    For Firefox you can get Flashblock. It stops Firefox from loading any flash videos and replaces them with an icon. If you want to watch something, even an ad, you have to click the icon. The result is the site is now watchable and stable. Sad it got to this, but I love the site, but hate all the code crashing down on me, especially if you open stories as tabs like I do.

    Is it really a wise life move to piss off a bunch of fellow snipers?

    Every time I see one of those “Coexist” bumper stickers, I think of that kids song: “One of these things is not like the other.”

    Why do we pretend that there is not a religion out there that has a radical element that wants to kill everybody from every other religion, and even most of their own. Evil.

    What concerns me more is the “Natural” Vanilla flavor, which comes from a Beaver’s butt as compared to a vanilla bean.

    Did not read the exact text of Kerry’s truce proposal, but I suspect it included the Jews getting killed and the Palestinians taking over what had been Israel. Pretty standard text, handed to him by the Mullah in Chief.

    Yea, striking out at the government is like starting a war with your own rectum. It may really stink, but you only end up hurting yourself! (as in, we pay for it anyway with taxes.)

    It’s been said before, the government should not have been involved with marriage in the first place! The only thing the government should do is issue a partnership/union license. The “marriage” part should be up to the churches and the people.

    It’s basically just a CFL. Only difference is that is uses RFI induction to light the gas in the bulb as compared to a low pressure arc like a CFL. Same poison crap inside.

    Maybe someday Obama may suffer the same fate. Didn’t that happen when the overthrew Mussolini ?

    Why would you have your finger on the trigger while exchanging hands? Once the immediate threat is over, your finger should be off the trigger.

    Condition: Clueless Progressive Liberal.
    It’s a horrible disorder that leaves its victims totally disconnected from the reality around them.

    Does the Left understand there was NEVER a country called Palestine? The Palestinians were a nomadic people wandering in the areas we call Syria, Jordan, Lebanon, Egypt, and even Israel. The Jews have been on that land for 3800 years, 3000 years before the birth of Islam. By any analysis, the “occupiers” are the Palestinians as they are occupying areas of Israel.

    Skunkbear, there was an extensive investigation. I was angry when it happened, but as the facts unfolded, I saw what happened. Briefly; Our ship has been 12 miles of the cost and identified as US (green) to the Israelis by a fly-by. We ordered it to move to 20 miles, then later to 100 miles. For some reason, the second command was not executed. Israel saw a ship at 20 miles and marked it red as our ship was suppose to be at 100. Israel failed to identify our ship at 20 miles. A second ship opened fire on Israel, with our ship still marked as red, they fired on it, mistaking it for the ship that had fired on them. It was a dark day between the two countries. The US was neutral in this war, but was covertly sending supplies to the Israelis. Does not make any sense they would bite the hand, so to speak. There are strong emotions to this day, but in war, fatal mistakes are made.

    Regarding the USS Liberty, I remember that. Failed communications on the part of both countries led to that FF. There was no intent. It would serve no purpose. They were being attacked and mis-identified the attacker. The ship was not in the location it had been ordered to. Israel admitted fault, and paid reparations. Does that bring our guys back? No. But, in a hot war with old technology, friendly fire does happen. To call it “intentional” is simply false.

    Did they declare war on us while I was asleep? 50 Cal fire on our boarder agents, last week a chopper crossed the boarder and fired on our guys. WTF? Anybody who’s planning a trip across the boarder should have their head examined! Go to Chipolte’s and have a burrito instead! I take that back, they don’t want us.

    No need to worry, Obama’s idea of military aid is to send happy meals. He’s ball-less in all directions.

  • [2] July 19, 2014 at 6:03pm

    The symbolism fits very well with the relationship that exists between Obama and the Israelis. Wonder what a suicide donkey gets in the afterlife?

    Don’t forget TWA flight 800 off Long Island. Oh… that’s right, we didn’t do that. Please ignore.

    Exactly! Note- in almost every photo above, the description includes “illegal immigrants.” They are that, but they are also kids. Kids who have become pawns in a game they don’t understand. Yes, they need to go back. But yes, we should be kind and compassionate to them while they are here. We can’t take it out on the kids. It is the elitist crud in DC who is to blame, along with the gullible parents who sent the kids up here under the idea they could stay. Of course, maybe we are the gullible ones for believing they won’t stay… In any case, the kids are just caught in the middle. Maybe, like the “Tiger and the Thorn”, someday, they will remember who were the ones that were compassionate.

    Mixed feelings. He’s right about the big countries always meddling in the conflicts, but Putin has blood on his hands on this one. Yea, wait for the investigation, always want proof, but the crime scene has been overrun by locals just like Benghazi. There may no longer be solid evidence there. Plenty of video and audio that tell the story.
