    that CT loses a great deal of credibility imo.

    It hurts them with me at least.

    YMMV.

      This all started with "what the Republicans did to language".

      in that diary "embraced" any theory. There were only speculations about suspicious circumstances.

      but how do you even talk about CIA abuses without CT since we're denied knowledge of the truth?  That's what is propagating most of the diaries on the NSA. We don't know.  Congress can't even tell us what they know.  Congress doesn't know plenty.   We don't even know if the President knows. And no one wants us to ever know any of it.

      "EMBRACING'  ..... You have used it in defense of your attitude and actions and diary.

      That word is your judgement of what is going on.  It is not descriptive of what is going on.  It is important that you realize that the use of the word reveals that you are not thinking logically here.  

      So, because I go into a diary you don't approve of, I am EMBRACING that diary?  Because I T&R it ( which I do for a whole list of reasons other than totally being in agreement with it,) I AM EMBRACING THE DIARY>

      That is a very charged, subjective, judgement of what people are doing.  You are guilty of attributing motivation to people's behavior when in fact you have utterly no knowledge of why they are there.

      Listen to yourself.  "Embracing"  

      embracing
      Variant of embrace

      transitive verb embraced, embracing

      to clasp in the arms, usually as an expression of affection or desire; hug
      to accept readily; avail oneself of: to embrace an opportunity
      to take up or adopt, esp. eagerly or seriously: to embrace a new profession
      to encircle; surround; enclose: an isle embraced by the sea
      to include; contain: biology embraces botany and zoology
      to take in mentally; perceive: his glance embraced the scene

      Judging everyone who goes into a diary that you think is CT, (yet as to this moment you have not produced any rational reasons why it is,) is labeling them in a stereotype.  And you cannot see past that stereotype.

      I went into the Hastings diary and I participated.  And I said that I did not know the truth of the matter, but that I would look at the facts presented.

      I DID NOT EMBRACE THE DIARY.  And reject any descriptor such as that being used about me.

      We Must DISARM THE NRA The next life you save may be ONE OF YOUR OWN!
