The 'source' thread has been concluded...sorry 'bout the outcome; I know it probably hurts, especially getting schooled by a dullard. Better luck next time; carry on as best as you can.


"We're just giving conclusions..."

BTW who's 'we'; do you speak for someone more than yourself...I think you self-destructed


"Puts . . . are those the same GAAPs that served Enron so well"
Poor Joanie, whiffin away.
GAAP would be Generally Accepted Accounting Principles.
Screw the little guy, hardly. I made the point that to better protect the public a 401 k is a much better device.


Awhile back the thread was on Producers and people were throwing out the good vibes and I noted your comment regarding Tina

"...Sorry, accolades but not from me.

Posted by: joanie | January 29, 2007 at 09:56 PM"

Forgot to ask. Why do you have it in for the Producer of the Dave Ross Show, Tina. She runs a good show.



For those who might be interested in 'sources'; read and weep!


" ...Poor Joanie, whiffin away. GAAP would be Generally Accepted Accounting Principles.

Though not the first on this blog to try to correct your ignorance, I will give it a another try:

GAAP + generally accepted accounting principles - plural - note: more than one.

Thus, Puts . . . are those the same GAAPs that served Enron so well?

Now thank me for helping you in your learnin'.

Duffman, you might want to find somebody a little smarter to emulate . . .


Duffman: I never look at sites posted by people not smart enough to link them.

But, I'm sure you're kicking an old horse again about Ritter's internet escapade. No, not honorable.

What does that have to do with being right on Iraq and his expertise on Iran?

Until you conservatives get your cocks out of the sex sites and your heads into more intellectual and informational sites, we will have people like Bush and Cheney running things.

Wonder what your conservative god thinks of your so-called sources?


Therefore, you are ingnoring the sources you so demanded...pretty close-minded. This 5(so-far)part series might just open your eyes; plenty of reading and 'sourced' to the max. Don't you get it; he 'flip-flopped' ...and reached conflicting conclusions. If you choose to ignore it, so be it.


hot link it duff . . . I always do


You're obviously more computer acclimated than I; I'm not sure how to do that or I would...dullard, remember.


Hey, I taught Steve just a week or so ago . . . when you have the opportunity to learn something, take it. :)

I'll look at it.


Would gladly welcome being schooled in that regard.


Duffman, I may read this but I'm having a problem with the first six paragraphs already.

(First of all . . . I can't figure who's talking when . . . it is a very poorly organized site!)

But, Israel seems to be saying that Ritter is agreeing that there are weapons in Iraq in his Congressionalal testimony in 1998 but he isn't saying that. He's simply saying his mission is to find weapons . . . That first cited testimony tells me nothing and I don't see its relevance to the column at all.

Sorry, can't read it all today but I'm not sold so far.


"Until you conservatives get your cocks out of the sex sites and your heads into more intellectual and informational sites, we will have people like Bush and Cheney running things."

Please don't paint me with that brush...as I can tell you I am definitely not of that ilk! [Might be more appropriate for your friend 'Ritter']


Would you not agree that it is indeed a 'source'.


go here and scroll down about a third of the way to the chart of tags. It is the second row. Under the column "code example" it tells how to do it.

When you try it out, the link should be black and if you click on it, it should take you to your link. If it does, use the back button to return to BW and post it.


The moon is made of green cheese. Believe it. I said it. Joanie said it.

She is a source.

Now, Duff, we'll never be hungry again.


Many thanks!


I am not disrespecting your source. I was questioning what he is trying to say.

His citation says that Ritter's mission was to find WMDs. But, his analysis seems to be saying that Ritter admitted that there were WMDs to find.

There's a difference. Just because his mission was to find them didn't mean they were there to find . . . so I am a bit confused right now.

What do you think Israel is asserting here?


Point taken, however if you read Israel's 5-part series in 'relative depth' - you might see that he has significant factual back up (i.e. Ritter's own words and actions).


BTW: not that it has anything to do with anything, but were you aware of Ritter's arrest record?


Yes, I referred to it above.

And regarding Ritter's own words. . . that's the problem. So far, I don't see where Ritter's words proved Israel's analysis. But, much more to read.

Have bookmarked it and will read it.

Leaving now . . . have a good day.
