I didn't stretch anything. You made a truth claim above. You said when a President speaks, he speaks "fact," whereas when anyone else speaks, they speak only "opinion." Those are your words, not mine.

And your claim is patently false. Presidents offer "opinions," even "untruths," all the time. And non-Presidents offer "facts" all the time.

Ben Franklin still has wise words. It is a shame that your ears are closed to them.

Hey Lotus, any chance you'll edit your SIG to include Giants fans also?

I'll presume this is the statement you are talking about, correct?
" Since Franklin was or is not President in his time or this one his words are merely his opinion .....not fact ." If you read it I say his words .

When you take a quote from someone from over 200 years ago and try to make it serve your purpose no matter how different the circumstance is , yes it's opinion not fact.

Don't you believe in God? If you do, I think you'll find the irony in that statement.

Re: Pics For Sharing & Debating

I'm saying that the current Administration is uninstalling Democracy.

Where are you getting your implication from? It's a banner that was carried in Turkey during their recent anti-islam protests in Taksim Square.

And it will look a lot like this:

All this kerfuffle about data and surveillance, the IRS, Benghazi, any of the improper actions of DC, it ultimately doesn’t mean a thing. It is just dancing, waving the cape to distract the bull. We are very likely undergoing the process of a coup d'etat. It will not be a bloody coup - I've seen my share of those up close and personal - but there is also a phenomenon known as a bloodless coup. In a society as complex as the United States, this coup will be conducted not by soldiers and tanks rolling through the streets of the capital city, but rather by a series of policies, laws and regulations designed to constrain our freedom. Our behavior is coerced by the tax code, gun control measures, environmental policies that tell us what we can and cannot do with our own property, and ultimately Obamacare, which tells us what we can and cannot do with our own bodies.

When they want to implement the coup, first we’ll lose satellites - the Global Positioning Satellite constellation has the capability to be encrypted at the touch of a button. Only the government and military will have commo. Second we will lose electricity. Easy enough to do; the national grid is computer/satellite controlled. The masses will be in the dark literally and figuratively. Riots will ensue and effective resistance to Government control measures will be mitigated. The Powers That Be, all they have to do is sit back and wait, the populace will take itself down; after a period of time the Department of Homeland Security - think TSA, think ATF; think New Orleans after Katrina, think Waco - can walk into areas, restore order, eliminate any rebel opposition and turn the lights back on.

They can also accomplish most of this by collapsing the dollar.

I'd say you were dismally unaware, prat. Walk away while you still have a shred of dignity.

Oh, come on!

Ahem......I hope that the next time you urgently need to use the restroom a large and obstreperous spider has build a web over the stall door, blocking your passage.

I dislike Mondays and the off season.
