Wasn't one of the talking points of republicans to push the Iraq war agenda,"their children are born to die like Japanese kamikaze air serviceman (suicide bombers)?" Were y'all crying when Bush giving the fact he started the drone program, but when he wad killing women & children? Do you think they would cry for us if their army & extremist had the upper hand & were doing the same? Certain countries/factions claim to be allies, yet allow terrorist to hide amongst their civilian population. By law there ask guilty by association! Obama's approach is the right 1. Turn them over or face the Face the consequences. They7592 choose!
Hey dumbrowski, who's the frikking president? Is it Bush or Obamamama?

Do you even know what a recrimination is? Doubtful.

"Farewell, My Concubine" is a Chinese film with an all-Chinese cast directed by Chen Kaige that depicted the two main characters' lives in China from 1924, through the Japanese invasion until after Mao Tse-Tung's Cultural Revolution and ending in 1977.
"Camp 14: Total Control Zone" is a documentary by Marc Wiese weaving interviews with Shin Dong-hyuk who escaped from a North Korean labour camp when he was 20, a former camp guard and a member of the secret police with animated sequences depicting key moments in Shin's life.
History can be learned through many mediums. The characters in the Chinese film were fictional but the backdrop of history was accurate and educational.
The documentary of Shin Dong-hyuk was a factual documentary.
Both would open your eyes.
Movies are always accurate, right?

READ A BOOK.

You are officially not qualified to have a discussion with me. You don't even realize how stupid what you said actually is.

I have no time for you.

Maybe one of your tea party buddies will explain the difference to you - oh wait, they're all stupid, too!

Good luck. Try not to tie your shoelaces together, sparky.

"A deal backed by Mayor Dave Bing and Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder, a Republican, would grant the city the power to void contracts and slash costs but not provide state funding or loans to bail the city out of its financial problems.

Without city council agreement on that deal, Snyder can by law appoint an "emergency manager" who will assume the powers of the mayor and council to run day-to-day operations. He has until Thursday to take such action."

you see the words "by law" and the city council could have avoided the entire "takeover".

Nowhere other than Obamacare have I mentioned government takeovers, try to know wtf you're talking about. Fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go thru life, son. lol
Oh I just lump all of you idiots together. I'm not going to bother learning your names. I don't care which one of you said which stupid thing. Put it all together, and you're a bunch of frickin idiots.

But for the record, If Obamacare is a government takeover, then what is Detroit - an apocalypse?

You fake-ass, hypocritical idiot who is so dumb he can't even tell he's an idiot.

You're full of crap. You have policies of prejudicial convenience.

As usual, you don't respond to the post you quote. Why bother?
Where are your imaginary political agendas in schools other than Texas schoolbooks rewriting history?
How much time do you think is spent on sex ed and at the expense of what, do you imagine?(you don't know much, do you?)
Parental involvement is your problem. You don't need money for that. You need less delinquent parents.
You're right, we do get a pitiful return for our money. Look at all the dummies who graduate high school without understanding basic grammar and spelling, and end up posting here.
As usual you blather, insult, dissemble and deny, a typical Topic liberal who gets frustrated with the truth being presented to him.
A typical Topix liberal who can't defend the failed liberal policies of the last 40 years and today.

Pathetic.

Haha...you were arguing for "will of the people". You used those exact words. When shown how stupid your argument is you have a hissy fit. Too damn funny.

"Farewell, My Concubine", accurately depicts how Communism changes even loyal friends and spouses out of fear.
"Camp 14: Total Control Zone", a true story about Shin Dong-Huyk who was born inside a North Korean prison camp who only knew punishment, torture and abuse beyond imagination until he managed to escape at the age of 20.
I strongly advise some on here to watch these films. At least those who think Communism is "cool". There are plenty more films like them.
The know nothing libs will blame it all on American conservatives, their usual MO.

American libs couldn't care less about the suffering in places like N.Korea.

READ A BOOK.
Have read plenty in my lifetime. Have you?

You can learn as much about certain parts of history watching a foreign movie as reading a book.

Another good movie is Partition. Do you know anything about this part of Indian and Muslim history? I didn't until I saw the movie.

I find it enlightening to learn something new - even if it's entertaining at the same time.
