Would you like some cheese to go with your incessant WHINING??
I enjoy your selective outrage. Funny you never comment on the foul language used by Fenris, Ed, Shining.
Bit of a double standard here, I see.
Note I didn't use a single foul word in my reply to Lorac. I merely took her comment to Homer and turned it back on her. You just have a perverted mind.
It shut her up for awhile, too.
Continue your whining, little miss.
What you did was describe a sexual act in derogatory terms. You are too dumb to use innuendos and word plays.

Carol says she doesn't read your posts so NO harm done. I think most here don't and just go straight to the point and tell you that you are moron.

But you sure did run, girl. Was it your dumb ass that has gotten several recent posts removed?
Yeah

Yes. I was one of the people you spit on and called "baby killers".
No. I'm a farmer when I'm not at work drilling oil wells.
You never answered the question I asked. You pretend to have military service experience. Were you one of the frauds pretending to be Vietnam veterans in the so-called Vietnam Veterans Against the War?
Or, are you not old enough to have done that?
And, I told you once, adress your elders with "yes, sir" and "no, sir" and "yes, ma'am" and "no, ma'am". Don't make me take my belt of and pull your pants down to whip you.
Son, I haven't spit on anyone... civilian or otherwise. Unlike you, I'm not wired that way. So your conservative conditioned response if misplaced.

But I can tell you there are some conservatives on other threads who laugh at the injuries suffered by the troops. Apparently the dividing line is their politics... and these 'nice' people haven't served a day in their life.

They're more interested in the capitalistic mantra of cons!

Why did the admin send some of these individuals out of the country as the subpenas were happening?
Pickering needs to testify behind close doors to obtain an honest statement from him why he only focused on lower level State Department officials without there being claims of confidentially clouding the truth. Later there will be a public hearing.
Patrick Kennedy, who Pickering thought was too high up to interview, is now identified as a participant.
The Pickering report was a hack job on low level career employees.

You never answered the question of where we got our intel from, moron. You know Clinton destroyed our intelligence capabilities (search Fill Clinton CIA human rights purge and just start reading). So, where did we get our intelligence on Iraq from?
Who vetted that intel?
Vallerie Plame, that's who.
No, bushie boy's intel came from bushie boy son.

You're a sick little fraud, lady. Whine like a frightened kitten when a liberal makes a comment, ignore it when a wingnut does the same.

And the funny thing is, you're ok that his situational assessment wasn't accepted and cost American lives.
Shinseki wanted a Vietnam-sized force in Iraq, which would have accomplished nothing other than providing more targets.

Shinseki was a Clinton political appointee.

Shinseki now has the VA in chaos, with even Democrats calling for his head.

Who would have thought being bitten by a turtle is such a problem that we need a special code for it?
The moron is a Rand Paul fan.

So all bites are alike, eh??

Let's lump in all cat bites, dog bites, alligator bites, turtle bites, fox bites, wolf bites, bear bites, etc into one category, ignoring the diseases that can be spread by various animal bites.

You follow idiots like Rand Paul because you're as ignorant as he is.

Think he uses one code for all sorts of eye problems in his practice??

Oh no, that'd be stupid, says Mr. Paul.

Have you ever had an original thought??

Seems since Gunner ran off with Fred, you've been howling at the moon and talking more stupid than before.

This Limbaugh idea you have that the right is comprised of highly informed voters is proven wrong by your flow of erroneous posts.
Many of the 47% that you right whiners call moochers actually work for a living. A family of 4 can have both parents working full time minimum wage jobs & yet still not pay federal income tax.
Some worked their entire lives & now are retired. You call; them uneducated? Really?
You & Romney are so uniformed as to who makes up that 47%.
Famous diabetics:

Halle Barre - Actress
James Brown - Singer
Ralph Bunch - Nobel Peace Winner, U.N. Diplomat
James Cagney - Actor
Douglas Cairns - first pilot to fly around the world
Johnny Cash - Musician
Carol Channing - Singer and actress
Bobby Clarke - NHL (Philadelphia Flyers)
Ty Cobb - MLB (Detroit Tigers)
Scott Coleman - 1st man to swim the English Channel
Bill Davidson - Harley-Davidson Motorcycles
Rick Dudley - Hockey
Scott Dunton - World class surfer
Thomas Edison - Inventor
Mick Fleetwood - Musician (Fleetwood Mac)
Curt Frasier - NHL (Chicago Black Hawks)
"Smokin' Joe" Frazier - Boxer
Kris Freeman - US Olympic cross country skiing team
Joe Gibbs - NFL Washington Redskins coach
Gary Hall, Jr.- US Olympic Gold Medalist (swimming)
Chuck Heidenrich - Skier

You get the picture. That was only a small sample. Diabetics come in all shapes and sizes and from all walks of life.

But tell me why YOU like bureaucracy and an overbloated government that can't even tie its own shoelaces.

Then the public testimony, where they dare not contradict their deposition.

The courts will be tied up with lawyers arguing over the extent of the bite, the exact species of the turtle, the psychological damages to their client and the monetary compensation their client should be entitled to.
The next group of lawyers will be waiting in line apparently to argue the thickness and height of a pole their client ran into.
If this weren't reality and so unbelievable, it would be hilarious as an SNL skit.
Carol plans to sue the cigarette companies when her lung cancer diagnosis comes.

Events proved Shinsecki correct. As everyone knows.

We were spread so thin, we guarded the oil ministry in Iraq while the Museums and other Government Offices were looted by the Iraqi Army which Bush's boy Paul Bremer disbanded.

"Nice job, Paulie."

Shinsecki was right. We needed more troops.

As for your earlier comments on the 'tamed' Gaddafi, who could have been more tamed than Saddam, with the no fly zone in place for 10 years??

And the WMD inspectors were in Iraq, telling all that there were no WMD's//

Bush pulled them out and went on to make up lies about WMD's, stampeding the nation to a failed war.

And in the end, he surrendered to the Iraqi's.

there is nothing Obama could do that would come close to the stupidity and failure that Bush was.

Real question here. Could you figure out Obama's enemy list without all the myriad of Progressive sites hand holding you and pointing the way for you? We know Sonic is a victim. How about you?
Obama has no enemies, maybe haters but no enemies. Unless of course, we're including you conservatives spreading your anti American views: like Rush Limbaugh. As far as the Muslim world goes, they just don't like America and Obama just happens to be the leader of America. Knowing that, true Americans would get behind the president understanding that he made a sacrifice by attracting hate some people who would otherwise not hate him but, his biggest enemies are y'all. Hate causes a sane person to do insane things. Do I need to name all of America martyrs to prove my point? There's only 2 types of people that hate Obama or dislike him. You have those that didn't like him anyway because, of his color &, those that supported him in the beginning hoping he as a Blackman would not try to equalize Americas fortune but, reverse them making black people the priority of success. When he didn't do that & instead tried to enforce equality, he lost supporters. Pro black supporters only out for the success of a people instead of the betterment of a nation. Like some of you on this thread, that's the reason America remains stuck in a rut of factions instead of unity. George W Bush was very incompetent & though I didn't agree with nearly anything he proposed, I didn't wish for him to fail. I understood that if he failed, America failed. You people see an Obama failure as a political advantage in hopes of taking back the White House. And you call yourselves Americans! I didn't agree with the Iraq war but, I didn't wish harm or death soon the American soldiers! I make up my own mind. I don't need guidance from a computer. I'm a firm believer in,"the truth will present itself, even in the mouth of a liar!"
