Can I please ask for a site back that Only tells the truth
and brings back links. If it's just me I will go away but there was a time that I would not hesitate for a second to repeat what I read and or learned on du not anymore no way. If it's just me I will gladly go but if it's not I would like to hear from you.

16. This might be hard to understand, but this is a discussion board.
It's full of opinion and theories. That is what we do. It you want facts read a newspaper, or only click on links with news stories. (Even then, look out because some newspapers lie, as do some sites.)

However, I've never seen DU, as a site, lie about anything. I have the feeling you're pissed about something and you are being purposefully obtuse.

Silly rabbit.

now here people state things like they are facts. Don't do that if you don't know it to be a fact as best as you can prove. Like I can just say How can Barack be for missiles strikes on Pakistan just to come to find out he didn't authorize the attacks

writes? Perhaps LBN would be a good place to check since they need sources to post things there.

5. Well, it's always been this way here: You have to use your head and rational mind to
determine what sounds believable versus what sounds improbable. Then, if there is any doubt in your mind, you do private research on that which sounds improbable to determine whether or not it is "true."

"Joined in 2003, left "for good" about eight months ago, rejoined before our big win in Nov" doesn't equal joined in 2008. I thought perhaps you may have missed that part when criticizing someone for being "brand spanking new". Ironic on a thread asking for facts.

Not sure where you get the "mad" at you part, simply doing what you ask, telling the Truth.

the benefit of the doubt to explain him or herself. That's all. Believe me, I've jumped to conclusions way too quickly sometimes and regretted it severely.
