    Who is punishing the US here? Who is even apologizing? You folks are so deranged that you would attack Obama for anything, even for rightly recognizing the tragic loss of life from these bombings. Maybe it was the only choice, but that doesn’t make it any less tragic.

    As always, you are a lunatic.

    The things you list were horrible, but do you think it was the soldiers who committed these atrocities that died at Hiroshima and Nagasaki?

    Have some basic human decency.

    You mean, it was made up by Thomas Jefferson?

    Actually, he wrote it in Hebrew, so it wasn’t “kill” or “murder.”

    I see, what, a dozen people here? Most of these protesters appear to be adults. No upswell from students here. And this is national news?

    At least while he’s writing letters he’s not out wasting more taxpayer dollars on his political vendettas

    A “staff” infection? Where exactly have you been putting that “staff”?

  • [-11] May 7, 2016 at 10:48am

    Yes Gowdy, please spend more taxpayer dollars on the most expensive and most ineffective political hitjob in history.

    What a terrible country you want to live in, where people are jailed for not agreeing with your political views.

    What is it about fascism that you find so appealing?

    Griffin,
    If you pay your full-time employees so little that those employees need public assistance, that’s a problem with your business model. The government should not be subsidizing your cheap labor.

    Somehow I’m not seeing the “kindness” or the “generosity” in your statement.

    David Barton is a known fraud. His research is full of fallacies, inaccuracies, and willful misquotings. Truly, he disrespects the founders and their legacy to serve his own ends.

    Azghost,
    Your two Madison quotes are known fakes. The first is based on deceptive misquoting, and the second is an out-and-out fabrication. Your Patrick Henry quotes is also mistakenly attributed to Henry.
    In my mind, it’s incredibly disrespectful to willfully misuse and fake the words of the founding fathers.

    He is rewriting history. The Plymouth colony was not the first. Nor was the British army the largest and most powerful. The Constitution has nothing to do with Moses in the desert.

    How exactly does this make this version the “true” story?

    You clearly have no idea what science is about. Parading your ignorance about does you no credit.

    Complete garbage. Not only is your conspiracy theory completely nonsensical (so, LGBT folks devoted their lives to the priesthood knowing that the church would cover-up pedophilia for decades?), but you use it as an argument to discredit young women who have been sexually assaulted. It would be laughable if it wasn’t so harmful. The irony is that you deny the existence of rape culture while willfully perpetuating it.

    It boggles the mind that you would have the nerve to claim “honor” in any sense.

    NoOnUKnow,
    So, you agree with me. As you say, there are people who discriminate by color. We probably disagree about how pervasive this phenomena is, but that’s not the issue. Certainly many people face discrimination, but if your white, discrimination is not going to prevent you from getting work, or a loan, or renting an apartment, etc. That’s white privilege, plain and simple.

    Ben__Franklin,
    Poverty and discrimination keeps families down in decaying, crime-ridden neighborhoods that they (or their parents) were originally forced into by redlining and housing discrimination. These are all well-documented phenomena. I would suggest that you do some research, but I know that this real issue is your lack of empathy.

  • [-8] April 27, 2016 at 8:28pm

    NoOneUKnow,
    The point isn’t that being white makes your life easy. Not by a long shot. No doubt your grandfather went through quite a lot. Now, imagine if, during that same period, he was black. In that case, what was so difficult in those times might have very well been impossible. It’s safe to say that in most cases throughout the 20th century, “living up to your word and personal bond” was not enough to get a black person credit; not when the laws of the United States specifically discriminated against you.

    There are many, many people of color who worked just as hard if not harder than your grandfather, and were still kept down by discrimination. The legacy of that discrimination is still evident in the racial disparities we see today.

    No one is saying that work ethic isn’t important. The issue is that so many face extra challenges because of their race. Plain and simple. The concept of white privilege attempts to recognize that as a way of considering how might better “level the playing field,” so to speak.
