    including the original STOCK Act, and those that were repealed, is in the diary, sourced with credible outlets.

    maybe you're so used to getting a biased "everything is okay!" narrative that you just aren't able to recognize the balance when it's there?

      these little meta wars that go back and forth here. Your ability to make judgements on what I may or may not be used to is interesting.

      •  i long for the day that these distortions with an (6+ / 0-)

        agenda are no longer tolerated on this site.

        this site has become no better than redstate at times with some of the rantings that go on around here of late, imho.

        disagreement on policy is one thing, deliberate distortion and bias is another.

        hu, i'm glad you stand on integrity and honesty - sorry you had to be the target of the snide, sad comment above.

        •  Let's review, shall we? (0+ / 0-)

          First, "high uintas" falsely claimed that I did not provide the information on '

          1) the provisions of the original STOCK Act

          2) the provisions that were repealed by this legislation

          (he only referred to "provisions of the bill", but i'll assume it was either or both)

          As anyone who has actually read the diary can see, I did provide that context-- for both the original bill and the bill repealing it.

          SO who exactly is providing the distortions and the agendas?

          What's the deliberate distortion and bias?

          I'll tell you where, it's with people like you who, hu, and others who have made false claims in response to this diary to attempt to discredit the content which is critical of people you may find inconvenient.

          It's really sad that clowns like this get to just blindly stumble around and issue distortions of quality content and then try and turn around and play victim when you're called out on your utter nonsense.

            You said

            i'm not going to waste space being unnecessarily even-handed in a "Third Way" manner by parroting administration talking points, when this story is being totally ignored in MSM and the glaring issues with it need to be discussed, not explained away by vague "national security concerns" while giving corrupt insiders a pass from public scrutiny.

            I think that the whole of it is worthy of posting, it's not necessarily a waste of time. The more info you give in this the better is where I stand. People can decide for themselves. Even handedness isn't such a bad thing if it's in the interest of knowledge.

            I did read your diary and it's clear what your slant on the news is. Others disagreed and pointed out what the nature of the hold on the data base was about. It's worth noting those disagreements with more than an accusation of administration talking points.
