    Anyone else fall off their chair laughing when Eric Cantor called his bill the " Prevent Government Shutdown Bill" And these Tea Party people eat this shit up.

    Other mislabeling by the GOP: Patriot Act, Job Creation Bill,...well you get it...

    Is that the same as the "Job Creation Act" of 2010?

    I think putting money towards our infrastructure and tax cuts for the middle class are recovery and investment.

    Yeah...this is one of my pet peeves, too.

    But the reason this technique of misinformation is SO effective is because people are taught to think like TEAM players. and that then absolves them of the responsiblity to look into things too deeply.

    Bills that are titled such that they claim to be the exact opposite of what they will really do are one example. the CLEAN SKYS ACT of 2003 is the PERFECT example of that kind of LIE by title

    HEADLINES in the newspaper that mislead people who won't bother to read the actually news, only the headlines, are another technique of the propagandists, too.

    Details, folks...that where the devil lives.

    Obama must have liked the Patriot Act and it's rendition elements (fly suspect to another country to be tortured) since he renewed it.

    And you Liberal/Communist people eat that shit up!

    No, I don't agree with his decision but he did not renew all the provisions.
