Pelosi No FDR

First of all, she's not the president. Secondly, 100 hours is not 100 days. Thirdly, the economy is growing, unemployment is very low and we are not in the middle of the Great Depression. And additionally,...oh, never mind. The media is trying really really hard to make her seem like something of significance.

Just an observation.

The media is trying really really hard to make her seem like something of significance.

That's because, as Speaker of the House, she has the potential to make FDR's shredding of the Constitution look like a dog-ear.

This woman is truly dangerous, and the havoc she wreaks upon Americans is the fault of those very Americans for allowing her party into power.

Being the first woman to this post is of no significance? Methinks thou dost protest too much.

Methinks sexual equality was obtained some time ago, so now her sex isn't much of a deal. Her socialistic views concern me however.

Apparently, Ol BC, it is quite a big deal, else nothing would have been made of it. Perhaps it is not a big deal to you, but to a lot of people it is. Therefore, by virtue of people's making it a big deal, it is a big deal! There really is no other determining factor. Certainly not your singular interpretation of the events!

Oh, Beef, you're dwelling on others' perceptions. I remember the "is it really your shirt" discussion. Contradiction here?

In this instance, other people's perceptions are the only real determining factor. The sole measurement of the greatness of an event is how many people believe it to be so. There is no other measure of greatness. This has nothing to do with ownership of a shirt, though I could use the shirt as an example.

If I owned a shirt that I thought was great, this would be rather insignificant. However, if the mayor agreed, hung the shirt in city hall, and throngs of people came to see it, would this not be more significant? Here the sole determining factor of the greatness of my shirt is how many people believe it to be great.

The contradiction you are speaking of lies in the problem of belief itself, which is basically an illusion. However, since our world runs upon illusions, we generally have to pay attention to them!
