        People who a charge is leveled against typically don't think it's legit. But, hey, why not keep whining about Bush. It's a good try to distract from Obama's continued poor performance.

            No refutations I see, though burd is calmly discussing, unlike your troll friends. Not sure why you constantly carry water for them.

                I was referring to my take down of your argument, which you have not responded to presumably since it does not fit your narrative.

                  Weird thing about pumpkin pie. I hate the smell of pumpkins (don't ask, some deep-seated Halloween anxiety or something, I dunno either) and I have assiduously avoided pumpkin pie all these years because of it. But I just had pumpkin pie for the first time last year and I LOVE it! It doesn't taste anything like pumpkin smells at all. On the scent/taste dichotomy scale it has to be second only to vanilla extract.

                      You're simply claiming the charge has been disproven over and over again? Sorry, that's not a take down. That's just saying you disagree.

                      Again, you're better than to carry water for the trolls around here, even if they agree with your liberal leanings.

                        Because you've conveniently ignored his and my posts refuting your premise. And I know you saw mine even though I'm on ignore because someone else quoted it.

                        Two legitimate responses, but you're right. None have responded to you seriously.

                          You sound like this is a bad thing? I think it is a great thing. Israel needs to learn to stand by itself with the US holding it's hand all the time. And SA is just a bad country that is doing a horrible job of paying us lip service while really supporting hard line Islamics. (read: enemies of the US)

                                That's fair. There is no other way to engage with your statement because (1) it has so many hidden premises, and (2) it's not a logically-checkable statement.
