My thought exactly. Supposedly MSNBC is the balance to FOX, but I honestly can’t imagine the FOX doing something like this. By signing it “MSNBC staff” they’re not even pretending to have a wall between news and opinion. It’s like they’re totally breaking character.

I probably shouldn’t be, but I am slightly stunned by this. Are they pushing a new limit here or have they been this “out” in the past?

Indeed, projecting is what they always do, and arguing with themselves, which is even worse and more laughable.
They accomplish it by contriving hypothetical questions no thinking Conservative would ever try to argue about, then,
voila! Look at all these great answers we have to your “questions!”

When He Says: “Obama thinks its morally ok to torture and murder a healthy baby in the womb up to the ninth month.”

You Say: “That’s true... Now that I think about it, I might like everything else about Obama, but since he believes that, he is disqualified to be the leader of our country. What kind of man believes it’s fine to do that?... Hitler maybe, but not my President”

Ok course, the people posting on MSNBC won’t say that because they’re morally and spiritually bankrupt. They’re Obama worship blinds them to the truth.

The assumption is there's only one per family when virtually half the country voted for one candidate and the other half voted for a Communist.

It's more likely there's only one who takes the bait and responds to whatever drivel is spouted by some no-class Liberal panty-waist who just can't help him or herself from bringing politics up at the gathering.

I relish being that Conservative.

We will have our fights and one SIL will get so upset over all of us arguing she will cry. But it will be hard core conservative versus social conservative versus libertarian versus religious conservative versus national security hawk. It will be very serious and all well informed. There will be a few liberals there but they dare not speak.

LOL. Leftists need prepared talking points just to have dinner with their families. Can’t ANY of them think for themselves?

Heh, heh. Good point.

As the family Conservative, we only need one reply on our list, "Ah. So YOU'RE the one who watches MSNBC."

You said they imagine themselves to be “master debaters”. Perhaps enough said would be to remind them of the inappropriateness of master debating in public at a family gathering.

I hope some low info lib comes at me with those “facts.” What a bunch of cherry picked, inch deep drivel. They are hanging curve balls. I especially like the ones where they suggest a topic shift when the conservative suggests that jobs will be lost. Suddenly the lib is instructed to change the topic to the socialist’s wet dream of income equality.

I don’t believe voter fraud won this for obama so they won’t have to use that argument with me. It’s a fact that the majority voted for safety nets or outright wealth transfers.

Never be bullied by them and speak up for our country, people have given their lies and I ‘ll be damned that I can not even say something when people have died and given their lives

When I first got married my wife had a "best friend" and her husband over for Christmas dinner. They showed up about two hours late (the food was already put away), and this woman started rambling about not wanting the "christian right" in her bedroom. Now she was a big ole gal, so I saw fit to inform her she was damn lucky she could even get her husband into her bedroom.

I then proceeded to show them the door, yes I threw them out of my home on Christmas Day. That was the last we ever heard from her, and that was 18 years ago.

This is my home, if you choose to spout leftist talking points here, you will be shown the door. That holds true for family as well.

WE MUST AVOID LEFTIST DRONES AT ALL SOCIAL GATHERINGS AND ELECTIVE SITUATIONS. THEY ARE THE ENEMY.

Of course, for our own survival, we must deal with Leftists if we have Leftists as customers in business situations, or as co-workers. However, we need to avoid Leftists and Leftist businesses in elective and social situations. If you feel that you must attend a social gathering with Leftist, drone relatives, make your appearance, say nothing of consequence and leave.

This is the time for redoubling our preparations. The emphasis must be to establish and build on ties with like-minded conservative friends and groups.

It’s sad looking at that map, my town in Conn used to have more cows and chickens than residents, by about 4-1. You always knew when the chicken coops or cow barns were being cleaned out—hmm, smell that Dairy Air.

Then the kids of the upper-crust, liberal suburbs discovered it and decided they loved the bucolic life. And proceeded to turn it into their upper-crust, liberal suburb. Now we have stories in the newspaper about jerks complaining to city hall that their neighbors have chickens which make too much noise.

At least a few towns still have large swaths of corn, cow pastures (dairy). Not many big chicken farms anymore though.

The good news about the election is that when you finally get into see your unionized government doctor for your euthanasia shot, it will be paid for by some unknown rich atheist and approved by a death panel in a far distant city. Best of all there will be no remorse from anyone.

They are nervous.

They know that if they had lost they’d still be having a group hissy fit.

Our command of confidence in the country’s future and our allowance that voter fraud, though present, need simply to be overcome by greater numbers and Obama like knowledge of the Electoral map.

We have God, better looking people, more successful/self reliant people, the good part of the military, Biblical truth, Reagan and his success, the love and care of children, families and above just about all, anti abortion on our side.

They know it. And that’s all prior to the economic frazzle we’re about to encounter which no one in the media is going to be able just not able to blame on anyone but Obama.

Oh, yeah, we have Boehner on our side. Never mind.

6. When He Says: “If Obama raises taxes on the job creators, it’s going to force them to start laying people off. Is that what you want?” You Say: “Actually, a recent study by the nonpartisan Congressional Research Service found that raising the top tax rate wouldn’t have any impact on growth, but it would slow the recent dramatic increase in income inequality. And by the way, Republicans tried to kill that report because they didn’t like its findings.”

Then, the conservative should say that the actual causes of economic growth are:

1) increases in innovation
2) anticipation of changes in demand by businessmen
3) increasing technological advances
4) increasing productivity of labor
5) increasing capital accumulation
6) increasing supply of capital goods
7) increasing efficiency of production
8) increasing amount of savings and investment
9) increased ability to cut costs of production by businessmen
10) increased velocity of spending
11) increase in the money supply
12) increase in aggregate demand.
And, that raising tax rates tend to decrease saving and investment which has a negative effect on economic growth.

7. When He Says: “What about Obamacare? We’re trillions of dollars in debt already. Obamacare is only going to make that worse. We just can’t afford it.” You Say: “Actually, the law includes numerous cost-saving ideas, and studies have found that it’ll reduce the amount we spend on health care. One authoritative study found that by 2019, we’ll have saved $590 billion.”

Then the conservative should say that according to the study, “The law also begins to change how providers are paid and care is delivered, so that they are rewarded not for the volume of services they provide but for the value they offer.”

So they are going to save money by enslaving doctors.

Personally I can;t even be around a liberal any more, they’;re the biggest idiots and the dumbest voters in our history.

Liberalism is all about “emotional truth” which is that if you feel something strongly enough, it’s “true” thus logic no longer applies...
