Once again, no discussion of the facts.
It is still nutty to believe that Obama's relatives were rich enough (They weren't. Obama's American grandfather was a furniture salesman and his grandmother was a low-level employee in a bank at the time, and his father came to Hawaii on a free flight) or stupid enough to send their pregnant daughter at huge expense and high risk (incidents of stillbirth were high at the time) to a foreign country (and the government of Kenya has said that it investigated and Obama certainly was not born there)-----when there were perfectly good hospitals in Honolulu, Hawaii.
Oh, and btw, John McCain and Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan and Huckabee and Santorum and Gingrich and Ann Coulter and the National Review all believe that Obama was born in Hawaii, as his birth certificate and the confirmation of the officials of both parties in Hawaii show.

Great news, that. Means any Cletus-like idiot can keep walking in to any gun shop and buy a 50-bullet magazine assault weapon. Oh, he'll have to wait up to 48 hours, poor bugger, t get his greasy LRS handsonit. But, hey, why wait? Go to a gun show, they are exempted. No waiting. And better news, even, Cletus can buy 1, 2, 10- assault rifles and 10,000 bullets, like Rogue. No questions asked. 12,000 gun deaths predicted for 2013. But, hey, as LRS says, it's societal, yes, societal. Not like other countrieswhere gun deaths are 6 to 100 times fewer. Societal. Now what primary school, what theatre, what workplace, will not rejoice when they see Cletus a'comin' with his arsenal. Oh,he'll have pistols too, pistols that Rogue can describe in detail. Pistols are used mostly to "finish off" those stubborn 5-yr-olds and their teachers who won't die right away from the burning bullets of the assault guns.
More good news. Some states are offered taxpayer-funded health care, with many of these people , well, 55 million of them, with no coverage. State opts out, damn it, "ain't nobody in in Washington's gonna force us to accept available health care for our folks, we is independent gosh darn it". And what's amazing is birther/tea partyers of the LRS-Rogue types cheer on.
Pitchin' a fit, I see. Very amusing. Obumbler's Healthcare Act is falling apart. How are those exchanges going, you know, the ones the Feds must set up? ala pukeface...hee hee hee

How many dead today in Bagdad on the anniversary of the US invasion? Who pulled that off? Why, Al Qaeda! And was Al Qaeda, was the Taliban in Iraq when Saddam was ruling? Er. No. Were there Iranians in Bagdad when Saddam was ruling? Er. No. Are there Al Qaeda and Taliban and Iranians in Bagdad today? Er, yes. Which country was given the biggest oil exploration and exploitation deal in Iraq since the US invasion? Er. Russia. Did the Iraqi, the wrold's 3rd biggest oil exporter in the world, sell its oil at reduced prices to the US to thank them for their "help"? Er. No. Is Iraq airways negotiating with both Boeing AND Airbus to re-equip its fleet? Er. Yes.
Much progress, LRS. Keep up the good work, GWB.
Hummmmm, ya know if we had never revolted against King George, we would still be slaves to England. You do know, there are things worse than death You seem unset that Saddamn Hussein is dead?
Over all, the Iraqis are far better off than they were ten years ago.
Oh, and yes, what is that little story about Rumsfeld hugging Saddam just prior to invading Iran? You do know that prior to WWII we were enemies with the Soviet Union and that after WWII we were enemies with the Soviet Union. But DURING WWII we were buddies. Do you know why?

No, we should just do what Alabama did. If a company hires an "undocumented worker", revoke their business licence. Have you looked at Alabama's unemployment rate since they enacted that law? And do you know who benefited the most? Poor people!!!

Yep, two years ago Alabama's unemployment rate was 1% above the national average and now it is 1% BELOW the national average. I wonder what they did to cause that? And I wonder if it will work in the other 49 states?

What I have not been able to find out about Alabama's unemployment rate is the black unemployment rate. Now this is probably just a guess but I would think that the black unemployment rate has improved even more that the white's in the states because blacks are proportionally poorer than white and it is the poor people (you Liberals do like poor people, don't cha?) the most!!!

The above is by far the dumbest political analysis I've ever ever encountered in my life. Yes, they were better off with Saddam . He was a tyrant and a killer, but a tyrant and killer we knew and could deal with. Never in his whole life, had he lived 100 years, could Saddam have killed as half as many people as have been killed since 2003. Oh,you're Catholic, right? Ask the Iraqi Catholics and protestants how they are faring since Saddam was taken out. 90% have left, the other 10% are hiding, cowering, persecuted. There was a Jewish community before 2003. Gone. There were nuns. Gone. No AlQaeda, no Taliban, no Iranians prior to 2003 in Iraq. Well, gee, thank you GWB, They are there now, killing Iraqis. Again today.

You don't like dictatorships and non-respect of human rights, Rogue? When GWB ran out of WMD excuses for his dumb Iraq invasion, he started to mouth off about tyranny and lack of human rights in Iraq. So, he invaded. Well, Rogue, based on that criterion, when do you plan to invade Saudi Arabia, Iran, Kuwait, Libya, The Sudan, Syria, Pakistan, N. Korea, Sri Lanka, and, oh , the big guys, Russia, and most of all China, where freedom, democracy and human rights shine bright, right?, unlike pre-2003 Iraq, no sirree.

