Which makes everything suspect...
In an honest presentation you give the full picture, but if you are trying to convince people of something not totally convincing then you leave out important points that may work against you.
There is a big dif between something judges agreed to and something judges agreed to and then others overturned. The effect on swaying a random persons perception is completely opposite.
Like I said, you value the process outcome too much and fail to consider the substance of the point that was made. It's very educational.
Any information can sway the weak-minded. Like I said, those who share you view of authority may only be convinced by this out of context presentation.
Just because the Fiscal Cliff was not enough...
GEITHNER SAYS U.S. WILL REACH STATUTORY DEBT LIMIT ON DEC. 31
GEITHNER: WILL USE `EXTRAORDINARY MEASURES' TO AVOID DEBT LIMIT
TREASURY: SPECIAL MEASURES TO MAKE $200 BLN ROOM UNDER LIMIT
GEITHNER: $200 BLN TO LAST TWO MONTHS IN `NORMAL CIRCUMSTANCES'
GEITHNER: TAX, SPENDING `UNCERTAINTY' MAKES DURATION NOT CLEAR
GEITHNER SAYS ALL MEASURES HAVE BEEN USED IN PRIOR IMPASSES
GEITHNER OUTLINES PLANS IN LETTER TO SENATE MAJORITY LEADER
So since America's dysfunctional congress failed to "rise above" the Fiscal Cliff, it at least succeeded to "rise above" the debt ceiling. One out of two is not too bad...
