I'd like to see it."

      I assume you mean I have to prove that people will take advantage of an opportunity to get money from the government (as opposed to asking for proof that taxpayers pay for government employment, which it also sounds like)? If you don't think that's the case, then you must think that welfare recipients should write their own checks. Nobody does the wrong thing, so it shouldn't be a problem, right? Tell me where you differ from that position, if you do.

      And, if you fear how much money welfare recipients receive, then you should just cut them all off. That way you can save your pressious money for the multitude of court cases already causing a financial drain on our system by those demanding gay marriage.

    Under the circumstances that you're going to give benefits to people who simply take on more spouses. Do you not realize that if I wanted to (and I don't), I could make a profit on that? Simply arrange to take a cut of the housing payments given to my new wives. Why the hell can't I do that? Take 20% from three new wives, that's disposable income of $600 a month. And here's the kicker;I have no interest in having multiple wives. I'm not inclined towards polygamy. Could you prove that, from an outside perspective? Why no, no you could not. You can't prove that I don't genuinely love those women. Again, it's not just about "polygamists", the way you're using the term. It's about people who take advantage of the opportunity.

    "... Are you now calling all polygamists welfare recipients and all welfare recipients scam artists?"

    No, it's a comparison, intended for you to explain your view on human nature. Since that's been straightened out for you, kindly answer the question.

    "And, if you fear how much money welfare recipients receive, then you should just cut them all off."

    Saying that they shouldn't write their own checks doesn't indicate "fear" of how much money they receive.

      No, because the point is that people who have no legitimate interest in polygamy will pretend to. It's not even a comment about genuine polyamorists. As for welfare recipients, some people will surely do that. Some people do rip off welfare, so that's a legitimate concern. Thanks for making that point in my favor. So, can I take it that you support letting welfare recipients write their own checks, since opposition of that seems to be bigoted in your view?

      "Your math means nothing out of context like that. Where is the evidence that the taxpayer will be paying all the money to house/feed/provide medical of all polygamists."

      What "context" do you need for the clear possibility of personal profit? And where did the phrase of "all" polygamists come from? Taxpayers pay for military benefits, so if I (or anyone else) wanted to make that profit, then the taxpayer would cover it. How the question supposedly became coverage for "all" polygamists is a mystery.

      "... yes it does."

      No, it does not. I can support welfare and not want people to have extra loopholes to exploit at the same time. Prove otherwise, if you can.

When YOU said they "People like to have control and power, so if you give multiple spouses equal standing, they will fight for said control and power at the opportunity.". That means when someone marries more than one person "THEY WILL" fight. You didn't say "some" or "a few" or "many". You said "THEY WILL FIGHT". No questions asked ... "they will fight".

      "Taxpayers pay for military benefits, so if I (or anyone else) wanted to make that profit, then the taxpayer would cover it." ... I hate to do this. But, let's go over that slowly. How many polygamists will be in the US military? Of those, how many will be forced to scam the government by "human nature". That will obviously be a very small number. Now, how much is the taxpayer going to pay for housing/food/medical benifits for those NOT in the US military?

      No, any more than saying that if you allow welfare recipients to write their own checks, "people will overpay themselves". It doesn't imply "everyone". Besides that, as if that really had to be explained, not all polygamists are going to work for the government, so your question doesn't make sense on any level.

    So, how does "Now, how much is the taxpayer going to pay for housing/food/medical benifits for those NOT in the US military?" support that argument? You're talking about two completely independent concepts here. The number of polygamists outside of the system doesn't change the number inside the system and vice-versa. All you're doing is restating your claim and pretending that you're substantiating it.

    Also, I'm eagerly waiting to hear what special benefits gay couples get that heterosexual couples do not.

The only way it makes sense is if there's some special benefit to gay marriage, because otherwise what's the motivation to enter a gay marriage as opposed to a traditional marriage?

      It changes the entire framework of marriage, while all laws that apply to that have been based on "two consenting adults". Your pretense that the impact will be minimal and knee-jerk denials to the contrary don't constitute a demonstration otherwise.

