It is the textbook definition of a “factoid”: an often repeated premise or widely held assumption based on erroneous information that will not withstand scrutiny but is believed to be true. ie: Global Warming/Global Climate Change/Liberals’ concern for anyone but themselves
Suffix:”-oid” from Greek word meaning “resembling” or “like”
Remember the movie “CHUD” Cannibalistic Humanoid Underground Dwellers?

A star in her senior high school play, no doubt.

Wonder how long she practiced her hands on hips defiant posture and expression in front of a mirror, looked awfully contrived to me even w/o info on her pretender status.

We had women in the men’s room when I was in college in the 70′s, in the guy’s dorm it was too far to walk to the women’s rest room (toilets only) on the first floor, and nobody cared. I saw more than one coed stepping out of the shower, no complaints from me.
If it had been the other way around in the girl’s dorm, probably different story. Men are just better at sharing space with nekkid women.

The scary thing is anyone with half an ounce of good sense understands that the media is 95% liberal already.
I have a very intelligent but very misguided friend who will tell me with a straight face that NPR, PBS,NYT, etc are “unbiased journalism” so to him lib crap seems reasonable. Publishing the fact that survey after survey shows 90%+ lib voting for all media journalists won’t change a thing; to them the “middle of the road” is way off the left side already.
To today’s mainstream Dem, JFK would be a right wing extremist wacko, war monger, and financial imbecile…lower tax rates to get more income, what an idiot!

Sporks for everyone,knives for none! Sporks for everyone,knives for none!
You get the idea.

Check the transcript, McCarthy said her poll numbers were down as a result of the investigation, true, and very different from saying the purpose of the investigation is to get her poll numbers down.

The same folks who believe Stephen Colbert and John Stewart are (were) news shows. Scary.

On behalf of porcupines and fertile felines everywhere, I object. Animals dont define themselves while the Hildebeast calculates every move and crafts every lie.

I’m sure that phrase was repeated many times over in Germany after WW2 when asked about participation in all variety of barbarism and inhumanity: it was allowed.

To them the Constitution is just a compendium of suggestions, some old and out-moded, others open to wild interpretation. Free Speech is great if the speaker agrees with you, guns are bad unless a Lib owns them…on it goes.

Imagine these West hating clowns writing headlines in Dec. 1941: “Japanese Pilots Stage Free Unscheduled Sunday Morning Air Show in Hawaii, Some Property Damage on the Ground Reported”

100% true story: In the mid-70′s my girlfriend was knocked in the head and had her purse stolen while in the parking garage of the new Omni Hotel and downtown mall in Atlanta. In those pre-litigious times she just wanted compensation for what was stolen and her emergency care expenses and went to small claims court asking for $1200.
Court day a very quick month later: 5′ 2″ cute 22 y.o. blond still with a bandage on her head facing 2 high priced lawyers in (adjusted for inflation) $2000 suits. Lawyers claimed she was on her own and essentially the building owners had no responsibility for anything. The judge said “You built this facility and now invite people to come to it, you’re happy to take their money. You cannot then turn around and claim you have no responsibility whatsoever for their safety. Young lady, I wish I could award you more but this court can only address what’s in the claim before it.”
Today: “You built this university and gladly take the money of those you invite to attend it, you cannot now claim you have no responsibility for their safety. I find for the plaintiff in the amount of $100 million dollars.”
A few judgments like that after these shooting events and things might change.

Fact check: If the Young Republicans had set up an info table at Berkeley in 1970 and talked about why they thought the Vietnam War was a good thing, no one would have listened and most likely the YR’s would have been in for a brawl so don’t buy that utopia of free ideas crap at universities 40+ years ago.
I stopped giving any money to my alma mater when in the early 80′s they refused to let very well known conservative speak on campus even after the invitation had been extended months before by the university lecture series committee. Too many bratty kids whined and moaned and the admin immediately caved.

I recall some comment from Ayatollah Obama regarding “his Muslim faith” a while back but I guess that’s all been shown to be irrelevant.

Did someone screw up up call her a journalist? She’s a Lib myrmidon of the first order and would sell out her own children if Lord Obama so decreed.
I bet her “Ready for Hillary” Depends get a bit squishy every time she sees her wannabe new BFF on the campaign trail.

A very Liberal acquaintance of mine tried repeatedly to tell me Ms Rehm was unbiased, of course anyone who agrees with a Lib is unbiased.
I was traveling and tuned in by mistake to Ms Rehm and the few minutes I could stand contained unbiased chat with a panel for which Ms R opened the discussion with (and I paraphrase…but pretty close): “just for the sake of discussion, let’s assume all Republicans are misogynists, racists and war mongers. Now I’m not saying that’s true, of course (sure, I’m buying that), but just to get the discussion rolling.”
That’s as far as I could get. National Proletariat Radio’s octogenarian sweetheart with a voice from the crypt.

Kayakers are like bicycle riders, they think the rules don’t apply to them and when being a bonehead catches up with them they whine.
NOAA regs say Do Not get within 100 yards of a humpback whale for the safety of the whale and the observers. Obviously no fun for the idiotic kayakers who have a fatality rate far above the average for all boaters and grossly disproportionate to their percentage of total recreational boaters.
