You really need to keep up, sonny.
The original conversation had to do with me saying we invaded Afghanistan to get Bin Laden.
In jumped all you right whiners. Some claiming we invaded Afghanistan just because they allowed Bin Laden to be there implying that we would have invaded Afghanistan if Bin Laden was not there.
Then jumped in Dumbwaiter who claimed we invaded Afghanistan because it was Afghanistan that attacked us even though no hijacker was a Afghan citizen.
Then in jumped you, who claimed the the Taliban attacked us on 9-11.
I have news for you dumbasses.
Al Qaeda under the leadership of Bin Laden planned & launched the attacks of 9-11. It was not the Afghan government, the Afghan people, or the Taliban.
It was Al Qaeda.
It is said that Al Qaeda had camps right here in the US. Maybe we should have invaded ourselves.
Boy, you libtards go a long way to prove how dumb you are. what part of "Any terrorist group or THE GOVERNMENTS THAT SUPPORT THEM" don't you understand? Obviously all of it!!!

I can only hope they no longer want to keep handing him the spikes.
The economy has improved beyond what any of the expert analysts were predicting during Obama first year. Matter of fact you can go back to the earliest pages of this thread and get a feel for what was going on.

Obama: Nixon in Reverse

The most basic criticism of Obama turns out to be the truest. A one-term Senator doesn’t have much preparation for governing anything—yes, a risk that Republicans will have to keep in mind with Marco Rubio and Rand Paul—and government under Obama has often seems to be run by functionaries. It’s all too plausible that Obama didn’t know, or care to know, about the IRS applying discriminatory standards against right-leaning 501(c)(4) groups, and his attitude toward Eric Holder’s Justice Department grabbing Associated Press phone records appears similarly blasé.

This is rather unlike the disgraced president to whom many Republicans want to compare the incumbent. As Dana Milbank puts it:“Nixon was a control freak. Obama seems to be the opposite: He wants no control over the actions of his administration. As the president distances himself from the actions of ‘independent’ figures within his administration, he’s creating a power vacuum in which lower officials behave as though anything goes.” That’s not exculpatory: a president is responsible for the abuses of his administration whether he orders them directly or simply creates the conditions in which they can happen.

It’s doubtful, alas, that congressional Republicans will treat these matters as anything other than opportunities for Benghazi-style partisan hype. There are fundamental matters behind each of these scandals that the GOP establishment does not want to face any more than Obama does. Namely: exactly what the CIA was doing in Benghazi (and why the U.S. had to be so deeply involved in Libya in the first place), the tremendous discretion the IRS enjoys over whom it targets and how, and the extent to which the War on Terror is really a War on Transparency in government. Failure to strike these problems at their roots only reinforces the idea that the GOP’s leadership cares not a whit for the substance of the issues but only about embarrassing Obama. That may be enough to rally the base ahead of 2014, but there are many other Americans—not nearly enough, to be sure—who actually would like someone to stand up for consistent standards, not only for the IRS but to check and limit arbitrary executive power across the board.

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.

I know this blows up your 'Bush lied us unto Iraq nonsense' but yes we would have went into Afghanistan because of the training camps. Just like we went into Iraq because Saddam was funding terrorism. You see, "AND THE GOVERNMENTS THAT SUPPORT THEM".

It's much the same as an all girls' school or an all boys' school.

Nothing wrong with anyone wanting an exclusive college based on gender or race.

Everyone has a choice and there are plenty of schools to choose from.

The fact is with regards to illegal immigrants, if they were white the term probably wouldn't even exist, more likely they would be called refugees and/or welcomed into our country and wished the best of luck in improving their lot in life.
