    Additionally, he has taken many vacations. I recall recently that it was 30 vacations, although I’m not quite sure & could be mistaken. Even at 20 vacations — that’s 3 per year. Then there are his many golf outings & just the fact that his opulent lifestyle is like a continuous vacation.

    It well-known that he is lazy, misses many security briefings, does not work well with others, is really tyrannical & exhibits many other egregious acts. Of course the LMSM (Lame-stream media) does not report those items.

    I do not think that animosity can be rooted to 1,000 years ago. There are different people & governments. Heck, the U.S. has only existed for a 1/4 of that time.

    Russia was kind of reset in 1917, but for the worst. The USSR & the US were even temporary allies in WWII. Although, that was after the Soviet Union sided with Germany, but then was invaded by Hitler. After WWII, the US even extended a hand of friendship, including offering for them to be part of the Marshall Plan & sharing nuke tech. Even their foray into Vietnam & Korea was unnecessary, but they got a communist NK & eventually all of Vietnam.

    After WWII, the USSR closed up, retained control of most of Eastern Europe, spied on the US with many insiders (spies) in our gov, stole technology & other heinous things. Their claim throughout most of the Cold War was that it was defensive in nature, is bogus!

    True points.
    If I moved to another country, I would take it upon myself to learn their language, customs & such.

    Yep, if we cannot identify those whom want harm & death upon us, we cannot properly defend against & defeat the enemy — hardcore, radical Muslims.

    No real comment on the cowardice & self-censorhsip.

    For those wondering what those French words mean, I found the translation in another Blaze article:
    “Je suis Charlie, a phrase that became popular across the globe following the attacks, means “I am Charlie.” The other French phrase on the cover apparently means, “All is forgiven.””

    Although, I don’t quite understand what “I am ______” means, in any context.

    Question: What does “Charlie Hebdo” mean? To me, that just sounds like a first & last name such as “Johnny Appleton.”

    True. Go ahead & draw it — with stick figures — & post it on some webpage or on a new blog site (ie Wordpress). Your captions are the main point. Of course, do it anonymously & on a library computer.

    Of course same-gender marriage is changing the definition of marriage. Personally, I’m against redefining it, but hardly care. Repubs would succeed more if they hardly cared too.

    Based upon libertarian principles, government should stay out of marriage, except for enforcing contracts. Marriage really is a contract, but without many real terms, & the gov usually makes up many of the terms, such as wealth distribution for divorce, unless there is a prenup.

    I don’t get “Je suis Charlie” translated to “I am Charlie.” I broader terms, I don’t quite understand what “I am ______” means, in any context.

    Another question: What does “Charlie Hebdo” mean? To me, that just sounds like a first & last name such as “Johnny Appleton.”

    Anybody speak French? Please translate what the words on that cover image means.

    It really is strange why the BO Admin will not identify our enemy. That surely makes it harder to defend against & to defeat.

  • January 13, 2015 at 5:03pm

    It’s just a coincidence. Yeah, right!

  • January 13, 2015 at 5:02pm

    Yeah, they are a threat, just like those weirdos from Tahiti.

    On the map, one of the colors is stated as “less than 20,000 active soldiers.” When dealing with something countable, usually a plural ending in “s,” the word “fewer” should be used, rather than “less.”

    How much military equipment (tanks, planes, etc) does ISIS have?

    What is a “normal” city? There is a minimum population level, but I have not read enough to determine what that is. It’s probably 100,000+, maybe 300,000 or 500,000.

    Also, maybe only core cities — not suburbs. Although, a few metropolitan areas have several core cities. The SF Bay Area has three. Silicon Valley is only a portion of the 9-county metropolitan area; two other counties are not included, but are kinda part of the area.

    Most of the middle US (between the E & W coasts) still have “good” values for homes, including a mortgage being better than rent, on average, for those residing in the place for years.

  • January 13, 2015 at 5:35am

    A ” throw-away society” has to do with consumer products, at the retail level.
    Maintaining one’s home is different if one owns or rents, on many different facets. There is even more to that, which you still would not understand.

    BTW, instead of “replace,” you should have typed “replaced” (past tense), and instead of “whoever,” you should have typed “whomever” (the object, not the subject). I notice spelling & grammar mistakes in almost all posts, but only point that out when it’s egregious, & I’m already commenting on something else.

    In your last sentence, you are talking about two different things — owning (pride) & renting (non-worrying) — but conflate them.

    In the future, please think more before commenting. I cannot believe that I destroyed your comments with more words than you used.

    Try again, on whatever points you have?

    Who says paying property taxes means ownership?

    Who has claimed that renting does not include the owner’s obligation to pay property taxes?

    Who has advocated for no gov?

    You should really comprehend & understand the content that you are responding to, and should break up your wall of text into paragraphs. Low English composition skills, huh? You obviously do not work in business or other fields which require much writing/typing.

  • January 13, 2015 at 5:09am

    Are you kidding?
    A 50-year mortgage? That would end paying 3, 4, 5+ times the purchase price. Are you being sarcastic to prove that renting can be better/cheaper?
