    It’s a shame that the neocon crackhead version of the GOP that currently exists is so far away from ideals and policies of the last GOP president with a functioning human brain.

    I find the immigration debate between Dems and Repubs to be a fascinating one. One would think the roles would be reversed. More immigration = a larger pool of cheap labor. Big business heavily favors cheap labor so that those at the top can keep more of their money. Republicans are the party of big business. On the other hand, one would think that Democrats would oppose immigration in favor a smaller pool of cheap labor. A large pool of cheap labor would make it more difficult for the democrats to raise the minimum wage (which has been their goal for a long time).

    So this debate is truly a perplexing one to me, since it seems that, in reality, both parties would heavily favor the exact opposite stance that they are taking.

    Sorry Obozo, but it’s impossible to defame the character of someone who has none. Rush Limbaugh has made a career out of taking things out of context, fear-mongering, and outright lying about about anyone or anything to boost his own influence.

    Geek, I find that your response is the central thesis of conservative thought when it comes to war, and it perfectly sums up why war is and will continue to be a stumbling block for the far right for a long time to come.

    Your basic summation is this, “The reason we shouldn’t go to war is because we don’t kill/punish/hurt/deamonize those whom we go to war with bad enough.” Not, “What about the people who we’re killing, don’t their lives matter also? Especially the civilians?” Did it ever occur to you that many of those in the foreign lands with which the US has been occupying are merely doing what you or I would do if a foreign army were rolling through our streets? Namely, defending our lives and our families with our backs to our homes and our fronts towards the enemy?

    You cannot remove the moral component from all of this, even as much as you’d like to. Their lives matter too, even though you’d like to think of them as mere untermenschen. You should read up on that term, by the way. It was made famous by the Nazi’s whose views perfectly encapsulate your own. You see, the Nazis thought exactly the same way about the people whose lands they conquered. If you were non-German, you were basically sub-human to them. Just like the Nazis, you believe that the innocent civilians in these lands are just untermenschen whose lives don’t really matter. Quite a moral dilemma, isn’t it?

    I think the best option is to stop supporting their dictators, bombing/droning their innocents, and just flat out giving them reasons to hate us. Much cheaper and WAY more ethical according to Biblical standards. (Ever hear of the golden rule? Psst, here’s a little secret: it’s a commandment of Jesus, himself.)

    1.) He was in the house of representatives you moron.

    2.) There had never been a bigger defender of liberty and freedom than the man whom you are attempting to slander (and failing miserably at).

    THUMBS DOWN YOU TOOL!

    Thor, I suggest you read “War is a Racket” by Major General Smedley Butler. In his book, written in 1935, he described how American foreign policy directed primarily by American corporate interests was provoking Japan to an attack.

    This is one of his most infamous quotes from that book:
    “The Japanese, a proud people, of course will be pleased beyond expression to see the United States fleet so close to Nippon’s shores. Even as pleased as would be the residents of California were they to dimly discern through the morning mist, the Japanese fleet playing at war games off Los Angeles.”

    I found a foot note to Nab’ HIV statistics:

    It read, “Nab’s A $ $”.

    And your proof of this would be?

    Except that “precision bombing” never works, and is not even the goal of the US military. We knowingly kills “enemies” with the knowledge that civilians are nearby, and this has been our MO for sometime now. All this does is further radicalize the most radical elements of our “threats” and turns the populace their against us. This is why they hate us. Not because we eat apple pie, or allow our women to vote, or go out for beers after work. Because we oppress them, and know we do this to them.

    When will we learn?

    It’s time to refute this ridiculous propaganda pushed by the establishment and drop these sanctions. Neocons the nation-over have been butt-hurt ever since Iran kicked us out in 1979 because we installed one of the most brutal dictators in its history in 1953. All because we and Great Britain were afraid they might grow a pair and nationalize the AIOC and keep us from ripping them off and selling their oil at below market levels.

    The U.S. has been pissed off ever since they lost control of that situation and has beleaguered a nation that was never a threat to us to begin with. They are building up the propaganda and trying to convince the idiots around here that Iran actually has a nuclear capability (as if that were even a pretext for throwing us head first into another war) even though every indication points to the opposite, and Iran has no good reason to even have a nuke in the first place.

    I pray to God that no conservative wins another presidential election. If it means that another mindless war is prevented, then I hope no Republican ever gets elected to office again.

    Agent et al., making false accusations without proof is a good way to land yourself in a defamation lawsuit. Just ask Glenn Beck.

    Thumbs up to Nils, and I’ll be more than happy to explain to Gyro what the deal is with Prince.

