So my Twitter feed is filled with tweets about the women's soccer win. There must be over 100 separate tweets from different people. President EGG, Huggins, Seider, and other coaches all congratulating. Pics of people watching at a full BW3 in Motown. Remember when whatever that podcaster's name was (I honestly cannot remember--the guy that got booted and had a meltdown) said nobody gave a crap about sports other then football and men's basketball? I wonder what he is thinking now?

Always playing the role of the victim, you sound like my bipolar ex-wife.



I don't see how you logically got to 'victim' from this statement. I also have a bipolar ex & that part doesn't make sense either. This has nothing to do with the topic y'all were discussing. I'm just saying...


This was more an off handed jab. I addressed his comments in the previous posts.

I was making the point that the fake news talking point was just another way to control narrative. Then after some back and forth, he was pretty much stating the same position in reverse. He was defending a narrative derived to gain control over news, information, what have you. He then turns around and states that it is the left being victimized by "fringe right" talking points.

He was basing his argument on the fact that what I stated was ridiculous, and purely based on information stated by the right fringe. Well obviously he didn't even do a simple web search before calling BS and demanding a link. $#!+! I found it on the first try. I even found where Jay Rockefeller made the racist if you oppose Obamacare statement.

Yes my ex was bipolar. She was great in a lot of ways. Though after an episode she'd come back to earth and nothing was ever her fault. Whether it was the dent she punched in my truck, or the hole she made in the wall with the toilet seat, or the time I had to wrestle the pistol away from her before she got it loaded, there was never accountability for her actions. It was my fault for making her feel bad if I brought it up. It's like the up and down flow of emotions caused a disconnect in how she perceive the world. (Emphasis on nothing was ever her fault, it was always someone else who was wronging her.)


Damn man $#!+ aint funny if ya got to explain it all the time. I was just trying to be a wise ass, give me a break.


I googled the exact search you requested, and you know what came up? A bunch of stories about how actual studies showed that the right had implicit biases based on race against Obamacare because they had been peppered with fake news stories about how Obama was leading a black army to come and exact revenge. They did the same thing with guns and other issues. But, the point is that the race issue is (1) a provably true issue and (2) a result of right wing fake news stories that primed (google the term priming) to tie race to the ACA. This isn't about being a victim. That is your fucked up narrative. It is about people having the critical thinking skills to separate bullshit from fact. We are all the victim of that level of stupidity because these people get a vote, and they are incredibly susceptible to bullshit.


Well then I guess we all know where you've been getting your rhetoric.

Apart from The Hitler youth culture, exactly where are you getting your "facts" about racism being mainly propagated from the right wing media? You make a lot of statements. Educate me if you will. Perhaps you can enlighten me on avenues of "real news".


Not really interested in carrying on a conversation with you. Name calling and ignorance isn't really a recipe for enlightenment. Good luck.

Proving my point without realizing it. Oh the irony.

Skyler creates too much drama. He achieved good results, but there was some baggage, and that is on him. I don't dislike him, but his comments are a little much. I bet the cheers to boos ratio was like 80:20, but he only listened to the boos.

When you have evenly matched teams in soccer it comes down to heart and the desire and ability to do work. The teams that have shown heart and have worked all year have the advantage because it isn't something you can call on in a game. You have to have been calling on it since you opened camp in the Summer. WVU has won a lot of close games this year and had a shutout record of almost 940 consecutive minutes--which is more than 10 straight games without conceding. You don't get those results without working your collective ass off as a team. Soccer is a cruel sport, but I like their chances.

I guess it would be deep down the rabbit hole if it is something you've set your mind to ignore. It wasn't that far back that I heard the left leaning media (not fringe, common left media or "real news" whatever ) accuse people of being racist for opposing Obama care. Forget that they may have had legitimate concerns. They are racists and their concerns don't count.

Now the same talking heads are pushing this real news narrative.

Yes you are in a hole, but not one made by a rabbit. It consists of sand, and has consumed only your head.


Do you have a link to this? Because I don't see the connection, and I have seen a lot of right wing websites repeatedly make false claims about liberals claiming people are racist, and that "accusation", like all the other made up stories, becomes "fact" in the viewers minds. They also misinform viewers regarding liberal arguments, liberal values, and liberal policy positions so that they are illogical and absurd. This doesn't promote a healthy discourse.

Yes and if you want to see a YouTube clip showing media outlets and reporters repeating the same talking point to persuade their viewers, just click on the YouTube link I posted on the first page.


You need to be able to distinguish between the media and the people they are interviewing. The media wasn't saying "power through" repeatedly. That was Hillary Clinton's campaign staff. They aren't the media. It is up to us to be able to comprehend that a professional staffer is not unbiased. But, that is not the same as the media spinning a story or basing a story on speculations and assumptions rather than facts.

I predict that we won't see any of those smug Baylor douchenozzles this week. They can go back to hibernating for the rest of their lives.

Like I said, it was a right wing solution to healthcare. The Heritage Foundation is a right wing think tank. (1) The left wing wants single payer. (2) The right wing proposal was a plan that required everyone to buy into healthcare. (3) Obama goes with the right wing proposal to compromise. (4) The Republicans start screaming "Tyranny!"

There was also another compromise with a constituency--insurance companies. They didn't want to lose the business of health insurance. It was lucrative, and is still lucrative for them. Obama gave them a seat at the table, then they worked with the Republicans to tear it down so they could go back to the days of pre-existing conditions and other reasons to deny coverage after people had paid their premiums.

Do the MATH.

6,000 plaintiffs.

Settlement = $25,000,000.

Minus 35% attorney's fees = $16,250,000.

Divided by 6,000 plaintiffs = $2,708 per plaintiff.

Now, you tell me ... WHO really won???


Are these the real numbers? Or assumption?

Viewpoints aren't "fake." They are actual viewpoints. But viewpoints, or opinions, are only as good as the facts on which they are based. So, when you have articles from "news" sources with the headline, "Person X Says Conservatives Are Evil," but then the article actually reports the person was talking about Nazis, you have fake news. Or, when you have innuendo and speculation disguised as facts, you have fake news. And, when you have many websites recycling the same fake facts, people begin to accept them as true and form their "viewpoints" based on nonsense.

You mean like when CNN and Fox news do this thing you refer to.


Probably so. I don't watch either. They seem to get a lot of people angry about non-stories when they should be paying attention to important stories.

hilly - you are an idiot, and I don't say that lightly. Did Obama work with the Republicans on the ACA? The answer is a resounding no. Did Obama start a war on the police in March/April 2009 over Skippy Gates? The answer is yes and the history of the following six year proves it.

Get off of your holier than thou soapbox.


You are wrong on both counts. The fact is Obama actually compromised with the Republicans on the ACA because it was a right wing solution. The ACA itself IS the compromise--he picked their plan. What more can you ask for? Then they went full bore misinformation campaign and people fell for it. It is hard to fathom how someone can actually claim Obama didn't try to work with the Republicans. Their leadership's first statement after his 2008 election was that they wanted to make him a one term President and that their job was to oppose everything he attempted to do.
