. What we are talking about are lies. ACORN, mice in California, and LA to Vegas rail lines.
Why no more ACORN? Why no more mice saving?

S.Amdt.107 -- Fail -- Prohibiting direct or indirect use of funds to fund the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN).

Train to Nowhere?

To tell the truth I wouldn't know what was on CBS or NBC or any of the MSM today, just talking heads talking about what other people say. MSM is in the pocket of the Rethugs. I preffer primary sources, cut out the middle men.

Bills are vauge, it's for the executive branch to implement them as congress intended. There's even a web site for you to follow the money spending process step by step through the processs.

http://www.recovery.gov/

We now know who and why the 8B for rail was inserted anyway. You can look it up yourself, it's been out there for 10 hours.

JTapia I didn't find your amendment on your link, but I believe you. What I'd like to know is why an amendment for something that isn't there. Why not an amendment not to feed martians blue cheese? It's not in the bill itself, any winger can prapose a nutty amendment.

I didn't say taxes or borrowing are bad. I think taxes are good, not in the middle of a downturnlike this but as soon as we are out of it. At times like these you do anything to try to prime the pump. This evening Greenspan suggested nationalizing banks. Things aren't quite as normal lately. Fiscal sobriety is good, that's one of the reasons I preffer Dems, they are much better with the money, grownups. Reagan, Bush, Bush, were like drunken sailors, irresponsible.

As I said about lying already I try to be very carefull that when I quote someone it is a true statement. I use good sources. Fox and some Repubs have shown themselves to be very dishonest in the interest of propaganda, the train, mouse, ACORN, shenanegans being prime examples. As I've explained there's a vast difference between a bald faced lie and an opinion. If you don't know the difference you should.

According to my sources at Fox News there actually was an amendment to prohibit the feeding of blue cheese to martians.
It stemmed from an incident that predates printed history and was uncovered in writings by Nostradamus. It would seem that due to saltwater intrusion into the cheese supply that the martians could no longer consume the Colby jack cheese they had become accustomed to.
It was then that James Kirk (it is unknown if it was the same James Kirk in Star Trek) came up with a process to extract the pine tar from the wild cherry trees. From this the anti diarrhea remedy Pepto Bismo was derived and it was then determined that feeding Martians blue cheese cause neighborhood stray pet dogs to bark for no apparent reason so the amendment passed.

You appear to think that all these guys and gals that are members of the House and Senate have no contact with each other until minutes before a vote.
Don't play naive and act as though deals aren't made and backs scratched and palms greased during back room dealings.
These "leaks" that make it to the media are not lies, its how 90% of the news from Washington gets reported. NBC, CBS, CNN, ABC, MSNBC all have stories on the Train between LA and LV. I haven't checked the NY Times as they are not considered a News source by me, but rather a propaganda and opinion paper.
