This blog consists mostly of common sense responses to happenings (news articles, political events, etc) that just cry out for someone to say "WHOA! Hang on a second, here!" Too many people get away with just inventing their own facts as they bull-rush their way through an argument.

Unless you're dodging a taxicab or sidestepping a falling gargoyle, it's usually wise to take what time is available to evaluate and apply actual common sense. Good, old wisdom. It is, of course, my opinion, but I'll try to show why I think it's factual.
Thomas Paine said, "To argue with someone who has renounced the use of reason is like administering medicine to the dead." ... but I argue with drunks, egomaniacs, anti-gun Statists, Socialist/Keynesians and climate-fraud peddlers, too.

Akin to name calling is dishonest, obstructionist disinformation.

Harry Reid, the Senate Majority Leader, has been obstructing Republican/Conservative amendments, bills, motions and other rights for years; from Obamacare through stimuli 1-3, while calling for "Republicans, the party of 'no', to present a plan, if they have one".

In this exchange, Mitch McConnel, the Minority Leader, has the rat by the tail.  He is calling for a vote on the false "Jobs" bill presented (and campaigned on) by Obama to be brought up "right away" as Obama himself demanded 15 times in just his first speech on the subject.  Reid knows that too many Democrats will vote against the bill for it to have a ghost of a chance of passage.  This means that the bill's entire purpose - - to try and cast the GOP as the obstructionist bad guys - - will be betrayed to the public.

Watch, this is good:

Thanks to (no, not FOX) CBS News.

Please be reasonably polite, but especially be as accurate as you can. Provide sources if you have them. We might as well learn something. [Wikipedia and blogs are usually 'pointers', not authoritative sources; they indicate data that might be confirmed elsewhere (that's how I use them here)].
