  •  So you are going to pull polls (0+ / 0-)

    from after the entire debate had ended, and the President and Senate had already dropped the entire issue...(and don't tell me it was possible to add it in conference, you and I know better.  They were just praying to pass anything that point).

    I can't help but laugh.  Do you really think we as commenters are that dense?  

    smh

    If you are going to spend an hour trying to prove me wrong, at least find polls in the time frame where the issue was being debated.  I know it was hard work.

    You could still just admit that you made a mistake and call it a day.

    And I didn't question your credentials in the above comment.  I have no idea, nor do I care what your parents did for a living.  I haven't mentioned my occupation, my parents, or my next door neighbors.  Who cares?  What is at issue is what you are doing right now, with an extremely loud voice.  

    I simply ask, instead of attacking me and fishing for polls (which you could not do without pulling late polls and even then declaring some as outliers), why not spend some time making the case for unions.  Making the case for EFCA.  Making the case for middle class workers and why cutting their pay/benefits package is not only counter-productive, but immoral.

    You have the choice with your stories.  The choices you make, and the framing you use, speak about you and your values. Not your parents.  And you parents voice or beliefs don't speak for you.

    Save the logical fallacies and debate tricks for others.  I respect you and your views.  But I become disappointed when you decide to attack a comment, without basis, and then simply can't find it in yourself to say "I was wrong".  You are better than that.
