Lol.

July 2 - for living wills, saying we can save 33 billion dollars per year.
August 12 - against living wills, calling them death panels.
There you have it.

I already said I don't care about the actual topic. Some of you are doing some ASSuming about my political views and the radio or TV I watch. I could really give a rats butt what these three say. Besides, this part of the legislation is being hacked off anyhow. I'd say nobody cares now...

*L* You're the very embodiment of Plato's dialectic.

BTW, I could care less about the actual topic of this thread, I'm just saying the references are awful at best. Then again I have never understood how anyone could watch msnbc for more than two seconds without pulling out a gun and either offing themselves or shooting the TV. It's not even entertaining.
READ: The first blog I linked is George Stephanapolous's (sp?) commentary and video from his own show that he hosts on ABC, which is the topic of a portion of my OP. What would you suggest...that I show a non-ABC website's version of ABC's show, This Week?

The second blog I linked is Newt Gingrich's own Washington Post blog entry, within which is the exact quote my OP discusses. So according to your "logic" (<---using that term lightly), I should not reference Newt's own blog as a source for what he wrote in said blog, which is the purpose of my OP? Sure, that makes sense.

I don't even know why I'm bothering to explain this to you. You obviously don't know what you're talking about.

If you had stayed in school, you'd know that hiding an error where students least expect it is a useful and common pedagogical tool.

ooooooh, yes, that's the reason you hacked that up.. right

and the cowgirls lost their game today because it's only the preseason. It's ok to make mistakes. I made some and admitted it. It's really not that hard. go on, you know you want to try...

and speaking of football, let's analyze this..

Directions: Identify the errors in the following sentence and correct them.
the first error is the first word of the posting. And that's hiding? where is it hiding? it's the first freaking word... you can hide in plain site, but you still have to hide. You can't be the giant elephant in the flaming yellow tutu

I make them all the time. But I don't make mistakes with little ego-driven posters who think that they can grade other posters, especially when their own posts leave much to be desired and their critiques are without merit.

That's the point!!! The error is where a student would least expect it. You seriously never experienced such exercises in school? How strange.

ok, you win. You are SO much better than me and have done an outstanding job of proving it. I'm leaving the asylum now. My theory was right, it would do a great job of keeping me occupied on a boring night at work...
