        Mitch,

        Are you aware that Cluster is deleting any posts of mine which substantially refute the bullshit he’s peddling?

        Yes. See my response. You might have to scroll up or down though. And play nice 🙂

        You’re the girl. Why are you afraid to debate me?

        And since my posts seem to be taking here, here is the post you wouldn’t allow on the Reagan thread, bitch:

        Cluster,

        See, this is why I ask for sources: they prove you’re full of shit! I never disputed that incomes fell under Obama, I know they have, as they have in trend for over a decade (like, including before Obama took office). I dispute your claim that (quote) “average family incomes… have dropped by approximately $5,000/yr.”

        By your own source that you just provided, incomes have dropped $3,000 from 2008 to 20011, not PER YEAR as you claimed, and not by $5,000. And even that’s using a highly partisan measurement of beginning with incomes before the start of the great recession, before Obama even took office. So going with your source tracking this until the last quarter of 2011, that puts your claim off by $12,000.

        Don’t know where you come from, but that’s a lie in my book, sport. Thanks for the links!

        You’re the dumbest son of a bitch I have ever come across. I never said incomes have dropped by $5,000 PER YEAR. I said annual average household incomes have dropped by $5,000

        One more stupid comment from you and you are gone for good. Banned for life.

        But of course, if you delete my post and leave the one you posted just before it, it makes you seem like you had a good argument. Sadly, Cluster, you’ve just exposed yourself to everyone reading this what a pathetic liar and dip-shit you are.

        Cluster,

        I quoted you directly; I COPIED AND PASTED your quote from the “Admiral Noonan Doctrine” thread, 11/10, 6:58 am. Sheeesh!

        Waiting for your response, sport. Everyone wants to know what you meant when you said in the “Admiral Noonan Doctrine” thread, 11/10, 6:58 am “$5,000/yr”, since you’re now claiming it didn’t mean $5,000 PER YEAR. Or are you going to start deleting your own threads now?

        My patience is wearing thin with you. As I said, I have posted this information several times, and this was my latest statement, verbatim:

        average family incomes that have dropped by approximately $5,000/yr

        The “/yr” means annual. Average annual income down by $5,000. I can’t dumb that down any more than that.

        That’s not how it reads. If you wanted to say that you should have said “average annual family incomes…”. As you wrote it, “$5,000/yr.” translates to $5,000 PER YEAR. If you saw that on your insurance premiums (to be topical), you would think the same thing. Any other opinions on this?

        BTW, I respectively asked you for a source and clarification on this at the beginning; you stonewalled and that’s what led to this absurd mess.

        Finally, even if you’re claiming a decrease of $5,000 in average incomes since Obama took office, you’re STILL WRONG by a large margin according to your own sources. And I’ll once again point out that the drop in family income was an established trend well before Obama took office, so let’s try to not pretend that this is something unique and starting with the Obama administration.

      I took as many astronomy classes as I could in college and the expanse and magnitude of the universe never ceases to amaze me. It makes one feel pretty insignificant when all things are considered and it also strengthened my Faith. I just can’t for the life of me believe that this is all an accident.

        Unfortunately, I only got to take one astronomy class in college (turns out they were really popular with the potheads and thus filled up quickly), but I really liked it. And if there’s a planetarium nearby, I will go to it. I find this stuff so fascinating, not to mention amazing. It’s kind of mind-blowing how much things that are infinitesimally small look like things that are astronomically enormous and vice-versa.

        I hear ya. And the awe only increases when you trade your telescope for a microscope. That said, Intelligent Design theory is still inane. It’s like trying to clean the lens of your telescope or microscope with your thumb after you’ve tried to nail jello to a tree.

    Mitch,

    What gives? Do you have a voice on this blog or are you happy to see it turn into bfv?
