I figured out of the 50 black colleges, there would be some who admitted whites and other ethnicities.
Aren't there any exclusively black colleges? Because I always thought there were.
It doesn't bother me. In fact, I think it's a good thing there are exclusively black colleges considering the history of discrimination in this country largely perpetrated by democrats.
That should be 'former' Democrats, as we know the South today is now mostly Republican.

Blaming all of our carbon pollution on just one man's carbon footprint is like calling someone who dropped a penny a spendthrift. America's dirty power plants spewed out in a single year millions of tons of greenhouse gasses that is more than Al Gore does and more than George W Bush ever dreamed of doing.

I have news, we were already bombing training camps. You know, those things you can drop from airplanes without actually invading. Or there are missiles.

I know Bush claimed all those that support terrorism are considered the same as the terrorists. So, in your thinking, Bush should have invaded Sudan, Algeria, Libya, Yemen, Syria, etc etc etc.

We invaded Afghanistan because that is where Bin Laden was.

You saying otherwise just proves how wacked out you are.

We didn't have to go into either of those shtholes Flacko but we did___actually racing into Afghanistan just weeks after 9/11.

There were also camps elsewhere.

And once again, while the idea to use airplanes as missiles and the fixation on the WTC preceded Mohammed Atta, 9/11 was his doing, he made it happen.

While it's true that he visited OBL in Afghanistan a time or two, he also visited others including Abu Nidal and Atta was in contact with the Moroccan embassy during the weeks leading up the 9/11.

BTW 15 of the hijackers were from Saudi Arabia, 2 were from the UAE, 1 was from Lebanon and Atta was an Egyptian who lived, studied and became radicalized in Hamburg Germany.

Another Tol-E-Bon apologist.
The Afghan government (the Tol-E-Bon) clearly knew of the terrorist training camps.
Like knowing that the Boston Muslim dogs were building bombs, without necessarily knowing when and where they would use them.
You Obamabots are making a mistake trying to defend the indefensible.
What is more important to you. Your Democrat Party or Obama?
Not an apologist. Answer the question -

Are you saying you have undeniable proof that the Afghan government knew about the attacks on 9/11?

But with Fox News and other rightwingers telling them that SS is going to be broke in a few years a lot of idiots are opting to collect early would my guess.
I lost my social security in a poker game. I still think you cheated by the way.

Is Obama hiding the truth of Benghazi?

Liberals say he is innocent and dud not orders a stand down cause he is Messiah perfect.

Conservatives know Bush was not perfect but did his best. Liberals still fall out when they hear Obama's teleprompter.

See how all Liberals are Welfare cases?

Except the one percent who paid $32,000 per plate to hear Obama lie off the teleprompter. Yes, they were Hollywood liberals!

I would have to deny any undeniable knowledge that suggested the Aghan gov't did not know what was not happening prior to 9/11. Sheesh, I thought that was simply common knowledge.

I can only hope they no longer want to keep handing him the spikes.
Yeah, right investing in America is the wrong 'track' even though we've been on that track since George Washington's Administration invested in building the Erie Canal and opened the American West to economic expansion; Thomas Jefferson bought a continent(Louisiana Purchase) from a corrupt , bankrupt,dictator Napolean ; Alexander Hamilton created the first centralized , corporate bank (forerunner of the Federal Reserve) and built a centralized , bureaucratic government with its own national army to control that bank; Lincoln Administration invested in building the Trans-Continental Railroad, FDR's Administration the TVA and the telecommunications network ,Eisenhower Administration the Interstate Highway System , Kennedy/Johnson the Space Agency and NOAA, But when a African-American President wants to invest in America's productive future you say its the 'wrong path'.

Ok I know you won't understand this BUT were the governments in Sudan, Algeria, Libya, Yemen, Syria etc, etc, etc, supporting terrorist? I might give you Syria. Are there terrorist in those countries? Yes. But is the government supporting them? You do see the difference don't you?
