Skip to comments.Facts, 360 B.C.-A.D. 2012: Facts has finally died
Posted on 04/29/2012 3:57:39 PM PDT by hoagy62
A quick review of the long and illustrious career of Facts reveals some of the world's most cherished absolutes: Gravity makes things fall down; 2 + 2 = 4; the sky is blue.
But for many, Facts' most memorable moments came in simple day-to-day realities, from a child's certainty of its mother's love to the comforting knowledge that a favorite television show would start promptly at 8 p.m.
Over the centuries, Facts became such a prevalent part of most people's lives that Irish philosopher Edmund Burke once said: "Facts are to the mind what food is to the body."
To the shock of most sentient beings, Facts died Wednesday, April 18, after a long battle for relevancy with the 24-hour news cycle, blogs and the Internet. Though few expected Facts to pull out of its years-long downward spiral, the official cause of death was from injuries suffered last week when Florida Republican Rep. Allen West steadfastly declared that as many as 81 of his fellow members of theU.S. House of Representatives are communists.
Facts held on for several days after that assault brought on without a scrap of evidence or reason before expiring peacefully at its home in a high school physics book. Facts was 2,372.

Facts has finally be dead.
If Facts are indeed dead, then it was preceded in death by its long-time partner, Common Sense.

“as many as 81 of his fellow members of the U.S. House of Representatives are communists”
That’s what has people upset, it’s the gross underestimation of the number.
fact the republican party today is what the democrat party was in the early pre-lbj ‘60s.
fact the democrat party today is at best a neo-socialist party similar to what has destroyed western europe.
fact progressives are not. progressives are communists in suits.
fact the enviro whacko movement is where the communists went after the collapse of the soviet union (watermelons)and is a pagan cult/religion
fact the gorebull warming scam is a hoax and isall about redistribution of wealth, not science.
Needs to put down his crack pipe.
The so-called author of this piece is upset because Rep. West’s facts do not line up with his wacko-left ideology and blindness to the truth.
Just another “journalist” who needs whacked upside the head with a ‘clue-by-four’.
The resident of the Whitehouse is a friggin communist. Is It such a stretch to see Dhimmicrat congress idjits being the same as their messiah?
Have we not seen a prime example in the criminal actions of the press re the Trayvon/Zimmerman story - and their actions have caused innocent people to have to go into hiding - and one may go to prison - BECAUSE of the actions and words of the press - and the president.
Together, Communist Party and Socialist Party leaders established the Democratic Socialists of America, and they share a common ideology which is now the platform and mantra of todays DNC - CPUSA
Insert the word Democrats where Communists appears in this statement, and you have the central message of todays Democrat leadership.
To gain full control of the Democrat Party, DSA leadership established two congressional legislative bodies, headed by DSA/CPUSA/SPUSA members. Today, these are the two congressional bodies in control of congress.
They are the Congressional Progressive Caucus established by Socialist Party member Bernie Sanders of Vermont, and the Congressional Black Caucus established by Communist Party member John Conyers of Michigan...”
meet the "progressive members" if the Communist/Socialist Party http://cpc.grijalva.house.gov/index.cfm?ContentID=161&ParentID=0&SectionID=4&SectionTree=4&lnk=b&ItemID=159 meet the Black Caucus members - oops, looks like they've arleady got that list scrubbed AS TO WHAT COL WEST SAID: Here again the media is burying the facts - full our playing the rules of misdirection...Do they mention the disclosure of the Communist/Socialist Party of America just previous to West's statement?
Of course not. WILLFUL omission and DELIBERATE misdirection.
Who is reporting that WEst was merely reiterating what the Communist/Socialist Party themselves said?
WHO is sticking up for West? Are YOU? have you even done due diligence and done any research on this?
Are you now going to get the word out - are you going to email everyone - are you going to contact your reps and DEMAND they stand up for Col West?
No. Didn't think so. I understand. Dancing with the Stars, American Idol, CSI etc....
Sins of OMISSION are as criminal as sins of COMISSION - have a nice night.
We would love to have you go home -- to Kenya (or maybe Indonesia)
I would write my Reps in Congress...except that they are ALL likely on Rep. West’s List of 81 and would probably ignore it.
Strong, Conservative Congressional candidates in November...working towards that even now.
oops - for some reason - the live link in my post didnt’ ‘post’ correctly
meet the “progressive members” if the Communist/Socialist Party
Should be CCA-treated lumber, too. Maybe a bent nail sticking out.
Col West (a military rank always outdoes a political one) would have to be dead for years for his IQ to shrink to that odpf the bests”journalist” working for that soon to be bankrupt rag.
Huppke would have said 2 + 2 = 5 and called it fact if it benefited the Party.
First of all, gravity doesn’t ‘make’ things fall down. It describes how things fall down.
And yes, Col West is right about the commies in Congress.
I guess the reporter has never been to a Pelosi press conference. She's personally responsible for a fact holocaust.
Someone who believes in, works for and promotes the cause of fascism is objectively a fascist. Even if he never joins a Fascist Party.
Similarly, someone who believes in, works for and promotes the cause of Marxism is objectively a communist, even if he never joins a Communist Party.
