    That’s old news. And it was Al Gore selling his stake that caused that cable channel to change from being “Current TV” to “Al Jazeera America”.

    I wouldn’t mind at all, though, if CBC were to resurrect it the way it originally was, as “Newsworld International”.

    If Qatar is funding Hamas, then every rocket fired from Gaza into Israel needs to be followed by one from Israel into Qatar. International law already supports this — any country that provides funds, arms, or sanctuary to a third party engaging in acts of war, is engaging in those acts itself.

    If the UN says Israel can’t do that, then it’s time to pull out of the UN and kick the UN out of the US.

    There’s a line to be drawn here. Saying that gays are sinners, as Phil Robertson did, that’s freedom of religion. Saying that they should be massacred is not, and justifies Nazi comparisons. Priefer should be fired, not just suspended for three games.

    Cops are sworn, and have a duty, to obey the laws whether on duty or not.

    Nice to see a cop for once seeing what it’s like for the guy on the other end of his gun.

    I can’t wait until a cop becomes the victim of a SWAT raid, and shoots back as so many people have understandably done.

    Exactly. Rightful people do not “protect” adults from their own choices.

    Use Firefox with the extension “RequestPolicy” — it blocks most of the junk.

    If the daughter is an adult, then her beau doesn’t need daddy’s permission. To heck with him.

    Terrorism still kills fewer people outside the Middle East than falling coconuts. Right now I say we should pull out of the entire region and let the various flavors of Moslems kill each other in droves. Maybe even sell all sides the bullets to do it with!

    The World Trade Center was built by people who thought the same way she does. Why else do you think the jihadists destroyed it?

    Multiculturalism is exactly what they hate.

    I don’t know how much more personal they’ll have to get before people like her figure out that fact.

    @SPOT_OF_TEA: Morsi represented the extremist version of Sharia, and he’s out. In Iraq it seems too early to tell.

    It isn’t the White House anymore, it’s the Animal House! “Road trip!”

    Is it just me, or does that guy look exactly like Al Franken?

    The “trail of tears” was not part of America’s war of independence, it (the Indian Removal Act) was illegally carried out by Andrew Jackson after the Supreme Court told him it was unconstitutional. The US ceased to be “a nation of laws and not of men” that day, and nothing was ever done to correct it. The Supreme Court needs to be given the power to remove a President who disobeys it.

    Under this administration that would mean all the good guys get expelled, while Obama kisses Iranian backside.

    Better to give him a free plane ride to Iran, and drop him there from 60,000 feet.

    The definition of terrorism is acts of war directed at civilian targets.

    Legitimate freedom fighters do not attack noncombatants, nor do they cause them to become targets by hiding among them. There is nothing the least bit noble about the “Palestinian” “cause”.

    And the so-called “Palestinians”, and their state sponsors, are the ones who don’t understand anything but violence.

    Enough is enough. It’s time for Israel and its allies to exterminate them.

    This case *does* need to be reopened to correct a severe injustice, but not the way she wants.

    The injustice is that an innocent man (Zimmerman), whom the police at the scene didn’t want to charge, got persecuted for political reasons, first by appointment of a special prosecutor, then through repeated harassment by badge thugs, and lost huge amounts of money, his home, job, and marriage as a result.

    The thugs who did this to him — and I include police, prosecutors, and the governor as well as Ms. Jeantel — need to be in prison AND be forced to restore everything he lost at their own expense. And the Martin parents, who produced a POS that needed to be killed, should have any remaining children taken away from them.

    @Adolph: You don’t even have to get married to get stuck for child support nowadays. The only protection is to always, always use a rubber, and take it with you when you go home.

    I can’t agree with that for anybody. Fair trial, *then* blow him away.

    It’s especially in cases like this that we have to fight the temptation to let law enforcement skip over due process. Because if they’re ever given that power, they’ll use it when THEY feel like it.

    And there are lots of rogues as bad as this guy on police forces. The job draws them like flies.