      As to your articles, It's not clear what they're supposed to explain. The FRC (again, really?) is simply working from the planted axiom that a man and women is "fundamental" to marriage. That's not a legal argument. Did you notice that? It doesn't explain any legal ramifications, it basically just says they don't like it. The second one isn't even an article, it's proposed law.

That makes no sense. Secondly, I'll ask again how I'm relying on "tradition" to support my argument, especially since it's now magically my "only remaining point". Lack of harm and lack of choice were apparently dropped in some uncitable post, I guess. Third, tradition is never a reason to oppose anything where rights are concerned.

      You:"You have insisted the laws say "2" people."

      Me:"No, I said that was the framework. Every law about marriage is designed with that in mind. I never said it was specifically listed."

      If so, how the hell does that say that "1 man/1 woman" is the "framework"? I was addressing what you said, which was about two consenting adults. Further, from the same post:"No, that's the tradition. The laws are based on the concept of two consenting adults, which is the framework." So, where did I say that the actual law didn't specify one man and one woman? I said quite plainly it was the tradition, as contrasted to the framework of the law.

      "What "tradition" has there EVER been with gay marriage?"

      I didn't say there was one. I'm trying to get you to explain your charge of hypocrisy, because it makes no sense. In fact, I asked you to explain how I wanted to use "tradition" to support gay marriage, and you're just making your position less lucid.

      I have no problem with polyamory. It's also not hypocritical because there's a difference between polygamy and gay marriage. If they were the same, and the same concerns could possibly apply to gay marriage, then I would oppose that too.

      Of course, you can't address that except to stomp your feet and insist it's not true. Much like you can't address the fact that you admit to poor behavior while only accusing me of doing the same, while acting as if that makes you superior to me. Feel free to keep at it, a good laugh is always appreciated.

      Even within your framework (which I don't buy into), there's a difference. By your logic, you could say there's no difference between a Pembroke Welsh Corgi and a Great Dane, because they're both dogs.

      Legally, there's a difference between polygamy and gay marriage because polygamy allows one to have multiple spouses. Gay marriage does not. That is a "difference". Look up the word if it's giving you trouble.

      "... You know why you don't "buy into" my framework? Because MINE IS CORRECT."

      You've proven that homosexuality is unacceptable because it's a perversion? Didn't you just ask for "proof" of my "stance" on another thread?

      "Because you are an atheist with serious pride issues while being a bigoted hypocrite."

      Is there something objectively wrong with being an atheist? You sound awfully pious there. Also, I'm not seeing the middle ground between accepting your ludicrous arguments and having "pride issues". Would you care to explain where that middle ground might be?

      "You haven't been able to defend ANY of your positions without running around in circles whining about semantics and acceptance."

      Me:"Even within your framework (which I don't buy into), there's a difference."

      You're "changing the subject" to bring up anything besides the difference between homosexuality and polygamy. You also have proven no such thing regarding "1 man/1 woman", because the distinction was already made between framework and tradition.

      "... Didn't I just give you 3 fucking reasons why it is wrong? Do you have NO abilities to read at all? (prideful, bigoted, hypocritical)"

      Have you denied being any of those things? Also, what would they have to do with atheism as a concept? And, of course, you haven't substantiated any of those charges against me, even on a personal level.

      "... When that happens you let me know."

      You've insisted that I said that religious displays violate the principle of "captive audience" (I didn't), and that I asserted that genetics influence the "formative years" (I didn't). You also claimed that I "admitted" breaking the law. Again, I didn't. I'm sure I can find more, but that's just off the top of my head. And now you know.

      See how that works? And besides that, the individual is irrelevant. I don't have to prove that you do anything notably wrong in order to talk about how human nature affects our society and system of law. It's a bad idea to leave your car unlocked with valuables in it not because one specific person is going to steal, but because someone is going to.

      Let me explain, you support gay marriage rights. You also oppose polygamy marriage rights. You use the reason of "human nature" to oppose polygamy because you fear so many of them will start sueing each other because that's the way things are. You also deny that gays will be affected by human nature and that the MILLIONS of gay marriages will not affect the court system in the slightest. You think ONLY the polygamist will cause congestion in the court system. Since there will be hundreds of polygamists getting married (in your hypothetical) and all those divorces and fights for control of the hierarchy within the family will simply overwhelm the court system. Yet, at the same time you feel that the MILLIONS of gay marriages will cause NO additional court cases. Then you have the nerve to say that future laws cannot control excessive court cases in polygamy but it can for gays.

