Boy you are a phoney. It was alright to steal in 1700s and 1800s but it is not alright to steal others lands today? Check out the history of mankind, people have been taking/occupying the lands of others for ever. A trend that will continue.
Do you ever think before you post the idiocy you post so often?

I never said it was alright, doofus. I merely stated the history of the US stealing land.

Difgference is, the UN was supposed to end that sort of crap after the nations of the world nearly destroyed themselves in WWII//

You're a sad excuse for a human, Ed. What with the lies about dead family members and all..........

You've got nothing useful to say, all you do is make dumb comments on what others say.

Feminists think MEN are wonderful, and we love our sons more than life itself.

Imbicile. The point I was making was that parents can(Which is really fully legal you twat) leave their kids to their TV's, but they can't, because it isn't suitable.

What Romney Didn't Say
Peggy Noonan: Have we noticed a certain lack of modesty in our political figures? Thank goodness... for Mitt Romney, who in a conference call with donors said he got beat and beat bad, that his campaign was lacking, that his gut on the big issues was probably off, that he shouldn't have allowed his campaign to become (in the grandiose, faux-macho lingo of campaign...) an air war and not a ground war, and that they were smoked in get-out-the-vote. He added, with an eye to concerns larger than his own, that he wanted to help the party analyze and define what didn't work in 2012 so it would be stronger in 2016.
Sorry. Kidding! He didn't say that. He said the administration gave "gifts" to interest groups, and the groups appreciated the gifts, and, people being the little automatons they are, said yes, sire, and voted for him.
In a way it was as bad as the old "47%" tape.
http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1000142412788...
What he DID say, over and over and over during his campaign, was that he planned to give lots of 'gifts' to those who share his tax bracket - such as a 20% tax cut, allowing (and possibly increasing) loopholes and deductions only they ever use, and packing the Supreme Court with corporatists.

Funny how no Republican Super Pac donor is happy with their purchased candidate...

The Astonishing Cravenness of the RSC

On Friday this blog broke the news of a paper being circulated by the Republican Study Committee, the Houseís conservative caucus. Authored by staffer Derek Khanna, it laid out the case for copyright reform in stark terms that seemed to mark an honest effort on the part of the party to at least consider the failings of the current system.

Within a day the paper was pulled from the Internet by the RSC and an apology was issued, claiming it was ďpublished without adequate review.Ē But the notion that the paper just showed up on the website of the Republican Study Committee without approval is absurd. Far more likely, as Mike Masnick points out, is that the RIAA and MPAA had a morning full of very stern phone calls to staffers and legislators, and the RSC folded.

Keep in mind that this is just a working document that didnít indicate any kind of formal change in policy from the GOP. Taking it down is tantamount to saying these ideas donít even deserve discussion.

Mr. Khanna has probably been instructed by his superiors to keep quiet about the incident. But he responded on a Reddit thread about the paper prior to it being taken down, providing some vital context:

I wrote this memo intending to start a much broader conversation, so I am the first to admit that it is a work in progress. It will take work to come to a sensible copyright system in this country, and I hope that putting this idea on the board will start a much longer conversation by recognizing that copyright is a goldilocks-like balance. And in answer to one persons post, patent reform is also absolutely vital ó real patent reform.

Ö

No one requested it. I just thought it was a good idea. I freely acknowledge that the ďsolutionsĒ are imperfect. In fact they werenít in an earlier version at all, but I thought it better to put some tangible ideas on the board as to what I actually meant. Itís one thing to talk about problems and another to start to identify solutions. And then even another battle to get it into legislative text.

The RSCís attempt to shut this all down appears to have failed; copies of the paper are now widely available. In several comment sections in stories about it, commenters wrote that such a policy shift would be reason enough to vote for the GOP, and that if the paper had signaled a change in policy the party would be on the right track to deserve to govern again. Even if thatís an exaggeration, this is an issue that young voters find increasingly important, and the RSCís unwillingness to even entertain discussion wonít look good to them.

On a broader level, a GOP thatís serious about Tim Carney-esque free-market populism would have to address IP reform, which nearly always works to the benefit of entrenched market interests to the detriment of new entrants. Jerry Brito has even gone so far as to make the comparison between copyright and Solyndra.

I couldn't possibly care less what shenanigans Israelis and Palestinians get up to over there, unless one of them decided to fire a nuclear weapon at us - in that case, we'd be perfectly justified in settling the 'Israel/Palestine' question definitively, and in kind. Otherwise, we should stay the hell up out of it.
Next.
Amen and amen, sister!!

It's the evangelicals like Carol looking to the Revelations for the end times, which their silly book says will happen in Israel.

Evangelicals have a death wish. That's fine, but they're not taking the rest of us with them.

They will be killed off quickly, once their true agenda is realized by most Americans.

not a word you said makes any sense, wingnut.

Do we have the right to inspect China's factories??

Russia's factories??

England's factories??

Gaza is not part of Israel, it is being held as a ghetto, much as the Germans did to the Jews.
Germany tried to solve the 'Jewish Problem', but the war ended too soon.

Some of us actually THINK otherwise. There's too many OTHER secular books, to back up what's recorded within.

Me personally, I'm terrified of another Ice Age. Doesn't sound like any fun.
Learn to build a fire, and locate a reliable source of firewood. Purchase it, if you can.

In case you hadn't noticed, it's WARMING globally, not cooling down. Currently, the Polar ice caps have begun to disappear at the rate of over 33%, just in the last decade. I'm thinking it's the transitional period you need to be terrified about.

Hint: We're in that transitional period now. If there is another ice age, you won't be around to see it.

How can not be a part of Israel, if the THUGS refuse to acknoweldge the existance of Israel?
And if it's not a part of the "non-existant in the thugs book of Ignorance" Israel, wth don't they just call it Palestine and join the REST of the already ENLIGHTENED, PEACEFUL, DEMOCRATIC processes surrounding them.

They're already getting their butts kicked.

Do you live on some unknown planet for the clueless in outer space or something?