To: George W. Bush and Dick Cheney
From: Tomas Young

I write this letter on the 10th anniversary of the Iraq War on behalf of my fellow Iraq War veterans. I write this letter on behalf of the 4,488 soldiers and Marines who died in Iraq. I write this letter on behalf of the hundreds of thousands of veterans who have been wounded and on behalf of those whose wounds, physical and psychological, have destroyed their lives. I am one of those gravely wounded. I was paralyzed in an insurgent ambush in 2004 in Sadr City. My life is coming to an end. I am living under hospice care.

I write this letter on behalf of husbands and wives who have lost spouses, on behalf of children who have lost a parent, on behalf of the fathers and mothers who have lost sons and daughters and on behalf of those who care for the many thousands of my fellow veterans who have brain injuries. I write this letter on behalf of those veterans whose trauma and self-revulsion for what they have witnessed, endured and done in Iraq have led to suicide and on behalf of the active-duty soldiers and Marines who commit, on average, a suicide a day. I write this letter on behalf of the some 1 million Iraqi dead and on behalf of the countless Iraqi wounded. I write this letter on behalf of us all—the human detritus your war has left behind, those who will spend their lives in unending pain and grief.

I write this letter, my last letter, to you, Mr. Bush and Mr. Cheney. I write not because I think you grasp the terrible human and moral consequences of your lies, manipulation and thirst for wealth and power. I write this letter because, before my own death, I want to make it clear that I, and hundreds of thousands of my fellow veterans, along with millions of my fellow citizens, along with hundreds of millions more in Iraq and the Middle East, know fully who you are and what you have done. You may evade justice but in our eyes you are each guilty of egregious war crimes, of plunder and, finally, of murder, including the murder of thousands of young Americans—my fellow veterans—whose future you stole.

Your positions of authority, your millions of dollars of personal wealth, your public relations consultants, your privilege and your power cannot mask the hollowness of your character. You sent us to fight and die in Iraq after you, Mr. Cheney, dodged the draft in Vietnam, and you, Mr. Bush, went AWOL from your National Guard unit. Your cowardice and selfishness were established decades ago. You were not willing to risk yourselves for our nation but you sent hundreds of thousands of young men and women to be sacrificed in a senseless war with no more thought than it takes to put out the garbage.

I joined the Army two days after the 9/11 attacks. I joined the Army because our country had been attacked. I wanted to strike back at those who had killed some 3,000 of my fellow citizens. I did not join the Army to go to Iraq, a country that had no part in the September 2001 attacks and did not pose a threat to its neighbors, much less to the United States. I did not join the Army to “liberate” Iraqis or to shut down mythical weapons-of-mass-destruction facilities or to implant what you cynically called “democracy” in Baghdad and the Middle East. I did not join the Army to rebuild Iraq, which at the time you told us could be paid for by Iraq’s oil revenues. Instead, this war has cost the United States over $3 trillion. I especially did not join the Army to carry out pre-emptive war. Pre-emptive war is illegal under international law. And as a soldier in Iraq I was, I now know, abetting your idiocy and your crimes. The Iraq War is the largest strategic blunder in U.S. history. It obliterated the balance of power in the Middle East. It installed a corrupt and brutal pro-Iranian government in Baghdad, one cemented in power through the use of torture, death squads and terror. And it has left Iran as the dominant force in the region. On every level—moral, strategic, military and economic—Iraq was a failure. And it was you, Mr. Bush and Mr. Cheney, who started this war. It is you who should pay the consequences.

I would not be writing this letter if I had been wounded fighting in Afghanistan against those forces that carried out the attacks of 9/11. Had I been wounded there I would still be miserable because of my physical deterioration and imminent death, but I would at least have the comfort of knowing that my injuries were a consequence of my own decision to defend the country I love. I would not have to lie in my bed, my body filled with painkillers, my life ebbing away, and deal with the fact that hundreds of thousands of human beings, including children, including myself, were sacrificed by you for little more than the greed of oil companies, for your alliance with the oil sheiks in Saudi Arabia, and your insane visions of empire.

I have, like many other disabled veterans, suffered from the inadequate and often inept care provided by the Veterans Administration. I have, like many other disabled veterans, come to realize that our mental and physical wounds are of no interest to you, perhaps of no interest to any politician. We were used. We were betrayed. And we have been abandoned. You, Mr. Bush, make much pretense of being a Christian. But isn’t lying a sin? Isn’t murder a sin? Aren’t theft and selfish ambition sins? I am not a Christian. But I believe in the Christian ideal. I believe that what you do to the least of your brothers you finally do to yourself, to your own soul.

My day of reckoning is upon me. Yours will come. I hope you will be put on trial. But mostly I hope, for your sakes, that you find the moral courage to face what you have done to me and to many, many others who deserved to live. I hope that before your time on earth ends, as mine is now ending, you will find the strength of character to stand before the American public and the world, and in particular the Iraqi people, and beg for forgiveness.

Now poor old Jacques thinks we Americans MURDERED 1.25 million Vietnamese. How sad!!!!

Perhaps of all countries, democide in Vietnam and by Vietnamese is most difficult to unravel and assess. It is mixed in with six wars spanning 43 years (the Indochina War, Vietnam War, Cambodian War, subsequent guerrilla war in Cambodia, guerrilla war in Laos, and Sino-Vietnamese War), one of them involving the United States; a near twenty-one year formal division of the country into two sovereign North and South parts; the full communization of the North; occupation of neighboring countries by both North and South; defeat, absorption, and communization of the South; and the massive flight by sea of Vietnamese. As best as I can determine, through all this close to 3,800,000 Vietnamese lost their lives from political violence, or near one out of every ten men, women, and children.1 Of these, about 1,250,000, or near a third of those killed, were murdered.