    Simply put, Erik Prince is nothing more than a far-right religious nut-case born with a silver spoon in his mouth. In my experience, extreme religious whackos should never be given money or power. It just makes for a bad combination all around. Prince did not come into money on his own. He is not self-made. His father was the head of a large auto-parts manufacturing chain in Michigan. He was the rich kid who used the money from the sale of hid Dad’s company to start Blackwater which began as a tactical/survival training course in North Carolina.

    Prince is as far right as religious neocons come. He literally believes that he and his company are crusaders (like back during the dark ages) sent from God to fight a holy war in the middle east. He is an utter and complete sociopath with zero regard for human life. When he was brought in for questioning regarding the Nisour Square incident in 2007, his only defense was “this is war, innocents die”. Let me remind all of the idiots here that that response is neither moral nor Christian. The golden rule is a commandment of Christ himself, and I would challenge any moral busy-body here to refute that point. If someone came to your town and shot up a bunch of people in cold blood without provocation, would you accept the “war is hell” excuse?

    In short, Prince and those like him should be thrown in jail, and the key thrown away.

    Wow Jeff, you really have no clue how the real world actually is/works. This is Fox News/TheBlaze indoctrination at its best folks.

    Turkey has shown itself more than enough to be anti-ISIS/ISIL. They are strongly aligned with the pro-Shia government of Iraq as is Iran. I wouldn’t expect someone as dumb as you to actually understand the dynamics and differences between the shia muslims, sunni muslims, and kurds. You probably think Iran is in league with ISIS because, “they’re just a bunch of gol’l durn muslims, and they’re all terrorists! that’s what the hot blonde on the looky-box told me and I believe it!”

    The fact is that the best thing we can do as a country is to completely leave the situation in Iraq alone and pull out all the troops. ISIS is radical, but they’re surrounded by people who hate them: the iraqi government, the kurds, the Saudis, Iran, etc. Take your pick.

    I knew several Turkish air force students when I was a graduate aerospace engineer earning my masters degree. Most of them were secular and bright, upstanding, hard-working students who wanted to better themselves and their fellow man. The only people who actually believe your fear-mongering tactics are the few feeble-minded, crazy conservatives on this site, which isn’t a whole lot. You neocons need to accept the fact that you are now in the minority. War just isn’t popular anymore, sorry.

    Calls a news anchor “sociopathic” because she rightly made fun of a bunch of white trash idiots who were making themselves look stupid to the whole world.

    Has no problem with bombing innocent brown people in foreign countries who never did anything to him.

    You should change your name to “Scumbag NedNedson”.

    Slap, stop playing stupid. That’s Sarah Palin’s job. Bristol knowingly got drunk at a party she brought her OWN KID TO. This was pointed out by several witnesses, just listen to the audio. No one forced her or any of her idiot family members to get drunk (even though I’m pretty sure getting wasted with little kids present is pretty much in their DNA).

    The fact is that all of this paints Bristol and Sarah as BAD PARENTS. I’m just sayin’ is that it doesn’t look good is all.

  • October 23, 2014 at 2:13pm

    The Palin’s aren’t Christian. They merely exploit the Bible and Christianity as a foil to further their political views.

    Sooner or later, those like Sarah Palin and her ilk’s crass debasement of their belief system eventually rears it’s ugly head from time to time with examples as observed here.

  • [2] October 23, 2014 at 2:10pm

    What a bunch of white trash morons. Prayerfully, Sarah Palin will never see another elected office again.

    Honestly, what kind of mother and grandmother (Bristol and Sarah) take their five year old son/grandson (Bristol’s kid) to a party where the mother (Bristol) gets drunk and punches the guy who’s throwing the party???? Alaska should pass a law banning the Palin family from ever being able to obtain/consume alcohol (no one else, just specifically the Palins).

    I don’t think the Sarah or her white trash husband and kids would know what class is if it sucker punched them in the nose.

    foobared:

    Still with the strange fascination with fecal matter? You must have some sick desperation in your life. Or perhaps it was something traumatic that happened in your childhood? Maybe your dad abused you in some way, perhaps? Holding on to repressed memories is what’s driving your strange obsession with other people’s poop isn’t it? I suggest you seek psychiatric help for that…

  • [2] October 22, 2014 at 1:10pm

    Ok, since none of you idiots have bothered replying with a substantive argument or example, I’ll be happy to show you all the ignorance of your ways:

    Here’s the clear difference between a news organization that sensationalizes everything (screaming in all caps) and one that simply reports what’s happening:

    (From August 2, 2014)

    Fox (Faux) News: BREAKING NEWS: EBOLA PATIENT IN US

    CNN: Plane carrying American doctor with Ebola lands at Dobbins Air Reserve Base near Atlanta

    Anyone tell the difference?
