    For a sec I thought they were talking about Michael Moore.


    If O'Keefe set up a website for donations I'd give him $10. The whining his videos produce from the left are worth it.

    Nope. We were talking about O'Keefe. It's easy to tell the difference, one is a typical right wing liar, and the other isn't.


    We'll see who's whining in 2012. Just wait, your beloved GOP has the grave already dug in anticipation for their funeral. The GOP has no chance of passing anything until at least 2016.

    I thought conservatives believed in individual responsibility...

    Oh please. Conservatives the world over believe other people should live within their means.

    Only when it's convenient for them. But when they want to vandalize federal buildings by writing "in god we trust" on all of them, they want the taxpayers to pay for their shenanigans. Or when they want to make stupid anti-government videos, for people who don't like debt, this O'Keefe character seems to have accrued plenty of it.

    He's part of that irresponsible "charge everything" crowd. Maybe he should get a job, but that's not the usual m.o. of flim-flammers.

    Certainly. He's not asking the government to give him taxpayer money. Everyone's free to ask or give money from and to whoever they choose. Asking for help and giving help does not mean someone is conservative or liberal. I think conservative and liberal refers to the role of government not the issues on which our major political parties side. But more importantly, I don't think "conservative" and "liberal" see to define the role of the individual. For example, just because I I'm not speaking of religious conservatives of course because they believe in a lot of control over our private lives.. Based on their belief in the role of government, they are very liberal.

    I prefer private giving because it's much more efficient in my opinion.

    If he had the budget, you think a CGI dinosaur would be barreling through as well?

    Can we not fatten the propagandists, but rather spend the money on real journalism instead?

    I have two student projects that are worth the $10 dollars.

    Yeah. James O'Keefe is like Michael Moore.

    ...Except that the latter carries his camera out in the open and confronts idiots with their own freely chosen actions, and the former does everything surreptitiously and tries to entrap organizations that are doing some good in the world.

    Other than that, no difference. ;)

    "doing some good in the world"? Like how to set up a underage brothel? Editing raw footage to the point of dishonesty simply to make a partisan point? Who does he think he is, Michael Moore?

    Hyper-partisan ad-hominem attacks and nothing in the way of substance.

    Shocking... :eek:
