so first its a lie.. then its a mistake?  you don't even know, do you?

Excuse me?

The word "mistake" can refer to a lie.  My story, nor my opinion, has not changed.

Brainwashing runs deep.

You are making a case for "proof" where there is none.  There are two possibilities that probably both have some merit.  Are you entirelly unable to see that?

so first its a lie.. then its a mistake?  you don't even know, do you?

so I say they have toxic cottage cheese. 

That could just be a nasty yeast infection.

or bad cellulite (sp?)

Let's say I'm a president and I am dead set on invading a country.  I want to trump up a reason to go to war.. so I say they have toxic cottage cheese.  If I went to all that trouble to lie, knowing that it would be exposed by my invasion, don't you think the average jr. high kid would at least be smart enough to .. I don't know.. plant fake cottage cheese to make it look like my reason was valid?

Bush may not be the brightest academic in the box, but the guy had street smarts enough to pull out two elections, surround himself with strong advisors, and pick a VP that is the best insurance against assasination in our history.  I think he could figure out that he needed to plant evidence to back his "lie".

Well, actually he did lie.  He is quoted as saying that there are WMD in Iraq, and then came back earlier this year and admitted there were none.  That counts as a lie in my mind...

So if you're on the phone with your mom on a Sunday night during the semester and you say you have to go to bed early to go to class the next day...and then come Monday morning, your roommate informs you that it's a holiday and that there are no classes, did you lie to your mom?

Of course you did!

Right they never acted upon it. One could argue they never did becasue they new that it was not as conclusive as Bush led us to beleive.

Let me rephrase. Clinton launched multiple strikes against Saddam. He did act b/c he believed, as the rest of his admin. did, that Saddam had or was actively pursuing WMD. He did wrestle with the idea of a Bush-style invasion. Following your logic, if Clinton didn't think the evidence was conclusive enough, then he 1) wouldn't have launched those strikes and more importantly 2) wouldn't have fully supported Bush's invasion in '03, both of which he did.

"Bush Lied".... Haven't you figured it out?  Its right there in the liberal talking point that the professors were all saying, so it must be true.  Go back to your hole and hide in your ignorance with all the other little people that dare to question the views of academia.  ;)

A good undergraduate education should provide law school candidates with strong critical techniques in order to sift through Fact, Opinion, Bull, Lies, and any hybridization thereof, in any context of information exchange.   That latter statement is more opinion than fact, but given the threshold of assent, it might be placed under the rubric of fact.

You must be basing this on the assumption that most undergraduate educations in this country actually provide something other than liberal brainwashing.

Unless you are seriously destitute.. Harvard really doesn't give money.

Know what though?  I'll take the t-shirts.  I got $25,000 at Quinnipiac (pretty darn close to a full ride I might add) but considering the fact that it's a Tier 4 I'd rather take the Rutgers t-shirts and go there (not that I'm planning on going to Rutgers, I was just making a point).

Mine were at two (maybe 3) of my top 4 choices.  One (maybe 2) of those are in the top 10.  I'll take the money and go buy a t-shirt.
