"In February 2007, a VoteVets.org spokesman told the The Washington Post that the group had 20,000 members, including 1,000 veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan'."
Okay, let's do the math. If you have 20,000 of anything but only 1,000 of them are purple while the rest are pink, what percentage is purple?
Yes, the founder is a veteran of the war in Iraq but their major goal has nothing to do with veterans but by pushing the progressive agenda!
You're right. It is 5%. Kudos.

But, the fact remains that its founder is a veteran of Iraq, as is the actual president. It is a fact that this grouping is pro-military. One does not have to be anti-military to object to the Afghan and Iraqi wars, quite the opposite. The other 19,000 members can surely not be anti-military either and don't forget, if the Dems had started those wars, VoteVets would still have objected to them, and they'd be branded Republican sympathisers. In Vietnam, you will recall, the 1st war veterazn protesters were against LBJ and his democrats and thereafter against Nixon and his republicans (though Nixon had more, which is normal, the war was dragging on). Try to put a party badge on those vets

I never make things up. By far, most of what I say, I can prove. Now the fact that I am a retired U.S. Army CW4 who flew Hueys in Vietnam from Aug. 1970 until Aug. 1971, you will just have to take my word on it.
But try and find anyone who knows what I know about aviation in general, and Army Aviation in particular!
Oh, do you know what the British and Canadians called our A-36 Apaches during WWII?
You constantly make; things up, and when I ask for proof, you either do not respond or tell me to look it up myself. I don't do that. I don't state anything if I cannot back it up.

One, yes you know a bit more about helicopters, normal, you flew them, but no more on other aviation than I do. Canada never flew Apaches, as far as I know. The British, who hated it, called it the Apache MK 1, far as I know.

Student booted from class for saying ‘I don’t accept gays’ wins federal lawsuit – The Daily Caller –
A federal district court judge ruled last week that a Michigan high school teacher violated a student’s free speech rights when he kicked the student out of class for voicing disapproval for homosexuality.
The ruling was perhaps a hollow victory for the student, Daniel Glowacki, though, because the judge assessed damages of just a single, solitary dollar.
The incident giving rise to the lawsuit happened in 2010 on national Anti-Bullying Day at Howell High School in Howell, Michigan.
The teacher, Johnson (“Jay”) McDowell got into a heated argument with student Daniel Glowacki in an economics class after Glowacki said he objected to homosexuality because he is Catholic.
Judge Patrick Duggan ruled that the First Amendment protects Glowacki’s speech.
http://news.yahoo.com/student-booted-class-sa...
In a nation of 310 million, you report this miscellaneous trivial happening? You hint, or want to hint, though your msg is so obvious, that the liberal establishment applauds the teacher who censored the boy. As I asked earlier, where do you find this sensational small-item journalism? And what is your catch word to find it?

They are not really for our men and women. I remember when Carter was president and we were running out of toilet paper. And that is not a joke either. Ever see a thousand dollar roll of toilet paper. Well, that is what it cost us when a private sent a receipt for the TP he had to buy at the PX for the barracks. Back in 1980 a typical Congressional Inquiry cost $1,000!
Oh, and Obama is doing it to our men and women in uniform right now and I sure hope we did not have to send them off to war without the proper equipment again!
Oh, and how much did it cost to kill ONE Viet? Just ONE? And incidentally, why'd you kill them or try to? What did they ever do to you? Did they attack the US mainland or interests in any way for you to get involved over there? Domino effect? Did it ever occur?

Carter was president up until 1980, fully 33 years ago. He may hot have been to your liking , and that is fine, it's ok, as he was far from perfect, made mistakes, but he was a sincere religious man, honest as they come, clean-as-a-whistle administration, no scandals, no intrigue, domestic or foreign. He's 86, has devoted his last 30 years to the less fortunate. Leave him alone.

Sorry Rouge, you said ":“International law that refugees mus stop at the first country to pass through but it seldom works out that way.”

You made the claim and cannot back it up. Nowhere in the UNHCR convention and protocol is first country of asylum defined as "first country to pass through". I cannot point to a section with a non-definition. It ain't there. Duh!