      Yeah, let's look at that "big picture".

      "UCMJ is not an arena where I fall victim to any negative inclinations, though." ... Pride comes before the fall. But, given your history of lying, I don't think anyone can seriously believe your statement about being immune to committing a crime while in the military.

      Why do you keep saying that I "deny that gays will be affected by human nature"? I've never said that, I've never suggested it, and you keep repeating it after multiple corrections. In all seriousness, what the hell is wrong with you? As to your second half there, it's exactly the same as if everyone was straight. You have yet to explain how you can draw a line there. Again, if everyone were to "choose" to be straight, are you going to complain about resulting divorces? If not, why not? And if so, what would you do about it?

      I've never claimed I wasn't affected by human nature. I also don't think I said that every single person on Earth was affected. It's more general than that, as has been explained to you.

      "Also, you deny that gays are affected by it."

      Not only have I not said that, but you've been corrected on that point multiple times. Your continued claim shows your lack of honesty, not mine.

      "... Then there would be a shit-load of new cases out there."

      Then there's no difference, obviously. Unless you want to explain how you can deny the "new" straight marriages, you can't very well deny gay marriages based on the notion that they're "new" costs.

      I haven't made up anything, and you can't demonstrate otherwise. Your knee-jerk denials don't reflect on my argument.

      "... I didn't, idiot. And MY statement is what was being replied to."

      No, you replied to my statement, idiot. I mentioned "posters", so you don't get to suggest that "posters" are irrelevant to what I said. Read it again:"A very strange mental incapacity to see in another poster on such a sparsely-populated site."

      "No, I will not do that. You said "certain" in your question. I have NEVER claimed only certain laws were being broken by you or in certain ways."

      You are a liar:http://eddiecabot.blogspot.com/2013/02/republicans-are-scum.html?showComment=1364385067861#c6091170083564131495

      "You say THEY will take advantage of the system because of human nature, but you say you could never do anything illegal in spite of human nature."

      Also a lie. I've never said I could never do anything illegal. I'm saying I've never violated UCMJ. There is a major difference. Maybe with some help, you can figure it out.

      "such a sparsely-populated site." ... I, obviously, am referring to the number of people coming here. You're talking about one person. Apples/oranges.

      What personal business did I specifically say?

      "I'm saying I've never violated UCMJ." ... Oh I've got it figured out. You live 2 separate lives, one as Jesus and another as human.

      " I've never said I could never do anything illegal. I'm saying I've never violated UCMJ." ... Difference between you not doing it and never doing it is different in what way? Are you saying you may still violate those laws or that you never have and never could?

    8. "... Loving relationships between consenting adults can be fulfilled."

      And legal sanctioning is required for that because...?

      "... I, obviously, am referring to the number of people coming here. You're talking about one person. Apples/oranges."

      Absolutely right. Except I said "posters" first, so you're the one who made the stupid comparison. Good job.

      "What personal business did I specifically say?"

      You were referring to posting on this site. What's your supposed point?

      "... Oh I've got it figured out. You live 2 separate lives, one as Jesus and another as human."

      So everyone who doesn't violate UCMJ is the equivalent of Jesus? Wow. UCMJ action is actually pretty rare, overall. That sounds like you're trivializing your lord and savior by comparing him to so many ordinary people.

      "... Difference between you not doing it and never doing it is different in what way?"

      The difference is that I have not violated UCMJ, which says nothing about a claim to never violate any law at any point in my life.

      "Are you saying you may still violate those laws or that you never have and never could?"

      Do you mean UCMJ as a whole, or your phantom articles regarding use of MWR computers for personal business? I don't see why I ever would violate UCMJ, but I wouldn't claim that I "never could". I love how you demand clarification of something that I never even came close to saying. As if your bullshit is suddenly something I'm responsible for. Hilarious.

