Commenting Policy

Please, make a fact-based argument, rather than tagging authors and commenters with disparaging or belittling pejoratives.

In general, I leave dissenting comments, but when a dissenting commenter becomes a nuisance, and particularly is not addressing the central issue of a topic I have chosen to post on, I reserve the right to delete those comments at my sole discretion. When I ask a commenter to move on (to stop commenting on a particular post) I expect he/she to do so, and if he/she does not, I will ban them.

I reserve the right to delete rude and/or foul and accusatory language toward me or anyone else commenting here.

    While searching Obama’s transcript vs Boehner’s I see a huge differance. Obama is just saying ask the wealthy Americans and big corps to give up some of their tax breaks and special deductions.
    vs
    Boehner’s
    plan, and with bipartisan support. It’s called the ‘Cut, Cap, and Balance’ Act. It CUTS and CAPS government spending and paves the way for a Balanced Budget Amendment to the Constitution, which we believe is the best way to stop Washington from spending money it doesn’t have. Before we even passed the bill in the House, the President said he would veto it.

    What’s going on? Obama makes it sound simple and he makes Boehner sound ridiculous… hence Marxism?

    Here sets the stage.. your right the devil is a smooth talker and will sway many

    Maggie,

    Obama and Holder have used the debt ceiling issue to cover and subvert American’s attention from the gun debacle with Mexico “fast and furious”? NO ONE is focusing on this issue, which seems to have all but disappeared. You ran an article by an author who made the prediction that Obama would step aside and Biden would pardon the lot.

    How can this issue be brought back to center stage so that the spot light can be focused on Obama and Holder’s involvement??

    This is a national crisis in and of itself…….Please let me know what you think….

      Andrea, my apologies for taking a few days to get back to this. Yes the debt limit debate has bumped F&F off the front burner, but I don’t think it will disappear. I am readying to do an update, but the thing we must remember is that Congress is on Vaca until after Labor Day. I think things will be fairly quiet until then. I promise you, I’m not letting up and neither are my blogging friends who have been after this hot and heavy. I

      It’s great to know that a reader feels the same way I do about this abominable and murderous “operation.”

      I really think though we won’t hear a lot more until September. I’ll do my best to keep it on top of the stack of stuff:-)

    “Comments here are typically unmoderated and unedited.” that is unless they represent an opposing pint of view… then the are edited or outright deleted…

      Concerned Citizen, I delete only when someone is profane, or refuses to acknowledge the point I’m making. A commenter here doesn’t have to agree with me, but at some point, when repeating their same thing argument, over and over, I maintain the right to remove them from the conversation.
