<quoted text> Now you're making up stuff Galt & putting words in my mouth. First of all, I'm not naive enough to believe that Al Qaeda is the main force in the war going on in Syria against Assad & his regime. Al Qaeda may be aiding in the fight but, thus war didn't start with Al Qaeda. Civilian rebels of Syria & the Assad regime started the conflict so, it's not Al Qaeda's war.
Secondly, Russia has been aiding tyrannical regimes, saying America to interfere. The Assad regime are tyrants. Without interference, they will likely slaughter their entire civilian population. Again, I guess you're cool with that huh Galt?
Assad has nothing to gain and everything to lose by "slaughtering the entire civilian population."

On the other hand, if Assad slaughters all the Islamic radicals, including Al Qaeda, that's a big plus for the US.

The idea that there are democratic rebels in Syria who have any chance of prevailing in the government is as ridiculous as it was in Egypt and Libya. If Assad falls, what will follow will be worse.

You have a problem with that?
Because you clearly confuse your opinions for some sort of actual facts. I guess since you're not in the real, you can't help but to make things up as you go along!
However, just to be fair, feel free to counter the source.
How long should I wait, son?
Still can't summarize it, eh?

Hee, Hee.

Your story of kiddies with arms full of books is a rare fairy tale.
Besides, used book stores and flea markets can provide inexpensive books far more efficiently than the government bureaucracy.
Well, very soon now we'll only have one Barnes and Noble in Hawaii.

Even used bookstores are rare.

After all, I've already asked you for your cliff note version. It would appear you don't have one.

People who have had near death experiences often describe a deep and all-encompassing sense of peace and love emanating from "the source". I think God and "the source" are one and the same.
I have no issue with the existence or presence of God or *A* God. In fact, I am *PRO* God in a more general sense than what is found inside of popular culture.

I just have a problem with folks laying claim to God and God's intentions. It's like someone trying to sell tickets to a beautiful sunset or Love. No one should profit financially or otherwise from a naturally occurring event. Someone finds the DNA snippet for, say, brown eyes and wants to get a patent on its discovery? Another person finds the Bible, reads it, finds the contents to be appealing and decides to profit from it.

I saw the life story of John Merrick again last night(Elephant Man) and I will admit that my eyes teared up and my throat closed tight many times during my watching it. People paid money to view his agony and even to add to it with pokes and mean laughter.

In this same vein of deviant opportunism, I place the users of God who gain at the expense of pain in others. It is spiritual usury.

No son you did. You wanted to paraphrase. I simply quoted.... which it would appear you simply cannot do!

Just because you CAN'T quote and need 'guess' at your saying really doesn't make you superior in the least.

I have no inconsistencies like you, son.

After all, I had a quote AND a source.

You certainly can't say the same, let alone come close to being that accurate!

Mostly free internet access for those without computers, plus a warm place to camp out all day for homeless people.
Municipal and school libraries are a drain on strained budgets.
Most companies eliminated corporate libraries years ago because the money was much better spent on on-line resources.
It is conceivable, however, that an entire life could be spent online making a paycheck, purchasing good and services, pursuing social intercourse through social networks and email and acquiring an education - all without ever interacting with another human being in person.

There are wise business and political leaders who understand the great importance of 'being there' and pressing flesh, email and the web aside.

In this sense, Local libraries still have great potential for the Real McCoy interactions of humanity and what they have to offer. Libraries are much more or *can* be much more than just public repositories of books, magazines and videos.

Kids can be read to on Sundays in groups. Why can't they just read to themselves at home on a computer? Well, they can but they'd miss the laughter, the shared emotions and the education, the nurturing of their emotional intelligence.

Libraries should never be allowed to die.

It can be stated rather stoically that America's best years are behind her and that this began with the installation of the Magic Negro as King.

Nothing happens in a vacuum. China, Russia, Europe the Muslim world are all rising while the Boy Messiah's America is sinking into the sickness of Socialism and entrancing navel gazing. It is a historical moment worth noting.

In this case, al qaida and the rebel Syrian alliance are the 'good guys' against the tyranny of Assad's illegitimate regime. By Assad using chemical warfare on his own people , he has lost all legitimacy to rule the country.

If it's a 'sell out' you're looking for son, look no further than conservatives.

And in this case, I don't think it's the ultra right wing either!

I can quote Shakespeare to impress people even though I may have no clue what the hell is being said inside my Copy-n-Paste.

This is what you are attempting and it falls flat, Mr. Jerk.

Hang it up. Try quoting Larry Flynt like lily does. At least she understands what the hell she's quoting(I think).

You STILL can't tell me what was in that long Copy-n-Paste of yours. You are like the little kid in the 500th row of the baseball stadium quoting Francis Scott Key while belting out pregame: "Jose' can you see?...."

It is written that all things become clear at the moment of death.

Hang in there, Dood. In the meantime, though, don't talk through your underpants.