      Delete
    9. I'll clarify that "absolutely right". I'm not talking about "one person", I'm talking about the number of posters. I'm not sure where you got "one person" from that, but on first reading I sort of glazed over that while laughing at your admission of making the "apples/oranges" comparison.

      Delete
    10. "You were referring to posting on this site." ... I was? Bring full citation of that (prove what you claim).

      "So everyone who doesn't violate UCMJ is the equivalent of Jesus?" ... You are claiming you commit no crimes. There is only one person I know of who can also make that claim.

      "I love how you demand clarification of something that I never even came close to saying." ... Claiming you never "have" violated a very thick book of rules and regulations, is very close to saying you never "could". One leads to the other.

      "I'm not talking about "one person", " .... Hmm, you singled one person out by name. Do all posters have the same name?

      "... You shouldn't be using government equipment to do personal business then. That is called "ILLEGAL" in the US for government employees to use government equipment for personal business."

      Here's how it went;
      Me:"This computer is difficult to edit with."
      You:"... You shouldn't be using government equipment to do personal business then. That is called "ILLEGAL" in the US for government employees to use government equipment for personal business."
      Me:"Apparently you aren't familiar with the acronym "MWR"."
      You:"Ahh, so it's GOOD for morale when you government employees steal from the government? Times (and morals) sure have changed since I was in the Army."

      I eagerly await your semantic contortions to explain how you were talking about something other than posting on this site.

      "... You are claiming you commit no crimes. There is only one person I know of who can also make that claim."

      I haven't violated UCMJ. There are other laws, you know. And besides that, some people really just don't commit any crimes. Do you really want to argue otherwise?

      "Claiming you never "have" violated a very thick book of rules and regulations, is very close to saying you never "could". One leads to the other."

      No, it doesn't. You can't justify that claim.

      ".... Hmm, you singled one person out by name. Do all posters have the same name?"

      I said it was a sparsely-populated site. Meaning few posters. The contrast to your "visitors" figure is the number of posters, not you specifically. You are, as you are so very often, wildly confused.

      Delete
    12. "You shouldn't be using government equipment to do personal business then." ... If this blog site is YOUR personal business operation, then you got me. Otherwise, there is NOTHING that says I am referring to you 'posting' on this site as a crime. Because I (obviously) said "personal business". What "business" are you performing while posting?
      You see, you are not very smart, so I knew what you were going to be whining about. That's why I asked for proof. I didn't think you were able to distinguish "personal BUSINESS" from "personal USE". Did you find the link where I said "personal USE"? Because "posting" would be personal USE, unless you are getting paid for doing this.

      "I said it was a sparsely-populated site. Meaning few posters." ... Just like the above comment, you really need to learn how to read and comprehend. You should SAY what you MEAN and MEAN what you say. You said it was sparsely populated site, but you never said anything about "meaning few posters". Since you singled out ONE particular poster at the "sparsely populated" site.

      Delete
    13. "... If this blog site is YOUR personal business operation, then you got me."

      Funny, I don't remember you using the word "operation" before.

      "Because I (obviously) said "personal business". What "business" are you performing while posting?"

      The phrase "personal business" doesn't mean a job, jackass. Here's an even better question back to you:What the hell did you mean when you used the phrase? Be specific.

      "I didn't think you were able to distinguish "personal BUSINESS" from "personal USE". Did you find the link where I said "personal USE"? Because "posting" would be personal USE, unless you are getting paid for doing this."

      No, the phrase "personal business" isn't restricted to anything regarding money. You are woefully misinformed or making lame excuses for your behavior. I'm guessing the latter.

      "You said it was sparsely populated site, but you never said anything about "meaning few posters"."

      Wrong. I used the word "posters" myself. Hence, "sparsely-populated" would be relevant to that term. The word, again, is "context".

      Delete
    14. "The phrase "personal business" doesn't mean a job, jackass." ... Yes it does. Reading comprehension 101, you should consider taking that class.

      Delete
    15. "... Yes it does."

      No, it doesn't. For instance, "raising my kids is my personal business". That doesn't mean there's payment involved. Besides, you're the one who used the phrase. If you think it means some financial enterprise, why did you use the phrase regarding my activity? What "business" did you think I was running when you said it?

