He just wants it, the way they have had it since the 60's. In that manner, his values win!

@Roland And it is disgusting hearing Bill O'Reilly pretend his "work" is of any value.

Let's see, he has the #1-rated cable news program in the country; he generates $millions in ad revenue for his employer; his advertisers are getting their message to millions of potential customers every night; he provides high-payig jobs for dozens of people; he currently has four best-selling books on the NYT list; and he raises $millions for more than 2 dozen different charities.

So, tell us, please, what "work" have YOU done that's so much more valuable than that?

I didn't think so.

"If the Dems had the 60 votes to pass "cloture" then they had the same 60 votes to pass the Bill, unless I'm horribly mistaken?"

They didn't have 60 votes, or they had it for a small amount of time. I'm on my phone so i'm not looking it up. Correct me if i'm wrong.

"In the "old days" (pre-Obama) the two sides would *gasp!* talk and come to a compromise!"

Remember when I first jumped in and said I was pointing to two factors mconnel's quote and cloture votes? The senate minority leader said his main goal was defeat the president. Then cloture votes skyrocketed. So you take that as being Obama's fault? The dems don't need cloture votes to stop discussing they need them to stop filibusters because the senate republicans have stated quite clearly that they Errol block any legislation the president tries to make.

markust: And as I noted, there are ways around cloture and filibusters. It doesn't always take 60 votes.

In the "old days" (pre-Obama) the two sides would *gasp!* talk and come to a compromise! So I point out that this is NOT happening under Obama, and @HG provided proof of what I said! thx!

Obama: so good at compromise he never does it!

I was grumpy last night, eh? Thanks for your kind words @HG and @markust

Back to arguing!

@HG: So you admit that the Dems had the 60 votes, so you propose examples of them NOT negotiating as proof of their ability to compromise?
Many Senate bills get passed with less than 60 votes, at least BEFORE Obama took office.

However there is nothing wrong with being gay and nothing that needs to be fixed.

True that! I'm talking about the stigma attached to either. "Gayness" used to be highly discriminated against - true! People have become a lot more tolerant, accepting even! That's a + for Western Civilization!

You mention the debt constantly on here and you flat out didn't when Bush was in charge.

Didn't need to under Bush: the MSM did it EVERY DAY! They also attacked him for the 5.5% unemployment rate!!! Imagine that!

My point is Media Hypocricy, not IAB members.

@Crackrjak, "You said "Pass Legislation", NOT "Pass A Cloture Vote". "

Quit moving the goal post Crackrjak. Below is HG's full comment. It is quite clear he is talking about the whole process including having to pass a cloture vote because Republican's filibuster everything:

"You need 60 Senators to pass legislation. Since Republicans rarely to never crossed party lines and filibustered everything, he in no way had "total control". "

Fox isn't even a news station. Fox is the thinly-veiled propaganda arm of the RNC.

"Obama also missed 303 votes (46 percent of all votes that came before the Senate) in 2008."

Actually, the number I found is that he missed 64% of votes. That happens when you run for president. That same year McCain missed 80% of Senate votes.

"You said "Pass Legislation", NOT "Pass A Cloture Vote".

I did say that. I was talking about the entire process to pass legislation, and unfortunately, in our current political climate a cloture vote is needed to pass anything.

My ex struggled with depression. Try to stay positive and hopefully things will get better. Have you tried smoking weed? It helped her at times.

HG: No gay person will ever adversely affect my life by being gay.


There are many ways that anyone can adversely affect your life. An Alcoholic could adversely affect your life by driving on the same road as you. A blogger could make a mistake and adversely affect your life by posting something about you. A person texting on the phone could send a text, mistakenly, to your phone and your partner see it and adversely affect your life.

There are countless ways your life could be adversely affected, and it could possibly be by a gay person being gay.

HG: You said "Pass Legislation", NOT "Pass A Cloture Vote".