According to the Refugee Convention "there are three situations in which a state may decline to protect a person because he or she can obtain protection elsewhere: where a person has more than one nationality, he will not satisfy the definition of refugee if “he has not availed himself of the protection of one of the countries of which he is a national”(Article 1A(2)); where a person has de facto nationality in another country the Convention “shall not apply”(Article 1E); and where a refugee acquires a new nationality and enjoys the protection of the country of new nationality the Convention “shall cease to apply”(Article 1C)." Michelle Foster, Responsibility Sharing or Shifting?“Safe” Third Countries and International Law. 25 Refuge 64 (2008). Citing James C. Hathaway, The Rights of Refuges under International Law (Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2005).

Sorry Rouge, you're FOS.

All that cutting and pasting...so little information.

Of coarse an APOLOGETICS website will try to claim Einstein.

Your god and the god Einstein spoke of are two very different things. Einsteins god was the elegant simplicity of the cosmos. You don't talk to him, there is no such thing as sin, and the thought of a personal relationship is laughable. To him god lived in mathematics and conceptual physics.

"God does not play dice" was a figure of speech.(He turned out to be wrong)

"The word god is for me nothing more than the expression and product of human weaknesses, the Bible a collection of honourable, but still primitive legends which are nevertheless pretty childish. No interpretation no matter how subtle can (for me) change this."

Letter to philosopher Eric Gutkind, January 3, 1954

Einstein actually made it very clear once and for all that any association between him and a religious god is simply...a lie.

Einstein continuously was quoted without source to be a "man of god" he did his best to put a stop to this.

"It was, of course, a LIE what you read about my religious convictions, a LIE which is being systematically repeated. I do not believe in a personal God and I have never denied this but have expressed it clearly. If something is in me which can be called religious then it is the unbounded admiration for the structure of the world so far as our science can reveal it."

- Albert Einstein,(1954), quoted in Albert Einstein: The Human Side
You Cut and paste lies according to the man himself.

Einsteins problem with the word atheist is the same one most atheist have. We don't have a word to describe our non-belief in Santa, or the Easter bunny...or the boogeyman.

Anti-theist better describes the state of mind.

Newton was a believer outwardly...he knew what happened to scientist that tore down the model that mythology laid out. He also invoked a "god of the gaps" filler for incomplete theories. What it boils down to is that Newton knew how close he would be to getting burned at the stake.

Once his real beliefs surfaced he was labeled a heretic.

http://www.isaac-newton.org/heretic.pdf

This is going to be difficult to describe to someone who doesn't have referance to hi-caliber mathematics.

Newton had created a mathematics that could explain how the solar system worked. Gravity...inertia...velocity for each object in the solar system.

It was not complete...for example... it didn't take into account the planets pulling on each other. And his answer was "God fixes it every once in a while."

What this meant was that Newton had reached as far as he could stretch. And in essence...gave up.(Enter God)

Sir Isaac Newton's work represents some of the greatest contributions to science ever made by an individual. Most notably, Newton derived the Law of Universal Gravitation, invented the branch of mathematics called Calculus, and performed experiments investigating the nature of light and color. He also was scholar of the Bible and devoted much time to its study.

Sir Isaac had an accomplished artisan fashion for him a small scale model of our solar system which was to be put in a room in Newton's home when completed. The assignment was finished and installed on a large table. The workman had done a very commendable job, simulating not only the various sizes of the planets and their relative proximities, but also so constructing the model that everything rotated and orbited when a crank was turned. It was an interesting, even fascinating work, as you can image, particularly to anyone schooled in the sciences.

A scientist friend of Newton's came by for a visit. Seeing the model, he was naturally intrigued, and proceeded to examine it with undisguised admiration for the high quality of the workmanship.

"Oh My! What an exquisite thing this is!" Newton's friend exclaimed. "Who made it?"

Paying little attention to him, Sir Isaac answered, "Nobody."

Stopping his inspection, the visitor turned and said, "Oh? Evidently you did not understand my question. I asked who made this?"

Newton, enjoying himself immensely no doubt, replied in a still more serious tone, "Nobody. What you see just happened to assume the form it now has."

"You must think I am a fool!" the visitor retorted heatedly, "Of course somebody made it, and he is a genius, and I would like to know who he is."

Newton then spoke to his friend in a polite yet firm way: "This thing is but a puny imitation of a much grander system whose laws you know, and I am not able to convince you that this mere toy is without a designer and maker; yet you profess to believe that the great original from which the design is taken has come into being without either designer or maker! Now tell me by what sort of reasoning do you reach such an incongruous conclusion?
