    I say, maybe the 9th Circuit court should be banned. Why not ban the celebration of other counties’ holidays? Especially if those celebrating it can’t display a little of the same level of acceptance they are demanding of us!

    I remember both the original hearings and the scene in the series about Apollo missions. Frank Borman’s answer to the question of how the crew of Apollo One died was probably the most insightful answer possible when questioning how technology fails. “It was a “failure of imagination”. It is the unasked question or the ill considered warning that always bites humanity in the a$$. That is the issue these men are missing. Are they asking all the questions of themselves and those that are doing the development that should be asked, and are they taking seriously any warnings of possible problems (you know the ones that might hinder the bottom line vs. the welfare of the populace.) that are brought to their attention. And the final issue is one that glances off someone else’s reference to Frankenstein. A question the “good” Doctor should have spent more serious thought on. Just because you can do something, doesn’t mean you should.

    I find that for the most part this is the first that were hearing about this on an appreciable scale quite telling. It tells me that they have sanitized enough to spin it in any way they choose. Like Sandy Hook, Benghazi, etc., they will obfuscate and outright invent the facts to suit the agenda.

    It is my understanding that the core of the “Palestinians” were essentially the equivalent of gypsies or Roma that were living in Jordan. The Jordanian King took the opportunity during the chaos during Israel’s creation and forced them into the occupied lands.

    It pretty well nailed me. Born in phoenix raised by parents from Mass. I always got teased for pronouncing aunt with the “ah” vowel sound.

    I might have been impressed if he had actually done it. Other than that its another load of hot air from my joke of a Senator.

    Yeah, but its dirty, sweaty, hard work that only makes money for people we hate; you know the people who will work with their hands, outside (shudder).

    Come on, it has to be that they just found out the real copy of Obummer’s birth certificate and his school transcripts are among the documents Snowden absconded with. They’ll do anything to hide that stuff. May be even “accidentally” nuke the place in Russia where he’s being hidden.

    Maybe his religious nature mirrors his political? He is simply a Muslim with a difference, like he is a Marxist with a difference.

    Yes, when are going to do what needs to be done! Arrest the parents of these little psychopaths, especially if the guns came from the family home.

    In defense of the CIA, it is just so damn easy to lie to IDIOTS!

    Doesn’t it bother anyone that somehow while he was supposed to be serving his district he was able to pick those particular stocks that averaged out at 147% return on investment?
    Do you think that his position as a member of Congress maybe had a little to do with it? And isn’t interesting though a bill has been passed to purportedly keep Congressman from insider trading with the information they acquire in the course of their duties was gutted before passing? How else are these “public servants making huge bank on under 200k a year salary?

    I thought the “mental disease” line came from that Micheal Savage guy. Now there is a “conservative” that scares the cr*p out of me while simultaneously boring me to death with his constant me, me, me, subject matter.

    No, the best Ranter of ALL time is Dennis Miller!!!! You may not always agree with his opinions, but there is no one better at verbalizing that opinion in a pithy, intelligent manner.

    Well there you go you solved your own problem! Dump that pile of plastic &*&^^ and by a real computer. Apple is the corporate equivalent of a Fascist State.

    Not likely. At best this was a snort, followed by a role over. It would be interesting to see if he (doesn’t get a new job on an American network) stays in the U.S. and finalizes his naturalization.

    As to the claim of Europeans stealing lands…Well that is true, but misleading. Simply put no culture is immune from that claim, not even the Indians you refer to. Throughout history one group has pushed out another from desirable lands. It has happened in Europe, Africa, and Asia, everywhere humans have lived. And until our modern era this was acceptable practice, to the victors go the spoils.
    You did get some things correct. The blacks that were brought here did contribute an amazing amount in the growth of our nation, and not just those that were enslaved, but the free blacks were equally important. As for slavery as a general topic. I don’t know of any civilization or society that did not, at one time or another, practice the regrettable institution of slavery in some form. And it is true that most did not carry it to the extreme of perpetual slavery that was the norm for those brought to the West from Africa. NONE OF THIS should be construed as an excuse for the actions of those involve, it is simply the true history of what happened. I also do not believe myself to be responsible for the actions of those that preceded me (and I doubt that you would truly feel responsible for a wrong your great, great, great, great, great grandfather had done to another). And even if you do, the money spent by this country on social programs aimed at assisting the black community since LBJ’s Great Society began, far exceeds any of the proposed reparations I have heard of.

    I don’t know who taught you that miserable excuse for History, but they should have their accreditation revoked. They myth of the new world being a peaceful “Eden” is just that… a myth. The area around Plymouth had been full of small villages, but was decimated prior to the Mayflower’s landing by inter-tribal warfare (many of the tribes were capture and enslaved by the victors). The first recorded involvement of a European in warfare on the East Coast was Samuel Champlain, who was coerced by the Algonquin’s to help them in their generations long war with the Iroquois (a war that saw the near total destruction of the Mohawk nation). And to this day no one knows what happen to the inhabitants of the fledgling colony of Roanoke. And contrary to your premise, there were no gangs of Europeans ranging across Africa enslaving the natives. It was other Africans capturing, force marching (many to their deaths) and selling them to Europeans on island colonies of the West Coast of Africa. The truth is also that only something like 6 out of a 100 enslaved Africans were ever brought to the shores of what is now the U.S. The rest were taken to the Caribbean or South America. Where their life expectancy numbered less than a handful of years less than a quarter of those brought to these shores. Continued….

    I don’t know who taught you that bunch of lies passing for History, but they should be fired. The new world was not a peaceful “Eden” and Europeans did not bring war to this continent. The area around Plymouth had been a thriving area, but inter-tribal war decimated the majority of the villages prior to the Pilgrims’ landing there. The first documented European involved in a war on this continent was Champlain, who was forced into participating in the beginnings of the Iroquois/Algonquian war that lasted over generations and decimated nations like the Mohawks. And by the way, there were no gangs of Europeans ranging across Africa “kidnapping” natives. Africans and Middle Easterners captured and forced marched them to the west coast of African sailed them to a number of Islands of the coast where they sold them to Europeans. Also, only something like 6% of all enslaved Africans were brought to the shores of what is now the U.S, Most went to the Islands or South America, where their life expectancy was on the order of less than half that of those who ended up here. You did get some things correct (or partially so) Blacks were in great part responsible for the remarkable growth of America. And not just those that were held in slavery. None of the facts above should be interpreted as an excuse for the practice of slavery. And I would posit that it may have been better for the U.S. if it had never happened, if we weren’t caught in that quandary of would
