    Not one of Trump's lies has cost me more personally than the lie of Obamacare.


    Until that happens, your "lie count" is pointless

    So, how it affects you personally is the barometer of what a lying SOS Trump is? Good to know. Get back to us.

    I'm not the only person effected....I am one of millions who have been screwed by the lies that allowed for the most disastrous legislation passed in the history of this country.

    Him bragging about a phone call is absolutely meaningless. If this is what you're basing your displeasure over, then that's pathetic in comparison.

    a blatant lie that costs the American middle class billions of dollars......that means something


    regardless, the standard of personal effect is a standard of scruitany more fair and objective than party affiliation.

    At this point, it may be easier to keep track of the instances when Trump speaks the truth.

    Trump can get away with continuously lying because his base is uninformed and receives its "news" through a compartmentalized echo chamber. Trump's supporters are as skeptical of the Donald as the citizens of North Korea are of Kim.

    Amusing, but not surprising. That's apparently when Trump gets much of his 'information.' A little background on Moore:

    Ah, to be a part of the enlightened class. Does one need a masters in pretentiousness or does simply voting for Bernie get you into the club?

    I'm actually not a big fan of Bernie as a potential president. Of the potential Democratic nominees my choices are Biden and Amy Klobuchar. I also was think AOC is somewhat of an airhead although she was one of most effective Democrats to question Michael Cohen at the hearing on the Hill (probably the result of good staff work).

    Using just one example, the fact that a majority of Trump supporters believe that Obama was born in Kenya or that there isn't sufficient information to determine where he was born speaks for their ignorance considering that in 2008 the Director of the Hawaii Department of Health, a Republican appointed by Republican governor, confirmed that he was born in Hawaii. Whether or not they liked Obama if they were the least bit informed they would have accepted that he was a US citizen by birth.

    From 2017
    Poll shows 57 percent of Trump voters still think Obama was born in Kenya

    From 2008

    And maybe they were so gullible they believed a distorted account of a conversation.
    The statement was based on a telephone interview through a translator. Unlike you, I actually researched the issue. After she made the statement that he was born in Kenya the interviewer asked her to confirm her statement and she corrected herself saying that he was born in the US, not Kenya.

    First, I've never made my position clear one way or another.

    and I'm sure you have researched this fully

    Greenpeace Statement On Patrick Moore

    Patrick Moore Did Not Found Greenpeace
    Patrick Moore frequently portrays himself as a founder or co-founder of Greenpeace, and many news outlets have repeated this characterization. Although Mr. Moore played a significant role in Greenpeace Canada for several years, he did not found Greenpeace. Phil Cotes, Irving Stowe, and Jim Bohlen founded Greenpeace in 1970. Patrick Moore applied for a berth on the Phyllis Cormack in March, 1971 after the organization had already been in existence for a year. A copy of his application letter and Greenpeace’s response are available here (PDF).

    Patrick Moore is a Paid Spokesperson for the Nuclear Industry
    In April 2006, the Nuclear Energy Institute, the principal lobby for the nuclear industry, launched the Clean And Safe Energy Coalition and installed former Bush Administration EPA Administrator Christine Todd Whitman and Mr. Moore as its co-chairs. The Clean and Safe Energy Coalition was part of a public relations project spearheaded by the public relations giant Hill & Knowlton as part of its estimated $8 million contract with the nuclear industry.(1)

    Your previous post strongly suggesting that Obama may have been born in Kenya based on an inaccurate story regarding his paternal grandmother would strongly suggest that you haven't researched the issue. A 5-minute Google search would have revealed that the whole narrative was based on a very small excerpt from a telephone interview in which the interviewer followed up and Obama's grandmother corrected her statement. It's a case of believing what you want to believe and by the way the fact that the entire narrative that Obama was born in Kenya continued to receive support for 10 years after it was conclusively debunked by the most credible source, the Hawaii Director of Health, illustrates not only the ignorance of believers in the myth but the fact that they actually choose to remain ignorant.

    In 2019, 50 years ago we allegedly put a man on the moon and brought him back safely, but we can't dig up a simple feat like determining his place of origin? Never let a perfectly good lie get in the way of facts. My avatar will check with the manager just to confirm.
