    Let’s be honest with ourselves for just a moment here. Yes, Chrs Kyle was extraordinarily good at killing people, BUT he also did so in an illegal, unconstitutional war. So that makes him the invader and the murderur. Also, we know that he lied about a lot of things in his personal memoir, American Sniper (there’s a reason Jesse Ventura sued him for defamation…AND WON). This makes Kyle a liar on top of things. Not exactly the picture of a Christian hero.

    LOL! “We bombed and killed a whole bunch of innocent people in WWII, so what’s the big deal?!?” When will you conservatards learn that the whole “two wrongs makes a right” argument is not a valid defense? Can you imagine the horror and disgust if Mexico bombed America and was achieving a civilian casualty rate of 80% and higher? Lol, the media wouldn’t be able to shut up about it. But whatever, it’s just a bunch of brown people, right? Yeah, screw those guys…

    Lol, if an 80% civilian casualty rate doesn’t qualify as apartheid, you’re probably either a sociopath or a conservative. Now that I think about it…is there any difference between the two?

    Ok good, so your auguing that Bush was/is just like Obama. How does that validate your argument again?

  • [1] January 11, 2015 at 2:21pm

    Hahahaha, more like “bankruptcy and selling out our liberties and freedoms for empire is coming to you!” Lol, quit with fearmongering. If anything America is less free today because you sat silently by while Bush robbed us of our liberty. But hey, anything to kill a few brown people, right?

    Let’s discuss this: did the French government’s actions in Mali and Libya motivate these attacks?

    Yes! How dare those journalists ACTUALLY do their job and show the apartheid that is really going on in Gaza and the West Bank by the satanic, Israeli government! They should be ashamed!

    George Washington would oppose most in the neoconservative/Republican Party and would most likely only identify with Ron Paul or Justin Amash. Washington was a non-interventionist and would probably be labeled an isolationist by the likes of Huckabee today.

    George Washington admired a humble foreign policy which prompted free trade with all and entangling alliances with none (just read his farewell address) Washington would have told the military to keep its mitts off Iran and would’ve flipped Israel the bird!

    A Cruz presidency would be far worse than a Bush presidency I fear. Thank God his chances of actually winning are fairly slim.

    Lol, I love it when neocons turn on their own.

    William F. Buckley Jr. was the very definition of neoconservatism: small on domestic socialism, big on empire. On many an occasion, Buckley had no qualms about admitting that he thought the U.S. should have an active role as the world’s policeman (look up his debates with Ron Paul). Why anyone would get upset for simply pointing out the man’s stated beliefs is beyond me.

    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?
