Glenn Beck, Bill O'Reilly and his ilk are the 21st Century's "Lord Haw Haw".
This thread is a "weasel" thread... based on yet another media promoted LIE, (as has become so commonplace in recent years if not decades). It turns out that Joe Stack had NOTHING to do with the Tea Party movement, and was in fact a staunch Obama supporter. It's too easy for the MSM to assign the "terrorist" label to a group of people who are seen as "not conforming". Citing, and having knowledge of the Constitution is deemed by the FBI and Homeland Security to be a...
Considering the vile and despicable way this was done, its hardly surprising that its got people in the region pissed. Just imagine: Your family is forcibly uprooted from its home, or farm, its village, community, whatever, and to open prisons in the harsh desert environment of neighboring countries of Jordan and Lebanon?.... How would *you* like that, huh? What would *you* think? Ethnic cleansing never works for anyone in the longterm.Looking at the history of what's...
Its not the entire story, but Israel does possess an ace card, as a seemingly universal protection against even mild criticism, let alone any form of action: Emotional blackmail, using the Holocaust to induce a broad sense of guilt amongst the masses. (Some vocal members of the black community occasionally use a very watered down version of the same by invoking the days of slavery.... playing the race card... but its not even in the same league).Criticize Israel, and...
The Israelis, as we know, have a blank check to do whatever they hell they want, whenever they want, with impunity and immunity. Manufacturing weapons of mass destruction? check Flouting UN security council resolutions? check (some 70 times in the last few decades) Carrying out civilian massacres in neighboring territories (numerous checks) "Accessory before the fact" (at least) to the mass murder of 3000 people on 9/11/2001? check Dressing up as Arabs and setting...
Trumptman, since when did a few disgruntled folk represent the "entire left" as you infer? How come you see the world in hard monochrome with the contrast maxed out? You know, as in "every muslim wants to build a bomb", those who want moderate health care reform are "raving Marxists", and the token, bought, liberal (Olbermann) amongst the ranks of rightwing hardliners in the corporate media, gets you blowing fuses.... Wow!
An idle question...I am not stating an opinion either way: The US is at war against the Taliban. The US military today killed 12 civilians in an attack. This was apparently considered a "mistake", and the wrong target was hit. An act of terrorism? Yes or No? The Taliban, regardless of what one thinks of them, are in a war situation and thus are entitled to defend themselves... and presumably attack military targets belonging to their enemy. Consider the following...
Nonsense. If this new program had been authorized by the Bush Administration, you would have supported it 100%, no questions asked. Everything you have said in past threads infers such. I don't support this new paranoid bullbiscuits measure (pretending to be about 'national security') on the part of ObamaCorp any more than if it was by Bush, or whoever. It's another part of the gravy train of corporate welfare that is being played on by both past and current...
So, SDW, where do *you* stand on this issue.. and why? President Bush authorized warrantless-wiretapping, and I recall that you strongly supported that move in past commentary. So... why did you support it? ... was it because it was introduced by GWB, a Republican.. and ... knowing that you are a very fervent GOP supporter, anything that Bush did was the ticket? Or do you support it because (regardless of who authorized/authorizes it), you believe that such a strategy...
There are true skeptics, and pseudoskeptics. The following characteristics of real skeptics and pseudoskeptics are courtesy Prof. Marcello Truzzi (1935-2003), founder of a number of organizations devoted to skeptical inquiry, including CSICOP ( Committee for the Scientific Investigation of Claims of the Paranormal). Truzzi was skeptical of investigators and debunkers who determined the validity of a claim prior to investigation. He accused CSICOP of increasingly...
