GM, my TV commercial reference is in regard to those that believe that a commercial that Obama did in October 2008 right before the election was the official start of Daniel's 70th week. There are a handful of Doves that believe this. I'm sorry you took this as mocking as that was not my intent. I am honestly at a loss at how anybody can believe this to be true.
While I respectfully disagree with your interpretation of Daniel 9, as the traditional view makes more sense to me, I do appreciate your well thought out and written response.

"Re: AVG 3 ½ years?"
I don’t understand the TV commercial reference, but it has a mocking tone which is not your normal studious way. No twisting of the Daniel verses is necessary; in fact it makes more sense in context. It is unconventional, admittedly.