Markust: The senate has gotten around cloture using tricks like reconciliation and budget resolutions are exempt from cloture. There is also the "Nuclear Option" whereby the senate changes the procedural rules.

HG: Again, you are reading it wrong, abstentions and being absent still counts toward their total vote count, but not toward their liberal/conservative score. Then they discard a whole category if they don't vote often enough, which eliminates those liberal/conservative votes, in that category, that they did make.

The leftist organization Americans for Democratic Action (ADA) similarly rated Obama’s Senate voting record at 97.5 percent. Obama also missed 303 votes (46 percent of all votes that came before the Senate) in 2008.

Quit trying to gloss over the fact that Obama's voting record was extremely liberal.

"Obama hold the record for voting "present" despite other senators being in office for DECADES!"

FACTCHECK FACTCHECK FACTCHECK

Obama never voted "present" in the U.S. Senate. You can't really vote present as far as I know. This is a messed up talking point. He voted "present as a state senator in Illinois 129 times out of 4,000 votes in eight years. That is only 3%. Is that a record? I don't know, but I doubt it. Post a link to back up your statement.

"Mentally ill VS gay: which one will be MORE discriminated against in 2012?"

1. That depends on where you are and who you are talking to. Nobody is going to picket your funeral or drag you to death behind a car for being mentally ill.

2. I don't have to fear gay people. No gay person will ever adversely affect my life by being gay. Someone with mental illness could kill me or my kids.

"And the fact remains: I'm "sick" while you are "acceptable". In 2012 standards of course."

You ARE sick. There IS something wrong with you. Something you are taking medication to fix. I wish you luck with that. However there is nothing wrong with being gay and nothing that needs to be fixed. Not sure what your point is? Comparing mental illness and gay is like comparing diabetes and being asian.

"16,000,000,000,000.00 in REAL DEBT? Or did you first hear of it via MY post at IAB?"

No I knew. I might not have known it passed that day, but I knew it was close. I have a pretty good idea withing a quarter trillion where the debt is simply by trying to stay informed.

I've told you before it is an issue. I am against the spending. But I am the same no matter who is in charge, that is my only point. You aren't. You mention the debt constantly on here and you flat out didn't when Bush was in charge.

"LIE! LIE! LIE! LIE!
You KNOW @HolyGod that it only takes 51 Seante votes!"

I was going to respond to this, but Markust did it beautifully.

"The only way to force Senators to stop deliberating is by a cloture vote, and that takes 60 votes. HolyGod is absolutely correct in his statement. You need 60 Senators to pass pretty much any legislation now days. All it takes is 41 senators to filibuster a bill."

I wasn't being sarcastic. I never would with maters such as this.

Well I thought so @markust! But had to ask to be sure, eh?
Yeah: taking medication for mental illness? You want to compare "stigma" with me? Hummm?
Mentally ill VS gay: which one will be MORE discriminated against in 2012?
I'll put my money on Mentally Ill, and give 2:1 odds to boot!
And the fact remains: I'm "sick" while you are "acceptable". In 2012 standards of course.

@HG: "factcheck" my shiny ass! You suck! Pbbbt!

LIE!
LIE! LIE! LIE!
You KNOW @HolyGod that it only takes 51 Seante votes!
I am sickened by you!
Seriously, this is an unforgivable lie. Recant or face being ignored. I know you'll make excuses, but F-Dat! YOU KNOW it's a lie so admit it!

Did you ONCE come on this site and post a video about the debt hitting $8 Trillion or $10 Trillion?

NOPE! The MSM did a VERY efficient job of detailing EVERY mistake, real OR IMAGINED that Bush II ever made!
And I for sure cried out against his idiotic "bail out" and other liberal measures. Bank on it Bro!
I ask you again: did the MSM mention, even ONCE the passing of 16,000,000,000,000.00 in REAL DEBT? Or did you first hear of it via MY post at IAB?

Fianlly: @HG: Obama hold the record for voting "present" despite other senators being in office for DECADES!