      Delete
    16. I never said "payment" needed to be involved. Changing the parameters again? You're good at doing that. You're not so good at actually addressing the point. Have you signed up for Reading Comp 101, yet?

      Delete
    17. "I never said "payment" needed to be involved."

      You didn't?:"Because "posting" would be personal USE, unless you are getting paid for doing this." Now you're down to distinguishing between "payment" and "paid"? By all means, explain the difference between them. Talking about verbs and nouns isn't going to cut it, in case that's your plan.

      "You're not so good at actually addressing the point."

      So using the word "payment" instead of "paid" is somehow dodging the point, yet you failed conspicuously to address this:"What "business" did you think I was running when you said it?" Remember, you said it meant "a job". What "job" did you think I was acting under when you wrote "personal business"?

      Delete
    18. "You didn't?" ... Are you using my 'hypothetical' as an 'absolute'? Reading Comp 101 is still taking sign-ups. Hurry, you really need it.

    19. "... Are you using my 'hypothetical' as an 'absolute'?"

      How is that a hypothetical when you're talking about me posting here? Are you talking about the possibility of me posting on this site, while you respond to my posts?

    7. No, moron, the question involved your claim that you didn't say payment had to be involved. Here, I'll help you out:

      You:"I never said "payment" needed to be involved."

      Me:"You didn't?:"Because "posting" would be personal USE, unless you are getting paid for doing this." Now you're down to distinguishing between "payment" and "paid"?"

      You:"... Are you using my 'hypothetical' as an 'absolute'?"

    8. Eddie gets paid when you post here. It is a business. Eddie gets paid when he posts here. That means posting at this site is a business (in this situation). Some blog sites don't have so many commercial advertisements. This one does. It is a business.

      Delete
    9. So, here's what you said before:"Otherwise, there is NOTHING that says I am referring to you 'posting' on this site as a crime."

      And:"I never said "payment" needed to be involved."

      And now:"Eddie gets paid when you post here."

      Also earlier, from me:"I eagerly await your semantic contortions to explain how you were talking about something other than posting on this site."

      So now, you are talking about me posting on this site, not a "job" that I happen to have. How is that "illegal", again?

      Delete
    10. "How is that "illegal", again?" ... When have I said that posting here is illegal? Does the Army know about your paranoid delusions? Perhaps they should. Which base are you at again, I'll call them.

      Delete
    11. "... When have I said that posting here is illegal?"

      When you replied to my comment about the computer I was using (to post here) with an accusation of "illegal" activity. And you just explained that comment by talking about me posting here ("Eddie gets paid when you post here").

      So, if you're not talking about me posting here in the context of your charges of UCMJ violations, then what the hell are you talking about?

      "Which base are you at again, I'll call them."

      Funny, you haven't had any problem telling me where I live up until now. Why the change?

      Delete
    12. "When you replied to my comment about the computer I was using (to post here) with an accusation of "illegal" activity." ... So, I didn't actually say posting here was illegal, then did I? I said the method you use could be. You must be a 20 watter.

      "Funny, you haven't had any problem telling me where I live up until now. Why the change?" ... It's difficult dealing with liars, like you, so I needed to tread lightly while I watch you flounder with each of my statements. Now that I've proven you lie like a whore on Bourbon street, it doesn't really matter. I don't expect anything from you expect further lies. Once a liar always a liar. I wonder how much credibility you have left at this site after the way I corralled you into lie after lie.

      Delete
    13. "... So, I didn't actually say posting here was illegal, then did I? I said the method you use could be."

      You said more than that, because when it was pointed out that I was posting from an MWR, you continued to say I was stealing from the government. So, are you now admitting you were wrong, that you had no basis whatsoever to make the accusations you did? I'm not sure why else the word "could" is now in your claim.

      " ... It's difficult dealing with liars, like you, so I needed to tread lightly while I watch you flounder with each of my statements."

      So you talked out of your ass to accomplish some means that you can't exactly explain. Of course, that's very believable. Note the sarcasm.

      And you've still never demonstrated a lie on my part. You love to say it, but proving it seems way beyond your grasp.
